    Your Weekend Justice #180: Capuchin Keggers at the Abandoned Laundry

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that stars the crimefighting child-like miscreants that were once devised by Franklin W. Dixon to stars in books to be used to punish bad little boys and girls who spent too much time in front of the television. Little did the Stratemeyer crew know what they were unleashing upon the world…

    Stuff You Need to Know: RZA to Direct the Original Khan

    John Wayne as Genghis Khan

    'Who did you say is directing? Whoa.'

    Yes, sorry, we’ve been away…but we’ve been trapped down in this hellhole with rats, a huge hole in the floor and a pendulum. Long story. Anyway, here’s the gist: a lot of sites try to turn a bunch of press releases into blog posts and articles. You wind up reading 500 words to find out some start from The CW is now the tertiary lead in Saw XIV. Not here. We distill all of that stuff into an info smoothie that you can suck down in one sitting and get on with your life. Enjoy.

    (If you do enjoy, stuff that we cite here as up and coming or of interest–if you’re going to buy it from Amazon anyway, if you do it through our links, we get kickbacks. Thanks in advance for your support.)

  • Speaking of which, the Amazon deal of the day is for the Alien Anthology on Blu-Ray for 64% off. That’s just $25 for a sweet, sweet set. Normally it’s $69.99. Only available today and until they run out.

    Your Weekend Justice #162: Down the Road That We Must Travel

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that just can’t be content to leave the past in the past. If bad pop culture was Karloff’s Mummy, this podcast would be dumb enough to break the seal on the tomb. I think that’s what I’m really trying to say here. 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 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.

    Stuff You Need to Know: You Say Faora, I Say Ursa, Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off

    Antje Traue

    Could this woman use a manhole cover as a weapon? I think so.

    Pop culture news is a constant bombardment of bloated informational pieces that sites use to draw traffic. That might work for them–but we know you have better things to do. Here’s all the news with all the irrelevant bits taken out. We kept it on a warmer, so don’t worry. You can subscribe to the Stuff feed solo or get this as a free email newsletter.

  • Amazon headsup for a killer deal: today and today only they have The Immaculate Collection of Dawn French’s The Vicar of Dibley for 60% off the list price of $98.98, putting it at $39.49. While stocks last. Thought you’d like to know. Snag yours here.
  • Superman: Man of Steel has a Zod (Michael Shannon–yes, the creepy agent from Boardwalk Empire–which is good casting, methinks) and now has a Faora. Which is apparently Ursa. Or…something. The female villain. Antje Traue (Pandorum), a name designed to screw me up when I inevitably try to Wayhomer any film she’s in, is been cast, according to Variety. Production starts this summer.

    Stuff You Need to Know, Saturday, November 15, 2008

    Coraline poster

    It’s like Reader’s Digest for entertainment news. But snarkier. Enjoy.

  • To the right there (click to embiggen) is the one-sheet for Coraline. If you need to know why you should see this, then check out my book review. Short version: Henry Selick + The Neil = potential for gold.
  • The Dark Knight has been disqualified for Best Musical Score because five composers are listed on the cue sheet. You can go read the article if you want, but I didn’t understand it. If it makes any sense to you, come back here and explain it to me. Maybe they only have the budget to create three little statue-guys. I dunno.
  • On one hand, when I tell you that Steve Carell is going to voice the titular character of Despicable Me for Universal and Illumination Entertainment, you’re probably going to yawn. I did. But then the synopsis got my attention: “Carell’s title character is a deplorable man known as Groo who masterminds the mother of all heists when he plots to steal the moon. Egged on by an evil mother (
    [Julie] Andrews), Groo finds one obstacle in his way: a trio of orphan girls who temporarily come under his care and won’t leave.” Now there’s some potential. On top of that all, Russell Brand and Jack McBrayer (from 30 Rock) are also in the cast. Russell Brand is, so far as we know, not providing the voices for the orphan girls. Expect the film in 2010.
