Your Weekend Justice #134: How Many Licks Does It Take to Get to the Center of Cerebro?

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that focus on television like a sawed-off shotgun filled with Jell-O. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

    Tropic Thunder DVD cover art

    What might be the funniest war movie that wasn’t really a war movie ever made–and a glorious bit of Hollywood meta action–is Tropic Thunder. Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr. in the funniest role of the year, and Tom Cruise, even, rocking like he hasn’t rocked since Magnolia. The commentary alone in which Downey is still in character–is worth the price of admission. Trust us, you want to win this. And you’ve got three chances, amigos. So enter–and enter once a day–then go and enter all our other contests once a day, because we’re crazy enough to let you–and if we draw your name, you win. Sweet.

    Tropic Thunder (2008) – Movie Review

    Tropic Thunder movie poster art

    Written by: Etan Cohen, Ben Stiller & Justin Theroux, based on a story by Stiller & Theroux
    Directed by: Ben Stiller
    Starring: Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr., Jack Black, Brandon T. Jackson, Jay Baruchel, Nick Nolte, Danny McBride, Steve Coogan

    My Advice: Matinee

    Tropic Thunder is Hollywood’s latest big budget war film and it means different things to different people. Tugg Speedman (Stiller) sees it as a way to revitalize his career after his signature franchise has cooled off (literally and figuratively) and his attempt at Oscar-bait backfired in a big way. Kirk Lazarus (Downey) sees it as a path towards his sixth Oscar. Jeff Portnoy (Black) sees it as the thing most comedians do: go for drama as a way to get legitimized as an actor. Director Damien Cockburn (Coogan) is a first-time helmer and sees the film as a way to launch him into the big leagues. But they ever expected it to become much more (and much less) than a Hollywood film–which it does, when Cockburn decides to make it real for his actors in order to save the troubled production.

    America’s Favorite Blocky Animals Return in “Madagascar 2”

    Madagascar 2

    The reason there’s a sequel to this film is obvious: a $532 million box office take worldwide. The sequel is called Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, which confirms the demographic they’re shooting for is anyone who thinks having the numeral 2 in the title like that is clever.

    Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sacha Baron Cohen, Cedric the Entertainer and Andy Richter all return. New to the cast are: Bernie Mac as Ben Stiller’s dad, Mufasa; Sherri Shepherd from The View as Ben Stiller’s mom, Sarabi; Alec Baldwin as Scar, a challenger to Bernic Mac’s throne. Hmm. I might have mixed up the names.
