Review: 'Killers' Captivates - And Then Some

Review: 'Killers' Captivates - And Then Some
In the world of cinema serial killers have frankly been done to death. Good (see Vincent D’Onofrio in "The Cell!"), bad (Sean Bean sucked ass in "The Hitcher" remake!) and ugly (Robert Englund in "A Nightmare on Elm Street" is the scarred face of the genre!), it’s hard to believe there’s anything left of note to say about such a dark subject that has been done to death. But the stylistic, clever and altogether riveting new five-star film "Killers" from the famed Mo Brothers manages through its story examination of good vs. evil to bring something completely compelling to a familiar subjec...

Will Ferrell Nails Cheerleader In The Face With A Basketball

Will Ferrell Nails Cheerleader In The Face With A Basketball (Wa
...For a movie, we should add. "Will Ferrell Nails Cheerleader in the Face With a Basketball..." for a movie.

But movie or not, the "Anchorman" star has still given one unlucky cheerleader a (probably) pretty sizable basketball-dimpled face bruise.

Ferrell's been filming his latest movie, "Daddy's Home," which recently included a trip to New Orleans' Smoothie King Center, for a surprise appearance in a Pelicans/Lakers game.

At halftime, Ferrell wandered onto the court to shoot a couple half-court shots- one of which, of course, is the fateful ball that slammed into so much cheerleader fa...

Fake Baby Is Latest Controversy Over 'American Sniper'

January 21st, 2015 6:03pm EST
American Sniper
American Sniper by the numbers: $105 million opening weekend at the box office, six Oscar nominations and one fake baby.

Despite the greatness of Clint Eastwood's biopic of late U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the very obvious movie mistake has distracted nearly every person who has seen the film.

During a scene when Kyle (Bradley Cooper) is at home with wife Taya (Sienna Miller), the two discuss the sniper's decision to go back to Iraq for another tour of duty and pass the baby -- an obvious prop -- back and forth.

There's no word on whether or not the move was intentional or not, but back i...

That 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Tampon Scene Won't Be In The Movie
Most fans of "Fifty Shades of Grey" will probably be relieved that a certain scene from the book didn't make it into the film.

Those who read the book know exactly which scene we're talking about here, but for those who passed on E.L. James' erotic "mommy porn" novel, here's what happens...

(SPOILERS) Eccentric billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), falls for college coed Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and then proceeds to get all sorts of S&M kinky with her. One of their intimate scenes involves him removing her tampon, tossing it into the toilet and then proceeding to do the nast...

'R100' S&M Day Part 2 - The Interview
Not many actors can pull off being the CEO of an exclusive boutique dominatrix agency that specializes in extreme acts of public degradation. But if you’re a forceful, intimidating, 6’ 8 1/4” tall, ripped and gorgeously stacked blonde Amazonian woman, playing a position of that type can come very easily. Such is the physical prowess of the mighty Lindsay Kay Hayward, a former WWE fighter turned actress who plays the very memorable S&M CEO in Hitoshi Matsumoto’s kinky and funny flick "R100" (opening Jan. 23 in theaters and On Demand from Drafthouse Films). After having a full day of sexy ...

Sarah Palin
Sarah Palin has spoken out about all the "Hollywood leftists" who are blasting "American Sniper," including filmmaker Michael Moore and actor Seth Rogen.

Moore and Rogen both commented on the biopic of celebrated U.S. sniper Chris Kyle. Moore didn't name any names, but said that all snipers are "cowards" because an uncle (who he never met) was killed by one in WWII; while Rogen compared the film to the six minute propaganda film in "Inglourious Basterds."

Palin blasted Hollywood, calling those who spit on the graves of those who put their lives at risk and died for our country unfit to ev...

R100
The things I do for the fans! Not being a stranger to the truly weird and bizarre that the most extreme cinema has to offer, I was nevertheless intrigued recently by the strange, ominous yet compelling invite in celebration of the film "R100" (opening in theaters and On Demand on Jan. 23 from Drafthouse Films) sent to my email below:

Never one to be squeamish and a huge fan of the work of "R100" helmer Hitoshi Matsumoto (go "Big Man Japan!") this event seemed like one worth checking out. (An 'Undisclosed Dungeon' - oh boy!) So for the all you folks out there who dare to dream in l...
