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