Jason Momoa The Red Road

I’m going to be honest and say that I’ve been one of the “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” haters out there. Everything I’ve heard so far has just turned me off more and more to the film. Well, almost everything–the idea of seeing Wonder Woman and Cyborg in the same film is quite intriguing and I need to see how this comes out. I guess I’m also admitting that I’m a hater that will still go to the movie theater to see this film. At least I can admit it. However, I will say that there is one thing that is making me legitimately want to see it, not  [ Read More ]

Stop the presses! A black actor is playing Dr. Storm! As a black person myself, I thought I’d use that introduction to get people’s attention and to show how a lot of the “Fantastic Four” fanatics probably feel about this news.

Star Trek Into Darkness Poster

Say it isn’t so! One of the most popular duos is splitting up! This time, it’s not a Hollywood marriage, it’s a writing team. It’s Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the writing duo that is behind some of the biggest tentpole movies today. The Hollywood Reporter wrote that the split is amicable and had been in the works for a while, since the two writers have been working on other separate franchises. Orci is still in the world of the “Star Trek” franchise and is also in loose talks to direct the third film–no negotiations have happened, but Orci has director J.J. Abrams’ blessing. Abrams, of course, is directing the  [ Read More ]


“The Big Lebowski,” is more than a cult film; it almost feels like an institution. The film gets quoted ad nauseum and there’s even a huge convention for the film, Lebowski Fest. With such a huge following, some fans might wonder what would happen if there was a sequel to the film.

TMZ recently asked John Tuturro if rumors of a “Lebowski” spin-off starring Tuturro’s character, Jesus “The Jesus” Quintana, could actually be in the works.  [ Read More ]
