Blu-ray Review: Harmless Family Entertainment of ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’

29 December 2011 9:51 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – I have to admit that I went into my review of “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” expecting to feel torture not unlike when I suffered through “Yogi Bear” or “Gulliver’s Travels.” Live-action family entertainment has been the other side of the coin to the influx of quality animated entertainment. For every Pixar, there’s a “Chipwrecked.” For every “How to Train Your Dragon,” there’s a “Zookeeper.” To that end, I found “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” totally harmless, mostly because Jim Carrey gives it his all and brings enough manic glee to the proceedings to keep it from falling flat.

Blu-Ray Rating: 2.5/5.0

Like So many family films, “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” is about a selfish, wounded man learning to be a good father. It’s remarkable how many writers work out their issues with their parents through family films. The dad in question is, of course, Mr. Popper (Carrey), a man whose distant, »

'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' movie reboot stalls?

27 December 2011 7:14 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The future of the proposed Buffy The Vampire Slayer film reboot is in doubt. Warner Bros. announced in November 2010 that it would move forward with the remake, which would not involve original Buffy writer Joss Whedon. The film company instead hired Yes Man screenwriter Whit Anderson to pen the script. The reboot has now reportedly stalled because Anderson has chosen to exit the project, sources told the Los Angeles Times. A source close to the project claimed: "[Anderson] came in with some great ideas and she had reinvented some of the lore and it was pretty cool but in the end there just wasn't enough on the page." Warner Bros. and the producers are apparently searching for (more) »

Disappointing Debuts From 'Sherlock,' 'Alvin' Sequels

18 December 2011 11:00 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

While franchise titles did claim the top three spots at the box office this weekend, it wound up being a very mixed frame for sequels. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked both tallied solid grosses, though they were notably down from their predecessors. On the other hand, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol had a robust start in limited release. Even with all of these established brands entering the marketplace, the Top 12 wound up down roughly 13 percent from the same period last year. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows opened to an estimated $40.02 million, which is way down from the original Sherlock Holmes's $62.3 million over Christmas weekend in 2009. In what could be an even more concerning comparison, the movie wound up lower than Tron Legacy's $44 million start at the same time last year. That's shocking, considering Game of Shadows opened just two years »

Geek Girl Navigating the World – Avoiding the dreaded “Chick Flick”

Geek Girl Navigating the World – Avoiding the dreaded “Chick Flick”

The movies a person likes to watch can be a very personal thing.  Not everyone is as comfortable with their guilty pleasures as I am, which I can understand to a certain extent. Still, it seems to me that if, for some reason, watching the Smurfs makes you happy then go right ahead.  To the best of my knowledge watching the Smurfs has never hurt anyone and the word Smurf is kind of fun to say (not to the extent that the Smurfs say it, obviously, because that honestly gets really old really fast) especially if done in moderation.

One thing that I don’t understand, though, is women who insist on making guys watch chick flicks.  There’s not a single guy that I know who’s going to really enjoy the thing, and I have enough guy friends »

Actress Zooey Deschanel's dreams of playing rock legend Janis Joplin on the big screen have been dashed - the project has been shelved. The Yes Man star, who is tasting U.S. TV success as the leading lady in hit new comedy New Girl, has revealed The Gospel According to Janis is no longer in development - and she's upset because she has spent years preparing for the Penelope Spheeris film. Deschanel tells The Hollywood Reporter, "I've been working on her scratchy voice with a vocal coach for three years and now we've found out it just isn't going to happen. That's a lot of time to spend prepping for a movie." Pink and Amy Adams are also attached to Joplin biopics, but neither of those films are currently in development. © WENN »

Trader's Goldman Sachs comments spark BBC hoax claims

27 September 2011 10:27 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Alessio Rastani, who claimed on BBC News 'I dream of another recession', is not a 'Yes Man' – but he could be an honest trader

He caused outrage with his comments on the global economic meltdown claiming "governments don't rule the world, Goldman Sachs rules the world".

But is independent stock market trader Alessio Rastani, interviewed on the BBC News channel on Monday, all he appears to be?

Twitter was alive with suggestions that Rastani was in fact one of the "Yes Men", a band of "identity correction" artists who pass themselves off as the corporations you love to hate.

When asked by the Guardian, via email, to respond to the allegation that he a member of the prank group, Rastani chose his words carefully. But the BBC's own investigation has concluded that Rastani is authentic.

The BBC has previously fallen victim to the hoaxers who, according to their website, »
