Rudy Ray "Dolemite" Moore Dies at 81 


Rudy Ray Moore, one of the pioneers of blaxpoitation films, has died from complications from diabetes. He was 81.

One of Moore's most memorable movies is "Dolemite," a film he self-produced about one of the most beloved characters from his stand-up acts.

I particularly enjoy blaxpoitation films for all their grittiness and raw energy, and Mister Rudy Ray Moore is certainly one of the icons of the genre.

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!
