10 Dope Alternative Posters

Artwork done by Laz Marquez. Last year he did the same thing with horror movies as well. I like these a lot better than the originals, with the exception of Inception.

Oscar Inspired Cocktails by Grey Goose

Since Grey Goose is sponsoring the Pre-Oscar party at Soho House in LA, what better way to celebrate the Best Picture nominees than to name drinks after them. The drinks do look enticing to say the least.

THE FIGHTER:
Grey Goose L’Orange Prize Fighter

  • 1 ½ parts Grey Goose L’Orange Flavored Vodka
  • 1 part fresh blood orange juice
  • ½ part fresh lemon juice
  • ½ part simple syrup
  • 1 thin slide of japaleno

Place jalapeno and simple syrup in the bottom of a cocktail shaker and muddle well.
Add ice and remaining ingredients, and shake vigorously.
Strain into a chilled martini glass with a sugared rim and present with a slice of jalapeno.

More drinks after the jump.

Can Hollywood Take A Joke?

Why is it that Hollyweird has their panties in a bunch? Maybe because they happen to take themselves too seriously? Or possibly because the majority of them are pretentious, self-righteous, “do-gooders” that are impervious to ridicule. Nonetheless, it was refreshing to hear (since I don’t watch the Golden Globes) that Ricky Gervais kicked some of these celebs off their pedestal. Some of the articles I’ve read are asking for Gervais’ head, like head of HFPA (I don’t care what that means) Philip Beck with statements like “…definitely crossed the line. And some of the things were totally unacceptable. But that’s Ricky.” Whatever, pull the stick out of your ass please? Below I have two videos of some of things Gervais said. You can see that some of the laughs were the ‘I know I shouldn’t be laughing’ ones.

And The Award For Best Supporting Actor Goes To…


By now most of you that Christian Bale received a nomination for Best Supporting Actor for this year’s Oscars. Bale is exceptional as Dicky Ekland, Micky Ward’s half-brother who happens to be a crackhead. Bale shows dedication to his craft with his rapid weight-loss for this role, which he isn’t a stranger of (The Machinist). He steals the show in every scene by displaying true grit along with a drug addict’s charm. Honestly, its refreshing to see Bale do a role where he isn’t a pretentious-rich-prick, there was a human element that he brought out as the film goes along. If you having seen The Fighter, go see it now! Below is the real Dicky Ekland.
