Week in Review May 30, 2008

The Andromeda Strain
A&E aired an Andromeda Strain remake with Benjamin Bratt & Eric McCormack that was originally developed by The Sci Fi channel. It got more viewers in key demographics than any other movie on basic cable so far this year.

The trailer for the upcoming Choke has been made available by MTV. Its a movie based on Chuck Palahniuk’s book. I saw the flick in Austin during SXSW and loved it.

Harrison Ford
Han Solo pulled a 40 Year Old Virgin and waxed his chest all in the name of a good cause. I personally enjoyed the behind the scenes footage! (Okay, I totally said “shave” in the video. I temporarily forgot the difference between the scraping of a razor and the ripping of wax. Oops!)

King of Kong: Fist Full of Quarters
Want to see what its like to play for the Donkey Kong world record? The battle of Billy vs. Steve is coming to a television near you Sunday, June 1st on G4.

The band’s latest video proves they know how to rock YouTube! Can you name all the featured viral stars?

Oh, Twitter my love, how I miss thee. Thanks to the Twitter team for keeping us in the loop. I’m still a dedicated user. 🙂


Summer Movie Preview: Part 2

The Incredible Hulk
Marvel’s second installment as a new production company, The Incredible Hulk, stars Edward Norton and Liv Tyler and opens June 13. There has been a heated disagreement over the final cut between Norton and the execs at Marvel Studios. Luckily, this movie doesn’t have nearly the pressure on it since Iron Man did so “incredibly” at the box office. Speaking of…Robert Downey, Jr. has a cameo as Tony Stark!

Get Smart
If you are not aware of the Mel Brooks created TV series Get Smart from the late 60’s, get to TVLand pronto. Granted Steve Carrell is my second favorite actor (behind Will Ferrel) so I might be a bit biased but I think he is the perfect pick for Agent Maxwell Smart. And as jealous as I am that Anne Hathaway took my dream job, I’m content with that casting. On June 20th…you know where I’ll be!

Opening July 2nd, Will Smith plays the conflicted superhero Hancock but I’m more excited that Jason Bateman is playing his PR consultant. Official site is here.

The Dark Knight
Vote Harvey Dent for Gotham DA! Wait…thats not real, its all for a movie. This sequel is one of the most anticipated movies of the summer and my hopes are high that it will be the best of the Batman franchise. Official site and awesome trailer here. *On a side note, Christian Bale just signed on to star as John Conor in 3 Terminator movies.

The X-Files: I Want to Believe
Scully and Mulder return on July 25. This movie was written by series creator Chris Carter.

Week in Review April 18, 2008

Fox Pilot
Oops! I forgot to say the name of this pilot. Its Sit Down, Shut Up. This animated comedy is being voiced by some heavy weights including Cheri Oteri and Arrested Development alums Henry Winkler, Will Arnett and Jason Bateman.

CW Pilot
I don’t understand why anyone would want to spin-off a show that has been over for 8 years but apparently 90210 is worth it.

New on DVD
It is now time to rent Lars and the Real Girl and download Juno. Immediately. Kthnxbai.
