10 July 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

15 American Pie quotes that got us through high school

10 July 2014 3:26 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Start to feel very old, because American Pie celebrates its 15th anniversary this week. The '90s comedy classic was an instant box office hit and helped launch the careers of its leading cast.

Sequels followed, but none of them quite managed to recapture the magic of that glorious first time. There was always something vaguely comforting about American Pie - no matter how bad we had it in school, it was never quite as bad as the experiences of Jim, Oz, Finch and the gang.

To mark American Pie's birthday, Digital Spy has collected 15 of our favourite quotes from the 1999 movie below.

Jim (Jason Biggs)

1. "You realise we're all going to go to college as virgins. They probably have special dorms for people like us."

2. "Guys, uh, what exactly does third base feel like?"

3. "I would like to make an announcement - there is a gorgeous woman masturbating on my bed. »

21 shocking straight-to-video sequels: How many have you seen?

5 July 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

What's the only thing worse than a sequel? The only prospect worse than paying £10 at your local cinema to have your favourite movie ruined, forever. The answer has three words. Straight-to-video.

In the '90s, home release sequels became fairly common. You'd greet them with surprise at your local Blockbusters and then want to pull your eyeballs out when you took them home and watched them. They're probably called straight-to-dvd or straight-to-Blu-ray now, but they still exist.

Here are 21 absolute stinking sequels - the vast majority of which weren't even considered good enough for the cinema. How many of them have you watched?

1. American Pie Presents: Band Camp

2. American Pie Presents: Beta House

Maybe it's the Eugene Levy factor - just why did he keep starring in all the sequels?! - but we have weird sentimentality for the American Pie home release collection. We know that they're not technically canon, »

A Ten-Year Anniversary (2004-2014): Top 10 Cinematic Duds from Yesterday

11 June 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Has it actually been ten years already since we have been engaged in the realm of films dating back to 2004? A decade is certainly a long period of time to build our appreciation for cinema up until this critical point in 2014. In looking back at 2004, one can recall fondly some of the more desirable releases to come out at that time. For instance, the superb Million Dollar Baby was the Academy Award-winning film for 2004. Even the comedies that were released that year gave movie audiences cause to rejoice with such ditties as the sleeper indie hit Napoleon Dynamite and well as mainstream laughers in Mean Girls and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy.

Unfortunately for every gem there is a dud and then some. And 2004 had its share to say the least. So how about getting nostalgic and recalling some of the notable misses that were heaped on misled moviegoers »

Angus MacLane Co-Directing Finding Dory With Andrew Stanton

11 June 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Cars 2 fizzled and Monsters University didn’t really offer much to Monsters Inc. fans, Pixar has proven with Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3 that it understands how to make great sequels. So we’re holding out hope for Finding Dory, a sequel to Oscar winner Finding Nemo, especially because the first film’s director Andrew Stanton is back on board. Unfortunately, we won’t get to see it until 2016 because of The Good Dinosaur getting delayed and moved to Dory‘s spot, but at least we’ve got some interesting news about the film to tide us over.

While tweeting about an amusing Lego creation, Stanton let slip that Pixar veteran Angus MacLane is co-directing Finding Dory with him:

From my co-director’s clever Lego “couch” series: “@AngusMacLane: Tony Stark having a drink on a couch, in Lego. http://t.co/uw6oyALe36”

The Nostalgia Files: ‘Stay Tuned’ (1992)

4 June 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Stay Tuned

Written by Tom. S. Parker, Jim Jennewain, and Richard Siegel

Directed by Peter Hyams

USA, 1992

In 2003 the world lost a true comedic treasure; a man so funny that he was dubbed “The greatest physical comedian on the planet” by actor Don Knotts. Knotts was referring to the late, great Mr. John Ritter. With a career spanning nearly four decades in film, TV, and the stage, Ritter was an extremely talented and likable actor. He gave the world many memorable performances, most notably in the delightfully zany sitcom Three’s Company and in the ridiculously warped Problem Child films. With so many roles on his resume, Ritter became a household name for audiences worldwide. He starred in many films over the years, some notable, some not so notable. One picture that slipped through the cracks was 1992’s fantasy/comedy Stay Tuned, a wacky adventure which saw Ritter as an unlikely hero. »

American Pie: The Wedding

27 May 2014 2:33 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

After an adolescence memorable for sticky fillings and flute solos, Jim (Jason Biggs) and Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) are finally getting married. But with Stifler (Seann William Scott), Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) and Jim's dad (Eugene Levy) on the guest list, it can't fail to be a hapless occasion. The third in the taste-pushing franchise proves yet again that when it comes to cringe-making comedy, we have a trousers-down winner. »

If you were a kid in a record store in the early 1980’s, you saw this poster. Our record store was poorly lit with carpet crawling up the walls where you could thumb through albums with provocative covers while your parents ran their errands. Ahh, innocence lost. I couldn’t recall an animated film like this before or since, but the most significant thing that I can remember about “Heavy Metal” is that it taught me that animation can have adult and horrific elements. This movie scared me a little. »

'The West Wing' oral history: 9 things you didn't know or forgot

13 May 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Since Frank Underwood became president on Netflix’s House of Cards, I’ve had this geek fantasy of him debating Josiah Bartlet, Martin Sheen’s idealistic and professorial president from The West Wing. Bartlet’s Washington, D.C., was the proverbial shining city on a hill, a place where intelligent, well-intentioned people gravitated to do the peoples’ business. Underwood’s capital is the nasty underbelly of a trough coated by man’s craven pursuit of power for power’s sake. It’s practically Kennedy’s Camelot versus Nixononian realpolitik. To paraphrase Anthony HopkinsNixon in Oliver Stone’s 1995 movie, “When look at The West Wing, »

The fun begins when Levy's hapless dope is mistaken for an arms dealer, leaving Jackson's by-the-book cop to keep him in one piece while tracking down the real bad guys. Former Bros-popper Luke Goss takes a villainous bow as the criminal kingpin. »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2011

12 March 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 13 Mar 2014 - 05:44

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2011, and a great year for lesser-seen gems...

Even a cursory glance at the top 10 grossing films of 2011 reveals something strange: nine of the entries are sequels. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 brought the fantasy franchise to a close with a staggering $1.3bn haul. Transformers: Dark Of The Moon wasn't too far behind with just over $1.1bn. On Stranger Tides continued the Pirates Of The Caribbean series' wave of success, despite mixed reviews.

Elsewhere in the top 10, you'll find another Twilight, a fourth Mission: Impossible, a second Kung Fu Panda, a fifth Fast, another Hangover, and further Cars. Standing alone on the list is The Smurfs, the adaptation of Peyo's Belgian comic strip. In fact, 2011 saw the release of no fewer than 28 sequels - the most we've yet seen in any given year. »

Special Features - In Memory of John Candy

4 March 2014 12:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe remembers John Candy....

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the passing of comedic legend, John Candy. One of Canada’s most successful film and TV exports, Candy rose through the TV comedy circuit in Canada alongside contemporaries like Rick Moranis, Harold Ramis (sadly no longer with us now), Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy. Throughout his film career, Candy would continue working on and off with many of the stars he rose with.

Candy has remained a popular figure, both among the audiences who grew up in the 80’s on a staple diet of his comedy films, and from new audiences who rediscover such greats as Planes, Trains and Automobiles. What really made Candy stand out, more than just his physical size and presence, was the warmth and likeability the man projected in virtually every character he played. Often playing the bumbling fool with his heart in the right place, »
