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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

More Proof: G.I. Joe to Not Be Screened to Critics

G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra could have been a great movie. It could have been the beginning of a franchise. But then Stephen Sommers was hired to direct the film, and any chance the film had at being even halfway decent went right out the window. When the first footage was released, I knew we […]
