King Kong looks pretty cool.

How about "Cocksnakepit" or "Cockpitvipers" or "AspAir"?

Do you ever feel 'not so fresh'?

I knew this looked like a dog.   Funny how virtually all of the earliest (the last couple of months) online pseudo-anonymous screening reviews were positive, but even fanboy Harry Knowles hates it.   I suspect studio hijinks...

One upcoming movie I could really do without is Bad News Bears. I can't imagine how in this cultural climate they are going to keep some of the elements that made the original so irreverent.

Yes, but Jessica is in a tight body suit. Perhaps not theater worthy, but it will get a rent.

Holy crap! Bad News Bears is directed by Richard Linklater? The original screenwriter also wrote the remake (or they simply used the original screenplay). I don't know whether this bodes well or ill. Either it's going to be cool, or someone needs money to pay his crack dealer. Hmm...

Edit: I had written a spirited rebuttal to the idea that they would release anything that could approach the profane original, but apparently the Bad Santa writers "raunch up" Bill--Son of Burt--Lancaster's original screenplay and nearly cross the PG-13 border.

Are you going to post a link to that rebuttal along with your other collected works?

It seems that The Island is a remake of Parts: The Clonus Horror, a stinker from 1979 that was given the MST3K treatment. That does not inspire confidence.

Not just a remake, but an uncredited ripoff.

I haven't seen the trailer yet, but I just got invited to a screening of The 40 Year-Old Virgin tonite.   Yipee!

Well, they want a focus group that might accidentally go to the movie thinking it's a documentary. You should point out to them that you're technically not a virgin, but they probably won't count that one episode at Boy Scout camp against you.
