You may not have heard of directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, but you already hate them. At least, you hate what they have created. Date Movie. Epic Movie. Meet The Spartans. Disaster Movie. I could go on, but you may remember what I'm talking about: those broad, lowest common denominator parodies that get Rotten Tomatoes scores that are about as low as their creators' Iq scores. Well, you can get ready for another one: a parody of the Fast & Furious movies. »

The Fast and Furious franchise is getting its own spoof film called Superfast! The movie comes from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer who have made all the Scary Movie films, Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans, Disaster Movie, and Vampires Suck. It's safe to say that this Superfast! movie is guaranteed to end up being a piece of shit.
According to The Wrap, the movie "aims to send up the fast cars, fast women and wooden acting that has made the Fast and Furious franchise one of the most successful in Hollywood history." The movie is set up with K5 International, and here's what the co-founders had to say:
Jason and Aaron will drive audiences crazy with this latest parody. It’s a franchise that’s crying out for some high octane comedy collisions and these are the guys to get a speeding ticket doing it.
These guys have no reverse gear. »

The great thing about the sixth Fast and Furious movie is it doesn’t take itself too seriously. In a way, it’s almost a big-budget spoof of the rest of the franchise, giving fans a bare bones plot filled with the action and excitement they crave. Leave it to the filmmakers behind Date Movie, Epic Movie, Disaster Movie, Vampires [...] »

Chicago – My favorite 80’s sci-fi movie is a hammy flick named “Guyver II” starring David Hayter - the voice of “Solid Snake”, the EA sports “It’s in The Game!” guy, and writer of “X-men: United”. I’m fully aware “Guyver II” was released in 1994, but lets not split hairs, here. That movie was pure 80’s. The style, the action, the plot, the hyper-violent sci-fi that was heavily marketed toward kids- it was, for 12 year old Paul Meekin, 80’s B-movie nirvana.
Video Game Rating: 4.5/5.0
But there’s a Schwarzenegger-sized difference between evoking the essence of an era naturally, and ham-handedly copying the tropes and none of the soul (See the first 20 minutes of “The Great and Powerful Oz”). So it’s refreshing that, without deliberately mentioning it, “Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon” evokes fond memories of “The Terminator”, “G.I Joe”, “Tron”, “Rambo”, and a man-sized dose of “Duke Nukem” to boot, »

Kim, I hope that you’re enjoying your beach vacation with your family in Greece and not paying one bit of attention to Ray J’s new music video for ‘I Hit It First.’ It’s a blatant attempt for stardom and you have more important things to worry about, like your baby on the way and your relationship with Kanye West!
Kim Kardashian — your ex, Ray J, just pulled one of the most infuriating moves ever. It’s one thing to release a song that’s overtly about you that features lines like “She might move on to rappers and ballplayers / But we all know I hit it first,” but he has taken his disrespect even further with the song’s music video. In the video, Ray J rolls around in a bed with a girl who looks just like you, and he knowingly pokes fun at your reality »

It’s been seven years since the Scary Movie franchise was last seen loitering around the multiplex. In that time the spoof genre has been repeatedly molested, with the likes of Stan Helsing, Meet The Spartans »

Yesterday, Scary Movie 5 oozed its way into cinemas and to celebrate… to acknowledge said release, we looked at the Top Five Movie Parodies (now see here) and it was a right laugh.
But today, we don’t just scrape the bottom of the barrel, we kick it over and investigate the turds beneath. For today, we look at The Top Five Worst Movie Parodies. We say five, there’s tons of them here, in fact the Top Three encompasses thirteen films.
This won’t be easy, so I just want to say good luck. And we’re all counting on you.

You may not have heard of this, but I can assure you it’s extraordinary. Nanam is a comedy about parodies, and while it could have been a scathing attack on the slew of awful ‘Movie’ movies (more on them »

Director: Todd Berger Title: It’s A Disaster Starring: Julia Stiles, America Ferrera, David Cross (TV’s ‘Arrested Development’), Rachel Boston (‘The Pill’), Blaise Miller (‘The Scencesters’), Erinn Hayes (TV’s ‘Children’s Hospital’), Jeff Grace (‘Super Zeroes’) and Kevin Brennan (‘The Lake House’) Maintaining the perfect public image, particularly with long-term friends who believe you have the perfect life, is an important goal many people set to maintain. Often times it takes a life altering, catastrophe event that forces people to publicly face the inevitable and admit their mistakes and shortcomings. Struggling to cope with such an sudden and unexpected change is the emotional conflict in the new comedy ‘It’s A Disaster.’ The [ Read More ]

White-House-under-siege thriller "Olympus Has Fallen" debuted this weekend in second place with an estimated $30.5 million, a full $14 million behind the top finisher, new cartoon "The Croods." Nonetheless, it's "Olympus" that looks like the big winner this week, for several reasons: It outperformed expectations. Going into this weekend, pundits predicted that "Olympus" would open at around $21 million. After all, it was playing against last week's surprise hit, still-strong thriller "The Call." Nonetheless, the Antoine Fuqua-directed drama earned excellent word-of-mouth (as measured by an A- grade from CinemaScore). Plus, it bucked a number of prevailing trends, such as... It's the top R-rated action movie opening of the year to date. This year has seen a number of old-school action thrillers fail, including "The Last Stand," "Parker," and "Bullet to the Head." Others have underperformed, including "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" and "A Good Day to Die Hard." "The Call" did better than expected, »

