The team behind the hit musical Wicked are itching to make a screen adaptation of the book that later became a Tony Award winning sensation.  And, let’s be honest, J.J. Abrams needs more of our money.  Abrams has been approached by the play’s power team (Marc Platt, Winnie Holzman and Stephen Schwartz) to possibly direct [...]

Get Carter…seriously!

Pull the trigger...

Some of the biggest news in Hollywood lately is the questionable fate of MGM and the James Bond franchise of movies.  It’s no secret that MGM has had its share of near-death experiences and resurrections.  The iconic studio, however, is facing bankruptcy due to a debt of over $400 million.  Yikes. MGM controls the James [...]

Operation Endgame

The Operation: Endgame trailer is out and it looks pretty incredible.  The plot seems pretty basic: There are two teams of spies/assassins.  They want to kill one another.  Seems like some good old-fashioned action.  Here’s the kicker…it looks REALLY funny!  Get a load of this cast… Zack Galifinakis (G-Force, The Hangover, Out Cold), Adam Scott [...]

Summer Movies blahs? How ’bout an IM2 deleted scene?

Tony Stark

  It’s no secret that there’s crap-all to see at the local multiplex right now, at least until Inception rolls out to blow our noggins.  The last thing I actually cared about seeing was Iron Man 2 and that came out, what,  8 months ago? So now that the hype from Tony Stark’s latest has calmed [...]

How low can you go? ‘Get Low’ raises the bar!

Get Low!

I don’t usually find myself drawn to period-piece films, but when Robery Duvall and Bill Murray star in one, it’s hard to pass up.  Without regard to the cast, Get Low turned out to be pretty fantastic. Get Low is the story of Felix Bush (Duvall) who plans to throw himself a living funeral – [...]

Joaquin Street Art

The last time Joaquin Phoenix showed up on Letterman’s couch, he was debuting his new-look and announced his career change to become a hip-hop artist.  We all now know that he was presenting us with some meta advertising for his documentary with Casey Affleck, I’m Still Here.  On the 22nd, I hope to have my [...]

Inception. Yeah, it was pretty great.

Inception

Since the late 1800′s, the world has been fascinated by movies, films, moving pictures.  Each time a film is made, the rest of the world is challenged to make one even better.  We live in a world where we seem to be running out of original ideas, so we just see more spectacular versions of [...]

A great new idea for DC crossovers at the movies!

I’d love to give credit where credit’s due, but the truth is, I canNOT remember where I first heard this idea (who knows?  Maybe I dreamt it!):  The Christopher Nolan-supervised The Dark Knight Rises and Superman: The Man of Steel movies aren’t going to be connected (ala World’s Finest) with a big spandex meet-n-greet, but [...]

Over the course of my 27 years on this planet, my interest in baseball has gone from a strong “Very Interested”, where I collected baseball cards and played little league to a weak “Remember Rookie of the Year?  That movie was the best baseball movie ever!”  After doing some light internet reading, I came across [...]
