Rob Lowe shocked the world yesterday when he announced that Peyton Manning was retiring from the NFL this year. Peyton Manning was amongst those shocked. As were his father and his agent.

The story has been essentially debunked and we’ve all returned to not caring what Rob Lowe has to say about the field of sports entertainment. Phew! That was a rough night. But it got us wondering, where is Rob Lowe getting his intel? What does he know that we don’t?

We’ve been keeping a close eye on his Twitter page to discover what else 2012 may hold in store. My theory is he’s a wizard from the future.

9 Movie and TV Candidates Better Than The GOP Field http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-movies-and-tv-candidates-better-than-the-gop-field/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-movies-and-tv-candidates-better-than-the-gop-field/#comments Tue, 03 Jan 2012 15:37:31 +0000 Nicholas Pell http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=241124 Suck my caucus.

It’s that time again. Vermin of all kind of descended upon the simple state of Iowa, shilling snake oil, false promises and thinly veiled bigotry. That’s right, it’s time for the Iowa Republican Caucuses. This year’s field is particularly awful, including Ron Paul’s strong white nationalist campaign, Mitt Romney’s magic undies, a frothy mix known as Rick Santorum and more ex-Gingrich wives than you can shake a stick at. Movies and television provide us with better candidates than this, which is why I’ll be sitting at home tonight (that, and the fact that I don’t live in Iowa). Here are just a few people I’d prefer to anyone in the current GOP field.

Ralph Wiggum – The Simpsons

Ah yes, Ralph Wiggum. The creepy child of Chief Clancy Wiggum. You might not remember the Springfield Primary skyrocketed young Master Wiggum to political center stage. On the strength of the important so-called “Yellow Primary,” Wiggum was able to secure the nomination of both major political parties. Still, we’ll never know what might have happened with Wiggum at the helm. His bipartisan style is still a model for those seeking to unite the country around a common program.

Greg Stilson – The Dead Zone

I’m most definitely not talking about the boring TV show with the nerd from The Breakfast Club. In fact, I’m going to go on record as saying that The Breakfast Club sucks and the presence of a cast member is a bad, bad sign. But, anyway, the original film The Dead Zone comes from a land of perfectness and awesome. David Cronenberg? Check. Christopher Walken? Check. Mostly faithful adaptation of a boss Stephen King novel? Check. Total downer of an ending? Check. Stilson was to be the president who presides over nuclear holocaust, so it’s pretty awesome that Johnny got him to use a kid as a human shield. Still, I’d prefer him to the current candidates.

Robert Redford – The Watchmen

In The Watchman comic, Robert Redford threw his hat in the ring against Richard Nixon in 1988. After five terms of Dick in office, America was ready for a change. It was that or the giant squid monster or whatever the hell that thing is at the end. Apparently some things never change and one of those things is America deciding it wants a cowboy actor running its affairs.

I spy irresponsible hyperbole.

NASA has released its list of the least plausible science fiction films ever made, and Roland Emmerich‘s 2012 landed at the panic-inducing top. The agency has received so many questions based on the ridiculous Mayan propaganda in the film that it was forced to create a website to calm everyone the eff down. The ironic part is the people who need to access it probably think the Internet is an identity stealin devil.

Here’s the list of the most dum-dum sci-fi movies of all time, according to NASA and the Science & Entertainment Exchange:

1. 2012 (2009)
2. The Core (2003)
3. Armageddon (1998)
4. Volcano (1997)
5. Chain Reaction (1996)
6. The 6th Day (2000)
7. What the #$*! Do We Know? (2004)

Turns out a volcano erupting in the middle of Los Angeles is more likely than a massive asteroid barreling toward earth. I work one block from the Tar Pits. Thanks for the nightmare fuel, NASA.

They also put out a list of the most plausible sci-fi films:

1. Gattaca (1997)
2. Contact (1997)
3. Metropolis (1927)
4 The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)
5. Woman in the Moon (1929)
6. The Thing from Another World (1951)
7. Jurassic Park (1993)

Ethan Hawk must be positively giddy. It also seems that if we’re invaded by aliens, they’ll all look like David Morse. (/Film)

Of course, if you watch cable news like I do, the end of the world certainly looks inevitable. Perhaps Mr. Emmerich will be taken more seriously when he's called a Documentarian.  At least that seems like a better title than "Prophet of Doom." Either way, he loves coming up with ways to destroy crap. But, in the interest of science, let's take a closer look at the potential ends of the world, as described by Nostradamus Roland Emmerich:   Today's Marquee Links"I'm On A Boat" Celebration (Video)

Roland Emmerich Is Afraid Of Muslims http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/roland-emmerich-is-afraid-of-muslims/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/roland-emmerich-is-afraid-of-muslims/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Throughout his film career, director Roland Emmerich has laid waste to several landmarks and institutions -- the White House (twice), the Pentagon, New York City, the Golden Gate Bridge, and John Cusack's credibility. In his new film 2012, he smashes and shakes historic sites across the globe to rubble. But we've finally found a building impervious to his computer-generated destruction. In an early draft of the script, Emmerich was planning to level the Kaaba, one of Islam's holiest sites. He pussied out when his cowriter mentioned that inclusion of the scene would more than likely lead to a fatwa on their heads (first of all, grow some balls and secondly, this movie had a writer?). Naturally the disaster-meister opted to eradicate the Vatican and a group of Buddhist monks instead. When asked whether he feared any kind of retaliation for the script change, Emmerich asked, "What are you gonna do about it, Buddhists? Huh? You gonna cry? Buddhists gonna cry? Huh? Huh? Huh?" (Cinema Blend)
