This morning my heart hurts. I don't mean like boohoo I just wanted "Titanic" and now I'm sad I mean my heart is actually in pain. I'm pretty sure it's all the coffee I drink finally catching up with me. In the past 48 hours I've had 4 giant coffees, a handful of peanuts and a sandwich. That can't be good for your system.
Word around town is that Will Smith is not so officially involved with "I Am Legend 2" as we thought he was. Well I actually didn't know they were making a sequel so I guess I didn't think anything. But you get the idea. In a recent interview Big Willy said he has no involvement with the project right now but may if the script turns out to be great. What a magical world it would be if we could all call our boss every morning and say I'm not really into work today but if it turns out to be fun there give me a ring and I'll head in. But maybe not.
"In the Dark" is a new horror anthology and today we've got some exciting casting news for one if its sequences titled "To Be Loved". Gwendolyn Sweet, whom the 15 people that still subscribe to Playboy will recognize as a model of theirs, will play the lead in the chapter that follows a young lass who looks to be sweet and innocent on the outside but has a dark twisted side that comes out behind closed doors. Full disclosure here, I subscribed to Playboy for close to ten years and for the past 2 years they call me at least once a month asking me to come back. It's pretty funny to listen to a 75 year old woman ask me about my Playboy subscription. I recommend it to everyone.
There's really nothing funny about The West Memphis Three. A true life story about 3 teens who were imprisoned for close to 10 years for a murder they didn't commit. The film about the whole ordeal titled "Devil's Knot" is in the works and today we've learned that both Dane DeHaan and Amy Ryan have been added to the cast. I mean "Devil's Knot" is kind of funny, cause you know it sounds like a porn. But other than that this is 100% serious.
Kathy Baker will always hold a special place in my heart as the slutty chick who wanted to bang Edward Scissorhands really bad. I didn't get out much as a kid. And now she's been cast in the film "Model Home" along side Monique Gabriela Curnen. The flick tells the story of a single mother who's recruited to live in unsold homes and finds herself entertaining dangerous thoughts. I have no fond memories of Monique but the first girl who saw me nude had that same name and she had weird sunken eyes so that's something I guess.

Apparently there's some kind of video out there called "1 lunatic, 1ice pick" and a Canadian high school teacher showed it to her class. She's been suspended without pay. That's all I want to know about this.
Tuesday is the worst day of the week for most people. What you might not know is that in days of old villages would sacrifice a cow every Tuesday. Of course back then a month of 30 days only had 2 Tuesdays, it's just the way the week was set up. But over time most villages ran out of cows because of all the sacrifices. Most townsfolk starved to death. This is in fact what wiped out the dinosaurs.
"The Cabin In the Woods" has a trailer! I still have no idea what the movie is about but I can 100% confirm there is in fact a cabin and it is in fact in the woods.
"The Devil Inside" is yet another addition to the long list of exorcism flicks that have made their ways into our hearts over the past couple years. But hey here's some new screen shots from the film and they look like they were filmed on some crappy VHS recorder that they found at the back of someone's mother's closet so that's something new. I'm not saying it's a good thing, I'm just saying it's new.
The Ring Lord himself Mr. Peter Jackson has recently wrapped up production on a new documentary about the "West Memphis Three", a true story about three men who were wrongfully accused for the murder of three 8-year-old boys and subsequently spent 18 years in prison. I don't have any sarcastic comments here, cause ya know even I'm not that big of a monster. I'm close... but not that big.
You ever see that movie "The Warriors"? Man it's awesome. I love the speech that main guy gives about "turf" just before all hell breaks loose. It's so dope, son. Anyway the movie "Turf" is a big screen adaptation of a graphic novel by the same name and has absolutely nothing to do with that speech or "The Warriors". There's a bunch of gangsters, vampires and aliens battling it out in 1920's New York though. Oh man, The Baseball Furies! They scared the crap out of me.

Halloween is long gone my friends but for a group of high school kids in Miami the memories are still fresh in their heads. Why you might ask? Well because the school's on duty cop came to school dressed as a gynecologist named "Harry Beaver" and the shit is still in fact hitting the fan.
This should probably go without saying but never, EVER, ever try to rob an MMA fighter. You will in fact get your ass kicked.
