Will these Taiwanese computer-animated news segments ever get old? There was the Tiger Woods one, the Lindsay Lohan one, and now, the Snooki one. Does it include Snooki bonking Obama on the head with a wine bottle? Boy, does it! READ FULL STORY »

Oh, yes. This is Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s hair right now. He’s a star he’s a star he’s a star, just like Dirk Diggler.
Wish Bear, legit star of Care Bears: Big Wish Movie and other important films, is so puzzled. Who is that taller bear with insufficient fur, trying to cop his signature logo and hue? Silly Wish Bear. It’s The Situation. “S-I-T-U-A-T-I-O-N”; just ask the pizza guy on last night’s ‘Jersey Shore’. The More You Know…. [Dlisted]

A very hairy debate has heated up in today’s Sexy Beast matchups post. Our commenter-beasts are roaring at each other within the PopWatch castle walls — shaking their manes, baring their fangs, chasing their own tails as old as time! Even I don’t know what that means.
The question: Which variation from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is hotter: Beast-Beast or Human-Beast? The answer has been so obvious to me (Beast-Beast!) for two decades that it pains me to even ask. But ask I shall, because I am truly intrigued by those of you who find Human-Beast more attractive. Explain yourselves! And before you do, please note that a quick IMDB search indicates that Human-Beast’s name was “Prince Adam” (?!) and that the weird line above his obscenely unbuttoned homeless-resortwear blouse is not an eyelash on your computer screen or a lame tattoo intended to humorously offset his one strand of jagged hair. Nope. It is cleavage. There it is.
Who is the Ultimate Sexy Beast? Sweet 16 matchups!

The trailer for Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage may have you scratching your head until you realize that it’s an homage to Ray Harryhausen’s Dynamation. Then, you hope that Patrick Stewart, whose voice fills the preview, knows what he’s doing and that this will do Harryhausen, who turned 90 last month, proud. Watch the trailer below, along with a crash course on Dynamation — a combination of “animation, normal human action, and trick photo effects in color” as seen in The 7th Voyage of Sinbad. (“The out-flung arm of the sleeping princess actually shrinks before your eyes. This effect was achieved by taking the camera back slowly for 40 feet. To prevent the slightest movement of the arm, Kathryn Grant was tied to a stake, remaining motionless and scarcely even breathing.” Awesome.) READ FULL STORY »
The trailer for Yogi Bear, the big-screen 3-D frolic in the forest featuring the voices of Dan Aykroyd as Yogi and Justin Timberlake as Boo Boo, is going to be polarizing. There will be those who say, “What is Anna Faris doing in a ABC Family original starring Snow 2: Brain Freeze‘s Tom Cavanagh, whose eyes are so blue?” And there will be those who accept that this is a movie for kids and recognize that they will laugh, perhaps hysterically, at all the wacky physical humor. I just hope they don’t notice that the guard rail Yogi repeatedly smacks his butt against when Boo Boo’s trying to pull him into a moving train didn’t exist when Yogi was running. (Though that gaffe could just be a result of trailer editing. We’ll have to see the movie to find out!) READ FULL STORY »
here.) Granted, the crude-looking footage, showing a couple of actors fighting at the edge of the sea with a laughably goofy-looking cyclops, is no Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, and is certainly a hell of a long way from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Still, when I was 15, I would never have had the patience, discipline, or drive to attempt anything as exacting and painstaking as stop-motion animation. Even today, I can hardly videotape one of my daughters’ school holiday performances without making a blurry, shaky mess of it. Anyway, watch the charming clip of Jackson screening his footage and reflect in the comments below on your own misspent youth.Attending a BAFTA tribute to special-effects pioneer Ray Harryhausen recently, director Peter Jackson treated the audience to a few minutes of footage from a Harryhausen-esque epic he’d shot himself as a 15-year-old kid dreaming of cinematic glory in New Zealand.
