Your Weekend Justice #195: Criminal Cravings for Empanadas

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck–the podcast that wants to believe but can’t due to an overabundance of ECT while it was in middle school. And it’s here, albeit delayed by weather, illness and exhaustion–the three horsemen of the podcast apocalypse.

    Headsup: The Rabbit, The Fairy and an Abundance of Cats

    There’s a lot of stuff that comes out all the time, and the companies are want your attention and mostly…your coin. But, you know, it’s your coin and you have to take care where you spend it. With these posts we try to take you through recent releases so you can make up your mind. If you find the info here to be of use, do us a favor and purchase stuff from Amazon through us. Especially if you were going to buy the stuff anyway. That gives us kickbacks, which help pay for things. Like the server. And coffee. And therapy. We thank you.

    Stuff You Need to Know: Tonka Trucks: The Movie. No. Really.

    Judge Dredd 2012

    'SANDLER!!!!'

    Some sites want to flood your screen with lame images, re-swizzled press releases and info you simply do not need in your life. We just want to give you one post, bang and you’re done. Short and sweet so you can get on with your lives. Enjoy.

  • In some excellent news, everything I’ve seen thus far on Dredd leads me to believe there is a snowball’s chance that it might not suck. Hollywood Reporter has the poster.
  • Primarily, you 24 fans need to be aware that the Complete Series is Amazon’s deal of the day today. List Price is $349.98. They’re selling it today for 67% off–or a reduction of $234.99 from the list price–which means you get the whole shebang for $114.99. (We tend not to bug you unless something is at least 50% off. So.) Here’s your link. Enjoy.
  • Oh hell yes. As part of Universal’s 100th Anniversary rollout of stuff, September 4th will see Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein hit Blu-Ray. You can pre-order it here. And you should. Because that film is solid gold.

    Stuff: Googling “Henry Rollins Sucks” Just Got More Interesting

    Henry Rollins in Suck

    There’s a lot of stuff going on in the world of pop culture. You don’t have time for it all. So we grab all the best bits and give them to you in a single post. Because somebody had to. Enjoy.

  • Okay, so the story‘s about Splendid Films, a German distributor. So while Dom might be interested in that, I’m more interested in the array of films that are coming: Conan, directed by Marcus Nispel (who brought you the Texas Chainsaw remake) and due in 2011; Tekken, directed by Dwight Little (who went and did a lot of television after Anacondas) ; and…

    …wait a second, a vampire comedy starring Iggy Pop, Malcolm McDowell and Rollins? Called Suck? Jesus, I wish we had a trailer.

    Triple Dose of Zappa

    Frank Zappa

    Frank Zappa is a musician/composer I seem to appreciate more and more as time goes on. In fact, below the break I’ll include the first time I actually heard his work–and it wasn’t even him. Oh sure, I had heard “Dirty Love” and “Yellow Snow” and all of the novelty-esque bits that you sorta can’t help but run across. But it took a bit of time to start to delve and find some fantastic stuff.

    Starting away from the music, here he is on What’s My Line? I love the way he and the host devolve into film geekery. Awesome.

    Frank Zappa vs. Your Cough

    The commercials we’ve posted previously involving celebrities pitching for various and sundry products have had a long history of wackiness: whether it’s the relatively normal wacky of, say, a Bert Lahr, or the Dali-level wacky of…well, Dali. But there’s just something special about Frank Zappa making a bunch of noise and shilling for cough drops.

    Although…does this commercial and its relentless mammoth cough drop box that Cannot Be Stopped make anybody else feel sorry for the cough?

    And of course, this gives me an excuse to post a live performance of Zappa conducting “Bolero.” So bonus.

    Stuff: Russell Brand’s Hair To Be More Convincing CG Than Yogi Bear

    Russell Brand
  • Russell Brand has been signed by Comedy Central to do a one-hour stand-up special. It will be taped in NYC in November and air on the network in 2009. Brand’s comment: “Comedy Central is the home of ‘South Park,’ ‘The Daily Show,’ and ‘The Sarah Silverman Program.’ I am thrilled to have such esteemed neighbours — particularly Sarah whom I shall be constantly troubling for cups of sugar and milk, breast milk.” Nice.
  • Amazon is selling the two-disc Pride & Prejudice from A&E Home Video with Colin Firth for 60% off, i.e. $16. Just today or while stocks last, whichever ends first. Grab yours here.
  • Battle: Los Angeles is “‘Black Hawk Down’ meets ‘Independence Day.'” It’s about a marine taking on an alien invasion in the streets of Los Angeles. Scribe is Chris Bertolini (General’s Daughter). The director on board is Jonathan Liebesman (Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning). Pic is still in pre-production. Source: Hollywood Reporter.
