It's over. It can mean the best of news or the worst of news, a new beginning or the utmost in closure. Its extremity is unparalleled, its harsh clarity often benumbing. Some people found out this week what It's over meant for them. For many of the rest of us, it couldn't be over soon enough. But you can get all the more closer here with Movieline's Week in Review.
It was a week for real talk 'round these parts at Movieline HQ, with everything from Halloween to Lindsay Lohan's latest legal woes bringing everyone to terms with the truth. Like the fact that no matter how many Halloweens you live through, you'll never match Heidi Klum's level of kookiness. Then the awful truth about the monster flop The Wolfman broke, and America's favorite sparkly vampire dropped some cineaste science all over the Twilight crowd. What's going on around here?
So much went down here at Movieline HQ in the week leading into Halloween 2011, including the revelation that nobody loves Halloween more than Heidi frickin' Klum. And nobody loves arguing over the vocal stylings of patriotic Hollywood starlets more than Movieline readers! (We love you. Don't ever change.) Throw on some blue face paint and fangs and six extra arms and reminisce as we traipse into the Halloween weekend!
Whew! It's been quite the eventful week here at Movieline, what with Netflix's Qwikster dying on the vine, indie theater owners giving Universal and VOD what for, and the crazy real life developments you couldn't have dreamed up. (Random Task, we're looking at you... in fear.) Hit your Friday Week in Review and come tomorrow for the weekend stylings of Louis Virtel.
Stand back! Brace yourself! Nothing can prepare you for the rocking magnitude of the blast that is Movieline's Week in Review. Read on for all of it, but careful! Don't look directly into the light, and consider hiding the children. And in any case be stay to drop by this weekend for box-office updates and other fiery dispatches from the one and only Louis Virtel. Have a good one!
This week we learned a lot of important lessons: First, that no matter how ridiculous something sounds -- like Eddie Murphy hosting the Oscars, what a joke! Oh, right -- things can always get ridonkulouser. Also: Madonna LOATHES hydrangeas, you serf! I mean, really. Pour a scotch and try to relax as we take you back through this increasingly silly week in Movieline news.
With a whimper (and some killer sharks and space madness), the summer movie season drew to a close this week. Which is why we were looking to the future here at Movieline with our Fall Preview guide, chock full of first looks and predictions for the coming months! As you head into your long holiday weekend, take a moment to look back on our week spent looking forward to an action-packed fall movie season!
The first week of August (and the official beginning of the end of summer) rolled by in fine fashion; sure, it was at times an agonizingly slow news week, but the first looks, surprise developments, and WTF? revelations kept things bouncy. Head into the weekend with your head held high, week. You gave us plenty to munch on. For starters: The terms "Brett Ratner" and "Oscars" in the same sentence? You so crazy!
Big reveals, mildly scandalous controversies, a delicious bit of vampire honeymoon sex and a heaping of good, old fashioned nostalgia dominated the week here at Movieline HQ. Speaking of nostalgia, it's never too early to look back on our favorite top stories, right? RIGHT! Take a trip down memory lane and relive this week's biggest moments as if they hit the web only yesterday. Go on, embrace the sentimentality. Consider it Movieline's way of celebrating the the past, a la J.J. Abrams and his childhood wage labor overlord.
