Parks and Recreation Recap: Canvassing

Friday, April 17 by

The episode opens similar to the last one, with Leslie (Amy Poehler) in a sunny park with children, being a moron. Maybe cold opens in the park will be a weekly feature. Either way, she’s dressed as a bunny (slightly creepy) and participating in an Easter egg hunt with the children of Pawnee. She remarks that it seems very difficult to find the eggs, at which point Tom (Aziz Ansari) confesses to the camera in an interview that he forgot to hide the eggs, while a montage runs of children becoming increasingly upset, crying, throwing down their baskets, etc. All in all, not a bad Easter for Pawnee.After the opening, Leslie goes to visit her mother, a higher-up in the local government, whom she has a slightly unhealthy amount of respect for (she compares her to Mother Teresa), and sets up a dubiously addressed subplot of vying for her mother’s approval and affection, but to no avail (probably due in no small part to her wide-eyed incompetence). She tries to brag about her subcommittee, and is met with apathy on the subject from her mother, before heading off to a small meeting with Mark and Ann (Rashida Jones).

Friday Porning News

Friday, April 17 by

There is a misconception that porn actors don't get to flex their muscles or show their chops in the traditional sense. I disagree. It takes a certain amount of talent and self-awareness to appear in a porn parody of a popular television show. These are always hysterical. Though I draw the line at Everybody Trains Raymond and anything Mr. Ed related.5 Pornos Based On Beloved Sitcoms (Huffington Post)Crank 2, the tweets are in. (/film)Tron Guy weighs in. (io9) Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince trailer. (Apple) Stephen Dorff to appear in non-video game based film. (Cinematical) Terminator Salvation pics. (Latino Review)

Thursday, April 16 by

Tomorrow night, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim are debuting "G.I. JOE: RESOLUTE," a hard boiled reenvisioning of the G.I. JOE we know and love (unless you're a He-Man guy like me).  The micro-series is directed by Joaquim dos Santos (Justice League Unlimited, Avatar: The Last Airbender), and is written by Warren Ellis, of the Transmetropolitan, Planetary and Global Frequency comic book series (amongst a ton of others).   According to Ellis, via his website, "It’s an hour long, broken into ten 5-minute episodes and one 10-minute final episode."  The first episode will air Friday 4/17 during Adult Swim, with new episodes running every weekday and the finale airing on April 25th.  You can check out the promo for it after the jump, along with every G.I. Joe-themed Robot Chicken sketch ever made.

NEW TRAILER FOR ‘ARMORED’ WITH MATT DILLON, FISHBURNE, RENO, AND SKEET SKEET SKEET SKEET SKEET SKEET

Thursday, April 16 by

Armored, the new film from Nimród Antal (Vacancy) has a trailer out, and with it comes a lot of hardcore explosions and gunfire and ambiguously homoerotic camaraderie that I'm sure are all very in tune with the lives of real Armored Transport Officers.  In other words, I'm there opening night. According to the filmmakers, the movie is about "a crew of officers at an armored transport security firm that risk their lives when they embark on the ultimate heist….against their own company. Armed with a seemingly fool-proof plan, the men plan on making off with a fortune with harm to none. But when an unexpected witness interferes, the plan quickly unravels and all bets are off." Someone should have told Matt Dillon.  Check out the trailer and some extra still images from it after the jump.

ACHTUNG! BRÜNO LOVES DAS KAMERA!

With the much anticipated BRÜNO coming out this summer (July 10th to be exact – MARK IT!!!) we thought we'd tease you with a few more photos from some of BRÜNO's personal, private collection.  Ogle the rest after the jump.

CRANK 2′S AMY SMART HAS A STRANGE CONCEPT OF BIKINI TOPS

Thursday, April 16 by

Tomorrow, Crank: High Voltage opens in theaters, and Jason Statham's Chev Chelios will reunite with Eve, played by Amy Smart. No word on whether or not she'll reprise her gratuitously open-air sex scene from the first film, but the pasties above are more amenable to our tastes than the image of Statham grinding on Amy like a pirate on shore leave.Where else you can Get Smart:  Amy had a bit part in Starship Troopers, did a short stint on 'Scrubs,' played opposite Ashton Kutcher in The Butterfly Effect, played Holly, one of the love interests in the Starsky & Hutch remake, and more recently can be seen screaming in Mirrors.  She also has repeatedly voiced Strawberry Shortcake on 'Robot Chicken.'  Pointless Quote: "As a kid, I loved being surrounded by mountains, creeks and animals.  Check out the photos of Amy as nature intended after the jump.

