I produced a new movie called THE GUEST. It comes out this week in theaters in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, Dallas, Miami, Seattle, Phoenix, and San Antonio. The film is currently at 92% on Rotten Tomatoes and played at Sundance, SXSW, and the Toronto International Film Festival. It's by the same writing/directing/producing team as YOU'RE NEXT. You can see the trailer and theater listings on our official site. [more inside]
I produced a horror movie called YOU'RE NEXT. It comes out this weekend in the US, and in the rest of the world over the next few weeks. Critics even like it, which is pretty rare for a horror film these days. So if you like horror movies, go see it. If you don't like horror movies, go see it anyway and help support MeFi's own me.
Rotten Tomatoes scores can be very helpful when trying to figure out what movie to watch, but I find their website to be incredibly slow and frustrating to navigate. Since Rotten Tomatoes has an API, I decided to make Quick Rotten as a way to quickly look up Rotten Tomatoes scores and get a sense of what critics think of new releases. My friend John Holdun then chipped in to make it look pretty.
We use an extremely scientific process to determine what your name would be if you were a character in the Hunger Games. We also tell you how you died in the Hunger Games.
So I've come here a few times to promote films I've produced. I have Morgan Spurlock's POM WONDERFUL PRESENTS THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER SOLD coming out this weekend in theaters across the US. The film has been previously mentioned on MeFi after the premiere at Sundance. It's a documentary about product placement, marketing, and advertising that's funded entirely through product placement, marketing, and advertising. The film is currently sitting at 87% on Rotten Tomatoes, and it's played incredibly well at festivals over the last few months. In the spirit of the film, I'm trying to sell sell sell to get MeFites to see it in theaters this weekend or whenever it comes out in your town.
I have discussed THUNDER SOUL on MeFi Projects previously when we were premiering at SXSW. The documentary is about the Kashmere Stage Band, the greatest high-school funk band of all time. The film tells the band's amazing story in the 1970s, and follows the band members in the present day as they come back together again to play a reunion concert for their incredible band leader Conrad "Prof" Johnson. I just wanted to let MetaFilter know that we will be screening at the Edinburgh Film Festival, the Seattle Film Festival, and the Los Angeles Film Festival in the upcoming month in case any of you are able to come to the screenings.
