The appeal of bad movies has always been a little hard to explain, but it could probably best be compared to the innate hilarity of something like America’s Funniest Home Videos (basically now transformed into Youtube, freeing us from the groove-killing of the hosts). No matter how high our brain function as homo sapiens ever gets, we will always be reduced to our most primal, adolescent form at the sight of some one falling off a ladder, being hit in the face by a baseball bat, or getting attacked by a dog (preferably if the person is dignified or has no idea that it’s coming); similarly, it’s hilarious to see a director or writer completely humiliated upon the release of a truly awful film, as they have failed on a scale that is far larger and more expensive as well as more personal. But no matter how »

Jail Bait, 1954
Directed by Edward D. Wood, Jr.
After his proposed Bela Lugosi supernatural TV series Dr. Acula failed to get off the ground, schlock filmmaker Ed Wood turned his hand to film noir for his second feature Jail Bait, which was produced under the title The Hidden Face. Inspired by the 1935 crime drama False Faces (a.k.a. Let 'em Have It), the film revolves around a gangster who plans to undergo drastic facial plastic surgery in order to evade the police. To do so he kidnaps the son of Dr. Gregor, played by English actor and silent era star Herbert Rawlinson, who died the day after filming was completed (the part was originally written for Lugosi, »

This is a list dedicated to entertainers who tried to give us the best of both worlds, meaning acting And singing – and failed. Sometimes, devastatingly so.
It is not meant to indicate any pessimism for Miley Cyrus or her new film The Last Song, as she is just beginning to start her venture into “real” acting (and The Hannah Montana Movie had worse acting, and not from her, anyway.)
Read Jeff Bayer’s Tsr of ‘The Last Song’
Of course, the legacy of the singer turned actor has had some great moments, like Ice Cube in Boyz N the Hood and Mandy Moore in Saved! Mariah Carey even saved herself from this list with her performance in Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire.
This list features moments that you may have missed from your favorite entertainers, »

This coming weekend we all get to go with Alice down the rabbit hole again into the fantastic world of Wonderland. Johnny Depp again teams up with director Tim Burton to bring us this visually stunning and imagination filled motion picture to give us the continuing story of Alice's adventures in the strange world filled is amazing characters.
Joining Depp on the screen for "Wonderland" are Mia Wasikowska (most recently seen in "Amelia") as Alice, Helena Bonham Carter as The Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as The White Queen, Cristin Glover as the Knave of Hearts, Alan Rickman as the Blue Caterpillar and Michael Sheen as the White Rabbit.
In "Alice In Wonderland", 19-year-old Alice returns to the magical world from her childhood adventure, where she reunites with her old friends and learns of her true destiny: to end the Red Queen's reign of terror.
But did you know that "Alice In Wonderland »
How come nobody ever really wants to remake bad movies? Keeping the low-budget vibe of Edward D. Wood Jr. intact, comes this minimalist CGI remaking of Wood’s transvestite classic, Glen Or Glenda. As of this writing, only the first two scenes have been remade, which are both embedded above. (Video should just play through continuously.) Only true Wood fans may find this to be a hoot — which it is! — but hopefully others can see the charm, too.
In the first scene, Bela Lugosi is recast here as a bald, mustachioed man standing fully clothed in a steam room. The opening monologue to the film is one of the craziest, non-sequitur ridden, misguided monologues in film history, the result of Wood convincing Lugosi to be in the film under less than straightforward pretenses. Here, though, the monologue is delivered in such a flat tone it’s almost crazier sounding than when Lugosi delivers it, »
