You don't have to worry about them sucking. They are definitely going to suck. What you should hope for is that they don't make money. If they do then there will be sequels and further time wasted on other board game movies.

HELLO!?!?!! Where's news on Wizard of Oz 3-D? That has to be an incredibly rotten story. Come on!

Just googled it; this is even worse than the colorization crap of the 1980s. My motto is if it resides in the Library of Congress, don't f*ck with it.

Didn't include it because as of right now, it looks like it's going to just be a 3D Blu Ray release. No word yet on theatrical.

Agent Colson directed Choke? That is just too random, i never would have guessed that. Choke is an awesome movie(except for the ending).

I wasn't aware of the film, but thanks for bringing it to my attention. I don't have much information to go by with the Diana crash, but I've heard many unsubstantiated rumors (rumours, btw) like her being pregnant or the driver being drunk or it being a family conspiracy, etc. My favorite theory is that it was an occult murder to bring about a new matriarch religion in the icon of Diana, and that Dan Brown made the Merovingian (French descendents of Jesus and Mary) connection for this purpose. Being my favorite theory should not be confused as having any semblance to what I may actually believe, of course. Dan Brown and his Priory of Sion have been shown to be hoaxes. It doesn't negate the intention of those attempting the hoax.

Re #5: ...Wait. Hollywood's making a major motion picture that's already been one of the worst episodes of Futurama? And was already a worn-out comic-book cliche then? I mean, they even titled it "Mobius Dick."

Hungry, Hungry Hippos? Stop, please stop this garbage. If the studios have not collectively beat the dead horse of toy/movie tie-ins enough, then please scrap all of the above and do the Micronauts.

Mobius? Could be cool. Time will tell.
