Well here’s something you don’t see every day: a gold medal-winning figure skater paying homage to The Big Lebowski. Thanks to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Tara Lipinski took center stage on the ice rink at Rockefeller Center in New York City to twirl around with a long brown coat and White Russian. And no, she doesn’t spill the beverage. Read More »
John Connor is just one boy, but keeping him safe was awfully expensive. The CinemaSins team put on James Cameron‘s 1991 film Terminator 2: Judgement Day and attempted to figure out exactly how much all the damage caused in the film would have cost the city of Los Angeles and everywhere else. Watch the video below for an estimate of the cost of cleaning up the destruction Arnold Schwarzenegger and Robert Patrick left in their wake. Read More »
Minor spoilers for Thor: The Dark World follow.
By now, hopefully anyone who wanted to see Thor: The Dark World, has done so. The film had a super successful international box office run and the Blu-ray is coming out February 25. If you haven’t yet seen the movie you have lots to look forward to, including a hilarious highlight which was one of the last things shot in the movie.
That highlight is Loki being super-mischievous when talking to his brother Thor; we’ll explain more after the break, or you can simply watch an alternate version of the scene. Read More »
In the realm of movie criticism, people love absolutes. This movie is better than that movie. This movie is 2 stars and that one is 5 stars, etc. However, if you actually critique movies for a living, you quickly realize not all movies are created equal. There are times and circumstances where films that may not be equal are given similar grades for different reasons. Speaking personally, did I love Man of Steel for what it was and give it a positive review? Yes. Was the grade the same or higher than films on my top 10 of the year? Yes. But Man of Steel didn’t make the list because it served a different purpose than those films.
One person who would have totally understood that is Roger Ebert. Ebert was a big proponent of context in criticism (hence giving a thumbs up to Benji the Hunted but not Full Metal Jacket, as seen in Life Itself) and recommending The Longest Yard and The Honeymooners over War of the Worlds. Below, watch those two clips to hear Ebert explain his reasons for movie review ratings. Read More »

Every once in a while, something amazing pops up on the internet, maybe a piece of history from a time before WiFi and iPhones, something most of us never imagined we’d get to see. Old interviews, behind the scenes documentaries and sometimes even set footage from movies of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s occasionally appear online and it’s like Christmas all over again.
Christmas is back today as someone has uncovered an eight minute video of Quentin Tarantino and Steve Buscemi rehearsing scenes from Reservoir Dogs. This is incredible, fly on the wall stuff. Check it out below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We hate spoilers. And so does actress Jennifer Lawrence. While doing an interview on the red carpet of the SAG Awards, one of the interviewers decided to spoil the ending of season three of Showtime’s television series Homeland even though Lawrence had just told the “reporter” that she had only seen the first two seasons. Watch the video after the jump to see Jennifer Lawrence try to channel her anger into comedy. I’m not sure I could keep it that calm.
