    Awards buzz, Indie News, Disney Confab

    In Indie news, despite Inglourious Basterds' rousing start, the Weinsteins aren't out of the woods. They weren't taking any chances.

    John Carter of Mars Adds Morton, Walker, West

    I was brought up in Manhattan by a single Dad. His best pal Jerry Rubenstein's idea of a birthday present for an eight-year-old, girl or boy, was Tarzan of the Apes, by Edgar Rice Burroughs. I scarfed it up and read every single book ever written by Burroughs, especially his Barsoom Martian novels. I read The Chessmen of Mars over and over.

    Trailer Watch: Bullock Adapts Blind Side

    Hollywood was bound to make a movie of Michael Lewis's non-fiction book The Blind Side. The question is, what kind? I wish Steven Soderbergh were directing this Lewis movie (as long as he's not doing Moneyball) because he would bring the clear-eyed authenticity that made both Erin Brockovich and Tra...
