Interview: Pustulus Maximus and Blothar of Gwar

27 February 2015 2:41 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

[Ed. Note: The lovely individuals of awesome monster band Gwar are known for taking the piss, so please take them—and Daniel Xiii, for that matter—with a block of salt, and note that this article is not at all safe for work.]

Holy cats, my creeps: I recently had a diabolical dream fulfilled recently when I was summoned to appear before Gwar themselves when they rolled through my neck of the wicked woods. And let me tell ya, we had a conversation like no other! Wait, what is that? You actually want to know what went on in that cursed convo? Well, today’s yer lucky day, as I just so happened to transcribe the terror talk!

Famous Monsters. Well, well, well, if it isn’t the world’s most gruesome guitarist, Pustulus Maximus! Greetings, fellow ghoul! How has life on the raunchy road been treatin’ yer ass?

Pustulus Maximus. The tour has been going really well. People have been showin’ up which is really f–king important! It’s goin’ great. I haven’t got any complaints… other than the lack of handjobs, but what are ya gonna do?

Second Opinion – Project Almanac (2015)

21 February 2015 9:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Project Almanac, 2015

Directed by Dean Israelite

Starring  Jonny Weston, Sofia Black-d’Elia, Sam LernerAllen Evangelista, Virginia Gardner and Amy Landecker

Synopsis:

A found-footage teen-flick, whereby our college-applying scientists find a clock-rewinding contraption in the basement…

Creating a time travel movie that doesn’t have any leaky gaps in its plot is a very tricky thing to pull off. Similarly creating a found-footage movie that doesn’t feel contrived or forced is also very difficult to get right. Combine the two together and Dean Israelite really had a hard task on his hands to make this found footage time travel movie make sense while never feeling too gimmicky. And to his credit, he mostly succeeds. But some sloppy writing choices and half baked ideas really hold back Project Almanac from what could have been a great sci-fi movie.

Firstly, you need to have your time travel rules written down so »

'Blood Simple' to Albert Brooks: Why Spring of 1985 was something special

20 February 2015 12:40 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are roughly 900,000 tribute pieces online this week about the 1985 John Hughes film "The Breakfast Club," and I understand the motivation. If you were the right age when the film was released (I was 15 at the time), that movie felt like a lightning bolt right to the face. Hughes treated teenagers like they were actual people with complex emotional lives worthy of respect, and while that would seem to be a logical approach to writing about any character, it certainly didn't feel average when he did it. He wrote about that secret world of teenagers with what felt like laser accuracy, and he basically created an entire industry of movies that tried to tap into that same audience. So certainly, there is much to celebrate when looking back at that particular film, but when I went to look at a list of the films that came out in 1985, a year »

‘Grand Budapest Hotel,’ ‘True Detective’ Top WGA Awards

14 February 2015 5:28 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wes Anderson’s whimsical script for “The Grand Budapest Hotel” took the Writers Guild of America award for original screenplay, while Graham Moore’s script for codebreaking thriller “The Imitation Game” won for adapted screenplay.

HBO’s “True Detective” and FX’s “Louie” each took a pair of TV trophies.

“Alan Turing is the person for who we made this film,” Moore said in his acceptance speech at the Century Plaza in Los Angeles. “It is on the shoulders of his genius that we made this film.”

Anderson, who shares story credit with Hugo Guiness, recalled in his acceptance speech that it was appropriate to receive the award in Century City since he had worked with longtime collaborator Owen Wilson at a nearby motel many years ago.

“I can think of no greater neighborhood to accept this award in,” Anderson added.

WGA Awards 2015: Honoree Harold Ramis Led Quiet Revolution in Comedy

12 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The business of comedy writing in film is often a criminally under-laurelled one, and in life, multitalented writer-director-actor Harold Ramis only picked up a single screenwriting award (a Bafta for “Groundhog Day”) for a scripting career that spanned from “Animal House” to “Ghostbusters,” “Caddyshack” and “Back to School.”

Now the posthumous recipient of the WGA’s Laurel Award for Screenwriting Achievement, Ramis joins an august group of fellow funnymen including Mel Brooks, Blake Edwards, Paul Mazursky and Norman Krasna, and it’s hard to argue he doesn’t belong in their company.

During his decade-plus heyday, Ramis was the quietest kind of auteur, sculpting a new model for the modern comedy that came so naturally its novelty was easy to miss. Rooted in the frantic, countercultural anarchy of sketch comedy (his pre-film career included stints with National Lampoon and “Sctv”), Ramis’ work easily incorporated the rhythms of classic screwball comedy, »

One groundhog is particularly pissed about the six extra weeks of winter!

'Flash' Time Travel Episode Is a 'Terminator'/'Back to the Future' Mashup

3 February 2015 8:40 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, it was revealed that The CW's hit series The Flash will introduce a time travel element in the 15th episode. While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the show's executive producer Andrew Kreisberg teased more details about the show, revealing that it combines both the good and bad aspects of time travel. Here's what he had to say, teasing that the episode will be a mashup of The Terminator and Back to The Future.

