Damn. Romantic comedies got dark. Slumdog Millionaire opens on an Indian kid getting tortured by two police inspectors. They beat him, hold him underwater, and then clamp electrodes on his toes. It’s not The Holiday or Made Of Honor. This kid’s getting ‘the business.’ Danny Boyle’s feel-good picture of the year (and it does eventually feel good—my theater applauded) opens like a film about CIA rendition.
Ten Best for Amy Adams and Shawn Levy (Empire)Fri free for al
There is a 99% chance that you will never see this movie. It’s a foreign film and will probably only play in NY and LA for half a week, even after it wins some unpronounceable award at Cannes. We can at least enjoy this clip, which is super intense.
Ah, the hallowed “magic number.” Dudes inflate it, chicks always leave a lot out, and now Anna Faris is making a movie about it. According to Hollywood reporter "Lady" centers on a woman who goes on a trek through her sexual past in an effort to find Mr.
Damn, I was planning on taking my grandma to this one. But after watching this clip I guess we're back on for Madagascar 2. Seriously, John Rambo, are you going to let Punisher War Zone upstage you like this? That's some SERIOUS blood. And exploding heads. And a chair leg through an eye socket.
Nerdcore calendar launch (Joblo)The most bizarre
I spent an entire week getting totally blazed, laying on a floor and watching the Planet Earth series over and over and over again about a year ago. It’s Eco Porn. In the future, documentaries like these are all that we will have to remember the planet. And as I was reminded yesterday: whatever we find, we must consider Mars a hostile planet.
Last night was the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show. Millions of lonely men worldwide watched while scantily clad women costumed as mythical Christain creatures and Roman slut-butterflies strutted in Miami. Does it get any more American Dream than that? Here are a few observations of the affair, with select pictures to match.

The Office and 30 Rock are dropping new episodes tonight. Can this hour of 'must-see TV' be beat? Prime Time TV
Nary does there come a time when the buxom VS Angels (Adriana, Alessandra, Behati, Doutzen, Heidi, Karolina, Marisa, Miranda, and Selita) get to strip down and show the world the…
Craigslist has some great stuff. Including this movie themed casual encounter request. “Nothing turns me on more then Jurassic Park themed role play. You must be the animatronic dinosaur, and I must be the helpless child (Tim or Lex) stuck in the park at your mercy.” Wow.
J.J. Abrams has been a busy dude. Here's a clip of some of the upcoming season of Lost. Check it.
J.J. Abrams has been a busy dude. Here's a clip of some of the upcoming season of Lost. Follow it up with a dose of the morning news.
I don't know what more Stiller can do with the ridiculous Zoolander character, but after seeing Tropic Thunder again last weekend, I'm totally onboard for any Orange Mocha Frapuccino's he's serving up.
Forget the 25 Days of Christmas, and watch some real friggin' TV. House and Fringe are owning the airwaves with two spanking new episodes. Prime Time TV
You should be thankful for Monday TV babes. And why not wash down all those turkey-day leftovers with some action packed science fiction goodness on Terminator:TSCC and Heroes?
More Spirit cleavage (Joblo)
Looks like they’ve FINALLY got around to making Oceans 14. But the part of Brad Pitt and George Clooney and all those dudes is singlehandedly played by Clive Owen. And it’s directed by Tony Gilroy, who did Michael Clayton. Which was one of the best movies of last year.
Dear P. Diddy,
There are three things in life that you can count on: death, taxes, and masses of teenagers loving vampires. Summit is already planning a sequel to Twilight, and now there’s talks that Buffy will hit the big screens. This, among other stories, finds itself among our post Thanksgiving morning news.
Screenjunkies's writer Jim Connelly breaks down selected scenes from the recent J.J. Abrams presentation of the much-anticipated, highly-controversial Star Trek. Check it out, along with the recently 'upgraded' internet trailer featuring a cameo from L. Nimoy himself.
Meet the new Lara Croft (Maxim)The Reader poster (Joblo)
John Rambo was more entertaining than anything Tarantino has touched since Kill Bill. Maybe it’s just a personal preference. I thought Tarantino was a visionary…when I was 16. Now I think he’s just sort of irritating. Apparently Sly agrees and is a little irritated he didn’t get a part in Inglorious Basterds.
It seems as though TV is taking its Thanksgiving vacation a little early. No new episdoes and a lot of reruns. But real junkies never give up. Catch Obama, aging virgins, and Butters pretending to be Asian on TV tonight.
FOX rules the airwaves tonight, so give your channel surfing thumb a much needed rest, kick back and enjoy House and Fringe.

Ever since I saw Stander, I was sold on the fact that Thomas Jane is a badass. This one looks like more solid evidence.
Be Kind Rewind was not the best project that Michel Gondry has been involved in. He was going for a broader point about how everyday people can make films that others can enjoy. Now he’s written a book about it, and he has a good point. It's the 21st century and you have all this technology at your fingertips.
