Tune-In Tuesdays: Kal Penn Leaves Obama Administration On A High

6 04 2010

Pott heads around the world lost their buzz last year after learning that there asteemed icon, Kal Penn – one half of the duo that is Harold & Kumar – had traded in his dime bag for a position as President Obama’s associate director of public engagement.

Well, it must be 4:20 because Mr. Penn is clocking out and returning to the role that made him a cult phenom.  Coming to theatres during the 2011 holiday season, the third installment in the “Harold & Kumar” franchise will reunite Penn (Kumar) with John Cho (Harold) in what EW.com is reporting could be the pairs biggest film yet…a possible 3-D spectacle that will have you trippin’.

I couldn’t be more thrilled, but I’m left with one nagging question.  Is Neil Patrick “Get some p**sy!” Harris going to make another cameo?

Director John Hughes Dead at 59

6 08 2009

While on a morning walk in NYC, director John Hughes passed away due to an apparent heart attack.

John Hughes

John Hughes

Hughes — best known for his ’80s cult classics including The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, Sixteen Candles, Pretty In Pink and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off — was the master of teen angst, a theme he played out in many of his films [starring Molly Ringwald].

Though Hughes’ notoriety may have diminished over the past two decades, his contributions to the film industry continued as he wrote/directed many of our favorite family films including Uncle Buck, Christmas Vacation, the Home Alone and Beethoven films, and 101 Dalmatians to name a few.

Hughes will be greatly missed, but his films will continue to inspire and entertain generations to come.

I’m a child of the 80s, so of course I was thrilled when they announced that Transformers was coming to the big screen in a huge Michael Bay spectacle.  But did we really need a sequel? 

Picking up where the last film left off, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen reunites Shia LaBouf, Megan Fox and Josh Duhamel as they team up again with the Autobots in an epic battle against Megatron and the Decepticons. 

The film opens nationwide today, and is sure to be one of the biggest summer blockbusters of ’09.  Bypass the long ticket lines by visiting Fandango.com where you can score tickets, photos, fan reviews and more.  And if you missed the first trailer, watch the newest cut now by clicking below.

Does work have you down?  Make it a movie night; it always makes me feel better.  Out on DVD today are The Wrestler and Frost Nixon, both nominated for multiple Academy Awards.  If you missed either in the theatres, this is your chance to see what all the hype is about.  Just one look at Mickey Rourke in this comeback role and you’ll remember why he was once considered one of the greatest actors of our generation.
