COMMANDO GETTING A REMAKE?

Wednesday, June 10 by

Remember when I said they'd make a Commando sequel before they'd reboot the film?  I lied.  Actually, I never said anything about anything.  But the rumors have started flooding in, and Slashfilm has found several instances of corroborating evidence that indeed, a Commando sequel just might be in development… and that it might have a star already willing to take up the John Matrix mantle. The trail of clues starts in Australia, where, according to JoBlo, there's an article in a magazine called RCI that simply states a remake is being developed. Okay.  But what of it?  I heard Fox just optioned the remake of Tom Rothman's dream he had last night, a dream that was essentially a reënvisioning of Garfield 2. But there's more.  CineFools.com also has picked up on the possibility that Dwayne Johnson is attached to the film already.  I don't know how I feel about this.  I think I have to meditate on it by watching the GREATEST opening credits sequence of all time… from the original Commando.  You can watch it, too, after the jump.

Different smart people are always debating what it is that movies are supposed to do for us.

Drama, Coming of Age, Suburban Comedy, 1990's Hip Hop parody comedy.  Here, in an intro to the genre, we present you with a survey course, Movie Masturbatus Interruptus 101.   AMERICAN PIE

MICKEY ROURKE IS WHIPLASH IN ‘IRON MAN 2′

Tuesday, June 9 by

Above is the first official look at Mickey Rourke as baddie "Whiplash" in Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2: Our Secrecy Has Become Self-Parody.  Originally, the character of Whiplash was female, but has since been reënvisioned as a dude whose real name is "Marc Scarlotti" within Marvel's Ultimate line of titles.  Here's a pic:On the downside, the Rourke version of Whiplash kinda looks like a pirate from the future.  On the upside, the Marvel comics version of Whiplash looks like DC Comics' Bane character.  And something tells me that the image of Rourke is pre-official costume.  That "something" is the official Iron Man 2 Whiplash concept art, which you can see after the jump.

Zack Morris on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’

Tuesday, June 9 by

Kudos to you, Mark Paul Gosselaar, for being able to make fun of yourself.  Kudos, to you, sir!  Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Mark Paul Gosselaar, currently starring in "Raising the Bar" on TNT, showed up in full "Saved By the Bell" Zach Morris regalia, and did a classic Zach Morris direct-address to camera.  It was kind of uncanny how much he can still pull off Bayside High's coolest student ever.  The phone you could choke a horse with played no small part in selling it.  Say what you want about Jimmy Fallon as a host.  He's still finding his legs.  But you can't deny he and his team of writers – including head staffer A.D. Miles from "The State" – are coming up with some material that rivals Conan's Late Night crew.

CARRADINE MAY HAVE DIED AT THE HANDS OF NINJAS

Tuesday, June 9 by

The death of David Carradine grows more and more bizarre by the day. At first it was believed that the actor had committed suicide. Later it was ruled as an accidental death due to a session of auto-erotic asphyxiation gone awry. Now, the family's lawyer is claiming that Carradine was killed by ninjas because the Kung Fu star was trying to uncover the shadowy doings of the secret society.Wait. This is almost exactly like the plot of Mortal Kombat. Robert Carradine, Shao Kahn has challenged you to a duel.

SUMMER MOVIES… AND SNUGGIES!

Monday, June 8 by

The Snuggie.  You may not own one, but you probably know someone who does, or at least you're familiar with the "blanket with sleeves" that's become a bit of a internet meme.  It's such a ridiculous yet attractive product that it's managed to seep its way into mainstream media, making appearances on shows like "30 Rock," and "The Big Bang Theory."  And much of its popularity seems to be based on this really lo-fi – some may say terrible – commercial.  Snuggie Commercial – Watch more Funny Videos
