www.filmbull.com – Teen Wolf

Tyler Posey plays the character of Scott. Scott was just a typical, normal person. There was nothing unusual or extraordinary about him. But one Vampire bite (yes, you read it right; one Vampire bite) changed him forever. All of a sudden, he’s struggling with who he is. Is he a human or a wolf? Or is he both? This is the most bizarre thing he or anyone has ever known. Sometimes, Scott’s urges control him and he just become this animal, this wolf thing. Will being a wolf be a curse or a good thing? Does it change anything between Allison, his girlfriend (played by Crystal Reed) and him? Should he be someone people fear or can he control his powers? How does a human, one teenage boy, handle such a situation? How does he get out of it? You’ve gotta watch the movie to find out. #filmbull

A filmbull Review of: Teen Comedies You Most Likely Haven’t Seen

Gregory’s Girl

This teen comedy is about this boy who starts to fall for a new girl who joins his soccer team. Even though it’s funny, there are swear words throughout the movie. This movie is an old one but still funny. The accents in the movie aren’t as many expect and there’s lots of dubbing so Americans can understand it but it still is a hilarious movie that brings back the old time movies.

Flirting
To this day there is fighting in Uganda. Many are over there trying to help but in the end it all depends on the people over there. This movie shows you the hilarious side of things but the reality of things over in Uganda. This movie explains itself in the title. It’s about a girl and a guy who starts to fall head over heels for each other. Though this is a movie about love it also shows how it was overseas and the struggles that many faced.

Election
The Election is about a school’s election for president. The school could care less about it, but there is one girl who is dying to win. A teacher running the election wants the girl, played by Reese Witherspoon, to lose. The movie is a fun and cute about how low everyone will go to get their way.
Saved
In the movie Saved it takes you through a Christian high school where everyone has drama some get pregnant, and others smoke. This movie teaches us that sometimes you have to just take things step by step. That no matter what, people make bad choices. It also shows the teens that don’ believe that even teenagers that are religious make mistakes to. Everyone is alike more then they think. This movie also shows you can get through anything with faith and God and making good choices.

Teen movies can be silly and plain old fun yet sometimes they are full of lessons and can help you make better choices. It’s up to you what kind of entertainment you choose to watch but no matter what, good choices in real life should be made.

We provide lots of movies at Filmbull and we encourage you to watch the movies you want as many times as you want while saving money too. We also encourage you as teens and the parents and family of teens to make good life choices. Enjoy our movies and enjoy your life. Wisely.

@filmbull – T Bone Burnett

Midwest born and raised recording artist T Bone Burnett is one of the most prominent players behind the classic and current movies you know and love. He was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1948 and moved to Ft. Worth, Texas where he was raised and attended high school. By the time he was twenty years old, he was recording and producing music for his friends, a few of which went on to become professional musicians that Burnett occasionally still works with today.

After spending time playing as a touring guitarist in Bob Dylan’s band, Rolling Thunder Revue, in the mid to late 1970’s, Burnett released his first solo album in 1980. After his initial solo release he went on to put out a collection on albums and Eps, ending with a 40-year career retrospective album of some the more successful of his solo works in 2006. A few of his songs saw some radio air play but for the most part Burnett’s remained only to be available on the albums, occasional movies, and covers done by his friends or other people he had worked with previously.

He remains to be a stronger producer than he is a solo performer and not because of ability but rather, his preference to producing is greater than performing. This may be due to the complications of record labels and marketing when you are not only writing and recording the songs but also putting only your name on it as opposed to the backing support given by actors and movies and all the publicity a major motion picture entails. Writing a part for a scene in a movie is a lot different than writing and arranging for an album that is strictly audio with no visual aid.

Burnett’s repertoire includes production for big names like Elton John, Los Lobos, Counting Crows, Allison Krauss, and Robert Plant to name a few of his bigger accomplishments. While in film, he won Grammy awards for his work in O, Brother Where art Thou? and he was responsible for the soundtracks of The Big Lebowski and the movie of Johnny Cash’s life, Walk the Line. Burnett founded the record label, DMZ, which is a branch of Columbia records as well as other short lived record company ventures.

In the music world, Burnnett is recognized as a powerhouse who seems to always have his name on every good piece of work in music and movies that was made in the past forty years. Anything that sounds good, a little old timey, and maybe a little bluesy, that comes in the form of a movie or a well-known recording artist, then chances are Burnett had a part in either producing, writing, or playing it.

