Do you have a “golden year”, the year where everything seemed to come together? Maybe you got the perfect job and met Ms. or Mr. Right all within just a few months. Well, for Mr. Jim Carrey a good case could be made for 1994. After putting in several years on TV (“The Duck Factory” “In Living Color”) along with sporadic screen roles (from The Dead Pool to Once Bitten), his career went super-nova with the unexpected smash Ace Ventura, Pet Detective in the first few months of that year. In the Summer it was another box office bonanza with The Mask. But the icing on the cake may have been his holiday-time hit Dumb And Dumber. In the ensuing two decades, Jim’s had his highs and lows, even supporting up and coming new comedy flick stars like Steve Carrell in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone last year. He’s also tackled some dramatic roles, »

"Excalibur" was a formative theatrical experience for me. It was one of the first R-rated films I specifically decided I wanted to see in a theater. I'd seen other R-rated films before that, but always at random and because someone else decided I was going to see it. With "Excalibur," I was crazy to see it, and the film landed on me like a ton of bricks. Surreal, violent, beautiful, explicit, and for a mythology nut, seeing how the film dealt with each of the characters, each of the Arthurian archetypes, I was in love. One of the guys who made an impression in the film was a young Liam Neeson, and for the rest of the '80s, he racked up a number of performances where, good film or bad, he made an impression. How could he not? No one else looked like him. Slightly over eight feet tall, »

Teen Wolf took Hall H on Thursday, where stars Tyler Posey, Dylan O’Brien and more dished on what fans can expect from the rest of season 4, and announced Teen Wolf has been picked up for a fifth season.
Teen Wolf To Focus On "Human Problems"
Executive producer Jeff Davis kicked off the excitement, announcing that MTV had picked up Teen Wolf for a 20-episode season 5 – eight episodes longer than season 4. After revealing the big news, Davis spoke about how he sees Teen Wolf evolving in season 4, noting that he wants to move away from the heavy mythology of the show. Davis mentioned Stephen Spielberg’s E.T. as the prime example, saying, “[It goes] back to human problems as oppose to creating another mythology or a creature.”
MTV’s Teen Wolf Season 4 aired its fifth episode last night, leaving us with more questions than answers. The confusion started with a girl running around Beacon Hills High. Not only was it odd for her to be running around at night, but she had blood on her hands — or should I say hand, since she later revealed that one of them had been cut off, which made some sense once Violet showed up with her trusty burning lasso. Unfortunately, it was the end of the road for this new wolf girl when she is able to escape Violet, … Continue reading →

Clint Eastwood Week with Alan Spencer! concludes at Trailers from Hell, with screenwriter Spencer introducing "The Dead Pool."The fifth and final film in Eastwood’s “Dirty Harry” series is memorable for early career appearances by Liam Neeson and Jim Carrey. Directed by Buddy Van Horn whose remarkably long and action-packed career as a stunt man (beginning in 1951 with the Byron Haskin western Warpath) was sidetracked by three directorial jobs for Eastwood, including Dead Pool, Pink Cadillac and Any Which Way You Can. Versatile cinematographer Jack Green went on to provide the uniquely noirish western look for Eastwood’s oscar-winning Unforgiven. »

It's easy to forget that, two decades ago, Jim Carrey was just a talented TV sketch comedian who'd been trying for a decade to break into films. (Remember his roles in "Peggy Sue Got Married," "The Dead Pool," or "Earth Girls Are Easy"? Didn't think so.) But then came "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" (released 20 years ago this week, on February 4, 1994), in which Carrey starred as a hyperactive sleuth tasked with finding the Miami Dolphins' kidnapped mascot, and suddenly, he was an A-list box office draw.
Critics didn't think much of the puerile Ace, whose favorite gag was talking through his butt cheeks. But audiences loved him, enough to make Carrey an overnight star after 10 years of trying, and enough to put the film on permanent rotation on basic cable for the next 20 years.
Still, as many times as you've seen "Ace Ventura," there's probably a lot you don't know about »
