Coffee Talk #427: Beats by Dre is the New Bose — Overrated

Posted on December 5th, by raymond padilla in Coffee Talk, Movies, Music, Today's Specials, TV. 23 comments
I almost always see someone wearing Bose QuietComfort headphones when I fly. I almost always laugh at those people. Bose QuietComfort headphones are overpriced and overrated. You can get headphones -- in-ear or cans -- that cost the same or less...

The Lord of the Rings Nerd Logic Problem

Aragorn Lord of the Rings The Lord of the Rings Nerd Logic Problem

I posted this important (and silly) question about The Lord of the Rings on my Facebook page and thought you guys might have fun with it too. “Say Aragorn was a lvl. 12 ranger at the start of The Fellowship of the Ring. What level and class was he at the end of The Return of the King?” I got some really cool and really nerdy answers from a few of my Facebook friends and I’m sure you guys can top it, so have at it (please)!

Check Out Bane From The Dark Knight Rises

Posted on November 23rd, by raymond padilla in Comics, Movies. 12 comments

Empire magazine has some great shots of the Bane costume from the upcoming Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises. With the negative reactions Catwoman’s costume received, I was hoping for something better with Bane. Unfortunately, I can’t get behind the Bane costume. To me, they’re trying too hard to make him look like Hannibal Lecter. In my head, Bane’s mask resembled that of a luchador and the “Venom” drug was pumped into the back of his head. Here it looks like Venom is feeding into his mouth. Also, what’s … continued

Coffee Talk #423: The Muppets Movie and You

Posted on November 18th, by raymond padilla in Coffee Talk, Movies, Today's Specials. 2 comments
Last night I went to a screening of The Muppets and left the theater completely charmed. It's a fun and cute movie that mixes the classic feel of the Muppets previous musical adventures with several modern twists. As expected, Jason Segel's...

Dakota Fanning Ad For Marc Jacobs “Oh, Lola!” Banned in UK

Posted on November 9th, by raymond padilla in Movies. 11 comments

I’m not sure what’s more surprising — the British government banning Dakota Fanning’s advertisement for Marc Jacobs’ Oh, Lola! perfume or that Dakota Fanning is getting kind of hot. On one hand, England is the country that gave us “Page 3 Girls”. I figured those cats would be okay with an ad featuring an attractive 17-year old star. (Plus, those guys produced Emma Watson.) On the other hand, I never would have guessed the adorable girl from I Am Sam would transform into a sexy young woman.

The Brett Ratner / Olivia Munn Controversy

Olivia Munn The Brett Ratner / Olivia Munn Controversy

I’m so pissed at Brett Ratner. He had to idiotically use the word “faggot” in an interview, which caused a whirlwind of controversy that led to him bowing out of producing The Oscars. Now all the attention has been taken away from his sordid tales of Olivia Munn. That sucks! Just in case you haven’t heard, here’s what Ratner said about the woman a lot of you know as Bolivia Bunn:

I used to date Olivia Munn, I’ll be honest with everyone here, but when she was Lisa. She wasn’t

Considering that I recently attended the premiere of A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas and it's Coffee Talk #420, I thought that it would be a good time to discuss your favorite stoner movies. Since the the groundbreaking Cheech & Chong's Up in Smoke...

Casper Van Dien Talks Noobz

Posted on November 7th, by raymond padilla in Interviews, Movies, Today's Specials, Videogames, Videos. 7 comments

Justin Leeper and I were lucky enough to get to chat with the legendary Casper Van Dien on the set of the upcoming videogame movie Noobz. The Starship Troopers star talks about his roles (multiple) in the movie, whether he can take on Dom from Gears of War, New Jersey vs. wherever the hell Justin is from, and more. It’s a fun and loose interview with a great man. Check it out and let me know what you think (please!).

Jason Mewes & Blake Freeman Talk Noobz (Videogame Movie)

Posted on November 4th, by raymond padilla in Interviews, Movies, Today's Specials, Videogames, Videos. 8 comments

Actor Jason Mewes (Clerks II) and director Blake Freeman talk about their upcoming videogame movie Noobz in this excellent video. In addition to the movie, the two talk about Gears of War 3, discuss first-person vs. third-person action, send a special message to Epic Games’ Cliff Bleszinski, and go off-topic in a hilariously lewd way. The legendary Casper Van Dien also pops up in the video making it extra awesome. Warning: this interview contains lots of naughty language and dirty references.

Special thanks to Justin Leeper for … continued

Today’s Poll: Casper Van Dien vs. Michael Dudikoff

Posted on November 4th, by raymond padilla in Movies. 25 comments

Super important poll today: it’s Casper Van Dien vs. Michael Dudikoff in a battle of bad-asses!!! On one hand, Dudikoff is an American Ninja. He’s American. He’s a ninja. He beats the hell out of non-American ninjas. On other hand, Van Dien is Johnny Frickin’ Rico! He slaughters giant alien bugs the same way you or I would swat gnats. Plus, he’s also been Tarzan and James Dean. More pluses include the fact that he’s co-producing the videogame movie Noobz and he follow me on Twitter.

This isn’t really … continued
