Movie News Today

The "Spiderman" reboot continues to befuddle me as to whether or not I should be excited or not. If Zooey Deschanel joins the cast, I'm in.

The great Wes Anderson has a new film in the works and it looks like the cast will include Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, and of course Bill Murray. Most people either love or hate Anderson and I am fully entrenched in the "love" camp. This sounds AWESOME.

Cameron Crowe, another favorite director around here, has brought Patrick Fugit into the fold of his next movie, "We Bought a Zoo." Fugit isn't a big name but he did play the lead role in Crowe's biographical rock 'n roll drama "Almost Famous," which ranks high on my top 10 list. Crowe has a knack for getting the absolute most out of his actors to the point that many of them can never replicate the success with another person behind the camera so here's hoping we get some chemistry revisited.

IFC discusses the work of some self-important critic whose criticism of "Anchorman" illustrates why I have a general distrust for most mainstream critics.
