BATMAN is Back! (Article) - 11/4/2010 5:05:49 AM

Of course - this will just eventually lead to a Batman 'Armor Wars' when Batman has to take on all of the other Batmen... And the wheel continues to turn.

"Strangely enough, Rambo III failed to acknowledge the events of the cartoon when it came out in 1988"

That right there... COMEDY GENIUS...

Well done Kurt.

I would recommend The Returner as well... Not artsy - but quite fun... my 2¢.

LOST End Series Finale Review (Article) - 5/26/2010 4:17:43 AM

On the Michael issue...

If the SLU was the purgatory for the 'joined souls' - built so they can get together in the afterlife - it makes sense that Michael wasn't there - he wasn't as connected as the others. He (if memory serves) wasn't as connected to the group. He broke off from the rest to build the raft, and was always 'Walt first, get off the island'... So - maybe he was connected to everyone through the 'Lost' network - but wasn't really bonded to them...

So - he isn't there because it isn't his group - not because he is evil.

That and he probably had other obligations and couldn't make the filming schedule ;)

LOST End Series Finale Review (Article) - 5/24/2010 1:50:27 PM

Also - let me say thanks again to Joe - great reviews and wonderful insight.

Other thoughts - Looking at the SLU Hurley - you can see that he was a different guy relative to how we was on Island... Like he had years of experience under his belt with things....

It has been said before - but I really think it would be plausable that Hurley and Ben ended up running the Island as 'Fantasy Island' for their run...

I think Ben is waiting for his daughter - who is his redemption. SLU is where people worked out all of their issues... Kate being a runaway... Ben Blackmailing the principle... Hurley finding love... Sawyer being the goodguy... I ramble.

An interesting parallel between Lost and Ashes to Ashes - but I'll leave it at that lest I get yelled at for Spoliers.

And my BSG comment - I think I enjoyed the ending of Lost better than BSG - but I think I enjoyed the glory days of BSG more than Lost (I still say Battlestar drop ship is one of the best moments in television history).

Still and all - any theories on how the Sunk Island at the begining of this season plays into things? or was it just a diversion?

So - Safe Landing Universe is the purgatory. And as Christian Shepard said - time is meaningless in the SLU. So - anyone who died in the Real universe - 'met up' after they died - regardless of when it was that they died.

Part of this also means that everything outside of the SLU actually happened... Jack died AFTER saving the island... (Note the tennis shoe is old and mouldy - not crisp and white from ep 1). Hurley and Ben went on to 'run the island' for seemingly many years after (You were a great number two... You were a great number 1). Sawyer, Kate, Alpert... all made it off the island and lived their lives. When they died in their own time - they awoke in the SLU... waiting to 'remember' so they could move on... The part about Sayiid making a choice - you have to choose 'heaven' or 'hell' - you can't have it chosen for you.

So - No real answers as to what the Island actually was - and how it did the amazing things... but a nice job tying up everyone's lives on the show and leading to some form of closure.

Also - IMHO - Ben is neither good nor evil... he is just working things out as a man still - hence the staying in 'purgatory' a while longer... I guess to support his daughter and find happiness with Rousseau...

Great series - and a dern good finale... I just didn't understand the part where Apollo turned and Starbuck had disappeared...

 

 

Evans offered CAPTAIN AMERICA role (Article) - 3/22/2010 12:38:08 PM

Give Charlie Hunnam (Jacks in Sons of Anarchy) a haircut. He would make a good Cap IMO
