No one expects you to actually watch the Emmy Awards Show. I have an unnatural relationship with TV and I can barely make it through them without falling asleep. But, that doesn't mean we can't criticize their choices from the comfort of our office chairs the morning after they happen.
We have been hearing about Seth Rogen's Green Hornet movie for a while and today it got its director. The movie drops on June 25, 2010 and will have Stephen Chow at the helm and in Bruce Lee's old role as Kato. If you're not super familiar with Chow, he's the guy who has directs weird, but cool movies like Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer.
When J.J. Abrams was asked if the Shat was going to have a part in the upcoming Star Trek reboot, he claimed that Bill wasn’t interested in doing a cameo….
I'm not a big Chris Cornell fan, but I thought the song he did for Casino Royale really fit the movie. It sounded epic and polished like James Bond himself. This new Quantum of Solace track from Jack White and Alicia Keys, however, sounds kind of like they slapped it together in one of their 30-car garages.
As usual, things happen that we don’t have the time to slander. Here’s today’s list. It involves a Disney movie for The Rock, Megan Fox, a stolen childhood memory, Playboy playmates, and even more gratuitous T&A.
Update: Reports are now saying that Microsoft hasn't canceled its series of nonsensical commercials, just put them on the back burner for a while. I, for one, am relieved.
I have a thing for French girls. I’ll take them over a tanned sorority sister in a tube top any day of the week. They have style and know how to look naturally sexy. Seems like Tarantino agrees with me and has added a few new beauties to his cast. Here are some pictures.
In case you have a super hot date tonight and you're not going to be around to catch the season premiere of Knight Rider, Hulu has the whole thing just for you. And you don't have to have a date if you want to watch it, just a boss that won't mind you sitting through a 42-minute TV show during office hours. If you work for the government, you should be fine.
I have no idea why this video even exists other than to promote Mean magazine, but as a fan of Ben Kinsgley and a super-fan of Minor Threat, it definitely made me confused and even a little embarrassed. He's one of the world's most respected actors, couldn't he have at least learned the lyrics to the song?
We still have a few more weeks before 30 Rock makes its triumphant return (apparently Tina Fey was busy working on her Sarah Palin impression).
We're really closing in on the return of The Office, but until then I offer you this compilation of ever utterance of the phrase, "That's what she said," ever to be heard on the show. It obviously took someone a lot of time to download, watch and then edit these together. The least we could do is watch.
He’s known as one of the most unstable asshole directors out there, but today two of his actors from the set of Nailed are standing up for him. Here’s a little history of the conflict and some background on the ‘mercurial’ David O' himself.
I like Andy Samdberg. I even thought Hot Rod was kind of funny, but I don't get the hype people are giving this "Space Olympics" video. It seems kind of cheesy that SNL would save up all of their Olympics jokes and just use them on the season premiere even though they're a month too late. I can't wait until next February when they bust out their World Series jokes.
I have a hard enough time getting anything done thanks to the enormous amount of entertainment that's constantly available. Now, thanks to every TV show ever coming to DVD, it's getting even harder to squeeze work between episodes. But, there isn't a ton of great stuff out this week, so don't go canceling those plans just yet. Here's the best of the pack.
I think a lot of dudes don’t like Ben Affleck because he’s so successful. He won an Oscar for co-writing Good Will Hunting, has starred in some blockbusters (and some flops), and did a good job with his directorial debut in Gone Baby Gone. Now he’s back at making us feel unsuccessful by writing and directing a new Warner Brothers flick.
You would think four seasons of a wildly popular reality show and even a Behind the Music would be enough time to get Ozzy's story out there, but Jack and Sharon are reportedly teaming up to release a movie about the Oz Man's life in honor of his 60th birthday. As a fan, I think the movie could be good, but as a guy who hates hearing people's Ozzy impressions, I'm a little tentative.
It’s really hard to make a movie where a child star is defiled. So hard it took filmmaker Deborah Kampmeier many years to finally get a release for her Southern Gothic tale Hounddog. Amid boos at press screenings and horrible reviews, the movie hits a few theatres Sept. 19. Here’s a little more info about the controversy surrounding the project.
Tonight is the season four finale of Weeds and I am extremely excited. This has been the best season in a while and reports are that Mary Louise Parker gets more naked than ever tonight. 10 PM can't come soon enough.
It's Monday afternoon, so that means it's time for our weekly trailer mashup. This one is amazing, and really shows what a little music, voice over, and re-cutting can do to change the entire feel of a movie. I’ll never look at Jaws the same. Feel free to send us your favorite mashups to email@example.com.
What if Glen and Gary and Glen and Ross were all illiterates with Tourette's syndrome? It would take the love on one man to teach them to read. This one is just genius, gents, genius.
There's a lot of speculation going around today about this photo of Eva Longoria leaving the Marvel offices with a business card and a bunch of comics. It all seems a little too convenient for me, but many people are saying that she might end up playing The Wasp in the upcoming Avengers flick.
A lot of movies have tried to blend extreme sports with traditional Hollywood shoot-em-ups. But few have been successful. To be fair, the original XXX was a totally absurd movie. But it was also pretty awesome to watch for one reason: Vin Diesel is a badass. And it looks like he's back as Xander Cage once again.
You've all laughed hysterically at the Peanuts vs. Goodfellas mash-up, but according to an interview with executive producer, Al Jean, this year's Simpsons Halloween show will poke fun at The Great Pumpkin as well as the Transformers.
The only reason I pay attention to politics at this point is so I'll get all the topical jokes made on late night TV. It's a good thing, too, since the opener to the SNL season premiere took a pretty good shot at Sarah "Check Out My Vice Presidential Boobs" Palin. The rest of the show was fine.
I went to see Righteous Kill last night and ended up running out halfway through with a mouth full of vomit. Not because it was bad, but because apparently I have the stomach plague. So, since I'm here on the internet instead of outside on a beautiful day, I'd like to share with you this clip of Bobby D and Al Pacino showing their funny sides. (Fast forward to 5:45)
I'm really glad that all of the red tape and political garbage surrounding Kevin Smith's upcoming flick haven't ruined his sense of humor. As a replacement for the first poster (pictured after the break), which the MPAA deemed too scandalous, Kev has released a masterpiece of stick figure-driven snark. See both posters after the break.
Damn Clive Owen is rad. I’m such a fan it makes me think I’m a little bit gay. Children Of Men is still one of my favorite movies of all time. Add Clive to my normal love of anything having to do with espionage and it looks like we have a serious winner. This one drops Feb 2009.
Spike Jones is one of my heroes. He’s become a cultural icon by doing exactly the unique projects that he wants to do. I can watch any of the music videos he did with Michel Gondry over and over. And like Gondry he looks at things through the eyes of a child. This is why Where The Wild Things Are should be a great film.
I try so hard not to fall into the Transformers 2 hype, but every time one of these little bits of info slip out, I go spiraling back to my childhood, which I spent sitting on a rug turning robots into cars and then back into robots.
I remember in English class how they use to tell us that we had to get through at least a few chapters of a book before we were allowed to decide that it was not worth reading. I made it exactly 4 minutes into Fox’s Do Not Disturb before hurling my TV at a Hurricane Orphan.
