The Devil's Carnival - only chapter one?

A new article on Bloody-Disgusting not only features details of the roadshow (I got my ticket) but it points out an interesting thing on the new poster; "{episode one}" Does this mean that this is only the first part of a bigger project? We'll see how I feel after seeing it in May but as of right now I am sure hoping so.

I also noticed how it is now listed as 55 minutes instead of 45, but I don't think that is a big deal.

If you want to go see the road show buy your tickets because as the article states, they are starting to sell out. When I bought mine last week the $40 Ringmaster package was already sold out for my city. I opted for the $20 Sinner package because a couple weeks prior I dropped $50 on Garbage tickets, but I am excited. Let's all go and have a party. =^D

Problems for The Human Centipede 3 (thank God)

Apparently the "massive ego" of Dieter Laser (aka, the doctor from the first Human Centipede film) is causing problems for the third installment, The Human Centipede 3: Final Sequence. According to producer Ilona Six, Laser agreed to the third film and is now demanding unacceptable script changes. As a result Laser has refused to play the part with only 7 weeks until principal photography. Director Tom Six is now planning to sue Dieter Laser and says he will just postpone production until later this year if necessary.

However... Dieter Laser has since released a statement in regards to the legal issue Tom Six has chosen to create:
"It's very simple: I loved the story when it was told, got the contract and the promise to have the script in 4 to 6 weeks. When it arrived – half a year later and only after the official announcement – I didn’t like the realization at all, couldn't identify with the character the way it was written and developed immediately and enthusiastically in a day and night marathon a version full of concrete and practical suggestions which would enable me to play the lead full throttle – same procedure as with Dr. Heiter – but this time it also would have had some unavoidable effects to the dramatic structure. That was too much for Tom and since he couldn't live with my suggestions and I as a method actor couldn’t identify with his version, I told him that I couldn’t see any other way than that he would have to ‘change horses’. That's it.”

I personally hope that this permanently stalls production and potentially cancels it because The Human Centipede movies are complete pieces of shit, no pun intended.  Tom Six needs a padded room and a therapist as far as I'm concerned.

Liam Neeson will be in The Dark Knight Rises

He had apparently been seen on set and now it has been confirmed. Liam Neeson will reprise his role as Ra's Al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises. It's listed as a cameo so he probably won't appear for too long.

Does this surprise me? No.
Does this excite me? Meh. Batman Begins is my least favorite of the Nolan films so far.

Are you excited?

On the Road to play at Cannes

We speculated it and it's happening. Ugh, I want to see this movie ffs. We still don't have a US release date either.

Other movies screening at Cannes 2012 seem to be Cosmopolis, Moonrise Kingdom, Cogan's Trade, and Rust & Bone.

Even more hell for Akira

This movie is never going to get made. They should just quit trying. Maybe revisit the idea in 3-5 years.

MGM officially selects Chloe Moretz for the lead in Carrie

I posted a blog about this in the past week ( and my main concern then was that Chloe Moretz might be a little too young for the role. I am still thinking that, but I believe in the girl. I have seen more stellar performances by her so far than most actresses in their 20's and 30's dish out. She can make it work and hopefully the negotiations lead to her accepting the role and signing a contract. I'd much rather have Chloe than Haley Bennett.

Trey Songz to make acting debut in Texas Chainsaw reboot

I don't know what is funnier... the fact that Trey Songz is going to be in a horror movie (that will no doubt be terrible) or learning that he was in The Preacher's Wife.

Anyway, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D is set to be released by Lionsgate on October 5th. Will I see it? Probably. I saw the reboots for Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. Might as well keep the tradition up. Will I enjoy it? I highly doubt it.

Bully to be released unrated

The Weinstein Company has attempted their final blow to the MPAA for the R-rating the upcoming film Bully received. The MPAA cited language as their reasoning to give Bully an R-rating. There have been petitions and appeals to try and get the film knocked down to PG-13 with no positive result. TWC's response to this mess? They are releasing the movie with an NR status (aka, unrated). Similar to NC-17 this means a lot of theaters won't carry it because there is no structured rating. However, I think that also might change. The buzz and popularity this film is getting before it's even released might persuade a lot of theaters that wouldn't normally carry it to screen it in at least one theater, even if it's only 2-3 screenings a day.

I applaud The Weinstein Company and the film's director, Lee Hirsch, and plan on seeing this movie even if I have to drive a little bit to find a theater carrying it. From what I have seen and heard so far I think it's a must see for adults and children. This company has said through their actions what most people should have said a long time ago... fuck the MPAA.

