    Review: 'Green Hornet' Lacks Sting, Anything Else Even Remotely Interesting

    Loud, clamoring, haphazardly thrown together and risibly scripted from what feels like a poor first draft, Michel Gondry's unfunny, unengaging "The Green Hornet" lands in a January release date because it's exactly warranted: it's a throwaway action picture meant to fill the early new year void, but...

    Michel Gondry Says 'The We & The I' Films Next Summer; Also Working On Animated Noam Chomsky Doc

    Screenings have started for Michel Gondry's first big tentpole studio film, "The Green Hornet," and the early reactions on Twitter have been positive. Certainly, it seems to indicate that reports of Sony's pleasure with the film were on the money and if the early word continues to build in the same direction, it would be a remarkable turnaround for a film that only a few months ago had most movie sites ringings its death knell. So with that film gearing up for release next month, Gondry is already looking to what's next and he's certainly not short on options. The animated project "Megalomania" and ambitious musical project "The Return Of The...
