“I’ll shove that bat up your ass and turn you into a Popsicle”

The Warriors screens this Friday and Saturday nights (June 6th and 7th) at midnight at the Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at the Tivoli’  Midnight series.

Walter Hill stylized 1979 modern urban-fantasy adventure The Warriors has overcome the test of time and is now a cult classic – and not without a good reason.

Junkfood Cinema: The RetrosBECKtive

25 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In this installment of Junkfood Cinema, Cargill and I discuss one of our favorite under-appreciated actors: Michael Beck. For a very brief period of time, Beck was a rising star in Hollywood. His breakout performance in The Warriors placed him firmly on the map, only to see his career stall a mere three years later thanks to the notorious bomb that was Xanadu. Still, during his all-too-short heyday, Beck appeared in some fantastic cult fare including Hal Needham’s Megaforce and the often heralded (at least on this show) Battletruck. We hope you enjoy this retrosBECKtive. You should follow Brian (@Briguysalisbury), Cargill (@Massawyrm), and the show (@Junkfoodcinema).

In Honor Of James Franco’s “The Room” Movie, Let’s Recast Other Bad Movies!

11 February 2014 2:24 PM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

This news is tearing me apart! Apparently James Franco is set to produce a movie based on Greg Sestero‘s book The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside the Room, a memoir about Sestero’s acting gig in the 2003 cult classic — and touted “worst movie of all time” — The Room. Franco will star in the project too, presumably as The Room‘s director and star Tommy Wiseau, and he’ll be camping it up alongside Seth Rogen and his brother Dave Franco, who will probably play Sestero. Sigh, Dave Franco. Nudity is always a good option for him!

For the hell of it, let’s recast other notoriously bad movies for potential biopics.

Julianne Moore as Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford

Chloe Grace Moretz as Diana Scarwid as Christina Crawford

Now this! This is the remake that Julianne Moore and Chloe Grace Moretz were made for. While the »
