Audiences React to The Exorcist

Pretty much every genre of film is different today than it was decades ago. But the two genres that seem to suffer the most from feeling dated are horror and comedy. There are plenty of things that aren’t as scary or as funny as they were to audiences during what was then the present day. The same thing will happen with films released today as time goes on.

But thanks to the magic of video and the internet, we can take a peek through time and see what scared audiences over 40 years ago. It was the year 1973, and The Exorcist was one of the most controversial horror movies ever made. People were scared out of their minds when this movie hit theaters, passing out during screenings, leaving early because they were unable to endure the horror. And if you want to know what this phenomenon was like, a cool video has surfaced showing how people were affected by this movie. Watch audiences react to The Exorcist after the jump! Read More »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we spend our summer vacation in France, jump over to Spain to get our heart broken, resurrect the Third Reich for funsies, glow in the saintly aura of Kid ‘n Play, and wash it down with some brew compliments of the state that’s lovingly pronounced by its ex-governor as: CAHL E FOUR KNEE UHHH.

Deadpool Make a Wish

With confirmation that the eagerly anticipated big screen adaptation of Deadpool is going to be R-rated, there’s no doubt that the property isn’t the most kid-friendly comic book character. But that didn’t stop Ryan Reynolds from making a young boy’s wish come true to meet Deadpool and visit the set of the movie that’s in production in Vancouver right now.

Young Tony Acevedo was given a great gift by the Make-A-Wish Foundation when his wish was to meet Deadpool. Reynolds posted a photo to Instagram of him meeting young Acevedo, and it’s an adorable, touching moment. See the young fan’s Deadpool make a wish come true below! Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Mario Kart Mad Max Fury Road

People just can’t stop talking about Mad Max: Fury Road. The action bonanza seems to be the movie to beat this summer, and I’m not sure that any of the releases coming up have the potential to overshadow this gorgeous, mesmerizing, mind-blowing piece of cinema. And since we’ve been gushing about the movie for over a week now, it’s time to start playing around with it on the internet by mashing it up with whatever people can think of.

Earlier this week we already featured a surprisingly perfect mash-up of the Netflix comedy series The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and footage of Charlize Theron being a certified badass as Imperator Furiosa. Now another fantastic use of Mad Max: Fury Road footage has come along that combines the film non-stop chase with elements of Mario Kart. It’s surprisingly well-done and very amusing. Watch the Mario Kart Mad Max Fury Road video after the jump. Read More »
