10 Reasons Why Val Kilmer Is a Total Badass

Article: 10 Reasons Why Val Kilmer Is a Total Badass

When casting a gruff, scotch-sipping United States Army general, who else could you turn to but Val Kilmer? In The Spoils of Babylon —premiering Thursday, Jan. 9 at 10/9c— Val once again proves he’s a total badass. But if that isn’t enough to persuade you, here’s 10 more reasons why. 10. He Is Your Huckleberry…

What to watch on IFC tonight: Batman, Batman and more Batman

Article: What to watch on IFC tonight: Batman, Batman and more Batman

Spend the night arguing about whether Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer or George Clooney was the best Batman when we show back-to-back- Batman movies. We’re kicking things off with George Clooney suiting up to play Gotham’s Dark Knight in Joel Shumacher’s take on “Batman & Robin” at 5:15 p.m. ET/4:15 p.m. CT. Batman faces off against…

The Batman is coming to IFC

Article: The Batman is coming to IFC

Tonight at 7:15 p.m. ET we are lighting up the sky over Gotham with the Bat Signal, because the Dark Knight is coming to IFC. Tim Burton’s 1989 “Batman” is the big-screen response to the serious (and seriously violent) revisionist comic book tales of the ’80s. The film reimagines Gotham as a foreboding industrial metropolis…

Five more ’80s films that deserve a commercial homage

Article: Five more ’80s films that deserve a commercial homage

Say what you will about Matthew Broderick’s “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”-inspired ad for Honda, but it got everyone talking about his 1986 debut as the slacker hero. Given the response (mostly positive) to the ad across just about every online social network, it’s safe to say that “Matthew’s Day Off” will go down as a…

Francis Ford Coppola’s “Twixt” trailer bites in the best way possible

Article: Francis Ford Coppola’s “Twixt” trailer bites in the best way possible

This looks flat-out fantastic. Here is the trailer for Francis Ford Coppola‘s “Twixt.” So far, I like everything about this movie. I dug the funky photos. I’m totally intrigued by Coppola’s ambitious plan to remix the movie live in theaters as part of a special roadshow tour. And now I really like this trailer, which…

New photos from Francis Ford Coppola’s “Twixt” reveal Val Kilmer and Edgar Allan Poe

Article: New photos from Francis Ford Coppola’s “Twixt” reveal Val Kilmer and Edgar Allan Poe

The questions definitely outnumber the answers surrounding Francis Ford Coppola’s upcoming film “Twixt,” but let’s face it: everything new that we learn about the “gothic indie” has been a pleasant discovery. Last week, we were treated to the very first photo from “Twixt” — a behind-the-scenes shot of Coppola and actress Elle Fanning, who was…

Francis Ford Coppola targets San Diego Comic-Con for “Twixt” reveal

Article: Francis Ford Coppola targets San Diego Comic-Con for “Twixt” reveal

Legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola is coming back to San Diego Comic-Con. This will be the director’s first appearance at the show since back in 1992 when he was pimping “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” so here’s your chance to ask all those burning questions you still have about his 1996 Robin Williams vehicle, “Jack.” Coppola will…

“MacGruber” and “Holy Rollers”

Article: “MacGruber” and “Holy Rollers”

If you saw any the SNL sketches or the Super Bowl commercial featuring the nimrod government agent MacGruber — basically Richard Dean Anderson’s MacGyver by way of “The Jerk” hero Navin Johnson — you know to expect from the film that bears his name: five or six inspired bits, surrounded by padding. MacGruber (Will Forte)…

Seven notably high concept movies.

Article: Seven notably high concept movies.

The “high concept” movie (a much-abused term) is one whose premise can be summed up in a sentence, if not within the title itself — for instance, what happens when a bored married couple’s “Date Night” goes wrong? Wacky fun! The ideas is that the easy hook goes over well with your stereotypical movie executive…

No Laughing Matter

Article: No Laughing Matter

On the first night of SXSW at the “Predators” sneak preview, someone leaned over to me and asked “Have you been to Comic-Con?” I knew where the question was headed, and although he was speaking specifically about the presentation we were about to see, where no full film was shown and the studio carefully curated…

“MacGruber” explodes on to SXSW

Article: “MacGruber” explodes on to SXSW

For a week night in Austin, it looked a little more like a Saturday from New York as Will Forte, Kristen Wiig and director Jorma Taccone (of the Lonely Island) walked the red carpet at the 2010 SXSW premiere of their new action comedy, “MacGruber.” Joining them for the event were co-stars Ryan Phillipe, Val…

“MacGruber” avoids a bomb.

Article: “MacGruber” avoids a bomb.

Reviewed at the 2010 SXSW Film Festival. To answer the immediate question at hand, “MacGruber” is in fact the funniest “Saturday Night Live” spinoff since “Wayne’s World” in 1992. But as anyone who follows such things knows, that isn’t necessarily high praise. In the years in the wake of the success of “Wayne’s World,” many…

Werner Herzog likens Nick Cage’s performace to jazz improv

Article: Werner Herzog likens Nick Cage’s performace to jazz improv

I’ve been hating on Werner Herzog’s “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” for may months now, but hating something in theory without eventually seeing it for yourself feels cheaper than the ill-conceived title of this film. I finally saw it and there are some things to like. Still, as a huge admirer of Abel…
