First Look: "Marley & Me" 


"Marley & Me" is a bestselling autobiographical book by American journalist John Grogan. Told in first-person narrative, the book portrays Grogan and his family's life during the thirteen years that they lived with their Labrador Retriever, Marley, and the relationships and lessons from this period.

The movie version, due Christmas Day, is a feel good flick starring Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston. Gossip hounds know that this is where the couple met, and now, they've gone on separate ways even before the film opens.

Oh well. For now, take a look at a sneak pic of "Marley & Me." Read More...

Academy Fever -- Great Films that Never Received an Oscar!!! 


Time and time again, year after year, we root for films that were forgotten by Oscar voters. We scratched our heads and contemplate why our favorite movie of the year wasn't even included as a nominee! It's been dissed by the Academy!

Movies like "Reservoir Dogs" (1992) or "Mean Streets" (1973), great films from Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese, respectively, were not even nominated for a single Oscar!

As we move forward to the Award Season, I found this great article that explains why bad things happen to good movies! Take a look!

R.I.P.: Mr. Blackwell Dies at 86 


Mr. Blackwell, the cranky fashion critic who was famous for his annual list of Hollywood's worst dressed, has died. He was 86.

Long before Joan Rivers, Mr. Blackwell was the first to take Hollywood's reigning stars to task for not dressing the way they should be. He was famous for his acerbic one-liners, such as:

Madonna: "The Bare-Bottomed Bore of Babylon."


Take a look at this article for more famous Blackwell-ian quotes, and watch this video for an introspective look on the life and times of Mr. Blackwell.
