    Review: 'Arthur' A Tedious, Bland Comedy That Earns Intermittent Laughs Almost By Accident

    “Why?” will echo through your head if you’re a fan of the 1981 “Arthur” starring Dudley Moore as you watch this useless remake. The original won a shiny pair of Oscars and is considered a classic, but apparently Warner Bros. thought it needed to be remade for contemporary audiences. But the larger p...

    Screenwriter Joe Eszterhas Returns With 'Lust' In His Heart

    There was a time -- quite a long time ago -- when Joe Eszterhas was one of the biggest screenwriting names around town. He made his name with "Flashdance" and "Jagged Edge" and exploded into the stratosphere with "Basic Instinct" which soon saw him commanding millions for his work. But with disappointments in follow-ups "Jade" (which is now mostly known for being a punchline in "40 Year Old Virgin") and "Sliver" and the colossal bomb that was "Showgirls," Eszterhas packed his bags and left Hollywood. And while he may not be in Tinseltown anymore, the movie bug struck and he's got a new script that will mark his comeback vehicle, and no surpri...

    Author Anthony Horowitz Writing Tintin Sequel 'Prisoners of the Sun' For Peter Jackson To Direct

    We're still about eight months (six months if you're in the U.K.) from seeing the long-awaited Steven Spielberg/Peter Jackson adaptation of the classic Hergé comic character Tintin, in "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn" (the film opens internationally, where the series is a juggernaut, in October, before landing in the U.S. at Christmas). The motion-capture-fueled project was always planned as a trilogy -- the idea was that Spielberg would direct the first film, Jackson the second and another helmer, possibly Robert Zemeckis, the third. While the film's uncertain domestic appeal prevented the original idea of making all thr...
