2010 MTV Movie Awards Winners

2010 MTV Movie Awards

Lets face it, the MTV Movie Awards is not a real award show. It’s more a piece of badly choreographed television “entertainment” than anything else. I mean, at what other Award show does Twilight: New Moon take home five awards, and the movie Obsessed win… well, anything — EVER?

For those of you who are interested, you can find a list of winners of the 2010 MTV Movie Awards after the jump. Leave your snarky sarcastic-filled responses below.

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s.

Season 2 of Breaking Bad opens with a disturbing but seemingly innocuous shot of a charred stuffed bear floating in a pool, and its relevance is not made clear until the season finale. When provided full context, the remains of that bear is a brutal, in-your-face emblem of the destructive consequences of Walt’s moral decay. Consider the characters we met in Season 1: Walt a mild-mannered chemistry teacher, and Jesse an obnoxious, irresponsible punk. Season 2 finds these characters reaching emotionally devastating new highs and lows, and experiencing those moments with them is as compelling as it is stressful. Between this season and its last, Breaking Bad has solidified itself as one of the greatest shows ever made. If you aren’t watching it, you are missing the best that serialized drama has to offer.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: DVD & Blu-ray – Cast & crew commentaries, deleted scenes, Inside Breaking Bad – 13 Featurettes About The Making of Each Episode, Walt’s Warning Featurette, “Negro y Azul” Music Video, “Better Call Saul” Commercial, 11 Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes, Cop Talk with Dean Norris, a gag reel, 6 Breaking Bad Original Webisodes, Season 3 Sneak Peek, and Vince Gilligan’s Photo Gallery.

LOL: Ask A Ninja Reviews Ninja Assassin

ask a ninja assassin

Ask a Ninja doesn’t review movies, or at least not normally. But when a film like Ninja Assassin comes along, the Ninja becomes a movie critic. What did the Ninja think of James McTeigue‘s Ninja Assassin? Watch the video now embedded after the jump.

I’m not going to over-simplify and proclaim that making a good ninja movie is the easiest thing in the world. But I never would have guessed that doing so is as difficult as James McTeigue‘s Ninja Assassin makes it appear. This is a big-budget movie with a top-flight crew and a star blessed with undeniable magnetism, not to mention the R-rated freedom to provide the copious blood and gore that so many genre fans crave. Yet it plays no better than a cheap direct to DVD feature. Ninja Assassin is a forgettable throwaway, a waste of creative talent and the audience’s time. Read More »

Ninja Assassin Red Band Movie Trailer

Ninja Assassin

Advance word on James McTeigue’s Ninja Assassin hasn’t been too hot, but perhaps this newly released red band trailer can change your mind. Not surprisingly, it’s blood drenched and features more gore than in previous trailers—and we also see far more extensive use of CG this time around. We’ve previously reported on footage of Rain training for the film, but with this trailer it’s hard to see any of that put to use.

A few new clips slipped by us right as last week ended at the holiday weekend began. Well, two of them slipped by, and I hedged on posting the clip from Survival of the Dead at first because it’s fairly lousy, and that makes me sad. See all three (or whichever ones you choose) after the break. Read More »

New Photos in MTV’s 2009 Fall Movie Preview


MTV has published their Fall 2009 movie preview, which includes 24 new photos from movies due out in the next four months. Its one of those really annoying page-at-a-time slideshows, so I thought I’d feature a few of the photos. . Above is another look at Peter Jackson‘s version of “Heaven” in The Lovely Bones, featuring Saoirse Ronan.

After the jump, photos include: George Clooney and Anna Kendrick in Jason Reitman‘s Up in the Air, John Woo‘s Red Cliff, James McTeigue‘s Ninja Assassin, and Scott Bakula, Joel McHale and Matt Damon in Steven Soderbergh‘s The Informant. You can head on over to MTV to see many many more

VOTD: LEGO Ninja Assassin Trailer


I’ve heard people say that almost everything is better with LEGOs. The Star Wars prequels? yes. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? possibly. LEGO Rock Band? ….? How about LEGO Ninja Assassin?

During Comic-Con, Warner Bros released the first trailer for James McTeigue‘s Ninja Assassin. If you haven’t seen it yet, click here. Over the weekend I received a link to the same trailer recreated in stop motion animation by Keshen using legos. The short animated reenactment is actually very well put together. Check it out now after the jump.
