Movie News Today!

The Chicago Tribune mourns the death of "At the Movies" and laments the handling of the ground breaking show. It is an absolute shame that "ATM" was fumbled the way it was and despite how many websites and reviews I have access to these days, the lack of that Saturday night program is a serious detriment to movie fans across the country. That show (and its hosts) is the reason I do what I do. End rant.

Cinema Blend has posted a video containing a deleted scene from "Return of the Jedi." Look, not to totally nerd out on you but... HOLY CRAP. A.) Why did this not make the final cut? B.) Why did it take this long to see the light of day? C.) If you're not a huge "Star Wars" fan, you don't understand how important this clip is to me, a Lifetime Star Nerd. There is a very good chance this gets removed from YouTube quickly so check it out now.

Oh, and I'm kind of burying the lead here. In case you missed it in the link above... The original "Star Wars" trilogy is headed to Blu Ray next fall. Full on geek out achieved.

I saw "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" tonight but as I'm a bit behind this week, my review is destined to be delayed. Sad. Until I can get it written, check out the review from my pal over at Movie Muse.

The Great Film Retrospective, the movie blog I write with my wife, presents the Pixar classic "The Incredibles." Check it out.
