IESB is “reporting” that a new Star Wars trilogy is in the works:

“The ideal plan, according to our spy at Skywalker Ranch, is to be able to release a new Star Wars film within 24 months after the release of the last re-re-release (is that right?) of Return of the Jedi 3D. Too early for story details but one thing that our source is certain about, they will not be prequels but instead sequels. It’s not for certain if they will be the long awaited Episodes 7, 8 and 9 but could instead be Episodes 10, 11 and 12 or possibly even further out in the Star Wars timeline. And by giving space in the timeline, possibly even as far as 100 years or 1,000 years in the Star Wars universe future, Lucas avoids having to make these stories “fit in” with what the previous stories have told.” (more…)

October is probably my favorite month because it gives me an excuse to watch a lot of horror films to get in the mood for Halloween. (Not that I need that much of an excuse.) It also means there’s a slew of new horror films ready to be released in theaters. If you’re wondering which will be worth checking out this month and which will just be more of the same cheap scares, keep reading for a breakdown of all the horror coming your way in October.

“There’s thousands of them, and they’re pissed.”

Despite a plea from the cast and crew for Piranha 3D to be considered for Oscar nomination recently, I think it is fairly safe to say that Piranha 3D won’t be getting too close to any awards this season. In fact, I think it’s fairly safe to assume that Piranha 3D is not one of the best films out this year. A mixture of a weak storyline, bad acting, bad directing, poor use of 3D and weak attempts to push sex and blood into our faces rounds up everything about Piranha 3D. However, there is also some small amount of charm in there. Piranha 3D is exploitation cinema at its highest. It has the gore, it has a remake, it has a sequel, it has the sex, and it has the extra couple of dollars earned for it being in 3D. It knows that it’s never going to leave much of an impression on the audience, except a few cheap laughs. (more…)

Lee Unkrich, 2010 / “You got a friend in me.”

Toy Story 3 is the latest film to be produced by the masters at Pixar Studios, and although Toy Story 3 s not up to the standards of their previous works such as Up and Wall:E, it still maintains the high standards that has come to be expected for them. It is funny, sad, and an amazing effort that deals with mature themes while keeping them extremely family friendly. To start with, the short film, Day and Night, is a cute adventure that tells of two animated drawings that reasonable ghost-like characters on a black background, with one showing day-time images in its profile, and the other showing night. They go around showing the contrasting images, and the everyday sounds of each setting providing a humours soundtrack (for example, in Las Vegas). This simple use of sound and basic image gives these two simple images personality, and is in my opinion the best of Pixars short films. (more…)

Christopher Nolan, 2010 / “If I'm going to perform Inception, then we need imagination.”

Inception arrived today among a great deal of hype and expectation. Christopher Nolan is the, at least for the average-cinema fan, the biggest name in 2000s film. Hitting the scene with Memento, and then most recently with the rebooting of the Batman franchise, Nolan has done no wrong in his career so far. After pleasing critics, Batman fans and Warner Bros., Nolan decided to take on a more personal, low-budget film as a quick break between the second and third Batman movies. Well, he missed out on the low-budget aspect, but Inception is a Nolan movie, about making a Nolan movie, and it is about as epic as it can get. (more…)
