Random Movie News: Bryan Singer No Longer Directing X-Men

Didn’t have time to track all the movie news over the last week? Here’s a snapshot of some of the most interesting stories: Due to a scheduling conflict, Bryan Singer is no longer attached to direct X-Men: First Class. He will instead serve as producer.

How to Train Your Dragon Wins Box Office Friday

If anyone didn’t know DreamWork’s How to Train Your Dragon came out this weekend, you clearly haven’t watched television in the last two months. The unprecedented marketing blitz during the Olympics – including controversial product placement tied in with the sports broadcasts themselves – was rather overwhelming and, in my opinion, off-putting. It doesn’t help […]

The Funniest Movies of 2009

Comedy, typically, is my least favorite genre, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a good, funny movie. The problem in 2009 was that there just weren’t very many funny movies. The Hangover was great, but the funniest movie of the year? Yes, in 2009. In other years… maybe not. And dramedies like Away We […]

2012 Blu-Ray: The End of the World?

2012 is one of those movies I approached with trepidation. After all, we’ve seen director Roland Emmerich attempt to destroy the world on several occasions in the past (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow), and 2012 – the destruction movie to end all destruction movies – was bound to be just a graphics-heavy onslaught of… […]

About Damn Time: De Niro, Scorsese Reteam for Gangster Movie

Fans have been asking for it for years, and finally their wishes are coming true. Reuters is reporting that Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese are teaming up yet again to do a gangster movie. Having watched Robert De Niro’s career devolve into what can only be described as forgettable roles in forgettable movies, people […]

Mission: Impossible 4 Confirmed for May 2011

Jason Bourne may not be returning to theaters anytime soon, but America’s other favorite spy is: Paramount Pictures has confirmed that Tom Cruise will once again star as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible 4, and that production is being fast-tracked for a 2011 Memorial Day Weekend release date – which would likely mean it will […]

25 Must-See Movies in 2010

The New Year is here, which can only mean one thing: twelve more months of new movies! Sadly, while hundreds of movies will be released in 2010, most of them will end up being bland, disappointing or just plain bad. Which ones will amaze? Which ones will conquer? Which ones will  be at least worth […]

Movie News – Blake Lively, Star Trek 2 and Sam Mendes

It’s been a while since I reported on movie news, but I’m back – at least for this week. I have plenty of “top ten” lists to write over the coming months, but figured this would be an easy thing to do while watching the Patriots get their asses kicked by the Ravens. Here are […]

The Latest Movie News: Bad News for Roger Rabbit 2

It was a relatively slow news week in the world of movies, but I managed to pull a few nuggets from the last week. Here they are: Sacha Boren Cohen has started his own production company to do two more films, but they won’t be in the style of Borat and Bruno. After Bruno, all […]

The Latest Movie News: Blair Witch 3?

Here’s a recap of the latest movie news from the last week: Robert Zemeckis announced that a script, by the original writers, is in the works for Roger Rabbit 2. Ironically, a movie that stars a cartoon may be his first movie in a long while to feature live-action actors. Eduardo Sanchez announced some troubling […]

Top Movies News of the Week: Oct. 18-24, 2009

As always, there has been a fair amount of movie news over the last week. Here’s the good stuff: Paranormal Activity beat out Saw VI at Friday’s box office. Saw‘s box office reign may be over, as it is likely to take in under $20 million this weekend (compared to last year’s $30+ million opening). […]

The Top Movies News of the Week

A lot of things happen in a week, most of them boring. Here are ten things that aren’t: Sam Raimi acknowledges and agrees with criticism toward Spider-Man 3. Says he’s “to get back to the basics” with Spider-Man 4 (set to be released in 2011) Che, which was originally released in December 2008, is finally […]

Dumbest Idea of 2009: Titanic 3D?

Studio executives should have a good sense for future trends, correct? They are the ones intimately involved in the business of movies, and as much as we gripe about the crap that is shoveled into theaters, the fact is that studios make a good amount of money. These executives, to some extent or another, know […]

Indiana Jones 5 Coming Soon

It appears to be almost a certainty. In an interview, Harrison Ford had this to say about the prospects of Indiana Jones 5, to be titled Indiana Jones and The Quest to Be Better Than the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull: “The story for the new Indiana Jones is in the process of taking form. […]

Watch Bao Tran’s Bookie Right Now

A couple years ago, one of my friends and coworkers invited me to attend a film premiere at the Seattle Art Museum, and I, being a movie buff, obliged her. We showed up and waited in the lobby for half an hour as the previous screening – yes, there were two consecutive showings – emptied […]
