More Super Bowl Fallout…SWEET MOVIE TRAILERS!

It’s a quiet Monday across the web…

If I had to guess, I’d say it’s because most of the world is recovering from last night’s Super Bowl Parties (which, by the by, became the 2nd most watched TV program of all time…I’d guess that’s due to a lack of options, thanks to Mr. Writer’s Strike).

So, in the interest of content, here’s YouTube versions of the two BEST movie previews last night….

IRON MAN (Gotta love the confidence Downey has as Stark)


Wall-E (So…So…Adorable….)


Commercial Bowl Recap

Firstly, color me shocked that the Giants won. I’m a fair-weather football fan at best, and the game ended up being quite the nail biter.

But more importantly, the reason why I watched? The ads.

Here are my 5 favs from the night, in no particular order.

1. Bud Light – “Breathe Fire”

Watching the Commercial Bowl…


I’ll be back later with youtubes of my favorite ads, but I had to post…The fucking ARCADE FIRE were used in a video package just now. “No Cars Go” to be accurate. That’s right, scenester kids. Fox will get a hold of EVERYTHING you love. 🙂

Retraction time, kids. According to this article posted today on Pitchfork, The Arcade Fire had ZERO to do with their own music appearing on arguably the biggest TV program of the year.

Nothing is said about those wacky Canadians and/or their label Merge Records making a move towards say, legal proceedings, but let’s be honest, 90 million people had a song played for them, and it wasn’t even cleared. At least someone’s going to lose a job over this.

(Thanks, Kaleigh, for the heads up.)

An Ass-Numbing Film Going Experience

oscar.jpgIn what I think is a pretty smart move, AMC is showing a marathon of all 5 Best Picture Oscar nominees on February 23rd, in select theatres.

Starting at 11am and running until 11pm, you can check out (in order), Michael Clayton, There Will Be Blood, Atonement, Juno and No Country For Old Men. A solid preposition by itself, AMC has made it a bit more interesting with a few perks, including unlimited popcorn and the ability to leave/enter the theatre whenever you like (with your collectors pass), all at the low low price of 30 bills (in the case of here in Baltimore, you’re saving at least $20).

Having seen 2 of the 5 flicks, I personally think it’s completely worth it, and the ability to come and go as you please is nice, especially if there’s a film you’re not too interested in seeing (in my case, Atonement). If this special event is happening near you, I’d recommend checking it out.
