Pop Rocks (2004 TV Movie)
“They played a bunch of arcade games and went on the slides and jungle gyms,” says an onlooker about the father-son duo at the L.A.-area fun zone. “Robin was literally the only adult on the jungle gym. Julian was sitting on his lap going down the slide.”
While roaming the venue, Thicke and Julian were also spotted snacking on Pop Rocks candy and ice cream.
Animation has become such a vast and active division of cinema in recent years that the word itself no longer feels specific enough. Kubo and the Two Strings (Universal, PG), the Laika company’s ravishing new stop-motion spectacle, has about as much in common formally, stylistically and narratively with a Pixar CG romp as with any live action film. Muddling Japanese folklore with its own manner of whimsy in a tale of a samurai’s son on a complicated, spirit-riddled quest to save his family and discover his legacy, Travis Knight’s debut boasts frame after ornately designed frame of gasp-inducing beauty. It looks and leaps like nothing else in its peer group, yet I wish I’d been as absorbed by its world as I was awed by it.
"Nice corsage," Fallon tells his bro, scoping out the dance floor. "Thanks!" Johnson responds, in a braces-induced lisp. "My mom helped me put it on because I was piercing my nipple." After hyping up each other by declaring they "totally scro-tally" rule the school, they ruin the vibe with each nervous female encounter.
Fallon tells one girl, "If you chew the chips lerng energh,
Though it gleefully identifies the obvious metaphor for its existence when presented, the self-aware Mr. Right is more analogous to a proposed super-treat mentioned in passing: fried whipped cream. This movie is pure confectionery. Sam Rockwell, playing an assassin-with-a-heart-of-gold, starts dancing within ten seconds of appearing on screen, and practically never stops. Anna Kendrick, as the disastrously rebounding gal swept up in his wake, is committedly deranged. And at its best, Max Landis’s genre-savvy dialogue crackles like Pop Rocks. These are all great things in moderation, but a dessert that’s all sweet, sweet froth, no base, doesn’t make for much of a dish at all.
Never quite as fun as it should be, Mr. Right is hard of vision, probably because one eye is fixed on the camera in a perpetual state of winking.
This latest tragedy is something of a horrific role-reversal. Monsters, serial killers and maniacs in film and literature are often inspired by the real thing. A truly horrific incident based on fiction is another matter. For no matter what sick, depraved Awful one can create, it doesn’t hold a candle to reality.
Bernard Rose’s Candyman both exploits and takes such matters into account. The film follows Helen Lyle (Virgina Madsen) a graduate student at the University of Chicago in the then-fictional academic field of Folklore.
Well, Adam kept a low profile on social media this week. Very low profile.
This is the only pic he’s put on Instagram this week.

While we wait for Adam to rev up again, let’s take another trip to fantasy land, and pick a current movie that could definitely improve with a Adam Infusion.
How about …. Heaven Is For Real!
Based on a true story, Heaven Is For Real concerns a young boy who lapses into a coma after drinking a deadly combination of Pop Rocks and soda. While hovering between life and death, he has a heavenly vision,
The lover of Doritos and junk food in general brought a bag of Pop Rocks into the Dolby Theatre with her for the awards show. Surprisingly, though, she wasn't the one who had packed them. Instead, it was the folks on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" who gave her the Pop Rocks she took into the Oscars.
"When I'm presenting, I'm going to pour them into my mouth," she told Us Weekly on the red carpet before the show. As we now know, she didn't follow through on that claim.
But since she is Jennifer Lawrence, the Oscar winner also came with protein-filled snacks of her own.
If that description sounds familiar, that’s probably because Ping Pong Summer has the misfortune of coming after two similar — and better
Every new season of Justified is like getting a block of sandstone you chip away at, knowing you’ll unearth a treasure, a precious fossil or gem perhaps. But it requires patience to get that treasure out and hours of work. The season premieres are usually front-loaded with information; they are usually followed by some stand alone episodes containing more of that stone being chipped away – a little here, and a little there. Episode 502 continues that annual trend as our attention is diverted slightly from what transpired in “A Murder of Crowes” to follow up on one of our favorite recurring characters: Loretta McCready (played by Kaitlyn Dever, who never fails to impress).
You might remember her as the young girl Mags Bennett took in during season two, after her sons killed Loretta’s father. We also got to see
Just ask Jimmy Fallon.
The comic and his Late Night with Jimmy Fallon team debuted a Breaking Bad parody they dubbed "Joking Bad" on Wednesday night – and it's immediately gone viral.
The nearly 13-minute digital short features real life new father Fallon, 38, looking alarmingly like Bryan Cranston's Walter White, who is told he has no more than six months left on his late night show.
In faux despair, the host decides to sell jokes
