Dan Aykroyd bashed the Ghostbusters reboot
June 5th, 2017 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

As soon as the trailer came out for the Ghostbusters reboot, everyone bashed it. Now a year later one of the original movie’s stars is bashing it.

Dan Aykroyd told Sunday Brunch on Britain’s Channel 4 that they spent too much on it. He said, “The director [Paul Feig], he spent too much on it and he didn’t shoot scenes we suggested to him. Several scenes that were going to be needed, he said, ‘No, we don’t need them.’ And then we tested the movie and they needed them, and he had to go back — about $30 to $40 million in reshoots.”

Sony told The Hollywood Reporter on the other hand said they only spent $3 to $4 million on the reshoots. The studio also said they were happy with the director even though, Aykroyd said, “it cost too much, and Sony does not like to lose money. It made a lot of money around the world, but it just cost too much, making it economically not feasible to do another one.”

UPDATE: Dan Aykroyd took to WhoSay to explain what he meant, he said, “”Paul Feig made a good movie and had a superb cast and plenty of money to do it. We just wish he had been more inclusive to the originators. It cost everyone as it is unlikely Kristen, Leslie, Melissa and Kate will ever reprise their roles as Ghostbusters which is sad.” He’s right, if they stuck more to the original there might be a sequel.
When it comes to the he said/she said, the loudest message that Sony sent out about this is that they cancelled their plans for a sequel. I think that says something, don’t you?


I ❤️ The Emoji Movie trailer!
May 16th, 2017 under James Corden, Movies, Sir Patrick Stewart/Sir Ian McKellen. [ Comments: 2 ]

The first trailer is out for The Emoji Movie and I am anything but 😩 about the ️🎞️. It looks like it will make us 😆 from the beginning until the end. Plus, there are so many ✨ in it like TJ Miller, James Corden, Steven Wright and of course Sir Patrick Stewart as 💩. I love that scene of him coming out of the 🚽 with his son. So 😁!

I don’t know about you, but I am going to 🏃🏻 to the 🎦 to see on July 28th because it looks like pure 😹! I will even splurge on the 🍿.


Curtis Armstrong ruins an iconic Revenge of the Nerds moment!
May 5th, 2017 under 80s, Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Remember that belching contest that Booger won in Revenge of the Nerds, and you thought that Curtis Armstrong was the greatest burper of all time? Turns out it was all movie magic.

Alexandra Cruz asked him on Twitter if the burp was real, and he Tweeted back, “Burp wasn’t real. It’s a mix of a man belching and a camel achieving orgasm. Really. Try keeping that out of your mind next time u see it!” Is it wrong that I want to know how they captured the audio of a camel orgasming? Or maybe not. Or maybe yes?

What I do want to know is what other shocking reveals he will make in his memoir Revenge of the Nerd that is out in July. I wonder what other interesting stories he has from his days on the set of Risky Business, the Revenge of the Nerds franchise, Better Off Dead, One Crazy Summer, Moonlighting, Supernatural and many more.


A movie theater is handing out barf bags to its patrons
March 23rd, 2017 under Movies. [ Comments: 2 ]

My dad raised me on Horror movies like Snuff, so there is very little I can see on the big screen that will make me sick. While that is the case for me, that is not the case for people going to see the French film Raw at the Nuart in Los Angeles. The cannibal feature has had such an effect on movie goers that The Hollywood Reporter says that several people have fainted and one even threw up. After the latter incident, the theater started to hand out custom made barf bags. No word if anyone has used them, but better safe than sorry.

Part of me is tempted to see this movie, but then the other part of me is like why? Why does a movie have to be so disgusting that people feel the need to throw up. There is a fine line, and part of me thinks we should not cross it. I have see films like the Human Centipede trilogy, the Hostels and many more, and they know when to stop. Maybe this filmmaker should have done the same.

Although, I have to say I respect that crap out of the fact that filmmaker behind this film is a woman. That’s right, the person behind the camera is Julia Ducournau. Proving that women can gross out men just as much as they can gross us out.

Do you want to see Raw or will you stick to movies like CHiPs that are so bad they make you sick that you spent money on them?


Am I the only one not feeling Beauty and the Beast?
January 30th, 2017 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Disney finally released the full trailer for Beauty and the Beast and it doesn’t have the same magic as the animated classic to me.
I have to admit, this is not my favorite Disney musical. For the last year, my niece has made me suffer through it several times when I babysit her. Therefore, I figured I would give it a try. But I just can’t get into it. The casting seems wrong for me. Emma Watson is just not Belle to me. I can’t get behind her in the role, and she is a big part of the film.
How do you feel about? Are you going to run and see it on March 17th or wait until the kid in your life forces you to watch it?
