What Christian Bale Whispered In Robert DeNiro’s Ear Last Night

At the end of Christian Bale's acceptance speech for Best Crack Face at last night's Golden Globes, he started to say something about Robert DeNiro but his mic was cut off. Here is what he said. SPOILER ALERT: it's boring, unnecessary, and fawning. Just like the Golden Globes! More »

The Fighter: A Movie Review

WHO'S GONNA TRAIN ME?! Did you know that The Fighter, based on the novel Mickey Ward by Precious, is David O'Russell's first movie in six years? Whoops. I mean, come on, that guy is so good at making movies! I know that I Heart Huckabees was problematic, but he really should be making more… More »

The Fighter Trailer, You Guys

This looks great! Admittedly, if you turn the trailer into a drinking game where you have to drink every time someone says "he's my brother" or "he taught me everything I know," you would already be trashed, and I bet if you turned the full movie into a drinking game with the same rules, well,… More »

Kid Cudi Adds Rhymes, Christian Bale To LCD Soundsystem’s “Dance Yrself Clean”

When evaluating LCD Soundsystem's newest, we said This Is Happening opener “Dance Yrself Clean” gets things going perfectly. It's a great establishing shot, Murphy suggesting you laugh things off and cut a rug instead, even when the push/pull remains. Seeing that instrumental opening section as a blank slate, Kid Cudi takes the song… More »

Christian Bale Probably Wishing He’d Saved That Melt Down For Now

This is a picture of Christian Bale on the set of his new movie, The Fighter (via JustJared). YOINKS. As you can see, he's lost a lot of weight like that other time he lost a lot of weight, but this time he has also had his hair thinned out. You know, acting! More »

The Videogum Movie Club: Terminator: Salvation

Back in the mid-90s, when I was just entering my late 40s (right after my first divorce), my dad picked me up from a movie theater in Chicago where I had just seen a Saturday matinee with a friend. On the drive home, he asked me what I thought of the movie. "It was great,"… More »

The Videogum “Tracy Morgan Promise”: Tracy Morgan’s Christian Bale Rant

The thing about a Videogum Promise is that it trumps everything. It is that powerful. Our e-word is our iBond. So, yeah, Christian Bale rant-spoof videos are lame and already feel more tired than this baby fox, and yes, I claimed this morning that we were done writing about the whole thing because… More »

Christian Bale Apologizes To The Devil In The Pale Morning Zoo

Christian Bale has apologized for his on-set melt down by calling into the "Kevin and Bean Show" on KROQ. There's no better way to say your sorry than in-between Hollywood Harry's Gossip Round-Up and and Crazy Mike's Traffic Copter. And scene. More »

One Last Post Before We Put This Christian Bale Thing Behind Us

We're just about finished here. The Christian Bale story has been squeezed dry. It's time to stop making mashups and start taking care of your children. Battle lines have been drawn between those who feel that Bale's rant was an egotistical melt down revealing him to be a narcissistic nightmare, and apologists, but none… More »

You Can Make It Up: Christian Bale Performs Magic At A Child’s Birthday Party

Christian Bale picked a wet towel up off the bathroom floor and hung it on the hook. He muttered something under his breath. Toby was always leaving his wet towels on the bathroom floor. Dirty dishes in the sink. The other day, Christian had found a pair of Toby's used socks tucked between the sofa… More »

Stephen Colbert And Steve Martin Re-Enact Christian Bale’s Freakout

Wait! Don't look away just because the title suggests some sort of remix, mashup, or re-enactment of Christian Bale's freakout. I know we're all about to die of Christian Bale Mashup Fatigue. Last night I muttered to myself that if I saw another one I would quit the internet, but then Stephen Colbert and Steve… More »

“Shane Was A Pretty Unrepentant Light Tweaker.”

This is everywhere today, but Ain't It Cool News's Harry Knowles wrote a long defense of Christian Bale that is worth diving into for bits of hilarity such as this masterful sentence: "I know this because I happen to be somewhere where someone that was there that day and for the shoot is."… More »

Christian Bale’s Letter Of Apology

To Shane Hurlbut, and to my fans, I'm so fucking sorry that I lost control on the fucking set of Terminator Salvation. It was so fucking inappropriate. I could try and make some kind of excuse, about the stress of carrying the success of a major franchise on your shoulders, or the mental intensity of… More »

Eddie Murphy Is Not Going To Be The Riddler In Batman 3

The UK's The Sun is reporting that Eddie Murphy will be playing the Riddler in the next Batman movie. Sure, UK's The Sun. Pink Is the New Blog points out that this startling casting decision isn't being reported anywhere else, but he felt it was worth reposting just in case it turned out… More »

Terminator: Salvation To Feature The Stupid Batman Voice

Japanese Terminator: Salvation trailer, you guys: Time travel is insane. Like, once the first Terminator was sent back in time to kill Sarah Connor, if he were to succeed, then he would by the very nature of his mission have changed the course of history enough that he would never have been invented and he… More »

Terminator Salvation Has A Small Penis

I'm looking forward to Terminator: Salvation. For one, I like Apocalyptic nightmares. For two, they cast Christian Bale as John Connor, thereby embracing the first rule of the modern action movie which is "cast Christian Bale in it." But that doesn't mean I don't have my reservations. Namely, it's being directed by McG. Did you… More »

Christian Bale Dances With The Green Frog In The Pale Moon Light

The internet has finally produced the most comprehensive side-by-side comparison of Christian Bale and Kermit The Frog, proving once and for all that while there is such a thing as having too much time on one's hands there's also such a thing as so what! More »

Can You Believe These Fucking Guys Were Batman?

Now that it's been more than a month since the release of The Dark Knight and we can step back and finally have some perspective on the phenomenon of the second highest grossing movie of all time, one thing has become really clear: it's amazing that the people who played Batman before did that.
