11 Movie Scenes that are Vicariously Embarrassing to Watch

9 April 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I love how movies make you feel certain emotions as you watch them. It's one of my favorite parts about going to the movies. I always find it interesting, though, when I get vicariously embarrassed during awkward moments. Meaning I am embarrassed for the characters in the movie in the positions that they are put in. I started thinking about this while I was watching Goodfellas over the weekend. Is it just me, or does it seem like this movie is on every other day? Anyway, There's a scene where Joe Pesci starts to get pissed off at Ray Liotta for telling him he was a funny guy. The scene went from being fun to uncomfortable very fast, and I started to feel embarrassed for Liotta's character. 

I started to think of what other movies that made me feel like that, and came up with the following list of films. »

Blum On Carnahan's "Stretch," "Jem" Movie

3 April 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"The Grey" and "Smokin Aces" director Joe Carnahan's controversial new drama "Stretch" was pulled from the release calendar a while back with many wondering when we will ever get to see it.

The story stars Patrick Wilson as a chauffeur whose new ride is a devious billionaire (Chris Pine). Their night together leads to increasingly dangerous encounters. Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Ed Helms, and Ray Liotta also star.

Universal had planned a wide release but essentially dropped the movie soon after scheduling it. The film's producer Jason Blum has now spoken about the release date incident and says there is a chance it could end up at Toronto this year. He tells Collider:

"What happened with it was that all of the movies that we make, we don't announce and date them wide until they're finished. We got ahead of ourselves with Stretch and dated the movie.

Producer Jason Blum Explains Why Joe Carnahan’s Stretch Lost Its Release Date and When We Might See the Movie

3 April 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I was incredibly bummed when Joe Carnahan's Stretch was pulled from the calendar.  I'm a huge fan of the director (The Grey was my favorite film of 2012), and Stretch has a catchy premise: Patrick Wilson plays a chauffeur who picks up a difficult and devious billionaire, played in a cameo by Chris Pine.  As the night goes on, their interaction leads to increasingly dangerous encounters.  Jessica Alba, Brooklyn DeckerEd Helms, and Ray Liotta also appear in the film.  The movie was supposed to have a wide release, but Universal concluded it would be unwise to spend $20 million to $40 million to distribute the movie, so they dropped it. Yesterday, we spoke with producer Jason Blum for his new film, Oculus, and he also provided an update on the status of Stretch, and when we might finally see the film.  Hit the jump for more. Collider: It was so disappointing »

David Milch Extends Overall Deal With HBO

2 April 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: There are few relationships between a network and creator that have been as enduring as the one between David Milch and HBO. Now it has been extended with a new overall deal, which will keep Milch exclusive to HBO in television for two more years, bringing his tenure at the pay cable network to 14 years. Milch has been at HBO since 2002, when he embarked on developing his first project there, cult drama Deadwood, and under an overall deal since 2005. The relationship has yielded five pilots, three of which — Deadwood, John From Cincinnati and Luck – went to series. Milch’s most recent project at HBO was drama pilot The Money, about wealth and corruption among the super elite, which focused on an American mogul and patriarch (Brendan Gleeson) who wields power and influence to expand his media empire and control his family. HBO opted not to go forward with the pilot, »

New ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ Stills Sneak Online

31 March 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

After spending nine years in an information vacuum, Robert Rodriguez is finally rewarding our patience as the anticipation of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For mounts.

A lot can happen in almost a decade, the main problem for Rodriguez is that several members of his original cast have had to be replaced for various reasons. Dennis Haysbert of 24 and The Unit fame is taking over the role of Manute, a part played by the late Michael Clarke Duncan, other replacements include Josh Brolin who is taking over Clive Owens Dwight and Jamie Chung will now wield Miho’s sword replacing Devon Aoki.

The film will follow the same pattern as the first, and is being shot in the same beautiful way, with the writer of the graphic novel on which the films are based – Frank Miller, stepping into a co-directing seat. This time around we’re also going 3D. »

Crazy Eyes Feature In New Pics From Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

31 March 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Equipped with the most unwieldy title since Precious: Based On The Novel Push By SapphireFrank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For has promised to be as violent, sexual, and stylized as its less wordy predecessor Sin City. This is borne out by a new batch of pictures (mostly screenshots) from the film, featuring Eva Green’s intense gaze, scantily clad women, and bloody men. 

Times have not really changed in Sin City – it’s still a land of violent criminals, badass pole dancers, and men who are better than they should be. We have the return of Bruce Willis and Jessica Alba (for a moment at least), and we know that Mickey Rourke will be back to reprise his role as Marv (who I thought died in the last one, but whatever).

