Someone finally stood up in Twitter-Wood Tuesday to counter Brett Ratner's rave reviews of "Catfish." You'll have to read on down to find out who it was, but the Monday-Tuesday window in our feed turned out to be a popular one for the critics to show up.

The first episode of the new "Hawaii Five-0" series caught some attention and at least one comparison to "Con Air," while Bristol Palin had fellow flyers clamoring to watch "Dancing With the Stars" at the airport where Patton Oswalt was hanging out. Check out what he thought about that, who wished Bill Murray a happy birthday and who's been getting prepped in case they ever make a Shake Weight movie after the jump.

Long before "Resident Evil: Afterlife" was even being pitched, the first video game etched some ridiculous lines and voice acting into its players' memories. MTV Multiplayer Editor Russ Frushtick decided to see how well the latest film's seasoned cast members could do reading lines such as "It might be handy if you, the Master of Unlocking, take it with you," and try as they might, Milla Jovovich, Boris Kodjoe and Ali Larter weren't able to save them. The results were hilarious, however.

We at the MTV blogs looked at the exercise as a history lesson for the thespians, though. They all seemed to get into the parts, and you definitely can't knock them for a lack of energy. Milla Jovovich might even be able to take over all of Capcom's voice-acting duties the next time they decide to make a game sequel.

Until then, witness her spirited attempt to nail the line "Whoa, this hall is dangerous!" in the video clip above, and I think you can tell that she's completely internalized what it's like to be trapped in a building full of undead biohazard creatures roaming around trying to gut her.

Meanwhile, I'd actually love to see an edition made available of first "RE" with the part of Barry Burton recast using Kodjoe. Give a listen to his execution of the hallway warning, and I think you'll agree.

What do you think of the "Resident Evil: Afterlife" cast's attempts to save the first game's script? Let us know in the comments and on Twitter!

Rachel Weisz has signed up to star in a new take on Austrian dramtist Arthur Schnitzler's play "Reigen." "360" will be a psychosexual drama about a chain of partners (which only bears a metaphorical resemblance to "Human Centipede" when you describe it in exactly the wrong way) and re-team Weisz with director Fernando Meirelles, who she previously worked with in "The Constant Gardner," according to a Deadline report.

If "360" follows in the footsteps of "Reigen" and other previous adaptations, Weisz will be a part of a story about couples whose stories are edited together in sequence as the film swaps one partner for another until a full circle of relationships emerges. Read More...

Clint Mansell fans didn't have to decipher any hidden messages to feel Duncan Jones' enthusiasm in message he posted about "Source Code" yesterday. As was revealed in Twitter-Wood, the "Moon" soundtrack composer and director will team up once more to work on Jones' film about a soldier (Jake Gyllenhaal) who wakes up in the body of a commuter and has to solve the mystery behind a train explosion.

"Have a bloody fantastic bit of 'Source Code' news," Jones wrote on his Twitter account. "Super star Clint Mansell WILL be scoring the film. You have no idea how relieved I am."

Mansell earned a lot of great critical attention for "Moon," just as he did on "Requiem for a Dream" and Darren Aronofsky's "The Fountain." Coming along for Jones' sophomore full-length effort, Mansell should be a welcome asset to the project, which also has Vera Farmiga and Michelle Monaghan in its cast. Read More...

Brett Ratner hasn't been quiet in the past about his enthusiasm for the new film "Catfish," but you probably didn't know how many times he's watched it. I won't tell you whether to believe him or not but you can find out what he claimed yesterday on his Twitter account.

In other topics, Paris Hilton made this news this morning after reaching a plea deal in her Las Vegas cocaine case. Brian Lynch identified who he thinks the lucky ones are in the whole story. His explanation, as well as 50 Cent's story of why he named his dog Oprah Winfrey and some hints about the upcoming Halloween episode of "Community" await you below.

"The Social Network" doesn't represent the first time writer Aaron Sorkin has tackled a script about cutthroat politics and drama behind the media and invention. His screenplay-turned-stage-play "The Farnsworth Invention" explored winners and losers who emerged from the creation of the television, and his short-lived TV series "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" looked at the anatomy of a major network's sketch comedy show. This time, he's telling the tale of Facebook with director David Fincher, but Fincher thinks of the movie as a nuanced take on adolescent tales like "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "The Breakfast Club."

Fincher jokingly referred to "The Social Network" as "the 'Citizen Kane' of John Hughes movies," according to a piece from New York Magazine. That's a dissonant pairing of genres to connect, but in the context of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's life, the personal story that Orson Welles told in his cinematic masterpiece and the ego-driven wish-fulfillment that often propelled John Hughes' characters, it makes a lot of sense.

If you've had long enough to pick apart the latest "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1" TV spot, sit tight because Warner Bros. hopes to have a newly edited set of clips ready to show you this week. Our last look at the film pretty much amounted to a Death Eater death march all over Harry, Ron and Hermione, and given what we know about the contents of the series' final book (don't worry, no spoilers here), we don't expect to see any lighter moments when a new trailer hits Wednesday, September 22.

The forecast for the new trailer comes straight from WB sources speaking to ComingSoon.net. The trailer rollout thus far as been right on schedule leading up to the film's November 19 release date, this one should keep their tease mojo pumping. Read More...

Twitter-Wood got so enthusiastic today that I had to censor a couple of f-bombs out. Patton Oswalt, for instance ran into "Eastbound and Down" star Danny McBride, while Richard Kelly got a little high off learning that John Stewart and Stephen Colbert would be holding competing rallies in Washington, D.C.

Oswalt even posted a picture to prove it, as did James Gunn from the "Super" premiere, Sofia Vergara from the "Modern Family" set and Donald Glover from a Blu-ray rack. You can check out those shots down below along with Conan O'Brien's thoughts for Yom Kippur and one actors dream of getting onto "The Real World."

David Fincher's "The Social Network" has been getting some solid buzz around the Toronto International Film Festival, Richard Kelly has decided to contribute via his Twitter account. In fact, there was a lot to be excited about in the feed today. 50 Cent got cozy with a friend in a pic from the recording studio, a couple of "Eclipse" actress discovered a surprising snack-related coincidence in their lives and "Weird Al" Yankovic questioned a quote from Lindsay Lohan.

You'll find each of those tweets after the jump along with an old school Star Trek pictures from Leonard Nimoy and Hank Azaria's expectations for "Machete."

Twitter-Wood's been lively today, and the Report has pictures to prove it. Actress Ana de la Reguera shared a look at her makeup job for Jon Favreau's "Cowboys and Aliens," while Jim Gaffigan hung out with Zach Galifianakis and "Weird Al" Yankovic found a knife you probably didn't expect to see today.

The folks behind the scenes at Twitter pulled off a new look for their site, and Alyssa Milano offered a critique. Meanwhile, the changes haven't been enough to scare newcomer Steve Martin, who posted a quick banjo story. Find out out more about that down below.
