Entertainment Link-Off: Save the Best Piece for Last

It’s another flashback weekend in Hollywood! First off there’s James Cameron’s Titanic revisit. On the other end there’s the latest installment of the American Pie franchise with American Reunion.

Entertainment Link-Off: Mars Attack!

After spending decades in the works, John Carter has finally made it to the big screen this weekend. Sadly tracking has been a bit low and it looks like it will be a box office flop. It’s rather unfortunate since it is a solid film despite minor pacing issues and spotty dialogue at times. The visuals, the story and the acting can make up for whatever flaws the film has. Plus, there’s Lynn Collins in it! That should be a definite plus! (And c’mon, support your fellow Canadian Taylor “Riggins” Kitsch of FNL fame).

After the jump, Terra Nova got canned, The Simpsons tackles Game of Thrones, the return of Community is near, a bit more on John Carter and check out a faux trailer for Where’s Waldo. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Hug a Tree

It’s Saturday again, so it’s time for another edition of the Entertainment Link-Off. In theatres this weekend, there’s the kid friendly Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. On the other end of the spectrum, there’s the party-hard flick Project X. In other words, nothing noteworthy, so let’s start this edition of the ELO off with Charlize Theron. She’ll be appearing in Prometheus this summer and later in this entry, a new viral video related to the movie has hit the interwebs.

After the jump, The Lorax isn’t sticking to its environmentally friendly message, Adam Sandler smashed a Razzie record, the Oscars are on a downward spiral, showing a movie trailer can get you into the Phillippines (well only for Taylor Kitsch), Alec Baldwin shows no boundaries when hosting morning shows and new music recommendations courtesy of David Choi and Esther Lee!

After the jump, quite a few articles on the upcoming flick John Carter, MPAA got it wrong again, an alternate take on Ghost Rider, Star Wars porn is better than The Phantom Menace, Community returns, a bit more on Linsanity and new music from Far East Movement and Jason Chen. Continue reading
