Scary Movie 5

Scary Movie 5

“Scary Movie 5″ is a pathetic, pitiable attempt at a comedy. I honestly felt sorry at times for its producers and participants. This film is an embarrassment.

It’s a hollow shell of its predecessors in this once mediocre franchise.

YES! We made it through the Winter Movie Season, where Hollywood unloads their junk on us, and now we’re headed into the Spring!

The 2013 Winter Movie Season Preview

Winter

Ok, boys and girls. The Holiday Season is over… and the Spring Season, full of mini Blockbusters, is still months away.

Between now and then lies Hollywood’s dumping ground. The Hollywood fields lie fallow in the winter, bearing little quality product. It’s the two months of the year we need to “Get through”. While January typically offers some limited releases from the prior year going wide, there’s typically little else to get excited over.

Will this year be different? Are there any movies to get excited about these next two months? Let’s take a look at the release slate and see what we’ve got!

The Top Ten Sports Movies

Last night, the 2012 NFL season officially kicked off, and in conjunction, today brings my list of the Top Ten Sports Movies of all time.

This was a difficult list to compile. Mainly due to the difficulty of defining what a “Sports Movie” actually is. A number of great movies use sports as an element, but in reality may be about something else. Perhaps the movie is a drama (“Raging Bull”) or has a strong romantic element (“Bull Durham”). How does one compare those as “Sports Movies” against a movie such as, say… “Miracle”, which is purely focused on a sport?

Compounding the challenge is the fact that this category has an enormous number of movies up for consideration. It would have been easy to go top 20 or even 30 here… I had to cut a number of movies that I’m a big fan of. There are some really, really painful omissions out there.

But I pushed on and worked it out! Click through to check out my list of the Top Ten Sports Movies of all time!

Movies That Everyone Should See: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”

It makes you happy just thinking about it, doesn’t it?

How could it not?

The movie is the living embodiment of youth. It’s bounding with enthusiasm, energy, optimism, individualism, exuberance… The world of Ferris Bueller is one of infinite possibilities.

And each one of them is cooler than the last

News Worth Sharing: Charlie Sheen seems… more rational?

In promotional efforts for his upcoming Comedy Central Roast (Monday Night, 10pm), Charlie Sheen will appear on the “Tonight Show” later this evening, and an NBC will air an interview Matt Lauer did with him tomorrow on the “Today Show”. Now if they could just create the “Tomorrow Show”, he could hit the trifecta.

To promote the interview, NBC released some snippets. In them, Sheen comes across as decidedly… less crazy. Saying things like, the important things to him are the quiet moments with his children, and the entire “Tiger Blood” period just got out of control from him.

While I’m happy for him that he seems to be regaining his sanity, there is a part of me that is sad to see Crazy Charlie go. I was one of the curious few who purchased a ticket to his “Violent Torpedo of Truth Tour”, and I wasn’t disappointed. It certainly was a living train wreck.

So. A brief, but memorable era seems to be coming to an end. Sadly. I’ll be DVRing the Roast (DUH!), but it doesn’t seem if Charlie is ready… at least at this moment… to unleash more adventures of the “Rockstar From Mars”.

At least we’ll always be able to cherish the good times we had.

Now showing on cable: “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”

Sometimes, the greatest sin a movie can commit is having greatness in its grasp and letting it slip away before your eyes.

You watch and you’re realizing… they’re soooo close.

But they never get there.

Such is the case with Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”, which made its debut on HBO Saturday night.

News Worth Sharing: Charlie Sheen claims to have used Steroids for role in “Major League”

“Forget about the curveball Ricky!! Give ‘em the heater!!”

Oh, Charlie Sheen. We love you. Please be crazy forever.

Now Sheen is claiming that, for his role as Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn in the comedy classic “Major League”, he used steroids. “I was already bitchy because — let’s just say that I was enhancing my performance a little bit. It was the only time I ever did steroids. I did them for like six or eight weeks,” he’s quoted as saying. “You can print this, I don’t give a f–k. My fastball went from 79 [mph] to like 85.”

Sheen goes on to say that he quit them after they caused him to lose his temper.

“Well, I wasn’t doing enough to be completely insane — just a little bitchier than normal. When you combine the haircut with all of those comments, you’ve got a recipe for disaster.”

LOL. I want to know what kind of behavior would qualify for Charlie’s criteria of “Completely Insane”. Seriously though, can we forget getting this guy a sitcom and just get him a reality show already? I mean, God! Isn’t it the ultimate no brainer television production decision of all time?

Meanwhile, unlike steroid abuse in REAL Baseball, I think this only adds to my love for “Major League”. My kinda team, Charlie, it’s my kinda team.
