Snooki Wants To Make Movies? We’ve Got 8 Vehicle Ideas For Her!

Wuh woh. It appears that our dear Snooki has been bit by the acting bug. It happened while she was filming a cameo scene in the Farrelly brothers’ “The Three Stooges,” along with the rest of the “Jersey Shore” cast. “I was like, ‘Dude! I love this!’” she explains. “I definitely wanna do, like, comedy or something.” I hope that all the studios out there are listening!

Now, of course, someone could give Snooki a bit part in the next “Piranha 3D” or a remake of “Goodfellas.” But we really think she could be a leading lady. After the jump, some movie vehicles we would like to propose for Snooks. Keep reading »

A “Saved By The Bell”/”Final Destination 5″ Mash-Up

In my opinion, Miles Fisher’s video for “New Romance” is the 2011 answer to Weezer’s “Buddy Holly.” But warning: it is definitely not for the faint of heart. The concept here is that Miles and his “Final Destination 5″ co-stars step into the neon Keds of Zack Morris, AC Slater, Kelly Kapowsi, Jessie Spano, and the rest of the “Saved By The Bell” crew. But in “Final Destination,” these kids can’t outrun death and they can’t here either. One by one, they meet extremely gruesome ends. Keep reading »

Zoe Saldana Got The Literal Blues After The Release Of “Avatar”

“The year after ‘Avatar’ was just emotionally overwhelming. I was traveling all over the world, waking up in different time zones. Your body gets exhausted, and by the end of the year I just collapsed … I was sitting in my hotel room, and I couldn’t stop crying. I couldn’t stay awake. I must have slept for an entire month.It took me the rest of the year, even as I was working and shooting ‘Colombiana,’ to pick myself up.”

Zoe Saldana tells Latina magazine that the mega success of “Avatar” didn’t bring her happiness, and in fact she suffered from serious depression in the year after its release. But don’t worry, she feels much better now. Her new movie comes out soon and she’s engaged to actor Keith Britton. Just goes to show that getting your dream is more emotionally complex than you ever realized. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

A Second “Breaking Dawn” Cover For Entertainment Weekly

It’s t-minus three months until “Breaking Dawn” arrives in theaters, and the flick has landed its second Entertainment Weekly cover. I guess the first one sold like hotcakes? For the mag’s fall movie preview, they selected what appears to be a still from the movie, with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart frolicking in a waterfall. And they both look hawt.

After the jump, another new image from the movie. Keep reading »

Racist Or Raving: What Critics Are Saying About “The Help”

Unavoidable this week: everybody going coo-coo-bananas about “The Help,” which opened in theaters last night. “The Help” is based on Kathryn Stockett’s novel of the same title, which tells the story of Skeeter, a young white woman who gets a job writing for her local newspaper in a small Mississippi town, and Aibileen, a black maid who works for one of Skeeter’s childhood friends. Skeeter returned from college to find all the friends she grew up with are married with children and employers to black “help,” who are second-class citizens in 1960′s Jackson, Mississippi. The story follows Skeeter as she interviews Aibileen and other black maids for a secret book project that exposes the ugly day-to-day racism in Jackson’s domestic life to the rest of the world.

Some critics, both armchair and professional, say the new flick starring Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Allison Janney is a white-washed, even racist version of the civil rights movement that praises a white woman as the savior of the poor black folks. (Cough “The Blind Side” cough.) They ask why Hollywood makes films about civil rights through the lens of white people, instead of giving due credit to the African-Americans who fought for their rights. And that is certainly a worthy question to ask.

Mandy Moore Is A Masturbating Swinger In New Sex Comedy

Hello. Here’s a side of Mandy Moore we haven’t seen: raunchy sex comedy star. She stars in the upcoming comedy, “Swinging With The Finkels,” as a wife who suggests she and her husband, played by Martin Freeman (or Dr. Watson on “Sherlock,” for all you BBC nerds), “see another couple” as a way to spice up their marriage. This looks pretty funny. Especially the part where she bonks Jerry Stiller in the crotch with a vibrator. It’s already debuted in England, apparently, so ask your friend who lives in London how it is. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Justin Timberlake: Next Action Hero

Woo hoo! The trailer for “In Time,” the sci fi thriller starring Justin Timberlake, is out. The concept is this: in a dystopian future, people die at age 25. However, the rich can buy more time while the poor simply have their clocks wind down. Wait, is that Pete Campbell from “Mad Men“? How creepy is it when he introduces his mother-in-law, his wife, and his daughter and they all three look exactly the same age? But getting back to the story, when Justin’s character is accused of murder, he kidnaps the daughter, Amanda Seyfried, and holds her hostage lest his time run out. And—yee haw—they end up falling for each other. And maybe getting it on in the shower? Yeah, I am a little too excited for this movie. How about you? Keep reading »

Soapbox: Why Is Everyone Going Crazy Over “Bellflower”?

Back in 2004, I was sent to review a little movie called “Sideways.” It was the story of two 40-something dudes embarking on a wine-tasting trip, one of them hoping for a last fling before he gets married. The Pinot Noir talk in the movie made me roll my eyes, so hard I almost got a headache. I also fell asleep in the middle. I ended up giving the flick a blah review. So imagine my surprise when other reviews started coming in and everyone loved it. It went on to win the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. The whole experience left me scratching my head and thinking, Did I miss something?

I’m having the same experience with “Bellflower,” an indie movie that made a big splash at Sundance last spring and that was just released in theaters on Friday. Currently, the movie’s rating on Metascore is 74—very high. Critics from The Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, and The New York Times have given it raves. Keep reading »
