Van Damme Does ‘Acting type of film’

If you are like me (and you’re not so don’t even try) then you were all kinds of concerned about the writers strike and it’s impact on the quality of upcoming films. But, just announced, there is reason for hope that not all is lost: Scripts now become accessible to Jean Claude Van Damme. This …

Transformers 2

Seems like the city of brotherly love is about to get a whole lot of awesome. Rumor has it that Michael Bay will touch down in Philadelphia to film the second installment of ‘Transformers’ this summer. This makes perfect sense. I have often said that Megatron is the Benjamin Franklin of our time. They both …

Rosemary Has Another Baby

Looks like we have another remake on our hands. Platinum Dunes is talking with Paramount to remake the 1968 horror movie ‘Rosemary’s Baby’. Clearly this is a great thing since Roman Polanski’s film was completely garbage (minus the “garbage” plus the “awesome”) and deserves the quality and care of a Platinum Dunes remake. It’s like …

Tim Allen to Direct (… to video?)

The problem with always being in movies that make viewers see ‘have a grizzly bear gnaw on your genitals’ as a better alternative to watching the movie is that you being to think that making a film probably easy to do. So, with this in mind, and the success of ‘Wild Hogs’, ‘Jungle 2 Jungle’, …

Wahlberg Pops A DiCaprio In Your …

Rumors are a flying at the posibility of Mark Wahlberg and Leonardo DiCaprio doing a live action movie based on the documentary ‘Cocaine Cowboy.’ These rumors are flying despite the fact that DiCaprio has said that they are untrue.

‘Love Guru’ Trailer

‘Get Smart’ Gets Stupid

See how I toyed with that title? I’m a wordsmith. I’m like Shakespeare and Snoop Dogg combined into one colossal literary genius. Another trailer for ‘Get Smart’ has been unleashed without my consent. How does Steve Carell, playing Maxwell Smart, keep fooling people into thinking he is funny? He is the dad that nobody finds …

Diablo Cody Learns About Capitalism

To continue the Diablo Cody lovefest ’08 we have going on here at LR, I thought I would share her shocking revelation: people do things for money. Recently given diamond shoes, Diablo (Seriously, do I have to call her that? For the rest of this article she will be called Tiffany.) was appalled to discover …

Johnny Depp Fights Bears

It looks like Johnny Depp is on the verge of signing on to play the lead role, Axel Michelson, in an adaptation of Robert Wilson’s book ‘Crooked Tree.’ I have not read this book because reading is for losers, but I did a quick search for the book online. It is either a fluffy kids …
