“The Walking Dead” season two memes

Last week, Funny or Die posted a bunch of “Walking Dead” memes. I guffawed my way through them earlier today, and the following five were just begging to be shared:

Adam Levine moving from “The Voice” to… “American Horror Story”?

That’s what the word has been around the blog-o-sphere lately.

It seems a bit of an odd pairing, seeing as how Adam Levine has never technically acted before. Why would he start with “American Horror Story”?

Well, in my professional opinion, take a look at the (somewhat) resemblance between Mr. Levine and Dylan McDermott, the star of the show’s first season.

Pretty freaky huh? Not particularly. They both have brown hair and a five o’clock shadow. But, I predict that if the casting choice does go through, season two of “American Horror Story” will be all about an alternate universe where Kate Mara’s psycho character actually survived, gave birth to Ben’s bastard child and we fast forward 25 years into the future. Boom. Adam Levine will play Kate Mara and Dylan McDermott’s love child.

Just you wait. Come October when the show’s second season premieres, you will remember this moment.

“The Devil Inside” DVD artwork

…leaves something to be desired, to say the least.

Although it won’t be hitting store shelves on DVD and Blu-ray until May 15th, the artwork is centered around an image that was present in the movie for approximately 0.5 seconds. Merely a brief glimpse.

It’s a creepy image, I’ll give you that one. But does it say anything about the movie? Not particularly.

I suppose it’s somewhat appropriate, since the film left something to be desired as well.

What do you think?

“Bully” nixes R-rating, goes unrated

If you follow film at all, you’ve more than likely heard the controversy surrounding the eagerly anticipated documentary “Bully.” Even if you don’t follow movie news, it’s probably hard to scroll through your Twitter feed and not see one celebrity or another promoting the movie.

In case you’ve been living under a rock lately, let me break it down for you. “Bully” was slapped with an R-rating by the MPAA, and many people were outraged that those who should be seeing the movie—kids—would not be permitted to do so in theatres.

The film received an R-rating due to language. Now, let me just throw something out there for the MPAA to mull over. Do you seriously think middle/high school aged kids, the ones who are being bullied, the ones who are responsible for being bullied, the ones who stand by and do nothing while others are bullied, have never heard the “f word” before?

Let me tell you something. They have.

Thank GOODNESS the Weinstein Company is refusing the MPAA’s rating and releasing “Bully” as an unrated film. Not allowing school aged children to see this film would be defeating its entire purpose. The movie was made for kids in order to realize how their actions impact others.

If I were a parent, I would be taking my kid to see it. If I were a schoolteacher, hey kids, get ready for a field trip to the local AMC! If you can’t drag yourself to a theatre this weekend, at the very least, watch the trailer below.

“Bully” hits theatres Friday, March 30.

Song of the Day: “I Will Keep the Bad Things From You”

To end your St. Patty’s day on a wonderful note, I give you one of the most poetic, beautiful songs out there:

I will keep the bad things from you / I will keep a straight face honey /
You can keep your last name if you want to / I will give you all my money /
I could take a plane right to you / If I could just stop running /
What if all this was true?

Malcolm McDowell receives star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Yesterday, Malcolm McDowell received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. While this event should have occurred about 20+ years ago, better late than never, right?

At the age of 68, McDowell has been in a number of fantastic films, including A Clockwork Orange and Halloween.

Fellow British actor Gary Oldman was present to honor McDowell. The event resulted in what is perhaps the most precious picture I have ever seen.

Congrats, Malcolm!