Most of these newly released pictures highlight newcomers to the franchise, including Eva Green as Ava Lord, »

Eight new images from Sin City: A Dame to Kill For have been released online.  The film stars Josh Brolin as the physically-altered Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell.  All of these images could be glimpsed briefly in the trailer, but these are some nice, higher-resolution stills, which is important when so much of the film's impact will probably be in the visuals.

Eva Green heads up new batch of images from Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

30 March 2014 11:48 PM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For has released a new batch of images online, in which the sleaze and scuzz of the first film appears to be back with a vengeance. The images give us a good overview of some of the sequel’s new cast members, including a sultry Eva Green, scowling Josh Brolin and a downright unhinged-looking Ray Liotta. There’s also room for old favourites Jessica Alba and Bruce Willis to get a look in, with Nancy and Hartigan looking as grim-faced as ever. A word also for Dennis Haysbert, who looks particularly imposing...

More Skin & Sleaze In New Pics From 'Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For'

29 March 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Eva Green is certainly making an impression in 2014. She's already turning heads and wagging tongues thanks to a rather memorable sex scene in "300: Rise Of An Empire," and she looks ready to scare in Showtime's forthcoming series "Penny Dreadful." Additionally, at the end of the summer, she'll be vamping once again in "Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" as Ava Lord, and some new pics from the movie have arrived, highlighting her green eyes and much more of the cast. This new set of pics gives fresh looks at Ray Liotta (Joey), Jamie Chung (Miho), Jessica Alba (Nancy Callahan), Powers Boothe (Senator Roarke), Dennis Haysbert (Manute) and more. The movie, of course, is Robert Rodriguez's sequel to the hit "Sin City," and he doesn't look to be changing anything. If it ain't broke....you get the idea. But does this style still look fresh, or is it dated? »

Ladies & Gentlemen! It’s The ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Conference Report!

28 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’ve been a Muppets/Sesame Street fan since I was aware of television, so what better way for me to spend a Tuesday afternoon than to attend the Muppets Most Wanted press conference?! Full of gags from beginning to end, the film’s main stars – Kermit The Frog, Miss Piggy, Constantine and Ricky Gervais – were on overdrive, and here’s just a snippet of what they had to say.

Edith Bowman (Eb): Kermit, I’ve got to say I’m loving seeing you in a kind of James Bond-style leading role in this film.

Kermit (K): Well, was James Bond ever in prison?…I think of myself as kind of getting to do a bit of an action role in this. It’s something I haven’t done before. In order to prepare for that role I watched all of Bruce Willis’ movies, and when that didn »

Movie Review - Muppets Most Wanted (2014)

28 March 2014 12:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Muppets Most Wanted, 2014.

Directed by James Bobin.

Starring Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, Ty Burrell, Jermaine Clement, Ray Liotta, Danny Trejo and featuring the voice talent of Steve Whitmire, Eric Jacobson, Dave Goelz, Bill Barretta and Peter Linz.

Synopsis:

While on a grand world tour, The Muppets find themselves wrapped into an European jewel-heist caper headed by a Kermit the Frog look-alike and his dastardly sidekick.

When it was released in 1979, The Muppet Movie was a stage for Jim Henson and his Muppet cohorts to take their relatively simple TV show and expand and develop their techniques as puppeteers to show off what they could really do. They dreamt big and it paid off. Its sequel The Great Muppet Caper on the other hand was just that - a sequel. It wasn't bad, nor was it inferior. The jokes were all solid, the writing was great and the songs were brilliantly executed, »

Dan Harmon Ponders a ‘Community’ Movie at Paleyfest

27 March 2014 12:13 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

While the fate of NBC’s “Community” has never been certain — the comedy is reaching the end of its fifth season with no official renewal yet — creator Dan Harmon and the cast expressed hope for the “six seasons and a movie” goal Wednesday at Paleyfest in La’s Dolby Theatre.

“It’s happening,” yelled Gillian Jacobs, on a pending sixth season to screams from the crowd. “Come on!”

“I think we know there’s going to be a sixth season since you guys will probably show up with pitchforks and torches,” followed Joel McHale, referring to the show’s ever-loyal fan base.

Harmon has been open about the possibility of a movie, expressing huge interest to make one, and only recently started to speculate on what it might be like.

“Tonight’s the first night I’ve ever put this much thought into what it would be,” Harmon told Variety. »
