‘The Event’ Episode 3 Preview

Monday, October 4 by

As you know, I was not thrilled with the premiere of “The Event,” but I knew I’d have to keep watching it. The second episode definitely picked up the excitement, not for any story complexity or alien revelations, but at least some surprise stabbings and icky arm implants. Tonight, “The Event” gets more outrageous and more intelligent, making it more fun to watch.

‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’ Actress Brittany Daniel

Monday, October 4 by

Brittany Daniel we all remember from the horribly apt and now cult classic comedies Joe Dirt and Broken Lizard's Club Dread. This past month she came back to Paddy's Pub in "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" as Carmen, the now post-op transexual ex-lover from Mac's tainted past. From these pictures of Brittany, I can see there is nothing dangling between her legs, but then again you never know till you know.
A word from Brittany: "I never go for the stereotypically good-looking guy."

Fantastic Fest Reviews: ‘Legend of the Fist’, ‘Ip Man 2′, ‘Agnosia’, ‘Bunraku’

Monday, October 4 by

Legend of the Fist
One of my great joys at FantasticFest 2010 was getting to see new Hong Kong movies on the big screen. I usually pick them up on DVD long before their cursory theatrical release in an arthouse, so this was like being in Hong Kong and seeing the latest blockbusters. Hong Kong films are so polished now. They no longer feel like the secret world of films you’d have to really love to put up with the dirty, faded copies available. They even do shaky cam just like Hollywood movies.

Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen is another retelling of the Bruce Lee movie Chinese Connection (original title Fist of Fury). Jet Li did it as Fist of Legend and others have too. In this version, Donnie Yen picks up as Chen after avenging his master in a dojo full of Japanese fighters. He goes from World War I to Shanghai in 1925, still dealing with Japanese/Chinese politics. He takes on the persona of a masked warrior to defend Chinese notables, so he can fight by night and romance by day.

Mary-Louise Parker Talks Dirty About Upcoming Rough Sex on ‘Weeds’

Monday, October 4 by

Mary-Louise Parker is great at vamping up her sex appeal on “Weeds” in her little boots and sun dresses. If you’re an admirer like I am, you’ll love this season’s eighth episode. When Nancy Botwin (Parker) rolls her Winnebago into town, she hooks up with a local bartender and, because it’s Showtime, you see everything and then some. He spanks her pretty little bottom and she hits back!

The Art of David Fincher Montage

Monday, October 4 by

JoBlo put together an awesome montage of all of director David Fincher's work, and DAMN is that man talented. I've always greatly admired his ability to utilize his unique visuals while still telling an emotionally rich story. Se7en is one of my favorite movies of all time, and that film completely lacks any fancy camera tricks. Sometimes Fincher goes a tad wild with the CG shots (did we really need to push into the keyhole in Panic Room?), but he always entertains. You leave a Fincher film feeling like you just saw an honest to goodness film. It doesn't even matter how many exhausted actors he forced through 70+ takes to get the shots right. 
Treat your eyes to the montage below.

Todd Phillips Talks Thailand And ‘The Hangover 2′

Monday, October 4 by

With Due Date on the horizon, Todd Phillips is ready for The Hangover 2 and has confirmed that it will take place in Thailand. Which means, we will see things that can never be unseen. Things that involve donkeys.
"It takes place in Bangkok and LA. There's gonna be some f***ed-up surprises. The three guys are back. Mr. Chow's back too."
I'm kind of grossed out by this movie already. I'm walking into this with the same anxiousness and dread I feel before watching a Japanese horror film. Popular activities in Thailand include sex with lady-boys and watching strippers eject peeled bananas from their hoo-has, sending them flying a good fifteen-feet across the room. So help me God if Galifianakis eats that banana. (Empire)

It’s Funny to See Nicolas Cage Being Held at Gunpoint in ‘Trespass’

Monday, October 4 by

HA HA HA!
Just look at this hilarious picture of Nicolas Cage being held at gunpoint in Joel Schumacher's Trespass. Am I the only one who finds it funny? Maybe it's his sad little expression, or the fact that I had zero context when I first saw it, but to me, Nic Cage plus a shotgun to the face equals comedy gold!

