    Two Tarzan Movies Are Cooking...

    As my Yiddish brothers and sisters would say, Oy vey... Read on below from Deadline:Warner Bros has been trying to get its Tarzan movie up and running for several years. Now, I'm hearing that the studio is trying again and word on the vine is they might well commission two separate scripts that'll be written simultaneously. One will be by Adam Cozad, a rising scribe whose recent work includes the Jack Ryan reboot and Archangel, the pic that has Tron: Legacy's Joseph Kosinski attached. I also hear that the studio is talking to Craig Brewer about doing a different version of the picture. This has been done before on big pictures and usually the...

    In Theaters: 'Thor' Brings The Hammer Down On 'Something Borrowed'

    Guys, guys, guys, I KNOW. I know "Fast Five" is still in theaters and all we want to do is go back and watch it 5 million more times. Has there ever been another film that has latched itself into our nation's consciousness so firmly and so quickly? God bless and keep Justin Lin, and thank you baby Jesus they ripped "Terminator" out of McG's sweaty fists and handed it over to this true artist. Action movies have been saved! So if last weekend was the first official start of summer blockbuster season (ALREADY?) this weekend really cements it as "Thor" brings the hammer down in the First Comic Book Movie in the Summer of Comic Book Movies. Marve...

    "Something Borrowed" is a More Refreshing and Complex Adaptation Than it Seems

    The chick flick is such a maligned genre that sometimes I wonder why people make them anymore. Not that I’m disputing the fact that there’s plenty of money to be made, but it still must be kind of hard for writers, directors and stars to take the almost obligatory revulsion on the part of critics. Many reviews read as if they were written before having even seen the movie, and the critic only went to the screening to fill in plot details. Maybe it’s just that I put myself through the experience of reading “Something Borrowed,” Emily Giffin’s novel, but it’s worth thinking about why this movie was made, what it’s trying to do, and endeavor to ...

    Should Black Celebrities Boycott "Celebrity Apprentice?"

    I admit I've never seen the show, and I've never had any interest to see the show. And after Donald Trump put on his Grand Kleagle KKK hood and robes, with his whole "birther" issue, I've had even less reason to see it.