True Blood - Season 5 promos begin

These are... interesting.

The Hunger Games opens with $155 million

It earned a spot in the top 3 box office openings of all time trailing behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 ($169.2) and The Dark Knight ($158.4). This also means it smashed all 4 existing Twilight Saga openings, including New Moon, thus smashing any and all comparisons between the two stories. At least that's my opinion. The Hunger Games is better and this is another piece of the puzzle to prove it. Apparently, it has also become Lionsgate's highest grossing film to date.

And this is only the first movie. We still have Catching Fire and Mockingjay. =^D

We'll see if this record will hold up once The Dark Knight Rises is released. I think it has a chance, especially since we don't have the international numbers in just yet, but we'll wait and see.

The Hunger Games - Review

I'm just going to start out by saying this will have spoilers, so don't read on if you don't want to read anything about the movie and/or the book.

We good? Good.
So... I did like the movie. I want to come out and say that. It was very well done and pretty well acted. I feel like the first half with the reaping and the training was the closest to the book this movie got, though. The games were too easy and had a lot of omissions and were very fast paced. They also had close to no explanation to little details that were in the book. They just kind of threw the audience in there. My boyfriend hadn't read the book prior to seeing the movie so I had to explain a lot to him after we got out of the theater.
I said the first half was quite close to the book and I mean that. I loved the way they did the reaping and I loved the farewell to Katniss and Peeta. The arrival at the Capitol was probably where it started to stray for me. I liked the interviews with Caesar, but I didn't like how they introduced the tributes. They made some of their names prominent but ignored others.

My main issue with this movie was the games. They were very fast paced and they were really easy. The book made the games seem legitimately brutal. The tributes lost weight, they got hurt, they struggled for food and water, etc.. In the movie everything just kind of seemed readily available to them and by the time the games were over, Katniss and Peeta seemed quite healthy and well off. And what the fuck, Peeta still has his leg. I don't understand that at all.

As far as the violence goes, people that are complaining about the PG-13 rating and claim people shouldn't take their teens and children to the movie are full of shit and they obviously didn't watch it. I was expecting a lot more violence and blood and it just wasn't there. You obviously see kids die but oddly enough I think the most graphic death was Glimmer when she gets stung by the Tracker Jackers. You see Rue get stabbed and you see Katniss kill Marvel with the arrow, but everything else was more implied with sound cues and very fast editing. The way most of the tributes were killed at the Cornucopia was very quick and you don't really see a whole lot. If you are worried about taking 11 and 12 year olds to this movie I wouldn't be too concerned. Younger than that? Maybe not. Not only would the violence that is there creep them out a bit but the overall political tone to the film would probably fly right over them. Not to mention how hard it is to keep kids sitting still for almost 2.5 hours. The movie is quite long.

Overall I did like the movie. I feel like my disappointment about any part of it is just because I read the book first. If I wouldn't have read the book before the movie I probably would have enjoyed it a lot more. I look forward to movies for Catching Fire and Mockingjay.

Carrie remake casting narrowed down to two

Chloe Moretz or Haley Bennett.

Yes. In the remake of Carrie (which is a mistake, imo) the casting has been narrowed down to these two actresses; 15-year old Chloe Moretz and 24-year old Haley Bennett.
After seeing what Chloe did with Let Me In I'm not necessarily opposed to her returning to the horror genre. She is also set to be Emily in the upcoming Emily the Strange project and is in Dark Shadows, so I don't know if choosing her would necessarily be bad. I do feel that she's a bit young for the role, though. Sissy Spacek was 27-years old, ffs.
I don't really know anything about Haley Bennett so I'll have to research a bit. By the look of her I wouldn't know what to think when it comes to Carrie. I'd cast her as one of the other girls over casting her as Carrie White.

And on a side note, LOL at Jodie Foster being approached to play Carrie's mother. That is just hilarious to me.

The Hunger Games sets a box office record

The Hunger Games earned $19.74 million at the box office last night, or this morning, via midnight premiere screenings. That set a box office record for the most earned at midnight by a non-sequel film. Overall it sits at #7 of the highest grossing midnight premieres.

