An Artist Imagined Who Disney Princesses Would Dress Up as for Halloween

1 hour ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Spoiler alert: Tinkerbell as ‘Kill Bill’ is The Best.

Have you decided who you’re dressing as for Halloween? Someone from Frozen? Maybe throwback to Snow White or Alice in Wonderland? We dress as Disney princesses, but who do the Disney Princesses dress as?

Isaiah K. Stephens, an artist from Massachusetts, drew the answers!

“I chose Disney princesses as the base of the project because, as a whole, I think they appeal to not only varying types of girls/women but us guys as well,” Isaiah told ETonline. “I know some people think that they place negative and unrealistic gender roles for young girls to follow, but as an artist, I've always enjoyed looking past their exterior and actually paying attention to the story being told.”

Snow White as Wonder Woman

Mulan as Xena the Warrior Princess

Belle from Beauty and the Beast as Hermoine Granger

Ariel from The Little Mermaid as Black Widow from Avengers

Film Review: Don’t Say That You Love Me in Kevin Smith’s ‘Tusk’

20 September 2014 6:11 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The headline is a quote (“Don’t say that you love me!”) from Fleetwood Mac’s song “Tusk,” which Kevin Smith gratefully includes in his film of the same name. The movie is either the most outrageous audacity of the year or a blatant middle finger from Smith to the audience. You decide.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

I liked it, I hated it, I was mesmerized by some of the lengths the story took to stay on track. There were times during the proceedings where it seemed like the whole thing was a fraud, in the sense that Wizard-of-Oz like, Smith was going to walk on camera and say, “ha, dopes, you fell for it” (but he would have said something more piquant than “dopes”). The film defies logic, definition or a basis in dreamland, but it makes up in chutzpah, which has never been lacking in Kevin Smith. Whatever the final analysis will be, »

Fantastic Fest 2014: Tusk – The Review

19 September 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Kevin Smith’s second venture into horror camp – the use of camp is not an accident – may seem like a grand departure for him on the surface, but make no mistake, Smith is still in his comfortable and safe wheelhouse. Tusk is without a doubt a Kevin Smith film to the extent that his fans will glorify it as his new crowning achievement and critics will roll their eyes and claim it as a pompous excuse of horror deconstruction. Neither are fairly accurate but both descriptions will give you an idea of how divided audiences will be on this one. This reviewer included.

Wallace Bryton (Justin Long) co-hosts a podcast comedy show called the “Not-See Party.” His show leads him to travel to Canada to interview new internet star “The Kill Bill Kid” – a naïve teen who accidentally cut off his leg while swinging around a katana. Upon his arrival to the great white north, »

Tusk Is Probably the Most Talky Movie About a Guy Being Turned Into a Walrus You’ll Ever See

19 September 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Kevin Smith's midnight movie Tusk was apparently inspired by a story told on the podcast Smith hosts with longtime collaborator Scott Mosier, but don't let that fool you: This is clearly the writer-director’s own nightmare about losing his voice. The onetime enfant terrible of Jersey strip-malls made his name with that voice. Smith is a talker, and he makes movies about talkers: In Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma, and Chasing Amy, his characters held the world at bay with nonstop barriers of language, through their joking and riffing and snarking.The protagonist of Tusk is just another variation on those guys, an irritatingly self-absorbed motormouth named Wallace (a mustachioed Justin Long) who hosts a podcast devoted to dumb stuff on the internet with his pal Teddy (an unexpectedly chubby Haley Joel Osment). He travels to Winnipeg to interview a young man dubbed the Kill Bill Kid (à la the real-life »

Music in Film: Wish I Was Here & Guardians Of The Galaxy

19 September 2014 1:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Wish I Was Here, Boyhood and Guardians Of The Galaxy take a mixtape approach to their soundtracks. Ivan looks at what makes them so great...

"You gotta hear this one song. It'll change your life, I swear," a girl (Sam) in a doctor's waiting room once said to a boy (Andrew) who looked a lot like Zach Braff. Then, she placed a pair of headphones over his ears and played him The Shins.

Garden State's soundtrack became a must-have for all fans in 2004 thanks to its effective use - and curation - of indie artists, acoustic ditties and mild electronica. It was an album that showed a jukebox soundtrack (traditionally the territory of Tarantino) could do something different, whether that was introducing people to obscure bands they hadn't heard of or connecting you with others who also liked the movie's music.

10 years later, filmmakers are still chasing the same thing: the ultimate mixtape. »

Tusk

18 September 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Tusk

Directed by: Kevin Smith

Cast: Justin Long, Michael Parks, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Guy Lapointe

Running Time: 1 hr 42 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: September 19, 2014 (Chicago)

Plot: A podcaster (Long) is turned into a walrus when he meets a strange Canadian (Parks).

Who’S It For? Fans of Kevin Smith, and those who wish Quentin Tarantino made more talky Grindhouse movies.

