Entertainment Link-Off: It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

It’s Christmas Day!!! To all the Lowdown readers, I hope you’re enjoying the holidays! Despite having an ELO on Christmas Day, there aren’t too many Christmas related links. This will be the last Entertainment Link-Off before the new year, so I’ll see you again in 2011. Now kicking off this entry is Jessica Alba. Forget about the fact that she’s in that movie Little Fockers, go watch her in The Lonely Island’s latest music video instead.

After the jump, Community goes Avengers, some Tron related news, Edgar Wright picks out the 10 most underrated films of the year and a somewhat revamped version of the Star Wars Christmas Special. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Get Tangled Up

It’s Thanksgiving Weekend in the United States, so Happy Thanksgiving to those who are south of the border. At this time of the year, there are plenty of films hitting the screens trying to make money from the long weekend. There’s the revenge action flick Faster starring Dwayne Johnson. Then Christina Aguilera and Cher collaborate in Burlesque. Disney is offering its own family fare Tangled starring Zachary Levi and Mandy Moore. I was going to kick off the ELO with something related to this movie, but then I came across Olivia Wilde’s latest photoshoot with Details. Might as well go with that since Tron Legacy will be hitting the screens very soon.

After the jump, Stephen King makes his top 10 flicks of the year already, Christopher Nolan explains Inception without really explaining it, David Letterman likes to hit on Natalie Portman and let’s all become asses! I mean Agents of Secret Stuff! Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Greendale Rocks!

There aren’t any films opening this weekend that cracked the fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes this weekend. Oliver Stone’s follow-up to Wall Street is a quasi-bust, Zack Snyder’s Legend of the Guardians isn’t getting rave reviews despite funny visuals and You Again starring Kristen Bell is getting drubbed by critics. Perhaps it’s best that we all just stick with TV now that the fall season is in full session.

After the jump, George Lucas is sitting on a pile of cash because of us, a few tidbits on Community, Scott Pilgrim DVD release date, Abigail Breslin has some vocal chops and the alternate opening sequence to Iron Man 2! Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Dancing Around the Truth

Welcome to another edition of the Entertainment Link-Off. Kicking off this entry is Emma Stone, who plays the lead character Olive Penderghast in the new film Easy A. The comedy centres around a high school girl who fake lost her virginity. Given it is a high school, of course chaos will ensue. The film is actually a hit among the critics, so could it be a contender at this weekend’s box office? I certainly hope so.

After the jump, some awesome Voltron pics, The Social Network interactive trailer, the return of Johnny English, Kate Walsh channels her inner Gaga, Community takes on Modern Family (sort of) and an awesome Community remix. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Past, Present, Future

rachel mcadamsAfter a slight delay (again), this week’s edition of the Entertainment Link-Off is finally here! This weekend marks the release of the highly anticipated film adaptation of the novel The Time Traveler’s Wife, hence I’m using Rachel McAdams to kick off this entry. The film was scheduled to be released last fall, but thanks to Star Trek (which is a fantastic film by the way) requiring Eric Bana to shave his head for the role Nero, the reshoots for The Time Traveler’s Wife couldn’t take place until he grew his hair back. So how was the movie? Did it remain faithful to the novel? Find out later when I post the movie review. In the meantime, let’s take a look at the happenings in film, TV and whatnot.

After the jump some Time Traveler’s Wife stuff, notes about upcoming films, Megan Fox talks about peer pressure and we find out what G.I. Joes do during their free time. Continue reading

Headlining this article is BoA, who recently released the music video for her latest single ‘Energetic’ through Entertainment Weekly.
