Cellphone as Plot Device 

Remember a time at the movies when cellphones were not used as means to move the plot forward? Now, it seems that every film we watch we get to see a cell phone make a cameo appearance.

From "Sex and the City" to "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle," read this great article about movies, and some TV shows, that use cell phones as a bridge from Act 1 to Act 2.

"Burn After Reading" Blazes Atop Box-Office 

I'm glad "Burn After Reading" took the No. 1 spot at the box-office, raking in $19.4 million in ticket sales!

I enjoyed the movie, even though it's not as powerful as "No Country for Old Men." But I'm glad that the film helped end a seven-week attendance slide at theaters.

Tyler Perry's "The Family that Preys," debuted at No. 2 with $18 million, while "Righteous Kill" starring Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro opened at No. 3 with $16.5 million.

"The Women" starring Meg Ryan and Annette Bening debuted at No. 4 with $10.1 million.

"Slumdog Millionaire" Big Winner at Toronto Fest 

"Slumdog Millionaire," Danny Boyle's ("Trainspotting") fantastic film, won big at the 33rd annual Toronto International Film Festival. The movie nabbed the People's Choice award.

The film tells the tale of Jamal Malik (Dev Patel), an impoverished Indian teen, who becomes a contestant on the Hindi version of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?." Why? Not to win money, but to prove his love for his friend Latika (Freida Pinto) who's a big fan of the show.
