Indiana Jones 5 On The Way

15 09 2009

It was inevitable. Despite the negative critical and fan reaction (see, South Park) to 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, it appears that Harrison Ford will be returning for a fifth adventure as Indy. Speaking at the Deauville Film Fesitval where he was being honored, Ford said that he had come together with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas and agreed on the plot outline for the fifth film and work is set to begin on the script.

Susan Sarandon Gets Greedy

26 08 2009

Loews Lincoln SqureThe cast is starting to round out for Oliver Stone’s sequel to Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps as Susan Sarandon has stepped on board. In the film, Sarandon will play Shia LaBeouf’s mother, what I am positive is a vital role to the story (note: not). In addition to the mother-son pairing, the film also sees Michael Douglas reprise his role as Gordon Gekko, and recently signed Frank Langella to play an aging mentor. Read the rest of this entry »

Trailer: New York, I Love You

New York I Love You

Paris, je t’aime is one of my favorite films from the past five years. Each time I watch it, I am stunned by its complexity and its ability to capture the city so perfectly. More so, those responsible for its creation, actors, writers and directors alike, were all of the highest caliber – not one stuck out as a being so untalented that had no place getting involved with the film.

Then I heard wind that they were making a semi-sequel that would focus on New York. Living a half-hour outside the city for my entire life, I liked the idea, despite the fact that the movie was already made in 1989 – New York Stories directed by Francis Ford Coppola, Woody Allen, and Martin Scorsese. But therein lies the problem: Coppola, Allen and Scorsese are the ultimate New York directors. None other in the history of cinema has been able to capture the greatest city in the world like Scorsese and Allen (and to a lesser extent Coppola).

So who did they select to direct a segment of the new film? Brett Ratner. Read the rest of this entry »

WTF? Shia is Apparently God to Some Sections of the Population

29 07 2009


Here at Geek on Film, we are not the biggest Shia LaBeouf fans…at all. In fact, if the Star Wars prequels hadn’t been made, it would probably have been Shia’s presence and performance in the 4th Indiana Jones that would have sworn us off Bearded McSellout forever. Some people disagree and, in fact, like him quite a bit.

What you will see if you click on that link is a website called Shiantology, which, you can infer, is where Shia fans go to worship all that is Shia…like a God. And what this worship leads to is badly photoshopping Shia’s head onto religious icons. Worse yet, despite the incredible number of religious zealots and nutbags in this country, not a single person has referred to the incredible blaspheme that these photos represent. Instead, they make veiled sexual references, such as this one by “Betsy”:

“hey boy… i have something to tell you in your confesshianall”

Bad spelling aside, this is fairly creepy. I have posted a couple of them here, but you can check out the rest over at the site. Meanwhile, I’ll be in the corner weeping.

28 07 2009

Josh Brolin will be reuniting with W. director Oliver Stone in the sequel to Wall Street according to Deadline Hollywood Daily’s Nikki Finke.
