Some of us look more like our parents than others, but these kids are the spitting images of their famous moms and dads (lucky them) – actually, in some of these cases, it’s the kids who are the famous ones.
I guess the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree with these folks…
Especially now that every single person on the planet can review every single thing on the planet whenever they feel like it. But that leaves us with a whole bunch of hilarious one-star movie reviews from very unsatisfied customers.
Here are some reviews that will probably leave you laughing.
“In an interview, Daniel Kaluuya revealed that there was actually a good amount of improvisation in Get Out, especially in the scene with the major plot twist: “I couldn’t do that scene the way it was scripted, really. That was something that we kind of made up. When he was asking Rose to give me the keys, all that stuff was made up in a day. It just felt natural because what was scripted didn’t feel right in the space it was in, and Jordan [Peele] allowed us to do that. He was open enough to see that.”
Director Todd Phillips said that he played the film’s score for Joaquin Phoenix because he “wanted the music to affect and infect the set in a way.” During the first take as the score was playing, Philipps revealed that “as Joaquin is struggling with Arthur’s smile, this little tear appears, and we just had the scene and we moved on.”
Samuel L. Jackson was specifically asked about this line in an interview, and he couldn’t 100% verify if it was in the script or not, but then Jake Gyllenhaal chimed in and said, “It was improvised. I’m here to attest that was improvised.”
Tom Holland revealed in an interview that only a couple people were on set to film Tony Stark’s death scene: Kevin Feige (Marvel’s president), the Russo brothers (the directors), Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Robert Downey Jr., and himself.
The four cast members showed up to set and were given a loose outline of what was going to be shot: “They kind of told us what was going to happen – or what they wanted to happen – and then we just sort of improvised.” Holland said it was a “really, really interesting way to shoot such a pivotal scene in the movie.”
8. DiCaprio’s bloody hand in Django Unchained was because he actually cut himself.
Leo said that the cast and crew gave him a standing ovation after the scene was finished, and he kept acting in the scene because “it was more interesting to watch Quentin’s and Jamie’s reaction off-camera than to look at my hand.”
9. Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman’s dinner conversation in Logan.
Patrick Stewart revealed that he and Hugh Jackman improvised an eight-minute scene at the dinner table, per director James Mangold’s request: “When you get to that moment, why don’t you talk about your history a little bit more? Fill it out with something. Whatever feels appropriate to you.”
According to Gad, “Improv is definitely always part of the journey, and they were amazing collaborators in letting me just come up with something to say, some of which is in there. I remember saying as a joke, ‘I’ve been impaled,’ and I was shocked when I watched the movie and they animated this and kept this in the film.’”
“It’s just… bad. The story is all over the place, the acting isn’t really all that great, and the ending is just stupid. I watched it once quite a while ago and was unimpressed.”
2. Gone with the Wind (1939)
“Scarlett O’Hara is spoiled, selfish, and self-absorbed, and Rhett Butler is a fuckboy. Yes they’re made for each other, but mainly to keep them from poisoning the general population.”
3. Mary Poppins (1964)
“I’ve never really understood the hype around Mary Poppins.”
4. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
“This movie glorifies racist stereotypes, organized crime, child marriage, and utter inauthenticity. I also hate to say this because she was utterly lovely to look at, but Audrey Hepburn’s performance is completely unbelievable. It’s a bad, bad movie.”
5. The Wizard of Oz (1939)
“I don’t know why, but I’ve always found something awful about The Wizard of Oz. I don’t think it’s that great.”
6. Casablanca (1942)
“This movie is SO boring and overrated. I had to watch it for my film history class, and then I found myself rewatching it three separate times because I kept falling asleep!”
7. West Side Story (1961)
“West Side Story doesn’t bring anything interesting to the table. It’s just another Romeo and Juliet movie and I’m frankly sick of movies using that trope.”
8. Rebel Without a Cause (1955)
“The acting is terrible in Rebel Without a Cause and James Dean is very overrated.”
9. All About Eve (1950)
“I’ve heard for years this movie is incredible, chilling and thrilling, and then I watched it and found an utterly lifeless, dull movie. Absolutely nothing happened in this movie at all. It was frankly one of the most boring movies I’ve ever seen.”
10. The Seven Year Itch (1955)
“I love Marilyn Monroe, but this movie is just truly awful. It’s incredibly boring and the main character’s paranoia and conversations with himself really ruined the plot for me.”
11. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
“I love old Christmas movies, but I can’t stand It’s a Wonderful Life. It’s a schmaltzy piece of mediocre film that’s somehow managed to get classified as something no one is allowed to criticize. If you want your Jimmy Stewart fix at Christmas time, I recommend watching The Shop Around the Corner instead.”
