What I Want for Christmas

Is it too much to ask that Fight Club get the Criterion treatment? The fact that the film's presence is still felt more than ten years later should be enough. The film captured the zeitgeist of an era more solidly than anything else offered. Reward it.

Harrison Ford to stop pretending to care about acting and go back to the ranch. Look, I know you don't really care about doing films anymore and I don't care to sit through you mailing it in. You can't be bitter about audiences not going to see your films when you don't care enough to actually perform in them. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Better audience turnout. Granted, I understand that Jack and Jill absolutely commands your attention, but there were a lot of great, underperforming films out there: Drive, 50/50, and Take Shelter. And if that weren't enough to convince you, then let Guillermo Del Toro try, "When they ask why does Hollywood make such shitty movies it's because when they do make great ones, you don't f_cking show up!"

An Aaron Sorkin penned Steve Jobs biopic. I think this one speaks for itself.

Now, I would like to take a minute to be thankful for all of the good films coming in the next cinematic year: The Dark Knight Rises and Django Unchained, another effort from Martin McDonagh (In Bruges), and anything Terence Malick has to offer.

Happy Holidays to you all!

For my money there is nothing cooler than the idea of a city folding in on itself.

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.

The Avengers hits theatres in 2012.
