There are spoilers…but you’ve all seen it several times, so check out his thoughts.
Toldja there was a big announcement coming! Metro Med Special Edition #1 is now available at IndyPlanet. It’s 36 beautiful pages, with two Metro Med stories, pinups, character profiles, a new Annotations section, plus an all-new color 1-page story on the back cover. As a bonus, I included my out-of-print story “Melvin and Marvin Middler, …
From Neo to Eel, apparently. Keanu Reeves is set to portray Plastic Man in a movie made by the Wachowski “brothers”. The Wachowskis are the one-hit wonders who couldn’t figure out how to rebottle their lightning from the Matrix and turn it into a franchise. Recently, they stunk up the cineplexes with a Speed Racer …
I’m not dead. I’m getting better. I know, there hasn’t been much activity around here. Blame illness, gardening, a niece who’s on my computer checking out Facebook all evening and a very addictive new Wii game or three. What’s coming: My overdue Wizard World recap. My overdue announcement. My overdue review of Matamoros. That’s probably …
We should not expect any different. It’s no question that Christian Bale had some trouble keeping up with his co-star on screen. The real question is how can a living actor compete with the Joker’s Spectre for an Academy Award.
Here’s my review: WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! WOOO–HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Wow! This movie was so good that my wife and my niece both thought it was fantastic. (I don’t think Melinda even watched the first one!) Melinda was actually swooning over Heath Ledger…which just made her sad, of course. She, too, thinks he gives an Oscar-caliber performance, so that isn’t …
Give it a look. Positives: * Ozymandias’ costume was always the worst one, so the change here is fine. * I’m glad to see this looking much more faithful to the original story than the previous leaked scripts. No doubt the comic-to-screen versions of Sin City and 300 have helped. Negatives: * Why does Nite …
Forget pirates vs. ninjas. Is there anyone who ISN’T at least intrigued by the concept of Vikings vs. aliens?
I have four reactions: Untouchables music. I know, all trailers use music from other films (or pop songs), but I’ve memorized that movie so I can’t get that out of my head. Probably not a problem for most everyone else. 2. “I’m on my way.” WHY would they steal the trailer catchphrase from the first …
The Bat-hype machine has contacted me with some promotional videos and a Flash game promoting the new Batmovie. I hereby command my legions to go and visit at once! Both of you! The game isn’t bad. Though…why is it Movie Batman is always firing bullets at people? From the Batwing in the 1989 movie to …
Mother of Mercy! I don’t speak Japanese!
I’d never before seen this documentary about sloths. My sides hurt.
Hulu (which webcasts the “Writer’s Room” series I’ve mentioned before) also has SNL sketches. Years of them, actually. Unfortunately, they’re hard to search, so you just have to page through them five at a time in no particular order. Here are some of my faves so you don’t have to hunt for them: More to …
I found Wall-E to be emotionally manipulative, and I suppose if one is capable, or equipped to manipulate my emotions, given that I essentially have none, Disney Pixar deserves some large amount of credit. Musical composers, students, and psychologists (often) argue that music, properly wielded, can make person’s mood sunnier, or take a cheery visual …
