‘Maniac’ Looks Superbad

A brand new Netflix series titled ‘Maniac’ looks superbad in a good way.

With a cast led by ‘Superbad’ co-stars Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, along with Sally Field and Justin Theroux, ‘Maniac’ looks like an entertaining mind trip. Escaping into this show appears oddly comforting as a creative yet twisted cognitive wonderland.

Haven’t we all said sang, “I’m a maniac, maniac I sure know” to ourselves?

‘Maniac’ premieres September 21 on Netflix.

A Penny for Your Thoughts

The Nominees for The 1st Annual Clark Kent Super Moment at the 2013 Oscars are:

Tommy Lee Jones finally laughing!
The on-stage musical number from “Les Misérables”
A montage of Seth MacFarlane’s best jokes
The Grey Poupon commercial
Adele’s win for Best Original Song for the movie “Skyfall”
Daniel Day-Lewis’ acceptance speech for Best Lead Actor in “Lincoln”
Sally Field and Jennifer Lawrence in general
Grant Heslov: “I know what you’re thinking: the three sexiest producers alive!”
Ben Affleck’s speech for “Argo” for its Best Picture win (including the funny and inadvertent quip about his wife and Iran)

and The Clark Kent goes to…

The 16th President of the United States of America

“I just want to thank…”

The 85th Academy Awards are this Sunday night. There are some powerful nominees this year, albeit with the absence of “The Dark Knight Rises.” Understanding its dark cloud, it is still odd that not even its soundtrack/sound was acknowledged. Fans know the quality of the film, which is perhaps most important.

Anyways, here are a few of the most popular questions being asked before this year’s ceremony:

Will Daniel Day-Lewis be the first former Republican President to receive a standing ovation in Hollywood?

Did Sally Field prove that she is not only still one of the finest actresses in Tinseltown, but literally the best from this past year…for the third time!?

Will Argo take home the Oscar for Best Picture? If so, will Ben Affleck be the primary speaker? What tone will he strike?

Does Seth MacFarlane become a household name or remain a comedy writer and producer within his already existent niche market?

What is Hollywood’s real opinion regarding the true story of tracking down and killing Osama bin Laden? The Navy Seal who shot bin Laden said Jessica Chastain’s portrayal of Maya was, “awesome.” He added, “They made her a tough woman, which she is,” he said. Will his endorsement of sorts mean anything?

And quite possibly the most important question pondered each year: Will the best individuals and films actually win?

Regardless of the names listed inside the golden envelopes, below is a video reminding these very actors, directors, editors, etc. of something very important to consider before they give their respective speeches:
