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, GordonandtheWhale.com (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.

Saint Patrick's Day is tomorrow, where, if there's a parade or popular street full of bars in your town area, you'll find handfuls of drunk heathens stumbling the streets, teeth stained from drinking too much green beer. The Irish know how to drink; young college boys wanting to be Irish for a day, do not.
Found Footage is probably the greatest thing to happen to the Internet, especially to YouTube. A video of a teenager hurting himself while trying to show off in front of friends or a baby laughing for 10 seconds can go viral around the world within hours. We spend hours upon hours watch the same video and passing it around to our friends on Facebook and Twitter.
Letterman's top 10 lists are always the highlight of the show. He brings on a celebrity guest to read them, and depending on how great of an actor this person may be, their reactions are what usually sell it. That was certainly the case when Cee Lo Green came to town.
Sam Mendes is currently shooting 'Skyfall', the next film in the James Bond franchise in London and today we get our first unofficial photos of Javier Bardem as the film's villain, Silva. Courtesy of Daily Mail, we can see here that Bardem's blonde hair rivals his 'No Country for Old Men' bowl cut for Worst Hair To Put On Javier.
“This isn’t really a spoiler, but...” is one of the worst thing to come out of someone's mouth. We live in a world where most of our time is spent on the Internet, browsing the web and social networks like Twitter and Facebook, and it's incredibly easy to accidentally read a spoiler when all you were trying to do was look at pictures of your best friend's new puppy. Besides running out of toiler paper, it's the most irritating thing in the world.
The first trailer for 'On the Road', Walter Salles' feature adaption of Jack Kerouac's famous autobiographical novel of the same name, has just been released. Starring Sam Riley ('Control') as Kerouac's alter ego, Sal Paradise, Garrett Hedlund ('Tron: Legacy') as his new pal Dean Moriarty (the fictionalized version of Neal Cassady), and Kristen Stewart as Moriarty's 16-year-old wife, the story follows them on their impromptu road trips throughout America from 1947 to 1950. During their journey, they start to change and understand who they are - self discovery if you will. Also starring in the film is Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen and a Saxophone-playing Terrence Howard ('Iron Man').
The easiest way to get your fifteen minutes of fame on the Internet is to come up with a cool Chuck Norris meme. It all started with the Chuck Norris Facts, which is a humorous play on Chuck being the manliest of men due to all his action roles. A fine example is this video, where Chuck karate kicks through a car window and comes out unharmed.

It was a good idea replacing Brendan Fraser for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the sequel to 2008's 'Journey to the Center of the Earth'. While Fraser did prove he could sell the first ('Journey 1' pulled in $242 million worldwide on a $60 million budget) and pleased most critics (62% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes), 'Journey 2: The Mysterious Island' has managed to pull in $242 million worldwide and is still selling out internationally. Why? People love The Rock. This is the only actor who can star in a movie called 'Tooth Fairy' and make it a box office success. The Rock will make you see his movie.
Dogs are adorable. You can't lose with a comedy skit when you're including precious felines.
