Soul Men has the unusual distinction of having, in its cast, two instrumentally famous African American performers who have both passed away in the past year: Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes. Because of this, it’s almost impossible to look at the film without remembering how much Mac and Hayes have impacted both the acting and music world, and it works to the film’s advantage.
Samuel Jackson and Bernie Mac team up for soulful comedy in this Mac's swan song. The plot involves two former bandmates who decide to tour cross country in order to honor their recently deceased lead singer. A woman believed to be Mac's daughter joins the fun and steps up to the role of lead singer in the band.Rating: R
I’m probably late to the party for this one. And even though it’s more like a recut, it’s damn funny.
Riding on the wave of total racial reconciliation that has finally swept our fine country, Beyonce is putting her bid in to the world’s first Black Wonder Woman. It’s going to be a tough fight for the part.
Whaaaa? Val Kilmer is pondering the idea of running for the office of governor in New Mexico. Hopefully my prayers will be answered and shirtless volley ball becomes recognized as the official state sport. Oh to dream! Until then, here's some links.
I saw this trailer while watching the election returns on MSNBC the other night. I noticed two things about it. One, the music is dope. Two, it is quite possible that this movie is actually a remake of The Gods Must Be Crazy. Irrefutable video proof after the jump.
Whatever your stance on the acting abilities of V. Vaughn may be, few can deny the contentious, often violent debate that erupts surrounding his Yule-timed movies. We’re giving two ardent, impassioned readers of Screenjunkies a chance to have their opinions heard. We hope you enjoy. Yours Truly. Max Powers, Editor At Large.
That's crazy, because I'm pretty sure I dreamed this last night.
Spielberg, Smith in talks for Oldboy (Variety)
Ever since I saw her in Masters of the Universe when I was a kid I always imaged Courteney Cox as being the girl next door. One thing is for damn sure I never imaged how much of a cougar she would turn out to be. MEOW / ROAR! Hopefully this new neighbor needs a lawn boy!
FROM HOLY TACO: These are amazing. They continue a long line of fun with movie posters, really a limitless realm of parody. Enjoy.
Call me names if you want. But this trailer made me giggle. Out loud.
It’s been a tough road to the White House. And now an even tougher race has begun. John Oliver looks at some of the leading contenders.
Kate Winslet is way hotter to guys who are in their 40’s. She tends to play characters that aren’t supposed to be exactly sexy, but do have sexy qualities. This time she’s pushing the envelope by wandering into Nazi territory. It’s an interesting strategy.
The first time I drank Steven's Seagal's energy drink I was afraid of 2 things. Spontaneously growing a ponytail and never being able to get the taste of salty balls out of my mouth.
This is a pretty dope interview from the Role Models Junket done by the sexy-funny Carrie Keagan of No Good TV. I’m putting the video after the jump because it is way not safe for work. It is also totally hilarious. She has a new fan.
Silent Bob's at it again with a delightfully foul-mouthed romantic comedy about a pair of best friends faced with the age old question: should we bone for money? The movie continues with the same dirty and curse laden frolics as Superbad, Knocked-Up, and all the other gems in the Apatow canon. But don't let the presence of Seth Rogen's milky white gut confuse you. This is very much a Kevin Smith film, though not nearly his best.
I like Adrien Brody. I like Jeffery Wright. I liked Ray. So I’m willing to see this one with my girlfriend.
There are a bunch of different opinions on how this magical scientific future hologram technology was used last night on CNN’s coverage of the returns. I think it’s pretty dope. Some day Wolf Blitzer's head is just going to be beamed into your house, beard and all.
I was sitting in a bar last night with my girlfriend drinking Talisker and watching the TV. A Jewish guy named Wolf and a gay guy named Anderson were talking about how a black guy named Barack had just been elected to be leader of the free world. Hollywod can't even write something that good.
This is my favorite scene from Dave Chappelle's Block Party. I'm just going to let Wyclef sing you into the returns.
Don't get me wrong. The one with Kobe and Phelps was great and all. But this one…um…I'll be back in exactly 3.5 minutes. (3.5 minutes later) Ok, where were we? Ah yes, this Guitar Hero commercial. Hmm. I'm just not as interested anymore. Maybe again in 30 minutes?
"Are you kidding? I'm William Shatner. I can score ANYTHING." This Trailer Is Awesome.
Every time a new technology comes along I am immediately confused as to how I ever functioned before it existed. Google Maps on my Blackberry is a great example. I can’t leave the house without that anymore. And what did we do before Map Quest?
Natalie Portman and Rashida Jones make another important point about the rights for which our Forefathers shed their blood. Today, when you head to the polls, I want EVERYONE to consider one thing: KITTENS! YAY!
The top headline on Yahoo news this morning was “World gears up to celebrate a fresh start for America.” What this country needs is a solid seven minute montage where we all dig thorough our stuff and take anything republican and throw it in the trash. We all roll up our sleeves and just CLEAN. Now get our there and VOTE.
Leave it to the Empire to lower themselves to such dirty tactics. How can we forget about their Wookie love child ads against Wedge Antilles' senatorial campaign? Don't forget to get out there tomorrow and vote tomorrow for what's important.
Tony Jaa just wakes up in the morning, thanks the Buddah, and spends the rest of the day kicking ass like no one ever before. More video proof after the jump.
I was the 6,666 viewer of this video on Youtube. Is that good luck or is my internet haunted? Whatever, check this masuhp. I felt it appropriate with the upcoming release of Quantum of Solace. I might even watch Casino Royale again just to get in the mood. That’s what she said. HA! GET IT?!?! Oh man. 6,666.
