The way we see it, the two movies that guys can watch over and over again and never tire of are The Big Lebowski and The Matrix (the first, mind you, we still fail to recognize any sequels, the way people with terminal illness decide to not believe they're sick in hopes it will just disappear). Someone has done the ... continue reading

We all remember the bizarre behavior, the Letterman appearance, the weird impromptu rap concert. Not long ago, Joaquin Phoenix went off the deep end... and then jumped the shark. And in what is either a stroke of genius or voyeuristic cruelty, his brother-in-law, Casey Affleck, taped all of it. Now the movie of that ... continue reading
With the arrival of the 7th Season of HBO's hit show "Entourage", we thought we'd take the occasion to review a couple of the great entourages of past and present, both fictional and non.

Ian Fraser Kilmister - more commonly known as "Lemmy" - is kind of a big, fucking deal in the world of Rock N' Roll and Heavy Metal music, due in no small part to his creating Motörhead. Now you can get inside Lemmy's head and live his life (if only for a few hours) with Lemmy: The Movie.

There are so many things about Mos Def that represent Cool Material - Def Poetry, a room for his shoes, Boondocks - and none of that even begins to address his ridiculous musical chops (or the ones on his face for that matter). Yeah, there's collaborations with Gorillaz, Kanye, and The Roots, but Mos Def's solo ... continue reading

If George Lucas were as good at marketing as he is at bastardizing childhood memories, he would have hired Mark Greenawalt to do publicity for the recent Star Wars abortions. If Lucas had, Greenawalt's art would likely have exponentially increased sales figures, public acceptance of the movie (or maybe just slightly ... continue reading
Christmas is a holiday that is - supposedly - based on the spirit of giving... and spending time with family. Thankfully, beer helps with both of those problems. What happens to the empties when you get bored with spin the bottle? Throw the empties out? Recycle them? Better yet, why not use the college degree you ... continue reading
Unless you have been living under a rock or in space all year long, you probably saw The Hangover. Come to think of it, if you get the Internet under your rock or in your space station you should have seen it. In any event, the movie was the best comedy of 2009 (Transformers 2 doesn't count) and it was arguably ... continue reading
There are a lot of things we all know about beer - it's delicious, we're all geniuses after consumption, and you can never have enough of it. Knowing these things will not get you free beers, but The Oatmeal has twenty things that just might.
For instance, if the ancient Babylonians PBR'd a batch they wouldn't ... continue reading
Tommy Glide, you are my hero; Joe Francis, go back to jail. Tommy Glide had a problem - there were too many local hotties not getting enough exposure. What did he do? Made a website of course.
The Hot Quest is like Hot or Not without the mandatory rating... and the dudes. That's right, you don't have to rate ... continue reading
Last weekend while you were buried in work, planning for Black Wednesday, or studying for finals, there were people in the middle of the desert engaged in a crazy celebration that was part rave, part Burning Man, and part American Gladiators. All in the name of their love for Mad Max.
Bartertown offered merchandise ... continue reading
All blood, all the time. Unless you have been living under a rock for the past three years, you probably heard of the new Showtime hit Dexter.
