The National Federation of the Blind is angry about Blindness. Not the condition. Well, actually they're angry about that. Like in general But in this case its a movie with Mark Ruffallo and Jullianne Moore that is pissing them off.
Looks like we were able to get our hands on an early promotional poster for the upcoming Yogi Bear live action movie. And I gotta say, just reading the synopsis has got me VERY interested.
It's freezing out today and I'm in a bad mood because tonight's debate is bumping The Office (I know, that's pathetic), but the news that Martic Scorsese and Robert De Niro are doing another mafia project has made my morning just a little brighter.
A prison beating is a great start to a TV show. Recap: Season 1, episode 5. We're introduced to a few new characters who happen to be in jail. The member, Otto, arranges for his buddy Chuck to get some protection from the club when he gets out.
There's something calming about sitting down with one of the God of War games and mashing buttons until your thumb is bleeding and everything on-screen is dead. There is, however, a sparkley little bit of doubt in my heart that Hollywood's favorite—and certainly its shiniest—bad boy director, Brett Ratner, can make that translate to the big screen.
Well folks, it looks like our brethren to the South East have run out of time on contract negotiations between allied Bollywood Unions and the Association of Motion Picture & TV Program Producers. Cameramen all across the subcontinent have put down their VHS camcorders and refused to return until demands are met.
As of right now, Top Secret is pretty much the height of spy comedy, but Jack Black is hoping to change with what is essentially a wacky version of the Bourne movies. Black will play a chubby guy who washes up on a Cuban beach with no memory and automatically assumes that he's some kind of super spy.
Recap: Season 1, episode 4. We start out in a diner where a creepy-looking guy orders the spiciest sandwich he can think of and watches construction workers through the window. Suddenly, there's a huge explosion, and as the workers are running, our bad breath-having friend walks into the epicenter, calls someone on the phone and says, "It has arrived."
If I had to pick a character from the DC universe to get his or her own TV show, Robin would probably have been somehwere near the bottom of the list near Hawkman, but The Graysons, which tells the story of the Boy Wonder before he falls in with Batman has apparently gotten the green light by the CW. Here's hoping it's not another Birds of Prey. Yikes.
As weird and conservative as politics get in the US of A, we usually don’t have the Pat Robertsons and Jerry Falwells (R.I.P.) calling for the death of TV executives and show presenters over ‘immoral’ content. Saudi Arabia is a tad different.
There is so much good TV kicking around at the moment that it's hard to find time to watch it and the new DVDs without becoming a total hermit, but that shouldn't stop us from trying to figure it out. This week, Marvel's surprise hit of the summer is in the lead by a longshot. Iron Man: Two Disc Special Collector's Edition
I never saw The Dark Knight in IMAX®. I haven’t walked into an IMAX® theatre in about three years. The last thing I saw was about fighter pilots and I almost hurled. I have nothing against it, I just don’t really see the point. Call me a Luddite, but seems like the nice big screens that you find at most movie theatres these days are enough. Dreamworks and Michael Bay would disagree.
Marvel's colorful characters are the hottest commodity in Hollywood right now, and according to a deal extension between Paramount and the comic book giant, we're going to have plenty of superhero movies to keep us busy for the next couple of summers. Here's a quick breakdown:
Recap: Season 3, episode 3. With last week's premiere extravaganza in the bag, there are lots of new mysteries to unravel and lots of new super powers to be jealous of.
Sequels that are done 26 years after the fact are not a good idea. If it’s been that long, just go for the remake. Blade Runner is one of the best Sci-Fi movies of all time, and it would take an amazing feat of moviemaking to even get close to the splendor of the original. But that doesn’t seem to be stopping the two ambitious co-writers of Eagle Eye from aiming to ruin your precious cinematic memories.
Recap: Season 1, episode 4. Last week's episode was all that eventful, but this week's piece of the story is a little more exciting. We get to see our first vampire bar and Jason gets a boner that he can't get rid of. We've all been there, brother.
The Wrestler is Darren Aronofsky’s latest film. It’s been getting incredible reviews at film fests. Mickey Rourke is said to do an amazing job at playing the part of an aging, emotionally wounded WWF-type, a role that has some similarities to his life. Here’s a little info.
Love him or hate him, Shia is going to be around for a while. While I'm not one of the haters, I'm still not entirely convinced he can carry a movie totally on his non-hunky shoulders. Plot:
Episode 2.9 opens on Don in a hotel room. He’s not looking so hot. Marilyn Monroe, however, is way worse. She’s dead and the ladies of Sterling Cooper are taking it to heart. Betty Draper listens to the news of Monroe’s OD over a standing breakfast of red wine and broken nuptial sadness.
Recap: Season 5, Episode 4 "Fire Sale." Vince still can't really get any work, but finally the entire story they have been setting up for E is starting to pay off. It's going to be a lot of fun watching him fall apart under the pressure. Vince and Ari:
To be completely honest, I thought Paul Newman was already dead, but apparently I was wrong since he died of cancer on Friday at his home in Connecticut. He was 83. I'm not going to make any lame salad dressing jokes, because I'm sure you want to save those for the guy in your office who thinks he's really funny but everyone else just thinks he's mentally challenged.
It’s not easy doing what Sacha Baron Cohen does. The man has some massive cojones to pull off the pranks that he delicately engineers with his group of writers and producers. One of the biggest obstacles to continuing to perpetuate the Ali G character line is recognition. So it’s always satisfying to see him sneaking past security to make a mockery of things.
Recap: Season 4, Episode 3 "America s Next Top Paddy s Billboard Model Contest" Really, the only complaint I have about this show is how long the title is when I'm typing it. Plot:
It's Friday night, which means the only thing on TV is going to be the presidential debate. But, rather than watching the whole thing and getting depressed, why not use it as an excuse to get totally hammered? Follow these simple rules and by the end of the debate, you'll be totally convinced that these knuckleheads know what they're doing. Or you'll be passed out. Either way, you win.
Recap: Season 5, Episode 1 "Weight Loss." By now it should be pretty clear that I like The Office, which makes me worry a little before the start of each season. Maybe it won't be as funny or maybe they'll bring in some shitty character to ruin the whole thing. Luckily, it seems like the awkward train has stayed right on track.
Unless you were a big Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, this might not sound like big news. But, you should consider the fact that her new show, which is going to be called The Wonderful Maladys is going to be on HBO…a channel that shows boobs.
As we get closer to Christmas, crappier movies start hitting the theaters and the good stuff from the past summer starts hitting DVD. Today, we got the full info on two fo the season's biggest DVD releases. Hit the jump for what you can expect from Indy when it drops on October 14th and Hellboy II on November 11th.
Recap: Season 1, Episode 4. Things haven't been going so well for our favorite crew of leather-clad tough guys. This week, they're looking to turn things around by killing their rivals and hiding their illegal machine guns from the feds. Plot:
If you don’t like Bill Maher then you are not going to like this film. If you are sympathetic to the cause of religion then you are also not going to like this film. If you think that the comedic methods of Sasha Baran Cohen are unfair, then that’s just another reason you will think that this is a shitty movie. However, if you are like me— an comedy-loving atheist who thinks that Maher makes a good point, even though he’s using the camera as a weapon—then see this film.
Don't worry, economy. Once Johnny Depp and Jerry Bruckheimer get done making Pirates of the Caribbean 4 and The Lone Ranger for Disney, they should have more than enough money to bail us out of this pesky recession. Johnny's not even playing the Lone Ranger, he's only going to be Tonto, but something tells me Disney isn't going to be paying him in giant turkey legs.
