Ah, “Dragonball Evolution.” The movie that made us question our life choices, our taste in cinema, and whether we accidentally walked into a parody film.
Hogwarts is old news now that Reddit user u/reddimatz has reimagined the Harry Potter crew as the cast of a nineties sitcom with the help of AI.
“This is pretty much the worst video ever made” is what a large number of audiences said after seeing Napoleon Dynamite in theaters, but the line wasn’t an accurate summation of the film it’s from. Jon Heder, the actor behind the film’s title character, was poised for comedic supremacy in the mid-2000s, embodying the awkward outsider character perfectly. So why is he a seeming outsider in Hollywood these days?
Jeepers, creepers, where’d ya get those peepers? Yeah, that song still triggers my fight or flight too, being one of the first horror films to truly keep me awake at night as a kid. Gina Phillips was an instrumental part in that, playing the main character Trish in the first movie. With the recent resurgence of her on-screen brother Justin Long in Barbarian, where is Trish at these days?
Video game movies have some of the worst track records out there, and Nintendo’s original Plumber has one of the earliest bombs on record. That’s a lot on the line over thirty years later with even more games and additions to the Mario lore popping up in between, with not just Mario but Luigi and even Toad now having their own critically loved games as well. So did Illumination deliver on the new gamble of taking Nintendo’s Italian Stallion into an animated direction?
Katie Leung stole our hearts as the adorable Cho Chang, Harry Potter’s very first love interest in Goblet of Fire. She was cute, sweet, kind, and really seemed into Harry, lamenting that she was unable to attend the Yule Ball with him as Cedric had asked her first.
The original Potterheads are getting older and introducing a new generation of muggles to the magic. And we know that if you need to have a cozy weekend to yourself, watching all of the Harry Potter movies is the only way to go. While the golden trio of Harry, Hermione, and Ron normally get all the credit, they wouldn’t have done it without the help of amazing supporting characters.
Whether you read the books first or went straight for the movies, you couldn’t imagine anyone other than Evanna Lynch portraying the fearless Ravenclaw with an endless supply of words of wisdom, Luna Lovegood. Grab your broomstick and see what magic Evanna has been brewing since the Battle of Hogwarts was won.
We all have our favorite line. We all have our favorite scene. We would all add it to the list of our favorite movies of all time. The 1993 family movie Mrs. Doubtfire is still one of the best comedies that will warm your heart then make you laugh until you can’t breathe. For actress Lisa Jakub, it was a dream for a fourteen-year-old to be on set with actors Sally Field, Pierce Brosnan, and Robin Williams. Help is on the way, dear, to see what Lisa’s been up to since starring in one of the most memorable comedies of the 90s that still holds up today.
Look, there are some people that, if cited as a favorite character or quoted/emulated, can have red flags the size of an interstate billboard. Even if the character is the protagonist of the movie, it doesn’t matter because while they might be the focus of the story, they’re not great people in their actions and deeds.
Superman Lives and its varied production issues before being shut down are (and were) a movie unto themselves, but it just gets more and more insane the closer you look at it. There were so many different pieces of this film that were at odds with each other it’s a wonder it even got as far as it did.
Versatile French creatives have been the toast of the artistic community for ages. Actors, musicians, directors, filmmakers and more make up this iconic category. An important part of this class is Julie Delpy. As an actress, director, screenwriter, and musician, Delpy perfectly encapsulates the French artist. But it was her iconic role in Before Sunrise that made her a memorable icon. The film was released in 1995, so what has Delpy been doing in the last 27 years?
Every Sunday growing up my father would turn on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off before promptly falling asleep in his armchair, and that’s how I discovered Mia Sara. So, with everything going for her as a young spark with a quickly growing flame, why did she seemingly burn out?
