Brett Ratner to Sweat All Over God of War

Wednesday, October 1 by

There's something calming about sitting down with one of the God of War games and mashing buttons until your thumb is bleeding and everything on-screen is dead. There is, however, a sparkley little bit of doubt in my heart that Hollywood's favorite—and certainly its shiniest—bad boy director, Brett Ratner, can make that translate to the big screen.

BREAKING NEWS: Bollywood On Strike!

Wednesday, October 1 by

Well folks, it looks like our brethren to the South East have run out of time on contract negotiations between allied Bollywood Unions and the Association of Motion Picture & TV Program Producers. Cameramen all across the subcontinent have put down their VHS camcorders and refused to return until demands are met.

11 Craziest Madonna Moments

Wednesday, October 1 by

I guess being married to Guy Ritchie gave her more than a faux English accent. Because the Queen of Pop has a new movie coming out called Fith and Wisdom. It’s her directorial debut and focuses on the sexy life of a Gypsy Punker and his cohorts.

Jack Black to Play Jason Bourne…Kind Of

Wednesday, October 1 by

As of right now, Top Secret is pretty much the height of spy comedy, but Jack Black is hoping to change with what is essentially a wacky version of the Bourne movies. Black will play a chubby guy who washes up on a Cuban beach with no memory and automatically assumes that he's some kind of super spy.

Fringe “The Arrival” Is a Little Slow

Wednesday, October 1 by

Recap: Season 1, episode 4. We start out in a diner where a creepy-looking guy orders the spiciest sandwich he can think of and watches construction workers through the window. Suddenly, there's a huge explosion, and as the workers are running, our bad breath-having friend walks into the epicenter, calls someone on the phone and says, "It has arrived."

Robin Getting His Own Pre-Batman TV Show

Wednesday, October 1 by

If I had to pick a character from the DC universe to get his or her own TV show, Robin would probably have been somehwere near the bottom of the list near Hawkman, but The Graysons, which tells the story of the Boy Wonder before he falls in with Batman has apparently gotten the green light by the CW. Here's hoping it's not another Birds of Prey. Yikes.

Saudi Cleric Issues Fatwa On TV Execs

Tuesday, September 30 by

As weird and conservative as politics get in the US of A, we usually don’t have the Pat Robertsons and Jerry Falwells (R.I.P.) calling for the death of TV executives and show presenters over ‘immoral’ content. Saudi Arabia is a tad different.

This Week’s DVDs That Don’t Suck: 9/30/08

Tuesday, September 30 by

There is so much good TV kicking around at the moment that it's hard to find time to watch it and the new DVDs without becoming a total hermit, but that shouldn't stop us from trying to figure it out. This week, Marvel's surprise hit of the summer is in the lead by a longshot. Iron Man: Two Disc Special Collector's Edition

The Spirit Trailer 2

Tuesday, September 30 by

The first couple spots for The Spirit were not all that awesome. There were tons of billboards around LA that were part of a big marketing campaign that never really impressed me. But now that this second trailer has been released, the movie looks pretty dope. I’ll definitely be seeing it.

Transformers 2 Will Be Partially IMAX®SIZED

Tuesday, September 30 by

I never saw The Dark Knight in IMAX®. I haven’t walked into an IMAX® theatre in about three years. The last thing I saw was about fighter pilots and I almost hurled. I have nothing against it, I just don’t really see the point. Call me a Luddite, but seems like the nice big screens that you find at most movie theatres these days are enough.  Dreamworks and Michael Bay would disagree.

13 Spin-Off Worthy Simpsons Characters

Tuesday, September 30 by

With 20 seasons and a successful movie under their belts, the next logical expansion of the Simpsons empire would be a spin-off. If it's going to happen, here's a list of characters that would be perfect in the spotlight, plus a few that would totally suck. 13. Kent Brockman

Marvel’s Upcoming Movies Dated

Tuesday, September 30 by

Marvel's colorful characters are the hottest commodity in Hollywood right now, and according to a deal extension between Paramount and the comic book giant, we're going to have plenty of superhero movies to keep us busy for the next couple of summers. Here's a quick breakdown:

Heroes “One of Us, One of Them”

Tuesday, September 30 by

Recap: Season 3, episode 3. With last week's premiere extravaganza in the bag, there are lots of new mysteries to unravel and lots of new super powers to be jealous of.

Bonus Features: Link Dump Bailout

Monday, September 29 by

There's an awful lot of people worrying about the economy right now, and I've found that the best way to deal with that is by burying your head in a big ass pile of movies and TV. Here are some links to help you kill the pain. And above is a very annoying guy who seems to have a lot of displaced anger he wants to take out on Matt Damon.

Blade Runner 2 Is A Horrible Idea

Monday, September 29 by

Sequels that are done 26 years after the fact are not a good idea. If it’s been that long, just go for the remake.  Blade Runner is one of the best Sci-Fi movies of all time, and it would take an amazing feat of moviemaking to even get close to the splendor of the original. But that doesn’t seem to be stopping the two ambitious co-writers of Eagle Eye from aiming to ruin your precious cinematic memories.
