Netflix Double Feature: Cabin in the Woods & This is the End

 

It's almost Halloween, which means it's time to curl up indoors with a couple of scary -- and hilarious --movies. This weekend, we have a very special double feature suggestion: Joss Whedon's Cabin In The Woods followed by Seth Rogen's This Is The End.

More 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Rumors Warp Through The Internet

Rumors, rumors, rumors.  Sometimes I feel like that's all we write about.  It gets a little tiring, doesn't it?  Especially when the best ones are those which inevitably turn out to be false.  Didn't it sound awesome when Josh Brolin was in consideration to play Batman?  Good times.  Here's yet another round of the things, and it certainly won't be the last.  These are for Star Wars: Episode VII , and they include a possible title and some recurring elements we'll see.

Clint Eastwood Gets Behind The Director's Scope Of 'American Sniper'

In the age of space battle and dragons, it's easy to forget that there's been plenty of crazy bad-ass action stories derived from real life.  Like 300!  Just kidding, I'm thinking moreso about American Sniper. It's the true story of Chris Kyle, a sniper with a record-breaking 150 kills in the course of his career.  It's set to star Bradley Cooper and was going to be directed by Steven Spielberg, though that recently changed.
