Why was Ghostbusters so unfunny?

22 July 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on the Ghostbusters reboot…

I have only one requirement of a comedy: It must make me laugh. A chuckle is fine. A smile or a grin is appreciated. A knee slap is great. However if you promise me a comedy, at some point i’m going to have to laugh. The Jackass movies are childish larks of grown men performing ridiculous stunts and abuse to themselves, but when those guys jump into a shopping cart and crash into a garbage dumpster, I’m laughing. Or when i’m watching Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon doing their Michael Caine impressions over a nice meal, I’m laughing. Or when the Kristen Wiig and the cast of Bridesmaids are dealing with a bout of food poisoning and desperate to find a private place to void their bowels, I’m laughing. Not all comedies work and humor is very much a subjective experience. »

Jaws The Revenge: How the sequel went so horribly wrong

21 July 2016 9:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 25, 2016

It's famously one of the worst sequels ever, but why did Jaws The Revenge go so wrong? Ryan looks at its disastrous nine-month production...

It's an oft-repeated adage that nobody sets out to make a bad movie, but Jaws The Revenge is so legendarily, comically bad that it almost looks like an inside job. The fishy sequel, released in 1987 to scathing reviews, famously stars a rubbery shark that growls when its head rears out of the water, Michael Caine spouting bizarre dialogue and some of the most glaring continuity errors this side of an Ed Wood movie.

What separates Jaws The Revenge from the usual bad-movie crowd is its otherwise decent pedigree. It was the product of a major Hollywood studio. The budget was generous. The director, Joseph Sargent, was far from a hack - a veteran of TV and film, he'd previously made the classic thriller »

'Difficult People': How Julie Klausner Graduated from TV Superfan to TV Queen

14 July 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"When did comedies become half-hour dramas?"

These words, uttered by Billy Eichner via the acid pen of Julie Klausner in the newly launched second season of her Hulu sitcom Difficult People, come from a place of love. Klausner loves TV like a mother loves her child – which is to say she always wants it to do and be better. A lifelong acolyte of the medium, she's spent most of her life hovering around its fringes – consuming it by the binge-ful, recapping shows online, eventually landing staff writing gigs here and there. »

‘Blow Out’: Brian De Palma’s Thrillingly Bleak, Prescient View of America

13 July 2016 10:39 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In a career fixated on the machinations of filmmaking presented through both a carnal and political eye, Brian De Palma’s fascinations converged idyllically with Blow Out. In his ode to the conceit of Blow UpMichelangelo Antonioni’s deeply influential English-language debut, released 15 years prior — as well as the aural intrigue of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation, De Palma constructs a conspiracy thriller as euphorically entertaining as it is devastatingly bleak.

In a fake-out opening — shot by Steadicam inventor Garrett Brown — that combines the voyeurism, nudity, and threat of murder that are De Palma’s calling cards, we see Coed Frenzy, the fifth movie in two years that sound technician Jack Terry (John Travolta) has done for the shlock director employing him. By showing the artifice of the B-movie, this film-in-a-film positions Blow Out as a more mature offering from the filmmaker, explicitly foreshadowed during the split-screen opening »

Second Opinion – Now You See Me 2 (2016)

10 July 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now You See Me 2, 2016.

Directed by Jon M. Chu.

Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson, Lizzy Caplan, Morgan Freeman, Daniel Radcliffe and Michael Caine.

 

Synopsis:

The Four Horsemen resurface and are forcibly recruited by a tech genius to pull off their most impossible heist yet.

2013’s Now You See Me was a surprisingly entertaining popcorn film with a ludicrous plot and obvious twists and turns. The sequel is no different when it comes to delivering a highly stupid and implausible script but it is a really fun film that’s easy to watch and entertaining as long as you don’t think too much about it.

This time around the Horsemen have been in hiding for a year after their dramatic getaway at the end of the last film. When they stage their big comeback it doesn’t go entirely to plan and they end up »

Now You See Me 2 Review

4 July 2016 1:36 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With a cast that included Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman, one hell of a hook (stage magicians pull off daring heists as part of their shows), and some great visuals, 2013’s Now You See Me was a refreshing slice of entertainment that enjoyed massive success at the box office. Quadrupling it’s budget was always a sign that a sequel would come our way, and here we are. Now You See Me 2 sees the Horsemen (Eisenberg, Harrelson, Dave Franco and newcomer Lizzie Caplan) gone to ground after the events of the first film left them wanted fugitives. When their secretive handler Dylan Rhodes (Ruffalo) assigns them the task of exposing a corrupt businessman, they find themselves getting a taste of their own medicine, captured and forced to steal a revolutionary computer chip for reclusive technology prodigy Walter Mabry (Daniel Radcliffe). Sequels always go bigger and bolder, »

Movie Review – Now You See Me 2 (2016)

4 July 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now You See Me 2, 2016.

Directed by Jon M. Chu.

Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan, Jay Chou, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman.

Synopsis:

The Four Horsemen, now with a new recruit, are taken hostage by a tech wizard who forces them to carry out a seemingly impossible heist.

At the end of the last film, it is revealed that FBI agent Dylan (Mark Ruffalo) was the Fool; the omnipotent being, capable to hatch a convoluted, albeit nonsensical, plan to unite the greatest of Earth’s magician. Dylan had managed to lure in the Four Horseman: Danny (Jesse Eisenberg), Merritt (Woody Harrelson), Jack (Dave Franco), and Henley (Isla Fisher). It was, quite frankly, a tacked on ending that made minimal sense, and created greater plot holes to an already messy story. In other words, it was the daft, blockbuster spectacle that came prior »
