Fantasy Island Review

Rating:  2/10 Cast: Michael Peña as Mr. Roarke Maggie Q as Elena Lucy Hale as Melanie Austin Stowell as Sonja Jimmy O. Yang as Brax Ryan Hansen as JD Michael Rooker as Morgan Directed and co-written by Jeff Wadlow Fantasy Island Review: It’s been 15 years since audiences were first introduced to the mind of writer/director Jeff Wadlow in the critically lambasted Cry/Wolf and in the years since he’s tried his hand at everything from 2008’s martial arts actioner Never Back Down to 2013’s grap...

Watch the gloriously brutal trailer for Danzig’s horror movie directorial debut "Verotika"

Famed "Mother" crooner and former ex-lead-singer of the Misfits Glenn Danzig has finally directed his first film, and of course it's a horror anthology. The movie's called Verotika, and while I'm slightly disappointed he didn't name it Die Die My Darling, this absolutely bonkers minute-long trailer makes up for it. The trailer doesn't really tell you what the movies about, per se, but it definitely gives you some gorey, self-indulgent, eerily terrifying B-movie vibes—though wheth...

we movie to canada: wmtc annual movie awards, 2018-19 edition

Time to change things up. I've (finally) gotten tired of my silly movie award categories, and need a change. I decided to go with a conventional one-to-five rating scale. But I wanted to use a good symbol, something other than stars (too common), thumbs-up (too cliched) or a maple leaf (too patriotic). I'm using a symbol that's very meaningful to me. (To be honest, it was between ☮ and this, but I could only get the peace sign to work in Blogger.)Here are the movies and series I watched between ...

Behold Ford’s Futuristic Shopping Cart

This author absolutely loves Ford Europe’s extracurricular mobility projects, in the same way someone might enjoy Tommy Wiseau’s The Room or watching Orson Welles’ drunken wine advertisements for Paul Masson. While certainly not as good as the automaker’s noise-canceling doghouse, lane-keeping bed or slow-moving Carr-E puck (my all-time favorite “mobility innovation”), Ford’s new shopping cart isn’t far behind in terms […] The post Behold Ford’s Futuristic Shopping Cart appeared first on The Tru...

This Trailer Proves ‘The Fresh Prince’ Makes A Damn Good Dramatic Movie

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air gets a 2019 update in this fan-made trailer by Morgan Cooper — it’s dark, dramatic, and I’m super down for it. What would happen if Will Smith made The Fresh Prince today? Bel-Air, a story of a kid from Philly whose life got turned upside-down... in 2019. A fan-made film. FIELD NOTES FROM THE FUNNY OR DIE STAFF In the current timeline who knows what can happen when you wake up in the morning. Is Donald Trump President of the United States? Check. Can you get d...

Is ‘The Room’ Director Tommy Wiseau Making a Big Shark Movie Called ‘Big Shark’?

Hey, what do you think Tommy Wiseau has been up to? If you guessed “Making a shark movie,” you are correct. The auteur behind The Room has revealed a look at his new movie, which is called, appropriately enough, Big Shark. The film is set in New Orleans, and focuses on three firefighters trying to save the world…from a big shark. Or maybe, just maybe, this is all a big joke. More on Big Shark below! Bloody Disgusting has the details on Big Shark, courtesy of the German site Film Flutter, and...

What Happens When You Fake Social Media Numbers

Jack Black Doc ‘The Insufferable Groo’, About a Tommy Wiseau-Style Filmmaker, Finds U.S. Distribution

Tommy Wiseau. James Nguyen. Neil Breen. Connoisseurs of “so bad, they’re good” movies are familiar with these infamous directors, but have you heard of Stephen Groo?

LOL: ‘The Dark Knight’ Interrogation Recreated with ‘The Room’ stars Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero

Back in March of this year, Tommy Wiseau put together an audition tape where he campaigned to take the role of The Joker in the then-recently announced origin movie focusing on the Batman villain. It was mostly a hilarious way to promote the new movie Best F(r)iends Vol. 1 that he made with The Room co-star Greg Sestero. Now that the movie is coming to home video, they’re digging into Batman again, but they’re really upping the ante this time. Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero got together to recre...

Cinematic train wreck, “The Room”, is now on YouTube in its entirety

The Room has been ranked with Plan 9 From Outer Space as a strong contender for the “best” worst movie ever made — and it’s now available in its entirety on YouTube. Written, directed, and starring Tommy Wiseau, The Room belongs in the same category as Plan 9, and Coven (which was immortalized in the 1999 documentary American Movie) as a paean to moviemaking by people who have no idea how to make a movie. The combination of passion and ineptitude is what made The Room a cult classic after its...

The Disaster Artist, the Book Loosely Inspiring the Homonymous Movie

The Disaster Artist is a movie directed by James Franco. He played Tommy Wiseau, the weird self-made producer, director, and writer of the cult movie The Room. His brother, Dave Franco, played Greg Sestero, an actor-model who is credited as the book’s author, but my feeling is that a ghostwriter made it. Doesn’t matter because […] The post The Disaster Artist, the Book Loosely Inspiring the Homonymous Movie appeared first on Rodolfo Grimaldi Blog.
