10 SXSW 2014 Movies People Will Be Talking About

Confession: though I love Sundance and know it’s the preeminent domestic film festival, etc., my heart belongs to SXSW. It’s a warmer (literally — Texas in March is immeasurably more pleasant than Utah in January), friendlier, more relaxed and enjoyable fest, and the food doesn’t even compare. But that’s not what we’re there for, of course; what matters is the movies, and as usual, this year’s SXSW Film Festival offers a wide variety of studio fare, thoughtful indies, gutsy genre pics, and general weirdness. Here are just a few of their selections that you’ll be hearing more about in the weeks and months to come: … Read More

Celebrate Nicolas Cage’s 50th Birthday With Some Incredibly Disturbing Nicolas Cage Fan Art

Today is Nicolas Cage’s 50th birthday! Are you surprised he made it this long? Me too. And how will you be celebrating? Will you watch all of the National Treasure movies and look up facts about American history on Wikipedia? Will you recreate the roach-eating scene in Vampire’s Kiss? Will you Cage Your Queue? All of those sound like great ideas. As for me, I’m done, because I went through the terrifying rabbit hole that is the Nicolas Cage Fan Art community on the Internet, and I’ve returned with the ten most unsettling images to share, just in case the Polar Vortex hasn’t already ruined your day.  … Read More

Hilarious Photos of Internet-Inspired Costumes at Last Night’s HallowMEME

The Internet went offline at the fifth annual HallowMEME party at Brooklyn’s Bell House last night, thrown by Forced Meme Productions, Kelly Reeves, Andrea Rosen, and Lindsey Weber (who, it should be noted, dressed up as emojis with their stances ready for recognition). While in 2012 there were many women in binders and unimpressed McKaylas, this year, shibes and foxes were aplenty. Danny Tamberelli (Little Pete from The Adventures of Pete & Pete) helped judge the costume contest: third place went to the duo dressed as LED Light Suit Babies, a two-day old meme; second to “Hip to be Square” Patrick Bateman; and the winner: Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat his Cereal. Obviously. … Read More

50 Trashy Movies Everyone Needs to See Before They Die

A few weeks back, we had a very good time sifting through the whole of literature and plucking out the very best of the very trashiest books. Because film is an inherently more populist medium, the intellectual engagement with film trash is, historically, a bit more consistent. Of the films that qualified as “great trash,” Pauline Kael wrote, “What gives this trash a lift, what makes it entertaining is clearly that some of those involved, knowing of course that they were working on a silly shallow script and a movie that wasn’t about anything of consequence, used the chance to have a good time with it.” These 50 movies meet that… Read More

25 ‘Die Hard’ Knockoffs for ‘Die Hard’s’ 25th Anniversary

Break out your blood-smeared undershirt and go crawl around in an air duct: this month marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Die Hard, John McTiernan’s seminal action movie that made Bruce Willis a star, Alan Rickman a go-to villain, and the simple formula of a lone hero, a contained location, and a brilliant supervillian into one of Hollywood’s most durable. And though Fox paid its own dubious tribute to the franchise with its most recent sequel, the true testament to the film’s influence is the sheer volume of Die Hard imitators unleashed in the quarter-century since its release. … Read More
