Happy Memorial Day!

I just want to wish everyone, especially our men and women in the armed forces – those who have passed and those who still serve, a very joyous Memorial Day. I thought about posting a picture of a big ass aircraft carrier, because that always makes me feel patriotic, but instead I thought I’d leave you with this lovely image. Happy Monday.

Tom Cruise Likes Robert Pattinson’s Dirty Hair

Earlier in the week we had Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) dissing Justin Bieber’s noisy chip eating in a 2010 MTV Movie Awards promo, and today we have Tom Cruise revisiting his Tropic Thunder character, Lex Grossman, and giving Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga) the third-degree over his scruffy appearance. If this is a prelude to the kind of spoofs we’ll see during the actual June 6 awards telecast, I might be changing my tune and not just watch for

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Movie Review (B-)

With the combined might of uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer, Jake Gyllenhall’s rockin’ abs and respected director Mike Newell (Donnie Brasco, Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire), Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time hits Memorial Day weekend with a big question mark: will this video-game based movie finally pass over the threshold of wretched to mediocre and inspire a franchise in vein of Pirates of the Caribbean? I’ll always argue a movie’s success should be based on its merits as

The Hurt Locker Meets Justin Beiber

Thanks to an incessant parade of celebrity shilling, meaningless awardery and bottom-barrel joke muckraking, I’ve made it a point to miss the MTV movie awards over the last few years. And while the award show made by the Hollywood Marketers Alliance is still a big shill, this clip kind of tilted me the other way, thanks mostly to the awesomeness of The Hurt Locker, the subtle self-effacing of Jeremy Renner and the smooth charm of Aziz Ansari. Then again, there’s

Trailer Tuesday: Predators

I have routinely crapped on 2010’s line-up of summer movies, but Predators is one I have high hopes for. Alas, I also had high hopes for MacGruber and that movie was nothing short of absolute garbage. Probably one of the least funny “comedies” I’ve ever seen. Ever. Personally, not to be Debbie Downer, but I think we’re going to see much more disappointment before the summer’s over. Anyway, check out the trailer below for Predators and let me know if

Shrek Forever After Movie Review (C+)

Shrek and Shrek 2 can easily be referred to as animated classics and have, like nearly every feature film in the Pixar canon, set the standard for tone and design in computer-animated movies for the last decade. Using irreverence as fuel – almost making concerted efforts to be the anti-Disney, and buoyed by an eclectic list of effective voice talent, the first two Shrek films were able to appeal to adults and kids with its fairytale mix of sweet and

A-Team Clips a Predator

A-Teeeeeeeeeeaaaaaam! I may have some 80’s nostalgia tied to this one, but A-Team is one of the few summer movies I’m looking forward to. Refreshing, none-too-serious and over the top fun is always welcome– even if the green screen effects are a little… obvious. More The A-Team Videos

Francis Ford Coppola’s Beard Also Hates 3D

I hate 3D. Dan hates 3D. Roger Ebert hates 3D. Francis Ford Coppola hates 3D, and now, in a show of solidarity, Francis Ford Coppola’s beard hates 3D. You hear that Hollywood?! Keep your damn 3D glasses! This ain’t the 1950s! Well, unless you count the culture of fear spread like putrid mayonnaise across the minds of Americans by the TV and radio political pundits and the government…but that’s another story! Long live Planet Beardatron!
