Kevin Tricks The Hotel Staff In Home Alone 2 With Full Metal Jacket

Someone went and re-edited the hotel staff scene in Home Alone 2 with audio clips from Full Metal Jacket, and the scene is made exponentially better in this version. Of course, this version would never fly in a film for children, and the original scene is good enough. That’s mostly due to Tim Curry, who sells the scene equally as well in the video belowl. Damn, I really miss his acting days:

H. Jon Benjamin Tweets ‘Me So Horny’ Joke, Quickly Apologizes
H. Jon Benjamin, famous for his voice work on shows like “Archer” and “Bob’s Burgers,” is used to making people laugh. So it probably came as a surprise when his latest attempt at a Twitter joke fell flat: “Quick idea for the name of a tea shop- ‘ooh me so horny, me love you oolong time tea shop.’” The tweet has thus far received more than 100 responses, most of them negative — a Twitter phenomenon often referred to as The Ratio.

Originating as a line in Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket,” “me so horny” has been used as an Asian stereotype in the decades since the film’s release. Following the reactions to his tweet, Benjamin apologized within hours: “Sorry I offended many. I agree this ‘joke’ was lazy and incompetent and formulated quickly while making a cup of oolong tea,” he wrote.

All 19 ‘Black Mirror’ Episodes Ranked, From Good to Mind-Blowing (Photos)

  • The Wrap
We’ve spent a lot of time staring into Netflix’s dark, cracked “Black Mirror.” Usually we rank things from worst to best, but there are no bad episodes of the show. The worst are entertaining and the best tear your heart out. Here they are ranked from good to to mind-blowing.

19. Season 2, Episode 3: “The Waldo Moment”

A lot of people say this episode, about an insulting cartoon bear who inserts himself into politics, heralded the rise of Donald Trump. It’s well done, but just not that groundbreaking.

18. Season 3, Episode 6: “Hated in the Nation”

It’s disappointing that Season 3 — in which “Black Mirror” produced some of the best television, well, ever — ended on such a so-so note. This story about a killer hashtag and Terminator bees has shades of “Sharknado.” Great acting, though.

17. Season 2, Episode 2: “White Bear”

Full disclosure. We’re divided on this one. One

Vincent D'Onofrio Goes From Hitman To Crime Boss In New TV Series 'Godfather Of Harlem'

Playing men of power is nothing new for Vincent D'Onofrio, who continues to portray Wilson Fisk (aka the Kingpin) on the Marvel Netflix superhero series Daredevil, and the Wizard of Oz himself in the short-lived, dramatic NBC fantasy show Emerald City. Well, the actor is ready to take on another such role — though grounded considerably more than the others in reality — this time starring opposite Forest Whitaker on the Epix television true crime series Godfather of Harlem. Given a straight to series order by the network, the show sees Vincent as Vincent "Chin" Gigante, a former boxer who few take seriously... but should. He appears dimwitted, but his mind is always working — to the point where he feigns insanity to avoid prosecution, and the series will chart his rise in the Genovese crime family as a hitman to, ultimately, boss of the family.

Telluride Film Review: ‘Boy Erased’

Telluride Film Review: ‘Boy Erased’
Who benefits from gay conversion therapy? Do the parents, who send their queer and questioning kids to be “cured” of their same-sex attractions? Do the young people who are brainwashed into denying the urges they believe to be sinful? Does God? The answer, at least according to Joel Edgerton’s earnestly anti-heteronormative drama “Boy Erased,” appears to be that only the charlatans who run such camps seem to thrive, while everyone else winds up hating themselves.

Boy Erased” isn’t the first film to share an insider’s perspective of how these camps operate. It’s not even the first film this year: An empowering, female-driven look at such a facility, “The Miseducation of Cameron Post” won the dramatic competition at Sundance. But Edgerton takes a different, more respectful tone to the subject, not outright ridiculing those who believe that homosexuality is a choice, but preaching to the converted all

Filmworker

Stanley Kubrick had a dedicated assistant, and not one who simply held the master’s cinematic paintbrushes. He staffed research, production, post-production and marketing departments all on his own. Tony Zierra’s brisk documentary teaches us much about a genius director, the assistant that devoted himself entirely to the director’s mission, and the nature of work and ambition.

