Lest you think we were just pulling your leg when we mentioned that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were back together, we’d like to offer up proof in the form of some serious making out in Miley’s car. At first we thought there’s no way they’re back on, and the fact that Miley was photographed grabbing a coffee with Hemsworth yesterday just shows that clearly they are just being mature adults, hanging out, maybe returning some shirts, an old stereo, whatever normal, broken-up people do to settle up. But oh, no. Unless Liam borrowed one of Miley’s fillings, that’s definitely not what this was.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has been responsible for a string of hit blockbusters from Flashdance to the Pirates of the Caribbean. So why did audiences stay away from Prince of Persia? Maybe America just isn’t ready for a hero in a turban. Jake Gyllenhaal, boasting WWE-worthy muscles, is the orphan adopted by Persian royalty. He goes on the run after being accused of murdering his adoptive father with a poisoned cloak. In tow is a beautiful princess (Gemma Arterton) with futon-like lips who hopes to unsheathe the twinkling hunk’s mystic time-warping dagger. In arid pursuit is manipulative fiend Ben Kingsley and an army of what the film calls “Hassansins.” Lost already? Following the story is as fruitless as a desert, but any plot complications are shunted aside in favor of a bazaar-load of Middle East exotica and swashbuckling thrills that detonate with greater regularity than IEDs in a Baghdad market square. The sharpest line, though, may go to Alfred Molina‘s bumptious oasis swindler, who observes, “You can’t run an ostrich race with only one ostrich.”
Long-necked land birds also feature along with a menagerie of other weirdness in this week’s other notable release, My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done?. Crazy aspiring actor Michael Shannon holds a pair of flamingos (“eagles in drag”) hostage. Coffee-swilling cop Willem Dafoe investigates how the lunatic is related to the dead body in a neighbor’s house. Produced by David Lynch and directed by Grizzly Man‘s Werner Herzog, Son is a neat exercise in absurd tragicomedy, with fine supporting performances from Big Love‘s Chloe Sevigny and cult actor Udo Kier.
Extras: Persia‘s Blu-Ray package includes an interactive feature that allows you to play with Jake’s dagger and access making of content. My Son features an essential commentary track from the always nutty Herzog and a short film.

We were torn about which headline to choose for this story about George Michael‘s latest jail sentence.Ã‚Â George Michael Loses His Freedom (’90)?Ã‚Â “You Were Careless,” Whispered The Judge? Or maybeÃ‚Â Wake Me Up Before He Go-Goes To Jail?Ã‚Â Why, they’re all amazing! Ã‚Â But no punny title will change the fact that George Michael still has the worst driving record of any celebrity we can think of and his latest sentence Ã‚Â - 8 weeks in jail and a five-year license suspension – for recklessly driving into a storefront in July while high on pot and prescription drugs, is appropriate.
Michael is no stranger to any of this: he has been arrested, jailed and had his license suspended in the past numerous times for driving while on drugs. After a 2006 accident, he admitted to being “a terrible driver”. Judge John Perkins expressed regret for having to jail Michael, but explained “It does not appear that you took proper steps to deal with what is clearly an addiction to cannabis. That’s a mistake which puts you and, on this occasion, the public at risk.”
Ironically, Michael was driven to court today by a chauffeur, which would have been a huge help to him in July.
Here’s the poster for Little Bit Of Heaven, an upcoming airplane movie starring Kate Hudson and
Chris Kattan Gael García Bernal?? The guy from Y Tu Mama Tambien? Uh oh.
Commence pre-wincing, then scroll your eyes down slightly and commence regular wincing:
Ahhhh!!! Kill it! Kiiiiiilllll iiiiiiiitttt!!!
Ok, ok, calm down, it’s just a movie poster, not a Predictable Monster hell-bent on devouring me and my family in a completely empty and formulaic fashion to briefly extend Kate Hudson’s tabloid relevance. Whew.
With that settled, let’s take a moment and fix the Little Bit Of Heaven poster…
Easy A is our favorite kind of comedy – a slightly dark high school flick full of young, emerging stars, but chock full of cameos by some veteran actors we love. For a film that takes place in school, one thing is for sure – no one needs style lessons on this red carpet.
The star of the film, Emma Stone, spent most of the last night’s premiere stuck to pal Taylor Swift’s hip and they both looked sparkly and glam in their thigh-high dresses. Putting them both to shame though was Patricia Clarkson, who can class up any joint. Side note – the movie’s cast is kind of insane, right? Clarkson, Lisa Kudrow, Malcom McDowell, and Stanley Tucci? And it’s not even an indie movie with grown-up, depressing themes! Unfortunately the men were absent last night but the ladies all looked amazing. High grades all around for this cast.
