Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5 Blu-ray Review

7 July 2014 8:40 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The problem with alternative comedy cuts is fairly self-evident: they’re made up of footage deemed less than what was actually released. Thus by their very make-up, they are less funny than whatever original preferred version preceded them.  Bad Grandpa .5 makes a valiant attempt to overcome these short-comings (at least for the first half) by being less a collection of unused footage and more a behind the scenes making of.  Hit the jump for my Bad Grandpa .5 Blu-ray review.  The behind-the-scenes first half tends to be the stronger section of Bg .5. Here – there’s a focus on the beginning of the “sixty-day” shoot with Johnny Knoxville admittedly less-than-enthusiastic in the early going. We watch as Knoxville undergoes the torturous make-up process to become the titular “Bad Grandpa”: Irving Zisman. This is intercut with the various incarnations of Irving over the course of each Jackass film. It’s interesting to »

This Week in Blu-ray / DVD Releases: Nymphomaniac, The Raid 2, Bad Words

7 July 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

This week: Tired of summer blockbusters? Four hours of Lars Von Trier might have you appreciating Transformers more. Also: More Raid and Bad Grandpa. ► So just how much Lars Von Trier can you endure? The combined four hours of Nymphomaniac Vol. 1 & Vol. II will put anyone through the wringer, but it’s particularly miserable if you aren’t partial to the previous two movies in his Depression Trilogy, »

New Blu-ray DVD: 'Bad Grandpa.5,' 'The Raid 2'

7 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Jodorowsky's Dune"

What's It About? Cult filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky's vision for a "Dune" movie was beyond remarkable; it was truly epic. Pink Floyd, H. R. Giger, and Mick Jagger were just a few of the names attached to the film - until it imploded. This is a documentary about a sci-fi film that was ahead of its time and the visionary behind it.

Why We're In: Tons of interviews, behind-the-scenes details, storyboards, and more make this a must-see for art house, midnight movie, and film history fiends.

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

"Point Blank"

What's It About? Lee Marvin and Angie Dickinson star in this cool crime drama about a thief who's out for revenge on the dude who double-crossed him. Mel Gibson's "Payback" was based on the same novel, "The Hunter" by Donald E. Westlake, but that shouldn't deter you. »

Humorous Clip from Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5

4 June 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

There was a ton of prank footage that was shot and not used in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. Paramount Pictures decided not to let it go to waste, so they took a bunch of that footage and turned it into a new film called Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5. Thanks to Comingsoon we have a funny clip from that to share with you. Just so you know, it involves Irving Zisman's balls. The film's star, Johnny Knoxville, had this to say in a statement:

"So many hilarious scenes and pranks didn't make it into Bad Grandpa because they didn't make sense for the story—I'm talking five-star bits that were painful to cut from the movie. You'll get to see them all in Bad Grandpa .5 and maybe some stuff we shouldn't show you. You know how we always joke we have no clue what we're doing? Well, when you see the 'window up, »
