The Nastiest Movie Moments of 2017

Ben Robins on the nastiest movie moments of 2017…

It’s been a banner year for fairly disgusting things on-screen. No real guesses as to why, but we’re not here to slave over the reasons. We’re here to simply recount, and to celebrate.

From FrightFest-backed horrors, to gonzo arthouse dealings and even the occasional indie weepy, this year’s rundown of the grimiest and grisliest goings-on in film is actually, for the first time in a while, a little over-stuffed. And it’s not all just visceral gore either, 2017 saw a whole bunch of seriously effective psychological thrillers throwing their hat in the ring too, not to mention the occasional bit of dark humour. So without much further ado, and in no particular order…

*The following may contain spoilers*

Raw – The Finger

Originally hitting the festival circuit in 2016, Julia Ducournau’s coming-of-age cannibal horror was a serious breakout hit

‘Office Christmas Party’ DVD Review

Stars: Jason Bateman, Olivia Munn, T.J. Miller, Jennifer Aniston, Kate McKinnon, Courtney B. Vance, Jillian Bell, Rob Corddry, Vanessa Bayer, Randall Park, Sam Richardson, Jamie Chung | Written by Justin Malen, Laura Solon, Dan Mazer | Directed by Josh Gordon, Will Speck

Josh Gordon and Will Speck, co-directors of one of, if not The, greatest ice-skating comedy ever (Blades of Glory), re-team for another buddy comedy that once again mixes gross-out humour and heartfelt laughs – this time in a story set in the world of office politics. Think Animal House for the tech generation…

Reminiscent of the Seth Rogen flick The Night Before, Office Christmas Party is very much in the same vein: an ensemble cast in a crazy scenario, featuring raunchy comedy and some totally outrageous situations and it’s all set over the Christmas holiday season. It also shares a similar taste in songs, in fact the two films could

Keurig CEO Backs Down in Response to Sean Hannity Boycott: ‘This Is an Unacceptable Situation’

Keurig CEO Backs Down in Response to Sean Hannity Boycott: ‘This Is an Unacceptable Situation’
After #BoycottKeurig started trending on Twitter over the weekend, the coffee machine company’s CEO Bob Gamgort has expressed regret in an email to employees obtained by The Washington Post.

In case you’re not up to speed, the company announced in a tweet on Saturday that they were halting advertising on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show following the anchor’s controversial comments about Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who is facing allegations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls, one as young as 14.

This sparked a right-wing backlash, with Hannity calling for a boycott of the company — and his

Corporate Chaos Ensues In The Bloody First Clip For Mayhem

Think you’re having a bad day? Just wait until you see this new and blood-drenched clip for Mayhem, Joe Lynch’s corporate thriller that places Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) in the thick of an epic office brawl.

Here’s the synopsis for more:

Workers Get the Axe in this First Trailer for Mayhem

The first trailer for Joe Lynch's (Chillerama, 2011) Mayhem has been released. It shows a group of office workers turning on each other, after infectious material is introduced into the building.

Watch John C. McGinley Watch Himself in Office Space in New Promo Video for Stan Against Evil Season 2

  • DailyDead
"Office Space... there's a comedy. They ought to call it Bobspace. It's all about the Bobs." If you watched the first season of Stan Against Evil (which I highly recommend), then you know that Stan (played by John C. McGinley) would rather just sit back in his chair and enjoy his retirement instead of getting blood sprayed on him all the time while slaying demons and saving the world. Well, in a new promo video released by IFC, McGinley gets to do just that, although what he ends up watching is himself as one of the Bobs in the cult classic comedy Office Space.

You can watch the new promo video below, and in case you missed it, watch the teaser trailer for the second season of Stan Against Evil, which premieres on November 1st on IFC.

The 100 Greatest Comedies of All-Time, According to BBC’s Critics Poll

After polling critics from around the world for the greatest American films of all-time, BBC has now forged ahead in the attempt to get a consensus on the best comedies of all-time. After polling 253 film critics, including 118 women and 135 men, from 52 countries and six continents a simple, the list of the 100 greatest is now here.

Featuring canonical classics such as Some Like It Hot, Dr. Strangelove, Annie Hall, Duck Soup, Playtime, and more in the top 10, there’s some interesting observations looking at the rest of the list. Toni Erdmann is the most recent inclusion, while the highest Wes Anderson pick is The Royal Tenenbaums. There’s also a healthy dose of Chaplin and Lubitsch with four films each, and the recently departed Jerry Lewis has a pair of inclusions.

Get a Bad Case of the Mondays at Office Space Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

“If they move my desk again I’m quitting”

“I’m going to need you to come in on Saturday, and also come in on Sunday too”

“Are you related to the Michael Bolton?”

“Oh, and remember: next Friday… is Hawaiian shirt day. So, you know, if you want to, go ahead and wear a Hawaiian shirt and jeans.”

Office Space screens this Friday and Saturday nights (June 30th and July 1st) at midnight at the Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at the Tivoli’ Midnight series.

There are so many famous quotes from Office Space!

If you are working for a big company, especially if you are in software business, you will find yourself in Office Space, an irreverent comedy from 1999 starring Ron Livingston and Jennifer Aniston that makes fun of the inanities of work–particularly in a cubicle-ed office where the bosses are morons (not that

Back To The Future Kicks Off the New ‘Reel Late at the Tivoli’ Midnight Series this Weekend

“One other thing. If you guys ever have kids, and one of them, when he’s eight years old, accidentally sets fire to the living room rug… go easy on him.”

Back To The Future screens this Friday and Saturday nights (June 23rd and 24th) at midnight at the Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at the Tivoli’ Midnight series.

Today, the original Back To The Future (1985) is dated only by its Huey Lewis soundtrack and the choice of a De Lorean as a time machine. Except for a needless scene in which an obviously dubbed Michael J. Fox pretends he’s both Chuck Berry and Jimi Hendrix, there’s little to criticize, and much to admire. One surprise in watching Back To The Future 32 years later is how cleverly the plot and script ties the past and present events together. Watching the film for a second or

The Tivoli Announces the ‘Reel Late’ Midnight Line-Up – Shaft, The Room, The Exorcist, and More!

Another brilliant lineup of midnight movies for the ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ to kick off the summer 2017 season. It’s a typically good variety of titles that will draw the late night movie buff crowd with a couple of retro surprises. The Midnight Movie experience has always catered to a college-age crowd and that’s the way it should be. The oldest film this time is Shaft from 1971 and the most recent is The Room from 2003. It’s always exciting when Tommy Wiseau comes to town. There’s a Miyazaki thrown in there for attendance insurance and a handful of standards including Office Space and The Princess Bride . The only title I’m certain is new to the Tivoli midnight roster is Shaft, and I suspect it will draw a good crowd.

Here’s the line-up:

June 23-24 Back To The Future

June 30-July 1 Office Space

July 7-8 Blazing Saddles
