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 have no connection to reality. The ring effects in particular should have substance, and yet not. Go too far one . . . → Read More: Green Lantern – first trailer

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 sales were up to $4.35 billion, the highest total ever for a summer season, overall attendance was down. . . . → Read More: Throwing spaghetti on the wall

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 pretty cool, too. I think these guys do a great job.

Then there’s this… yeah, the dancing sucks, but . . . → Read More: Spider-man dances (and so does The Flash)

G-Force ROCKS!

NO! I am not talking about the insipid, rodent-filled name-stealer.

Why?! Why did they do it?!

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 (at the time) actual geek that is me to race to . . . → Read More: G-Force ROCKS!

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 higher ticket prices. Just going to a 2-D movie is more than I want to pay for movies these days. . . . → Read More: Movies 2010 – must see or must miss?

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…

Iron Man and War Machine

Super status updates

This is just too perfect. I actually laughed out loud at a couple.

My favorites are by far Spider-Man’s and Green Lantern’s.

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 THE NEXT PARAGRAPH TO AVOID SPOILERS.] They still managed to keep the light tone of the show intact while also . . . → Read More: Premieres/Finales Fall 2009

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 than any other super-hero I can think of at the moment.

That relatability has a lot to do with the . . . → Read More: Radioactive Spider Blood – Tuesday TubeWatch

Review: Green Lantern: First Flight

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, you could actually argue that it’s too lean. But I still liked it.
