Killing Time August 28, 2014 - What the F*ck, PG-13?

Killing Time August 28, 2014 – What the F*ck, PG-13?

Note: Due to an attempt to keep this column PG-13 (at least by MPAA standards), the word “f*ck” will be replaced by the word “woodchuck”.

This is a rant that’s been long in coming, probably since John Malkovich dropped an F-bomb in the third Transformers movie (classy).  The MPAA, in its infinite wisdom, has decided that you can still maintain a PG-13 rating with one, possibly two,…

Six New The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 1 Posters

Cressida, Natalie Dormer, The Hunger Games Mockingjay Pt. 1

Lionsgate has released six “Rebel Warriors” posters of some of the soldiers who will be fighting super pale Donald Sutherland and his evil fascist regime of oddly dressed people in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 1. Have I mentioned it’s ridiculous to split this book into two films? Wanted to get that in there again. Natalie Dormer’s Cressida (can’t make Natalie Dormer ugly no matter how hard…

Why you would want to do this to yourselves, I have no earthly idea, but if you want to exchange currency for the Blu Ray of the fourth film in the Transformers saga, it will hit stores on September 30th and debuting digitally two weeks prior.  Paramount released the extras and there are a lot of them and all almost guaranteed to be more interesting than the film.

My Favorite Scene: Dead Poets Society (1989) “Oh Captain, My Captain”

My Favorite Scene: Dead Poets Society (1989) “Oh Captain, My Captain”

dead_poets_society2

We continue to pick scenes from the late Robin Williams’ best works with 1989’s Dead Poets Society.  This is, in my opinion, Williams’ best film.  His unorthodox English-teaching methods exhort his students to seize the day and to love words.

The right words, strung together can lift the spirit to unmatched heights.  The wrong…

The Emmys have a long history of making me throw things even more than the Oscars do, so I normally do not watch them, but since this was Breaking Bad’s last year, I caught the show.  Seth Meyers did a nice job hosting.  Matthew McConaughey took no end of abuse for encroaching on television.  The night’s highlight, though, which…
