In the interest of full disclosure, I should tell tell you that I think The Fast and the Furious is an extremely fun and easy to watch movie. No, it's not Bullitt, but it's not Biker Boyz, either. That said, I'm still not sure how to feel about Vin Diesel's plan to direct a 20-minute sequel connecting the first and the fourth installments of the franchise.
How many distraught, letter-writing Harry Potter fans does it take to change a light-bulb? None, because letters from pathetic fanboys (and girls) don't change anything.
Oliver Stone is the Hollywood equivalent to the messageboard troll. All he ever wants to talk about is the super-controversial stuff that will either make people really interested or incredibly mad. So, how does one follow up Wold Trade Center? With a movie about the president people love to hate.
I always get Guillermo Del Toro and Peter Jackson mixed up when I see pictures of them. I’m sorry, all portly effects driven fantasy directors with beards look exactly the same to me. I think maybe the producers at New Line did the exact same thing when they signed Guillermo up to direct the forthcoming Hobbit movie.
With No Country For Old Men already making rounds on some "best movies ever" lists and Burn After Reading almost ready to take to the big screen, the Coen brothers have given up a little info about the cast of their upcoming flick, A Serious Man.
NOTE: I’m not writing this post because I think you should watch the new 90210 on the CW.
It's something of an understatement, but cancer really sucks. It kills millions of people every year and now it has taken two more innocent victims in the form of Christina Applegate's boobs. She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and went in for a double mastectomy to get rid of it and keep it from spreading.
His name doesn't have the same kind of mainstream recognition that guys like George Carlin and Richard Pryor had, but most stand-up comedy fans still consider Bill Hicks to be one of the best. Russel Crowe is reportedly in talks to play Hicks in a movie about his life, which ended after a short bout with pancreatic cancer in 1994.
I always thought Warner Bros. might have stolen their marketing campaign for the Joker from a Japanese kid show, and now I'm sure of it. No one will ever have to ask these little girls "Why so serious?" And hey, it's kind of a slow news day, so be thankful I didn't post a review of that crappy new Star Wars movie.
I have a huge crush on Rosario Dawson. There's something about her smile that's absolutely irresistable. I think it has something to do with its close proximity to her chest. NBC is giving us all a chance to spend some quality time with Rosario in a web-only sci-fi series called The Gemini Division.
It’s really hard to come up with new ideas. But it’s not hard to take two old ideas, put them in your creative supercollider, and SMASH them together just shy of the speed of light. They have this machine a mile beneath the earth in Burbank. That’s exactly how they came up with Outlander.
When I used to think about how people came up with ideas for movies, I had an image of a bunch of people sitting in a room, eating Chinese food and drinking coffee until all hours of the night, when a wave of genius washed across the room, bringing to live a brilliant cinematic idea.
The sneaky little devils at Access Hollywood got their hands on a deleted scene from the upcoming Iron Man DVD. It shows Tony Stark throwing a party at one of his mansions in India Dubai to cover up the fact that he had to stop and refuel his suit on his flight from America to the USA.
Do you remember in Seinfeld how George and Jerry would always find one little reason to not like whatever girl they were dating? Either man hands, or close talker, or naked all the time– whatever the character trait was, it would totally distract them from the fact that there was a beautiful woman right in front of them.
I will express my distaste for the Harry Potter franchise to anyone willing to listen (and often to those who don't want to listen at all), so I take a little joy in knowing that all those cape-clad fanboys and girls are going to have to wait until July 17th 2009 for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. It was supposed to drop this November.
Our ongoing, in depth, around the clock, seven-day-a-week coverage of the 2008 Beijing Olympics continues with some breaking news from the weightlifting competition. Lets go right to our HD 1080i stream.
I hesitate to post a friggin' commercial to the site, but when it has new material from The Office, I feel kind of obligated. Check out Jim's new Olympic sport. Even the commercials for that show are pretty funny. I honestly can't wait for it to come back in September (end fanboy gushing). But, since that's not for more than a month, use some of these links to kill time.
Ahh, trailer mashups. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. But they are always a worthwhile pursuit, if not the essence of having way too much time on your hands. Could someone please do Driving Miss Daisy and Death Race? I think that would be amazing.
This has to be one of my favorite SNL skits of all time. Don’t give up on it. The pay off is not until a few minutes in. But it’s WELL worth the wait, and topical with todays news.
Everyone knows that if you have to explain a joke it's not funny. Everyone also knows that if something other than hard news comes out of the New York Times, it's going to be as pretentious as 20 art students jammed into a Prius.
You've already seen how much fun you can have with the old G.I. Joe cartoons, but today we have a video featuring the kick-ass toys I would've killed my parents to get when I was a kid.
It’s hard to understand what the woman is saying, but let me translate to my best ability.
Well, this one may be a chick flick. But it does have Cruz and Johannson playing tonsil hockey. So I'm willing to give it a chance. Release Date: 15 August 2008
The cartoon that almost convinced you to join the Marines is due out in 2009. And remember: Knowing is Half the Battle. The other half is cheating.
As a young lad, GI Joe was one of my favorite things. I think a lot of dudes my age joined the military because they watched this cartoon as a kid. It’s also clear that we’ve all grown up to become people with at least some discretionary income and a little bit of say in the movie business.
I’ve got to say, this promo has got me interested in the third season of Heroes. So you know what? I think i'll watch it when it premiers. That’s why Television is such an amazing invention: because you can see something on the internet about television, and then go watch it. The future is now.
I have disloacated my shoulder before, I can tell you with authority that it really sucks. When this Hungarian weightlifter destroys his arm, a bunch of guys come out to block us from seeing his pain. Fortunately for us, there were four different angles, all with brutal slo-mo. Even the announcers don't want to see it, but they do. It's like a train wreck, only the train is an arm.
Watching people go on crazy, obscenity-filled rants is one of my favorite pastimes. While Bob Saget's is probably just a viral marketing ploy for his upcoming roast, it's still pretty funny. He takes on a director, an old lady and a bird, all of whom deserve a good tongue lashing if you ask me. The Lily Tomlin and David O.
There have been some protests about the usage of the word retard in Tropic Thunder. Apparently retard advocates are not too pleased about Robert Downey-Syndrome Jr's usage of the word retard in the Movie.
