It oozes sex.

'Sex Tape' May Have Bombed Due To Its Title
Not many people thought "Sex Tape" was very sexy. The romantic comedy made just $15 million at the box office this weekend, and movie executives believe the title was to blame.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Sony distribution chief Rory Bruer explained: "We made a sweet, funny romantic comedy with stars that we love, but the title is a little confusing to some folks. There's definitely a sweetness to it, and we hope we end up being around for a long while. We also have a strong opportunity overseas."

The movie centers on Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz), who after 10 years...

Twin Peaks
A few weeks ago I got a very large yellow envelope containing two cards with some very familiar images on one side (cup of coffee, slice of pie, blue rose!) and an invitation on the other. The event proposed was a rare exclusive treat for a David Lynch fan like myself – a chance to see the World Premiere Screening of The Missing Pieces which are a full 90 minutes of Deleted and Extended Scenes from the film "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" on the big screen.
