Fox Approves GAMBIT Spin-Off (Article) - 11/1/2014 7:21:08 PM

 Disagree with the last comment, Dazzler. He was horrible in the Joe films, also. He was decent in 21 Jump Street because he was playing a dumb jock type. That works for him. And from what my women-friends have said, he could keep doing Magic Mike movies until the end of time. But as Duke in GI Joe? No way in hell. And as Gambit....

 

I don't even know if I'll watch this on DVD. This might be a Marvel "Catwoman" film.

 

 

Mania Review: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (Article) - 8/23/2014 8:04:26 AM

 It's an R-rated comic book movie, which is going to make it tough sell from the start (ask Ryan Reynolds about that issue). 

 

I've not seen this yet, but this review gives me hope. A lot of times the problem with sequels is that there's something really, organically great about the original, and then writers try to force that same feeling into a second pass, trying to shove lightning back in that bottle. The two immediate examples that come to mind are Kick-Ass and Red and their respective sequels.

 

Hopefully this review is right and they learned from any problems of the original. I really liked the original - the cheesy dialogue is absolute perfect in an exaggeratedly-noir piece like this - so if they made this one better, I'm game.

FIRST Superman IMAGE from Batman v Superman (Article) - 7/3/2014 8:56:23 PM

 Can't post a direct link, but if you do an image search, you'll see he does NOT look the same as MoS. In this image, at least, he's a fair bit bigger. More George Reeves than Christopher Reeve, and I think that's a very good thing.

Mania Review: Transformers: Age of Extinction (Article) - 6/29/2014 4:12:19 PM

 I've grown bored with this franchise because they just don't really to have any coherent story. I'm not knocking it - the cartoon wasn't exactly high art either. I was thinking about taking my kid to see this one, but between the nearly 3-hour run time and the bad word of mouth, I think this is going to be a first-run BRD in my house.

New Lucy Release Date and Poster (Article) - 5/26/2014 6:45:29 PM

 Scarlett Johansson teamed with Luc Besson should carry the weekend, but Dwayne Johnson is a pretty big draw, too. It'll be LUCY for the win, but it'll be close.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Beginning of the End Review (Article) - 5/14/2014 9:01:47 PM

 I'm actually suprised at how few people are commenting on the fact that Nick Fury pretty much stated that Phil Coulson IS an Avenger. I thought that was a pretty poignant moment.

Batmobile Revealed (Sort of) (Article) - 5/13/2014 10:12:36 AM

 Eldogg, don't count on the "all grey and black". I mean, it MIGHT be, but that's a b&w photos, so colour wouldn't really show.

WOLVERINE WEAPON X: TOMORROW DIES TODAY Trailer (Article) - 5/9/2014 2:36:54 PM

 I'd be first in line for this if they made it an actual animate movie instead of just an animated comic. I guess they sell, since they keep making them, but I really wish they'd just step up their animate feature program (one of the places Marvel is lagging behind DC).

Star Wars Expanded Universe: Past, Present, and Future (Article) - 4/27/2014 8:23:10 AM

  I've always been an EU fan and supporter. Some of it is lacking, some is downright superb, but I've read (nearly) all of it.

That said, I'm not overly bothered by this news. Sure, it'd be nice to say we're going to see Jade and Thrawn, the expanded Rogue Squadron roster, the 181st flying for the Empire, whatever. But I'm just excited we're getting new films, and if new EU-official stories come along with it, that's even better!

As for the "legends" part of the EU, I still have it. As far as I know, Disney/LFL isn't sending out black-suited, mouse-eared goons to my house to take it away from me. If I want to go back and visit Bakura, or read about the Omega Squad of Republic Commandos, or check in on Wedge Antilles and his misfit Wraith Squadron, they'll always be there for me. Whether it's "real" or not (besides being a supremely silly argument about a fantasy series like this) doesn't matter. LFL can label their official canon, but as a fan, I can pick and choose what I like and what I don't.

And I agree with the comic book comparison. This is fairly similar to DC's "New 52" concept, or more correctly, their "Crisis on Infinite Earths" run, because some of what's there (movies, TV shows) will be sticking around rather than a true clean slate.

Hey, it's still Star Wars, and that's what matters, isn't it?

Hugh Jackman for PAN (Article) - 4/25/2014 8:18:03 AM

 There's an internet meme photo that goes around with an explanation of Peter Pan that someone should commit to film:

Peter Pan is actually an angel that takes kids' spirits away when they die to their final rest. "Neverland" is where the spirits reside (heaven?), which explains why no one there ever ages.
