Is it just me, or did Oprah really start giving him a hard time after he told her that "retiring is the selfish decision." Not the right person to say that to, Jay.

Seesh, I'm on a roll. I meant to reply to Lindsay's comment.

Yeah, that part reminded me of Bad Boys II with the cars rolling down the freeway in slow motion only instead of SUVs, it was Robert Downey Jr. and Rachel McAdams. I also like how Jude Law only suffers a broken arm after that explosion, and is back in fighting form over the course of a day. Lucky guy!

Nope I didn't! I feel like that guy in Sherlock Holmes who gets rained on with secret poison/gasoline and tries to shoot the bad guy (in this case, the "bad guy" is my brain) but blows up instead while everybody else is drinking the anecdote. That's basically me right now.

Yikes, I thought Sherlock Holmes was pretty stupid. That villain was terrible. He built a special machine that releases a toxic chemical that will kill everybody except for the few in his little club that drank the SPECIAL ANECDOTE? How does this make any sense? Scooby Doo himself would have been shaking his head at these dumb explanations.

Yikes, now I'm thinking I could be wrong. Since I saw the movie, I've been talking that joke UP. Does anybody else wanna weigh in?

I'm pretty sure he said loyal. The joke being she's only staying at his lab table out of loyalty, but she doesn't really wanna be there. The joke wouldn't have made sense otherwise.

"I thought you were MY lab partner." "I am." "No you're not. You're just loyal." Best dialogue since, well, Inglorious Basterds. Seriously though, I laughed so hard at that part.

Yep, I'm a real person. Sarah Palin fans who read Videogum actually do exist.

I like this lady. Thanks for uploading the interview in its entirety. You've done all of Sarah Palin's fans on this board (me) a real favor.

Man, I remember the good ol' days when the first Saw movie was a benign joke of a movie that you could watch with friends cause if nothing else, it was bringing the comedy (Hellooooo Monica Potter). I know I'm stating the obvious but this is legitimately depressing.

YEAH! I second that nomination, Rush Hour 3 is completely horrific.

I absolutely agree, one of the best things about this season has been how much Trudy and Pete actually seem to love each other and be real partners in a real marriage. One of the best moments last night was Trudy kissing Pete after Don and Roger left. Aw shucks.

He apologizes to someone? Ok everybody, David Spade apologizes to the ONE PERSON who was offended by these totally awesome ads. We can all go home now, it's cool.

Whoops, I meant DirecTV, obvs. Gotta maintain the integrity of this wonderful company by making sure we spell their wonderful name correctly.

October 27, 2009 on David Spade’s Publicist Makes No Apologies For Disgraceful Farley Ad
I'm surprised that this is the first DirctTv ad that's making people angry. Remember when Naomi Watts was an oscar nominated actress who was doing some of the most interesting, dynamic dramatic projects out there? (Mulholland Drive, 21 Grams) and then did a DirectTV ad where King Kong blows wind in her face? Yikes, how about Sigourney Weaver getting airbrushed within an inch of her life to look like Ripley in Aliens again? This David Spade ad is the biggest and most obvious "thing that makes you sad" in a long line of things that have been making me continually sad.

I'm so happy Don left that Manic-Pixie Dreamgirl in the car. She was really wearing my nerves (probably cause they rushed her storyline and failed to make her a real person).

October 13, 2009 on Jamie Foxx FINALLY Breaks His Legendary Silence To Address The Roman Polanski Issue
I'm liking the show less and less as the season goes on. One thing I loved about the 1st and especially 2nd season was that you had genuine sympathy for ALL the characters, you understood their weaknesses and rooted for them anyway. You even loved Pete in a weird way, and felt all the more devastated when Peggy told him about their child. No such luck this season, as suddenly Don has become a caricature of an Angry Prick. Simply put, there are too many Villains (Don, Rodger), and Victims (Sal, and pretty much all the women on this show), and the divide between them is becoming both predictable and obvious. Also, before we compare Don Draper to Tony Soprano, I need to point out that Tony Soprano was a mob boss, and killed people on a regular basis, so we couldn't have been too surprised when he became hard to like. Don, on the other hand, isn't a sociopath beneath his bad behavior, so I think we're allowed to be frustrated when he becomes increasingly horrible. Also, MORE JOAN PLEASE.

That quick cut in the school scene made it look like Sally was wiping poop on her face, not blood. (I'm really sorry. I needed to vent about that somewhere.)

T.I.'s left eye looks crazy and sunken in and Hayden Christiansen's facial expression looks almost as douchey as Ron's on the Harry Potter 6 posters.

He already did that with Natalie Portman. Sorry, but that video was boooring, and Natalie is doing the exact same thing that Charlize is making fun of in the first half of this video (i.e. "oh man, awkward, this guy is so weird, help me out, etc. etc. etc.)

How about A History of Violence? It's really embarrassingly bad, and also could be another entry in the "Horrible Movies That Somehow Got Nominated for Oscars" category. Seriously, it's terrible.
