lindsay lohan

Well we all know that Lindsay Lohan has been cast in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete movie, but to no surprise we have yet to find out any big details about her role. The one thing we do know is that the 22-year-old actress will appear nude, I really hope that is no shock to any of y’all since she will show it all at the drop of a hat.


Hollywood Life reports that Lohan has about ten minutes of screen time, in which she will be shown topless while swimming in a waterfall with Alicia Rachel Marek (Grindhouse), who plays her mother.

This scene sounds exactly like what we have already seen in the Machete trailer from Grindhouse, where two actresses make-out with Danny Trejo (1:38 mark). You can check out the trailer below to see everything for yourself.

McG

 

We all heard McG discussing plans for his new trilogy during the making of ‘Terminator Salvation,’ but the franchise is in a major upheaval and is going through a few changes. The owners of the Terminator franchise a Halcyon company, is planning to sell the rights by February 1st, and the new owners just may not want McG to return.

 

 

McG previously stated that the ‘Salvation’ sequel will take place in a pre-Judgement Day, 2011. “John Connor is going to travel back in time and he’s going to have to galvanize the militaries of the world for an impending Skynet invasion,” he said.

 

“They’ve figured out time travel to the degree where they can send more than one naked entity. So you’re going to have hunter killers and transports and harvesters and everything arriving in our time and Connor fighting back with conventional military warfare,” McG added. “I also think he’s going to meet a scientist that’s going to look a lot like present-day Robert Patrick [who famously played the T-1000 in Terminator 2], talking about stem-cell research and how we can all live as idealized, younger versions of ourselves.”

Spockobama

 

The article was running yesterday in many newspapers across the country and can be read at MSNBC.com and other sites. This has been a subject of much debate, the week the Star Trek movie came out, the NY Times had an op-ed by Maureen Dowd on the subject.

Wake up guys and gals, Obama is no Spock, not even close, yes President Obama is a Star Trek fan and we all can appreciate that to no end, but the buck stops there. Here is why they aren't alike. Spock uses logic and reasoning most of the time, Obama doesn't, he just pushes his agenda no matter what, like printing money with nothing to back it up or base it on. Would Spock do that? I don't think so. President Obama has tripled our national debt since taking office, in other words he has spent more in less than a year than Bush did his two terms in office. Would Spock do this? I don't think so. Obama baled out failing companies then took several of them over at our (the tax payers) expense, and did exactly what the companies was going to do to start with and laid worker off. Would Spock do this? I don't think so.

Health Care is a issue that needs to be addressed, but at a cost to start it up with money we don't have to support such a venture at this time under the Obama plan, yet he pushes it anyway. Would Spock do this? I don't think so. Obama loves the lime light and attention, children in school forced to sing about him, addressing children in schools via satellite without their parents being present. On the news and TV daily even when he really has nothing to say. Would Spock do this? I don't think so.

In Star Fleet Spock was part of team that weighed options and normalcy the most logical course would be taken. With Obama his own cabinet and people in key positions have publicly criticized Obama's policies backed with facts and numbers, yet Obama ignores them and keeps pushing his agenda any way. Would Spock do this? I don't think so.

At this juncture I would have to say that Obama more or less fits the Romulan or Klingon spy who has worked his way into Star Fleet key position as to try and destroy the Federation.

 

TV viewing

 

First off Hinman failed to mention any show that is on the SyFy Channel. Why is that Mikey? I'm starting to wonder about you boy. Now on with my rant on the subject at hand. Knight Rider, any true Sci-Fi fan knew that this show was doomed from the first 10 minutes of the pilot, I knuckled down and watched 4 episodes even though it made me want to puke my guts out in the new KIT the whole time I was watching, till I just couldn't take anymore. Pushing Daisies was a cute show and I watched it for the whole first season, but cuteness wears out quick, babies are cute too, but just think about one with a real humdinger of a stinky diaper, enough said there. By year two I would catch it at some point, some times months after the episode aired on the DVR. As for TSCC, season one was awesome, it was kicking much ass up to the season two premier,  and it was downhill from then on out, bad acting, bad storylines, even the way they would put the scenes together just sucked. 

 

 

Fox's "Dollhouse," a sci-fi show that was suppose to be geared for the female gender. Ummm, how did that work out, it failed just as I knew it would. No offense intended ladies, but there just aren't enough true sci-fi fans of the fairer sex to sustain a TV series on the public air waves at this time. For most of us guys it just turned our stomachs inside out. I have a strong feeling that the up coming SyFy Channel's "Battlestar Galactica" spinoff series "Caprica" will turn out the same way as Dollhouse.  

We also lost two series that was on the ABC Family Channel that very few talk about  when addressing  Genre ratings, the sad part is they were both good series. "Kyle XY" and  "The Middleman" where both excellent shows and in my opinion if they where on ABC's public air channels they would have survived and been here today gearing for a new season. We also lost "Stargate Atlantis" that was on none other than the SyFy Channel, not many talking about it either. The biggest problem with Atlantis was the constant change in Characters, also by the third season the storylines was getting very dull. And last but not least of shows we lost was the USA Networks "4400" series. Great show overall, but issues with some of the actors and storylines going dry helped lead this show to it demise.

