Nathan Fillion Makes Joss Whedon Proud in Scene from ‘Castle’

Friday, October 23 by

Nathan Fillion finally has a hit that isn't a cult hit!  Well Castle isn't so much a hit as it is a procederial with a steady viewership.  Personally, I'm a big fan of the show, and as always, Fillion flaunts his wit and impeccable timing.  In the clip he makes his former boss proud by donning the Captain Mal duster from Firefly while referencing Buffy, and a little Underworld thrown in there for good measure.  And all in under two minutes!  I'm sure Whedon is beaming in between frowns due to Dollhouse's eminent death.

‘Avatar’ Bootleg Trailer

Sorry for the crappy bootleg version, but it's the best quality that exists online right now. You'll have to go to the theaters this weekend to see a better version of this three-minute Cliff's Notes epic on the big screen. Then… AND ONLY THEN… can we fairly judge the film's entire worth. 

5 Real World Fails That Need a Movie

Friday, October 23 by

A quick trip over to Rotten Tomatoes will show you that Amelia, which opens this weekend, has a favorable rating of about 20%. For those of you who don’t know, that percentage means the movie sucks on a collective level. But you probably didn‘t need some Tomatometer, scientific as it is, to tell you that. After all, does the real life story of the first woman to not fly around the world sound exciting? Christ, why didn’t they just make a movie about my grandma? She didn’t fly around the world either, but unlike Amelia Earhart, she didn’t have a butch haircut. Plus, my grandma made some delicious pierogi.  All Amelia made was a wrong turn.*My point is this: if for some reason you are going to make a movie about someone who didn’t do something, there are a lot more impressive failures to choose from.  Here are five of them.Marv Levy and the Buffalo Bills – Not Winning Super Bowls

‘Saw VI’ Actress Tanedra Howard

Friday, October 23 by

 Tanedra Howard was the winner of Scream Queens on VH1 this past season, and her prize?  A part in the new Saw movie.  That Saw movie?  Saw VI.  Let's hope her performance as a woman in distress attached to a medieval torture device skyrockets her to fame and fortune.  Or at least lands her a role in Saw VII as a woman in distress attached to a medieval torture device. A word from Tanedra: "I like drama, and I would love to do action. Blow me up, throw me from a plane, let me jump off a building."That's stunt work, not acting.  It may be easier to find employment, but the Academy won't recognize you as an integral and award-worthy element of cinema.  You ever see Meryl Streep get thrown out of a plane, save the infamous scene from Kramer Vs. Kramer?Check out more scream queen pics after the jump (out of a plane)!

Indiana Jones “Nuke The Fridge” Collectible

Friday, October 23 by

Do you remember the frustration you felt when viewing Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? Did you want to unleash your inner-Christian Bale on the filmmakers after that lazy attempt? Good news! Now you can own a piece of that cinematic turkey turd with this brand new "Nuke The Fridge" 12-inch figure!Actually all 600 of the limited edition have been sold out at $175 a pop. Sounds like a rousing success. Hopefully this means we will get more groan-worthy moments from film playsets. Such as Batman's Shark Repellent or Jeff Goldblum Uploading A Virus To the ID4 Aliens.

Dylan Baker Confirmed for ‘Spider-Man 4′

Thursday, October 22 by

UGO reports that unsung actor Dylan Baker confirmed he will be making a return to the Marvel Universe in Sam Raimi's forthcoming Spider-Man sequel. In fact he had received his first call regarding the film just yesterday. Baker has appeared in both Spider-Man 2 and 3 as Dr. Curt Conners, better known as the web-slinger's scaly nemesis, The Lizard.  Baker also reportedly stated that he would essentially have a background role, but no one is sure whether or not it's a joke and he'll finally transform from a mild-mannered Empire State University professor into the lab coat-wearing reptile.  You can currently see Dylan Baker in screenwriter-turned writer-director Michael Dougherty's Trick 'r Treat, available on DVD.  While you're waiting for it to arrive on Netflix, check out today's top links:5 Horror Films Reviewed By You At Ages 10 and 24 (HolyTaco) 12 Amazing Sports Etch-A-Sketch (TotalProSports) Behold, The Reverse Photobomb (TheChive) Amputee Needed To Complete Halloween Costume (FilmDrunk) Parachuting Into Qualcomm Stadium (SuperTremendous) The Most Generic Actors In Hollywood (Pajiba) J Simpson And G Butler Hookup (CelebJihad) 12 Hitler Rants Toward Video Games (Unreality) 7 Real Movie Titles That Sound Like Porn (Asylum) Cheerleader Jayme Hamilton Lives The Jaguars Dream (BustedCoverage) Dirty, Dirty Pug Love (RegretfulMorning) Surfing The Internet Makes You Smarter (MadeMan) Carl Edwards Baby Shower Gifts (AllLeftTurns)

Jim Carrey in ‘A Christmas Carol’ Clip

Thursday, October 22 by

A new clip from Robert Zemeckis's A Christmas Carol has crash landed like your embarrassment of an uncle after a few too many eggnog cocktails. That's a compliment. To the movie. Your uncle's a mess.If you're not familiar with the Dickens classic, then don't watch, because for some reason the studio decided to put the ending online before the movie hits theaters. If you are familiar with it, then I encourage you to watch, if only to see how far Zemeckis's animated filmmaking has come since Polar Express, in which all the characters looked like they hailed from the Village of the Damned. But this time around, Scrooge and company actually seem like they have soul. Not James Brown level, or even on the level of your fat uncle when he busts out the soundtrack to The Commitments and tries to sing along, which only ends up getting the cats all hot and bothered. But it's a step in the right direction.

First Video Glimpse of New ‘A-Team’

Thursday, October 22 by

Typical "Entertainment Tonight" puff piece here, but something worth checking out at the 1:30 mark. Is it just us, or does District 9's Sharlto Copley, who's been cast as Howlin' Mad Murdock, look a whole helluvalot like Dirk Benedict's version of Face from the original "A-Team" series? 

‘Saw VI’ Actress Shawnee Smith

Thursday, October 22 by

I like to think of Shawnee Smith as the face of the Saw franchise mainly because Tobin Bell and a creepy puppet aren't much to look at.  James Wan, the original director of Saw, had a crush Shawnee since he was 14, which is why he decided to cast her as Amanda.  Now she's been getting hypodermic needles in her arms and reverse bear traps clamped to her face for years now, and I'm sure she couldn't be happier about it.  A word from Shawnee: "One of the most breathtaking moments in my life was meeting Anthony Cumia. His boyish charm really moved me." If you think meeting a morning talkshow disc jockey is breathtaking wait until you meet a writer of an entertainment blog.  Those guys'll knock your socks off with their boyish charm and rugged, Cheetos covered fingertips.   Check out more breathtaking moments of still photography after the jump!

MSNBC Mistakes Jesse Jackson for Al Sharpton

Thursday, October 22 by

MSNBC mistakes Jesse Jackson for Al Sharpton – Watch more Funny VideosWell… kudos, I guess, to MSNBC's Contessa Brewer for not disappearing and leaving a Contessa Brewer-shaped cloud of dust after having the Reverend Jesse Jackson remind her that he is, in fact, not the Reverend Al Sharpton as she introduced him. Apparently MSNBC thinks all wise, elderly black reverends are named Rev. Al Sharpton. Or else they thought Al Sharpton was coming, and he cancelled at the last minute, leaving them with one choice: get "the other one." Then some poor intern forgot to change the script… and the rest pretty writes itself.  Tune in to "Countdown" this evening, when Keith Olberman interviews star of the Lethal Weapon series, Forrest Whitaker.
