It’s time for another edition of the Entertainment Link-Off. Since there weren’t any films released this weekend that I wanted to talk about, let’s kick off with someone starring in an upcoming flick. Here’s Jamie Chung kicking ass in the latest Complex magazine photoshoot. Look out for her in Sucker Punch this March.
After the jump, a PG-13 version of The King’s Speech is in the works, some Office news, marketing fail on TV networks, Scott Pilgrim in 60 seconds, the return of Old Spice Guy and Elmo loves you too! Continue reading
It’s near the end of October, so that means Halloween is here! While the usual horror fare hits the theatres this weekend, perhaps it’s a better alternative to just go party it up Halloween style or just simply go trick or treating. Kicking off this entry is Taylor Cole. You might remember her from the now defunct WB series Summerland. Anyway she’s currently in NBC’s The Event. The serialized drama is on a ratings freefall, but this is a good enough reason to keep the show on the air no?
After the jump more pumpkin ideas, behind the scenes on Scott Pilgrim, Disney thinks the old Tron movie is an embarrassment, the Fine Brothers spoil horror movies for you and see the Light Runner in action! Continue reading
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
It’s September already?! Time certainly flies. So now that the summer burn-offs are out of the way, there’s finally a few movies to go see at the theatres again! Most notable one is the action throwback movie Machete starring Danny Trejo. He might not be the eye candy you’re looking for, but he does make a badass action hero. Speaking of eye candy, Jessica Alba is in this movie!
After the jump, a look at a Tron theme park, something that will help you understand Inception better, James Cameron fights off Piranhas, some love for Scott Pilgrim in the UK and watch out for a Hobo with a Shotgun. Continue reading
You know it’s the end of the summer when there are no new releases worth mentioning in theatres this weekend. Unless you feel like checking out the special edition of Avatar, perhaps it’s worth pointing out that Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is still in theatres at the moment! That’s why I’m starting this entry off with Ramona Flowers, I mean Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
After the jump M. Night Shyamalan pokes fun at himself, Jennifer Aniston makes desperate attention seeking move, Lex Luthor and Joker channel their inner Calvin and Hobbes, a look at the Tron-a-Sutra, some awesome Scott Pilgrim mashups and Ving Rhames wins the Best Actor Oscar. Continue reading
With all the major summer films out, it’s time for the summer leftovers. Not a single of the new releases this weekend is expected to make a large blip at the box office. However one of the world’s greatest travesties just might happen if Vampires Suck out-grosses Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. So please go see Scott Pilgrim instead of that lame attempt at a Twilight spoof! In fact, it pains me to say it, but go see the actual Twilight film instead of that piece of crap. Anyway, kicking off this Entertainment Link-Off is Jessica Szohr. She’ll be appearing in the gory fish thriller Piranha 3D this weekend. Unfortunately, the movie doesn’t look like it’ll be making that big of a splash.
After the jump, a farewell to At the Movies, a few attempts to convince you to go see Scott Pilgrim, McFly’s new music video, Oscars for Piranha 3D and Joseph Gordon-Levitt feels like a natural woman. Continue reading
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World might not be able to light up the box office in the present, but in 10-15 years from now, this film would have established itself as a cult hit or better yet, it will solidify its title as the defining movie of the Nintendo generation. Edgar Wright has taken the tale of Scott Pilgrim and created one of the most exhilarating, flashy, heartfelt, honest, original mainstream films out there. We may only be eight months into 2010, but this film has already established itself as one of the best of the year. Continue reading
Steve will be away this weekend so the Sunday Link-Off will be taking a break. Instead, be on a lookout for the review of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World tomorrow night! Speaking of Scott Pilgrim, the comic book-turned-live action feature is out this week. If you’re from Toronto, show some T-dot love and go see this movie. Kicking off this week’s Entertainment Link-Off is Ellen Wong, who has a role as one of Scott’s many love interests, Knives Chau.
After the jump, plenty more Scott Pilgrim related links, a few nifty features of The Other Guys and Friday Night Lights sets a return date. Continue reading
It’s the first weekend of August and the summer movies are starting to come to an end. This weekend there’s the dance movie franchise with declining popularity with Step Up 3D starring Aussie actress Sharni Vinson. The Step Up flicks aren’t that great plot-wise, but they fun to check out. However, I think the buddy cop comedy The Other Guys seem to be tracking better and is generating a lot more laughter as well. Plus, how can you not like a film with a loaded cast of Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Eva Mendes, Sam Jackson and Dwayne Johnson?
After the jump a lot of new Scott Pilgrim promo stuff to check out, the characters of Inception doesn’t quite get inception, Little Fockers is a little focked and Eva Mendes’ sex tape! Continue reading
Comic-Con 2010 is here. The first day kicked off with plenty of excitement. Of course Joss Whedon and J.J. Abrams were at hand to discuss about their projects (and Whedon officially confirms that he is directing The Avengers). Plenty of awesome panels took place including Tron Legacy, Battle: Los Angeles and The Expendables. Also, what would Comic-Con be without the epic of epic epicness Scott Pilgrim vs. the World?