12. The Birds (1963)
“The Birds is tedious to the point of boredom for most of its runtime. If you take out all the long, dialogue-less scenes of driving, parking, and walking from the freshly parked car to the next shot, this movie would be like 20 minutes long.”
13. A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)
“A Streetcar named Desire is about an abusive relationship that has been glorified as a passionate romance for decades. Brando’s character is abusive to both his love interest and her sister, and when I first saw it in my twenties, I was stunned that it’s lauded as this great film. No thanks.”
14. Rosemary’s Baby (1968)
“Rosemary’s Baby is just hours of lackluster content with no real storyline. I found it very boring and the end was a disaster.”
15. Citizen Kane (1941)
“People say Citizen Kane is the greatest film of all time, but I think it’s incredibly boring. The characters are flat and very detached. It’s just really hard to connect with them.”
What do you think?
Are there any old films that get a ton of praise that you believe are really overrated? Tell us about them in the comments!
Beauvillier decided to reach out to Kendrick on Twitter and, to his surprise, he got a little help from his friends. Actually, I’m not sure if he even knows these people, but they’re probably his friends now.
Here’s how Beauvillier tried to get Kendrick’s attention.
Okay, probably not the most original introduction in the history of mankind, but, still, he gave it a shot.
But then something miraculous happened. People on Twitter got behind “Beau” as he’s known to hockey fans and they started to chip in with stories (that could possibly be categorized as “tall tales”) and compliments to help boost Beauvillier’s image to Kendrick so she’d go out on a date with him.
There was the time Beau saved those kittens.
Beau, thank you again for saving all those kittens at that animal shelter in the Bahamas when the Hurricane hit. Still amazed that you swam to Miami with them on your back.
The folks at @NASA called, looks like they’re gonna need you to save the world from another planet-ending asteroid again. Yeah I know, it’s getting old saving the world, but face it you’re our only hope!
Thanks, the entire world owes you for your sacrifice!
When I was 8-years-old, I stayed home sick from school and was all alone in the house. My older brother had rented a movie the night before, so I decided to spend my sick day watching The Evil Dead…
It totally traumatized me but also gave me a love for horror movies that continues to this day.
People shared what scary flicks traumatized them and left a lasting impression. These responses come to us from the Buzzfeed Community.
Let’s see yours in the comments!
1. Burnt Offerings (1976)
“It’s this movie from the late ’70s that no one’s ever heard of for some reason. It’s basically about a family rents a large estate one summer and a whole lot of weirdness goes down. It will mess you up for life.”
2. Evil Dead (2013)
“This remake was so terrifying that I couldn’t finish watching it the first time. It took me a whole year to gather up the courage to try watching it again.”
3. The Hitcher (1986)
“It’s been way too long since I’ve seen this, but it still terrifies the crap out of me!”
4. Night of the Living Dead (1968)
“My grandmother had 80 acres in the middle of nowhere in Wisconsin. I saw this movie when I was 5 or 6 years old and was terrified to sleep in that house at night because it seemed like the perfect setting for those zombies. It still creeps me out.”
5. Tusk (2014)
“I thought it sounded like a funny premise, but it kept me up the whole night and bothered me for weeks. I’ve watched a lot of horror movies. I don’t know what it is about this one, but it absolutely haunted me.”
6. Child’s Play (1988)
“I was nine and Chucky somehow reminded me of my American girl doll. I had to put her away in my closet every night so that she wouldn’t stare at me with her huge eyes and buck teeth trying to plot my death while I slept.”
7. Arachnophobia (1990)
“I watched this when I was a kid and I haven’t had a worry-free shower in 16 years.”
8. The Descent (2006)
“This is the most disturbing, gory, hopeless movie ever made. I legitimately wish I could erase it from my brain.”
9. Phantasm (1979)
“I saw it when I was about eight and — although I had already seen other horror movies because my parents were huge horror fans — this movie was the only one to give me nightmares. To this very day I get apprehensive around undertakers, especially if they are tall and wearing a dark suit.”
10. Hereditary (2018)
“I went and saw a late night showing of this with a friend, knowing absolutely nothing about the film. Then, when the trailers for new movies started playing and they were all scary movie trailers, I knew that we were in for a ride. We were terrified!”
11. The Witch (2013)
“I watched this one night randomly at 3 AM because I couldn’t sleep and I love witch movies. It scared the heck out of me! It reminded me of the movie The Village, but scarier. It seemed so real. I will never watch it again!”
12. I Spit on Your Grave (1978)
“I can deal with a ton of violence and gore, but Lord, the sadism in that movie was off the charts.”
13. The Entity (1982)
“If you haven’t seen it, be thankful. I saw this when I was 10 and it is no less disturbing to me in my 40’s. Most horror movies nowadays don’t bother me, but maybe it’s because this one desensitized me.”
