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 »

'10 Cloverfield Lane' Looks Strong, 'Zootopia' Set for Second Weekend at #1

10 March 2016 12:59 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

10 Cloverfield Lane is the latest mystery box thriller from J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot and it's looking to top a list of four new wide releases this weekend. Additional new releases include Sacha Baron Cohen's comedy The Brothers Grimsby, the new faith-based feature The Young Messiah and the romantic-comedy The Perfect Match. All four will be competing with some strong holdovers, most notably Disney's Zootopia, which will be holding on to the top spot for a second week in a row, and Deadpool, which could top $10 million in its fifth weekend in release. Zootopia enters its second weekend in release after breaking the The Lorax's March opening weekend record for an animated film. As such, it seems appropriate to use The Lorax's 44.7% second weekend drop as a basis for comparison this weekend. On a daily basis Zootopia has performed well when compared to The Lorax, suggesting the smart money »

Berlin: Market Forces Reshape Indie Biz — Again

9 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The 2016 European Film Market isn’t without star power. Richard Gere toplines the Protagonist Pictures-sold psychological drama “The Dinner,” from Oren Moverman; Adam Driver (Rylo Ken to “Star Wars” fans) stars in Jim Jarmusch comedy “Paterson” from K5 Intl.; James McAvoy and Alicia Vikander grace Wim Wender’s “Submergence,” from Embankment.

But as indie film execs are getting ready for the market, which runs concurrently with the Berlin Intl. Film Festival from Feb. 11 to 21, nobody expects to see a bonanza of English-language star-laden vehicles for sale.

“There likely won’t be a crop of bigger new movies,” says Im Global’s Stuart Ford. “There will be a few. But I don’t think we’ll see a sudden boom.”

Blame the market forces within the international indie biz. In 2012, multiple sales companies launched as institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals moved into independent film finance — and needed sales agents to match equity with pre-sales. »

'Kung Fu Panda 3' Takes the Weekend Box Office with $41M

31 January 2016 11:11 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While January isn't typically a big month for box office blockbusters, there can be the occasional movie that opens big. Two weeks ago, Ride Along 2 breathed some life into the new year with a respectable $35.2 million opening frame, but last weekend, it dropped a whopping 64.7% and slipped from first to third place, with the holdover The Revenant taking the top spot in its fifth week in theaters. This weekend is shaping up to be the biggest frame of the new year so far, with three heavily-promoted new releases, Kung Fu Panda 3, Fifty Shades of Black and The Finest Hours. Box Office Mojo is reporting that Kung Fu Panda 3 took the top spot at the box office with $41 million.

Kung Fu Panda 3 is expected to easily take the top spot with a projected $48 million, which isn't terribly surprising given this franchise's pedigree of critical acclaim and box office success. »

Movie Review – Fifty Shades of Black (2016)

31 January 2016 9:56 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fifty Shades of Black, 2016.

Directed by Michael Tiddes.

Starring Marlon Wayans, Kali Hawk, Affion Crockett, Jane Seymour, Florence Henderson, Jenny Zigrino, Fred Willard, and Mike Epps.

Synopsis:

An inexperienced college student meets a wealthy businessman whose sexual practices put a strain on their relationship.

Normally, whenever I’m about to watch a modern-day Marlon Wayans comedy (I use that term loosely as to not insult actual comedies) I am mentally crying inside, trying to prepare myself for the next 90 minutes that will inexplicably feel as long as some epic Christopher Nolan movie. This time though, I had some hope coming in. After all, this time around it is Fifty Shades of Grey being parodied and roasted; a movie so unintentionally hilarious and plagued with both despicable and idiotic characters, it feels as if the spoof material would write itself.

The answer to that inquiry is both yes and no, as »

Fifty Shades Of Black Review

30 January 2016 8:22 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It astounds me that so many critics can vehemently spit venom at Kevin Smith, proclaiming he only makes movies for himself, yet that same scrutiny seems to avoid a borderline selfish filmmaker like Marlon Wayans. Given the right script and role, Wayans is a funny, talented performer. That I won’t argue. Yet these flavor-of-the-week spoofs he constantly churns out sport the same, unfunny, low-brow sense of humor every single time. These are jokes that make Wayans and his writing buddy Rick Alvarez laugh like pre-pubescent boys – or maybe the jokes were written by pre-pubescent boys, and they just make Wayans and Alvarez laugh. Either way, Fifty Shades Of Black is fifty despicable shades too many. Shocker, right?

Wayans stars as Christian Black, a wealthy “bidness” man who made his money like any other successful entrepreneur – by learning the coke trade and sucking a few dicks! (Yup, strap in.) It »

Film Review: ‘Fifty Shades of Black’

28 January 2016 11:16 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At a minimum, a parody should be funnier than the film it’s sending up, but “Fifty Shades of Black,” a quick-and-dirty riff on last year’s S&M romance “Fifty Shades of Grey,” falls a laugh or two short of even that low standard. After wringing every last joke out of the “Paranormal Activity” movies with “A Haunted House” and its sequel, co-writer/star Marlon Wayans, co-writer Rick Alvarez and director Michael Tiddes handcuff themselves to the latest pop-culture phenomenon, but don’t have the requisite discipline for the material. It wouldn’t take much to tip the brittle kink of E.L. James’ fantasy into the realm of comedy — the movie itself did it occasionally, if not always intentionally — but the vulgar bigness of Wayans’ style blows right past deadpan. Nevertheless, though this dire outing won’t win Wayans any new fans, there’s still an audience eager to »

Marlon Wayans, Kali Hawk & 'Fifty Shades of Black' Director Talk Marlon's Magic Mike Scene at Hollywood Premiere

28 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

In Fifty Shades Of Black, Marlon Wayans doesn't only parody the risqué novel turned movie, but Magic Mike also gets the spoof treatment with Marlon Wayans stripping down to a g-string. Wayans co-star Kali Hawk and director Michael Tiddes (A Haunted House) reveal the star wasn't thrilled to take it all off, but Wayans is telling us a different story. Watch the hilarious interview where Wayans offers to show us his "johnson" to prove he's not a "prude."

‘Fifty Shades of Black’s’ Marlon Wayans on Parody Films: ‘There’s a Science to It’

27 January 2016 3:56 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To veteran comedian and parody filmmaker Marlon Wayans — who stars in Open Road’s “Fifty Shades of Black” — the ingredients of a successful parody are a great story, characters with intentions, funny dynamics and infusions of pop culture.

“It has to be organic. There’s a science to it, but you just have to be smart about your approach,” Wayans told Variety on Tuesday at the Los Angeles premiere of “Fifty Shades of Black,” a parody film he also co-wrote and produced.

The film, a spoof on “Fifty Shades of Grey,” follows the developing relationship of shy, inexperienced college student Hannah  (Kali Hawk) and shady businessman Christian Black (Wayans).

Adding to the discussion of developing well-received parodies, “Fifty Shades of Black” co-writer and producer Rick Alvarez said that it’s important that audiences are ready to find the humor in whatever subject is being spoofed.
