‘Rambo 5’ in the works, if you care

Imagine it: an updated but gritty Silver Shamrock company, run out of the back of a […]

‘Heathers’ the TV series? How very.

Someone get me a glass of that Liquid Drano that killed Heather Chandler quick! Variety reports that Fox and Sony TV are developing a “Heathers” TV series. I haven’t looked at a calendar today, but I think it’s been 20 years since “Heathers” came out. So, why make a series about it now? Maybe they think […]

The best horror sequels

Sequels. Love them or hate them, they’re going to be served to us. As we all know, sequels are rarely better than their predecessors, and sometimes they’re just plain bad. But every now and then a second installment (or third or fourth) might rank right up there with the original.  Since Rob Zombie’s “Halloween II” and […]

Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie” ended its first season Monday night. If you missed it, don’t worry, you can catch it again this fall on NBC under another name, “Mercy.” I’ve been seeing the TV spots for the new fall show, and after watching the entire season of “Nurse Jackie,” I’m shocked at all the similarities between […]

‘Avatar Day’ reactions mixed

I’m so bummed. I didn’t get any presents or cards for “Avatar Day.” I’m being silly. Actually, I didn’t get to see the free footage because there wasn’t a theater close enough (and I had concert tickets to Journey and Heart). So I did the next best thing. I raided various blogs and read a […]
