13 Movies I'll Never Watch Unless You Kill Me And Prop My Lifeless Corpse In Front Of A TV

And even then I wouldn't really be watching.


Is this a movie or the cover of the NAMBLA recruitment guide?
I suspect a lot of weepy father-son bonding. Pass.


I don't like movies about "special" people.


Suspense is one thing, but gore is just lame.


M. Night Shyamalamadingdong hasn't made a good movie since
The Sixth Sense, and here he presents a story of an apartment super who finds a fairy living in the pool. As intriguing as that sounds, I'm gonna say no.


I don't like movies about "special" people. Even ones with Ashley Judd.


I don't like movies with crazy people.


Meet my scrotum.


Robin Williams. Clown nose. That's all I need to know.


Notting on your life.


I have a notebook, too. Mine says this movie blows.


Isn't this the movie that gave us "Wind Beneath My Wings"? Did you ever know that I hate Midler? / She's someone that I would like to beat.


After Femme Fatale, I vowed that Brian DePalma would never get another dollar from me as long as I live. I intend to honor that vow.


The only thing more boring than watching golf? Watching movies about golf. Hey, maybe someone will make a movie about watching golf. That would be great.

How about you? What's a movie(s) you'll never watch?

CD Of The Day

From VeryShortList.com



In movies like Elf and on television shows like "Weeds," actress Zooey Deschanel has perfected the art of playing quirky and endearing women. On albums like Post-War and Transfiguration of Vincent, singer-songwriter M. Ward has cornered the market on quirky and endearing rock. So put the two together in a duo called She & Him, and what do you get? One of the flat-out best pop records of the year.

It’s no revelation that Ward knows how to craft a catchy tune; the real surprise here is Deschanel, who turns out to possess one husky, hypnotic singing voice. Aside from dreamy covers of the Beatles (“I Should Have Known Better”) and Smokey Robinson (“You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me”), the record is a tour de force tribute to female pop: From Wall of Sound–era Ronnie Spector rock and roll to Tammy Wynette–style country, there doesn’t seem to be a style that Deschanel can’t channel perfectly.

A supporting player for too long, she’s finally given the spotlight, and she owns every inch of it.

Retro Tab Commercials Of The Day

The first one is creepy. At the end when the dude looks at his watch, he's thinking, "Hmm.. do I have time to run back to the hotel room and rub one out real fast?" Mindspanker is more like it.

Speaking of... this one came from TheMovieGuru.




This one's a classic. Isn't that cheerleader Lori Loughlin from "Full House"?

Jumping The Shark

JumpTheShark.com lets readers vote on when they think TV shows "jumped the shark." What does that mean? They explain:
It's a moment. A defining moment when you know that your favorite television program has reached its peak. That instant that you know from now on...it's all downhill. Some call it the climax. We call it "Jumping the Shark." From that moment on, the program will simply never be the same.

The expression refers to the telltale sign of the demise of Happy Days, when Fonzie actually "jumped the shark" on his motorcycle.

The rest is history.



Here are shark-jumping moments for some shows as voted by the site's readers. In cases where people don't think a show ever jumped -- and there are many -- I also list the top reason chosen by those who do think the show jumped. You can find out about other shows on JumpTheShark.com.
