MP3 Deal: Van Halen’s ‘1984’
space

 van halen 1984Are you one of those people that only know Van Halen by their hits “Jump” and “Panama”?

Well then you’re in luck, because the MP3 album deal of the day over at Amazon today is the Van Halen album with said hits, 1984, for only $2.99.

The album, released in the year 1984, was the band’s final effort with charismatic frontman, singer David Lee Roth and also spawned the chart-topping “Hot For Teacher” and its subsequent popular music video (watch the video here below, it’s awesome).

Ok, here’s where I do the math for you: 1) You’d only be parting with $3, a steal for such a great rock record; 2) for said three bucks you get 8 songs, so it’s well below the usual 99 cents per song price; and 3) getting the three aforementioned hits together is worth the three bucks right there, so there’s really no better time than now to grab this album while it’s on sale (for a limited time only).

How the Wizard of Oz Should Have Ended

The gang over at How It Should Have Ended strikes again, this time targeting the beloved classic The Wizard of Oz.

In the original 1939 film, Kansas girl Dorothy is transported along with her little dog Toto to Munchkinland in the magical land of Oz. After being threatened by the Wicked Witch of the West, the good witch Glinda sets Dorothy off on a journey to follow the Yellow Brick Road to Emerald City to meet the Wizard who will help get the lost girl home.

As we know, Dorothy meets new friends on her arduous journey, but also is in constant danger from the Wicked Witch. As the How Should Have Ended guys point out, it’s a lot for Dorothy to go through and the motives of the “good characters” are somewhat questionable.

Watch the two-minute animated video here below of how The Wizard of Oz should have ended.

sherlock holmes london

Sherlock HolmesWe’ve read and seen many things for Guy Ritchie‘s upcoming new vision of Sherlock Holmes, which is finally preparing to be released tomorrow on Christmas Day. To celebrate the release of this new movie as well as the history of the cherished Arthur Conan Doyle character itself, Londonist went above and beyond the above and beyond to bring us a very cool new look at the actual locations within the world surrounding Holmes: London. The beloved England city is as much a character of the Sherlock Holmes mythology as Watson is, and now you can visit the places and general locations that the crime solving duo visit with this detailed mapping. Head on over to the website to check out their handy work!

The impressive thing about this interactive map is that they didn’t half-ass it at all; the website went ahead and re-read all of the old Sherlock Holmes stories and put together all of the locations to map out. It comes handy with a key that specifies precise locations, general locations, actual Holmes-related locations, and paths that were traveled. No word yet on how many of these locations will be featured in this latest Sherlock Holmes adventure.

Deal: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2The Gold Box spotlight deal of the day over at Amazon today is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for Xbox 360, PS3, or PC for only $39.99 each (that’s 33% off the list price of $59.99).

This sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare sold almost 5 million copies in its first day of release back in November, so chances are, most of you who wanted it already own it, but if you were holding out for a sale — the day is here! But, this sale is only for today while supplies last, so grab it while you can before it sells out.

From what I’ve been told, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 combines a thrilling single player story with some very fine cooperative segments to make one of the best multiplayer games ever. This sequel takes place five years after the original Modern Warfare (all other Call of Duty games take place in a World War II setting), and sees you filling the shoes of multiple different characters as they fight in battles all over the world.

What’s Become of Disney’s ‘King of the Elves’?

Disney's King of the Elves

Back in April 2008, Disney announced their schedule of titles through 2012 for new animated features and King of the Elves, which is based on a fantasy short story by Philip K. Dick, was included on that list. At that time, the only details was a brief synopsis of the film, which centers on an ordinary elderly man who reluctantly becomes the leader of a band of elves attempting to escape from an evil troll. But early last month, I noticed that the Disney Animation site had added King of the Elves to their “Projects” area, along with a very Lord of the Rings-like title treatment (see it here at top).

Now, /Film noticed that the CG-animated film, which is slated for a Christmas 2012 release in Disney Digital 3D, has been taken down from the upcoming Projects area (though the film-specific page is still on the site, you just can’t navigate to it anymore).

Video: The Muppets Sing ’12 Days Of Christmas’ With Jimmy Fallon

The Muppets on Jimmy FallonRemember back in September when we told you about the Muppets and their future plans for re-taking over the world (Read: It’s Not Meat, It’s Not Puppets … It’s The Muppets & They’re Coming Back Big!)? Well, they’re still going to do all of that! But as we also said, they never really left us either; those lovable Muppets love to make random TV appearances.

One of these appearances was last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, where the Muppet gang joined Jimmy in singing the “12 Days of Christmas” along with The Roots. Yes, you read that correctly: The Muppets. Jimmy Fallon. “12 Days of Christmas.” The Roots. Wacky, huh? The song is typically known as one of the arduous variety, but with a little Muppet action, the simple nature of Fozzie Bear, and an appearance by Animal, this is one of the better renditions you’ll check out.

As always, click on over to the other side to check out the video, and a very Happy Holidays to all of you wonderful readers we have!

See Bruce Willis & Tracy Morgan In The Trailer For Kevin Smith’s ‘Cop Out’

Cop Out

The brand new first teaser trailer for Kevin Smith‘s Cop Out has been officially released on Apple (head there for HD!). The movie is one with an interesting bunch of sub-plots that have nothing to do with the actual film. For starters: the movie was known for a long time as A Couple of Dicks; a title most people enjoyed, but which Warner Brothers dubbed too edgy, and had changed to the rather fitting Cop Out. Secondly: this is the first movie that Smith did not write and produce as well. He was hired to simply direct the film, and that is all. Even though this took Smith away from his normal comfortable world, the hope is that with stars like Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan playing off of each other, a comedy success can be achieved.

I’m a big Kevin Smith fan and haven’t met a movie of his that I didn’t love yet…not one. And while we don’t yet know if Cop Out will end up playing really well or very badly, I must say it: you can definitely tell this flick wasn’t written by Smith just by viewing the trailer. Whether you love him like I do or despise his work, the Clerks, Dogma, and Zack and Miri Make a Porno writer/director/producer is known for his writing skills and tremendous attention to dialogue quality. That relentless and witty dialogue would appear to be completely vacant here, and that would be my first concern.

DVD Review: Vampire Killers

Vampire Killers DVDVampire Killers
Directed by Phil Claydon
Starring Mathew Horne, James Corden, MyAnna Buring, Paul McGann, Silvia Colloca
Weinstein Company
Release date: December 29, 2009

Hundreds of years ago vampires descended on the small hamlet of Cragwich. The Head Vampire, Carmilla (Silvia Colloca), placed a curse on Cragwich so that all its women-folk would turn into vampires (more than that, lesbian vampires) on their 18th birthday. Holidaying friends Jimmy (Mathew Horne) and Fletch (James Corden) have entered a world of trouble. And babes.

I will not even try and pretend that I had any kind of creative or cultural curiosities about this movie going in to it; it’s about sexy vampires. However, I can claim that it featured one of my favourite comedy duos of recent years. Here in the UK, Mathew Horne (The Catherine Tate Show) and James Corden (History Boys and the upcoming Gulliver’s Travels) have just wrapped up the hugely popular — and very funny — but sadly short lived sitcom, Gavin and Stacey. Horne stars as Gavin, a sensible, softly spoken, hopeless romantic who lives with his parents. Corden (who also serves as co-writer) backs him up as his overweight but always eating, loyal, fun best friend, Smithy, the real star of the show. Horne is straight-laced, cautious, dependable. Corden is loud, carefree and crude. This buddy act they continued in their sketch comedy show, Horne and Corden, and they reprise those roles again in British comedy horror, Vampire Killers.
