Avengers: AOU photo

SNL proves Thor is the best Avenger

The first Avengers was a ground breaking comic book film in two ways. First, it capitalized on several years of buildup, and secondly, it was the first one to show the aftermath of the big battle. But will Avengers: Age of Ultron top this?...

The Star Trek films have a lot of lens flares

According to these videos from editor Dylan Browne, there are quite a few lens flares in the first two Star Trek films. Around 1500 of them apparently. In other Star Trek news, Simon Pegg is co-writing the third film with Doug Jung (Dark B...

Stephen Colbert defends Force Awakens' hilarious lightsaber

Did you check out that Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser yet? Then you're one of the many people who looked at that lightsaber and went "huh." Whether or not that was a positive "huh" doesn't matter as loads of folks have chimed in on th...

 
 
 
Godzilla  photo

Godzilla was only in Godzilla less than ten minutes

One of the primary complaints most folks have with the latest Godzilla film was that the big lug wasn't around enough (yet it earned enough at the box office to earn a kick ass sequel). That's a fine complaint, but my issue was with the sc...

 
 
 
The Interview photo

Watch this 20 minute MTV special for The Interview

Just as how MTV once had a cool promotion for This is the End last year, this year they're working with Sony to promote Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's The Interview. I'm pretty excited for it, North Korea seems less excited, but now that w...

 
 
BUSSSSS photo

Lots of people get hit by buses in movies

Thanks to this supercut done by hh1edits, I've realized lots of people get hit by vehicles in movies. Sometimes it's a joke, sometimes it's serious, and other times it's jarring. So...yeah. Look both ways before you cross the street in mov...

Jurassic Park could've used more dogs

A guy inserted his bulldog Wally into a Jurassic Park scene and now I can't stop thinking about how much better "Jurassic Bark" would've been. [via alienufosarereal]

Woman divorcing her husband over Frozen

If Elsa's journey in Frozen has taught anyone anything, it's to "let go" of the bad things. In Japan, a woman has done just that. A man says his wife has moved in with her parents and refuses to talk to him because he doesn't care for Froze...

H. Jon Benjamin voiced HAL 9000 and it's the best thing

As part of the late night show, Last Night Basement, H. Jon Benjamin (Bob's Burgers, Archer, other good things) dubbed over a bit of HAL 9000's (from 2001: A Space Odyssey)  voice. Turns out it's something I've wanted all along. ...

Rogue gets to be in X-Men: Days of Future Past after all

With the seemingly endless amount of big name stars and characters in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, it's hard not to believe some of those characters would be left on the cutting room floor. One of those characters was Anna ...

 
 
Godzilla Commercial photo

Why wait for the Oscars when Godzilla is in a Snickers ad?

I don't know how this marvel of marketing came to be, but I don't care. Because the awesomely looking Godzilla reboot (Did you see that trailer, son?) hits theaters in May, Snickers is now running an ad campaign featuring everyone's favori...

Here's an awesomely adorable LEGO Movie blooper reel

It's been a week now since I've seen The LEGO Movie (and reviewed it!), and I still can't get it out of my head. Everything is still awesome, I want a double decker couch, and my friends and I have been quoting Lego Batman lines back and f...

Nick Cannon developing Drumline sequel for VH1

Unbeknownst to me, 2002's Drumline, a film about a college marching band starring Nick Cannon, has a huge following. In fact, when this news hit our tip line, a good amount of our own editors perked up and shouted their love of the film fro...

Louis C.K. finishes American Hustle's ice fishing story

For those of you who have seen David O. Russell's American Hustle, you know how great of a job Louis C.K. does in the film. Apparently his entire role (Bradley Cooper's boss) is adlibbed as his character was only supposed to say a few line...

 
 
Wolf of F**k Street photo

The Wolf of Wall Street has a lot of "F**k" in it

One of the more notable aspects of The Wolf of Wall Street is its explosive profanity. It's used so often, and in such great amounts, I eventually had to use the word in my review for the film. But in a brilliant way, the word (like every o...

Rogen and Franco recreated Kanye West's "Bound 2"

On the set of Seth Rogen's directorial follow up to This is the End, The Interview (featuring Rogen and James Franco as a TV personality and producer who are roped into helping assassinate the prime minister of North Korea), James Franco a...

Channing Tatum does a split for 22 Jump Street

Jean Claude Van Damme once did an ad for Volvo which featured him doing an "epic split" like the mad god he is. On the sett of 22 Jump Street, releasing June 2014, Channing Tatum decided to do a parody of that ad for some reason.  I w...

Woody Harrelson is just a treasure

Did you know that Liam Hemsorth (Gale in The Hunger Games) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor in Thor: The Dark World) were brothers? Then you already know more information than a terribly dazed and confused Woody Harrelson. In an interview with CB...

Thor: The Dark World poster in Shanghai gets it right

One of the smaller things I noted in my review of Thor: The Dark World is the terribly wooden Natalie Portman. I guess that might stem from Portman and Hemsworth's lack of chemistry? Either way, it just makes sense that a photoshopped Dark ...

SNL's Wes Anderson parody is pure brilliance

The only thing wrong with this brilliant Wes Anderson parody is its lack of Bill Murray. Other than that, it looks exactly like an Anderson film. The music is perfect, the shots are perfect, Edward Norton's Owen Wilson is perfect...ahhhh, ...

Vanilla Ice wants a part in Bay's Ninja Turtles reboot

Back when Michael Bay first announced that he was rebooting the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films, Vanilla Ice coyly hinted that he was involved with the film while showing off his sick ass tattoo that was totally done while sober. Well, i...

 
 
Hercules Trailer photo

Trailer for Hercules: The Legend Begins has already lost

For those of you that didn't know, there are currently two competing Hercules films. One, Hercules: The Thracian Wars, stars Dwayne Johnson and he looks amazing in the role. Second is Hercules: The Legend Begins starring Kellan Lutz (whose...

Sandra Bullock is so over horrible sequels

Assuming after Gravity's mind blowing success that my boo Sandra Bullock gets the respect she deserves, Bullock will no longer have the time to degrade herself with cheap comedies and their even cheaper sequels. A sequel to The Heat (one of...

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 gets an official title

The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise sure has had its ups and downs (more downs recently), but regardless of how we all may feel, it's going to keep on chugging. The fifth film in the franchise has been in production for awhile (announced...

Flix for Short: Adult Wolf

Adult Wolf is the sequel that Teen Wolf never got (and no we're not counting Teen Wolf Too because c'mon) "starring" Jack Black and Kyle Gass, otherwise known as Tenacious D. You want your movie to be spectacular? All you need is more Tena...

Susan Boyle's getting a biopic

Is Susan Boyle Benedict Cumberbatch's mom?* If so, I'm sure he's very proud because she's getting a movie made about her life. Fox Searchlight has purchased her life rights (that will always be a weird grouping of words to read/hear/th...

Red Letter Media hits every plothole in Prometheus

This should go without saying, but: SPOILERS. Prometheus is a film that raises a lot of questions. Sometimes it means to raise them and other times not so much. It's definitely philosphical in many ways, and often those kind of questi...

Fake Hunger Games posters are funny and biting

These fake Public Service Announcement posters for the ballooning Hunger Games give the citizens of Capitol a lot of much needed advice, such as "Spay & Neuter Your Muttations" and "Stand Up to Bullies - Then Kill Them". The posters wer...

David Fincher discusses Oscar chances, "too much anal"

When a director can be self-aware and laugh about it, it's a beautiful thing. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo director/generally awesome guy David Fincher has pin-pointed why exactly he thinks they won't win an Oscar at the next Academy Awa...
