UPDATED: Sexy Kristen Stewart As Joan Jett
Saturday, December 20 by

[Editor's Note:  I am at my parents house for the holidays in South Texas. The only thing in the theatre that I had not see was Twilight, so I went. I was the only person in the theatre that had not just had her first period. Watching the movie made me change my stance on Kristen Stewart. Best, MAX POWERS.]Kristen Stewart is my kind of pretty. She's got the natural beauty thing on lockdown. I've basically been in love with her since Into the Wild, which I thought was great film. She was 9 types of sexy jailbait. It's a shame that Twilight was a movie I was not willing to touch with my worst enemy's eyeballs, even though Stewart was in it. I'm definitely willing to watch her play Joan Jett. That story and more in our news roundup.  the worst fucking actress in the entire world. Here's a few for the weekend.

William H Macy Is Not Ari Gold
Friday, December 19 by

Its was a big news story yesterday that Jeremy Piven was leaving the Broadway show Speed The Plow due to high mercury content in his blood. This made me think "Of course he has a high blood-mercurey content. Mercury was the God of WAR. He's ARI GOLD. His veins run not with normal vitreous fluid, but rather course with the mightiest quicksilver known to man."  And now the news today is that Piven will be replaced by…William H. Macy? Woah.

Against The Dark Trailer
Friday, December 19 by

The Brass at Corporate are telling me that I need to make the site more accessible to our deaf audience. So I went ahead and transcribed the important voice over for the trailer of this forthcoming Steven Seagal film. I put it in all caps so the hard of hearing can understand how intense it is. Here it is:VAMPIRE HUNTERS LED BY A MASTER SWORDSMAN WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO SAVE THE HUMAN RACE. STEVEN SEGAL. AGAINST THE DARKAwesome. I've already bought my ticket at e-moviedango.com

Bay and Bruckheimer Do ‘Cocaine’
Friday, December 19 by

Hollywood Reporter wrote today that Bay and Bruckheimer will be the execs on a new HBO series based on the documentary Cocaine Cowboys. I REALLY hope they go for one part Entourage, one part Scarface, and FOUR THOUSAND PARTS MICHAEL BAY (BOOM).  I posted on Cocaine Cowboy's II about five months back, the follow-up to the inspiration for the show. It also led me to compile a list of some of the best documentaries about the black market, a subject I am fascinated about. And now, some daily news.

Adventureland Trailer
Thursday, December 18 by

I definitely liked Jesse Eisenberg in The Squid And the Whale. But that's a pretty intense movie. Adventureland will be the test of if his nervous, smart dude appeal will play well in a comedy. It's either going to be a great contrast, or I'm going to want to crawl through the screen and slap him.

You Cant Make This Up: Buc’s DE Changes Name in Honor of ‘Teen Wolf’
Thursday, December 18 by

People, you can't make this stuff up:Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Greg White has officially changed his name from Gregory Alphonso White Jr. to Stylez G. White, the Tampa Bay Tribune reported on its Web site. The name, according to White, was inspired by the 1985 Michael J. Fox flick featuring some rather hairy on-court hoops action."That was his best friend's name," White said, according to the paper. "I always liked that name. It's not that I don't like Greg White." (from Fox Sports)American Dream: Attained. And now, the rest of your morning news roundup.

Give Me Your Badge And Gun
Thursday, December 18 by

From HOLY TACO. This is a great collection of the classic "Give Me Your Badge And Gun" scene which occurs in basically every cop movie or TV show. It's amazing that nobody ever mixes it up. Turn in your uniform, give me the keys to the shotgun locker, leave your special police radio and computer with Dolores in HR– none of that stuff. Just the badge and gun.

Denis Leary Discusses Denis Leary Films
Thursday, December 18 by

This is a pretty great video. It's exactly what the title says, except that they talk about the crappy movies. I remember watching Operation Dumbo Drop in theaters and thinking it was basically the best film ever made. An elephant? On a plane? And you're going to drop it? Out of the plane? That's movie gold.

How Addicted Are You?
Wednesday, December 17 by

If there's one thing in life that Im kind of embarrassed about, it's my cankles or failing third grade (twice) or not being able to run a mile in under 14 minutes crappy knowledge of old movies. I write about movies all day long and still haven't seen some of the most important films ever made. Aside from a few Hitchcock flicks as a kid, my family just didn't watch the classics. Now I spend so much time trying to keep up with new releases it's just almost impossible to catch up. Slashfilm did a post about a ranking system created by Filmaddict that allows you to calculate how much of a movie addict you are. Find out your score.

