Entertainment Link-Off: Ching Chong Ling Long Ting Tong

It’s Saturday, so it’s time for another round of the Entertainment Link-Off. It’s a decent showing at the movies this weekend as we get three films all worthy of a look. First there’s the sci-fi comedy Paul starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Then there’s Matthew McConaughey channeling his inner lawyer once again in The Lincoln Lawyer. Finally there’s the thriller on a faux wonderdrug called Limitless starring Bradley Cooper and Abbie Cornish (pictured).

After the jump, the Chinese are no longer the villains in Red Dawn, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reenact Star Wars, manchildren are in danger according to Ben Stiller, Wile E Coyote reenacts 127 Hours, Elmo gets tickled and video responses to that rant about Asians by UCLA student Alexandra Wallace.

Definitely one of the best series finales ever… assuming ABC does not extend the show for a 9th season out of desperation. Anyway, headlining the article today is Hayden Panettiere doing the Vulcan hand sign. No, she’s not in the latest Star Trek flick (that was released Thursday night), but she did appear at the premiere. The film currently sits at 96% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Perhaps J.J. Abrams did manage to revive the franchise that was declared dead after the disastrous 10th flick Star Trek: Nemesis.

Let’s start off with a very random entertainment news. Apparently Chuck Norris can still kick ass… even if it’s just a cardboard version of him! (Olivia Munn)

After the jump, some movie news, a tiny bit on new music and the end of network television! Continue reading
