Film Review: ‘Monster Trucks’ May Be One of the Weirdest Films Ever

18 January 2017 4:05 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – A four year old walks into a room with a great idea for a movie, and unfortunately his father is president of a “motion picture group.” Millions of dollars and four years later, this child’s idea became “Monster Trucks,” one of the strangest movies ever conceived.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

The father was Adam Goodman, who in 2013 put the green light on the picture (the story may be a bit exaggerated, there are other reports that Goodman merely observed his son playing with trucks, and came up with the concept himself). Filming began and was wrapped in 2014, and then the slow painful slog of the movie Paramount Studios didn’t want to release started its painful journey to the 2017 debut in January (Friday the 13th, appropriately enough). The result is a overworked and strained effort to deliver the descriptive, “trucks are powered by actual monsters.” Aimed toward the kids, but also »

Monster Trucks – Review

12 January 2017 9:57 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Even though its several months till the temps rise to signal the start of blockbuster kid-friendly entertainment time, the multiplex chefs are ready to whip up something that will satisfy the appetites of the pre-teen crowds. Here’s a tasty mash-up, much in the vein of other blended concoctions. Several years ago some far-sighted studio marketing exec thought, “Hey, kids love their doggies and they love sports, so how about a pooch that plays basketball?”. Air Bud proved to be quite the franchise, so this new flick should be another “slam dunk”. The tots love their weird creatures (as long as they’re not too scary) and they adore those big-wheeled behemoths that flattened everything in their path. Have some animation veterans sprinkle a bit of magic and slapstick, and you’ve got a candy coated respite from those somber award season contenders. Clear the way for the Monster Trucks. »

‘Pulp Fiction’: Watch a Food Blogger Show You How to Make the Perfect Big Kahuna Burger

4 January 2017 3:48 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Anyone who has watched more than one of Quentin Tarantino’s films knows about the Big Kahuna Burger. But, for those who don’t happen to be fans of the filmmaker or simply have not paid enough attention, this is a fictional chain of Hawaiian-themed fast food restaurants that have appeared in at least four of Tarantino’s movies: “Death Proof,” “Four Rooms,” “Pulp Fiction” and “Reservoir Dogs.”

Tarantino also included this fictional burger joint in the script of his 1996’s Robert Rodriguez–directed film “From Dusk Till Dawn”.

It is the delicious-looking burger that Samuel L. Jackson’s character, Jules Winnfield, takes away from a terrified guy named Brett (Frank Whaley) in a scene from 1994’s iconic “Pulp Fiction.” “Hamburgers, the cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast,” says Jackson’s character before asking »
