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.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop Trailer
Monday, October 6 by

As a rule, mall cops are never not funny. You could take the coolest cool person from planet cool and the second that you employ them as private security for a Hot Topic and Pretzel Time, they are basically begging for wedgies.  And now we have a movie about it.  Awesome.

11 Life Lessons in The Big Lebowski
Monday, October 6 by

This Coen Brothers classic has more than just fantastic dialog and the best bowling sequences ever filmed. It also has some valuable information that can help us live like the men we aught to be. 11. A nice rug can really tie a room together.

Spy Videos From the Set of Kick-Ass
Monday, October 6 by

In the past, I have made fun of Kick Ass for its stupid name and high Nick Cage content, but now that I know a lot more about the supposedly ultra-violent movie, I'm excited for it. These fan (or crewmember?)-shot videos from the set show off some of the cars and characters that will be featured in the movie.

We Let Beverly Hills Chihuahua Win
Monday, October 6 by

There were a lot of new movies to choose from this weekend, none of which were particularly spectacular, but the fact that Beverly Hills Chihuahua could take the top spot, raking in almost $30 million hurts my heart like a thousand double cheeseburgers. Please, look at that picture up there and join me in my indignation.

Monday Mashup: The Incredibles
Monday, October 6 by

Every Monday we post a mashup. And every Monday we ask the same question: Who has time to do these?  Whoever they are, I hope they don’t get real jobs any time soon. And for the record this one is more of a recut than a mashup. But it’s really well done. Welcome to Monday.

Bonus Features: Ralph Wiggum Is Rich
Friday, October 3 by

I guess all of that Simpsons money should be more than enough to buy Ralph Wiggum a nice Bimmer, but he doesn't have to flaunt it like that. Cartoon characters are real, right? I hope so. Otherwise all of that stock I bought in the Planet Express delivery company isn't going to be worth much. But then again, I guess no stock is worth much right now. Take that economy!

Preview: VH1′s NWA Rockumentary Airs Tonight
Friday, October 3 by

In the mid 1980’s crack turned LA into a dangerous place.  That happens when you have gangs and crackheads running the show.  The cops were not much better, and NWA saw themselves as reporters on the street. This rockumentary (really a rapumentary) tells the story of their rise to fame.

New Romero Movie has Underwater Zombies
Friday, October 3 by

Let me first say that I have a ton of respect for George Romero and getting to interview him was one of most awesome and dorky things I have ever done. But, Diary of the Dead was kind of horrible. Hopefully his new movie, which he has reportedly started shooting on an island in Canada, will be much better. And no one better mention an "Youtube messageboards" this time.

“Blindness” Angers The Blind
Thursday, October 2 by

The National Federation of the Blind is angry about Blindness. Not the condition. Well, actually they're angry about that. Like in general But in this case its a movie with Mark Ruffallo and Jullianne Moore that is pissing them off.

Take a Tour of the $35 Movie Theater
Thursday, October 2 by

When I was in high school, I had my first sexual experience in a $2 movie theater during Shakespeare in Love. Something tells me that finger banging probably isn't going to fly at this Village Road Show Gold Class Cinema in Illinois where a ticket will cost you $35 bucks and Dinner will cost you another $50 on top of that.

Bonus Features: Sarah Palin Approved Links
Thursday, October 2 by

Honestly, these links have absolutely noting to do with vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, but I figure she's all anyone will talk about today, so I had to work her name in somewhere or we'd look like we don't care about the news (we don't). So, while you're all getting ready for the debate, I'll be having my pre-It's Always Sunny trip to some shitty fast food joint.

Yogi Bear Live Action Movie Poster
Thursday, October 2 by

Looks like we were able to get our hands on an early promotional poster for the upcoming Yogi Bear live action movie. And I gotta say, just reading the synopsis has got me VERY interested.

Scorsese and De Niro Back In the Mob
Thursday, October 2 by

It's freezing out today and I'm in a bad mood because tonight's debate is bumping The Office (I know, that's pathetic), but the news that Martic Scorsese and Robert De Niro are doing another mafia project has made my morning just a little brighter.

Sarcastic Celebrities Want You to Vote
Thursday, October 2 by

Let me start off by saying that you'd have to be an unfit dullard not to vote if you're able. But, I was pretty sure that last year's Vote of Die campaign proved that not even famous movie stars can get lazy 18-25 year olds to the polls.

Bonus Features: Hump Day Link Dump
Wednesday, October 1 by

The Saw franchise has become sort of a Halloween tradition and apparently there's a haunted house in California that recreates the traps set by Jigsaw and his posse to promote the release of Saw V. Because of the camera, some of the mechanical figures look kind of like they belong in Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, but I definitely wouldn't mind taking a walk through there.

Brett Ratner to Sweat All Over God of War
Wednesday, October 1 by

There's something calming about sitting down with one of the God of War games and mashing buttons until your thumb is bleeding and everything on-screen is dead. There is, however, a sparkley little bit of doubt in my heart that Hollywood's favorite—and certainly its shiniest—bad boy director, Brett Ratner, can make that translate to the big screen.

Jack Black to Play Jason Bourne…Kind Of
Wednesday, October 1 by

As of right now, Top Secret is pretty much the height of spy comedy, but Jack Black is hoping to change with what is essentially a wacky version of the Bourne movies. Black will play a chubby guy who washes up on a Cuban beach with no memory and automatically assumes that he's some kind of super spy.

Robin Getting His Own Pre-Batman TV Show
Wednesday, October 1 by

If I had to pick a character from the DC universe to get his or her own TV show, Robin would probably have been somehwere near the bottom of the list near Hawkman, but The Graysons, which tells the story of the Boy Wonder before he falls in with Batman has apparently gotten the green light by the CW. Here's hoping it's not another Birds of Prey. Yikes.
