Terminator: Salvation – A Must See For Any Terminator Fan

[singlepic id=83 w=240 h=320 float=center]

So, today was the day I was finally able to see the new summer blockbuster, “Terminator: Salvation”. I.LOVED.IT. I’ve been a fan of all the other Terminator movies, seeing the first one as a child. This story picks up awhile after the last one left off, but it opened in an unusual way. At first, during opening credits, I was getting upset b/c any fan is used to, and WANTS to hear the classic anthem that we first heard in the first Terminator movie. But if you listen close, you realize that it is, only “futurized” and thank god, ends with the boom boom boom boom boom metallic beat.

Speculation! We LOVE BB Speculation!

Bring on all speculation we can get!  It’s one of the great things about Big Brother…  Letting our minds go wild about what may be to come.  Sometimes, we are totally right on, many other times, we fail miserably.  I found a speculation online this evening that sounds quite plausible…  Thank you to Online Big Brother, they have calculated the Thursdays due to run this season, and has come up with a quite plausible 13 houseguests (if there is one double eviction like usual.) Now, that it would make the whole male/female ratio off by one.

Jon and Kate Plus 8 – Time to Call It Quits?

[singlepic id=77 w=320 h=240 float=left]On May 14, 2006, we were introduced to the Gosselin Family. We watched the hour long special which revolved around the daily routine of raising twins and sextuplets. The show was all about the children. Nearly one year later, the first episode of the reality show series aired. It was still all about the children, but through short clips of interviews with Jon and Kate, we slowly became aware of the parents’ personalities. Kate clearly wore the pants in the family while Jon appeared to be more passive in an attempt to keep things running smoothly in their home.
Three years later, the show has done a complete 180. Instead of it being all about the kids, it’s all about Jon and Kate. The kids are merely there for “filler” between solo interviews with either Jon or Kate, who discuss their failing marriage. Between the end of season 4, which aired at the end of March, and the beginning of season 5, which aired at the end of May, the media had a field day with the rumor that Jon was cheating on Kate with a 23 year old teacher. Shortly after this rumor started, there was a counter-rumor that Kate was having an affair with her bodyguard. Who really knows if either rumor is true, but clearly their marriage is in trouble. As a matter of fact, on May 27, 2009, Showbiz Tonight broke the news that allegedly TLC is helping Jon find an apartment that is “camera-ready” so they are able to film him in his new home.
The question seems to be this: Is it time for the show to call it quits? Have these children been scarred enough from having cameras in their little faces 2-3 times a week?

Just over two weeks ago we here at YakkityYaks started the Best Movie Of All Time Showdown. We started with 100 movies, paired them up and voted between each pair which one was better………and now we’re FINALLY down to our FINAL TWO MOVIES!!!! So now it’s time to decide which of these two, according to YakkityYaks, are the best movies of all time. I have to tell you too, I haven’t voted yet because they’re both great! So what are the two movies??? Well, it’s come down to One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest Vs. The Godfather, Part II!!!

Saint Dagame’s Sermon

Greetings one and all please allow me to introduce myself.  I am Saint Dagame, patron saint of reality shows as well as high priest of the Church of Gina Gershon and today starts a new era for the Yak.  This is the first of many sermons that I will be giving to you, my adoring congregation, so remember this day because it will be one you will rejoice for decades to come.

I have decided to make this first sermon about tainting victories.  Did Apollo Creed ruin Rcoky’s title win?  Did the Patriots come up with conspiracy theories when they lost the Superbowl to the Giants?  Did Arnold Jackson make up excuses why he lost his fight with The Gooch?  The answer to all of the above is a resounding no, yet so many of you out there want to taint Kris Allen’s victory over Adam Lambert on American Idol by coming up with crazy conspiracy theories and downright nonsense so I’m here to set you straight.

This week, last year, Big Brother Finalists Decided!

Yes, it was this week, towards the end of May, that the Big Brother cast finalists were called.  In the first week of June, there was an article in TV Guide talking about the new houseguests we had to look forward to.  More commercials started to roll through June.  End of June, we began hearing the insider info on the hamsters, the final decisions are already made and those who made it in get the call, and shortly thereafter, “press day” arrives and we get to get to see the hamsters themselves.

When Is Enough Enough With American Idol?

[singlepic id=72 w=280 h=200 float=left] So we just had the showdown between Kris Allen and Adam Lambert on the finale of Season Eight of American Idol and I have to admit, despite media proclamations, this SHOULD  be a close race. But what I REALLY want to talk about here is the burning question of when is enough, enough with American Idol? The judges, the entire season, have been SO obvious in their idolistic adoration of Adam Lambert, it’s hard to imagine why the season was even allowed to continue. If the judges had their way they probably would’ve given the title to Adam weeks ago.

May Upfronts: What does FOX have in store for 09-10?

Well, May upfronts started today! I’m a big TV nerd, so this is the time of the year I keep up with news like my life depended on it. Some things make me happy about this and some don’t (read: CBS, watch your back!). More on all that later. FOX presented their upcoming schedule and I think this might be one of the few times FOX might be competitive before Idol kicks off! Check below to see what’s around, what’s gone, and what’s new!
