Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter

Suprise, suprise, another studio is delving into the ever-popular vampire genre. I don’t know much about “Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter,” but it sounds like the title for a porno movie. And I might not be far off with that assumption. According to the description on Wikipedia, the books are an “erotic” series written by Laurell K. Hamilton and have evolved into a monthly comic book series, as well. This will be under the IFC banner, produced by After Dark Films

Spiderman 4 Script in 2009

According to MovieWeb, director Sam Rami is saying a “Spiderman 4” script will be ready by this summer. And that’s all he knows. He’s reluctant to discuss villains because, well, the screenplay isn’t even done (see: isn’t even started). I’m reluctant to give a rat’s derierre because emo-Peter Parker in the last movie was so friggin’ lame I literally had to punch myself in my own netherregions to keep from abusing small animals. Wha? Too harsh? I’m sorry Sam Rami,

Trailer Tuesday: Funny People

Every Tuesday I’ll have a trailer up on the blog – it could be something from the past, something currently in theaters or something coming soon, either way it’ll be a nice game of cinematic Russian roulette. Last night, as I sat on the couch with my aching tummy, I watched “Knocked Up” on HBO (even though I have it on DVD) and I realized, as I always do when I see something Judd Apatow has written and directed, that

Bond Hottie in Clash of the Titans Remake

Gemma Arterton, seen most recently in “Quantum of Solace” as Strawberry Fields, is joining the cast of the “Clash of the Titans” remake as the demi-godess Io, set for release (according to in 2010.  Ms. Arterton is fantasticly beautiful and it was a shame she got douched by motor oil in Daniel Craig’s second outing as 007. When I was a kid, I loved the original “Clash of the Titans” with Harry Hamlin and Burges Meredith. I watched it

What’s in your Netflix Queue?

I have recently – as in four months ago – discovered the joy of Netflix. It’s nice to make a big list of movies (I have 137 in my queue as of right now) and re-prioritize whenever the mood strikes. Since Tuesdays generally are DVD release days, I figure every Monday I’ll share the top ten movies in my queue. Feel free to mock, comment and share your Netflix queues. Doubt Donkey Punch Dark Matter Splinter The Spirit Paramore: The

Dragonball: Evolution Opening Date Change

I have zero desire to see “Dragonball: Evolution,” so the news of an opening date change from who-knows-what to April 10th, 2009 is about exciting as fantasizing about Chow Yun-Fat’s dirty fingernails in “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.” What would be exciting is if this movie actually had something to do with a dragon’s balls. Dare to dream!

Monsters vs. Aliens Nabs Weekend Box Office

DreamWorks “Monsters vs. Aliens” was the weekend’s box office champion after raking in $58 million in ticket sales. The CGI animated sci-fi comedy was trailed by “The Haunting in Conneticut” ($23,010,000), “Knowing” ($14,705,000), “I Love You, Man” ($12,600,000) and “Duplicity” ($7,556,000).   I also expect “Monsters vs. Aliens” to be the winner next weekend, as the only new entries to the box office are the not-screened-for-critics (meaning a 99.9 percent chance of sucking) “Fast & Furious” and the very adult

Monsters vs. Aliens (****)

When it comes to animated movies, Pixar (and likewise Disney) has set the gold standard with pretty much anything they spit out. Whether it’s “Toy Story” (1995) or “Wall-E” (2008), the CGI animation studio in Emeryville, California is a lock for critical acclaim and box office success. They could make a movie about a pair of talking underpants and people would stream to the cinema to soak it up. Even with all glory, laud and honor going to the studio
