Daniel Stamm Signs On To ‘Reincarnate’ With M. Night Shyamalan

Wednesday, September 15 by

He came back as M. Night Shyamalan.
Daniel Stamm, director of The Last Exorcism, has agreed to direct the M. Night Shyamalan-produced Reincarnate, formerly titled Twelve Strangers. The film, scripted by Chris Sparling (Buried), follows a jury haunted by supernatural forces while deciding the fate of an accused murderer. Shyamalan and Sparling clearly get their kicks by locking people in things. Ryan Reynolds in a coffin, random people and the Devil in an elevator, and now jury members in a room. I hope the jury at least gets sandwiches. …Sandwiches tormented by supernatural forces. TWIST! (Deadline)

Review: ‘The Town’

Wednesday, September 15 by

The Town is filled with juicy actor soliloquies and detailed action sequences, but they are heinously pieced together in a by-the-numbers dramatic plot laden with one mushy romance.

From the action-packed prologue we think that we will be in for a ride through the criminal and FBI robbery division world of the Charlestown neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. Yet after the opener, the movie rolls downhill into a story about Charlestown townie bank robber Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck emoting with smirks, scowls, and sad watery eyes), who should really get the hell out of Boston before he ends up dead or in prison. MacRay shares this fate with his fellow bank robbing partner Jim Coughlin (Jeremy Renner in another intense performance) while finding love with a recent bank teller hostage Claire Keesey (Rebecca Hall) and being pursued by the frumpy FBI robbery agent Fawley (Jon Hamm showing that he is far more comfortable playing Don Draper than this sexless, boring-ass of a crusader here).

‘Easy A’ Actress Emma Stone

Wednesday, September 15 by

 
Emma Stone is the redheaded best friend who you wish you could have banged in your Millenium Falcon bed back in high school. With each occurring role Emma finds herself becoming the sexy/cool/geek crossover girl of the decade. Her latest movie Easy A may not beat out your favorite high school movie, but at least it will have some brains to go with the boobs for 90 minutes.
A word from Emma: "My latest obsession would be movies, probably. It would be just going to see movies and the entertainment industry. It sounds stupid, but that's pretty much what I do."
You sound like a blogger. Gross. Kidding! Are you free for Chipotle on Friday?

Review: ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Season 4 Premiere

Wednesday, September 15 by

“The Big Bang Theory” brings its A game when it moves to Thursdays. They’ve got an episode that should keep all their fans comfortable with the new night, and it’s broad enough that it won’t scare off the Thursday night visitors.

It comes up with a situation that certainly puts Sheldon (recent Emmy winner Jim Parsons) in a position to let his personality loose. There’s also a technology story that’s a little lowbrow, but in an intellectual context. The A and B story provide a good balance of relationship humor and nerd humor. I’m surprised it took the show this long to go where the B story goes.

Angelina Jolie Runs The Game On Johnny Depp In ‘The Tourist’ Trailer

Wednesday, September 15 by

The first trailer for The Tourist starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie and directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (use a acronym, dude) is up. The remake of the French film Anthony Zimmer stars Depp as a bumbling American who becomes embroiled in a plot to blah, blah, blah. Angelina Jolie co-stars as a spy for the eleventy-billionth time in her career, and does her best Gemma Arterton impression. Also, there is tango dancing. It's mandatory that spies tango.

Well hello, Ladies. Where'd you get that snazzy swag?

Two New MTV Shows Herald The “Death” Of Music Videos

Wednesday, September 15 by

MTV is continuing to diversify its creative landscape (translation: showing less Ke$ha videos) by picking up two new scripted programs. Following the lead set by nerd-with-massive-hog dramedy "The Hard Times Of RJ Berger," the network has greenlit "That Girl" and "Death Valley."
"That Girl" tells the story of a high school student who becomes popular after an accident leads her classmates to believe she attempted suicide. "Death Valley" is a feaux-documentary series starring Ben Linus's hot daughter from "Lost" Tania Raymonde as a monster hunter in the San Fernando Valley. Think of it as somthing like "Buffy" meets "Cops." Or like "Ghosthunters" but with actual plots and events happening. (THR)

Review: ‘How I Met Your Mother’ Season 6 Premiere

Tuesday, September 14 by

“How I Met Your Mother” is a comedy with as many secrets as “Lost.” I can’t really spoil anything that happens in the season premiere, so I’ll just try to talk about the comedy and tease the cool stuff that develops in the plot.

It opens with something that a new viewer to the show might think is a big reveal. Of course we know they never get right to the point. They like to set up some future event and then go back and slowly lead back up to it until we realize what we thought we were seeing wasn’t actually what we were seeing.

Review: ‘Outsourced’

Tuesday, September 14 by

I had an interesting experience with “Outsourced.” I watched it over the summer and wasn’t impressed. It just didn’t make me laugh. I didn’t care if it was offensive or not, it just wasn’t funny. Then I saw it again with an audience at a public screening and it got more laughs, and was endearing. I had the same experience with “Community” last year, although “Outsourced” isn’t as good as “Community” even the second time around.

It’s a weird conundrum. What good is playing well to a crowd on TV? Most of the time we’re going to watch it by ourselves. I guess it can give you a quicker sense of the elements that might grow on you in repeat viewings. It won’t take several episodes to realize Abed and Troy are the funny ones if you see people laughing at them right away. That’s “Community” though. “Outsourced” still doesn’t have an Abed and Troy.

Gary Ross Frontrunner To Direct Child Murder In ‘Hunger Games’

Tuesday, September 14 by

Gary Ross is the frontrunner to direct the child gladiator epic Hunger Games. Though the deal is not in place yet, the Pleasantville and Seabiscuit director is now in talks with Lionsgate to murder childeren in what is expected to be the first film in a huge franchise.
The film tells the story of teenagers between the ages of 12 and 18 who are sacrificed by their communities to take part in a reality show where they hunt one another for sport. Obviously no casting has been announced yet, but I'm pulling for Justin Bieber. (Deadline)

Review: ‘The Simpsons’ Season 22 Premiere

Tuesday, September 14 by

I’m always happy when I get an episode of “The Simpsons” early. I haven’t missed one in 22 years. It was appointment viewing and VCR taping long before there was DVR. Now getting a screener just gives me a bonus treat, since I’m so up to date I’m jonesing for the newest one.

This season’s premiere is really guest star centric and the best jokes are courtesy of the guests. That’s unusual because usually guest stars play minor roles, or at least they’re in on the “Simpsons” joke. This one really depends on them.

‘The Human Sexipede’ Porn Parody Trailer

Tuesday, September 14 by

As if the The Human Centipede isn't a sick enough concept, now there's a porn parody. The Human Sexipede is sure to be jam packed with ATM that the captive test subjects will think is icky at first, but then totally embrace. The final line from the mad scientist in the trailer really sums up the entire production. If any of you guys see the full movie let me know how it is. I'm going to stand by the fact I haven't already watched it ten times today.
