The Worst Crimes Perpetrated On Movie Franchises By Kids

Apparently, by no sane measure of logic, adding a kid to a movie franchise will liven up a tiring concept and reinvigorate a series for the millions of people who once breathlessly paid to watch the adventures but whom now … Continue reading

Things Overheard: Picture This, Blockbuster Sucks & Steven Spielberg is 60

Birthday wishes go out to Steven Spielberg, my all-time favorite director, who celebrated his 60th birthday on Monday. He may not always make the coolest movies, or even the smartest movies, but his movies are always exceedingly watching, expertly made and laced with the type of magic seldom seen on-screen. In other words, he makes the best movies. Continue reading

Wouldn’t you like Colin Farrell better if he just admitted he bangs anyone that so much as blinks at him (male or female)?

25 Birthday Wishes

I wish that Spielberg, Ford and Lucas would decide NOT to make Indiana Jones 4. Indy rode off into the sunset after finding the Holy freaking Grail. How do you top that? Ford is pushing 65; do they really expect us to suspend our disbelief that this AARP member is still believable whipping Nazi’s and running from boulders and bad blonde actresses? Let it go, guys. Let it go… Continue reading
