The geniuses in Hollywood and WWE are teaming up for a reboot of “Leprechaun.”

HBO canceled its racing show “Luck” after three horses died.

“Weeds” is returning for yet another season in July.

Attractive Scientologist Jenna Elfman has been cast as the first lady in NBC’s new sitcom “1600 Penn.”

There’s a new “Garbage Pail Kids” movie in the works by stop-motion animation director PES.

Matthew Perry and his girlfriend, Lizzie Caplan, attended the closing night of the play “Assistance.”

Movies Out This Weekend
21 Jump Street - This is a movie version of a TV show that I don’t remember anybody loving all that much in the first place.  Yet, this movie somehow is “certified fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes with 87%.  I’m conflicted about this movie, because it actually looks like it could be pretty good, but it is also a reflection of the complete creative bankruptsy in Hollywood and seeing it will only encourage them to keep remaking and adapting TV show.  Soon we will have a “Green Acres” movie starring Blake Lively, whoever that is.

  1. No way you watched that many movies this week.

    Remember the original, horrifying Garbage Pail Kids movie?

    All of the Rock's movies are AWFUL!

    21 Jump Street will be funny. it's like a "real" movie that just uses the name of something before so morons will buy tickets to it. I, as a fellow moron, will buy tickets to it because of the scene where Rob Riggle remarks on Channing Tatums muscle tone as a "high schooler" and asks him if he went through puberty at age 7.

  2. I do remember the original Garbage Pail Kids movie. It was so awful and made no sense.

  3. You should add short reviews of some of the movies you rate Jake, I would like to read them! I can't believe Matthew Perry is dating Lizzy Caplan!! I love Matthew Perry Watch SO MUCH!!!

  4. wait - the thing about MP and Lizzy Caplan is real?

  5. Bub, I have a blog where I review every movie I see, they aren't very good reviews (www.robotholocaust.blogspot.com)

    1. I know Jake! I think it's time to start incorporating them into UW!! I would read them then!!!

    2. Okay, I'll try it on the next one if I remember!

  6. He is 13 years older than her - she is OUR age. This is BULLSHIT.

  7. I agree with Bub - you should incorporate your movie reviews. I also agree that Perry and Caplan are indeed a dream team!
