‘The Auteur: Sister Bambi’ #1 pays tribute to B-movie schlock

19 May 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Auteur: Sister Bambi #1

Written by Rick Spears

Art by James Callahan

Colored by Luigi Anderson

Lettered by Sick Rears

Published by Oni Press

The first issue of the new volume of The Auteur: Sister Bambi is a sick and twisted delight. There is a warning on the credits page that says, “The shocking scenes you are about to see are not suggested for the weak or immature,” and that holds true throughout the book. However, for those depraved souls who can stomach the content, The Auteur: Sister Bambi #1 is sure to please.

To set the proper tone for the continuation of this series, Rick Spears begins the story with his John Waters-esque protagonist, Nathan T. Rex, pitching a film to three potential financiers – who happen to be both Nazis and identical triplets who are all obsessed with rape. Via flashback, we find out that Rex was kicked out »

Film Review: ‘Preggoland’

11 May 2015 6:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sometimes the plainest truths are nestled in the most outlandish absurdities, and so it proves in “Preggoland.” An amusing, extravagantly implausible farce that nonetheless makes a pointed argument about the perceived marginalization of childless women in modern society, Canadian helmer Jacob Tierney’s film shoots for the Judd Apatow-associated distaff appeal of “Bridesmaids,” albeit with a bleaker undertow and dimmer production values. Animated chiefly by the spiky gifts of actress and screenwriter Sonja Bennett — headlining proceedings as Ruth, a thirtysomething supermarket cashier who fakes a pregnancy with inevitably woeful consequences — “Preggoland” recently received a limited release in the U.S., though it’s on alternative platforms that this Toronto fest premiere will most likely come fully to term.

With the “womanchild” character type — the female equivalent of the immature, insolvent, mildly hedonistic man exemplified by Seth Rogen in “Knocked Up” or Mark Wahlberg in “Ted” — a growing presence in mainstream comedy, »

Danny Trejo Is 'Having a Blast' Being an 'Adventures of Puss in Boots' Bad Guy

8 May 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Danny Trejo is one of Hollywood's most prolific actors, having appeared in literally hundreds of projects since his career began in the early 1980s. The frequent Robert Rodriguez collaborator is often known for playing tough-as-nails badasses and grizzled villains, but that doesn't mean he shies away from the kid-friendly stuff.

One example is the Netflix's original animated series, "The Adventures of Puss in Boots," which follows the heroic moves of the swashbuckling feline we all know and love from "Shrek" and "Puss in Boots." Ok, Trejo still plays the villain in this one. But this time he's a cartoon named "El Moco" -- and if you're not familiar with the Spanish language, the translation for El Moco is mucus. Yup, his character is pretty much named "booger."

New episodes of "The Adventures of Puss in Boots" start streaming May 8, so we got the chance to catch up with with Danny »

Traditionally, the Oscars haven't been very comedy-friendly, but "Ricki And The Flash" is stacked with talent no academy could ignore. Written by Diablo Cody (Oscar winner for "Juno"), directed by Jonathan Demme (Oscar winner for "The Silence Of The Lambs") and starring Meryl Streep (winner of everything, always), the film follows the titular rock goddess as she attempts to reconcile with the family she neglected when fame came calling. Ricki's daughter is played by Streep's real-life daughter Mamie Gummer and her bandmate is played by real-life rock star Rick Springfield. Kevin Kline, Sebastian Stan and Empress of Broadway Audra McDonald also star. "Ricki And The Flash" comes out July 26. See it with your mom!

Watch: Danny Trejo Gets Animated in Exclusive Clip of Netflix Original 'The Adventures of Puss in Boots'

Every hero needs a villain, and Puss in Boots may have found the best one yet. In the second half of the stealthy cat's first season on Netflix, Puss will face off against El Moco, voiced by the instantly threatening Danny Trejo. In the clip above, Trejo's character tries to take over as the new town mayor and it's up to our hero Puss — and a barrel being operated by the old mayor — to stop him. Trejo took a few minutes to speak to Indiewire about the new role, saying, "He's a bad guy. He's a really mean, mean character without too many redeeming qualities about him. Puss in Boots needed a really good bad guy, and I'm the best. So they developed this character and he's big, mean and nasty."  "I loved him," Trejo said about his on-screen rival, Puss in Boots. "He is muy loco. It was a lot of fun, »

Adam Sandler's The Ridiculous Six causes more Native American controversy

4 May 2015 5:21 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Adam Sandler's upcoming Netflix comedy movie The Ridiculous Six has become embroiled in even more controversy

Actress Allison Young claimed to msnbc that make-up teams have been darkening the skin of actors to make them look more Native American.

The Western satire previously came under fire after Navajo actors condemned the film as being "totally disrespectful" towards their culture.

Nine people previously left the film's set after taking offence over Native American women being called 'Beaver's Breath' and 'No Bra', as well as a scene with a Native American squatting to urinate while smoking a peace pipe.

Young said of her experience shooting the film: "I'm full-blooded Navajo and they bronzed me. I was quite confused.

