DVD Review: Lake Placid 2 Unrated

Why do I subject myself to watching movies like this? Lake Placid 2: Unrated, a direct-to-DVD horror movie release, was just asking to be bad, and guess what? It is bad. Really bad. I have to admit that I sort of liked the original Lake Placid, starring Bill Pullman. It was cheesy and not the […]

Academy Award Analysis: Best Visual Effects Oscar 2008

With the Oscars fast approaching, I figured I’d better start writing about my Oscar picks and predictions. I’ll start with one of the easier categories, the Best Visual Effects category. For the 2008 Academy Awards, three movies are nominated: Transformers If this one doesn’t win, I’ll shoot someone. Or I’ll punch a pillow. Or I’ll […]

Networks Announce Return of TV Shows, Post-Writer’s Strike

The writer’s strike is over, and all I can say is… thank you Lord! As a result, the major networks have started to release press releases detailing what to expect over the last couple of months. Many people feared that TV shows would be done for the season, but apparently the networks were more worried… […]

Werewolves Cry Foul in X-Files 2?

I just read this over at MovieWeb… Apparently, the werewolf rumor revolving around some “leaked” pictures from The X-Files 2, is false. The source in the article is said to be Gil Brooks, and when asked about the rumor, this was the response: After chuckling a bit, he said that Chris Carter knows what he’s […]

Indiana Jones Movie Trailer Coming This Week!

This is old news by now, but I just read that the movie trailer (well, presumably, the teaser trailer) for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will arrive in theaters with The Spiderwick Chronicles, and probably sometime soon on the Internet as well. UPDATE: Paramount sent this to me today… The trailer […]

Heath Ledger’s Death Ruled an Accident. Is that True?

The coroner announced today that Heath Ledger died as a result of an accidental overdose of about a dozen different prescribed medicines, the belief being that he had been prescribed the drugs by different doctors and thus took something that reacted badly with something else. This is all fine and good, and to save a […]

Out of Town… And Upcoming Movie Reviews

I thought I was going to be able to maintain my movie blog while I was away, but considering I haven’t posted anything since Friday when I left, I guess not. I traveled down to St. Pete Beach, Florida to stay at the Don CeSar Resort for a client conference unrelated to anything FilmJabber. The […]

Writer’s Strike Rolling to an End

It looks like the Oscars may go on without a hitch, other than some last minute jokes which surely won’t be any more cringe-inducing than usual.

Clean Flix Operator Busted Having Sex With Underage Girls

Oh, religious conservatives. How their hypocrisy continues to amaze me. Of course, that’s a broad generalization… I’m sure there are a lot of religious conservatives who practice what they preach; then again, I’m sure there are a lot who either lie to themselves, lie to others or are just downright hypocrites. Take one Daniel Thompson, […]

Should Heath Ledger Be Replaced in His Next Movie?

Johnny Depp is being rumored to replace Heath Ledger in the upcoming Terry Gilliam movie The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, which begs the question: if a leading actor dies, what should happen to the film? My personal belief is that a movie shouldn’t die based on one man alone. After all, there are hundreds of […]
