So, what's the word? Well, for the most part -- except for the typically crusty U.K. critics -- it looks like Spielberg has delivered one of the best pieces of pop-entertainment of his career.

    "The Josephine Baker Story" Coming Out On Blu-Ray In January

    A few months ago I reported that there was news that HBO's 1991 bio-pic The Josephine Baker Story starring Lynn Whitfield as the legendary entertainer, would be coming out sometime on blu-ray DVD. (1991? WOW That was 20 years ago! How times flies! That was back when NO ONE had cable TV!)

    Weekend B.O. (Oct. 14-16) - Bombs Away!

    This was not a good week for the studios. Everything either underperformed or just tanked. (I'll get to that in a minute) Footloose was No.2 doing much less than was projected.
