First, we have "BURN AFTER READING." Not the best Coen Brothers' film, but it still entertains!
We also have "THE WOMEN" starring Meg Ryan and Anette Benning. Just a so-so flick that's inferior to the original George Cukor 1939 classic.
And of course, "DEATH RACE" the remake starring Jason Statham. The race scenes are well-shot and choreographed, and Joan Allen is fun to watch! Check my interviews with the cast right here.

13 years after Sylvester Stallone starred as the judge, jury, and executioner "Judge Dredd," the comic book film is set to return for a sequel!
The news was announced on the official 2000AD website.
But the big question -- Is Stallone going to return?

As we told you back in March, Michael Bay and company were planning a remake of "Rosemary's Baby."
Well, good news!
According to WENN, the movie producers behind a planned remake of the 1968 horror classic have dropped plans for a new film.
They shouldn't have thought of remaking this film in the first place! Leave the movie alone, and let it be enjoyed in its purest form by future generations!

There are way too many great films in 2008! It was hard for me to pinpoint the TOP 10. But before we talk about my Top 10 list, let's talk about the runner-ups, and here they are:
"FROZEN RIVER" -- Melissa Leo is superb!
"THE VISITOR" -- Richard Jenkins deserves an Oscar nomination.
"DOUBT" -- the acting ensemble is superb, but Viola Davis as the suffering mom steals the show!
"ROLE MODELS" -- I love this comedy! And I want to see it again!
"RACHEL GETTING MARRIED" -- Anne Hathaway deserves an Oscar nomination as the family's blacksheep, Kym.
"RELIGULOUS" -- Bill Maher's irreverent documentary is an intelligent look at religion.
"CHOKE" -- I adore Chuck Pahlaniuk and this film's biting humor!
"BURN AFTER READING" -- Not the best Coen Brothers' flick, but it's still entertaining thanks to Brad Pitt's winning performance.
"HAMLET 2" -- Rock Me Sexy Jesus indeed!
"TROPIC THUNDER" -- a funny satire on Hollywood and filmmaking!
"THE VISITOR" – Richard Jenkins gave one of the year’s best performances in this uplifting movie!
"HAPPY-GO-LUCKY" – Speaking of uplifting, Mike Leigh’s film about an optimistic teacher (Sally Hawkins) will put a big smile on your face!
“AMERICAN TEEN” – This documentary set in a high school in a small Indiana town is a fantastic study of teenage life in America.
“MAMMA MIA!” – I’m so happy that Meryl Streep is finding new career resurgence as a box-office phenomenon! This is one of the feel good movies of the year!
“WANTED” – One of the year’s best action films, James McAvoy is the reluctant action star, and Angelina Jolie? Love her!
“IRON MAN” – it’s one of those rare magical movie moments where the performances (led by Robert Downey Jr.) and the direction (Jon Favreau) converge to give us one of the year’s most captivating action films – and yeah, it’s a comic book adaptation too!
“HORTON HEARS A WHO” – A person’s a person, no matter how small! I can relate!
“IN BRUGES” – Collin Farrell at his finest! I even shed a tear!
“SON OF RAMBOW” – If you’ve ever fantasized about making a movie as a child, here’s the film for you!
AND NOW, MY FAVORITE FILMS, THE TOP 10 BEST MOVIES OF 2008!
AND YES, IT'S ALL ABOUT HOPE!
HAVE FUN AND HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON!
