Ask any comic book fan and they will tell you that “Watchmen” by Alan Moore is one of the greatest graphic novels in history. These “fanboys” will also be quick to point out that the source material about tortured superheroes is utterly inadaptable.
The real superhero behind this production is Warner Bros. The studio greenlit an unfilmable project that’s rated R with a running time of 161 minutes. To make matters worse, WB had to defend their rights to adapt “Watchmen” from 20th Century FOX.
So is the final product worth it for the embattled Warner Bros.? Yes and no. “Watchmen” will delight comic book fans but will leave non-believers wanting for more. Read More...

Wow!!!! OMG!! He seems so AMAZING!!!!
He sounds like the perfect man that every girl wants!!! ..James, if you read this, call me<3
I love him!!!!!!
he IS a hottie! his career is going to be HUGE!
No, fans were not talking about Hollywood's latest IT boy, "Twilight's" Robert Pattinson, they're going crazy about James Holzier!
James Holzier who, you asked? Well, I did my own digging, and I found this helpful article:
Look out ladies! Looking for new stars. There is no better one than newcomer on the rise James Holzier. This new star is tearing up the net waves and women alike of all ages are calling him their own. James Holzier is the #1 searched for male celebrity in the world on Mencelebs.com. Which, is the highest visited male celebrity directory on the planet. Holzier has a nice tight lean body which you will see in pictures, but what makes him so unique and identifiable is that young James has overcome odds and obstacles throughout his entire life.
This hot new star also has followed his own path in turning his back on instant stardom. Respectfully so. James has turned down roles for instant fame in choice of following his instincts and his passion and love toward acting. This new star knows who he is, and I like that alot! As one Hollywood insider says, “He knows who he is. I respect that alot.”
Holzier has celebrity sites alike all writing about him and clinging on to him. Including Juicy UK in the United Kingdom, Girl Power Magazine in Australia and so many more. His large following is very evident, but all seems deeper because Holzier seem to evoke something many don’t. As the Insider of Entertainment on CBS has mentioned Holzier as authentic.
Holzier remains undeniable humble down to earth and was quoted in saying recently, “I am not better than anyone else no way at all. Not even close. I just thing any of can do anything whoever we are. ” Holzier carries that cool attitude which has served him very well in life. No matter what the role Holzier decides to grab onto you can be sure operators and magazines alike are standing by.
All this and more is setting the stage for a bright new star poised for stardom.
He seems like a lovable, down-to-earth guy, so I contacted his publicist, AND JAMES HAS A MESSAGE TO ME! YES, GIRLS, ME!
"I can't wait to meet the amazing and incredible Manny. Keep spreading the love because we all are. And I know it isn't just this movie "Live For Us" that will be rated 4 kisses cause it might even break to 5 or more whenever you go that high. But our interview in general will be a perfect 4!!"
Aw...isn't that sweet? Now I can't wait to see his upcoming film, "Live For Us," and perhaps, sit down and interview him, face to face!
Holzier is being described as the next James Dean, and the actor is saying his upcoming movie is reminiscent of "Rebel Without a Cause."
Alright, now I'm intrigued!
If you want to know more about this really cool actor, check out his interview right here.
Meanwhile, good luck to James, and hope to talk to you very, very soon!!!!!

It seems that Broadway has been turning Hollywood hits into big musical productions every day!
Just this week alone, we heard of "Spider-Man" the musical, and now, get ready for show-stopping numbers from "Sleepless in Seattle!"
The Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan 1993 romantic flick is getting a song-and-dance makeover!
According to Daily Variety, the film's screenwriter, Jeff Arch, is working with composer and lyricist Leslie Bricusse ("Doctor Doolittle," "Victor/Victoria").
The theater adaptation is targeting 2010 for its release, and it will be directed by Joel Zwick ("My Big Fat Greek Wedding").
I know, I know, I complain about these things, but I'll be first in line when it opens

Leave it to Academy award winner Sean Penn to be truly productive!
The "Milk" actor's latest passion is to urge California lawmakers to officially recognize Harvey Milk's birthday.
He has joined a campaign to designate May 22nd (Milk's birthday) as Milk day!
There's only one big problem! It was proposed last year, but Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed it.
But with "Milk's" critical success, State Senator Mark Leno is saying Milk is now, more than ever, clearly seen as a civil rights champion!
Will the Governator finally approve this proposal? Stay tuned...
