Across the many long, winding roads that make up the information superhighway (a term that '90s-era pioneers often used to describe "the Internet"), one of the most respected of skills is the ability to make a decent mashup.
Really, where would we be if we weren't able to distract ourselves from the tedium of our workdays with little three-minute videos that incorporate footage from different sources to create one cohesive piece of satirical entertainment? No damn where, that's where. Get More »
You know who's hilarious? Diabolical villains.
Murder, torture, terrorism, sorcery – yes, these are all dealings of your typical movie miscreant, that we acknowledge. But we must also acknowledge they have pretty wickedly awesome senses of humor.
Just watch them cackle for two minutes straight in this NextMovie original edited by Avaryl Halley, and tell us you didn't laugh right along with them. Get More »
It's happened to all of us: you go to a movie expecting a thoughtful drama or lighthearted romp. No one warned you — it was all a sick trick to expose you to a vision as bloodcurdling as any "Saw" sequel.
Two hours later, you stumble into the lobby, unsure whether it's tears or your last meal welling up. Maybe it was a disturbing truth exposed in the film that did it. Or maybe the line between surrealist daydream and psychotic nightmare was inadvertently crossed. In honor of Halloween, here's our list of top 9 movies that failed to warn us in the commercials that they'd scar us for life. Get More »
Trick or treat, baby, yeah!
We have to admit, we're a little surprised that no one (to our knowledge) has done this before. Still, better late than never — let 2012 be known as the year we finally got the Mike Myers/Michael Myers "Halloween" mashup. Get More »
Remember old episodes of "Scooby Doo," where they'd rip off a monster mask to reveal a villain — only to rip off another mask and reveal the real culprit underneath? It defies logic — first of all, where did they find such lifelike masks of Old Mr. Jenkins, the carnival owner?
Logistic issues aside, those were our favorite episodes. There's an inherent charm of people dressed as people dressed as other people that's still pretty funny to us as adults. Jim Carrey? Great. Jim Carrey in "Yes Man?" Terrific.
Jim Carrey dressed as his "Yes Man" character who's dressed as Harry Potter? Phenomenal.
So let's take a look at some more actors — including the stars of this weekend's "Fun Size" — dressed as characters dressed in their costume finery. Happy Halloween!
All too often, the scariest part of Halloween is coming up with a brilliant, budget-friendly costume — especially if you've waited until the last minute again (really, when are we going to learn?).
But now that All Hallows Eve is almost upon us, there's no avoiding this monster-in-the-house any longer.
That's why NextMovie has prepared a simple list of easy-to-assemble ensembles sure to save you from squandering your precious Saturday afternoon in line at the local Halloween pop-up shop.
We celebrate all the major holidays here on Planet Fanboy. Arbor Day, St. Swithun's Day, National Talk Like An Insurance Salesman Day. But there's one day we love above all others. My birthday. But Halloween is pretty cool, too. Below is a quick rundown on how to have a spectacularly nerdy All Hallows' Eve.
First, set the alarm super early. Like, we're talkin', 10:45 am or something. You're gonna' need the extra time because there's a big breakfast about to go down. You've got not one, not two, but THREE boxes of undead cereal to get through. We're speaking, of course, of Count Chocula, Boo Berry and, my favorite, Franken Berry. (Franken Berry is the best mostly because the dude on the box looks like Charles Nelson Reilly.) Get More »
Admit it. You've had relationships that turned into horror shows. The screaming, the crying, the panic, the knife-wielding ... well, we can only take this metaphor so far.
'Tis the season for horror, romance and comic hijinks in equal measure. Love a good scare? In honor of Halloween, we've reimagined six romantic comedies as outright horror movies — courtesy of our friend Old Red Jalopy. Get More »
Halloweenis just around the bend, and we have a sneaking suspicion that some of you tributes may want to take your costume fare to District 12 (or the Capitol — we don't judge) this year.
Not all great cinema stars have the most auspicious beginnings to their lives in celluloid. Some start in commercials, TV, bit parts, background work. Hell, a few even dabble in porn (we're looking at you, Sylvester Stallone).
Ground zero for acting talent, more often than not, is the horror genre. This being Halloween season, we decided to highlight a few mega-talents who jumpstarted their careers in much the same way they entered the world: naked, screaming and covered in blood. Get More »
