Sheen 'Feels Awful', Says Pal

31 December 2009 4:16 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

A friend of Charlie Sheen has spoken of the actor's devastation over his alleged aggressive behaviour towards wife Brooke Mueller on Christmas Day - insisting the actor "feels awful" about the incident.

The Two and A Half Men star was arrested last Friday after a domestic dispute with Mueller ended when Sheen allegedly threatened his partner with a knife.

He was released from police custody the same day and is set to appear in court on 8 February to face charges of second-degree assault, menacing and criminal mischief.

And following attempts from Mueller's legal team to dismiss a protection order preventing the pair from contacting each other, a pal of the actor has spoken out about how Sheen is struggling to cope with the aftermath of his outburst.

The friend tells, "Charlie feels awful. He let himself down by drinking... (And) he wants to be with his kids. (Charlie) has two little boys and he does not want to get divorced again."

But the unnamed acquaintance dismisses the importance of the knife allegedly used to threaten Mueller in the assault - insisting Sheen always carries a sentimental penknife given to him by his father, Martin Sheen.

The insider adds, "Did he have a knife with him? Yes. It's a pocketknife that his dad gave him 22 years ago, which he always carries. It's not like he got a kitchen knife and went after her." »

Charlie Sheen, the highest-paid television actor in America, spent Christmas Day behind bars after his wife made an emergency, early-morning phone call to the police complaining that she had been assaulted.

Friendly Judge Frees Charlie Sheen Hours After Wife Assault

25 December 2009 8:45 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Actor Charlie Sheen, who was arrested early Christmas day in Aspen for allegedly assaulting wife Brooke Mueller, is back on the street, after spending only a few only hours in jail — thanks to a friendly judge. Police spokeswoman Stephanie Dasaro said Sheen was able to post $8,500 bond and was freed. Earlier reports said he would be held in jail without bond until he could go before a county judge. Under normal circumstances, that would have been on Monday (Dec. 28). But Sheen’s well-known Colo. lawyer, Richard Cummins, was able to round up a judge to hear the matter immediately. Sheen is the son of actor Martin Sheen and brother of actor-director Emilio Estevez. He was previously married to actress/model Denise Richards. »

Cinematic Trailer for Mass Effect 2

23 December 2009 9:58 PM, PST | GameRant | See recent GameRant news »

The latest trailer for Mass Effect 2 was released recently and it is simply astounding. It’s easy to see new possible playing styles within the game and all of the hallmarks that make the Mass Effect universe a superior video game environment. At the beginning of the trailer, you can see in Commander Shepard’s eyes that this mission is of the utmost importance and one he may not be coming back from.

Check out the new cinematic Mass Effect 2 trailer after the jump.


Watch and enjoy courtesy of Kotaku:

I am still so impressed and happy that Martin Sheen is voicing the mysterious overseer. He appears to be human but his glowing blue eyes might suggest otherwise. It’s possible that he is the leader of the Cerberus group that was hinted at in the first game and Shepard will be working with him. According to the Mass Effect 2 website, »

"Stand and deliver, sir!" Dennis Hopper in Philippe Mora's Mad Dog Morgan.

Philippe Mora: Ballad Of A Mad Dog


Alex Simon

Born in Paris in 1949, Philippe Mora is a member of one of Australia’s best known artistic families. His parents, Georges Mora and Mirka Mora, migrated to Australia from France in 1951 and settled in Melbourne, where they quickly became key figures on the Melbourne cultural scene. Georges, a wartime resistance fighter, became an influential art dealer, and in 1967 he founded one of the first commercial art galleries in Melbourne, Tolarno Galleries. The Mora family home and restaurants were focal points of Melbourne's bohemian subculture. As a result of this, Philippe and his brothers had what he has described as a "culturally privileged childhood."

Philippe moved to London in late 1967 to pursue painting and filmmaking. He was one of many important Australian artists, writers and others who »

My ten years as a TV critic by Kathryn Flett | Feature

19 December 2009 4:40 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

For 10 years, Kathryn Flett held her dream job: watching the box… and being paid for it, too. Now she has written her last dispatch from the sofa. Here she presses the rewind button…

I didn't plan it this way, honest, but the very last word of the final sentence of the review that turned out to be my last as the Observer's TV critic was "Cowell", and as he currently occupies a metaphorical throne at the centre of primetime TV (though technically, of course, Simon is always on the far right of the screen, next to Cheryl) it feels as though the c-word is a fitting pay-off after frittering away 10 years of my life in front of the telly.

But indulge me while I rewind to the summer of 1999, not only a previous century and a technological aeon ago (when I used to watch the bulk of TV programmes on Vcr, »

Best of the Decade #9: The Departed (2006)

17 December 2009 10:13 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

As Sean alluded to in another post, I seem to have had a big impact on this list. After I suggested that this film belonged on the list to the other members of Film Junk, it was thrown into the mix. We voted and presto-change-o it's our number 9 on our Best of the Decade list. Yes, The Departed. Based on the Hong Kong classic Infernal Affairs, The Departed has a killer concept. Matt Damon plays Colin, a police officer in the state of Massachusetts who is actually a mole for Boston crime boss Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson). As Colin rises through the ranks of the police force, he tips Frank off along the way and keeps his real boss out of the hands of the law. Colin, however, isn't the only rat. The police have their own mole in Frank's crew: Billy, played by director Martin Scorsese's favourite son, »

John’s Top Eleven Films of the Decade

6 December 2009 3:47 PM, PST | | See recent Reel Loop news »

I was just under 11 years old as we entered the 2000s, and in the last decade I have made it my mission to fill the space in my mind that should be reserved for academics to remembering the details of far too many films. In looking back upon this decade, it seems that we’ve had quite a good chunk of time for movies — there are only two years absent on my top ten list: 2000 and 2005, while 2006 is represented by three films. I still cheated, though, by extending my list to eleven entries. Some were just too good to decide between.

I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it. And before you start — don’t cry. The Dark Knight isn’t on here.

11. The Royal Tenenbaums – 2001