You may know Kim Kardashian as one of E!'s biggest stars, what with Keeping Up With the Kardashians inspiring spinoffs like Kourtney & Kim Take New York and then Miami. But Kim's résumé extends far beyond reality TV: For one, she'll star in Tyler Perry's Temptation! And that's not even her first big-screen role (Disaster Movie, anyone?) Plus, there's tons more reality TV, sitcoms and even music! »
For a movie fan, there aren’t many things that are more depressing than realizing you wasted two hours watching an awful film. No matter the reason why it’s terrible, you can’t ever get the time back and the lingering memories of weak plot lines and wooden acting don’t always leave your head very easily.
One of the only possibly redeeming qualities for an awful movie is humor. Whether it’s completely unintentional in a serious movie or a rare stroke of genius in a failed comedy, these moments of humor can help lessen the pain of watching a terrible movie.
Here’s 10 of the all-time funniest moments from awful movies.
10. Phone Call From Ghostface – Scary Movie
When Scary Movie was released in 2000, it seemed like a fairly novel idea. Make a satire of the slasher genre that makes fun of the seriousness of horror and also uses lots of raunchy humor. »

When Sylvester Stallone announced his newest action film would be called "Bullet to the Head," snarky film fans around the world immediately launched into sarcasm mode, suggesting that the title is what people in the audience would be begging for after watching it. Because, seriously, that title on a Stallone movie? That's just asking to be mocked.
Luckily for Stallone, though, it turns out the movie isn't so bad after all, which is good news for movie buffs but bad news for headline writers everywhere. But while "Bullet to the Head" may have gotten away with an iffy title, not every film is so lucky.
'Broken City' (2013)
You know what they say — if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Unfortunately, despite an all-star cast that included Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones, "Broken City" had plenty of things that needed fixing, beginning with the title.

On a relatively slow weekend at the box office, newcomer Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters easily claimed the top spot with a decent $19.7 million opening. Meanwhile, Parker and Movie 43 had terrible debuts, and as a result the Top 12 was off over 10 percent from the same weekend last year.Hansel and Gretel's $19.7 million start is better than Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter's $16.3 million and The Brothers Grimm's $15.1 million, though it's about even with Grimm in estimated ticket sales. While that's definitely not a great start, it's passable for a $50 million production that's been wasting away on the shelf for the last year. The movie benefited from a clearly articulated premise (it's right there in the title), action-packed commercials, and a lead actor (Jeremy Renner) who has seen his stock go up significantly in the last two years.While Hansel and Gretel has been savaged by critics (15 percent »

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters got off to a modest start on Friday, though that was good enough for first place at the start of a quiet weekend at the box office. Meanwhile, Parker had a poor debut even by star Jason Statham's low standards, while Movie 43 is officially on its way to becoming one of the year's biggest bombs. Hansel and Gretel opened to $6.025 million at 3,372 locations on Friday. That's a bit below last Summer's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter ($6.25 million), but above 2005's The Brothers Grimm ($5.2 million). The audience was 55 percent male and 57 percent were 25 years of age or older, and they awarded the movie a "B" CinemaScore (impressive, considering its Rotten Tomatoes score is currently 14 percent).For the weekend, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters should wind up in first place with between $15 and $17 million. Last weekend's winner Mama fell to second place with an estimated $3.8 million. »

Ah FrightFest how I love thee. Yes, my annual excursion to Scotland for Glasgow FrightFest continues this year, and I couldn’t be happier! This years line-up is strong, Very strong, with plenty of variety and some great film picks by Alan, Ian, Paul and Greg. Plus the appearance of Norwegian drama Hellsfjord! Of all the films showing this year there’s one that I most excited to see – Detention of the Dead… I’ve tried my hardest to cover the film as much as possible over the past year as it looks like my “cup of tea”, so for it to show at FrightFest is awesome (although to be fair I already knew that was in the line-up). However the real big surprise is the appearance of Neil Jordan’s Byzantium in the line-up – the Scottish crowd is notoriously “blood-thirtsy” so I hope Jordan’s film isn’t too sedate for the Glasgow crowd. »
To say that movie fans hate Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg comedies would be the understatement of the year. Actually, it would be the understatement of the decade. Actually, it would be the greatest understatement since the dawn of mankind. In fact if you look up the word understatement in the dictionary there is a picture of Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer and a detailed explanation of how no feasible means of wording known to humans can encapsulate the hate movie fans feel towards these two men. Thus the word understatement received its understanding based on the unfathomable and indescribable hate that is displayed toward Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. Don’t Believe me. Check out some classic quotes films critics and bloggers about the duo.
“Friedberg and Seltzer…are not filmmakers. They are evildoers, charlatans, symbols of Western civilization’s decline…”

Several years ago, spoofs absolutely flooded the mainstream market. Every few months, it was Not Another Teen Movie, Scary Movie, Epic Movie, Date Movie, Disaster Movie and, well, you get the point. While few of them had some pretty good moments of isolated genius, for the most part they were throwaway pieces of shit that should be avoided at all costs.
Despite my venomous dislike for the vast majority of these films, I have to admit that the trailers for the new film A Haunted House caught my interest. Despite being written by Marlon Wayans and looking like it employed the same formula as all of the other spoofs, the subject matter focused on the recent influx of found-footage horror films, and many of »

After weeks of controversy in limited release, Sony’s $40 million Osama Bin Laden assassination film, Zero Dark Thirty, shot into first place with $24.0 million this weekend following five Oscar nominations (though not one for director Kathryn Bigelow) and an expansion from 60 to 2,937 theaters. After four weekends, the well-reviewed drama has earned $29.5 million total, and given its omnipresence during awards season, there’s no telling how high it could ultimately climb. $100 million is certainly not out of the question.