I Love You Man Trailer
Wednesday, December 17 by

I've heard good things about this flick from a friend who worked on it. It's tested really high in screenings. And it does raise an important issue. At a certain point in life, the time for dudes to make friends with new dudes is basically over. Let's call that point Age 26. By then you either have a group of bro's that you're pretty set on, or you're so involved with a girl that your balls will slowly slide back up into your abdomen where they started from when you were born.

BREAKING NEWS: Clint Eastwood Is Old
Wednesday, December 17 by

"You can't stop everything from happening," Eastwood says. "But we've gotten to a point where we're certainly trying. If a car doesn't have 400 air bags in it, then it's no good."  These, among other things, were recently growled by the famous tough guy. Here are some more reasons why Eastwood believes that America is filled with total pussies. In an interview appearing in the January edition of Esquire, Clint recalls his days as a shy, depression era child, fighting bullies for scraps of food and relying on his own grit to get by. He wants to know what this modern fascination is with talking things over when we could all just punch each other until the problem is solved. He says the root of the problem is that people spend too much time worrying about the meaning of life, sitting around pondering things that just don't matter. He also notes that he doesn’t understand body piercing, that he wants his tapioca pudding, and that rock music is TOO loud. Huumph.

Bush Enters The Matrix
Tuesday, December 16 by

Listen, I don't care what  your stance is on either his domestic or international agenda. It's a time for the world to come together, and this is the first thing we can all agree on: George Bush is a president that can dodge the HELL out of a flying shoe. A different type of video evidence after the jump.

Jessica Alba To Guest Star On ‘The Office’
Tuesday, December 16 by

 NBC announced today that Jessica Alba will be guest starring along side Jack Black in the special post Super Bowl episode of The Office titled Stress Relief.  The two of them are reportedly going to be acting in a bootlegged Hollywood movie that the employees of Dunder Mifflin attempt to watch during the work day.  This reminds me of the time I worked at Cinnabon at the food court and the assistant manager and I tried to watch Gwyneth Paltrow and Jack Black in a bootleg copy of Shallow Hal. The thought of desert for breakfast still makes me puke a little.

What Doesn’t Kill You Trailer
Tuesday, December 16 by

Two childhood friends from South Boston turn to crime as a way to get by, ultimately causing a strain in their personal lives and their friendship. While that official synopsis does not sound mind blowing, I'm a big fan of Mark Ruffalo. I would also like to challenge Amanda Peet to a staring contest. I would lose, but that does not change the fact that she is very, very pretty.

Carla Gugino To Play A Porn Star
Tuesday, December 16 by

It seems like more women in Hollywood are getting into roles as either porn stars or strippers. I guess times are tough. Last week it was Jessica Biel playing an artsy stripper. This week its Carla Gugino prepping to act our her the best fake DVDA scene that the Groundlings Acting Academy could ever prep you for.  According to Empire, "The film's a sequel to Women in Trouble, an ensemble comedy about a day in the lives of 10 LA women." HA! See! That proves my long held suspicion: One out of ten women in Los Angeles are in fact porn stars.  Carla Gugino to play a porn star (Empire)

President To Face Monster Demon Attack
Monday, December 15 by

Every once in a while you see a real news report that looks like it's explaining a scene from a movie. I always thought it would be awesome to devote an entire night of news to covering the carnage that occurs in one film. Live Free or Die Hard would be a good one. It would take five full hours of uninterrupted coverage to detail the destroyed buildings, cabs launched into helicopters, and dead bystanders.

REVIEW 2: The Day The Earth Stood Still
Sunday, December 14 by

(Editors Note: Sometime's two people from the massive staff of Screenjunkies review the same movie, and the best review wins. This is one of those occassions. Here's Thomas Anderson's. Max Power's review can be found here.) I have a confession to make: I’m a sucker for any good old fashioned sci-fi trip, even if said sci-fi trip involves some overused clichés and a plot that doesn’t entirely make sense.  These flaws can be forgiven if the rest of the show gives enough thrills, special-events driven destruction, and Keanu Reeves.
