Secrets Unmasked at "The Amazing Spider-Man" Truck Tour

The great thing about living in a major metropolitan area is that movie studios target the area as a heavy promotional market. The Dallas / Fort Worth, TX Metroplex always seems to figure into the aggressive advertising campaigns for big-budget franchise films. One such tour is "The Amazing Spider-Man Secrets Unmasked" Truck Tour, which made a stop in Grand Prairie this past weekend.

Blu-ray Review: 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows'

I'm a big Sherlock Holmes fan. I read the abridged adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles as a kid and was immediately addicted. I was then introduced to Basil Rathbone's movie version of the sleuth. Over the years, I've read a few of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's short stories and loved them all. Unlike many Sherlockians, I had no problem with Robert Downey Jr. playing the character. I thoroughly enjoyed his unique, physically fit, and active exploits in Guy Ritchie's first Sherlock Holmes film.

What do you do when you release a movie and the co-star's character makes just as much of an impact on viewers as the main actor? Obviously you find a way to exploit the situation by coming up with another project to put that actor and character into. That's exactly what producers of "The Fugitive" did with Tommy Lee Jones' law enforcer, Sam Gerard.

Channel Control: Stars Walk Red Carpet for New 'Dallas'

You can’t keep a good thing down. 14 years after their last public debacle, the Ewing family is returning to the primetime limelight in the resurrected “Dallas.” The show officially went off the air in 1991 after 13 seasons, a miniseries, and a TV-movie. TV-movies reunited the Ewings in 1996 and 1998, proving that fans couldn’t get enough drama from Texas’ first family of oil. Now they’re back again and they’ve dragged the kids into it.
