Green Lantern – first trailer

I’ve been excited and worried about this one for a long time. Green Lantern is an exceptionally hard character to pull off in live-action. More than most other super-heroes, the effects are front and center, and extremely important to get right, but extremely susceptible to looking cartoony. They have to look realistic, and yet they… Read More »

Throwing spaghetti on the wall

This post is going to be like throwing spaghetti on the wall: I’m just gonna toss a lot of stuff up here and see what sticks. It worked for Oscar Madison (okay, that was linguini – work with me). Movie prices According to Slice-of-Sci-Fi… The weekend closed out the books for the summer season and while ticket… Read More »

Spider-man dances (and so does The Flash)

No one has written a super-hero theme song yet that beats the one from the 60s Spider-man cartoon. Don’t get me wrong, there have been some great themes written, but Spider-man’s is the swinging-est. Over the years, a few versions have been recorded, but this is probably my favorite update. And the dancing is actually… Read More »

G-Force ROCKS!

NO! I am not talking about the insipid, rodent-filled name-stealer. Similar to Lee’s story in the blog entry that I’m blatantly ripping off, even to the point of taking his graphics, when I heard about a live action G-Force movie I could feel the 10-year old geek in me pushing and punching the 38-year old… Read More »

Movies 2010 – must see or must miss?

It looks like we’re headed into another year of big movies. I’m getting all fan-boy giddy just thinking about what’s coming. On the heels of Avatar, though, it seems like every big movie is being filmed in 3-D. While I’m okay with that, it means two things: feeling a little weird wearing those glasses, and… Read More »

Iron Man 2 trailer released

First of all, I have to say how shocked I am that I’m mentioning this before Lee. Somebody must have him locked in a very nasty dungeon. Good luck with the escape, Lee! On to the topic at hand… The Iron Man 2 trailer has been released, and it looks excellent. Tony Stark, Pepper Pots,… Read More »

Premieres/Finales Fall 2009

Well, this week was the one to launch three shows I’ll be following this year (Heroes, FlashForward, and Smallville) and close out the opening season for a summer series I watched (Warehouse 13). How’d they do? Read on. Let’s start with the end. The finale to Warehouse 13 on Tuesday was really good. [SKIP TO… Read More »

Radioactive Spider Blood – Tuesday TubeWatch

Other heroes may be dark, brooding and intelligent, or invincible super-nice guys, but no one is as fun to watch as Spider-Man. More than most other super-heroes, he seems like a regular (if really intelligent) guy who is trying to juggle two lives without losing his sense of humor. I can relate to him better… Read More »

Review: Green Lantern: First Flight

With characters that have as huge of an existing storyline as Green Lantern, it’d be easy for a movie like Green Lantern: First Flight to get lost in trying to add in all the cool stuff and cameos that could be covered. That isn’t the case here. This is a lean movie. At 70 minutes,… Read More »
