For the first time in a while, there is not a new release we can recommend this week in wide release. Take the time to catch up on some good movies on Netflix or DVD, but stay away from Saw 3D whatever you do.
To tide you over here is the trailer for something that actually looks good. The upcoming Skyline.

The A-Team DVD Review
They were a foursome revered by high school kids. Hannibal Smith, B.A. Baracus, Murdock and Face - and everyone had a favorite. Memorably, someone had to pick Mr. T, the actor behind Baracus, and everyone identified, or was given, a character that fitted. The new batch of actors playing these now old hats has shoes to fill, indeed, except if you’re fifteen and don’t have a clue who Mr. T is.
Bradley Copper as Face, for reasons which have everything to do with his acting ability, is squared off with an agent who used to be his girlfriend (Jessica Biel), but I wondered where he got the time between tours of duties. Her antagonism towards him makes for the first sign of tangible conflict and that after a lengthy opening…moreNote: Cross posted from nutzworld.com.

Peter’s Preview October 22, 2010

It’ll be of interest to see how Clint Eastwood directs a supernatural thriller, Hereafter, after Gran Torino. Matt Damon stars after this year’s Oscar nomination for supporting actor in Invictus, also directed by Clint. The director keeps on going. It’s been a phenomenal decade. Since 2003, he’s made Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, Flags of Our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima, Changeling, Gran Torino and Invictus. All impress with distinctive character, like rich wine taken moderately after years in the cellar. Savor the taste.
This week's pick in the wide releases is Hereafter Hereafter is some of Clint Eastwoods best directorial work, plodding and slow at times, but in the end the exploration of the afterlife is as comforting as it is unsettling.
Last Weeks Pick: RED. may not be the best movie we have seen all year, but it is the most fun we have had at the theater this year.Note: Cross posted from nutzworld.com.
This is a classic that still ranks among the most shared videos on the net. The absolutely fabulous David Hasselhoff with the absolutely fabulous Hooked on a Feeling video. If you have missed this, it is a must see. Germany is absolutely in love with the Hoff, Germans are weird by the way.Note: Cross posted from nutzworld.com.
The album from which this single is derived (Kill City (Remastered) ) was originally released in 1977. Took me awhile to finally get around to landing down a copy of this CD, which I assumed it was Iggy's very first solo record. Guess it's actually a collaboration between Iggy and former Stooges guitarist James Williamson. Was definitely worth the wait. Tracks I thought made the grade were the *ss-kicking title cut "Kill City", "I Got Nothin'", the classic "Johanna", "Consolation Prizes" and "Lucky Monkeys". Line-up: Iggy-vocals, James Williamson-guitar, Scott Thurston-bass, keyboards & harmonica and Brian Glascock (Motels)-drums. A should-have.nutzworld.com.
The next time audiences see Robert Downey Jr. portray Tony Stark/Iron Man, he'll be sharing the spotlight with a rabble crew of superheroes in "The Avengers" (in theaters May 4, 2012). But let's face it, Stark has never been one for sharing the spotlight. He needs his own movie. Luckily, RDJ and his big-screen alter-ego(s) are getting just that: "Iron Man 3" has been given an official release date of May 3, 2013.

This week's pick in the wide releases is RED. RED may not be the best movie we have seen all year, but it is the most fun we have had at the theater this year. Also in wide release is the very good, but very Lifetime movie of the week like Conviction and then there is also Jackass 3D which we really wont even comment on.Note: Cross posted from nutzworld.com.
This is an amazing chance to complete your Stargate collection with all seasons available at this fantastic price.
The story of Stargate SG-1 begins two years after the events of the feature film. A network of ancient alien devices called Stargates connects a vast multitude of planets within our Milky Way galaxy for interstellar travel. Later episodes reveal that this network is capable of spanning not just planets within the Milky Way, but with sufficient power, can provide intergalactic travel as well. Stargate SG-1 chronicles the adventures of SG-1, the flagship team of over two dozen teams from Earth who explore the galaxy and defend Earth against alien threats such as the Goa'uld, Replicators and later the Ori. The composition of the SG-1 team is stable in the show's first five seasons but changes several times in the remaining seasons. The series expands upon many Ancient Earth mythologies such as Egyptian mythology, Norse mythology, and Arthurian legend.
A must have for the serious sci-fi fan.nutzworld.com.
The folks at Improv Everywhere used 3,000 participants for their latest mission. Each had an MP3 player that received simultaneous instructions (and music). That had to appear really strange to anyone not in on the plan! It all culminated in a flashmob at Bryant Park.
Flashmobs are fun!Note: Cross posted from nutzworld.com.

