I used to have a Blood for Blood T-shirt that said "Fuck Fred Durst" on the back and people used to get offended by it from time to time. I never quite made it to Fox News, though. Apparently there are some nasty T-shirts floating around with a mean message about the potential VP and it has this anchor and a feminist via satellite pretty upset. Uncensored pic after the break.
I don’t know where people stand on this issue. But in the coming months we all have to come together as a nation and make a serious decision about Nicholas Cage.
We don't usually do these little casting notes, but this is a pretty big one. Tony Stark's pal, Jim Rodes (who also happens to be War Machine) will be played by Don Cheadle instead of Terrence Howard in Iron Man 2. It's a trade-up in my opinion, as long as Don doesn't bring his awful accent from Ocean's 11.
I never noticed how much John McCain and Walter from The Big Lebowski really have in common. They both mention their military service at times when it's completely inappropriate and they both love firearms.
Not everything Spike Jonze has done in his career has been spectacular, but the opening sequence for Lakai's "Fully Flared" skate video is amazing. Even if you're not a skater, you can still appreciate all the stuff that blows up. Plus, it'll help hold you over as you wait for Where the Wild Things Are.
The genius thing about making a movie with a donut costume is that you can shoot some promo videos for relatively cheap. You don’t have to sit the smartest dudes from the internet down in a windowless room to come up viral gold. Skateboarding and being unable to bend at the waist are entertaining enough. Click through for the second one.
I was going to include this in the link dump, but I just spent a half hour counting all of the movies I have seen from this list and I thought you might want to do the same. My tally came in at 251. There are quite a few older movies in there I just haven't gotten around to seeing as well as a whole shitload of Disney animated movies I don't care about.
Different movies are different things. There’s not some goal that every film has to have. You don’t compare Superbad to There Will Be Blood. Although some films are great, and some films are just terrible, the majority are just movies. They are something you watch because you want to be entertained. Body of Lies falls into this category.
When I was a kid I would watch Bloodsport and always end up getting in some sort of kick-fight with my sister. I would always lose because I was younger. Now I’m bigger, so when this movie comes out, I’m going to invite her to it, and when its over I’m going to beat the everloving sister crap out of her right in the lobby of the theatre. ROUNDHOUSE.
Vice magazine made a point once that if you really think about it Scarface is really a story about a coked-up Cuban dude who was on top for about 2 years before screwing it all up and getting absolutely riddled with bullets. With that in mind, he has given countless fat kids who sport an oversized shirt bearing his semblance something to aspire to.
I know, this isn't a great time for new movies, but is it so bad that we had to make an awful talking-dog movie take the number one spot two weeks in a row? Have you even considered the repurcussions? Think of how many headlines this morning have a stupid "top dog" pun in them. And with that kind of showing, there's no question that there's going to be a sequel.
I think this will be a good movie. But I’m kind of noticing a similarity between this trailer and the first one for Quantum of Solace. Not just the Daniel Craig thing. But the whole black and white beginning part. With the banging noise. And the people talking. You know what I mean. Just roll the clip.
Personally, I thought last night's primetime SNL show was boring and unfunny, but posting political clips gets the Huffington Post a zillion clicks a week so I figure I should get in on that action, too.
If it’s one thing that I continually get busted on it’s faking orgasms.
The string of pre-Halloween horror trailers continues to pour out, this one pitting a lovely young lady against the ghost of her twin who apparently died before it could be born. I'll admit it actually does look pretty creepy, but I still believe that I can kick the crap out of any little kid, monster or not. Also, I saw at least two Dexter actors in there. That doesn't have anything to do with the movie, I just really like Dexter.
Given the nature of Takashi Miike’s work, it’s only natural that someday he and Quintin Tarantino would cross paths, which is exactly what happened with Sukiyaki Western Django. Please note that this is not a Tarantino film, which anyone who hears about this movie seems to think.
We may be late to the party on this one. But our list of reasons to see Darren Aronofsky’s new movie just got longer with the realization that Marisa Tomei plays a stripper. A naked stripper. For the uninitiated, Tomei is a serious MILF who has somehow only gotten hotter with age. Here area few pics.
Netflix put on a movie-watching marathon in New York City. Suresh Joachim and Claudia Wavra sat through 123 hours and 10 minutes of entertainment, which translates into 57 movies of various quality. The last movie was Thelma and Louise, but I guess even a brutal rape isn't enough to keep you awake after that many hours of movie-watching.
When I got the DVD screener for David Allen Grier’s new show, Chocolate News I was a little worried about watching it to review for the site. I figure I am 1) totally not the demographic, 2) use to “ethnically targeted” comedy shows being absolute crap. I honestly could not take Mencia.
I have no idea what "Unleashed" is, but they seem to be disturbed by watching it, which is enough to make me interested. I guess it's the same part of my psyche that made me end up watching 2 girls 1 cup 60 times in a single week. That part of me is kind of messed up, but it's better than the part that makes me steal. Here are some links.
CAR CHASE! SHATTERED AUTOMOBILE GLASS! BACK WINDOW BLOWN OUT! SCREEEECH! DOWNSHIFT! EEEEERRRRRRHHHHHTTT! ROUNDHOUSE KICK! JASON STRATHAM! JACK KNIFE! WHAM. BOOM. WE ARE NOT PLAYING GAMES! Transporter 3. ROUNDHOUSE. See it.
I would be interested in watching a behind the scenes sort of thing of Smashing Pumpkins touring back in 1996. But 2007 does not have the same appeal.
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.
