    'Drive' Now Being Blamed By Guy Who Threw A Hot Dog At Tiger Woods

    Besides being one of the best movies of the year, "Drive" has also seemingly become a magnet for crazy people. There is the Detroit woman you heard about over the weekend who sued FilmDistrict because "Drive" wasn't "Fast Five" and she (idiotically) claimed it promoted violence against Jewish people...

    Review: 'The Thing' Lamely Inhabits John Carpenter's Original & Turns Into A Generic Monster Movie

    "The Thing" arrives this weekend as a prequel to John Carpenter's masterful 1982 film, that aims to theoretically expand on the story presented nearly three decades ago by telling us what happened at the Norwegian compound that first housed the alien infection that then spread to the American base. But perhaps it should be no surprise that screenwriter Eric Heisserer, the man behind "Final Destination 5" and the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" reboot, has little imagination or ability to bring anything new to the table.

    Magnolia Will Take On Fernando Meirelles’ '360' But Don't Expect An Awards Season Push

    One of the bigger disappointments of the festival season this fall was Fernando Meirelles' "360." The drama boasts a terrific ensemble including Rachel Weisz, Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins and Ben Foster, in a retelling of the classic Arthur Schnitzler play “Reigen” that chronicles the simple decision by one man to remain faithful to his wife and how it creates a ripple effect on various people worldwide, opening a window into modern relationships. But unfortunately, the promising concept failed to deliver, with the movie premiering at TIFF to mostly lukewarm reviews from audiences and critics alike. It wasn't immediately picked up in Toronto, bu...
