By now you've heard everyone talking about a Cloverfield sequel. You probably already wrote your own blog post here or somewhere else speculating about it. So far, most of the ideas I've heard seemed lame in a unnecessary sort of way. Do we really need to see the same events of the day through a different point of view? Seems to just belabor the point to me.
Director Matt Reeves in a recent… Continue

Ironically, in my video post for the fan-made trailer for Marvel Zombies: The Movie that I put up a few days ago, I suggested that we'd likely never see an actual movie of this from Marvel. Already, I must eat crow.
According to the usually reliable Shock Till You Drop.com,… Continue

After the viral website sucess of Cloverfield, you knew that JJ Abrams was gonna get up to some of the same shenanigans with his upcoming Star Trek reboot. Sure enough, if you go to the official site and you look closely, there's a clickable spot that brings you to another site.…

No franchise left behind. That should be the new slogan of Hollywood. They could put it up in slightly smaller letters under the big Hollywood letters on the hilltop. Case in point: No, not The Beastmaster (although...come on, let's see it.) but Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan character. Popularized… Continue

I know that some of you out there actually liked Across the Universe, the Happy Meal-ized musical that came out this year featuring remakes of Beatles songs shoehorned in (like a glass slipper on an evil stepsister) to fit a lame… Continue

Hollywood is not frakking around about 3D. You'd think the shambling zombie corpse of William Castle had clawed his way out of the ground and eaten all the studio heads to take control.
Pixar has announced (and when Pixar announces anything...take notice) that their classic… Continue

Bits and pieces are sneaking out about the latest adaptation of a Chuck Palahniuk book, Choke.
To date only one other novel by the controversial and shocking author has made it… Continue

In all the hullabaloo over Heath Ledger's death today, one thing kept occurring to me. I didn't want to mention it and come off as callous. Let it be said that I am nothing but saddened by this and my deepest sympathies go out to his friends and family. But one more person got hurt from this no one is mentioning. That person is Terry Gilliam.
The director has… Continue

While I already knew, and approved of, the new X-files movie not featuring the alien mythology that was a centerpiece of the show for it's nine seasons, I was much afeared they would pick something really lame for the story. These new set pictures seem to tell a tired tale:…

Unfortunately, I'm not kidding.
The actor was found dead in his apartment at 3:35 pm today amongst bottles of sleeping pills.
I don't know what to say about this. I thought Ledger was a truly great actor who had a bright future in front of him. He will be missed.

Kathleen Turner hasn't aged well. Not so much like a bottle of wine as a piece of fruit. Don't take my word for it...
Ok, ok this is all a bit harsh. The woman is 53 and hardly can be expected to still be taking half-naked glamor shots. She… Continue

I haven't done anything on Iron Man for, like, weeks!
When was someone gonna tell me? Oh, I feel like a bad parent. But I got good stuff for ya today.
I suppose you guys have already heard about the whole Iron Man/Incredible Hulk crossover and maybe even the details on it, slipped out by William Hurt (who probably got a ruler to the back of his… Continue

Oliver Stone, who if you may remember was somewhat relevant back 15 years ago or so, likes to push buttons. Or at least he used to. Maybe he still does, but no one actually goes to see his movies anymore. Still, I couldn't help but be interested when I saw who the subject of his next film is...
Oh wait, I'm sorry… Continue

GORRAM It's a slow news day. So let's take a look at a movie I'm curious about set for release this May. I'm talking about the film adaptation of the scariest (to me anyways) Clive Barker story ever written...…

Kahless bless you.

There are films that are made for everybody. There are films that are made for niche crowds like gore fans or hardcore sci-fi buffs. Then, there are movies, not many of them, but a few, made entirely for people who are in an altered state of mind while they watch them. Some films like… Continue

As a hardcore, irrepressible geek boy myself, it's not really fair for me to judge, but he just sets himself up for ridicule sometimes.
