There’s no doubt that there is some pretty crazy shit selling on eBay. But what happens when you arrive on a page with an scary-sounding recorded message?
That’s what happened to this eBay user. To his surprise, he arrived on a page where an eBay seller got incredibly mad when people bought his movie cards when they thought they were buying DVDs.
Wanting people to get the message, he recorded a very frightening message alerting potential buyers.
On another note, this eBay seller recently passed away due to Cystic Fibrosis. RIP, angry eBay seller.

‘Blue Crush 2,’ the highly anticipated sequel to the 2002 smash ‘Blue Crush’ starring Kate Bosworth and Michelle Rodriguez, was released on June 7 and I had the pleasure of sitting down with some of the cast and the director.
I meet Sasha Jackson and Ben Milliken, two of the film’s stars, and director Mike Elliot at ‘Hotel Le Germaine’ in Toronto. It’s clear they’re doing well for themselves, I mean, the hotel is swanky.
The first thing I tell them is that the movie actually surprised me – it was fun and, unlike many sequels, not horrible.
“Did you like it? Because we haven’t seen it yet,” says Jackson.
That must drive you crazy, I say. Imagine yourself being recorded and broadcast to a global audience without approving it. Terrifying right? To make matters worse, Jackson says she can’t stand to watch herself on screen.
“I don’t watch it as it’s me, I never have. But I will notice when I look like, ugly in a scene,” says Jackson. “I’m not good of an actress.”
Jackson has no reason to be tough on herself, though. The budding actress has appeared in everything from ‘One Tree Hill’ to larger film roles that are in the works.
Milliken, though, seems a little less used to fame. Well, at least according to director Elliot, who jokingly berates him for admitting he’s married. “Ben, you’re not supposed to let the little girls out there know that you’re married. The fantasy has to be maintained.”
“I’m terrible at this whole thing,” Milliken says.
As we continue the chat, Jackson admits that she had never been on a surfboard before the film and found it rather difficult to shoot the scenes she did.
“Every time you see me stand up and come off the board, that’s me. Not fall off the board, but [laughs] yes. Every time you see me fall and nearly die, that’s me.”

But when his exit is cut off in a flash flood, Frank’s team-including 17-year-old son Josh and financier Carl Hurley are forced to radically alter plans. With dwindling supplies, the crew must navigate an underwater labyrinth to make it out. Soon, they are confronted with the unavoidable question: Can they survive, or will they be trapped forever?

Producers of the hit franchise ‘Harry Potter’ are planning on releasing ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1′ in 3D for a Blu-ray release. Funny, because just last year, the producers ditched plans to release it in 3D in theaters. Change of heart, I guess.
But it doesn’t stop there. The rest of the franchise may get the 3D treatment too. “We’re doing 3-D for the DVD of ’7, Part 1,’ and there’s been no discussion of anything else yet,” producer David Heyman told MTV News recently. “But I suspect the studio is going to be reluctant to let it die, and if there’s an opportunity to maybe enrich … ”
Back in March 2010, Heyman also said “I’m sure it’s just a matter of time” regarding the 3D conversion of the entire series. Looks like he’s a man of his word.
For now, though, the filmmakers are racing to finish “Deathly Hallows, Part 2″ before the July release and working on the conversion of the first part for the Blu-ray.
“We’re very pleased with the way ‘Part 1′ is going – the 3-D for the Blu-ray,” producer David Barron said. “It’s really exciting, really involved.”
“I was surprised at how wonderful it is. It is different in some ways [than the theatrical release], but it’s enriching,” said Heyman. “The quality is quite different… It’s much easier, in a way, to do 3-D for a smaller screen than it is for a bigger screen.”
And there you have it. I personally don’t get the whole 3D trend, it gives me a headache, but if others love it then power to them.

The ballerina double used for Natalie Portman in “Black Swan” is speaking out about how much dancing she actually did in the movie, reports Perez Hilton. And it’s more than you think.
“Of the full body shots, I would say 5 percent are Natalie. All the other shots are me,” said Sarah Lane, the dance double. That’s a huge difference than the 85 per cent the instructor said Portman did. “The shots that are just her face with arms, those shots are definitely Natalie,” said Lane. “But that doesn’t show the actual dancing.”
This revelation comes after Natalie’s instructor, baby daddy and fiancée defended Natalie and how much she actually did in the movie.
Lane also claims that producer Ari Handel specifically told her to keep quiet over this. “They wanted to create this idea in people’s minds that Natalie was some kind of prodigy or so gifted in dance and really worked so hard to make herself a ballerina in a year and a half for the movie, basically because of the Oscar,” said Lane. “It is demeaning to the profession and not just to me. I’ve been doing this for 22 years…. Can you become a concert pianist in a year and a half, even if you’re a movie star?”
Despite all this drama, though, Lane doesn’t have any jealous or angry feelings toward the Oscar winning actress. In fact, she thinks she did a wonderful job.
“I do give her a lot of credit because in a year and a half she lost a lot of weight and she really tried to go method and get into a dancers head and really feel like a ballet dancer. [Natalie] is an amazing actress, for sure,” Lane says. “I know that it’s not a personal thing against me. I know that it’s just a political thing. It’s just unfortunate that I kind of lost credit.”
I feel bad for the this dance double. I can only imagine how rigorous it must have been for her, and then to get no credit for her hard work is a real middle finger to her talents.
I still think Portman deserved to win the oscar though, because even though she didn’t do all the dancing, her acting and mindset throughout the movie was what really drove the movie forward. To be honest, I don’t know why the double is lashing out at Portman. It’s not like it’s her fault she’s getting all the praise, she is the star of the film, after all.
If you want to check out her performance, make sure to pick up “Black Swan” on DVD on Tuesday, March 29.

“It was very, very scary,” Murphy tells andPOP.
It’s not like the comedian was without experience. Murphy had acted on The Chapelle Show and his brother is, of course, Eddie Murphy.
Even though he grew up under the same roof as one of Hollywood’s most recognisable comics, Murphy never planned on entering the acting world. It wasn’t until he left the military that he gave acting and writing a shot.
