10 Unforgettable Awkward Movie Moments

That_Awkward_MomentAccording to That Awkward Moment, there’s a point in a relationship when someone busts out “The So.” One party kicks off the conversation with “so …” and then follows it up with a question that will determine the fate of the relationship – where is this going, what are we doing, etc. We can’t help you avoid “The So” or stop you from tripping and falling, pressing send on an e-mail prematurely or getting caught up in a big fat lie, but at least for the next few minutes you can steer clear of any self-created misunderstandings by indulging in this string of big-screen mishaps that rival the awkwardness of “The So.”

Dress Shopping in Bridesmaids

Doing your business all over expensive bridesmaid dresses is devastating no matter what the circumstances, but what really makes the post-Brazilian feast calamity in Bridesmaids even more effective is the build-up. At first the schvitzing, fidgeting and tummy rumbling seems harmless, especially when you’re discussing whether or not to buy a Fritz Bernaise, but the second one bridesmaid can’t hold it in any longer, it’s a chain reaction of mind-blowingly unladylike incidents until poor Lillian is in the middle of the street, pooping her high-end wedding dress. The two-year-old Lady JuJu gown was too poofy anyway.

10 Things Hollywood Should Retire in the New Year

Hollywood_Resolutions

Another year gone, another assortment of big-screen missteps made that should never be repeated again. We get an incredible amount of new releases each and every year, so of course not every film can be a box office hit or Academy Award contender, but the upside to that is there’s always an opportunity to learn from the mistakes.

In an effort to make 2014 a better year for film than ever, we bring you 10 things the movie industry should do away with in the New Year.

Review: Movie 43

Movie_43_PosterStar power is no match for tasteless, offensive and unfunny comedy.

The “Movie 43” wraparound features Dennis Quaid as a lunatic with an abysmal script who forces Greg Kinnear’s movie producer to buy the piece at gunpoint. Coincidence? Probably not, as almost each and every sketch of this comedy anthology is so silly, nauseating and degrading it seems like the only plausible way the producers could manage to recruit so much top-notch talent.

Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet make it through better than most. Jackman will likely never live down having a pair of testicles dangle from his neck for the sake of this movie, but between the giggle-worthy visual and the duo’s charm, “The Catch” is easily “Movie 43’s” finest few minutes. Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber’s “Homeschooled” is another portion that at least respects its leads, but breaks down entirely when the scenario drivels on and right into a strange and unsatisfying conclusion.

The Best – and Worst – Movie Promos of the Week

DjangoUnchainedThrow all the horror movie spoofs, celebrity cameos, gross-out jokes and slapstick gags into a trailer you want, but that’s not getting it into the Best Stuff, Scary Movie 5. And, you know what? The same goes to you, A Haunted House!

The Best Stuff

1.  Django Unchained Trailer: Django Unchained rolled into its wide release with a bang. Unlike most of the earlier trailers, this one ditches the Brittle brothers bit and puts the focus on Django’s search for Broomhilda. It’s got a great fresh feel all while keeping in the confines of the world courtesy of the wildly appropriate John Legend tune and unforgettable imagery.

The Best – and Worst – Movie Promos of the Week

Per usual, we receive an insane amount of hype around the reveal of the final Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 poster only to get a design that we’ve seen time and time again. Sure, the franchise has made the big bucks by delivering more and more of the same, but there’s a trio of movie promotions out this week that win big by getting bold, creative and pleasantly surprising.

The Best Stuff

1. Frankenweenie Pet PostersYou probably know that Frankenweenie is about a kid who brings his dog back to life with a science experiment, but Victor has another hobby: making films. And while that passion has flown under the radar during the movie’s marketing campaign, in the full feature, it’s remarkably charming and brilliantly woven into the narrative.

2. The Lone Ranger PosterMy interest in The Lone Ranger since the film was announced? Zero. My interest in The Lone Ranger since the reveal of this poster? Not much higher than that, but this minimalistic approach gets points for being both a visual success and a nice surprise, far more so than the first trailer.
