2020 Razzies Nominations

Since the Academy Awards are taking place this weekend, honoring the best achievements in film, it’s time for the Golden Raspberry Awards to announce who is in the running for worst movies and performances of the year.

The Razzies, as they’re known, aren’t as fun as they used to be, and they often take aim at some of the easiest targets. This year is no exception since Cats is one of three films that came out on top with the most nominations. Cats earned eight nominations, and A Madea Family Funeral and Rambo: Last Blood kept up with the musical felines, and they were all nominated for Worst Picture too. Get the full list of 2020 Razzies nominations below. Read More »

Green Band Trailer

Movie trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?

John Travolta Interview

Odds are you don’t need to be told who John Travolta is, but you may need reminding every few years just why the man is such an icon as both an actor and personality. Depending on your age, you may know him best from different works. For the oldest of the old-school fans, he entered our lives on TV in Welcome Back, Kotter or in such films as Carrie, Saturday Night Fever, and Grease. If your film knowledge doesn’t go back any further than the 1980s, perhaps you know him from Urban Cowboy, Blow Out, or Look Who’s Talking. But Travolta has been working steadily and been fairly beloved thanks to a string of hits in the 1990s that began with Pulp Fiction and continued through Get Shorty, Broken Arrow, Face/Off, and Primary Colors.

His output in the 2000s has been spotty, but every so often he gives us a Swordfish or Hairspray or In A Valley of Violence or his Emmy-nominated portrayal of Robert Shapiro in the first iteration of American Crime Story—The People vs. O.J. Simpson. But there’s also Gotti, which was one of the worst-rated films of 2018 and deservedly so. The one thing that every single one of these roles has in common is that Travolta has never half-assed his way through any of them

the fanatic trailer

We may never get a new Friday the 13th movie, but here’s the next best thing: The Fanatic! This thriller from director Fred Durst (yes, that Fred Durst) features John Travolta as a crazy fan stalking his favorite celebrity. And part of that stalking apparently involves a scene where Travolta dresses up exactly like Jason Voorhees and brandishes a knife. Oh, and did I mention Travolta’s character name is Moose? How can you not want to see this movie at this point? Watch The Fanatic trailer below.

Update: We’ve confirmed that the Moose appearing this month on Amazon is actually a completely different movie, which means we’re going to have to wait a little longer before we see John Travolta and Fred Durst’s Moose, or The Fanatic as it’s possibly called now. The original story continues below.
