Beyond Fright – Can You Believe These Were All Saturday Morning Cartoons?!

5 November 2012 1:55 PM, PST | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Several months ago, I was working on a movie review of the Jim Carrey flick The Mask for the Amoeba website movie blog “Movies We Like”. (I’d link to it, but my review section over there is currently down. Here is the link for future reference though!) As I was revisiting the movie and prepping my review, I suddenly had a vague memory of a cartoon version of The Mask. Hmm… a quick You Tube search later confirmed it. There was in fact a cartoon of The Mask and not only that, but Ace Ventura too. Not only was there a cartoon for two different Jim Carrey movies, but there was even an episode of The Mask in which Ace Ventura was the guest star!?! On a whim, I typed in Dumb And Dumber into You Tube and to my shock, there was a cartoon version of that too! »

Watch: Ralph Macchio's 'Karate Kid' Screen Test, a Hilarious Take on 'Back to the Future,' and Cats Gone Wild

12 September 2012 9:47 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Welcome to Morning Watch, our daily roundup of funny/interesting/bizarre/creative/informative videos for you to start your day with. The other day Kate Winslet's Titanic screen test made the rounds, which prompted Flavorwire to collect some of their favorite actor and actress screen tests lying around online. The one we liked most was this one, featuring Ralph Macchio (and Pat Morita) testing for The Karate Kid. What's most enjoyable here is watching Macchio learn about the story and his character's motivations for the first time. Even if he's already read the script, you can tell he's still processing it, becoming excited when it all comes together for him as he compares the story to Rocky. The video is intercut with Morita's screen test, making it look as...

Strangest & Most Controversial Moments In the History of the Academy Awards

23 February 2012 5:49 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The saying goes: If Hollywood is really the movie capital of the world, then Oscar night is the world’s biggest wrap party, and like all parties, each event comes with unwelcome guests, embarrassing situations, strange fashions and controversial moments. In fact, controversy and the Oscars seem to go hand in hand and despite the fact that the Academy Awards are, for the most part, an elegant and tightly controlled affair, some very strange things do occur. Let’s take a look back through the history of the Academy Awards, and some of it’s strangest and more controversial moments – which sadly were also the most memorable.

4 January 2012 1:52 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This week sees the release of Goon, the story of deadbeat Doug (played by Seann William-Scott), a lost soul searching for his place in the world and finding it on the bloodied ice rink of Pro-Hockey. After a display of strength Doug is signed up, not to play but to fight as the team’s Goon. From the writer of Superbad and Ppineapple Express this is sure to be an entertaining and sharp movie.

Goon arrives in cinemas Friday 6th January and to honour its release we’ve been thinking of some of our favourite sporting films – so let’s get the ball (or in this case the puck) rolling.
