Uh oh. I’ve drawn in on the entertainment beat for Jackie. We’re all in trouble now. To make up for my interpretation of an entertainment linkdump, here’s Angela Sarafyan who stars in A Good Old Fashioned Orgy which debuts this weekend.
Writer/blogger extraordinaire Drew Magary (who is regularly linked in my linkdumps) gives his take on movie star and director clichés and how they’re always trying to seem higher brow than they actually are. (The Projector)
After the jump, the summers biggest flops, Mr. Kim Kardashian meets the man who made her famous and Captain Planet is back, bitches.
This summer really hasn’t had a breakout movie hit… Or I missed it if there was. Anyway, here are the summer’s ten underachieving movies of the summer. (Yahoo Movies)
One of this summer’s flops was Green Lantern. But why did it crash and burn when Iron Man was the smash hit of 2008? (io9)

The new Mr. Kardashian, NBA player Kris Humphries, met Ray J on an airplane and pretended not to know who he was. Let’s face it, if it wasn’t for Ray J, we wouldn’t know who Kim Kardashian is. (The Big Lead)
Apparently Americans aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer. Thanks to marketing ploys for the new movie Apollo 18, NASA has been forced to release a statement saying that there was no Apollo 18 mission and that the movie is pure fiction. It’s sad that it came to that. (LA Times)
Looking for some movies to watch this weekend? Here are nine work-related movies that would be appropriate viewing for Labour Day weekend. (Screen Junkies)
Or is TV more your thing? Then you might want to check out some of this weekend’s TV marathons. (TVLine)
Speaking of movies and the like, here a look at five depraved sex acts that were implied in the Harry Potter series. That Rowling had a dirty mind. (Cracked)
Captain Planet is back to save the planet. And he’s willing to lay down the law to save the Earth. The power is his, bitches.
