Tell you what, we’ve only got a new bloody writer! The glorious Janina Matthewson can be found across the Internet writing for everyone from NASA (that might be a lie) to our little-sister site Work in Prowess, and she’s finally scaled the walls of Best For Film Towers to shower us with opinions and that. Ever wanted help justifying your refusal to watch anything but Labyrinth, over and over again? Welcome home.
Tom Cruise isn’t in them…at least, that’s what they want you to think.
The unseen footage from Apollo 18, which is released today, will give us historically accurate and scientifically verifiable accounts of why we never returned to the moon.

But, there are some go-getting young gunslingers in the acting community who want to go the extra mile and really get involved with the world outside the film industry. And here they are. A list of my favourite actors who want to make a difference.
I’ll never know what made the mysterious Banksy make a pretty accesible opening sequence for The Simpsons but gosh dammit, I wish I could. With his anti-agendas, why hook up with “The Man”? Yes, artists are allowed to get involved in other stuff but all I can say is “Keep It Real”. It’s on. Banksy vs Dali.
Probably the best news of all time; Napoleon Dynamite is being made into a six episode animated series with the entire film cast expected to provide voices for the show, although I wonder if Tina, the fat lard of a llama will be present in the studio.
After years of being a leader in world of comedy (the Simpsons? Spinal Tap? Saturday Night Live?)
