'Guardians Of The Galaxy's' Michael Rooker On Yondu Past, Present And Future

November 25th, 2014 12:30pm EST
Interview: 'Guardians Of The Galaxy's' Michael Rooker On Yondu P
Anyone who witnessed Marvel’s latest big blockbuster spectacle that was James Gunn’s "Guardians of the Galaxy" knows the great Michael Rooker all too well. As the scene stealing space pirate Yondu Udonta, surrogate father to Star-Lord Peter Quill and overall bawdy blue bad guy, Rooker created one of the coolest, quirkiest and funniest Marvel characters to date.

31 Days Of Horror: 'Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer' (1986)

October 21st, 2010 4:51pm EDT
Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer
If there’s one thing that horror movies do well, it’s their uncanny ability to make murder and mayhem appealing. We fear for the characters as they get stalked by some unnamed killer, but as soon as the hammer (or the axe, or the machete, or the chainsaw) falls that fear manifests into wild cheers. It’s pretty rare when you come across a character in a horror movie who you actually feel bad for when they’re offed. Nine times out of ten the characters deserve it anyway, be it out of their own cosmic douchery or out of their own stupidity (DON’T. GO. OUTSIDE. WHAT ARE YOU DOING.). Consequentl...
