    "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" Released on DVD. Will the Mainstream Embrace it Now?

    While "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" was playing to a disappointingly small audience upon its release this past summer, many movie geeks predicted that when the film hit home video and mainstream audiences "discovered" it there/then that these people would admit they wish they'd seen it in theaters. I disagreed at the time partly because I don't think a lot of those viewers care what format they see most films in. But now I'm also wondering if the mainstream audience will even "discover" and embrace the comic book adaptation the way a lot of bloggers hopefully and scornfully presume. It could be a while before we see just how big a hit "Scott ...

    Ladies And Gentlemen... Rubik's Cube: The Movie

    Nine out of ten major blockbusters (maybe more?) of the last few years were based on pre-established names and brands. While the usual suspects produced completely awful movies, you'd be forgiven for hoping that Hollywood would learn some lessons from the more entertaining and satisfying successes. But when studios see something like "Pirates of the Caribbean" succeed, they don't think, "Oh, the audience craves high adventure and witty humorous comic interplay." They think, "We don't even need backstories to get saps to buy tickets to a name they recognize." 'Pirates' was certainly somewhat enjoyable, but would it have made $300 million domes...

    'The King's Speech' Director Tom Hooper Hates The Poster Too; Replacement Forthcoming

    There've been a fair few sub-par posters this year, but none quite as flabbergasting as the one revealed for Oscar front-runner "The King's Speech" last week. Apparently designed by a first-time Photoshop user during Bring Your Child To Work Day at the marketing wing of the Weinstein Company, it mad...
