Movie News

We could simply cut and paste stories from Variety, but we don’t. We’re too amazing for that. We RETYPE articles from Variety…


David Benioff is not just a screenwriter – he’s one of my favorite modern literary types, and that’s just after one novel and one collection of short stories. While I would like to see him hitting the word processor to get another novel out there, it’s tough to deny that it’s good to know that … Continue reading


Just this morning I saw an incredible movie called Save the Green Planet. It’s a Korean film from 2003 that’s only now getting an American release, and it’s stunning and bizarre and funny and sad and gory and weird. I’m describing it as King of Comedy meets They Live: A man is convinced that aliens … Continue reading

And here I thought they were simply turning the old television show into a contemporized film. You know, something that centered around a witch. … Continue reading


Avi Arad talks. And talks. And talks. Now he’s talking to Empire Online about the upcoming X3, to be directed by good old Matty Vaughn. That, by the way, was an Aint It Cool scoop that was correct. They had another scoop that was much less correct: “It won’t be a female Angel. I don’t … Continue reading


The end of the Lord of the Rings films has left a hole in my year-end moviegoing experience. I’m hoping that the upcoming Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe can help plug that hole to an extent. Now the folks at Narnia Fan have gotten a hold of an advertisement for … Continue reading
