Movie News and Links Today

Cinema Slants reviews Liam Neeson's newest action film, "Unknown", and makes me wish even more that I had even 20 minutes of free time this weekend. Blerg.

FlixChatter reviews one of my favorite underrated movies, "Unbreakable", and reminds me yet again of just how far Shyamalan has fallen. So sad.

Knowing what a nerd I am, it should come as no surprise that I absolutely love "Firefly." Well clearly I'm not alone, as io9 reports, because a group of Browncoats have started a campaign to raise the money to buy the rights to the show so that star Nathan Fillion can begin making new episodes. Love it!

David O. Russell is working with Mark Wahlberg to get another one of the actor's pet projects, "Cocaine Cowboys" into production. About a group of drug runners who rules Miami in the 70s and 80s, the documentary of the same title is one of the most fascinating docs I've ever seen. A truly compelling story that could make an excellent film. 

And in "Crazy Person Says What?" news of the day, Charlie Sheen is trying to assemble all the parts for a fourth "Major League" film. There's no denying the greatness of "Major League." One of the best sports movies ever, if a bit ridiculous (hey, it was the 80s after all). The sequel was moderately entertaining but nowhere near the level of the first. The third was an absolute atrocity. So why, exactly, would be need a fourth installment, especially one that would feature a 57-year old Cerrano (Dennis Haysbert) who just spent the last decade playing the President of the United States? No thanks.
