“Just when I thought you couldn’t possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this… and totally redeem yourself” If this oil painting doesn’t make you smile then you can go shove it you Debbie Downer.
Director Michael Rapaport’s Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest documentary premiered at Sundance with rave reviews. How could it not. Its an in depth look at one of the biggest and most influential hip hop groups of all time. It covers all things ATCQ, album by album to Tip vs. Phife, replete with insights from the group, Common, Busta and the Beastie Boys, archival footage, music and then some heart felt moments between the group. I really dig how Rapaport only interviewed and included relevant and real hip hop artists to participate.Here’s the unofficial, out of sync trailer that leaked earlier. It’s all you get for now.
So if you think it’s ridiculous that all the news coverage stopped yesterday and all the major networks went to the Oscar nominations then here is a list you might like. Each year Razzies.com puts out the nominees for the worst that Hollyword tries to sell us, the same day the Oscar nominations come out. Hopefully, you didn’t waste your time with these floundering flicks. It’s so saddening to see what Gerard Butler has become after 300 and why do studios keep giving M Knight Shyamalan money?

I saw this movie online a week or so ago but as soon as I saw the 12 minute length I threw it on the back burner. Yes that is how short my attention span is, a 12 minute “short film” is too long for me to sit through and watch. How fucking long should a short film be then 45 seconds? Well I finally got the strength and will power to give the movie a shot and boy was I surprised. Created by Michael Ashton with just $300. Lazy Teenage Superheroes is the opposite of Kick Ass – jerks who have super powers but only use them to help themselves and it is hilarious. Check it out if you got 12 minutes to spare you won’t be disappointed.
Here is an awesome series by Adam Sidwell dedicated to 52 (one per week of 2010) bad characters from your favorite cult movies. His great style is also pretty various, from more clean vectorial look to “painted”. So many of these not only spark up childhood memories, but I loved the characters he picked, definitely not the conventional “bad guys” you see on every other bad guy list. The best part about these is they are available for purchase right here. You can also go to Sidwell’s website found here for more information on the prints and a great interview all about the project and himself. Here are a bunch of the posters I really liked but of course I didn’t include them all so check out his site for the others. O and if you do like something act fast because they are taken down after a certain amount are purchased, enjoy.

By now I think you can come to the conclusion that Bill Murray kicks ass, and his movies are awesome as well. This weekend it has come to my attention that Jason Stratham is coming out with a new movie called, “The Mechanic” where he plays the same role he has played in the last 65 movies he’s been in. Murray on the other hand has had a wide variety of professions in his movie roles, as seen above.
1. If being chased through town, you can usually take cover in a passing St Patrick’s Day parade – at any time of the year.
2. All beds have special L-shaped top sheets that reach up to armpit level on a woman but only waist level on the man lying beside her.
3. All grocery shopping bags contain at least one stick of French bread.
4. Once applied, lipstick will never rub off – even while scuba diving.
5. The ventilation system of any building is a perfect hiding place. No one will ever think of looking for you in there and you can travel to any other part of the building without difficulty.
6. Should you wish to pass yourself off as a German officer, it will not be necessary to speak the language. A German accent will do.
7. The Eiffel Tower can be seen from any window of any building in Paris.
8. A man will show no pain while taking the most ferocious beating but will wince when a woman tries to clean his wounds.

Some people are upset with the signing of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman for the next batman movie called “Dark Knight Rises” but I think her boobs are going to look boobtastic the entire movie so I give the hire two thumbs up.
Clearly none of the X-Men are on match.com, geez guys branch out a little, there are a lot of hot babes out there in the world, and unlike us normal people, you can just fly to another country if you have an embarrassing date. Stupid X-Men with their stupid powers and not taking advantage MY GOSH.
Christian Bale’s latest performance in “The Fighter” is nothing short of amazing. I seriously recommend seeing the movie, the acting is really remarkable as Bale plays a meth addict who is Walberg’s character’s brother and trainer. But this isn’t Bale’s first time of dropping weight and totally transforming his image. Film reader Matt Ellerbrock has created an info-graphic showing how Bale has transformed himself for different roles over the years.
“With the recent release of David O. Russell’s “The Fighter,” starring Mark Walberg and Christian Bale, I’ve often found myself explaining to friends and family the incredible body transformations Christian Bale has gone through since filming “The Machinist” (2004). I typically resort to googling images of the actor to compare, and have done this enough to discover that there are some composite images from a few of Bale’s roles, but nothing comes close to showing us a more complete picture of just what he’s gone through over the last 8 years of his career. This image is my attempt to remedy that.”
