JT's New Movie Trailer: How Bad Is It? (VIDEO, POLL)

JT's New Movie Trailer: How Bad Is It? (VIDEO, POLL)

Commented Aug 5, 2009 at 22:33:36 in Entertainment

“It's not my kind of movie, but the trailer wasn't nearly as bad as the headline insinuated.

I'll give Timberlake credit where it's due: He was actually pretty good in "Alpha Dog."

Hey, DixieMelody, I'm with you. "Funny People" was insufferably bad...and it went on forever. Don't ask me how it ended. After the first 2 hours, I decided to reclaim my life. I've never walked out of a movie before.”
Eli Manning, Giants Agree To 6 Years, $97 Million Contract

Eli Manning, Giants Agree To 6 Years, $97 Million Contract

“Definitely overrated -- and I'm a Giants fan. Eli Manning was the 2nd most intercepted passer in the league when the DEFENSE saved him and took the team to the Super Bowl. He played so bad that year that if he didn't have the name MANNING plastered on his back, he would have been benched by mid-season. I think Archie has naked photos of someone in the front office.

Anyone who watched the Super Bowl against the Pats knows that the defensive unit won that game -- along with David Tyree's awesome catch of Manning's bad pass.

Justin Tuck's Super Bowel MVP award is somewhere in Eli Manning's house.”

“My mother lives in the area as well. Everyone nearby is haunted by this. The more we learn about it, the more enraged I get. My heartfelt condolences go out to the Bastardi family.”

“This is wonderful news! All the best to the journalists and their families, who have endured so much.

Thanks, Bill! You rock!

Thanks, Barack, for sending Bill (we KNOW you did) -- and Happy Birthday!

Was that fireworks I just heard?. Nah...it was just Newt Gingrich's head exploding.”

“LOL @ Newt Gingrich's head exploding!”

“yes it's great when the US government (we KNOW they did, right?) apologies for doing nothing wrong”

“Bill will return without the journalists. They will be freed 2 or 3 weeks later. It's all about appearances. North Korea can't let the world think they are giving into the U.S. Still, an agreement will be reached -- at least I hope so anyway.

Go get 'em, Bill!”

“Seven years ago, I lost a friend to a drunk driver. Just thinking about it still enrages me. My condolences to Ms. Cohen's family and friends. I hope they get justice, but unfortunately, they will never get to see their loved one again.”

“As a child, Omer looked a little like Blanket does now, but he looked nothing like MJ did when he was a kid. If Omer & Blanket do, in fact, have the same bio-dad, that man probably was not MJ.”

ABC Docudrama On 9/11 Attacks Blames Clinton...

“To hell with this stupid movie! Yes, it sounds like a deliberate pack of lies -- and that totally sucks -- but no one will be watching it anyway. The NFL kicks off regular season play this coming week, and while this right-wing sleaze-fest is playing on ABC, the Indianapolis Colts and the NY Giants -- that's Peyton Manning versus Eli Manning -- will be playing on NBC.

GO, BIG BLUE! (And cheers to the blue states as well!)”

Dixie Chicks On CNN: Rumsfeld "Weaves Around Questions...He's The Weaver"...

Commented Jun 1, 2006 at 14:47:02 in Home

“I enjoyed the Dixie Chicks before the ruckus started and I absolutely love them now.

As for the ruckus itself, I am curious about something. Willie Nelson spoke out against the war early. He recorded a song called "Whatever Happened to Peace on Earth?" Nobody bulldozed his records. Tobey Keith even recorded a duet with him ("Beer for My Horses"). Rodney Crowell has been a proud "blueneck" for a long time, and country radio didn't kick him off the air. Travis Tritt ("Twit?") trash-mouthed the Dixie Chicks, and then recorded a duet with John Mellencamp (who HATES Bush and slammed him in a song called "From Washington") that was called "What Say You?" which celebrated people expressing opposing views.

My question is this: Could the issue here not only be dissent but also misogyny? If the Dixie Chicks had actually been the Dixie Dudes, would Tobey Keith and the rest of his pungent ilk have had such a problem with them voicing their opinions? What do you think?”

VMA Ratings Plummet...

“HouseOfMayhem is right! My cable company just started airing The Tube and it is excellent!

As for MTV: Why are they still having video music awards when they don't play video music anymore? Shouldn't they be having awards for Cribs, spoiled reality stars, and stupid pranks?

Does anyone even know what the "M" in MTV stands for anymore?”

VIDEO: Youth Coach Charged With Felony After Slamming Child On Other Team...

Commented Sep 5, 2006 at 17:45:21 in Home

“I began playing football in middle school and continued up through college. Memo to the clown who got arrested: Be it right or wrong, athletes have a way of implementing their own form of justice. You were not just this kid's coach...you are his daddy. Guess what, Daddy? You just painted a bullseye on the back of your little boy's jersey! If you think he took a cheap hit this time, just wait until the next game. He will get his butt kicked from every possible direction. He may even take a few shots from his own teammates. They're probably all laughing at him because his daddy had to run out onto the field and save him. If you're smart, Daddy, you'll pull your little baby boy out of the league while his limbs are still attached.

As for the late hit, it's the ref's responsibility to keep the game under control. A late hit should garner a 15-yard penalty, which does not make the player who throws one very popular with his teammates when comes back to the bench. It could even get a player ejected, which may have been appropriate here.

Daddy had a right to scream his head off at the ref, but he had no business running out onto the field. We all know that the kid he smacked down did not get hurt, so we probably shouldn't waste time that the cops and the courts could use in better ways. The doofus should just be kicked out of the league and banned from coaching or even attending games. His jumping the fence to avoid facing the wrath of people his own size makes him a scuzzy coward who shouldn't be coaching kids in the first place.”

US Wins Scoop Contest On Nick And Jessica Split…

Commented Nov 29, 2005 at 21:55:32 in Entertainment

“Jessica Simpson was famous for being a virgin when she got married. She is no longer a virgin. Nick Lachey was famous for being married to the girl who was a virgin when he married her. Very soon, he will no longer be married. Neither one was famous for any detectable talent. I hope they put all that instant money they received from their reality show into a good mutual fund. If either one of them has to actually work for a living anytime in the future, they will surely die.”

Five New Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Inductees:
Black Sabbath
Miles Davis
Sex Pistols
Blondie
Lynyrd Skynyrd...

“I have a problem with Skynard. Isn't "Sweet Home Alabama" a tribute to George "Segregation Forever" Wallace? ("In Birmingham, we love the governor and we all did what we could do.") If I'm wrong about this, someone let me know, but otherwise I've got no use for a bunch of Confederate flag waving jerks.

I think Blondie deserves the credit for being innovators during the early days of punk. Unfortunately, radio didn't catch up with them until they recorded some pop songs, so many listeners weren't aware of the extent of their rock contribution.

As for Miles Davis...his talent is legendary. He has influenced so many musicians in so many different genres that he should have a place in any music hall of fame.”
