Copyright Trolls Get Videos Pulled For Using The Word 'Pixels' [UPDATED]

The video “Pantone Pixels,” published in 2011, was an independent art project that used a swath of colors to illustrate a picture of the creator’s parents. Last week, Vimeo took it down. Turns out it was too similar to “Pixels,” a 2015 movie starring Adam Sandler. » 8/09/15 4:30pm 8/09/15 4:30pm

Adam Sandler Has a Hell of a Lot to Answer For

Pixels reminded us all just how shitty an actor Adam Sandler can be. But it’s worse than you probably realize. As a star, and also as a producer, Sandler has created a string of horrible, vapid comedies that have helped make us all dumber. His movies are “films,” in the same sense that colonoscopies produce films.

Adam Sandler Has Never Ruined A Movie As Much As He Ruins Pixels

We’ve suspected that Pixels would be an almighty disaster ever since we saw the first trailer, but it’s actually worse than we feared. Director Chris Columbus is clearly trying to create another great fantasy adventure, but he’s hamstrung by a short-sighted script.

That "Adam Sandler as Dracula" movie isn't as horrendous as you feared

If you're like most people, you probably hear the words "Adam Sandler plays Dracula," and your brain just shuts down. It's a protective reflex. Otherwise, the Madness would seep in through your visual cortex, and soon your brain would be utterly twisted into gooey knots, like Pizza Hut breadsticks.

Zookeeper is a horror movie about evolutionary biology

Everybody knows that talking-animal movies are really about the human condition. Marmaduke, Cats & Dogs, Yogi Bear... they all reflect human personalities filtered through the lens of silly animal stereotypes. They're like a kind of heightened reality. Or maybe they just celebrate our all-too-human masochism. » 7/08/11 8:30am 7/08/11 8:30am
