‘Reach for the Sky’ – The 7 Most Badass Movie Cowboys of All Time

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Matt Rodgers

As the DVD and Blu-ray release of Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven rides into your homes, we take a look at those heroes, anti-heroes, and low down dirty scoundrels that would make up our own cinematic posse. Sadly, none of the movie cowboys come from the Mario Van Peebles, ahead of its time, diversity epic, Posse, despite a cast that includes Stephen Baldwin, Billy Zane, and Big Daddy Kane. Alas.

Imagine if Thandie Netwon’s Westworld progressive, Maeve Millay, were to swipe on her generic tablet to the page marked “Host Influences and Templates”, then we’d like to think that amongst the hundreds of profiles garnered from one of Hollywood’s richest genres, The Western, this mostly magnificent seven would make up the first page.

Zombie Film ‘Cooties’ Selected as 2015 Stanley Film Festival’s Opening Movie

Elementary school teachers deal with the occasional little monster, but in the horror film Cooties, an entire faculty faces an army of disobedient, hungry zombie children that are wilder and far more dangerous than any human troublemakers. Starring Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill, and Leigh Whannell, Lionsgate Premiere's Cooties will kick off the 2015 Stanley Film Festival:

Press Release - "April 6, 2015 (Denver, Co) - The Stanley Film Festival, (Sff) produced by the Denver Film Society and presented by NBC Universal's Chiller, announced today that Lionsgate Premiere's Cooties will open the festival on Thursday, April 30, 2015.

From the minds of Leigh Whannell (co-creator of Saw and Insidious) and Ian Brennan (co-creator of Glee), Cooties is a horror comedy with unexpected laughs and unapologetic thrills. When a cafeteria food virus turns elementary school children into little killer savages, a group of misfit teachers must band together to escape the playground carnage.

David Alan Grier, 'Peeples' Star, on Improv, Twitter, and Behaving Himself in Public

Comics aren't always on. Robin Williams and Eddie Murphy probably don't get up in the morning thinking, "I'm funny," no matter how entertaining they may be on TV or in a movie theater. Add to that list David Alan Grier, a comic actor known for his role in the '90s sketch comedy show "In Living Color" (yes, J Lo was one of the dancers), as well as his various movies, time on Broadway, and, more recently, his first book, "Barack Like Me: The Chocolate-Covered Truth." In person, Grier appears much quieter, less zany, and by his own admission these days, "less out there." However, he didn't hold back when it came time to talk to Moviefone about his role in the Tyler Perry-produced comedy "Peeples," in which he stars as Kerry Washington's dad. Grier talked at length about the cast, shenanigans on the set, the invasion of Twitter and Instagram,

The James Clayton Column: Welcome to the punchy title

Feature James Clayton 15 Mar 2013 - 06:38

With Welcome To The Punch's striking title in mind, James offers some more interesting film names for recent hits...

Welcome To The Punch. Boom. That is a brilliant film title. It hits you and it hits you hard. It’s an inviting knuckle sandwich to your conscious awareness and its five syllables sucker punch you and say, “Yeah, now you know me. You are watching this film, sunshine.”

Imprinted indelibly on my memory right from the first mention, how could I not follow it up and discover what mysteries lie behind the bombastic moniker? It immediately impresses me with its shocking violence and promises brutal action, intense energy and all the other sadomasochistic kicks I crave in my cinema trips. Welcome To The Punch speaks directly to my psyche and is sold to my subconscious in only four words.

Getting beyond the gut-busting first impression,

'The Expendables 2' Cast: Who's the Most Badass?

  • NextMovie
What happens when you put the greatest action heroes of all time into one movie? You get the epic explosion of badassery that is "The Expendables 2."

Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and Jean-Claude Van Damme lead this sequel to the successful 2010 action film about a band of hired mercenaries. Although they're one cohesive unit, with so much testosterone gathered in one movie, we couldn't help but pit these actors against each other to see who can really be considered the most badass, based on their fighting style, muscle mass, studliness, weapons expertise and one-liners from their entire filmographies.

Whether they're a martial arts master, a skilled sniper or a bodacious bodybuilder, read on to see who's really the least expendable of "The Expendables 2" cast.

Badass of the Week: Batman

“He’s the most dangerous man in the galaxy“ - Superman, telling some Martians about Batman

A special edition of Badass of the Week by Ben Thompson

Batman is a crime-fighting vigilante ninja detective who dresses up in bullet-proof armor, wears a gigantic black cape, hides in the darkest corners of the city, and then sneak-attack face-kicks the world’s most sadistic criminal douchebags until every felon in the tri-state area is passed out unconscious in a Gotham City Prison complaining about how they’ve got concussions so bad that their brains are leaking out their noses. He’s one of comics’ most beloved, longest-running, and badass superheroes, an ultra-genius master of stealth and hand-to-hand combat, and a man so over-the-top hardcore that the mere mention of his name has been known to cause incontinence among the seedier members of human society.

For starters, Batman is the one of the

The 10 best-to-worst movie vigilante teams

The vigilante has been a mainstay in film for decades. Classic Hollywood westerns bestowed the lone ranger and the gun for hire with a mythic quality.

Recent films such as The Dark Knight and Taken have shown that the popularity of characters operating outside the confines of law and order remains intact. Last year, however, saw the release of several major films concerning a team of vigilantes, or a “vigilanteam” as I like to call them. The Losers (2010), The Expendables (2010) and The A-Team (2010) all portray a cast of characters who have been wronged and are out to get even. In essence these films are ensemble pieces, giving the audience a variation of characters to root for.

In the case of the new vigilanteams, nostalgia seems to be the buzz word. All three films contain a realism-defying sense of action bombast which recalls over-the-top eighties blockbusters. Furthermore, The Expendables and The A-Team

9 'Jackass' Spin-offs We'd Pay to Watch

Spin-offs are inevitable when something in Hollywood becomes successful. While "Jackass" will never be nominated for an Oscar (well, not until the Academy recognizes Achievement in Excrement), the three movies have grossed over $330 million worldwide.

Especially after the hugely successful release of "Jackass 3" (on DVD and Blu-ray today), this franchise is primed for a few movie spin-offs.

Since we haven't heard of any in the works, we took the liberty of devising nine concepts. Please comment below and tell us which one you like best. Hey, if you give us some valuable insight, maybe we'll make you an executive producer when we sell the spin-off. Well, or at least a production assistant.

1. "Badass"

Mario Van Peebles' 2003 film "Baadasssss!" is a tribute to his father's role in helping create the Blaxploitation genre during the '70s. This movie would be the "Jackass" tribute to that era. The entire cast returns
