I HATE Gus Van Sant. Let me get that out of the way first. Now sure he has been involved with many films I liked, such as Good Will Hunting. But My Private Idaho and Elephant are probably two of my least favorite movies of all time. Well he is directing the Harvey Milk biopic (wondering who is Harvey Milk?). So I looked up the film because there is a lot of buzz about which celebrities are in it. Currently Sean Penn, Emile Hirsch, and James Franco are attached/filming. But that is not the point of this post. It turns out there is a Gus Van Sant movie coming out soon. Paranoid Park. Heres the plot line: A teenage skateboarder’s life begins to fray after he is involved in the accidental death of a security guard. I watched the trailer and I want to see it.
This is an unaired Soup skit about Definitely, Maybe. The movie is adorable, sweet, funny, and a great chick flick. I rushed out to see it on Valentines day. But that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy a spoof. Particularlly a wildly inappropriate one. Check it out!
I never thought I would say this, but there is a Tyler Perry movie I am looking forward to. “Meet the Browns” looks like solid family movie, and Angela Bassett is always an amazing actress.
At work I caught the Speed Racer trailer this weekend. It looks awesome, its shot in HD entirely green screened and Emile Hirsch is Speed Racer. Its shot to look anime-ish. I think it will be a fun movie, although I am not a big Speed Racer fan so I don’t care about fidelity.
Political activist / Media correspondent Snoop Dogg, oh wait, I mean Blunt Smoker/Rapper/#1 Pimp Snoop Dogg is torn up about who to vote for. Or at least thats the implication between CNN political ticker headline Snoop Dogg torn between Obama, Clinton. Now I have no problem with this article, I mean people are always curious what candidates celebrities support. And with the rockstar like craze Obama has been using to help people look past his weak credentials and even weaker plans, it is refreshing to see a celebrity not just jump on the wagon. Many celebrities with little to no political knowledge have jumped behind Obama helping to raise money and awareness. Some how there is this implication if you don’t support Obama over Clinton you are some racist who hates change.
What I thought was funny is that the article is the top story on the CNN ticker, which is a blog I frequent several times a day. If I were Snoop I would write a rap about the two candidates and switch between the verses who I was supporting. Add in his characteristically smooth hooks and he now has new hit that every station will jump to play throughout the primary season.
How badass is the fact that they are making a G.I. J.O.E. Movie? The Internet gossip is all abuzz with who is in it and who isn’t. The imdb page. Jason Gordon Levitt, Sienna Miller, and Marlon Wayons are supposedly in it. I also read on another site that Channing Tatum has been cast as Duke. Well whoever, it should be cool. I used to play with the action figures for hours imagining the weirdest story-lines. (Of course all stories revolved around the fact they could twist around the center)