Filmbull – Movie Star Diet Secrets

Most of us want to know how the stars lose weight and look so good when the camera seems to add at least ten pounds. Well @filmbull.com we wanted to find out what some top celebrities’ diet secrets are:

Jessica Simpson
Jessica, who is often watched and ridiculed for her yo-yo’ing now focuses on maintaining what is a healthy weight for her with her “BeSlim” concept:

B = Breakfast. Start your day with breakfast to keep the metabolism up and give you energy all day.
E = Exercise. Get moving to burn calories. This is a necessity for losing weight & gaining health
S = Support. Make sure you have at least one person to support and encourage you.
L = Low fat. Stick with meals that are small in size but eat more frequently to prevent fat storage.
I = Individual plan. Make sure your meals, exercise and lifestyle plan is individualized for you.
M = Monitoring. Monitor your weight and waist size once a week.

Renee Zellweger
Known for her yo yo-ing to gain and lose weight for movie roles, Renee is now aware that each time she does this, she loses muscle tone. So her secret is to find a healthy weight that is best for her and to stay in that zone. No more starving on crash diets as this only puts the body in starvation mode and leads to the use of muscles for energy. This doesn’t look very good and even worse, it damages the heart and immune system. So Renee stays in the zone – her zone.

Tyra Banks
Tyra Banks dropped her weight by getting rid of her bad food habits such as adding bacon to her healthy salads, which makes them no longer healthy. She is eating more lean protein and staying away from animal fat, which is the bad saturated fat and is found in fried foods. She also takes it lightly as far as her sugar consumption which includes avoiding pasta and white breads (simple sugars).

Kelly Osbourne
Kelly Osbourne knows the balance of losing weight in a healthy manner and keeping it off. She says that you should incorporate healthy eating, physical activity and plenty of rest/sleep. Kelly also says that this is not just a one-time, every now and then thing. This is a lifestyle thing. You work on this your entire life and will have a healthy way to keep the weight off, a method that you can stick to for a lifetime.

Jordin Sparks
This celebrity has dropped some serious weight but doesn’t show signs of having lost too much weight as her bones aren’t jutting out and she doesn’t have the sunken-in features of the face. It looks like she has found the secret to losing the right amount and she says it’s about calculating your Body Mass Index (BMI). It’s not about how much you weight but how much lean tissue and body fat you have.

#Filmvbull – Most Violent Cartoons

Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker
Sometimes people forget that if they make something a cartoon, it’s not always suitable for children. Yet parents and adults still put their kids in front of it if it’s a cartoon. With Batman: The Animated Series, beware before you do this. Lots of blood, lots of violence and very brutal with blowing someone up even, especially for a cartoon. And to add death after this explosion of a human being, that’s much too much. Then the show goes on to the point that the Joker is killed by a kid. This is really insane stuff. Sure, it’s just a cartoon but you know that where there’s animation, there will be children watching.

Ninja Scroll
It seems that cartoons about Ninjas are super violent and Ninja Scroll, a Japaneses animated film, is pretty gory with plenty of blood. Add beheading, extreme violence, rape and nudity and this leads not only to what most Japanese ninja animation is all about but something that shouldn’t be animated and if so, have serious warnings for those who think, “It’s just a cartoon.”.

Violent cartoons are usually controversial. Just be sure that children aren’t set in front of them just because they are cartoons. Here @filmbull we keep you updated on everything about tv, movies and films. Be sure to check out our hundreds of movies at www.filmbull.com

Worst Teen Movies – John Tucker Must Die

John Tucker Must Die is about a group of girls who try to get back at the school’s stud. It’s not only badly made, but the acting is also terrible.

Worst Teen Movies – Swimfan

This movie is exactly like Fatal Attraction. It’s supposed to be a thriller, but everything is predictable and lame.

Filmbull.com – Movie Reviews

1. DROP DEAD GORGEOUS

A dark American comedy, directed by Michael Patrick Jann, Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999) is a mockumentary, which follows the story of a young woman in the tiny, fictional town of Mount Rose, Minnesota. Amber Atkins (Kirsten Dunst) competes in the Sarah Rose Cosmetics Mount Rose American Teen Princess Pageant as a means of escaping the clutches of settling down in Mount Rose.

