Cinemassholes #8: The Mattress Man from Punch-Drunk Love
Cinemassholes? #8? What? Bear with me - I haven't updated this series since 2005, but I couldn't think of a more perfect place to share with you my love of The Mattress Man from Punch-Drunk Love. Previous cinemassholes included Brodie Bruce, Sean Bateman and The (Now Dead) Old Lady In Titanic. Bitch. You're up to speed. Let's go...

Cinemassholes #7: Lee Woo-Jin
In all the annals of cinema, I can think of no single character that so perfectly embodies the term 'asshole' as does Lee Woo-Jin (Yu Ji-Tae), the main antagonist of director Park Chan-Wook's simmering and wholly disturbing revenge thriller, Oldboy. Lee Woo-Jin takes being an asshole to heights previously undreamt of. If being...

Cinemassholes #6: Sean Bateman
Some families just ain't right. A week in the life of the Vorhees family would make for interesting reality TV, and you can guarantee the back yard of the Soprano's family home would certainly hold a few surprises. Add the Bateman family to that list. You have to feel for the parents in this case; not only must they turn a bl...

Cinemassholes #5: Ed Rooney
Whether you call it skiving, twagging, dodging or bunking, the art of skipping school was one fraught with danger and not easily mastered by the average teen. At least, it was until the baby-faced Ferris Bueller decided he couldn't face gym class any more and convinced his friends to have the best damn day of their lives, givin...

Cinemassholes #4: The Old Lady In Titanic
Like Edwin Starr said before he died: Old people, what are they good for? Absolutely nothing. I don't need to tell you that they all smell of stale biscuits and that they pretend to be deaf, at least until someone asks them to set the table. All they do is serve as a constant reminder that your hair is going to fall out, your...

Cinemassholes #3: Brodie Bruce
Ever since I was young, numerous people - be they parents, teachers or employers - have told me I need to get my priorities straight. Brodie Bruce is a man who has his life in order, although perhaps not the order you or I may consider to be the norm. What comes first for New Jersey's most unruly inhabitant? Money? Job secur...

Amongst all the hoary old cliches you'll hear about the opposite sex, the only one that rings true is unfortunately the most unfair - girls love bastards. Think about it. How many times have you seen a truly beautiful woman on the arm of a speccy nerd, say, or an ugly comedian? Sense of humour my ass. Nope, the one thing tha...

Vince Vaughn certainly has an eclectic bunch of misfits on his CV this far in his career, most notably the always money Trent (Swingers), the lounge-lizard villain Reese Feldman (Starsky & Hutch) and the sardonic but athletic Peter La Fleur (Dodgeball). What do all these characters have in common? Simple - they are the very es...
