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: Untitled ELO of the Week

I’m back from my one week hiatus but it won’t be for long as I’ll be away for another two weeks afterwards. Thankfully Steve is around to cover for me. Anyway, it’s the weekend before Valentine’s Day, but I’m short on love related stuff (though Olivia Wilde is now officially single much to fanboys delight). Anyway, kicking off this ELO is Emily Blunt. You won’t physically see her in theatres this weekend but you’ll hear her voice in the new animated film Gnomeo and Juliet.

After the jump, a Transformer displays his singing chops, Steven Segal thinks he invented the front kick, MPAA fail, a tour of Pixar Studios and a better remixed version of the Captain America Super Bowl spot. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Total Eclipse of the Heart

Kicking off this entry is something from Jessica Alba’s latest photoshoot for Total Film. I haven’t heard much about her lately, but she’ll be appearing in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete which is slated to hit theatres on September 3rd!

After the jump Hitler parody videos are in danger, the return of Wikus van der Merwe and William Shatner does a duet with Taiwan sensation Lin Yu Chun! Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Another One Bites the Dust

jamie chung 1This weekend at the box office is the battle of the eye candy (and maybe slasher flicks). First we have Kate Beckinsale starring in the Antarctic murder mystery Whiteout. Next up there’s Sorority Row, the remake of the 1983 horror movie The House on Sorority Row. Expect to see plenty of attractive ladies get chased and hacked by a hooded killer. Jamie Chung is part of the cast for this movie, but since she’s not the “leading girl”, I bet her character won’t make it out of this one.

Before I kick this off I would like to mention that DirecTV has announced the fourth season to Friday Night Lights will premiere on October 28th! Mark your calendars! Of course, if you’re still waiting for NBC to air it, don’t expect to get your weekly FNL fix until summer 2010.

After the jump Vampire Diaries doesn’t suck, TV is good for you and we learn about the evolution of the peace sign. Continue reading
