Quick question: what were you doing last night? Were you on 'Chelsea Lately' to celebrate Chelsea Handler's final show? No? Are you sure? Because everyone was there.
Don't cry, Jaden, 'After Earth' wasn't that bad. OK, so, maybe it was that bad.
Based on the cumulative scores for the year, Rotten Tomatoes has revealed the 10 worst movies of 2013, and, yes, Jaden Smith's on-screen team up with his dad, Will Smith, made the cut. What else is on the list? Let's find out.
It's clear from the start that 'Getaway' is not a good movie. The opening sequence is a mess of different video stocks and flashbacks, an easy tell that a team of editors tore out their hair trying to skip as much boring exposition while leaving the first scenes cogent. But once former race car driver Brent Magna (Ethan Hawke) is behind the wheel of his stolen souped-up vehicle and is receiving crazy, destructive orders from the disembodied voice of Jon Voight, there's at least plenty of smashy-smashy to keep you occupied. The bad guy has some master plan – kidnapping Hawke's wife so that he'll be a mobile slave to his chaotic whims is part of laying the ground work.
But more than seeing traffic destruction on the streets of Sofia, Bulgaria (this month's production location low-bidder) there's a bigger catastrophe. Fifteen minutes into the movie, Selena Gomez shows up.
You know it because it's happened to you.
You settle into your seat at you local multiplex, excited to see the latest movie starring your favorite actor. The lights dim, the projector kicks into action, the movie starts and then
'Spring Breakers' can now be yours foreverrrrr as the film hits DVD and Blu-ray starting today. The disc includes a host of bonus features including a three-part documentary on the making of the film, an audio commentary with writer/director Harmony Korine and a host of deleted scenes.
Speaking of those deleted scenes, today we have an exclusive for you. 'Spring Breakers' stars Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, Selena Gomez and Rachel Korine are here talking about their favorite scene that didn't make it into the movie; that time they made this poor guy drop his pants on camera.
Desperately trying to save the life of his kidnapped wife, a former race car driver commandeers a custom Shelby Cobra Mustang, taking it and its unwitting owner on a high-speed race against time.
Harmony Korine's 'Spring Breakers' is the outlaw fantasy of four college girls (or maybe just two of them) behaving very, very badly with guns and bikinis and one delightfully trashy white rapper. But the most crucial takeaway from the film isn't satire of primitive American debauchery -- instead it's how we want to perceive these women and why the agency they have over their lives and bodies feels too fantastical to believe.
10 Wholesome Actresses Who Reinvented Themselves With Risky Roles
James Franco might not be the best actor working in movies today, but he's almost certainly the most fearless. His choices are as unpredictable as they are gutsy. He'll try just about anything: television dramas ('Freaks & Geeks'), soap operas ('General Hospital'), comedies ('Pineapple Express'), and big blockbusters ('Spider-Man,' 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'). His latest role, in Harmony Korine's 'Spring Breakers,' might be his craziest and most daring to date. He plays Alien -- pronounced "A-Leen" in Franco's South Florida drawl -- a drug dealer and aspiring rapper who likes to boast that he's from another planet. Franco's performance is suitably extraterrestrial: hilarious, disturbing, deranged, poignant and endlessly quotable. In an instant classic scene, Alien shows off all his prized possessions -- machine guns and money and nunchucks and 'Scarface' DVDs on constant repeat -- while screaming "Look at my s---!" Alien's orders are superfluous; any time Franco's onscreen, you can't take your eyes off him.
