It’s true: Animated Children’s Films are More Violent than Films for Adults


By web gangsta | Published:

We all grew up on Looney Toons, Tom & Jerry, Saturday morning cartoons – and old amusement park owners saying that they would have gotten away with it, if it weren’t for those meddling kids!

And if you were to sit down and watch those classic cartoons today – you’d see a rash of violence bestowed upon the characters to each other: faces blown off, coyotes plummeting to their deaths, anvils falling from the sky.

Hunters on a mission to kill. Coyotes on a mission to kill. Yellow parakeets on a mission to kill. Giant roosters on a mission to torture a dog. Continue reading IT’S TRUE: ANIMATED CHILDREN’S FILMS ARE MORE VIOLENT THAN FILMS FOR ADULTS

It’s true what the environmentalists say about technology – it’s here to ruin the Earth for years to come.

What is the Highest Grossing, Worst Film of All Time?


By web gangsta | Published:

It’s always a fun question to ask – what’s the WORST FILM YOU’VE EVER SEEN?

It’s very subjective.  What you may consider to be the Worst Film Ever could very well be considered a masterpiece of cinematography from those who know better.  Some people Web Watch knows think that TITANIC is the worst film ever made, and yet it had heaps of praise – and money – thrown at it.

The 12 Best Movies of All Time (according to Quentin Tarantino)


By web gangsta | Published:

Whether you like Quentin Tarantino’s work or not, you should be able to appreciate his contributions to Hollywood are incredible.

From Pulp Fiction to Kill Bill and everything else he’s worked on before and after, Tarantino has influenced the traditional movie-making process and proven that the best film study class can produce an Academy Award winning director.

Of course, Quentin’s “film study class” was “watching every film available at the video rental store”, but who hasn’t binge watched a VHS shelf or Netflix queue before?  The difference is that when video stores were omnipresent, the only way to judge a movie was by its packaging. Sometimes you’d win, sometimes you’d find a real clunker.  But it really was more hit than miss.

But in today’s Internet world, it’s easier to dismiss films that others say may not be worth watching. Will Netflix users produce the next Tarantino? One’s gut would say “yes”, but the likelihood of Netflix being the sole reason for that person’s success in the same vein that Tarantino had working at the video store is rather slim.

Favorite alcoholic beverages of adult film stars


By web gangsta | Published:

They say that being an adult film star is tough work.

All the lights, the pressure to perform on demand in front of a crowd of disinterested crew members. Having to remember one’s lines.

It’s enough to lead an actor or actress to drink… and to drink a lot.

How much money did Winthorpe and Valentine make with orange juice futures in Trading Places?


By web gangsta | Published:

One of the greatest comedy movies of the 1980’s was Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy in John Landis’ classic TRADING PLACES.

For those of you too young to remember (or too old to recall, take your pick), the film was a twist on either My Fair Lady or The Prince and The Pauper (also, take your pick), with a little bit of The Sting thrown in for good measure.  But where The Sting dealt with scamming money through horse racing, Trading Places did it by investing in orange juice futures

How much does it cost to book a band?


By web gangsta | Published:

A while back, Web Watch told you HOW MUCH IT COSTS TO BOOK THE DAN BAND, as seen in The Hangover.  Or, if you really want to relive the entire HANGOVER movie trilogy, Web Watch mentioned how much it would cost you to BOOK ZACK GALIFIANAKIS or KEN JEONG.

But maybe, just maybe – you’re a bit more sophisticated than that.

Maybe you have $20,000 burning a hole in your pocket and you don’t know what to do with it.