1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 ($43.5)
2. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 ($30.3)
3. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse ($30.1)
4. The Twilight Saga: New Moon ($26.3)
5. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 ($24.0)
6. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince ($22.2)
7. The Hunger Games ($19.7)
8. The Dark Knight ($18.5)
9. Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith ($16.5)
10. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen ($16.0)

For a non-sequel that isn't bad at all. I can't wait to see it.

Breaking Dawn Part 2 teaser before The Hunger Games

I, unfortunately, didn't see a midnight screening of The Hunger Games. I have to wait until Saturday night to see it because of work, but I have already seen the "big" teaser for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. Why did I search to find a rip of it online instead of waiting? Curiosity and I needed a laugh.

I won't link the clip I saw because I have no doubt it will get taken down before too long and I don't feel like continuously searching to find another one to replace it. If you don't plan on seeing The Hunger Games this weekend, and don't want to wait until Monday when it premieres online, just go to the Breaking Dawn Part 2 forum on IMDB and fish through the links all those people keep posting. That's how I found one that was still active, tbh.

To spoil the teaser...
Basically it starts with Bella's typical voice over saying something like "after 18 years I finally know I can shine." She holds her hand up in the air and you see what the world looks like to her as a vampire now. You see her running through the woods all fast, you see Jacob saying he didn't expect her to seem so normal, and Edward holds her and is like, "we're the same temperature now." You see Bella's red, vampire eyes and the end of it shows a deer walking through the woods and she pops out from behind a tree. Basically if you read the book you understand what is going on with the deer. If you didn't, Edward is teaching her how to hunt.
That's it, guys. When they said it was just going to be a teaser they weren't kidding. The only comment I really have and I said it after I saw Breaking Dawn Part 1 is that Bill Condon must not have liked the fact that Stephenie Meyer's vampires sparkled because they do not in his Twilight movies. In BD1 they were on a tropical island with Edward in swim suits, tank tops, and shorts and he never sparkled in the sun. In this teaser, Bella is holding her hand up in the sun and Edward's skin is exposed and they don't sparkle. I remember watching New Moon and thinking it was ridiculous how much Edward sparkled. If he walked past a window that had light coming in he looked like a fucking crystal statue. Maybe it's just because I haven't seen a high quality version of it yet, but the inconsistency is annoying.

First song from The Devil's Carnival

They need to fix the PayPal link so I can buy my fucking road show tickets.


I'm not really a fan of Robert Pattinson, but his upcoming film Cosmopolis looks mighty interesting.

Basic plot of the film:

"New York City, not-too-distant-future: Eric Packer, a 28 year-old finance golden boy dreaming of living in a civilization ahead of this one, watches a dark shadow cast over the firmament of the Wall Street galaxy, of which he is the uncontested king. As he is chauffeured across midtown Manhattan to get a haircut at his father's old barber, his anxious eyes are glued to the yuan's exchange rate: it is mounting against all expectations, destroying Eric's bet against it. Eric Packer is losing his empire with every tick of the clock. Meanwhile, an eruption of wild activity unfolds in the city's streets. Petrified as the threats of the real world infringe upon his cloud of virtual convictions, his paranoia intensifies during the course of his 24-hour cross-town odyssey. Packer starts to piece together clues that lead him to a most terrifying secret: his imminent assassination"

DVD design of Dragon Tattoo worthless?

People complaining about the design of the DVD for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo must not have seen the movie. If they have, then they obviously didn't pay attention. I think the DVD design was great. It's very relevant to Lisbeth Salander's character.

I will admit when I first opened up the package and saw the "burned disc" I was a bit confused, but it is very easy to tell it is a legit disc. What a bunch of idiots.

The Devil's Carnival full trailer released

This makes me even more excited for the road show in May.

Michael Rooker returning to The Walking Dead

Yes indeed, children. Michael Rooker will be returning as Merle in season 3. We don't know specifics or how many episodes, but we do have confirmation that he is back. My guess is that he is going to be in the prison.

Snow White and the Huntsman official trailer surfaces early

Not too early seeing that The Voice is on tonight which makes me happy because now I don't have to watch it. It is available on YouTube and

I am officially excited now. I think this movie looks really great. Very visually satisfying in terms of the way the effects look. I've waited patiently to hear Snow White speak and I am not disappointed or upset at all. I was anticipating being turned off from it the moment Kristen Stewart opened her mouth and I have been proven wrong. Charlize Theron is making a very convincing evil queen and that's just judging from the trailers. I can only imagine what she will be like in the full film.

I think this is going to be good.

