So if you haven't heard by now Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner is currently going through a scandal of shall we say tweet length proportions. Rep. Weiner sent a picture of well...his weiner, to a female that isn't his wife, over twitter. 

This of course is drawing a ton of fire from the right, and having the left avoid him, despite this the once rising liberal star is no stepping down. 

What're your thoughts?

Ultra Movie Review Bonanza!

I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell (2009) 

This raunchy comedy centers around 3 friends and a bachelor party (sounds like a formula in Hollywood nowadays). Lots of funny scenes, some not so funny ones. Lots of nudity and gorgeous women, however I found the main character, Tucker, to be unconnectable. There was some laugh out loud hilarious spots in the movie. 

Score: 6.7-7.0/10

Extract (2009) 

The next movie in this mega review of sorts is Mike Judge's Extract. This movie has some high power hollywood performers (Jason Bateman, Mila Kunis, Ben Affleck) and they do not disappoint. A comedy reminiscent of Judge's Office Space this movie is hilarious. Bateman and Affleck have great report throughout the film and help make the film what it is. 

Score: 7.6-8.0/10 

Hellboy (2004)

This delightful sci-fi/action flick features the exploits of the love-able demon Hellboy. Lots of fun action and even some romance, with some humor thrown in. Don't pass on this movie as another one of just many in this genre. 

Overall: 7.8-8.2/10

Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008)

This is one of the rare occasions where the sequel lives up to, if not exceeds the original in quality. Another set of good performances by the whole cast, and another good storyline for the movie. May have been overlooked a little, but it's box office numbers don't suggest that. 

Score: 7.8-8.2/10

He Was A Quiet Man (2007) 

This hardly known independent film was absolutely stunning, and will keep you twisted about what is really going on until the last minute. Both Christian Slater and Elisha Cuthbert turn in amazing performances (and you get an amazing view of Cuthbert's breasts ;) ) in this film that will leave you thinking at the end.

Score: 8.5-8.7/10 

Frost/Nixon (2008) 

This highly touted film from Ron Howard about the famous interviews of Former President Nixon by David Frost in 1977 is quite compelling. Although I don't agree with some of the critics with it's talks of best picture, it was rather good and the performances were stunning throughout.

Score: 8.5-8.8/10

Stanley Cup Final Game 1 Analysis And Other News

Well folks we had a great game today. Game 1 in Vancouver was a great contest, a real old time duel between netminders. Time Thomas and Roberto Luongo battled all game, not allowing any goals until 18.5 seconds left in the 3rd period. Thomas came out slightly too far and the 'Nucks were able to slip one by to get the 1-0 winner to take a 1-0 lead in the series.

The Bruins looked very slow in the 3rd period. While both teams were gased watching the game it really seamed like the B's were exhausted, maybe a sign of the long ECF battle against the Bolts, either way they still were near perfect. The series started very physical like most Cup Finals, which helped the B's slightly. The series should shape up to be a good one in the B's can steal a game in Vancouver.

Atlanta Thrashers To Move To Winnipeg Manitoba, And Other Sports News

It's official folks! The Atlanta Thrashers are moving to Winnipeg, Manitoba (that's Canada). The NHL will return to Winnipeg after a 15 season absence. The move was expected to happen for a couple weeks now as local ownership options in Atlanta fell through and True North stepped up and purchased the team. A lot of questions remain such as: What will the team name be? What division will they play in?  What happens to the current AHL tenet in Winnipeg? Among all the questions though is celebration and hope. The people of Winnipeg (and Manitoba in general) deserve an NHL team, and this brings hope to old NHL towns such as Quebec City and Hartford. I'm firmly on board with this move, and future ones of southern teams north. More on this subject to come. 

Huge News out of Columbus, Ohio today, Head Coach Jim Tressel has stepped down. Amid all the current controversy surrounding the Ohio State football program coach Tressel has stepped down. Already suspended for the first 5 games along with some prominent players, Ohio State now looks like it's in even more trouble heading into this season.
