If you think the Twilight Saga is as craptastic as I do (but still watch the movies for shits and giggles), please do check out this scrumtrulescent review my dear friend Liz at Kills Me Dead wrote upon seeing New Moon.

You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll hurl.

Sheriff Eric Northman > Kinda King Aro. Aro was still kind of hilarious, although I’m sick of people making “You’re such a curious oddity” eyes at Bella all the time. Pro tip: you can’t read her thoughts because she doesn’t have any of her own.

The good news: Bryan Singer is set to produce and direct a Battlestar Galactica movie!

The bad news: The movie will be based on the original show and it won’t feature any of the GOOD parts Ron Moore created!

Glen Larson is also going to produce, and as he famously hated on the reimagined series, I think we can all count on lots of Star Wars ripoffs and Gold Lamé capes. Although just for laughs I’d love it if they brought back the old school robots. With all the technological advances that have been made since 1978, it would be hilarious to use dudes in shiny costumes.

And in other BSG news, Amazon has Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series on sale for $175! It’s finally out!

One of my favorite actors is going to be starring in one of my favorite stories! By an awesome director! Huzzah!

Ridley Scott and Leonardo DiCaprio will direct and star in a movie adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, about a utopian future in which state-encouraged orgies and drug-taking are the norm. Also, children are born and raised in hatcheries and conditioning centers, so you’ll never find a crying baby in your movie theater or airplane. DiCaprio will likely play Bernard, the guy who tries to screw things up for everybody.

First of all let me just say HAPPY LOST DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you’ve got a Livejournal account and you’ll be watching Lost at 10 p.m. EST, come hang out at my ongoing Lost post! It will be posted here a few minutes before the show begins. Make sure to bring your capslock.

  • Remember those Lost theories we submitted last week to USA Today? They have been answered! Read each theory, then give it a grade to see what Damon and Carlton say about it. Snark is running high as Damon and Carlton react to fans’ ideas!!

    When presented with the “The island is stuck in 1988 theory”

    Lindelof: “What I love about this theory is that for some reason the island has remained locked in 1988 while the rest of the universe proceeds normally. It makes me wonder what happened in 1988 that this person wants this world to forever be 1988.”

    Cuse: “The person could be a Cyndi Lauper fan.”

    Lindelof: “I think she had already peaked. By ‘88, we’re talking about U2 and INXS. Just the idea that everybody on the island is in 1988 is pretty crazy.”

  • Ausiello’s got spoilers out the ying yang for Lost, The BSG spinoff Caprica, The Office, The Office’s own spinoff, and more.
  • Some scans of an article about Michael Trucco and his car accident from TV Guide. I cannot BELIEVE those scars. He’s kind of my hero.
  • And they are only photos OF photos, but Hot Damn!!! Tricia Helfer, Katee Sackhoff, and Grace Park in bikinis. Yowzahs.
  • Here’s a really interesting Final Cylon theory that I think makes a lot of sense…although I still think it’s Gaeta!
  • Ricky Gervais has an awesome blog post about his new movie This Side of Truth including photos of him, Tina Fey, and Rob Lowe…and toy guns. The best bit is the candid shot of Christopher Guest “preparing for his role.”
  • Speaking of Tina Fey, MSNBC is saying she’s the funniest person out there right now. As much as I love Ms. Fey and all the attention she is getting, I’d love to finally see an article about her that doesn’t include the words “It’s true, women can be funny.” Sigh.
  • The Deadbolt’s got 10 Movies they want to see this summer (and 5 that make them nervous). Number one on my list is definitely Pineapple Express, which stars the love of my life, Seth Rogen.
