Midday Madness: R.I.P.D. Trailer - OK, this looks like it's a "Men in Black" ripoff, but hey, it has Jeff Bridges, and I'll watch him in anything, so...
"Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headline the 3D supernatural action-adventure R.I.P.D. as two cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side."
Director: Robert Schwentke Release: 7/19/2013 Studio: Universal Pictures Starring: Jeff Bridges, Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Bacon, Mary-Louise Parker, Stephanie Szostak, Robert Knepper, James Hong, Marisa Miller, Mike O'Malley, Devin Ratray Website: http://www.RIPD.com
Jonathan WintersIn honor of the great comedian Jonathan Winters, who sadly died today at the age of 87, we offer these glimpses at the mad comedic genius that inspired so many comedians in their formative years.
Jonathan Winters was one of my favorite comedians when i was a child, and my sense of humor was greatly affected by the time I spent watching and enjoying his routines. Mr. Winters was a master of improv, as the scene below with Dean Martin will prove.
Mr Winters will be missed greatly. Rest in Peace Jonathan, and thank you for the laughter.

Our Favorite Movie Posters #94: The Babysitter (1969): An Assistant District Attorney is about to prosecute members of a motorcycle gang for murder when he gets blackmailed because of an affair with a teenage babysitter.
The male lead of the movie, George E. Carey also wrote, and I believe financed this movie, and the amazingly similar masterpiece "Weeked With the Babysitter." I guess if it works once, do it again. And by that, I mean pay to be able to roll around in the sheets with a girl a third of your age.
Late in the Day Midday Madness: Red Band Trailer for 'This is the End' (NSFW)
The comedy follows six friends trapped in a house after a series of strange and catastrophic events devastate Los Angeles. As the world unravels outside, dwindling supplies and cabin fever threaten to tear apart the friendships inside. Eventually, they are forced to leave the house, facing their fate and the true meaning of friendship and redemption.
Starring: James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Michael Cera, Emma Watson
"Red band" means the trailer has curse words, maybe some gory stuff, and sometimes, but sadly not in this case, nudity in it. (Although considering the cast of this one, we're lucky there isn't any nudity. Well, except in Emma Watson's case, we'd like to see her nude, but we'll settle for topless, side-boob is acceptable too...)
This looks like it's going to be a funny one, unless of course they just showed us all the good parts of the movie, which in that case, screw them all with a rusty drill bit.