"That says something when the cultural advisor for the film quits because he's offended."

Netflix previously dismissed the concerns, arguing that the satire is meant to be "ridiculous".

Outrage Watch: Adam Sandler's 'Ridiculous 6' slammed as 'a total disgrace' - and not for the reasons you'd expect

30 April 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Adam Sandler's latest movie is being called "a total disgrace" -- and not for the usual reasons. Bruce Klinekole, an Apache man who was hired on as the comedy-western's Native American cultural consultant, has bashed the Netflix original project in a new interview conducted after he and a group of other Native American cast members walked off the set last week in protest of the film's treatment of Native American -- and specifically Apache -- culture. "I never saw the script at all when I first went and then I saw the wardrobe of the actors," Klinekole told Indian Country Today. "The first day, I was the only one dressed Apache. My agent told me these would be Apache scenes. Males were dressed in buckskin, which is not Apache at all. ...The ladies were also in buckskin and were wearing boots that looked like they were purchased from the »

Preggoland Review

29 April 2015 9:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s a sight gag at a pivotal moment in Preggoland involving a baby shower, a dog, operatic music and Jello that immediately registers as one of the more inspired comedic set-ups in recent memory. It is also one of the very few gags that transcends the film’s sitcom trappings while also finessing the outrageous and the darkly funny, two tones that Jacob Tierney’s film aims for yet routinely misses. A few months from now, when looking back at Preggoland – not to be confused with Prego, another film coming out in limited release this week – it will be the first (and likely only) scene that comes to mind.

The Canadian comedy, shot against the cloudy backdrop of suburban Vancouver, tells the story of Ruth Huxley, played by Sonja Bennett (also the film’s screenwriter). Ruth has a low-paying job as a grocery store clerk but no boyfriend, something »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 1989

28 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From a crazy early Nic Cage role to a lesser-known film starring Robert De Niro, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from 1989...

Ah, 1989. The year the Berlin Wall came down and Yugoslavia won the Eurovision Song Contest. It was also a big year for film, with Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade topping the box office and Batman dominating the summer with its inescapable marketing blitz.

Outside the top 10 highest-grossing list, which included Back To The Future II, Dead Poets Society and Honey I Shrunk The Kids, 1989 also included a plethora of less commonly-appreciated films. Some were big in their native countries but only received a limited release in the Us and UK. Others were poorly received but have since been reassessed as cult items.

From comedies to thrillers, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from the end of the 80s...

Exclusive: Clip From 'Preggoland' Reveals A Big Lie

28 April 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Whether you're getting married or in a couple with a pregnant spouse, everyone wants to know "the story." For the latter, it's "was it planned?" "do you want a boy or girl?" and "when's the baby due?" If you're single, maybe it would be "who's the father?" These are the kinds of questions Ruth faces in "Preggoland," except for one little problem: she's not pregnant. Starring Sonja Bennett, James Caan and Danny Trejo, the latest from director Jacob Tierney ("The Trotsky," "Good Neighbors") follows Ruth, who is exiled from her group of friends following a drunken display at a baby shower. But when word starts going around that she's pregnant, she finds herself welcomed back into the fold and she soon finds she can't give up the lie. In this exclusive clip, you can see how the news begins to spiral out of her control. "Preggoland" arrives in limited release »

Outrage Watch: Here's video of Native American 'Ridiculous Six' actors arguing with producers

27 April 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last week, Adam Sandler's original Netflix movie "The Ridiculous Six" made news when around a dozen Native American actors and the film's Native cultural advisor walked off the set in protest over jokes they deemed offensive, in addition to what they called gross misrepresentations of Apache culture. Now, video taken by Goldie Tom, one of the actors who took umbrage with the project, has been released that shows the group arguing with producers over the script. "You're trying to tell us what's disrespectful to us?" one of the actors rails. In another choice soundbite, an off-camera crew member tells the group: "I understand completely. But we're not going to change Beaver Breath." "Beaver Breath" (or "Beaver's Breath"), for the record, is the name of a woman Native American character in the film, one of several offenses highlighted by the group. Other complaints lobbed by the actors included inconsistencies regarding »

Vanilla Ice responds to Adam Sandler's Native American controversy on Ridiculous Six

26 April 2015 7:23 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Vanilla Ice has come to the defence of Adam Sandler upcoming Netflix comedy The Ridiculous Six over a recent backlash.

Several Native Americans working on the film walked off set last week, after condemning the film for being "totally disrespectful" towards their culture.

Nine people left after taking offence over Native American women being called 'Beaver's Breath' and 'No Bra', as well as a scene with a Native American squatting to urinate while smoking a peace pipe.

But Ice, who claims to be part-Choctaw, told TMZ that the he can see the argument from both sides, due to his roots.

"It's comedy, I don't think anybody had any ill feelings or intent or anything. This movie isn't Dancing with Wolves... it's comedy," he explained.

Ice will play Mark Twain in The Ridiculous Six. That, alone, would seem to suggest that it's a spoof film.
