Another Transformers casting rumour

Apparently there is a second name attached to the new Transformers film, and it's Nelix from Star Trek Voyager, otherwise known as Ethan Phillips. Now this is serious early rumour, so I'm not holding too much water in it, or really much interest. I'm more interested in hearing the voice...

The Studio have spoken on the recent Conan rumours of Arnold Schwarzenneger reprising his role, and what Warner have to say is not all that positive.

Ford hates us Internet types

Harrison Ford doesn't like the Internet, and much less those who copy and paste his quotations all over the place. Funny, I thought he might be really happy for the publicity. No, apparently not, he has some very stern words to say. From IMDB: He says, "The worst thing about...

The Fly remake?

Sometimes remake\revitalisation\revisit\reconception news comes that just makes me mad, and the idea that Hollywood are actively looking to remake The Fly is just horrendously dumb, but they are. From Fangoria through Cinematical comes the news that Director Todd Lincoln who was Writer and Director on The Fly remake, is no...

Britney Spears or Pink as Janis Joplin

Even the possibility that Pink and Britney Spears are in the running for the role as Janis Joplin just staggers belief. What other pop stars could we chuck into the mix?

Which sequels are better than their originals?

Here's an interesting question that's always asked but I never feel really addressed. Which sequels that have been made are actually better than their originals? I'm sure you'd be happy to admit that in most cases the original is never beaten, and it's quite rare to see the sequel do...

The Mistaken US terrorist film

Another "Bourne-like" film is in the works [bounces head off desk] called The Mistaken, but this one takes the form of an American man travelling with his family mistaken as a Terrorist suspect. Personally I would suggest this sounds much more like Road to Guantanamo to me, but without anything...

Inside Man

Film Three Stars
Unlike Lucky Number Slevin, I knew a lot about Inside Man and was really keen to go and see it. After all we're talking Jodie Foster, Willem Dafoe, Clive Owen (dodgy accent or not), Christopher Plummer and Denzel Washington. What a cast, and with direction from Spike Lee it had...

Bringing back the Saturday Serial

I was talking to one of the marketing people over at Ocean Vue Cinemas a while ago about the profits of running a Cinema, and I was genuinely surprised at how little is made in profit by the Cinema on your ticket. We're talking shockingly small amounts, and much as...

Lucky Number Slevin

Film Four Stars
Lucky Number Slevin didn't really hold much attraction for me apart from a couple of names, Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Lucy Liu, and the promise of some slick style. However that was also a big concern of mine, the trailer was playing it like a Snatch type film, and...

New Cars trailer

I must admit that when I saw the first teasers and trailers for Pixars Cars what seems like an age ago, I wasn't impressed. The characterisation of the cars didn't look that strong, the plot seemed weak, and it just seemed to lack something, the recent trailer addressed some of...

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang DVD disappoints

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was a great movie, and I think those who put it down haven't really given it a chance.

Transamerica

Film Four Stars
I knew nothing about Transamerica other than what the title suggested to me, it was a movie about a man wanting to become a lady, that was it. I almost feel embarrassed to say how little I knew about the film since it has been receiving a lot of acclaim....
