WARNING: SPOILERS all up in the conference room.
Never trust an organized entity, especially if it has a 401K plan.
As this week's new thriller "The East" chronicles a former FBI agent's transition to a private job at a sinister intelligence agency, we thought we'd look back at the rich history of evil movie corporations and separate the maniacally, outrageously, inexcusably evil from the "Aw, that's cute, look at them trying to be evil" evil.

Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice. Studios love sequels because seven times out of ten they open huge, no matter how good they are. Get More »
Times change, styles change, technology changes. But in Hollywood, some things are timeless: A cool movie is still a cool movie and a star is still a star.
That's the takeaway from the fantastic array of new retro-posters from artist Peter Stults, who has taken some of today's biggest hits — "The Hangover," "Avatar" and "Inception" among them — and revealed what they might have looked like if they had been filmed with the stars of yesterday.
And they look pretty awesome. Get More »
But ... but it's the highest-grossing movie of all time! And moneymaking equals goodness!
Hey, we all love "Avatar." And you do, too, whether you realize it or not. There's just something about Pandora and its crazy creatures and amazing scenery and tree-hugging natives that casts a cinematic spell of charm and delight.
But, okay, yeah ... it's not a perfect film. It has a few flaws. Maybe even more than a few. We'll admit that if only because you know James Cameron won't. And we love him for it. Get More »
You should never use too much flash ... even when taking pictures of movie stars.
The pesky "red eye" effect that often occurs in flash photography can be easily fixed these days with Photoshop and other nifty image editing programs, but just because we've got the digital tools and the digital talent doesn't mean the phenomenon doesn't happen any less often. Get More »
Now we're trying to picture Jason Bourne all tall and blue and Na'vi-like.
Matt Damon could've starred in "Avatar" and is still kind of upset that he didn't, according to Hollywood.com. The "Promised Land" star was James Cameron's first choice for the lead role of Jake Sully.
"I particularly wanted to work with James Cameron, and still do," Damon said in an interview with Playboy. "He knew he was the star of that movie and that everyone was going to see it anyway. When he said, 'Look, I'm offering it to you, but if you say no, the movie doesn't need you,' I remember thinking, 'Oh God, not only do I have to say no because of scheduling, but he's going to make a star out of some guy who's going to to start taking jobs from me later.'"

James Cameron is not one to rest on his laurels.
While many assumed that after he completes his "Avatar" trilogy (sometime before the end of this decade), he would immediately dive into his long-planned Japanese manga adaptation "Battle Angel," it's apparently not so.
It seems Iron Jim wants in on the whole "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"/"Bourne Identity" bandwagon as he sets his sights on adapting Taylor Stevens' novel "The Informationist," which The Hollywood Reporter says his Lightstorm Entertainment has just purchased for him to make at 20th Century Fox.

This week: Wes Anderson's latest heartfelt comedy, "Moonrise Kingdom," chronicles the great romance between two 12-year-old runaways during the summer of 1965.
Also new this week is the animated sequel "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted," the found footage-ish horror flick "Chernobyl Diaries," the Adam Sandler comedy "That's My Boy" and an edition of "Avatar" on Blu-ray 3D that one can buy without it being bundled with a hardware purchase. Get More »
This just in, two more absurdly beautiful people have just tied the knot.
Supermodel Agyness Deyn and "Avatar" actor Giovani Ribisi made it official last Friday in a ceremony in the City of Angels.
As reported by Celebuzz, the 29-year-old English model and the 37-year-old actor married without any fanfare at the L.A. County Registrar's office in East Los Angeles, California. Way to keep it simple, guys. Get More »
I've seen "Snow White and the Huntsman" and I'm here to tell you that, when you factor in the free air conditioning, it is not the worst way to spend two hours. (This may not apply to readers in Alaska.)
The film is beautiful to look at, ends big and features a hallucinogenic mushroom that makes you think your hands are melting off. (Faaaaaaar out.)
In "Snow White and the Huntsman" you get to spend time with Thor (he's got an axe this time, not a hammer), seven of your favorite British "That Guys" shrunk down to dwarf size (hey, it's a mini Al Swearengen) plus Charlize Theron talking to the wall. Get More »
