    Media Watch: Deadline and PMK Add Segall and Koltai-Levine, Newsweek Sells, Forbes Loves Blogs

    It's a smart move for Mail.com CEO Jay Penske to bring on trade-savvy Lynne Segall as vice president/publisher, who was unaccountably let go by the LA Times, where she launched The Envelope, among other cash cows.

    Solar Tsunami Destroys New York City

    Don't you just love doomsday news? Today everyone is talking about the solar tsunami, or "coronal mass ejection," or simply sun explosion, that's heading straight towards Earth. I'm pretty sure we're safe from anything more than perhaps a few power outages and satellite damage. But I have no idea. I'm not a scientist. I'm a movie blogger. And all I know of solar flares is what we're shown in the movies. Maybe this approaching storm is the beginning of the chain reaction that causes the end of the world in 2012, as seen in "2012." Or, maybe there will be a quicker effect, such as what occurs in Alex Proyas' "Knowing." Maybe Nic Cage dropped ou...

At Comic-Con, several directors played to anti-3-D sentiment in the cavernous Hall H. J. J. Abrams believes that “when you put the glasses on, everything gets dim." Joss Whedon loves 3-D, but at the same time was against MGM turning his production of The Cabin in the Woods 3-D: now Whedon hopes being the only non-3-D horror flick could make it special. With almost 60 3-D films set for release in the next two years across some 5,000 digital screens, now 2-D is old-school-cool. Some filmmakers are r...

    Unraveling Inception: Zimmer's Piaf Riff, Clothing Clues, Nolan's Anxiety

(The movie's so good that the Chinese government is allowing it to play there, a rare honor for a Hollywood picture.) Here are some recent popul...
