The Disaster Artist inspires our list of the top 5 bad cult moviesThe Disaster Artist inspires our list of the top 5 bad cult moviesScott Goodyer11/17/2017 2:30:00 Pm

James Franco's The Disaster Artist is just around the corner. The hilarious comedy is the behind-the-scenes story of the making of the 2003 cult classic movie The Room. Self-funded by the unknown Hollywood wannabe Tommy Wiseau, who also wrote, directed and starred in The Roomit was a major flop but instant cult classic as word of mouth quickly spread on how ridiculously funny this serious drama was.

So what makes The Rooma cult hit? The same elements that elevate other bad movies which suffer from well-intentioned but off-the-mark writing and acting. It's hard to pin down, but we think in this particular case it's Wiseau's oddball personality that makes The Room stand out—and Franco's interpretation of it that makes The Disaster Artist

London played host to The Justice League Experience this week, with the cast and crew on hand for the film’s junket and press conference.

Newsweek Lets Fly at the Trump Administration With ‘Snakes on a Plane’ Cover

Newsweek Lets Fly at the Trump Administration With ‘Snakes on a Plane’ Cover
The latest issue of Newsweek slams the Donald Trump administration as “the most corrupt in U.S. history” with a bold cover referencing the 2006 Samuel L. Jackson film “Snakes on a Plane.” The cover depicts administration officials straddling a “government air” plane as Trump throws cash in the air. The cover story itself, written by Alexander Nazaryan, highlights the expenses of cabinet members using government planes. The story goes on to highlight how the administration’s behavior runs counter to the “drain the swamp” campaign slogan that drew so much praise prior to the election.

Will Avengers 4 Include A Flashback To The First Avengers Movie?

From the moment Taika Waititi signed on to helm Thor: Ragnarok, the New Zealand filmmaker made a point of taking Marvel’s God of Thunder in a totally new direction.

Gone was the drab storytelling and forgettable human characters, while Thor’s luscious locks also received the chop – courtesy of a very heartfelt cameo by Stan Lee, no less. But we’re now learning that Chris Hemsworth’s Norse god may be sporting his long hair once again by the time Avengers 4 rolls around in 2019.

Filming on the Joe and Anthony Russo blockbuster continues in Atlanta, where the pic is rubbing shoulders with Ant-Man and the Wasp and Sony’s Venom spinoff, and YouTube channel Noticias Geek TV (via Screen Rant) recently snuck a peek of what appears to be a long-haired Thor coming face-to-face with Captain America (or Tony Stark, perhaps?).

X-23 spin-off movie, Venom begins production, Michael Bay’s Dora the Explorer movie and more – Daily News Roundup

X-23 Script In The Works

After a stunning performance in this year’s Logan, James Mangold has revealed that the success of Wonder Woman may have opened the doors for an X-23 movie starring Dafne Keen. “Patty [Jenkins]’s success with that film only solidifies more for studios that there’s less to fear with a female protagonist,” said Mangold in an interview with THR. “The more that keeps getting hit home, that ends up giving me more space turning around and going, ‘Well, here we are with a female protagonist. That’s incredible. And what are we going to do with her?’ And that’s where we are with that [the Laura script] right now, dreaming.” Read more here.

Doctor Who, and the casting of soap stars in the show

Mark Harrison Oct 24, 2017

As Doctor Who series 11 adds a trio of soap opera stars to its cast. And it makes sense...

What do Mandip Gill, Tosin Cole and Bradley Walsh have in common? Other than the fact that they're all joining Jodie Whittaker's Doctor as part of the regular cast of Doctor Who's next series, they've all acted in soap operas. Even 12 years since the show was revived by a former Coronation Street writer, that still makes some fans nervous.

Whatever your thoughts on Corrie, EastEnders and other serial dramas (to give them their proper name – the nickname comes from an outdated observation about soap companies sponsoring many of them), they're the best, most relevant training ground for young actors in British television. It's also more relevant to the experience of working on Doctor Who than you might necessarily expect.

We won't go so far as Doctor Who

‘Snake Outta Compton’: A Massive Mutated Snake Terrorizes a Rising Rap Crew in Insane New Trailer — Watch

‘Snake Outta Compton’: A Massive Mutated Snake Terrorizes a Rising Rap Crew in Insane New Trailer — Watch
You can practically hear the pitch meeting roaring off the screen: “It’s ‘Snakes on a Plane’ meets ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ with a generous dash of ‘Sharknado,’ just for added bite!” Such is the premise and tone of Hank Braxtan’s upcoming “Snake Outta Compton.” From the looks of its first trailer, it appears that that comedy is going to deliver on that promise, no matter if it was a good idea or not.

The film follows a scrappy young rap group on the verge of making it — they’re just days away from signing a major record deal, presumably one that will rocket them into the big time — who unexpectedly run afoul of another Compton resident: a massive mutated snake who will not stop growing after a homespun experiment gone totally awry, and apparently has quite a bad attitude to boot. If you’re going to make a massive mutated snake,

Snake Outta Compton Trailer: The Best or Worst Movie of 2018?

Snake Outta Compton Trailer: The Best or Worst Movie of 2018?
Snake Outta Compton is a real thing. And there's no way you can stop it! Did you ever wonder what it might be like if someone made a really low-budget sci-fi movie that essentially combines Snakes on a Plane with Straight Outta Compton, with a little bit of Anaconda thrown in there for good measure? Probably not. And with good reason. But if you're that one person who has thought of such a thing, you're in luck, because, for some reason, someone has done exactly that. We present to you the first trailer for Snake Outta Compton. Don't worry, there's a poster too.

