The 15 Strangest Movies Based on TV Shows

If you prefer watching people sit on a beach to actually sitting on a beach for Memorial Day weekend, there’s a new Baywatch movie in theaters today, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. Though Baywatch endured in syndication for over a decade, it’s not like there was a massive fanbase out there begging for a big-screen version; the film, directed by Seth Gordon, is mostly a lighthearted sendup of the old series about heroic lifeguards.

‘Baywatch’ Review: This Might Actually Be Worse Than the TV Show

One of the least funny running jokes in the new Baywatch movie — which is really saying something because there are a lot of unfunny running jokes in the new Baywatch movie — involves these lifeguards constantly inserting themselves into all sorts of situations that fall well beyond their jurisdiction. They refer to laughable old cases that have nothing to do with rescuing drowners, a nod to the old Baywatch TV show that serves as the film’s source material and chief target. But the case the takes up most of the film’s inexplicably expansive runtime (116 minutes! For a Baywatch movie!) is just as absurd, with the lifeguards trying to bring down a drug ring and real-estate swindle centered around their Southern California beach. Ha ... ha?

The Worst ‘King Arthur’ Reviews: Critics Are Raving!

Have you ever seen those movie ads on TV filled with gushing quotes from critics and thought to yourself, “I saw that movie; it was terrible.

Early Reviews Call ‘Wonder Woman’ the Best DC Universe Movie Yet

So far the reviews of the DC Extended Universe movies have been ... uh, what’s the opposite of good? Bad. They’ve been bad. The first three movies — Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad — have an average Rotten Tomatoes score of 36. That is bad. The opposite of good. For sure.

A Pixar Director Reveals the Four Essential Ingredients in All the Studio’s Movies

Over 22 years, Pixar Animation Studios has released 17 movies (the 18th, Cars 3, opens in theaters in June) made by hundreds of artists and animators. Their stories feature princesses, monsters, ants, robots, superheroes, fish, and the embodiments of human emotions; their settings range from a child’s suburban bedroom to the rat-infested kitchen of a Parisian restaurant. But all of these movies, no matter what they’re about or who made them, all share a few common elements, principles the filmmakers at Pixar use to guide their work.

Every Marvel Cinematic Universe Post-Credits Scene, Ranked

Strange but true: There are many more Marvel post-credits scenes than there are Marvel movies. By a wide margin. And the margin gets even wider with this weekend’s release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which has a whopping total of five different stingers strewn throughout its credits. The movie is like eight percent post-credits scenes.

25 ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Rumors That Turned Out to Be False

This is all James Gunn’s fault. The writer/director of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise left so many plot threads dangling in the first movie. Who was Peter Quill’s dad? What was the deal with Yondu? What was Thanos up to next? Would any other Guardians from the original Marvel comics show up? I mean, what did he expect the internet to do? Not spend the next three years speculating wildly (and mostly inaccurately) about his plans? Yeah no.

‘The Dark Tower’ Trailer Aims for the Heart

By this point in a big film’s marketing cycle, we typically would have seen a couple trailers, a ton of posters, lengthy magazine pieces, the works. In contrast, there has been so little concrete info out there on The Dark Tower, which opens in theaters in almost exactly three months, that some people (like, y’know, me) began to doubt whether the movie would open on time, or even if it existed at all.

The ‘Rampage’ Movie Plot Sounds Bananas (Because Giant Gorillas)

With the passing of the great James Brown, the title of the hardest working man in show business is up for grabs. We nominate Dwayne Johnson, a superman whose personal Kryptonite is more than 15 straight minutes of relaxation. In addition to headlining the Fast & Furious franchise, rebooting the Jumanji series, spearheading a variety of television projects, and running his own line of athletic wear, Johnson is also working on a big-screen version of Rampage, the classic 1980s arcade game about a bunch of giant monsters leaving a path of destruction across the United States.

Where Do Pixar’s ‘Cars’ Come From? Here’s Their Creative Director’s Amazing Theory

Children’s entertainment is full of anthropomorphized objects and animals. To kids, talking automobiles are no more or less strange than babies who are bosses or teenage turtles who get mutated into ninja warriors. But to the parents and adults who watch the Cars movies with these children, their internal logic and rules are a source of endless fascination.

Universal Quickly Developing a ‘Fast’ Spinoff for Johnson and Statham

It may not have made a lick of sense within the emotional continuity of the series, but it’s hard to argue that the comedic highlight of The Fate of the Furious was Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham’s snappy banter. Johnson’s Hobbs winds up in jail right across the hall from his old arch-nemesis Deckard Shaw, played by Statham, and their chemistry is immediate and hilarious. Their playful back-and-forth throughout F8 kept things light and fun even as Dominic Toretto sold out his beloved family to work for Charlize Theron’s evil hacker Cipher.
