Don't Worry, We'll Get to the New Catching Fire Portraits. But First Let's Discuss Oprah's "Tig Ol' Bitties"
If that sophomoric headline intrigues or upsets you, please take it up with actor, and ex-best friend of Tony Stark, Terrence Howard. He’s co-starring with the Oprah Winfrey and it seems their love scene was quite the experience. One wonders if the set was cold as a witch’s teat. (Uproxx)
While we’re on the subject of the unnecessarily offensive, it seems like award-winning author and noted anti-gay bigot Orson Scott Card just can’t catch a break. I’m sure he’s crying crocodile tears as his butler rolls him around in a big pile of money he got for finally agreeing to an Ender’s Game movie. (Comics Alliance)
Ugh. Let’s wash that filth down with this, well, radass poster for The Beasts of the Southern Wild. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but this and everything involving star Quvenzhané Wallis and the Oscars makes me regret that decision. (Super Punch)
Most fans of Dan Harmon’s “Community” know that the always-refreshing Bill Murray was the ultimate dream to play Joel “Jeff Winger” McHale’s estranged papa. Since that can never be — though James Brolin is admittedly no slouch — here are 10 other TV shows Bill Murray could guest star in. My favorite is “Happy Endings” because I’m a glutton for dashed hopes. (WG)
Speaking of watching your favorite things crushed by the weight of unrealistic expectations, film critic David Denby thinks Hollywood is pretty determined to “murder” The Movies. He’s not exactly wrong, but I wish he’d used all that space discussing more recent examples of great movies that studios use to clamor for instead of focusing on Hollywood’s distant past. No, Avatar does not count. (TNR)
Okay, enough stalling, let’s get to those Catching Fire character portraits, shall we? This is Pajiba Love, after all, and there’s nothing I love about The Hunger Games more than Elizabeth Banks as Effie. It’s only mostly ironic, too.
And here’s Haymitch, Cinna, and Caesar for good measure. Apparently, more were released every four hours starting at some point yesterday afternoon. So, by now, you can probably see all of them. How’s the future up then? (/Film)
Hey, the future and the distant past (of a galaxy far, far away)? That sounds familiar…
An intrepid individual has done the research and created an infographic determining which side ultimately wins in the interminable Star Wars vs. Star Trek debate. It’s a logical conclusion, but where’s the heart, you green blooded Vulcan? (TrekNews)
And now, it’s video time! It’s a brief teaser for LiquidTV’s upcoming project with Jim Mahfood, comic artist and illustrator probably best known for his work on Clerks: The Comic Book. There will also be a short film from Johnny the Homicidal Maniac and “Invader Zim” creator, Johnen Vasquez. However, that project will feature his comic creation that shares a name with that word that begins with “Squ” and ends with “ee” that we can’t say anymore, so it’s probably best there isn’t a video for that yet. Enjoy!
