Extra! Extra! James Cameron knows how to make some money!

Surprising no one, Avatar destroyed DVD and Blu-Ray records with its release on Earth Day. I’m curious to see if Pandora holds up on my (admittedly awesome) 2D television. (Read my Avatar review here.)

The internet’s abuzz with news of a new 3D sequel to The Ring. Why anyone cares is a mystery to me.

Bryan Singer and Usual Suspects writer Christopher McQuarrie are reuniting for Jack the Giant Killer. Sometimes this team is flawless. Sometimes they make Valkyrie. Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Only Amy Heckerling has the power to make vampires awesome again!

 Star Krysten Ritter reveals that Amy Heckerling’s next film will be a “Clueless for vampires,” a premise which seems capable of single-handedly reviving the dwindling empire of sparkle moodiness. 

 

The Superman reboot will be written by Batman Begins and Blade screenwriter David Goyer. This is good news! The remake will not star Brandon Routh and Kate Bosworth and it will not be directed by Bryan Singer. This is also good news! 

 

Check out a Q&A with Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski here. And surprise surprise, Disney’s already talking trilogyContinue reading

Today is simply rife with news that I thought I’d never care about again and yet cannot seem to keep myself from reporting repeating!

Extra! Extra! A new vampire movie actually sounds interesting to me!

But before that…the SAG awards happened, apparently.

So…Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City) is attached to direct a Dracula: Year Zero flick about The Count’s transformation from Vlad the Impaler to Dracula. And Marla’s boyfriend Sam Worthington’s name is being bandied about! And all of a sudden I’m interested in vampires again! And then I remembered that I’m super pumped to watch Chan-wook Park’s sorta-vampire flick Thirst this week, and my life got all twisty-turny. Every time I think I’m out, they suck me back in.

Wow.

Since I was a little girl, I have loved going to the movies. That feeling of fluttery elation, of arriving to the theater in plenty of time to grab my favorite seat, guessing which trailers will precede the feature and mocking the ones that look awful, squeezing the forearm of my date in giddy anticipation and squealing under my breath, “It’s about to start!”—I wish I could bottle that feeling.  Working at a movie theater didn’t lessen my enthusiasm for movies. Becoming a film critic (of sorts!) hasn’t eroded my rapture at a cinematic outing. Hell, I met my husband at a movie theater, and anyone who knows us knows how poetic that really is. I am a girl who simply LOVES the movies, and on Friday evening at the IMAX theater in Houston, Texas, James Cameron reminded me why.

Oof, it’s almost Christmas, ya heard? Slave-driving Santa is keeping this little elf hella busy, so it’ll be a shortie this week!

golden globes

The Golden Globe noms are up and they’re typically boring and random. I love watching this particular kudos show because I think it’s fun and shiny, but yeah, the awards themselves are utterly irrelevant. But what do we think about exes Kathryn Bigelow and James Cameron going up against one another for Best Director? EXCITING! (Y’all know I’m psyched about Avatar, and I totally accidentally missed The Hurt Locker in the theatre, but still, go Kat!)

hobbit

Hrmm. Peter Parker as Bilbo Baggins? Get out your grain of salt for this one. I still like James McAvoy for the role, but granted, I like Jimmy Mac for everything. Seriously, for every role ever.

wolfman

I really, really, really want to see this movie, okay? Benicio! Sir Anthony! Hugo! WOLFMAN! Thanks to the always-awesome Backline Show  for the link. Check out the vintage-y trailer and rub your hands together in delicious anticipation, á la Marla.

Yeah, well, McG, people in hell want ice water. And speaking of people in hell, DON’T MAKE ME WATCH ANOTHER ONE OF YOUR STUPID MOVIES.