Snow White and the Huntsman promo clips begin

Along with the premiere of the full trailer tomorrow (March 19th) during The Voice.

I saw the promo clips via Xfinity, because I have Comcast, and after finally hearing Kristen Stewart's voice in a clip my excitement for this movie has gone up. I truly think it's going to be good if not great. It looks a lot better than Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. I only mention that because it was another warrior-princess type adaptation that, in my opinion, failed miserably. Plus in the Snow White and the Huntsman promos so far they have been capitalizing on the fact that it has the same producers as Alice in Wonderland.

Here is a link to the Xfinity promos -

I must admit that I am quite impressed and that I will most definitely be seeing this movie.

My week at Disneyland

Here is the full list of the rides, and whatever else, I did while at Disneyland/California Adventure this past week. I had a 5-day park hopper pass and did just about everything. The only major and semi-major things I didn't do were:

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (65 minute wait? No thanks)
California Screamin' (big roller coasters and me don't mix)
Mickey's Fun Wheel
Animation Academy
Grizzly River Run (the ride was closed all week)
A Bug's Land
Autopia (why wait 50 minutes to drive a go cart when I can drive a real car)
Matterhorn Bobsleds (the ride was closed all week)
Enchanted Tiki Room
Mark Twain Riverboat (because I did the Columbia instead)
Mad Tea Party (I fucking hate spinning)
Astro Orbitor (again, I hate spinning)
Innoventions (I did it in 2008 and thought it was lame)
Disney Monorail (I rode it every morning in 2008. There's only so much monorail you can take)

Now for the stuff I did do...


Indiana Jones Adventure (2x)
The Jungle Cruise (2x)
The Haunted Mansion (3x)
Pirates of the Caribbean (4x)
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (2x)
Space Mountain
Splash Mountain
Star Tours 3D (2x)
Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters
Captain EO 3D
Alice in Wonderland
Peter Pan's Flight
Mr. Toad's Wild Ride (2x)
Snow White's Scary Adventures (2x)
Pinocchio's Daring Journey
Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln
Main Street Cinema
Dreams Come True Fireworks (3x)
Disneyland Railroad
It's a Small World
Storybook Land Canal Boats
Sailing Ship Columbia
Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin
Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage

California Adventure:

Toy Story Midway Mania (I originally said 45-50 minutes. It was more like 60. The line takes forever but it's worth it)
Muppet Vision 3D
Turtle Talk with Crush
Character Close-Up
Sorcerer's Workshop
Soarin' Over California
Monster's Inc. Mike and Sully to the Rescue (3x)
The Little Mermaid - Ariel's Undersea Adventure (2x)
Aladdin - A Musical Spectacular
Boudin Bakery Tour

Let me just comment on this first and foremost... elecTRONica. From what I understand this is only going to be done for another month or so and I have no idea why they are stopping. This event is so much fun. If you don't know what it is, it is basically a Tron & Tron: Legacy themed party/rave in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot area of California Adventure. On the nights that they do it (Friday-Sunday) it starts around 7pm and goes until the park closes at 9pm. There is a replica of Flynn's Arcade where you can play arcade games, there are two bars serving alcoholic drinks that glow in the dark, there is a laser show with a performer they call Laserman Reconfigured, there is an opening show with dancers, the employees in Tron costumes play glow in the dark frisbee with you, and there is a DJ in the middle of it all. Your host is Eckert (similar to Zuse in Tron: Legacy) and he basically walks around and checks in on everyone from time to time. There are glow sticks, light sticks, video projections on the walls, black lights, etc.. Disney basically throws a 3 hour rave for you three nights a week and it is fucking awesome. I think I'm 10x as tired today as I should be because by the time I got back to my hotel room last night I was so hyper that I didn't sleep well. I could have gone on dancing and whatever for 2 more hours. It's kind of a shame they don't do it inside Disneyland because that park is open longer.
Here are some pictures from elecTRONica held on Friday, March 16th.

Other than that, you can probably tell Pirates of the Caribbean was a favorite of mine seeing that I rode it 4 times. I also love the Matterhorn Bobsleds but it was closed for refurbishment all week. Oh well. The Haunted Mansion and Indiana Jones are good ones, too.
I also loved the new Little Mermaid ride inside California Adventure. It's really well done. The Monsters Inc. ride is really fun as well.

