Jurassic Park 4 is dead, long live Jurassic Park. With the death of popular author Michael Crichton a few weeks back, producers Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy announced that the movie, which has been in development hell for years, is officially dead. So said Kennedy: “No… I don’t know. You know, when Crichton passed away, […]

The Dark Knight Returns to Theaters

Warner Brothers announced today that The Dark Knight, which can only be described as a complete and utter success, will be re-released to theaters on January 23, 2009, with the dual intent of cashing in just a little more on the Batman franchise and reminding Oscar voters just how damn good this movie really is. […]

Is This True? Ridley Scott to Make Monopoly Game Movie?

Every once in a while, a story comes along that just leaves you scratching your head. If it had been announced by some random blog or rumor website, one could dismiss it as pure conjecture – silly conjecture at that – and go on with their lives. But the story came from The Hollywood Reporter, […]

The Green Hornet… A comedy?

Fans were already apprehensive with the casting of Seth Rogen as The Green Hornet, one of the world’s oldest superheroes, and now they have a reason to be downright upset. With the hiring of director Stephen Chow (Kung Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer), it sounds like the movie is headed back towards being more of a […]

Year of the Fish (2008) Movie Review

When hearing that Year of the Fish is a modern-day Cinderella story, that’s not a cue to take your children to it. After all, the movie is about a Chinese immigrant named Ye Xian (An Nguyen) who finds herself working for and in debt to the owner of a massage parlor – in actuality a […]

Can you watch movies for 120 hours straight?

My contacts over at Electric Artists alerted me to this ridiculously insane event: the Netflix Movie Watching World Championship. What is the Netflix Movie Watching World Championship, you ask? Well, it’s a laid back event where all you have to do is watch movies, and lots of ’em. Easy peesy, you say, while chuckling and […]

10 Movies to See in September 2008

It’s September, which means that the summer movie season is officially over and the crap of Hollywood can make it to the big screen.

The Office: Season Four starts off where Season Three left off – surprise, surprise – with […]

One of the Best Books Ever Becoming a Movie

Another one of Chuck Palahniuk’s books is being turned into a movie, and the world will be better for it. Assuming they do it right, of course. Palahniuk has Choke, starring Sam Rockwell, coming to theaters this fall, but the author with the name that no one quite knows how to pronounce is best known […]

Big Trouble in Little Twilight… Movie?

It may be nothing… or it may be something. Twilight, only a couple months before its release, has returned some of its actors to shooting new scenes. Peter Facinelli (Carlisle Cullen in the movie) told MTV that there’s nothing wrong with the current film, but that executives were so delighted with the wrapped film that […]

Movie Update: The Darker Side of Superman

Superman is going to get just a little bit darker, according to Warner Brothers president Jeff Robinov, and will completely ignore the recent Brian Singer movie. Is that good or bad news? I think good. As most of you know, I prefer something a little darker and edgier over lighter and goofier, which is the […]

Top 30 Sci-Fi Films According to Yahoo!

Here’s the perfect example why popularity ratings cannot be used to make Top 10 Lists… or in this case, Top 30 Lists. Yahoo! has released a list of its Top 30 Sci-Fi Movies, according to its user ratings. I can’t be too harsh, though, as there are some surprisingly good entries – but as you’ll […]

Bolt and Twilight Move in for the Kill

In the devastating hole left by the retreat of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Disney’s Bolt and Summit’s Twilight have moved into feast on the potential box office dollars left behind. The movies – both of which aim at younger audiences (Bolt at considerably younger) – had been staying clear of the coveted November […]

Inglorious Bastards is Actually… Austin Powers 4?
