Trailer: Hey Arnold!: The Movie

What do you get when you cross a live-action version of a kid's cartoon show with an indie romance/thriller? You get Hey Arnold!: The Movie. From the creators of Doug: The Movie comes another parody (or spoof? Lampoon? I don't know) of the...

Lockout wallpapers courtesy of Flixist

Don't you hate it when you can't find any quality desktop wallpapers for a film you're really looking forward to? You only find, like, a poster or sometimes just a pitiful thumbnail image because the PR team handling the movie is severely u...

Looper poster shows us two sides of the same coin

Well, Looper's on it's way to being pushed out of Hollywood's womb, and it's Rian Johnson's baby... and it's a boy. I think. Yeah, that analogy ran out of steam quick. Anyway, Rian Johnson is also the same guy who gave birth to Brick (analo...

Trailer: Zombie Ass

You know, when I was a kid, I thought of all kinds of things that I wanted to be when I grew up. I wanted to be a cartoonist, a famous painter, a prolific writer... but then I've always had high aspirations for myself... And yet here I am,...

Back to the Future remake imminent?

I must be lucky to be able to post news about two of my favorite movies two days in a row. Yesterday it was the Child's Play remake and possible sequel, now it's a... remake of Back to the f*cking Future?!?!  I'm sorry, but whenever I ...

Child's Play remake AND sequel being planned now

Wow, so the Child's Play remake has been in the infamous Development Hell for a while now, huh? I remember hearing about this thing as far back as four years ago, and yet it's been pushed back further and further. Over the past couple of ye...

Ryan Gosling looks all bloody in Only God Forgives

Get ready to quiver, ladies, because Ryan Gosling is lookin' sexy in Nicolas Winding Refn's (the director of Drive) next outing, Only God Forgives, which is sure to allude to... whoa, wait, did I say "sexy"? I meant he's looking like he jus...

Chevy Chase & Dan Aykroyd plan to write new comedy

Review: The Hunger Games

The film industry nowadays is utterly saturated with novel adaptations, especially those that cater to the tweens-to-teens demographic. Twilight is perhaps one of the more infamous examples of this, yet it has undoubtedly shown us the finan...

John Carter fanbase demands a sequel, makes a trailer

Having seen John Carter, I can attest to its enjoyability, both as a film critic and a sci-fi film fanatic. It may not be of the same ilk as, say, The Matrix, but it was quirky, fun and had a lot of heart. I haven't read the books, nor did ...

Images from Hotel Transylvania terrify (in a bad way)

Everybody likes to rag on Adam Sandler these days. He's come from making his career with jokes to having his whole career turn into a joke. It's not that he's not funny, it's that he makes really bad decisions. What's worse is that he's try...

Alex Winter talks Bill & Ted 3

There have been various rumors about the proposed Bill & Ted sequel the past year or so. At first it just seemed like Alex Winter (who plays Bill in the movies) was just trying to cling to a lost dream of making the movie made. But with...

Bryan Cranston to star in Get A Job

Keanu Reeves has read the Bill & Ted 3 script

...and he loves it, apparently. He reportedly said that he and Alex Winter (Bill) are "trying to put it together" and that it's "a good script." It's kind of a contradiction in terms, because if the script is supposedly finished, but they'r...

Trailer: Frankenweenie

Tim Burton's latest movie seems to offer up some classic stop-motion animation goodness we haven't seen since The Corpse Bride. I always think it's interesting that most The Nightmare Before Christmas fans seem to be under the impression t...

Buy a $55,000 Light Cycle from Tron: Legacy

Do people still care about this movie? I guess so. I mean, they are planning a sequel, supposedly, right? Though, not for a few years off, probably. Well, if you were that enamored with the admittedly cool and cyberpunk-flavored light cycle...

Trailer for Movie: The Movie probably not a trailer

Uhhh... So, okay, Jimmy Kimmel Live is responsible for making "I'm f*cking Matt Damon!" a household phrase, and it looks like the show is about to reproduce that magic with Movie: The Movie, one of the silliest effing things I've ever seen...

Woody Allen's Bullets Over Broadway coming... to Broadway

Nick Offerman joining Diablo Cody's directorial debut

Ahhh, it's great to see Nick Offerman's career take off. From his badass role as Ron Swanson in Parks and Recreation to his, uh, cameo in 21 Jump Street... and as that random goon in Sin City, I guess... well, in any case, he's getting more...

The Raven looks positively rustic in these new images

Well, regardless of how the trailer for The Raven made me feel, these images are giving me renewed hope that this film will be at the very least a brooding, atmospheric romp through the world of Edgar Allan Poe as seen through John Cusack-t...

Flixist Awards 2011: Best Supporting Actor

Trailer: Sadako 3D (Ringu 3D)

Heyyy, look, it's a Ringu sequel following suit with the latest trend in putting D at the end of the 3rd in the series' title. To be honest, it's getting kind of old and not really all that clever anymore. Also, they must have messed up, b...

Amy Adams to star in Object of Beauty

Steve Martin is/was a great comedian. You could say he peaked comedically in the 80's with ¡Three Amigos!, All of Me, Little Shop of Horrors and Planes, Trains and Automobiles. The 90's were basically a blur for Steve, riffing off old...

Back to the Future going to Broadway?

Now, I'm no expert on Broadway musicals, but when I saw that Back to the Future was in talks to head to Broadway, I just HAD to snatch it up. Apparently, Robert Zemeckis (recently of dead-eyed-3D-animation fame) is working with his old writ...

About Jamie R Stoneone of us since 9:13 AM on 06.28.2011

My personal career goal is to finish up my graphic novel that I've been toiling away on for a few years now with my best friend and partner, Brenda Gonzalez. Beyond that, I would love to get involved in film-making as well as video game design, but that’s a long-term goal. I must first build myself up from the sheer sweat from my brow.

I’m a firm believer that our personalities determine what we end up doing. As such, I am a Freelance Artist. I have been called a talented individual before, but I see it as more my drive to be talented. I am motivated to making the best possible thing to whatever is in my mind's eye. If I can match that even slightly, I will feel that I have succeeded.
