'Castle' Recap: 3x20 - 'Slice Of Death' Combines Pizza, Drugs And Film Noir

April 5th, 2011 2:07pm EDT
“Slice of Death” opens with a body reveal worthy of Bones. A man and woman stumble into a restaurant, kissing passionately. The woman squeals a requisite “I have to tweet this” to inform us that the man she’s currently making out with is some sort of celebrity. She refers to him as “Terrific Nick,” but he corrects her: “Authentic Nick.” Seeing as this is New York, they can only be one place: a pizza restaurant. The girl comments on the (wonderful) smell in the restaurant. They investigate and discover (gross) a body in the pizza oven. Cut to (grosser) Castle frying bacon for Alexis.

Over the years many classic movies have been remade. Don't get me wrong, some of those remakes have been really good. But the majority of the movies have been really bad.

These days, special effects are being taken to a whole new level, but that's not always a good thing. One of the main reasons these films are classics is because CGI was in the distant future. People loved the original "Godzilla" because you can see the man in the Godzilla costume crushing a cardboard box, also known as Tokyo.

There are few movies that have scared me, and one of those films was the 1978 movie "Ha...

San Francisco, California, police have launched an investigation into the whereabouts of a replica of the Maltese Falcon used in Humphrey Bogart's cult 1941 movie after it was stolen from a diner. A thief reportedly stole the movie memorabilia item overnight on Saturday from John's Grill and now the owners are offering a $25,000 reward for the recovery of the plaster bird.
