    Your Weekend Justice #111: The Gum Would Like a Word

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that has a giant checklist, comprised of things you’re not supposed to talk about on podcasts. And it’s working its way down it, one item at a time. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart. Or for members of the band The Faint. 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.

    Stuff: Andrew Garfield Spidey-Suits Up

    Amazing Spider-Man

    The Pareto Principle states that 80% of the worthwhile pop culture news can be snagged by only taking in 20% of the volume of regular pop culture news coverage. (Or something like that.) This post is designed for anyone who wants pop culture news in digestible bits, all in one shot, so that person can take a few minutes to get up to speed and then get on with their lives. Enjoy.

  • Amazing Spider-Man has a release date: July 3, 2012. And while a previous picture showed a slightly battered Andrew Garfield in most of the Spidey suit, the official site now has a pic that’s supposed to be Garfield in full gear. I dunno…works for me. Click through to the official site to embiggen it.
  • Dominic Cooper has signed on to play Henry, the friendly neighborhood vampire, in Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. Source.
  • Atlas Shrugged Part 1 has a trailer and a release date of April 15th. It looks, however, frighteningly good. Whatever it turns out to be, I imagine it has a screenwriter that didn’t blatantly misread the original novel. I won’t mention any names, because that would be indiscreet. Randall Wallace. Trailer comes after the break.

    Stuff: AMG is Coming Right At You… Yes, You There on the Couch

    3-D audience
  • Amazon has the upcoming 2-Blu-Ray/1 DVD combo of Snow White (which we had previously mentioned) available for pre-order. You can pre-order that here or the straight-up 2-DVD version here. They’re out October 6th and November 24th respectively. Also, Spaceballs hits Blu-Ray on June 16th. You can pre-order yours here.
  • AMG wants to be the first 3-D network. The gist of what you need to know is that AMG TV is being bought and the folks behind it want to build up enough of a library that they can have “the first full-time 3-D network in the country.” How do you get the tech to have 3-D at home, so we can watch cool shit like Coraline and Monsters vs. Aliens and such? “two solutions: an add-on box for cable and satellite subscribers; and an ‘enhancement’ that will turn any HD television into a 3-D TV for about $50, including the cost of glasses.” Ah, but the coolness is tempered: they call it a 5 on a scale of 1-10 for quality, but it beats what we have right now for home options. Man, the 3-D sci-fi and horror festivals alone might be worth the price of admission for that thing, I don’t know about you guys… Source.

    Win “In Bruges” Swag

    In Bruges poster

    The movie is “In Bruges” (think of “Brooge” pronounced like “Scrooge”). It’s a comedy with Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Fiennes. Oh, and there’s guns. What more can you possibly want from a film? I’m amazed/slightly aghast that it’s in such limited release right now.

    Anyway, here’s the synopsis they’ve given us:

    Bruges, the most well-preserved medieval city in the whole of Belgium, is a welcoming destination for travellers from all over the world. But for hit men Ray (Colin Farrell) and Ken (Brendan Gleeson), it could be their final destination; a difficult job has resulted in the pair being ordered right before Christmas by their London boss Harry (two-time Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) to go and cool their heels in the storybook Flemish city for a couple of weeks.

    But the longer they stay waiting for Harry’s call, the more surreal their experience becomes, as they find themselves in weird encounters with locals, tourists, violent medieval art, a dwarf American actor (Jordan Prentice) shooting a European art film, Dutch prostitutes, and a potential romance for Ray in the form of Chloë (Clémence Poésy), who may have some dark secrets of her own. And when the call from Harry does finally come, Ken and Ray’s vacation becomes a life-and-death struggle of darkly comic proportions and surprisingly emotional consequences.

    And there’s guns! Here, I’ll show you the trailer after the jump:

    Wallace and Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005) – Movie Review

    Wallace and Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit movie poster

    Written by Bob Baker, Steve Box & Mark Burton, based on characters created by Nick Park
    Directed by Steve Box & Nick Park
    Starring the Voices of Peter Sallis, Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Peter Kay, Nicholas Smith

    My Advice: Don’t miss it.

    Our heroes Wallace (Sallis) and Gromit have had many adventures in their time. They’ve gone to the moon, thwarted a criminal penguin, and broken up a sheep rustling ring. This time around they’ve created Anti-Pesto, a humane pest control service. A giant vegetable contest (a community tradition) is upcoming, and unless the rabbits can be kept under control, then all the massive veggies will get gnawed away to nothing. Wallace and Gromit are especially interested in a new client, the Lady Tottington (Carter), because keeping her prize veggies safe will be really great for business. Not to mention the fact that she’s quite the looker (by claymation and Wallace’s standards). However, there’s a new player on the scene…a terrifying, hulking creature that exists only to throw veggies down its giant gullet: the Were-Rabbit.

    The Prince of Egypt (1998) – Movie Review

    The Prince of Egypt

    Written by: Kelly Asbury & Lorna Cook along with 14 other people, based on the book of Exodus
    Directed by: Brenda Chapman, Steve Hickner, & Simon Wells
    Starring: Val Kilmer, Ralph Fiennes, Patrick Stewart, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sandra Bullock

    My Advice: Wait and Rent It.

    To escape a culling of Hebrew firstborns, Moses (Kilmer) is placed in a CGI basket by his mother and set adrift, only to wind up in the arms of Egypt’s Queen (Helen Mirren) and become a…prince of Egypt. He flees the kingdom once he learns of his true heritage and finds peace in Midian and winds up marrying Pocahontas (Pfeiffer). Content at first, he’s called on by God (Kilmer) to go into Egypt and lead the Hebrews out of slavery.

    That’s right, it’s the book of Exodus. They’ve thrown in some unnecessary action sequences, i.e. a Ben Hur chariot race down the scaffolding of a monument whilst the nose of said monument is a close third, but all in all, you’ve got Exodus. And therein lies the problem with this film: it tries too hard to do too much. The story is big and broad enough as it is, it doesn’t need add-ons. It’s almost like they set out to out-Disney Disney. For example, apart from the opening “Deliver Us,” the songs are all unnecessary and painfully intrusive. Every time somebody needs to explain something, suddenly–! There’s a song going–and I’m cringing.