Vincent D’Onofrio Asks Twitter Followers If It’s Ok to Play an ‘Irredeemable Racist’ Right Now

Vincent D’Onofrio asked his Twitter followers on Sunday whether it would be Ok for him to play an “irredeebable racist” in an upcoming project given the current political climate.

‘Saving Private Ryan’ 20th Anniversary: 20 of the Most Brutal War Films Ever Made (Videos)

‘Saving Private Ryan’ 20th Anniversary: 20 of the Most Brutal War Films Ever Made (Videos)
The sight of a soldier carrying his own severed arm is one of the many horrific images of “Saving Private Ryan,” which 20 years ago earned instant acclaim for its unflinching depiction of the brutality of D-Day. But it’s far from the only film to show the horrors of war. Here are some of the most brutal war movies ever made.

Fury (2014): This David Ayer WWII film starts with bits of brain being cleaned from the inside of a M4 Sherman tank, and continues to get uglier from there as a tank unit led by Staff Sgt. Don “Wardaddy” Collier (Brad Pitt) begins its final charge into Nazi Germany in 1945.

Full Metal Jacket (1987): While Stanley Kubrick’s Vietnam film is more known for its first half at boot camp, the second half shows a grisly battle as Private Joker (Matthew Modine) watches as his crew is slain by a hidden sniper.

Lost Stanley Kubrick Screenplay ‘Burning Secret’ From 1956 Unearthed
A lost, unfinished script written by Stanley Kubrick in 1956 called “Burning Secret” has been found in Wales, and is so close to completion that it could be made into a feature film.

According to The Guardian, the screenplay was found by Nathan Abrams, a professor of film at Bangor University in Wales, who says he came across it while doing research for his upcoming book about Kubrick’s final film, “Eyes Wide Shut.”

The script is dated October 24, 1956 — one year before he found his breakthrough hit with the Kirk Douglas antiwar film “Paths of Glory” — and bears the stamp of MGM’s script department. Kubrick moved to the U.K. in 1961 after becoming disillusioned with the Hollywood system, and many of his personal writings are archived there.

Happy #NationalDonutDay, or as we like to call it, Friday. Whether it’s glazed, sprinkled, jelly filled, or in the case of those revolting eclairs from “Van Wilder,” (gulp) dog semen, we’ll take a donut over a croissant or the heartiest of bagels any day. And these colorful treats always look good on screen, so this round lifesaver has found its way into some particularly famous moments of movies and TV. To quote Homer Simpson, “Donuts, is there anything they can’t do?”

Rip R. Lee Ermey. Only he could find a way to make the donut the ultimate motivational tool in this chilling scene from Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket.”

The Top 10 Quotes from “Full Metal Jacket”

It’s almost impossible to make an entire list of quotes from Full Metal Jacket without lapsing into a profanity-laden tirade that ends and begins with an insult that’s intended to make the recipient wish they’d thought of anything other than enlisting in the Marines. But the late great R. Lee Ermey was among the best at making guys twice his size feel about an inch high or lower and no one did it better in this movie. Throughout his career this was probably the absolute best performance he put forth that showed him actively berating just about every person that

The Predator Star Boyd Holbrook Hints At Throwbacks To The First Film

More than 30 years ago, The Predator arrived at a time when the Vietnam war movie was arguably at its peak.

In dealing with heavy themes like the anti-war movement and those soldiers crippled by nightmarish visions and Ptsd, films in the vein of Platoon, Full Metal Jacket and Apocalypse Now earned critical acclaim in what proved to be a heyday for one of cinema’s most brutal subgenres.

But in 1987, John McTiernan’s cult classic flipped the tables and thrust its core cast – a cast headed up by action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger – into Central America’s Northern Triangle, where the hunters soon became the hunted. The end result was one of the most quotable and action-packed movies of the ’80s, and one that served as perhaps the perfect tonic to Vietnam war films and their potent subtext.

Fast forward to now, and with Shane Black cooking up a bold new rendition of The Predator,
