Victor Frankenstein Is Like Watching Your Cute Friend Get High and Blowtorch Their Own Face

Seriously. Did you ever have a ridiculously good-looking friend who was also brilliant and talented, but they made some really bad choices and threw it all away? Victor Frankenstein is like that.

Male Film Critic Savagely Mauled By 'P.C. Twitter Goons'

Dear, dear friends, we gather together today to mourn the untimely disemboweling of Jeffrey Wells, film critic, rent asunder “like a wildebeest being surrounded and torn apart by hyenas or wild dogs” by the “P.C.

The Good Dinosaur Makes the “Coming of Age” Story Brand New Again

10 movies that used the same exact set as other movies

Hollywood recycles plots and story lines all the time. The same actors and actresses and directors are put in movies over and over. And the same sets are used to film completely different movies. It’s an incestuous industry. Sometimes when you’re watching a movie and you can’t quite put your finger down on why a scene… »Tuesday 1:55pm11/24/15 1:55pm

Peter Sellers Is the March Hare In The Most Demented Alice in Wonderland of All

There have been a lot of adaptations of Alice in Wonderland over the years, including a Disney animated version, an X-rated musical, and Tim Burton’s lavish CG fantasia (which is getting a sequel!).