I had hoped to do Fantasmic twice, but I unexpectedly saw my aunt and uncle the night I was planning on going back into the park to catch it again. Once is better than none.
I did manage to get a FastPass for World of Color and it was really an extraordinary show. What I could see of it, that is. I found the major flaw in Disney's planning of World of Color... the viewing areas. It is one thing to have standing viewing but it is another to have a bunch of flat surfaces. Especially when these surfaces are only used for World of Color. I was stuck behind about 5 rows of people and I couldn't hardly see shit. I kept having to hold up my camera and look through the screen to see what was going on in the lower half of the water screens and the lake. They had like 3 years to plan this show and they should have made the viewing areas layered like stairs so shorter people, like me, and children have a better chance of seeing all of the show. I felt sorry for the people with small kids because the employees won't let you put your kids on your shoulders during the show. Kind of a catch 22. It's nice to not have people with kids on their shoulders blocking your view, but it sucks for the kids because they can't see anything. Oh well. What I could see of it was fantastic. Definitely a must see if you do California Adventure, but make sure to do the FastPass. Go into the park as soon as the gates open and get the pass for a designated viewing areas close to the water. It guarantees you a spot if you get there an hour or two before the show.

Speaking of FastPass, use this service. I can't stress this enough, especially for the major rides. I got a FastPass for Splash Mountain and it turned what would have been a 50 minute wait into a 10 minute wait. If you try and ride any major ride (especially Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, Star Tours 3D, and Indiana Jones) after 9-10am you will be waiting in line a minimum of 40-45 minutes. The average wait time I noticed for Indiana Jones alone was 50-55 minutes on any given day of the week. The same goes for Splash Mountain and Space Mountain. The lousy thing is the rides that are popular but don't have FastPass, like Pirates of the Caribbean and Toy Story Midway Mania. The line for Pirates moves pretty quick because they can put up to like 20 people in each boat, but Toy Story takes FOREVER. I don't know why they haven't made FastPass available for that one yet. I think Tower of Terror has a FastPass option but when I saw a 65 minute wait yesterday before elecTRONica I laughed and walked back to Flynn's Arcade.

Anyway, I am a big kid at heart and I love Disneyland. It's one of my favorite places to be. I've been back home for like 6 hours and I am already missing California. My cousin is getting married in August so maybe I'll be able to go back again this year. I can only hope. =^D

Back home after a week

I went on vacation this past week to California and am back home now. I definitely have some catching up to do, like watching my anticipated Dark Shadows trailer ffs, and I'll probably make a post highlighting stuff later today. I just got home from the airport like an hour ago so I'm pretty exhausted.

And just fyi, if you ever go to California Adventure and have a chance to do elecTRONica don't pass it up. That shit is so much fun.

What I have done at Disneyland/California Adventure in 2.5 days

I am here until Friday still, too.


Indiana Jones Adventure
The Jungle Cruise
The Haunted Mansion
Pirates of the Caribbean (2x)
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
Space Mountain
Splash Mountain
Star Tours 3D
Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters
Captain EO 3D
Alice in Wonderland
Peter Pan's Flight
Mr. Toad's Wild Ride
Snow White's Scary Adventures
Pinocchio's Daring Journey
Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln
Dreams Come True Fireworks (3x)

California Adventure:

Toy Story Midway Mania (45-50 minute wait, ffs)
Muppet Vision 3D
Turtle Talk with Crush
Soarin' Over California
Monster's Inc. Mike and Sully to the Rescue
The Little Mermaid - Ariel's Undersea Adventure (2x)
Aladdin - A Musical Spectacular

So yeah, people who think that even with a 3-day Park Hopper pass you will miss out on a lot... it's not really true. If you don't fool around and do dumb things to waste time, and utilize the FastPass service, you will be fine. I have my FastPass for World of Color tonight and will try and to the Finding Nemo Submarines tomorrow. I also plan on catching elecTRONica Friday night since it's the only day I have to do it. The only thing I'm not sure about is Tower of Terror inside California Adventure just because I hate big drops like that, but I might still go on it.
If I were to recommend rides/attractions: Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Tours 3D, the Aladdin musical, Fantasmic, Toy Story Midway Mania, and the new Little Mermaid ride. Those are a definite. I got soaked on Splash Mountain because they put me in the front and I lost my green hat so I'm a little pissed at that ride still. Oh well. I am still having a blast and it's only Wednesday. =^D

On the Road trailer premieres, finally

I don't know how long this link will be active, as they were trying to keep this trailer under wraps via a ridiculous Facebook app, but it was ripped as it should have been.

