Jimmy Fallon’s New Album, ‘Blow Your Pants Off,’ To Be Released Today! In Addition, Fallon’s “Thank You Notes 2″ Book Is Now a New York Times Bestseller
If you had all the time in the world, what would you do? Would you take it one day at a time? Would you take any risks? Those questions and lot more make you wonder as you take in the new movie In Time. In Time gives a sci-fi twist to the age old battle between the haves and the have-nots. In the case of In Time, time is money – literally.
When a film taps into a recurring theme like the fabled existence of complication-free ‘relations’, it stands to reason that aspects of it’s script would appear like faded remnants of rom-coms in the past. These days it’s hard to talk about anything relevant to modern sexuality and relationships without inadvertently naming a handful of clichéd movie titles, and you’d think that Friends With Benefits would be no exception. Surprisingly, it is.
Friends With Benefits is not ground-breaking, earth-shattering moviemaking. It won’t change the movie game. It won’t even change your life. However, it’ll charm the pants off of you and make you laugh (especially with one scene past the credits), and it’ll even make you go and immediately download “Jump” by Kriss Kross after the movie’s over. Justin Timberlake gives us his most satisfying performance since The Social Network and also gives this movie the shining smile you’ll take with you when you leave the theater.

Elizabeth Halsey is mean. She’s manipulative, conniving and possibly the worst teacher to ever grace this Earth. In Bad Teacher, Cameron Diaz stretches from her usual sweetheart roles to play the extremely unlikeable Elizabeth, but her performance is sadly weighed down by poor writing and bad jokes.
In film, there are very few instances of pure, unadulterated evil (with no supernatural strings attached). Keyser Söze from The Usual Suspects comes to mind easily as one of the top villains in film, with John Doe from Se7en coming right behind in second place; Max Cady from Cape Fear (as played by both Robert Mitchum in 1962 and Robert DeNiro in the 1991 remake) and Reverend Harry Powell from The Night of the Hunter (oddly enough, played by Mitchum as well) tie for a close third. However, is it more evil to end someone’s life or to willingly hurt people and feel no remorse about it? Khan Noonien Singh would say it is worse to hurt someone than to kill him; with that in mind, Bad Teacher’s Elizabeth Halsey gets my vote as one of moviedom’s all-time most ruthless villains.

If you’re smarter than the average bear (Not a 5th Grader), then you can win this Yogi Bear (Blu-Ray Combo Pack)DVD!
I’ve been a big fan of Yogi Bear and Boo Boo ever since I was a kid. It’s a cartoon that I have fond memories of. A big brown bear so intent upon getting every picnic basket he can. Sure, although he wears a collar and tie and hat, the animators never thought to put pants on him. That kind of reminds me of the silly commercials last year we saw in theaters before the movies. He’s a silly bear, smarter than the average one. So you’d think that with all the history this show has, and its millions of fans from small children to older adults, the filmmakers would have put in a lot of effort to give a movie that fans would respect and cherish. Unfortunately, not so.
