Knight & Day: Not on Your Life

Tom Cruise lover that I am (my eyes are rolling so far back in my head right now I can actually see why my neck has been hurting me this week, as well as the fact the picture behind me is a bit crooked), imagine my delight at seeing the trailer for his upcoming piece of crap Knight & Day on You Tube.  Go here to watch it.   I warn you though - - Cameron squeals, Tom runs, Cameron screams, Tom breaks something.  Probably the story of his shamarriage to the Robot Bride.

Is anyone going to see this?  Really?  Besides the fact that the storyline that I could actually pick up seems like day old rehashings and Cameron Diaz is one of the most annoying actresses on the planet, is anyone willing to fork hard earned money over to fund Tom's craziness and his cult?  (Because make no mistake, a good 40% or so of any money Tommy makes goes right into the offering plates at the good old Church of Scientology). 

And check out the poster - - seriously?  Give me 20 minutes and PowerPoint and I could do better than this.  Silhouettes?  Ho-hum.  Ketchup and mustard explosions in the background?  Yawn.  I suppose that's a gun the Cameron silhouette is holding but we all know what it looks like (especially you, Tom Cruise, wink, wink).  And is the Tom silhouette running or is he some kind of stump legged pirate?  Questions, questions. 

I can assure you though that I will not see this turkey unless it's on cable and I'm feeling particularly snarky.

Are You Watching Detroit 1-8-7?

If you're not watching Detroit 1-8-7, you should be.  This is one of those shows that has a lot of promise, that works really well now and will only get better over time . . . but gets almost no marketing and no push from its network.  Those bastards. 

I have dealt with this in the past with NBC (Nothing But Cancellations) - - remember JourneymanThe Black DonnellysMy Own Worst Enemy?  All shows that had interesting concepts and could have really been developed but were cancelled in their first seasons.  Shame, NBC.

I hope ABC doesn't follow suit with Detroit 1-8-7.  If you like dramas that involve police investigations, Detroit 1-8-7 will fit the bill.  Michael Imperioli, late of The Sopranos and Life on Mars, helms this show as Detective Louis Fitch and while I haven't always been a huge fan of his, he nails this role.  Without him, this would be just other generic drama but he brings so much depth and interest to this role, it elevates the show out of cookie cutte…

Meet Melissa, the Queen Bridezilla

So I was channel surfing last night and ended up having a good two (okay, maybe three) hours of my life drained by WE's bridal bitchfest Bridezillas.  I realize the point of the show is to showcase what out of control hags some women are when planning their weddings but Miss Melissa really takes the cake. 

First, she claims to be 23 and I always find it interesting that most of these chicks look older than they claim to be.  I'd like to see a birth certificate before I agree to that.  She also claims to be in medical school, which is really funny considering (1) Melissa seems to have an awful lot of free time on her hands, to bitch, whine, complain and threaten to kill people and (2) for someone who claims to want a career saving lives, she sure talks about taking a lot of them.  (Case in point:  Melissa, concerned that she won't be happy with her wedding cake, tells the camera that if the baker screws it up, she will kill her and eat her). 

So . . . Melissa and her oh-s…

Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe: No Pardons!

August 19, 2011 was a joyous day for many reasons.  It was Friday.  School starts this week.  And Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Miskelley, also known as The West Memphis Three, were at long last released from prison.  After nearly eighteen years. 

We supporters have been saying for years that The Three at the very least didn't get fair trials and at most are flat out innocent of the murders they have been accused of.  Freedom from incarceration has been the main goal for years and I am thrilled that the day finally came last Friday.  It is discouraging, however, that Damien, Jason and Jessie had to take an Alford plea in order to secure their releases.  In other words, they had to admit that the State of Arkansas had enough evidence to convict them in a retrial while still maintaining their innocence.  The State of Arkansas, totally speaking out of their ass, claims that they indeed have enough evidence to re-convict in a retrial but released the men, despite their alle…
