Hey there, weaklings – There’s a new power in town. One with the fury and rage of a thousand monsoons, and she will exude this power in David O. Russell movies and through the medium of comic book adaptations. She is Jennifer Lawrence, and she is not to be trifled with.

Forbes, a magazine that used to be the an industry standard for finance news, but now just tells us how much Adam Sandler sucks, is back at it again, listing J-Law as the most powerful women actress. IN THE UNIVERSE.

Their pseudo-scientific method includes her ability to juggle big box office fare like Hunger Games and X-Men with more cerebral stuff like Winter’s Bone and seemingly every David O. Russell movie.

It didn’t sound like that might of a victory. The runner-up? Sandra Bullock.

I wish we had a time machine so we could pit her against a 1960′s Lucille Ball or late 70′s Bette Midler. That would be a battle royale of powerful women right there!

Meet Colin Furze. Colin Furze is an excitable young man, and an inventor. Having taken a cue from sometimes-villain Magneto in Marvel’s X-Men saga, Colin has made himself a pair of magnetic boots that allow him to clumsily walk across his own ceiling without yet killing himself.

Take a look at what Colin’s done, then mock him, then realize that he has actually invented something that let’s you WALK ON CEILINGS. Then feel bad for having even thought about mocking him.

In two years, this guy will be lifting stadiums out of the ground.

Because the only thing better than a well-written, original film is taking existing franchises, and slamming them together like a child with too many toys and a Pixie Stick addiction, Fox is doing just that. The studio has reported that the project ISN’T happening, put trying to unring this bell is like trying to take piss out of a swimming pool.

The modern-day Medici’s that head the studio will jump all over an idea for X-Men people, of whom there are about 600, will clash or team up with the Fantastic Four, of whom there are between three and five, roughly.

It doesn’t matter what this film will be about, because it’s just going to be an Avengers knock-off between two lesser properties that have been mediocre for a decade or so.

And it will make a billion dollars, proving that movie execs are geniuses only because they continue to bet big on the refusal of audiences to embrace a new idea.

So I’ll go ahead and break the news on a sequel and spin-offs right here as well.

Now that the summer movie season has kicked off, The Wolverine doesn’t want to get lost in the shuffle. So, once again, we have a look at Hugh Jackman fighting a guy on top of a train without the use of his healing abilities. Turns out, getting stabbed in the butt hurts like a bitch. Now you know how it feels, Hugh Jackman.

Like the Bad News Bears and Big Bird before him, Wolverine has headed to Japan to get his groove back. Groove, in this sense, means mortality as Logan knows that Japan leads the world in immortality-removing sciences. That’s just the story on the surface. Really, it’s all just an excuse to see Wolverine fight ninjas.

“You know who would have been a great Wolverine? Glenn Danzig. The singer for Danzig.”

That quote wasn’t just uttered by your stoner friend at 11 PM on a Saturday night, but also (allegedly) by some studio exec, who must have been a stoner and probably said it on a Saturday night. Possibly while stoned.

Danzig, in an interview with LA Weekly, said he that he had been approached to play the X-Man, but passed on it. That’s pretty interesting, but not as interesting as his follow-up comment as to how he would have played the iconic comic book hero in X-Men.

“It wouldn’t have been as gay.”

Excuse me, I just got blasted in the face with a firehose of awesome. Is this going to sow the seeds for a Glenn Danzig-Hugh Jackman feud? I don’t think I’m jumping the gun when I say “absolutely.”

This whole post is a charade for me to post this:

Have a safe, solemn, and bitchin’ Memorial Day, readers.

In Honor Of Double-Vagina-ed Hazel, Here Are Our 7 Favorite Film Mutants http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/in-honor-of-double-vagina-ed-hazel-here-are-our-7-favorite-film-mutants/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/in-honor-of-double-vagina-ed-hazel-here-are-our-7-favorite-film-mutants/#comments Fri, 20 Jan 2012 21:49:37 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=242953 A mutation is defined as a genetic change or abnormality that makes a person really gross.

The post In Honor Of Double-Vagina-ed Hazel, Here Are Our 7 Favorite Film Mutants appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Over the past week, Hazel Jones has been popping up in the darndest places, and all because she’s a hot 23 year-old girl with two vaginas. To the naked eye, nothing seems awry, but she found later in her life that she was born with two uteruses (uteri?), cervixes, and vaginas. While this may sound wacky, some doctors guess that 1 in 3,000 women have the condition, which allows them to lose their virginity twice and experience two periods, so, you know, twice the fun and whatnot.

