Eat Something Sweet, Save The World
I know I said we were done with the Film Alphabet game, folks. But I lied. The artist has done one for the aughts (2000s) and though it’ll be the easiest one yet, I hope you’ll still enjoy playing. (Laughing Squid)
While I agree with the premise of this list (read the book before the movie comes out this year), there are a lot of authors here you can go ahead and skip. Yup, Nicholas Sparks, you treacle peddler, I’m looking at you. I do, however, recommend “The Hunger Games,” “Cloud Atlas” and “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.” Which titles have you read? (Buzz Sugar)
I also urge more of you to get out to the theaters in 2012. There really is something special about seeing a movie on the big screen. Oh, and if you wouldn’t mind adhering to these resolutions while you’re there, that would be peachy. (Moviefone)
Speaking of peache-no, I’m not ready for that link yet. I hope you’re all looking forward to the Golden Globes this Sunday. Our beloved Courtney will be live-blogging, as is her snarky wont, and host Ricky Gervais has admitted he’s only hosting a third time to piss off the journalist. So…this should be fun. (Deadline)
While we’re on the subject of Golden Glob-nope still not time. So a heinous little Girl Scout from California has called for a nation-wide boycott of Girl Scout Cookies in order to protest the recent inclusion of a transgendered kid in a Colorado troop. You can hear her measured, reasoned, bigoted argument here. First of all, chica, you can’t fight City Hall, the moonlight, or my craving for Thin Mints. Secondly, you are an appalling little creature. I suggest, dear readers, you boycott her boycott by buying a sh*t ton of cookies. Here, let me help. (Buy Cookies Today)
Speaking of goodies (yup it’s time), here’s an oh-so-classy list of 7 actresses who got naked on-screen for the first time in 2011. We were just talking about that, you guys! Anyway, people keeping pushing the nudity in Shame. Y’all are in for such an unsexy treat. (The Complex)
And let’s stick with boobs for just one more second, shall we? Because…The Flash? More like The Flesh…amirite, bros? I hate unimaginative cosplay. Oh really, you have breasts and glitter? Congratulations. Click the link for more cosplay including the much cooler Boba Fett from Arizona’s ComicCon. (Unreality)
Speaking of the Southwest, you can win a trip to New Mexico and a walk-on role on AMC’s “Breaking Bad.” This is where I won’t make a “putting the meth in method actor” joke. I’m totally better than that. (Breaking Bad Sweeps)
Speaking of actors, Steven Soderbergh has heaps of praise for first-time actress (and new Pajiba darling) Gina Carano. He also talks about his plans for retirement, the time Gina punched (old Pajiba darling) Michael Fassbender in the face and his plans for f*cking with (perma Pajiba darling) Matt Damon. (Vulture)
Bradley Cooper (perma Pajiba emu) looks rather fetching when comprised entirely of words. Here’s the poster for his newest film. (First Showing)
Speaking of posters, these striking Star Wars silhouettes will almost make you forget how much you hated the prequels. Almost. (AKA Star Wars Kid)
This “I love the smell of napalm in the morning” supercut spares no one. Everyone’s guilty. Veronica Mars…Joss Whedon…Karl Urban during his “Xena: Warrior Princess” days.
And, finally, a little music to start off your weekend. The band Walk Off The Earth does a clever cover.
