There is enough Star Wars related stuff in the world to choke a Sarlacc. But if you are a mega-fan, like French professional illustrator Benjamin Carre, there’s always room for Jello. Check out this madness: (and FYI, the pic up top is done by artist Ken Kelly, one bad ass mo’fo) Read the rest of this entry »
Even though Spike’s annual “Scream Awards” won’t be tossed on the tube for another day (tuesday at 9pm to be exact), the maniacs over at Slashfilm.com were able to access the winners list, ninja style. Have yourself a look, after the jump of course. Read the rest of this entry »
Guess what Sony fanboys and girls, LittleBigPlanet has been pushed back a week. I know the news is a little late, considering this happened like Friday or Saturday, but I don’t post on the weekends; so deal with that. It’s been pushed back due to the fact that two of the tracks have verses from the Qur’an, and apparently may offend some people. All copies are being recalled, even though they were shipped to retailers like a week ago. If you’re on the verge of killing yourself based on this news, don’t do it. You can find copies of the game on eBay for a ludicrous $250 or so. New release date is Oct 27, and no later than Nov 3rd for Europe. I suggest playing Fable 2 or Dead Space to quell your urges.
The adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Road may be pushed back to a 2009 release date. From THR:
The Viggo Mortensen dark thriller “The Road,” a Dimension title from the Weinstein Co., originally was set for a Nov. 14 limited and Nov. 26 wide release. Now it quietly has been shifted until at least December — and might be moved out of 2008 altogether.
Execs are scheduled to meet with “Road’s” producers Thursday to discuss whether the movie will bow this year; the discussions come as Harvey Weinstein has pushed ahead with Stephen Daldry’s “The Reader” for a Dec. 10 opening.
Last year I read this entire book on a trip back from Bloomington, IL. It tore me a new one. It made me want to run to NJ and hug my old man…I found some more photos from the film, check them out after the jump.
The Aquarium L-13 gallery in London is now featuring Splatter, an art show touching on violence in cartoons. The work looks really playful and graphic and I hope they publish a book to accompany it since I can’t go (I’ve got shit to do). I’m a huge Looney Tunes fan, especially ACME products, and one of the pieces looks like Wile E. Coyote’s bunker. So amazing.
The ART + ACTION = OBAMA 08 group customs show began on October 17 at the Showroom in NYC. Toys R Evil posted several photos of the customs (we posted the Suckadelic custom last week). Politics make us vomit round here, but these are pretty awesome. Check the Ultraman! More photos available here.
MIla Kunis went on Jimmy Kimmel last week to promote Max Payne and ended up dropping some World of Warcraft knowledge. She refers to it as “the game” and states that she had to quit it a year ago. But the good news is Robin Williams still plays.
More like the Fraidy Bunch! On October 27, 1972, a decade before I was born, one of the greatest Halloween specials in television history aired. I’m a sucker for the BB. I grew up watching it on Nick at Night (which is now airing shows from my generation – we are getting old, folks!) and TBS. I wanted to be Peter and sleep with Marcia (she would only be my step sister). It was one of the most consistent sitcoms of all time so it’s a given that its Halloween special delivers. Filled with brother on sister, sister on brother, and brother/sister on housemaid crime, “Fright Night” (season 4, episode 6) is a classic of the series.
Due to a severe face melting on Saturday night, I have fallen a little behind on my horror themed reviews. So to make up for the day that was lost, you get a two-fister review, right in the love pump.
Much like the great Ohmars, I too was mentally ruined by a particular 80′s fright flick. His was Poltergeist, a film that did a raging number on my He-Man sheets as well, but that movie was nothing compared to the terror that still haunts me to this very damn day.
Sarah Palin was on SNL this past Saturday and rather than have her in a sketch, she was part of the mis en scene; sitting there, raising the roof (because that’s what black people do when they listen to music) while Amy Poehler rapped about her. Click here to watch the video. This was almost as painfully awkward as MC Rove.
If you’re any kind of palefacepublicspeaker, and you feel the need to “raise the roof,” “crip walk,” or “chicken noodle soup,” please just gargle Drano instead.
I’m under the impression, that the writers for DEXTER aren’t capable of making a bad episode. We’re only four episodes deep now and the show looks as if it will only get better. Read the rest of this entry »
