I Would DEFINITELY Watch This!

This fan-made trailer is one of the best I have ever seen. Clearly a lot of work has gone into this, and although doubtful this will ever come to fruition, I would totally watch this work of genius!

Plus it comes with one of the best taglines I have ever heard: “Phoning home won’t be so easy… because this time, it’s off the hook!”

Androids Rise To Fame

Neat animation to illustrate mobile company Android’s rise to fame over the past few years broken down by continent. Apple may no longer be the monopoly it thought it was with so much competition on the market. I don’t know how this graphic compares to Apple sales but the visuals are pretty striking for Android. Plus it’s pretty to look at ūüôā

Long, stabby thing

Hilarious news anchor footage from Australia. This is a discussion about how to defend yourself from intruders in the night that goes awry and filled with innuendo.

Stefon

Saturday Night Live might get a hard rap these days with some people saying it’s on its last legs. But, it still has some terrific skits and characters, one being the brilliant Stefon, Weekend Update’s New York City Correspondent. Stefon¬†is into his underground club scene and has a hard time connecting with average joe society. Some of his suggestions for places to go are genius and I wouldn’t be surprised if there really are places like this. The best part though is watching Bill Hader struggle to stay in character and prevent the giggles.

BAFTAs

Baftas 2011

So it was pretty much King’s Speech, King’s Speech, King’s Speech, King’s Speech, King’s Speech, all night long. Inception won a couple and Black Swan’s Natalie Portman¬†won Best Actress, but she couldn’t be here in the UK because she was preggers. Most of the winners seemed to be off elsewhere doing more important things like filming, acting on Broadway, rather than being available to pick up their awards in Britain, which left a sour taste in my mouth that they couldn’t be arsed¬†to attend the BAFTAs. I bet you a leprechaun’s shamrock they will all turn out in force for the Oscars though. Baftas¬†aren’t quite the same. It goes: Oscars, Golden Globes, then Baftas (at best between Cannes etc).

Jonathan Ross actually did a fair job tonight despite being an eejit¬†recently, and Helena Bonham Carter was sublime. Andrew Garfield kept providing weird insane facial tics when the camera got to him when Social Network didn’t win something. Miranda Richardson looked positively livid when she was passed over in the Best Supporting Actress role. What happened to the gracious face? I saw veins in her temples and all the works. All in all, my favourite moment of the Baftas is split in two.

Number two… Rosamund Pike stumbling through an autocue¬†failure about non-actors. Something about screenwriters being amazing and bringing them to life, blah blah blah. Without being told what to say about the underlings, she was struggling a lot. Turning to Dominic Cooper for help, he was a shit and left her fumbling alone by asking for permission to “walk off stage”. Heroic!

Overall best bit though goes to Christopher Lee. What a phenomenon! He’s 88 and still planning to be in The Hobbit (in Production). I couldn’t believe the change in his appearance though since he was in LOTRs. With the aid of a walking stick he accepted a Lifetime Achievement Award for British Film, but he had clearly aged in the last few years and looked very frail. Still, he delivered a great acceptance and I wish him well for his continuing work. Good on him and I hope he continues to bless us with more achievements.

PS> Inception should’ve¬†won more! I was bored with The Kings Speech by the end of the awards and I hadn’t even watched it. Congratulations Colin Firth (blah blah blah)

Firewhoops!!

Wheeeeeeeeee! Damp squib……………….oh no wait!

ARGH!!! Most explosive firework ever!!

Web Therapy

I can’t praise this internet tv show enough. I stumbled upon it a few years ago when looking at Lisa Kudrow’s¬†IMDb page and have followed it ever since. Lisa Kudrow¬†is a comedic genius in my opinion and these webisodes are a great show of her talent and far removed from Phoebe Buffay’s¬†quirky silliness. Sponsored by LStudio, Web Therapy has so far had three seasons and has a strong list of guest appearances by the likes of fellow Friends star Courtney Cox as well as Alan Cumming, Meryl Streep, Molly Shannon,¬†Jane Lynch and many others who you might not recognise by name but you’ll know them by face.

Fiona Wallice is a therapist who tries and convicts her patients via a short 10 minute web therapy session over a webcam. Her methods are at best selfish, contrived and always have some underhanded agenda with or without her patients knowledge. She is a cool, dark and calculated character and Lisa Kudrow deserves more acknowledgement for this brilliant web series. I dearly hope this returns for a further fourth season. Each webisode is a mere ten minutes or so and the banter is so quick-witted and sharp. Wallice has a razor-sharp and icy tongue and watching the bitchiness unfold is sheer brilliance.

Link here to LStudio. All three seasons are free to watch with no hidden kinks. Enjoy!
