    Paul W.S. Anderson Will Direct Roman Disaster Epic 'Pompeii'

    Which Is Ironic, Because We'd Rather Fling Ourselves Into A Volcano Than Watch One Of His FilmsIs there a worse mainstream director working today than Paul W.S. Anderson? It's hard to say. Certainly if you can call the "Vampires Suck" duo of Jason Freidberg and Aaron Seltzer directors, they would probably pip him.

    New Pics From Rod Lurie's Remake Of Sam Peckinpah's 'Straw Dogs'

    Here's a film we haven't heard about in a while...but will undoubtedly get tongues wagging. If you don't know Sam Peckinpah's "Straw Dogs," its reputation precedes it. The hard-to-watch film starred Dustin Hoffman as a mild-mannered man who is forced to violently reckon with his own masculinity after his wife is brutally raped and he must defend his home against the perpetrators. It's uneasy stuff that was lightning rod for controversy back in the day, and will likely stir up similar sentiment now. But regardless, director Rod Lurie ("The Contender," "Nothing But The Truth") has forged ahead with a remake and EW (print edition, not yet online...

    Listen, we know that talking about Oscar this early in the game is pretty foolish. That said, other bloggers/film sites either already have tentative lists going or wil be very soon -- in fact, this writer remembers being in Cannes last year with early word swarmed around France's "Of Gods And Men" ...
