PARTY DOWN (SEASON 2)
Last time I wrote of the brilliance of this series, I begged people to watch and support it. My pleas were in vain, it would appear, as the show was canceled due to its low ratings failing to pick up over the course of its second season. Truthfully, I’m stunned it even made it past its first season, and for that alone I am grateful. Season 2 continues some time after the first left off, and a lot has changed since then. The new character dynamic takes a few episodes to find its footing, but once it does, it results in some of the funniest scenes the show has to offer. (The final moment of this scene in particular makes me bust up laughing every time I think about it.) While it’s sad to see such a biting, cynical satire vanish from the air, the series provided us with two knockout seasons, a perfect note to close the show on, and one of the few honest (read: depressing) portrayals of the costs of trying to lead an unorthodox lifestyle in modern society. It is, for my money, one of the best comedies to have ever been on television. Before I begged you to watch it; now I’m begging you to buy it.
Available on Blu-ray? No.
Notable Extras: A gag reel.

Want to watch the first five minutes of the new Russell Brand/Jonah Hill comedy Get Him To The Greek before deciding if its worth the price of an opening weekend ticket purchase? Universal has put the film’s opening sequence online. Greek made me laugh so hard it started to hurt, and is highly recommended despite its very odd/uneven third act. Watch the first five minutes now after the jump.

We have a bunch of cool new movie posters today, including Lionsgate’s first teaser poster for Buried (one of my favorite movies of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival), an international poster for Get Him To The Greek, four international character posters for The A-Team, and another cool international one-sheet for Toy Story 3. I really love the minimalism of the buried teaser poster, although I believe they should have done without the stupid website url and actually have included the title of the film. Check out all the posters now, after the jump.
Among the onliners, I seemed to be the one who wasn’t doubled over with laughter while watching the first ‘safe’ trailer for Get Him to the Greek. The film vaguely follows on the heels of Forgetting Sarah Marshall by casting Russell Brand once more as rocker Aldous Snow. But it diverges by having Jonah Hill play a character different than he did in Sarah Marshall; this time, he’s a lowly record company assistant who is given his dream job: get Aldous Snow from London to Los Angeles in 72 hours so that he can perform a concert. It’s sort of Midnight Run with more dick jokes and humiliation, some of which is now on display in the red-band trailer you can see below. Read More »

The story, written and directed by Nicolas Stoller, follows a fresh-out-of-college record company intern named Aaron Greenberg (Jonah Hill) who is assigned by his angry record company boss Sergio (Sean “P-Diddy” Combs)to transport an out-of-control rock star named Aldous Snow (Russell Brand, reprising his role from Sarah Marshall) from London to a gig at Los Angeles’ famous Greek Theater. Watch the trailer now, and leave your thoughts in the comments below

Universal Releases Official Synopses For 2010 Slate, Gives Good Look at MacGruber and Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood
Posted on Tuesday, October 13th, 2009 by Russ Fischer
What follows basically amounts to me copy/pasting an entire press release from Universal, for which I apologize. But this is one of the few times where the action is worthwhile, because the studio has sent out a set of approved synopses for the 2010 slate, and there are details here about films like MacGruber, David Gordon Green‘s Your Highness and Ridley Scott‘s still–Untitled Robin Hood Adventure that we hadn’t seen assembled all in one place.
