‘Mars Needs Moms’ starring Seth Green and Joan Cusack – trailer review

24 November 2010 6:33 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Mars Needs Moms

Directed by: Simon Wells

Starring: Seth Green, Joan Cusack, Dan Fogler

Rating: Not Rated

Release Date: March 11, 2011

Trailer Score: 4/10

My Thoughts: Another film with dead-eyed characters from the company that brought you The Polar Express and Disney’s A Christmas Carol.  They don’t look as horrifying but they’re still pretty creepy.  A boy’s mother is abducted and taken to Mars and he goes to save her?  Find her?  It’s unclear.  I really like Green, he voices the boy and sounds like a kid though he’s definitely not one anymore.  But the plot seems reminiscent of the Teri Garr/Jon Lovitz classic Mom and Dad Save the World. The jokes seem pretty clunky too.  Why go through the labor and expense of putting together a computer animated film if you’re not going to make a good script?  The aliens looked kind of cool though, »

For Your Consideration: The Mad Men Season Premiere Recap

26 July 2010 3:43 PM, PDT | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

This is a recap for the Season 4 premiere of Mad Men starring Jon Hamm, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, January Jones, and a bunch of other people whom you can learn about here. If you have not seen the episode then, yeah, this will probably spoil something for you, idiot. Enjoy! Best Cameo Bart Simpson. Trapped in Bert Cooper’s Blazer. Best Fight Over Canned Meat The Ladies Fighting Over Ham. You have to admit, Peggy’s idea to make people buy more canned ham might have been the first time anyone’s ever thought of viral marketing in the history of fake television shows about advertising. Indeed, the idea worked beautifully: Two ladies fought over ham, and the story wormed its way into the papers. But what made this scenario extra-special for us were the actresses hired. Because while most female Mad Men fans picture themselves as a “Joan”, I »

Horror at the Oscars 3: The Spawning

10 March 2010 11:16 PM, PST | | See recent Dread Central news »

After the Academy’s attempt at honoring genre during the live show, we saw a real tribute to horror by someone who is truly one of our own. Bob Murawski thanked Sam Raimi for giving him his “first cutting job” in Army of Darkness. His Best Editing award for Hurt Locker was shared by his partner Chris Innis, whom he met on the Raimi produced TV show “American Gothic.”

I gotta say, never since Peter Jackson’s (who was nominated this year for District 9) thank you to the crew of Meet the Feebles has there been such an excellent genre shout out.

On top of working with Raimi for over a decade, Murawski also runs Grindhouse Releasing, which distributes and restores cult and horror films with a focus on extreme Italian cinema. Pieces, The Beyond, Cannibal Holocaust, and I Drink Your Blood are just a few names you’ll find in Grindhouse Releasing's catalogue. »

Horror at the Oscars Part 2: This Time It's Personal

9 March 2010 12:49 AM, PST | | See recent Dread Central news »

Horror fanatics are still buzzing like chainsaws over the Academy Awards’ genre montage. Anywhere there could be a conversation about it online, there was one. Many were upset over the Twilight ‘tweens’ participation, as if their mere presence sent a message about the state of scary in Hollyweird, USA.

A few seemed happy, though, to just get a glimpse of their beloved Evil Dead and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 if only for a few seconds. But many called the selections generic and thoughtless, demanding the likes of Demons and TerrorVision instead (well, maybe not TerrorVision; that was just me).

How about Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer? Re-Animator? It’s Alive? Tombs of the Blind Dead? Coffin Joe? No list is perfect, but with a bit more care and a phone call to any one of us, the Oscars could have elevated that section into a real scream. Or maybe they »
