X-Men Origins: Wolverine Trailer 1

Monday, December 15 by

Anyone who saw The Day The Earth Stood Still this weekend caught this trailer. I thought that every single episode of the X-Men series was dope. I know X-3 has it's detractors. But I am not one of them. Sign me up for this one.

President To Face Monster Demon Attack

Monday, December 15 by

Every once in a while you see a real news report that looks like it's explaining a scene from a movie. I always thought it would be awesome to devote an entire night of news to covering the carnage that occurs in one film. Live Free or Die Hard would be a good one. It would take five full hours of uninterrupted coverage to detail the destroyed buildings, cabs launched into helicopters, and dead bystanders.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, JLH has been busy. Among other projects, her newly bolstered production company has  been developing the Untitled Odessa Project, a movie for Lifetime based on a Texas Monthly article titled She Had Brains, a Body, and the Ability to Make Men Love Her.

REVIEW 2: The Day The Earth Stood Still

Sunday, December 14 by

(Editors Note: Sometime's two people from the massive staff of Screenjunkies review the same movie, and the best review wins. This is one of those occassions. Here's Thomas Anderson's. Max Power's review can be found here.) I have a confession to make: I’m a sucker for any good old fashioned sci-fi trip, even if said sci-fi trip involves some overused clichés and a plot that doesn’t entirely make sense.  These flaws can be forgiven if the rest of the show gives enough thrills, special-events driven destruction, and Keanu Reeves. 

REVIEW: The Day The Earth Stood Still

Saturday, December 13 by

I was listening to an episode of This American Life where they break down step-by-step what has happened in the financial markets over the past few months that has made hoards of analysts and traders literally shit their pants. Check it out, it’s mind blowing. The idea that our markets would just freeze up and stop working is something that trusted names in economics are saying is a reality.  The consequences would be disastrous. Companies would stop making stuff. Millions of people would lose their jobs.  Industrial food production would grind to a halt. We could potentially see a mini-apocalypse as chaos spread around the globe.  And what brought on end of days? Terrorists? Nuclear mutual annihilation? Plague? Nope: friggin home loans.

Good Trailer

Friday, December 12 by

This trailer has a totally awesome part at the 30 second mark where the main character says "Hitler is a Jerk. He'll never last." And then clinks giant beer mugs with his friend. Do we really need another movie about the moral dilemma of joining vs. not joining the Nazi Party in pre-war Europe?

Legendary Betty Page Dies

Friday, December 12 by

Legendary pin-up model Betty Page died today at age of 85 from complications of a recent heart attack.  If you're like me you're pretty shocked by the news that Betty Page was still alive.

Meredith Is On Fire (Literally)

Friday, December 12 by

Phyllis shows a devilish side of herself we haven't seen before – she's holding her knowledge of Dwight and Angela’s torrid affair over the former party planning committee’s head in order to boss her around and plan her own parties, while Meredith’s hair catches on fire in the conference room and Dwight runs a lucrative black market from his desk on the hot toy of the season.

EW’s Ten Best Unproduced Scripts in Hollywood?

Thursday, December 11 by

EW's list of supposed hot scripts dropped yesterday. Number 9 is I'm With Cancer, written by Will Reiser. Will is a friend, so I've read the script numerous times, and I can confidently say that EW's description of the project as "The 40 Year Old Virgin with Chemo is total bullshit." It's WAY better than that.

The Predator Rap

Thursday, December 11 by

From HOLY TACO. America needs more raps by British dudes about awesome movies from the 80's. Finally, someone has stepped up. I want to see Robocop narrated in rhymes ASAP. 

Will Ferrell Takes Bush Impersonation to HBO

Thursday, December 11 by

I really don't like live theatre. It rubs me the wrong way. It could be that I just haven't seen enough good plays. It might be because I've spent time around so many actors that defend theatre while they give each other HJ's and say how brilliant they were in their last performance. I will, however, be watching when HBO airs this special presentation of Will Ferrell's Broadway show "You're Welcome America. A Final Night With George W. Bush." No word yet on the date. But of course, we will let you know. Here's some morning news. HBO to air Will Ferrell's Bush show (Comingsoon)First look at a terminator factory (Empire) SAG could strike by end of January (Variety) Seagal, the tax paying vampire slayer (CHUD) Stiller goes green (Joblo) Oliver Stone to make Chavez doc (Variety)
