    • SNL just blew the opening Charlie Sheen skit. Going to bed instead of watching this unfunny show. #winning 9 years ago
    • Best idea I've heard so far this week - have Charlie Sheen host next year's Oscars. Highest ratings ever! 9 years ago
    • I still can't believe that Kathryn Bigelow directed Point Break. I am an EFF-BEE-EYE agent. #oscars 9 years ago
    • Wow, first the Globes and now the Oscars fail to recognize Corey Haim. Feldman's gonna be pissed. 9 years ago

SAS Movie Review – The Fighter

Can I go the distance and watch an entire Marky Mark movie?  Does The Fighter stand a puncher’s chance at winning at the Oscars?   Or will it get knocked out by the competition?  Can I come up with any more boxing terms?  Uppercut.  Yes I can.

SAS = Short Attention Span – basically if you’re like me, you don’t want to read a 3 page review of a movie that’s filled with dictionary look-up words and talks in-depth about the subtle nuances and how they correlate to post-modern, neo-classical, Machiavellian, or whatever random crap that was probably taught to me in school years ago, but has since been replaced with useless knowledge about things that would only help me in a People magazine crossword puzzle.

The point is, I will only write a simple review, nothing more than a page, and nothing that will ruin any aspect of the movie (I hope). So enjoy…

American Idol Recap – Nashville

In case you missed it, click here for last night’s recap of the 2-hour Milwaukee show. Same format as always, I’m going to give you a recap of all the performances shown in ten words or less. Sometimes I cheat and go over, but who are you, the blog police? Hopefully no one is writing a nine words or less blog.

Tonight we’re in Nashville, and we get Darius Thomas belting out a 20 second long high note while both BIFF and Blanche are looking like they might want to jump thru the TV and punch Darius.  I’m gonna allow it.

Christine McCaffrey – Maggie – “She can’t even speak right.” Me – “She can’t even see straight”

*Rob Bolin / *Chelsee Oaks – this qualifies as one of the strangest things on Idol.  Ex-boyfriend/ex-girlfriend who duet together but can’t get along even as friends right now.   Best part was Chelsee’s current boyfriend there as well looking incredibly awkward.  Move over Brad Pitt/Jennifer Aniston, I’m now rooting for Rob and Chelsee to get back together.

American Idol Recap – Milwaukee

Delayed recap thanks to the most bizarre snow storm I’ve ever seen. At no point in time should a normal 30 minute commute take 10+ hours.  So it’s a day late,  but if you missed it last night or want a quick refresher of what you saw (or didn’t see), here’s my 10 words or less recap of each performance.

“Oh, there’s a new opening credits,” notes Maggie.  Only took 3 episodes for her to notice.

Idol is live (well it was six months ago) from Milwaukee, home of former Idol bronze medalist Danny Gokey, but more importantly this is a city of rich history.  Isn’t that right Alice Cooper?

(As always, contestants who make it to Hollywood are listed with an asterisk)

*Scottie McCreery – country version of former contestant John Stephens

Steven Tyler just uttered the rarely used phrase “f*** a duck,” to which Jennifer Lopez suggested they edit that to “suck a duck.”. Yeah, because that’s a lot more kid friendly.
