‘UNCLE BUCK’ REMAKE THANKFULLY A DIRTY, DIRTY LIE

Saturday, September 5 by

When not listening to Bon Jovi albums, our buddy Dustin at Pajiba runs a pretty kick-ass movie site. One day last May he was feeling a little impulsive and announced to his readership that he would fabricate a news story within the coming days. He successfully created the rumor that "funny" man Dan Fogler would try to fill John Candy's size 13's with a remake of the John Hughes classic, Uncle Buck. The lie went by unnoticed and Dustin, distracted by a TBS airing of Son-in-Law, forgot to lift the veil on his prank. Hilariously, the rumor made it to the Fogler camp. Here's video of Dan denying any involvement in the fictional project:Thankfully, this remake was only a rumor but this was a risky deceit. Like Gods of the Nasuverse, the retread could have been accidentally willed into existence thus killing many a childhood. That's why we as writers should not start rumors, like the one I started above about John Candy's shoe-size. (Pajiba)

ANGRY CAT CHASES SOCK (A.K.A. THIS NEW CLIP FROM ’9′)

Friday, September 4 by

I wonder if this angry feline is all that remains of Brownie the Cat in the future? I wouldn't be surprised. If I were a cat and got an arrow through the head, I'd run around all day chasing sentient socks, especially if they sound like Elijah Wood. In read in this month's "Cat Fancy" that "Elijah Wood's voice" is second only to the sound of a tuna can opening in terms of What Turns Your Cat On.  [Clip from 9 courtesy of Coming Soon.]Bat these weekend links around a bit and then sleep for 18 hours: Celebrity Couples With Their Heads Switched (HolyTaco) Busey Time: Bird Season's Over, Butthorn (FilmDrunk) 20 Sexy Catholic Schoolgirl Photos (Manofest) Check In The Pockets Of Your Rented Tuxedo (Pajiba) Jessica Simpson's Breasts Are Unfortunate (CelebJihad) The 10 Best Ghosts In Movies (Unreality) Drive-Thru Church Open 24/7 (Asylum) Why We Love College Football: Photo Gallery (BustedCoverage) Girl Keeps Her Boobs And Her Polish In Her Bra (RegretfulMorning) Blount Punches Boise Player Right In The Kisser (TotalProSports) The First Things Woman Notice About You (MadeMan) Darrell Waltrip Keeps Canada Down (AllLeftTurns) Cop Punches Fat Guy During Massive Brawl (NothingToxic) When Pottery Gets Really Sexual (Atom)

‘Glee’ Actress Jassalyn Gilsig

Friday, September 4 by

Jessalyn Gilsig (one of the more interesting names I've ever typed) stars as Terri Schuester in Glee, premiering next Wednesday.  Jessalyn is no stranger to TV, as it appears she's been in almost every show in the past ten years.  Alright, not every show, but the list includes Nip/Tuck, Heroes, Friday Night Lights, CSI:NY, Law & Order, Prison Break, NYPD Blue, Boston Public, and The Practice.  Damn Jessalyn, you've been bus-y.  You must keep your trim figure running from set to set to set to set.     A word from Jessalyn: "I'm proud that I can be single. I think it's good being alone." Oh so that's how you wanna play it?  Alright, I can act aloof, too.  Yeah, being single is awesome.  I love not coming home to someone who cares for me and rubs my shoulders when I'm stressed.  Frozen TV dinners rock my world, as my lonely tears drip into luke warm apple cobbler!  At least there are pics of you after the jump to keep me company…

INAPPROPRIATE MOVIE LAUGH TRACKS

Friday, September 4 by

The "laugh track" has a long and storied history of letting morons know when to laugh. But when paired with the wrong footage, the use of a laugh track becomes highly inappropriate. To prove this asinine point, we here at Screen Junkies went ahead and added laugh tracks to five inappropriate films. We hope you like it, because it's the first of 47 installments.  Enjoy. Crash Racism + Laugh Track = Inappropriate     The Deer Hunter Russian Roulette can be funny, but not when the players are coerced. Inappropriate!

KEVIN SMITH SPENDING LABOR DAY TWEETING

Friday, September 4 by

According to /Film, Kevin Smith won't be barbecuing this coming Labor Day.  Instead, he's decided to hold a 24 hour Q&A session on Twitter to promote his latest book Shootin' The Sh*t With Kevin Smith.  We commend him for forgoing the deliciousness of baby back ribs and crisp, buttery corn on the cob in favor of a computer screen and tedious fan inquiries.  We'll save a plate for you, Kevin.  Other Morning News Links:Arrow Kitty Makes it to TV (Warming Glow)5 new clips of Viggo Mortensen in THE ROAD (Latino Review)Dan Fogler responds to Pajiba.com with WORDS (Pajiba)

‘Sons of Anarchy’ Actress Taryn Manning

Thursday, September 3 by

Taryn Manning is our second lovely Sons of Anarchy lady of the week, and we'd like to send out a special thanks to the show's casting director.  Last season Taryn played Cherry, the Prospect's adoring girlfriend who wanted to be his 'ol lady more than anything else in the world.  But she got herself into a bit of a pickle with the ATF and had to split Charming.  We're hoping she returns to town this season and brings that sexy, raspy voice back with her.  It's like the smooth, slow hum of the Harley I'm not cool enough to own.        A word from Taryn: "The thing that makes me feel most alive is when I'm playing guitar and singing." The thing that makes us feel most alive is when we're looking at you wearing silky clothes that trace your silhouette in such a way that it teases us with the gloriousness hiding underneath.  …While we're playing guitar.  Looks like there's some inspiration for us after the jump!

EXTRACT: MIKE JUDGE’S COMEDY FORMULA

Thursday, September 3 by

This Friday sees the release of Mike Judge's Extract, his third live-action comedy. In 1999, Office Space was a huge success and proved Judge could do things outside of the animation world and do it well. His follow-up, Idiocracy (2006), was greeted with lukewarm feelings and absolute zero box office, but its cult following is rabid, and the film cemented Judge as a comedy writer/director with a damn unique voice. So we got to asking ourselves… Having seen the trailer and some clips from Extract, is there a formula to Judge's acerbic wit and humdrum social satire?  We cooked something up, let it percolate, and then bottled it at the source. And now, faithful shareholders, we give you: "Mike Judge's Comedy Formula."  

‘CAPTAIN EO’ RETURNING TO DISNEYLAND

Thursday, September 3 by

 The Playlist is reporting on a rumor that Michael Jackson's Captain EO may be making its way back to Disneyland. According to Disney insiders, the film will be back in the park this January. Man, 3D and celebrity deaths are soooo hot right now. The line is kind of blurry on this one. What do you think, heartfelt tribute or distasteful money-making ploy? Check out these links in eye-popping 2D!!! Guy Ritchie to direct Lobo movie. But why? (/Film)Mastodon scores Jonah Hex.

HAWK JONES… 10-YEAR-OLD COP!

Wednesday, September 2 by

Check out this three-minute sizzle reel from HAWK JONES that the good gents at Everything is Terrible have strung together. Imagine if the cast of SCARFACE & LETHAL WEAPON got the reverse treatment that Tom Hanks got in BIG.  Yes, minds blown and eyeballs effed in the A.  I would warn you about spoilers, but the chances that you'll actually find the film in its entirety are slim to none. (And yes, that is a personal challenge to you all. If you can find it and tell us where to get it, and we can actually get it… then you get a prize. For real. We can negotiate.) According to imdb.com, there's a straight-to-video movie called HAWK JONES that was released in 1986 and directed by one Richard Lowry, who also scored the film.
