News of Halo 4 Gives Me Renewed Hope for Halo Movie

I can’t recall how many times over the last two years I’ve written about possible rumblings and rumors regarding the locked-in-development-hell Halo movie. You remember the Halo movie, right? Yeah, remember when Halo was a big deal, when it actually had some momentum? It was in 2005-2006, at the peak of Halo 2 and its eye-popping popularity on XBOX Live, and right before the release of Halo 3 in 2007. The buzz was high and Peter Jackson – yes, the

Alamo Drafthouse Simultaneously B-Slaps and Mocks Movie Texter

There is nothing in the world of cinema that boils my beans more than bad movie manners. The movie theater is a sacred temple of entertainment and there are hordes of mindless miscreants in every screening that feel it their God-given right – just because they paid $8 (or more) – to talk, text and play games on their precious cell phones during a screening. It’s not so much the act that sends me into a hot rage, but the thoughtlessness and

Breaking Dawn Teaser Trailer Reveals Bed-Breaking Freaky Time

It’s been a year since we’ve had to commune, by choice or force, with Edward (Robert Pattinson), Bella (Kristen Stewart), Jacob (Taylor Lautner) and the whole Forks, Washington crew, including the pasty-skinned, pissy Volturi creepies from Italy, whom we’ve seen briefly in the last two films. But hold on tight, Twihards, because The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 hits theaters on November 18, 2011 and the first preview hit the web earlier in the week.  You can watch

Shark Night 3D Poster and Trailer, While Cool, Does Not Redeem Surefire Crapfest

Sharks are cool. 3D is lame. And both together, as last summer’s Piranha 3D proved, will not make good bedfellows. But Hollywood doesn’t care. Shark Night 3D has six pack Abercrombie abs, bikini wedgies, boobies, blood, explosions, hillbillies, wakeboarding, booze and CGI 3D sharks to make the under 25, backwards-hat-brigade of douchebags squeal like they’re warming up their $1 bills for a trip to Vegas. David R. Ellis, the director and man behind 2006’s Snakes on a Plane, isn’t looking

Donald Sutherland cast as President Snow

The wait is finally over… and Donald Sutherland will play President Snow in next years film The Hunger Games. Snow is the evil autocratic ruler over the Twelve Districts of Panem, and uses violence to control and intimidate any who oppose his leadership. Snow was the last lead character to be cast, and one reason the casting group may have taken longer to cast Snow is because he simply doesn’t have a large role in the first book of the series. While I assume that

The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo Looks Absolutely Fincheriffic

Even though will show you I’ve been stuck on page 225 of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo since February 20, I must admit, after seeing this bootleg trailer for director David Fincher’s forthcoming movie, I’m a little more apt to put down my Call of Duty: Black Ops controller and put my shoulder to the wheel and push through the last 365 pages. The trailer below makes it look like butt-puckering goodness from page one to page 590,
