Bonus Features: What To Watch This Weekend
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
Like Mad Max, but in a jail. And people compete for their lives. And no Jew-hating Mel Gibson. Read our review, where we say it’s worth it.
An aged Rain Wilson revives his rock days with the help of a bunch of youngsters. Word on the street is that this one is falling flat. It’s your call.
The House Bunny
A Playboy bunny is tossed out of the mansion and into a sorority. I have no idea why. I don’t care why. I'm going to see it either way. But honestly, people are saying good things, so head on in and top-off your spank bank.
A failed actor directs a controversial play, complete with Rocking Sexy Jesus. Steve Coogan is a funny Brit Bastard. I’ll be seeing this one on the name alone.
ON THE TV
The Last Night of the Olympics
Sunday. 7pm, NBC. Watch Michael Phelps win his 17th medal in the 4000 meter ‘your girlfriend would rather be fucking me than you’ freestyle. I hate that event.
Generation Kill- Episode 7.
Sunday. 9pm, HBO. Watch America’s best and definitely not brightest pummel their way through a war of incompetent commanders and moral relativity. But seriously, this show is the shit and makes me want to shoot big guns. Hoo-Rahh.
Mad Men- Episode 2.05
Sunday. 10pm, AMC. Don Draper is a complex man in a world of black and white, living out my office fantasy. How many broads will he nail before the show's over? Sir, we salute you.
Enjoy the weekend!
