There are home theaters, and then there are HOME THEATERS. Which one of these do you want on your holiday gift list?
The force is strong with these baked goods…
Represent your favorite movies and TV shows by sportin' them when you strut, shuffle, or, if you're in a spritely mood, skip. Do you want these shoes? Do you have them? Can you send me the Marty McFly ones in a size 10?
Will Ferrell has a new partner, and his name sounds nothing like John C. Reilly. It sounds like Mark Wahlberg; Marky Mark if you're nasty. And we've got proof that these two are cleaning up city scum in the new Adam McKay directed comedy The Other Guys. Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne "No Longer Call Me The Rock" Johnson are also partnered up in it as the guys, because you can't have the "other" without having the "the." Set in New York City, The Other Guys follows Detective Allen Gamble (Ferrell), a forensic accountant who’s more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets, and Detective Terry Hoitz (Wahlberg), who has been stuck with Allen as his partner ever since an embarrassing public incident with his quick trigger finger. Allen and Terry idolize the city’s top cops, Danson and Manzetti (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson), but when an opportunity arises for the Other Guys to step up, things don’t quite go as planned. I don't know about you, but I'm quite liking these pairings and contrasts. McKay's last film Step Brothers left me wanting, and I'm hoping The Other Guys delivers on the laughs as well as the story. The Ferrell man-child is more worn out than the Farley man-child. [ScreenRant] Check out more pics of Jackson & Johnson (not the lotion company) after the jump!
Halloween is just around the corner, as if you didn't know and… Ah screw it. We don't need to justify this post. I mean, look at them! Gah! Adorable!
Our friends at Walyou.com and some people we don't know (but whose work we admire) at Pumpkin Gutter have assembled a rogue's gallery from the gourd family just in time for Halloween, and we've picked the best of the best. Every photo links back to the source page in case you want to keep exploring. Walyou alone has put together a mega gallery of 130 Pumpkin carvings that feature likenesses of video game characters, geek celebs, and more. So check em out when you're done cowering at the sight of these fruity monstrosities. (Yes, pumpkins are fruit.)
Not only is she easy on the eyes, but she’s got some acting chops as well.
Bored with your Labor Day already? Don't celebrate Labor Day? Like looking at some of the most gruesome decapitation images that Hollywood has to offer? Well, you are in luck, my friend. After the jump are stills from seventeen different films in which someone's head either explodes, shatters or is lopped off by a cannonball. Try and guess which movies they're from. Get all of them correct and you'll win the satisfaction of having blown our minds.
She loves to kill Nazis.
If you've opened your eyes or unplugged your ears over the last couple of weeks, you'll remember that I Love You, Man opens tomorrow. All the posters have been celebrating the "bromance" between Paul Rudd and Jason Segel, and have been shunning Rashida Jones, who plays Rudd's fiancée, Zooey, in the film. This is a travesty, but we are here to remind you of how great Rashida Jones is. You may remember her from The Office as Karen Filipelli, Jim's O.G. (that's original girlfriend, thank you.) She'll also be appearing in NBC's upcoming Amy Poehler, Aziz Ansari-starring Parks & Recreation. And she went to Harvard. So she can beat you at chess. Check out some photos of Rashida and a clip from her appearance on the brilliant online series, Wainy Days, after the jump.
This Friday, the remake of Last House on the Left hits theaters. If you haven't seen the trailer already, be sure to check it out here. The film looks like every protective parent's revenge fantasy come to gritty, visceral, head bludgeoning life, and Ms. Monica Potter gets to play Mommy Deadliest. We know Monica from TV's Trust Me and Boston Legal most recently. She's done several films in the past, probably most notably Patch Adams, Head Over Heels with Freddie Prinze Jr. and Saw. In all three films, she was horribly, brutally victimized. Check out some photos of Monica after the jump…
Who watches the Watchmen? I'm guessing about everybody, this weekend - Including homeless people. Admit it. If the city sends "interior decorators" to redo your bus shelter once a month with shiny new Watchmen "wallpaper," you'd panhandle just a little extra hard to see what all the buzz is about. And then there's the film's luscious leading lady – Malin Akerman, who'll be kicking ass and breaking hearts as Laurie Jupiter a.k.a. The Silk Spectre II. See more pics of Ms. Malin after the jump…
I'm getting really excited about Zack and Miri Make a Porno. These photos don't really reveal much new information, but all the smiling suggest that it's going to be one of the feel good Kevin Smith movies that we love him for. Maybe this movie will inspire him to go back and rework some of his crappier movies.
The only thing I know about the Dragonball franchise is that I've never liked it. Neither the video games nor the TV show have ever done anything but annoy me. That said, I was pretty sure I could completely ignore the live-action Dragonball movie that's coming out next year. These boring photos just about seal the deal for me.
The Saw series is a controversial one, but I personally think that it's a really fun series that helped bring mainstream America back into its love affair with horrific torture. This poster for the fifth installment should stir up conversation amongst horror fans and give Alice in Chains fans a total boner.
I haven't given a crap about a Jim Carrey movie in quite some time and, frankly, I'd like to punch him right in the face for what he did to The Grinch, but this picture of him getting ready to lay a wet one on Ewan McGregor have been stirring up some shit.
I know W. is going to be a big deal when it comes out, you know, because of all the terrible decision making and such, but if you're the kind of person that just really doesn't give a crap about politics like me, this movie might not be for you. That's not to say that it won't be really good, but I'd rather watch Michael Bay's W., than Oliver Stone's. Think about it.
I can already tell it's going to be kind of a slow news day because several people have sent me this obviously fan-made Batman poster. I understand that people are sad that the excitement of The Dark Knight is finally over, but let's not get crazy.
The inner-workings of Tom Cruise are baffling. His hilarious role in Tropic Thunder probably would have been enough to get people to stop making fun of his weirdness for a while. So what's the next logical step? Dress up like a nazi for a movie! Nothing says, "Hey, I'm cool and normal" like bringing up memories of the Holocaust for a blockbuster.
Thanks to crap like Tom Cruise's War of the Worlds, I've learned my lesson about getting excited for remakes of classic sci-fi. I wasn't overly excited by the trailer and now these images have me even less excited. The big attack marble and the killer fog just aren't doing it for me.
Chances are there are going to be a lot of Watchmen posts happening around here between now and 2009, but I'm trying to keep them as compact and efficient as possible. After all, chicks come around here sometimes and I don't want to go nerding the place all up.
Friday the 13th fanatics thought they were done being tortured after they were subjected to super-robot-spaceman-Jason in Jason X.
