Johnny Depp: The Last Buccaneer

12 November 2012 2:25 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

On a recent summer afternoon, Johnny Depp walks into a luxury suite at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. Oddly, he is dressed like a pirate. A faded paisley do-rag is tied around his head. Smaller strips of cloth are braided into his hair, and he has gold caps on several teeth. His loose white T-shirt, with its blue horizontal stripes, maybe more sailor than pirate, but it's definitely in the nautical family.

We should note that Depp has not come directly from the set of his latest film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest »

Indy 4, Star Wars Ep1 Are Biggest Letdowns

27 August 2012 12:17 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Total Film has taken a poll and assembled a list of the Top 50 most disappointing movies of all time - films for which there was a certain or even considerable amount of expectation and which, frankly, turned out to be fairly terrible.

Practically every household name filmmaker is on this list - Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Stanley Kubrick, Francis Ford Coppola, David Fincher, Oliver Stone, Peter Jackson, Quentin Tarantino, Michael Mann, Steven Soderbergh, Tim Burton, Sam Raimi, the Wachowskis, M. Night Shyamalan, Ridley Scott, Cameron Crowe, Ang Lee, Zack Snyder, Roland Emmerich, Robert Rodriguez, Kevin Smith and many more.

Topping the list was Spielberg's "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" with Lucas' "Star Wars: Episode One - The Phantom Menace" not far behind. Both were returns almost twenty years later to franchises that were the gold standard of many who grew up in the late 70's and 80's, »

Indiana Jones 4 Tops List of Most Disappointing Movies

25 August 2012 3:05 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

TotalFilm magazine put together a list of Top 50 most disappointing movies of all time, taking a look at films that were highly-anticipated, but turned out to be pretty awful. Topping the list is "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," with the magazine stating that it had all the ingredients in place, including Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford. But in the end, the film was nothing more than some CGI, a nuclear fridge moment, and aliens. Also on the list are "Prometheus," "Star Wars: Episode One - The Phantom Menace," "X-Men: The Last Stand" and "Godfather Part 3." Take a look at all fifty choices below and let us know if you agree with the selection. 50. The Tourist (2010) 49. Congo (1995) 48. Shrek The Third (2007) 47. Speed Racer (2008) 46. The Lovely Bones (2009) 45. The Lady In The Water (2006) 44. The Avengers (1998) 43. Ghostbusters 2 (1989) 42. Alexander (2004) 41. Public Enemies (2009) 40. Jennifer's Body (2009) 39.

100 Cheesiest Movie Quotes of All Time - Video Supercut

20 August 2012 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

"I hate to disappoint you, but rubber lips are immune to your charms."

Here's a great ten-minute video supercut that celebrates of some of the greatest cheesy movie quotes of all time. The video originated at pajiba, and it contains some hilarious quotes from several films. I forgot how laughably bad some of these movie's quotes actually were. Here's a note from the creator...

One mans cheese is another mans gold... "cheesy" is a very subjective word and can be used in many different contexts. And there is such a thing as good cheese... a quote can be both epic and cheesy! Also, just because I've included a quote from a movie, it doesn't imply that I think the movie itself is 'cheesy', more the line chosen qualifies... I happen to love a great deal of the films listed here.

Check out the video and let us know what your favorite cheesy movie quote is! »

Lady Gaga Added To Machete Kills, New Poster Debuts

26 July 2012 2:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In today’s “huh?” news story, via a Tweet, director Robert Rodriguez dropped that bizarre nugget that pop megastar Lady Gaga had joined his pulp sequel Machete Kills in the role of “La Chameleon.”

Now, Rodriguez is far from a stranger when it comes to casting atypical character actors and choosing generally odd individuals in his features, but this is certainly new territory. The closest would have to be the casting of Latin artist Enrique Iglesias in Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Even more strange is that apparently not a single person other than the Texas native and those closest to him even knew of Lady Gaga’s (real name Stefani Germanotta) involvement.

Rodriguez Tweeted:

“I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills, she kicked So Much Ass! Holy Smokes. Blown away!”

In the original Machete, the higher profile performers (which in the latter case included Robert De Niro, »

'You do your best work when you're scared'

4 July 2012 4:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

He has played goodies, baddies, creeps and goblins. But Willem Dafoe's latest film posed new challenges. He talks to Steve Rose about his hits, his flops – and the perils of skinning a wallaby

It is a perennial paradox. Studios spend vast sums of money bringing together the efforts of hundreds of skilled technicians, well-drilled actors and extras – yet cinema is often at its most compelling when simply showing an individual silently going about their business. There are countless examples: James Stewart stalking Kim Novak in Vertigo, David Hemmings poring over his prints in Blow-Up, Daniel Day-Lewis scrabbling underground in There Will Be Blood. We tend not to regard "just doing stuff" as acting – but perhaps making it all so absorbing is actually the hallmark of a great actor.

In his new movie The Hunter, released tomorrow, Willem Dafoe does "stuff" very well. His character is searching for the last Tasmanian tiger, »

Robert Rodriguez's Word of Wisdom For New Filmmakers

17 April 2012 3:36 PM, PDT | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

Who best to give advice on breaking into Hollywood than Robert Rodriguez who got his start selling his body to research to fund his film El Mariachi. The Sin City, Machete, and Once Upon A Time in Mexico director spoke as the keynote speaker at a recent event for Latino filmmakers and actors, and offered some words of wisdom. 

The National Association of Latino Producers Association held their annual networking event at Universal City's Sheraton Hotel (L.A.) last weekend and invited industry leaders to speak to thousands of aspiring directors, writers, and actors. While technology has made it easier for filmmakers like Rodriguez to create shorts and film, Rodriguez reinforces the idea that "content is king", he told CineMovie's David Gonzales.   He later added that while there are a lack of Latinos in the media, the main goal

Comcast announced Tuesday the selection of four new minority-owned independent networks with Rodriguez being one of the four selected for new cable channels starting in April.

Salma Hayek Legion of Honor Induction Raises Eyebrows

3 January 2012 4:41 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

There hasn't been much buzz about Marthe Keller's induction into France's Legion of Honor. Or the induction of actresses Dominique Blanc and Anny Duperey. The selection of fellow 2012 Chevalier inductee Salma Hayek, however, has been a whole different matter. In early 2003, the Mexican-born Hayek, 45, was nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award for her performance as Frida Kahlo in Julie Taymor's Frida. Her other film credits include Desperado, From Dusk Til Dawn, After the Sunset, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, and the animated hit Puss in Boots. She is now reportedly working on a biopic of Mexican superstar Maria Félix. But are Puss in Boots and an Oscar nod enough qualification for Legion of Honor "membership"? Hayek's inclusion in this year's Legion of Honor roster (as a Chevalier, or Knight) has been criticized by some who have accused French president Nicolas Sarkozy of using the ceremony »
