Weird Al Yankovic’s Parody of Lorde’s ‘Royals’ Will Make Your Week

For decades, Weird Al Yankovic has been a magical comedy touchstone and his musical parodies have proven to be timeless — more so than the actual songs.

Daniel Radcliffe Looks Naturally Horny in New ‘Horns’ Trailer

Daniel Radcliffe Looks Naturally Horny in New ‘Horns’ Trailer

horns

There are couple of things I learned about Horns through the new trailer:

1.) It’s based on a novel by Joe Hill.

2.) It stars the guy from The Social Network.

3.) It stars my personal favorite, Juno Temple.

4.) Turns out Daniel Radcliffe‘s snake-speaking skills are coming in handy outside of the Harry Potter franchise.

5.) Radcliffe looks good in horns.

6.) …um…that’s all I’ve learned. Enjoy the…

You just don’t hear that many odes to strippers these days — especially one as beautiful as Wyclef’s.

'Felicity' Revisited: Scott Speedman Does Some Very Entertaining DVD Commentary

‘Felicity’ Revisited: Scott Speedman Does Some Very Entertaining DVD Commentary

speedman

Do yourself a favor and try to get a hold of the second season of Felicity on DVD. It is full of great DVD commentary with the cast, but the best commentary comes in the episode titled “The List” where Keri Russell and Scott Speedman serve up some commentary — and Speedman’s thoughts entertain us thoroughly. Here are his greatest hits from that commentary:

Reacting to a scene where Felicity is…

My Rambling, Unstructured Thoughts About ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’

My Rambling, Unstructured Thoughts About ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’

caesar

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has easily made my top three movies of the summer. At first, I put it at number three behind with Snowpiercer at number two and X-Men: Days of Future Pasttaking the top spot. After seeing the movie for a second time, I am re-thinking where this falls in my top three. Let me marinate on this. By the time I reach the end of this discourse, I may have a final decision…

Everything Looks so White and Pretty in President Snow’s Second Panem Address

Everything Looks so White and Pretty in President Snow’s Second Panem Address

The Hunger Games team is going all out with their propaganda-singed marketing approach for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. First there was the collection of impressive posters representing each district. Now, they have been releasing teaser trailers. Actually, they are clever “state-of-the-union”-esque PSAs where President Snow (Donald Sutherland) talks about Unity and being “together as…

Rickie From ‘My So-Called Life’ Explains All the Eyeliner in ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’

Rickie From ‘My So-Called Life’ Explains All the Eyeliner in ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’

The trailer for Ridley Scott‘s Exodus: Gods and Kings hit the interwebs the other day and it is quite biblically epic — 10 plagues and all.

The one thing people are taking away from this movie is not the cinematic scope and scale, but how fabulous Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton in their eyeliner. Why are they wearing eyeliner, you ask? Well, Rickie (Wilson Cruz) has all the answers for you in…

On My Watchlist: ‘Snowpiercer’, ‘Once’, and ‘They Came Together’

SNOWPIERCER

I missed the press screening for this and I am going to regret it for the rest of my life. I missed the opportunity to interview director Bong Joon-Ho and I am going to regret that too. Based on the graphic novel, “Le Transperceneige” movie is like Hunger Games, The Raid, Total Recall, The Running Man, Blade Runner,and a whole bunch of fanboyish movies. Starring a unlikely cast of…

‘Felicity’ Revisited: The One Where She Marries a Gay Guy

For the next couple of weeks, I will be rewatching all four seasons of Felicity because — well — why not? Plus, I recently interviewed Keri Russell for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (look out for the interview VERY soon) and that prompted me to dust off my FelicityDVDs and revisit her, Noel, Ben, Elena, Julie, Sean, Amanda and the rest of the gang so that I can relive all the magic that was…