"There's an episode coming up where there is inadvertent connection to the Speed Force that results in probably our funniest hour as well as our darkest hour as the dangers of time travel come to light. It's a mashup between Back to The Future and Terminator-the good version of time travel and the bad version of time travel."

Series star Grant Gustin added that the episode will also be influenced by the 1993 comedy Groundhog Day, teasing »

"The Flash" Time Travel To Change The Show

3 February 2015 8:27 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The CW's hit series "The Flash" is slated to introduce a time travel element in the fifteenth episode of the season. Ahead of that, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells Entertainment Weekly that this new power will have consequences both good and bad for the characters:

"There's an episode coming up where there is inadvertent connection to the Speed Force that results in probably our funniest hour as well as our darkest hour as the dangers of time travel come to light. It's a mashup between Back to The Future and Terminator-the good version of time travel and the bad version of time travel."

The show's star Grant Gustin says the episode is also influenced by the 1993 comedy "Groundhog Day" which will see Barry accidentally traveling at first, and then coming to realise the power that comes with what he's doing:

"It's a complete accident the first time [he time travels]. It's really confusing »

The Flash time travel episodes will be “a mashup between Back to the Future and Terminator”

3 February 2015 7:57 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Even though yesterday was Groundhog Day, The Flash star Grant Gustin has been using the movie as a comparison for the upcoming time travel episodes of the series.

“It’s a complete accident the first time [he time travels],” Gustin told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s really confusing because now we’re playing with timelines and we’re having to shoot things a couple different ways. It’s like a Groundhog’s Day-type element. It’s really funny and really exciting.”

“He’s not handling it incredibly well. It’s freaking him out a little bit,” Gustin continues. “He realizes, ‘Holy s**t, this an opportunity to change things with my family’s past,’ He doesn’t know yet to maybe not do that, but that’s where Barry’s at when he realizes what he’s just learned that he can do, that he can maybe save his mom.”

Did You Know: The Real Reason Why Bill Murray Kept Living on Repeat in 'Groundhog Day'?

2 February 2015 4:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

What's not to love about Bill Murray as an ill-fated weatherman who is forced to relive the same day over and over in Groundhog Day? Comedy gold. If you've ever wondered the real reasons why Murray's sourpuss meteorologist was chosen to repeat the same sadistic time loop, voiceover artist Eddie Deezen has your answer. He ponders why Murray's Phil deserved such a hefty punishment and points to the second draft of the script for an explanation. Apparently it has to do with a curse that Phil's ex-girlfriend put on him. "Literally, she opens a book of magic spells and does a little ritual that causes him to get stuck in time…. There is no 'higher purpose' given, just an angry, embittered ex-girlfriend with a little book,&quot...

Beauty vs Beast: Winter Is (Still) Coming

2 February 2015 3:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here with another round of "Beauty vs Beast" -- this week we're headed to Gobbler's Knob (I still can't believe that's a real name of a real place) in the little town called Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, about an hour and a half outside of Pittsburgh, where the fate of our Winter lay in the balance. Well laid in the balance, that is - it's already been reported this morning that the world's furriest prognisicator this side of Sam Champion, the eternal Punxsutawney Phil, has seen his shadow and laid six more weeks of Winter upon us. Boo, Phil. Seeing as how I awoke to several fresh inches of slush this morning, I'm not terribly surprised by the forecast, but still. Boo, Phil.

Which brings me to what is maybe the greatest comedy ever made about the maybe dumbest holiday on the calendar: Harold Ramis' also-eternal 1993 Bill Murray comedy Groundhog Day, »

20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Didn’t Know About Groundhog Day

1 February 2015 7:47 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

It’s February 2nd, again.

With all of the world’s eyes turned towards Gobbler’s Knob and the twitching nose of one hairy weatherman, this is the perfect time to turn your attention back to one of cinema’s most beloved and critically acclaimed comedies from the great minds of Harold Ramis and Bill Murray.

Witty, barbed and with a dark heart that was never quite as nasty nor as draining as it could have been, Groundhog Day has transcended the usual limits of the medium to become a genuine cultural phenomenon as well as a bona-fide dictionary term. That’s no small achievement in itself, but in film-making terms it is the least accolade of a justifiably adored film. It might have cost the world Harold Ramis and Bill Murray as a team, but it did tranform the latter from clown into pathos-laden leading man in very real terms. »

Project Almanac Is a Good B-Movie That Hits Its Marks

30 January 2015 1:09 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Frank Sinatra (via Paul Anka) is probably the only person who has ever had too few regrets to mention; the rest of us find solace in fantasies of going back and doing it again. The smart and super-slick teen time-machine picture Project Almanac is the latest incarnation of this would-coulda-shoulda pipe-dream — a movie so knowing that its characters reference Looper, Groundhog Day, and maybe five other films that lay out the pros and cons of rewriting the past. They’ve seen what happens but they never learn!The visual wrinkle in Project Almanac is that it’s shot with one or two video cameras wielded by the characters, which struck me as dumb (as well as nausea-inducing) at the start but proves to be a cool device for our heroes to look at what they’ve just done and go back and do it differently.
