- Don't know how I feel about Frodo being in the Hobbit, even if it's just (I assume) as some sort of bookend for the movie (told in flashback?).
-Reznor scoring Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is fantastic news after the Social Network score
-Game of Thrones - if it's anywhere close to as good as the books are, best show of the year

Respect for Franco, he will be even bigger after 127 hours and Your Highness and he has been learning how to write back at school, the move is definitely a risk, but it's up to him to prove himself.

Mehh, wasn't a big fan. I mean, it was better than The Transporter 10, but, to each their own I guess.

What a good-looking picture... hahaha.

03) RIP, Pete Postlethwaite.
He will be missed.

06) What is Franco thinking?
He's thinking he's a PhD student at Yale, and has a bunch of other degrees while still making kick-ass films and working on General Hospital.

12) Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann will reprise their roles from Knocked Up in a Judd Apatow comedy of their own.
Such good news.

13) Trent Reznor will be scoring David Fincherís The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Woooooo.

I like the idea of Reznor doing the score for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, I'm just iffy about how it'll turn out as an American version.

The italian job remake? The first transporter? The bank job?

None of that really matters though since the dude dated kelly brook forever
