Is Guardians Of The Galaxy far enough behind us now to mention that it had some flaws?
Before you reach for your digital pitchforks, that’s not suggesting that Gotg wasn’t a very good film indeed; it was fun, funny, exciting and the same but different in the best possible way – a perfect summer movie. Almost.
Freddy Got Fingered aside, there’s no such thing as a perfect movie. Ronan was an imposing but rather empty, 2D nemesis, Thanos looked like an unfinished character from a computer game cut scene and Nebula was a nebulous presence, and that’s without going in to some of the more general criticisms that tend to recur in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
There are now ten entries in the McU, and as much as it’s tempting to award the studio a perfect ten, this position doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. »

Before Gareth Edwards became famous for making Godzilla, the filmmaker was best known for his work on the 2010 indie film Monsters. That feature felt like a bit of a test run for Edwards. take on one of Kaiju cinema.s most enduring creations, even if it was quiet and restrained where the Godzilla films of old were often boisterous and destructive. Monsters garnered so much love from the general public that a sequel seemed like a viable idea . albeit without Edwards sitting behind the camera -- and you can see the first trailer above. Tom Green (no, not the comedian who gave us Freddy Got Fingered.) has stepped in to guide the follow up film, Monsters: Dark Continent, through the arduous gauntlet of production. Today we.ve got the very first trailer and the following logo for his take on the material, thanks to the folks over at The Flickering »
It's hard to believe or even remember that at one time, Canadian funnyman Tom Green was once considered the next big thing. The comedian managed to take his cult cable access show, launch it on The Comedy Network where he gained a broader audience, and soon was treating viewers on MTV with his unique brand of shock, absurdist behaviour and gross-out humor. And because Hollywood always wants a taste of whatever is hot and current, they came for Green and offered him a movie deal. He took the opportunity and made "Freddy Got Fingered," a movie designed to be everything that a star showcasing vehicle usually isn't. It bombed and was savaged by critics on release, but in the years since, has earned a cult following. But was it really the disaster it was presented as in 2001? Not according to Green.

There are few better emblems of our unique pop-culture tableau than Tom Green. The Ottawa native’s eponymous 1999 MTV show, highlighted by its goateed host’s stunted on-air persona and willingness to suckle cow’s teats, somehow led to the cover of Rolling Stone, hosting duties on Saturday Night Live, lyrical citation from Eminem, a studio-backed cinematic tour de something named Freddy Got Fingered, and, most sensational, a brief marriage to Drew Barrymore. More than a decade since that heady time, Green is two seasons deep into Tom Green Live!, an intimate, unrehearsed, uncensored hour-long talk show (guests have ranged from Sandra Bernhard to Dan Rather) that airs weeknights on Axs TV, the network formerly known as HD Net. And while that means a more reserved Green as host and interviewee, Tgl! still features some of the 42-year-old entertainer’s trademark unpredictability, such as having fans mail in used cassettes »
