Sharing trailers for upcoming junk quality films - what topic is about. I have zero interest in watching those films, but to be honest sometimes trailers are just enough to get kick out of it: ranging from laughter to improving own ego. Title inspired by "Garbage Pail Kids", since first entry sounds like a name of character from those cards. Enjoy.

Bad Johnson (2014): "A charismatic womanizer receives his comeuppance after his penis mysteriously leaves his body and takes human form."

That is basically a short story idea, and you clearly get everything it's going to give you from the trailer. It could actually be amazing if it were nightmarish and existential instead of a comedy. It could be a Kaufman/Jonze film.

I worked with Cam Gigandet on a short film way back when. I know his parents. Nice dude, but I can't take his face seriously.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Fuck For Forest (2013): The documentary follows Fuck for Forest, or FFF, a non-profit environmental organization founded in 2004 in Norway by Leona Johansson and Tommy Hol Ellingsen, which raises money for rescuing the world's rainforests by producing pornographic material or having sex in public.



Maybe I would watch short documentary on this subject, but almost 90 minutes seems too much.

Vampire Academy (2014): The story features a 17-year-old Dhampir (half-human half-vampire) guardian-in-training Rose Hathaway, and her royal Moroi (the peaceful, mortal vampires) best friend Lissa Dragomir living discreetly within our world, and had escaped from their boarding school St. Vladimir's Academy two years prior to the story. They are soon dragged back to the Academy and rediscovering the dangerous hierarchy within it, along with lies, rumors and secrets. Rose starts to form an attraction to her Russian Dhampir mentor, Dimitri Belikov. The two best friends begin to realize that the threat of the Strigoi (bloodthirsty, undead vampires) is bigger than ever.



This tries to nail so many tropes...

I like to think that we used to have bad trailers for great films (old ones), now it is the opposite. Yet I don't know what to think of this.

The Giver (2014). I'll skip the synopsis this time. Trailers overuses so many tropes to the point of being horrid: gray scale, fade outs, generic music, bad cutting and more... for a $25 million budget film.

Gods of Egypt director Alex Proyas calls film critics 'diseased vultures'

The film-maker attacks reviewers in a Facebook post after his film received almost universally negative reviews

http://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/mar/01/gods-of-egypt-director-alex-proyas-calls-film-critics-diseased-vultures

Director Alex Proyas has hit out at film critics after his latest film Gods of Egypt met with negative reviews.

The Australian film-maker, who was also behind I, Robot and The Crow, released a long Facebook post, calling critics “deranged idiots” and “diseased vultures”. It followed his latest film receiving a string of bad reviews and failing to perform at the box office.

“Seems most critics spend their time trying to work out what most people will want to hear,” he wrote. “How do you do that? Why these days it is so easy … just surf the net to read other reviews or what bloggers are saying – no matter how misguided an opinion of a movie might be before it actually comes out.”

Gods of Egypt had sparked controversy after posters revealed a largely white cast, despite a plot inspired by classic mythology. It stars Gerard Butler and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as warring Egyptian gods and Geoffrey Rush as the Egyptian sun god. Feedback was so poor that studio Lionsgate and Proyas apologised for the film’s lack of diversity.

But the film’s bad reviews (it currently holds a 12% rating on Rotten Tomatoes) and weak box office (it made $14m in its opening US weekend, from an $140m budget) has led to many calling it the year’s first disaster.

“We have a pack of diseased vultures pecking at the bones of a dying carcass,” Proyas went on to write. “Trying to peck to the rhythm of the consensus. I applaud any film-goer who values their own opinion enough to not base it on what the pack-mentality says is good or bad.”

I watched this on Netflix a few months back. It's bad, but fun-bad, mostly, but not as fun as it should have been. It makes the bold artistic choice to have every character be intensely unlikeable from tip to tail.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Yeah, that one looks bad and all, but holy shit, how did I miss Pass Thru the first time around?

Just looked up the writer/director/star/visionary on IMDb. He always casts himself in the lead in his movies, and his characters range from "misunderstood computer genius" to "misunderstood computer genius with mystical powers" to "literally God." He likes to be photographed from a specific angle, and in fact has used the EXACT SAME PHOTOGRAPH of himself on the cover art of two different movies.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

I haven't quite brought myself to watch a Neil Breen movie yet, but I know he's amazing.

He made his mark with "Fateful Findings," which is apparently a similar blend of narcissism, mysticism, and government conspiracies.
