Adam McKay Finds His Dick Cheney In Christian Bale

Academy Award winner Christian Bale might not be the first name that springs to mind when thinking of former Vice President Dick Cheney – but this is the performer reportedly now on board for the lead role in Adam McKay’s planned film about the controversial figure. While the project currently remains untitled, the movie will also feature Academy Award nominees Amy Adams and Steve Carell.

The film continues a move into more socially relevant work by filmmaker Adam McKay – also an Academy Award winner – after the success of 2016’s The Big Short.

The War On Terror meets The Final Frontier and asks the most important question of all time. What does God need with a starship?

It killed the careers of the director, producer, the entire special effects company, and nearly ended the entire franchise right there and then. It is remembered merely as a vanity project gone horribly wrong.

But ask yourself this. What does God need with a starship? Can you answer it? Can you understand the question? To dismiss it out of hand is to dismiss the opportunity to think. Do not turn your brain off.

Star Trek V: The Final Frontier is the ultimate question.

'Dark Knight Rises' Reviews Are In, The Verdict: Awesome

Fans have been chomping at the bat for news on whether or not the latest chapter in director Christopher Nolan's caped crusader saga delivers on the promise of his previous two Batman films, and now that reviews for "The Dark Knight Rises" are filtering in it's safe to say that it does, in spades.

Though many of these early reviews are tempered with the notion that it doesn't quite live up to the Heath Ledger-dominated second installment, as the closing act in a comic book trilogy it is inspiring high praise as well as high-minded discussion of what Nolan's vision of capitalism run amok means in the current socioeconomic climate.

But don't worry, though there may be politics, there's also a great deal of punching.

Tonight, Raymond Blanc, the impenetrably accented culinary genius, shares eez passion for pooo-deengs. His rice pooo-deeng is, of course, way better than any rice pudding you've ever seen. It emits a golden light not dissimilar to the briefcase in Pulp Fiction. He knocks up a tarte tatin and then invites one of his junior chefs to taste it.
