Apple – Trailers – Spider-Man 3
Oh, man. I can’t wait for this. I’m impressed by how many effects shots they already have done, and it’s still a year before it comes out.
Word is that this trailer will be playing with Superman Returns, so I should be seeing it on the big screen within the week!
Michael Bay takes his crash, slam, bang frenzied filmmaking and applies it to Logan’s Run.
Okay, it’s not quite that useless, but if I’m falling asleep during action sequences you know there are too many action sequences. Seriously. I didn’t think I’d ever say that, but he drove me to it.
And what the heck was with that big “R” logo scene. That was the breaking point for me. If they come out of that . . . → Read More: Review: The Island
People need to learn how to drive.
I was in a traffic jam this morning in the right lane of the highway. Dead stop. I was not happy.
Meanwhile, in the left lane, people were moving at about 20-30mph. This confused me. After a few minutes I found a break in the left lane traffic and I managed to move over and get going. Then I finally reached a sign that described the problem: “Left . . . → Read More: Traffic jams
Learning 2006-2005 Information – Free PodCasts Video – CNN Pipeline
I don’t have a subscription to CNN Pipeline, but from what I’m seeing here it appears to be really interesting technology with superb flexibility and most importantly, a user-based focus. Elliot’s challenge to incorporate this kind of interface into corporate intranets for knowledge sharing is a bit unrealistic at this point, but may be something some companies can shoot for (others will find it to . . . → Read More: CNN Pipeline: A learning perspective, & Blogs in learning
FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH | Bryce Zabel: Spaced Out: Hawking Colonies & Re-Booting Star Trek
Bryce Zabel (Dark Skies, Lois & Clark) and J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5, Crusade, Jeremiah) were sitting around in 2004 talking about the poor turnout in the Star Trek franchise and came up with an idea to reinvigorate it. And they wrote it down. And now, with J.J. Abrams named as the head of the next proposed Star Trek offering, . . . → Read More: Star Trek, Babylon 5 style: Concept pitch revealed
I learned at least two things from this movie:
Bobby Darin sang a much wider range of songs than I thought Kevin Spacey can sing
Actually, despite the unapologetic fictionalization of Darin’s life, I feel like I learned a lot about Bobby Darin. When I first started watching the movie, and it became obvious that an autobiographical movie within the biographical movie was going to be the narrative theme, I was really worried that it . . . → Read More: Review: Beyond the Sea
NBC.com > Heroes “They thought they were like everyone else… until they woke with incredible abilities.”
When I first heard of this show, I figured it would be an X-Men rip-off, similar to Mutant X. After having watched the preview, though, I really think this has the potential to be a good series. It seems to lean more toward the take of M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable, though not with his trademark quiet mysteriousness.

According to the shows creator/producer, Shawn Piller, the season starting next Sunday will not be the final season, as previously stated. Plans have already been made for two more seasons.
This is welcome news. I really like the show and they are taking it in an interesting direction. I’d hate to see them cut short the . . . → Read More: The Dead Zone: Back from the dead
This wasn’t nearly as bad as the box office, and critics, led me to believe.
Was it as good as “The Mask of Zorro”? No. Not really. But it was a pretty good popcorn action flick.
The story just took too long to develop, and the business with the Pinkertons was a bit stupid, in my opinion, but the fight scenes were fun, as were one or two of the one-liners. Nice, non-threatening, escapism entertainment. . . . → Read More: Review: The Legend of Zorro
