Screen Junkies releases videos called honest trailers each week. Here’s the honest trailer for Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Cuaron is up for a best director Oscar for the film and deservedly so. It’s a pretty great (and terrifying) movie. The honest trailer pretty much makes fun of the whole thing though.… Continue reading Gravity: The Honest Trailer
Director Spike Jonze appeared on BBC’s Newsnight last Friday to talk about his film Her, which is nominated for several Oscars, including best picture. Anchor Emily Maitlis bills the movie, which is about a man who falls in love with his operating system, as being about “falling in love with your software.” Well, that ticked Spike… Continue reading Spike Jonze was Not Amused in this Interview
So they’re making another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. The original was kind of cartoony, even though it wasn’t a cartoon. The new one doesn’t look like it will be that at all. There have been some photos from the set leaked, but this gives us a pretty good idea of what the turtles are… Continue reading Ninja Turtles!

Of course,… Continue reading Ad Agency Remakes American Psycho for Jeans Company
Someone summing up Iron Man and Iron Man 2 shouldn’t be entertaining. This is, though. Extra points for the Nintendo Power Glove.

The innovation combines the physical… Continue reading OmniCorp Introduces Robocop At CES in 2027
Director Michael Bay. What can I say. I think he’s a hack. Transformers? Thanks for ruining my favorite childhood toy for all time. Pearl Harbor? Armageddon? Atrocious movies. The only things you’ve even been involved with that were actually good were Bad Boys and The Rock. So, for some reason Samsung enlisted Michael Bay to… Continue reading Michael Bay Can’t Handle it When the Teleprompter Doesn’t Work
Computer scientist Randy Olson has compiled a list of the deadliest people… in movies. Not surprisingly Arnold Schwarzenegger has the most kills. He’s far and away the leader with 369. There are a lot of other expected names on the list and a couple not so much, like Charlie Sheen and Michael Clarke Duncan. I… Continue reading Arnold Schwarzenegger Has the Most Kills
