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.

Real Rob Trailer

Netflix has revived everything from Arrested Development to The Killing to Full House to Gilmore Girls, and apparently they figured while they were at it, they might as well bring back Rob Schneider‘s short-lived CBS sitcom ¡Rob!, too.

Well, not really. But the company is putting out another sitcom named after and starring Schneider. Real Rob promises to be somewhat more autobiographical, though. This is to Schneider what Master of None was to Aziz Ansari. Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing depends on what you think of Schneider’s brand of comedy. Watch the first Real Rob trailer after the jump.  Read More »

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.

11.22.63 trailer

The pedigree behind the upcoming miniseries 11.22.63 is certainly intriguing. You have Hulu taking another huge step into the the world of original content (consider this a direct parry to Netflix’s constant blows). You have source material from the great Stephen King, whose novel of the same name is the one of the most acclaimed he’s written in years. You have J.J. Abrams on board as an executive producer. And then you have James Franco, that slippery wild card of a leading man, headlining an ensemble stuffed with interesting actors.

The first trailer for the nine-epiosde limited series has arrived and while it’s only a minor tease, it’s certainly going to turn a few heads. There are too many interesting parties involved to not dredge up interest.

Watch the 11.22.63 trailer after the jump.

A Very Murray Christmas

Once upon a time, a holiday variety special hosted by Bill Murray would have been a star-studded live affair airing on a major television network. As a sign of changing times and tastes, A Very Murray Christmas is heading straight to Netflix and it looks like it captures the kind of melancholy and dryly funny humor that infect so many of us during the more festive months of the year.

After a series of brief teasers, the first actual trailer for A Very Murray Christmas has arrived and it feels far different than what we were expecting. What initially looked like it was going to be a riff on kitschy Christmas specials of old now appears to be very much a project of late-era Bill Murray: the comedy is only matched by loneliness, sadness, and sense of detachment. But if there’s one thing we know, it’s that few people are capable of mining comedy from those concepts quite like Murray.

So grab some eggnog, load it up with the alcohol of your choice, and watch the A Very Murray Christmas trailer after the jump.