14. Funny Games (1997)
“You can’t make a list about movies that mess you up without mentioning this one. My friend and I watched the original German version. I thought I was going to throw up and made my friends turn it off.”
15. The Strangers (2008)
“This should definitely be on this list. I watched it back when it first came out and — to this day — I won’t answer the door if I’m home alone (unless I’ve ordered food, of course).”
My 6yo moaned and groaned at the movie theatre during the trailers, because “We came here to see Frozen 2, not all of this.” I obviously told her a tale of how my generation had to sit patiently through the travesty of “commercials,” and walk uphill to and from school.
What are your favorite romantic films from the past ten years? Ones that you think are pretty underrated and that might’ve flown under the radar?
Well, here’s a big list of them that you might want to add to your various streaming queues, courtesy of responses the Buzzfeed Community.
Let us begin!
1. Love, Simon (2018)
“First of all, it was one of the first films I had ever seen that featured a gay main character within a love story. I honestly cried multiple times. I felt like it was so modern and realistic. It really hit close to me.”
2. Call Me By Your Name (2017)
“It has to be one of the best love stories I’ve ever seen portrayed on film! Not only is the journey between the two of them so beautiful, raw, and heartfelt, but the soundtrack and scenery just makes you swoon even harder.”
3. Juliet, Naked (2018)
“Honestly, I think I might be the only person to have seen this movie. Ethan Hawke is perfect and it’s a lovely reminder of how much I loved him in the ’90s. Please go watch it so I have someone to talk about it with!”
4. Friends with Benefits (2011)
“Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake are hilarious and have amazing chemistry!”
5. Brooklyn (2015)
“First, I loved how they chose a real Irish actress to play the main character. Second, this film takes place so long ago, yet there are so many relatable topics to the present; This includes immigration and falling in love with someone who is the complete opposite of who you’re used to dating. Lastly, I really liked how it wasn’t just about dating, it also explored family and death.”
6. Sparrows Dance (2012)
“Noah Buschel made a great movie about an agoraphobic actress (Marin Ireland) who hasn’t left her apartment or changed her routine in years after a huge nervous breakdown. She begins to fall in love with the plumber she has to call when her toilet overflows. The plumber (Paul Sparks) is understanding and slowly brings her walls down. It’s honestly so good, and my description doesn’t do it justice.”
7. Beginners (2010)
“It’s about a guy named Oliver who’s basically reflecting on his father’s life after he passes away. His father came out at the age of 75 and began a relationship with a younger man, which pushed him to be more honest and open with himself and those around him. While Oliver begins exploring his father’s life, he meets and begins to fall in love with a woman who has her own father issues. It’s honestly such a beautiful movie that deserves more recognition.”
8. Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)
“It’s such a beautiful love story, but I think people dismiss it because they’re vampires.”
9. Man Up (2015)
“Starring Lake Bell and Simon Pegg, it’s a British film about two people who are perfect and hilarious together! It’s kind of an unconventional premise, but it ends up working so well. I’m shocked more people don’t know about it.”
10. Like Crazy (2012)
“It’s such a raw, realistic portrayal of what relationships are like in your early twenties. The jealousy, back and forth breaking up, and the reality of how hard it is to end a relationship even when you know it’s not working. I think a lot of people can watch this movie and will be reminded of their first adult relationship, and what it’s like to grow apart.”
11. Five Feet Apart (2019)
“It did not the get the credit it deserved! It was pushed aside as just another movie romanticizing illnesses, but it definitely did not romanticize cystic fibrosis at all! I started crying halfway through and didn’t stop. 10/10.”
12. The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)
“It highlights a teenager, who is just starting to show signs of schizophrenia and depression, but is also learning about friendship and first loves. It hits me right in the feels every time I watch it. Also, Emma Watson’s hair basically defined the decade.”
13. Set It Up (2018)
“Honestly, my favorite rom-com ever! The movie has an amazing cast, with a funny and original storyline. The chemistry between the characters, the perfect slow burn that isn’t annoying, hilarious best friends, and a stereotypical dramatic airport scene. The movie has EVERYTHING in it you could ever want from a rom-com. The fact that more people don’t appreciate it is a straight up crime.”
14. The Giant Mechanical Man (2012)
“The Giant Mechanical Man with Jenna Fischer and Chris Messina is just a sweet movie about two regular people who are a little lost, and looking to be seen.”
15. The Switch (2010)
“The premise sounds like it would be one big Judd Apatow movie with crude humor, which I have no problem with, but it’s actually incredibly sweet. The relationship between Wally and Sebastian is heartwarming. I highly recommend, because it’s one of my favorite movies.”
