Mark Reviews John Waters’ Multiple Maniacs [Criterion Collection Blu-ray Review]

21 March 2017 9:02 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

From the opening of Multiple Maniacs when Mr. David introduces us to Lady Divine’s Cavalcade of Perversion are we being introduced to John Waters’ own perversion?  And how long do we want to stay? Divine’s entrance is as an engorged Elizabeth Taylor bathed in shimmering white light furthering the early mystique of Divine and her Cavacade. From robbing to rosaries, movie posters to murder John Waters is “performing acts” as we have truly entered Waters’ World.

“Produced, directed, written, filmed, and edited by John Waters” – auteur: check. Multiple Maniacs is not a high-budget film and was certainly never screened before the hours of midnight in the 1970’s. Waters made the film for $5000 borrowed from his father also borrowing the land surrounding their house to set the film. During the making of his first film, Mondo Trasho, he was arrested by the police so the early scenes of Multiple Maniacs »

28 Best Drunk Scenes in Film

17 March 2017 2:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, arguably the biggest drinking holiday of the year, we looked at some of the best drunk moments to grace the silver screen. From Humphrey Bogart’s classic, heartbreaking “of all the gin joints” speech in “Casablanca,” to the utterly ridiculous scene in “Team America” when the puppets spew their guts up, here are the 28 best drunk scenes on film.

Leaving Las Vegas” — Booze Run

Although not a traditional “drunk scene,” the opening scene of “Leaving Las Vegas” — which sees Nicolas Cage’s Ben Sanderson dancing through a liquor aisle piling his cart sky high with booze — is as good a prelude to this list as any.

Arthur” — Introducing Princess Gloria

Dudley Moore’s Arthur spends the majority of the film tipping back drinks, but his introduction of “Princess Gloria” to his aunt and uncle at a restaurant — and his insistence that Rhode Island could »

A New Video Essay Explores The Censorship & Evolution Of ‘South Park’

15 March 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Few TV shows have managed to be as continually button-pushing as Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s “South Park.” Certainly the show has been surpassed from time to time by other audacious material, but nothing has been so enduringly offensive as “South Park”; the show has continually rallied, found some new sensitive subject, and summarily torn it to bits (it was, after all, the first show to ever be labeled TV Ma).

Anime Sensation ‘Your Name’ Comes to U.S. Shores with New Trailer

13 March 2017 11:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Though I’d hardly consider myself an expert in the field of Japanese animation, I was nevertheless surprised to read that, without adjusting for inflation, a 2016 feature called Your Name is the highest-grossing film of its kind, having surpassed previous title-holder Spirited Away during an initial theatrical run. It was only a matter of time before the film arrived in the United States — an occasion now scheduled for next month, thanks to the always adventurous Funimation Films.

So there are now dubbed and subbed trailers. As is customary with anime, you’re best-off watching the thing in its original Japanese, both for the fact that the language is, of course, what’s originally intended, and perhaps more pressingly because the pop-rock song playing over the whole thing is a lot more tolerable when you don’t have to hear it in English.

Watch Trey Parker and Matt Stone Crack Up in Sound Booth for Human Centipad

6 March 2017 2:30 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

On the one hand I completely envy the lives of guys like Trey Parker and Matt Stone.  They’re millionaires.  They have access to everything Hollywood and yet their careers are based on making fun of the establishment.  It seems as though these two much have the most amazingly fun time making not only South Park but all of their films and plays.  But on the other hand I don’t think people realize how hard these guys actually work.  They make an episode of South Park every 6 days and have been doing so for over 20 years.  How they even

Josh Gad’s Kids Are ‘a Little’ Confused By His Beauty and the Beast Poster: ‘I Look Like a Psychopath’

3 March 2017 8:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Josh Gad is no stranger to the Disney universe.

He’s known worldwide for his portrayal of Olaf, everyone’s favorite snowman, in Frozen, but his turn as LeFou in Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast will be the first time his kids will actually get to watch their dad in a film.

“What’s funny is this will be the first time that they actually see Daddy in the flesh on screen,” Gad, 36, told reporters during the film’s world premiere Thursday at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood, California.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands Open Beta Begins Next Week, February 23

16 February 2017 10:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ghost Recon: Wildlands‘ open beta is due to kick off next week, February 23, Ubisoft has announced. Due to run concurrently on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, the trial period comes just weeks after the conclusion of Wildlands‘ closed beta, which tasked players with infiltrating the open-world shooter’s Itacua region in order to dismantle the Santa Blanca cartel by whatever means necessary.

Ubisoft has been championing the open-ended nature of Wildlands since its announcement in 2015, having stated previously that a wide range of “vehicles, weapons, and equipment” are available for operatives in order to get the job done however they see fit.

If you weren’t one of the lucky few to be picked for the closed beta, you’ll be happy to hear that next week’s version includes all of the same content, as well as an additional province – Montuyoc – which is located in the “Bolivian Altiplano region. »

What Is the Most Ridiculous Sex Scene From a Movie? — IndieWire Critics Survey

13 February 2017 9:44 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In dubious honor of “Fifty Shades Darker,” what is the most ridiculous sex scene from a movie?

Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC), Vulture/Film Comment

I’m sure others will easily top this, but I always think of Sylvester Stallone and Sharon Stone in the terrible 1994 action film “The Specialist,” having laboriously glossy, oiled, carefully pube-concealing, solemn, positionally exhausting intercourse while mouthing tedious expository dialogue in a shower that appears to be the size of a studio apartment. The 90s were a boom time for bad movie sex, and this is Hall of Fame level in that so much money, time and effort has gone »

South Park: The Fractured But Whole Suffers A Second Delay

9 February 2017 10:10 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Honestly, is anyone really surprised? Since being announced by Ubisoft at E3 2015, further details for South Park: The Fractured But Whole have been scarce at best and non-existent at worst. In fact, ever since the creators of the TV show – Trey Parker and Matt Stone – strolled on stage to confirm that they were once again collaborating with the developer to pen a follow-up to the Stick of Truth, we’ve barely heard a peep. The last new snippet of gameplay footage came during last year’s Gamescom, which was followed thereafter by confirmation of the RPG’s initial delay.

According to Ubisoft’s latest earning’s call today (via VideoGamer), it confirmed that the revised Q1 2017 date was no longer applicable for the return of Cartman, Stan, Kenny and Kyle, with the new launch window pegging it for the company’s 2017-18 fiscal year. It’s a rather vague approximation, »

South Park Backs Off Trump Politics In Upcoming Season!

3 February 2017 12:40 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

In the past few seasons of South Park, we have seen Mr. Garrison (Rip Mr. Hand) decide to run for President of the United States, and he has basically been turned into a caricature of President Trump. According to Trey Parker and Matt Stone (the creators of South Park) they will no longer focus much attention on politics, as to them, "It’s not something you can make fun of." Check out the quotes from their interview with ABC news:

Trey Parker: “They’re already going out and doing the comedy, it’s not something you can make fun of. It’s tricky and it’s really tricky now as satire has become reality. We were really trying to make fun of what was going on [last season] but we couldn’t keep up. What was actually happening was way funnier than anything we could come up with. So we »

South Park Creators Say They’ll “Back Off” From Poking Fun At Donald Trump

2 February 2017 6:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Over the past couple of years, South Park has found great success with serialized seasons and a slow-burning storyline which has seen former school teacher, Mr. Garrison, become a Donald Trump proxy that the series has used to mercilessly bash the current President of the United States.

However, in a twist that’s fair to say that no one will have seen coming, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have now revealed that they’re planning on backing off from lampooning arguably the biggest personality in American politics right now. Considering the fact that they could probably get a season’s worth of stories from the past week alone, why are they doing this?

Well, it’s not because they’re fans of the President. Instead, they just don’t see how they could possibly top his real-life antics in the animated series.

‘South Park’ Creators Backing Off On Mocking Donald Trump

2 February 2017 5:29 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

You know we’re in a new world order when the new political reality is even too ridiculous for South Park to make fun of. The Comedy Central show’s creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in an interview that it’s gotten trickier “because satire has become a reality.” Season 20 of South Park reflected the political rise of Donald Trump via Trump-esque character Mr. Garrison. But the comedy became more challenging as the season went… »

‘South Park’ Creators Say They’ll ‘Back Off’ on Donald Trump Jokes (Video)

2 February 2017 2:49 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

If you were hoping that “South Park” would return to Comedy Central with some scathing satire of Donald Trump, prepare to be disappointed. In an interview with Australia’s ABC News, show creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone said that they will “back off” from Trump and political humor when they write new “South Park” episodes later this year. But Parker and Stone aren’t easing up on Trump because they like him or fear backlash. They’re easing up because they have no idea how to make today’s political events look more ridiculous.

'South Park' to Back Off Trump Administration: "They’re Already Going Out and Doing the Comedy"

2 February 2017 2:04 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Matt Stone and Trey Parker are likely going to back off Donald Trump next season in South Park because it is just too exhausting for the Comedy Central cartoon to keep up with the outlandishness of the actual president. 

Parker and Stone discussed the plan during a Thursday interview with ABC News in Australia while the two were in Melbourne promoting their Broadway hit, The Book of Mormon. 

“It feels like it’s going to be more difficult,” Stone said of an attempt to keep up with Trump from week to week.

Parker added, “They’re already going out and doing »

South Park’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone Say Donald Trump is Too Hard to Satirize

2 February 2017 4:50 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

In what might be considered somewhat shocking, the creators of South Park, Matt Parker and Trey Stone have “backed off” of political comedy.  While the series is definitely representing Donald Trump in its own way, Stone and Parker have made the conscious decision to not make fun of the current political landscape.  At least, for now.  In a recent interview with Australian news show 7.30, here’s what the two had to say: “It’s tricky now because satire has become reality,” Parker told 7.30. It’s really hard to make fun of and in the last season of South Park, which just

What Is an Egot? The Grand Slam of Show Business — Explained

24 January 2017 10:17 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It’s the most coveted honor in all of Hollywood: the Egot.

Representing the top awards in television (Emmy), music (Grammy), film (Oscar), and theater (Tony), it’s considered the grand slam of show business — a four of a kind sweep that only the rarest of stars have been able to achieve.

The term was coined by Miami Vice actor Philip Michael Thomas, who first told it to the Associated Press in 1984 at the height of the NBC action show’s success. “That stands for Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony,” he said. “Hopefully in the next five years I will win all those awards. »
