31 Days Of Horror: 'Saw' (2004)

October 20th, 2010 2:07pm EDT
Saw
Ever since Saw came out way back in 2004, I’ve heard nothing but belly aching from movie-goers and horror-goons alike over how the movie ushered in a new era of gore-porn. That because of Saw, as well as Hostel, its pseudo sister-movie, all horror movies started to forgo any attempt at story telling in favor of graphic depictions of peoples’ heads getting shoved into bear-traps or corn threshers. I also recall it being quite buzzed about before its release, only to be met with cold to tepid reviews upon its actual release. So, keeping its reputation in mind, I skipped past watching Saw, Saw...

Spain Drops X-Rating On 'Saw VI'

August 4th, 2010 12:12am EDT
Saw VI
Horror movie "Saw VI" will finally be released in Spain this October after producers cut several of the gory sequel's most violent scenes to secure a more universal rating in the country.

The sixth installment of the popular franchise was slapped with an X rating by Spanish film censors last year, meaning it could only be shown in theatres which allowed porn.

Its release in Spain was postponed and "Saw VI's" producers went back to the cutting room to re-edit the release.

They have now adhered to the rules set out by officials at the film institute, a unit of the culture ministry, who dem...

20 Years Later: New Kids On The Block

March 10th, 2008 2:30pm EDT
New Kids On The Block
It's hard to imagine that it's been 20 years since I wore my New Kids On The Block t-shirt holding a pink and black pocket rocker, which was playing "Hanging Tough" of course, in one hand and a sign saying "I hart you Jordan! Merry me!" in the other. Yes, I spelled it that way I was five years old. Even back then I was able to "get on the floor and do the new kids dance" at the outdoor venue in Tinley Park for my very first concert to see the best boyband EVER!

For those who don't remember or weren't born yet, New Kids on the Block was one of the most popular boybands to hit the music ...
