RockNRolla Trailer

I love Guy Richie, you love Guy Richie. Who doesn’t LOVE Guy Richie. Directorial brilliance. I bet he pisses brilliance. And only goes wee wee on a gold toilet. If not now he will be soon, seeing how his soon to be divorce to Madonna will be a dirty bare-knuckle fight.

Its reported that Madonna has just hired Paul McCartney’s lawyer from his recent Heather Mills split.
One point Madonna.
However Guy never signed a prenup.
100 million points for Guy!

Like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels? (When you dance with the devil, you wait for the song to stop.)
Perhaps better known Snatch? (In the quiet words of the Virgin Mary… come again?)
Your going to cream your pants over this one.

Ya I’m lude and crude. What you gunna do about it?





Comic-Movie mashup overload!

25 06 2008

I’ll lay it right on the table to start. Im a nerd. Not only am I aware, but I embrace this element of my personality. I feel the need to announce this fact in order to prevent the numerous comments I expect to recieve labelling me as so. Beat you to the punch.

Ive seen many good comic book movie crossovers lately… Batman begins, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk to name a few. Those films in combination with my endless obsession with movie blogs and overall buzz snooping has me fixed on the edge of my seat for the many more adaptations on the brink of production/being announced/released.

The Dark Knight – the endless stream of viral marketing has kept me quite occupied throughout the last year
The Green Hornet – Seth Rogan as Britt Reid. Pure genius. Only question is if I can wait until 2010!
Wolverine – X-Men Origins… or whatever. Doesn’t matter. All that does it Hugh vs Liev, tres exciting!
Hellboy 2 – Ill admit, I cant even recall what happens in the first one. Guillermo del Toro is why I will watch.
Watchmen – Get a glimpse of the limited production photos released. Looks like great casting!   
Justice League – casting is not up to date/limited. Hopefully they release head to head with the Avengers!
The Avengers – Breakdown HERE
Hancock – Will Will be an 8-hit wonder?
Gi Joe – Alot of big names are cast. Brendan Fraser, Sienna Miller, Chanum Tatum. High expectations!
The Spirit – Yes, its based of a graphic novel. Yes, very similar feel to Sin City. Samuel L Jackson in Comic book movie number #546781
Wanted – This ones going to kill the box office. Hopefully its success convinces Ange to sign onto Sin City 2!

And then there are those others which should be halted in their tracks:

The Sub – Mariner; a glorified-jacked up-merman-aquaman ripoff
Shazam! – Captin Marvel is a lame version of Superman. The rock (sorry Dwayne Johnson) as the villain, who would have thought! haha.
Luke Cage – Tyrese Gibsonas a superhero? God help us.
Thor – umm… great idea for a member of The Avengers… not so much as a solo.
The Green Lantern – The writer’s credits include Dawsons Creek. Enough said.
Ant-Man – Could this be made as anything but a comedy? Although, if Simon Pegg plays Hank it would surely be a home run!
Spiderman 4 – Enough is enough.

Wanna know more? Did I miss a film? Want to see production photos, hear spoilers, casting, or online buzz? Im your resource (OR you could just use slashfilm.com)! Message me or comment and ill send you a gagle of links.

Have an opinion of your own? Comment and share!





Poor Kanye…

25 06 2008

As this is the first many pre/post Lollapalooza posts, I felt it was it was important to start with a Bang. As you can very obviously tell below, Kanye West is upset. Very upset. This ‘rant’ is in regards to his recenty show at Bonaroo where people threw things on stage and were very upset that he started two hours late.

