It’s Michael Bay’s Benghazi: Director eyes a different kind of terror

I’m trying to rack my brain for a worse possible film project than Michael Bay directing the story of the attack on Benghazi, but after over an hour of imagining, I’m coming up empty. The Hollywood Reporter revealed Wednesday night that the “Transformers” director is in talks to make his next film the story of more »

Fin: The best of Satan, a Nat X suggestion and more sanctioning of buffoonery

Just in time for Halloween: An overview of pop culture’s best Satans. Unforgivably omitted: Pacino in “The Devil’s Advocate” and Jon Lovitz’s “Mr. Mephistopheles,” although the nice-guy gay Satan from South Park is in fact included (iO9) When Chris Rock hosts ‘Saturday Night Live‘ this weekend, all I ask is that two things: That there more »

The James Franco “Room” movie is real, as writers are hired 

It’s looking like we’re going to get not one, but two future movies about “The Room”- both of which will likely expend considerably more professionalism and effort than the production of the actual “The Room.” We already told you about the “Where Are They Now” mockumentary being put together by several of the cult favorite bad more »

DVD Review: Yu-Gi-Oh The Complete Set

If you’ve ever seen an episode of “Yu-Gi-Oh”, then you’ve probably been pretty confused. But when you get behind the whole set–as is done with “Yu-Gi-Oh The Complete Set”, a copy of which our friends out at Cinedigm sent out for review–the whole thing makes much more sense. Sometimes. And provides a fairly exciting experience more »

Much demand seen for Captain Marvel Halloween costumes

There was a lot of rejoicing Tuesday when Marvel announced its roadmap of upcoming movies, which will include a “Captain Marvel” film in July of 2018. At last, there’s going to be a  major, female-focused Marvel film. Also, this being Halloween week, a lot of people came up with the same idea. Especially comic book more »

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Squad’

It’s hard to be original in the horror genre. Between the standard monsters and madmen (or women), the psycho killers and the haunted houses/objects, death can come in only so many memorable ways. Instead, trends are telegraphed and them mimicked ad nauseum, each go-round given a name (“J-Horror,” “Torture Porn,” “Splatter/Slasher,” etc.) that offers scary more »

It’s official: “Furious 7″ is the title

Ever since I decided to live my life a quarter mile at a time and stuff, I have always anxiously awaited the latest installment of the, “Fast and Furious” series to hit the silver screen. It was August of 2001, the last month of innocence before the whole world went to hell, and my buddy more »

Fin: Farewell Boardwalk, wrestling skews older and secrets of the sexy Halloween industry

Loved the ending of Boardwalk Empire. Loved it. And ‘Boardwalk’ stuck the landing so well that it’s going to improve the show’s legacy. Even if the guy playing the Young Nucky Thompson- perfect voice notwithstanding- looked a lot more like Adam Carolla than Steve Buscemi Mindblowing wrestling fact: This past Sunday’s bout between Dean Ambrose more »

Blu-ray Review: ‘Squirm’ (Collector’s Edition)

We’ve had killer shrews and killer cars, killer tomatoes and killer clowns. From demon possessed dogs to equally evil cats, any and all objects and animals have been known to haunt the horror aisle of your local video store (or today, the selections of your favorite streaming service). While most were mindnumbingly awful, a few more »

Spielberg finds the giant for “The BFG” 

Steven Spielberg tends to take a couple of years off and then direct two or three movies in a row, and it looks like that’s his plan for this year and next. Spielberg is about to begin production on “St. James Place,” the Cold War drama that stars Tom Hanks, and his next film after more »

‘Welcome to the Dollhouse’ gets pseudo-sequel starring Greta Gerwig

When it came out in 1995, there was no such thing as a massive media (social or otherwise) outcry over bullying (cyber or otherwise). The notion of kids picking on each other we simply seen as a wrongheaded rite of passage, with no movie more knowing on the subject than Todd Solondz stunning ‘Welcome to more »
