King Cobra Review

22 October 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

King Cobra is an erotic, venomous thriller loaded with cheesy porn-actor charm and equally perverse darkness. Only a true story could be this twisted, and only in the world of sleaziness and fame could egos rationalize murder as a way to beat the competition. In fact, writer/director Justin Kelly creates more believable motivations for Joe Kerekes and Harlow Cuadra than their real accounts detail. Kelly’s sinful slice of “twink” exploitation somehow creates a more believable scenario than reality by under-exaggerating where cinema typically exploits. The Viper cars, trademarked names, predatory advances – welcome to the flashy, ferocious underworld of sex, lies and videotapes.

Garrett Clayton stars as Sean Paul Lockhart Aka Brent Corrigan, a young phenom pornstar who becomes an overnight sensation thanks to Cobra Video. He lives with “King Cobra” himself – Stephen (Christian Slater) – who writes and directs twink-centric videos from his suburban abode.  On the other side »

For more than a decade now, comic book mastermind Stan Lee has been cropping up in Marvel movies – a memorable run that encompasses a turn as Hugh Hefner in Jon Favreau’s original Iron Man movie to a music-loving librarian in The Amazing Spider-Man.

Doctor Strange is no different, and thanks to a report by Comic Book, we now have an understanding of exactly when in Scott Derrickson’s mind-bending tentpole that we can expect to clock eyes on the indelible Lee. Then again, spotting Marvel’s good-luck charm is often part of the fun of viewing a superhero film from the studio, so unless you want to have that moment spoiled ahead of time, we’d advise you to remain on this side of the jump.

Herschell Gordon Lewis, the 'Godfather of Gore,' has died

26 September 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Herschell Gordon Lewis, the so-called "Godfather of Gore" who is widely credited with inventing the "splatter" sub-genre, has died. He was 87. During his brief career as a writer, director and producer of low-budget exploitation films, Lewis achieved infamy with titles like Blood Feast, Two Thousand Maniacs! and The Wizard of Gore, the first of which is generally considered the first "splatter" film and was so reviled by critics on release in 1963 that Variety deemed it "an insult even to the most puerile and salacious of audiences." Nonetheless, the film's boundary-pushing nature made it a huge hit with audiences, leading to a new acceptance of onscreen gore and paving the way for more artful filmmakers like Tobe Hooper, Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson. Born June 15, 1929 in Pittsburgh, Lewis earned a master's degree in Journalism at Northwestern University and had a varied early career, working alternately as a college professor, TV commercial director and voiceover artist. »

Gold Derby titles their article "Official" and then claims to have inside intel on "hints" that Silence is actually opening this year despite no poster, trailer, release date, etcetera. This is not what the word "official" means. It will only be official when Paramount makes a statement. I'm hopeful, as the film has been in post forever, but it's definitely not official yet.

Masters of Sex Season 4 Episode 1 Review: Freefall

11 September 2016 10:05 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Bill Masters and Virginia Johnson have a long and complicated relationship. After finally hitting rock bottom, has Bill finally learned to let go?

Even though he appeared to find some clarity in Masters of Sex Season 4 Episode 1, I'm not betting on Bill's revelation lasting too long.

The world is quickly changing around them, but Bill and Virginia always seem to find their way back to one another.

We caught up with the estranged duo several weeks after the events of Masters of Sex Season 3 Episode 12. Bill was trying out an overgrown beard and drinking himself into a stupor, while Virginia rambled on about her husband Dan and slept with a bartender.

It's unclear what happened with Dan and Virginia after they boarded that plane, but he was nowhere to be found. It's possible they never got married or they did get hitched and Dan turned out to not be the man Virginia thought he was. »

Masters of Sex Season 4 Premiere Recap: Was It Good For You, Too?

11 September 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

That was almost good enough to make us forget about the gorilla. Almost. Not only did Sunday’s Season 4 premiere of Masters of Sex reunite Bill and Virginia, at least professionally, it also strongly suggested that the Showtime drama was, following that wobbly third season, once again on solid footing. Was it good for you, too? Let’s review the hour’s salient points, then you can grade the episode and hit the comments with your critique.

The 'Masters of Sex' premiere tried to fix many of its problems. Is it too late?

11 September 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of the Masters of Sex season 4 premiere coming up just as soon as I want to make love to a shoe... Once one of TV's best shows, Masters of Sex pretty much lost me last season — not even for the ridiculous gorilla-fluffing episode, but through its inability to break the pattern of making Bill into a cold, domineering, perpetually wrong jackass, and Virginia the victim who inexplicably (other than to hew somewhat close to the historical record) won't walk away from him. "Freefall" seemed designed as an explicit corrective to that problem, stripping away everything that Bill used to define himself as a man — his wife, his mistress, his practice of medicine, his ability to drive, even his suits and bow ties — until he has to admit to his new AA sponsor (Niecy Nash, who proved on Getting On that she can be a terrific dramatic actress) that he's basically nothing. »

Lowe Blows: 25 Sickest 'Rob Lowe Roast' Burns

6 September 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

He's made friends, enemies, some memorable Eighties movies, loads of Tiger Beat covers, a didn't-see-that-coming comedic comeback and a few notorious sex tapes — and now, Rob Lowe can say that he's truly arrived, because Comedy Central has roasted him. Joining the ranks of Hugh Hefner, Justin Bieber, Flavor Flav and this guy, the former Brat Pack heartthrob willingly stepped up on the dais with a bullseye on his back, as everyone from roastmaster Jeffrey Ross (dressed as Purple Rain-era Prince) to Jewel (?!?) laid into him with the most offensive zingers imaginable. »
