Shyamalan: The Green Monster

I know that sometimes, here on EOL (PowersCosmic) I can take a pretty hard line with the folks that create content for the mediums of film and television. I know that I can, at times, seem pretty scathing, but I hope that my posts here are never without hope or at least a hint of […]

Batman: No Katie for You!

Clearly Katie Holmes knows more about the film and television industry than I do… I mean, I haven’t appeared in a handful of movies or on a reasonably successful (but virtually un-watchable) television series, nor have I married Tom Cruise. So maybe, just maybe, I’m not quite in the right position to point out that […]

Zombies: Another Invasion

It’s probably a result of having her life plastered all over the cover of every magazine in every supermarket in Australia, but I’d pretty much lost interest in whatever it was that Nicole Kidman has been up to lately. Sure, I know that she just married that country singer – how could I not? But […]

Movie: Another Shit Idea

Life isn’t fair. The fact is that sometimes life outright sucks. Take for example the double standard that comes into play when an actor is typecast (Sure, there are far greater examples of why life sucks, but this is the one we’re running with today, ok kids!?): Look at guys like Don Adams, Fred Gwynne […]

Ironman: Potts Really Cast

Like with most reasonably high profile graphic novel adaptations, speculation around the casting of the main characters for the upcoming IRON MAN movie has been running a little rampant. We’ve known for a while now that Robert Downey Jnr. will be donning the tin suit, but the role of “Pepper” Potts has been, up until […]

Vampires: Lost Boys 2

Anybody can have a bad idea. Some of them can even achieve ‘really bad’ status, but to come up with a notion, utterly unmatchable in the scope of it’s ‘shit-idea-edness’, you need the kind of people who run a television network. Usually we’re talking about the boobs from FOX. However, every once in a while […]

Movie: Indy vs The Mummy

Many films have attempted to capture audiences with the same sense of ‘boys own’ adventure that the Indiana Jones trilogy has owned since the release of Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981. Some have come close, some not so much. Personally I believe that not even it’s own sequels matched the sense of fun […]

Wonder Woman: 1 in the Hand

Until there’s actually an official announcement about the casting of Wonder Woman we’re going to have to contend with a million and one names being ‘associated’ with the part. From the very early stages there was talk that Joss Whedon would draw upon the bevy of talented female starlets that he’s previously worked with. Charisma […]

Highlander: The Sour-ce

For anyone who was (or I suppose, is) a fan of the Buffy spin off series ANGEL an extended tale of one seeking redemption for prior sins is a familiar one [Well, to be fair, Joss Whedon didn’t mastermind the concept, but sighting the works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge on a lowbrow site like this […]

Movie: The Zyzzyx Saga

There’s a pretty high probability that if you’ve heard of the movie “Zyzzyx Rd” it’s because you, like me, read the story doing the rounds earlier this week. For those of you who missed the talk, Variety ran a story outlining the fact that Zyzzyx Rd made the lowest box office taking of any movie […]
