Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

Welcome to the weekend preview everyone, check out what’s happening this weekend and decide what you’re going to do.  The City Strip will be up on Monday, catch up on all the comics here.  Follow us on Twitter and Facebook because my mom says those are cool.

Captain America: The Winter SoldierRT (92%)Trailer

I tried to make a winter pun for the title of this post for a few minutes before realizing GoT deserved better.  The reviews are in for Captain America and people love it, saying it’s the best Marvel movie to date too!  I don’t know if it can get better than Iron Man 3, but good on them for trying.  It seems Marvel has found a way to tell a good story and pull off great action all while having smug characters deliver funny lines; the way super hero movies should be if you ask me.  Maybe not Batman so much, he should brood as much as possible.

Limited Releases: Under the Skin, Frankie & Alice, Dom Hemingway

TV Notables:

Hannibal (Friday, NBC) – Kevin and I were texting like little girls last week, gushing about this show.  It’s the best looking show on TV is on takeaway from that conversation; another is that not enough people watch it yet and it deserves so much attention.  It’s not just the look, it’s the great writing and cast.  I wouldn’t change a thing about this show, I trust they know what they are doing every week and that’s rare.

WrestleMania (Sunday, PPV) – You know you’re old when you watched WrestleMania VI, and now they’re up to XXX.  Good for them, and tanning studios.

Shameless (Sunday, Showtime) – The other great show on TV is becoming more and more popular each season, and rightfully so.  These episodes this season are full of non-stop holy sh*t moments and hilarity.  It’s the season finale, enjoy.

Game of Thrones (Sunday, HBO) – Season 4 of the fantasy series begins; the unforgiven brutality has definitely changed how people watch the series (and TV in general) – don’t have favorite characters is one point of advice.  Ryan is caught up on the books and says a lot of “crazy things” should happen this season if they use the material.  What say you Mother of Dragons?

Daenerys-Targaryen

The CoF Weekend Preview: Girls Just Wanna Crack Skulls

For those who said Jon Hamm shouldn't play Superman. Your argument is invalid.

Here is our weekend preview of what is opening in theaters and what you might want to catch on TV.  Have a great weekend everyone, check back Sunday night for a Box Office Report and as always, we return Monday with a brand new City Strip in 3D! (not really).  And Here We…Go!

SUCKER PUNCHIMDBRT (21%)

The film follows a young woman in the 1950s about to be lobotomized as she attempts to escape an asylum with her inmate friends.  One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest with hot girls fighting evil forces, I’ll give it a pass because I have hope that director Zack Snyder doesn’t take this movie’s inevitable tank personally and spite us with a the upcoming Superman reboot he’s working on.  He might go mental and cast Dean Cain!  Everyone go see this movie.  Twice.

DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: RODRICK RULESIMDBRT (40%)

I saw the first Diary, it was a pleasure much like How to Eat Fried Worms, both based on the kids books of the same name.  You can’t get angry at kids being kids.  Here is some interesting facts, the first Diary had a budget of $15M, and it made $76M.  Our sequel this weekend was made for $21M (I bet it’s because there is another kid on the poster) and will be sure to make it’s money back if not this weekend, then before next Friday.  Then you have DVD sales and bam:  In an interview star Devon Bostick said that “Diary of A Wimpy Kid 3″ could be in the works and is “90% sure it will happen” depending on the success of Rodrick Rules.

And Such:

  • Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO, Friday) – Tonight’s guests are Jeremy Scahill, David Brooks, Ed Rendell, Tina Brown and Ellen Page.  Mmmm Ellen page.
  • The Ricky Gervais Show (HBO, Friday) – The discuss leg rubbing on this episode, nothing wrong with that.  Below is a picture of Ricky before and after.  Before when he was a pop start and after when he was our hero.  [his blog]
  • Mildred Pierce (HBO, Sunday) – Kate Winslet stars in the title role of the HBO Miniseries presentation, the five-part miniseries starts Sunday [read more in our HBO 2011 post].
  • Shameless (Showtime, Sunday) – This is the season finale, one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time, it’s great and you should all be watching.
  • Californication (Showtime, Sunday)  – Season finale, it’s been a very good season.  Last week we saw Duchovny’s character Hank give a cute nod to his last great character, Mulder [see].

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

william h. macyShameless is an upcoming drama series to air on Showtime. It is based on the award-winning British hit show of the same name. Showtime plans to air the series as a mid-season replacement in January 2011.

This is the trailer for Shameless, starring William H. Macy as the alcoholic father of a blue-collar Chicago family. Emmy Rossum plays Fiona, his oldest daughter and the de facto adult in the family, and Joan Cusack will play an agoraphobic neighbor in the series.

This show looks great, like Roseanne on crack, so of course I’ll be watching.  If you’re not watching Showtime or HBO, you’re not watching TV.  Trailer: (more…)
