Wed, Oct 20, 2010 (7:10 p.m.)
Red Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren have plenty of fun playing retired badasses in this silly but entertaining action-comedy. Now playing citywide.
Boardwalk Empire Steve Buscemi stars! Martin Scorsese produces! Mix in some guns, sex and amazing production design and this crime drama, centered in Atlantic City during prohibition, really couldn’t miss—and it doesn’t. Sundays, 9 p.m., HBO.
The Rocky Horror Glee show You have the weekend to brush up those killer “Time Warp” moves: The gleeks of McKinley High take on everyone’s favorite cult classic on Tuesday. It’s just a jump to the left and a step to the right! October 26, 8 p.m., FOX.
Jónsi Where Sigur Rós made you tear up, the solo project from the cinematic Icelandic band’s high-voiced lead singer could actually have you dancing by night’s end. Call it sugary Sigur. With Mountain Man, October 21, 9 p.m., $28-$34, House of Blues.
Bud Light World Gay Rodeo finals Head to Laughlin for your traditional rough stock, speed and roping events—plus Goat Dressing, Steer Decoration and the Wild Drag Race. October 21-24, Mojave Crossing Event Center, igra.com.
Claire Sinclair at Crazy Horse Paris While most kids her age worry about midterms, Playboy’s 19-year-old Miss October guest stars on the Strip. She won’t be totally topless though; Hef wouldn’t allow it. October 21-28, MGM Grand, $47-$57.
Slowpokes Judge Judy may have knocked Oprah off the top of daytime TV ratings, but she’s not immune from Internet pranks. For some low-tech hilarity watch the “Toilet” episode online at half-speed. Also surprisingly entertaining in slow-mo: anything hosted by Paula Deen. YouTube.com or wimp.com/judgejudy.
5secondfilms.com How many five-second (okay, technically eight with intros and credits) videos does it take to waste your entire day online? A LOT. Luckily, this site started in 2005 and now has a seemingly endless supply of miniature movies.
