New Anchorman 2 Game app! Try and get the ice in the glass (or in Baxter’s mouth)
And I guess we need to keep our eye out for Champ Kind and Ron Burgundy hosting SportsCenter on Thursday night. I’ll have to find it on the internet.
This is pretty amazing. Ron Burgundy co-anchored the news in South Dakota with some stupid lady. She really sucks though. She kept giggling and looking at him. Get it together woman! It would have been so much better if she pretended to take him seriously. Commit to the bit lady!
He nailed it of course.
It’s the season for movies, and I’m being attacked by genius Oscar-level acting at every turn. I’d like to call out two side-by-side dynamic duo leading/supporting performances from Dallas Buyers Club and 12 Years a Slave.
Matthew Mcehgheidkdkllele is really hit or miss. His name is hard to spell, and sometimes he does mediocre stuff, and has he ever played a non-Texan? This time (while playing a Texan, he hit it. He lost weight to an almost Machinist level, and yes, he successfully looked like he was dying. And Jared Leto joined in on this weird I-love-acting-so-much-I’m-willing-to harm-myself train by losing weight that I didn’t think he could afford to lose. And as far as his performance, I believe it’s his best role ever. And together, they were amazing to watch. One homophobic and one gay (guess which is which), both AIDS patients, it was terrific to see their relationship evolve.
These two dudes, out of nowhere. Boom. I would be surprised if Chitewel Ejiofor doesn’t win the Best Male Lead. He really wrenched my gut. When I see him online out of character, I’m like “ooooh Solomon, you poor poor man! You didn’t deserve all that” He convinced me. Ejiofor’s character Solomon, who is an educated free man from the North who had a family and was kidnapped, taken South, and made a slave, eventually ends up in the hands of Michael Fassbender’s character who is an evil bastard devil douchebag. I assume Fassbender had to dig deep to play someone so so so awful, because I saw him on The Daily Show and he seemed like an alright dude.
You have some important napping to do this Thanksgiving, but that doesn’t mean that there shouldn’t be a movie in the background of that nap. Put on your elastic-waist pants and go to nap town with these lovely nappish movies.
Hey! There’s a Thanksgiving movie this year called Free Birds. I mean, I’m not gonna see it or anything; it’s a kids movie. But here are some better Thanksgiving movies, like Hannah and Her Sisters that might get you in the mood spirit or prepare you to deal with weird family members.
I went and saw Dallas Buyers Club the other night, and for the first time, The pre-movie trailers were six for six on the “That looks really good” score. For 20 minutes I watched a montage of good-looking people, big name directing, great acting, shiny costumes, Wes Anderson frowns, crying, men trapped in boxes, violence, anger, drug-doing, breakout child actors, and Joaquin Phoenix. Here’s the trailer lineup:
1. American Hustle. Directed by David O. Russel. It’s about a buncha hot people workin it and hustlin. It’s got the best movie posters in the biz right now.
Wes Anderson is already set to deliver us a new one in March. Here are some nice photos from the film.
Here’s the trailer:
Weird film director David Lynch shows us how to make quinoa while also telling long stories for some reason. I’m into it. Check out the two part video for both information and entertainment!
Movie Mumbo Jumbo like.

Moonrise Kingdom managed to be really fun and adorable despite the huge amount of deadpan stares and mega frowns and the extreme lack of smiling.
For the highly prestigious Duane Reade Film Festival, Movie Mumbo Jumbo is screening all the movies on one side of dvd rack at the 37 Broadway Duane Reade in Manhattan. The air is electric here in my living room for Screening #3, which is Conspiracy Theory. It’s what Duane Reade is calling “Hot DVD Entertainment”.
So. Conspiracy Theory. It’s not bad. Not a bad movie. Decent action and suspense. Stupid ending that comes after the ending. SPOILER ALERT: Mel Gibson is not really dead! He’s alive but keeping it a secret! And Mel Gibson plays a paranoid crazy person in this, so that’s fun, because when you watch him you can’t stop thinking about how crazy he is in real life. Also he’s really good-looking in this.