For those of you who care, the photo above comes from Entertainment Weekly, and is the first still released from the film. The plot involves Cage and Nicole Kidmann being taken hostage by four brutal men looking for money. That doesn't sound like much of a comedy, but neither did The Wicker Man remake, and that turned out to be hilarious! (Coming Soon)

Fox Bites On ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’

Monday, October 4 by

By Guest Columnist and Confederate Apologist Archibald McClintock VI
Based on Seth Grahame-Smith's novel of the same name, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has been acquired by Fox. The film will be directed by Timur Bekmambetov, with Tim Burton on board as a producer. Of course these lily-livered Hollywood elitists can not build up the image of a man as loathsome as our 16th chief executive without first tearing down the reputation of Dixie.
"The 'new' history finds Lincoln discovering that Southern plantation owners aren't using slaves for labor, but blood as they are actually evil creatures of the night.  This causes Lincoln to become an Abolitionist and the true motives for the Civil War are born."
The brave sons and daughters of the Confederacy will not sit idly by as the South's good name is dragged through the mud. Any historian worth a damn knows that cases of vampirism in the Antebellum South were minimal, and confined to Papists in Louisiana. I intend to write a letter to all parties involved with this drivel right after I finish cooking meth, watching Nascar, and sleeping with my cousin. (HitFix)

Olivia Wilde Will Play Justin Timberlake’s Hot Mom In Formerly Dumbly-Titled ‘I’m.mortal’

Sunday, October 3 by

Mom?
Andrew Niccol is scooping up all the pretty people for his now untitled sci-fi film. Olivia Wilde is the latest hot, young thing to join the cast that already consists of Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy, and Vincent Kartheiser. Wilde will play Timberlake's hot mom, in the film about a society where the aging gene is turned off at age twenty-five. Hence, old and gross people can appear twenty-five forever.
Originally called I'm.mortal, the film is now currently untitled. That's good news for sh*tty trip-hop bands in Florida who may be in need of a name. (EW)

Emma Stone Will Most Likely Be Mary Jane In ‘Spider-man Reboot’

Saturday, October 2 by

Sony Pictures will offer Easy A star Emma Stone the role of Mary Jane Watson in the Spider-man Reboot, Deadline is reporting. I imagine the actress will say yes, unless she hates the feel and smell of money. If this news is true, thank God they've knocked out one more casting decision.
Next one up is the role of Gwen Stacy, Spidey's first love. The actresses currently in contention are Dianna Agron, Mia Wasikowska, Georgina Haig, and Dominique McElligott. My personal chose would be Agron, as her name is the easiest to spell and I'm sure I'll be writing about Spider-man upwards of fifty thousand times over the next few years. Alright, she's also got a smile that could melt cold hearts. I hope you're happy. Now I'm emoting.

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Sound of Noise’

Friday, October 1 by

When I read the description of Sound of Noise in the Fantastic Fest brochure, I thought there’s no way it could be as awesome as it sounds. It’s about musical terrorists, but if it were really that awesome, some Hollywood people would have done it already, right? Well, I discovered at a sold out Fantastic Fest screening that Sound of Noise is one of those rare indie foreign films that is as awesome as it sounds.

‘True Grit’ Poster Means Bidness

Friday, October 1 by

True Grit isn't messing around with its new poster. The tag "Punishment Comes One Way or Another" lets you know that sh*t is gonna get real, and real fast. The broadsheet style seems appropriate for the film, and Josh Brolin's name bleeding out is the perfect Coen Bros. touch. Sure, I'll go ahead and check this one out come Christmas. It might be nothing short of awesome.

George Clooney Wants Ryan Gosling To Be His Man In ‘Farragut North’

Friday, October 1 by

Gosling bites his thumb at Clooney's on-set dress code.
George Clooney is stepping behind the camera again for Farragut North and he wants Ryan Gosling to be his leading man. Based on Howard Dean's 2004 campaign, Farragut North details the shady practices and backstabbings that take place in order for a candidate to get a nom. No stranger to nom-nom-noms, Venom-hopeful Philip Seymour Hoffman is on board as the boss of Gosling's political mastermind character.
Leonardo DiCaprio was once connected to the role, and then Chris Pine was expected to step in after bringing down the house in the play version. But in the end, it looks like it's Gosling's for the taking. No fair. He gets to be in a great movie AND Rachel McAdams. (Deadline)
