Via MTV News — Everyone loves reading critics' takedowns of movies, so much so that Roger Ebert even put out a book called "Your Movie Sucks."
But you probably didn't realize that the harshest movie critics are the movies themselves.
We've put together a supercut showing that this year's movies seemed to have a bit of a self-esteem problem. Wondering what the makers of"After Earth" thought of their film? You'll see star Jaden Smith proclaim "That sucked," while his father Will tells him "That is correct." Want to explain the failure of "The Internship?" John Goodman can help you out by looking straight at Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn and telling them "You two are dinosaurs, face it." How does Halle Berry feel about being in "The Call"? Well, as she says, "Sometimes we all get into situations that sometimes get out of our control."
Via MTV News — Admit it: You live in Springfield. In your mind, at least. Whether you think the fictitious everytown is in Oregon, Illinois, Missouri or elsewhere, you've been a fan of "The Simpsons" for years and have imagined yourself as a little cartoon human, eating donuts alongside Homer, studying with Lisa or watching movies with Bart.
Now, thanks to the creative genius of Old Red Jalopy and MTV News, you're that much closer to living in Springfield. "The Simpsons" is littered with references to fake movies and their stars (Troy McClure, we see you there), so we took steps to make that a little more real by casting them and bringing you their posters. Grab your popcorn and buy your tickets, because we think you've got a date with "The Contrabulous Fabtraption of Professor Horatio Hufnagel."
The trailer for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" dropped earlier this week, and while it surely excited fans of the previous films and the comics, it came across as a bit confusing for those that didn't already know what was going to be happening. So, our good friends over at MTV News got director Bryan Singer on the phone to answer some of the biggest questions. Get More »
The witching hour is approaching fast, people, 'cause it's Halloween, and that means tonight the costumes will go on and once that spiked apple cider starts flowing, all inhibitions will probably soar right out the door. Will it be a treat? That totally depends.
'Til night falls, though, how about a little holiday-themed movie-to-book trickery to tide even your spookiest inner demons over?
The internet wins big again today because here we have a drop-everything-and-watch-this-right-now mashing of some of Disney's most (dis)favored villains and the "Cell Block Tango" from "Chicago." Yes, really. Happy Tuesday!
This weekend, while the Ohio State Buckeyes took a halftime break from their utter annihilation of Penn State, the school's marching band decided to pitch in with their own brand of day-ownage as well and performed one helluva movie-themed routine.
Dubbed the "Hollywood Blockbuster" halftime show, these OSU marchers pulled out all the stops to give a little homage to their favorite film franchises, and what's really interesting is that all of their choices are pretty relevant to today's market as well. Get More »
Everybody (at least, everyone on the internet) loves a good set of memes, and for obvious reasons we have a particular fancy for the movie-related sort. But apart from Tommy Lee Jones' pissed face at the Golden Globes, there's been very little opportunity to offer up a crossover with one of the web's best-ever meme creations, Grumpy Cat ... 'til now, that is.
Presenting Grumpy Cat animated in as various Disney characters. It's pretty much everything you've been waiting for...and then some. Get More »
