MY MOVIE PITCH

Posted in Cameos for Other Sites, Film, Movies with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 2, 2010 by Kaiderman

My good buddy Castor Troy over Anomalous Material came up with a genius idea. A bunch of us bloggers got together and had a Fantasy Football style draft. Only instead of drafting athletes, we drafted actors, actresses and a director. The goal? To pitch a Hollywood movie featuring our draftees. I was able to put together a pretty stellar cast. Check it out:

MY DIRECTOR:

James Cameron

MY ACTORS:

Matt Damon

Joseph Gordon Levitt
aka: “JoGo” Continue reading

FILMS THAT DEFINED US

Posted in Film, Films That Defined Us, MEME, Movies with tags , , , , on August 13, 2010 by Kaiderman

This is a new MEME put together by Marc (my Zombie loving friend) over at Go, See, Talk! Please, after reading this, stop by and check out some of the other people’s posts that will be popping up all over the blogosphere today. Here’s the basic idea…

We’re all picking a handful of films that had a profound impact on us in our impressionable years. We are also setting out to answer the following about each:

1. What dazzled us about the film at a young age?

2. How the film holds up?

3. Why you think it sets the standard for the genre of choice?

I’ll do my best. Here’s my 5: Continue reading

FILMS YOU DIDN’T KNOW I’M NEVER GOING TO SEE

Posted in Film, Films You Didn't Know You Need To See, Movies with tags , , on July 17, 2010 by Kaiderman

GOREGIRL over at GOREGIRL’S DUNGEON is going to be sooo disappointed in me!

So, as a movie blogger and general film fan, I take great pride in seeing every single film I can get my hands on. No matter how much I don’t want to. You listening Twilight? Damn you for hooking me on your franchise! I see the good, the really bad and the down right ugly. One of my favorite genres over the years has become Horror. I love me a good scare. However, there are 3 films out there I just can’t pull the trigger on. I thought I’d share them with you today.

I should say, before we begin, that this list used to feature 4 films and included Takashi Miike’s Audition (shown above). I had heard the audio for the ending of the film and found it quite disturbing. However, at a friend’s suggestion (talking to you Bruce Wayne), I watched the film and it wasn’t that bad. So maybe “NEVER” is too strong a word but for now I’m sticking with it because these films honestly scare the shit out of me!

Call me a pussy! Call me a coward! Call me what you you will… just don’t call me a liar because here are the 3 films that I’m honestly never going to see. In order: Continue reading

HEY, CLOCK… TICK FASTER!!!

Posted in Film, Movies, Quickies with tags , , , , on July 15, 2010 by Kaiderman

I have to apologize because I would normally put a new post up today but I am faaaaaar too busy holding my breath. Keep your fingers crossed that this one lives up to the hype! If it does, being that it is an original screenplay, it could have a tremendous effect on the industry going forward. I think it will do fine but apparently Warner Brothers still feels the need to try and capitalize off  the success of the Dark Knight. What do you think?

Eerily similar, wouldn’t you say? Anyway, to keep you entertained until Saturday, allow me to share this audio of a recent phone call between Mel Gibson and Christian Bale. Just so you know, this may be one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard! Check it out:

MOVIE MONOLOGUES I LOVE

Posted in Film, Movies with tags , , , , on July 13, 2010 by Kaiderman

 I wouldn’t go so far as to call these the greatest monologues of all time but they are 5 I LOVE. I could have put up audio clips but I think it’s better to see them as they appeared in the script, the way the actor first saw them. Check them out:

BULL DURHAM.

“Well, I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman’s back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.”  - CRASH DAVIS (KEVIN COSTNER)

I think this one is great because the manner in which it’s delivered. He doesn’t hesitate… he’s knows who he is. Plus, he manages to sound manly and romantic in the same breath. Continue reading

GROOVERS & MOBSTERS PRESENT: THE FINAL FRONTIER

I have been invited by ANDY from THE FANDANGO GROOVERS MOVIE BLOG and HEATHER from MOVIE MOBSTERS have invited me back for a 2nd time to take part in their discussion of films that have influenced a genre (take that M. CARTER). This time around the focus is THE FINAL FRONTIER… and I got the Grand Daddy of them all:

FILMS YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU NEEDED TO SEE 4

Posted in Film, Films You Didn't Know You Need To See, Guest Bloggers, Movies, Ongoing Lists with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 26, 2010 by Kaiderman

 

For those of you new to the site, here’s the idea behind this post:

On a boring Tuesday morning, of a week with no good new releases, I decided to rent a film I stumbled across that I had never even heard of. That film was Oldboy and it proceeded to blow my mind. Since then, I have lent the film to several of my friends and their experience mirrored mine.

This post was put together in an attempt to recreate that experience and hopefully present you with some films that may have flown under your radar. Films that are collecting dust in the “Favorites” aisle of your local video store… waiting to be checked out… and make you say, “How the hell did I miss this film?

To help me, as always, I’ve called some friends in. Fellow bloggers whose work I enjoy. Helping me today are:

Olive O’Brien from Movie News First

Marc from Go, See, Talk

Big Red (the other half) from Anomalous Material

Ripley from Four of Them

Andrew from Encore Entertainment

And, of course, me… your friendly neighborhood Kaiderman. Normally I’d go last but then I remembered it’s my blog and I CAN DO WHATEVER THE HELL I WANT! haha… so, I think I’ll kick this one off! Continue reading

THE REASONS MOVIES RULE: THE KARATE KID

Posted in Film, Movies, Ongoing Lists, Reasons Movies Rule with tags , , , , , , , , on June 19, 2010 by Kaiderman

It’s time for a new entry into our REASONS MOVIES RULE series. Wherein we give you 10 reasons a cult film, be it awesomely good or so bad it’s awesomely good, deserves to be given some respect. This week’s entry: THE KARATE KID.

The REASONS MOVIES RULE series varies from our FILMS YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU NEEDED TO SEE series a bit in that you’ve probably seen these films but I just don’t think you realize how much they rule!

This film has been forced to the top of my list of films to include in this series ever since last week’s release of the horrible remake (starring Jackie Chan and Jayden Smith) which seems to retain none of the things that made the original so awesome.

So, I present to you, dear readers, 10 reasons THE KARATE KID rules. Here ya go: Continue reading

I THINK I PEED A LITTLE

Posted in Film, Gag Reels, Humor, Movies with tags , , , , , , , on June 15, 2010 by Kaiderman

I don’t know about you guys but my favorite special feature on a DVD has always been the OUTTAKES or the GAG REEL. The problem is most DVD’s that feature them usually suck. However, every now and then they make me laugh until I cry.

These aren’t the greatest outtakes of all time. These just happen to be my favorite. I’m posting these because I’d like to hear what you think and would love to hear of some other great ones out there that I may have missed. Here’s my top 5 all time: Continue reading

Don’t tell Rose she didn’t make THE LIST… she all ready looks pretty upset!!!

I don’t know about you but, after that whole Man Crush post (which was featured on Freshly Pressed for some reason), I need something to get the taste of man out of my mouth. That managed to sound gay, didn’t it? Son of a…

Anyways, what better way to do that then to turn our attention to the ladies? So, I present to you the 12 hottest characters to grace the screen, and my dreams, in the Sci-Fi & Action genres. Normally, I’d do a list of 10 but, for the ladies, let’s go 12. Here ya go (in order): Continue reading
