The other Manny the Movie Guy, the real Manny the Movie Guy, Manny Farber, passed away at the age of 91.

His film criticism has appeared at The New Republic and The Nation among others. When I was studying film criticism, I read all his film criticisms for guidance. Manny helped shape and inform my analytical thinking.

Everything You Want to Know about "Fame" the Remake! 

All together now, FAME! I'M GONNA MAKE IT TO HEAVEN!

Lakeshore is serious about rebooting "Fame." And I'm happy as a clam! I used to love this movie as a kid. It even got me into dancing and singing :happy

But the big question -- is Irene Cara going to be back?

Our friend at Collider sat down with Lakeshore, and discovered:

*** they’re going to shoot the movie this November
*** the students will all be unknowns but some of the teachers we’ll recognize
*** the budget is around $25-30 million
*** they’re going to film in New York and the interiors in Los Angeles
*** it’s set today
*** All new songs except they’re going to use the Fame song

"Voltron" Moving Forward 

Remember this 80s treasure? "Voltron: Defender of the Universe" is now going to be a feature film, and is being put on fast track.

It's being produced by Fox-based New Regency.

According to Variety , New Regency picked up the rights to the property, adapted by scribe Justin Marks, who's behind Warner Bros.' bigscreen versions of "He-Man" and "Green Arrow."

Marks' take is described as a post-apocalyptic tale set in New York City and Mexico, where five survivors of an alien attack band together and end up piloting the five lion-shaped robots that combine and form the massive sword-wielding Voltron that helps battle Earth's invaders.

The success of "Transformers" is bringing all these robots out into the open!
