Ugly Betty
Recently Ugly Betty had it’s Series Finale. I was a fan of the show during the first season. I knew I had to check it out because I had been a fan of America’s from Real Women Have Curves and I loved Eric Mabius in Black Circle Boys when I was a teen. Over the next few years it was a little too over the top. I only watched it occasionally. I thought that the finale was really good but they could have made it 2 hours. You can watch it on ABC.

FILM
Netflix
Flicks now streaming on Netflix include Moon (Sam Rockwell), A Scanner Darkly and Tape. I highly recommend all three of these films.

TRAILERS
I Love You Philip Morris-I’ve been dying to see this movie starring Jim Carrey as a newly gay con man who falls for Ewan McGregor. Unfortunately the release date keeps getting pushed. It was March, then April, now it’s fall. At this rate the DVD won’t be out until 2011, sigh.

Dinner For Schmucks-This flick starring Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and Zach Galifianakis is a remake of the 1998 French film the Dinner Game which is very funny. It’s about a group who try to outdo each other by inviting the dumbest guest to dinners. This one looks like a winner.

The Killers-I’m not really sure about this one. It’s an action romantic comedy starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl. She hasn’t made a good romantic comedy yet.

Beastly-This is getting press because of Mary-Kate Olsen appearing in it. It’s like MTV’s take on the Beauty and the Beast fable. I think I would have loved this as a preteen. It could be a big hit.

The Other Guys-Buddy cop comedy starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell as two doofy cops. At least it looks better than Cop Out.

The Big Lebowski
: A XXX Parody-You know I love these porn parody trailers.

I love Lindsay Lohan’s music. Her new single Stuck has just started getting some play.

Britney Spears
There are rumors of a new Britney Spears album being released this summer. A singer named Myah Marie (Stiletto Sex) is used to sing demo songs for Britney so she can choose those she wants to record.

Australian actor Alex O’Loughlin came to my attention in 2007 when he starred as Mick the private eye vampire in Moonlight. I loved this series. This was prior to the whole vampire craze of Twilight and True Blood. It had poor ratings and was canceled after one season.

Recently he starred in the medical drama Three Rivers. Despite the show being set in Pittsburgh, PA (not far from me) it didn’t really interest me and I didn’t watch it. I’m not a hospital show type of gal although I do watch Grey’s Anatomy & Private Practice occasionally.

Now O’Loughlin is starring in the newest J. Lo vehicle The Back-up Plan which is a cheesy romantic comedy. So I’m all over that.

Up next Alex will be playing Det. Steve McGarrett in a remake of the series Hawaii Five-O.

You may have noticed that I don’t usually write about food. I don’t have a discerning palette and I don’t go out to fancy restaurants. I rarely eat out and I don’t cook. I eat a lot of frozen or dried meals. When I saw the new KFC Double Down I thought it looked pretty cool. However a quick search for reviews yielded mostly blurbs about how it was gross and they were practically forced to eat because they’re reviewers. Plus it always seems to be a shock to people that fast food has a lot of calories and fat. Duh. You’re not supposed to eat it all the time. So I thought I’d do my own.

KFC Double Down Collage

The KFC Double Down is the new bunless sandwich at KFC. It’s 2 chicken filets with 2 slices of bacon, 2 slices of cheese (pepper jack & monterey jack) and the Colonel’s Sauce in the middle. You can get it in original recipe or grilled. It comes in a wrapper so you can hold it without getting your fingers greasy. The meal deal was $6.99 at my local KFC (Southwest Pennsylvania) or $4.99 for just the sandwich. I opted for the original recipe meal.

The sandwich seemed kind of small in comparison to the container. I had a hard time trying to eat it like a sandwich so after a couple of bites I pulled it apart and ate with a fork. The best part of the sandwich was the chicken. The cheese wasn’t completely melted. I am usually a big fan of cheese but I just didn’t like the kind they used. The flavor was off. It would also taste better with more bacon. The special sauce was okay but nothing to write home about. Due to the sauce and cheese it has a slightly spicy flavor.

