Movie News Today

Still haven't gotten my posts back or a response from Blogger. I'm a bit pissed. I backup all my longer posts but DVD Reviews and Movie News columns are exclusive to Blogger. Good to see my trust was in the right place. In any event, the show must go on, I guess, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I was considering a move to Wordpress or something similar. We'll see what happens. Sorry for missing a week in your lives, hope you guys have stuck it out with me.

Christopher Nolan has added Matthew Modine to the cast of "The Dark Knight Rises." Not sure what Modine has been up to recently but Nolan is gold: if he casts you, you're right for the part.

Vin Diesel will produce and star in "The Machine," which sounds a bit like "Soldier" crossed with "E.T." I'm a huge (if slightly ashamed) Diesel fan so even though I'm sure this will be awful, I'll probably see it.

The Independent and Johnny Depp discuss Captain Jack Sparrow.

A Life in Equinox writes about 5 actors who deserve better roles. I completely concur on four of them but could care less about Toni Collette. Good read!

Richard over at Celluloid Zombie delivers an AWESOME list of the top 10 best fight scenes. I. Love. This. List.

My friend over at Marshall and the Movies is back with a review of "Bridesmaids."

"Titanic" will be re-released in 3D in April of next year. It's possible that I hate "Titanic" more than any other "good" movie that's ever been made. I'm not sure, I haven't put together a ranking, but I hate it an awful lot. Maybe the apocalypse guy was off by 10 months or so and it'll take place before this gets released. Blerg.
