Top Ten Tuesday – Top 10 Guilty Pleasure Movies

10 June 2014 6:12 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I have a curious habit, maybe you have it too, if you are a real movie geek, film fan, cinema addict, what have you.

A certain number of movies that I have seen and loved with all my heart were losers at the box office or were mercilessly slammed by critics, usually both. This doesn’t happen all the time, mind you. I know a bad movie when I see one. But several times I have seen a movie on opening day and loved it so much I was sure it would be a big hit and be loved by critics and film goers, nope, not all the time.

Here then is my own personal and highly eccentric top ten list, with some honorable mentions, of movies that lost out, yet I love them still, many of them desperately, hysterically, madly do I love these films, well anyway… let me tell you about it. »

'John Carter' Director Reveals Cancelled Plans for Two Sequels

7 June 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney had high hopes for the sci-fi adventure John Carter. Based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic A Princess of Mars, the studio couldn't decide on a title, originally calling it John Carter of Mars before it became something much more generic. The movie opened on March 8, earning a decent enough $30 million over the weekend. But then it went onto only generate $73 million domestically against a $250 million budget, becoming one of the biggest bombs in the studio's history. Worldwide, it would eventually take in $284.1 million, but its poor showing in the states spelled doom for the franchise.

Some blamed the title and the marketing. Some blamed director Andrew Stanton, making his first live-action movie after finding success at Pixar with Finding Nemo and Wall-e. Many fans don't blame the movie itself, a wild and rollicking old fashion space opera that has gained a strong following since it took a nosedive at the box office. »

Andrew Stanton's John Carter Had Planned Sequels, Here Are The Logos And Titles

7 June 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Many people did not enjoy Andrew Stanton's (Finding Nemo, Wall-e) motion picture adaptation of John Carter, the Warlord of Mars. I was one of the few who did enjoy it, and would be open to a sequel. Stanton has released the title cards for some originally planned sequels, which you can see below! Could have been cool. Had big plans... pic.twitter.com/xtL0KuLyAf — andrew stanton (@andrewstanton) June 7, 2014 ...That would have led to even bigger plans. pic.twitter.com/GCXet6iZ3g — andrew stanton (@andrewstanton) June 7, 2014 John Carter was directed by Andrew Stanton and starred Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins and Willem Dafoe, Mark Strong, Bryan Cranston, James Purefoy, Dominic West, Thomas Haden Church and Ciarán Hinds. »

Taylor Kitsch Says John Carter Sequel Script Was Awesome

29 May 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I really enjoyed director Andrew Stanton's John Carter. It was a great movie that just got a lot of bad press and had a terrible marketing campaign. This should have been a huge franchise for Disney, and there should have been multiple sequels, but it's never going to happen at the point. I seriously doubt that anyone will attempt to make another movie based on The Princess of Mars book series, and that's really kind of sad.

During a recent interview with Variety the film's star, Taylor Kitsch, talked about the movie. When asked if the bad press was hard for him, he said,

"I mean, look man, it wasn’t an uplifting experience. My biggest regret would have been if I didn’t do enough personally. If I didn’t give it everything I had. If I hadn’t prepped enough. I don’t have that regret, so »

John Carter Sequel Would Have Been Awesome, Says Taylor Kitsch

28 May 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For awhile, the spectacular flop that was John Carter seemed the yardstick by which all other flops would be measured. A huge, multi-million dollar film chock full of CGI that was intended to spawn at least one sequel, if not a full franchise, its collapse at the box office was epic and thorough, prompting extensive examination of just what went wrong. In the midst of the furor was star Taylor Kitsch, whose attempts to make a name for himself in Hollywood have been met with failed film after failed film.

But Kitsch is still going strong, despite John Carter, Battleship, and Savages. He’s currently appearing in HBO drama The Normal Heart, and returns to his native Canada in miniseries The Grand Seduction. But there’s still a place in his heart for John Carter, and what might have been, as he tells Variety. Here’s what he said about »

Taylor Kitsch on ‘The Normal Heart’ and Wanting to Direct

23 May 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Taylor Kitsch stars in the indie film “The Grand Seduction” (which opens May 30) and in HBO’s “The Normal Heart,” based on the play by Larry Kramer. He spoke to Ramin Setoodeh about his new career direction.

I watched a double feature of your movies last night.

Oh man! All you can Kitsch.

The Grand Seduction” is about a doctor who moves to a small village. Had you seen the foreign film that it’s based on?

No, I had never heard of it or knew it existed. My manager hit me up — she’s like, “I couldn’t put this down.” I read it, laughed out loud 15 to 20 times. We shot in Newfoundland in a harbor town of 150 people. I’m always looking for great little independents.

How did you find the character?

It was harder than I imagined, but maybe that doesn’t mean it was hard. It »

14 May 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The film stars Patrick Wilson, Ian McShane, John Leguizamo, Lynn Collins, Jand im Belushi.

A gritty and modern thriller, "The Man on Carrion Road" collides head on with the pathos and hard realities that inhabit life along the border; it's a story that explores the ambitions, difficulties and consequences that turn men into monsters and monsters into reality. »
