So, if you listened to any of the recent podcasts we released (under a different name, that is) you would have heard CERTAIN PEOPLE asking me to watch the movie “Due Date” and telling me that it was a funny, modern version of “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” turned up to 11…
In just a few days, Screen Gems will release The Roommate, or as I like to call it: “Single White Female Goes to College.” Minka Kelly from Friday Night Lights is assigned a dorm room with Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester, who then takes over her life. The preview warns, “Meet your new roommate. She wants to befriend you, she wants to protect you, and on February 4th, she wants to become you!”
She wants to “become” you? Could there be a more chick-oriented concept for a thriller?
I have to hand it to RED: I really wasn’t sure I’d appreciate the film’s depiction of a bunch of over-the-hill government-trained killers. In any other movie, they’d be fumbling their way scene to scene, something intended to be far more comical, and watch as their kills come by misadventure rather than through channeling their former glory. Oh, sure, it’s based off a critically acclaimed comic book series, but who reads comic books?
Sure, we produce some great podcasts here at FleshEatingZipper, but it’s not as if we don’t have our own favorites from other sites (whatever those are). Here’s what’s in my weekly podcast rotation!
They say the economy in India will surpass the U.S. economy in less than three decades. If the clip below from last year’s huge Bollywood release “Robot” is any indication, they’re ready to show Michael Bay and James Cameron how big-budget cheese is really done. If this is what they can do with a $32.5 million budget, I want to see what they do with $200 million. Betcha it’ll be better than blue people. Video after the break!

Ok…I know this video is so old it owes Moses 14 shekels but I’ve always found it funny.
This is a bunch of tools trying to fire a .700 Nitro Express rifle which, apparently, has a little bit of recoil.
I’m not sure which is funnier, the Arabs flying across the room or the guy laughing in the background.
Ha ha ha haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
