The Obama National Anthem

Posted by Sal Traina Categories: Elections, Humor, Media, Videos,

I found this video pretty funny. I’m a regular listener to talk radio, and I heard this song on The Glenn Beck Program. It’s nationally syndicated, and the show is the third most listened to in the country. He’s a lot different than other talk show hosts because he’s more personable, and adds humor unlike others. He also has a television program every evening at 7PM and 9PM on CNN Headline News. You can get more information about him here.

T-Mobile Fav 5 outed on SNL

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Cell Phones, Videos,

While ‘s Fav 5 might sound like a fantastic idea, we’ve all known somewhere deep, deep down, that it could only spell disaster. It took to finally pin it down, and share with the nation why everyone should be very careful with who they choose to put on their five. Oh, and don’t even get us started on the MySpace Top 8. Be afraid.


Video: Wii commercial parody

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Culture, Nintendo, Wii,

Okay, we gotta hand it to these guys - when you put it like this, I guess really can seem lame. Unfortunately, a lot of games utilize similar mechanics as are found in this parody. However you feel about ‘s money-making machine, this one is definitely good for a laugh.

Video: Ridiculously amazing Halo 3 betrayal

Okay, so, you know how in accidents happen? You overzealously start chucking grenades, only to kill one enemy and two fellow teammates? Well, casualties are a part of battle, but this one takes the cake. Check out the video above to see what, in our opinion, has to be the most innocent Halo betrayal in known history.

Yeah. Got anything better than that?


Review: Young@Heart

Young@Heart posterSince 1982, the Young@Heart chorus, with members averaging an age of eighty, has wowed audiences with unique and entertaining interpretations of classic punk and rock songs.

Director Stephen Walker follows the geriatric troupe as they prepare for one of their biggest and most challenging undertakings: the Alive and Well tour. The film delves into the personal lives of key chorus members, spotlights group leader Bob Cilman, and attempts to explain the appeal of watching elderly people singing your favorite songs. The appeal doesn’t need much explaining, however—Young@Heart touts some of the most fascinating people you’re likely to find, and, if you have any doubts as to whether you’ll enjoy the film (like I did), by the end you’ll be wondering why you’ve never heard of these idiosyncratic octogenarians.

Bleeding Edge TV 260: Our CES 2008 blooper reel

We hope you’ve all enjoyed our video coverage. We’ve gone through our hours of footage, and picked out some of the best bloopers that our staff experienced. We know how disappointed you all probably are to realize that we aren’t perfect, but we think you should have gathered that from the Gear Live documentary.

Anyhow, have at it. We look forward to making fools out of ourselves again come 2009. Oh, and next year we will have to try and beat “hot dog guy” in the category of overall buffoonery. You’ll have to watch the video to see what we mean.


Interview With Martin McDonagh and Colin Farrell of ‘In Bruges’

Colin Farrell and Martin McDonagh


Last week, FilmCrunch had the opportunity to interview Martin McDonagh and Colin Farrell, director and star of the upcoming film In Bruges.

Ray (Colin Farrell) and Ken (Brendan Gleeson) are two hitmen sent to the Belgian city of Bruges after a botched job in London. They’ve been told by their boss, Harry (Ralph Fiennes), to do some sight-seeing, lie low and await further instruction. But the city, full of ancient architecture and historical landmarks, can’t satiate Ray and his need for distraction. The men venture out and soon discover that beneath the city’s quaint exterior lies a strange and disturbing underbelly, a surreal setting that causes them to begin to question life and death, right and wrong, and the purpose behind their little “vacation.”

For more about the film, visit the official site or read the FilmCrunch review.

Review: In Bruges

I love when I come into a film having preconceptions, and they are totally obliterated and replaced with the feeling that I’ve found something unique, something I was unable to foresee. That may seem a bit dramatic—In Bruges is, after all, a fairly linear story. But writer/director Martin McDonagh injects a dark, reflective tone into what could’ve easily been a talk-‘em-up, shoot-‘em-up Guy Ritchie film; those who’ve seen the trailer know what I mean. And while Ritchie films are appealing in their own right, In Bruges deviates significantly, exhibiting characters who somehow transcend their quick wit and hardened exteriors to reveal—much like the city itself—great history and depth.

Ray (Colin Farrell) and Ken (Brendan Gleeson) are two hitmen sent to the Belgian city of Bruges after a botched job in London. They’ve been told by their boss, Harry (Ralph Fiennes), to do some sight-seeing, lie low and await further instruction. But the city, full of ancient architecture and historical landmarks, can’t satiate Ray and his need for distraction. The job-gone-wrong had been Ray’s first assignment as hitman, but the unspeakable mess left in London is but a slight snag for long-timer Ken, numb to the violence of his profession.

What is the Super Bowl, anyway?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Championship, Super Bowl,

So, the Super Bowl happens in just a couple of days. Have you ever needed to explain to a child (or clueless non-football fan) what football is, and why the Super Bowl is so important? Our friend Ze gives it a shot…check out the video above. You may want to use this as your template for explaining the issue in the future - if you can be sure not to blink like he does.

This Week on HD DVD and Blu-ray: January 15, 2008

The Ten HD DVDAlright, yes—this article should have been written yesterday. But despite my lack of punctuality, I’ve decided to go ahead and post it anyway as part of a New Year’s resolution to write more. And this is a slow time for film in general, so I think I deserve a reprieve.

To be perfectly honest, little jumps out at me this week. We have the hilarious, slightly esoteric The Ten, helmed by some The State alumni and starring, well, just about everyone. Is there anything else worth mentioning? Could Girls Gone Wild: Baby Bash—Live and Uncensored be the best Blu-ray title this week? That seems a bit sad, doesn’t it? Don’t worry, HD DVD patrons—if you were looking for some girl-on-girl action, hold out until February 12th when it releases in your format.

I can’t wait for these sluggish few weeks to pass.

Check out the full list of high-def releases after the jump.
