If ONLY I could make this up…

– For those who haven’t heard of it, the documentary “The Cove,” is about dolphin hunting in the small fishing town of Taiji, Japan. The fisheries in the area, which are strongly for dolphin hunting, threaten to sue the filmmakers if they watch the movies and find any errors.

– Watch for the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” to return to TV (Nickelodeon) and the silver screen in 2012.

– NBC recently purchased the Weather Channel for $3.5 billion and in the spirit of edu-tainment, will begin offering movies such as “The Perfect Storm,” “Misery,” and “Deep Blue Sea.”

– Marge Simpson posed for Playboy. No telling how many people will be drawn to her centerfold…

– Set the Wayback Machine for 1984: the proposed “Beverly Hills Cop 4” is supposed to occur after the original, ignoring “2” and “3.” Why ignore “2?” I kinda liked that one…

Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend. A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead leads them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap.

– Werner Herzog’s film school teached lock-picking and bullet-dodging. I can’t tell ya how many times I wanted public school to teach that to me…
