Movie News Today

Collider discusses Trent Reznor's near-perfect score for "The Social Network." I post a lot of links but seriously, this one is worth clicking on. Excellent points.

IFC takes some tool bag named Larry Fahey to task over his criticism of Roger Ebert. This is a common theme for snooty, ascot-clad critics who only write reviews for themselves and other people who have doctorates in English. Glad to see a mainstream source come to the legend's defense.

Flowtown has a pretty cool chart to illustrate the evolution of the geek. I fall into at least 4 of these categories.

It appears Liam Neeson will continue the strangest resurgence in the history of film by replacing Mel Gibson in a cameo for "The Hangover 2."

Before you read my next sentence I want you to sit down and take a deep breath. Okay. It's possible that George Lucas is preparing to begin work on a third "Star Wars" trilogy. Lucas is already denying this report but it's ground breaking news regardless. I have so much to say about this that I'm going to have to wait for a full column. But wow.