As for existing shows, the CW's "Smallville" was moved from it's Thursday night slot to Friday night, so they could make room for another show geared for the ladies called the "Vampire Diaries." Smallville took a big hit in the ratings due to the move but it now seems the show ratings are climbing back up and it's fair to say that we will get at least one more season of Smallville, and yes the show is kicking more ass than normal so make sure to tune in, no matter what time slot it's in. As for Vampire Diaries, it's ratings are good, but it is not no where as popular as Smallville was when it was in that time slot, and the new series has hurt "Supernatural" in the ratings. As for Supernatural, if any of you have been watching lately can see that even the Winchester boy's are growing tired of the series and I suspect we will being the departure of Sam and Dean at the end of this season even if the series is renewed, which I doubt will happen.

Now for the big dogs. "Lost" is fixen to start it's finale season. Last season the episodes had gotten better than the two previous seasons, but it was to late, most folks had already moved on and wasn't willing to give LOST another chance. Heroes, will more than likely be renewed for a new season and yes the episodes have gotten better but I think it's to late and like LOST, the viewers they lost won't give Heroes a another chance and it's ratings will never be as high as they were before."V", to be honest it's to early for me to predict, but so far this new series is on the right track and I give it a A rating in all areas. "Flash Forward" I feel will flash out by the end of it's first season.

Tune in tomorrow and I'll cover more on TV series not mentioned in this article and give you the real scoop on whats wrong with most of the genre shows today and why they are dying. Till then just remember "It's all about the Sci-Fi Baby!!"



Plot: When California girl Susan Murphy (Reese Witherspoon) is unexpectedly clobbered by a meteor full of outer space gunk, she mysteriously grows to 49-feet 11-inches tall and is instantly labeled a "monster" named Ginormica. The military jumps into action, and she is captured and held in a secret government compound. The world learns that the military has been quietly rounding up other monsters over the years. This ragtag group consists of the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D. (Hugh Laurie); The macho half-ape, half-fish The Missing Link (Will Arnett); The gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B. (Seth Rogen); and the 350-foot grub called Insectosaurus. Their confinement time is cut short however, when a mysterious alien robot lands on Earth and begins storming the country.

As a last resort, under the guidance of General W.R. Monger (Kiefer Sutherland) – on a desperate order from The President (Stephen Colbert) – the motley crew of Monsters is called into action to combat the aliens and save the world from imminent destruction.

"Monsters vs. Aliens" is scheduled to hit conventional and 3-D IMAX theaters on March 27th, 2009.

The projects have different plots, but each film will be made for under $100 million because the visual effects will be accomplished using the greenscreen techniques that made "300" so visually arresting. Relativity got in the Greek game last summer when it bought the Charley and Vlas Parlapanides-scripted "War of the Gods."

At the same time, "The Incredible Hulk" helmer Leterrier committed to WB’s "Clash of the Titans," a remake of the 1981 film that tells the story of Zeus son Perseus’ journey and battles against Medusa.

 



"The Three Stooges are a timeless staple of comedy and when we heard what the Farrellys had in mind we knew it was time for Larry, Moe and Curly to return to the big screen," says MGM Chairman Mary Parent. It’s unclear if MGM and the Farrellys are looking at a star-studded comedy or if a group of newcomers will get a break.

Bobby and Peter Farrelly have written the Stooges film as an origin story for Larry, Moe and Curly, reintroducing viewers to the characters who first appeared in the MGM shorts in 1933. "We love The Stooges! They have been sending the world into hysterics for more than 80 years." Peter Farrelly says in a statement. "Movie goers today deserve their own Stooges and we look forward to introducing them to a new generation of knuckleheads."

The Farrellys were most recently in the press as producers and possibly directors of "Walter the Farting Dog," which may mark the first big screen break for the Jonas Brothers. They most recently directed the pilot for FOX’s short-lived "Unhitched," as well as the 2007 remake of "The Heartbreak Kid."

So should the Stooges make a come back as a remake or should they just leave it alone and let us keep watching those old Black and White reruns that we love?

 

The cast are certainly likeable in their roles, although it did take the entire two hours for us to warm up to Zedd the wizard (Bruce Spence). Meanwhile, Kahlan (Bridget Regan) and Richard (Craig Horner) had us rooting for them from the first time we met them. To be sure, there is a certain cheese factor here (which isn’t necesarily a bad thing – didn’t we all love Hercules & Xena??), and some of the story elements pushed the boundaries of things that most of us would take for granted. Wasn’t it lovely for the soldiers to pause and allow that touching death scene? Did anyone else wish to own only those white clothes that would not only wash & repair themselves when the audience isn’t looking, but also jump back onto your skin when they’ve finished all that? And who wouldn’t smack their brother for taking the word of a stranger, over the word of his own kind & honest sibling??? This list could be a lot longer, believe me, but you get the idea.

But the thing is, if you can get yourself to just sit back and enjoy the ride, that’s when you "get it." Grab the popcorn, turn off the nit-picking, and just be. Two fun lead characters, an eccentric old kook of a wizard, a bad guy with a black heart, and plenty of magic to go ’round: what more could you want?

For now, the series is earning a solid 7 out of 10 from us – loosely translated, that’s "good, but with the potential to be so much better!" (But that poor chicken is never gonna be the same!! wink wink)

So what did you think of the first two episodes?