The storyline of Modern Warfare 2 picks up where the events of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare left off. The ultranationalist Russian leader Zakhaev has been eliminated, but it seems that his lieutenant, Vladimir Makarov, is an even bigger danger. Having made a successful play for power, Intel indicates that he is extending the reach of his influence well beyond the borders of Mother Russia, causing a stir in the international community and prompting the involvement of Task Force 141. Task Force 141 is an elite multinational unit made up of Navy Seals, Delta Force operatives, British SAS and CIA. In the single player campaign you are Sergeant Gary "Roach" Sanderson, with the hero of Call of Duty 4, "Soap" MacTavish, promoted to Captain, making an appearance as an NPC (non-player character) and your commanding officer. The elimination of Makarov and his underlings at any cost is your number one priority, regardless where the fight occurs.
The latest release in arguably the most successful tactical first-person shooter franchise of all-time, gameplay in Modern Warfare 2 follows the same winning and time-tested structure of earlier games in the series. In the single player campaign players are aided by AI squad members as they take on a series of missions aimed at eliminating Ultranationalist forces. Each mission is built around a particular objective, with players utilizing some level of guidance from NPC characters, including "Soap" MacTavish, and aided in navigation by the game's heads up display (HUD). Along the way players will be able to utilize a wide variety of weaponry and and vehicles, as well as be able to customize weapons with gadgets attached to them.
Also, just as in previous games in the series, Modern Warfare 2 is heavily focused on multiplayer gameplay. The different multiplayer modes, available both in local play and online, contain plenty of customization options and revolve around different strategies ranging from the every man for himself action of "Free-for All," the classic team-based fun of "Capture the Flag and the tactical, team-oriented action of "Search and Destroy," just to name a few. Multiplayer modes also feature the "Perk" System that players may be familiar with from earlier in the franchise. Through this system players gain additional abilities, weapons and benefits as they gain experience in combat. This can be done by leveling up, but another important way way is through "kill streaks," the number of enemies eliminated in succession. These are available beginning with three kills and include the ability to call for supply drops, predator missile strikes, helicopter gunships and many more. Players have the ability to customize in advance which perks will be available at each number and can even gauge their progress towards each at the touch of a button. With an eye towards not making the game too hard for new players the game also features help to players experiencing "death streaks," multiple consecutive deaths in multiplayer matches.
Special Ops Co-op Mode
Along with a single player mode and multiple multiplayer modes, Modern Warfare 2 also features an unique third main play option, Special Ops Mode. Available both online and in local play, Special Ops Mode is designed to provide a distinct time-based play option, featuring special scenarios not found in other modes in the game and lots of enemies to take on. This mode can be played either alone or with a friend, again either locally or online, with local co-op play including split-screen functionality.
Key Game Features
Today’s free mp3 is Suzanne Vega’s new song Tom’s Diner off of her Close-Up, Vol 2, , People and Places (Deluxe Edition) album. Most remakes are decent at best, this one is great. If you don't own this song, it is extremely insightful, mind provoking, thought provoking even. I highly recommend both the artist and the song to everyone.nutzworld.com.
This week's pick in the wide releases is Secretariat (2010) Disney's latest far outpaces subpar horror My Soul to Take and yet another bland Duhamel and Heigl romantic comedy in Life as We Know It.

Washing Of The Water is one of the best free songs in a while, Gabriel shows that he hasn't lost his ballad mojo as he excels at expressing passion and depth. This arrangement is absolutely gorgeous. Peter Gabriel's voice is lush and expressive, and the simple strings, piano lines, and winds that run throughout add a poignant and absolutely beautiful backdrop. Snap it up while it's free.EntertainmentNutz.
In Zuckerberg, everything's coming up Mark! Girls love him, his enemies admit that they're stupid and that their lawsuits against him are fraudulent, and he takes personal phone calls from the president. Oh, and he's also basically James Bond.
The real-life Zuckerberg says he has no plans to see The Social Network but he'd probably change his mind if Babelgum's parody were the real trailer.Note: Cross posted from nutzworld.com.
