Exodus whitewashing

David, Devindra, and Jeff enjoy the comedic stylings of Bill Burr, get mildly impressed by The Purge: Anarchy, marvel at the dickishness of Jason Schwartzman in Listen Up Philip, and praise the moving The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness.

Epic Rap Battle Spielberg Hitchcock

The Epic Rap Battles of History video series has been going for a couple years. The crew behind the show, which is in its fourth “season,” consistently manages to create simple beats and entertainingly brutal verbal disses by ringleaders Peter Shukoff and Lloyd Ahlquist, and some impressive costumes for the core cast that performs as various figures from history, pop culture, and the creative scene. The latest entry pits Steven Spielberg against Alfred Hitchcock in a multi-act verse showdown. But this is an extra-long episode — typically each combatant gets a couple rounds in — with two big guns stars. Check out the epic rap battle between Spielberg and Hitchcock below. Read More »

MoonQuake Lake trailer

Phil Lord and Chris Miller have built up so much goodwill at this point, they could probably get audiences to watch anything. But even they may be testing their limits with MoonQuake Lake, a third-rate Twilight knockoff starring Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, and Rihanna.

Or rather, they might be pushing it if MoonQuake Lake were a real film instead of a pitch-perfect sendup of the fantasy YA subgenre. It’s the best joke from Annie, the new musical by Will Gluck. Watch Lord and Miller’s MoonQuake Lake trailer — and their tongue-in-cheek reaction to the film’s Golden Globes snub — after the jump.  Read More »

Terminator Genisys Paradox

The new film Terminator: Genisys appears to create a whole new parallel timeline connected to the first couple films in the series, by doing even more mucking about with time travel than those two films did. We know that the new film dramatically recontextualizes major characters from the first film, but just how does the chronology of the series now fit together? And exactly how many versions of Arnold Schwarzenegger have now been sent back in time? Check out a fan edit of the film’s first trailer to explore (and heavily mock) the Terminator Genisys paradox.

hr_Star_Trek_Into_Darkness_32

When the director of the first two Star Trek films went to another Star-oriented franchise, the world waited to hear who would direct the third new Star Trek film. Dozens of names were floated for Star Trek 3 and then Roberto Orci, a co-producer and writer on the first two films in the series, stepped into the seat. This was a controversial decision. Orci had never directed a film; fans were worried. Fast-forward a few months and Orci is out. He’s still involved as a producer, but he won’t be directing. The search is on once again on for another director.

As Paramount and Bad Robot frantically try and find someone to hit a planned Summer 2016 release date, we figured we’d help. We came up with 15 names who should, could, and actually might direct Star Trek 3. That means anyone who has an obvious film in the pike is out. Anyone who had passed is out and huge Hail Marys like Spielberg, Nolan or Scorsese are out. What’s left is a half wish-list, half possible list of 15 names. Read our Star Trek 3 director ideas below.

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 get on the boat with some zombies, get weird with the Chinese, find a bisexual life partner, go on walkabout with a lonely man, and get some culture by visiting a museum in Vienna.
