Rob Zombie to Return for "Halloween 2?" 


I did enjoy director Rob Zombie's foray into Michael Myers' territory in "Halloween" -- Zombie's homage to the original John Carpenter classic.

Zombie did a great job reinvigorating the franchise, that now, word is getting around that a sequel is being planned, and the rocker/director may be attached.

Well, the 2007 "Halloween" was smashing, but let's not do what we did to the original franchise where 2 million sequels were made.

And truth be told, I still think "The Devil's Rejects" is Zombie's best film to date!

The Razzies Salivating Over "Valkyrie" 


Normally, studios would have shown their Academy contenders to voters and critics, oh, right about now. But MGM, the production studio behind Tom Cruise's "Valkyrie" (see photo above courtesy of LA Times) has been unbelievably quiet.

But there were some folks who were able to see the movie in advance, and the general response? "Tepid, laughable, bad"

Now, the Razzies, which hands out the year's worst film awards, is salivating, and can't wait to pounce on poor Tom and his "Valkyrie."

This is unfortunate as I like the film's director, Bryan Singer ("The Usual Suspects," "X-Men 1 & 2," "Superman Returns"). But hey, even Darren Aronofsky, who made the horribly inspired (?) film "The Fountain" bounced back with this year's "The Wrestler" (one of the year's best!).

So what do those unfortunate "Valkyrie" viewers say about the film? Click here to read. HINT: They're saying Cruise is...laughable!
