King of the nerds Patton Oswalt has an upcoming guest spot on an episode of "Parks and Recreation" where he plays a Pawnee citizen who filibusters a city council meeting in order to hold up a piece of legislation.
The producers give Oswalt the freedom to talk about whatever he wanted during the extended speech, so he went with his heart and made a 9-minute pitch for J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII."
But it's not that simple. As a hardcore sci-fi geek, Oswalt seized upon the opportunity to bring in characters from another recent Disney acquisition, the Marvel universe. How will Tony Stark and Thanos play into the continuation of the "Star Wars" saga? You'll have to click past the jump to find out.
There is only one man who can accept the MTV Movie Awards' inaugural Comedic Genius Award. But he is a man of many names: Ricky Bobby, Frank the Tank, Alex Trebek and Mugatu, to name just a few. The one he's most often credited as is Will Ferrell, "Saturday Night Live" legend and star of such hits as "Anchorman" and the forthcoming "Anchorman: The Legend Continues."
Boiling down Ferrell's funniest moments to five is a nearly impossible challenge, but it's one we're happy to rise to. Get your jazz flutes ready and join us as we dive into the award winner's five most comedically genius moments.
5. The Tragic Fall of Mustafa: In which he is still alive ... just very, very badly burned.
Though we're still mourning the loss of our beautiful "30 Rock," we'll always have seven wonderful seasons of comedy to watch on Netflix any time we're sad. The buried jokes and refernces on "30 Rock" make a rewatching marathons and supercuts, like the one Film.com just put together, so enjoyable.
For this supercut, Film.com grabbed every movie reference made during the seven seasons of "30 Rock," and if you know anything about the tale of Liz Lemon, you know there are a lot of them, 16 minutes of them, in fact.
Try not to watch every second of the hilarity, and then celebrate 16 minutes well spent with a perfectly executed Chewbacca sound.
It seems like a simple enough concept, but it took this brave found footage video from Joel and Jared Erickson (via io9) to teach us the hard lesson that children should never, ever have access to lightsabers.
The video was filmed with a few different camera phones and shows what happens when a toddler gets a hold of a Jedi's greatest weapon. This Sith lord in the making, Darth Baby, as the video title indicates, makes things very difficult for the more responsible members of the household, who have to get his lightsaber away from him.
Before you see "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" in theaters this weekend, there's a little something you should know about the beloved 1980s G.I. Joe cartoon. Sure, it's about an elite force of American soldiers taking on the evil terrorism of Cobra. But for the most part, the show was next level crazy. The only show that could potentially out-crazy "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" is "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe," and that series isn't even set on Earth.
For a show ostensibly about real American heroes, "G.I. Joe" brought the bonkers. Narrowing the series' craziest episodes down was a hard task (almost as hard as the genetic pillaging Cobra undertook to create their master, Serpentor). Here are the five craziest episodes of "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero."
Rapper Riff Raff has not exactly remained quiet about the fact that he thinks James Franco ripped off his persona for the role of Alien in "Spring Breakers." But has Riff Raff actually seen Harmony Korine's indie hit?
Well, now he has.
The folks over at Next Movie did the world a favor and got Riff Raff to "review" "Spring Breakers" for them. The result is both unexpected and totally predictable.
Riff Raff claims that Franco bought a Riff Raff costume at the store and just put it on for "Spring Breakers," and then he proceeds to challenge the actor in a series of physical competitions to see which one of them is more legit.
We here at MTV Movies Blog — like you, we're sure — are still coping with the tragedy of the first's Death Star's destruction. Things felt so secure until that Rebel Alliance came an blew everything up, but thinking back on those events, things still don't seem to fit.
A new documentary, "Luke's Change: An Inside Job," finally takes a look at the cold hard facts of the Death Star's destruction and uses them to make wild speculations about the Skywalker family's involvement in the attack.
There's a little too much coincidence going on here for our taste, and we'd like to thank io9 for bring this conspiracy to our attention.
The truth is out there. (Wait, no, that's "The X-Files.")
But thanks to The Playlist, we've stumbled across a new video of the Gos from "The Mickey Mouse Club" where he takes us on a tour of his hometown Cornwall, Ontario.
The trip is full of fun, surprises, and most importantly, lessons to learn. We figured that with so much truth coming at us from a pint-size Gosling, a cheat sheet would be helpful, so this is everything we learned on our trip to Cornwall.
