Kylo Ren's lightsaber

If you’ve been paying attention to our extensive Star Wars coverage, then you probably saw our round-up of 20 scenes that were cut from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Those scenes would add plenty of footage to the movie, and some have wondered if we might get The Force Awakens extended cut, or dare I say, The Force Awakens: Special Edition. But according to director J.J. Abrams, that’s not in the cards. Read More »

guardians of the galaxy deleted scene

One of the great strengths of Guardians of the Galaxy is how it just drops you into the deep end of this crazy, cosmic universe and expects you to keep up with it. Director James Gunn trusts the audience enough to just with roll every little weird thing that he throws their way. Here is a galaxy teeming with life and occupied with countless different species and cultures. The film doesn’t dwell on the details – it just builds a colorful world and drives you through it at full speed.

That’s why it felt totally okay that there was never a scene in the movie where Dave Bautista‘s hilariously literal Drax sat down and explained where all of the tattoos and carefully designed scars on his body came from. We don’t need that information! The look of the character and his body art tells us everything we need to know.

However, a newly revealed Guardians of the Galaxy deleted scene is literally a scene where Drax sits down and explains where all of the tattoos and carefully designed scars on his body came from.

hobbit movie problems

Even the most ardent defenders of Peter Jackson‘s three-film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit acknowledge that none of them come close to matching the highs of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Something about them just feels off from frame one, like something important is missing. Whatever spark made the first trilogy such a magical experience is missing here.

And it’s now apparent that no one knows this more than Jackson himself. In a new special feature on the newly released extended edition of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the Oscar-winning filmmaker is completely honest about his experience on the films and how a rushed schedule sapped his spirit. You will never see a filmmaker look more tired, lost and despondent than you will here. It’s genuinely heartbreaking.

Keep on reading to sort through the various Hobbit movie problems with Peter Jackson as your tour guide.

jurassic world deleted scene

Since Jurassic World made over $1.6 billion at the worldwide box office earlier this summer, chances are strong that you’ve already seen Colin Trevorrow‘s film and are therefore ready to check out a deleted scene. If so, you’ve come to the right place. One of the scenes that hit the cutting floor, which can also be found on the new Blu-ray and DVD, has made its way online and is currently available for your viewing pleasure.

Well, we’re using the phrase “viewing pleasure” loosely as the scene involves Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt literally covering themselves in dinosaur poop. Then again, that may very well be your thing. This is a no judgment zone.

You can watch the Jurassic World deleted scene after the jump. Just remember to wash your hands before you eat anything.

deleted monty python animation

Monty Python and the Holy Grail is one of those things that is actually as good as you remember. No amount of obnoxious over-quoting by comedy nerds trying out their best (i.e., terrible) British accent can ruin the best jokes. An amusing but safely mainstream Broadway musical adaptation cannot diminish its transgressive delights. 40 years later, it’s still one of the best comedies ever made, from one of the most inspired comedy groups to ever walk this planet.

So when long-lost animation from the film is unearthed for the new Blu-ray and DVD release, everyone with good taste has reason to celebrate! And when original Python troupe member/animator/token American Terry Gilliam is called in to provide commentary, everyone with the best taste has additional reason to break out the party favors.

Watch the deleted Monty Python animation, and Gilliam’s commentary, after the jump.
