Hear Hayden Panettiere Drop an F-Bomb
Wednesday, October 15 by

I know that her swearing isn't the point of this video, but to be honest, I'm kind of over the whole "celebrities weigh in on the election" thing. But, this one is short and has a hot chick so I like it much more than most of the others. I'll admit, that it even made me chuckle a little.

Bonus Features: Tuesday’s Links for Dummies
Tuesday, October 14 by

Above you'll find the new poster for the sure to be incredibly shitty rom-com, The Ugly Truth. See, it's clever because it suggests that women love with their minds, while men just want to get their junk wet. I didn't know it was possible for Hollywood to "reboot" a bumpersticker, but they've done it.

Luc Besson Film Torched By French Youths
Tuesday, October 14 by

From Paris With Love is the title of legendary director Luc Besson’s film staring John Travolta about troubled youth living in French slums.  The film has reached some catastrophic problems having to do with shooting near troubled youth living in French Slums. 

Fox News Sad About a Sarah Palin T-Shirt
Tuesday, October 14 by

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.

Nick Cage PSA
Tuesday, October 14 by

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.

Howard Out, Don Cheadle In For Iron Man 2
Tuesday, October 14 by

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.

You’re Entering a World of McCain
Tuesday, October 14 by

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.

Bonus Features: Links to Cure the Mondays
Monday, October 13 by

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.

New Sex Drive Clips
Monday, October 13 by

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.

Empire’s Predictable List of 500 Greatest Movies
Monday, October 13 by

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.

Monday Mashup: How Scarface Got His Groove Back
Monday, October 13 by

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.

We Let the Chihuahua Win…Again
Monday, October 13 by

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.

Bonus Features: Friday! Friday!
Friday, October 10 by

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.

Faking Orgasms Movie In Production
Friday, October 10 by

If it’s one thing that I continually get busted on it’s faking orgasms.

Marisa Tomei Naked in The Wrestler
Friday, October 10 by

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 Champs Watch 57 Movies in a Row
Friday, October 10 by

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.

Show Preview: The Chocolate News Surprises
Thursday, October 9 by

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.

Bonus Features: Links Worthy of a Thursday
Thursday, October 9 by

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.

Doc Watch: Billy Corgan And The Infinite Oldness
Thursday, October 9 by

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.

Discovery’s “Time Warp” Is Porn For Scientists
Thursday, October 9 by

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.

Triumph Takes On David Blaine
Thursday, October 9 by

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.

Eric Cartman’s 9 Most Evil Moments
Wednesday, October 8 by

South Park is back for the second part of season 12 and it has reminded me of how much I love hating Eric Cartman. That little boy has done some truly messed up stuff and this is some of the worst. Or should I say best? Whatever. 9. Molesting Butters

Mid Week Hump Dump
Wednesday, October 8 by

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.

Kremlin Gets Into Movie Biz
Wednesday, October 8 by

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.

BREAKING NEWS: GEORGE CLOONEY GROWS MOUSTACHE
Wednesday, October 8 by

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.

Want to Write for Screenjunkies?
Wednesday, October 8 by

We only have so many eyeballs, which means we need a little help covering every little thing that happens on TV. We're looking for aspiring writers, or at least people who speak English, to write some episode recaps for us. You'll get a byline and everything. If you want in, send a sample recap of the latest episode of your favorite TV show to FeedbackATscreenjunkies.com.

Is There a Plot Against “American Carol”?
Wednesday, October 8 by

The makers of spoof comedy, American Carol are claiming that theaters that don't agree with the film's political content are fudging the numbers by giving people the wrong tickets, thus making it look like the film is an even bigger failure than it already was. Poor Kelsey Grammer.

Bonus Features: Tuesday’s Links
Tuesday, October 7 by

When Vlad Putin is not busy forcefully taking over massive energy companies and shelling pipelines in Georgia, he drops some sick Judo moves. AP had this video and I thought it was pretty great. Apparently he has an instructional DVD coming out. Judo is the new communism. So check out the links, dear brothers.

Mess With This Exclusive Zohan Clip
Tuesday, October 7 by

Adam Sandler's latest flick, You Don't Mess With the Zohan hits DVD today, but we have this exclusive clip that shows some of the stunts before the wires were edited out. It's actually pretty cool to see how they made him swim like a dolphin. I have to get some of those wires and a helicopter for next time I go to the beach.

Vatican Talks For Week Straight On TV
Monday, October 6 by

The Vatican has planned a 139-hour bible reading marathon on Italian TV in hopes of making the church more cool. They are calling it “a sort of ‘Big Brother’ of the Holy Scriptures, but with really high cultural value.” Wow.
