Review: Green Lantern / Super 8 Double Feature!

My parents came out for the weekend, which means (among other things) free babysitting. That, in turn, means movies! My wife and I saw two movies in a row tonight: Green Lantern and Super 8. Expectations were split for these two. I’ve been looking forward to Super 8 since the first trailer (which, btw, showed… Read More »

Revisitation and new worlds

I’m going to revisit a couple of topics discussed here recently and then we’ll hit some new topics. Well, after my last post I finished watching The Event. I stick with what I said about it, except for this: they did finally manage to make the title relevant, and they alluded to more about the… Read More »

2011 Movies to Drool Over

I’m a bit behind in putting up my movie list for this year. Last year’s list was full of promise, but I only got to see 4 of the 21 listed films in the theater. I’ve since brought the total up to 11 with the help of DVDs. I hope to catch the 12th (Voyage… Read More »

TIDBABSH 2: Part 2: Return of The Australian

If you thought he was gone, you weren’t paying attention. He’s back! He’s opinionated! He’s Australian! He’s spent more time thinking about pop culture than is probably healthy! And that last bit actually pays off in this, the second half of our conversation, as Lee Sargent and I concentrate on pop culture and movie/TV news… Read More »

Seeing Green… Lanterns

How many major “cons” are there in a year (that’s “conference” for the un-geeked)? New footage is spilling out like water from WonderCon, held recently, and Green Lantern is pouring out 4 minutes of mostly new scenes. Thankfully, it almost all looks better than the first official trailer, which I basically panned. It’s still a… Read More »

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 »

Return to MidMo and other short subjects

My second guest shot on the Midnight Movie Club was posted this week, reviewing the film “Return To Me” (with a stellar cast led by David Duchovny and Minnie Driver – in the movie, not the podcast). If the stats are accurate, many of you missed this film when it came out in 2000 (though… 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 »

Green Lantern: First Flight (and other Green Lantern news) – Tuesday TubeWatch

(Holy cow, was today Tuesday?! What happened to last week?) The new animated Green Lantern movie, First Flight was released last week. Here are the first four minutes of the film… Movie Trailers – Movies Blog I’m looking forward to seeing the whole thing. Not as much as I’m looking forward to the live action… Read More »
