"Inception" Movie Review -- How Many Kisses Do Leonardo DiCaprio and Christopher Nolan Get? 

When I first interviewed writer-director Christopher Nolan for “The Prestige,” he struck me as a very intelligent man. So who best to architect a film about the mysteries of the human mind than Nolan himself.

“Inception” is a high concept movie that could easily fall into pieces at the hands of a less-skilled director. Produced, written, and directed by Nolan, “Inception” is easily one of the best films this summer, possibly this year. Read More...

"Wicked" Defies Gravity, May Soon Become a Big-Screen Musical! Yay! 

"Wicked," the movie based on the super-successful musical is one step closer to becoming a reality! According to Deadline Hollywood, "the musical's producer Marc Platt, book writer Winnie Holzman, and songwriter Stephen Schwartz have begun meeting with filmmakers."

And directors JJ Abrams, James Mangold, Ryan Murphy, and Rob Marshall are some of the helmers who have either met with the creators or have thrown their hat in the ring.

This is exciting news! I love "Wicked" and have always imagined the big screen version of it! But the big question, will Universal hire the musical's original stellar cast Idina Menzel (Elphaba) and Kristin Chenoweth (Galinda)?
