Sure, because of Oscar’s endlessly perplexing rules it was only up against some song from the fun but forgettable animated musical Rio, but nonetheless it seemed a sign that the Muppets were undeniably back.

Val Kilmer Wields a Chainsaw Onstage For Terrence Malick’s New Movie


By: Katey Rich Terrence Malick movies aren’t generally associated with chainsaw-wielding maniacs, or intense violence of any kind really, which is why we’re trying and failing to make sense of the new photo from the set of his upcoming movie. With the Fun Fun Fun Fest happening in Austin, Texas, Malick and his actors are on hand to shoot scenes on and around the concert stages, for a film that apparently involves live music (as per usual, Malick isn’t saying anything about []

Week 44 2012


Aquaman #13 The Others: Finale This is a great comic. Was it a little cheesy, well yeah, but it was cheesy in a good way.
