Warner Bros: Finally Some Justice

Warner Bros President Jeff Robinov has just now realised that maybe, just maybe, actually knowing something about the IP that his company owns could help avoid killing off the potential gold-mines that are the DC Comics characters. It really isn’t hard to tell that Warner Bros has been pretty clueless when it comes to how […]

Hulk: More Cross Overing?

Something that I’ve harped on about for a while now is the fact that Marvel has taken control over the way that their intellectual property is adapted to film (particularly since the five and a quarter million dollar credit arrangement was secured between Marvel Studios and Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc.), and how this will […]

Movie: I Aren’t Legend

SPOILER: WARNING GALORE! For three quarters of I AM LEGEND I was delighted… Ok, not ‘delighted’ so much as compelled, scared stupid, and even bought to tears. However, the same event which turned me into a blubbering mess also marked the demise of all that I’d hoped would eventuate from this, the third adaptation of […]

Remake: The last man on Earth

Amongst myself and my movie nerd friends, the subject of I AM LEGEND, the soon to be released Will Smith sci-fi, zombie thriller, has risen a few times recently.

Series: Bionic Break Up

One of the things that I bang on about quite often here on EOL is the detrimental effect which results when creative control over a project (be it for film, television, or other wise) is taken away from the ‘rightful owner’ of the creative content. A good example can be found just by watching PainKiller […]

The plan is usually to start these posts some witty anecdote and then to somehow tie it in to the subject matter, but this time the ability to string something together completely escaped me. I tried, trust me I did – I had this whole train of thought going about how childhood memories (where they […]

Series: Drop the Pilot

The last couple of weeks have been a TV nerd’s wet dream. Television networks have finally woken up to the notion that they can create buzz by letting copies of the pilots of their new season shows find their way onto the net so that people just like me, make posts just like this. I […]

Movie: Re-Spawn

Spawn creator Todd McFarlane has apparently let it slip that he’s fronting up the development cash for a Spawn 2 script: However by all accounts the film wont actually be a sequel to the 1997 film, instead it’s looking like McFarlane is pulling an Incredible Hulk on us! I don’t mean that he’s turning green […]

Logans Run: No Singer for You

Two bits of news that made me smile today: Firstly I had my second follow up with the eye surgeon this morning and he’s extremely happy with the progress that my eye is making. The vision is starting to reach a point where it rivals the former ability of my eye; given that it has […]

EOL: Giving My Eye One Last Meal

Well, a half expected phone call came through earlier which has meant that I have a little less time to spend with my natural born right eye. Monica Bellucci: The reason we have eyes in the first place. As a result of some rapid deterioration in my left eye the corneal graft that we managed […]
