Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 1 - HitFix Picks
On Thursday (August 21) morning at 10 a.m. Et, Fxx is going to begin its Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, a showcase for 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." That's a lot of episodes and if you're a "Simpsons" neophyte, you may be intimidated by the sheer avalanche of yellow-tinged animation. Fortunately, we're here to help. The individual fans on Team HitFix are weighing in on one or two episodes per day until even we may collapse under the avalanche of comedic greatness. And, since we know that nobody can watch 48 episodes per day and remain sane, we'll also recommend an episode or two that you might be able to skip each day if you need to shower, take a quick nap or show love to members of your family. Check out our recommendations and chime in with your own favorites... Day One of the marathon begins with "Simpsons Roasting

All Aboard These 6 Kick-Ass 'Battleship' Clips

After proving he could do superheroes with "Hancock," director Peter Berg is getting all Michael Bay on us with a big ol' summer alien invasion disaster movie, based on a board game, called "Battleship."

Taylor Kitsch plays Lieutenant Alex Hopper, a U.S. Navy tactical action officer aboard the USS John Paul Jones, under the stern command of Admiral Shane (Liam Neeson). When their naval exercises uncover some hostile extraterrestrial forces, it'll take all the firepower they've got to sink those E.T.s but good.

1. When Zeus, a.k.a. Liam Neeson, recites Homer to you, it's gotta be bad news.

2. Taylor Kitsch can snag any girl he wants with the magic "I was John Carter" pick-up line.

3. Like they said in "Time Bandits": "Don't touch it, it's evil!"

4. Master Chief from "Halo" points a giant syringe at Kitsch.

5. All these panicky people need to take their cue

Everything is a Remix, Nothing is Original

When Jim Jarmusch published his poster-sized manifesto on the art of filmmaking, he borrowed his thesis from Jean-Luc Godard. It reinforced his point that nothing is original. But you don't have to be a fan of Ghost Dog or the French New Wave to know everything's derivative of something else. All you have to do is watch Everything is a Remix. Created by Kirby Ferguson (who you should remember from his engaging output of video art and observations under the banner of Goodiebag, and you may remember from his earlier, sexier productions), the four-part series is an examination of how our world is the way it is because of an innate cut and paste culture. Stealing, borrowing, remixing, or whatever verb you prefer isn't just how a handful of things come to fruition. It's how everything gets made. In the first installment, Ferguson chooses to look at remixing through music and lyrics of Led Zeppelin.

DVD Playhouse: April 2009

DVD Playhouse—April 2009

By

Allen Gardner

Milk (Universal) Sean Penn deservedly captured his second Best Actor Oscar (and Dustin Lance Black a statuette for his original screenplay) in director Gus Van Sant’s portrait of San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man to hold public office in the U.S. Alternately heartbreaking, infuriating and very funny, a film that both captures a bygone era and is still very timely. Fine support from Josh Brolin, Victor Garber, James Franco and Emile Hirsch. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Three featurettes. Widescreen. Dolby and DTS 5.1 surround.

Slumdog Millionaire (20th Century Fox) The Best Picture of 2008 is a kinetic, clever audience-pleaser about a determined lad (Dev Patel) from the slums of Mumbai, who has his chance at literal and financial redemption as a contestant on India’s version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire.
