Fox News Reviewer Fired Over ‘Wolverine’ Movie Leak

When someone from the inside leaked a workprint of the new “Wolverine : Origins” movie a couple of weeks ago, most movie review sites refused to watch it. But Fox News reviewer, Roger Friedman not only watched the film,but also took it a step further and reviewed it. What makes it worse is the movie wasn’t even a complete piece,and had a lot of special effects missing from it.

Some of my sources say that it was missing like several million dollars worth of reshoots that would smooth out the film, and the special effects in it were temporary or not there at all which would make his ill fated attempt at a review of this movie worthless, anyways. Read more »

The “We Made You” song is the first single to be released off his upcoming album entitled “Relapse”. It also features a chorus that is sung by a soulful newcomer, Charmagne Tripp . This is his first solo single in the past five years. It is produced by none other than Dr. Dre.

Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse” aired it’s latest episode entitled “Needs” last night,and it was no let down . In fact it took me for quite a spin.The Dollhouse decided to test four of the actives : Echo,Victor / Lubov, Sierra,Melle,and one other one,but he’s wasn’t important. I think he was just filler since his test ended at the beginning of the episode, and there’s no cast info for him .So Echo and the others to complete their test. The “Dollhouse” reinstalled their same, original personality that they had when they first entered the Dollhouse except Read more »

Also known for his 1976 role as Kelly in the “Bad News Bears” and Dukes in Will Ferrell’s “Semi Pro”, Jackie Earle Haley is going to be taking over the role that made Robert Englund famous back in the 1980’s as the infamous Freddy Krueger who terrorizes high school kids in their dreams. I’m glad to hear he got the part. I thought he was excellent in “Watchmen” as Rorschach,and I just recently learned he was that Kelly character in the old 1976 “Bad News Bears” movie,but as soon as I was told he was in the “Bad News Bears” movie, I knew it was him. It brought back a bit of nastalgia for me. I used to love watching the “Bad News Bears” as a kid. He was in the acting business up until the early 90’s,1993 to be exact. Then left for a while ,and made a come back in 2006 by playing a pedophile in Todd Field’s “Little Children”.

This latest installment of “Nightmare on Elm Street” is New Line Cinema’s attempt at a reboot of the franchise, and will be directed by Samuel Bayer. Read more »

Judd Apatow Productions To Bring ‘Ghostbusters 3’ Into Reality

Well, it looks like it’s almost official that there is going to be a Ghostbusters 3 movie, and for months Jud Apatow, who recently produced Adam Sandler’s new movie coming out in the summer entitled, “Funny People” had been rumored to be the producer of the resurrection of the 1980’s Ghostbusters’ Franchise. Now, it looks like it is really close to being a reality since Production weekly has started to mention it by stating that Apatow productions would be in charge.

There are no known names or actors for the new Ghostbusters’ film as of yet, but I can say that I would love to see this get done especially with all the new technological advances in film making since the 80’s when the first two Ghostbusters’ films were produced. I think it would be really interesting to see what they can do with it. If the film does get green lighted which I think it will, they will start shooting it in the fall of 2009. We’ll definitely keep you posted.
