Long Shot is a doc about the time Curb Your Enthusiasm saved someone's life

I love CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM. As a show, there are a lot of ways to describe it: funny, cringe-worthy, dry, absurdist, crazy. However, I'd never add "life saving" to that list...however that's something the show has done. Yes, CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM literally saved a man's life@ Now, how can a show do that? Well, besides something like LOST or GAME OF THRONES - which staves off...

Cubs finally win the World Series, and now they're gonna make a film of it

When you combine a supposed curse, a losing streak that spans over a century, and the winning hit made by the oldest player to homer in a Game 7 of the World Series (after being down by two points), you got a story made for cinema, son. Now, I don't give a shit about baseball (or any sport, really), but I definitely can get into sports movies. Like boxing bores the shit out...

Will Ferrell plays serious ball in the trailer for Ferrell Takes the Field

Aside from their killer original shows, HBO is also known for televising major sporting events. I'm, of course, referring to 7 DAYS IN HELL. The tennis mockumentary ended up providing some of the greater laughs of the year (check out our review here ), but that was just the tip of the iceberg. You may have seen Will Ferrell don the uniform of 10 different teams during Spring...

Cool Videos: Bryan Cranston takes baseball to a new level

Bryan Cranston can tear the screen up like it's nobody's business, and I'm pretty sure he could carry a one-man show dealing with any topic. It seems that TBS felt the same way as they enlisted the Cranstonater to advertise their postseason show in an advertisement that's all Cranston. If anyone could pull of a dramatic reading of 'Take Me Out to the Ballgame', it's him....

Todd Field to adapt baseball documentary about Kurt Russell's father

Aside from directing the next installment in the BOURNE franchise, Lin just recently obtained the rights to a retelling of the Sundance documentary THE BATTERED BASTARDS OF BASEBALL. Based on the story of Russell's father, Bing Russell, THE BATTERED BASTARDS is a film tailor-made for the big...

WTF trailer for Korean gorilla baseball movie Mr. Go features a lot of yelling and jumping

Sometimes you just can't resist and when I saw a gorilla playing baseball there was no turning back. This new trailer for MR. GO, a 3D Korean film about an 800-pound gorilla who joins a professional baseball team looks every bit as wacky and insane as a movie about...a gorilla playing baseball. Featuring a whole lot of yelling, jumping, and general monkey business (I couldn't resist), MR. GO...
