Frank Miller
"Sin City" director Frank Miller has taken aim at the Occupy Wall Street protesters in a furious new blog post, urging the anti-corporate greed activists to get organized or go home.

While many celebrities are supporting the movement, which began in New York over two months ago and is now spreading worldwide, the writer/director is far from impressed with what he's seen and he considers the individuals taking part nothing more than "losers."

He writes, "The 'Occupy' movement... is nothing but a pack of louts, thieves, and rapists, an unruly mob, fed by Woodstock-era nostalgia and putrid f...

Things We Don't Want To See In 'The Dark Knight'

June 11th, 2008 8:45am EDT
The Dark Knight
There were eight years between "Batman & Robin" (1997) and "Batman Begins" (2005), which became a blockbuster hit, and it was no wonder considering the extremely negative backlash "Batman & Robin" received. With cringe-worthy puns from all of the main actors - George Clooney, Uma Thurman, Alicia Silverstone, etc. - and a lack of any plot substance or inner contemplation the previous movies had showed, it seemed like the Batman movies would be given an early grave.

Then Christopher Nolan signed on to the "Batman Begins" project, a film loosely based off of "Batman: Year One" written by...
