Sometimes you just can't find something to blog about cause every story out there is as dull as a butter knife. Welcome to this morning. We still haven't found anything super great, but in lieu of something...
The "Juno" DVD features the "Juno-cabulary," basically a compendium of all the cringe-worthy parts of the movie with the hip, teen-lingo in the film that made you want to walk out of the theater in the first 15 minutes (of course lots of it is delivered by the insufferably unfunny Rainn Wilson.

Yoko Ono has apparently licensed the John Lennon song "Imagine" to the what the Huffington Post calls the 'creationist propaganda' film, "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed," (starring Ben Stein, a big creationist/ "intelligent design" advocate in recent years). The Killers' "All These Things That I've Done" has also been sold to the film. The film's blog synopsis is a little different (naturally and hilariously):

“Expelled” calls attention to the plight of highly credentialed scholars who have been forced out of prestigious academic positions because they proposed Intelligent Design as a possible alternative to Charles Darwin’s 150-year-old theories about the origins of life.

A shitload (90%) of New Line's staff got axed in the Time Warner merger. Sucks for them and we mean that with empathy. [Variety]
We saw "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," last night and we really enjoyed it, surprisingly. A full-length review is upcoming. For the no people that care, we probably won't bother with a review of "Stop-Loss" at this point (a little late now), but we'd probably grade it a [B] and it's still better than most things out there. Oh, we saw, "Smart People," too which is amusing, but slight and ephemeral, but Thomas Hayden Church was strangely the best part of the film and we normally hate him. [B-]
The OnionTV made an amusing spoof of the upcoming Jon Favreau directed "Iron Man" film titled, "Popular 'Iron Man' Trailer to Become Full-Length Film," which pretty much speaks for itself. It's pretty funny and takes lots of great shots at the fans of comic-book films.
