Harmony Korine is the sort of man you’d want to avoid if you bumped into him in a dark alleyway, judging by the skewered imaginings he brings to life on the silver screen. From films about sex-crazed criminal teens, like Spring Breakers and Kids, to his unfinished documentary Fight Harm (yup, the one which features Harmony being brutally beaten over and over again), there’s definitely a lot worth knowing about this controversial writer-director. And we’re here to provide all of that knowing on a silver platter…
Disney angels turning seedy Hollywood. That’s been the primary hype surrounding Harmony Korine’s latest R-rated project. And it’s a shame really, because this is much more than just teen queens in bikinis behaving as you’ve never seen them before; this is a dissection of a generation and an expose on the psychedelic trip that is Spring Break.
Emma Watson won’t be going to the ball after all.
Gomez shows that young pipsqueak Biebs what he’s missing.
That sentiment will make sense shortly.
The Zefron is a bit of a dark horse these days; after seeming set for lifelong underage vaginal domination around 2006, when that guiltiest of guilty pleasures came out, High School Musical, he just didn’t take off from Disney quite as drastically as anyone expected. There was a time when he would have been anyone’s first bet for the male leads in things like Avatar – instead, he seems perpetually dissatisfied and cannot decide what he wants. We at BFF do like a mysterious one, so let’s have a wee look.
The word ‘formulaic’ is bandied about quite a lot by us cinema lovers, and we’ve noticed that if often occurs just after watching a Kevin James film. This week saw his latest offering, Zookeeper, besmirch screens across the country, so to celebrate / commiserate / royally take the mickey we take a gander at some of the parts which are undoubtedly going to be offered to him in the near future.
Because there’s nothing less attractive to a wet-lipped young maiden than a tattooed, pierced, bad-ass motorcycle demon with a past so tortured he like, can’t even talk about it (until he does). I always wondered what Beauty and the Beast would be like if, instead of good, it was like, really, really awful. Now I know.