The film is set in 1995, in the small and conservative town of Mount Rose, Minnesota. As they prepare for one of the only “big-ticket” events around, Amber Atkins signs up for the pageant. She sees winning the pageant as a way to follow in the footsteps of her idols, her mother Annette Atkins (Ellen Barkin), and Diane Sawyer. While living in a trailer park near her mother’s best friend Loretta (Allison Janney), Amber works as a beautician in the local funeral home where she also practices her tap dancing talent. Amber’s humble life is quite the contrast to another contestant in the pageant, Rebecca Anne Leeman (Denise Richards), daughter of the richest man in town and Gladys Leeman (Kirstie Alley). Mrs. Leeman, both head of the pageant organizing committee and a former winner, is extremely critical and judgmental of anyone that is not in her immediate family. Rebecca’s winning the pageant is basically foreseen the moment the Leeman family is introduced in the film. As one of the pageant judges is an employee at the Leeman Furniture store, many speculate that the contest is fixed. Other contestants share small stories of their lives as they are introduced throughout the film. A few of the contestants seem like they only belong in a small town, while others show promise of a somewhat more ideal life.

As the pageant draws closer, many odd events begin to occur. Before things really get going, Tammy Curry (one of the contestants) is killed when her tractor explodes. As she is President of the Lutheran Sisterhood Gun Club, beating out Rebecca Leeman, it is speculated that Leeman might possibly have something to do with it. After Tammy’s funeral, Amber finds a picture of Tammy in her locker at school with the words “you’re next” on the back. A few days later, Rebecca’s love interest Brett Clemmens (who seems more interested in Amber), is found dead in a “hunting accident.” Amber fears for her life and decides to quit the pageant after her mother is injured during an explosion at their mobile home. Annette is found in a neighbor’s lawn after saving Amber’s tap shoes by shoving them into her underwear. When Amber finds her at the hospital, Annette’s hand suffers severe burns and her hand must be amputated upon which a can of beer melted. Amber does not want to see anyone else hurt for her sake and wants to quit the pageant, but Loretta talks her out of it. During the dress rehearsal, fellow contestant Jenelle Betz (Sarah Stewart) and Amber switch contestant numbers as Jenelle has a newborn baby to go visit. Although the accident was meant for Amber, a stage light falls and hits Jenelle on the head, knocking her unconscious, rendering her deaf.

Leading up to the pageant, many more events reveal to Amber that there is foul play going on around the town. Kirsten Dunst and Kirstie Alley do a phenomenal job of their portrayal of women in a small American town, right down to their accents. The film is also a debut of the Academy-Award-nominated actress Amy Adams, who received praise (along with Denise Richards) for her performance in the film. Drop Dead Gorgeous is a great concept and contains hilarious, quirky interactions between characters. The story is hysterically portrayed between Amber and the Leeman’s.

2. NICK & NORAH’S INFINITE PLAYLIST

A romantic comedy film based on a novel of the same name written by Rachel Cohn, Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist (2008) directed by Peter Sollett, tells the story of two teenagers Nick (Michael Cera) and Norah (Kat Dennings). The two meet while out in New York City with a separate group of friends. Over the course of the night, their adventure gets a little out of hand as they search for Norah’s drunken friend and their favorite band’s secret show.

Nick O’Leary is a regular, straight electric bass player in an all-gay band called the “Jerk-Offs” from Hoboken, New Jersey and is heartbroken after his girlfriend, Tris (Alexis Dziena), breaks up with him. He is so heartbroken that he constantly talks about her and makes her “breakup” mix CD’s. Nick’s gay band mates, Thorn (Aaron Yoo) and Dev (Rafi Gavron), convince him to perform at a club the same night as their favorite band, Where’s Fluffy? Despite his hesitance, Nick agrees to play. Norah Silverberg (Kat Dennings) is the teenage daughter of a very wealthy and successful record producer who shares a very similar musical taste to Nick’s. Although she is a curvy, unique looking girl, she shares the same type of socially quirk as Nick, which is why their characters seem to click so well. Norah and Tris attend the same high school and dislike each other, but have a mutual friend named Caroline (Ari Graynor). The same night that Nick goes out, Caroline and Norah find themselves at the same club, Arlene’s Grocery, where Nick and his friends are playing. As Norah wants to show up Tris, she asks Nick to pretend that they are dating. Nick’s friends see this as an opportunity to set Nick and Norah up and offer to take a very drunk Caroline home in order to give the two a chance to spend time together.

