SNL Season Opener

I find it kind of funny that most of the people who say "SNL hasn't been funny in years" are people that never even stop to watch it and give it a chance.

The reality is, that over the last 3 - 4 years there has been a lot of really talented young performers on the show, including Amy Poehler, Andy Sambergh, Will Forte and Kristen Wiig.

I never stay up to watch it because as I've covered ad-nauseum on the site, I'm not exactly a night owl. I do love the show though, so the lady and I usually DVR it and watch it on Sunday morning. I know, isn't that cute.

True Blood 1.02 "The First Taste"

Even if True Blood never becomes the great show viewers were hoping for, the second episode give us some indication that it might be a perfectly watchable and entertaining bad show. I'm even starting to wonder if all of the wooden dialogue and all the bad Louisiana by way of Hollywood accents aren't going for some kind of meta soap opera camp vibe. Maybe we should stop measuring the show against Buffy and start comparing it to Dark Shadows. Hell, maybe even Passions.

Horror Headlines 9/15/08

Due to a screwup on my end, recording on last night's show got botched. Don't worry, we won't be leaving you high and dry this week, we will be re-recording tonight so you should see this week's episode (in which we review Uwe Boll's "Postal") some time tomorrow morning. Feel free to call shenanigans on me in the comments.

So apparently someone wants to remake "Terror Train" again, you know, besides the remake that's already been made and is just called "Train" starring Thora Birch. Man, all this attention for a slasher starring David Copperfield. Who knew?

Another pic from "Saw V", and still no one in a trap, you can expect those any day now.

It must be Uwe Boll week here at BGH, because here's a 'making of' featurette for his new video game adaptation "Far Cry". Apparently it did gangbusters in German cinemas recently, although there is no word on when we'll see it here in the states.

Here's a clip from "Vinyan", which premiered last week at the Toronto Film Festival. "Vinyan" concerns a couple on the hunt for their child, who they think may have been captured by Thai pirates. That's a pretty big "maybe" if you ask me. It seems if that did happen it would have been pretty hard to miss.

Adrien Brody chats about "Giallo", Dario Argento's latest film in which he plays the main character.

The remake of John Carpenter's remake of "The Thing" isn't dead after all, as an interview with the director claims at the link. Helmer Marc Abraham also says that the film will be more of a prequel and deal with the events leading up to Carpenter's 1982 classic.

In Real People News: 

Preacher has sex with comatose wife, gets caught on tape. It's okay though, he was apparently "expressing his love for his wife and trying everything he could do to bring her back to consciousness". Is that what the kids are calling it these days? Sounds like a pretty complicated name for "boning a vegetable".

Teacher begins to watch S&M porn videos IN CLASS, forgets to turn projector off. Apparently he made it through 6 videos before he noticed that he was showing the entire class. Man, that's concentration right there.

Police in Italy have still not caught the man who keeps rubbing his greased up balls and butt all over shop windows in the town of Valentine. And now they've given him the clever name "Butt Bandit", which they apparently got after asking a group of 7th grade boys what his nickname should be.

On this day in history: 

1998: Rap artist Coolio is arrested in Lawndale, California after being pulled over for driving a 1996 Hummer on the wrong side of the road. He was carrying an expired license, a loaded 9mm semiautomatic firearm, and a small quantity of marijuana.

Box Office Special - The Changing of the Box

I spent some time two weeks ago talking about the late summer swoon we've seen this year at the box office. And then, only a week later, we hit a notable nadir. Well, apparently all that swooning may have been part of some sort of cathartic cleansing ritual because this week change came to the box office.
