K-Lo points out that there’s a little-known third Brady Bunch movie from 2002 called The Brady Bunch in the White House in which Mike Brady becomes president of the USA and then appoints his wife as Vice President. Now…how bad … Continue reading
No, it’s not a Vodka ad. Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Absolute Edition is an oversized volume reprinting Crisis plus loaded with extras such as the complete Indexes and notes about changes to DC Comics in the last 20 years … Continue reading
World’s first bionic man! HE’S REAL and he cost SIX MILLION!!! It’s here! It’s here! Bionic Man Moves Artificial Arm With Brain As if that wasn’t weird enough, get this (emphasis mine): By the time it’s perfected, the cost of … Continue reading
Look, I don’t care about celebrity romances. Usually, Hollywood marriage stuff just depresses me, and half of it is false anyway. But Tom Cruise is currently in the running to take the “celebrity who creeps me out” trophy away from … Continue reading
Herbie: Fully Loaded, which features a far more cartoony Herbie car, inspires this question: The car seems to be self-aware, able to make decisions on its own, and able to communicate with Maggie on an emotional level, and sometimes with … Continue reading
There’s this joke that is impossible to relate in clean company, and I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve heard it once in an unofficial (and perhaps counterfeit, although the voices and animation are spot-on) South Park clip of Cartman telling … Continue reading
Top 10 Ways to Destroy Earth
The Onion 2056 is the funniest Onion read in ages. Also, their design looks spectacular and I hate them.
Be sure to go outside and check out the moon tonight so you can see the Summer Moon Illusion. Remember that monster moon in “Joe vs. The Volcano”? Of course you don’t. How about the moon from Cher’s “Moonstruck”, where … Continue reading
Greg Biffle notched his fifth win of the NASCAR Nextel Cup season by taking today’s Batman Begins 400 at Michigan International Speedway. Last season Biffle won the Fall race at MIS while carrying a special one race paint scheme featuring … Continue reading
Alan Kistler here again. For many years now (though admittedly, not originally) Batman has been my favorite comic book super-hero. One of the major reasons for this is that he’s so complicated you can have endless arguments with other people … Continue reading
This Steve Carell movie, The 40 Year Old Virgin, looks to be amusing.
The ‘Ex’ files: Wilson eyes Regency lead Luke Wilson is in negotiations to topline “Super Ex” for Regency Enterprises. Ivan Reitman is on board to direct the feature, which is being produced by Gavin Polone from a script by Don … Continue reading
One of the joys of getting older as a writer is that my memory is going and I can re-read my old works as though someone else wrote them. I wanted to find an old comparison I’d read of “Scrooge … Continue reading
Universal Rethinks Boxing Film Plan Why did “Cinderella Man” fail? Because it’s called “CINDERELLA MAN”! That is just the worst title I’ve ever heard. If you are going to go to a movie about a tough guy doing everything he … Continue reading
Cheerleaders disciplined for putting feces on pizza
Earning His Wings features this terrific appraisal (emphasis mine): The rugged charm of “Batman Begins,” which stars Welsh actor Christian Bale, lies partly its refusal to join the visual-effects arms race that the summer-movie season has lately become. When Nolan … Continue reading
Batman Begins has some scenes that are so dramatically intense that I was in tears. Nothing like crying at a movie while you’re attending it with a gaggle of comic geeks in superhero shirts, so take a hankie.
What a truly monumental movie for the genre… we saw a midnight IMAX format showing that was about 80% full… the picture and sound quality was stunning… the film comes across as paced solid… the cast is exceptional… yes, I … Continue reading
