Shia LaBeouf Turns Music Video Director

Shia LaBeouf. He’s not just some kid caught up in a world war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. He’s also a sensitive music video director who likes to shoot on Super 8. Rumspringa, a Los Angeles-based group that cites influences ranging from Johnny Cash to Grandmaster Flash, is one of the 22-year-old actor’s favorite bands. Last summer, he was at one of their gigs the night he ended up getting into the car accident that wrecked his hand, temporarily endangered his role in the “Transformers” sequel, and resulted in his getting his driver’s license suspended for a year. Perhaps to keep himself out of getting into any more trouble, LaBeouf directed Rumspringa’s latest video: “Mind’s Awake.” Interestingly, the song appeared in another video late last year that focused on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

New York Governor Plans On Taxing Porn Downloaders

New York governor David Paterson plans to target those who download porn with a sales tax. Previously, Paterson had proposed a so-called “iPod tax” aimed at those downloading music, movies, and software. Now, it turns out, that plan also includes taxing porn downloaders or those who buy their porn via pay-per-view cable. Interestingly, the tax would only apply to New York smut purveyors. The planned sales tax is a whopping 4%, which may be too steep for those who are already trying to cut back on their porn diet during these lean times. And pornographers aren’t too happy about the tax, either. Steve Hirsch, the CEO of Vivid Entertainment, one of the adult industry’s biggest production companies, says: “The last thing any of us need is an additional tax.” During the recession, “These are very difficult times and nobody can afford to lose even one customer.” Or, for that matter, one masturbator.

Ed Westwick Gets Bloody for S. Darko

Behold a bloody Ed Westwick in “S. Darko.” If you’re a “Gossip Girl” fan and and a “Donnie Darko” fan, your head might explode at even the thought of watching “S. Darko,” the “Donnie Darko” sequel set for a straight-to-DVD release this April. “S. Darko” focuses on Samantha Darko (Daveigh Chase, “The Ring”), Donnie’s little sister, who takes a road trip to LA to make it big, along with her BFF Corey (Briana Evigan, “Step Up 2 The Streets”). Car problems ensue, a meteor crashes to the earth, and Samantha has dreams that suggest the end of the world is nigh. This time around, though, “Donnie Darko” director Richard Kelly isn’t helming the production: “I have absolutely no involvement with this production, nor will I ever be involved.” As for Westwick, he plays Randy, and you can check out more shots of him pullin’ a James Dean here.

90210 Threatens To Take Over Twilight Sequel

AnnaLynne McCord, Naomi Clark on “90210,” may be cast in “New Moon,” the “Twilight” sequel. Filmmakers are considering her for Heidi, a “fisher” who brings humans to the Volturi vampires to consume. McCord’s “90210″ co-star Kellan Lutz will reprise his Emmett Cullen role, as well. Too bad Heidi and Emmett don’t have any romantic scenes together. Maybe then we’d know definitively whether McCord and Lutz are dating. Dakota Fanning is in talks to play Jane, a member of the Volturi family. Unlike McCord, Fanning didn’t even have to audition. [E!

10 Chick Flick Cliches That Are NOT In “He’s Just Not That Into You”

You know what? I know that everyone and their mom is going to hate on the movie version of “He’s Just Not That Into You.” Maybe there was a reason to hate on the book — I don’t know, I didn’t read it — but this movie looks funny. For starters, I love Ginnifer Goodwin; I also have been known to stare at a cell phone for over an hour, willing it to ring (with a call from a guy I totally love); I also have spent many, many years making crap excuses for bad boy behavior because I just didn’t want to recognize that maybe he was either A) a douche or B) a perfectly fine who was just not that into me. Am I betraying women everywhere for admitting to that? I don’t think so. Anyway, in the hilarious video above, the male stars of the film explain the 10 Chick Flick Cliches that are NOT in this particular chick flick. So you could technically maybe bring a dude to it. Only I wouldn’t, if you ever want to hear from him again. Keep reading »

Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience Screens At Sundance

The latest buzz at this year’s Sundance Film Festival centers around Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming movie, “The Girlfriend Experience.” The film has gotten tons of attention since it was announced, for two reasons. It’s a peek into the exclusive, mostly unseen world of high-end escorting. And, its star is Sasha Grey, a 20-year-old adult film star. This week, “The Girlfriend Experience” made its debut at the festival, and the reviews range from positive to mixed. Defamer reports: “[A]s Soderbergh films go, it’s in the austere league of ‘Bubble’ and ‘Che,’ likely to confound the average moviegoer and irritate the eager pornhound Grey-ophile — which is kind of how we like him.” Even though it stars a porn star, the movie features no explicit sex, nor, opines Defamer, “any sexiness whatsoever.” Other critics describe “GFE” as “not-half-bad,” “a nuanced character study,” and “fascinating.” Keep reading »

Dating Drama: To Movie Date Or Not To Movie Date?

“Dinner and a movie” may sound like the most boring, clichéd date ever, but I think movie dates are hot. When you go to the movies with someone, you learn a lot about them: what kinds of films they like, whether they pay for the tickets, how they behave in the theater. You may not be talking during the movie, but there’s a lot to be said for body language. Keep reading »

Let The February Rom-Coms Begin!

Movie studios know we will eat up pure sap around Valentine’s Day. As cheesy as it’s probably going to be, I can’t wait for “He’s Just Not That Into You,” which comes out a month from tomorrow. I laughed out loud watching this new trailer, mostly because there are some valid points. Like Drew Barrymore’s character says, “I had this guy leave me a voicemail at work, so I called him at home. And then he emailed to my BlackBerry, and so I texted to his cell. And now you just have to go around checking all these different portals just to be rejected by seven different technologies. It’s exhausting!” Keep reading »
