Who would’ve thought that 2 actors from Encino Man would get Oscar noms?
January 24th, 2023 under Brendan Fraser, Oscars. [ Comments: none ]

Encino Man was a fun movie. However, there was nothing Oscar-caliber about it.

Alas, that was 30 years ago, and today Brendan Fraser and Ke Huy Quan found out that they are Oscar-worthy. Fraser is nominated for Best Lead Actor for The Whale, and Quan could take home Best Supporting Actor for Everything, Everywhere, All At Once. Not bad for a defrosted caveman and a computer nerd!

They are not the only actors from the 1992 film to receive a nomination from the Academy Awards. Sean Astin was nominated in 1995 for Best Short Film, Live Action for Kangaroo Court.

How is Pauly Shore going to weasel his way into getting a nomination? We shall see!

We haven’t been saying Brendan Fraser’s name correctly
December 12th, 2022 under Adam Sandler, Brendan Fraser. [ Comments: none ]

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always thought that Brendan Fraser’s last name was pronounced as Fray-zhur. And we were wrong.

Fraser told Adam Sandler during Variety’s Actors on Actors (which isn’t what I thought it was) that it is actually pronounced Fray-zer.

I don’t mean to insult him, but he can’t teach this old dog a new trick. So, I will keep saying his name incorrectly. Although, I will try to pronounce it as he pronounced it. Are you going to do the same?

Brendan Fraser apologizes for George of the Jungle
October 17th, 2022 under Brendan Fraser. [ Comments: none ]

It has been 25 years since George of the Jungle came out, and now the movie’s lead is apologizing to San Fransisco.

Over the weekend, Brendan Fraser’s new movie Whale played at the Mill Valley Film Festival, and he had a message for the locals. He told them, “My bad. It won’t happen again.”

What was his bad? There was a scene where Geroge of the Jungle had to save a man whose parachute got stuck on the Golden Gate Bridge. Since the movie had the budget, they used the real SF landmark. However, they used a fake man in a parachute.

Well, San Franciscans believed it was a real man, so they stopped traffic to watch as his fate unfolded. They weren’t the only ones, so did the local news. They broke into The Oprah Winfrey Show to report on the parachutist. And that is real fake news for those of you who scream fake news.

Anyways, Fraser is sorry and will not film another harrowing scene from the Golden Gate Bridge again.

Doom Patrol is back with singing and dancing butts
October 10th, 2022 under Brendan Fraser, HBO Max, Matt Bomer. [ Comments: none ]

No butts about it, season 4 of Doom Patrol is going to be the butt of all jokes. So be prepared for the toilet humor as Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser), “Negative Man” aka Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer), “Elasti-Woman” aka Rita Farr (April Bowlby), “Crazy Jane” (Diane Guerrero), “Cyborg” aka Victor Stone (Joivan Wade), joined by former super-villain “Madame Rouge” aka Laura de Mille (Michelle Gomez) take on an army of asses starting on December 8th.

Seriously, is there anything else you need to know about the season to watch it on HBO Max? I didn’t think so.

But if you do need a little more, then here it is. Season 4 opens with the team unexpectedly traveling to the future to find an unwelcome surprise. Faced with their imminent demise, the Doom Patrol must decide once and for all which is more important: their own happiness or the fate of the world?

But let’s be honest. We are all tuning in for the singing and dancing butts!!! With them, you know it is not going to be a shitty season. That is unless there are no toilets, and they relieve themselves all over the place.

Doom Patrol is back for a smaller but bigger second season
June 25th, 2020 under Brendan Fraser, DC Comics, Matt Bomer. [ Comments: none ]


Doom Patrol is back today with its second season on HBO Max and DC Universe to see if it can top its first super season. When we last left off, our not-your-ordinary superheroes were shrunk down to doll size, and they have not grown an inch since then.

They obviously want to get bigger again, but The Cheif (Timothy Dalton) has not figured out a way to do it. He knows someone who can possibly help him, but that help will come at a huge cost. How far are they willing to go to be normal-sized again?

That is just one of their many problems. The Cheif’s daughter, Dorothy (Abigail Shapiro), is now living with them, and she has a lot of issues. The biggest one is that she will never grow up. Although some might say, it is probably all of the evil things living inside of her. When they come out, everyone should be afraid.

The Cheif wants Rita Farr (April Bowlby), Jane (Diane Guerrero), and Cliff Steel (Brendan Fraser) to get along with her. However, they are focused on themselves and getting bigger again.

Rita is not as stretchy as she used to be, and she needs to get her power back. Jane is losing her battle with her demons. While Cliff is dealing with his daughter, who thought he was dead for her whole life. How will she handle that he is alive and living robot?

Vic (Joivan Wade) and Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer) are still normal-sized and they are working on themselves. Vic is getting help from a therapy group, and he makes a new friend. While Larry is met with faces from his past. Will they accept him as he now?

The first three episodes that are streaming today are catching us up with what they have been through since they saved the world. But it is also catching us up on who they were before we got to know them. They have a lot of issues, and being tiny superheroes doesn’t help.

Especially since one of them is paying the ultimate price for them. But I have said too much…

What I can say is that Doom Patrol is anything but doomed. It is the best comic book show on television because it is unlike all of the others. The best way to put it is that there is sex, drugs, and Disco! Who doesn’t love that combo?

If you want to watch something original and fun, then check out Doom Patrol! It is everything you want and so much more.
