REDS 3---the sequel is underway with Jon and Erich Hoeber returning to write the script.




There is no confusion, people are just not noticing what Fisch originally wrote. It was just a small typo of adding a "s" to RED. So I was just cracking a joke about the old Warren Beatty movie.

Ghostbusters -- new Ghostbusters -- have to come and solve the problem."

Method 2 allows for a greater sense of continuity. It would take a tremendous number of posts to slow down the thread generally, unless I'm seriously mistaken. Should there be a problem, a new thread can then be initiated. I say stick with this one until such a time arises.

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS---co-writer Damon Lindelof apologized for the criticized scene of Alice Eve in her underwear, "I copped to the fact that we should have done a better job of not being gratuitous in our representation of a barely clothed actress.

Do not want to make light of something that some construe as misogynistic.What I'm saying is I hear you, I take responsibility and will be more mindful in the future." Lindelof stated there is a specific reason why the controversial scene should be shown, but he refused to clarify the reason by commenting only that it is a "MYSTERY."

UPDATE:

Based on the poll results, I'll return to the old method of posting the movie/tv news probably next week.

To repeat/clarify why I changed posting methods, the movie/tv news was also posted on other message boards. On one of them, it was the #1 most popular thread for years and some jealous posters tried to shut it down by flooding it with bogus posts. They repeated the hijacking the movie/tv news on another board. I shut the movie/tv news down to prevent the hijackers from starting it on FSM.
Because many posters wanted the m/tvn to return, I changed posting formats, etc. so the hijackers would have difficulty in finding it.
as it's been over 100 days, as far as I know, they haven't found it yet, so hopefully the return to the old format works out.
As for the hijackers, I tracked some of them down. One of the leaders is in IT support. Another leader has been banned many times on other boards for constantly attacking other posters and for posting frequently about his hatred of blacks, Jews, gays, hispanics, et al. Ironically, he hides behind many aliases because he is a lawyer and a public official.

Why do they put "4" or "IV" in the titles if they're reboots?

Personally, I'm waiting for him to apologize for Cowboys & Aliens.

HER---Spike Jonze movie underway about a lonely writer who falls in love with his computer's operating system. Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson, Olivia Wilde and Rooney Mara star.

This is a good idea. Not the premise, putting Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson and Olivia Wilde in the same movie.

Maybe they'll botch it less than they did Parker and Jack Reacher? Here's hoping!

It doesn't say it's people's biggest problem with the film, it says it's a criticized scene. And what does it matter how sexy the undies are?

Someone pointed out to me no one had a problem with Uhura in undies or the Orion girl in a bikini. And as they noted Kirk was shirtless. So whats the problem? It's only sexist when it's a white girl?

Thanks for doing what you do, even with the issues of the trolling/hijacking asshats.

Bad movie, bad TV show... third time the charm, maybe?

You know, it's nice you made that a spoiler tag and all... but it would have been nice to know what it was a spoiler tag for seeing as no one would know what not to be spoiled on?

LOL

FRIDAY, MAY 24

NOW YOU SEE ME---Morgan Freeman fell asleep during a tv interview promoting the movie while co-star Michael Caine explained magic tricks used in the movie. Freeman commented tongue-in-cheek, "I wasn't actually sleeping. I'm a beta tester for Google Eyelids. I was merely updating my Facebook page." The movie involves a high-tech group of magicians who pull off a heist on another continent while they're performing their magic show. An FBI agent and a magic debunker team up to catch the crooks. Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg and Isla Fisher also star.




STAR WARS: EPISODE VII---writer Damon Lindelof (LOST, PROMETHEUS, STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS) commented on his close association with JJ Abrams but not being involved with Abrams and EPISODE VII, "When the news broke that Disney was going to do it, people were already tweeting, 'Just keep Damon Lindelof away from it.'. When I saw that, I started realizing that it would be a lose-lose for me in every way shape or form....I didn't know whether or not I wanted to be involved, but I did know that no one wanted me to be involved." Lindelof incurred fan wrath for his controversial ending for LOST.
Lindelof added he might be involved in later Star Wars movies, "The good news was it feels like Disney is going to own Star Wars for a very long time. Hopefully I'll be writing for a couple more years, if not seven, maybe eight or nine. That what I started telling myself."





RETURN TO SENDER---Rosamund Pike (JACK REACHER, DIE ANOTHER DAY), Nick Nolte (48 HRS.) and Shiloh Fernandez (EVIL DEAD) star in this thriller movie about a nurse who goes on a blind date which changes her life forever.

THE AVENGERS 2---Saoirse Ronan commented on rumors she will play Scarlet Witch in the sequel, "I have heard about it and yes, I would. Yeah, of course I would. I love Joss [Whedon]and I love those films, and I love his handle on them and how he portrayed these kinds of superheroes. I think it’s very different from what anyone else has done. So yeah, I’d love to be in it.”

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST---Evan Peters (AMERICAN HORROR STORY) will play Quicksilver.

THINGS I'VE LEARNED FROM WOMEN WHO'VE DUMPED ME---MGM movie underway based on the anthology which includes authors Steven Colbert, Andy Richter and Patton Oswalt.
