    Last year, when the Producers Guild of America officially accepted "transmedia producer" as one of its Producer Code of Credits, the term "transmedia" suddenly gained a lot of currency in the entertainment world.

    Video Review Shows Go Young: Ebert Presents and ComingSoon's FilmPulse

    Michael Phillips and Tony Scott, where art thou? Cheers went up among cinephiles when At the Movies dumped the two Bens (callow Lyons and less callow Mankiewicz), but unfortunately the damage was done, and Phillips and Scott were perhaps too intelligently polite to survive in TV land.

    There's Going To Be A 'Fast Six,' Obviously

    While we may bemoan studios forever clinging to sequels and franchises, there is a very good reason why. They make shitloads of money. Thus far, "The Fast And The Furious" franchise has brought just under $1 billion worldwide at the box office, doing more than triple the budget for these films. That...

    Brief Thoughts on "Scream 4," or Wes Craven's *New* New Nightmare.

    In the dozens upon dozens of mixed reviews of "Scream 4" (or "Scre4m," rather, although I'm pretty certain that won't affect the way you think it), I find it surprising that hardly any have mentioned "Wes Craven's New Nightmare," a sly work with which the new movie is unquestionably in tune. In Cra...
