One of the most famous scenes in Mary Harron‘s American Psycho turns in on itself in thanks to Funny or Die. The scene in question finds Christan Bale’s character Patrick Bateman pointing out the cultural and musical value of Huey Lewis and the News while preparing to murder a colleague.
Funny or Die’s version puts Huey Lewis into the Bateman role, turning the scene into a psychopathic cultural ouroboros. But why’s “Weird” Al Yankovic in this parody? I think you already know. Read More »
ScreenJunkies has done it again, creating another one of their funny “Honest Trailers” for the upcoming 3D rerelease of Jurassic Park. I personally loved the 3D conversion of this classic Spielberg film (probably the best 3D conversion I’ve seen so far) but its hard not to chuckle at this video lampoon. Watch it now embedded after the jump.

Sorry, fans of the 2008 comedy Pineapple Express. There’s not a sequel in the works. Instead, what you get on this April Fools Day is a parody trailer featuring all the film’s original stars, and a few other guests. Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson are joined by Jonah Hill (playing someone else) in a trailer for Pineapple Express 2. Check it out below. Read More »

Briefly: There’s really nothing you can say about this video that the clip doesn’t say for itself. The Huffington Post has edited every single one of Woody Allen‘s signature stammers, from every single one of his movies, into one glorious supercut. It’s a supercut that runs 44 minutes. Forty-four minutes of Woody, from young man to older gentleman, “Ah” ing and “Um” ing his way through awkward, hilarious situations. It’s superb. Read More »

Steven Spielberg‘s Jurassic Park comes back to theaters on April 5 in 3D and IMAX. Even if you aren’t a fan of those formats, it’s a trip well worth taking simply because in the twenty years since its release, most of the times you’ve seen the film has been at home. Maybe you were even lucky enough to see it in a repertory theater but you haven’t seen it with a fully-functional, high-end sound system and projection since 1993. For that alone, Jurassic Park 3D is worth checking out. Spielberg’s movie works at any size, but it was meant to be seen big.
Watching the film again, you’ll marvel at how good the effects still look, even in the revealing 3D IMAX format. Part of that is the astonishing, Oscar-winning visual effects of Dennis Muren and the team at Industrial Light and Magic. It’s also because of the equally impressive way Spielberg blended those computer effects with practical effects done by Stan Winston and his team.
The Stan Winston School has been posting some great videos to YouTube recently and their latest takes us behind the scenes with the everyone’s favorite “veggiesaurus,” the Brachiosaur. Read More »

Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight is a shining example of a what a comic book movie can be. It’s dark and exciting, and the performances are as rich as the story. In fact, the film is so well-regarded some fans put it on an unattainable pedestal and vehemently attack anyone who dare say anything negative about Nolan’s second entry in his Batman trilogy.
But the film has some problems. A plot hole here, questionable motivation there. While most people tend to forgive those for the sake of pure, well-made entertainment, the CinemaSins team is not among those people. They’ve done the unthinkable, and created a sure-to-be controversial video calling out everything wrong with The Dark Knight in four minutes or less. Read More »
