Weekend Movie Lineup With Rising Lichens

Friday, January 23 by

This past monday was considered the most depressing day of the entire year. I don't know how scientists decided that, but they are scientists so we must stand behind them as a country and not question their important work. My point is that there is a possibility that this could be the most depressing weekend of the year. You are best served to only leave the couch in order to visit your local theatre, or to purchase more liquor. Here are your options.

Ink Trailer Is Creeptastic

Friday, January 23 by

I was really impressed by this trailer. It looks pretty damn original with some fantastic art direction and a great concept. I have no idea what the budget is, but I cant imagine they dropped a lot of money on making it. My prediction is that the movie will turn heads and the director will sign with a studio and make something big and awesome and creepy. Or it will be a total flop that nobody will give a crap about. Before the verdict is in, check out the film's site.Thanks to Filmdrunk for the tip.

Morning News With Rubber Breast Debate

Friday, January 23 by

As much fun as it is to listen to Pelosi talk about how big Obama's package is on MSMBC, I'm turning my attention to something much more important: Your Morning News. Marijuana Addiction Makes Woody Harrelson Forget Shoes (MTV)Rights to Fincher’s Torso in Limbo (/Film)Amy Fisher Makes A Porno (Filmdrunk)Pope Prepares To Sing Chocolate Rain, Film Cats (Variety)Sienna Miller Debates Rubber Breasts (EW) 

Retreat to Move Forward

Friday, January 23 by

Time to recap the best comedy on television: 30 Rock. I laughed, I cried, I prayed… nah, I just laughed. In this episode Jack convinces Lemon to go to an upscale retreat for businessmen, Tracy thinks he has diabetes and doesn’t care at all, and Jenna and Frank have sex. That’s right–the typically disgusting writer and the typically babe-ish actor hook up.   

Undercover Dunder-Mifflin Brothers

Thursday, January 22 by

David Wallace gives Michael a new assignment – travel to a small family business called Prince Paper to gather intel on their numbers so that they can put them out of business.  He takes Dwight with him but once he gets there finds following through with his plan more difficult.  Oh yeah, and also the entire office has a vote on whether or not Hillary Swank is hot.   It’s all after the jump.

Thursday TV Preview

Thursday, January 22 by

Just your typical Thursday Night TV– a solid chunk of laughs with new episodes from The Office and 30 Rock. And hey, why not dial into TruTV as a fallback during the commercials? Where else are you going to find the best penile fractures and crack fueled attempts at outrunning a helicopter with a 1987 Buick LaSabre? With music by Benny Hill.

Miss March Trailer

Hollywood is spitting out these bromantic comedies/tail quests like nobody's business.  Here's another, from the comedy troupe 'The Whitest Kids You Know.'

Matlock And Tapioca Pudding Nominated For Oscars Links

Thursday, January 22 by

The big story of the day continues to be the massive FAIL on the part of the The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences regarding their Oscar nominations. I spend most of my day reading what I would like to think of as the opinions of younger, more in touch people. Mostly regarding movies, but sometimes regarding other stuff. These are the same sort of people that were massively influential in electing our new president, and who are way more adapted to the media environment that we're all living in. With that said, here are some of the fine works that represent this ascendent generation. Barack And Michelle Will Do What To Each Other? (Holy Taco) BIG NEWS FOR TWEENS! Dakota Fanning In New Moon? (Filmdrunk) Thelma and Louise. Only with 4 aging whores: Sex In The City 2 (WIMB) Seven Unintentionally Hilarious Movie Villains (Unrealitymag) Bill Hader To Cut People Into Tiny Pieces, Eat Them (Pajiba) Uwe Boll, Mike Myers Lead 'Official' 2008 Razzie Nominations (Playlist)

OSCAR NOMS ARE IN!

Thursday, January 22 by

This year's nominations are official. And there are a few categories with which I am taking immediate umbrage (throws down top hat, removes monocle) #1: The Wrestler should be nominated for Achievement in Costume Design. It took Mickey Rourke DECADES to weave that human suit out of growth hormone, horse steroids, hooker sweat, and amateur boxing matches.  #2. Springsteen's song for The Wrestler should have been nominated in the Original Song category. #3 The Reader does not deserve a nom for Best Picture. It's about a woman who can't read. We can not use America's preeminent award ceremony to promote illiteracy. #4. Benjamin Button was good, but not 13-noms-good. Check them out and have your say, Junkies.

Lost Premiere Recap: We have to go back.

Thursday, January 22 by

Okay, now that we’re all done releasing our three-minute long sighs of relief that the best drama on TV is back, it’s time to take a look at where our beloved islanders and mainlanders are nowadays. The islanders discover that they’ve somehow been unhinged from time and are bouncing around different times on the island, and Jack and Ben unite to recruit their old friends for a return visit to the island. Kate is also confronted with a choice to make about Aaron, and Hurley has to find a way to hide a dangerously tranquilized Sayid after they’re nearly shot down by assassins waiting in the gloom of Sayid’s room. It’s riveting, it’s fun, it’s a must watch, and it’s also right after the jump.

Wednesday Night TV Preview

Wednesday, January 21 by

If you've never seen Lost, then tonight is your night. The first hour attempts to recap everything that happened in the past four seasons, and then they proceeds to bombast you with a two hour premiere that will leave you stupeified and asking for more. Also check out FOX's new series Lie to Me starring Tim Roth as an expert in lie detection who helps the cops solve crimes. Would I be lying if I said I'm crapping my pants in anticipation for Lost? You be the judge.

Friday The 13th Movie Trailer

Wednesday, January 21 by

I've heard that the best part of this movie is when Martin Lawrence and Will Smith come riding in on giant robots and fight Jason while a flaming asteroid is plummeting toward earth and then, and then, and then (*catches breath*) Japan attacks everyone, including Ben Affleck and America wins. I really wish Michael Bay would direct horror movies instead of just produce them. BOOM.

13 Insanely Horrible Local TV Ads

Wednesday, January 21 by

Not every commercial can come from the typewriter of Darren Stevens or the desk of Don Draper. Here is a cluster of shoddily made local commercials. I urge you, DO NOT get up for a beer. Do not even get up to piss. Just sit back and enjoy these words from the sponsors.

Post Inauguration Hangover Links

Wednesday, January 21 by

There's this race in Portland, OR called the I-Tit-Arod where dudes have to go to every strip club in town and have a drink within 24 hours. There are something like 90 clubs. No one has ever finished the race. I hope there's a similar competition during the Inaugural Balls where young, brash Charlie-Wilson-esque state representatives have to stop at each party, chug a glass of scotch, sexually harass three Senate aids, and lobby for a new bridge in their home district. I'd call it the Inagarod. Now here's the links. A Shitty Day In The Life Of An Informmercial Actor (IAMBORED) The Music of Mark Gormley Is F'Ing Amazing (Gorilla Mask) ZOOEY WHATSERFACE IS CUTE (Filmdrunk) The Ten Greatest Lost WTF-isms (Unrealitymag) Because I Ain't Gonna See It: A Waltz With Bashir Review (Pajiba) Totally Not TV or Movie Related: Denise Milani Is Hot (Holytaco)
