Looks like this one is going to be a bullet for this year’s Oscars, or so says the blogosphere.
Ok. Not sure how many Jr. Economists we have in our readership. Or even advanced free market theorists. But when the big Alan G speaks, the world listens. And what did he say this time?
There is a movie theatre in my hometown that we affectionately refer to as The Dollar Theatre. The reason it is called The Dollar Theatre is because movies cost a dollar. The last movie I saw there was the first Underworld. My point is that with inflation and all, I’m even willing to pay two dollars to see this third installment.
People, we live in strange times. Florida is leaning toward voting a black man into the oval office. The economy finally said “Oh, I got you GOOD BITCHES! Earnings? Whatever!” And it looks like Paramount is fast tracking the new Footloose. I pray every night that they name it Footlooser. And every morning, we put the news together for you.
His name alone drops panties from the pools of Palm Springs to the board rooms of Madison Avenue. He is Don Draper, and reasons for his success can be found in the above video. They are simple. And these are his preferred links.
This is what a rocumetary is supposed to be all about. Blood, sweat, guns, women, and enough booze to drown a herd of elephants. Looks like this one’s headed straight to DVD. Netflix, I’m looking at you.
Dirty Harry is back! And while he's looking pretty darn old, he's still ripe with vengeance and even seems to be channeling a little bit of Batman… Clint Eastwood plays an aging Vietman vet who has an awesome '73 Gran Torino (in Green). Then some punk kid who's mixed up with
I had no idea that Clint Eastwood did the Voice for the Dark Knight. That’s so awesome.
We’re trying to at least keep it sort of Halloween up in this bitch. And what better way than this selection for our weekly mashup. Not only is it thematically relevant, its technically superb and goddamn funny. Mwwwwwaaaaa haaaa haaaaa haaaaaa etc.
I never saw Cloverfield because I heard that people were totally vomiting in the theatre. And whenever I smell vomit, it makes me want to vomit. Now having seen this South Park clip, I feel like I’ve seen the movie. Awesome.
Monday Morning. A time for reflection. A time too look back over the weekend and wonder if you made all the right moves, if you did your best keg stand and provided reliable wingman services for your bros. A time for the morning links.
Ben over at CAGEPOTATO.COM has some coverage of last night's UFC fight. I love the way that Bruce Buffer has to rattle off all of the advertiser blurbs before this main event.
I was thinking about how it’s going to be lame that I have to spend all my weekend moving. Then I saw this new trailer for Notorious and I was reminded how lucky I am not to be a fat dead rapper who doesn’t even get to move into a new apartment because they are dead. Time to start drinking. Here are your links.
This is a post from Holy Taco. Click on the image for the full version. So genius.
Will Ferrell’s impersonation of bush is not the best, but it is the most hilarious. The writing is great on this one, seriously. I've been really impressed this season. Now I'm going to go have three Xanex and a Silver Bullet. God Bless America.
I'm posting this because this is the official pitch that I found with the trailer: "Bitch Slap is a post-modern, thinking man’s throwback to the “B” Movie/Exploitation films of the 1950’s – 70’s as well as a loving, sly parody of same. Inspired by the likes of Dragstrip Girls, Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill, Kung Fu Nun, and the Pant." Dude.
Richard Sandrak is that kid from a while back that was super popular for being 10 years old and totally ripped. He has starred in his first roll as a kid who is 10 years old and totally ripped. And it’s in 3-D. Thanks to Best Week Ever for this little roided-up gem.
Last night I had one too many Jamesons. I turned on the TV and watched about five minutes of the Chris Rock special on HBO on demand. Then I started packing up the apartment because my girlfriend and I are moving. Are you thrilled? Here’s the morning news, Junkie.
I always figured that the reason tiny animals make you feel good is that if they made you feel bad, there would be a much greater chance of you eating them, and much lesser chance of species actually surviving. Here’s the links.
I put this in our link dump yesterday. But it makes me laugh so hard that I decided that it merits a spot on the homepage. Manhole. 69. Straight face. God bless local news, and the stuff they just don’t catch.
Produced by Michael Bay. That's all you need to know. BOOM.
Stupid Chad Carter with his stupid Leukemia, bankrupting the Make A Wish Foundation with his usage of bureaucratic loopholes. Makes me SO mad. PS, I know I posted an Onion video yesterday. But hells bells they’re on top of their game.
Good morning. How'd you sleep? The entire staff of Screenjunkies stayed up last night and broke into a zoo. We have brand new mascots for the site. Here's the morning news roundup while we figure out what to feed a sloth.
It's not totally clear what the hell he's talking about in this clip, but one this is for sure. Bill Cosby is almost 400 years younger then John McCain. Put that on your shuffleboard court and shove it.
I feel like even acknowledging Palin’s existence only serves to feed the publicity machine that has rocketed her to being the most popular woman on earth. But I also feel like it’s that same publicity machine that is just about to grind her into a fine mash of Alaskan Moose Pemmican.
The Onion continues to just destroy the world with funniness. They are our truest national hero. God bless them.
Watch this just to see Tom Green’s neck fat. That’s it. Just that. Ok, that and Crispen Glover.
Some day in the not too distant future we will live in a world where our most important historical figures will be the cast of movies like Ghostbusters and Back To The Future. You will be able to visit the highway rest stop in your car (your Jet Car) on the Mass Pike (the Mass Jet Pike) where Dan Aykroyd dropped a duce. That day is drawing nearer as the house featured in Groundhogs Day is now a functioning locale of movie history.
Lots of things happen. Things are always happening. They happen all over the world, to people, to animals, to plants even. Here are some things that happened in movies and tv that I didn't write about today.
Holy freaking small devil girl. This one looks pretty dope. I got to be honest, I don’t really dig regular horror movies. I’m just a total puss when it comes to torture porn and teens being chased through fields of corn by chainsaw wielding freaks.
