The Social Network named Best Picture by Online Film Critics Society

As a member of the Online Film Critics Society it is my duty and pleasure to vote in the OFCS Awards to honor the greatest achievements in the movies.  This year’s winners probably won’t surprise anyone, and all are deserving of such high recognition.  However, I think the only winner I voted for was Hailee Steinfeld for […]

“Lost” co-creator Damon Lindelof delighted Fox executives Saturday by turning in an apparently very good script for Ridley Scott’s “Alien” prequel.

When it was first announced that David Fincher, the man behind pitch black films like “Se7en,” “Fight Club” and “Zodiac,” would be turning his attention to the story of how Facebook was developed it raised a lot of eyebrows — including mine.

Fox Also Developing a ‘20,000 Leagues’ Movie; Ridley and Tony Scott Attached

Hollywood is notorious for its bandwagon tendencies. Notice how many vampire flicks surfaced immediately following the success of the “Twilight” films? This time around the trend centers on Jules Verne’s classic undersea adventure, “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.” And since it’s in the public domain, studios won’t have to embarrass themselves with cheap and transparent […]
