Borat's parody anthem greets Kazakh athletes in Kuwait

Post Pic
Borat (played by Sacha Baron Cohen) Kazakhstan’s shooting team was reportedly taken by surprise at a championship in Kuwait recently. Instead of their national anthem, they heard a parody version from Sacha Baron Cohen’s controversial film Borat. Judging from the YouTube video of the gaffe, the team’s reaction to hearing the English lyrics about “Kazakhstan’s prostitutes cleanest in... 

DeVito for Russian President?

Post Pic
American actor Danny DeVito As Russia prepares to go to the polls in a presidential election, Hollywood star Danny DeVito has called on Russians to vote for him in March. ­Following in the footsteps of Russian celebs, whose pre-election “addresses” have recently caused massive hype on the internet, DeVito decided to throw his hat in the ring too. In fact, the Get Shorty star was perhaps not hoping... 

Melancholia Fear-Mongering you with 2012 Nibiru Apocalypse

Post Pic
A new Hollywood film, “Melancholia” by the controversial film director Lars von Trier who in 2009 angered the Catholic Church with his disgusting Antichrist movie, is now set to push the doctrine of 2012 Nibiru Apocalypse further. While the planet in the 2011 Melancholia movie is called “Melancholia” and not Nibiru, all you have to do is to rename the planet Melancholia into... 

Transformers: Dark of the Moon Review

Post Pic
It’s that time of year again: summer. It’s hot outside, and cookouts with fireworks are just around the corner, so it’s only natural that American cinemas should be filled with explosions. When it comes to blowing things up, nothing in recent memory tops the display of the “Transformers” movies. The third film in the franchise, “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” hits multiplexes across... 

Paul the Appalling Movie

Post Pic
If you are worried about spoilers, relax. In the first place, Paul is an utterly predictable parody of E.T. Only if you haven’t seen the latter will anything come as a surprise and in that case you’d be missing the point. In the second place, Paul is one of the most offensive movies I have ever seen. If I am spoiling it for you, you probably deserve it. Paul stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost,... 

Cyprus: Where Heaven falls prey to thieves

Post Pic
Where Heaven falls prey to thieves from Henrik Clausen on Vimeo. A short documentary about the extensive art theft that has taken place in North Cyprus since the 1974 Turkish invasion. The theft has taken place with tacit or active approval from the Turkish army. The plunder not only served as a source of income for criminals in North Cyprus and shady antiquity dealers, it was also an act to eradicate... 

Thor Movie Review

Post Pic
Heimdall by way of Detroit is not the main problem with Thor. It’s one thing to turn a heathen war god into a comic book. It’s another to turn him into a social democrat. Kenneth Branagh’s Thor was obviously meant to be a desecration, and it’s already passé to point this out. The casting is so deliberately clumsy that it becomes ironically racist. Idris Elba as the “whitest of the gods,”... 

Dreamworks Movie Artist Charged in Fatal Dog Beating

Post Pic
UPDATE: The accused dog beater has been identified as an animator for DreamWorks, having worked on animal-themed films including “Kung Fu Panda,” “Shark Tale,” “Bee Movie” and “Madagascar 2″. UPDATE 2: Prosecutors now claim after he killed the dog, he carried off its body. The abuse of an animal never makes any sense. This particular abuse case however, makes the least sense of all. In...

Post Pic
Idris Elba (RocknRolla, “The Wire”) plays a Norse god by the name of Heimdall in Marvel’s “Thor” film. Heimdall is sometimes referred to as “The White God,” which is why the Council of Conservative Citizens (CofCC) is planning to boycott the movie when it hits theaters on May 6th 2011. The group wrote: “Norse mythology gets multi-cultural remake in upcoming...

Machete (2010) movie review

Post Pic
One could figure that the current drug-war in Mexico, nearly 30,000 people murdered in just three years, would generate a cultural reaction. And one could further figure, of course, that the tens of millions of people who have crossed the U.S.-Mexican border in recent decades would have an enormous cultural impact, including on the movies. But who knew that Hollywood would blame everything that’s... 

Avatar is racist, say paranoid critics

Post Pic
Philadelphia – Near the end of the hit movie Avatar, the villain snarls at the hero: “How does it feel to betray your own race?” Both men are white – although the hero inhabits a blue-skinned, 2.75 metre-tall, long-tailed alien. Strange as it may seem for a film that pits greedy, immoral humans against noble denizens of a faraway moon, Avatar is being criticised by a small, but vocal group... 

Some people feel suicidal after watching the movie Avatar

On the fan forum site “Avatar Forums,” a topic thread entitled “Ways to cope with the depression of the dream...

Post Pic
A documentary panned at Cannes in the 1970s for depicting Hitler’s personal life is now being shown in Germany for the first time. David Wroe speaks with the director with the director about the film’s vastly different reception nearly four decades later. When “Swastika” was shown at the 1973 Cannes film festival, fights broke out and somebody threw part of a chair at the screen. “All...
