Movie News Today

I saw 50/50 again tonight. Seriously, guys. If you haven't seen this movie, I implore you to check it out. It probably only has another week in release so get out there soon. Might have enjoyed it more the second time around.

Splitsider has an entertaining profile of Will Forte (a favorite of mine) in their "Saturday Night's Children" series. Say what you will about Forte (actually, don't; I just said he was one of my favorites, jerk!) but very few people appeared to have as much fun on SNL as he did.

My friend Terrence over at ScarletSp1der gives us a nice look into the future of television with a preview of some upcoming shows that look pretty sweet. Nerds unite!

Flix Chatter has a guest post that looks at five big budget films that didn't quite meet expectations. It should be noted that this list includes The Alamo (2004), one of my very favorite films but one that I always say cannot possibly be enjoyed from beginning to end by anyone who is not a Texan.

Nick over at Anomalous Material writes a really solid piece on the value of the "Manic Pixie Dream Girl." Check it out to see what I'm talking about. Well done, Nick!

Want to make me weep like a tiny child? Just put together a trailer that involves the parent-child relationship, 9/11, Tom Hanks in a clearly serious role, and a U2 song and BOOM! You've got a weepy Brian. If the studio hinted at the death of a beloved pet I'd be an absolute wreck right now. Enjoy the trailer for Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close which has a terrible title but looks devastatingly good.


  1. Hey thanks for the mention man, appreciate it!!

  2. I too appreciate the mention!

    So glad you watched 50/50 again too! doesn't make me feel so nerdy for seeing it 3 times! hahaha.

    My apologies for my delay over at IEatFilms. I have been uber busy but will be contributing soon.

    Have a great weekend and thanks again.
