When Product Placement Attacks!

I'm actually pretty amused by this example

I know it's a necessary evil. I realize that corporate sponsorship helps foot some of the bills on a film production budget. I understand that many people actually use the products advertised on a daily basis, but I also hate it when product placement in movies is blatantly obvious. I should be able to just let it go..............laugh it off...........learn to accept it. But I can't always do that. There are instances where it works tremendously, but far too often, I just get distracted by shameless product plugs. Here's a few examples that really annoy me followed by one that I accept and love wholeheartedly. Stay tuned and I'll be back after these important messages!

R.I.P. Amy & Forever 27 on Film

I admit to never really knowing her music well other than her famous "Rehab" song, but I appreciated the true talent that belonged to Amy Winehouse. She sadly couldn't get her demons in check and joins the "Forever 27" club alongside other music legends who left us all too soon. Hollywood has often tried to pay tribute to.....or cash in..... on the stars who burned brightly but shortly in the entertainment world with varying degrees of success.  Here are three notable attempts to give us a glimpse of life and death in the "Forever 27" club.

Warner Bros, New Line, Capital One Bank Seal Hobbit Marketing Deal.

Hot on the heels of the cast reveal and subsequent photo shoot in a giant gray room, Warner Bros. and New Line have excitedly announced a brand-new marketing campaign that will be launched alongside The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey when it releases next year. The cast and crew will partner with Capital One Bank to produce a series of television commercials within the next 6 months. 3-D was being discussed, but as of the time of this writing, nothing was decided for sure. I, for one, can't wait to hear Frodo ask, "What's in YOUR wallet?"

Captain America Punches Hitler In Epic Comic-Con Cosplay Throwdown!

It was pandemonium at the San diego Comic-Con as two cosplay titans duked it out for geek supremacy. Phil Cornbottom AKA Captain America took offense when a fellow cosplayer showed up at the popular convention dressed as Hitler. The security team at the convention center immediately stepped in to halt the melee and escort them off the grounds, but were so moved by Captain America's patriotic stand against the Third Reich, they decided to let the combatants settle it mano-a-mano.

Best Dialogue Ever: Conan The Barbarian 1982

As far as Conan goes, there can be only one for me........Ahnold. Sure I'll check out the newest incarnation and hope that it reaches the awe inspiring heights of the 1982 John Milius classic, but nobody.........and I mean nobody will ever "burn you the way to paradise" the way Mr. Universe did. Now getting that out of the way I can present to you the newest series of posts on GPS "Best Dialogue Ever." I have to start with's the reason we're named Green People Soup. (fans of the film think about that if you want to know) Arnold didn't say much in the movie, but when he did, you had to be prepared to pay attention lest ye be eviscerated by his cold steel. Here he talks about what is best in life........listen closely or Crom will cast you out of Valhalla.

Netflix User Resorts To Prostitution As Price Hike Outrage Continues

Outrage towards the online rental giant continues as a Denver area man recently took extreme measures to pay for the upcoming price hike. When Roger Bobblecock heard that his current plan of one DVD out and unlimited streaming was being split and charged separately, the middle manager and father of three knew the situation had become dire. Roger's wife joked that they were going to have to turn tricks downtown to pay the increase, but it was no laughing matter when she actually had to bail him out of jail after being arrested for soliciting himself.

Harrison Ford: Lucas Is A F***ing Idiot

Upon hearing the news that George Lucas was digitally recasting the role of Han Solo made famous by Harrison Ford for the upcoming "Extra Extra Special Editions" of the original "Star Wars" trilogy, the 69 year old actor was not pleased. "He's a fucking idiot," said the grumpy Ford.  Asking what he thought about his replacement drew even more vitriol from the veteran thespian. "Twilight sucks and Pattinson is a no talent ass clown!" It's clear the cast of the original trilogy is not happy with their life's work being tampered with by the bearded one. GPS had the exclusive first look at the "Extra Extra Special Editions" right here

On Location: Dirty Harry

When my wife wanted to take a trip to San Francisco, there were only two things on my mind. The first was seeing Alcatraz, and the second seeing some of the famous Dirty Harry film locations. As a movie junkie, how do you not visit a few locales where Harry battled Scorpio by the bay?

Happy Birthday Geoffrey Rush!

For 43 more minutes, it will still be Geoffrey Rush's birthday. I really need to get better at checking birthdays BEFORE 11:30 at night. I'll get better as I get more accustomed to wishing people I'll never meet a long life, etc. Anyways, Rush turned 60 today, so let's make with the remembrance and such!

Currently Obsessed With: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

I don't know how many of you like musicals, but there actually are some good ones out there. You just have to do a little searching. A friend mentioned Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog to me, and being a Joss Whedon fan, I had to check it out. The plot is pretty simple; Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris) is trying to get into the Evil League of Evil, but his arch-nemesis, Captain Hammer (Nathon Fillion) always foils his amazingly Evil plans. Complicating matters is the fact that Captain Hammer starts dating Penny, whom Dr. Horrible has a total crush on. The title comes from the fact that Dr. Horrible has a video blog where he's usually either complaining about being foiled by Captain Hammer, or making his maniacal plans known to everyone who's computer-capable.
