Another Geek Gets The Hollywood Treatment

Because geeks have ruled the country for the last few years, movies seem to be getting nerdier, as well (except all the nerds are portrayed by Hollywood hunks, of course). Leonardo DiCaprio will play the part of Nolan Bushnell, who founded Atari and later Chuck E. Cheese, in the upcoming movie Atari. Cannot wait for this one. [Hollywood Newsroom] Keep reading »

Are Rape Scenes Really “Sex” Scenes?

Nerve.com and the Independent Film Channel teamed up to produce a list of “The 50 Worst Sex Scenes In Cinema”, and while the list is seriously impressive and I found myself laughing out loud remembering the terribleness of the love scene in Howard The Duck, I also noticed that a few of the chosen scenes featured rape. There’s Irréversible, Hollowman, and Crank (well, that one is described as “rape-esque”). Obviously, this is a “worst” list, not a “best” list so it’s not like the editors are applauding the sexiness of these scenes, but I think it’s kind of weird to consider a rape scene (like the incredibly disturbing one in Irréversible) as a sex scene at all. Anyway, what do you all think? [Oh, and FYI, #1 is that god awful butter scene in Last Tango In Paris.) [IFC.com -- A few of the images and all of the videos are NSFW] Keep reading »

The Daily Squeeze: Carla Bruni-Sarkozy’s Lovers, Facebook Changes, And Chicago Bulls’ Garters

  • On her new album, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy sings of 30 lovers and compares a man to heroin from Afghanistan and Colombian cocaine. She says she wrote the songs before meeting husband Nicholas, but it’s kind of nice that she’s keepin’ things real, even as the first lady. Also, on the album cover, her name is Carla Bruni, not Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. [Reuters]

    Christina Aguilera As Samantha Jones: “Ladies, I’m A Dude…”

    This is sort of an old clip, from an episode of Saturday Night Live around the time that Sex and the City went off the air, but I was out to dinner with friends last night and a huge group of them hadn’t seen it — and neither had our Catherine. In the clip, which I swear is one of the best in SNL‘s history, Christina Aguilera does a dead-on impression of SATC‘s Samantha. Girlfriend could be an actress, I swear. Keep reading »

    White Lies In That Movie

    Movies are mostly made up, unless they’re documentaries. Certainly, some are “historical fiction” and include references to real places and events, but really, even if a movie isn’t an historical one, like Saving Private Ryan or something, it’s annoying when details aren’t quite right. For example, in Sex and the City, Carrie reads a book called Love Letters from Great Men, and it’s not even as though you would only know the title if you paused the DVD. She says the title out loud, maybe even several times, and the book doesn’t even exist. The nice folks at the New York Public Library did put together a list of similar options, though. Speaking of the library, it seems that you can’t really get married there. The reception could be held there, but not the ceremony. And even that would cost at least $50,000.

    Jerry Hall Auctions Off Her Jagger Whites

    Jerry Hall, the supermodel from Texas that married Mick Jagger in 1990, has dumped more than just the frontman of the Rolling Stones. Hall is auctioning off her bridal dress, as well as the wedding gift he gave her, an embroidered Japanese kimono, for a modest $600-a-piece. While she’s looking to clean out her closet and donate the proceeds to homeless charity Emmaus, she has kept the prices cheaper than Jagger’s affairs! [Daily Mail]
