Each week the entertainment world is flooded with news. Big news, little news, inconsequential news, and funny news. It flies around the web at breakneck pace and no matter wear you turn, no matter what entertainment site you go to, it all looks the same. Sure, the opinion may be different, but the core piece of information is the same.
Now, I would love to get in on the fun, but I barely have time to read it, much less write it. So, I try to do the next best thing, I send some of the more interesting (to me) stories out across the web on the Critical Outcast Tumblr Blog and then, at the end of the week, gather them together and add some of my own thoughts. Hopefully, you will find this interesting, entertaining, and maybe even worthwhile!
Avatar for Haiti
This is rather cool. Instead of dropping the bucks on another screening, why not donate that money to help the disaster relief in Haiti?
Pirahna 3D has Gotten Kicked out of April
Apparently, the Dimension has gotten cold feet about releasing the horror remake this April where it would have to compete with the anticipated Kick Ass. To avert the confrontation, the studio has pulled the Alexandre Aja (Haute Tension, The Hills Have Eyes) directed film and moved it tentatively to August. The trailer had just began running and I was looking forward to it. I have heard good things from screenings that have already happened. It looks goofy, campy, and I hear it is quite bloody.
Can Mel Still Pack a Theater?
With the upcoming release of Edge of Darkness, this column questions whether or not Mel is a box office draw. It is an interesting question, as it has been some time since Gibson appeared in a film and in the meantime has had his share of controversy. On top of that, other action stars of his era are not exactly the draws they used to be, look at guys like Bruce Willis and Sly Stallone. I, too, am curious how it will turn out. I think he still has some gas in the tank and this movie ould seem to play to his strengths.
