There's your dame to kill for, right there.
Also, the trailer has a trailer, in the form of a non-skippable preview from the From Dusk Till Dawn series tacked on the beginning. I have to say, both worry me a bit, as they seem to have that Robert Rodriguez "I did this fast and I think you can't tell it was on the cheap, but really you can" look. Given how long it took to make another Sin City, you'd hope a rushed look wouldn't be the issue.
I know, the Aswang is a demon from Filipino folklore that's somewhere between vampire and werewolf. But its name is "ass wang."
I don't have a joke. Do I need one here? Who's afraid of an ass wang? Want to see a good ass-wang penetration? Because there's video of an ass wang probing. Will the ass wang drain your fluids?
I checked with a Filipino friend - the "a" sound is generally pronounced "ah," though the "s" and everything else are pronounced as you;d expect. So if you say it properly, you sound like an English person saying "arse wang." Which is even better.

That last one which focused on the puppet-makers while playing "They've Got the Whole World in Their Hands" really started to piss me off after a while, by being both inappropriately religious (from BOTH sides of the spiritual aisle) and not focusing on the actual film. Mercifully, this new trailer for the stop-motion adventure about a boy adopted by trolls emphasizes madcap action, and features Cee-Lo Green covering Elvis. All of which makes up for a multitude of sins.
Though if we're pilfering the pop past, there is a more obvious and awesome choice they've overlooked...
"Journey to the West" feels like an overly ordinary title for a film that is anything but. Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle's Stephen Chow has hardly made the story of immigration that the words might suggest, instead giving us a loose adaptation of the Chinese legend of the Monkey King, and one Buddhist's battle to protect his village against three demons.
In a TR-exclusive clip, you're going to get a look at what happens when one of those demons confronts the Monkey King. Let's just say that pain is a-foot.

Luke's mother-in-law is former LAPD, a licensed property appraiser and a self-described crazy cat lady. None of which has prepared her for TR readers. All questions and answers are real.
Well, hi all. Don't really have anything to rant about this week. We did have a great rain storm last week. I have 2 seasonal streams on my property and they both ran last week; we really needed the water. Made a good crock pot soup - I like soup on rainy weekends. This one had a base of cream of potato and cream of mushroom soup, green beans, garlic and sausage. Yum. Little Frizzy dragged a large area rug from the kitchen all the way to the living room one night. The rug weighs more than he does, but he is determined. Anyway, it is getting late and so on to the questions.
Seriously, who would have thought the mind behind Family Guy could somehow Voltron up with Carl Sagan's widow and the man, the mustache, Mr. Neil deGrasse Tyson to make a big deal science show that might just get everyone in your household hyped about the universe, life, and the origins of both?
Fox and NatGeo invited Topless Robot out to Space Camp in Huntsville to view the premiere of the 13-episode series and have a chat with its co-creator and Carl Sagan's widow, Ann Druyan in advance of its March 9th premiere. And I have to say Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey is good - very good. So good, I would hazard to say that the reinvention of the classic '70s science series is actually important. And we're going to tell you the eight reasons why you shouldn't miss it.
Come with me...
Arduboy, a portable gaming device that plays much the same way as a similar-sounding product that rhymes with "mintendo shmame shmoy," fits in your wallet and/or business card holder. The catch? So far, it can only play Tetris. The bonus? In the decade or so to come, you'll be telling kids, "In my day, we had it so hard, we could only play Tetris on our business cards!"
Because a "catch 'em all" game about pocket monsters called "Ardumon" is in development for this too. It shouldn't be too "ardu" figure out, right?
Check out the Tetris in action...
Why talk about Jeff Dunham at all? Well, because despite the fact that he appeals to a more redneck crowd, he is profoundly a nerd - ventriloquism has always required a specifically dorky talent, not to mention an affinity for playing with dolls. And with the money he's made from branching it out into more bizarre, action-figure-ish characters like Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Dunham bought a Michael Keaton Batmobile and had it made drivable (his wedding cake was also styled like the 1989 Batcave).
So now he gets to make a movie...and it's animated. Meaning that the one thing he's really good at (ventriloquism) is a completely irrelevant skill. And dear god, does this look like the worst thing ever. Blending "what a country" tropes with terrorism shtick that Peter Griffin would find overly juvenile, it also looks to try to redeeem a character who is meant to be a comedic villain. I know from my late father-in-law that troops in Afghanistan really enjoyed the Achmed character...and I think they deserve way better than what this looks to be. If Dunham's this desperate for attention, he should start pretending to be Lena's dad.
"Got my back to the wall, this is a rap, this is war, take a sabbatical, I battle anybody who want it." Game of Thrones is arguably one of the whitest shows going, but it's getting an official "mixtape" called Catch the Throne for free download, in which rappers sampling the show's soundtrack will create "songs that encourage and inspire listeners who may not have been immersed in the storylines to catch up on previous seasons of Game of Thrones using HBOGO." (Somehow I doubt there'll be one entitled "Pay for Premium Cable, Yo," but that does seem to be the subtext.)
"I sit and think when I'm in my zone, cuz life is like a game of thrones." Starting March 7th, you can download it for free. Will you?
