Where is the X-Files Movie Promotion?

The X-Files: I Want to Believe is coming to theaters on July 25, less than two months away. The movie is arguably the biggest movie on 20th Century Fox’s roster for 2008, and if not at least in the top three behind The Day the Earth Stood Still and The Happening. The X-Files 2 has […]

Elizabeth Berkley Joins Donnie Darko 2

Those of you who thought that perhaps – just perhaps – that the production of S. Darko (also known as Donnie Darko 2) was just some bad rumor will be troubled to hear that casting is indeed going forward. Whereas the first movie starred practically unknown Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, the casting has gone the […]

The Hobbit Prequels Halted?

The Lord of the Ring franchise is New Line Cinema’s greatest achievement and greatest curse. The movies, which mark the pinnacle of the now all-but-defunct company, have made billions of dollars in revenue – but have also brought along some hefty lawsuits to boot. With the Peter Jackson lawsuit now behind them, New Line is […]

Harry Potter Actor Stabbed to Death

The Associated Press is reporting that an actor who played a minor role in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has died after being stabbed to death. Eighteen-year-old Rob Knox was killed when he got involved in a fight outside a bar. Allegedly, a 21-year old suspect, who has been taken into custody, […]

Communists Complain About Indiana Jones 4 – Really?

Oh, those silly little Soviets. One may think that communism is dead in Russia, or not if you watch as Vladimir Putin moves “his country” closer and closer to a KGB-esque version of democracy, but regardless of what he denies, there still is a Communist Party in Russia, and they allegedly want to return Russia […]

Indiana Jones Expected to Be Best of Summer, Says Survey

A recent survey conducted by FilmJabber.com found that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was expected to be the best of the summer by moviegoers. The Harrison Ford-starring film, the first Indiana Jones movie in nearly two decades, has been buzzing, and 27% of the survey takers said it “will be the […]

Donnie Darko 2: What Has the World Come To?

I love Donnie Darko. The movie, directed by Richard Kelly and starring Jake Gyllenhaal, was an amazing piece of work in every way. I do not love news that Donnie Darko 2 is in the works, however. There are some movies that are great on their own, that are so good that any other related […]

22 Movies to Watch This Summer

May 2008 is here, and that can only mean one thing: I grow another year older, and the summer movie season has started. Okay, that’s two things, but read on anyway! There are a lot of great movies coming out this year, or, at least, movies that appear to be great. From a new Batman […]

New Hot Female Star in Transformers 2

Say what you want about Michael Bay, but the man knows how to cast his females. With Megan Fox, one of the stars of last year’s Transformers movie, topping FHM’s Sexiest Women list, being a young, attractive woman in a Bay film is not a bad career move. Teresa Palmer, best known for her love […]

Indie Film Feature: The Horror Vault

The second independent film I’m featuring this week is The Horror Vault, a cheerful comedy about two young people in love, frolicking in the flowers, snow and gentle summer breeze. Or, maybe, it’s a compilation of several short horror films inspired by Tales from the Crypt, Masters of Horror and Creepshow. Here is a description […]

Scarlett Johansson Becomes Hermione Granger

Yes, Scarlett Johansson is replacing Emma Watson in the final Harry Potter movie. Warner Brothers said, “We felt, as Hermione Granger reaches a proper age, that she needed to have more curves and sex appeal. Scarlett brings that to the table.” Reports are also coming in that the ending of the series will be modified: […]

Indie Film Feature: Nemesis (2008)

Every once in a while, I receive a request to review or feature an independently produced film that has been made. I don’t have a time to review a bunch of movies that will probably never be seen by the vast majority of my readers, but after receiving several requests in the last week, I […]

The New X-Files 2 Movie Title… Sucks!

I’m starting to feel and sound like a bitter old man. Nothing seems to please me of late, other than driving around Green Lake in Seattle and admiring all of the beautiful female joggers that were out in storm today. So, maybe it’s just me, but does the new title for the new X-Files movie […]

Will Speed Racer Flop Already?

I’m sorry, but does Speed Racer look like one of the worst movies ever conceived to you? Every time I see a trailer or a commercial or an email or an article about the movie, I cringe. Those poor saps who work at the movie theaters where the commercials are playing on the overhead TVs […]

How Will the Descent 2 Movie Work?

OK, so in the American version of The Descent, Sarah, the lead character, scrambles up a bone-filled hill, crawls through a hole and escapes the cave where the monsters who killed all her friends dwell. She runs through the forest like a crazy woman, gets in her car and drives away. Once she is far […]
