Gosling Circles Lone Ranger (Article) - 4/16/2011 6:06:41 PM

If this movie is about Tonto then it should just be called Tonto.  As other's have pointed out calling it The Lone Ranger wouldn't draw that many more movie goers. In fact, for many, just call it "A Western starring Johnny Depp." 

Now, if they call it The Lone Ranger,  I'd prefer the guy playing the Lone Ranger to be top-billed.  Gosling is not a big enough name to out-star Depp.

Who's playing Cavendish? If it's George Clooney, Gosling's dropped to third.  

Captain America Sequel Timeless (Article) - 4/15/2011 8:56:07 AM

I like their approach and hope Marvel, or whomever, let's them take their time.  Seeing which aspect of the first viewers liked best is better than just assuming they liked it all and give the same movie.  Not having seen the first one obviously I don't know for sure yet but a good mix of past and present ala Highlander appeals to me right now.

Clarke Duncan Voices Kilowog in GL (Article) - 4/14/2011 6:48:11 AM

One word: Sweet.

Top 5 Season Finales (Article) - 4/14/2011 6:47:10 AM

Like others, I was hoping you included Best of Both Worlds. I remember watching Riker say "Fire." and the screen go blank before I was like "NOOOOO!!!" 

I didn't know it at the time but Who Shot JR? is the frandaddy of them all.  (I'm pretty sure the new show won't come close to recapturing it...)

Zod Cast in Snyder's SUPERMAN (Article) - 4/11/2011 9:17:49 AM

To get on Ponyboy76's comment,  Joker has appeared in Batman movies more often than Zod has appeared in Superman movies. (Much more if you count the animated stuff) and no one ever complains as vehemently.  Lex Luthor is another story but you know he'll appear at some point in the series...

For an origin story, the best fits are Zod or Brainiac and the latter, done right,  is probably too complicated for a first movie.  Just do it and move on...

The Top 15 What If? Stories That Actually Occurred in the Mainstream Marvel Universe (Article) - 4/7/2011 8:06:05 AM

I can't remember the exact title but the one where Sue Richards leaves Reed for Namor was so good. I thought it was real for a couple minutes...

The 10 Worst Superhero Costumes in TV and Film (Article) - 4/6/2011 6:29:05 AM

I can live with Black Canary's costume for the most part but I can't stand the mask.

I'm surprised you didn't mention the lack of costume in the X-Men movies. I don't care how silly they think the real costumes would have looked. Plain black leather is just as lazy as several of the other costumes mentioned...

New Thundercats Trailer Online (Article) - 4/4/2011 9:58:08 AM

Having Thundarra being a kingdom of Third Earth as opposed to another planet is an interesting twist .  I still wonder if they'll have Bengali, Pumyra and Lynxo already there in the beginning like the 2002 Masters of the Unverse did with most of it's characters... 

Rush Voicing Tomar-Re in LANTERN (Article) - 4/1/2011 8:23:19 AM

The fact that this voice and Kilowog are now being cast clearly implies they didn't go mo-cap which surprises me. (Or they did and the voice didn't work like Seth Green's voice being dubbed over in Mars Needs Moms...) 

As for the casting, yeah, I can hear that.  I think the rumor of Michael Clark Duncan taking Kilowog is more interesting but what can you do?

Nimoy Primed for TRANSFORMERS 3 (Article) - 4/1/2011 8:16:32 AM

While I liked the first one well enough, the the second just didn't do it for me. I swear it was written by a 12 year old with no parental role models to speak of.   The plot of this third one looks promising but to say I have low expectations is an understatement. Nimoy can nail this role; no question. 

Oh and, yes,  he came out of retirement yet again to do Fringe THEN this came along (officially anyway)...
