We See Chick Flicks: “Let Me In”

Starring Chloe Moretz and Kodi Smit-Mcphee
Directed by Matt Reeves

You’ve probably heard all the buzz and controversy about “Let Me In,” an American adaptation of the Swedish vampire flick “Let the Right One In.” Those who love the original swear that “Let Me In” can’t be half as good. I have to say that I really can’t recall any part of “Let the Right One In,” even though I saw it about a year ago. Maybe that says that it really wasn’t all that remarkable to me? Or maybe it was such an intense horror film that my brain has safely blocked it out of my memory for good reason? I don’t know, and I’m not going to get into the debate of which one is better. All I know is “Let Me In” had me completely captivated from beginning to end, and I haven’t been able to get the film off my mind since I saw it on Monday night. Keep reading »

Does Doing A Horror Movie Mean You’re Over?

Many of Hollywood’s heavyweights got their start in horror flicks: Jamie Lee Curtis (“Halloween”), Johnny Depp (“A Nightmare on Elm Street”), Jennifer Aniston (“Leprechaun”), Leonardo DiCaprio (“Critters 3″). But while watching the really mediocre-looking trailer for Renee Zellweger‘s new movie “Case 39,” it was hard not to think, My, how far you’ve fallen. It made me start to wonder if doing a horror movie after you’ve already established yourself is career suicide. Is it the ultimate signal of your decline into obscurity? Let’s review the facts … Keep reading »

Diablo Cody Teams Up With Charlize Theron For Her Next Flick, “Young Adult”

OK, OK, so “Jennifer’s Body” bombed. But Diablo Cody, the Oscar-winning screenwriter behind “Juno,” is the kind of lady who dusts herself off to try again. Our girl Diablo is teaming up with “Juno” director Jason Reitman again for “Young Adult,” a screenplay she has written about a woman who returns to her hometown and tries to reconnect with the guy she once dated. He’s married with a kid, however, and could care less about her popping up in his life again. Scrumptious Patrick Wilson will allegedly play the male lead, with comedian Patton Oswalt as his schlumpy best friend; Charlize Theron is confirmed to play the female lead who is chasing after her old guy. Damn, the makeup department’s really gonna have to uggify Charlize to make that plot believable. I don’t know a single surburban dad would who wouldn’t drop everything to worship at her feet if she sashayed back in town. Anyway, go, go, go, Diablo! [SlashFilm] Keep reading »

Deja Vu All Over Again: Courteney Cox In “Scream 4″

The cast of “Scream 4” makes us want to squeal—the flick stars Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Kristen Bell, and Anna Paquin, plus has Neve Campbell reviving her role as Sidney Prescott while Courteney Cox is returning as tabloid reporter Gale Weathers. We’ve got a while to wait until it opens in theaters—until April—but the first image of the film has been released. I find it pretty interesting that even though the flick stars all these so-hot-right-now stars, they decided to go with Courteney being chased by the masked murderer for the first pic. Because, haven’t we seen that before? [EW] Keep reading »

Ryan Reynolds And Other Celebs Who’ve Been Buried Alive In Movies


There are good movies, there are bad movies, and then there are movies where people get buried alive. Actually, there are a lot more types of movies but, hey, it sort of has a ring to it, right? Anyway, Ryan Reynolds recently opened up about his extremely closed-in role in “Buried,” a flick about an American in Iraq who wakes up to find himself six feet under. The actor had to spend every day of a 17-day shoot in the box. “I definitely did not look good,” Reynolds said, referring to his appearance after emerging from the darkness. [People]

The “Buried” star isn’t the first actor to be buried alive in a movie. More after the jump. Keep reading »

New “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hollows” Trailer


I know no matter how much excitement I express about this new “Deathly Hollows” trailer, there will be about 10,000 Harry Potter fans who are more overwhelmed than I am. So, instead, I will just say after seeing an appearance by my favorite Brit, Bill Nighy, a bouquet of bogus Harrys, and a whole bunch of Voldermort, I am pretty pumped to pull out my Hedgwig costume again and go see “Deathly Hollows” in November. The trailer is calling the next installment “epic,” and based on what they are dishing out, I have a hard time disagreeing. Are you excited to see “Deathly Hollows”? Keep reading »

Chris Noth Blames Us For The End Of “Sex And The City”

“It’s over. The franchise is dead. The press killed it. It’s like all the critics got together and said, ‘This franchise must die.’ Because they all had the exact same review. It’s like they didn’t see the movie.”

—Chris Noth reveals that there won’t be a “Sex and the City 3″ since number two was received so poorly. He thinks a conspiracy is what caused the across-the-board bad reviews, but we have an alternate theory: The movie just really, really sucked. [NY Post]

“I Think We’re Alone Now”: Tiffany Documentary Alert!

My most cherished possession as a 7-year-old was my autographed cassette tape of Tiffany’s self-titled album. It read “Best of luck! Tiffany.” My dad knew someone at the local radio station who hooked it up. I slept with it under my pillow for days. Yeah, I was a strange child. I wonder what happened to that, by the way? I lost track of it when I turned 9. But I digress. The important thing for you to know is that there is a new documentary out called “I Think We’re Alone Now” about Tiffany and her “super fans. Read: obsessive stalkers. Looks like these peeps saved their autographed cassette tapes. In fact, they probably still sleep with them under their pillows. I need to see this, STAT.

Less Hair Down There = More Merkin Makin’ In Hollywood

Now that having hair down there is so passe for women—and even for men—merkins are the new hot prop on Hollywood sets, especially for anything that takes place before the year 2000. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, that’s OK. I didn’t know what a merkin was until Kate Winslet won the Oscar for her role in “The Reader” and talked about her merkin non-stop.

Trailer Park: “Easy A,” “The Town,” “Catfish,” “Leaves of Grass,” “Jack Goes Boating,” “The Freebie”

We are merely days away from autumn and thank goodness for that, because along with the sweaters and leaves comes some quality movies. This might be the first time ever that I want to see every single movie that is coming out (except for the creepy animated wolf movie I conveniently left off of the list). There’s comedy, intrigue, romance, and a lot of amazing actors who’ve been on the down-low for a bit. There’s the eagerly awaited “Easy A,” the Ben Affleck-directed “The Town,” reality thriller “Catfish,” and Edward Norton‘s newest, “Leaves of Grass.” Also: Philip Seymour Hoffman learns to swim in “Jack Goes Boating” and Dax Shepard and his wife make a deal with “The Freebie.” Go see a frickin’ movie. And call your mother—she worries. Keep reading »
