Saw Movie

Like a good horror villain, the Saw franchise refuses to die.

It’s been announced that the franchise is being rebooted with a new entry in 2020, and someone quite unexpected is behind its resurrection: Chris Rock. Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures have teamed up with Rock for the reboot, which he says will take the horror series to an “intense and twisted new place.”

SNL Adam Sandler Chris Farley Song

Adam Sandler hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, marking his first time back on the long-running NBC late-night sketch show since his 1995 firing by the network. A sore subject he addressed in his opening monologue during his song, “I Was Fired.”

The humorous tune, which contained a guest appearance by Chris Rock, also mentioned how his friend and co-star Chris Farley had been fired at the same time. To close the show, Sandler performed a more somber song in tribute to Farley, who died in 1997 of a drug overdose at age 33.

Watch the performances for both songs here below, along with other videos from the episode.

Leonardo DiCaprio Oscars 2016 win

Oscars 2016 has come and gone. The stars walked from the Red Carpet in Hollywood. We saw what they were wearing. The winners were announced, and the 88th Annual Academy Awards, which was broadcasted on ABC live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, CA, tonight, is done.

There were a lot of intriguing storylines heading into this year’s show: Would Leonardo DiCaprio finally get his first Oscar? Would Sylvester Stallone win for a character he was nominated for 40 years ago? Would Alejandro Inarritu become the first director since Joseph L. Mankiewicz in 1949-50 to win back-to-back Best Director honors? What about the elephant in the room — the lack of diversity amongst the acting nominees for the second straight year — would it be addressed? What on earth would host Chris Rock say?!?!

Now the the ceremony is over, here’s a rundown of the evening’s events…

Movie: The Movie 2V Image

Last year after the Oscars, Jimmy Kimmel showed off a trailer for a completely fake movie titled Movie: The Movie (watch it here) that looked funnier than most parody movies you’ve seen (or ignored) over the past decade or so. This year, naturally, Kimmel had to show the trailer for the sequel, Movie: The Movie 2V.

The also fake sequel stars a slew of celebrities, including Jessica Chastain, Channing Tatum, Samuel L. Jackson, Armie Hammer, Amanda Seyfried, Bradley Cooper, Gerard Butler, Rachel Weisz, Matt Damon, Kerry Washington, John Krasinski, Chris Rock, Salma Hayek, Bryan Cranston, Jude Law, Jason Schwartzman, Topher Grace, and even Oprah.

Check out the trailer for Movie: The Movie 2V below!

Movie Review: Grown Ups

Grown Ups
Directed by Dennis Dugan
Starring Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade, Rob Schneider
Rated PG-13
Release date: June 25, 2010

If you only see one movie this summer, it would be a smart idea to make it anything other than Grown Ups, the latest film to star Adam Sandler and the usual group of people who seem to rely entirely on Sandler for work.

What rough passes for the plot of the movie is this: A group of friends were all on their grade school basketball team together and won a championship game. Thirty years later, their former coach passes away, and the friends decide to spend a weekend at a cottage on the lake after his funeral. They bring their families, straight from the funeral, and hilarity ensues… right? Not really.

Every single character is a one-trick pony that runs the same joke into the ground repeatedly. Eric (Kevin James) is a family man who tries hard to be a big shot but cannot have a honest conversation about most things. Kurt (Chris Rock) is an emasculated househusband who likes to cook, but only so much that it’s mentioned once early in the film. Marcus (David Spade) is a sex-hungry womanizer. Rob (Rob Schneider) is a new-age dimwit who likes much older women. Then there’s Lenny (Adam Sandler) who’s rich, successful, and great at sports all while being surprisingly humble and down-to-Earth about it all.

DVD Review: ‘Madagascar’ (Blu-ray)

Madagascar Blu-ray DVDMadagascar
Blu-ray (2005)
Starring Ben Stiller, Jada Pinkett Smith, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Cedric the Entertainer
Paramount Home Entertainment
Release Date: September 23, 2008

When Madagascar first came out in 2005, the computer-animated film was considered a commercial success but I still avoided it like the plague. I do not know why but there is something about computer-generated films littered with big-named stars that just makes me think it is going to be a stinker. Now with the sequel coming out in November, Paramount/Dreamworks has decided to re-release the film, this time on Blu-ray DVD, giving me an opportunity to find out if I was right to miss it the first time.

Madagascar follows the life of a group of pampered animals that all happen to be the star attraction at the Central Park Zoo in New York. One of the animals, Marty the Zebra (voiced by Chris Rock), realizes on his tenth birthday that something is missing in his life. He is tired of being cooped up in the zoo and wants see the world. When Alex the Lion (Ben Stiller) discovers fellow zoo residents the penguins’ plot to dig a hole to freedom, Marty follows suit and breaks free with them. His friends Alex the Lion, Melmam the Giraffe (David Swimmer), and Gloria the Hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith) go after him in an effort to bring him back to the zoo. The mission fails famously and in a series of odd events, the animals get stranded on a tropical island left to fend for themselves for the first time.