There are near countless direct-to-video, low-budget bad movies released on a yearly basis. But every once in awhile, something like Snake Outta Compton comes along that simply can't be ignored. This trailer has so much going on and none of it seems to go together, but damned

Snake Outta Compton is, yes, a real movie

  • JoBlo
Listen, I know I'm playing right into the filmmaker's hands here. I doubt Snake Outta Compton will be that great (or even bad-great, like Birdemic or 1313: Cougar Cult), and will probably just be a lame, cheaply-made B-movie that's too calculated to be batshit insane, and too competent to be a cult classic, ala Snakes On A Plane. But, goddammit, it's a slow news day and the pun... Read More...

Review: The Killing of a Sacred Deer

This is a Pure Movies review of The Killing of a Sacred Deer, directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and starring Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Alicia Silverstone, Raffey Cassidy, Barry Keoghan and Rachael Mcadams. Yorgos Lanthimos is the arthouse equivalent of a high concept filmmaker. His best known films, in particular, can be described in a single sentence, be it ‘parents keep kids isolated from the outside world via a manufactured reality’ or ‘dystopian future sees single people turned into an animal of their choice’. What separates them from the likes of, say, Die Hard or (god forbid) Snakes on a Plane, though, is that as succinct as their premises may be, their executions open up a world of uneasy implications. You leave a Lanthimos joint not entirely sure what to make of what you just saw, but certain that it has affected you in a way that will haunt you for a long time.

Nicolas Cage to do battle with wild animals in his next film

Nick Harley Sep 13, 2017

Nicolas Cage will rage as a big game hunter stuck on a ship with his prey in action film Primal.

Snakes on a plane? How about Cage on a rage….on a boat? Okay, admittedly not as catchy, but I’m sure some marketing executive is already hard at work on a memorable tagline for Nicolas Cage’s new film, Primal.

In Primal, Cage will play a big-game hunter working on behalf of a zoo. He must survive on a Greek freightliner after his haul of dangerous, exotic wild animals is set free by an escaped political assassin, aboard the ship to be extradited to the U.S. The animals, including a rare White Panther, wreak havoc, chaos ensues.

Picturing Nic Cage deliver animal-based puns while putting down attacking jungle beasts sounds like the best/worst movie ever. We couldn’t be more excited. Nick Powell, a

‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’ Review

Stars: Samuel L. Jackson, Ryan Reynolds, Elodie Yung, Salma Hayek, Gary Oldman, Richard E. Grant, Rod Hallett | Written by Tom O’Connor | Directed by Patrick Hughes

Professional hitman Darius Kinkaid (Jackson) and executive bodyguard Michael Bryce (Reynolds) have both been around a long time. So when Kinkaid is coerced by the government into testifying against a foreign dictator, he’s dropped into the hands of a reluctant Bryce, who wisely wants nothing to do with the man. Movies being movies, this means that the pair should expect to be spending a lot of time together in the imminent future: from England to the Netherlands, in fact.

Likewise, stars Jackson and Reynolds have both been around awhile too, and they easily slip into their respective roles. The Hitman’s Bodyguard is essentially “Samuel L. Jackson Says Motherfucker: The Movie”, playing off the actor’s usual sweary persona even more than his Snakes on a Plane.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard Review

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Scott Davis

For anyone that loved Cannon Films in the 1980’s and their shlocky, grotesque but strangely enjoyable fare, Millennium Films are still flying the Golan-Globus flag some three decades later. Many of those who worked for the charismatic Israeli cousins during that manic few years through such “classics” as Invasion USA, Missing in Action, Lifeforce and Over The Top, are now part of Millennium and while a lot of their properties share much of its DNA, there’s an air of quality control with the new gang.

Their latest 21st-century Cannon-esque outing is The Hitman’s Bodyguard, another run-of-the-mill action-comedy that has all the hallmarks of being a little bit of a stinker from the off. But it’s with great joy that we can shake off those fears and proclaim the film one of the year’s most ridiculous but unabashedly delightful romps with two stars at the top of their powers.

Watch Samuel L. Jackson Hilariously Destroy James Corden in Epic 'Drop the Mic' Rap Battle

Watch Samuel L. Jackson Hilariously Destroy James Corden in Epic 'Drop the Mic' Rap Battle
Samuel L. Jackson is not a man to be messed with.

The legendary actor stopped by the Late Late Show to battle host James Corden in one of his famous “Drop the Mic” rap battles, where he schooled the British host on comebacks and jibes.

Corden started strong, rapping that he was there to prove the “‘L’ in Samuel L. Jackson stands for loser” and mocking Jackson’s Nick Fury character in the Avengers series, telling him “the only time you get applause is when you show up after credits.”

While it was a solid start, Jackson came out guns blazing on his first verse.

Spoiler alert: Don’t challenge Nicky Fury to a rap battle. Samuel L. Jackson took on James Corden on Monday night during The Late Late Show’s “Drop the Mic” battle, and the seasoned actor didn’t hold back.

The British host, 38, started off strong, declaring, “It’s another ‘Drop the Mic’ where I end up an abuser to prove the ‘L’ in Samuel L. Jackson stands for loser… He’s the highest grossing actor, that’s a fact. That’s how he buys all those damn Kangol hats.”
