The super slo-mo camera is the bread and butter of the Discovery Channel and now they've gone and made a whole show out of doing stuff at super-high frame rates. The results are actually pretty cool, even if the jackhammer one is a little…disturbing.
Maybe I shouldn't give Triumph too much credit for making fun of an incredibly easy target like David Blaine, but I have yet to see anyone do it better. Conan's insult comic dog showed up to Blaine's last stunt where he hung upside down for a while for some reason. He also took a coffee break.
For the record, I would let Rachel Ray thread my corn. As long as she’s gentle. And does not have any hot sauce on her paws. It's truly amazing that this one got past the producers. And every day there are lots of things that get past us. Here are just a few.
Second Commie-related post of the day. Here’s one from the International News Desk. The Kremlin is looking to have a ‘closer’ relationship with the movie business. If there’s anything we’ve ever learned about film, it’s that the way to make good ones is to put a government bureau in charge of it.
We know that we have been REALLY bad about staying good on our word of translating all posts into seven distinct world languages. So today we just wanted to extend a big hearty buenas! to our Spanish speaking Audience and put up this trailer of Che. Que Bueno! Fiesta! Naranja!
Guys, this one is right off the wires, so we only have one picture to substantiate it. We left about 17 messages with George’s publicist but have not received a confirmation as of yet. There is some speculation that the moustache is not real, and is just part of an elaborate publicity stunt on the part of the Clooney camp.
Here's The official blurb:
Stiffler’s inane pretty-boy-where’s-my-car antics were never really my bag of cats. But every once in a while a movie can come along that’s just good enough to redefine an actor for you. Tropic thunder did it with Tom Cruise. And Role Models accomplished this by pairing Sean William Scott with Paul Rudd, a great clash of pussy-chasing eternal optimism and thirty something angst-frump. It was thoroughly enjoyable.
The makers of spoof comedy, American Carol are claiming that theaters that don't agree with the film's political content are fudging the numbers by giving people the wrong tickets, thus making it look like the film is an even bigger failure than it already was. Poor Kelsey Grammer.
When Vlad Putin is not busy forcefully taking over massive energy companies and shelling pipelines in Georgia, he drops some sick Judo moves. AP had this video and I thought it was pretty great. Apparently he has an instructional DVD coming out. Judo is the new communism. So check out the links, dear brothers.
Adam Sandler's latest flick, You Don't Mess With the Zohan hits DVD today, but we have this exclusive clip that shows some of the stunts before the wires were edited out. It's actually pretty cool to see how they made him swim like a dolphin. I have to get some of those wires and a helicopter for next time I go to the beach.
There are people who make their money by cleaning up crime scenes. Scrubbing up blood, getting brains off the wall, power washing spinal fluid from pavement. And someone has FINALLY made a movie about it. It looks kind of gross, but also dope, so I say that it’s going to be grope.
As a rule, mall cops are never not funny. You could take the coolest cool person from planet cool and the second that you employ them as private security for a Hot Topic and Pretzel Time, they are basically begging for wedgies. And now we have a movie about it. Awesome.
This Coen Brothers classic has more than just fantastic dialog and the best bowling sequences ever filmed. It also has some valuable information that can help us live like the men we aught to be. 11. A nice rug can really tie a room together.
In the past, I have made fun of Kick Ass for its stupid name and high Nick Cage content, but now that I know a lot more about the supposedly ultra-violent movie, I'm excited for it. These fan (or crewmember?)-shot videos from the set show off some of the cars and characters that will be featured in the movie.
There were a lot of new movies to choose from this weekend, none of which were particularly spectacular, but the fact that Beverly Hills Chihuahua could take the top spot, raking in almost $30 million hurts my heart like a thousand double cheeseburgers. Please, look at that picture up there and join me in my indignation.
Every Monday we post a mashup. And every Monday we ask the same question: Who has time to do these? Whoever they are, I hope they don’t get real jobs any time soon. And for the record this one is more of a recut than a mashup. But it’s really well done. Welcome to Monday.
In the mid 1980’s crack turned LA into a dangerous place. That happens when you have gangs and crackheads running the show. The cops were not much better, and NWA saw themselves as reporters on the street. This rockumentary (really a rapumentary) tells the story of their rise to fame.
I know we usually post a good trailer in the afternoon, but after watching this spot for The Uninvited, I couldn't help but point out that it has just about every cheesy horror element you could ever want all in one place. It's not every day you get that kind of one-stop shopping. Here's a list of the tired stuff you'll see.
Let me first say that I have a ton of respect for George Romero and getting to interview him was one of most awesome and dorky things I have ever done. But, Diary of the Dead was kind of horrible. Hopefully his new movie, which he has reportedly started shooting on an island in Canada, will be much better. And no one better mention an "Youtube messageboards" this time.
The National Federation of the Blind is angry about Blindness. Not the condition. Well, actually they're angry about that. Like in general But in this case its a movie with Mark Ruffallo and Jullianne Moore that is pissing them off.
When I was in high school, I had my first sexual experience in a $2 movie theater during Shakespeare in Love. Something tells me that finger banging probably isn't going to fly at this Village Road Show Gold Class Cinema in Illinois where a ticket will cost you $35 bucks and Dinner will cost you another $50 on top of that.
Honestly, these links have absolutely noting to do with vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, but I figure she's all anyone will talk about today, so I had to work her name in somewhere or we'd look like we don't care about the news (we don't). So, while you're all getting ready for the debate, I'll be having my pre-It's Always Sunny trip to some shitty fast food joint.
I’m not so much a fan of Baz Luhrmann. I think he makes movies for menopausal women and homosexuals. But this trailer makes me think that…this movie might be ok? If anything, put it in the column of tolerable date movies that might get you laid.
Looks like we were able to get our hands on an early promotional poster for the upcoming Yogi Bear live action movie. And I gotta say, just reading the synopsis has got me VERY interested.
It's freezing out today and I'm in a bad mood because tonight's debate is bumping The Office (I know, that's pathetic), but the news that Martic Scorsese and Robert De Niro are doing another mafia project has made my morning just a little brighter.
Let me start off by saying that you'd have to be an unfit dullard not to vote if you're able. But, I was pretty sure that last year's Vote of Die campaign proved that not even famous movie stars can get lazy 18-25 year olds to the polls.
The Saw franchise has become sort of a Halloween tradition and apparently there's a haunted house in California that recreates the traps set by Jigsaw and his posse to promote the release of Saw V. Because of the camera, some of the mechanical figures look kind of like they belong in Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, but I definitely wouldn't mind taking a walk through there.
Gogol Bordello is a real band filled with Crazy Gypsies from Eastern Europe. They have gotten pretty huge in the US. This movie is sort of about them, and stars the lead singer. It looks high energy and filled with hot women. Count me in.
There's something calming about sitting down with one of the God of War games and mashing buttons until your thumb is bleeding and everything on-screen is dead. There is, however, a sparkley little bit of doubt in my heart that Hollywood's favorite—and certainly its shiniest—bad boy director, Brett Ratner, can make that translate to the big screen.
