Ten Terrible Movie Taglines

  • Cinelinx
Good movies tend to have solid taglines. Bad movies almost always have questionable taglines. Coincidence?

Taglines may not be the most important component of a film’s advertising, but having a good one can be beneficial. A good tagline should be something that is memorable, catchy, informative of the films’ plot or tone, and unique. Consider the tagline from Alien, “In space no one will hear you scream,” or Jurassic Park, “An adventure 65 million years in the making.” At other times, movie taglines have been famous quotes from the film. Examples are “One ring to rule them all,” from Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films, or “All work and no play make Jack a dull boy,” from The Shining. Simply put, having a solid movie tagline is worth the effort.

This is a look at a few films where the effort was clearly lacking or misplaced. Sometimes they are trying too hard.

[[tmz:video id="0_5jrzukju"]] The Weeknd doesn't seem to be experiencing any post-breakup blues ... in fact, it looks like he's having a damn good time being a single guy.

'Game of Thrones': Everything You Need to Know for Season 7
When you play the game of thrones, you learn to expect the unexpected. But even so, the previous season of Game of Thrones did something totally unprecedented in the history of HBO's blockbuster show: It got less complicated from start to finish, not more.

Yes, we are nearing the endgame, which means a whole lot of major players got knocked off the board last year. Now the unholy trinity of King in the North Jon Snow, Queen of the Seven Kingdoms Cersei Lannister and Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen are

Chris Cornell's Death Ruled a Suicide

Chris Cornell's Death Ruled a Suicide
Without warning of any kind, it was announced late last night that singer and musician Chris Cornell had passed away at the young age of just 52. At the time of the report, no cause of death was given. This morning, it looks like the singer may have taken his own life. But no further details are being made available to the public.

Detroit Police have confirmed to ABC News that Cornell's sudden death is being investigated as a possible suicide. Officer Jennifer Moreno, who is leading the case, said the singer's body was found inside his hotel room at the MGM Grand shortly after a friend of the family went to check in on Cornell. No other details have been released to the public about the cause of death thus far. No further comments could be made.

Cornell had just finished what would be his final Soundgarden show at the

What Josh Gad Might Look Like as The Penguin in The Batman Movie

Without warning, context, or any kind of explanation, Josh Gad got the Dceu universe pretty excited when he inexplicably tweeted a photo of a very famous DC comic character: The Penguin. The image combined with the Dceu’s collective fan base also being fans of Gad, lead to rampant speculation that the actor may have taken a role as The Penguin for an upcoming movie. At the current time the idea is nothing more than rumor but that hasn’t stopped people from talking or even conjuring up images of Gad as Oswald Chesterfield Copperpot. One of the best artists when it

Their Finest review – sharp wartime romance

Gemma Arterton shines in a big-hearted and witty drama about the making of a second world war propaganda film

London, 1940. Catrin (Gemma Arterton) is scurrying home through the blitzed streets at dusk. Without warning, she is sideswiped by a bomb blast. Blinking grit from her eyes, she stumbles into a pile of broken bodies. Her initial horror tips into laughter when she realises that they are shop mannequins. Then she notices that one of them is bleeding – a salesgirl lies amid the wreckage of the window display. While the dust and death is still clearing from the air, Catrin vomits from shock, silhouetted in a yawning archway.

The scene elegantly combines twin themes in this bracing second world war romance from Lone Scherfig. It captures the savage uncertainty of life during wartime; and, in a nod to the film’s movie industry backdrop, it deftly peels back layers of reality and artifice.

Review: ‘Your Name’ is an Exhilarating Philosophical and Metaphysical Parable

I had no idea what to expect upon sitting down to Your Name and the first few minutes definitely had my head spinning. We’re ushered in via the voiceover narration of two high schoolers we’ve yet to properly meet in Mitsuha (Mone Kamishiraishi) and Taki (Ryûnosuke Kamiki). They speak about dreams as a rare comet shoots across the blue sky. It’s cryptic, beautiful, and utterly fascinating—a subdued tone easing us in before a kinetic collage of vignettes without context replaces it, a Radwimps rock anthem blaring about love. This shift to music video interlude proves jarringly abrupt; its culmination marked by Mitsuha awakening from slumber a wonderful splash into the deep-end of this anime’s high concept romantic fantasy.

