    Shiver me timbers! It's the first trailer for "Pirates Of The Caribbean On Stranger Tides"! And that's about as fake enthused as we're going to get about this now dead franchise which inexplicably continues to rake in mad cash.

    Martin Scorsese Says 'The Irishman' With Robert De Niro & Joe Pesci Could Shoot Next Year

    Formerly known as "I Heard You Paint Houses" -- and retitled "The Irishman" -- this potential Martin Scorsese vehicle has been in the works for a while, but recently it seems to have picked up steam. Back in September it was reported that the "Raging Bull," "Goodfellas" and "Casino" duo of Robert De...

    Chaplin—First, Last, And Always

    For me, comedy begins with Charlie Chaplin. I know there were screen comedies before he came along, and I appreciate the work of everyone from Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Drew to Max Linder. But none of them created a persona as unique or indelible as the Little Tramp, and no one could match his worldwide i...

    The Originals: "TRON" is a Narratively Sufficient Sci-Fi Fantasy of Its Time

    Disney may or may not be attempting to hide the original "TRON" from potential consumers of its new sequel, "TRON: Legacy," but you can re-watch or introduce yourself to the cult classic on YouTube if you're willing to view it in sections (only 7 parts if you go with this one, while it lasts).
