... vs the BP Oil Rig.

Having never seen Karate Kid (either one) and being a fan of American superhero comics, I found this post very confusing.

So is that Arcade Fire song now the indie dramedy equivalent of putting George Thorogood's "Bad to the Bone" in every movie trailer about a baby wearing sunglasses, a talking dog or a scrappy precocious 10-year-old whose father is played by the guy from Home Improvement?

He's 48?! Did he suck the life force from Dick Clark or something?

Yes, I believe so. Which is not a criticism of this trailer - since it was satire (I think, and not an actual movie? Unless I'm wrong?) then it gets points for, you know, realizing the song had achieved this status.

I kinda liked the new one. I've been a Jacky Chan fan in my youth and liked his role in this film, finally anpart where he could act his age.

But was anyone else made uncomfortable by the preteen romance subplot? That
whole thing just made me
really uncomfortable.

No, more like the new "Solisbury Hill."

As someone who teaches sixth graders, believe me, they're having romances. And they kiss.

As someone who WAS a sixth grader, once, I kissed Philip Price, right after he showed me the scab on his knee. It was moving. Then the rest of the sixth grade came careening around the corner of the building, shouting and taunting. I still bear the emotional scars.

The cuddle at the end made the whole trailer for me, though.

The only thing that would make this more perfect would be if they'd made a "My Cousin Vinny" reference.

Every 100 years, they hold a lottery, and the winner gets to be immortal.

Ryan Seacrest is the most recent victor.

The look of disappointment on Phyllis Fierro's face when Ralph admits to never sleeping with anyone except her is fantastic.

I've heard that if the writers of Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle had been unable to get Neil Patrick Harris, Ralph Macchio was their second choice.

I can't watch this here, but RM was on CBC Radio last night talking about this. It was awesome to hear him say "I just want to photograph you giving me a handjob, ok?" on public radio.

I dunno, man. She's got a regular gig on Secret Life of the American Teenager which retroactively makes her an evil mutant devilspawn.

Then again, Mr Macchio had a recurring on Ugly Betty (He got dumped by Betty's sister for a tough guy - poor dude just can't catch a break).
