    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,...

    We Just Crapped Our Pants: Ryan Gosling & Nicolas Winding Refn Team For 'Logan's Run'

    Ahhh! This is what Ryan Gosling was alluding to. Let's face it, we didn't give a shit about the "Logan's Run" remake throughout its long development history that saw a number of directors -- notably Bryan Singer and more recently Carl Erik Rinsch (who is moving on to do "47 Ronin") -- circle the dir...
