A Preview: The American

"You can pay for school, but you can't buy class."
Clooney. George Clooney. Perhaps the very definition of cool. Of suave. Of class. 3 Oscar nod's in 4 years, one win. And now he's back, and walking in Anton Corbijn's world in The American. I gotta tell you guys, this dude invokes the golden age, I've said that before, I'll say it now, I'll say it again later. There are few men in Hollywood that can match what he can bring to the table without trying to act. It rolls off his tongue, his fingertips, pumps out his pours.(Actor's crush) 

But wait! There's more!

'Black Swan' Trailer And Poster Drops

When I heard abouth is project last year--this project being directed by Darren Aronofsky with stars Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel and even Winona Ryder in a psycho-thriller about ballerinas in NYC--I was bought and paid for right there.

The trailer is no disappointment as far as what I wanted. This director is one of the best actor's directors around. He knows how to grab the best performances out of his actor's. If they're a weaker actor, watch them in his stuff, then watch them in something else. Points proven.

But wait! There's more!

Rooney Mara Cast As Lisbeth Salander In 'Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' Remake

The months long search is over,after beating several top-tier actresses, names I've heard were Kristen-I-Hate-My-Life-Stewart, Carey Mulligan, Megan Fox, and this chick. But thank God, none of those are the case. Rooney Mara, sister of Kate Mara, has been officially cast as the newest chick badass this side of the hemisphere--Lisbeth Salander, in the David Fincher directed The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. . Well, the other side too, but we stole it of course, Sweden, France, China/Japan and England must really hate us between robbing the stars and crew and remaking their movies.

With a limited but growing filmography she is standing to be truly thrust into the light with this one suckas. She's already been there and back with Finch on The Social Network. It's a shame he made that and gave Facebook the coolest points it's ever received.

But Wait! There's more!

'Skyline' Trailer Drops

What is this and where did it come from? A lot of people are playing catch up right now because this wasn't exactly on the map. The directors, The Brothers Strause, Greg and Colin,  are responsible for the mega-disaster flick, Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem. The good news it, these guys learned from their mistakes and got their act together.

All the while working on shit like this, for the special effects department: 300, X-Men: The Last Stand, Fantastic Four, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, and The Day After Tomorrow, for which Greg won a British Academy Award (BAFTA). They even worked on Avatar, if you've heard of that one.

But wait! There's more!

Inception's Plot From Scrooge McDuck?

Uncle Scrooge’s The Dream Of A Lifetime! is a two part 26-page comic book published back in May '04. The whole thing is online here for freezo niggas. A /film reader found this out and let them know about it. I hate anything baring any kind of resemblance to my work. I might jump off a bridge if this happened to me, or just laugh about it. Idk, maybe both.

Hmm... Any thoughts on this most uncanny comic book adventure?

Munki out.

College Humor Rips Apart 'Inception' In Minutes

Via /Film from College Humor, the next vid to lampoon a movie off their site is out. But Inception? I guess bashing Nolan's plot clarity all started with The Dark Knight, when people claimed to see plot holes in the script, people like this guy were pretty fed up with TDK being hailed for a best pic nom. (BTW, Texas first semester I found that script with a few buddies and we all laughed til we peed the entire time we read the thing) Despite how amazing the film was and how much shit entered their pants during their wonderful theater experience, people were sour?

Well, we come full circle to Nolan again now with his follow up and ten-year-old script, Inception. Idk, yeah it's sort funny, but are we to believe these guys have actually ripped out the entire foundation of the film from one plot point to the next? I'm not exactly here to say, but they try very hard to sway you from thinking this film has any artistic merit at all. That's a shame. 

BTW, this is chalk-full of spoilers.

Yeah... Whatev. Made their points.

Munki out.

Batman & Superman Know How Their Gay

We've all seen the infamous completely improvised scene from 40 Year Old Virgin, with Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd going totally from their heads with the stuff. Out of all the tributes on Youtube to this scene, I like this one the best. The angle of them sitting side by side isn't actually in that apt. They had to cut out the wall with the TV on it and pick up the shots showing them actually playing that game later, which is also inserted video game footage.

Anyway, without further adieu...

I know, I'm damned awesome for finding this. Hold your applause ladies and gentleman, just doing ma jobbie.

Munki out.
