Same Goes For You Al PacinoWith last year's "Grown Ups" we thought we had reached the nadir of Adam Sandler's laziness, a "movie" in which he conned Sony into paying for his best buddies and him to hang out, act like retards and get rewarded handsomely for the privilege. But it seems he has reached an ever lower standard than we thought possible.

Hello my summer chickadees, have your retinas grown back after the assault of "Transformers: Dark of the Moon"? I'm peeping through protective lenses as I type my weekly missive to you. This weekend doesn't hold quite as much bombast in new releases, so if your addiction to explosions and CGI rears its head, you'll have to revisit some of our earlier summer releases. Or just take it down a notch with some low brow comedy. If you like your comedy R-rated, we have "Horrible Bosses." If you want to take a kid (or you have a massive head wound), check out "The Zookeeper" with the maestro of fat man physical comedy, Kevin James. There are also a few other new selections in theaters, or you may just have to get outside and soak up the Vitamin D.

Exclusive: Director Seth Gordon, the man behind the cameras of "Four Christmases" and this weekend's "Horrible Bosses" still has people talking about his debut feature, the documentary "The King Of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters" four years since it hit theaters. The sleeper sensation was an unlikely hit, tracking Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe as they slugged out to wear the crown as the champion players of Donkey Kong. As funny and at times absurd as that story was, it was also unexpectedly tender and moving, and it's no surprise that New Line snapped up the rights to remake it into a feature film. And even as Gordon has gone on to work both in film and television on a variety of projects, "King Of Kong" is still a movie people want to talk about and thought movement has slow, we recently caught up with the director who told is it's still definitely happening.

Exclusive: To say filmmaker Michael Rapaport hasn't had an easy time in the press with his new documentary "Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest" is a bit of an understatement, but don't get it twisted. Since its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, reviews about the seminal '90s hip-hop group -- which included members Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Jarobi White, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad -- have been glowing (it has an excellent 95% RT score). But like most longtime fans of the group, after they suddenly called it quits in 1998, actor and hip hop music aficionado Michael Rapaport was deeply affected by their split. "I felt like my parents were getting divorced," he recalled. His curiosity caught up with him over the years, and when the band was reuniting for the 2008 Rock the Bells tour, he quickly jumped on board to document the tour. But past frictions flared up immediately, giving the actor-turned-filmmaker a window into a world of the drama which was to come. "I walked into a fucking storm," he said of his first few days of filming the tour.

Says He Still Hasn't Seen 'Black Water Transit' & Is Prepping A Period Film NextMatthew Chapman made waves this year at Sundance, with the premiere of "The Ledge," his first time in the director's chair since 1988's "Heart of Midnight." "The Ledge" is a thriller that follows a dangerous affair between the atheist Gavin (Charlie Hunnam) and Shana (Liv Tyler), the wife of the fundamentalist Christian Joe (Patrick Wilson).

Even though Shia LaBeouf has poured cold water on the idea of returning for another "Transfomers" movie and Michael Bay looks likely to finally get to his low budget crime pic "Pain & Gain" next, the future of the franchise is a bit of a question mark right now, but don't say the word "reboot" to producer Don Murphy.
