Prince Poppycock or Jackie Evancho? Fighting Gravity or Michael Grimm? Tonight one act left $1 million richer, headed for the bright lights of Las Vegas. In a few seconds I’ll be revealing that winner, so if you haven’t seen the AGT finale yet and are averse to spoilers, well, away you go! Now that we have an understanding, the season 5 winner is…
The Last Exorcism debuted to $9.4 million on Friday. However, based solely on the reaction in my theater, I have doubts about how well the film is going to hold up in a world where reactions spread at the speed of a Twitter bird. The reason? That sudden ending. I actually dug the ending for reasons I’ll explain below, but my fellow moviegoers loudly voiced their disapproval. As soon as the end credits appeared, my audience groaned while a few individuals let out chants of “What?” and “Bulls–t!” Were people merely disappointed that the movie didn’t answer all of their questions? That the conclusion wasn’t wrapped up in a pretty little bow? Or that the movie, as one young man exclaimed while leaving the theater, “wasn’t nearly as scary as Paranormal Activity?” My thoughts after the jump. There will be SPOILERS.

Unlike her tear-splashed courtroom face or those tragic pictures of her passed out in a car, Lindsay Lohan appears on the September cover of Maxim looking — dare we say it — good. In the interview, the 24-year-old starlet, who yesterday was transferred to a rehab facility after serving 13 days in jail for violating her probation, talks about her recent downward spiral and, from the excerpts, she seems to have been drinking some of the self-help juice, philosophizing that “this too shall pass” and “stay true to yourself always.”
Well, it’s going to take a lot more than Deepak Chopra-isms to win this Mean Girls fan back. What do you guys think of the article? Is Lohan winning you over? Will she ever?

Hit! Or miss? According to Variety, Rihanna will make her feature film acting debut in the live action adaptation of the popular Hasbro ’80s game that I spent long summer afternoons playing at my neighbor Christina Lockwood’s house. (Quick question: If you were Rihanna’s manager, would you want her to start small, with a tiny but juicy role in a modest indie, or go straight for the shiny dollars of a Hasbro movie?) On the surface, this whole project sounds rather silly. The game was a great one to be sure, but the prospect of Rihanna’s rooster hair standing immobile in an ocean gale as alien forces bombard a destroyer is worrisome. That said, I do love director Peter Berg, if for nothing else than his decision to cast Tim McGraw in the marvelous Friday Night Lights and employ Explosions in the Sky on the even better soundtrack. The prospect of FNL‘s Taylor Kitsch and True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgard as Batttleship‘s war-ready brothers does make my cheeks flush. If nothing else, this will be the prettiest cast ever assembled under one Hollywood sound stage. Universal has already set a May 25, 2012 release date.
What do you umbrella owners think? Is this an enterprise you can get behind? Does Rihanna coming aboard make you more or less skeptical? The Friday Night Lights soundtrack is among my top 5 soundtracks of all time — up there with the Mission, True Romance, She’s Having a Baby, and You Can Count on Me. What’s on your list of top 5 soundtracks?
A lot of people who enjoyed the first couple of seasons of the delightful Mary Louise Parker as suburban pot dealer drama have since abandoned the series at some point along the way. But the new preview (embedded below) for season 6, which premieres Aug. 16, may be enough to renew their interest. The Botwins have rechristened themselves the Newmans, on the run to the Northern climes where the twisted brood might find some normalcy in their lives. I love their hotel jobs, I love Justin Kirk in white, I love a good Linda Hamilton sighting, I love the increasingly bats*** little brother. (For whatever reason, I can do without Nancy’s wig.)
