Weekly link roundup – July 2-8

NEW MOVIE REVIEWS:

“Horrible Bosses” (B+) [Film.com]
“Zookeeper” (D+)
“Terri” (C+)

* * * * *

MOVIE COLUMNS:

Eric’s Bad Movies: “Furry Vengeance” (2010). One of the benefits of not reviewing something terrible when it comes out is that I can go back to it later for Bad Movies. In honor of “Zookeeper,” here it is. [Film.com]

What’s the Big Deal?: “The Gold Rush” (1925). Charlie Chaplin’s classic. Maybe the quintessential Chaplin movie? [Film.com]

Re-Views: “Freddy Got Fingered” (2001). As a comedy nerd, I enjoyed analyzing what Tom Green was trying to do here. I didn’t enjoy the film, but at least I enjoyed nerding about it. [Film.com]

MY OTHER STUFF:

Snide Remarks: None this week, because of the Independence Fourth of July Day holiday.

Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider: Reviews of “Horrible Bosses” and “Zookeeper,” listeners’ (and our own) horrible boss stories, an update on the box office game, and a solid round of Pitch Me. [Cascadia.fm] or [iTunes]

MISCELLANEOUS MERRIMENT:

Toto’s “Africa,” by Ernest Hemingway. [McSweeney's]

Something about this is creepy. An ad for “Zookeeper” was digitally inserted into a four-year-old rerun of “How I Met Your Mother.” [Consumerist]

“Crabwalkin’”: A five-second film starring Patton Oswalt. [Filmdrunk]

Peter Hall, who I know for a fact is a big ol’ nerd, doesn’t like “Lord of the Rings.” Here he explains himself. [Hollywood.com]

A visual comparison of “30 Rock” and “Arrested Development.” [No idea where it originated.]

What if the characters from “Toy Story” starred in “The Shining”? [Kyle Lambert]

I laughed aloud at several of these: “Yo mama” jokes in the Harry Potter universe. [No idea.]

Speaking of which, here’s a parody of a “Hairspray” song, “Good Morning Voldemort.” [YouTube]