KIDS’ LETTERS TO MICHAEL BAY

Thursday, April 16 by

For many movie lovers out there, Michael Bay is like the Santa Claus of summer.  We wait 12 months and then BOOM, Bay arrives with a sack full of goodies, heading back to his factory where the ILM elves toil to make the following year's gifts even more bombastic than the last. We at Screenjunkies have a very special "in" with Mr. Bay, as we help manage his Twitter account.  So, naturally, people contact us all the time to reach him via email, letters, bouquets of explosives, etc.  What follows are letters written to Michael Bay from some very special children, and we felt that they should be shared.Click on each image to enlarge. Sam Huntington – Age 9 – Orlando, Florida  Steven Blomquist – Age 8 – Aurora, Illinois

Variety reports that Turkish satellite broadcaster ATV plans to create their own version of The Golden Girls starring an entirely Turkish cast. The show will center around four older women living together, helping one another, and thanking one another for being a friend. If it's any bit as awesome as Turkish Rambo then I'm moving to Turkey immediately. I'll send for my things. Watch that phenomenal trailer below. Will Ferrell to go feral on Man vs. Wild.

Scrubs Recap: My Soul on Fire Part 2

Wednesday, April 15 by

Last week’s friction comes to climax with our favorite doctors, while the guy who cleans up after them gets hitched. Yup, She’s Still PissedKelso gets himself set up at the bar by handing the bartender his travel bag and ordering a Bahama-mama.  He’ll be at this bar for most of the episode.  Things are still heated amongst lovers from last week’s episode, and not in a good way.  Elliot is pissed at J.D. for not telling her how much he loves her, Jordan is pissed at Cox for pretending to have had work to do in order to prove to her she’ll miss him, and Turk is mad at Carla for refusing to take a break from her role as mommy. Sea Creatures

WATCH SASHA GREY IN ‘THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE’ TRAILER

Wednesday, April 15 by

The trailer for Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience starring adult film actress Sasha Grey has just debuted on Hulu.  The trailer has no dialogue – just a drum track and some title cards.  But it tells you everything you need to know about the film, which looks like a lo-fi, down n' dirty little gem (is that an oxymoron?  I don't care) from the man who brought us Sex, Lies & Videotape. Check it out after the jump. 

IF SPIELBERG & BAY STARRED IN A SITCOM, THIS WOULD BE THE PROMO STILL.

Wednesday, April 15 by

This Fall, STEVEN SPIELBERG & MICHAEL BAY are teaming up to take on the criminal underworld… one take at a time.  It's obvious from the photo that Spielberg is the brains behind the operation and Bay is the muscle.  You can tell from Spielberg's glasses, wisened mien and argyle sweater, plus Bay's wavy hair and leather jacket.[Image courtesy of the oft-brilliant and never boring Film Drunk]Spielberg Screens Transformers With Michael Bay (FilmDrunk)Hilarious Banned Sprite Commercial (Manofest)Parks And Recreation Disappoints (Pajiba)Jennifer Anders' Is Spankin Hot (GorillaMask)Kid Spikes Teachers Coffee (IAmBored)10 Cool Sci-Fi Stories about the Titanic (io9)11 Practical Zombie Strategies (Cracked)The Ugly Truth Posters (Filmofilia)Stills From Wrong Turn 3 (DreadCentral)Chillin With Somali Pirates (Holytaco)Teleprompter Readers Are Hot (BustedCoverage)Dana Allen Leads Todays Hotness (Uncoached)Miramax Uses Twitter Now (Unreality)Chris Cunningham Back At It (ThePlayList)Take My Dog, Eric (TomOatmeal)Cute Couples Moment Destroyed (NothingToxic)
