It's only January, but all these superhero buzz has been traveling faster than a speeding bullet. But this weekend's breaking news is BIG, powerful in fact, more powerful than a loco... [ok, enough with the catchphrases]. Anyway, if you're up on movie news or happened to be on Twitter yesterday, then you've probably heard it... …

Happy 37th Birthday, Christian Bale!

Christian Charles Philip Bale turns 37 today! I've always been a fan of his work for the last two decades. Out of about 34 feature films he has done so far, I've seen 20 of them, even the ones that I normally would never see (American Psycho). I can't exactly remember what was the first …

Conspicuous Trailer of the Week: SENNA documentary

I saw a tweet about Ayrton Senna's documentary trailer being released this week and I immediately remembered how my car-enthusiast brother used to talk about him. Senna was and still is considered the greatest motor racing driver of all time... practically a Saint in his native Brazil. His sudden tragic death came on Sunday, May …

Weekend Viewing Roundup: House of Flying Daggers, Legend of the Guardians

It's kind of an uneventful weekend for me... it's just another super cold January day. And when I say cold, I mean face-numbing, ears-hurtin', still-freezing-my-@$$-off-despite-wearing-two-thick-layer-under-my-pants type of subzero temp. It's kinda depressing when someone said on the way home from work that "hey, it's actually 20 degrees 'warmer' than this morning" and it's barely 3 …

Oooh, my inner fangirl has been so spoiled lately!
