Shia Not New Indy, George Lucas Insists

In an apparent turnaround from his previous insinuation that Shia LaBeouf’s character Mutt from Indy IV might take over the franchise, George Lucas now insists that is not the way it’s going to go down.

“No no no no, dear heavens no, no no no no no no,” Lucas was reported to have said.

He also reportedly said,

“No no no no no no no no golly no.”

Meanwhile, LaBeouf continues to recover from a car accident that left his fingers crushed and his arm temporarily out-of-commission:

We’re pulling for you, Shia.

Michael Moore Parody “An American Carol”

David Zucker, best known for the movies Airplane and Top Secret, has a new wacky comedy coming out in October: “An American Carol.” Just in time for the last month of Election Madness, this politically-topical film features a parody of filmmaker Michael Moore — named Michael Malone — who has to be taught the real meaning of patriotism by the ghosts of America’s most famous personages.

But is this film going to be a little extreme? Here is a description of one scene in the film:

In a climactic scene, Moore’s stand-in (here named “Michael Malone”) finds political clarity at the smoking ruins of the World Trade Center while the admonishing ghost of George Washington (played by Jon Voight) hovers nearby.”

Is this being played for laughs? Is it just a pointed partisan attack on Moore in the guise of a wacky comedy movie? Will the 911 scene be considered in bad taste?

We’ll see.

Postscript: Playing the fake Michael Moore in the film is Kevin Farley — brother of the late Chris Farley.

Trailer: Oliver Stone’s Bush Biopic “W”

I was a big fan of Oliver Stone’s earlier stuff like “Platoon” and “JFK,” so I’m wondering how this film’ll be. Initial impression: the way it’s presented in this trailer, it’s like a stoner from an 80′s comedy eventually became president of the United States.

American Psycho Movie Quotes

“Not quite blonde, are we? More of a dirty blonde.”

“I have all the characteristics of a human being: blood, flesh, skin, hair; but not a single, clear, identifiable emotion, except for greed and disgust. Something horrible is happening inside of me and I don’t know why. My nightly bloodlust has overflown into my days. I feel lethal, on the verge of frenzy. I think my mask of sanity is about to slip.”

“Hey, I’m a child of divorce, gimme a break!”

“There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable… I simply am not there.”

“I don’t want to get you drunk, but, ah, that’s a very fine Chardonnay you’re not drinking.”

“I live in the American Gardens Building on W. 81st Street on the 11th floor. My name is Patrick Bateman. I’m 27 years old. I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy I’ll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.”

“Pumpkin, you’re dating an asshole.”

“I know that your friends are my friends and, uh… I thought about that. You can have ‘em.”

“In ’87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is “Hip to be Square”, a song so catchy, most people probably don’t listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it’s not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it’s also a personal statement about the band itself.”

“TRY GETTING A RESERVATION AT DORSIA NOW YOU FUCKING STUPID BASTARD! YOU, FUCKING BASTARD!”

“Do you like Phil Collins? I’ve been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn’t understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins’ presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group’s undisputed masterpiece. It’s an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe.”

“I guess you could say I just want to have a meaningful relationship with someone special.”

“So, if you get back tomorrow, I may show up at Harry’s Bar, so you know — keep your eyes open.”

Watch Streaming Netflix On Your XBox 360!

Just another reason for my boyfriend to hurry up and get that Xbox 360 — as if Rock Band wasn’t enough.

Microsoft has just announced a deal that will allow Xbox 360 Live Gold users to play streaming video from their Netflix queues for no extra charge. They will also be able to share and watch the movies with the rest of their friends in their Live party.

I think this is rather big news — and a big partnership. Just another step towards what I envision to be the future, one device for all media and uses — a combo game player/computer/TV/phone/media center.

Twenty Pictures Of 80s Style Big Hair

Hmmm…I’m always suspicious of these articles that “announce” some sort of trend is currently in — or back in style. But, this article claims that “big hair” — the 80′s style manes made popular by the chicks on Dynasty and the dudes in Motley Crue — are back.

Just in case you would like to jump on the fashion bandwagon, here are 20 pictures of 80s ( and 90s!) big hair.
