Come on and slam! Space Jam returns to select theaters!

There's been some talk about a SPACE JAM sequel these last couple of years because why not? LeBron James has been front-and-center regarding the lead character and last we heard, director Justin Lin would be helming this bad boy. That's all well and good, but how about giving fans what they REALLY want and putting the original slam jam back in theaters? Good news, as...

Pop-Up Movie Facts: Michael Bay's The Rock (video)

Ah, Michael Bay 's THE ROCK. A true action classic of the '90's with infinitely quotable lines and stellar action movie performances from Nicolas Cage , Sean Connery , Ed Harris , and the massively underrated Michael Biehn . While Bay has dug himself five movies deep into the TRANSFORMERS franchise, there's always hope for him to return to the straight action genre...

In this continuing series we take a look at the Oscar nominations of years past, examining the flicks that were nominated, as well as the pic we feel got snubbed among all the other candidates. Love 'em or hate 'em, the Oscars usually highlight the best films from each year (although there are plenty that get overlooked) and it's always fun to look back and see what was popular for any...

Face-Off: The Rock vs. Con Air

In our previous Face-Off , I dropped close combat action films JACK REACHER and JOHN WICK into the ring, and not only did 100% of you agree with my decision to give it to JOHN WICK , no one complained that it was a lopsided Face-Off or politely asked me to leave the internet forever. It was as if I'd died and went to movie column Heaven. They already have the Episode VIII trailer there,...

Sam Mendes in talks to direct James and the Giant Peach for Disney

At this point I'm convinced that Disney is just going to remake everything and, despite our grumblings, will make a trillion dollars in the process. The next project on Disney's remake block will be a new re-imagining of Roald Dahl 's "James and the Giant Peach," which was previously adapted by Henry Selick for Disney in the live-action/animated hybrid of the...

Movie in a Nutshell - Independence Day

In case you missed it twenty years ago, a little movie called INDEPENDENCE DAY came out, which shot The Fresh Prince into superstardom and gave us a rip-roarin' good time at the movies in the summer of 1996. Yeah, it was cheesy and preposterous, but it also featured Jeff Goldblum doing his very best Jeff Goldblum , the best motivational speech by a movie president of all time, an...

Space Jam director has a few words of advice for the sequel: "Don't do it"

Here's your daily "shit, I'm old" moment, it's been twenty years since SPACE JAM first hit theaters. The sports/comedy which blended the wacky world of Looney Tunes with the wacky world of the NBA was a definite crowd-pleaser back in the day and although it took some time, a sequel is now in the works. Earlier this month it was announced that LeBron James would...

Space Jam 2 finally happening with LeBron James and Justin Lin

Fans of the original SPACE JAM have been calling for a sequel to happen for a number of years.

Cameron Crowe's 25-page Jerry Maguire mission statement is yours to read

One of the most thought-provoking elements of Tom Cruise 's performance in JERRY MAGUIRE is the soul he gives to the sports agent in the title who sees the industry he's found success in a bit differently than many of his colleagues do. Whereas he may have once viewed the athletes he represented as commodities, he applies something much more personal to each and every one of...
