Chris Pratt Might Be Starring In The New Indiana Jones Reboot, So Cue All The Jokes About His Big Whip

Chris Pratt Might Be Starring In The New Indiana Jones Reboot, So Cue All The Jokes About His Big Whip

I have this theory. Basically, all of the big wigs of Hollywood gather on Sunday nights, pop some two-buck chuck from Trader Joe’s, wrap on their Snuggies, play some T-Swift in the background, and read Crushable. That’s the only way they could have decided that Chris Pratt would make a good Indiana Jones. After all, we suggested it first. More »

5 Reasons Paranoia Is Unintentionally Hilarious

5 Reasons Paranoia Is Unintentionally Hilarious

No one was more pumped than I was to see Paranoia, the new tech-thriller that stars the likes of Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford, Amber Heard, and Gary Oldman. So you can imagine my surprise when I realized that this movie isn’t at all what I’d hoped it would be. What it wants to be is the kind of movie that has your eyes darting back and forth across the screen, just narrowly keeping up with everything. What it actually is, is one of the most unexpectedly comedic movies that I have ever seen. Here are five reasons why. More »

Virgin Viewing: The ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy

Virgin Viewing: The 'Star Wars' Trilogy

13 Actors Who Could Have Played Iconic Roles

We all know and love these characters, and their actors’ portrayals of them were so perfect, it can be hard to imagine anyone else playing them. But guess what? If things had gone a little differently, Alan Rickman might not have landed Snape, Michael J. Fox may not have donned Marty’s orange vest, and Julia Roberts may not have become one of the world’s most well-known prostitutes. That’s right: Each of these characters were originally pitched to different actors, and in some cases, were even recast midway through shooting. What other iconic characters might have ended up being played by totally different actors? Read on to find out! More »

‘Cowboys & Aliens’: The Trouble with Loving the Movie’s World But Not Its Characters

'Cowboys & Aliens': The Trouble with Loving the Movie's World But Not Its Characters

Cowboys & Aliens is probably the movie I’ve most been looking forward to in 2011: The so-crazy-it-might-work blending of sharpshooters and interstellar invaders, the comic book pedigree, Jon Favreau at the helm while Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford team up. And I liked it a lot; it was funny, suspenseful, and had a good mystery — and those aliens were damn scary. But it didn’t blow me away, and I’m still confused as to why. If I had to make a guess, I’d say it’s partly because I didn’t really care about the characters. More »
