Your Weekend Justice #120: The Ballad of the Sad Boners

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that gives your kids graphic novels to warp their minds. So 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: New Daredevil, Old Zemeckis & Zombie Pets

    Ben Affleck as Daredevil

    Why didn't I just let Nic Cage have the role? Damn.

    There are pop culture websites out there that want to stretch every little snippet of news into its own post. They’re squeezing blood from each metaphorical turnip they get hold of. Not us–we figure you don’t have time for that. So we squeeze the blood out for you and give it to you with a little umbrella in it.

    That metaphor didn’t quite work out. Oh well. Enjoy.

  • Amazon‘s deal of the day is The Little Rascals: The Complete Collection for 68% off its usual price of $89.95. It’s $28.49 as I type this and will be that way for today or until they run out. It’s eight discs containing 80 original theatrically released shorts. Thought you might like to know. You can snag it here–but move if you’re gonna.
  • Yup, another Daredevil movie. Being handled still at Fox, who Variety confirms they need to keep this project in some form or fashion lest the rights revert. David Slade (30 Days of Night) has been tapped to helm–he’s also on board the previously mentioned Last Voyage of the Demeter. No scribe on board yet, but according to Hollywood Reporter they’re going for the Frank Miller/David Mazzucchelli “Born Again” storyline. Okay, that could be interesting.

    Angels & Demons (2009) – 27 Second Review

    Angels and Demons movie poster

    Written by: Akiva Goldsman and David Koepp, based on the novel by Dan Brown
    Directed by: Ron Howard
    Starring: Tom Hanks, Ayelet Zurer, Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgård, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Pierfrancisco Favino

    Review: Well, they fixed the hair. And that’s good. But they did well with the rest of it as well, and that’s unexpected. Instead of an overhyped dissapointment, this one seems to be the unholy union of National Treasure with the first movie. Which occured in a meat grinder. That was on fire.

    Also, Anti-Matter! Yay!

    Time: 13 seconds

    Disney Schedule Through 2012

    Walt Disney Pictures logo

    Disney has announced the ten animated feature films that make up their new release schedule through 2012. Plus some Tinker Bell direct to video bits. And you really don’t want the hoobah of the press release talking about how great it is and ooh aren’t we lovely. No, let’s cut straight to the list.

    Oh, wait. You do want to know this bit, though:

    Starting later this year with the release of Disney’s “Bolt,” all Disney and Pixar animated features will be presented in state-of-the-art Disney Digital 3-D(TM). Additionally, newly converted 3-D versions of the beloved classics, “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2,” are set to debut in 2009 and 2010 respectively. Films are not presently scheduled past 2012 due to the impending singularity, or as John Hodgman would call it: Ragnarok.

    That last part we had mentioned previously. And I’ll go ahead and tell you: Incredibles 2 is not on the list. Damn you, Disney. Damn you for breaking my heart. Again.

    Oh, one last thing–where is Chazzie-award winning director Brad Bird? Making a live action co-produced film for Warner Brothers and Disney/Pixar, apparently, so he’s not on the list. Come back, Brad! Bring me my Incredibles sequel! Please!

    Okay, list. What follows is trimmed from their press release. Our additions and comments are in italics.

    Strike? What Strike? There’s Plenty of TV on DVD…

    Blue Planet: Seas of Life Special Edition DVD cover art Bosom Buddies Season 2 DVD cover art Drawn Together Season 2 DVD cover art

    First up, Blue Planet from the BBC. The only trouble with watching documentaries on the BBC is that once you get used to the level of quality they provide, you’ll never go back to watching one of those subpar bits from the History Channel. Might be harsh, but it’s too true. That’s why you see stuff like this and like Planet Earth getting so much play over here. Because it’s damn good. In fact, between this set and Planet Earth, you have a commercial for hi-def televisions just waiting to happen. I’ve reviewed some of the original discs before here and the book that accompanied the series here. Now, previously, I would have thumped anybody who didn’t own this. But if you held out, now’s the time to give in. There’s a bonus fifth disc which contains four new bits of programming that haven’t been released before. Click here to buy it from Amazon.

    Your Weekend Justice

    Sloshing through the swamp of pop culture so you don’t have to. We bring you ideas for how to waste your weekend.

    Of course, special thanks go out to Clutch for letting me use their absolutely badass song, “Promoter (of earthbound causes)” as my theme music for this.

    Buy Blast Tyrant, which is where you can find “Promoter”. Buy their latest album, Pitchforks and Lost Needles. Send them love and coin.

    BTW, you iTunes subscriber types can nab this feed here.

    Or if you want to do something else with it, the feed feed is here.
