Hugh Jackman, Coffee Achiever

Wolverine, claws out
‘Does it hurt when you drink decaf?’ ‘Every time.’

Hugh Jackman is one badass individual. Not only has his Wolverine been too awesome for any of the movies he has featured in, but he sings, he dances, he produces and seems to be an all-around nice guy. Did you know he was a coffee achiever? I didn’t. And I know you might be thinking: Widge, everybody likes coffee. Even the people who say they don’t, it’s just because they haven’t found their coffee yet. And yes, dear friend, I agree with you. But Jackman is taking it to another level.

    Stuff You Need to Know: Imagine Captain Kirk Yelling “Cumberbatch”

    Benedict Cumberbatch

    All the pop culture news you really need to know in one post. This section of the site is designed for people who like to batch process things. Enjoy.

  • In excellent news for everyone involved, Benedict “Sherlock” Cumberbatch is the villain in Star Trek 2. The other person they mentioned auditioning for it was Edgar Ramirez. So this is the same role that Abrams wanted Benicio Del Toro for? That was rumored to be Khan…and then it looked like it had been confirmed…and now it looks like it’s a rumor again. So who knows? Either way, this is very pleasing news. Source: Variety.
  • Bag of Bones is scheduled to hit DVD on March 13th. It’s available for pre-order here.
  • Drive is hitting home video on January 31st. A lot of people liked it more than I did–and so be it–but Albert Brooks is a revelation, no matter what. Here are: DVD and Blu-Ray pre-order links.

    My Advice: Wait for cable.

    James Howlett (Troye Sivan as a kid, Jackman as an adult) had family issues and one really, really bad day. On that really, really bad day, he lost his father, gained his father, lost his father, lost his mother, gained a half-brother…oh, and popped “bone claws” out of his hands. He then spent a lot of time fighting wars until he came across William Stryker (Huston), who offered him and his half-brother (Schreiber) a home and a mission. However, times change, people change, hair styles change, interest rates fluctuate and thus Howlett (now Logan) walks away from it all…unfortunately, it’s not going to walk away from him. At least not very easily.
