  1. Strap On Your Loin Cloths, It’s Time for a Hercules Gif Review

    Pure Oscar material.

    After a weekend of intense internal debate, yesterday I decided to hop on the bus, schlep to the theater, and see Hercules. After all, I justified to myself, it has Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson! Surely it will at least be entertaining! My subconscious was screaming in the background—But Brett Ratner. It's directed by Brett Ratner!—but I did not listen. I should have. Because Hercules was bad. And it needed to be worse. (Warning: Spoilers within.)

  3. Bryan Singer Still Thinks Superman Returns Failed Because He Tried to Make it for Women

    Faster than a speeding bullet!

    In 2011 Bryan Singer gave a interview in which he revealed some of the reasons why he thought Superman Returns failed critically and at the box office, and among them he included what he considered an attempt to make a Superman film to interest the Devil Wears Prada crowd: i.e., women. And while Singer's language isn't that of blaming, I still wish he'd come up with a different wording in the intervening years between then and now, when in the newest issue of Empire Magazine he says again that Superman Returns was a movie made for a female audience.

  4. Just FYI: Hailee Steinfeld Is Starring In A Movie About a Teenage Assassin

    Cautiously Optimistic

    It's a slow news day, and the only real thing that's come out is that Hayao Miyazaki is retiring, which is sad-making. So what I have for you now might not be big news, but if you're anything like me it'll put a smile on your face. Hailee Steinfeld is playing a teenage assassin in a movie called Barely Lethal. Her mentor? None other than Samuel L. Jackson.

  5. Bryan Singer: I’ll “Repair” Things From The Last Stand in Days of Future Past

    Mutatis Mutandis

    Good going, Singer. The first step to fixing a problem with your franchise is admitting there is one.

  6. Brett Ratner’s Making a FarmVille TV Show, And There’s Nothing You Can Do About It

    Are you sick of hearing about J.J. Abrams directing things? Yeah, us too. Here's the problem, though -- all the other news about other people signing on to projects is much, much worse. Case in point: because absolutely no one demanded it, you're getting a FarmVille TV series produced by no less a luminary than Brett Ratner, so abandon all  hope ye who enter here. It's a pretty inspired choice, we have to admit -- a man whose movies everyone watches and no one admits to watching paired with a video game many people play, but no one admits to playing for a TV show that probably no one will watch, but we'll bet still gets more episodes than Do No Harm.

  9. Brett Ratner: Quitting the Oscars While He’s A(butt)head

    And All Was Right With the World

    To the surprise of probably no one, Brett Ratner has stepped down from his job producing next year's Oscars ceremony after a public bout of verbal diarrhea. Okay, snark aside, the director of Tower Heist (and a bunch of other movies that were never meant to be smart) gave up his plum gig after using a homophobic slur to describe something as silly and unnecessary as rehearsing scenes with actors. Just days before that, he used his publicity tour as a megaphone to make sexist comments about Olivia Munn and then deny them. So, let it be known: We will now be spared an Oscar broadcast that celebrates Ratner's heterosexuality. And now we are left to wonder: Who can replace Brett Ratner as the producer of the Oscars? Um, anyone. The answer is "Anyone at all."

  10. Brett Ratner Bashes Matthew Vaughn Over X-Men: First Class, Might Be Jealous

    Oh Hollywood

    Looks like someone is a little bitterpants this morning. Brett Ratner, who directed the X-Men: The Last Stand, took to Twitter this morning to post a series of links comparing the box office numbers of his movie to those of Matthew Vaughn's just-opened X-Men: First Class. You may recall that Ratner's movie, which he would love to remind us all was successful at the box office, got pretty awful reviews. Meanwhile, X-Men: First Class has been getting mostly positive reviews. (Right now, it has an 87% rating at Rotten Tomatoes. X-Men: The Last Stand boasts a comparatively sad 57%.) So, the moral of the story according to Brett Ratner: His craptastic movie is superior to that good movie because it made more money. So it shall be written. So it shall be done.
