Holy shit that was an exciting end to the season. A month ago, everyone was talking about how there was no races except maybe the AL Central. Well it ended up that the Tigers were the first team in MLB to clinch and we had some crazy finishes for the Wild Cards last night. The collapses of Boston and Atlanta were crazy. Hopefully the playoffs will be just as exciting. We are going to preview the Divisional Series and give you our prediction for who will end up in the League Championships.
Everybody here holds a soft spot in their heart for the original 1984 Red Dawn. It starred Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Hall, Charlie Sheen, Jennifer Grey, and Lea Thompson alongside others as a group of kids who hide out in the woods after their town is invaded by communist forces from Russia and Mexico.
They then make a bad ass stand against the occupiers and save America and freedom. They probably save France again too, bunch of pussies.
Last week, we did a preview of NBC’s Thursday night comedy lineup. Well the shows are in the books and we would love nothing more to give you a recap and review. Warning…Spoilers Ahead.
Thursday night on NBC has an amazing history of being home to some of the most popular comedies. From Cheers and The Cosby Show to Friends and Will and Grace. They had a few shaky years at the end of Friends, but they have slowly built back what was a respectable comedy lineup back on Thursday nights with Community, Parks and Recreation, the Office and 30 Rock. Unfortunately, all these shows haven’t hit their stride at the same time to build that viewership base and the ratings for these sometimes great shows has suffered.
As we learned from FilmDrunk, Josh Brolin has been cast to play the lead in Spike Lee’s remake of the 2003 South Korean film Oldboy by director Park Chan-wook.
The original movie won the ‘Gran Prix of the Jury’ at Cannes in 2004, and therefore has some big shoes to fill.
We have also talked about it here before, but I’ve included the trailer for you again.
Flatliners, the 1990 drama/thriller about medical students who killed themselves and then brought themselves back, and then had to deal with the demons from their past, is being remade.
A lot of websites will make a dream team of the best players. Hell, that’s what the All-Star Game is supposed to be. But no one ever has created a team based on the most perverted names, its true (I can’t back that up). I was sitting at the baseball game on Monday giggling like a 8-year-old at Doug Fister and wondered what a team of sexual innuendo’s and dirty sounding names would look like. I remember some of the greats like Steve Sax, Dick Pole and Rusty Kuntz, but I wanted to focus on current players.
Ron Swanson, the ultra-libertarian boss on Parks and Recreation, is a throwback character and a symbol of masculinity that Dr. Kronner seems to talk about a lot, here and here (I think he may be overcompensating). In the first season of the show, he served in a more limited role but they began to include him more and expand character and his background.
The ESPN tell-all book Those Guys Have All the Fun: Inside the World of ESPN has had the movie rights picked up by 21st Century Fox according to The Hollywood Reporter. Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick, whom I loved while they were on SportsCenter – but can’t stand since, took some time to discuss the possibility of the movie on Olbermann’s show. They also then go on to discuss who should play some of their former ESPN colleagues. Olbermann and Patrick also cast themselves. Patrick gives himself Jason Bateman or Ryan Reynolds, and Olbermann throws up a picture of Josh Charles from Sports Night for himself, while Patrick says it should be Ben Affleck.
The cable sports network previously known as the Outdoor Life Network will now also previously be known as Versus, and be currently known as NBC Sports Network. This is all a result of the purchase of NBC Universal by Comcast, and an attempt to merge the two companies’ sports infrastructure. According to The Hollywood Reporter the name change will go into effect on January 2nd.
