‘G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra’ And Eliza Dushku Around The Blogosphere

There’s a lot of buzzing Around the Blogosphere today. I’m not going to spoil the good stuff, so just keep reading.

— “Entourage” is one of the few summer TV series’ that I make sure to tune in for every week. It’s celebrity wish-fulfillment at its best. As such, I’m not onboard with a lot of the complaints that have been lodged against the series in recent seasons. Regardless, I still find this set of suggestions for making the show more watchable entertaining. (Movieline)

— Support independent film, always. I’m a blockbuster nut, so of course I am a huge fan of studio efforts. But without indie film, we’d miss out on so many amazing Hollywood “discoveries.” And since this column is all about supporting my peers on the web, Film Junk gives me the best of both worlds today with their horror/comedy short film project. Check it out. (Film Junk)

— As a fan of both video games and film, I always jump at the opportunity to talk about both here on the MTV Movies Blog. So I was overjoyed this morning when I came across some comments from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star Eliza Dushku defending the practice of playing games as a for-adults pasttime. She also hunts elk you know. With a bow and arrow. Will you marry me, Eliza? (BBC, via Joystiq)
