Oh right. The totally irrelevant awards show that ignored True Grit and nominated The Tourist and Burlesque—twice each—happened.

I doubt this shit is for real. I genuinely hope it isn’t. But the internets are touting this as the first official pic of the cast from X-Men: First Class.

With the clip at the link, Drive Angry 3D makes no bones about what it is. Even though director Patrick Lussier directed the hated-by-me My Bloody Valentine, I’ll still probably check this out. Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Marla's leaving ALL of you for Joseph Gordon-Levitt!

That’s right! Expect tomorrow’s review of Inception to go something like this: OMG SQUEE MARLA + JGL=TRU LUV 4EVS!!!!!!!!!!!! 

In the meantime, le scoope! 

  

The first full cast pic of The Walking Dead is so damned awesome, I can scarcely stand it. You can read the lineup of writers and directors for each episode at the link.

His mother died of an aneurism when he was young, but he lives with a loving and attentive father. He’s got a couple of friends, a curly moptop, no special powers and no all-consuming lust for vengeance. Dave’s understated voice-over tells us early on not to expect a lot of melodrama from his origin story: “Like most people my age, I just existed.” Continue reading
