On this episode of Bad Gay Movies, Dan and Bil were joined by our beloved special guest Ryan G. Hinds for a look at Roland Emmerich's Stonewall!
While it may follow in the tone of his first directorial effort from ten years ago, Garden State, Zach Braff’s Kickstarter funded Wish I Was Here leans a little too hard on the melodrama and it never feels as assured.
Enter for a chance to win a pair of passes to an advance screening of Wish I Was Here in Toronto or Vancouver on Wednesday, July 16th or in Winnipeg, Calgary, or Edmonton on Thursday, July 24th, courtesy of Dork Shelf and eOne Films!
This week brings looks at some leftover spooks, 'splosions, and some romance as we transition from Halloween in to the deeper recesses of fall. We look at Roland Emmerich's latest blockbuster White House Down, John Carpenter's underrated In the Mouth of Madness, James's Wan's surprise megahit The Conjuring, Richard Linklater's trilogy capping Before Midnight, and Neil Jordan's unjustly slept-on Byzantium.
With all the news coming out of SDCC about Marvel’s Phase 2 and 3 films, we can’t help but think about a long-shelved Marvel project that’s near-and-dear to our hearts: The Runaways. Here's our dream casting!
White House Down is both vastly better than this year's other President-in-peril flick and about as goofy and endearingly silly as one would expect from director Roland Emmerich, delivering his best all around work since Independence Day. You know, that other movie that destroyed the White House.
Oz the Great and Powerful isn’t a particularly great movie overall, but it’s never terribly unwatchable or even all that uninteresting or lacking in entertainment value. It’s the curious case of a film that just has a lot of missteps along the way that add up to an unsatisfactory whole. It's a whishy-washy, sanitized blockbuster that fails to be truly magical.
We sit down with actor, writer, and director Zach Braff to talk about his dual role in Sam Raimi's hotly anticipated Oz the Great and Powerful and working with Raimi on making another tale in one of cinema’s most iconic locations, the multimedia based nature of his performance as a talking and flying primate with a jaunty hat, his memories of the original Oz, and why there hasn’t really been a follow up yet to Garden State just yet.
