Hooked on a feeling

Guardians of the Galaxy has always been described as Marvel’s biggest risk to date, which is really saying something when you consider they bet their studio’s future against Iron Man’s success back when RDJ was still uninsurable. But making what amounts to the Marvel version of Spaceballs trumps even that risk, which means there are a lot of nerves from a lot of different directions surrounding Guardians. Full Story

A gift for Chinese New Year from Vin Diesel

Sasha sent this to me with the question: Should we invite Vin Diesel to join our hip hop dance crew? I need you to watch this for me. The whole thing. I need you to watch this for yourself. It’s a video that Vin Diesel uploaded to his Facebook. There are so many questions. Like: As Sasha asked – why would any human being post this for any other human being to see? And me – especially a famous one!? Also: Does he think he’s the sh-t? Or is he just goofing? Why is there so much tongue? Who’s supposed to be wanting his tongue? Why doesn’t he know the words? Don’t you think he should know the words? What is he thinking about when he goes into the corner and puts his hands in his pocket? Do you actually know anyone who’s seen Riddick? Does he have any friends? I can’t do anything else today. Full Story

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association held a luncheon yesterday in Beverly Hills. You remember what Amy and Tina said of the HFPA at the Golden Globes? “There is no known cure for the Hollywood Foreign Press.” I just watched their opening monologue again. God that James Cameron joke still lands even after at least a dozen viewings. Full Story

Remember when I wrote about Vin Diesel maybe making something happen at Marvel, and I was like, Ugh, please just let him be the space tree that barely speaks? Well guess what? He’s the tree. Diesel, after weeks of buildup via Facebook and some pretty blatant campaigning, is in talks to portray Groot, the sort-of talking space tree in Guardians of the Galaxy. Full Story

My Marvel/Vin Diesel nightmare

Sarah Posted by Sarah at July 10, 2013 18:57:14 July 10, 2013 18:57:14

I cannot stand Vin Diesel. CANNOT. STAND. I don’t have a good reason for it. (Lainey: I have several.) It’s just an irrational hatred that sprang from sitting through one too many of his terrible movies. I love bad action movies, and have an unusually high tolerance for the special brand of sh*tty actor that often stars in them, but Diesel is a charisma black hole that destroys everything around him, including my will to live when I’m watching one of his movies. Full Story

Rock, Shrek, Paul

The Rock Dwayne Johnson has joined the Fast & Furious franchise. Here he is with Vin Diesel who I call Shrek because, obviously, and Paul Walker today in Moscow promoting the upcoming Fast Five which will make a stupid amount of money and that’ll be an excuse to make another one and…what else does Paul Walker do? The trailer is… ridiculous. Full Story

Vin Diesel: Sexiest Man Alive on Facebook

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 17, 2010 07:12:47 November 17, 2010 07:12:47

Well if that’s not a reason to quit Facebook... I don’t use Facebook. For various reasons, but mostly because it’s a time sucker. Today I am grateful for this, because I’ve now learned that Facebook users are the kind who voted Vin Diesel the Sexiest Man Alive. Really? Him? Shrek? He is Shrek. Full Story

Shrek & The Rock make a movie

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 14, 2010 08:20:40 July 14, 2010 08:20:40

There will be a fifth Fast & Furious movie. Yes, I agree. Oh lawd. But the People rushed the fourth one with the return of Shrek and Paul Walker. The People supported the franchise. And so the People are getting another. It will be called Fast Five. And Shrek and Walker this time will be joined by Dwayne The Rock Johnson who, apparently, is taking a break from family features. Full Story

Shrek Diesel DVD

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 17, 2009 07:11:44 July 17, 2009 07:11:44

Already? Didn’t seem like that took very long. Fast & Furious is now on DVD if you like that sort of thing – dumbasses not obeying the speed limit led by a grunting Shrek with big muscles also known as Vin Diesel. Ugh. He’s disgusting. Shrek showed up on the carpet last night because the event was also an opportunity to screen his short film Los Bandoleros. Full Story

Shrek drive fast car

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 13, 2009 07:22:58 March 13, 2009 07:22:58

Q: why do they keep making these movies?A: Paul Walker has no career otherwise. Same goes for Vin Diesel. Unless he wants to star in the live action version of Shrek. Because these are his only two options: 1. Driving fast and grunting or 2. Painting himself green and hanging out with Donkey. Q: why do they keep watching these movies???A: good taste is dead. Full Story

Vin Diesel on Broadway

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 14, 2008 08:12:18 August 14, 2008 08:12:18

Shrek the Musical opens in Seattle today, heading to Broadway in December. Here’s Shrek as he will appear on stage played by Brian d'Arcy James. Terrible casting. Was Vin Diesel unavailable? As I’ve been saying for years, Vin Diesel IS Shrek. And everyone else is a poseur, including Mike Myers. Full Story
