Yahoo! Movies: Weekend Box Office Report “Star Wars: The Revenge of the Sith” stands tall and faces down it’s next set of challengers. As the Red Stripe guy might say. “Hooray for Star Wars!”
Back in the mid-1990s, this movie called “Jerry Maguire” appeared. Before it debuted, the film company ran numerous trailers that were completely different in tone. Was it a sappy romantic comedy about Renee Zellwegger’s romance with Tom Cruise? Was it a cute comedy about Tom Cruise and this adorable, precocious kid? Was it going to …
Is it really possible that Adam Sandler’s new film The Longest Yard has seized first place from The Sith already?

Most of you have already seen World of Warcraft with Leeroy, about a gamer who rejects strategy and planning and hurls himself into the fray. Leeroy is already gamer slang for a certain type of player, and he has his own Wikipedia entry.
(this is a parody, of course. I’ve never actually spoken to George Lucas or anyone else here). This is continued from Alan Kistler’s Interview with Darth Vader! Hello, again. Alan Kistler here. Having decided that my Vader interview only scratched the surface of many of my questions, I have decreed we must ask OTHERS. So, …
Looks like another superhero flick is being filmed here. Thanks to Hollywood North Report for the info. The movie is being scheduled for a May 26, 2005 release date. By the way: yes, we do get used to seeing Movies shows being shot here in Vancouver. At least anyone who has lived here for any …
Two hurt in mock light sabre duel Two Star Wars fans are in a critical condition in hospital after apparently trying to make light sabres by filling fluorescent light tubes with petrol. A man, aged 20, and a girl of 17 are believed to have been filming a mock duel when they poured fuel into …

Alan Kistler here and once again I have done the impossible.

THE …
I had a bit of a shock this morning. I was searching my old contact list for digital colorists and, upon visiting the web site of Benjamin “KryptonKid” Grose, I found out that he died last November! Ben passed away from complications with muscular dystrophy at the age of only 25. I would like to …
‘Sarcasm’ brain areas discovered If they’d examined my little brother’s brain they could have found this a decade ago. His sarcasm center has to be five times the normal size.

I saw Sith yesterday, in a theater with a relatively small attendance. I think anyone dying to see it went at midnight, as the Chateau vowed to put it on as many as 14 screens to meet demand. I’m sorry, but I don’t know that I’ll have time for a full review. I will say …

Jim Geraghty’s “Sith” review hits on a lot of the points I was planning to make in my review, so I’ll either be hammering them home or skipping on to other points.
