The top 10 Rick Moranis movies

9 November 2010 8:07 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

He’s not acted in a film for a long time, but we still can’t help celebrating the majesty of Mr Rick Moranis. And here, for your deliberation, are his ten finest movies…

Given that he went into retirement from acting back over a decade ago now, for personal reasons, it's perhaps not too surprising that Rick Moranis' back catalogue of movies isn't as bountiful as many of his contemporaries. Yet, Moranis certainly knew how to make a comedy mark (although, as we'll discover, there's more to the man than that). And while the 10 films we're going to talk about here are of mixed quality, the common feature is that Moranis delivers a performance that tends to stand out.

I should note from the outset, incidentally, that we're not going anywhere near the risible movie of The Flintstones here. But that's just common sense for all concerned.

Toronto: cinema’s geekiest location?

18 August 2010 11:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Often disguised as somewhere else, Toronto has been a popular filming location for years, as Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World points out. Here’s Jeff’s tribute to the geekiest location in cinema...

"They film movies in Toronto?" one character says, rather incredulously, in the recent Edgar Wright extravaganza, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. They certainly do.

Toronto is the cinematic equivalent of Cinderella: although it hosts one of the world's biggest film festivals and is often seen in movies and TV, it's usually dolled up to look like some other North American metropolis, say New York or Chicago, a fact the recent Scott Pilgrim makes sure to satirise.

The city's most iconic piece of architecture, the Cn Tower (formerly the world's tallest freestanding structure) is often hidden away, lest cinemagoers ever identify the city's skyline by its giant phallus.

Toronto so often represents other cities, or any city, that »

Canada Day Is Here! Hollywood Hails Our Neighbors To The North!

1 July 2010 8:12 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Happy Canada Day, readers! On this day in 1867, the Constitution Act was signed into being. The document effectively merged a group of British lands in North America into a single, unified country while also laying out the basic framework of the nation's government. It is a time now for the general celebration of all things Canadian. I'm here to do our part on the MTV Movies Blog, paying tribute to some of the amazing contributions Canada and her sons & daughters have made in Hollywood.

"South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut"

This is perhaps the best movie ever made to feature the nation of Canada as a major plot point. Yes, it does boil down to a rather vicious United States/Canada war. And yes, the whole thing is orchestrated by Satan and his damned, gay lover, the ghost of Saddam Hussein. It doesn't matter though. For one, Canada fights back. »

Free Flick of The Day: 'Cherry 2000'

3 May 2010 5:32 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Ok, I'm not going to lie to you: today's recommendation for Free Flick of the Day, Cherry 2000, isn't exactly what you would call a good movie. But before you scroll away, keep in mind, sometimes a bad movie can be as much fun as a good one -- and as bad movies go, Cherry 2000 is one of the best. The 1987 sci-fi action flick was directed by Steve De Jarnatt (director of the Canadian classic Strange Brew) and centers on a pampered businessman living in the distant future of (gasp!) 2017 who hires a sexy bad-ass tracker (played for some reason by Melanie Griffith) to help him find a replacement sex doll ( robot, much better) after his top of the line 'Cherry 2000' shorts out in the laundry room. And yes, you read that entire plot right.

By 1987, Ms. Griffith had already landed some pretty respectable »

Pilots: Taryn Manning joins 'Hawaii Five-o'

16 February 2010 2:25 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Taryn Manning is forging family ties with Alex O'Loughlin on "Hawaii Five-o," and Laurie Metcalf is headed back into the sitcom game in the latest round of pilot casting.

"The Forgotten" star Michelle Borth has also taken a role in a pilot, which may not be the best news for the show's future. Amy Smart and Brian Dennehy have also taken parts.

Manning ("Hustle & Flow," "Drive") will play Mary Ann McGarrett, the sister of O'Loughlin's Detective Steve McGarrett, in CBS' "Five-o" remake, according to The Hollywood Reporter. (The character was not a regular part of the original 1968-80 series, appearing in only a couple of episodes early in the show's run.)

She joins O'Loughlin and "Lost" star Daniel Dae Kim in the cast.

Other casting news:

- Emmy winner Metcalf ("Roseanne") has joined the cast of Fox's comedy pilot "Strange Brew," from "Will & Grace" creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan (and not, »
