Junky Love with Jordana Brewster
Monday, August 25 by

Man, she’s so pretty it kind of hurts. And not only that, she went to Yale. And she’s in the new Fast and Furious movie, which I have to wait until 2009 to see. Did I mention how pretty she is? Man.

6 Reasons We Should All Be Glad the Olympics Are Over
Monday, August 25 by

With last night's closing ceremonies, the 2008 Beijing Olympics closed out one of the highest rated TV events in the history of the idiot box. We're all guilty of watching at least some of it, but now it's time to get back to business as usual. That business, of course, is not giving a crap about anything even remotely Olympics related.

Review: Hamlet 2
Monday, August 25 by

You can lament the time wasted in your youth, your shitty attention span in elementary school, the rattail that you had when you were in middle school, the girls that you could have screwed in high school but you didn’t, the girls that you could have screwed in college but you still didn’t.

Video of RockNRolla’s Opening Credits Doesn’t Suck
Monday, August 25 by

Reviews of Guy Ritchie's upcoming Brit crime flick are already sneaking out, but I'm refusing to read them. I'm convinced this movie is going to be his return to form and that it is possible to go back to being awesome, even after Madonna has been sucking the life out of you for the past few years. And I don't mean suck in the totally awesome way.

Sex, Drugs, and Guns: The Best Docs About The Black Market
Monday, August 25 by

Weed, porn and illegal labor alone account for more than 10% of the American economy. Add weapons manufacturing, prostitution, and other assorted drugs into the mix and you’re looking at a significant portion of every dollar spent. The “shadow economy” is very well hidden. Luckily we have films to give us an insider’s view.

Mad Men: Ep 2.05
Monday, August 25 by

Episode 5, “The New Girl” starts off with Pete Campbell and his wife at the doctor. The doc is smoking a cigarette and discussing fertility issues with the couple, who are having some trouble with making a baby.

Review: The Rocker
Monday, August 25 by

Here we are at the warm, gross dregs of the summer movie season where somewhat decent movies come to mingle with the crap, begging audiences for their money like cinematic homeless people. The Rocker is every bit as funny as Step Brothers.

Recap: Generation Kill: Episode 1.07
Monday, August 25 by

Episode: "A Bomb in the Garden." I'm a little sad that our time with recon is over, even if the last episode didn't exactly hit me with a mortar shell of awesomeness. What happened?

Bonus Features: What To Watch This Weekend
Friday, August 22 by

Last weekend was sort of lame for new releases. This weekend has a shot at redemption with four possibilities. The tee-vee also holds a little magic in the world of shows we are currently enjoying. But do yourself a favor—if you have not seen the first few episodes, make a friend with On Demand.   IN THE THEATRE

Nicolas Cage and His Hair Sign On for Kick-Ass
Friday, August 22 by

Nicolas Cage's last venture into the land of comic movies was the epicly sucky Ghost Rider, so excuse me if I'm not super excited about the upcoming, Kick-Ass. It's the story of a high school kid who turns himself into some kind of super hero. His power seems to be the ability to pick the worst super hero name of all time.

Seth Rogan Definitely Not Starring in Superman Re-Remake
Friday, August 22 by

This one is HOT off the wires people. We found out this morning that Seth Rogan is defiantly not in talks with Warner Brothers to write and star in forthcoming remake of Superman.

Quantum of Solace Delayed a Week Thanks to Harry Potter
Friday, August 22 by

As if Harry Potter hadn't pissed me off enough already with his crappy movies and chubby, cape-wearing fans, now he's making us all wait an extra week for the new James Bond flick.

Review: Death Race
Friday, August 22 by

Rather than reviewing Jason Statham's latest explosion fest in my own voice, I'm going to use the voice of the frat dude that was sitting behind me at the midnight showing I attended last night. Please note that caps lock is used to emphasize both the frat guy's excitement and the movie's resemblance to a fun, 89-minute Mountain Dew commercial.

The Simpsons
Thursday, August 21 by

The Simpsons has been churning out funny episodes since before some of you were born. Sure, it has had its ups and downs, but, ultimately, no show has turned out more laughs. Some of us have spent more time with this four-fingered, yellow family than we have with our own families and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Best. Simpsons. Toys. Ever. From Kidrobot
Thursday, August 21 by

Don't worry, this isn't going to turn into some nerdy blog where we pine over plastic X-men or anything, but these limited edition Simpsons figures from hipster savior, Kidrobot would definitely look good all over my desk. Of course, $8 seems a little steep for a 3-inch vinyl figure, when it comes to art, I would definitely rather spend my dough on these than some painting.

