SCHLUBBY ACTOR HIRES HOT BROAD

This is why I would like to be rich, famous and powerful. While watching the Miss Universe pageant, Adam Sandler saw Jennifer Hawkins, last year’s winner, hand off her crown to this year’s Beauticon. I guess he liked how she looked, because he offered Hawkins a role in his next film, Click. Click is a … Continue reading

THIRTYSOMETHING CANDLES

Here’s a fitting follow up to the news about a possible sequel to The Goonies– Molly Ringwald says she is mulling a sequel to Sixteen Candles. "I’ve turned it down for years. I couldn’t see how it would work," she said at Saturday’s MTV Movie Awards, where she was reunited with Breakfast Club co-stars Ally Sheedy and … Continue reading

GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE!

I want a sequel to The Goonies like I want a rectal prolapse, but there are plenty of people who love the original film, screamy and annoying as it is, enough to want to revisit these paper thin characters in their implausible situations all over again. And sometimes those people get together and have conventions. … Continue reading

PLISSKEN ON THE SHIP

Our favorite archetypal tough guy Kurt Russell goes from Disney superdad in Sky High to check-collector for a big Warner Bros. remake.  The guy who saved the President, Antarctica and Little China has joined the 21st century version of the 1972 disaster flick The Poseidon Adventure, which gilled helmer Wolfgang Petersen is directing. As with … Continue reading

X3 DIRECTORIAL MUSINGS – UPDATED!

UPDATE: Variety reports this morning that Ratner is signed, sealed and delivered to direct X3. Cope. I’ll just get it out of the way: Drew over at Ain’t it Cool says that either John Moore or Brett Ratner will be the new director for X3 in place of the departed Matthew Vaughn. Personally it sounds like … Continue reading

SILENCE K.I.T.T.

Wondering why it has taken so long for the Knight Rider movie to get made and finally knock that lame ass Titanic off the top spot? Fuzzy Wuzzy David Hasselhoff has the answer for you, courtesy of KGET TV 17: the studio didn’t want to have K.I.T.T. talk. "It’s stupid. There’s no film without a … Continue reading

A TAKE ON THE ISLAND

We don’t run scoop reviews of upcoming films for fear of liars, people assuming it’s the opinion of CHUD.com, and because we don’t have a readership that does that kind of stuff. Actually, we do, but they usally just email it to Harry Knowles and treat us like the chopped liver we are. That said, … Continue reading

ADDICTED TO DEPP

A friend of mine has the theory that Johnny Depp is so hot that he can’t rape someone. Like, if he had been doing the kind of grabassery that Christian Slater was engaged in earlier this week, no one would press charges. I don’t know if that’s true but I do know that the ladies … Continue reading
