When I watch a new film, I always hope, in the deep recesses of my mind, that it will turn out to be a good movie. Seeing a flick deeply affects my mood, especially if I have to drive to Los Angeles to watch it.
If it’s a good flick, then I’m on cloud nine, but if it’s a bad movie, you will not want to drive with me. While “Fred Claus” is not horrible, it’s a stinker enough to put me in a bad mood from now until Christmas.

Billy Bob Thornton just signed on to join the cast of "Eagle Eye," starring Shia LaBeouf, Michelle Monaghan, and Rosario Dawson.
The flick is going to be directed by D.J. Caruso.
The thriller is about a mom (Monaghan) and her son (LaBeouf) who have been mistaken as terrorists, and now, must carry out a political assassination.
Sounds intriguing -- just don't let Shia into any drugstore on location!

Mike Newell, the guy who gave us "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," one of the best in the series, is directing "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time."
It's a live-action pic based on the popular videogame!
Disney is hoping that this will spawn numerous sequels, since the vidgame has several spinoffs.

I love Guillermo del Toro! I enjoyed "The Devil's Backbone" and "Pan's Labyrinth." I even thought twice about "Hellboy" and "Blade II."
But now, he's set to direct "Champions."
It's based on a 1960s British TV series about a team of secret government agents who are given superhuman abilities after surviving a plane crash.
Sorta like "Lost" meets "Heroes."

Roman Polanski is set to direct "The Ghost," a thriller based on a Robert Harris novel.
Polanski will be shooting in Europe next fall since he's not allowed to step into the U.S.
This political thriller is about a ghostwriter for a former British prime minister. Secrets uncovered that will make the writer run for his life!!!
