Review: Righteous Kill Is No Mutt

Sunday, September 14 by

When you're looking for two guys to star in a crooked cop movie, you couldn't really ask for a better pair than Pacino and De Niro. I mean, maybe if you were to land Jesus and Rowdy Roddy Piper it would be close. Does all that star power add up to the best movie ever? No. But, Righteous Kill definitely doesn’t suck. Rating: B-

Tina Fey Zings Sarah Palin on SNL

Sunday, September 14 by

The only reason I pay attention to politics at this point is so I'll get all the topical jokes made on late night TV. It's a good thing, too, since the opener to the SNL season premiere took a pretty good shot at Sarah "Check Out My Vice Presidential Boobs" Palin. The rest of the show was fine.

14 Texas Movies to Watch During Hurricane Ike

Sunday, September 14 by

Well guys, it looks like we’re about to lose my home state to a storm that MSNBC’s sexy Contessa Brewer is calling “Unprecedented.” In a way I’m happy that a hard rain will finally come and wash all the filth off of Houston. But it’s also going to be sad to see the country of my youth given over to the Gods of the Sea.

Robert De Niro and Al Pacino Really Love Acting

Saturday, September 13 by

I went to see Righteous Kill last night and ended up running out halfway through with a mouth full of vomit. Not because it was bad, but because apparently I have the stomach plague. So, since I'm here on the internet instead of outside on a beautiful day, I'd like to share with you this clip of Bobby D and Al Pacino showing their funny sides. (Fast forward to 5:45)

Zack and Miri Make a G-Rated Poster

Friday, September 12 by

I'm really glad that all of the red tape and political garbage surrounding Kevin Smith's upcoming flick haven't ruined his sense of humor. As a replacement for the first poster (pictured after the break), which the MPAA deemed too scandalous, Kev has released a masterpiece of stick figure-driven snark. See both posters after the break.

Bonus Features: Weekend What To Watch

Friday, September 12 by

It’s a good weekend for entertainment.  Most notably, the Weather Channel’s ongoing coverage of Ike as it holds Texas’ face under water while laughing. Here’s our weekly list of what to check out.

The International Trailer

Friday, September 12 by

Damn Clive Owen is rad. I’m such a fan it makes me think I’m a little bit gay. Children Of Men is still one of my favorite movies of all time.  Add Clive to my normal love of anything having to do with espionage and it looks like we have a serious winner. This one drops Feb 2009.

The Wild Things Arrive October 2009

Friday, September 12 by

Spike Jones is one of my heroes. He’s become a cultural icon by doing exactly the unique projects that he wants to do. I can watch any of the music videos he did with Michel Gondry over and over. And like Gondry he looks at things through the eyes of a child. This is why Where The Wild Things Are should be a great film.

Devastator Will Be In Transformers 2

Friday, September 12 by

I try so hard not to fall into the Transformers 2 hype, but every time one of these little bits of info slip out, I go spiraling back to my childhood, which I spent sitting on a rug turning robots into cars and then back into robots.

7 Villains For the New Ghost Busters Movie

Friday, September 12 by

By now, you have probably heard that a new Ghost Busters flick is actually in the works. The project is still in its early stages, but we have a few suggestions when it comes to picking a bad guy. Here's a glimpse at our short list. Ghost Dad

Jason Bateman’s New Show Really Sucks

Thursday, September 11 by

I remember in English class how they use to tell us that we had to get through at least a few chapters of a book before we were allowed to decide that it was not worth reading. I made it exactly 4 minutes into Fox’s Do Not Disturb before hurling my TV at a Hurricane Orphan.

Bonus Features: Thursday’s Links

Thursday, September 11 by

Don't you just hate when Darth Vader acts like a jerk? In other news, I got the DVD of Salo from Netflix the other day and put it on last night. I now understand why it was so hard to get here in the US for so long. This is easily one of the most fucked up movies I have ever seen. I mean, it's no Must Love Dogs, but it's still pretty bad.

The Soloist Trailer

Thursday, September 11 by

When I mentioned to my friend the other day that Robert Downey Jr. seems to have really pulled his act together and laid down the crack pipe I was reminded that this is how the pattern works. He falls apart, climbs out of a dank hooker-filled hole, makes some good movies that everybody loves, and then gets caught with his face in a mountain of booger sugar soon thereafter.

Danny Boyle Might Make “28 Weeks Later-er”

Thursday, September 11 by

I don't want to give away any spoilers for 28 Weeks Later since it hasn't been on DVD for all that long, but the ending certainly seemed like a fine way to cap the series. According to some comments made by Danny Boyle, though, the rage virus might continue raging for another movie.

Sons of Anarchy: “Seeds” Has Dead Hookers

Thursday, September 11 by

Recap: Season 2, Episode 1 The boys from SAMCRO explore the possible downside to getting a BJ from two mexican hookers who accidentally get cooked by an exploding gun warehouse.
