Chase Whale Biography

Chase Whale’s entire life changed when his sweet mother took him to see TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY in the third grade. Fast forward to his early twenties, and Whale co-founded the little movie website that could, (now defunct). Through GATW, he’s covered Cannes, SXSW, Sundance, the Toronto International Film Festival, and Comic-Con, along with junkets in London, Toronto, and other parts of the world. In 2009, he was selected as one of NBC DFW’s 25 most interesting people in Dallas, next to Erykah Badu and Nolan Ryan. Also in 2009, he was chosen as one of The Wrap’s 30 Movie Insiders to Follow Right Now On Twitter. He’s also a member of the Austin Film Critics Association. Chase would like to take this time to thank his mother for letting him rent those really weird movies during junior high and high school.

A few weeks ago we spoke to Morgan Spurlock for his latest documentary, 'Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope', a film that captures the heart of Comic-Con culture and its diehard attendees. To get this film made, Spurlock was backed by four of today's biggest pop culture geeks: Stan Lee, Joss Whedon ('The Avengers'), Harry Knowles (of Ain't It Cool News), and Thomas Tull (executive producer of 'The Dark Knight Rises').
This really proved that Spurlock's not just a filmmaker, but also a fan determined to make an intriguing film for the people who love and understand geek-culture. You don't need to know a thing about Comic-Con to be captivated by this new documentary.

Will Ferrell was a guest on Conan last night to talk about his new film, 'Casa de mi Padre'. During his segment, after discussing a weird sex scene in the film, Ferrell talks about his brother, Terry, who lives on the Warner Bros. lot. You see, Terry used to work on the show 'Gilmore Girls' and after the show ended, Terry just didn't want to leave (rumor has it he is the cause of the show ending).

Jimmy Kimmel
We found out just a few days ago that Michael Bay and company are rebooting the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, but our beloved teenage turtle-shelled heroes will be "from an alien race and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely lovable." This tough new look completely karate kicks the whole original idea we are all costumed to in the face and fans everywhere are pissed.  To make light of all this mumbo jumbo, Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Kimmel separately wrote sketches surrounding the outcry of the fans.

Have you seen a Jimmy Kimmel "Unnecessary Censorship" video before? It's a sketch on his weekly show where he, this is so brilliant, takes clips of celebrities, politicians, TV shows and whoever else is currently in the media, and bleeps and blurs out certain parts of their speech to make it seem like their saying something very naughty or disgusting.

With having so many Late Show options to watch at night, our fabulous hosts have to be quick on their toes and come up with fun and creative ways to keep viewers attention or we're just going to change the channel.

Evan Seitz
Movie nerds do love to be challenged.
