    George Nolfi Addresses The Abandoned Fourth 'Bourne' Film With Matt Damon He Wrote

    With "The Adjustment Bureau" hitting theaters next week, we sat down to talk to first-time director (and writer) George Nolfi just very recently. Nolfi, who wrote "The Sentinel" and the rather gonzo, "Ocean's Twelve," endeared himself to Universal executives by working on the script for the "Bourne...

    Oscarbation: The Road To The Oscars 2011 & Predictions

    Last year, the Academy Awards expanded the field of Best Picture nominees to ten, ostensibly to give the public the feeling of having influence on what awards committees deemed the finest films of the year. Some argued the move was intended to level the populist playing field in 2008 when "The Dark Knight" was not nominated for a Best Picture award, and the public seemed to be outraged over this move. But one could say the strategy backfired, as the winner was Kathryn Bigelow’s tense war picture “The Hurt Locker,” one of the lowest grossing Best Picture winners in the last few decades. And of course it lost out to the MOR-player "Avatar," now...

    Review: 'Drive Angry 3D' Is a Hellzapoppin' Blast Of B-Movie Ridiculousness

    "Drive Angry 3D" is everything it wants to be. And slightly more. If one wonders to what extent filmmakers have NOT been using 3D, director Patrick Lussier answers with this picture, a crazy, bad dudes-and-fast-cars camp classic in the making. Shocking, grotesque, and completely ridiculous, audience...

    Viggo Mortensen Being Courted To Play General Zod In Zack Snyder's 'Superman'

    Kevin Costner Confirmed To Be Up For Jonathan KentIt's not so long since we speculated on the choice of villain in the upcoming Zack Snyder-helmed, Christopher Nolan-produced reboot of "Superman"; with Henry Cavill being picked to play the man of steel, it seemed like the next logical step for his adversary to appear, but, despite a number of names cropping up in rumors, it was never entirely clear which villain from the character's 80-year history would be facing off against Clark Kent's alter ego. But, breaking last thing on Friday night, we seem to have an idea of not only who the antagonist will be, but also the actor that seems to be lea...

    What Did We Miss? The Overlooked Movies Of 2010

    What's with all the attention for the movies that everyone saw? Spirits, Oscars, Critics Groups: doesn't it sometimes seem like the wrong emphasis? All this money is spent, all this noise is made, for what we have all already have seen. Okay, I get it. If you are reading this, you are not like regular people anyway. You probably go to the movies, and all the events of this weekend are actually for the folks that don't go to the movies. Is it ironic that people watch the Oscars, but don't want to pay to see movies (but that's something for later). If we started our own awards show for the films that needed more love than what they got, ...
