I walked out of the theatre from this movie feeling like I had a metal chair smashed over my face after being suplexd onto a mat covered in broken lightbulbs. And I mean that in the best possible way. The wrestler brings a level of intensity that you don’t often experience these days. It just hurt so good.
I went to a screening of The Wrestler yesterday. The review is coming up. In short, it basically bodyslams every other movie, ever. Another one that I’m anticipating is Ridley Scott’s interpretation of Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian. It’s either going to be amazing or terrible. But either way it's going to be bloody.
Holiday season is upon us again and what better way to say "Merry Christmas" to your grandma than by giving her a gift she can't refuse! She'll be filled with joy as she clenches for her heart medication. Click for more!
We finally have a trailer for Che that is not in Spanish and VHF Telemundo quality. I was a big fan of The Motorcycle Diaries. Im no commie or nuthin’ but Che led a pretty interesting life. And Benico is basically the best casting decision in a movie for a while.
Brother Sam: The Short, Spectacular Life of Sam Kinison is one that we can get excited by. Why? Because the script was written by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, the writer-directors of American Splendor, the stellar movie that really put Paul Giamatti on the map.
So now that Abrams and company have finally seen it fit to bestow upon the world the long-awaited Star Trek trailer, we already have complaints sprouting up like little weeds all around the web.
Robert Rodriguez is producing Red Sonja and Rose McGowan is going to play the lead. Wait, why is Rose McGowan playing Red Sonja? Oh right, her boyfriend is producing the movie. It’s way easier to land a role if you’re already nailing the person in charge of casting.

The Incredibles was the first Pixar movie I saw. It's still in my top 20.
This is not the same Star Trek that I use to fall asleep during on Saturday nights when I was a young chap. I’m predicting that the world will fight a third war that will be started by autograph hungry Twilight fans and incredibly pissed off Trekkies rioting in the streets. Video after the More.
Face it. Bond movies aren't high art. They're movie fast food. You know what you're paying for. It's huge, loud, and sandwiched in meat. So to speak. Remember the 1980s Big Mac? The hot side stays hot, the cold side stays cold. Well, Quantum was brilliant junk food. The girls were hot-ass skinbombs; the guys were cold-ass. It's not Fellini, Wells, or even Scorsese: it's junk food. So pull up to the second window and get some extra fries. Here's are your grades, class
Killshot is the second movie that will feature previously dead actor Mickey Rourke. People are already talking Oscar for his role in The Wrestler. Although you'll have to wait until Jan 16th to see it, Joblo has a new poster.
Quantum of Solace opens today and its expected to smash the weekend box office. In that case I might just stay home tonight and watch this video of Olga Kurylenko's Maxim magazine photo shoot over and over again and wait for the lines to die down. Check it out.
Call me CRAZY, but I’m going to mix things up a little bit and start the day off with a trailer. Everyone is excited about this one. And not without good reason. Watch, and you shall see.
Abby Elliott and Michaela Watkins have been added to the SNL cast. Elliot is the daughter of Chris Elliot, making her a second generation SNL performer. I gotta be honest, she doesn’t seem that funny. Video evidence after the MORE button.
Awesome Trailer. By the way, did ya'll know the world is going to end in 2012? Just FYI.
It’s being reported that Jeffry Tambor told Collider that the Arrested Development movie is a go.
This is a nice fit for the You Cant Make This Stuff Up category. I’m still only partially recovered from the first installment. Which I watched 8 years ago. I hope there’s a Paul Reubens Paris sex scene that involves lots of crying and something having to do with stuffed animals and childhood.
I keep a list of things to accomplish before I die. The basic stuff. Summit Everest, run an ultra-marathon, cliff dive in Borneo. But landing the number 17 spot is to go to an all you can eat night at a steak house with Alfred Molina and just sit there watching him devour a gigantic mountain of short ribs and talking with his mouth full. God that would be awesome.
From Videogum. This is an amazing video (after the jump). I think that Axe Body Spray should make one where they show a French Canadian Trapper using their product in various woodsman snares trying to capture a beaver.
Another day, another gem from Wonderglen productions. Remeber folks "In the world of high-pressure Hobbit Contracting, tensions can rise, and tempers can flare." That is SO TRUE.
I will always contend that Hollywood ran out of original ideas quite a while ago. The name of the game these days is just finding whatever they can, grabbing it while it’s dropping its dry cleaning off, throwing it in the back of an unmarked van, and driving it to a big warehouse in Burbank where they beat a story out of it.
See, here’s how I’m different than this lady. I don’t go out at three. I start drinking around noon, and usually start doing stupid stuff by roughly midnight. By three a.m.
There are some names in this one: Seth Rogen, Rainn Wilson, Stephen Colbert, Kiefer Sutherland, Paul Rudd, Reese Witherspoon, Hugh Laurie, and Will Arnett. I'm going to borrow someones nephew and go see it.
More from Wonderglen Productions. James Franco narrates a compelling piece detailing the work of one of the company's Chief Execs. I had no idea he was involved in the Airwolf AIDS episode. That one was truly compelling.
Looks like the contentious battle to land the role as America’s next Wonder Woman has gotten a little more competitive. This is a poster just released from the Betty White Camp.
Another day dawning across this great land of ours, another step toward total racial reconciliation. We reported yesterday that Beyonce is looking to star in the remake of Wonder Woman.
Jaden Smith set for Karate Kid redo (Var
