House Recap: Here Kitty

Monday, March 16 by

This episode starts off with House in his office making a miniature racetrack. He races model cars on a track made out of medical supplies. Cuddy comes into the room and tells House he should have been helping patients, instead of making a racetrack. Cuddy introduces him to a new patient. After Cuddy leaves the room, the patient seizes and pees green urine. Thus begins another episode of House. House is with the team in his office writing on the ‘symptoms board’ in green pen. Taub is late and in a bad mood. He questions House’s decision to choose this patient. House punishes Taub for his disobedience. House orders the team to test the patient’s home for outside influences that would make her pee green.

WATCHMEN GAME GOES FULL FRONTAL

Monday, March 16 by

After noticing Watchmen's Box Office numbers slip 65% in its second weekend, we thought to ourselves, why aren't they marketing this film toward female retirees looking for some full frontal male nudity?  Because, man, there's enough blue penis in this movie to make Vanity Smurf come out of his tiny closet.Well, some folks over at Liquid Generation are helping keep the Watchmen buzz alive at the other end of the age spectrum, and figured that gamers like their penis 8 bits at a time.  Check out this Kung Fu-inspired scrolling actioner featuring a monster… ahem… swordfight… after the jump. 

MACGYVER TO BE FEATURE FILM?

Monday, March 16 by

The Hollywood Reporter breaks the news that TV's MacGyver will be getting the big screen treatment through Raffaella Productions, run by Raffaella De Laurentiis, daughter of Dino De Laurentiis.  Dino will executive produce.  Now, everyone knows that MacGyver is the world's most ingenious adventurer.  He can take a rubber band, a watch and a graphite pencil and make a low-grade bomb to break through a prison wall.  He can use a bowl, a spoon and a can of Campbell's Chunky Soup to overthrow a South American dictator.  You try to do that, Donovan McNabb's mom!Ultimately, though, it's the Mullet that makes the MacGyver.  And we at Screen Junkies thought we could help drastically in the De Laurentiis clan's quest to cast the big screen MacGyver by putting several leading men through what we like to call: The MacMullet Test.See our contenders after the jump and vote for your favorite in the comments section (or feel free to suggest others).  The De Laurentiis family – and MacGyver: The Movie – need your help!

Terminator TSCC Recap: Today is the Day

Monday, March 16 by

John copes with the loss of his girlfriend while those close to him point fingers at his suspicious cyborg. Sound AdviceJessie sits pondering in an easy chair with Riley’s corpse on the floor beside her.  A flashback occupies her mind.  In it, Derek is explaining to Jessie that he is going on a mission.  He warns her to always aim for the chip (when executing Terminators), kisses her and tells her he’ll see her later.  The flashback ends. After a moment, Jessie stands and zips up the plastic body bag covering John Connor’s late girlfriend.  Sarah is packing things into boxes when John walks in.  It’s pretty clear what’s going on–they’re moving again–so John offers to take care of the garage.  He finds Cameron there, mulling over robot parts.  Afraid of what his mother might do if she finds them, John tells Cameron to bury them so they can be incinerated later. Bad News

MORNING NEWS ROUNDUP

Monday, March 16 by

This morning I woke up to discover that character actor Ron Silver had died of cancer at age 62.  Silver is probably best known for his work in dramas like The West Wing, Chicago Hope and as the villain in Timecop.  But he also made one of the funniest self-deprecating turns in unaired TV show history when he played the villain – and himself – in the Ben Stiller-created, Jack Black-starring Heat Vision Jack.  See the clip after the jump. And now, the rest of the news… Sam Raimi Talks Remakes & Evil Dead 4! (IGN) Awesome Concept Art from The Goon (/Film) ex-NFL'er Michael Strahan to Follow in OJ Simpson's Path – minus the murder part. (Variety) Thoughts on SXSW screening of Bruno.  Vassup! (AICN) Exclusive I Love You, Man Clip (ComingSoon.Net)

BSG Recap: Daybreak, Part 1

Sunday, March 15 by

It’s right there in the title:  “Part 1.”  Of course this was going to be all setup for next week’s final confrontation, so, knowing that was our expectation, Ron Moore went on a bit of different route.  Here’s the thing: it doesn’t necessarily take an apocalypse caused by Sexy Killer Robots to make life totally suck.  Life can do that all on its own, as we shall see.Edward James Olmos gets to do the previouslies, which are:    •    Starbuck found her own dead body on Earth, which sucks, and after making the mistake, or “mistake,” of confessing her deadness to Gaius Baltar, he outs her.    •    Samuel T. Anders gets a bullet to the brain, and Starbuck, having been given the transcription to “All Along the Watchtow–  Is anybody paying attention?  Is there anybody who is watching this last batch of episodes who is a NEW viewer of Battlestar Galactica?  Because DO NOT start here. Start with the mini-series, for frak’s sake. Sheesh! 

FAST & FURIOUS 5: EUROPE?

Friday, March 13 by

Earlier today, Screen Junkies attended the Fast & Furious junket in Hollywood.  We had a chance to sit down at a roundtable Q&A with most of the principal cast, including Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Paul Walker and Vin Diesel, as well as director Justin Lin.  Probably the juiciest tidbit of information that came out of the sit-down was the hint of where the series might go – literally – should Universal decide to manufacture an even newer model.First up was Paul Walker, who seemed laid back and comfortable to answer everything thrown at him as candidly as possible.  When asked if he was already contracted out for another installment, Walker responded:"No but I've heard it. I've heard it in the rumor mill.  Like, I've spoken with executives at Universal at this point, and they're pretty serious about it.  They know where they want it to take place. They want to do it in Europe."

REVIEW: The Last House on the Left

Friday, March 13 by

What would you do if bad people raped and left your daughter for dead?  So spouts the basic message of the trailer for The Last House on the Left, and apparently, from the few clips shown, the answer is to kill them in as cinematically gruesome ways as possible (if it’s funny, that’s a plus).  Wes Craven’s original back in 1972 answered this question by showing us what completely disturbed, depraved, and downright terrifying places a human could go if pushed hard enough.  This remake misses the point – most of the killings wind up feeling like those clichés designed only to make you laugh and maybe cringe a little, but hardly ever scare you, and certainly not disturb you.  This much-hyped remake is something of a dud, and you can check out exactly why after the jump.
