For two days only at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. local time, audiences can take the wild ride with Thelma (Geena Davis) and Louise (Susan Sarandon) all over again in a special THELMA & LOUISE 25th Anniversary celebration, presented by Fathom Events, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Park Circus.

Eating Crow: The Star Trek Beyond Review on “Geek/Countergeek”

In this latest edition of “Geek/Countergeek” Keith and I offer our reviews and reflections on the new Ghostbusters movie. How did it hold up next to the original films?

And, after lamenting how Star Trek has lost its way with the recent movies – and even giving poor Chris Pine grief – I have to eat my share of crow after seeing Star Trek Beyond…

Now I’m looking forward to the new television series!

What did you think about Star Trek Beyond?

After the backlash received by Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, it looks like DC Comics and Warner Bros. have been going into overdrive to generate as much positive buzz as they can for their slate of comic book films.

What do you think about what you’ve seen so far?

Stark Industries takes over Gillette to create Avengers-inspired razors?

So…last night I kept hearing about this “top secret event” that was going to take place this morning, something involving Stark Industries (as in Tony Stark) and the Gillette Razor. Of course it had to do with the upcoming release of “Age of Ultron”, so you know they were gonna do something big. Turns out that they had staged a “takeover” of the Gillette labs by Tony Stark, which resulted in the creation of a number of razors that were inspired by four of the Avengers, namely Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor. (It’s beyond me why the Hulk would even need a razor. Does he even think about shaving?)

As far as marketing stunts go, this one will make you chuckle:

Of course, this got me thinking that we’d be getting some cool, superhero razors. Alas it was not to be. Way to get my hopes up guys!

Go behind the scenes on the NEW James Bond 007 movie SPECTRE (2015)

With all the talk of Age of Ultron and The Force Awakens, it can be easy to overlook the latest installment in the James Bond 007 franchise titled “SPECTRE.”

Starring Daniel CraigMonica Bellucci and Léa Seydoux, with Christoph Waltz & Dave Bautista, the film brings the classic Bond adversary – the organization known as SPECTRE – into the 21st century.

Here’s a first-look behind the scenes of the film production, courtesy of JoBlo Movie Trailers:

Are you as psyched for this as I am?

As You Wish: Cary Elwes discusses “The Princess Bride”, William Goldman, and the secret to true love.

Fans of the fairy-tale film “The Princess Bride” won’t soon forget Cary Elwes and his character “Westley”, the farm-boy who won the heart of Robin Wright’s “Buttercup” with three words: “As you wish.”

But Elwes himself will admit that he wrote his bookAs You Wish: Inconceivable Tales From The Making Of The Princess Bride because he was afraid that his own memory would fail him eventually.

I’d As-You-Wish-Inconceivable-Tales-from-the-Making-of-The-Princess-Bride-HC-Bookalways wanted to write something, I didn’t know quite what.” Elwes explained as we spoke via telephone. “And it was the 25th anniversary that we had at Lincoln Center in 2012, we were all asked ‘what was the best memory’ for me.

“And I really couldn’t put it down to one moment or one scene, or anything. For me the whole experience was so joyful. And that’s why I wanted to write the book and share that joy with the fans before the memory started to fail.”

While he did keep a short video diary, which became an “extra” on “The Princess Bride” anniversary DVD release, he hadn’t kept notes during the film’s production.

“I didn’t keep a diary or a journal, which I wish I had now in hindsight,” Elwes admitted. “Luckily Norman Lear gave me all the call sheets for the film, and I went through them all and I started to remember exactly where I was each day.”

“And then my memory – thank god it had been 26-27 years – it all came flooding back.”
