That trailer for A Christmas Story 2 is a poignant reminder just how great Home Alone was.

There is also a longer version, which has a skit with Murray at the start: God, I wish they would make television again...

August 27, 2012 on Flight Of The Conchords’ Charity Single, “Feel Inside (And Stuff Like That)”
I saw the movie over the weekend (because for some reason, Europe now gets big movies earlier, so suck it) and this was pretty close to my views on the film. Garfield and Stone were wonderful, especially together and the action looked great and fluid. My main problem was that the director couldn't decide between a light romp about a kid with spider-powers or a serious superhero movie. All the light parts are wonderful, but the dramatic heightening was at times just so stupid. I won't go in to spoilers, but there were at least three times they want to do something dramatic and I just went "really?". Which is a shame, because it is 75% fun movie and 25% standard superhero schlock. Still, I would recommend checking it out and it has me excited for the sequels. Also, even though I'm pretty sure there are absolutely no comic book nerd on Videogum: they do put in more stuff from the comics than the Tobey Maguire ones, but then that does not pay off at all. Plus it gave me reason to go into a lengthy tangent about how even though everyone would benefit from it, Spider-man will not be in an Avengers movie.

So Krispy Kreme drops a track called "Best Friends" on the day NBC is airing the last episodes of "Best Friends Forever"? COINCIDENCE? Yes. Still, go watch it #savebff Sidebar: I still need to know who did the theme song for BFF. Thanks.

I thought Community was OK, but I've stated before that I feel these more grounded episodes don't really work, because the characters are such cartoons. Tha's why high-concept episodes work much better. That's why I felt the tag at the end about Abed,s bizarre standup worked so well, especiallt the line 'That's from his album' killed me. This episode had some nice character moments, but nothing really memorable. On an unrelated note, has anyone seen Best Friends Forever? I like the talent involved, but I feel it's pretty uneven in the humor and drama elements, but there is potential that needs time and I'm not sure NBC will give it that. The main reason I bring it up is THAT THEME SONG IS DRIVING ME INSANE! It's a really cool 90's throwback thing, but I can't find what the song is and Googling BFF song lead me to abhorent results...

I don't get the Pete Campbell hate. Everyone seems to hate him, but why? He's probably the guy that works the hardest (and I mean guy, all the women work at least twice as hard), still trying to proce he deserves his job, no matter how he got there, while all the senior partners still treat him as a kid. Is it just because everyone is jealous he knocked up Alison Brie?

Even though last night's episode was understandibly light on stuff actually happening, there were so many great character moments. Sansa slighting Joffrey, Tyrion's joking to the prostitute, John Snow trying to get into the good graces of the weird incest king, Bran as the new lord of Winterfell, all wonderful stuff. Plus all the things they're setting up? I'm so excited! I already can't wait for the next one. Somewhat off topic: how did Melisssandre come across? Because as a Dutchie I love Carice van Houten, but I felt her just having the Dutch accent was such a weird choice for her character. Still, the character was really bad-ass.

Pffft, this is stupid. He doesn't even say to ask if they saw the fight outside or if she knows which movie the quote "Nobody puts baby in the corner" is from. Everyone knows that's the only way to get a girlfriend, middle school or otherwise.

What do I think? I think you should start watching Archer, because it's a really great show and then you could include it with a throw-away line too! Then we could have a jump-off point to talk about it. I also think you should start recapping "Ink Master", but that's a different discussion altogether.

I've never gotten why people think they need a lowest rated for an EGOT. It's not like to get a full EGOT you have to win a Razzie, right? That would make it a REGOT. Or a TEGOR. Or OGRET. You get it.

Now if THIS scene was in "Somewhere' I would have loved that movie. Plus Peter Dinklage would have done a much better job at pretending to be a huge movie star than Stephen Dorff, who did a good job of looking like a gas station attendent.

But he forgot to nomaite Hanna for the best part, which was the amazing score by the chemical Brothers. Those fight scenes with the blasting music? SO GOOD! Also, good call on the guy who played Hemmingway. Would have loved to see more award love for Attack the Block, but whadda ya gonna do?

January 27, 2012 on The OverLookedy’s, or Gabe Liedman Can’t Shut Up About ‘Hanna’
I'm glad they had the clip of Charlize Theron in this episode, because last week I forgot to say "Watch the Theron" and now it's relevant again. So that's a thing. Was not a fan of both challenges, the first was a little too restricted -make anything with shrimp, corn and fettucini- although I was glad that Sarah and Lindsey got their ass kicked by Grayson and Chris. Also very classy of Sarah to say she thought their dish was better. Really? You just lost and are claiming your dish was better than another dish you didn't even taste? Just go home already. The elimination challenge, on the other hand, was so poorly explained. Sure, make it healthier. In what way, less fat, less calories, less sodium, more fiber and how does that compare to better taste? Chris tried to make it too healthy and got kicked out because of it. Last thing: next week looks to be terrible. Pee-Wee? Really? And a bike race? Ugh.

You could actually make a great award ceremony based on the Academy snubs. I didn't see every movie that people are claiming should be in, I would just like to add Hanna for best original score and Attack the Block for score, editing and visual effects at least.

Plus no Shame, no 50/50 (which had a much better chance than Bridesmaids and personally I felt was a better movie), The Ides of March got much too little, given what movies/performances were given nods, same for Drive. And no Patton Oswal!
