deadlinecom: “Frequent” movie-going has plummeted among entertainment options for Americans in the past three years, according to results of an annual survey released today by the public relations giant Edelman. The study shows that TV remains the most-used source of entertainment (45 percent of Americans…

ORSON WELLES ARTWORK AT THE ARCLIGHT
The Arclight in Hollywood sometimes has some cool art on display but this really outdoes it all. Would love to have this hanging on my wall. ROSEBUD!!! Thanks to Jeff Goldsmith for the find.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 2/9/12
FROM ANDREW in response to our Midnight with Robert Shaw (Oscar Nominations) Episode: Yo! Just listened to your January 25th show. I liked that it was short and sweet. It was great. I was able to listen to it while cleaning my keyboard and blinds. Wow, that sounds like a bad combo. Anyways… I wouldn’t call myself an expert, but I think your idea of how the oscar voting system works...
ANDY WARHOL SHOULD HAVE KEPT HIS MOUTH SHUT, FAME...
Why do people flock to Hollywood by the bus loads in search of fame and fortune? Why are they vapid, stupid, worthless and egotistical to boot? Their ambition is that of Shakespearean stuff, but they do not stride like a colossus they get a tan and work out, drinking Robeks juice and eating powerbars. They’re head so fat from their own sense of entitlement seeking fortune ...

2012 SUPERBOWL MOVIE TEASERS IN REVIEW
The Superbowl was boring, the commercials lackluster but there were a few movie teasers. How did they score? Find out below. GI JOE 2 I liked this trailer. It starts off fast and doesn’t let up. The Rock quoting Jay-Z lets you know what kind of tone this movie is trying to set. Fun, fast and slick. The action also appears to be a lot more in camera as opposed to the CGI spectacle...
MAN ON A LEDGE REVIEW
After seeing this I can say that for a film that came out of the blue that it does grab you from the first few moments. The filmmakers don’t dwell on the build up to the main character Nick Cassidy (Sam Worthington) climbing onto the ledge. What I particularly liked about every scene with Nick on the ledge was that every scene doesn’t have any cheap looking green screen composite....
HULK HULKS OUT ON A TOILET
Not a pretty sight, but if this happens in THE AVENGERS then that movie will make a billion dollars.

In a world growing more and more devoted to shit and the those who take part in the shit, the name that pops up more times than it should is Lindsay Lohan. You remember her, the chick with massive freckles and who was in that movie that blew up Tina Fey and introduced us to Amanda “huge tits” Seyfried. The gossip shows have been blowing up over a new film about Liz Taylor that may spell...

Midnight with Robert Shaw (The Worst Films of...
Back in the Studio City Palace once again for another installment with Richard and Kyle. This week we discuss the films Underworld Evolutions (or whatever the hell it is called), Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and Lucas’ long gestating Red Tails. Of course we turn from talking about Red Tails to the Worst Films of 2011, which there were many… So which films did we miss out on...
The Innkeepers - Review
The Final Guest Checks Out by Zac Sanford It is the end of an era at the Yankee Pedlar Inn, a small town hotel that has been in business for over 100 years. And over those years the hotel has had its share of guests, including one that may still be roaming the halls, not as a live-in resident or staff member, but as an entity that refuses to leave after the suicide she committed many...
SIDE BY SIDE TRAILER
Side by Side Official Trailer (2012) from Company Films on Vimeo. SIDE BY SIDE is a documentary hosted by Keanu Reeves. In it, he talks with a diverse group of filmmakers (James Cameron, David Lynch, Chris Nolan, Martin Scorsese, etc) about film versus video. This might actually be pretty fascinating, especially if you have any interest in making movies and the technical side of filmmaking. On...
THE ARTIST AUDIO REVIEW
In this episode, we review THE ARTIST, talk about lions nearly eating kids, discuss the possibilities of the Predator appearing in silent films and wrap up by admiring James Cromwell’s long and distinguished career.
GOLDEN LAURELS FOR PRETENDING
Another new year brings the Hollywood quest for self gratification which is more akin to defecation. Dignity is thrown out the window in order to win a statue that says, “BEST” on it. No human being has ever seen more low and expensive schemes to garner buzz and attention from a bunch of old fuckers who don’t even know what a blumkin is, here is a hint, a young actor or actresses will...
Read the Script for 'ROCKY VS RAMBO' →
scottaukerman: Around a year ago, a few friends and I watched all four Rambo movies in one day. We got to talking about how much fun it would be if John Rambo were to meet Rocky Balboa. So we wrote a movie about it. We wrote the outline on one page of paper (in gold ink), split it up into six sections, and each wrote around 15-20 pages, without looking at each others’ work. I got the last...
2012 GOLDEN GLOBE WINNERS
Another year, another pointless, self-congratulatory award show. Here are a few post-show observations: Gervais seemed neutered. Plummer gave a nice, humble speech, and was a pretty snappy-dresser to boot. I was really surprised to see Idris Elba win for LUTHER. Dinklage needed to comb his hair. Could he even see anything? Also, how much of dick was Fincher for not passing Streep her glasses?...
NEW RETRO WOMAN IN BLACK POSTER
With only a few weeks left until its release we get a brand new WOMAN IN BLACK poster. It’s got a great retro-feel, very stylish and a nice homage to poster-art before photo-shop and floating heads took over. Thanks to Badass Digest for the heads up.

JOHN CARTER OF WHAT THE FUCK?
John Carter of Mars, or should we say, John Carter Princess of Mars, or should we say, John Carter Disney’s The Black Hole of the 21st century, received a write up from the New Yorker a couple months back detailing the road Disney took in spending close to $300 million on a franchise yet to be. Granted, Disney has all the money in the world, but when you allow $300 million to be spent on a movie...
Midnight with Robert Shaw (The Best Films of 2011)
Kyle and Richard return to the Studio City Palace to discuss their favorite films of the year. Surprisingly there was only a little overlap between the two. So give it a spin and let us know whether you agree or disagree over on Twitter (@drunkrobertshaw).

Producer Zac's Best/Worst & Every Film inbetween...
So here I am once again with my yearly list of films that were released theatrically within the calendar year. No, not all these films were watched on the big screen, but instead a mixture of the theater, DVD and streaming was employed. While I thought my viewing habits would have fallen off in the last 12 months, there was actually a slight uptick. Overall, I think 2011 was a mediocre...
ATTACK THE BLOCK GIF
probertson: awesome movie A great film, definitely belongs in this year’s top ten. Seeing this gif makes me want to play the video game (if only it existed).
ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER POSTER
Cool poster, hope the movie doesn’t take the concept too seriously.
