I reviewed it here.
A couple of interesting geek movies came out this week.
Zombieland was a great movie. I reviewed it here.
Jennifer's Body was better than people gave it credit for.

Planet Hulk. I picked this up, but haven't finished it yet. What I have seen has been true to the original storyline. I will review it when I finish it. I actually am very interested to see if they set up the potential for World War Hulk at the end.
The Golden Raspberry Awards, frequently called the Razzies, is an award ceremony to recognize the worst in film. Founded by American copywriter and publicist John J.B. Wilson in 1981, the event precedes the corresponding Academy Award ceremony by one day. The awards themselves cost US $4.79 each, in the form of a "golfball-sized raspberry" which sits atop a Super 8 mm film reel; the whole of which is spray-painted gold.
I have heard people discussing the fact that Sandra Bullock may be the first person to ever be nominated for an Academy Award and a Razzie in the same year. What I found even more interesting is that fact that Jonas brothers were nominated for playing themselves. I also strongly believe that Halle Berry (who also has an Oscar and a Razzie) was robbed as Catwoman was clearly one of the worst movies of the decade. Perhaps they went easy on her since she actually picked her Razzie when she won for the film in 2005. She took the stage carrying her Monster’s Ball Oscar and said, “"I want to thank Warner Brothers for casting me in this piece of ****." She then dragged her agent on stage and warned him "next time read the script first."

Since he first appeared in Steam Boat Willie (or Plane Crazy if you count being drawn as opposed to being released), Mickey has captured our hearts. Now, the Disney Store wants you to open your hearts to celebrate "I Love Mickey Month" and have planned some fun free events for kids and some lower priced items for adults.

As ABC's Lost is about to kick off it's final season. You have an opportunity to bid for the chance to have lunch with Evangeline Lilly, who plays Kate on the hit television series. This unique opportunity is for a worthy cause--proceeds will support vital programs in Rwanda.
Of course if you can't afford this opportunity. You can still buy her underwear.
More after the jump.
