Who Should Play Jacob in "New Moon?" 
More drama in the "Twilight" paradise.

Taylor Lautner, who played Jacob Black in "Twilight" is said to be fighting to get his role back in the sequel, "New Moon."

The contender? Michael Copon! And apparently, Copon is feeling very confident he'll land the role!

Why not? Lautner is mysteriously absent from all the press release surrounding the sequel! Hhhmmmmm....

Meanwhile, Ben Barnes a.k.a. Prince Caspian is joining the fun!

According to MTV:

Barnes is throwing his hat into the ring. The actor is already quite popular with the "Twilight" fanbase and shares the same manager as both Copon and "Twilight" star Cam Gigandet. Barnes is believed to be campaigning for the role of Aro, a mind-reading vampire whose "New Moon" encounter with Edward and Bella helps shape their destiny together.

Film Directors to Honor Roger Ebert 

I've said this so many times! Roger Ebert was and is my inspiration! When I was in college, I perused his books to learn film criticism. He has a unique way of criticizing a movie without being condescending. He never talks down to his audience!

Now, as the old saying goes, "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em," the Directors Guild is honoring Ebert! The film critic is going to receive the 2009 DGA Honorary Life Member Award.

Congratulations Mister Roger!!!

San Diego and Dallas-Fort Worth Film Critics Choose "Slumdog Millionaire" 

Critics are falling mighty hard for director Danny Boyle's "Slumdog Millionaire." Just recently, San Diego Film Critics and Dallas-Fort Worth Film Critics bestowed their top prize to the film!

Honestly, I enjoyed "Slumdog Millionaire" but not that much! It certainly deserves a slot in my Top 10, but the best of the best? Um, not really.

Which makes me ask. Are my fellow critics loving this movie for what happened to Mumbai in recent events? Or they genuinely think the movie is praise-worthy?

Just asking.

For best actor? It's neck and neck between Sean Penn ("Milk") and Mickey Rourke ("The Wrestler").

Ooohh...I love it when there's no clear winner -- makes for great drama!
