    The Horror! 'Scanners' & 'Tales From The Crypt' Headed To TV

    If the massive success of "The Walking Dead" on AMC has proven anything, it's that horror fare can be done right on the small screen and will find an audience, so perhaps it's no surprise that two more shows are in the works to try and capture that same lightning in a bottle.

    Very Best of Luck To All Presenting To Toronto's Executive Committee Tonight

    Today is a pivotal day in standing up against the remarkable and embarrassing shit show that has become Toronto civic politics since Mayor Rob Ford was elected last fall. Seemingly everyday a new and horrifying news story breaks about how Ford wants to cut insane amounts of social programs or funding, or how he refused to attend gay Pride, or how he gave the finger to a little girl, or how his brother doesn't know who Margaret Atwood is.... But today, over 300 people are set to present to the Executive Committee at City Hall... the vast majority of them expected to stand up against the insanity of Mr. Ford. So far it's been intensely entertaining and often inspriing to follow on twitter (Ford received a death threat and several speakers have been removed, including one for ""fingering a pretzel").

    Joe Pesci Files Lawsuit Against Producers Of ‘Gotti’ Over Weight Gain, Role Switch & Reduced Pay

    We've always been a little skeptical about the gestating "Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father" if only because the producers, Fiore Films, have somewhat improbably lined up a cast that includes John Travolta, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci despite the fact their only other produced film to date is this. Where were they getting the kind of scratch to get this big stars into play? How would the filmmakers whose only movie thus far is straight-to-video National Lampoon's comedy manage to make something solid of a film about one of the most notorious gangsters of our generation? Why did they use Lindsay Lohan to drum up press for the film by pretending they were going to cast her? Well, to hear it from Pesci, empty promises seem to be par for the course with these guys.

    Watch Chi McBride, Bow Wow And Evan Ross In Trailer For "The Family Tree"

    First time hearing about this flick... on the surface, just looking at its cast, I'd definitely sit up and pay attention; but, looking at the trailer below, don't know what to make of it.

    "Sleep Furiously" is Landscape, Self-Portrait and a Virtual Tour of the Welsh Countryside All in One

    There are too many documentaries being made. This is a fact. And as I mentioned in my column on "Tarnation" the other day, much of this has to do with too many people thinking either themselves or other slightly interesting people are deserving of a film. Add to that the issue of there being too many lyrical portraits of locations. Apparently anybody can make a tone poem about their town or somewhere else they find fascinating, and it will probably end up shown at museums and likely screen at the New York Film Festival. But just because they can, should they?
