Cameron Diaz's 10 Best Movies (According To Rotten Tomatoes)

Believe it or not, Cameron Diaz’s screen debut was actually The Mask in 1994 with Jim Carrey. America got its first glimpse of the beautiful model as an actress that year, and they could never get enough after that. Though her lowest-rated movie is Slackers at a measly 10%, and her most recent movies have been certified rotten on Rotten Tomatoes going all the way back to 2007, Cameron Diaz does have some real masterpieces hiding in the depths of her filmography.

Last week, I got to interview Devon Sawa about his role in the film Escape Plan: The Extractors. We delved into the role and his experiences, his upcoming films, and I got to gush a bit about my childhood crush on him. It was a great time. Check out the interview below:

Jessica Fisher: Hi, I’m Jessica Fisher from GeekTyrant, and I just have to say that twelve year old me is beside herself right now. I’m a big fan from way back., especially Now and Then.

Devon Sawa: Thank you so much. And you know what? That’s exactly how twelve year old me felt filming this movie with Sylvester Stallone. Not that I’m anything like Stallone. What I’m trying to say is thank you.

11 stars of classic '90s teen movies: Where are they now?
Charlie Lyne's documentary Beyond Clueless harks back to the classic teen movies that shaped the '90s.

Featuring narration from The Craft's Fairuza Balk (and with clips of Robin Tunney, Devon Sawa and co), it made us feel a sudden pang of nostalgia and sent us on our own trip down memory lane to find out where they - and the rest of the '90s teen movie crew - are now.

So, here are 11 stars from some of our favourite '90s teen movies, and what they've gone on to do since:

1. Devon Sawa - Idle Hands (1999)

Dreamy Devon Sawa starred as lazy stoner Anton Tobias - who turns mass murderer after his hand becomes possessed - in the horror comedy Idle Hands.

He went on to play teenage prophet of doom Alex Browning in Final Destination (2000), and appeared as similarly unstable Stan in Eminem's controversial music

Musical Scenes Written or Improvised by the Actor

As I compiled this list of musical scenes written or improvised by the actors who performed them, I quickly realized that I could never cover everything. The amount of music written by the actors in Christopher Guest films alone would more than double the size of this article. So I tried to limit myself to scenes and movies that I'd be able to give some fun insight on.

I literally got goosebumps rewatching some of these musical scenes. I hope you're inspired to give some of these movies a whirl in the DVD/Blu-ray player afterwards with a new sense of appreciation for the work that went into these musical moments.

Written By:

The Return of The King (2003) - "The Edge of Night"

Though the lyrics are straight out of the J.R.R Tolkien novel, the tune for "The Edge of Night" was written by actor Billy Boyd. After

Witness “A Resurrection” Trailer & Stills

Witness “A Resurrection” Trailer & Stills
It’s time to shed a light on A Resurrection, a suspense horror thriller from first-time writer/director Matt Orlando, coming to theaters and VOD on March 22nd. The film, from Jamie Kennedy Entertainment, stars Mischa Barton (The O.C.), Devon Sawa (Final Destination, Slackers, Idle Hands), Jonathan Michael Trautman, and (pour a sip…) Michael Clarke Duncan in his last film.

The synopsis is simple: “A down to earth school psychologist tries to help a mentally ill student who actually believes his brother is coming back from the grave for revenge on the students who killed him.”

The film introduces a new player in the horror genre, has a good cast playing against type, and plays with audience expectations from the get go. A review and an interview with the director are forthcoming, but, in the meantime, check out the trailer for A Resurrection.

DVD Playhouse--April 2012

DVD Playhouse—April 2012

By Allen Gardner

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (Warner Bros.) An eleven year-old boy (newcomer Thomas Horn, in an incredible debut) discovers a mysterious key amongst the possessions of his late father (Tom Hanks) who perished in 9/11. Determined to find the lock it matches, the boy embarks on a Picaresque odyssey across New York City. Director Stephen Daldry and screenwriter Eric Roth have fashioned a film both grand and intimate, beautifully-adapted from Jonathan Safran Foer’s novel, thought by most who read it to be unfilmable. Fine support from Jeffrey Wright, Sandra Bullock, John Goodman, Viola Davis and the great Max von Sydow. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Featurettes. Widescreen. Dolby and DTS-hd 5.1 surround.

Battle Royale: The Complete Collection (Anchor Bay) Adapted from Koushun Takami’s polarizing novel (compared by champions and detractors alike as a 21st century version of A Clockwork Orange) and set in a futuristic Japan,

Exclusive: There’s more movement on the Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate film front now that the two companies have become one.

What I Watched, What You Watched: Installment #6

Outside of seeing three films in theaters this week I also took in nine titles at home including films from Akira Kurosawa, Roman Polanski, Claude Lelouch and two from Chan-wook Park. It's a mixed bag going from a movie about a girl with a machine gun arm to a film from the French New Wave. As always, remember you can keep tabs on my personal Netflix queue right here. Now, here's the recap of my week in movies... The Machine Girl (2008) Quick Thoughts: I can't remember which one of the Netflix friends I have had this in their queue, but I saw it and noticed it was on Instant Play and just had to give it a watch. I mean, at 96 minutes who wouldn't want to give a movie about a girl with a machine gun on her arm a chance? Well, I gave it a chance and must say,

James King's Hilarious Sex Scenes
Stunning Pearl Harbor star James King had to hold back the giggles while romping with co-stars in her recent box office bomb Slackers. The model-turned-actress, 22, finds it hilarious to act out sex scenes in the movie, which co-stars Devon Sawa and Jason Schwartzman. The blonde beauty says, "There are about a hundred people sitting there watching you and you're having sex with this guy and he's wearing a thong. You're trying not to laugh your ass off. You're licking his face and he's licking yours, and it's so gross and so nasty, but it's funny too. It's so outrageous, especially when you think 'This is my life; I'm getting paid to have sex with a guy in a thong!'"
