With So Many Bad Movies, How Can We Name the Worst?
When the subject of the "worst movie ever" comes up, someone will always mention The Room, Plan 9 From Outer Space, Howard the Duck, Birdemic, Troll 2, and Manos the Hand of Fate. James Rolfe of Cinemassacre disagrees that any of these films are truly bad. Movies that are unintentionally funny because of their poor execution are still entertaining in their own way. Movies that were produced in order to be considered "bad," like Sharknado, don't count, either. The truly bad movies are the ones you've probably never even heard of, but Rolfe will introduce us to one movie that is so bad that you don't even want to read about it, much less check it out. But if you can't help yourself, you can read about Wavelength here.#movie #film #badmovie #goldenturkey
If You Couldn't Follow These Sci-Fi Movies, You're Not Alone
The process of taking a science fiction story and putting it on the big screen involves compromises all along the way. There just isn't time to explain what's happening the way a book does, and if we wanted everything explained, we'd just read the book. Some science fiction movies translate the story better than others. Sometimes it's just a time crunch that demands more edits; in other movies the art or the action takes priority over clarity. What's the most confusing sci-fi movie you've seen? Does Inception confuse you more than Looper? Is it harder to follow 2001: A Space Odyssey or Primer? Screen Rant took suggestions from reddit and ranked the top ten most confusing science fiction films up through 2013. They don't explain their ranking calculations, but the movies are admittedly confusing. See how others' opinions rank against your own as far as incomprehensible movies go by checking out the list. The movie Zardoz is strangely absent. It could be that not too many redditors have seen it all the way through. -via Fark#sciencefiction #scifi #film #movie

Film Locations Then & Now: What Places in the Movies Look Like Now
Does that street look familiar but you just can't place where you saw it before? Perhaps you saw it in a movie - like the scene shown above from Back to the Future (1985) where Marty hitched a ride on his skateboard by holding on to the back of a blue pickup truck pulling out of a driveway of a Burger King in Hill Valley. Today, nearly 40 years later, that Burger King is still in there in Burbank, California, where that scene was filmed.Location shooting is where a film or TV show is filmed in a real-world setting, as opposed to a sound stage or a studio backlot. In some filming locations, the actual place and the place the movie is supposedly set are the same - for example, La La Land (2016) was actually filmed in Los Angeles. In other movies, the filming locations are different: Amadeus (1984) was set in Vienna, Austria, but was shot in Prague and Kromeriz in the Czech Republic.Of course, after the movie is filmed, shown to adoring fans, and consigned to re-runs on Netflix or are forgotten, the filming locations - the houses, buildings, parks and streets - are often still there. And years or decades later, that location would have changed with the times while some elements would remain similar to what we'd see in the film.The entertaining and fun Then & Now Movie Locations website and Instagram page by Paul S. features movie stills from famous movies showing the filming locations and what those locations look like at present day. The site showcases a few locations that were featured in Hollywood blockbusters like Top Gun (1986), Robocop (1987) and Forrest Gump (1994) to classic horror flicks like Friday the 13th (1980) and A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984).Images via Then & Now Movie Locations#movies #film #filmlocation #thenandnow #featuredHere are some of our favorites Film Locations Then & Now:
Movies by Comedy Stars That Were Never Made
Every actor has a vision of a pet project they want to star in, or even maybe produce someday. If you're good, and you work long enough to get clout, that sometimes happens. But Hollywood is fickle, and there are plenty of reasons a movie never gets made. First, you have to get the right people to believe in your project, then you have to get financing, and after that a hundred different things can go wrong, at each stage of the production. Another project gets in the way, people lose interest, and the worst thing might happen.
