Trainspotting

Right now on Cinematical

The folks at our sister site Cinematical are working hard to give you news and reviews of the best -- and worst -- the silver screen has to offer. Here are some of their latest musings on the latest blockbusters, indies, and everything in between:

  • Maybe it makes me a dork, but I saw a trailer for The Unborn, and thought it was really creepy. It kind of made me want to die. Read Cinematical's review and see if it's any good.
  • When I had my baby recently, do not think for a second that I wasn't lying in that hospital bed thinking about the dead baby on the ceiling from Trainspotting. The point? Kids in movies can be creepy as hell. The Cinematical Seven lists the most terrifying.
  • You know who the most awesome girl in the world is right now? The 12-year-old who made her own feature-length zombie movie. Watch the trailer for Zombie Girl: The Movie.
  • Oh, man. There has been quite the heated debate about female superheroes all around the internet this week. Do women really not care about superheroes? Cinematical weighs in.
  • Sometimes movies really are better than the books on which they're based. A Time to Kill being my favorite example. What are yours? Discuss over on Cinematical.

Jonny Lee Miller: In the Limelight

Jonny Lee MillerWhen I first saw the commercials for ABC's Eli Stone, I didn't recognize Jonny Lee Miller. Then, after watching the first episode and liking him, I decided to find out who he was. Imagine my surprise when I learned that I had seen him, multiple times, in a variety of roles. And he was British! I was duly impressed and intrigued. Jonny Lee Miller was a helluva an actor, a chameleon who could be as convincing as a junkie named Sick Boy in Trainspotting as he was a San Francisco lawyer named Eli.

UK Big Brother creators planning Rock Star Rehab

Pete DohertyMaybe it's our culture's litigiousness that inhibits American tabloids. Don't get me wrong. American tabloids, paparazzi and reality shows will definitely be held up by future archaeologists as evidence of the rapid decline of our civilization, but it is the British equivalent of these outlets that get the high marks for tastelessness. Case in point, the producers of the UK's Big Brother have announced plans for another reality outing - Rock Stars in Rehab. (Technically, it's the Dutch company Endemol producing the show, but it's being made for British TV.)

The company has approached high profile heroin addict Pete Doherty, the crack-addicted Dominic Masters of The Others and ex-Celeb Big Brother contestant Donny Tourette to appear in the series. The show would essentially lock all these addicts in a house together and film them 24-7. Critics have chastised Endemol for "using drug problems as entertainment and treating addiction like a joke." Really, if you want to be entertained by a bunch of recovering heroin addicts, rent Trainspotting.