It's on this channel under the title "worldprem":

You can also see it here: 

And here:


I hope we are all spared from the ridiculous about of Twihards and Kristen Stewart fans that will see this movie just because she is in it and then complain when they think it's weird. Read the original book, people. It's amazing.

Moonrise Kingdom to open Cannes 2012

As far as I can see there isn't a full list of the films screening at Cannes, but it has been confirmed that Moonrise Kingdom directed by Wes Anderson will be opening the festival.

Project X sequel being developed

Tickle me not surprised. I loved Project X, but after seeing the train wreck we all called The Hangover 2 I am a little afraid.

Chronicle sequel greenlit by Fox

Fox has hired Max Landis to write a sequel to Chronicle which was released this past February. Landis also wrote the first film.

I saw Chronicle ( and while I had mixed feelings about it I was expecting a sequel to surface at some point. The way it ended was a dead giveaway, imo. I won't say I am necessarily jumping with excitement for a Chronicle 2, but I'll probably see it.

Venom spin-off in the works

Mind you this is very preliminary, but Columbia Pictures has tapped Chronicle director Josh Trank to direct a Spiderman spin-off featuring none other than Venom, aka Eddie Brock.

Now... I must say that Venom is one of my favorite comic book characters/villains of all time. Despite how much I would love to see this happen in some way I really don't want it to. There is practically no possible way to do a movie about Venom without Spiderman being present in some way.
With that said, maybe this is their way of saying that Venom will be the villain in the next Spiderman featuring Andrew Garfield? If there is another Spiderman with Garfield after The Amazing Spiderman, that is. We all know at this point the villain in The Amazing Spiderman is The Lizard, so maybe there will be a set up for Venom in a future film that will be centered more around the villain rather than Spiderman.

I know what you all are thinking; Spiderman 3 had Venom and it was terrible. Allow me to remind you that not only did Spiderman 3 suck in general but Eddie Brock was completely slaughtered in that movie. Venom shouldn't have even been included... I don't know. We'll just have to see how this plays out.

New laptop... ftw?

I got a call yesterday informing me that it was going to be $400 to fix my laptop.

I said "fuck it" and bought a new one for $100 more. So yeah, I'm back on here regularly... that is until I go on vacation next week. Disneyland, mother fuckers!

This is why I don't watch a lot of TV. A majority of shows that air are canceled after a season or two. I learned my lesson after Pushing Daisies was canceled.

March 4th's The Walking Dead episode (Spoiler)

So I just need to get this out because I am so heartbroken about what happened tonight.

Why did Dale have to die? Honestly. I don't understand why.
He was probably the best character on the entire show and was a needed character. His struggle to keep the group together and to try and keep humanity alive was amazing to watch and tonight was when  you truly felt it. And before it really developed he was taken away.

I don't even know what to feel. I am so upset. RIP Dale... I really wanted you in season 3.

Project X

Go see this movie. I have nothing else to say except that. Go see it.

I haven't laughed this much since I saw Bridesmaids.

AMC spoils the end of The Walking Dead... intentionally?

While advertising the Blu-Ray pre-order of The Walking Dead: Season 2 (to be released in August), AMC made an oops. A big oops. Since the photo got taken down, they basically put the end of season 2 in the synopsis for the pre-order.

"...Shane's last episode..."

Way to be, AMC. Way to be. Granted this is my least favorite character and I have wanted it since the finale of Season 1, but I don't appreciate the spoiler. I mean, fuck.

John Carter

Am I the only one that thinks this movie looks retarded? I first saw a trailer for it last summer, I believe, and I didn't think it looked interesting then. After seeing more of the commercials and more trailers I still have the same feelings.

Frankenweenie trailer debuts

And it is amazing. =^D

Dark Shadows gets Vanity Fair photoshoot

And I still am confused about the fact that there still is no fucking trailer for this movie. Holy hell.

On the Road poster surfaces

I have been excited to see more about On the Road. It's already almost 2 years old and no one has even seen it yet. I loved the book so I am curious to see what they did with it and how.

There are rumors swirling around that the film is going to be shown at Cannes 2012 and it already has gotten a September release date for the UK. No word on a US release date and/or when we are getting a trailer. Hopefully it's soon.

RIP x2

Both Davy Jones of The Monkees and Conservative activist Andrew Breitbart passed this week. Both were kind of a surprise for everyone, I think.

RIP to the daydream believer.

RIP to the man who tried to open people's eyes.
