Hollywood comedian/actor Pauly Shore loses everything: his house, nobody in Hollywood wants to represent him, he moves back home with his mom and is now parking cars at the Comedy Store. Then one night when he's up in his mom's loft, a dead famous comedian appears who tells Pauly to kill himself cause he'll go down as a comedic genius who died before his time. Pauly then fakes his own death, and the media goes crazy. Celebrities are talking about him on MTV and girls are fighting over him on Jerry Springer. It's everything that he wanted...his plan worked. A week or so later the LAPD is tipped off about his whereabouts and they break down the door of the seedy motel room that he's hiding out in and throw him in LA County's celebrity wing.

Will B (de) wrote: This one is better than Disaster.... But not by much. Why? Because it still is stupid. There is a point of stupid funny and stupid oh my god peel my eyes out retarded. The only reason I laughed was the spot on portrayal of Kristen no expression Stewart. Also that there was some pretty funny parts that made fun of twilight... My most disliked movie franchise to ever be thought of. I would say watch this just for that reason, but probably shouldn't.

The rest of the movie is a pretty good albeit generic yakuza flick, Riki Takeuchi is a goofball and Miike basically gutted AGITATOR to make this sparse action film. But you could put FTB over just about anything (Twilight + Satori = probably pretty good) and it'd be entertaining. You take them away and it's a forgettable flick by a great director.
Sean D (fr) wrote: I can't believe this actually has a good rating, it's so campy. It's a cheesy and campy lesser known horror series, the first of which, and the only one in the '80s. The basic plot which had a stupid backstory that doesn't explain anything is basically about some horrid deformed fetus looking Alien reject from the Alien series called Pumpkinhead. His origins date back to the '50s from what we can tell. The beginning of the story doesn't explain anything. Later you come to realize that Pumpkinhead has no real explainable origins, at least in the first film. He's some serial killer who gets summoned through the use of the requestor's blood and will annihilate whoever you want but you become sort of one with him which is a huge problem and leads to the climax of the film. The plot is original. I believe Pumpkinhead becomes immortal as a result, to an extent until the summoner dies or he completes his mission. The acting is terrible and hilarious and the film is campy, you have to like it. Great film. The lead-up is horrible. Some random kid gets run over, not really. But apparently he's dead so the kid's dad learns about Pumpkinhead and summons him, then can't stand the torture he's going through (that seems to be the explanation for his later sympathy and change of heart) and wants Pumpkinhead dead or it's that he didn't expect everything to go down so violently.
MJS M (mx) wrote: Lars Von Trier?s second feature film, this film is extremely experimental and of little interest otherwise. Shot on cheap black and white film stock (parts of it make Clerks look like Black Hawk Down), the film features Von Trier playing himself writing a movie intercut with images of the movie he?s writing. The plot about the writing very boring and the story that their writing is incoherently disjointed by the nature of the project. The film is filled with odd quirks like the decision to have the film?s title as a watermark in the upper left corner of the screen throughout the whole film for no conceivable reason. I checked it out to cross a Von Trier flick off my ?to see? list (been investigating the guy since his latest caused a stir at Cannes) but this thing is a big miss.

SagaciousFrank (mx) wrote: 'Gone Baby Gone' is an exceptionally well told story. An adaptation of a novel of the same name (which I haven't read), it tells the story of an investigation into the abduction of a young girl investigated by both the police and an amateur private detective of sorts (Casey Affleck). The first time I saw this, I wasn't all that impressed. Then a couple of years later I watch it again for a second time with the girlfriend (her first time) and loved it. It's like I watched a totally different film the second time around. I hadn't forgotten how it ended, but maybe I was paying attention to the middle. Ben Affleck does an excellent job behind the camera - clearly much more capable at directing and acting - and his younger Casey Affleck clearly benefits from Ben's strong direction, supported by an all superb cast of actors. One not to miss. 4.5/5

I am a huge, huge Metallica fan with my favorite songs being "Sad but True", "Enter Sandman", "Master of Puppets", "One", "For Whom the Bell Tolls", and "Creeping Death". It looks awesome from the trailers and I'm surprised that this movie will be Rated R. It's also in 3-D which is a little unnecessary in my opinion and I hope that Metallica performs Sad but True. I will definitely be seeing this movie in IMAX 3D when it comes out on September 27th, 2013.
