Truth In Movie Titles

March 29, 2006 at 07:39 PM

Some really funny movie posters over at Something Awful with more accurate movie titles for some great and terrible movies. Collateral is now Good Movie, Sh***y Ending and King Kong is Too Long. My favorite is the one for Mulholland Drive. That movie was so obtuse just for the sake of being so. It was confusing because director David Lynch wanted it to be.... Continue reading

TV Squad has a pretty spot on comment about Fox's new comedy, The Loop: The Loop is one of those shows that can seem kinda funny if you don't watch an entire episode. If you were to just turn on FOX 5, 10, or 20 minutes into the show, you're bound to hit upon a clever line or a funny scenario. I watched the pilot on Wednesday night and found myself amused and bored at... Continue reading
