Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Asset Review (Article) - 10/10/2013 12:06:58 PM

Good news everyone!  Thanks for the update monkeyfoot!  I guess when the Mouse speaks, ratings go out the window.  I think Disney sees AoS (I like that abbreviation) as an long term investment.  So many opportunities for tie-ins it boggles the mind.

Jim Hensons Creature Shop Challenge (Article) - 10/9/2013 6:16:49 AM

 I'll give this a chance.  If it's as good as SyFy's FaceOff, it should be good.

Olsen is the Scarlet Witch? (Article) - 10/7/2013 5:45:14 AM

 Dazzler - It's their younger sister, and IMO prettier, sister.

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special Update (Article) - 10/4/2013 6:09:11 AM

 Dazzler - BBCAmerica is available in HD, but not on AT&T.  I'm assuming Comcast doesn't have it either.  I know Time Warner does and almost considered switching to them just to watch Doctor Who in HD.

 

 

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 0-8-4 Review (Article) - 10/3/2013 6:21:13 AM

 OK.  You want minor villain of the week with the possiblity of a return later in the season?  Maybe Reyes will become Viper and then Madame Hydra.  I could see it happening.  If it happens, we just saw the first act of her origin story.  But then again, Fox just used Viper in The Wolverine, so they may not call her Viper and may go straight to MH.

TV Wasteland: This Is The End... (Article) - 9/30/2013 5:44:27 AM

 Last one?!?  One of the few things that brighten my Monday mornings has been reading this column and reading your snarky comments about show and movies I love ... and then laughing because you're usually right.  I for one will definitely miss this column.  Hopefully there is an outpouring of support and TPTB will bring it back.  Now I'm going to read the column and get one last Monday morning laugh.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Episode 2 Clip (Article) - 9/28/2013 7:22:55 AM

 Also, it's funny to think back 20-25 years.  Who back then would've thought DC would be the grittier, more serious comic company (and movie/tv company) and Marvel would have the glossy, family friendier stock.

 I agre WarCry.  I think that's where the some of animosity for Iron Man 3 came from.  It wasn't a kids comic book brought to life on the big screen.  It was a little more cerebral than some of the other MU movies.  People cried that it was a "Tony Stark" movie and not an "Iron Man" movie.  Ya' know what?  They've all been Tony Stark movies.  They've been movies about how Tony Stark deals with the world around him.  Every super hero movie/tv series is just that - how the heroes deal with the world around them.  Just in these cases, they put on masks and punch out bad guys. I'm interested to see how the characters on SHIELD develop and deal with this wonderful world they've been written in to.

The Dark Tower Update (Article) - 9/19/2013 6:41:54 AM

 I really don't think King cares a lick about the movie adaptations of his works.  Remember, he signed off on (and appeared in) Skinwalkers, Thinner, Maximum Overdrive, and the Langoliers.  All, in my opinion, pure crapfests.  I think he may have given up after his battles with Kubrik on The Shining.

As for The Dark Tower, I say take as much time as needed to get it right.  How would you feel about them doing The Gunslinger as a movie and then continuing the series on HBO or Showtime?  I would watch it.

10 Best Live-Action Shows Based on Comic Books (Article) - 9/19/2013 6:17:10 AM

 You're partially right karas1.

"Johnson changed the name of the Hulk's comic book alter ego, Dr. Bruce Banner, to Dr. David Banner for the TV series. This change was made, according to Johnson, because he did not want the series to be perceived as a comic book series, so he wanted to change what he felt was a staple of comic books, and Stan Lee's comics in particular, that major characters frequently had alliterative names.[9] According to Lou Ferrigno, it was also changed because CBS thought the name Bruce sounded "too gay-ish," a rationale that Ferrigno thought was "the most absurd, ridiculous thing I'd ever heard."[10] On the DVD commentary of the pilot, Johnson says that it was a way to honor his son David. "Bruce" ultimately became the TV Banner's middle name, as it had been in the comics. It is visible on Banner's tombstone at the end of the pilot movie, and that footage is shown at the beginning of every episode of the series." - Wikipedia

It was the old "lets make a series based on a comic book but not make it look like a comic book series.  It's the same mindset that went into the Dolph Lundgren Punisher movie.

I wish they'd called him something other than "The Blur" too.  I have the same problem with Oliver Queen being called "The Hood" on Arrow.  I'm also hoping they tone down the body count on Arrow this season too.  It doesn't matter if he's killing criminals, it's still murder.  Not exactly a role model I'd want my kids (if I had any) to look up to.