My disorientation continued because this girl didn’t seem herself. Without warning, logic, or exposition beyond those opening lines of esoteric prose, we suddenly realize the person

Wilson – Review

This week sees another comic book adaptation arrive at movie theatres, while the Lego Batman and Logan are still pulling audiences in at the multiplex. Ah, but this film is not another superhero slugfest (we’ll have three more of those from Marvel Studios, and two from Warner/DC by the year’s end). No this comes from the “upper classes” of illustrated narratives, those “serious and somber” graphic novels (kind of a “highfalutin'” moniker). Several prestige flicks have been based on such books, like The History Of Violence and The Road To Perdition (both earned Oscar noms). The “graphic artist” (hey, I’ll bet he’d prefer cartoonist) behind this new film is no stranger to cinema. Matter of fact, this is his third feature-length movie adaptation. The first was my personal favorite flick of 2001, the quirky Ghost World (no ectoplasmic apparitions, but a teenage Scarlett Johansson). Five years

The Heartbreaking Reason Behind the Hound's Massive Facial Scars

Sandor Clegane, better known as the Hound, has consistently been one of the most interesting characters to appear in Game of Thrones. He starts off as an unfeeling, callous, and violent warrior loyal to the late King Joffrey, but with a little help from Sansa and Arya, he gradually becomes a little less unfeeling, a little less callous, and a little less vio - Ok, no, he's still pretty violent. Although the Hound is known for a lot of things (mostly gutting people with an ax, but that's neither here nor there), one of his most prominent traits is the giant scar that mars his face, the origin of which explains his predilection for brutality. His violence, though graphic, is not surprising given the traumatic childhood he endured with his abusive, monstrous older brother, Gregor Clegane, aka the Mountain. In season one, Sandor briefly opens up to Sansa about the

Mary-Louise Parker to Play Janey Patterson in Series Adaptation of Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes

  • DailyDead
Fans of Showtime’s Weeds series are in for a treat, because Mary-Louise Parker has joined the cast of Mr. Mercedes, the DirecTV series adaptation of Stephen King’s 2014 novel of the same name.

According to THR, Parker (R.I.P.D., Fried Green Tomatoes) will portray the recurring role of Janey Patterson, the younger sibling of the deceased Olivia Trelawney. Janey’s character plays a key role in helping an ex-detective Bill Hodges (Brendan Gleeson) track down a relentless, boastful killer (played by Harry Treadaway, who replaced Anton Yelchin in the role after the actor’s tragic death).

In addition to Parker, Gleeson, and Treadaway, the Mr. Mercedes cast also features Holland Taylor, Kelly Lynch, and Jharrel Jerome.

Adapted for the screen by David E. Kelley and directed by Jack Bender, the (planned ten-episode) Mr. Mercedes series is slated to premiere this autumn on DirecTV, DirecTV Now, and the At&T U-verse.

She’s Back! Kendall Jenner Returns to Instagram One Week After Deleting Account

She’s Back! Kendall Jenner Returns to Instagram One Week After Deleting Account
Kendall Jenner‘s social media “detox” has ended after just seven days.

Last Sunday, Jenner, 21, deleted her Instagram account with no warning. And on Tuesday, the model opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about her reasons for going on a hiatus.

“I just wanted to detox,” Jenner told DeGeneres. “I just wanted a little bit of a break. I would wake up in the morning and look at it first thing, I would go to bed and it would be the last thing I looked at. I felt a little too dependent on it so I wanted to take a minute.

Headshot Review [Tiff 2016]

Dear America – please outsource all action films to Indonesia from here-on-out. How can you watch a movie like Headshot and be content with typical Us ground-and-pound generics? The Mo Brothers (Kimo Stamboel/Timo Tjahjanto) break more bones than a twenty-story fall, (assumably) spending most of their budget on limb-cracking practical effects that still can’t distract from such aggressive beauty. Iko Uwais makes Jason Bourne look like a punk bitch in this brilliantly bone-crunching symphony of destruction, proving both the Mo Brothers and Mr. Uwais to be as boldly badass as we hoped their latest genre assault would permit.

Uwais plays a man who calls himself Ishmael, only because he wakes up in a hospital bed with no memory or identification. In the room is a napping Dr. Ailin (Chelsea Islan), who’s shocked by the previously-comatose patient’s now lively demeanor. She immediately begins nursing the empty-minded Ishmael back to strength,
