It can’t be easy watching a movie about your life. Some people get extremely agitated when pivotal parts of their favorite book aren’t in the film adaptation, so imagine what’d be like for those people seeing an unfaithful or highly dramatized version of their own life shown on the big screen. The movie, especially if it’s popular, is going to be associated with their image forever. Not all audience members leave a theater saying, “I bet that one scene was dramatized for storytelling purposes,” so, if the portrait of its subject is unflattering or inaccurate, that can’t feel great for the subject.
Many folks featured in bio movies have felt left the theater not feeling so hot on how they’ve been depicted, while others have been pleased with the results. Learn about a few biopic reactions from the subjects after the jump.

After celebrating the Fourth of July for Independence Day with grilling, fireworks and general American tomfoolery, why not ease back into the work week by breaking the fourth wall?
Below you’ll find a supercut of moments in the movies when characters break the fourth wall. For those who don’t know what that means, it’s when a character in a movie looks directly into the camera, addressing the audience, acknowledging that you’re watching their story play out and that they’re in a narrative. From Ferris Bueller’s Day Off to The Wolf of Wall Street, there’s some great moments here.

Guardians of the Galaxy and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 are shaping up to be the biggest hits of the year at the global box office. But in terms of the year’s most pirated films, they don’t even make the top 20.
Instead, the most popular movies among illegal downloaders in 2014 were some of the best loved films from 2013. Perhaps the biggest surprise is that this is the one popularity contest Frozen didn’t manage to win — it comes in at #2. So what was #1? Get the top 20 most pirated movies of 2014 after the jump.

You may have heard that Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf Of Wall Street holds the record for the most F-bombs in a narrative feature film (the documentary “Fuck” obviously wins the all time record). ScreenJunkies decided to create a two-and-a-half minute cut of the film featuring only the F words said in the movie. But those jokers decided to focus on some of the less obvious f-words in the film, and not feature any of the movie’s record-breaking 506 F-bombs. Watch the The Wolf of Wall Street Just The F Words Edit supercut embedded after the jump.

The best thing about the Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers are that the crew behind them actually like the movies they’re parodying. Their latest endeavor, The Wolf of Wall Street, shows plenty of reverence for director Martin Scorsese‘s hilarious yet disturbing story of excess. It points out much of what’s great about the movie while also poking fun at its pop culture relevance. It highlights co-star Matthew McConaughey beating Leonardo DiCaprio for the Oscar, the debut of Jonah Hill‘s penis, Scorsese’s love of DiCaprio, and how some audiences totally missed the point of the movie. It’s a super funny video. Watch The Wolf of Wall Street Honest Trailer below. Read More »

The 2014 MTV Movie Award nominations have been announced, and the list could be the perfect medicine to anyone a little upset with how the Oscars turned out. Best Picture winner 12 Years a Slave is among the nominees for Best Movie of the Year, but it’s joined by The Hobbit: The Desoluation of Smaug and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (along with fellow Oscar nominees American Hustle and The Wolf of Wall Street). Those last two led all nominees with eight apiece, followed closely by Hunger Games and…wait for it…We’re The Millers with six a piece.
As usual though, there are some fun categories and nominations for films Oscar ignored such as This Is The End, Anchorman 2, Spring Breakers, The Spectacular Now, Fruitvale Station and others. Below, check out the full list of 2014 MTV Movie Award Nominations. Read More »
Even before we found out “everything is awesome” in The LEGO Movie, LEGO movie stuff was pretty “awesome” on the internet. The LEGO video games made new fans, and reimagined posters using the construction toys are fairly common place. Huge trailers are regularly adapted into stop motion LEGO versions. Even so, those adaptations are usually for “blockbuster” cinema, big summer and superhero movies.
Now the gang over at Old Red Jalopy have remade the posters for all 9 Oscar nominees for Best Picture with LEGO. It makes sense for some, like Gravity, but 12 Years A Slave? Nebraska? The fricking Dallas Buyers Club in LEGO? Check them out below. Read More »
UPDATE: Collider has taken back their story saying this information from the producers is incorrect.
Before Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street hit theaters, there was much talk about the film’s length. An early cut was said to be around four hours long but Paramount wanted it to be at least an hour shorter, which reportedly held up the release. From that, a aura of mystery surrounded this rumored extended cut even though Scorsese himself said the theatrical cut, which ran 179 minutes, was his director’s cut. (Scorsese’s theatrical cuts are always his director’s cuts.)
Most of the time, when a master like Scorsese says a cut is a director’s cut, that’s the end of the conversation. But two of his producers now suggest the epic four-hour version of the film will be on the Blu-ray later this Spring. Read More »
When Paul Thomas Anderson took the world by storm with his second film, Boogie Nights, critics couldn’t help but compare him to a young Martin Scorsese. Anderson was obviously influenced by the filmmaker, and in the years since, they’ve become friends. For Scorsese’s previous film, Hugo, Anderson interviewed the director in Los Angeles and that happened again last week for Scorsese’s Oscar-nominated film, The Wolf of Wall Street. You can watch the thirty minutes of the exchange below. Read More »
