There have been several webisodes of Zach Galifianakis interviewing stars whilst in between two ferns, but this one might be the best. The interview is with Bradley Cooper who co-stars with Galifianakis in The Hangover. The Hangover is in theatres June 5.
Sasha Stone from Awards Daily recently posted my article 6 Reasons Why ‘Precious’ Will Be Nominated for Best Picture and it has sparked an intense debate about race and movies in America. A lot of the initial responses were very anti-Mo’Nique because her body of work at this point has been less than commendable. the_movie_guy […]
After scanning through my RSS and Twitter feeds there isn’t a whole lot to write about today, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to shamelessly plug some of the pages on Film Misery that you may not have visited yet. Check out the Career Appreciation page where you can vote for which Chaplin film […]
Another summer weekend, another film looks to steal number one at the Box Office. At this rate it’s going to be whichever film somehow manages to hang on to number one for more than one week. It probably won’t be until later in the summer that that happens. Here are Three to See for the […]
This is an old video, but I heard the song on the radio and it made me want to see it again: Here’s hoping “30 Rock” stays on the air for a very long time.
Apologies for the lack of activity this weekend. Apparently my ISP has blocked my site, preventing me access from updating or even viewing it at home. This should be remedied soon. Look for a new Daily Trivia tomorrow as well as reviews of Angels and Demons and more on Chaplin to come this week.
Over in France, the first day has wrapped up at the Cannes Film Festival and so far only one film has been officially screened, the out-of-competition Up. It is the first time in the festival’s 62 year history that an animated film has opened the competition, and judging by initial word, it may be one […]
The start of the Cannes Film Festival is just a few hours away and if you’re like me you are probably out there scanning the blogs and the social networking sites, wishing you could be there yourself. I thought I would make keeping up with Cannes easier by compiling the best sites on the net […]
As I reported in yesterday’s “Other News” update, Star Trek is already controlling over 80% of online ticket sales. I wouldn’t be surprised if it did better than the other top 10 films this weekend combined, even with Wolverine still in the mix and the fact that the “X-Men” film is in about 250 more […]
Poem written by a second grader (as told by my friend who is an elementary school teacher). Roses are red, Violets are blue, No one can stop the dynamic duo of Batman and Robin. Someone give this kid a Pulitzer.
Here at Film Misery we finally have the first of many contests up and running. Every month there will be a new theme for daily trivia. There will be a new question posted everyday (Mon-Sat.), and there is a form on the page that you can use to submit your answer. Even if you’re not […]
Film Misery has now been online for a few months (about 1 month full time). Many of the links are getting completed day by day and I hope to have more pages online by the end of May. Under the ‘Film History’ heading you’ll find a link for Career Appreciation. My goal for that is […]
Everybody turns their attention to the Box Office this weekend as the summer movie season officially kicks off. The total gross this weekend could outline what Hollywood can expect this year. As I noted in my predictions, I think Summer ’09 is going to be huge. Three to See This Weekend: 1) X-Men Origins: Wolverine […]
“Yo Gabba Gabba” always intrigues me. It looks like all the producers are flyin’ high on PCP when they come up with the ideas. Anyway, Jack Black looks like he has way too much fun in a guest spot on the show. Love the undersized orange jumpsuit.
It has been a decent first third of the year. We are about to enter the blockbuster time of year where it seems every weekend there is a film that makes over $50 million domestic. Up to this point in the year, the movie box office seems to be the only industry that is booming, […]
Rarely do you see an April weekend (or any weekend) with almost all of the new releases having positive Rotten Tomato ratings. If you listen to critics, it should be a good weekend. Three to See: 1) State of Play (Wide) Directed By: Kevin MacDonald Rotten Tomatoes: 83% | Metacritic: 61 This seems like it […]
I know Easter is over, but this video is still pretty hilarious. Gosh how I love those sensational Easter treats.
One wide release and one limited release are the films I’m looking forward to this week. Neither of which are going to win at the Box Office because there are so many teen girls who will come out in droves to see Miley Montana, or whatever that singin’ gal is called. Three Two to See: […]
By now everyone knows the hub-bub about the upcoming 20th Century Fox film, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, being leaked online early. Fox 411’s Roger Friedman had the balls to post a review of the pirated version and he’s been chastised all over the internet for it. Well, I decided to go one further and post the […]
