‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Book Donations Banned by Thrift Store

24 March 2016 6:27 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

They say all charity is good charity, except when it comes to “Fifty Shades of Grey,” it seems. A U.K. thrift store has been bombarded with so many donations of  E.L. James‘ X-rated novels that they are using their safe word: “Enough!” The Oxfam shop in Swansea, South Wales, has banned donations of the books that were turned into an equally as raunchy film starring Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele and Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey, U.K. newspaper The Mirror reported.

Fifty Shades Of Black review

14 March 2016 7:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

It only took a year: here's the spoof take on 50 Shades Of Grey. Chortle.

When Scary Movie came out back in 2000, some remarked that the sleeper hit horror parody was spoofing a satire by drawing inspiration and iconography from Scream, which Wes Craven intended as a trope-riddled satire of the genre. Nevertheless, four sequels and a slew of other parody movies (mostly by 'two of the six writers', Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg) followed and have served to run the art of cinematic parody into the ground over the last 15 years.

Fifty Shades Of Black hasn't been anywhere near as big a hit for co-writer and star Marlon Wayans as Scary Movie was, although it's arguably in a similar situation as that first breakout hit. Many of us (this reviewer included) felt that last year's E.L. James adaptation Fifty Shades Of Grey was already hilarious by accident, »

Fifty Shades Of Black review: “An offensive, disgusting mess of a movie”

11 March 2016 2:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Fifty Shades Of Black review: There’s not a lot to like about this new comedy spoof from Marlon Wayans and co.

Fifty Shades Of Black review by Paul Heath. I honestly don’t know where to begin with Fifty Shades Of Black, the latest ‘comedy’ that spoofs last year’s Fifty Shades Of Grey movie, and many others. Actually, I will start here; there’s a scene near the end of the film where Marlon Wayans picks up a hardback copy of E.L. James’ source material and then immediately ridicules it for its poor dialogue and corny content. I can’t quite tell if he’s also taking a sly, fourth-wall-breaking dig at his own movie, or not. We’ll give him the benefit of the doubt, but we won’t forgive him for the rest of this ridiculous, offensive, putrid, dire and most importantly, completely unfunny effort that »

Exclusive interview: Marlon Wayans for ‘Fifty Shades Of Black’

10 March 2016 8:27 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In cinemas from this Friday is the new comedy from Marlon Wayans, Fifty Shades Of Black. Wayans is best known for his previous parodies that include the likes of Scary Movie and its sequel Scary Movie 2, and A Haunted House. The actor, producer and writer has also appeared alongside his brother Shawn in the hugely successful White Chicks, and Little Man.

In Fifty Shades Of Black, Wayans parodies last year’s successful adaptation of the E.L. James novel Fifty Shades Of Grey, as well as other big films of the last twelve months, including Magic Mike. This week, we caught up with Marlon in London where he spoke about filming the movie, his love of English girls, being single, shooting that Mmxxl scene and getting into shape for his new role.

Fifty Shades Of Black hits UK cinemas from Friday 11th March.

Reddit Thread Inspires Short Film That Is Drumming Up Serious Buzz On YouTube

3 March 2016 8:08 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

A Reddit thread prompting visitors to write a short story about serial killers has inspired the creation of a short film that is drumming up some serious buzz on YouTube.

The story was written by Redditor JeniusGuy on the WritingPrompts subreddit -- on which users can submit “prompts” for works of fiction or poetry to which other users compose responses. JeniusGuy’s piece was written in response to a prompt by user _MistressRed_, which read, “A serial killer who kills hitchhikers picks up a serial killer who kills the people who pick him up.”

JeniusGuy's roughly 800-word dark comedy of sorts recounts a run-in by driver Jim and hitchhiker Jean who, after discovering that they are both serial killers, ultimately opt to let one another survive.

And now, in a trajectory that echoes the means by which self-published authors like E.L. James and Anna Todd have seen their works turned into bestselling books and, »

Let's look at the winners of what really matters: the Razzies!  As is tradition, the Razzie winners were announced the night before the Oscar ceremony. No big surprises here: Fifty Shades of Grey took home most of the "prizes" though Fantastic Four took home a few big ones as well. Both movies tied for Worst Picture. And while Eddie Redmayne may have lost out on the Oscar to DiCaprio, he did get a Razzie for Worst Supporting Actor for Jupiter Ascending. Congratulations, Eddie!

Razzie Awards 2016 'Winners': Sylvester Stallone Finds Redemption

29 February 2016 6:31 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Don't worry, Sylvester Stallone. You may not have won an Oscar, but you did win the 2016 Razzie Redeemer Award. So ... congrats?

It's an annual tradition for Hollywood to celebrate its best and worst efforts in the same weekend. Before the Oscars were awarded on Sunday, the Razzies were announced Saturday night. "Fifty Shades of Grey" was tied for the most nominations this year, so it's no surprise to see it picked up five Razzie wins, including Worst Actress for Dakota Johnson, Worst Actor for Jamie Dornan, Worst On-Screen Duo, Worst Screenplay, and a tie for the dubious honor of Worst Picture.

That tie came with "Fantastic Four," which also landed wins for Worst Remake/Rip-Off/Sequel and Worst Director for Josh Trank. Meanwhile, last year's Best Actor winner, Eddie Redmayne, earned his own Worst Supporting Actor Razzie for "Jupiter Ascending." In happier news, the Razzies have a new tradition of honoring someone who redeemed him-or-herself, »

The Oscars don’t matter and we all need to stop caring

Luke Owen on last night’s Oscars…

If Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, then Awards Season is the most loathsome as a film fan. It’s the time of year that a group of out-of-touch Hollywood professionals all gather round to lay their hand down on what they think was the best film released in the last four months, and industry experts and film lovers parade around social media giving their predictions on who and what they think will walk away with the tiny gold statue as if it actually mattered. This shameful circle jerk charade happens year after year and with each passing 365 days Awards Season becomes more of a farce.

The Oscars are the worst for it, but that’s only because the other two major American awards ceremonies have already been forgotten about. The Golden Globes showed themselves to be worthless when it »
