Guess who has been added to the cast of the rebooted “Robocop“?
Need any hints? Go ahead, give it a go.
Give up? It’s MICHAEL KEATON.
This “Robocop” reboot has a badass cast so far – Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, The Snabba Cash star & director and OMAR!
It appears Keaton will fill in for House MD as the heavy, which is cool, Keaton can play the black hat. Whomever won the role knew ahead of time that they had big shoes to fill from the original – the great RONNY COX.
It’s less than a month Denver.
“Once Upon a Time in Anatolia” is already a strong contender for 2012 Movie of the Year. At 157 minutes, it’s hard to imagine that the film doesn’t feel long enough but after two viewings I want more from these characters. An entrancing epic ‘fairytale’ of a movie, “Once Upon a Time in Anatolia” is several movies rolled into one – an absurd road movie, a police procedural, a black comedy Coen Brothers-style, a melancholic existential human drama and ultimately a gaze into the lonely minds of introspective Turkish bureaucrats. Now that last one is not specifically a type of movie but after this film maybe it should be a new genre.

New films opening that SM thinks look worth a trip to the ol’ theater…

This one looks fun with two very likeable leads.

Cronenberg. DeLillo. Nuff said. Oh and that vampire cuckold too.

Interesting doco on the aborted Iranian Revolution.

This looks like a fascinating doco on the Latino Dylan.

Here’s a bonus video of just what an R-Rated ALF might look like….these vids are NSFW.
North Koreans? Seriously?
Say what you will about the original “Red Dawn” (Pro-war recruiting video, anti-government training manual for the Reagan Jugend, 1st PG-13 movie CHALK full of violence, etc…) at least it had the guts to go after the Russians, our big rival at the time.
North Korea? Seriously? I know there’s some B.S. about an advanced technologies that give them the ability to kick ass now, but come on, the country struggles to feed its people.
Not China? Are they are biggest rival nowadays?
Oh, that’s right, they own most of America and a good chunk of its debt, can’t bite the hand that loans you the money to feed you and enable you to buy plastic crap.
BTW – the movie has been on the shelf for years.
