Drew Barrymore

scream

No matter what you may think of the Scream series of films, the Ghost Face mask became an iconic image, a frozen screech contorted into a form not unlike the classic painting “The Scream” by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. The image looked back at us from four movies, and hundreds of Halloween racks for the last 20 years, so when a TV version of Scream was announced for MTV we all wondered if Ghost Face would make the transfer intact, if he made the transfer at all. Now, a new image from the show reveals that Ghost Face has gotten a facelift, something evocative of the original, but with a new spin. (Fashion is not my forte.) (more…)

I’m sure you spend all of your time wondering where the child stars of movies past are now. We’ve compiled a fair amount of before and after pictures for y’all to check out, some of which you probably expect and some of which will be a surprise to you. Let’s get started!

Let’s start with something that we all expect to see. Taylor Momsen is most known for her role as Cindy Lou Who in the 2000 film, How The Grinch Stole Christmas.  Over the course of the years, she landed a role on Gossip Girl and she’s now some badass singer chick.  Or something.  She blames her parents for her shitty attitude and bitchiness, actively tells young girls to twiddle themselves and flashes her tits at concerts.  No big deal.  She’s really matured!

E.T Phoned Home – And Hell Followed

ETSequel022211-thumb-550x307-57780

Steven Spielberg never returned to the world of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial to let us know what happened after E.T. made his way home. What kind of people did Elliott and Gertie grew up to be? Did E.T. get grounded by his alien parents? Did E.T.’s people ever come back?

Robert Blankenheim and Derek Johnson decided that if Spielberg was gonna drop the ball and just leave it lying there that they were gonna pick it up and run with it! ET-X: Extinction, is the sequel Spielberg never made. You’ll enjoy the footage of the now grown-up Drew Barrymore and Henry Thomas mashed together with other favorite alien invasion movies.

I never did buy all that, “E.T.’s a sweet, harmless, lovable guy.” I knew that somewhere in all that gushing, “who could harm a hair on  little E.T.’s head,” was a swarm of alien monsters just waiting to unleash havoc upon the Earth. I bet those Federal agents that had their guns magically turned into radios are still pissed they weren’t allowed to fill that little alien S.O.B. (Son of a Bio-hazard) full of good old fashioned American lead when they had the chance.

What did you think?

I for one welcome our long necked alien masters.

Guess Who….

You will never guess this weeks installment of Guess Who..Our former child star has been against the ropes as of late in an apparent turn to topless boxing(I did NO research, these are assumptions) as a form of income. Hard times happen to most if not 99% of children actors.See what film she was in after the jump (more…)

Whip It Movie Review

              When a problem comes along, you must Whip It. That is basically the WHOLE concept of the film of the same name. Drew Barrymore’s directing debut is done so with a style that is as conceptual as an ordinary movie. Nothing extraordinary. (more…)

Box Office Hypothesis…

So the tallies are in (Kinda), and it appears that ZombieLand has shredded its way up to number one, knocking down 2 week champ CWACOM….As well as the Re-re-re-re-release of ToyStory1&2 3-D EDITION!!!!!(I’m using echo effects on the word edition). Here is the skinny from THR:

Sony grabbed the two top boxoffice rungs Friday, as action comedy “Zombieland” stalked an estimated $9.4 million in its first day and the distributor’s leggy 3D animated feature “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” served up $3.7 million.

The “Zombieland” tally was on the lower end of prerelease expectations, with the Woody Harrelson starrer now challenged to reach a forecasted range for its opening of $25 million-$30 million. But “Meatballs” looks headed for another meaty session and totes cumulative domestic boxoffice of $69.3 million through 15 days in release.

Unfortunately, the Drew Barrymore directed “Whip It” starring the, growing hotter by the day, Ellen Page, roared into a a patch of gravel…Sadly making this cute, dulled razor sharp,girl power, chick-chic flick into 6th place. Possibly developing a cult status for itself, but…Probably not.
