Eva Green is going to kick some Greek butt. Xerxes is still confused about his sexuality but is clear about not being a Persian Goldmember. Honest, he isn't. Meanwhile, the Spartans, who historically didn't give much of a thought about sea battles, are flying through the air for freedom, as long as it does not apply to Helots. It's camp, and butch, and all Lady Gaga, and Fascist, and stuff, all at the same time. Enjoy!

Okay, this is a joke and a half that only a fanboy can love.

This sequel is going to make billions. We will see it. We will not be happy.

With the movie Dredd, Judge Dredd finally got a worthy movie, and fans have been hoping for a sequel, even though it wasn’t a big hit at the box office. If we don’t get a movie sequel, there’s a new Dredd comic called Underbelly that is a direct follow up to the movie.

Frank Darabont had been around for quite some time before he created one of the greatest Stephen King adaptations ever, The Shawshank Redemption. Darabont also gave us The Green Mile, The Mist, and of course, The Walking Dead.
It’s hard to remember the last time Robert Rodriguez directed a good movie, and while Sin City had its flaws, it was still pretty cool stuff. The black and white look of the film was also very innovative, back when Rodriguez was still breaking new ground as a filmmaker.

There was quite a bit of controversy when it was announced that The Hobbit would be cut into three films. The book isn’t that long, and you could probably tell the story in one big movie.
