According to imdb.com, “The Dark Knight” is now “taking aim” at the U.S. box office champion of all time, James Cameron’s “Titanic.” so far, “The Dark Knight” has taken in a whopping $313 million following last weekend’s record breaking best-second-week performance ever of $75.2 million. “Titanic” is way ahead of everybody else at $600.8 million.

I’m having a bad day. A real bad day. So this is what you get, folks: a list of my top 10 favorite swearing movies. Be it a memorable scene, or an overall, total badass bout of creative cursing, these 10 films popped in my head tonight as I sit here in a terrible funk. [...]


The science vs. faith argument bludgeons the audience and the central mystery has an absurdly silly resolution in this feature-length version of a mediocre TV episode.


A celebration of a genre-busting writer/rabble-rouser and an elegy for a time period when a freak like Hunter S. Thompson could get access to political leaders and actually affect radical change.


In this age of procedural crime dramas like “CSI” and “Law & Order: Endless Spinoff Unit,” it’s surprising that “The X-Files: I Want to Believe” chucks all that out the window and is content to rely almost solely on the same faith vs. science debate that Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) [...]


OK, so after this past week, a lot of things are wrapped up for “The Dark Knight.” 1. The biggest-grossing weekend ever in America: $158 million 2. The biggest non-holiday Monday ever: $24.6 million 3. The fastest movie to gross $100 million ever: 5 days 4. At the conclusion of the film (SPOILER ALERT!), Batman [...]

“Sex and the City,” “The X-Flies,” “Get Smart”: It is clear that adaptations of TV shows, both old and new, are going to continue to be made. The vast majority of them, it seems, are real stinkers (“Bewitched,” starring Will Ferrell) , but Hollywood keeps cranking them out (“The Land of the Lost,” starring Will [...]


I blogged about this site before when they had hilarious Oscar-themed e-cards up and now there are some pretty funny ones inspired by the “X-Files” movie, which comes out this weekend (although you’d never know with all the “Dark Knight” hype out there right now). It’s kind of exciting (I think) that they’ve made another [...]


So many people got tickets to the first screening of this movie tht they gave us 50 more tickets to another screening! Ben Stiller directs “Tropic Thunder,” starring Robert Downey Jr., Jack Black, Steve Coogan, Bill Hader, Jay Baruchel, and Nick Nolte, about an action comedy about a group of self-absorbed actors who set out to make [...]


The insane week of advance ticket giveaways continues. Fourth day, fourth movie. The film is directed by David Gordon Green, the screenplay is by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg from a story by Judd Apatow and Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg. It’s called “The Pineapple Express” and it stars Seth Rogen and James Franco. We have 50 [...]

Eric and J.D. tackle the epic proportions of Christopher Nolan’s second Batman movie “The Dark Knight” in this on-camera review, featuring clips from the much-anticipated movie. Can the film possibly live up to the enormous amount of pre-release hype? You know what we thought of the film– what did you think? Leave your comments below.


With “The Dark Knight” coming out this weekend and all the hype surrounding somebody other than the guy playing the title character, it’s not hard to figure out why this list is timely. Putting a ranking a list of tragic deaths seems kind of tasteless, but that’s the format of this column, so I’ll stick [...]
