‘Fight Club’: Meat Loaf Reveals How He Helped David Fincher Pick Key Takes During the Directing Process

29 September 2016 2:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Meat Loaf has come a long way since his acting debut in the 1975 classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” He’s appeared in countless films and television shows including “The 51st State,” “Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny,” “Monk,” “Glee,” and “House, M.D,” among others. He’s also a Grammy Award winner and has sold more than 80 million records worldwide – but don’t call him a musician (more on that later).

Speaking with The A.V. Club, Meat Loaf revealed that “Fight Club” was one of his favorite movies that he’s been a part of because David Fincher let him take part in the directing process.

The actor portrayed Robert “Bob” Paulson, a former body builder who due to his excessive use of steroids got testicular cancer, and at times helped the director pick key takes.

5 Disappointing Movies That Deserve a Second Chance

11 May 2016 4:12 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are more than a handful of sequels and franchise movies that came out amongst tons of hype only to fail or disappoint fans that waited far too long to finally see them. Sometimes, its this anticipation that makes a movie seem less than its sum. We, as lovers of pop culture, have spent far too much time cultivated our own ideas about them. In many instances we have years, even decades, to build the movie for ourself inside our brain. So, of course, more often than not...There's going to be a disconnect. We never return to these movies again. Our tainted memories remain firmly in place. But sometimes, its these bloated expectations that devour us, killing any enjoyment or fun we might otherwise have with any given installment of the latest blockbuster. Sometimes, we just take these things too seriously. And a perfectly decent movie gets lost in that 'expectation translation'. »

The Best and Worst of Ben Stiller, A to Z

13 February 2016 7:52 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Ben Stiller's professional onscreen career is officially turning 30 this year — that's roughly 412 in comedian years. In a business where funny people tend to quickly exhaust their limited charm and sink from telling jokes to becoming a punchline, the restless and versatile Stiller has managed to sustain one of the most consistent comic careers this side of Bob Hope. From his days as a bit player to his later emergence as a force of nature in front of the camera and behind the scenes (you have his production company Red »

Movie Review – Goosebumps (2015)

4 February 2016 11:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Goosebumps, 2015.

Directed by Rob Letterman.

Starring Jack Black, Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush, Amy Ryan, Jillian Bell and Ryan Lee

Synopsis:

A teenager teams up with the daughter of young adult horror author R.L. Stine after the writer’s imaginary demons are set free on the town of Greendale, Maryland.

2015/2016 seems like such an odd time to adapt the best-selling book series that really had its heyday 20 years ago. Like The Tom Green Show or Jackass, R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps was a product of its time; horror stories written for children while shows like Tales From the Crypt entertained adults. As such, adapting Goosebumps for the big screen in the 21st Century was never going to be an easy task. The earliest attempt can be traced back to the late-1990s – when the book series was at its most popular – with Tim Burton possibly directing. Obviously, that movie never materialised either, »