It was okay but in the future I’ll stick with my favorite KFC item the Twister.

Death at a Funeral is Neil LaBute’s new dark comedy about a family who come together at their father’s funeral and learn more than they wanted to know about him. It stars Chris Rock, Loretta Devine, Peter Dinklage, Danny Glover, Regina Hall, Martin Lawrence, James Marsden, Tracy Morgan, Zoe Saldana and Luke Wilson. It is a remake of Frank Oz’s 2007 British film of the same name. The original film stars Ewen Bremner, Alan Tudyk and Peter Dinklage. Dinklage reprises the role he played in the original film. The original was released in the US but without much fanfare.

Ryan: “So you come to a lot of funerals?”

Aaron: “Come on man. She’s like in the 12th grade.” Ryan: “Well she might be in 12th grade but that ass is in grad school.”

Oscar: “Did you just see that?” Elaine: “See what?” Oscar: “That coffin just moved.”

Aaron: “Look at the damn body man. You got Jackie Chan in there.”

Aaron: “It’s not Burger King. You can’t just mess up my order.”

Ryan: “You gonna bring a gat to a funeral?”

Jeff: “What you thought was Valium was not actually Valium, Yikes.”

Uncle Russell: “Let’s just burn him and get it over with.”

Elaine: “I was drunk. You could’ve been a donkey for all I knew.” Derek: “Thank you.”

Norman: “Damnit Uncle Russell. I love you but you gonna be in the box next.”

Ryan: “If I don’t get some money soon I’m gonna have to do a damn reality show, It’s Hammer Time.”

Oscar: “Let’s go. Join the others.”

Aaron: “Let me get this straight. Our father was bromantically involved with a guy that could fit in his pocket and you’re mad cuz he’s white?

Ryan: “You tellin’ me our father was on the down low?” Aaron: “Way down low.”

Ryan: “I didn’t know he did yoga.”

Aaron: “Were you guys friends?” Frank: “Something like that.”

You may not be aware but independent filmmakers have been raising money on the net to fund their movies for a few years via Myspace and eBay. I have even contributed to a few of them. The thing is usually you usually have to wait for an unspecified amount of time to see the movie get made because it can take a long time to raise those funds. Plus many of the filmmakers are first timers which means you have no idea if the movie you’ve backed will actually be good.

How Do You Write A Joe Schermann Song is different in 2 ways: 1. They are using Kickstarter and 2. The director is Gary King who already has many quality films under his belt. Kickstarter lets you pledge money to a project and that project isn’t completed unless they receive the full amount they are asking for. This means you don’t have to wait an undefined amount of time before you hear about the movie getting filmed.


photo from the official What’s Up Lovely site.

Now let me tell you about Gary King. King first came to my attention in 2008 while attending Horrorfind Weekend which is an annual horror movie convention. Gary King was there to screen his film Dismal. He also brought the cast who cheerfully signed posters and photos and posed for pictures after the screening. I thought the movie was awesome. Later I found the film, actors and King on Myspace. When I started using twitter I followed King on there and found out that he makes a variety of films. I haven’t been able to see his other films but I do watch the trailers and read his blog and they look really good. Don’t take my word for it though, his film What’s Up Lovely was listed on various film sites as one of the best films of 2009. King is very friendly to fans and supportive of other independent filmmakers on his twitter.

According to the official site How Do You Write A Joe Scherman Song? is “intimate tale about an aspiring Broadway songwriter who jeopardizes his relationships and budding career after he begins working with a talented singer”. For more on the film visit the official site and then go donate on Kickstarter. There is about a day left and the film needs a little under $3000 to get funded. You can donate as little as $1. I think that a really cool, affordable pledge is $151 because you receive a “Special Thanks” credit, copy of the movie, soundtrack, poster and DVDs of King’s previous films, New York Lately and What’s Up Lovely.
