Now that California's been Governated, Arnold Schwarzenegger has a lot of time on his hands, and purportedly wants to get back to what he does best, i.e. snapping bad guy necks, using them as human shields, and making a barely discernible quip. Onscreen.

How the latter has managed to "kick some ice" without him we'll never know. It seemed very possible that another of his signature roles, superspy Harry Tasker in "Tr...

Children's books made into movies go over much better when viewed in two age brackets: when the audience is comprised of children who have recently read the book, or when the audience is comprised of adults so far removed from childhood that anything resembling their favorite book is romanticized and judged in a less se...
