Michel Gondry, the movie’s director, has now filmed a spoof (or as the characters in the movie call it– swede) of his own movie’s trailer, [...]

If blood and guts is your thing, “Rambo” has what you’re looking for in spades. The fourth Rambo film is a sanguinary bonanza that is without a doubt bloodier than “Grindhouse,” “30 Days of Night,” or “Sweeney Todd.” The film opens with a montage of newsreel clips depicting the genocidal violence occurring in Burma , [...]

Ok, if this is true, then I will erase all skepticism about the upcoming “The Hobbit,” produced by BUT NOT DIRECTED BY Peter Jackson.  Guillermo del Toro is the absolute perfect second choice, having navigated the tricky waters of childhood/adult fantasy in the masterpiece that was Pan’s Labyrinth. The man knows his stuff, and if you’ve [...]

So, friends of Scene-Stealers, it’s entirely true, I voluntarily subjected myself to the new “Rambo” movie this weekend and as such, you can expect my print review shortly. However, while I attempt to sort out that multidirectional action and issue-filled cupcake of obscene cinema violence, I figured now would be a pretty bad-ass moment for [...]

“No Country for Old Men” won the Best Ensemble Cast Award at last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, which many would say extends its lead over the other Oscar contenders for best Picture. But, strangely,  ”No Country” was the only film nominated for Best Ensemble Cast that is even nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. “There Will [...]

I know this is lame to post the whole damn article, but I really found this interesting. Heath Ledger was a talented actor (“Brokeback Mountain,” “Monster’s Ball”) , and its very tragic that he died so young. But since that he is also the Joker in the upcoming “The Dark Knight,” and an entire marketing [...]

Abrams is releasing new photos and a teaser trailer of his prequel re-boot of the “Star Trek” franchise, scheduled for release this Christmas. [...]

J.D. posted his list of Movies About Musicians two weeks ago, and Eric just couldn’t resist doing a Top 10 Giant Monster list in honor of “Cloverfield.” So this week, Eric returns with his response to J.D.’s list of real or imagined musicians. This is a no-repeat list, so Eric excluded some too-obvious choices and [...]

Two weeks ago, J.D. issued his list of the best movies that revolved around musicians, real or imagined. It is a pretty broad category, and I felt that there were numerous things that he left out that I would have put in. Two of the best musician-oriented films I’ve ever seen came out this year, [...]
