Sh!#ting on the Classics: 3-D Rereleases

I went to a movie on Saturday, but I do not want to talk about that movie. No, I want to discuss the trailers. I realize that this is usually Doug’s territory. In the spirit of fairness, next week he can shit on something. (Doug: not my lawn.)

Watchin' Trailerz with Doug (November 25)

In honour of Thanksgiving, I'm featuring (classic?) trailers from three feature-length movies (no TV specials [sorry, Charlie Brown]) that embody the spirit of Thanksgiving. Good thing I only showcase three previews, because, as it turns out, there are only three Thanksgiving-themed films! Weird, right?

Sh!#ting on the Classics: Anonymous

In the introduction to this recent post about “Our Favorite Movies We Do Not Believe Anyone Else Has Ever Heard Of,” our fearless leader Patrick Bromley talks about “Opposite Day.” In that spirit, instead of shitting on a classic movie, this week I will let the movie do all the shitting for me. The recent movie Anonymous shits on Shakespeare, shits on its own audience, and shits on common sense. Go see it for Thanksgiving! (Remember, OPPOSITE DAY.)

Movies I Love: 10 Things I Hate About You

by Patrick Bromley

When it comes to talking about movies, the internets can be an ugly, hateful place, devoted to tearing down anything and everything but rarely stopping to build anything up (unless it's directed by Christopher Nolan). And while we here at F This Movie! are often guilty of bitter negativity, we do (believe it or not) try and temper our hate with thoughtful reasoning and optimism for the endless possibility of something better. Because a spoonful of sugar makes the arsenic taste slightly less poisony. Or something.

Watchin' Trailerz with Doug (November 18)

Both Brave (release date: June 22, 2012) and The Hunger Games (release date: March 23, 2012) have new, full-length trailers. And why not? I mean, they're basically the same movie (just like two other new trailers, after the jump)! A horribly named (Merida/Katniss) teenage girl-cum-warrior (wielding a bow and arrow) with daddy issues battles "Careers" and monstrous "muttations" who will kill her in order to "prove their worth" in a long-standing traditional competition of deadly skill sponsored by a shadowy government for the sole purpose of entertaining a restless populace. She wants her "freedom," but is she willing to ... PAY THE PRICE THAT FREEDOM COSTS? Dun-dun-dunnnnn!

F This Movie! - The Mist

For their 25th show together, Patrick and JB discuss Frank Darabont's 2007 movie The Mist, plus conspiracy theories, ironic endings, the role of religion in Hollywood movies and the sexual merits of Adam Sandler in drag.

F These Movies You Should Know But Don't

We here at F This Movie! are constantly trying to find new things to say about movies everyone has already seen, so now we'd like to go out of our way to find some old things to say about movies nobody has. What I mean is Opposite Day. You're welcome!

F This Movie! - Juno

Patrick and Alex adopt a thick cloak of annoying hipster irony to discuss Jason Reitman's 2007 movie Juno. Forshizz, homeskillet.

F These Movies About Movies

Movies about making movies aren't just about Hollywood wanking off. Sometimes they're about Hollywood congratulating its own ability to make fun of itself, which is another form of wanking off. Let us F.

Tower Heist Does Not Seem Like the Worst

If you're anything like me, you're pretty sick of having Brett Ratner's new movie, Tower Heist, rammed down your throat lately. Universal is pushing the hell out this thing, running ads on every show on every station (and it's really fucking up my Whitney watching). Posters have been plastered all over my local theater's lobby for months. Ben Stiller showed up on Saturday Night Live to promote it. Even Eddie Murphy crawled out from under Bubble Hill to do Letterman, and he hardly ever does TV to sell a movie. Probably because it's usually Meet Dave.

What I'm saying is that there has been a crazy amount of press and advertising for a movie starring the guy from Envy and the guy from The Adventures of Pluto Nash and directed by the guy who made Rush Hour 3. Everything about this movie suggests it's going to be bad, right?

I'm not so sure. And I'm totally going to see it.
