While never approaching the realm of a genre classic, even the most ardent detractor of Brett Ratner had to be surprised by 2011's “Tower Heist,” his most competent and enjoyable film since “Rush Hour 2.” Alan Arkin and the return of Eddie Murphy, Actor, helped that film greatly. But meanwhile, Ratner has also found success in the producer's chair, shepherding projects such as “Catfish,” “Mirror, Mirror” and “Horrible Bosses” to fruition, and now it seems he's set his gaze on remake territory for his latest endeavor.

Even for a series of books with a youngish fanbase, it must have been dispiriting for those with a vested interest in "The 39 Clues," a series of adventure novels written by multiple authors, which number 15 to date, that Steven Spielberg, who was initially eying the project as a potential directorial effort, was replaced by cinephile bete noire Brett Ratner. While it's not a backslide of quite the same degree, the latest change in personnel on the long-gestating film can't delight too many fans either.

Talked about for years and years, we figured the proposed sequel to "Midnight Run" was one of those things -- like "Ghostbusters 3" -- that was never going to happen for a variety of reasons. But who knew that Brett Ratner, of all people, was going to be the guy to get this thing rolling?

You know, we give Brett Ratner a lot of heat around here -- and he can certainly make it easy -- but in the case of "I Want My MTV: The Uncensored Story Of The Music Video Revolution," this is actually a project perfectly suited for the producer and director.

Somewhere along the way during the press circuit for "Tower Heist" last fall, Brett Ratner's brain malfunctioned. In a string of high publicized incidents, the director managed to brag about banging Olivia Munn, tell a Q&A audience that rehearsals were for "fags" before going on "The Howard Stern Show" and giving a no holds barred account of: his sperm count; how condoms strangle his cock; throwing baloney on a girl's ass; his preference for how vaginas are groomed; how he sends a woman to his doctor before he sleeps with them; and a detailed account of the time he was caught screwing a Victoria Secret's model only to be walked in on by his then girlfriend Lindsay Lohan. We're not making this up (listen to it here). Needless to say, he got in all kinds of hot water and had to step down as producer of the Oscars. But Ratner is plotting his comeback trail.

Listen, going to the movies rules, but sometimes, you just want to sit on the couch with giant bag of [insert favorite snack food here] and watch TV. And considering the insane of great stuff these days on the small screen, it doesn't take much convincing to stay home. So here's a brief round up of some TV bits and bobs.

You're not going to have Brett Ratner to kick around anymore. At least not for the next little while. After a disastrous press tour for "Tower Heist" which found the helmer managing to offend as many people as possible, Ratner stepped down from his role as the producer of this year's Oscar ceremony in order to "learn from this experience." But he's also a busy man, and this downtime will allow him to focus on a number of projects he has in the works including a new film with Eddie Murphy and the spy drama "Hunting Eichmann," but it seems he has another we haven't heard of before.

If you've ever wondered what a Brett Ratner produced Oscar telecast would be like, well, you're probably never going to find out. While we eagerly awaited to see how Chris Tucker would be utilized in the broadcast in February, it looks like the words coming out the mouth of Ratner have rubbed the shrimp loving folks of the Academy the wrong way. THR has revealed that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has ousted Ratner from producing the telecast has accepted Ratner's decision to step down from the gig. An open letter explaining his decision is forthcoming.
