The Latest Announcements

Robots - September 20

The rug rats have been getting the best of it when it comes to releases in the last few years. In that time we've had a bunch of quality animated films like Shrek and The Incredibles, and some not so good animated films like Ice Age and Shrek 2. Robots, doesn't seem to have that "umph" that the aforementioned quality films had but even more disturbing is how hot Halle Berry looks as a robot. What can I say, I love robots that much.

Layer Cake - August 23

Speaking of the English folk across the pond, Americans got shafted on the theatrical release of Layer Cake, that is, unless you got some kind of sneaky, groovy secret screening of it. Matthew Vaughn, Guy Richie's producer, got tired of waiting for Guy to direct his next flick (or waiting until Madonna told him it was okay) and the result was Layer Cake. In that time, Vaughn also managed to snag and knock up model and angel from heaven, Claudia Schiffer. Hey, not a bad year. Good job, homeslice!
