There's nothing like a trip to the ball field in the summer. The roar of the crowd, the organist's familiar theme, and the crack of the bat — all events that invigorate our senses. In honor of tonight's 2009 MLB All-Star Game we sat down to discuss which baseball films had the greatest impact on us as people, nay Americans. It sparked heated debate and words were said that cannot be taken back (Patrick called me a f** so I had my manager sucker punch him), but despite the brouhaha we were able to pare down the list to include the true Home Run Kings. So please join us as we pay salute to our national pastime with this montage of cinema's greatest hits (and we threw one TV show in there because it's too good to pass up).

/Film has been covering Gallery 1988's Crazy4Cult Art show for some time now. Now they have uncovered this completely awesome UHF poster created by artist Tom Whalen. In my mind, I've always likened maintaining a website such as this to the task laid out for Weird Al's George Newman character. Maybe someday we'll be immortalized in poster form. Perhaps one where we can has cheezburger?Turn your dial to these morning links…Natalie Portman is in Thor. (Film Drunk)Vanessa Hudgens will de-frock in Sucker Punch.

According to Twitch, who premiered the clip above, Treevenge is follow-up short film from the creative team that produced & directed Hobo with a Shotgun. While this sadly has no hobos or shotguns, it's nonetheless full of gore – the kind of gore that Al Gore probably had in mind every time he eked out a smile during his Inconvenient Truth presentation. More specifically, Treevenge is about trees getting their revenge on humans for chopping them down (hence the clever portmanteau in the film's title). Next time you wipe your ass with toilet paper, take a second to think about the tree that had to die so you don't get sh*t all over your pants, you savage!

Director: Jason EisenerSynopsis: Treevenge is a short film detailing the experiences and horrifying reality of the lives of Christmas trees. Clearly, for trees, Christmas isn’t the exciting “peace on earth” that is experienced by most. After being hacked down, and shipped away from their homes, they quickly become strung up, screwed into an upright position for all to see, exposed in a humiliation of garish decorations. But this Christmas will be different, this Christmas the trees have had enough, this Christmas the trees will fight back. Treevenge could be a short film about the end of days for Christmas trees, or perhaps, the end of humanity?

Okay fight fans! Tonight's recommended viewings all linger around the theme of fighting for survival in one way or another. So why not watch with a friend? And then why not punch them upside when they're not looking. I think you'll both get a pretty good laugh out of it. FIND OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP…

"Entourage" made its triumphant return last night, and with it came the return of the adorable Emmanuelle Chriqui. She took a long break from playing Sloan, Eric's smoking hot girlfriend – much to the dismay of every heterosexual male who watches it in hopes of seeing attractive women (the same ones who watch to hear Ari say something cool that they can co-opt for themselves). The producers and writers must've realized they were all morons for not featuring her on the show, and now she's back. All is right with the world (except the economy, of course).A word from Emmanuelle: "You know, "Entourage" is the biggest surprise of my career. It's never really been my dream to be on a TV series. But every pilot season, my agent wants me to do something. So this time I said, 'Okay, look, if I do television, I want to do an HBO show.'"It's no surprise you'll find hot photos of Emmanuelle after the jump.

Throughout the ages, enchanting babes with supernatural powers have come and gone, but a few exceptional ones have stuck out in our memory. This list is a tribute to fifteen of Screen Junkies' favorite magical, sexy ladies and the spells they put on us. 15. Cheras Alexandra Medford in The Witches of Eastwick (1987)Cher may be a hell of a singer, if not always the best actress, but in this 80’s magical movie she got to show off her hots, received a significantly larger role than she normally did in her films, and showed what a sexy magical babe she could be. That's her on the left of the Eastwick poster if you didn't already know.

Like many Watchmen fans, I have mixed feelings about its big screen adaptation. I appreciate it for what it is. The attention to aesthetic detail is certainly amazing and the sheer spectacle of it all is on a larger scale than any of its comic book film predecessors. But it just seems to lack the heart and fear that were so present in the book partly because the supporting characters are essentially non-characters. I held out the hope that the Director's Cut would capture more of the magic from the illustrated page. And it looks like I was right! Here is a deleted scene where the original Nite Owl attempts to fend off paranoid attackers in his home. Things don't pan out very well for the old timer but it is a beautifully put-together scene nonetheless and one that definitely should have been included in the theatrical run. You can pick up the Director's Cut on DVD and Blu Ray on July 21st. Or you can wait a few months for the 5-disc Ultimate Edition. (via Latino Review) Please avail yourselves to our morning links… Ryan Reynolds will eventually be in every comic book movie.

Happy Saturday, junkies! If you haven't already read our weekend preview, you might have missed that Comedy Central ran episodes of both "The State" and "Stella" in the wee hours of the morning. They likely didn't run this: an NSFW short written and driected by, and starring David Wain, Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter – a.k.a. Stella. It's my favorite of the "Stella Shorts," which preceded the Comedy Central show (a show which had Star Wars-level production value by comparison). Look for Moon and Iron Man 2's Sam Rockwell as a pizza delivery guy. With music by John Cougar Mellencamp.

Network: Comedy CentralCast: David Wain, Michael Ian Black, Michael ShowalterSynopsis: The official synopsis reads: A sketch comedy show that follows the absurd adventures of Michael, Michael and David. But that doesn't do this show justice. It only lasted a season, but is available on DVD and we strongly recommend you pick it up, especially Disc 1, which includes, "Office Party," possibly my favorite 22 minutes of Prime Time TV EVER.Status: Cancelled

This weekend we're certain you'll be catching Brüno at least once. (If you're not convinced of its worthiness, read Andy Rooney's review here.) There's also I Love You, Beth Cooper, which looks good and grating, other than Hayden Panettiere's involvement. But if you just feel like staying in, or you physically can't get outside because of obesity issues or allergies, we've got a cornucopia of televised delicacies for your discerning palate. And none of them are cooking shows. FIND OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP…

I'll be honest; I haven't watched anything related to the WWE since 4th grade. I always felt that I needed a taste for Natty Light, trucker hats, and trailer homes to in order to fully appreciate the sport. And I had none of the those. But after scrambling to find a topical subject for today's girl gallery – and landing one – I now may be inclined to make a habit of WWE Friday Night Smackdown. Because there's always a chance that beautiful "Diva" Michelle McCool will show up. She's the current Divas World Champion, and, more importantly, used to be a 7th grade school teacher. I leave the immature schoolboy jokes to you.A word from Michelle: "I, like most of the other Divas, get this question often. Though the girls have done some absolutely beautiful, classy shoots with Playboy, it's not for me. For now, I'll be keeping my clothes on."Sh*t. Anway, check out some beautiful, classy photos of a scantily-clad Michelle after the jump!

The What: WWE Friday Night SmackDown is a professional wrestling television program for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) that is currently airing on MyNetworkTV in the United States. The show's name is also used to refer to the SmackDown brand, in which WWE employees are assigned to work and perform on that program; the other programs and brands are Raw and ECW. And that, junkies, is about the most corporate description we could borrow from wikipedia ever. The When: Fridays 8-10PM Eastern on My Network TV & WWE HDOfficial Site: http://www.wwe.com/shows/smackdown/
