The best part of this video, released this week, isn’t Witherspoon’s indignant response to her overly delayed arrest, it’s not her pompous and brazen attitude as she shouts “Do you know my name?” or “This is going to be national news!“
No, sir. The most wonderful part of this video is when her husband, Jim Toth, drunkenly attempts to plead with her for some kind of sanity.
If there’s any lesson that can be learned here, it’s to not say “fuck the police” but simply bitch at them until they’re forced to treat you like a petulant child…oh, and also tell the cops you’re pregnant. That’ll win them over.
Shame on you, Laura Jeanne Reese…
It’s just another day in the uncontrollable and unpredictable life of Lindsay Lohan. The not-quite-legal events of yesterday wherein Lohan skirted her 90 days of rehabilitation in her home state of New York have come to a close. Her lawyer, Mark Heller, told a judge that she had actually checked in to Morningside Rehab in Newport Beach so that she could smoke cigarettes. (Newport Beach, get it?)
But Lindsay for the Whoops! She never actually showed up, and instead went shopping at a nearby Fry’s electronics store.
Fortunately for us all, Lohan is now snug-as-a-bug-crawling-under-her-skin at the Betty Ford Center.
Good luck, Lindsay. We don’t want you to end up like this:
I’m glad Michael Bay was forced to continue his downhill spiral of Transfomers films because it keeps him away from projects that people actually give a shit about. The fans (and I use that term loosely) had finally managed to open Bay’s eyes about his upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles project, changing his concept from alien turtles back to ooze-created mutant turtles. This is, of course, a great sign, but we must also remember that it is Michael Bay and whether alien or mutant, there’s a good chance the film is a clusterfuck anyway.
In this fourth–and hopefully final–installment in the Transformers franchise will feature actors Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci taking lead roles, leaving behind the Shia Labeouf and Megan Fox days of old. And now we’re getting the news of the big bad villain!
That’s right! Kelsey Fucking Grammer, whom I have no doubt can play a convincing bad guy. I mean, even real Kelsey Grammer freaks me out–let alone him portraying Harold Attinger, a counterintelligence agent who presumably decides to take on giant transforming robots.
The real question at this point is: Who cares anymore? Really. No matter what you thought of the Transformers franchise as a whole, surely it’s lost its appeal from the first time you saw that larger-than-life trailer for the first installment. It just goes to show that not everything you loved from your childhood should see the light of day again.
I don’t think I’ll ever understand any decision Michael Bay makes. But in most ways, I think I’m better for it.
And so Marvel’s Phase Two begins, with a crash, a bang, a wallop and, strangely enough, the unmistakable, toe-tapping intro to Eiffel 65’s late-’90s Europop hit, “I’m Blue (Da Ba Dee, Da Ba Da).” “Iron Man 3” is Marvel Studio’s first theatrical release since their epic superhero team-up “The Avengers” kicked movie-goers’ butts in the summer of 2012 (and in doing so, raked in over $1 billion at the international box office), and it was feared that everyone’s favourite man-in-a-can would crumble under the immense weight of Joss Whedon’s huge-scale juggernaut – just how would Tony Stark’s next solo outing fare without the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes tagging along for the ride?
Quite well, it turns out: co-written and directed by legendary “Lethal Weapon” scribe and “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” helmer Shane Black – as should be obvious from the get-go, what with Robert Downey, Jr.’s meta-riffic opening narration and the otherwise inexplicable Christmastime setting – this first film in the build-up to 2015’s “The Avengers 2” stands sturdily and mightily on its own two feet, bursting with personality, sizzling with wicked humour, soaring with high-octane thrills and packing an almighty wallop of a plot twist that’s guaranteed to split the comic-book crowd in two – in the age of pesky internet spoilers and overly revelatory studio marketing, it’s refreshing to see a blockbuster with genuine shocks and surprises in store.
Most surprising of all though, is how mature Marvel’s latest output is – have you ever seen a superhero movie tackling the harrowing effects of PTSD? That’s what super-snarky superhero Tony Stark is having to deal with, and it’s turned his high life upside down: following his near-death experience in New York (i.e. the alien-busting finale of “The Avengers,” wherein Tony travelled through a wormhole into space), the self-described “genius, playboy, billionaire, philanthropist” is now an insomniac, frightened for the safety of his beloved Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), crippled by anxiety attacks and spending his nights in the basement of his ocean-view pad, obsessively building new armours to help keep his mind busy and distracted.
