Actors Will Play Multiple Roles In ProjectTo date, The Wachowskis have never quite lived up to their promise. After a strong debut with lesbian noir "Bound," they reinvented the action movie with "The Matrix," a film as seriously influential as any since "Star Wars" -- hence the slavish copycats that have clogged up sci-fi pictures in the last 10 years. But the sequels were bloated and near-unwatchable, failing to understand what made the first film special, while their only other directorial credit since -- "Speed Racer" -- gave us a giant headache, even if we can sort of understand those who defend it as a piece of pop art.

Our favorite movie of all time -- one that we've even puzzled ourselves with our repeat reportage of -- is Garry Marshall's "New Year's Eve." Or it will be when it eventually comes out.

Recently, Badass Digest reported that Halle Berry will be starring in "The Student" for Dutch director Paul Verhoeven known for "Showgirls," "Starship Troppers" and the excellent, late-career redeeming "Black Book" in 2006. The problem: This is news to everyone in both camps. Reps for Halle Berry, her CAA agents and Relativity Media, the studio behind this picture, call this story a "fantastic idea, but sadly it isn't true." Reps for Verhoeven also say this is untrue, his management goes so far as to say it's, "totally inaccurate."

Sending a signal to Oscar prognosticators, the fake-intellectuals who mock "Iron Man" and masturbate to "The King's Speech," a phalanx of critics organizations revealed their top honors this weekend, drawing a line in the sand. Their message? "The Social Network" is on one side of that line, and all other movies are on the other. The Los Angeles Film Critics Association, the New York Film Critics Online and the Boston Society Of Film Critics selected the David Fincher drama as the year's best film, while the AFI listed the film as one of the year's (unranked) 10 best.
