TERRENCE MALICK, SEAN PENN, BRAD PITT -- I'LL CLIMB THIS "TREE OF LIFE" 


Brad Pitt is in talks to replace Heath Ledger in the new film, "Tree of Life."

It's going to be directed by the respected helmer, Terrence Malick, and will be produced by River Road (who's currently basking in "Into the Wild" glory).

Sean Penn is set to co-star even though he's booked to play the title character in the Gus Van Sant flick, "Harvey Milk."

WHEN MANNY MET RASCAL -- THE UGLIEST DOG IN THE WORLD!!! 
Okay y'all, a bit off topic, but this morning, our NBC morning show, KMIR6 Today, received a wonderful visitor, Mister Rascal, the ugliest dog in the world!

Supposedly, Rascal is the only living and competing ugly dog to hold the coveted "Ring of Champions" title which makes him the current "World's Ugliest Dog".

Take a look at his picture, is this dog ugly?



So when I met him, I felt almost like a sorry feeling for him, if he only knew that people are calling him ugly. Because in person, Mister Rascal is cute and sweet.

So I had my picture taken with him, the world's ugliest dog meets the world's ugliest film critic :)

"SPEED RACER" -- NEW, OFFICIAL TRAILER!!! 


The other writing-directing siblings, the Wachowski Brothers, teamed up once again to bring us the big screen, live-action adaptation of "Speed Racer."

I've always been fond of these bros since "Bound," and I was mesmerized by "The Matrix" (I watched it 5 million times). I didn't like the last two "Matrix" films though, specially the last one, "The Matrix Revolutions," too much information ruined a darn good film!

There were rumors (among many swirling around this dynamic duo) that they stepped in to finish "V for Vendetta." And I enjoyed that flick! "Remember, remeber the 5th of November."

So now, I'm very curious on how they're going to put the pedal to the metal with "Speed Racer." I wasn't a big fan of the cartoon series when I was a child but I did enjoy the brief re-emergence of the character in the 90s with that club song, "Go Speed Racer Go."

We have to wait until May 2008 to see the flick, and right now, we just have to contend with the short trailer.

It's colorful, it's flashy, it looks like it's fun...and Emile Hirsch emerges from "Into the Wild" to speed race, and don the dominatrix-looking white leather outfit!

Have Fun!!!!
