Burlesque, according to early word, is a ‘guilty pleasure’. As is Flash Gordon. As is Rocky IV. As is, it seems, most of Simon’s DVD collection. So why should he feel ‘guilty’ about it, exactly?
Hopefully, he'll not mind me badly quoting him, but there's a segment in the last tour by stand-up comedian Dara O Briain where he makes a comment about the notion of guilty pleasures. His argument, and it's a sound one, is why should you feel guilty about liking something that entertains you? (Assuming it's legal, of course.) The example he cites is the band Take That, but you don't have to look far to see many examples in the movie world.
Earlier this week, then, I saw Burlesque. It was a film I had no intention of going to see, until I saw the avalanche of reviews from our American cousins. For many of »

Ghost: The Musical made me think of Patrick Swayze, which inevitably makes me think of Road House. Even if I have actually never seen this movie. I have heard all the MST3K jokes about it, though, including the traditional singing of the classic holiday carol “Let’s Have a Patrick Swayze Christmas.” I never expected all the jokes about being bigger, though. Now I really do have to see this flick... Road House is available on DVD in Region 1 from Amazon.com and from Amazon.ca, and in Region 2 from Amazon U.K. »

There are certain films that always seem to appear on TV near the witching hour, and often after several beers. Here’s a list of the ten best…
Picture the scenario: it's past eleven, you're back from the pub and feeling suitably refreshed. But before you head off to bed, you decide to turn the television for a spot of bleary-eyed channel hopping. And when you do, it's inevitably one of the following movies that appears on the screen...
Red Heat (1988)
Walter Hill's cheeky reworking of his own 1982 movie 48 Hrs, Red Heat is the consummate post-pub movie. You can only vaguely recollect the plot, the action sequences are similar enough to other films that you can easily muddle it up with half a dozen other 80s violent cop movies.
Here’s a bit of fun this Thursday lunchtime although if you’re going to watch the video that I’ve embedded below in an office, I suggest you use headphones. I love this video montages that people put together and today we’ve found this one on Pajiba (Put together by Harry Hanharan) called ‘The 100 Greatest Movie Insults of All Time’ which does exactly what it says on the tin.
Some of the insults are rude, some incredibly clever but all are entertaining. Pajiba also give us a list of every single film mention in the clip so follow along as you watch.
Please note, this video contains swearing.
Movies used in the video:
0’00 – Roxanne, Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Gleaming the Cube, The Princess Bride, A Fish Called Wanda, Star Wars, The Wizard of Oz, Casino, Three Amigos, A Clockwork Orange 1’05 – Dolemite, Glengarry Glen Ross, Bad Santa, »

Normally I don’t like to jump ahead in recaps too much. But this week’s episode ended with a scene that was just so … so … um … er … My Eyes! My Eyes! Make it stop! Oh for the love of … I want my mommy, make it stop!
Nope, I just can’t process it yet. We’ll have to wait until my eyeballs come back from being disinfected first. Then, maybe, just maybe, I’ll be able to find the words to tell you about this seriously #$%@ed up sex scene.
So let’s get back to where we left off last week … Sookie. Eric. Wolf. Gun shot.
Suddenly, things get all Matrix-y. We see the bullet slow-mowing through the room. Just as it’s about to strike down some wolfmeat, Eric – with impressive ballet-like precision – leaps across the room and takes the bullet in the chest himself.
The wolf morphs into human form – hey, »

Though best known for My Bloody Valentine 3D, director Patrick Lussier has spent a great deal of his career toiling around the baddest vampire of them all, Count Dracula. And it appears as if Patrick could be ready to bare his fangs once again.
The flick "follows a young, ambitious female public defender who must try and get an acquittal for a man who claims he killed his wife to save her soul, the shocker being that he says his wife was a vampire. But the best defense - proving that vampires really exist - puts the attorney's life in danger."

Bloody Disgusting learned exclusively today that one of Patrick Lussier's potential future projects could be a new thriller entitled In Darkness. Penned by Rowdy Herrington (director of Road House), the intriguing pic follows a young, ambitious female public defender who must try and get an acquittal for a man who claims he killed his wife to save her soul; the shocker being that he claims his wife was a vampire. But the best defense - proving that vampires really exist - puts the attorney's life in danger. Patrick Lussier, who is "in talks" for the project, is in the middle of delivering Drive Angry 3D to Summit Entertainment for release on February 11. Lussier also directed the Todd Farmer penned My Bloody Valentine 3D and was collaborating with Farmer on Halloween 3D. »

This is 5 films for romantics that men and women can enjoy together! ( So long as you dont mind »
