movie theater stadium seating loner

Odds are since you’re reading this, presumably on the internet and not on our weekly printed newsletter distributed at your local Whole Foods, you’ve heard that Hatchet II is, for the most part, no longer playing in theaters. I don’t want to use the word “pulled” because that just sounds so violent – this is a kid’s site, for fucks sake. So you’re cruising around the internet and probably reading a lot of people’s opinions on why the film was removed from AMC screens. On one hand, the film didn’t make a lot of money. On the other, the film was unrated and some are suggesting the MPAA leaned on AMC to force their hand in removing the film from theaters. I’m sure there are a few other theories out there, at least one of them involving lizard people. Not one content to just blame the lizard people at every turn, I decided to put on my journalist hat (it’s a fedora) and actually talk to someone at AMC. That man is John Campea who has been a presence for years with AMC’s movie blogging and had a hand in helping Hatchet II find its way into theaters.


Memphis Beat

Today, two summer shows and one fall show that hasn’t aired yet saw renewals for another season including Hung, Memphis Beat, and The Walking Dead. Looks like we’ll be seeing more of Thomas Jane’s man parts, Jason Lee doing a southern accent and zombies attacking a guy on a horse. Look again. Now the horse is diamonds.



You’ve been hearing about it, you’ve seen the stills, you’ve experienced hype. But the time is here to finally see the first footage from the upcoming AMC original series The Walking Dead. The show comes to us from the man with the plan, Frank Darabont. Based on the highly popular indie comic of the same name, The Walking Dead looks like every zombie/horror fan’s wet dream.



AMC continues working their hoodoo in raising the dead, bringing us the best zombie production photo yet.



When it comes to zombie movies, there is often a lot of talk that happens for a long time without much to show it. Think World War Z. Thankfully, The Walking Dead has cast of the curse of development and has moved into the actual filming process under the guidance of director Frank Darabont. Now we’ve got photographic proof.



While you were busy planning a delightful weekend enjoying the sunshine and flying kites, Avatar was sneaking its way back into the theater.



Last night we had a chance to catch up with the Mad Men cast at a cocktail party in Los Angeles, and in true Mad Men fashion we drank Scotch on the rocks while bumming Lucky Strikes from nearby smokers.


Need something to do on Saturday, February 23. Allow us to suggest some Oscar-worthy flicks.
