Let’s All Assess the Future Prospects of Will Smith

Modern Family Swearing, LL Rising, Cougar Town Returning and More

Normally, I’d take any opportunity to stick it to the Hollywood studio machine. So under normal circumstances, this Internet blackout thing would be right up my alley.

Catch-Up Friday and the best movie montages

Right to the links, in somewhat lightning round fashion so you have time to have fun with the YouTube clips at the bottom. I know I had fun finding them: Man, it’s been, like, what, a couple months since George Lucas announced his latest way to scam us out of money? We’re due for another one […]
