"Final Destination" Turns 15 -- Where Is The Cast Now?!

17 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's the film franchise that made us fear everything from shower strangulation to parallel bars. Yep, we’re talking about "Final Destination." The first installment came out 15 years ago, starring Devon Sawa as a high school student who has a vision that he and his friends (including Ali Larter, Kerr Smith, Seann William Scott) will die in a horrific plane crash. When he prevents the accident, Death itself tries to set things right by killing those who momentarily escaped its clutches. While the 2000 hit movie had mixed reviews from critics, it was a big hit with fans. The Rube Goldberg-inspired film received a Saturn Award for Best Horror Film and earned Sawa an accolade for Best Performance by a Younger Actor.  Its popularity spawned four sequels, a novel series and a one-shot comic book called "Final Destination: Sacrifice."   The fifth film, which came out in 2011, brought everything full-circle ... ending »

Boob on the Tube: Top Ten Worst Movie Adaptations of TV Shows

26 February 2015 11:42 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Some of the greatest (or at least heavily favored) American television shows got the big screen treatment when they were selected to have their small screen following turn into a cinematic experience. Unfortunately, for every beloved nostalgic television show that translated successfully in movie theaters (The Brady Bunch MovieStar Trek, Batman, etc.) there are boob tube stinkers that overtake the good crop. Sure, there are middle-of-the-road movie adaptations of television programs that have a mixed bag reception (1997’s Leave It To Beaver, 1987’s Dragnet, 2012’s Dark Shadows, etc.). Nevertheless, it is always the unflattering fare that receive the bulk of the attention (do you register, 1999’s The Wild, Wild West ?).

In Boob on the Tube: Top Ten Worst Movie Adaptations of TV Shows we will take a look at the top ten televised offenders that dared to venture into cinema’s stratosphere only to end up floating down shamefully »

10 sequels that ignored previous films

26 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In the wake of the Alien 5 news, here are 10 franchise sequels that also ignored at least one previous film.

We all have moments in our lives we'd prefer to forget, and so too do filmmakers. So what do you do when a movie franchise starts to go off the rails? Simple, just forget that the lesser films in the series never happened.

News recently broke that director Neill Blomkamp's taking this approach to the Alien universe. Recent interviews with both he and returning star Sigourney Weaver have revealed that Blomkamp's forthcoming sequel will not necessarily follow the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, and pick up the story from Aliens instead (although he has since given a brief update on that).

Of course, we'll have to wait and see exactly how all this pans out. But it's by no means the first time in history that a film's »

10 ridiculously silly movie orgasms: Jennifer Aniston, Jason Biggs & more

13 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The hotly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie is finally released in cinemas today (February 13) to coincide with Valentine's Day this weekend, and it's got our minds racing about just one thing....

The most ridiculously silly orgasms in movie history, obviously!

From Jennifer Aniston's otherworldly pleasure to Jason Biggs's doubly embarrassing shortcomings - here are 10 fantastically farcical orgasms on the silver screen below:

1. Jason Biggs in American Pie (1999)

Virginal, apple pie-bonking Jim Levenstein can't believe his luck when his history tutoring with sexy Slovakian exchange student Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth) turns into something more. So excited is Jim, however, that he barely contains himself at her touch, only lasting a few more seconds on second go, until he, er, explodes again.

Sadly Stifler (Seann William Scott) had previously coerced Jim to set up a webcam in his room so they can all watch the frisky teenage pair, but he unwittingly »

‘Knights of Badassdom’ DVD Review

11 February 2015 2:10 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Steve ZahnRyan Kwanten, Peter DinklageDanny Pudi, Summer GlauBrian Posehn | Written by Kevin Dreyfuss, Matt Wall | Directed by Joe Lynch

Larping (or Live Action Role Playing) is subcultural phenomenon that is continuing to gain notoriety. For some it is a way of life, while for others they are not sure what language the word Larping originates from. Larping has had some cinematic spotlight in the past including the documentary Darkon and probably most infamously in the Paul Rudd & Seann William Scott comedy Role Models. However, director Joe Lynch takes his film Knights of Badassdom  in an entirely different  direction.

Knights of Badassdom asks the question of what happens when you take real life pretend fantasy and add true demonic forces. Based on the premise and cast the potential is rich with uniqueness.  This could easily be in the same vein as films like Evil Dead, Cabin in the Woods, »

41 A-List Actors Who Bombed as Hard as Johnny Depp in ‘Mortdecai’

28 January 2015 7:04 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

The 51-year-old film star and his co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn are in fact in very good company.
