10 Bloodiest Blood Sucking Vampires (Article) - 9/4/2009 1:51:54 AM

Kate Beckinsale and Wesley Snipes would tear this list up and ask for seconds. Also I think by the end of True Bloods run Eric might have a shot to get on here, time will tell.

Guy Ritchie Collects Bounty on LOBO (Article) - 9/3/2009 3:33:31 PM

lazarus: "The premise is good but do not team him up with a teenage girl, that is so gay, I mean Elton John screwing Boy George on holiday gay."

 

I couldn't have said it better myself. PG-13 with teenage girl sidekicks, it sounds like Lobo already has been pussified...

Ya Princess Leia is a no brainer, and Wild Things was pretty hot as well.

Marvel in good hands with Disney. (Blog Post) - 9/3/2009 4:38:17 AM

The people who had there own creative freedom taken away now sit on the board of directors at Disney.. Robert Iger has stated that individual business units will retain much of the decision-making authority. Disney knows nothing about comic books really so I don't see a conflict of interest there.

You do have a good point about Disney acquring the movie rights from other studios and consolidating there interests. But with Marvel primarily making pg-13 movies its the same level of violence you have in your standard Pirates of the Caribbean flick. That leaves animation and I think that might be the biggest concern as animation is Disneys bread & butter. But the prospect of getting Pixar involved is worth the risk. Also if any of the aforementioned properties crosses that line of politics or religion Disney will exercise it's rights to protect there brand. (They are a corporation after all)

 

5 Pros/Cons to the Marvel/Disney deal (Article) - 9/3/2009 4:19:31 AM

It can go either way and what it's going to come down to is one man, the CEO & President of Disney. For 20 years that man was Michael Eisner and during his reign we saw legal battles with both Pixar and Miramax. Disney refused to allow Miramax to release Dogma, Kids & Fahrenheit 9/11 and micromanaged ABC into 4th place in the ratings, which was the first of the original three networks to fall so low...

(Cue the scary music)

In 2004 Roy E. Disney son of Walt rallied the shareholders and one year latter forced Eisner out. Michael Eisner's long time assistant and now new CEO & President of Disney Robert Iger took over. Two little shows, Lost & Desperate Houswives (along with other shows) helped catapult ABC into the ratings hunt and eventually became number one. He made Pixar a 7.4 billion dollar deal in stocks and made John Lasseter chief creative officer of animation while Steve Jobs became Disney's top shareholder with 7 percent.

Iger reassigned Peter Murphy, the company's chief strategic officer, and pledged to disband the company's strategic planning division. Iger also vowed to restore much of the decision-making authority that the division had assumed to the company's individual business units.

(Cue the victory music)

I hope this gives people a little bit of background as to where Disney was and where they are now. It was pretty facinating reading up on the history of Disney. Marvel was never interested in doing movies outside of the pg-13 purview and will give there darker properties (Punisher) to other studios. Robert Iger hopefully won't make the same mistakes as his predecessor giving Marvel the autonomy to be as creative as possible. And they lived happily ever after...

Warehouse 13: Regrets Review (Article) - 9/3/2009 3:45:39 AM

Eddie McClintock needs to dial it down a bit. We get it your the funny-witty-charming one. Sublty my man subtly.

Alan Moore Reflects on Marvelman (Article) - 9/3/2009 3:27:00 AM

It's always interesting to listen to Alan Moore talk. He's clearly a genius and yet because of his varying experiences he always sounds like hes full of contempt and self loathing. A very interesting dichotomie.

Kimota!

 

NEW MOON Preview Coming (Article) - 9/3/2009 3:18:35 AM

I totally believe it, just look at what that demographic did for Titanic.

PRIME SUSPECT for NBC (Article) - 9/3/2009 2:42:48 AM

Has anyone seen the original, any good?

ICE AGE 3 Hits DVD Oct. 27 (Article) - 9/3/2009 2:32:00 AM

John Leguizamo was on Conan tonight. I guess he passed on Philadelphia to do Super Mario Bro.and then proceeded to break Bob Hoskins fingers on his first stunt. Ouch!
