“Wetlands” Is Sure To Be The Grossest Movie Of The Year

"The Most Disgusting Coming Of Age Film Of All Time"

A few years ago, I was obsessed with reading Wetlands by Charlotte Roche, but only a few pages at a time, because the subject matter — one woman’s absolutely filthy hygiene habits and obsession with her bodily functions and fluids — was kind of stomach-turning. But as a bit of a gross girl myself — though not at all to the degree that Helen is — I was titillated by the book’s willingness to get completely and utterly vulgar, plus I got a kick out of the way she called her inner and outer labia “ladyfingers” and “dewlaps.” Anyway, a film version of “Wetlands” hits select theaters this Friday and critics who saw the German film at Sundance called it, amongst other things, “Eww is the warmest color” (a play on last year’s French hit, “Blue is the Warmest Color”) and “the most disgusting coming of age film of all time.” Prepare yourself for everything from masturbating with vegetables and oozing hemorrhoids, to guys jacking off on spinach pizza and very, very dangerous pubic hair grooming.

Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend! Keep reading »

A New "Kink" Trailer

“Kink,” a documentary about the porn web site Kink.com, debuted in January at the Sundance Film Festival. Yesterday, the film, which explores the largest BDSM online porn empire, released a new trailer in anticipation of a limited release. I’ve heard complaints about the film — it’s “boring” (which is unfortunately always something that some kinky folks say in order to be dismissive); it doesn’t address allegations of abuse at Kink.com — but I’ll see it regardless. Christina Voros directed “Kink” and James Franco executive produced, so you better believe I want to know how they handled the material. Also, this probably goes without saying, but the trailer is NSFW! [Queerty; First Showing]

5 Great Representatives Of The Best Worst Movies Ever

5 Great Representatives Of The Best Worst Movies Ever

I am a bad movie connoisseur. I’m not talking bad like “They paid too much for this to be that boring” bad, I’m talking bad bad, like really poor-quality filmmaking. I will watch any movie that either just totally fails or wanders into the “WTF?!” badlands. I will also watch almost any horror movie, which aids in this quest, because apparently everyone wants to make a horror movie and everyone thinks that when they do, it’s worth it to show everyone.

Plenty of people make lists of best-worst movies, but they include too many big-budget films that were just stupid. I’m glad “Thankskilling” is getting the credit it deserves for being terrible, so I won’t include it here. “Ishtar” is boring, not a flaming wreck of a failure. “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes” is intentionally bad, so it doesn’t count (because it’s a success). You’d have to be high to actually enjoy “Turkish Star Wars” even though it is truly, truly awful. And “Manos: The Hands of Fate” is better with the “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ commentary, plus everyone already knows about it, so whatever. Keep reading »
