REVIEWD: MTV’s ‘See You Sunday’ Is Hit And Miss

Tuesday, February 10 by

MTV has launched an attack on your Sunday Night attention span with four new shows aimed at the male demo. Bottom line: I’ve come to not really expect much from MTV, so I was pretty impressed with the lineup. The real gem in the bunch is Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus while the least entertaining is Rob Drydek’s Fantasy Factory. Either way it makes for a solid 2 hours of Sunday night, at least until Entourage comes back. Here’s the breakdown on each.

Showdown at the OK Corral

Tuesday, February 10 by

Most of the time is spent around the crash site, with Nathan narrating the whole thing to some listener who isn't revealed till the last few minutes of the episode. The Heroes gather and Parkman rushes off to save Daphen from visions his white-psyhic eyes gave him, snd Ando and Daphne meet up and rush off to save crashed heroes. And meanwhile, Sylar is still hunting for his daddy, and comes across a mother and a son whom he tortures pyschologically, before the son reveals a hidden power. It's a flawed, yet taut and fascinating Heroes, right after the jump.

The episode begins with some goons dragging out Henry Taylor from the trunk of a car. While that's going on, Dubaku is out and about in the public, listenning to President Taylor give a Press Conference over the TV. He walks in through a convenient store, and down into another, much seedier hideout, where he finds Taylor sitting in chair, gagged. "Does your wife love you? For your sake, I hope so."Matobo has been brought in secretly to White House to meet up with the President, along with Bauer and his crack team of ex-CTU'ers. The Prez is still continuing with her invasion of Sangala, "I wan't an explanation and I want it NOW." The Prez asks Bauer and his team. They warn her that there exists massive corruption within the system. FBI Agent Walker backs up Bauer and the team as well. Then Dubaku calls.

Tokyo! Trailer

Monday, February 9 by

This trailer makes the movie look amazing. Here's the blurb:In TOKYO!, three visionary directors come together for an omnibus triptych examining the nature of one unforgettable city as it’s shaped by the disparate people who live, work (and run amok) inside an enormous, constantly evolving, densely populated Japanese megalopolis — the ravishing and inimitable Tokyo. In the tradition of such films as NEW YORK STORIES, NIGHT ON EARTH, PARIS JE T’AIME and its forthcoming sequel NEW YORK I LOVE YOU, TOKYO! addresses the timeless question of whether we shape cities, or if cities shape us — in the process revealing the rich humanity at the heart of modern urban life.So the blurb actually makes it sound sort of boring. What's a 'triptych?' But the trailer makes it look rad. Im going to trust the trailer. It comes out March 6th.

Review: Coraline 3D

Monday, February 9 by

If you're looking for an highly-imaginative 3D animated Disneyland-like ride at the theaters, Coraline is your ticket. It's a unique movie experience, and could be the most creative 3D movie ever produced. It fits well into the genre of modern day fairy tale as it lures you into an increasingly creepy world where childhood pleasures slowly transform to nightmares. 

11 Craziest Grammy Moments

Monday, February 9 by

The Grammys are really not worth watching, especially if you are a straight male. But there have been some awesome moments in live TV which would have never happened without them. Here’s are a few of those little gems.

Friday Night Lights: Hello, Goodbye

Monday, February 9 by

    The siren call of the drumline, plastic on plastic, and the ref’s whistle brought us all back to Dillon, TX this week for another installment of Friday Night Lights. Coming off of a devastating loss to Arnette-Meade last week, our coaching staff reworked their strategy, and finally put an end to the—or maybe created more—tension between our starting quarterback, Matt Saracen, and his backup, JD McCoy. We have officially sent another alumnus to the next level, as Smash Williams was given a chance to play for the Texas A&M Aggies. Even though there were so many positive events this week, all was not well in Panther Nation, Tami gave in to Buddy and company regarding the jumbotron, Landry and Tyra’s amicable breakup finally fizzled, and Matt Saracen ran into troubles giving his grandmother her medicine and dealing with his own mother. This week’s episode did not create any new exceptional plot twists, but it did resolve some older ones, allowing us to get back to focusing on next week’s opponent.

BSG Recap: Blood on The Scales

Sunday, February 8 by

Richard Hatch was pissed.  He always loved playing Captain Apollo on the original Battlestar Galactica, and very much wanted to the sequel that he envisioned back onto TV screens. But instead, Ron Moore's "reimagined" Battlestar came out instead, and Hatch was critical of the entire enterprise.  He came around, eventually, and was offered the role of Tom Zarek, Freedom Fighter.  But I don't think that he's ever fully let his anger go, and, in fact, that anger has informed how he played Tom Zarek, who — except for a short bit on New Caprica — was never not kind of an asshole.

Weekend Movie Preview

Friday, February 6 by

That girl who got famous by screaming is all grown up (sort of) and completely monopolizing the box office this weekend. The good thing is that she's in movies that look worth watching. Yes, Coraline is based off a children's book– but it's supposed to be mildly unsuitable for children, and it's in 3D. Push has her as a Jean Grey-like mindreader who teams up with an older dude with crazy telepathic abilities to take down the man. Is she kind of cute? Find out by seeing her all weekend long.

Fred Durst Offers A Cautionary Coming of Age Tale, Nookie

Friday, February 6 by

A lot of you might not realize that Fred Durst put down the microphone and picked up the megaphone a few years back. His first big budget film was The Longshots. It was a family comedy staring Ice Cube. But before that he made this…uh….gem?, starring Jesse Eisenberg (The Squid And The Whale, Adventureland). The trailer doesn't make the film look that horrible. And now that it's getting a release I will be able to watch it, provided a DVD is sent directly to my door and placed in my DVD player by man-servant. His name is Standish. He's giving me a foot massage right now.