While at a quick stop, a very bewildered Caroline wakes up in Thom’s van and quickly escapes. In an effort to find Caroline, Thom and Dev visit a club where Where’s Fluffy? Are supposed to be playing but find out it was merely a rumor. After finding out that he and Norah have sparked an interest in each other, Tris is eager to win Nick back. She decides to follow them. Nick and Norah find Caroline at a gay cabaret, celebrating Christmas as a Christmas tree. After rescuing Caroline, Norah decides to let Nick talk to Tris (who is waiting on the hood of his car) as she and Caroline leave. Tris attempts to seduce Nick by dancing for him seductively outside of his car, but is surprised when he leaves her near the river to find Norah.

Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist is a film of adventure and spontaneity. The character development between Nick and Norah is nothing short of adorable as their characters immediately have a strong chemistry. The film received generally favorable reviews and critics described it as a “shy sweet romance that surveys the varieties of teenage experience with tolerant sympathy.” It is a fun watch, nothing too special, but definitely gives an audience feelings of nostalgia and brings one back to teenage, carefree years when staying awake all night long was merely another adventure.

3. THE CORE

An American disaster/science fiction film, The Core (2003) directed by Jon Amiel, tells the story of a team that must drill to the core of the Earth in order to restart its rotation, fortifying the Ozone layer, and saving the Earth. The Earth’s electromagnetic field has become instable and is quickly falling apart piece by piece. Dr. Josh Keyes (Aaron Eckhart), a leading geologist surveying the spectacle, discovers that the Earth’s molten core has stopped rotating, which will cause the Earth’s electromagnetic field to collapse. A team put together by Dr. Keyes and fellow scientists Serge Leveque (Tchéky Karyo) and Conrad Zimsky (Stanley Tucci) develop a plan with the United States government to save the Earth.

The film opens with what seems like a regular day for planet Earth. All of a sudden, things begin happening and a multitude of people fall dead on the ground for no reason. Dr. Josh Keyes and his comrades look into the matter, discovering that the Earth’s electromagnetic field is on the verge of collapse, putting the entire planet in jeopardy. In order to change the fate of their world, the three scientists develop a confidential plan with the United States government in which a team of specialized, very capable men and women will bore into the Earth’s core and plant an arrangement of nuclear charges in an attempt to restart the core and restore the field. The three design a giant, multi-compartment vessel named Virgil with the help of Ed “Braz” Brazzelton (Delroy Lindo). Braz has developed a laser capable of boring through some of the planet’s most indestructible materials as well as a material known as “unobtainium,” used to build the vessel’s hull. Keyes also recruits one of the best computer hackers in the business, Theodore Donald “Rat” Finch (DJ Qualls), in order to keep the potential disaster off the Internet and off the grid.

The vessel is ready and piloted by the space shuttle Endeavor’s Commander Robert Iverson (Bruce Greenwood) and Major Rebecca “Beck” Childs (Hilary Swank). After accidentally drilling into the wrong structure, the vessel drops closer to the bottom but gets stuck. Molten lava begins pouring in from the hole they made after dropping and they must drill through a giant stone-like structure in order to free and restart the ship. While drilling, a piece of crystal shard hits the top of Iverson’s helmet, piercing his helmet and killing him. With no time to mourn the death of a teammate, the ship must press on. The vessel clips the edge of a huge diamond, which opens the hull of the rear compartment. Leveque gives up his life in order to save the launch codes before the compartment is released and crushed under a massive amount of pressure.

The Core is a compelling movie with a great concept very much relatable to the 21st century life as the planet’s resources have seemed to deplete and there is less sustainability for human life. The film received critical reviews of the most negative degree, however it is a decent watch for any science fiction fanatic.

4. GET HIM TO THE GREEK

An American comedy film written, directed, and produced by Nicholas Stoller, Get Him To the Greek (2010), is a spin-off sequel of Stoller’s film Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008). Two actors from Stoller’s 2008 film, Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) and Jonah Hill make another appearance in Stoller’s 2010 film and their performance leaves the audience falling out of their seats laughing.

Aldous Snow, a British rock star, releases an album with a single called “African Child,” which completely flops and becomes a critical failure. After being sober for seven years, Aldous relapses after an interview with his pop-star girlfriend Jackie Q (Rose Byrne) reveals that they have a “boring life.” Aldous impulsively breaks up with Jackie, loses custody of his son Naples and sabotages his career.

