A New Round Of Spider-Man Candidates - Preview





Logan Lerman is dead. No, wait... thats not true. Let me rephrase. Logan Lerman’s chances of playing Spider-Man in Sony’s reboot are dead. Yeah, that’s a bit more accurate and far less worrisome. Once Logan Lerman signed onto “The Three Musketeers,” he might as well have decapitated any hopes he had of putting on the webslinger’s suit. For someone who was supposedly the frontrunner for the role awhile back, he seemed to position himself out of the franchise as quickly as he was thrust into it, all via rumor and speculation. That now clears the way for discussion to get serious about who will become your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man for the 2012 film... and that conversation is picking up with a few names comprising the final shopping list of potential choices. Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you your new Spider-Man candidates...

Let's Get A Stark In That Captain America Movie - Preview





With “Iron Man 2” serving as a two-hour-plus setup for the coming “Avengers” movie in 2012, it would only make sense for more crossovers to go down between now and then, so that the various characters can be brought together over the course of a few films, the Marvel universe can continue to expand, and you can be reminded not to forget about that coming “Avengers” movie in 2012. Oh... I mentioned that part already...? Sorry about that. Marvel wants to make sure you know about the coming “Avengers” movie in 2012 and will spare no expense when it comes to raising awareness about the coming “Avengers” movie in 2012. Wait... what...? I just did it twice more...? No, i didn’t. I think I’d know if... uhh... would you look at that? I did. Good for my residual check, but bad for you. Oh well... sacrifices must be made.

Look... The Kidd is kidding (bet you never thought you’d see THAT sentence get out). Marvel isn’t paying me to promote or advertise their coming slate. It’d be nice if they were, but they’re not. However, that doesn’t mean a great deal of people and most fans aren’t already aware of what’s on the way. And every time Marvel releases a movie based around their characters, they make sure to push those ideas forward, be it an after-credits cameo or a full-blown crossover appearance. We’ve already seen Tony Stark in “The Incredible Hulk,” Nicky Fury in both “Iron Man” flicks, and Captain America’s shield and Thor’s hammer in “Iron Man 2,” so who knows what else could be lurking for next summer’s flicks? Thor and Captain America will be carrying their own movies, and, while there haven’t been many rumors about who might show up during “Thor,” things are picking up surrounding “The First Avenger: Captain America.” They involve a member of the Stark family.

A Tarantino Prequel Is Coming Without Tarantino - Preview





It’s hard to imagine any of Quentin Tarantino’s films going either the prequel or sequel route. I’m sure you’ll point out that “Kill Bill” came in two volumes, but that’s only because it wasn’t in QT’s best interests to release a four-and-a-half hour martial arts epic... so one giant movie was split into two parts. Even now, I’m interested in seeing what Tarantino might have up his sleeve for a potential third “Kill Bill,” if only because he’s never created his own franchise, and also because it’s clear he’s making it for all the right reasons - to carry out the story and explore where The Bride is after all these years, not to snag a quick buck based on the name recognition. However, if it didn’t pan out and “Volume 3” never happened, I wouldn’t be unhappy or disappointed. I’d be able to take comfort in the fact that a QT original would be on the way to fill its void. And a Tarantino prequel seems even more out of place. For a period of time, there were rumors of a Vega brothers prequel, which would unveil more than the very little we know about Vincent (John Travolta in “Pulp Fiction”) and his brother Vic/Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen in “Reservoir Dogs”). That one could be interesting in that we don’t know all that much about either of those characters from their respective movies, because there’s only so much time to devote to them within the ensemble casts of those flicks. But, once again, I’m not going to lose any sleep over the fact that, even though it was tossed around for some time, this one is probably not going to happen. I am perfectly happy and encouraged by the idea that Tarantino will only be doing new material from here on out. Strangely though, that won’t stop others from trying to prequelize his stuff.

The Potential Victims Are Lining Up For Scream 4 - Preview





The Kidd is very excited about the prospect of “Scream 4,” and you’d think it’d be the other way around. You would assume that, because the series has gotten progressively worse, I’d be bitching and complaining about why anyone feels the need to bring the Ghostface killer back for another sequel other than to make a quick cash grab in a floundering horror genre. But I love the original “Scream,” and I have tremendous loyalty to this brand. For me, “Scream” was and still is one of those movies that you feel compelled to sit and watch anytime you come across it, but more importantly, the movie holds up remarkably well. It still has bite in its satire of horror movies and their sequels and their trilogies and their conventions that have been accepted without question. In fact, I challenge you to go back and watch “Scream” again, and tell me that it’s not incredibly funny and smart and witty and fresh. That’s what really separates it from everything else that came out around that time. It was something we hadn’t really seen before, and it revived the teen slasher sub-genre. Even “Scream 2” is really good, although its weak ending forces it to take a step backwards from the original. Revisit that film, and you’ll find yourself having more fun than you remember, and coming to the realization that it is much better than you remember also. “Scream 3,” on the other hand, is a piece of shit, and you won’t be getting a defense from me for it. But, as Meatloaf taught us, two out of three ain’t bad, and that’s why I’m much more optimistic about “Scream 4” than I’ve been about any of the other reboots or sequels that have come down the pike. There’s a pedigree here that displays that 66% of the time, you’re going to get a solidly entertaining horror flick when the “Scream” name is attached.

