If you’ve taken a peek at my staff page, you will know that I have a sixth sense in predicting the success of a film.
They say money talks. That’s definitely true in the film industry. With that, I’d like to welcome you to my inaugural edition of Will It Bomb? (Thanks to Mike for the title!). Basically, I will give you the rundown of each week’s new releases, and I will make the call of whether or not it will make any cash at the Box Office.
TV Land has released a list of the Top 100 TV Catchphrases of all time. Included on that list are such classics as “D’oh!” (Homer Simpson, The Simpsons), “Holy (insert phrase here) Batman!” (Robin, Batman TV series) and “You rang?” (Lurch, The Addams Family). My favorite phrase on the list is from my favorite comedy, How I Met Your Mother – “Suit Up!” said by Barney Stinson. Barney is played by the inimitable Neil Patrick Harris (at right).
While there are several new shows included on the list (including Survivor, The O.C., etc), How I Met Your Mother is only in its second season. It seems to me to be a great honor for a newbie show to be included in the top 100 of all time. If you haven’t seen it yet, you’re seriously missing out. To catch up, I suggest reading Barney’s Blog, featured on CBS.com. It’s a perfect example of the awesomeness that is NPH’s character on the show. Also, Season One of the show is available now on Amazon.com.
MovieSnobs would like to extend a very Happy Birthday to actor William Fichtner! The versatile actor turns 50 today, and stars in tonight’s pivotal fall finale of hit show Prison Break. You can view Fichtner’s MovieSnobs reviews here. We suggest a viewing of The Perfect Storm to see Fichtner in action.