Review: Vicky Christina Barcelona
Thursday, August 21 by

Last night I saw Vicky Christina Barcelona with my girlfriend. It is a movie about how confused women go to Europe and are lured into unhygienic relationships with sensitive artist-types, and then end up either 1) cheating on their fiance, or 2) having a three-way.

Ben Affleck to Star in Mike Judge’s New Movie; Sadly Not as Butthead
Thursday, August 21 by

I feel bad for Mike Judge after what happened to Idiocracy. The studios screwed the movie up and then didn't bother releasing in theaters to anyone who wanted to see it. Maybe he'll get some better treatment for Extract, which starts shooting next Monday.

More News On The Road and Blood Meridian
Thursday, August 21 by

The last time I checked, Ridley Scott was going to direct the big screen adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian. But when I looked at the IMDB page this morning, it had Todd Field’s name in the director spot.  This is good, because he’s probably way more capable of retaining the gritty feel that the movie needs to be true to the book. 

Kristen Bell Might Star in Veronica Mars Movie
Thursday, August 21 by

I'm not a devoted Veronica Mars fan like a lot of people gushing over this news seem to be. But it wasn't a bad show, and if the rumors are true that the series is going to get a full-length movie then I'll certainly see it.

10 of Fall TV’s Hottest New Chicks
Thursday, August 21 by

Fall TV is an exciting time. There are lots of new shows to be watched and complain about. But, one of the best things about the fall premieres is getting to see the new crop of beautiful ladies being paraded across our TV screens. Here's a cheat sheet of girls you might not be familiar with….yet.

Heidi Montag Makes Baby Jesus Cry

The star of The Hills recently told a reporter for E! that she believes her success is due to God liking her:

Fred Durst Directs Family Movie Starring Ice Cube
Wednesday, August 20 by

Holy pre teen acne.  I had no idea that Fred Durst was directing a family movie. It’s rated PG and has ICE CUBE IN IT.  It’s rated PG. It’s called The Longshots.  It’s rated PG. Fred Durst was in Limp Bizkit. I hated Limp Bizkit.

Vin Diesel to Direct Fast and Furious Prequel
Wednesday, August 20 by

In the interest of full disclosure, I should tell tell you that I think The Fast and the Furious is an extremely fun and easy to watch movie. No, it's not Bullitt, but it's not Biker Boyz, either. That said, I'm still not sure how to feel about Vin Diesel's plan to direct a 20-minute sequel connecting the first and the fourth installments of the franchise.

Harry Potter Delay Earns Fans an Apology From Warner…Sort of
Wednesday, August 20 by

How many distraught, letter-writing Harry Potter fans does it take to change a light-bulb? None, because letters from pathetic fanboys (and girls) don't change anything.

Buzzin: Ep. 1.05
Wednesday, August 20 by

Episode 5, “Working on Wango” stats off with the boys back on the radio. Dave immediately loses a bet and has to jump in a pond in front of a hotel.  They tour a bunch, and eventually accidently run the car off a small ledge at a gas station.

W.
Wednesday, August 20 by

Oliver Stone is the Hollywood equivalent to the messageboard troll. All he ever wants to talk about is the super-controversial stuff that will either make people really interested or incredibly mad. So, how does one follow up Wold Trade Center? With a movie about the president people love to hate.

Del Toro and Jackson to “Collaborate” on Hobbit
Wednesday, August 20 by

I always get Guillermo Del Toro and Peter Jackson mixed up when I see pictures of them. I’m sorry, all portly effects driven fantasy directors with beards look exactly the same to me. I think maybe the producers at New Line did the exact same thing when they signed Guillermo up to direct the forthcoming Hobbit movie.

The Hobbit

Coming Soon.

Other Stuff to Look At
Tuesday, August 19 by

It's just so great when you have such an amazing career like Ian Ziering that you have the opportunity to just pick and choose the roles that interest you. Such as the role of "Testiclees" in the Legend of Awesomest Maximus. Filmdrunk tells us more.
