Top Ten: 21st Century Movie Turkeys

Alice in Wonderland - Helena Bonham Carter

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Today is Thanksgiving in America (happy Thanksgiving everyone!) and therefore it had to be time to bring out the turkey! Rather than the feathered variety (have you tried to find actual turkeys in a film? I have. It’s not easy) it’s the movie turkey variety I’m interested in. I thought it would be a nice […]

The Crap Shoot: Top Ten Terrible Films That Made A Lot Of Money

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

If may seem entirely apparent that in order to succeed you need quality. A dash of talent and invention here, a wonderful peace of transitory execution there, that’s what maketh a movie young Padawan (alas Geroge Lucas doesn’t make this list even though he really should). But looking around us it soon becomes apparent that […]



Adam Sandler’s Jack and Jill Sweeps the Board at the Razzie Awards 2012 – ‘Winners’ List

We were all a bit disappointed when the Razzie Awards moved away from the Oscars to end up on April Fool’s day but fortunately the awards have now been held and just as we thought, Adam Sandler’s Jack and Jill has swept the board picking up awards in all 10 categories which include Worst Actor, […]



The Box-Office – Chronicle Unsaddles War Horse And Flies Its Way Into The Top Spot

chronicle_2-560x302

With the exception of the overlooked Young Adult and Martha Marcy May Marlene everything seems pretty much in order this week. Chronicle goes straight in at number one, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island pulling in the family audience and Jack and Jill gaining a well deserved and generous haul of almost a million pounds. Wait, […]



Jack and Jill Review

Jack-and-Jill-2011

I know by this point everyone expects any review of Jack and Jill to be a terribly scathing affair and there’s no doubt it deserves as much. But there’s more to it than that. It’s not just a film about Adam Sandler in a woman suit and Al Pacino slumming it like successful career choices […]



The Box-Office – The Cloons Pulls in the Crowds but Is Pipped To The Post by War Horse

The-Descendants

It’s been a more successful week than I thought. But only just. There’s been highs (The Descendants), lows (Like Crazy) and The Grey did so okay for itself that I’ll hardly mention it throughout. Yes it’s been an entirely average week at the box-office, so set your sights low and read on, because d’you know […]



The Razzie Awards Move to April Fools’ Day

Razzie

We’re used to the Razzie Awards taking place just before the Oscars paying tribute to the worst movies of the past 12 months but the organisers this year have moved the coveted award ceremony to April Fools’ Day, April 1st. Previous winners include Sandra Bullock for the truly 2010 dreadful movie, All About Steve which […]



Twice the Horror. Posters for Adam Sandler’s Jack and Jill Surface

Jack and Jill

Be afraid. Be very afraid. Here are the US and international posters (via IMP Awards) for the new Adam Sandler comedy, Jack and Jill. Yep, for those out there who don’t feel like you get your bang for bucks during a normal Sandler comedy, The Waterboy star plays the dual role of identical twins. Jack […]



New Jack & Jill Trailer Arrives – Heaven Help Us

Jack & Jill

“From the Producers of Just Go With It and Grown Ups”  are not words you want to hear from any trailer. What you want to hear is that all concerned with said projects have been strapped to a chair and made to watch Magnolia, Chinatown and Memento until they understand what a proper film looks […]



Adam Sandler and Madam Sandler star in Jack and Jill Trailer

jack and jill al pacino

Everyone knows how this one goes, Jack and Jill went up the hill, to fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill came tumbling after. But did you know that there’s a second verse to the nursery rhyme which time and an over cautious society has deemed unworthy of […]



Adam Sandler’s Jack and Jill Has a Familiar Director

I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed Ben Stiller’s dramatic turn in Noah Baumbach’s Greenberg (I really can’t tell you -I’m staring down the barrel of the embargo gun currently), but Adam Sandler’s role in Judd Apatow’s Funny People brought about shades of Tony Hancock to the usual gross out comedies of recent years, […]