Easy A trailer after the jump! Read more…
Well, expect this to be on every website in about three hours. It is Irish hand dancing. And it is basically just Riverdance, but instead of only moving their feet and keeping their upper body still, THESE Irish dancers sit down and only move their arms. Do Irish people know you are allowed to move both halves of your body at the same time? It’s a whole nation of dolphin brains over there! (Fun reference fact: dolphins can sleep with half of their brain at a time if they want to. If you listened to Radiolab, you’d know this.)
Also, I like their decorating choices. They come from the design school of If-Your-Italian-Grandmother-Was-A-Hipster.
You can learn more about this dance duo here if you want. But, come on. Do you really want?
This weekend we got a lot of slack on Twitter for not loving Ashley Greene‘s VMA outfit. We even were told to “sit down,” which is easy for us to do because we sit on our asses all day blogging and eating Wheat Thins. But yeah, point taken. Thus we thought this would be a good time to clarify our deep, invested feelings about Ashley’s fashion picks. Ready?
We LOVE her casual look. She does the beautiful regular girl thing so well, with her collection of skinny jeans and ballet flats and flowy tops. She looks effortless, and it’s impossible to tell if she’s wearing make up or not because her face is all sorts of flawless. But sometimes her red carpet looks fall a bit flat to us, like at last year’s VMAS, for example. Other times, we gush over them; her Eclipse premiere dress still makes us melt with envy. Does this mean we “hate” Ashley Greene? No. We don’t know her. We’re bloggers. We hope Joe Jonas is kissing the sh*t out of those pretty lips and makin’ her happy. All hail Queen Greene.
But we did want to take this time to gush about a recent Ash outfit that we LOVE. Girlfriend is back in NYC for Fashion Week, and popped up at Donna Karan in this sea-green number. We love the loose look – she can totally pull it off because you know there’s a tiny bod of steel (see Ashley in a bikini!) underneath. The side ponytail, clean make up and understated (but just enough) jewels compliment the look enough without over-saturating it, leaving room for THOSE SHOES. Oh, do we just love a statement shoe.
This is the high glam Ashley we love! A bit risky, a lot of color, yet still simple and classy. Now the real question is – do you also dig this outfit or are we gonna disagree on Ash Fashion forever? Flame us in the comments!
For a few weeks now, NFL Sunday Ticket has been advertising with a series of commercials featuring a visiting fan watching his home team’s NFL games in a visiting city and getting a hard time from the locals. It’s a solid campaign — Simple, fun, humorous, and non-torture related.
Except for this one, in which a Falcons fan invites the wrath of his New Orleans neighbor, and the result is slightly more disturbing than one would expect from an ad that’s trying to sell you the product that is resulting in this man’s excruciating torture. What would the Mad Mans say about this ad??
Flashbacks of the voodoo-torture part in Child’s Play, anyone?
Okay, maybe it wasn’t a super secret, seeing as Isla Fisher was visibly pregnant earlier this year, but she and husband Sacha Baron Cohen welcomed their second child with zero fanfare, to the extent that we only know the baby exists because Fisher is no longer showing a pregnant belly. They haven’t even revealed the child’s name or sex or when s/he was even born. These two are a lesson in how to lead private lives (maybe it helps that Cohen’s job requires disguises?) which is impressive since they still live in L.A. The pair also has an older daughter, Olive.
Certainly quite a change from, say, Mario Lopez, whose childbirth experience was the definition of Too Much (Gory, Awful) Information. Congrats to the family on their new addition and their amazing secret-keeping skills.

Remember when sort of a long time ago Eastbound and Down staring Danny McBride premiered on HBO and we were all like, “What a high quality show that I like! Let’s get a season two going immediately!” And then… that just kept not happening for a really long time. Babies have been conceived and born since then. Best friends have gotten engaged and tickets to Hawaii for very unreasonable wedding locales have been purchased. New contacts have been ordered. Deodorant brand loyalties have been switched. Roommates have caught you drunk, eating cold Progresso clam chowder out of the can. This has all happened to all of us, right? This isn’t too personal.
Anyway, Eastbound and Down is back and here is a trailer for it. Enjoy yourselves. And, for the love of Pete, just microwave your chowder for like three minutes. Honestly, you’re disgusting.
