5 Movies That Make Your Family Seem Normal

Published by under Lists,Movies

txs

Chances are, your family isn’t that normal. I only say this because no one has a normal family. The Brady Bunch ideal is all but dead in America, and pretty much everyone has one slightly creepy or always drunk uncle. Sometimes you may look around at your family and think to yourself you landed in the strangest, most dysfunctional pod of people on Earth. Honestly, there is truth to that and exaggeration in that. The truth is, dysfunctional is the new normal, and these five movies will prove to you just how far from abnormal your family really is. So the next time you are thinking to yourself how insane your family is, watch any of these five movies and you will realize you actually have it pretty good. Your family is probably normal by comparison. Continue Reading »

This Week In Movie Trailers!

Published by under Lists,Movies

trailers-feature

Well, if you ask me this was quite the slow week for movie trailers. Maybe that is due largely in part to the fact that all the films coming out this coming weekend are 45% or less on the RT scale …? Production companies know when other movies suck and don’t want to attach what might be a seemingly great trailer to something no one is going to see.

Let’s do this.

5 Movies That Begin At The Ending

Published by under Movies,Television

UN

Some twist endings are satisfying, and some aren’t.  But some make you want to watch the whole movie over again with a new perspective.

Finding out that, “Luke, I am your father!” is a pretty cool twist.  It’s become such a huge part of the zeitgeist that it’s hard to remember that when you watched Star Wars for the first time at age 11, that moment blew your freaking mind.  But as cool as it was, it’s not something that immediately makes you reconsider everything you’ve watched up to that point.  It’s not something that makes you want to stop the movie, rewind it, and begin again at the beginning.

Here are 10 movies that don’t truly start until the twist is revealed and your perceptions are shattered, movies that almost demand a rewatch.

Why Haven’t You Seen It: I Melt With You

Published by under Columns,Movies

melt

I am going to start this article by saying you have to be a somewhat older guy who has made a myriad of poor life choices to really enjoy this movie. That is not totally true, but boy, does it help. You also have to be, um, prepared to walk away from it a little messed up. I Melt With You is a story about old friends drifting apart and growing into adults they swore they would never be when they were kids. This is the sequel to Stand By Me you never wanted, but never knew you needed. It is about how scary failures can be, and how strong a promise can remain between people who love each other, even decades later. Oh, and it might be one of the most depressing movies I have ever seen. But I am not like most people. That didn’t make it a “bad” film to me. Quite the opposite, really. In some sad and scary ways, I related to these guys.

Five Underrated Van Damme Kick Flicks

Published by under Lists,Movies

vd-header   

America might be feeling a bit hostile towards Belgium after they knocked us out of the World Cup, but never forget that besides waffles, fries, and damn good beer, they also offer one of America’s highest-demand imports: graceful, fully-extended flying kicks to the face.

Since appearing as an extra in the 1984 flop exploitation film, Breakin’, Jean-Calude Van Damme has been serving up heaping helpings of heels right to bad guys’ domes with elegant precision. He caught his big break with Bloodsport, and he had everyone thinking he would soon be the next Schwarzenegger.

However, after a string of literally kickass 90s action titles, he had a bright career ruined by the a stinking mound of feces so bountiful that it would impress even Jeff Goldblum. Street Fighter left such a bad taste in everyone’s mouth that it was rushed out of box offices after two weekends and even caused Raul Julia to give up his acting career. Yes, that was a tasteless joke.

But was Van Damme really that unmarketable? Was it fair for studios to give up on him whenever they continued to let Keanu Reeves look confused in front of the camera? Is JCVD’s only current marketable skill doing splits on Volvo semi-trucks? I think not, and here’s five movies to justify why… Continue Reading »

Dawn of the Apes Concept Art

Published by under Images,Movies

tumblr_n8q94wpXAk1qg8i80o1_1280

What’s that? The movie is “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” you say? Yeah, I know, but like Rise of the Apes before it, I refuse to address a movie with a title that has more than one “of the” in it. Really, we couldn’t have figured out “Rise of the Apes” was tied to Planet of the Apes if “Planet of the” wasn’t specifically in there? Sigh.

Anyway, this is some rather cool concept art from the new film by Jerad Marantz. In it, we see that once upon a time, the idea was to have the apes start to actually wear clothing to become more and more human-like. That obviously didn’t translate to the final film, as the apes wore nothing past warpaint, but I have to imagine that in the inevitable third film, they might start wearing clothes to hide their ape-shame.

Debate of the Day: Dawn of Justice

Published by under Comics,Images,Movies

Christ, I still can’t get over how awful that Batman vs. Superman subtitle is.

Well, at this point we know that the movie is going to be a very, very obvious set-up for a future JLA movie, though how many sub-movies we’ll see before then is anyone’s guess, a-la-The Avengers. Marvel did…four official canon universe movies before Avengers, right? Two Iron Mans, CapAm and Thor? If Man of Steel is technically the first, then BvS is second, it would be a bit quick to go straight to JLA in my eyes.

We already know that Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) will show up in some form in the new film, and so will Aquaman (Khal Drogo), but will they get their own movies before DC/Warner Bros. goes full JLA?

And also, this awesome art is from Tyler Champion.

It Should Be A Movie By Now: Voltron

Published by under Movies,Television

voltron-header

Are you a child of the 80′s? If you are then welcome to another loving flashback brought to you by yours truly. Voltron was one of those cartoons that I didn’t see when it started because I would’ve been 2 – I know, slacker. Well it was definitely one that I got into a few years later. One that even now I find myself asking, why haven’t we had the pleasure of watching Voltron slash through his enemies on the silver screen yet?

Wingardium Levioh-no…

I have a hard time believing half the awful tattoos I see on the internet on a nearly daily basis are real, but something deep inside me says that yes, someone did actually think it would be cool to combine their love of ICP with Harry Potter.

And so…this was born.

The “Muggalo” tattoo imagines what it might look like if Harry Potter was a Juggalo, though the pun doesn’t even work because Muggles are non-magical folk and Potter certainly isn’t one of them. Though perhaps I’m overestimating the mental faculties of someone who would choose to get this permanently etched on their body in the first place.

Guardians of the Galaxy Invade Everywhere

Published by under Images,Movies

What’s that? A double dose of artist Rick Cellis today? We just saw his Disney Gotham villains earlier, but it’s time to turn to another Disney property, Guardians of the Galaxy. Here, he’s combined the characters with a wide spectrum of pop culture, including recent hit teen books, Ziggy Stardust, The Lion King, and more.

This guy is seriously fantastic, and deserves more than 600 Instagram followers, so check out his other work there. More GotG stuff below. Continue Reading »

Disney Characters as Gotham Characters

Published by under Comics,Images,Movies

Time for yet another Disney mash-up, this time from artist Rick Cellis, who has expertly combined a number of Disney characters with staples of Gotham, but good and evil. Elsa/Freeze is an obvious pairing, but I like Ariel/Oracle quite a bit.

I’m not sure who Catwoman is in the Disney realm if I’m being honest, as it is a bit tricky to figure out identities when 95% of you is covered in catsuit. But my favorite of all is probably the last one. Check it out below: Continue Reading »
