Thai Version of ‘Beauty And The Beast’ Just Like Disney Version…Only Worse

October 21st, 2010 No comments

I wonder what audience this shoddily constructed, primitively animated ripoff-of-a-classic was made for. Couldn’t they have just dubbed the Disney version? It would’ve saved the animators minutes of graphics work.

‘Glee’ Photo Shoot Controversy

October 21st, 2010 No comments

Glee is kind of like Lady Gaga. Every last pull for publicity works like a charm. The show’s stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Diana Agron recently posed for a racy photo shoot for men’s magazine GQ, which involved lots of bare skin, tight get-ups and an abundance of overall sluttiness. Basically, nothing new for a Glee-inspired magazine spread. This time, however, the Glee kids were met with protest. A  group known as the Parents Television Council thinks that the photo shoot went too far, even calling it pedophilic.  They released this statement: Read more…

‘Back To The Future’ To Be Re-Released This October

August 6th, 2010 No comments

In what some are calling the worst year for movies ever, people may actually flock to this classic from 1985. I can’t believe it’s nearing 30 years old already! Time flies, doesn’t it?

New Posters For ‘Little Fockers’ And ‘I’m Still Here’

August 6th, 2010 No comments

Do people really want another Fockers comedy? I guess so, since they went out in droves to see the last one. The tagline for Meet the Parents: Little Fockers (a title so badly conceived that it’s almost funny — but not funny ha ha) observes, “Maybe kids will bring them closer?” And to add to the suspense, we have Robert De Niro having a grimace-filled face-off with Ben Stiller. Then it says, “Find out this Christmas.” If you are one of the people who are excited to “find out” what happens in this movie, then you oughtta start seeing a good therapist. Read more…

Was Paul Rudd A Bat Mitzvah DJ?

August 6th, 2010 No comments

Yes, he was. This footage, shot in 1992, just recently surfaced. Most celebrities are lucky enough to have their early career day jobs not evidenced on video. But surely a pre-Clueless Paul Rudd knew that his wacky yellow jacket-wearing/”YMCA”-singing days couldn’t be a secret forever, considering how closely most families document events like Bat Mitzvahs. I can just imagine this footage turning up in the next Judd Apatow production.

Ellen DeGeneres To Leave ‘American Idol’: “This Didn’t Feel Like The Right Fit For Me”

July 29th, 2010 No comments

Last summer, American Idol made headlines when they gave veteran judge Paula Abdul the boot and replaced her with Ellen DeGeneres, a comedian and talk show personality with no musical background. Then Simon Cowell announced his exit from the show. Now DeGeneres wants out. She released the following statement to Access Hollywood:

A couple months ago, I let FOX and the ‘American Idol’ producers know that this didn’t feel like the right fit for me. I told them I wouldn’t leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on Read more…

A Sneak Peak At The New (What Looks To Be Awful) ‘Yogi Bear’ Movie

July 28th, 2010 No comments

Last week, Bill Murray admitted that he is embarrassed by his participation in the 2004 kiddie pic, Garfield (and its 2006 sequel). Perhaps fellow Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd will be feeling the same kind of regret when Yogi Bear –an uninspired, live-action ripoff of the awful Alvin and the Chipmunks movie and its Squeakquel is released this December. (Although, in his intro for this Yahoo-sponsored teaser trailer, Aykroyd certainly appears enthusiastic.)

As a side note: Yogi Bear basically looks like the worst movie ever. And does the allure of hastily converted 3-D honestly reel people in anymore? Toy Story 3 was great, but I kept wanting to take the glasses off and watch the clearer, crisper 2-D version.

VULTURE DROPPINGS OF THE WEEK: Angelina Jolie

July 23rd, 2010 No comments

Before becoming synonymous with adoption, global politics, chic philanthropy and sexy action movies (like Wanted and Salt, which opens today), Angelina Jolie, who made a rousing appearance at Comic-Con today, was a fiery, young actress who was best known as being Jon Voight‘s daughter. And she had a proclivity for choosing quirky roles. Although her big break was Hackers in 1995, it wasn’t until 1998 that she had her breakthrough role in the HBO original movie, Gia, about the fast, short life of late supermodel Gia Carangi. She — and the movie — received rave reviews. Read more…

The New Trailer For ‘Tron: Legacy’ Makes Its Comic-Con Debut

July 22nd, 2010 No comments
It was an afternoon of Tron at Comic-Con today, with Patton Oswalt leading a panel discussion with the film’s stars, including Jeff Bridges, who is reprising his role from the original, Michael Sheen and Olivia Wilde. The franchise has come a long way since 1982. In the new version, they’ve employed technology to make Bridges appear 20 years younger. Wait til Nicole Kidman hears about that one! The circa 1982 trailer is posted after the jump.

Just Who Is ‘Salt’?

July 22nd, 2010 No comments

Something tells me that it’s Angelina Jolie. And this marketing campaign has to end now! The myriad of billboards around the city have long lost their intrigue.
