Entertainment Link-Off: All Fired Up

This weekend at the box office, it’s horror flick Final Desination 5 facing off against action/comedy 30 Minutes or Less. Neither film is likely to beat out those apes for the first place spot though. Anyway, leading this off is one of the cast members of Final Desination 5, Emma Bell.

After the jump, a few trailers to start things off, reading spoilers will make you appreciation things more, movie cliches illustrated, Conan O’Brien challenges Jesse Eisenberg to see who’s more self-depreciating and some music friendly videos to wrap things up. Continue reading


Entertainment Link-Off: More Than Meets the Eye

I’m back! After spending a month being buried by books, I’m here again to post a weekly edition of the Entertainment Link-Off. Huge thanks to Steve for covering for me during the month of June. Normally I would kick off the entry with someone involved with a big movie release but given that I’m not a huge fan of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, I think I’ll start off with someone that won’t be in the latest Transformers film. All three wide releases this week are critically panned, so there’s nothing really noteworthy, but apparently Katie Cassidy can be seen in some film called Monte Carlo, so here she is.

After the jump, some Transformers related links, a Sucker Punch drinking game, a nifty short film on plot devices, a Pixar-like take on The Rocketeer, a few movie trailers (including one mash-up) and Clara C’s new music video! Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Let’s Be Facebook Friends!

It’s that time of the week for another installment of the Entertainment Link-Off. Two highly anticipated movies are released this weekend at the theatres, so it would be a good opportunity for a quasi-movie marathon don’t you think? First up is the vampire flick Let Me In. Then there’s also the unofficial Facebook movie The Social Network starring Jesse Eisenberg as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. The movie also features Rooney Mara playing Zuckerberg’s ex-girlfriend during his days at Harvard.

While we’re on the topic of Facebook. Don’t forget to like us on our Lowdown Facebook page!

After the jump, an awesome music recommendation, a few articles on The Social Network, Tron Legacy reshoots aren’t exactly a bad thing, alien-related movies galore and there’s a Scott Pilgrim related connection at Wong Fu Productions. Continue reading
