Elvis Has Left the Building (2004)
It’s the latest project from a filmmaker who has always been obsessed with the forces that fuel America (watch 2005’s “Why We Fight” for a perpetually relevant dissection of the military-industrial complex) and who always returns to the same one: Money.
It did sneak in a joke about Dean killing Hitler, which was fine, but I was glad that it was used in such a minimal fashion.
Instead, “Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox” felt much more in line with older Supernatural, hitting on some personal moments and dealing with a demon that was more than just a stammering suit-wearing follower to Crowley.

If anything, it was pretty great seeing more hunters. Sure, Sam and Dean are the stuff of legends, but they aren’t the only ones fighting the good fight. And when the Winchesters are dealing with big bads like Lucifer or the Darkness, there are plenty of others taking down wendigos and ghouls.
Remember when demons were big bads in of themselves? It

The faith-based film, which follows such recent Christian-marketed hits as "Son of God," "God's Not Dead," and "Heaven Is for Real," opened on 1,956 screens and featured such brand-name actors as Ray Liotta, Ashley Judd, and Seth Green. It featured a provocative premise, loosely inspired by the real-life fact that Elvis Presley had a stillborn twin brother: What if that boy had lived? And its marketplace competition consisted entirely of movies that have been out for a week or more already.
Yet "The Identical" didn't even open in the top 10. Debuting in 11th place, it earned an estimated $1.9 million (well below the $5 million that some pundits had predicted), for a weak per-screen average of just $977. Which means about eight people on average attended each screening. ("Guardians of the Galaxy,
Greetings from the apocalypse! It's a weekend full of westerns, cool bands and two movies with Steve Carell. That helps to ease the pain of yet another extended Johnny Depp mugging session masquerading as a popcorn film. I'm on to you, Depp …

Pow! In Theaters
"A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty 'Hi-ho, who gives a s**t?'" "The Lone Ranger" returns us to those thrilling days of yesteryear via the thundering hoof-beats of audience apathy as Disney throws a cool $200 million on the fire betting on a brand name that hasn't been relevant since when JFK was still alive. Wannabe Cherokee Johnny Depp does his usual postmodern
That he has arrived now and thrust himself casually and cheekily into the heart of the nation is testament to his easy-going manner, observational humour and the glint in his eye that, even on stage in front of hundreds of people, he can’t quiet believe that he’s achieved the success he has. The roots of his comedy can be traced back to the working mens clubs but his stage persona and the self deprecating tone of his comedy make it easy for audiences to laugh along, rather than at, the targets
Some people felt like suing. Others felt like crafting. Either way, "Drive" is clearly a total stitch (get it?). The polarizing Ryan Gosling movie inspired some fans to crochet Driver. Seriously. See more pics at The Pictorial Gosling.
Yikes! Thanks to Spike's upcoming Scream Awards, we now know not to mess with Chloe Grace Moretz ... or her plus one, for that matter.
You aced freshman English -- now see if those rockin' writing skills can help you hang with Kal Penn, star of the upcoming "Harold & Kumar Christmas 3D." Unleash your cleverest rhetoric and persuade mtvU of your unsurpassable fandom, and you could make the grade to interview — in person — the hilarious star.
Something tells us you want to hear all about John C. Reilly and his "Dungeons & Dragons" past. Don't worry -- we're not judging,
Even some hardcore Elvis Presley fans find his movies a bit tedious to watch. He’s singing, he’s fighting, he’s singing, he’s kissing, he’s singing while fighting… that’s pretty much the script rundown for a lot of his films.
I hear that “Clambake” was E’s personal favorite of all his movies, but he liked the character of Danny Fisher in “King Creole” the best. The critics also seem to favor the two-fisted, hard-headed, dropout, nightclub singer of the 1958 classic.
While trying to choose a wine for “King Creole,” my mind immediately played the Wwed card – What Would Elvis Drink?
The King may be more closely associated with stuff a little harder than alcohol. He didn’t seem to be much of a social drinker, but he didn’t really seem very social anyway. I
But it isn't just about the music. Sure, Presley is responsible for some incredible songs that represent the cornerstones of rock music (including gems like "Jailhouse Rock," "Blue Suede Shoes," "Hound Dog," "Heartbreak Hotel" and countless others), but his draw is also about style, attitude and mystique. He left behind a legacy of envelope-pushing fashion, sexual politics and the kind of swagger that many artists have attempted to replicate but few have really gotten right.
So it's not entirely surprising that on this day in 2005, a report showed that Elvis Presley has had more songs written about
Today's episode: Paul Verhoeven's gaudy masterwork Showgirls (1995). It's loud. It's trashy. It's colorful. It's spectacularly itself. Something all movies should strive to be. So, very briefly, I considered this shot from the opening sequence.
Because the "Huge" graphic makes me giggle. It can't have been an accident that that's the word that flashes in neon just as Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkley) pulls into Las Vegas. "I'm gonna win."
I almost went with anything from Nomi's first performance like these.
I love how distorted and fleshy the
