At least for a four episode arc as a Sabre branch manager.
Will it be good? Dunno. Could be interesting, even though Ferrell’s work has gone done hill.
..and for the record…Anchorman = not that funny.
Yeah, I said it. Wanna fight?
I’m not generally a huge fan of Sacha Baron Cohen’s impressionist comedy. I didn’t get into “Da Ali G Show” and the trailers for Borat didn’t even muster a slight chuckle out of me. So when I first heard Cohen was making a movie about a gay Austrian, I thought “Oh lord, here comes Borat 2”.
But for whatever reason Bruno strikes me as a hell of a lot funnier than either Ali G or Borat. After watching these clips from a Bruno interview on famous Australian TV show Rove, I think Cohen has finally convinced me to shell out $9 bucks to see him play gay for 2 hours.
If you’re into Cohen’s work, or even remotely interested in seeing Bruno you’ve got to check out the youtube of his interview below the fold…

Warner Brothers just released a 4 minute extended trailer from the new terminator: Terminator: Salvation
A couple of thoughts:
1. I’m infinitely skeptical of any movie that gets a 4 minute trailer. In my experience, most of the big budget Hollywood movies that get released these days don’t even have 4 minutes of a quality movie. And we all know that one of the worse movie experiences is when you’re sitting in the theater and you realize that all the good parts of the movie were in the trailer.
2. I’m even more skeptical of a badass action movie that has a PG=13 rating ESPECIALLY a Terminator movie. Sure, movies have pulled it off before, The Dark Knight comes to mind, but I can ‘t recall a movie who’s main selling point was a heavy dosage of violence, explosions, and post apocalyptic war who has pulled it off. I might be willing to overlook this if not for the seal clubbing that was Terminator 3. A “movie” that had absolutely nothing good about it. Not to mention that James Cameron is being replaced by McG. Yes, the same McG that directed Charlie’s Angels. Ugh
2008 was a great year for movies. But you wouldn’t know that if you, like most people, judge the quality of a movie based on the standards of the Oscar committee which is good but susceptible to epic mistakes. (No Grand Torino nod for best movie. WTF?)
That’s where I come in. Unlike the politically driven Academy, I uses my eyes and ears to judge the quality of a movie. But more important than that, my spectrum of quality movies far exceeds the limited vision of Hollywood. So get your Netflix queues ready, because I’ve got 5 movies I’ve seen, and you need to see.
