    Steven Spielberg to make ‘Ready Player One’

    Of all the things that Steven Spielberg has attached himself to as a director over the last decade or so, nothing seems like more perfect of a fit than his latest choice. Earlier today reports emerged having him choosing to sign on to direct the highly anticipated adaptation of the cult novel Ready Player One […] More

    Adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s Novel ‘Lullaby’ Coming?

    I always get a kick out of seeing a potentially un-filmmable novel make the move towards the big screen. Today I discovered the latest incarnation of this, as one of my favorite Chuck Palahniuk novels Lullaby has gotten optioned.

    If you’re like me, you probably spent some time after seeing American Sniper (which now is officially an Academy Award winning film) wondering what the movie would have been like if David O. Russell or especially Steven Spielberg had tackled Jason Hall‘s script instead of Clint Eastwood, as previously rumored. Well, we might yet get to see […] More

    Film Review: Fifty Shades of Grey (★)

    I completely understand why a movie adaptation of the literary (a term I should probably be using loosely) phenomenon Fifty Shades of Grey exists. I even understand why this particular version was made. What I don’t understand is who this film is for. Far too tame to truly titillate as anything erotic, yet too out […] More
