Once again, my intrepid journalistic skills (fishing through White House garbage bins) bring you the exclusive scoop:
On a side note, I recently saw W.
and it is brilliant. Oliver Stone realized that the only way to effectively capture the aimless, idiotic Bush administration on film was to make an aimless, idiotic movie.… Continue

Listen up guys. Apparently Dane Cook
is still making movies. This is a big problem.
Now, I considered writing a strongly worded letter to Mr. Cook beseeching him to stop, you know, performing ever again. But then I realized an arrogant asshole like Dane Cook probably only reads things from his adoring fans. In lieu of this, it was time to get passive aggressive

If you ask me, this is the last
movie I'd choose to make a book out of, but it seems Seltzer/Friedberg are at it again. They've commissioned an author to adapt their screenplay, and I've got some exclusive excerpts for you guys. Enjoy.…

There are a lot of rumors circulating about why the film release of Half-Blood Prince
was delayed. The truth is, it has nothing to do with business concerns or uneasiness over Daniel Radcliffe’s other projects
Rather, my confidential source tells me that the extra time is being used to update the film. Director David Yates will be accommodating some recent changes that J.K. Rowling has made to the Potter universe since the release of… Continue

Air-conditioned, comfortable, and filled with popcorn, movie theaters have always been a worthy stoner destination. In fact, it should be no surprise to some of you that certain movies can be a lot of fun to watch while high (an appropriate way to let me know if you’re one of these people is to spam the comments with “420 w33d 4 life!!1”).
I could wax poetically about this subject forever, so this list is far from exhaustive. Nonetheless, I hope you’ll find a good mix of old standbys… Continue

A stylized interpretation of Gotham, far from Nolan's vision.
In the late 80s, Tim Burton
met with legendary comics author Alan Moore
to discuss his upcoming Batman movie. Moore had only one piece of advice: "Get Gotham City right."
Looking back at the 1989… Continue

When people talk of a “development hell,” I’m pretty sure they’re envisioning the ninth circle as a private party for the Watchmen

Is this the new classroom? Sort of...
Pop culture is getting smarter, and so are you. Bear with me for a bit, because I know how crazy that sounds.
Conventional wisdom suggests that television and movies are becoming mired in a cesspool of sex, violence, and absolute idiocy: a perfect storm of lowest-common-denominator entertainment guaranteed only to make you dumber. But do franchise reboots… Continue

The picture above captures the awesome that is Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog
. Joss Whedon's pet project during the writers' strike, Dr. Horrible
is a 40-or-so-minute three act musical following aspiring supervillain, Dr. Horrible. It was released exclusively through internet distribution, and although it's been available for a while, I checked it out last night for the first time. The verdict?… Continue

Let’s face it, you could do a whole lot worse than bats.
Turkeys are widely known for their unparalleled stupidity, inability to fly, and high meat-to-guilt ratio, a measurement that pits the deliciousness of an animal’s meat against how adorable it looks while dying. In fact, Turkeys are one of the few animals that actually decrease in pathetic-ness when you kill them, their lifeless bodies… Continue

I’ve seen a lot of talk recently about which Batman villains wouldn’t work, under any circumstances, in a Christopher Nolan film. I think the far cooler question is: how might some classic Batman villains turn out if that’s just where they happened to show up?
I decided to take a look at four of Batman’s most iconic villains. Though they’ve all appeared in a Batman film before, I’m pretty sure this is the first time that they’ve been “Nolan-ified,”
taking a swing at what a… Continue

Christopher Nolan has brought the Joker into the twenty-first century, making him dark, gritty, and psychologically complex. But come on, this is 2008, and just like everyone else you know the modern Joker would be going online. What better way to find victims than through the magic of the internet?
