I mentioned last week that I was a guest on a podcast over at Lee and Dan's Midnight Movie Club. The show has now been released so head over andGreetings, Program!

This is probably my favorite short film to date. I'm sure that says something about me. This really is an amazing job. My favorite is the Tetris demolition. Frogger was a niceNew York destroyed by Pixels!

Comcast ran an "exclusive" interview with Joss Whedon, creator of the scif-fi series, Firefly and it's follow-up movie, Serenity. Fans of the series have been talking about a movie trilogySerenity/Firefly — End of the line

I'm pretty sure my wife will have no problem confirming this: I'm addicted to The Sing-Off.  Last year's show blew my mind with the talent involved. This year matches thatThe Sing-Off: recap and predictions

I'm winning! That's the excitement of Andy's commentluv contest. Every comment on every participating blog is an entry. I've lucked into winning twice now. The first win was, ironically enough, onI won again!

I'm late for leaving on a trip, so this will be quick. The Dark Knight Rises is a completely worthy capstone to the Nolan/Bale Batman trilogy. It turns the trilogy intoReview: The Dark Knight Rises (no spoilers)

A few things that are now probably old news for some of you have come across my reader. Sorry I didn't get to pass them on earlier. I done beenCatch up on Sci-fi news

How could anyone be stupid enough to let his skin turn blue? Slice of Sci-Fi has a two lists of movie trailers. Here are my favorites from their lists. The Chronicles ofBlue Skin, and movie trailers

[UPDATE: as you can see below, I'm having some problems with CoolPlayer - like it doesn't work anymore. I've switched to the Anarchy player.] As you can see from the previousCoolPlayer - WordPress media plugin

Apple - Trailers - The Dark Knight I can't believe no one told me this trailer was out. Okay, visually it's an extremely boring trailer. Pretty much, it's the bat-symbol with aTrailer: The Dark Knight

First, two rumors I hope are false... This first one I'm pretty positive is false, but here it is: apparently some bookies in the UK are looking for something to betDoctor Who rumors

Trailer for 11 Minutes Ago The first thing that impressed me about this movie was that it was shot, in it's entirety, in a single day. For a feature length film11 Minutes Ago

When did I become a girl?

Living in a house with 3 females has apparently done me in. I think I need to turn in my man card.

Either that, or I have to stop watching movies with any amount of sweetness in them. (Gah… even the fact that I used the word ‘sweetness’ is just more evidence. It’s really hopeless.)

I was sitting here listening to my Spotify soundtracks playlist radio while working, and the song “The Ellie Badge” from Pixar’s UP was playing when my daughter walked in and asked what it was. I told her, and she asked about the movie. I told her there were some funny parts and some serious parts, and she asked me what the serious parts were. I started telling her that the old man’s wife had died and he wanted to take their house to a place they loved. Then she asked about other serious parts and I said the boy’s father had died (can’t remember if that’s actually true) and he wanted someone to be like a father for him. But I had to keep stopping in the middle of my explanation because I was getting all teary and emotional just thinking about it.

What the heck?!

I’ve caught myself in similar situations all too often recently, and frankly it’s a bit embarrassing and annoying. It happens most often with the Pixar films, honestly. They’re pretty good at their jobs, as you may know. Especially Monsters Inc. – the final scene of that movie absolutely wrecks me. But it’s happened with other movies, too. Heck, since I’m blowing my cover anyway, it happened when we watched the stupid “American Girl” movie Felicity (which isn’t actually stupid, just made-for-tv quality).

And it’s not just films. Truth be told, the same thing happened when I listened to some music the other day, too. It’s sickening.

I remember laughing at my mother when she did stuff like that. Now I’m my mother? That’s just wrong.

I need help. I think I need some “man up” time. Spending a week shooting things, eating meat, watching things blow up for no reason other than to watch them blow up… stuff like that.

What suggestions do you have for manning-up? Or is it really hopeless and I should just accept my fate?
