Cool Videos: Honest Trailer for Brad Pitt's World War Z

Do you know what I don't understand? How people can get so butt-hurt over the Honest Trailers and the similar Everything Wrong videos. It's not like these are videos that mock serious issues that we face in the world today: they're about f*cking movies.

WORLD WAR Z was a surprising success at the box office despite numerous reports of the strife on set and the ballooning budget that had many predicting a huge flop.

C'mon Hollywood: Have some integrity with your "adaptations"

Last week I went and saw WORLD WAR Z with an open mind. I read the book, ironically, while at a combat outpost in Iraq and it was an amazing, provoking, and creative tale that brought forth some awesome imagery, especially given my circumstances. It was so much more emotional and resonant than I thought it would be and when I finished the last page my first thought was, “That...

What did you think of...World War Z?

We've been writing about the saga behind the scenes of WORLD WAR Z for what seems like years now, but those stories are over for now, the film has been released and we've already provided you with 2 differing takes on the film, one from JimmyO who gave it a 7/10 and enjoyed most of it, and Chris Bumbray's review of 5/10 , in which he praised 2/3 of the film, but didn't...
