Normally my reaction to an email about some foreign movie is to say “Aw, subtitles? I hate readin!” and then sadly kick my Truck Nuts until they spin around the trailer hitch. But when I scrolled down to see the promo image that accompanied the press release for Of Horses And Men, Iceland’s entry for the best foreign language Oscar, I clapped my palms together with glee.
Mike Breach, barista extraordinaire, is stepping up his game as the Academy Awards approach. He’s in the process of “painting” this year’s Best Picture nominees — in lattes. So far he’s finished Dallas Buyers Club, Gravity, Her, andShow More Summary
One of the best decisions that the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences ever made was to travel back to the good old days and re-expand the Best Picture category’s nominations to 10. There are just too many good movies made in...Show More Summary
We’re still more than a month away from the release of Dom Hemingway in the U.S. (April 2, you bloody wankers), so it’s becoming a little irritating to keep having to watch the new clips and trailers that remind us that this movie looks so darn delightful. Show More Summary
Comedian/recovering heroin addict Matt Lieb joins the crew on this week’s Frotcast. Ben, Vince, and Matt are live from San Francisco, Bret joins us via Skype from New York. We all saw Captain Phillips this week, which we discuss. Matt liked Tom Hanks in shock at the end. Show More Summary
Pictured: The reason I could never dislike James Franco, no matter how much he defends Shia Labeouf. Today is John Steinbeck’s birthday (as a rural Central Californian, Steinbeck is probably our second proudest export, behind Kevin Federline). Not sweating his unconscionable Oscar snub, Mr. Franco showed off his stacks o’ Steinbeck paperbacks in tribute.
Wake up, little Susies! Finch here, with some dumb people doing dumb sht news. Onward: 1. “People don’t hate me enough; time to call my lawyer.” If you know me, and you most assuredly do not, then you’re aware that Wolf of Wall Street...Show More Summary
Kate Beckinsale will star as the female love interest opposite Simon Pegg in the new comedy Absolutely Anything, which is being directed by Terry Jones. Obviously, the much more important aspect of this film is that it also stars Jones...Show More Summary
Matthew McConaughey is currently the favorite to win Best Actor at Sunday’s 86th Academy Awards ceremony, according to some of the members of our esteemed panel of adult film stars, and that means that he’s making his last media rounds to discuss Dallas Buyers Club and True Detective before he hopefully accepts his ultimate honor.
Look, all you need to know about the Oscars to know that it’s a joke is that Inside Llewyn Davis didn’t even get nominated for music, while a song by Bono did. Did you know the original intent of the Academy was for studio heads to declaw the labor movement by pinning meaningless baubles and trinkets to their chests?
Remaking recent movies is all the rage in Hollywood these days, and now a prestige director is getting in on the game. Director David Fincher, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is set to direct an Aaron Sorkin script about the life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. Show More Summary
As we’ve seen before, when DVD bootleggers create cover art for their products, a lot of times they just pull random reviews of whatever movie they’re selling and stick it on the box like a traditional pull quote, with no regard for whether the review is actually positive. Unintentional or not, there’s actually something refreshingly honest about that.
The Academy Awards are fast approaching, and I can think of no better way to prepare than by watching the video above, which features over 100 clips from the early film, TV, and commercial roles of this year’s twenty Oscar-nominatedShow More Summary
Icelander Siggi Hjartson is the founder and curator of one of Iceland’s top tourist attractions, the Iceland Phallological Museum, which ranks just behind the Narwhal Racetrack and Reykjavik Shark Distillery in most Lonely Planet guides to Iceland. Show More Summary
With the 86th Academy Awards ceremony just four days away, everyone from your mother to your mother’s OB-GYN has an opinion about which movies, actors, actresses and so on will take home the biggest awards, and it’s safe to say that this may be the most hotly-contested Oscars event in the history of everything ever made.
Spike Lee and “hipsters” get along about as well as Spike Lee and “movie critics,” so once you get him started on gentrification in Brooklyn, and what Bed Stuy is now compared to what it was, he’s not going to stop for some time. Last...Show More Summary
Longtime Arnold Schwarzenegger fans may have been wondering what kind of movie they’d be getting with his latest action film Sabotage, written and directed by David Ayer, who did the same for End of Watch. Would it be ridiculous and cheesy in a bad way like The 6th Day, Collateral Damage and generally everything he starred in before “retirement”?

In honor of Liam Neeson’s (Liam Neesons?) return to the multiplex this weekend with his latest ersatz Taken sequel, Non-Stop (I think he fights a plane in this one), the gang at CinemaSins have put together their latest “Everything Wrong With…” video, Everything Wrong With Taken In 9 Minutes Or Less. But then the status bar on the video says 12:22.
The best original song from a movie released in 2013 won’t win Best Original Song this Sunday. That’s because “Please Mr. Kennedy” wasn’t technically eligible, because it’s a blah blah blah UH OH. Even though the unstoppable snowball-rolling-down-a-mountain...Show More Summary
