There's a lot to like about the Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim if the trailer is any indication. It's like watching multi-billion dollar Rock 'Em Sock 'Em robots versus Godzilla on steroids. Throw in the uber-talented Idris Elba and mankind in peril and you've got an eagerly anticipated action movie coming out next July.
That not enough sci-fi/fantasy for you? Check out Tom Cruise in the first Oblivion trailer:
The Golden Globe Nominations: Lincoln leads with seven nominations, as it should in my mind. I like that Django Unchained scored two supporting actor nods for Leo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz. But the Hollywood Foreign Press Assoc. didn't give a single nomination to Beasts of the Southern Wild. In my book, that's a HUGE snub. Dwight Henry gave one of the most powerful performances of the year in that film. And no nominations for Mad Men, Sherlock or Game of Thrones??? I hope you can sense my incredulity in that question marks. OK, off my soap box. I am glad that Argo and Downton Abbey scored nominations too. See the full list at The Hollywood Reporter.
Cute Animal Video: Elvis the bulldog puppy is giving his mommy a lecture. It's "adorbs!"
It's Fake! That's what the star of the A&E channel's "Storage Wars" is saying about the show. Dave Hester has filed suit against A&E claiming the hit show is a big old fake. According to the LA Times, Hester's complaint alleged that producers planted "exotic and expsensive items to pump up the drama on the show." No comment yet from A&E.
