Entertainment Link-Off: Bad Weekend

Sadly, this is my last entertainment linkdump for a while. I guess you’ll just have to make up for my indefinite absence with Alison Haislip. No, she’s not starring in anything this weekend but she’s on G4 which is good enough a reason. After all, the movies this weekend are Bad Teacher and Cars 2 which I’ve read aren’t worth the time of day.

The Killing season finale was bad but I might be the only person on earth who doesn’t think it was the worst finale of all-time. Bill Simmons is one of those folks saying it sucked and isn’t afraid to say it. (Grantland)

After the jump, Megan Fox fail, Star Wars win and the worst movies of the summer.

It looks like Michael Bay wasn’t too offended by Megan Fox calling him Hitler. Steven Spielberg on the other hand… (Daily Telegraph)

Speaking of Megan Fox, remember when she was supposed to be cast as Wonder Woman. Well, it looks like she might lose that job to Christina Hendricks. (Gamma Squad) As an aside, I’m finally watching Firefly and saw her episode. She’s not a bad actress.

Rumours are flying that there’s going to be a sequel to Hot Wet American Summer. Why is this movie important enough to get a sequel over 10 years after it came out. It launched the careers of Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Christopher Meloni, Paul Rudd, Judah Friedlander and more. (Vulture)

As we all know, Regis is retiring soon. But who is likely to replace him? Unfortunately for us, it might be a worst case scenario. (Business Insider)

Why isn’t Donald Trump running for President of the United States. It has nothing to do with skeletons in his closet or the fact that he’s not qualified. It’s because he’s going to make 162 times more hosting The Celebrity Apprentice than he would as POTUS. (New York Post)

That brings me to the topic of bad television. Well, this link isn’t about bad shows as much as bad choices of shows. Here are some of the worst choices for best show on TV. (Warming Glow)

And back to movies and bad movies in specific. Here’s a look at the worst movies of the summer of 2011. (Ask Men)

Time Magazine did a list of the worst fictional fathers for Father’s Day. Darth Vader was third on the list. The Death Star’s Public Relations department was asked to forego the giant superlaser rebuttal for a sternly worded letter rebuttal instead. (Death Star PR)

And speaking of Darth Vader, his son is starring in a new film coming out this summer. Boy it looks shit. (The Guardian)

From the “what the fuck” files, a 51-year-old actor married a 16-year-old aspiring country singer who needed her parents to sign the marriage license. Now if that isn’t true love, I don’t know what is. (Yahoo OMG)

Speaking of WTF, the latest strange food craze sweeping the nation is deep-fried Kool-Aid. Oh yeah! (Toronto Star)

It’s gallery/list time. First up, it’s the 25 worst celebrity tweets of all-time. Amazingly, not one of those tweets includes #Winning. I’m shocked given the @CharlieSheen hatred earlier this spring. (Uproxx)

Since we’re in a bit of a Star Wars mood today, here are 24 pieces of Star Wars origami. (Ned Hardy)

Here’s a list of the ten worst video game movies of all-time. (Calm Down Tom) Two things though: 1) I can’t believe they could convince themselves to limit the list to only ten; and 2) DOA shouldn’t have been on the list if only because of my unrequited crush on Sarah Carter.

Before the YouTuberry, a video we can’t embed. It’s a look at Twin Peaks’ Double R Diner which is actually located in North Bend, Washington. (The AV Club)

Since I refuse to dedicate more than 30 seconds of my time writing about it, here’s the trailer for the Footloose remake. It looks craptacular.
