Film Review: ‘(Dis)Honesty: The Truth About Lies’

Any era is a good one for liars, but folks on every point of the moral or political spectrum are likely to agree: We are living in a fibbers’ renaissance. As Yael Melamede’s documentary notes, various bendings of the truth have among other things recently led us into war, crashed the economy, and allowed potentially catastrophic despoiling of the planet to continue more or less unchecked. “(Dis)Honesty” asks how and why so many people excuse themselves from the gospel truth, whether via everyday white lies or the kinds of escalating whoppers that can (or should) land a stockbroker in prison. There’s no revelatory takeaway here, but this entertaining mix of anecdotal evidence, academic research and current affairs is a diverting survey that should hold appeal for niche buyers in various formats.

That Awkward Moment Red Band Trailer Is Bursting With Testosterone And Awful Jokes

We all know that .red band. means Nsfw, but take note that the F-bombs in this preview are combined with some partial male nudity and a big fake dong, just in case you thought keeping the volume down would keep you safe... For his first film, director Tom Gormican seemingly wanted to see if he could make a movie with only a miniscule amount more masculine charm than Bob Gosse's I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, and judging from the above preview, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies, he has done just that. I've spent most of my life avoiding friendships that only boiled down to .bros looking for pussy,. since those guys tend to be the most boring people imaginable. Somehow That Awkward Moment takes its best actor, Michael B. Jordan, and makes him even more boring than co-stars Miles Teller and Zac Effron by having him not talk

The Generation's Ten Douchiest Films

  • Pajiba
The Social Network: A great movie? Absolutely. My favorite of 2010. But it's basically about white-privileged Ivy League douchebags trying to become filthy-rich douchebags, from Mark Zuckerberg (smug douchebag) to Sean Parker (the Napster douchebag) to the Winkelvoss Twins, who were trying to out douchebag that douchebag Zuckerberg.

The Expendables: I think we can all agree that Steven Seagall and Jean Claude Van Damme movies are douchebag movies, whether enjoyed ironically (hipster douchebag) or straight up (meathead douchebag). The Expendables was just a higher class of douchebag movie with more stars. And if you're ever wondering what the one surefire marker for a douchebag movie is, ask yourself this: Does it feature an Mma star?

The Hangover: It's difficult to really place my finger on why The Hangover is such a douchebag movie, although it probably has a lot to do with Bradley Cooper, who has a certain popped-collar quality about him.

Geoff Stults Signs for ‘Bones’ Spinoff, The Finder

Geoff Stults has grabbed the lead role in ‘The Finder,’ the ‘Bones’ spinoff. According to Deadline Hollywood, Stults will play Walter Sherman, a former member of the military police who has the ability to find anything. The character is based on ‘The Locator’ books by Richard Greener. Michael Clarke Duncan is set to play Stults’ partner. Duncan will play Leo, described as a cowboy philosopher.

Stults played Dan in the film adaptation of I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell. He also starred in the ABC television series Happy Town. He was also Eddie Latekka in October Road. I am curious as to why they chose this actor to play the role of Sherman. I don’t know much about him, but I am sure this is a show that will be heavy on the writing. I love the idea of The Finder but I am not sure this is

Three More Slasher Films Projects Announced!

Along with an adaptation of Steve Niles' Wake the Dead, former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash has announced three more films that have a great chance of falling under his Slasher Films banner. Dig it!

According to Bloody Disgusting "Slash has partnered with Michael Williams and Rob Eric of Scout Productions (Transsiberian, Session 9, The Fog of War, Mr. Death) and is in negotiations to acquire three new feature film packages under the shingle that will produce edgy, contemporary horror films.

The first film to be produced under the new moniker will be Nothing To Fear, a horror/thriller revolving around two young sisters and their family, who accidentally discover one of the seven gateways of Hell in a small town in rural Kansas. Several directors are currently circling the project, which is scheduled to shoot in Louisiana this summer.

Slasher Films is also negotiating to produce Vincenzo Natali's Theorem.

Heart Specialist, The Review | Just Call Him "The Love Doctor"

  • Pajiba
Presumably due to the alleged post-Avatar fame factor of Zoe Saldana, this 2006 movie has just hit selected theaters in the United States. Certainly, there can be no other reason for any distributor (in this case, Freestyle Releasing, who also brought us Dragon Wars, The Collector, and I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell) to invest in what plays like a student film out of Tisch by some spoiled undergrad whose parents unquestioningly paid full tuition just to keep their kid out of their basement. As such, The Heart Specialist appears to be inspired by hospital-based television dramedy, but production values are exceedingly low to the point that this crap would never even make it onto daytime television. While a bare-bones approach isn't unusual for a small-budget labor of love, this movie doesn't even bother with opening titles, so the shift from opening previews to the actual movie is rather

The 'Good' Life

It has been a decade since Matt Czuchry filmed his first substantial role—on "Dawson's Creek's" sudsy summertime spinoff "Young Americans." But that wide-eyed 20-something might have had a hard time recognizing the actor he is today. "Each job really mirrors where you are in your life," Czuchry says. "['Young Americans'] was one of my first jobs after moving to Los Angeles, and it was incredibly exciting because that was the first time I had about five or six episodes in a row. I was doing something that I loved and getting paid for it at a young age." Less than four years after his multiseason arc as wealthy charmer Logan Huntzberger on "Gilmore Girls," the 33-year-old actor has moved on to something decidedly more grown-up: "The Good Wife." As the young, ambitious lawyer Cary Agos—ousted from the law firm Stern, Lockhart & Gardner and playing a pivotal role in the

There's No Such Thing As "The Worst Movie Year Ever"

  • IFC
There's No Such Thing As
In a screed in the Wall Street Journal on Friday entitled "The Worst Movie Year Ever?," Joe Queenan claims that "2010 very possibly is the worst year in the history of motion pictures." It's the type of tiresomely cranky piece that seems to be reliably run at least once a year by some outlet or another, and I'm not going to bother picking apart Queenan's argument or his evidence, because... well, why bother?

