The Green Hornet is a comic book buzzkill

Oh good, another wealthy costumed vigilante with daddy issues. Does anyone else feel like we're using the same fill-in-the-blank template for these movies?

2010 Holiday Preview: A naughty and nice list

Hollywood definitely saved its best for last in 2010. No single movie looks to dominate the box office the way "Avatar" did last year, nor does any movie look poised to sweep the awards season (although "The Social Network" seems to be leading the pack for the moment).
