I’ll start this off by admitting that I don’t have Netflix. I have used it at other people’s houses from time to time, and enjoyed it, but haven’t pulled the trigger to get my own account.
Why? Because it doesn’t have what I want in its streaming library 90% of the time. I can find something to watch, sure, but usually not what . . . → Read More: Netflix becomes stupider, Warehouse 13 returns
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.

The Dark Knight
Christopher Nolan, director of The Dark Knight, has stated that he’s in no hurry to make the second sequel to Batman Begins. He has reason to be cautious. Historically speaking, the third installment in a franchise has been, shall we say, lacking. Superman III, Spiderman 3, Terminator 3, Batman Forever, Rocky III, Police Academy 3… need I go on?

GateWorld – SCI FI confirms Atlantis cancellation, TV movie
Stargate: Atlantis has been cancelled. The show will run through its 100th episode in January 2009 and end on a cliffhanger, which will be resolved by a 2-hour movie.