These days anyone can cherry pick from a release date calendar and make a solid-seeming case that a cinematic year is either amazing or terrible. Remember 2009, with "Fantastic Mr. Fox," "Up," "The Hurt Locker," "Two Lovers," "Still Walking"? What a great year in movies! Remember 2009, with "Old Dogs," "All About Steve," "I Hate Valentine's Day," "I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell"? What a god-awful year in movies! And one decade's underappreciated gem can be the next's unquestioned

Mixed Martial Arts at the movies

With Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson appearing as B.A. in the A-Team and Randy Couture in The Expendables, Matt looks at other Mma sports stars who have made the jump to films…


Mention the sport of Mma (Mixed Martial Arts) and you'll likely be greeted by blank stares. Most people will, however, respond to hearing it referred to as Ufc (the most popular brand, a bit like referring to your generic brand vacuum cleaner as a Hoover or your generic brand fake-torch sex-toy as a Fleshlight) or cage fighting. But then they'll usually tell you that it's terrible and it should be banned. You don't really watch that, do you?

Such is the stigma attached to Mma. If you're reading this site, you can probably relate to this. Ever get told by people with no idea that comics are for kids or that if you like watching Star Trek then

Nanny McPhee sends Alice to the naughty step at the UK box office

In a fight for family film faces, Emma Thompson's Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang joined previews of How to Train Your Dragon in knocking off Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland from the top UK box office spot

The family face-off

Easter is still a few days away, but the contest for the seasonal family box office is already well under way. Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang opened on more than 500 screens, knocking off Alice in Wonderland from the top spot in its fourth weekend of play. But it was a close-run thing, Nanny's £2.59m comparing with Alice's £2.50m. Both films might have been stronger had they not faced additional competition on Saturday and Sunday from paid previews of DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon.

The Nanny McPhee result compares with an almost-identical opening of £2.60m for the original film in 2005. Given the brand recognition established by the original film,

DVD Playhouse--february 2010

DVD Playhouse—February 2010


Allen Gardner

Hunger (Criterion) Harrowing true story of imprisoned Ira member Bobby Sands (Michael Fassbender) and his 1981 hunger strike protesting the British government’s refusal to recognize him, and other Ira members as political prisoners. Director Steve McQueen delivers the story with true filmmaking panache, mixing startling imagery that blends both stunning beauty and stomach-churning horror. Fassbender is absolutely brilliant in the lead. Not for the faint-of-heart, but not to be missed or, particularly, ignored. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Interviews with McQueen and Fassbender; Short documentary; 1981 episode of BBC series “Panorama” that covers the Ira hunger strike; Trailer. Widescreen. DTS-hd audio on Blu-ray.

Adam (20th Century Fox) Quirky romantic comedy about an eccentric, borderline Asperger’s Syndrome, astronomy buff (Hugh Dancy) who is drawn out of his self-imposed shell by a beautiful and sympathetic neighbor (Rose Byrne). Charming film with engaging performances by the two leads,

Sony Enhriching Our Love Life This Valentines Day

  • GameRant
The day of lovers is almost upon us. Surprise! For most men, this obviously means it’s time to scramble for a Hallmark card and a cheap, plastic rose from the gas station. Forget it, guys; she won’t be impressed. Your plan will fail and you’ll be in the dog house for a week.

Why men are compelled to do this year on year is not entirely clear, but Sony is tackling this issue head-on, by providing gamers with Valentines Day-themed downloads on the PlayStation Store.

Now, Sony isn’t exactly famous for having their finger on the pulse when it comes to marketing and PR. In fact, some could argue that they are the ambassadors of fail when it comes to advertising their own products to their own customers. So when a promotional email from them arrived in our inbox stating, “Watch enchanting romantic comedies, heartfelt dramas

Discuss: What Did The Razzies Miss?

Discuss: What Did The Razzies Miss?
The Razzies traditionally "honor" the very worst that the movies have to offer each year, timed not coincidentally to the day before the Academy Awards celebrate the best films of the year. And every year, you can almost guess which terrible films and actors will be nominated; this year the Michael Bay sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen tied for the lead with Land of the Lost, 2009's most notorious box office bomb. But what, if anything, did the Razzies miss?

Before you haters ask, yes, The Twilight Saga: New Moon earned Robert Pattinson a nod for Worst Supporting Actor in addition to a nomination for Worst Screen Couple of 2009, shared with Kristen Stewart and "Taylor Whatz-His-Fang." (Poor Twilight, such an easy target.) Also up for Razzies are John Travolta for Old Dogs, Eddie Murphy for Imagine That, Megan Fox for the one-two punch of Transformers 2 and Jennifer's Body, and all three Jonas brothers,