” I am sick of negative people who just sit around trying 2 plot my downfall… Why???? I understand if people don’t like me because I like me or if people think tight clothes look gay or people say I run my mouth to much, But this Bonnaroo thing is the worst insult I’ve ever had in my life. This is the most offended I’ve ever been… this is the maddest I ever will be. I’m typing so fucking hard I might break my fucking Mac book Air!!!!!!!! Call me any name you want…. arrogant, conceited, narcissistic, racist, metro, fag whatever you can think of…. BUT NEVER SAY I DIDN’T GIVE MY ALL! NEVER SAY I DIDN’T GIVE MY ALL! THIS SHOWS NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY TO BE GOOD AT SOMETHING THERE WILL BE PEOPLE THERE TO LIE ABOUT YOU AND BRING YOU DOWN! LIKE WAYNE SAYS PLEASE DON’T SHOOT ME DOWN CAUSE I’M FLYING! I’M FUCKING HURT BY THIS ONE. ALL I CARE ABOUT ARE THE FANS. JUST SAY THIS OUT LOUD IN A ROOM FULL OF PEOPLE, “KANYE DOESN’T CARE ABOUT GIVING A GOOD PERFORMANCE.” CAN ANYONE HONESTLY SAY THAT ????????? HAS ANYONE EVEN TAKEN THE TIME TO AT LEAST DO THE MATH??? BONNAROO SHOULD HAVE RELEASED A STATEMENT IN MY DEFENSE BUT SINCE THEY HAVEN’T LET’S BREAK DOWN THE WALLS ON THIS TRUMAN SHOW AND LET YOU KNOW WHAT REALLY OCCURRED!!! FOR OVER A MONTH WE WENT BACK AND FORTH ON WETHER OR NOT WE COULD EVEN FIT MY STAGE AT THE FESTIVAL. ONE DAY THEY WOULD SAY YES… WE’D SEND THEM OUR SPECS THEN THEY THEY’D SAY OK… THEN THEY WOULD SEND SPECS BACK THAT DIDN’T FIT THE STAGE. WE WERE OBVIOUSLY DEALING WITH FUCKING IDIOTS WHO DIDN’T REALLY HAVE THE CAPACITY TO REALLY PUT ON THIS SHOW PROPERLY. THEY TRIED 2 GIVE ME A TIME SLOT WERE IT WAS STILL LIGHT OUTSIDE … I HAVE A FUCKING LIGHT SHOW DUMB ASS, IT’S NOT CALLED GLOW IN THE DARK FOR NO REASON SQUID BRAINS! MY PEOPLE WORKED OUT A COMPROMISED STAGE PLOT AND A 3AM TIME SLOT AND I AGREED. FAST FOWARD TO THE DAY OF THE SHOW. MY PRODUCTION MANAGER TRIED TO LOAD IN FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE I WENT ON STAGE BUT THE FESTIVAL WOULDN’T ALLOW US TO DO ANYTHING UNTILL PEARL JAM LEFT THE STAGE. PEARL JAM ENDED ONE HOUR
LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT THAT POINT WE’RE RACING AGAINST THE SUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT 4:20AM DON COMES BACK 2 THE BUS AND TELLS ME, ” IT WOULD TAKE 45 MORE MINUTES TO PUT ALL YOUR PYRO IN!” I SAY I HAVE TO GET OUT THERE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE . I HIT THE STAGE AND PEOPLE HAD BEEN THROWING SHIT ON THE STAGE AND HAD ACTUALLY HIT THE JANE SCREEN WITH, I GUESS BOTTLES OR SOMETHING AND HAD BROKEN MY FUCKING SCREEN. REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE A SHORTY AND WATER WOULD HIT THE TV?????? WHEN I GOT 2 “THROUGH THE WIRE” I STEPPED ON THE FRONT PART OF MY STAGE AND THERE WAS SO MUCH LIQUID ON THE STAGE I COULDN’T MOVE WITHOUT SLIPPING. I HAD TO ADJUST MY WHOLE PERFORMANCE STYLE BECAUSE OF IT. A FEW MORE SONGS IN AND THE SONG WAS ON IT’S WAY UP.. I CUT A FEW SONGS FROM THE SET BECAUSE I WANTED PEOPLE 2 EXPERIENCE STRONGER WHILE THERE WAS STILL SOME DARKNESS TO PERFORM IT IN. I’VE STRUGGLED WITH STRONGER FROM IT’S CONCEPTION. REMEMBER LAST SUMMER WHEN I CANCELED SOME TV APPEARANCES. IT WAS BECAUSE I DIDN’T WANT TO PERFORM STRONGER IN THE DAYTIME. ANYONE WHO CAME TO THE GLOW TOUR CAN UNDERSTAND WHY I WANTED PEOPLE TO SEE IT PROPERLY. IT BROKE MY HEART THAT I COULDN’T GIVE THESE FANS STRONGER IN IT’S GREATEST FORM… BY THE TIME I GOT TO STRONGER IT WAS DAYTIME AND IT BROKE MY HEART. I’M SORRY TO EVERYONE THAT I DIDN’T HAVE THE ABILITY 2 GIVE THE PERFORMANCE I WANTED TO. I’M SORRY… SOMETIMES I GO 2, 3 DAYS W/O SLEEP WORKING ON MY PERFORMANCE… I HAVE TO ICE MY KNEES AFTER EVERY SHOW AND THEY HURT WHEN I WALK THROUGH THE AIRPORT… HAVING AN EXPENSIVE STAGE CUTS MY PAYDAY IN HALF… CALL ME WHAT YOU WANT BUT NEVER SAY I DIDN’T GIVE MY ALL!!!”

