"W" Movie Review! How Many Kisses Does Dubya Get? 

Oliver Stone is known as a controversial director. From his revisionist take on “JFK” to his glorification of mass murderers in “Natural Born Killers,” Stone showcased his burning passion that many deemed unacceptable. Stone might have listened to his detractors because his new film “W,” while well-directed, is saddled without a point.

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, you might have missed the hype surrounding “W” even before it was made! The film is supposed to be an incendiary look at the presidency of George Walker Bush to be released a few weeks before the election to sway voters. But “W” is not going to change your opinion of the man or his political party, whether you’re leaning towards the left or the right. Read More...

"Iron Man 2" -- Goodbye Terrence Howard, Hello Don Cheadle 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Don Cheadle is replacing Terrence Howard in "Iron Man 2."

Howard played Tony Stark/Iron Man's best bud, Col. James "Rhodey" Rhodes, and for those die-hard fans, the character will eventually don an armor outfit to be the hero War Machine.

But all that exciting character development will now be embodied by Cheadle.

So why did Howard leave? MONEY $$$$!!!

But apparently, Marvel is paying lots of dough for Robert Downey Jr. to return. Jon Favreau is set to come back as director, and Gwyneth Paltrow will also return as Pepper Potts.

Director Richard Donner Crashes "Lethal Weapon 5" 

Developing Story: According to the LA Times:

Richard Donner, who directed and produced all four "Lethal Weapon" films but found himself excluded from the recent plans to make a fifth, now says that his old friend Mel Gibson has walked away from the franchise revival.

Well, if there's no Mel, then there's no "Lethal" franchise right?

"Mel turned it down," Donner said. "I would like to think that Mel turned it down because I wasn't involved. Knowing Mel, I would like to think that. Would that be the kind of thing he does? It sure would be."

Hhhhmmmmm. Also, Donner directed the first 2 "Superman" films (he wasn't credited for the second one, but you know) with Christopher Reeve. So what does he really think of "Superman Returns" by Bryan Singer?

Take a look at his response here.
