Movies, Monsters and Marriage: Six Things You May Not Have Heard About This Week

By Cindy Davis | Seriously Random Lists | June 2, 2013 | Comments ()


Important Stuff.

6. Ethan Hawke Spoke Passionately of Kissing Angelina Jolie.

I may kick myself later for saying this, but the Jolie is growing on me. What with her recent medical ordeal and bravery, her total non-Goopyness (no recommendations on how to feed her multicultural children, nor what designer clothes in which to dress them); now I find out she was "born to make men weak" (hey, what about us chicks?). "When she kisses you, you don't know your name." Sounds delightful to me.

5. Jesse Aaron Paul Got Married (Bitches!).




Preceding our future heartbreak at this summer's "Breaking Bad" finale, our beloved Jesse married Lauren Parsekian this past Sunday; Walter White himself served as a groomsman. The couple celebrated after the ceremony with a Paris-carnival-masquerade themed party that included stilt-walkers, mimes and a magician. I hope Anna Gunn brought Albertsons' string beans.

4. May 28th Marked the Fifteenth Anniversary of Phil Hartman's Tragic Death.

Can you believe it's been fifteen years? Like John Candy, Hartman will always be missed. Remember him with one of my favorite "News Radio" clips.

3. Lou Reed Had a Liver Transplant.


All those walks on the wild side apparently took a toll. News broke that the 71 year old iconic rocker was near death and received a life-saving transplant last month. According to his wife, Laurie Anderson, Reed is recovering nicely: "He's already working and doing t'ai chi." Keep hanging on, man.

2. Three New Monsters University Clips Debuted.

Whee! MU and the upcoming Finding Dory are two follow up films I'm actually happy about. College is the perfect setting for a group of dorky, lovable monsters. Enjoy the clips, and join me for popcorn June 21st.

1. The Blade Runner Sequel Gained Traction.

Meanwhile, in much more unsettling sequel news Green Lantern writer, Michael Green (really, Ridley?) has been hired to pen the Blade Runner 2 script. Hmm, Ridley Scott is coming back to a beloved science fiction film umpteen years after the fact...again? Forgive me if my expectations are already cynical and low. Word on the street is that both Harrison Ford and Sean Young have been contacted about making appearances, and there may be a Prometheus story tie-in. Okay, now I just want to go crawl under my bed to stuff this news into the file with J.J. Abrams doing Star Wars.

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) has had to move the under-bed file to a closet after watching the last "Hannibal" episode.

Matt Smith Is Taking His Bow Ties and Leaving "Doctor Who" At Year's End | 5 Shows After Dark 6/2/13

Are you following Pajiba on Facebook or Twitter? Every time you do, Bill Murray crashes a wedding.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • NateMan

    I will not watch the Monsters University clips, on account of MI being one of my favoritist movies of all time, one of the ones that makes me blubber like a child at the end. I can't wait for MU and refuse to have any part of it spoiled for me by seeing scenes early.

  • MissAmynae

    there's a small spoiler in there, so good choice to not watch. Can. Not. Wait!!!! (that last "kitty"=pile of tears and sad)

  • manting

    Hartman was stolen from us. Think of all the Troy Maclure and Lionel Hutz lines we could be quoting today. Damn his crazy bitch wife for murdering pure comic gold.. How come Hartman gets murdered and not Carrot Top, or Dane Cook, or Jeff Foxworthy? The least talented live forever.

    I hate every ape I see, from chimpan-A to chimpan -Z
    -from planet of the apes the musical staring Troy Maclure.

  • marya

    I don't feel like logging in to downvote you, so consider this a downvote.

    You can mourn Phil Hartman without calling a mentally ill woman a bitch, or wishing violent death on a stranger. It doesn't make you cool. It makes you a callous asshole.

  • manting

    Thanks for clarifying that for me. So I shouldnt call Adam Lanza a crazy prick because he was mentally ill? I didnt know that being mentally ill absolved people from all responsibility and culpability concerning murder.

    I dont wish death on anyone - I was simply making a joke. Get over yourself

  • marya

    Oh, I realize you were trying to be funny. I guess we just disagree about whether or not you were successful.

  • e jerry powell

    Also, Charming Potato has a tot!

    That Aaron Paul wedding shot. For the life of me, I thought it was Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.

  • MissAmynae

    Please tell me we're calling the kid Charming Potater Tot.

  • e jerry powell

    Oh, why the hell not. It's not like we're going to confuse it for Ron White's kid.

  • MissAmynae

    hehehe, she's never gonna be mistaken for "Tater TAWT." I cannot order from Sonic without going full-out ron white twang.

    (actually not too far of a stretch, Mom's fam is from Waco)

  • e jerry powell

    I'm betting it still sounds Texan from people at Sonic in NEW JERSEY, even. I was horrified to learn that there are Sonics that close to New York City.

  • MissAmynae

    think they still serve coneys? eating anything in new jersey gives me the "ews"

  • e jerry powell

    I would be disappointed if they did, given the number of hot dog vendors all along the Jersey shore. The Sonic Coney would be a sorry substitute to the natives, I'd think.

  • llp

    I thought it was Paris Hilton in the header picture. Sorry, Paul wedding party.

  • anikitty

    Me too

  • e jerry powell

    Heaven forfend.

    The closer Paris Hilton gets to reproducing, the closer the earth moves to the sun.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    I got kind of a Courtney Stodden vibe from her photos minus the lucite hooker shoes.

  • e jerry powell

    Do people who aren't hookers wear Lucite shoes?

    Oh, that's right. Pimps. Pimps in the late seventies.

  • Byakko

    I'm sure this'll get mentioned eventually, but Dan Harmon is returning to Community next year.

    So, yeah. That totally happened.

  • A rich and famous person got a liver transplant? Alert the media!

  • e jerry powell

    A rich and famous person got a liver transplant and didn't tell anyone about it, unlike some other celebrities.

  • Rochelle

    The girl under the bed was creepy. So glad I didn't see that when I was little and convinced that there were monsters lurking.

  • John W

    Man I miss Phil Hartman.

  • Batesian

    All the upvotes. Truly one of the greats.

  • PDamian

    I always feel the deaths of celebrities more keenly if/when they leave young children behind. As I recall, Hartmann had two small children at the time of his death. I sincerely hope they're doing well, fifteen years on.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    The news for me was that Lou Reed is married to Laurie Anderson. That is a pairing I did not imagine. I kinda love it when great artists are married to other great artists with completely different styles.

  • e jerry powell

    They haven't made a lot of noise about it, no, but I was only a little surprised when it happened.

  • Rochelle

    I didn't know either, and now I feel slightly better about the world.
