The 9 Most Hilarious Translations of Famous Movie Titles

Published by under Best of the Web

Some filmmakers spend literally years trying to think of a movie title that will strike the right balance between “this doesn’t sound completely stupid” and “this will make me filthy rich.” It may not always look like it, but there’s a lot of effort, a lot of money, and a lot of hard drinking behind even the simplest of movie titles … all of which goes out the window once that movie ships overseas and needs to make sense in another language.

Check out these 9 funny translations of famous movie titles.

Are you ready to start feeling old?  Nothing makes you feel older than the realization that your favorite movies are nearly 20 years old.  It reminds you that you haven’t been in high school in over 20 years.  Well, it reminds me of that so yeah, I’m kind of sad right now.  Here are 20 movies that are going to make you say, “wait a second, that movie came out in 1995?”  The answer is sadly…yes.

How Home Alone Would be Different if it were Made Now

Published by under Movies

home_alone_01

Clearly the world is a much different place than in the 90s, which is when Home Alone first hit the scene.  Let’s just say that the majority of this movie wouldn’t even be possible today.   How in the hell would they film a flick like that now?  I mean think about the airport scenes.  Nope.  Gone.  Ain’t gonna happen.  The police department?  A kid by himself checking out groceries?  You get the picture….

The 5 Most Entertaining Christmas Horror Films

Published by under Lists,Movies

Gremlins v 3

One thing that I never really understood was why Hollywood is so obsessed with making Christmas scary.  Don’t get me wrong; I love Christmas almost as much as I love horror movies.  I love it when a movie throws two completely unrelated ideas together just to see what happens.  I even support studios releasing horror movies in the “off-season” in order to appeal to the non-Four Christmases crowd.

What I don’t understand is why filmmakers continue to try to make Christmas, as a concept, frightening – because it’s not.  Santa’s a jolly old fat man whose physique doesn’t lend itself to slaughter.  Elves are, at best, unnerving and, at worst, a slightly more malevolent than Alvin and the Chipmunks.  Don’t even get me started on snowmen.

Since I dove into the sci-fi side of the yuletide last week, I thought that I would do the same with Christmas’ colorful foray into the horrific.  While I can’t possibly justify referring to many of these as the best of anything, they’re at least that special kind of entertaining where it’s obvious that the filmmakers didn’t quite think their movie through as thoroughly as they probably should have.

The Slow Burn of BoJack Horseman’s First Season

Published by under Best of the Web

todd-bojack

At first, BoJack Horseman is a fairly simplistic, consistently clever little satire of Hollywood superficiality, a familiar story told through the lens of the absurd world it was set in. BoJack, a former 1990s sitcom actor (on the long-running, thoroughly mediocre Horsin’ Around) and current washout, partied and philandered around his mansion and LA, consistently surrounded by reminders of who he once was; from “Chapter One” to the season’s seventh episode “Say Anything”, BoJack is a series of well-trodden stories about a horse-man’s mid-life crisis as he tries to explore the most successful (and darkest) periods of his life with the ghost writer of his memoir, Diane (a woman he’s slowly falling in love with, as well).

Find out more about the slow burn of BoJack Horseman.

The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies Infographic or Should we Say Battlegraphic

Published by under Movies

the_hobbit_the_battle_of_the_five_armies-wide

Via Shirts.com: It all began with the words, “In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit.” The Hobbit trilogy is coming to an end this year with the final film, The Battle of the Five Armies, and we got to thinking…just how does one have a battle with five armies anyway? That sounds confusing! We explored the words of J.R.R. Tolkien himself and used them to create this interactive battle map and companion infographic. They’ll give you a detailed play-by-play of the final chapter in this epic fantasy!

A couple of final notes before we get into the good stuff. First: All of the animation, information, and battle movements in this piece are derived from the novel’s version of events, not the film’s. Next: We’ve left out some minor details for the sake of brevity – Tolkien may be many things, but brief he is not. Finally: This post contains MASSIVE SPOILERS for The Battle of the Five Armies, which is based on a book that is 77 years old.

5 Movie Series That Started Terrible and Ended Up Awesome

Published by under Best of the Web

352614_v1

As tough as it is to create worthy sequels to great cinema, it’s nearly impossible to take a terrible movie and, while staying in the same franchise, improve upon it. Many movie plots deal with an underdog story, but that’s difficult to pull off in real life when the first film is a narrative at the height of its power and later films feature ideas like taking Jason to Manhattan or are called Batman Forever.

The following are rare examples of series that would eventually turn great but that started off as pathetic experiments in seeing what happens when you give inept people cameras and tell them, “It’s cool.”

Lord of the Rings Let it Go Parody is Worth a Peek

Published by under Videos

At this point you may be sick of all the Frozen parody videos out there but we’re not. Anything that makes fun of “Let it Go” is worth a shot in our book. This video for example, is a strangely appropriate Lord of the Ring-themed parody of “Let it Go” by the folks over at The Hillywood Show.
