In case you haven't heard, the Rapture has been moved up. According to a California evangelical, a massive earthquake will shake the world, sending true believers to the heavens, leaving nonbelievers to watch the world destruction.*
That might sound like bad news (OK, really bad news) but the silver lining in all this is that we get to plan our final hours. So with the pending apocalypse — tonight or on Saturday, as originally scheduled — we ask, What movie would you watch on you last day?
Would it be a lighthearted movie to ease your mind? Or would you pick an apocalyptic movie to prepare you in case you survive Judgment Day?
*Just to put things into context, the same pastor who is predicting the end of the world incorrectly predicted the return of Jesus to Earth in 1994.
ETA: Since The Big Lebowski is currently ranked #1, we wanted to let all the achievers out there know that it's on ReelzChannel this weekend.

Today's Challenge: Blow Out and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas are both released on Blu-ray today. Can you find a link between leading men John Travolta and Johnny Depp?
Our first Facebook movie game, ClusterFlick, plays off that old "six degrees of separation" theory — you know, the one that has a certain Kevin at the center of the Hollywood universe. It's easy to play, but not so easy to win. The goal is to use the major cast of movies to get from Point A to Point B in the smallest number of moves.

Directors Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly finally found a home for their Three Stooges movie at MGM last year, and it looks like they have finally put together a surprising cast for the movie..
Variety reports that Jim Carrey will play heavier Stooge Curly, and will gain 40 pounds for the role. With Carrey's history in comedies, this isn't as surprising as the next two choices: Academy Award winners Sean Penn as Larry and Benicio Del Toro as Moe.
While neither Penn or Del Toro are strangers to comedies, Penn played the iconoclastic surfer Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Del Toro has made subtle comic turns in both The Usual Suspects and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, however, they are hardly two names that typically come to mind when thinking of the slapstick comedy of The Three Stooges.
The Stooges movie is not a biopic but a complete remake, with a script by the Farrellys, which Bobby described as "Dumb, Dumber & Dumbest." The Farrellys will start shooting this fall for a 2010 release. Posted 03.26.09 by Ryan
