Trailer Talk - This Week In Movies: 'Zombieland,' 'Whip It' & More

9/28/2009 8:57am EDT
I've been going over my zombie survival plan and acquiring a variety of weapons in preparation for the arrival of "Zombieland" in theaters this week. Actually, I haven't been acquiring weapons since purchasing a gun is a lengthy process in Massachusetts, but I have been foaming at the mouth to see this zombie comedy since I watched the initial trailer several months ago.

Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson look like the perfect odd couple paired together in the hopes of survival. Eisenberg oozes the fraidy cat vibe in every clip I've seen of the movie, while Harrelson does his best mac...

Five Most Overrated & Underrated Political Films

11/14/2008 9:57am EST
We just went through the most fascinating and compelling election season ever in the television age. A lot of people are glad it's over, but there are those who simply can't get enough of the entertainment that is politics.

Unfortunately for the latter group, the only politics on TV right now involves Sarah Palin making the rounds and discussing the matters of a state with a population density that makes the Sahara Desert look like mid-town Manhattan. In other words, it's a snoozer.

So the last respite for these political junkies is the political movie. But which to choose? Th...

Barack Obama and John McCain trade serious barbs against one another during the Presidential Election. But recently we got to see the two tell a few jokes about the other candidate as well as themselves. Watch the two videos below and decide who is funnier!

Last night was the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner. Since 1960, it has been an event in which presidential candidates give speeches and help the foundation sell tickets to raise money for Catholic charities (this year's draw? $3.9 million).

Recently, it has become a chance for the candidates to give humorous speeches...

Oliver Stone's 'W': Is This Movie Necessary?

10/17/2008 9:40am EDT
Turn on any television lately and it is near impossible to avoid the immense amount of political coverage being offered -- which is not necessarily a bad thing, considering the magnitude of this years election. One of the few refuges from the pundits and wonks was the local Cineplex, this all changes this weekend with the release of Oliver Stone's W.

The question is: Is this movie necessary? Well, maybe. It is an interesting dynamic that this movie is being released -- thanks to a rush production job; they started filming in May! -- while George W. Bush is still very much the President...

Linda Rondstadt
Linda Ronstadt has launched a blistering attack on President George W. Bush, declaring she is embarrassed to be from the same country as him. The outspoken star was thrown out of a Las Vegas, Nevada, casino in 2004 after praising Michael Moore for his anti-Bush movie Fahrenheit 9/11.

Two years on she hasn't softened her views, echoing those of country music trio The Dixie Chicks. She says, "The Dixie Chicks said they were embarrassed he was from Texas. I'm embarrassed George Bush is from the United States. He's an idiot. He's enormously incompetent on both the domestic and internation...
