Eastbound and Down – The Deleted Shower Scene

Monday, March 30 by

Well, it was a short but fun run, that Eastbound & Down.  The ballad of Kenny Powers was pretty much like a three hour-long movie broken up and strung out over six weeks.  And like a good three-hour movie, it's bound to have a deleted scene or two, because anyone who attempts to make a three hour movie realizes at some point they have to cut something.  Also, this is TV, so it has something called a time slot.  Wait.  It's not TV.  It's HBO.  Watch the deleted scene from this not-TV show or else, in the words of Kenny Powers, "You're f**kin' out!"  It's after the jump.

Breaking Bad Recap: Down

Monday, March 30 by

Another week gone by, another meth addled story of lies and close scrapes for our two favorite kingpins. “Hey Captain America”, says a bum to Jesse as he is walking into a convenience store to meet up with Walt. Walt and Jesse decide they are going to have to put cooking on hold for a little bit while Walt’s family gets less suspicious. So Walt tries to be sweet and get on Skyler’s good side. He cooks them breakfast but Skyler is skeptical, as usual.  Next, Walter reps Boz Skaggs as one of the best musicians of all time, maybe he’s been getting high on his own supply. While cleaning up, Walt attempts to cover up the his second cell phone. Skyler, though, is unimpressed and storms out to Walt’s dismay. Meanwhile Jesse’s parents have wised up to his drug trafficking ways. So they decide to evict him from his house which they have the property rights to. Jesse’s got 72 hours to get out.

FNL Recap: A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall

Monday, March 30 by

Panthers are going to State in ’08! What a magical week it was in Dillon, Texas, for fans of the Blue and Yellow. Emotions ran high because of twists around every bend. Grandma Saracen took a spill out of her car as she was backing out of the driveway and it became clear no amount of personal supervision would protect her from herself. The Garrity family finally broke down after hanging by a thread for so long, and it may or may not recover. That wasn’t the only thing on Buddy’s plate, as the boosters had to contend with a redistricting plan that might dismantle the powerhouse football team in the name of a better education for the children. Landry and the Collettes finally made amends, and it seemed as though the seeds for a Landry-Tyra reunion tour were planted. JD and his father, Joe, went through their growing pains, as JD came into his own and started making decisions for himself. This week was a return to form for Friday Night Lights as a TV show and for the Panthers as a football team, as they survived to fight another day.

Terminator: TSCC Recap: To the Lighthouse

With the deaths of loved ones behind them, the Connor crew split up.  Sarah and John take refuge with an old friend, while Derek and Cameron take a moment away from each other’s throats and point their guns in the same direction.   Del Monte Sarah packs some bags and thinks back to when John was a child.  His favorite stories were his mother’s jungle stories, particularly the tale of El Viejo Del Monte: Old Man of the Forest.  Del Monte was a hunter condemned to the jungle for all eternity.  As his story goes he would kill every animal he encountered but not to feed on their meat, or warm himself with their furs.  Instead, he would leave his prey to rot.  His lust for blood was his mark, and each carcass he left behind was a lesson to those who crosses it explaining what God had turned Del Monte into: half man, half animal.  Some considered him a protector for he preyed upon predators.  It was his curse to be vigilant forever.

 Empire Magazine recently revealed that Bond girl Gemma Arterton will be starring as the demi-goddess Io in Louis Leterrier's remake of Clash of the Titans.  According to Arterton in a follow-up interview, “The script is very different [from the Harry Hamlin original]. Obviously the story is the story, but it’s much more about Perseus’ mission, and how he deals with being the son of Zeus, and things like that, so it feels a little more about him, and about the issues around that.”  Hrmm.  I just want to see more pics of Gemma.  That's why I posted some after the jump.  In the meantime, here's some more morning news!Monsters vs. Aliens demolishes some box office competition, then abducts and anally probes the rest (CINEMATICAL)Bruno Slammed with NC-17 Rating (THE PLAYLIST)Creepy pic from Halloween 2 surfaces… (DREAD CENTRAL)Fox sets summer TV slate.  Yay.  More dancing… (VARIETY)Extended Star Trek TV spot airs (LATINO REVIEW)GI Joe and Terminator Salvation Video Game Footage unveiled (/FILM)New Sherlock Holmes Poster Will Smoke You (PAJIBA)

According to Variety, Emma Stone of Superbad and (less so) House Bunny fame is looking to get a little naughty in her next role. The comedy entitled "Easy A" is a modern, high school-set retelling of Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Scarlet Letter." Stone will play a student who sees her life paralleling Hawthorne's heroine Hester Prynne after she pretends to be the school slut in hopes she'll benefit from the notion she's promiscuous.  I've never known anyone who hasn't benefited from loose sexual morals, especially in high school, but something tells me this movie is going to stress the counter-point. I guess I can't really blame the studio execs for choosing the high-ground, even though  a herpes epidemic would be one hell of a marketing campaign. Now that's exposure money can't buy! (Rimshot!)     Check out some photos of Emma after the jump.

Saw the 3-D trailer for this play in front of Monsters vs. Aliens this weekend.  Even without the 3-D, Up looks multi-dimensional.  See, that's what I'd be saying if I were brainstorming in a marketing meeting.  But since I'm sitting at home in my boxers typing this, I'm just going to say that I can't wait for Up in the same way I can't wait to take a shower.  And I reek of last night's indiscretions.  You don't have to wait until I shower to watch the ALL NEW CLIPS of Up. After the jump!

In a conversation with MTV about his upcoming Year One, writer-director Harold Ramis let loose some ectoplasmic bites of information on what we can expect from the new Ghostbusters movie.  According to Ramis:"[Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and all the other core members from the original] are going to be in it in different kinds of roles," Ramis said. "We're going to be the sage mentors. There are going to be young Ghostbusters."No announcements as to who those apprentices will be, but MTV surmised that with Judd Apatow producing, young comic stars like Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd could take part.

Julie Taymor, the director of the $40 million Spider-Man Broadway show, Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark is keeping mum about the production, but is telling the press to not call it a musical, and to instead refer to it as "a circus rock n' roll drama.  Whatever.  It has music and lyrics by U2, is being directed by the same person behind Broadway's The Lion King, and is being shown in a Broadway theater.  It's a musical.  But the big question remains.  WHO WILL PLAY SPIDER-MAN?  click to enlarge comic page.
