Jack Black to Play Jason Bourne…Kind Of
Wednesday, October 1 by

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.

Fringe “The Arrival” Is a Little Slow
Wednesday, October 1 by

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."

Robin Getting His Own Pre-Batman TV Show
Wednesday, October 1 by

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.

Saudi Cleric Issues Fatwa On TV Execs
Tuesday, September 30 by

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.

This Week’s DVDs That Don’t Suck: 9/30/08
Tuesday, September 30 by

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

Transformers 2 Will Be Partially IMAX®SIZED
Tuesday, September 30 by

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 Upcoming Movies Dated
Tuesday, September 30 by

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:

Heroes “One of Us, One of Them”
Tuesday, September 30 by

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.

Blade Runner 2 Is A Horrible Idea
Monday, September 29 by

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.

True Blood “Escape from Dragon House”
Monday, September 29 by

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.

Mickey Rourke Is The Wrestler
Monday, September 29 by

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.

Review: “Eagle Eye” Will Make You Paranoid
Monday, September 29 by

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:

Mad Men’s “6th Month Leave” Is A Real Pisser
Monday, September 29 by

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. 

Entourage “Fire Sale” Swims With Sharks
Monday, September 29 by

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:

Paul Newman Is Dead
Sunday, September 28 by

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.

Bruno Brilliantly Disrupts Fashion Show
Friday, September 26 by

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.

It’s Always Sunny: “The Gang Gets a Billboard”
Friday, September 26 by

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:

The Presidential Debate Drinking Game
Friday, September 26 by

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.

The Office Season 5 Premiere
Friday, September 26 by

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.

Sarah Michelle Gellar Getting Her Own Non-Vampire HBO Show
Friday, September 26 by

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.

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.

Sons of Anarchy “Patch Over” Gets Tough
Thursday, September 25 by

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:

Review: Religulous Is Preachy But Good
Thursday, September 25 by

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.

Johnny Depp Signs On for Pirates 4, The Lone Ranger
Thursday, September 25 by

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.

Other “Make a Porno” Pairs
Wednesday, September 24 by

I'm excited about Zack and Miri Make A Porno. So exited that I made a series of posters that ask the question: what it other movie pairs (and Gandhi) got into the smut game? If I left any off, feel free to email me at feedback@screenjunkies.com.

Bonus Features: Hump Day Link Dump

It's usually a bad idea whenever anyone starts off as one thing and then later becoms an actor.

Write Jason a Pick-Up Line
Wednesday, September 24 by

Our pal Jason from Friday the 13th clearly needs some help with the ladies. All you have to do is comment on this post with a pick-up line appropriate for our lumpy-headed friend and you could get away with the complete first season of Chuck on DVD.

13 Craziest Moments Of Tyra Banks
Wednesday, September 24 by

Attractive women can get away with a lot. Supermodels can get away with more.  I call this the Tyra Banks Effect. She can be serious, or be a total goofball. Whatever the mood, she is always very, very hot. Enjoy.

American Psycho the Musical?
Wednesday, September 24 by

I pride myself in the fact that I have lived in New York for a long time and have never gone to see a musical of any kind. But, that might have to change when the musical adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis book hits the stage.
