Warner Bros. just announced that actress Diane Lane will be cast as Martha Kent in the new SUPERMAN movie reboot directed by Zack Snyder.

Starring: Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Allison Mack, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman Writer: Anne Cofell Saunder Director: Christopher Petry Network: The CW, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: February 25, 2011 With SMALLVILLE being so uber-serious during its final season, when it decides to take it easy for a week and engage in its playful side, the result is the incredibly bizarro (and occasionally enjoyable) “Fortune.” Taking a HUGE riff on THE HANGOVER, the episode starts off with the beginning of the bachelor and bachelorette parties for Clark (Tom Welling) and Lois (Erica Durance). After drinking some roofie-like wine (a spell was […]Read On »

Starring: Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Allison Mack, Justin Hartley Writer: Jordan Hawley Director: Morgan Beggs Network: The CW, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: February 5, 2011 Look who’s finally back. It’s seems like a long time since we last saw a new SMALLVILLE episode, right? What’s the deal with that? No matter, Clark (Tom Welling) and company are back, and I have to say, I was impressed. Then again, if SMALLVILLE had screwed up this episode, there would have been no hope for the season. It’s the comeback episode after a long break. It’s based off of one of the […]Read On »

Well, now we know: The two villains that will square off against Christian Bale’s gravelly-voiced Gotham City crusader in the third Christopher Nolan-helmed Batman film DARK KNIGHT RISES will be Catwoman (purrfect) and Bane (snap!) played by Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy, respectively. With a fan base not only devoutly dedicated to the many years of continuity in the Bat-comics, but impressed by Nolan’s unique, some might even say pseudo-realistic take on the surreal shenanigans of the cowled one and his extensive rogues’ gallery, how exactly do you handle reintroducing both of these antagonists in a way sure to please […]Read On »

Looks like Brandon Routh will be shedding some Kryptonian tears – the actor is no longer the Man of Steel in the new SUPERMAN movie currently dubbed SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL. The new Zack Snyder directed reboot (which will be produced by THE DARK KNIGHT’s Christopher Nolan) has picked a new Clark Kent/Superman and his name is Henry Cavill (best known for Showtime’s THE TUDORS). Following on the heels of British actor Andrew Garfield playing Spider-Man in Sony’s superhero reboot, Cavill also happens to be a Brit. Cavill was on the short list to play Superman many years ago when […]Read On »

Warner Bros. announced today that Anne Hathaway will strap on the leather to play Selena Kyle, aka Catwoman in the Christopher Nolan directed THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Frankly, it couldn’t be a better fit. She’s got the feline grace and the acting chops to pull it off. Meanwhile, Tom Hardy’s role in the movie has been confirmed too. He’s playing the villainous Bane. You’d think Warner’s would have split the two announcements, but hey, at least we have an idea and a direction of where the new Nolan film is heading. What do you think? Love the choices? Hate them? […]Read On »

The X List: Assignment X’s Best of 2010 – Movies

TRUE GRIT poster | ©2010 Paramount Pictures

The best films of 2010, in the opinion of this reviewer (who still has to catch up with THE FIGHTER, WINTER’S BONE and several other acclaimed releases): THE SOCIAL NETWORK Normally, people working with computers is one of the most boring things that can be put on screen. Director David Fincher, writer Aaron Sorkin and an across-the-board brilliant cast headed up by Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake leave the computers in the background and illustrate the dynamics of friendship and ambition in a way that is remarkably compelling and universal. The fact that the film is about the […]Read On »