Lindsay Lohan Won't Be Making Any Movies Where She's Going - Preview





Poor, poor Lindsay Lohan... it’s quite rare to see someone so talented throw it all away so quickly, because they’re stupid, but she manages to make it look easy. The Kidd has always been a fan of LiLo, and I’ve even reached out to try to talk to her, communicate with her, help her in some way, which probably has gone unanswered, because she doesn’t frequent the site, another mistake on her part. However, I’ve long hoped that she would get her life in order, get her shit together, punch her parents (who might be the worst parents anyone could ask for) dead in the face for enabling her ridiculous behavior, and resume the once-promising career that she’s left in shambles. But it isn’t to be, and those hopes were bludgeoned with a sledgehammer with a warrant for Lohan’s arrest being issued for failure to appear in court. Of course, all of this stems from Lohan’s probation for a previous run-in with the law, where she is required to complete alcohol education classes. Right now, as it stands, she has only finished 10 out of 13 classes, which means she could be in deep shit... and, by deep shit, that means Lindsay Lohan could find herself right smack in the middle of a women’s prison movie, only it’s not a movie, it’s real... and the inmates don’t want to do each other to help pass the time, they want to shank you to show everyone else who’s really running shit. As you can tell, all of my prison knowledge comes from late night Cinemax movies, which, if you ask me, are the best way to learn how things really work. Next week’s lesson: what happens when you don’t have money to pay the hot pizza delivery girl.

Megan Fox Is Done With The Transformers - Preview





I have no idea what the hell happened, but last night turned out to be absolute craziness. I walk out the door to see a screening of “Get Him To The Greek,” and when I step out of the theatre a couple of hours later, the world has gone berserk. Suddenly I don’t hate Russell Brand as much anymore, or at least I don’t have the constant urge to punch him in a face, and Megan Fox is off “Transformers 3.”

W... T... F...?! The Kidd didn’t see that one coming.

Eddie Murphy Really Should Just Give Up - Preview





It’s not even fair to ask “Do you remember when Eddie Murphy used to be funny?” anymore, because far too much of his career has now been spent making horrendously awful movies that the time when Eddie Murphy used to deliver edgy and entertaining material is a distant memory. Those days of down and dirty Eddie Murphy stand-up are gone. “Coming to America,” “Beverly Hills Cop,” Trading Places,” “48 Hours,” “Saturday Night Live” Eddie Murphy is dead, and he’s been dead for awhile, and he’s not coming back. While everyone in awhile, he might drop something in that gives us flashes of the once-talented comedian, like “Bowfinger” or “Dreamgirls,” but otherwise, we should accept the fact that all we’re going to get from the guy now is “The Haunted Mansion,” “Daddy Day Care,” and an entire assortment of films that suck as badly as those do. “The Nutty Professor” might be one of his better works in recent years, and, by recent, what I really mean is within the last 15 years. Even then, the second movie missed the mark, eliminating the sweetness of the first flick to go for humor more along the lines of giant hamsters sodomizing evil deans. So, when the best Eddie Murphy might have to offer to the world at this point is “The Nutty Professor 3,” my initial reaction is “Wasn’t that the point of ‘Norbit’?” And then it goes right to “Eddie Murphy really should just give up.”

Captain Jack Plans To Sail Into The 3rd Dimension - Preview





It was only a matter of time before the inevitable happened, and it’s now official. “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” will be in 3-D. And if you’re surprised by these developments in the world where everything gets a 3-D release (yes, even a “Step Up” sequel), then you really need to go off and punch yourself in the face hard. What...? I’m not there to punish you properly, so inflicting it on your own dumb ass is only fitting.

The Beouf Now Insists On Apologizing For Everything - Preview





Shia LaBeouf doesn’t want anyone to not like him, which is smart business on his end, because, if he wants to keep making movies, he can’t have people thinking everything he’s a part of is a piece of shit, which refers to his entire filmography to this point, with the exception of “Disturbia.” So, out at Cannes, Shia is taking precautionary measures to guarantee that people take an interest in “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” when it sees its U.S. release in September by apologizing for all his terrible blockbusters. Yesterday, it was “Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen.” Today, it’s “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” Yep, you’ve got to hand it to LaBeouf. When he makes a bad movie, he’ll admit to it with complete and total shame. How’s that for some honesty? If only he would give back the money people spent to those flicks... then we might really be getting somewhere.

Shia Hopes To Make Up For Transformers 2 - Preview





The Kidd still has a hard time looking at anyone the same again, if they admit to me that they really enjoyed “Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen,” especially when they throw out the most overused term these days people use when referring to movies they’ve seen - “great.” Show me someone who thinks that “Transformers 2” is a “great” movie, and I’ll show you someone who is a total fuckin’ idiot. I mean, Michael Bay has to stand beside the movie and proclaim it to be his most awesome creation to date, until he makes something else, and, as a result, Michael Bay’s mom and maybe his great aunt and a third cousin through marriage hype it up, too, but that has to be about it. Do you know who else didn’t like “Transformers 2”? The people who were in it. Megan Fox has made some less-than-positive comments on the film in the past, and now you can add another star who is willing to admit that “Revenge of the Fallen” missed the mark... badly.