UPDATE: IT’S BEEN REPORTED…sorry. Caps lock was on…It’s been reported that Hazel has recently been offered $1 million to star in an adult film that will presumably feature both her vaginas. Hazel has shown off both her vaginas at sex clubs in the U.K., so taking up this offer isn’t outside the realm of possibility. Does this mean that the record for “most simultaneous penetrations” will be increased by one. Or two or three?

Only time will tell.

UPDATE II: If you want to see a medical video featuring the double vagina, you can do so on YouTube. Thanks to FilmDrunk for making the find.

Along with the presentation of her “gift” to the aforementioned fetish clubs and showing her double-barrel vagina to any woman who asks to see it, Jones recently posed, clothed, in Bizarre magazine, so she’s certainly owning this trait and not living in shame. So while you, dear reader, mull over the question of whether this makes her more or less appealing than a “regular” uni-vagged girl, please take a moment and review our list of the best mutants in film.

Three-Breasted Whore – Total Recall

Again, the extra breast thing is a matter of taste, but I can say that the third breast didn’t do much for me. That said, this list isn’t about me. Many, many Americans, and possibly Canadians, enjoy the tri-boobed hooker, so she makes the list. I find it a bit silly, as I never have thought to myself, “Gee, I wish this girl I was hooking up with had one more thing on her body I had to stimulate and negotiate. I’m not searching for degree-of-dificulty here. I would rather have a girl with nine tongues or a caterpillar clitoris or something that gave ME pleasure rather than yet another body part I need to focus on. Anyway, here’s your three-breasted whore. Enjoy.

Brundlefly – The Fly

Jeff Goldblum in mutated fly form is pretty much a lateral move from regular Jeff Goldblum, so I’m not phased at all by by the fact that he vomits on his food, or his ears fall off on the reg. It’s all good! I hope he doesn’t vomit on my hand, but there’s no need to single him out. I hope none of my friends vomit on my hand. That’s crappy behavior.

For those of you who can’t afford to pay first-class prices for your X-Men, help is on the way. Fox has given the go ahead for a sequel to last summer‘s mutant-filled prequel. And if my college education is worth a good god damn, it stands to reason that the only title that will make sense is X-Men: Second Class. Am I right?

In keeping with the second class theme, Simon Kinberg, the writer behind crap-tacular films such as X-Men: Last Stand and xXx: State of the Union has been tapped to write the script. That’s a lot of X’s.

But in all fairness, I probably should blame Kinberg for the way Last Stand turned out considering Brett Ratner was directing. Kinberg also penned the screenplay for Sherlock Holmes, which wasn’t a bad flick. So unlike myself as well as my immediate family, maybe there’s some hope left for this sequel. (Vulture)

Rebecca Romijn? She's in a Tyler Perry movie.

As Rebecca Romijn slithers her way forward in life, leaving the X-Men character behind her, such is the circle of life that another actress should cover herself in nothing but royal blue latex and a dream. It seems as the blue plastic suit binds them even today, as we have stories on both.

The former Mystique (Romijn) has decided to just fold her hand, give up on the game of life and star in the new Tyler Perry movie Good Deeds (the protagonist’s name is Glen Deeds, you see). It will also star Thandie Newton and Jamie Kennedy.  Synthesize that information however the hell you please. (Deadline)

Enough sad news about falling stars. Let’s talk about the new Mystique, Ms. Jennifer Lawrence (of Winter’s Bone and the upcoming Hunger Games). She looks…kinda silly. Like an especially awkward mutant. I half-expect to see braces when she smiles.

But, then again, Mystique always did. Let’s hope that Lawrence gets to flex her Oscar-nominated acting chops outside of the latex, otherwise it seems like a bit of a wasted opportunity for everyone involved in X-Men: First Class. (The Wrap)

Young and Old. Birth and death. X-Men and Tyler Perry movies.

Once again, the internationals get all the best stuff. Their dorm rooms must look so much cooler than ours. In this case, it’s these really sweet X-Men: First Class posters. Using patented “Quantum Leap” style mirror gags, the destinies of both Michael Fassbender‘s Magneto and James McAvoy‘s Professor X are revealed. If only they’d look down….

As you can see James McAvoy becomes bald and wheelchair-bound while Michael Fassbender gets a pretty sweet cape and helmet. And I think he can fly somewhat. Hey, but y’know, that wheelchair has some sweet rims. (FilmZ)