Simultaneously, in Los Angeles, Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) works as a talent scout for Pinnacle Records. While living with his girlfriend, Daphne (Elisabeth Moss), Aaron struggles to find middle ground between trying to keep his job and spending time with his girlfriend who is a doctor and works mostly nights. As a result of poor record sales, Sergio Roma (Diddy) demands new ideas. Aaron suggests that Aldous Snow play at the Greek Theatre in L.A. on the anniversary of his legendary performance at the same venue. Sergio likes the idea and sends Aaron to London in order to escort Aldous to the theatre. Little does Aaron know, fetching Aldous will be anything but simple.

Upon arriving at Aldous’ apartment, Aaron discovers that the concert had been pre-determined two months ahead of time. He learns that the concert was not really his idea and feels discouraged and out of place, as Aldous did not expect an escort. After a while of convincing, Aldous and Aaron make their way to the airport, where Aldous makes many detours and misses many flights. They end up barhopping all around the town, which does not stress Aaron out any less, as he must keep rescheduling their flights.

Before stopping in Los Angeles, they arrive in New York City for Aldous’ appearance on Today, Aaron imbibes all of Aldous’ marijuana and alcohol in order to keep him sober for the performance. After realizing that he does not remember to his recent hit “African Child,” Aldous replaces it with his hit, “The Clap” and receives a large amount of praise from the audience. After the performance, Aaron and Aldous hit the sky for Los Angeles. While on the flight, Aaron learns that Aldous is miserable, lonely, and misses his son and has grown apart from his father Jonathan (Colm Meanery) for years. Aaron, feeling sympathetic for Aldous, suggests that they visit Jonathan after Aldous’ performance at the Greek. Jonathan lives in Las Vegas and after the show, the two go to visit him. All types of chaos and havoc is wreaked upon Aaron’s life as he shortly lives the fast-paced nightlife of a rock star alongside Aldous and his father.

Get Him To the Greek received extremely positive reviews, as some critics described is a film with a “suitably raunchy script [with a ] pair of winning performances from Jonah Hill and Russell Brand…it is one of the year’s funniest comedies.” In its opening weekend, the film debuted at number two, behind Shrek Forever After, grossing over $17 million. The film is raunchy, silly and hilarious as Jonah Hill and Russell Brand work quite well together to rip a roar from the audience.

5. RENT

An adaptation of the Broadway musical of the same name based upon Giacomo Puccini’s opera La Boheme, Rent (2005), is an American musical drama film. The film tells the story of several people living in New York City and their struggles with sexuality, cross-dressing, paying their bills, and drugs. Taking place specifically in the East Village of the city from 1989 to 1990, the film features six of the original Broadway cast members in their roles.

The film opens on Christmas Eve, 1989, where aspiring filmmaker Mark Cohen (Anthony Rapp) and his roommate, Roger Davis (Adam Pascal) learn that their rent is due. Their landlord, Benjamin “Benny” Coffin III (Taye Diggs), reveals that although their rent was previously waived, they must pay up. Tom Collins (Jesse L. Martin), their former roommate arrives at the same time and has just been mugged in an alleyway. Mark and Benny are told that they can have free rent if they convince Maureen Johnson (Idina Mensel), Mark’s ex-girlfriend, to stop her protest against Collins’ plans to tear down a homeless shelter and built a cyber studio.
Angel Dumott Schunard (Wilson Jermaine Heredia), a street drummer/drag queen, finds Collins in the alleyway and helps him. After finding out that they are both victims of AIDS.

Collins and Angel arrive with gifts to give to Mark and Roger. They explain that a local AIDS support group is meeting and invite them to join in. Roger does not wish to go and Mark goes to find Maureen and discourage her from going through with the protest. During his search, Mark runs into Maureen’s new girlfriend, Joanne Jefferson (Tracie Thoms), and surprisingly forms a strange bond with her over Maureen’s promiscuity.

Mimi Marquez, Roger’s neighbor and also an HIV-positive heroin addict, finishes her dancing job and returns home to flirt with Roger. Roger is not at all interested and throws her out of his apartment. The next day, Roger comes to the Life Support meeting in honor of his friends.

The film (and play) consist of a group of young adults who are all each other has and are brought even closer after they lose the life of one of the main characters. The story is a soap opera, sometimes playful and uses music as a tool used to move the story. During the time of the musical’s conception, AIDS was a newly discovered major horror in the nation, which caused many deaths without knowledge of what it was. The film was created in order to gain a slightly larger, more mainstream audience. Although it is a nice adaptation, nothing quite compares to the musical itself, which is better to watch in person.
