So Bad It’s Good: The Proudly Formulaic, Brazenly Homoerotic ‘Tango & Cash’

Bad movies are not a simple matter. There are nearly as many categories of terrible movies as there are for great ones: there are films that are insultingly stupid (Batman & Robin), unintentionally funny (Birdemic), unintentionally, painfully unfunny (White Chicks), so bad they’re depressing (Transformers), and so on. But the most rewarding terrible movies are those we know as “so bad they’re good” — entertaining in their sheer incompetence, best braved in numbers, where the ham-fisted dramatics and tin-eared dialogue become fodder for years of random quotes and inside jokes. And in this spirit, Flavorwire brings you the latest installment in our monthly So Bad It’s Good feature: the greased-up ‘80s buddy cop epic Tango & Cash. … Read More

Martin Scorsese’s Weirdest Projects

Over the holiday weekend, Martin Scorsese directed a new film featuring his longtime collaborator Robert De Niro, his current collaborator Leonardo Di Caprio, and Brad Pitt. But don’t mark your calendars just yet to see Jimmy the Gent, the Wolf of Wall Street, and Aldo Raine face off under Scorsese’s direction on the big screen — it was all for a commercial. Well, to be clear, it’s a “casino-themed short film” for next year’s opening of the Studio City resort hotel in Macau, China. In other words, Marty gotta eat — and the whole weird story is a nice reminder that even the most respected of contemporary filmmakers has taken on a lot of very strange jobs between his cinematic… Read More

Well, friends, spring is in the air (occasional lingering thundersnow aside), and Easter weekend is upon us, which could mean several things for you: participation in some sort of egg hunt, consumption of massive quantities of chocolate and sugar, a biannual visit to some sort of house of worship.

The Best and Worst of Last Night’s ‘SNL’ with John Goodman

John Goodman! He’s SNL royalty. The actor with the gravelly baritone has hosted the series 13 times, and is most famous for his cameo as Linda Tripp during that whole Monica Lewinsky thing with the Clinton administration. Last week’s episode ended with a Bill Brasky sketch (the first one in 15 years), so Goodman seems like the logical choice to continue the old-school SNL vibe. Kenan Thompson had the most screen time with our host, and two special guests dropped by to share the stage. Goodman has the chops, the versatility, and the presence — but despite all that, this week’s sketches were largely one-note creating some weird timing issues and average returns. See what you make of Goodman’s appearance, below. … Read More
