    "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" is a Necessary, Dazzling Episode in the History of Pop

    I feel bad for any critics who had to see the expressly inspirational, spectacularly feel-good pop chronicle “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” in a studio screening room, joined solely by fellow representatives of the press. The proper way to watch this new, knowingly necessary 3D documentary is -- as I viewed it -- in a multiplex theater full of screaming and cheering purple-clad fans. Most of who were waving glow sticks and singing along during the concert numbers and booing Miley Cyrus and taking flash photos of the screen (presumably to prove they’d been there, as if it were a live event rather than just a filmed and edited replay). Sure,...

    'Captain America' Writers Hired Back For Sequel; Bryan Singer Hints At 'First Class' Followup

    Marvel is wasting no time on the continued expansion of their onscreen universe, and they've got a lot of projects on the go, but they must like what they're seeing in "Captain America: The First Avenger" as Latino Review reports that writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, have been hired back to pen a sequel. Man, they really want to crank these things out. While there were some whispers that McFeely and Markus had their work punched up by Joss Whedon, the extent of that (if it happened) is unknown and if we had to wager a guess, we'd say that Whedon might've been merely been doing continuity touch-ups to allow "Captain America" to ...

    Review: Please Don't 'Just Go With It'

    The stories of Adam Sandler as a generous superstar are numerous. In addition to his charity work and what's said to be a personable demeanor (amongst those the protective star allows inside), there's no doubt he's been loyal to both his fanbase and friends. Nobody, including the scandal-happy tablo...

    "Logan's Run" Remake Wins Over Skeptics By Wooing Ryan Gosling

    So much for the original idea of a new adaptation of "Logan's Run" being skewed younger than Michael Anderson's Oscar-winning 1976 film. Like that version, Warner Bros.' remake (produced by Joel Silver, scripted by Alex Garland) will be about a future society in which people are put to death at the age of 30 (in the novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson, the age cap is 21). Deadline has reported that 30-year-old Ryan Gosling will star as the title character, a kind of death enforcer who goes on the run when his expiration date arrives. Ironically, Gosling now seems too old for a part after being fired from another adaptation ("...

    Dinner at Eight

    Besides Alfred Hitchcock, the other important director of American films whose centenary arrived in the final year of the 20th Century was George Cukor, and during the first year (of several) in which he got nominated for a directing Oscar (for Katharine Hepburn’s Little Women), he also did a remarkable all-star movie that could nearly stand as a time capsule for the state of popular U.S. cinema circa 1933: DINNER AT EIGHT (available on DVD). The nation’s number one box office attraction, for the fourth consecutive year, was the pug-faced, rotund and aging character actress Marie Dressler, here in her penultimate film. She would be dead fr...

    Really? Jaume Collet-Serra, F. Gary Gray & Jon Chu On Shortlist To Direct 'G.I. Joe 2'

    When it was revealed last month that Stephen Sommers had been quietly removed from the director's chair of "G.I. Joe 2," we figured that a shortlist of contenders would come sooner rather than later. Well, it's been a month and Paramount has apparently got their ducks in a row and have a trio of uh,...