WOW. This has officially helped me make up my mind concerning the NIN vs Kanye head to head at Lolla. Kanye it is, hands down. I have a feeling his Glow in the Dark preformance will be one not to miss. Perhaps I can catch Trent at the end of his set… but even if not, I have a feeling I wont be missing out on much.





Aziz Ansari Joins The Office Spin-Off/WEEDS REVIEW

20 06 2008

Trackback/slashfilm.
“We don’t post a lot of TV news but we couldn’t let this kidney stone of bananas pass us by. Aziz Ansari of the Human Giant clan (and fellow /Film reader) has joined NBC’s spin-off to The Office. Ansari is the first cast member to be announced for the top-secret comedy series. At this point it’s believed that the cast will consist of an all new line-up, though rumors persist about the involvement of Rashida Jones, who played Karen Filippelli, Jim’s ex-flame, on the original U.S. series. Yes, that’s the first “ex-flame” I’ve ever typed.

What’s more, the super-talented Paul Feig of Freaks and Geeks fame just boarded the show’s writing staff, which includes Dan Goor (Conan O’Brien, The Daily Show), Alan Yang (South Park), and Charlie Grandy (SNL, The Daily Show). Nice. Executive producers Michael Shur and Greg Daniels say they’re still deciding on a premise for the untitled show, set to premiere after next year’s Superbowl and thereafter in the timeslot following the ongoing trials of Jim, Pam and Michael. Yeah, you could say we’re excited…in advance. And congrats to Ansari.

In other TV news, the new season of Weeds premieres this Monday on Showtime, while the hotly anticipated second season of Mad Men premieres July 27th on AMC. via Variety /E!”

DONT KNOW WHO AZIZ ANSARI IS? WATCH THIS!

-WEEDS SPOILERS AHEAD-

I watched the first episode of new season of Weeds lat night. NOTES:
-Loved that Ceilia is getting F*#$ed. About time (not literally though).
-What was with the “dad” pissing away at Nancy then being like “ok, you can stay in the house.”
-Hilarious when Doug and Dean are high as a kite and Doug says “Issabelle is cool, shes basically already one of the guys”. And Dean responds “Im waiting until shes finished puberty to make that decision.”
-Wow. Has Silias ever grown! Hot hot hot.
-BRING BACK MARY KATE.
-So Majestic …or Agrestic.. is gone. Burned. Is the house burned though? WHO KNOWS. I dont think so. That would be a cop out…too easy.
-Nancy as a smuggler over the border eh? Is it just me or does the lack of security personnel seem quite questionable.
-Please do not let the conversation between Nancy and Andy seem like a setup for a Drunken/Emotionally moment driven sexual encounter in the near future. Let us hope not.





me to the capital T.

20 06 2008

I am a self professed nerd. Not ONLY a nerd, but specifically a film nerd. I browse blogging sites like slashfilm all day long, and the first person with up and coming information about obscure movies and viral marketing campaigns currently in progress. If its a buzz worthy movie, ive probably heard of it. I watch… over a dozen a week usually. I pride myself on all of this – I embrace it.

Starting a movie related conversation with me? Beware. I dont know my own limits. I dare you to try.





its that kinda day…

Sweedish Sensation

19 06 2008

Lykke Li

This little songstress performed at the Mod Club about a month back.

At the time I was quite unenthusiastic about sticking around to catch the whole show and subsequently ended up leaving halfway through the show.
What a mistake. Since she has invaded my playlist with requital obliterating all other would be combatants.

VIDEO for “Little Bit”

VIDEO for “I’m Good, I’m Gone”

Listen to Kleerup – Until We Bleed (with Lykke Li)

BIO –  Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson (born March 18, 1986 in Stockholm, Sweden), better known by her stage name Lykke Li, is an indie singer.

She was raised by artistic parents (her mother was a photographer, her father is a musician); she lived in Portugal for five years and spent winters in Nepal and India. At one point, she worked as a dancer on Swedish TV.

Li released her first album, Youth Novels on LL Recordings in the Nordic region on 4 February 2008, prior to a wider European release this June. The album was produced by Björn Yttling (of Peter Bjorn and John) and Lasse Mårtén. It will be released in the United States on 6 May 2008.

The 2007 EP “Little Bit” had some success on its release. Stereogum named her an artist to watch in October 2007, describing her music as a mix of soul, electro and powdered-sugar pop.
