    Joss Whedon Was Offered, Turned Down Chance To Reboot 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' Himself

    Fans To End Hunger Strikes, Bombing Campaign Few fan communities (other than, it would appear, RED camera acolytes) are quite as vocal as those with a love of the work of Joss Whedon. The writer-director became a public figure with the success of the TV version of his own film script, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," and, with the show coinciding with the early years of the internet, Whedon has had a vociferous, powerful following ever since -- they managed to keep "Dollhouse," an interesting failure at best, on the air for a second season, despite rock-bottom ratings, and even persuaded Universal to greenlight "Serenity," a film version of anoth...

    Christopher Nolan Says Stop Trying To Figure Out The Purposely Ambiguous Ending Of 'Inception'

    Director Also Confirms -- For The Ninth Frickin' Time -- That 'The Dark Knight Rises' Is His Last 'Batman' FilmVindication at last! Or at least, sorta. Anyone who's followed our site closely this year (including its old iteration) knows we've maintained since day one that the controversial, much-discussed and picked-over/picked apart ending of Christopher Nolan's "Inception" was meant to be open-ended and ambiguous (though ok, truthfully, some of us have insisted it ended as a tragedy like all his previous noir-ish films, see the ending of "The Prestige," "Insomnia" and "Memento") . In the tradition of the great Stanley Kubrick -- which the f...

    On DVD: "Knight and Day" - The Best Action Comedy of the Year

    Last night I was at a loss for a DVD pick of the week and wondered if I might find some worth in either "Knight and Day" or "The Sorcerer's Apprentice." I do love to defend the merits of a dismissed or underrated Hollywood production. Sometimes it doesn't work out, as was the case when I finally saw...

    'Rabbit Hole' Gets A Lovely New Poster That Captures The Film's Complex Emotional Tone

    As much as we love to crap on the lazy attempts or woeful misfires, making a one-sheet is hard, the more subtle and complex the work, the more difficult it is to encapsulate the film into a poster. So it's rare when something works well, but when it does, the results are definitely rewarding.
