2012 has an impressive line-up of films. Time travel, mutation, gods, monsters, hobbits, technology, and sheer awesomeness all combine to create an almost inescapable desire to just set up an automatic withdrawal from my checking account to my local movie theater.
As usual, but even more so this year, money is tight. Hard choices have to be made. I don’t know if I’m strong enough to make them, but I have to try. Last . . . → Read More: 7 movies my mother has to worry about (and a bunch more)
… and then nothing but disappointment. That pretty much describes this podcast. Really there is some interesting stuff discussed somewhere in there, but to get to it, you have to listen to me talking. Sorry about that, but it is the way of things.
On the upside, you do get to hear my wife talking about this stuff as well, so you got that going for you. Which is nice.
Of course throughout the entire . . . → Read More: Grand opening…
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)
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
Well, here we are with more sci-fi news. This time it’ll be a mix of things old and new. Strap on your propeller hat and hang on, ’cause here we go…
Spider-Man 4 is apparently going to shoot in 2010 for a 2011 release. This is information gleaned from an interview with J.K. Simmons, who plays J. Jonah Jameson in the films. Sam Raimi is on-board as director and Tobey McGuire is set to reprise . . . → Read More: Sci-fi rumors and news catch up

Looks like I am officially blogging. I am too cool for words. (Ironic, isnâ€™t it.)
Thusly did this, my first blogging experience, begin. Pretty sad, really, but there you have it. Now here we are, three years and over 400 posts later, and I figure it’s about time I looked back to see if I’ve ever . . . → Read More: Three years of yammering on…
I’ve fallen really behind on posting lately. Given the upcoming holiday there probably won’t be much for the next few days either. But I wanted to quickly throw a few things out there in Sci-Fi and Entertainment news.
Hobbit films (report stolen from Slice of Sci-Fi):
Director Guillermo del Toro told reporters during a Hellboy press junket that his first â€œThe Hobbitâ€ movie will stick strictly to J.R.R. Tolkienâ€™s original â€œThe Hobbitâ€ material, however, the . . . → Read More: Quick Notes on Entertainment News
This weekend I saw Spider-Man 3. Before I got to the theater, I’d been hearing all week from critics and friends that it was “okay” or it “wasn’t as good as the other two.” Some people went so far as to totally bash it. I tried not to listen. I wanted to go in with only my own fears and expectations about whether director Sam Raimi and his team could pull off the tri-fecta.

Apple – Trailers – Spider-Man 3
Oh, man. I can’t wait for this. I’m impressed by how many effects shots they already have done, and it’s still a year before it comes out.
Word is that this trailer will be playing with Superman Returns, so I should be seeing it on the big screen within the week!