Overall

Just as Tusk was brought into our world, so does the film itself begins with a podcast. Wallace (Justin Long) and Teddy (Haley Joel Osment) are two toking jokesters who have a big following with their Not-See Party podcast, a petty Third Reich pun that stands for their shtick in which Wallace meets eclectic people, and then tells Teddy about his experience on-air. Wallace travels to Canada to meet an internet sensation named “The Kill Bill Kid,” who infamously filmed himself accidentally cutting off his leg while practicing sword moves. »

Tsr Exclusive: ‘The Guest’ Interview with Director Adam Wingard, Writer Simon Barrett, and Actor Dan Stevens

17 September 2014 4:50 PM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

From You’re Next director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett comes The Guest, a wacko action/horror comedy that rocks and rolls like a midnight madness movie, where expectations about pacing and tone are challenged, and good ol’ cinematic chaos reigns. Leading the film is Dan Stevens, formerly of BBC series “Downton Abbey,” who plays a kind ex-soldier named David who shows up one day at the Peterson family’s door, and begins to cozy into their daily lives. However, as the soldier spends more time as visitor, he slowly reveals himself to be a strangely wired individual, whose charm and incredible presence only provides a mask for his true origins.

Along with You’re Next, Wingard & Barrett have also made films like A Horrible Way to Die, and the V/H/S anthology shorts. Both of them also appeared as actors in Joe Swanberg’s post-Drinking Buddies experimental murder mystery 24 Exposures. »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Spotlight on the underrated Michael Parks in ‘Tusk’

17 September 2014 2:27 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Whenever articles are written about the best veteran actors in Hollywood, one particular name is always unjustly excluded. That name? Well, Michael Parks of course. The man has always been a respected character actor in the industry (especially earlier on in his career), but up until the last few years it’s really only been Quentin Tarantino putting him on the proper pedestal. Recently though, filmmaker Kevin Smith has picked up that mantle, highlighting him in both Red State and this week’s new outing Tusk. Smith has done more than his part to get Parks into the spotlight, and man does he deserve it. Parks is likely best known for his role in the show Then Came Bronson, which really put him on the map. Prior to that, he’d been known for a variety of TV movies and his parts in both The Bible: In the Beginning… »

Haley Joel Osment In 1 of 2 New Clips From Kevin Smith's Tusk

16 September 2014 2:57 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In the twenty years since his influential debut feature, Clerks, Kevin Smith has established himself as a singular voice in the American indie landscape with his wry observations of disaffected youth culture. With his 2011 horror film, Red State, and his new film, Tusk, Smith reinvents himself by bringing his comedic chops to a new, disturbing milieu. Wallace (Justin Long) co-hosts a popular podcast with his pal Teddy (Haley Joel Osment), focusing on cruel, mocking cringe humour as part of their mission to keep it “real and raunchy.” After his trip to Winnipeg to interview the “Kill Bill Kid” — a teen whose unfortunate samurai-sword video has gone viral — comes up empty, Wallace decides to make the trip worth his while and find a good story north of the forty-ninth parallel. A handwritten flyer he finds in a bar bathroom leads him to a grizzled old swab (Michael Parks) full »

The Ruination of Horror? A Look at the PG-13 Rating

8 September 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Since the PG-13 rating's inception, it has been the source of much controversy. Is it the big monster in the closet most horror fans fear? Does it ruin our genre and other genres? Honestly, it depends on how it's used, and this video takes a look at that.

Blip.TV has just brought a great examination of the rating online. Probably the most comprehensive examination of this rating ever made. It's entitled Wtf Happened to PG-13?, and you're bound to learn something and be a little enraged at the same time.

For our money a horror film doesn't have to be rated R to be good. Some of the most horrific films out there, including the original Texas Chain Saw Masscare, barely have a single bloody moment.

The Legend of Hell House, Jaws, Poltergeist... I can go on and on. You know when PG-13 fails? When the movie stops being »

Tusk | 2014 Tiff Review

7 September 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Another Tuskegee Experiment: Smith’s Latest Creation Odd But Not Audacious

Sure to garner all the Wtf exclamatory delights that it’s had its grotesque little heart set on since the initial inspiration, Kevin Smith’s podcast borne film project, Tusk, at last arrives with a queasy trill. Though it doesn’t live up to certain perverse levels of strangeness that it promises, it’s a wacky, weird, and fun jaunt, especially considering this was a film that originated off the cuff. Certainly the most successfully entertaining film from Smith in quite some time, it may turn off or underwhelm after the initial bloom passes, especially as it’s narrative is a familiar cobbling of certain well known titles that have attained cultural iconicity (for better or worse). Still, it’s a great piece of weird pie to watch with an audience hungry for its bizarre spoils.

Intense Clip from Kevin Smith's Tusk - "I Don't Want to Die in Canada"

7 September 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The first clip for Kevin Smith's horror film Tusk has been released, and it features an extremely terrified Justin Long. He has been kidnapped by Michael Parks, who wants to turn Long into a bloody walrus. It looks and sounds like this guy is in for the most insane nightmare ever. This is sure to be a very disturbing movie, and I'm always up for watching a disturbing movie.

Review: Kevin Smith's 'Tusk' is more a step forward than a return to form

7 September 2014 2:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are a number of surprises built into Kevin Smith's "Tusk," not the least of which is that it is, all things considered, eminently watchable. That's not faint praise, either. This is in many ways a ridiculous film, and well aware of itself. There are moments where you can practically hear Smith off-camera laughing at not just what's in front of the camera but also what's going to happen in the theater when people watch it. There is a glee to the filmmaking that is matched by a greater sense of control than I've seen from Smith before, and while I think the film is wildly uneven at times, I think that's also the point. I've always said that I grade a film based on how well I think it accomplishes what the filmmaker is trying to do, and in this case, I'd say Smith is fairly on his game. »
