Blade Runner 2 – some people consider it blasphemy, but Ridley Scott has said it’s on his to-do list. Currently, they have scriptwriter Michael Green (Green Lantern) onboard, which inspires no confidence to begin with. And now, another bit of the ridiculous, poppy-star girl Katy Perry has said that she wants a role in the film.
Before people engage in a collective face-palm, please be aware that no casting is taking place and that Perry is just rattling off her fondest wishes. And what role does she think she can bring her unique talents to, you ask? Well, she wants to reprise Rachel from the original Blade Runner. Or in her own words:
“With films, I hope to win you all over with animation and then do other films. I am really interested in comedy, and I would really love to play Rachael in ‘Blade Runner 2,’ if Ridley would just call!”
Yeah… well, there’s just one major problem with that, Miss Perry. The new flick, if Ridley’s early talk is to be believed, will be only loosely connected to the first one’s story and recurring characters are highly unlikely.
And while Perry may have to face disappointment, the rest of us can all breathe a sigh of relief. At least until we see the script that Mr. Green Lantern has put together…
Raja Gosnell is back in the director’s chair for the CG sequel The Smurfs II. This time around we see Gargamel (Hank Azaria) hatching a new plan to get that Smurf stuff he wants and needs, think “Breaking Bad Junkie” bad. He creates the Naughties, a couple of small creatures (voiced by Christina Ricci and JB Smoove) that appear to be like the Smurfs in every way besides skin color.
The Smurfs 2 hits theater screens on July 29, 2013. Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays reprise their roles as the Smurfs’ human pals and protectors, while Alan Cumming, Katy Perry, Anton Yelchin, Fred Armisen, and George Lopez return as their respective Smurfs. Overall the casting is pretty dead on. The story line is said to be:
The evil wizard Gargamel creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. But when he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants – and only a secret spell that Smurfette knows can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs – Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and brings her to Paris, where he has been winning the adoration of millions as the world’s greatest sorcerer. It’s up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy and Vanity to return to our world, reunite with their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow, and rescue her! Will Smurfette, who has always felt different from the other Smurfs, find a new connection with the Naughties Vexy and Hackus – or will the Smurfs convince her that their love for her is True Blue?

If you thought Sesame Street was lame for kicking off Big Bird and Oscar The Grouch, and at the same time making Cookie Monster a ‘healthy eater’ then check out this saucy news brought to us by the Huffington Post. With 1,867 signatures and rising, Lair Scott started a petition to urge the makers of Sesame Street to be open-minded and celebrate New York’s legalization of gay marriage by allowing best friends Bert & Ernie to wed on the popular kids show.
The letter to all those interested or curious about the petition cause reads as follows:
“In this horrific age of LGBT kids taking their own lives, they need to know that they ARE BEAUTIFUL and their lives are worth living. Aside from those that are committing suicide, the bullies that facilitate these tragedies need to learn that homophobia is NOT okay. They need to know that acceptance of their fellow human beings would indeed plant a seed of peace that will reverberate throughout the world. We are not asking that Sesame Street do anything crude or disrespectful by allowing Bert & Ernie to marry. It can be done in a tasteful way. Let us teach tolerance of those that are different. Let Sesame Street and PBS Kids be a big part in saving many worthy lives.”
It may sound crazy, but it has long been rumored and implied that these famous puppets are a hidden representation of a gay couple. Of course the reaction to this petition and its message have been mixed. While some people on the internet (Twitter, FB, and etc.) have encouraged the petition by circulating it, some have scoffed at the accusations that Bert & Ernie are gay, and others are just laughing.
Don’t get me wrong, I have always had a slight gay-dar reading from the two puppet roommates, but like one twitter user stated if Bert & Ernie are married on the grounds that they ‘live’ together than Batman and Robin should be first in line for marriage. ( sorry, Selina Kyle) Plus, as one of my friends stated, if Bert & Ernie are gay wouldn’t that taint a lot of kids childhood fantasies. I’m not on the fence about this issue, but I would like to know if they did get married could Sesame Street lose its conservative family orientated? They made such a big stink about Katy Perry’s dress being too short while doing an innocent rendition of her song “Hot & Cold“, that it seems kind of impossible that these same people would let Bert & Ernie being gay and married be filmed and released to their audience.
If you want to support the cause sign the petition, and put your comments and thoughts about whether you think Bert & Ernie should or shouldn’t get married. Would it ruin your childhood or just salvage whatever is left of the popular kid show?

By now we’ve all seen the live-action Simpsons opener that was used only as a specially produced, promotional tool. Well look’s like a new, actual, live-action episode being created by Fox. Just like every episode of ‘The Simpsons’ it’s gonna have a guest star, which is gonna be international sensation Katy Perry. By live-action we mean green screen and puppets which means Katy is gonna be in a special, Sesame Street style episode. Those folks at PBS must be slapping themselves silly since this is gonna be the best form of payback for Katy Perry.
According to EW, the Dec 5th episode, entitled The Fight Before Christmas, Katy will be involved in her own rendition of The 39 Days of Christmas. Also noted was the fact that she would also be playing the girlfriend of local bartender, Moe Szyslak. This might just be an actually watchable episode since their so-called ‘Glee’ episode sucked harder then Lindsay Lohan with a bottle of Jack Daniels. After all, Katy Perry’s sketch with Sesame Streets Elmo was pulled from being aired (but can be seen here) this is a perfect piece of universal karma.
Sorry for the scare posting this weekend folks, but it’s the Fourth of July weekend. I’m sure you understand. To hold you over here’s a song about girls kissing nerds (yes, such a thing does occur. Though, not very often)
This is a parody of the Katy Perry hit ‘I Kissed a Girl’. Except this one’s called ‘I Kissed a Nerd’. It’s pretty self explanatory. Clever idea and decently executed. It was created by the Damsels of Dorkington. Which is ironic, because the second girl in the video (one in red and slave Leia costume) will never be a damsel or one in distress for that matter. Woof! I’ve seen some hideous fucking chuds (I would say chud-ette but I’m sure this is a tranny) in my day but I belive my dick just fell off. I mean my god she looks like Brittany Murphy’s rotting corpse (RIP). May have to wonder if the main girl is hot or if she is just good looking in comparison.
Just play the video and make like Indiana Jones at the end of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” and shut your eyes. If you do look then we are not reasponsible for your face melting off.
I don’t think there is a sequel, or day I say, spin off, that I have been waiting for more since Willow 2- Revenge of the Peck… However that film never came to fruition, but Get Him To The Greek, the official spin off to Forgetting Sarah Marshall has. With the same director and producers with a most excellent R rating, you have Jonah Hill as a record company intern with the task of getting the very famous (“Yes, for my sins..”) Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) back from England to the Greek Theater in LA….Although Sarah Marshall didn’t bank as highly as Superbad and Knocked Up, it was reviewed with A’s all across the board and I believe is the superior comedy. The thing that makes me nervous about this film is the “in your face”, crazy gross out, over the top humor, while FSM was affixed with much more dialogue driven humor (Not to mention several well placed penis shots).
I thought it would be much funnier if Jonah Hill reprised his role from FSM, the overly obsessed waiter who was borderline gay for Aldous Snow, and whenever they interacted it was terrific chemistry. But now it looks like Hill will be playing another character….Just as well…Can’t fucken Wait!!
