Photoshopped Target model flaunts her long arms on Ellen

Ellen wonders whose arms naturally fall like that...
A couple weeks ago, Target came under fire for photoshopping the heck out of a swimsuit model on its website. From the scariest-looking thigh gap ever to the pointy remains of her thinned out torso in her armpit, Target botched the job and tried to forget about it by taking the suit off their site.

Since then, Target has been mum about the situation, but this week, the model in question appeared on Ellen.

Coming to the big screen soon!
If movies like The Net and Hackers taught us anything, it's that hacking and cyber espionage make for a tense and exciting action flick. Add in credit-card data and internet security, and you might have a blockbuster on your hands.

With this in mind, the story of last December's Target breach may soon be heading to the big screen, as Hollywood Reporter recently announced that Sony has inked a deal to make a movie about it.

Martin Freeman shows off his Minnesotan accent in new Fargo trailer

Categories: Film and TV

fargoknit-banner560.jpg
The wait for the highly anticipated Fargo series, based off of the 1996 Coen brothers' movie, is almost over. Slated to join FX's lineup of shows this spring, Fargo takes place in the original world that the Coens created, but there's a whole new motley crew dealing with conspiracies, murder, and -- duh -- way too much snow.

Starring Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Oliver Platt, Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, and Adam Goldberg among others, the show's a who's-who of Hollywood characters who look like they're right at home as part of the town. And while the Coen brothers are only attached to the project as executive producers, their distinctive style shines through in this small screen adaptation of their wickedly twisted vision of the Midwest.

If the string of teaser trailers for the new FX series are accurate, there are going to be a hell of a lot of dead bodies to shuffle around the frozen Fargo tundra. We took a look at some of our favorites in anticipation of the show's April 14 premiere.

Nymphomaniac: Volume I

On this week's Voice Film Club podcast, We're split on Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac: Volume I, but laughed throughout the the latest Muppets movie. The Veronica Mars movie is worth your money, and so is The Great Invisible, a revealing doc about the BP oil spill, which was named the top doc at SXSW. We recommend Jodorowksy's Dune, The Missing Picture and those Say Yes to the Dress episodes on Netflix.

This Sunday night is Hollywood's biggest and most glamorous pole dance, the Academy Awards. There will be awkward red-carpet interviews, tiny jewels worth more than your yearly income, kinda-sorta funny (but not really) send-ups, and a Death Montage guaranteed to be very depressing.

Once again, we've put together a drinking game sure to spice things up between the boring speeches, the commercial breaks, and the long wait for the big wins. Looking to party in public? We have two recommended shindigs at the end of our list.

Is the new Jesus movie Son of God Tea Party propaganda?

Categories: Film and TV

HEY-GIRL-JESUS.jpg
By Alan Scherstuhl
That Bible miniseries, originally aired on the History Channel, won notoriety by casting an actor who resembles Barack Obama in the crowd-pleasing role of Satan. The producers -- Roma Downey, who plays Mary here, and Mark Burnett, who pioneered the watch-skinny-people-suffer genre with Survivor -- insisted that this was a coincidence, despite the fact that they had aggressively targeted the series to the likes of Glenn Beck. America, then, is wondering: Does this theatrical sequel feed more chum to the Tea Party? Or is it, as a product of what Tea Partiers insist is a liberal Hollywood, chock-full of liberal propaganda? Both sides may have a case.
