That trailer for A Christmas Story 2 is a poignant reminder just how great Home Alone was.
There is also a longer version, which has a skit with Murray at the start: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=_QsmuMGkIlA
God, I wish they would make television again…
I saw the movie over the weekend (because for some reason, Europe now gets big movies earlier, so suck it) and this was pretty close to my views on the film. Garfield and Stone were wonderful, especially together and the action looked great and fluid. My main problem was that the director couldn’t decide between a light romp about a kid with spider-powers or a serious superhero movie. All the light parts are wonderful, but the dramatic heightening was at times just so stupid. I won’t go in to spoilers, but there were at least three times they want to do something dramatic and I just went “really?”. Which is a shame, because it is 75% fun movie and 25% standard superhero schlock. Still, I would recommend checking it out and it has me excited for the sequels.
Also, even though I’m pretty sure there are absolutely no comic book nerd on Videogum: they do put in more stuff from the comics than the Tobey Maguire ones, but then that does not pay off at all. Plus it gave me reason to go into a lengthy tangent about how even though everyone would benefit from it, Spider-man will not be in an Avengers movie.
This will be the best show about beets since “Doug”

Ugh. Of course they chose the superhero who likes to accessorize…
So Krispy Kreme drops a track called “Best Friends” on the day NBC is airing the last episodes of “Best Friends Forever”? COINCIDENCE? Yes. Still, go watch it #savebff
Sidebar: I still need to know who did the theme song for BFF. Thanks.
Krispy Kreme is so prolific, he’s like the Lil B of rap.
I thought Community was OK, but I’ve stated before that I feel these more grounded episodes don’t really work, because the characters are such cartoons. Tha’s why high-concept episodes work much better. That’s why I felt the tag at the end about Abed,s bizarre standup worked so well, especiallt the line ‘That’s from his album’ killed me. This episode had some nice character moments, but nothing really memorable.
On an unrelated note, has anyone seen Best Friends Forever? I like the talent involved, but I feel it’s pretty uneven in the humor and drama elements, but there is potential that needs time and I’m not sure NBC will give it that. The main reason I bring it up is THAT THEME SONG IS DRIVING ME INSANE! It’s a really cool 90′s throwback thing, but I can’t find what the song is and Googling BFF song lead me to abhorent results…
I don’t get the Pete Campbell hate. Everyone seems to hate him, but why? He’s probably the guy that works the hardest (and I mean guy, all the women work at least twice as hard), still trying to proce he deserves his job, no matter how he got there, while all the senior partners still treat him as a kid.
Is it just because everyone is jealous he knocked up Alison Brie?
Even though last night’s episode was understandibly light on stuff actually happening, there were so many great character moments. Sansa slighting Joffrey, Tyrion’s joking to the prostitute, John Snow trying to get into the good graces of the weird incest king, Bran as the new lord of Winterfell, all wonderful stuff. Plus all the things they’re setting up? I’m so excited! I already can’t wait for the next one.
Somewhat off topic: how did Melisssandre come across? Because as a Dutchie I love Carice van Houten, but I felt her just having the Dutch accent was such a weird choice for her character. Still, the character was really bad-ass.
There’s jut something about Joffrey’s face that draws people into slapping him…
Damnit, Internation Women’s Day is RUINED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!!!1!!!!!!!1
It’s like that old joke. “I’m not rich, my husband’s not wealthy, our gardner isn’t wealthy, our butlers aren’t wealthy and our chauffeur certainly isn’t wealthy”.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, in theaters now
Also, did you know the guy who played Inspector Spacetime is making an Inspector Spacetime web series? It’s not backed by NBC or Dan Harmon, but it is a thing that will exist: http://io9.com/5886382/theres-going-to-be-an-inspector-spacetime-web-series
I was going to make a stupid Jenny Lewis joke, until I realized Carla Gugino is apparently also in this. Why isn’t that the first thing on her IMDB page? Because it should be!
“This National Treasure movie is such a great idea, but it would be better as a documentary. Who needs all that action?” – Kirk Cameron
It’s not a restaurant, if you look at the background you can see it’s actually a Volkswagen dealership. They just brought their own table.
Pffft, this is stupid. He doesn’t even say to ask if they saw the fight outside or if she knows which movie the quote “Nobody puts baby in the corner” is from. Everyone knows that’s the only way to get a girlfriend, middle school or otherwise.
What do I think? I think you should start watching Archer, because it’s a really great show and then you could include it with a throw-away line too! Then we could have a jump-off point to talk about it. I also think you should start recapping “Ink Master”, but that’s a different discussion altogether.
I’ve never gotten why people think they need a lowest rated for an EGOT. It’s not like to get a full EGOT you have to win a Razzie, right? That would make it a REGOT. Or a TEGOR. Or OGRET. You get it.
Haha, great prank, Josh Hutcherson! You did it!
He did try to prank the Rock, but the Rock could smell what he was cookin’
