Totally Unnecessary

If there’s one movie that is not in need of a remake, it is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s magnum opus Commando.  Unfortunately, that’s what Fox wants to do according to this post at JoBlo.  Seriously, in what way can a remake improve what is already a flawless film?  And who would play Bennett???

Worth Watching: Party Down

I was unaware of the existence of this comedy airing Fridays on Starz until I saw this thoughtful analysis from the Chicago Tribune’s TV critic Maureen Ryan.  That was reason enough for me to check it out, but I was happy to see the cast littered with familiar faces from Judd Apatow productions like Adam Scott, Martin Starr and Jane Lynch, not to mention Ken Marino (MTV’s The State).

Party Down follows a bunch of struggling actors/writers working for a catering company in Hollywood while searching for their big break.  Season 2 premieres April 23 and Starz was nice enough to stream four episodes on their web site.  It didn’t take long for me to get through those episodes.  I’m still feeling out the humor, but it has potential and will be interesting to see what great guest stars will show up next.  Of the free episodes on the Starz site, the one with Steve Guttenberg (!) was the most fun.

Broken Lizard out of nowhere

After taking police work and beer drinking to new levels of ridiculous, Broken Lizard’s latest film parodies the restaurant industry in The Slammin’ Salmon.  It hits DVD/Blu-Ray this week.  Will it surpass Super Troopers or Beerfest?  We’ll see.  However, you can be guaranteed to be repeating lines from this for a long time.
