Lois Lane Spin-Off? (Article) - 9/10/2006 7:58:33 PM

(FYI darthkaos - As long as Warner Bros holds control over the Harry Potter franchise and Nolan's Batman films, it will never be in the red...its their ace in the hole when their other movies tank at the box office.)

Lois Lane Spin-Off? (Article) - 9/10/2006 7:56:01 PM

One word for this concept "pathetic." As for your comments gazelle024, you're obviously another one of those feminest morons that would love to see Superman and Lois Lane "Romeo and Juliet" edition or a live action My Little Pony or Rainbow Brite epic... Please don't try to pass off this tripe as acceptable. Lois Lane is NOTHING without Superman and if Superman Returns proved anything, she is nothing on screen without him. No one gives a crap anymore if she wants him or not and Singer put the nail in the coffin by giving her not only a fiance but a kid on top of it all. Even if she wanted Superman back, she would then be a selfish whore jumping from one man to the next. This character died when Margot Kidder and Teri Hatcher left the screen in their respective Superman runs. Hot as Erica Durance is, she's just another cheap Chloe clone. Warner Bros needs to bury this concept before it buries their "superhero" film image and think about originality again. Smallville works because its characters, though recognizable by name are reintroduced in a way that has both a sense of realism and human nature to them...oh yeah and aside from filler episodes, actually uses clever plotlines to get its point across in ways people would not expect, that's called talent people. We don't need another DC character turned Erin Brockavitch stinking up the big screen, raising movie ticket prices to finance yet ANOTHER bomb in a 16:9 train wreck. I think Jay Sherman said it best. "If the movie stinks, just don't go." Stop going to these spinoff movies, stop going to the shoddy remakes and formulated sequels, stop supporting the safety of built in audiences and let Hollywood know you're sick and tired of spinoff/remake/sequel circles! I for one will NEVER see this movie after enduring the horror that was Elektra and Catwoman. Nuff said! =V= (FYI darthkaos - As long as Warner Bros holds control over the Harry Potter franchise and Nolan's Bat

Penguin not in the cards for Hoffman (Article) - 9/6/2006 4:32:06 AM

Chris Nolan already shot down this rumor and the Sean Penn rumor in his recent interview posted on superherohype.com. Sean was never offered the role of The Joker and Nolan said there was no truth to Penguin being in the next film. Since that is out in the open, there can be no truth to this Hoffman rumor. I'm surprised you even mentioned this on here, it's old news and already exposed as internet speculation and nothing more. =V=

SPIDER-MAN 3 cast called back for reshoots (Article) - 8/29/2006 3:03:32 PM

Look Karl, When you steal/research your content from another website it is a good idea to make sure your sources are legit. This article already appeared on superherohype.com and they contacted Sony about the "test audiences disappointed with lack of action." rumor and that is exactly what it is fabricated by an Irish publication. The original article can be found here http://www.superherohype.com/news/spider-mannews.php?id=4686 There have been no test screenings of Spider-man 3 nor has their been a complaint it has a lack of action. I praise Sam for understanding that as good as the movie is, he could still take extra steps to make it better. Don't mislead your viewers, it tarnishes Cinescape's reputation as a reliable source of entertainment news. =V=

David Eick talks BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (Article) - 7/15/2006 6:28:20 PM

Glen A. Larson was a driving creative force in the 80s and as much as people enjoyed the original Battlestar Galactica, they tend to forget he also worked on/created McCloud, The Fall Guy, Magnum P.I. and the still wildly popular retro hit Knight Rider. The man didn't need to depend on Star Wars for his ideas, he's more then proven his range. He approached his shows with an equal balance of linear storytelling that mixed humor, action, and drama in a even balance of entertainment that captured your attention and did not let go until the episode was finished. The new BSG has the same goal but a wildly different approach, it relies on real world issues in a space setting and political/military based drama, perhaps TOO MUCH drama. People Glen's shows were a means for escape from the real world. Yes some of his series delt with real world issues but there was always that element of danger and adventure that made it interesting. The real world is very boring and very mundane, this is why a "true" reality television that is entirely unscripted doesn't work. We want danger, we want drama, we want explosions and wild impossible action! The fact of the matter is this, "To each their own." I personally can't stand the oversaturated drama, redundant space battles, and clone this clone that crap of the new BSG, you miss one episode and you're lost... But I will not condemn others who do enjoy it, if it's not your cup of tea don't watch it but on the same hand if someone else likes something you don't you have to have the courage to agree to disagree and move the hell on. =V=

David Eick talks BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (Article) - 7/15/2006 9:46:58 AM

spiderhole, I have three words for you, "Do your research". The next time you want to attack a genius like Glen Larson for something he only EXECUTIVE PRODUCED, but in fact DID NOT write, direct, or create you may want to think before commenting on matters you don't truly understand kid. http://imdb.com/title/tt0127398/fullcredits#writers Clever wit only works when you understand the punchline and clearly you didn't do your homework. Glen had every right to make his comments on BSG because he knows what his vision should be, there is nothing "fun" about his creation anymore there is only "drama". Class dismissed. =V=

WOW, I am in shock. (Article) - 5/28/2006 9:05:10 PM

Despite people's many gripes with Routh and the costume, mark my words... Superman Returns is going to bury X-Men 3 at the box office, its going to own this summer. =V=

OVER THE HEDGE (Article) - 5/20/2006 11:34:31 PM

Then if the movie is "unexpectedly truly enjoyable", give it the outstanding A it deserves! This movie is entirely flawless and one of the best animated films since Pixar. Way to go Dreamworks Animation you knocked it right out of the park! Thanks for the creative laughs and the change from the cookie cutter formulas other "popular" animation companies keep spewing out with empty sequels, forgetable characters and pointless remakes. =V=

TRANSFORMERS Script Review (Article) - 5/18/2006 5:09:56 AM

BTW I meant ratings ABOVE a "B". I've rarely seen any below one even on the worst movies in the history of this site. =V=

SUPERMAN RETURNS Final Poster (Article) - 5/18/2006 4:34:05 AM

Your welcome Karl, I take great pride in spreading the positive word for this movie that will no doubt own this summer. From what has been leaked out that is LEGIT and not speculation, the connections between Superman I/II and this movie will satisfy any audience who wishes to believe again that another man can fly in Superman's shoes. Mark my words, it will OWN THIS SUMMER!
