Fringe “The Arrival” Is a Little Slow

Wednesday, October 1 by

Recap: Season 1, episode 4. We start out in a diner where a creepy-looking guy orders the spiciest sandwich he can think of and watches construction workers through the window. Suddenly, there's a huge explosion, and as the workers are running, our bad breath-having friend walks into the epicenter, calls someone on the phone and says, "It has arrived."

Robin Getting His Own Pre-Batman TV Show

Wednesday, October 1 by

If I had to pick a character from the DC universe to get his or her own TV show, Robin would probably have been somehwere near the bottom of the list near Hawkman, but The Graysons, which tells the story of the Boy Wonder before he falls in with Batman has apparently gotten the green light by the CW. Here's hoping it's not another Birds of Prey. Yikes.

Saudi Cleric Issues Fatwa On TV Execs

Tuesday, September 30 by

As weird and conservative as politics get in the US of A, we usually don’t have the Pat Robertsons and Jerry Falwells (R.I.P.) calling for the death of TV executives and show presenters over ‘immoral’ content. Saudi Arabia is a tad different.

This Week’s DVDs That Don’t Suck: 9/30/08

Tuesday, September 30 by

There is so much good TV kicking around at the moment that it's hard to find time to watch it and the new DVDs without becoming a total hermit, but that shouldn't stop us from trying to figure it out. This week, Marvel's surprise hit of the summer is in the lead by a longshot. Iron Man: Two Disc Special Collector's Edition

The Spirit Trailer 2

Tuesday, September 30 by

The first couple spots for The Spirit were not all that awesome. There were tons of billboards around LA that were part of a big marketing campaign that never really impressed me. But now that this second trailer has been released, the movie looks pretty dope. I’ll definitely be seeing it.

Transformers 2 Will Be Partially IMAX®SIZED

Tuesday, September 30 by

I never saw The Dark Knight in IMAX®. I haven’t walked into an IMAX® theatre in about three years. The last thing I saw was about fighter pilots and I almost hurled. I have nothing against it, I just don’t really see the point. Call me a Luddite, but seems like the nice big screens that you find at most movie theatres these days are enough.  Dreamworks and Michael Bay would disagree.

13 Spin-Off Worthy Simpsons Characters

Tuesday, September 30 by

With 20 seasons and a successful movie under their belts, the next logical expansion of the Simpsons empire would be a spin-off. If it's going to happen, here's a list of characters that would be perfect in the spotlight, plus a few that would totally suck. 13. Kent Brockman

Marvel’s Upcoming Movies Dated

Marvel's colorful characters are the hottest commodity in Hollywood right now, and according to a deal extension between Paramount and the comic book giant, we're going to have plenty of superhero movies to keep us busy for the next couple of summers. Here's a quick breakdown:

Heroes “One of Us, One of Them”

Tuesday, September 30 by

Recap: Season 3, episode 3. With last week's premiere extravaganza in the bag, there are lots of new mysteries to unravel and lots of new super powers to be jealous of.

Bonus Features: Link Dump Bailout

Monday, September 29 by

There's an awful lot of people worrying about the economy right now, and I've found that the best way to deal with that is by burying your head in a big ass pile of movies and TV. Here are some links to help you kill the pain. And above is a very annoying guy who seems to have a lot of displaced anger he wants to take out on Matt Damon.

Blade Runner 2 Is A Horrible Idea

Monday, September 29 by

Sequels that are done 26 years after the fact are not a good idea. If it’s been that long, just go for the remake.  Blade Runner is one of the best Sci-Fi movies of all time, and it would take an amazing feat of moviemaking to even get close to the splendor of the original. But that doesn’t seem to be stopping the two ambitious co-writers of Eagle Eye from aiming to ruin your precious cinematic memories.

Pink Panther 2 Poster Begs For a Mallet

Monday, September 29 by

First the economy commits suicide and now my sense of humor is attacked by this Pink Panther 2 poster. Sure, it's just Steve Martin wearing a hat, poking his head out of a hole. But I just keep imaginging that down there in that hole are the 12 kids from Cheaper By the Dozen waiting to spring out and steal my 10 dollar movie admission.

Curious Case Of Benjamin Button Trailer

Monday, September 29 by

The Curious Case Of Benjamin button is adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards.

Monday Mashup: Requiem For A Toy

Monday, September 29 by

Someday after the economy totally crashes, we will not have real actors because they will be too expensive. Everything will be animated. This mashup is particularly amazing because of the vocal match up. It’s also particularly funny because it makes a bunch of toys look and sound like heroin addicts.  Nice work.

True Blood “Escape from Dragon House”

Monday, September 29 by

Recap: Season 1, episode 4. Last week's episode was all that eventful, but this week's piece of the story is a little more exciting. We get to see our first vampire bar and Jason gets a boner that he can't get rid of. We've all been there, brother.
