The Good, The Bad & The Badass: George Kennedy

Last week, we took a look at the career of enigmatic director Terrence Malick . This week's actor is a guy celebrated for a totally different kind of work, but a late icon who made his mark in a big way.. George Kennedy I'm well aware that of the people that read this column, only a fraction of them will know who George Kennedy is. Those that do will probably...

Quentin Tarantino's New Beverly Cinema will screen Airplane! for 9/11

The New Beverly Cinema located on (you guessed it) Beverly Blvd in Los Angeles, California, has been owned by Quentin Tarantino since December of 2007. He's been quoted as saying, "As long as I'm alive, and as long as I'm rich, the New Beverly will be there, showing double features in 35mm." Obviously the man has a lot of love for the theater, as well as the...

Read JoBlo's own unproduced comedy screenplay entitled "Skool!"

For the 17th anniversary of this site's inception (March 1998), I thought it might be fun to share 1 out of the 4 screenplays I wrote after finishing my MBA back in 1996, as I was looking for a job, a life and a future for myself (btw, if you want to read a more comprehensive "look back" at the site's inception and all, CLICK HERE for that article from last year...

Now this is some reboot news I can get behind. Paramount has tapped Ed Helms to play legendary Detective Frank Drebin in a reboot of THE NAKED GUN: FROM THE FILES OF POLICE SQUAD! Previously portrayed by Leslie Nielsen with absolute comedic genius in both the 1982 TV series and the subsequent films that followed: THE NAKED GUN: FROM THE FILES OF POLICE SQUAD!, THE NAKED GUN 2 1/2: THE...

Review: Scary Movie 5

PLOT: Spoofing the movie MAMA, a young couple, Dan ( Simon Rex ) and Jody ( Ashley Tisdale ), gets custody of Dan's late brother's kids, who are haunted by a ghostly spectre. REVIEW: Every once in a while a movie comes along that's just jaw-dropping in it's badness. I've reviewed a few of them here; movies like PASSION PLAY, ALL ABOUT STEVE, TWIXT, NEW YEAR'S EVE,...

More self-referential jokes from Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan in this new clip for Scary Movie 5

With a seven year gap between films four and five and the similiar parody A HAUNTED HOUSE just released not too long ago, I can't help but think this may be the last film we see in the SCARY MOVIE franchise for a while. Or maybe it's just wishful thinking. These films usually have a reasonable budget so we could be seeing SCARY MOVIE 6 through 37 until the day we die but I'm hoping that...

The second trailer for Scary Movie 5 throws in homages to Mama, Sinister, and Evil Dead

If you weren't already excited to see SCARY MOVIE 5, now you will be even less so. The latest trailer for the horror spoof movie is just as desperate and redundant as the last one. But, the filmmakers decided to shift the focus from PARANORMAL ACTIVITY and add some more recent horror references, namely SINISTER, MAMA, INSIDIOUS, and the remake of EVIL DEAD. I can't help but say this...

The trailer for Scary Movie 5 is the final nail in that franchise's coffin

Because you have all been clamoring for it, the trailer for SCARY MOVIE 5 is finally here! Despite seven years since the fourth film, someone still thought it was a good idea to make another spoof of the horror genre that nobody asked for. The first couple of SCARY MOVIE titles were fun, but once it got to part 3, they just became tedious. Then the onslaught of spoofs like EPIC MOVIE...

Showtime scores Ridley Scott to direct the pilot episode of its new series The Vatican

Ridley Scott may honestly be the busiest man in the film business, or at least close to it - matched (but not eclipsed) only by the likes of Guillermo del Toro or Steven Spielberg, he directs as much as he can and produces whatever he cannot.  And whether or not you're a fan of his storytelling choices, I don't think it can be denied that for every five projects he becomes attached...

The first image from Scary Movie 5 is a meeting of PR car wrecks

I am pretty sure the world stopped caring about SCARY MOVIE after the second one, but here we are talking about SCARY MOVIE 5. At this point, the buzz for the spoof is more about Lindsay Lohan and whether she will live through production. With her recent hit and run, it remains to be seen if they will even finish this movie. But, today we have our first official look at SCARY MOVIE...

Did Lindsay Lohan try to get out of Scary Movie 5?

It's not like we were begging for another sequel to the SCARY MOVIE franchise, but that's not stopping Hollywood from churning one out.  And why shouldn't they?  They're relatively cheap to make with B-list stars and cheesy effects and the box office/video receipts prove that it's a bankable franchise.  Thus, ol' Tiger Blood himself, Charlie Sheen, is jumping into the satire series again,...
