Last Drive-In Host Joe Bob Briggs Talks Redneck Movie History at SXSW

Last Drive-In Host Joe Bob Briggs Talks Redneck Movie History at SXSW
Ahead of his weekly Shudder series set to debut this month, Joe Bob Briggs paid a visit to the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas, for SXSW. The legendary TV star has put together a two-hour stage show called How Rednecks Saved Hollywood, and it's needless to say that it's must-see for any fan of Joe Bob.

Accompanied by Darcy the mail girl from The Last Drive-In on Shudder, Briggs delves through the complete history of American rednecks and their involvement in cinema. Having the opportunity to witness the SXSW premiere for How Rednecks Saved Hollywood, I can attest that Joe Bob's theses is far better than any Ted Talk you'll ever see.

In the SXSW stage show, Briggs presents over 200 clips and movie stills from a century's worth of redneck movies. A self-professed redneck himself, Briggs takes the talk a tad further by managing to identify the very first redneck in history,

Grimm Season 6 Episode 12 Review: Zerstorer Shrugged

It's not often that an episode of television makes me want to slam my head into the wall repeatedly, but unfortunately Grimm Season 6 Episode 12 is just such an episode.

When reasonably intelligent characters behave in mind-numbingly stupid fashion, one finds it difficult to actually make it through the story.

It's practically impossible to count up the number of bad choices the protagonists made, but here are a few:

Renard, Adalind, and Monroe held a loud discussion about Diana using the magic stick to reopen the mirror portal, well within earshot of Diana. Surprise! She reopened it, allowing Zerstörer to escape. When Team Grimm realized that Zerstörer was probably after the Magic Stick to fix his Magic Staff, Nick did not immediately hop in his car and leave the city. Nick, Hank, and Wu went to the precinct and stocked up on firearms, despite Nick's gun having zero effect on Zerstörer earlier.

'The Wailing' wins top awards at Bifan

Asia’s largest genre film fest, the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (Bifan), wrapped its 20th edition today with Na Hong Jin’s The Wailing winning the top Best of Bucheon prize as well as the Audience Award.

“The Wailing is a film that many people worked on for five, six years. I had so many doubts along the way, but kept to what I thought would be right, which is why I’m so happy to receive this great award from you. Thank you very much for telling me to keep going down the road I want to go. I will do so without wavering now,” he said about

Comic Book Review – Judge Dredd Megazine #371

Villordsutch reviews Judge Dredd Megazine #371…

Borag Thungg! After spending a solid month in the Iso-Cubes relating to a “cream before jam” incident on a scone, unfortunately I let last month’s Megazine slip me by! Not to worry though as in this issue we have two brand new stories starting with the Judge Dredd: Dust to Dust and the return of Lawless, the continuation of quite frankly the brilliant Realm of the Damned, and bowing out the end of the excellent Judge Dredd: Dust.

Dredd’s dead, Judge Rico’s in the Cursed Earth looking for the “Cowboys” and Chief Judge Hershey – on the advice of Judge Beeny – is contacting Texas-City for help with a loan of Judges!? What!?

A Breakdown Of Why Kung Fury Is So Damn Awesome

You aren’t ready for Kung Fury. The world isn’t ready for Kung Fury. The yet-to-be-explored universes that exist all around us aren’t ready for Kung Fury.

Words can’t describe what in the hell filmmaker David Sandberg accomplished with his kung-fu-nazi-fighting-time-traveling epic short film, and I couldn’t hack into the future to discover what new phrases we eventually create to praise such 80s action lunacy, but I’m going to give it a whirl in an unconventional method. Below are the notes I took while Kung Fury was karate-chopping his way through street thugs and angry machines, and instead of turning them into coherent paragraphs and into a formal review, I’m just going to comment on the perfect journey that took place.

But before that, let me actually do my film critic thing and offer my opinion on Kung Fury, which will undoubtedly go down

Goodbye to The Civil Wars: A Look Back at Their Top 5 Songs

Goodbye to The Civil Wars: A Look Back at Their Top 5 Songs
The beloved folk duo has officially called it quits.

Sad news in the music world this week as we officially say goodbye to The Civil Wars.

The beloved folk duo has truly called it quits after going on hiatus in November 2012 over what they called "internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition." Nevertheless, their sophomore self-titled album debuted atop the Billboard 200 just months later in 2013.

In a press release issued Tuesday, the Nashville pair bid farewell to their fans and offered up a final song (more on that later).

"I am saddened and disappointed by the ending of this duo, to say the very least," said vocalist Joy Williams. "Jp is a tremendous musician, and I will always be grateful for the music we were able to create together."

Williams also noted that she will continue to create new music. "I'm excited to share the music that I am writing and recording in the midst of this

Travel with The Civil Wars to Paris in new video, 'Dust To Dust'

Travel with The Civil Wars to Paris in new video, 'Dust To Dust'
Not so very long ago, The Civil WarsJoy Williams and John Paul White actually liked each other and enjoyed each other’s company. The now -defunct duo look back to that time in the video for “Dust To Dust,” the haunting second single from the pair’s sophomore self-titled set. The video features what they claim to be found footage from a 2011 trip to Paris. Yeah, “found” footage, just like “Blair Witch Project” or “Paranormal Activity.” Watch them stroll in Paris. Enjoy the cafes and book stores vicariously. Seriously, it’s a clever way to deal with how to create a video...

