The anti-Trekkies!

Documentary Trek Nation, Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry and Scott Colthorp’s philosophical peek into the sci-fi franchise’s enduring cultural appeal, has yet to touch down in theaters. But from its desire to be the anti-Trekkies to its all-star interviewees like George Lucas, J.J. Abrams and Patrick Stewart, the movie is approaching warp factor geek.

And so passes Megan Fox...

First Skids and Mudflap, and now this! Presumably owing to her comparing him to Hitler and accusing the director of trying to kill her on the set of last year's Transformers 2, Michael Bay has opted not to bring back Megan Fox for Transformers 3. Nikki Finke reports that Bay and writers are currently finishing T3's script (shooting begins next month, by the way) and have suddenly decided that "giving Shia [LaBeouf] a new love interest makes more sense for the story" — and what is a Transformers movie without a sense-making story, after all? Bay had previously slapped back at Fox in two letters — one anonymous and one which he signed his name in the wrong place — but we guess he was still mad. Watch your mouth, Shia.

Oh...follow the link above to get all the yummy links in that little blurb.

But here's the anonymous letter that appeared on Bay's website (so...not anonymous at all?).

It's hilarious.

When facing the press, Megan is the queen of talking trailer trash and posing like a porn star. And yes we've had the unbearable time of watching her try to act on set, and yes, it's very cringe-able. So maybe, being a porn star in the future might be a good career option. But make-up beware, she has a paragraph tattooed to her backside (probably due her rotten childhood) — easily another 45 minutes in the chair!

She's a terrible actor. Hotter than humanly possible, but a terrible actor.

He's right about the tats, though.  She's hot...after a few hours in the make-up chair.

I had no idea this was an issue... It's been on my secret sites for a month!

Anybody want it?

Will we ever get to see Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor play jailed, star-crossed lovers on the big screen? Seemingly not! Following a trio of canceled release dates, I Love You Phillip Morris has been slapped with a preliminary injunction blocking the film's release. The problem stems from a lawsuit, filed by French-based EuropaCorp, which produced the movie, against Consolidated Pictures Group, which struck a $3 million deal for Phillip Morris's American distribution rights last year, but then allegedly never paid. In her decision, California District Court Judge Dale Fischer says EuropaCorp will likely win its case and get the movie back. It's a civil suit, though, so neither side will be sent to prison and kissed by Ewan McGregor, sadly.

Surprisingly, Hot Tub Time Machine probably deserves its own thread.  I really enjoyed it.  It's good, dumb fun and if you were someone who came of age in the 80's, the movie has a surreal feel at times when you watch 45-year-old John Cusak remind you of all the 80's movies he was ever in... in another 80's movie... sort of.

I laughed all the way through it.  Very funny.

Wait...hold on.  Yes, this is a good movie.  Watching it now and loving it.  I'm shocked!

I'll never doubt you again, Nubbins.

I own the doc this is from. Four hours of Elm Street goodness.

I actually met Mark Patton (who played Jesse) at a con and he talked at length about this. I've always thought Elm Street 2 was very "gay."

Well, well.  So passes James Bond, according to the Vulture blog (via AICN and others). Bond 23 has been canned and Craig is released from his contract...
