Here’s what’s coming up this weekend:
Cowboys and Aliens: Daniel Craig has rocket-hands and he has to team up with Harrison Ford to fight aliens who abducted Olivia Wilde so they could probe her or something (these aliens don’t seem too bad).
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 44%
Uninformed Commentary: I intended to see this and write a review, but couldn’t find a showtime that worked for me. So I’ll leave you with these two quotes:
[A] phenomenally successful two-man war against narrative clarity and continuity.
– Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
Nothing very exciting happens.
– Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
Entourage is mercifully heading into its last seven episodes after eight seasons as television’s primary source of douche-related entertainment. Apparently, however, sticking around for four seasons after your product has gone stale isn’t enough for creator Doug Ellin, who is certain that there is a movie in the offing. Because you haven’t seen Turtle until you’ve seen him on the big screen. Read the rest of this entry
So apparently there’s a movie coming out based on the board game Battleship, which is about the stupidest idea ever. Apparently, the movie is about Navy dudes who fight aliens, which has nothing to do with the game, but I guess makes sense to the people who make movies. In any case, it has a trailer, because what the hell right? Trailer after the jump.
In many ways this a continuation of what I started at my old blog. In many ways this is a clean break. While calling national figures mean names anonymously over the internet was a great deal of fun, I’m no longer interested in writing about current events, mostly because the real world is a really depressing place. I am, however, still in love with writing, and shamelessly seeking the attention of my friends. In that vein, I’ve decided to re-try this blogging thing, focusing on fun stuff, like film, television, music, and sports. I’m aiming to put out 3-7 posts a day during the week and possibly a couple on weekends. My hope is that I can get a few people to guest post intermittently, and maybe bring a couple of other writers in on a regular basis. For now I’m just going to see where it goes and have some fun.
As usual, don’t expect anything resembling insight, access, or an ability to break any type of story. Do expect fart jokes (hey, I know my strengths), occasional wit, and likely a few groans.
Blogging begins in earnest tomorrow, when I hope to post a review of Cowboys and Aliens, which from the previews appears to be John Favreau’s rocket handiest movie to date.
