Horror: 30 Days of Night

Usually I’m the first guy in line to poke fun at any of the so called ‘actors’ out there with an appearance in an Australian Soap-Opera mentioned in their bio. As a rule the performances in your typical Aussie Soap are pretty abysmal, but like all rules there are exceptions. Melissa George happens to be […]

Heroes: Genesis

A few of days ago I mentioned a couple of the new shows that are either airing now, or due to air soon, which have caught my attention. Well, after having had the chance to slap my eyeballs up against the pilot for the new NBC series, Heroes, I can pretty much tell that I’m […]

Ghost Rider: Cage is a Dork

Let me start out by saying this: I don’t dislike Nicolas Cage, I think he’s a fine… no, fantastic actor. In the right role he can be captivating and utterly convincing. His performances in Birdy, Raising Arizona, Leaving Las Vegas, and Adaptation were among a few of his film choices that have demonstrated the great […]

IronMan: Favreau’s Metal

The Iron Man Postermore I read, or see as the case may be, about Jon Favreau’s take on where he’s going with Iron Man, the more I’m confident that Favreau has his head in the right place to turn out a great superhero movie. In a video interview with IGN (at Comic-Con) Favreau talked about […]

Puppet Stuff: New Henson Projects

There’s a butt load of news kicking around at the moment, all related to comic to movie (or television) stuff. Mostly because of the huge comic convention, creatively titled Comic-Con, which took place over the last four days in San Diego. A lot of the news, for a nerd like myself, is really ‘rock your […]

Veronica Mars: Too Hot To Stop

It could be that we’re on the cusp of another television tragedy folks. Albeit no-where near the complete dick-up that FOX made of Firefly… No, this is more likely to be in the league of Due South, which disappeared from television screens after surviving one or two axing attempts a few years back. The third […]

Aimless Augury: Superhero Sighting?

This is going to be a bit of a long haul team, but the destination of this post is to get us to a place where I make a ridiculous prediction about the possible appearance of a character on a television show. It’s going to be quite the trek, so if you’re brave or extremely […]

Box Office: Supes vs Spidey Round 2

The last time I posted about the Spider-Man box office results compared to the Superman Returns figures I asked the question “how, in any way shape or form, does Spiderman beat Superman?”. The answer, at the time, was tentatively, “At the Box Office!”… Well, it seems that the point is being brought home in a […]

My Tube: New stuff

This time of year there’s usually something of an entertainment void to be filled. All the shows that have sucked you in over the course of the last few months either leave you hanging after some suspenseful climax or else they just disappear, never to be seen again… or, in the case of INVASION, they […]

Good Omens: No Depp for You!

Quite some time ago, in a forum thread now lost to the ages, a discussion took place about the works of Douglas Adams. In that thread I made one of the few statements that I will always stand by (Unlike a lot of the crap I usually post on this site, which if ever questioned […]
