5 Disappointing Movies That Deserve a Second Chance

15 November 2013 10:33 AM, PST | 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'. »

Jack Black and Tim Robbins to Star in Jay Roach’s HBO Comedy Pilot The Brink

14 November 2013 10:04 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Jack Black and Tim Robbins are heading to television.  THR reports that the duo will lead a half-hour dark comedy pilot for HBO called The Brink, which is being produced by Meet the Parents and Austin Powers director Jay Roach.  The series focuses on “a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men,” with Robbins playing the U.S. Secretary of State and Black playing a foreign service officer who is reluctantly caught on the ground.  The third role of a Navy fighter pilot has yet to be cast.  Roach has a history with HBO as of late on the more dramatic side of things, as he directed the impressive political features Recount and Game Change. Weeds alum Roberto Benabib is writing the pilot script alongside his brother Kim Benabib while Roach will direct.  Black and Robbins, who both appeared in Anchorman and Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny, »

The James Clayton Column: Metallica at the movies

Feature James Clayton 4 Oct 2013 - 06:14

James is off to never never-land, as he considers Metallica: Through The Never and the band's appearances in the movies...

A Metallica movie? Oh yeah? Say f*ck yeah, James! I'm there and I'm throwing up heavy metal horns and headbanging like a maniac. Unfortunately, trying to watch a film and simultaneously make moshpit movements is a tricky feat to pull off.

It raises a distressing dilemma: "to rock out or not to rock out?" It's a little like those moments where you're enjoying a musical and can't resist singing along, except with the Headbanger Hamlet question, there's little chance of you being able to follow what's happening on screen.

You can't properly appreciate, say, the cinematography and nuanced depth of the acting performances with blurred vision and flailing hair in your eyes. Also, as unfortunate possible side effects, you can end up »

12 Trippy Freak Out Film Scenes That Will Melt Your Mind

2 August 2013 3:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Drugs are bad. Everybody knows that. They ruin lives, strike at the very heart of society and, worst of all, give rise to that most tedious of movie genres, the stoner comedy. But c’mon, who doesn’t love a good, old fashioned freak out?

Not only does it often provide a film’s funniest, finest or most frightening moment, but, rather like a dream sequence, a freak out gives the director the perfect excuse to throw in all kinds of crazy stuff that would otherwise look out of place. It also guarantees repeat viewing from, shall we say, an appreciative cult audience.

Listed below, for your sweet delectation, are twelve of the most surreal drug scenes ever captured on screen. And remember, they’re getting tweaked off their gourd so that you don’t have to.
