If You’re Interested in Movie Scripts, Read ScriptShadow

On December 1, 2011, in Movie News, by Stephen Granade

I’m going to depart from my usual breathless, uncritical coverage of movie news to point you to a resource you should be aware of if you’re interested in scripts: ScriptShadow. Five days a week, pseudonymous blogger Carson Reeves reviews scripts that are currently in production and reviews them. Most usefully, he ends his reviews by […]

On November 29, 2011, in Movie News, by Stephen Granade

Posters for the upcoming Men in Black 3 have begun showing up in various cities, and Collider and FirstShowing have pictures of the two posters of Agents J and K. You know, I’m very excited about this movie. It’s a sequel to a movie from ten years ago, itself a sequel that wasn’t very good. […]

Kriss Kross Will Make You 21

On November 18, 2011, in Movie News, by Stephen Granade

Long ago when Fox let TV shows run for more than a handful of episodes, 21 Jump Street was a TV show that starred Johnny Depp and some other actors as cops who, since they all looked young, were undercover at high schools. As you might imagine, this meant that the show tackled after-school-special issues […]

On November 16, 2011, in Movie News, by AlexWhite

Oh, look.  Yet another distinctly Asian role in the upcoming live-action Akira has been offered to a white person.  In a move that surprised no one, Jaume Collet-Sera offered the role of Kei (Kaneda’s Girlfriend) to the exceedingly bored-looking Kristen Stewart.  Maybe this will finally cheer her up.

On November 14, 2011, in Movie News, by AlexWhite

Ayn Rand fans who purchased non-collector’s editions of their DVDs and Blu-Rays of Atlas Shrugged got a rude awakening when they read the description of the film on the back.  Apparently, the movie is an adaptation of a “timeless novel of courage and self-sacrifice.”  Really?  I’m pretty sure we were all unaware of Ayn Rand’s […]
