Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Looper (REVIEW)

Writer-Director Rian Johnson has been a peronal favorite of mine for several years. His 2005 high school set crime noir classic "Brick" cemented him on my 'to watch list' of young directors going forward. His 2008 film "The Brothers Bloom" is much lighter and doesn't reach the lofty heights of "Brick", but maintains Johnson's own personal touch and charm. Add in two episodes of the AMC drama Breaking Bad that he's directed, and I could be considered a bona fide fanboy. Needless to say, I have been feverishly anticipating "Looper" for a long time.

Horror Headlines: Monday March 21st, 2011

Oh it's on! Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been confirmed to be in the next installment of the Batman saga currently titled "The Dark Knight Rises". Which character he will play has yet to be released but if I know my Batman trivia, which I think I do, I assume he'll be playing the role of King Tut. Google it, trust me it's funny.

Jodi Foster will step behind the camera for a new sci-fi flick that she's developing. No real details on the movie but apparently it'll have a nice warm family feel to it. So maybe something like "ET 2". The world demands it!

"The Seventh Son" has added Julianne Moore to its cast list which already includes Jeff Bridges. Moore will play the most bad ass of all witches who uses blood magic, whatever the hell that is. This is funny because I've always assumed Julianne Moore was a witch in real life because she looks exactly the same as she did 20 years ago. In days of old she would have been burned at the stake for being in her 50's and still being pretty hot.

Everyone and their mother has joined the cast of "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters 3D" including Derek Mears who you might remember as Jason from the "Friday the 13th" remake. Fans of the "MacGruber" movie may also recognize him as "Large Henchman" which I believe got him an Oscar nomination.

In Real People News: 

I'm pretty sure you need to get your parent's permission when you're 14 years old and want to get a tattoo. Even if you are paying for it with sex like this girl in Pennsylvania did. The 34 year old tattoo artist is now being brought up on charges and I assume he'll try to say he thought she was over 18. For his sake I hope it wasn't a Bieber tattoo.

Of all the places you can accidentally leave your child when you're drunk, in a bathroom gas station has got to be in the top 5 worst places. Apparently you can also get into some serious trouble for it because a Delaware women is facing DUI and other charges after doing just that. News to me.

Horror Headlines: Friday September 3rd, 2010

The guys behind both "Paranormal Activity" films have plans to create a show for the small screen in the near future. The show will be called "Paranormal Activities" and will feature real ghosts doing everyday fun tasks just like us livin' folk. Alright that's a lie, but they are working on a show.

Much to my surprise "Let Me In" has received a big old R rating from the MPAA. Apparently the movie's going to feature "strong bloody horror violence, language and a brief sexual situation". Brief sexual situation? So much for being toned down.

Are Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson attached to the big screen adaptation of "Breathers: A Zombie's Lament"? Sounds iffy but I've actually read the book and I feel it's important for my self esteem to report on movies that have to do with the dozen or so books I've read over the years. Me read pretty one day!

Liam Neeson is all fired up and ready to star in "The Grey". The film focuses is on a a group of pipeline workers who come in contact with a pack of wild wolves after their plane crashes in Alaska. Liam Neeson, he's what's for dinner.

In Real People News: 

Over 300 goats have been killed in the state of Puebla down in Mexico and shepherds are pissed! The prime suspect in the crime? Chupacabra! Holy crap I love Chupacabra and everything it does. I want one as a pet.

On this day in history: 

1939 - Britain and France declared war on Germany, two days after the Nazi invasion of Poland.
