Let's all take a moment to wish "Avatar" architect James Cameron a big old happy 56th birthday today. Somewhere in the midst of prepping his "Avatar" novel, exec producing Guillermo del Toro's "At the Mountains of Madness" and any number of other movie-related happenings, he's found the time to fly off to Russia's Lake Baikal -- the deepest freshwater lake in the word -- where he'll spend the day at around 900 fathoms. Unless the weather is off, in which case he will "be getting drunk with the Russian crew in the port."
I like Cameron's style.
Now I'm left wondering what the visionary filmmaker will do to top this epic freshwater birthday dive in years to come. You all know what that means, right? It's list time! Read More...
Today is Friday the 13th, which means anything that can go wrong will go wrong — black is white, up is down, pigs can fly, and all of these oddities will culminate in your demise in an epic "Final Destination" inspired display of gory awfulness.
Alright, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration. But for the superstitious readers out there, you may want to consider being a little bit extra careful on this supposedly unlucky day. For example, while we would rarely encourage you to take cues from your favorite action heroes and act in dangerous and brash fashion, today is one day where you really don't want to step out of line — again, if you believe in superstition, that is.
So, in the name of speaking to that crowd, we're offering a little bit of advice on what not to do on Friday the 13th based on our horror movie watching experience. Check out our thoughts past the jump! Read More...
Boxing, wrestling and the UFC aren't the only sports where you'll find people kicking the ever-loving tar out of each other. In fact, even in a game as mild-mannered as baseball, players can come to blows. Look no further than last night's heated altercation between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Cincinnati Reds during the first inning of their game, when Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips' venomous words towards the Cardinals escalated into a big — and stupid — seven minute brawl.
But fights have a tendency to escalate. What starts out as an intimate one-on-one display of dominance quickly evolves into an all-out brawl with several fists flying from all directions. Really, the Cards and Reds brawl could have escalated a whole lot worse — just check out some of these horribly escalated fictional fights for further proof! Read More...
"Lost" and Weezer supporters may not have been the most natural bed fellows in the past, but the two sets of fans certainly have something in common now — "Hurley," Weezer's upcoming album. With a picture of actor Jorge Garcia's face plastered on the album cover, the new Weezer album has nothing to do with "Lost" other than the name and likeness of the unlucky lottery winner.
As both a music lover and a big "Lost" fan — yes, still — I started thinking about some other musicians who could find inspiration in the "Lost" mythology for their next album. After the jump, check out some suggestions for "Lost"-inspired albums! Read More...
In what is perhaps the most bizarre news twist of the week, JetBlue flight attendant Stephen Slater left work yesterday in grand fashion. After being harassed by an unruly passenger, Slater got on the plane's public address system, spewed some profanity of his own and disembarked via the aircraft's emergency slide after reportedly grabbing some beer from the galley. Slater was of course arrested for his actions, but as anyone who has worked in a service position knows, this was a downright heroic move. Curious what could have compelled him to cross over from thinking about no long suffering fools to making the conscious choice to stop suffering fools, we took a look at Slater's in-flight movies playlist*. And based on his viewing habits... well... it's no wonder he did what most of us will only ever fantasize doing. Find the picks after the jump.
* - No, we didn't ACTUALLY see his in-flight movie playlist. This is all a joke. Read More...
Good morning, everyone. I'm here with an important message from Will Ferrell, star of "The Other Guys" and the new spokesperson for New York's Finest. In the below video he expresses the importance of joining up to Serve and Protect. It's a valuable public service, so long as you're brave enough to face the worst the city can throw at you day in, day out. Just beware kiddies-- while the language isn't gratuitous, a couple of F-bombs put this squarely in the Not Safe For Work territory.
First, let me start by thanking Ain't It Cool News for bringing a little bit of sunshine to my morning. I pointed my browser at AICN this morning and noticed a headline which spoke of a Lando Calrissian-centered blaxploitation film, "Blackstar Warrior."
Of course I clicked. How could I not? The trailer I discovered there -- which apparently screened at San Diego Comic-Con last month -- stars Leonard Roberts in the role made famous by Billy Dee Williams. I immediately recognized Roberts' smirk from "Heroes" (he was phase-shifter D.L.), but some might also know him from an arc he had on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." I recognize the Han Solo actor, but I can't recall his name.
The spoof isn't quite as self-aware as last year's "Black Dynamite"; it's played pretty straight for the most part. It's fun though, and if this thing were actually developed into a feature-length film (don't hold your breath), I'd be there opening day. Check out the trailer after the jump. There's also a three-part mockumentary. Wacky stuff. Happy Monday! Read More...

Borderline criminal even (we're looking at you, Mark).
