THE LIST NEEDS A LAMMY

Posted in Cameos for Other Sites with tags , , on April 23, 2011 by Kaiderman

WE ARE BACK! That’s right, vacation was fun but all good things must come to an end. We are back with all new content for you, our dear readers, and none too soon. You see it’s LAMMY time again and we need your help.

As you can see in the sidebar, we are a proud member of THE LARGE ASSOCIATION OF MOVIE BLOGS (aka: THE LAMB). Every year, THE LAMB holds their annual LAMMY awards. A chance to recognize the best of the best… Karate Kid style! Last year, after being a member for a short time, we received several votes but were unable to get a nomination. Well, a year has passed, as have 100,000 hits, and this year we want to take the farm animal home. Sadly, it’s not the first time I’ve said that in my life!

So, if you are a member of LAMB, as I know many of our readers our, please remember to vote for THE LIST and MILFcast when casting your votes this year!

MY TOP 5 NUDE SCENES

Posted in Cameos for Other Sites, Top 5 with tags on February 26, 2011 by Kaiderman

Unfortunately, Kathy Bates just missed THE LIST!

I would like to thank Nick Jobe (of Random Ramblings of a Demented Doorknob) for having me on his podcast (The Demented Podcast) this week. You can find that, as well as scenes of me in the finale of his VLOG, by clicking here. While on the podcast, we had a riveting discussion about nudity in film which lead me to this. My Top 5 Nude Scenes in film. Here they are (in order):

5. JUST ONE OF THE GUYS.

After cutting her hair and going undercover as a boy at a rival high school, teen journalist Terry Griffith must reveal to the subject of her story, a less than popular boy she befriended, that she is in fact a girl. What better way to do this than ripping open her tuxedo and revealing near perfect breasts. This scene makes my list more for nostalgic reasons than anything. The film is pretty standard until the unnecessary flash shot.

4. PIRANHA 3-D.

Nudity is a very important part of making a good horror film. Piranha takes things a bit too far acting more like a porno that also features Elizabeth Shue and people being eaten by prehistoric fish. However, kudos must be given to the underwater ballet that takes place between Kelly Brook and Riley Steel… the only nude shot that needed to be in this film.

3. MULHOLLAND DRIVE.

I have been on record stating this many times… I hate this film. The only thing that makes it worth its weight in celluloid is the lesbian scene that takes place between Naomi Watts and Laura Harring. Is it essential to the plot? I honestly couldn’t tell you what the fuck the plot of this film is so your guess is as good as mine.

2. SPECIES.

Natasha Henstridge was one of those rare beauties that stood out even in a sea of flawless Hollywood blondes. Watching her walk around naked for half of this film makes it completely worth while.

1. FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH.

I don’t want to put this film as my #1 because it feels a bit cliché but let’s be honest, it earned it. When Phoebe Cates stepped out of that pool in slow motion she instantly materialized into the living embodiment of every prepubescent boy’s wet dream… God bless her!

I should mention that while I take pride in all my lists, I feel this is the least concrete Top 5 I’ve ever put together and the order and choices could change from day-to-day depending on the weather, my mood and how many articles of clothing I’m wearing. But enough about me… what are some of your favorites?

AN OSCAR BATTLE ROYALE

Posted in Cameos for Other Sites with tags , on February 24, 2011 by Kaiderman

The boys over Ross v. Ross enjoyed having their asses kicked on our Expendables battle (over at the Metro Film Fight Club) so much that they’ve invited me back to take on 9 fellow bloggers in a war of words over who should win this year’s Best Picture honor at the 2011 Academy Awards. We were limited to under 100 words for print so I had to keep it brief but I think you’ll agree that I brought my usual A-game. What film was I tasked with defending? One I rather enjoyed:

So, stop by and check me out handing everyone’s ass to them in this Battle Royale. You can do so by CLICKING HERE!!!

CINEMA CODE OF CONDUCT

Posted in Cameos for Other Sites, MEME with tags , , , on December 1, 2010 by Kaiderman

The “Cinema Code of Conduct” above was put together by Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo who are, as it’s been explained to me, essentially the Siskel and Ebert of the UK. It’s a great list that, friend of THE LIST, Winter Tyson (of Cinema Scream) thought it might be a bit incomplete. So, he’s enlisted a bunch of bloggers to tack on our own rule to go along with these. I’m going to cheat and add 2 though they are essentially the same. Here they are:

THE SPACE RULE.

Part 1: If the theater is sparse or even nearly empty, you must sit nowhere near me. In particular, you must not sit in front of me. While it may be bad manners, I have every intention of propping my feet up on the seat in front of me and you have no right to impede that. I also don’t want to hear you… or see you… or, worst of all, smell you!

Part 2 (for guys): A one seat gap must be maintained between 2 men seeing a film together. While this started as a homophobic thing, it no longer is. Men just really like having space and everyone wants the arm rest. If the theater is near capacity, this rule may need to be broken but you MUST maintain the gap as long as it is possible… or just bring a purse to throw in the empty seat and say your girlfriend is getting candy!

KAIDERMAN vs. THE FILM CYNICS

MY TOP 5 FILMS THAT REVOLVE AROUND HOLIDAYS (and don’t really need to)

Posted in Cameos for Other Sites, Top 5 with tags on November 27, 2010 by Kaiderman

The day after this post goes up, I will be appearing as a guest on The Film Cynics radio show. As is customary when Steve and Brian have someone on, they task them with coming up with a Top 5 list for the show. No problem really for your friendly neighborhood Kaiderman over at THE LIST!

Steve had suggested a couple of topics for a Top 5, including an early Christmas list. I just wasn’t feeling it. However, lately I had been thinking about putting together a list of films that revolve around holidays that really don’t need to. So, I went with that as it still keeps within the holiday vibe.

My prerequisites for compiling this Top 5 were 2 very simple things. (1) My picks had to feature a holiday that is very prevalent within the film. And (2) the holiday had to have no real impact on how the story need be told. That is, if the holiday were removed completely from the film, the filmmakers could still easily manage to tell the same story.

That being said, here are my TOP 5 FILMS THAT REVOLVE AROUND HOLIDAYS (and don’t really need to). In order:

5. GREMLINS.

I had to rewatch this film to make sure it deserved a spot on this list and I’m happy to say it does. It’s still an entertaining watch that reminds me of my childhood in the 80’s. When children’s movies were awesome in that they really shouldn’t have been seen by children. This film kind of defies categorization in that it’s part Horror, part Comedy, part B-Movie and part Family film but really manages to be none of those all at the same time. It also takes place at X-mas but really doesn’t have to. I realize Gizmo was an X-mas gift but he could’ve just as easily been a Birthday present. Continue reading

TOP 10 MADE-UP MOVIE PRODUCTS

Posted in Cameos for Other Sites, Guest Bloggers with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 25, 2010 by Kaiderman

Tag Team back again. Check it, direct it, let’s begin. That’s right, folks, Heather and I are back yet again to tag team another Top 10… and we have every intention of making it our bitch. So, without further ado, we present our Top 10 Made-Up Movie Products.

HEATHER’S TOP 5:

SEX PANTHER from ANCHORMAN.

 

It’s made by Odeon, and made with bits of real panther, used by Brian Fantana to seduce Veronica Conrningstone, and it’s illegal in nine countries.  Some have even said it smells like Bigfoot’s dick.   Anchorman really exploited this lovely product in a way that exhausted the films humor until Steve Carell uttered, “I love lamp.”  I suggest you give Sex Panther a try, but only if you dare.

SOUL GLOW from COMING TO AMERICA.
