Smith Pimping His Kids Again

I'm use to remakes. They are as much apart of Hollywood as original content. Every year more and more movies are made that borrow from or are a direct remake of other films and that is fine, but every once in a while a piece of film nostalgia comes up and it gets my blood boiling. This time it's the classic musical "Annie." A film I grew up with, one that was one of my first theatrical experiences. Now its seems that Will Smith has joined up with Jay-Z and Overbrook Entertainment to remake the classic musical with Smith's daughter Willow. Read the full details below...

X-Men: First Class Images

X-Men fans last memory of a movie have been pretty bitter. Let's face it, Brett Ratner shit all over the franchise with 'The Last Stand' and 2009's origin tale of Wolverine did nothing to put fans at ease. Instead it only further aggravated the situation. Now here we are less than 6 months away from another prequel titled "X-Men: First Class" and a plethora of new images are propelling our way. Take a look at the 'First Class' below...

Summit Scripting RED Sequel

One of the most surprisingly fulfilling actions of last year was Summit Entertainment's "RED." A movie that I thought would be just another ho-hum action fiesta that ended up being a highly entertaining romp filled with a cast of aged thespians. I wasn't the only one who enjoyed the AARP filled action and as a result Summit Entertainment has opted to hire screenwriters for a second installment of aged shenanigans. Check out the full report below...

'James' Reunion in Cogan's Trade

Back in 2007 I was blown away by Andrew Dominik's directorial follow up to Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

Fast forward to today and news has broke that a number of actors from 'Robert Ford' have been cast in Dominik's latest effort. A film based on George V. Higgins crime novel "Cogan's Trade."

Best of 2010

2011 is here and I've seen as much as I could in the previous year. Finished 2010 seeing 153 titles that released in U.S. theaters with the very least of a New York and Los Angeles limited release. From that pool of films comes my Top 10 of 2010. Included along with my Top 10 are a couple films that deserve recognition. A combination of honorable mentions and films that have yet to find distribution but are nonetheless powerful films in 2010. So settle in, put on your reading glasses and get ready to see how the year's best stacks up in my eyes after the jump...