The Civil Wars – The Civil Wars Review

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

The concentrated romantic themes of the Civil War’s debut album ‘Barton Hollow’ and the performances that

followed on their tours led many listeners to believe duo John Paul White and Joy Williams were a couple. Late last year this was proved to be very far from the truth when the group cancelled a UK tour and announced an indefinite hiatus due to ‘internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition.’ It seemed the success of their debut had driven a wedge between the duo.

It was some surprise when it was announced that a self-titled album of new material was to be released on a major label. Fortunately for us, much of the work on this record had been completed before the rift became an impasse. For anyone with any doubt, lead single ‘The One That Got Away’ did not signal reconciliation and is certainly not

Courtney Stodden 'not gonna say no' to porn offers just yet

  • Pop2it
Child bride Courtney Stodden is a child no more ... technically. The girl -- er, woman -- who famously married 50-year-old actor Doug Hutchison when she was just 16 turned 18 on Wednesday (Aug. 29) and was promptly inundated with offers to do hard-core porn.

According to TMZ, at least four companies -- including Brazzers.com and Babes.com -- have contacted the now-legal Stodden about appearing in their movies, one of which is entitled "Happily Humping My Hubby" and is based on Stodden's real-life experience.

And here's the kicker: Stodden might actually be interested. She tells TMZ she's been "flooded" with offers, and even though her now-52-year-old husband is freaked out about the thought of her having sex with another guy, the idea isn't off the table.

"I'm not gonna say yes right now ... and I'm not gonna say no," she says.

And so a nation waits ...

Lapd Called to Miley Cyrus' House; Beyoncé Wants a New Job; Courtney Stodden Starts Work on Reality Show

ReelzChannel Celebrity Rundown

TMZ reports that police raced to Miley Cyrus' house last night after a 911 caller reported a home invasion. Luckily, it was a false alarm, and cops believe it was a prank. The prankster could face criminal charges if caught.

***

Beyoncé may have a new job soon. The L.A. Times is reporting that the pop star has been shopping around some documentary footage following her life and career. With a celebrity as private as Beyoncé Knowles, it's a little surprising she'd be interested in working on a documentary about her life, so it makes sense that Knowles wants to direct the project. Her resume already includes singer, dancer, fashion mogul and actress, why not add documentary director to the mix?

Child bride Courtney Stodden revealed on Twitter that she is starting work on a reality show. No details about the show have been released, but it's

Courtney Stodden lands reality show - or so she claims

  • Pop2it
Child bride Courtney Stodden has finally realized her dream of having her own reality show. Well, maybe. On Monday (July 30), 17-year-old Stodden tweeted that she'll be taking a tweet break while since she's "packing up & heading out to shoot a reality show."

What is this show and where will the hordes of Stodden fans be able to watch it? Well, those details aren't quite worked out yet. Momager Krista Keller confirms to Celebuzz that shooting has begun at a a "top-secret location," but no more.

"People are going to be very excited," says Keller, who also adds that both she and Courtney's husband -- 52-year-old "Lost" alum Doug Hutchison -- will be taking part in the show.

What do you think Zappers? Did Courtney really land a reality show or is this another Diy attempt?

‘Gold on the Ceiling’ Video: The Black Keys, Harmony Korine, Baby Twinz, Technical Difficulties …
Good morning and welcome back to your nightmares, which will likely be filled with the memory of Patrick Carney and Dan Auerbach's adult baby schtick, should you make it through the entire "Gold on the Ceiling" Video. Harmony Korine directs this one, and the weirdo factor is high: baby twins with matching giant-baby twins; pastel medical scrubs; blank expressions; unidentifiable yard animals (is that a goat?); and a purposefully wonky audio track that keeps cutting out so you can focus on messages like "We Love Lootcake." The entire video seems to be sewn together from creepy GIFs, into which it will surely return. Dust to dust, etc.

La's Linda Vista Hospital Retiring from the Horror Movie Business

La's Linda Vista Hospital Retiring from the Horror Movie Business
There probably isn't a single filming location in the world I've been to as often as La's Linda Vista Community Hospital. In the thirty years since the hospital closed shop, the complex, said by some to be the most haunted place in Los Angeles, has served as a set for countless film and television productions, including Se7en, Rob Zombie's upcoming Lords of Salem, True Blood, and FEARnet's own 30 Days of Night: Dust to Dust, The Dark Path Chronicles, and Fear Clinic. Now at long last the complex is reopening, as a senior living home. More after the jump. According to The Los Angeles Times, the Linda Vista "is set to be converted into apartments for low-income seniors in a $40-million makeover. Linda...

'The Wire' Actor Talks Marine Tours

'The Wire' Actor Talks Marine Tours
It can be argued that Benjamin Busch is a modern-day Renaissance man. Not only has he served two tours of duty as a U.S. Marine in Iraq, but he played Officer Anthony Colicchio on "The Wire" and appeared on "The West Wing" and "Homicide," among other programs. Now he can add "writer" to his ever-growing list of occupations.

Busch, inspired by a number of life-altering events, wrote "Dust to Dust," a beautiful meditation on war, loss and the larger questions of life and death, in which he chronicles his return from Iraq and the death of his parents.

He talked with The Huffington Post about the book and his thoughts on the profound connection between acting and the military.

You have such an interesting resume.

My impulses began very young, and although they seem very diverse I kind of see them intertwined. I was drawn to build and create art young.
