I guess we’re all sharing our feelings about Time Bandits, which I watched this weekend for the first time in, what, 25 years? I first saw it when I was 12, and I loved it. I loved it like Vincent loves Pansy.
Lemme tell you, it’s not easy to watch it now.
“What’s Your Favorite Movie?” To answer that question is a huge amount of pressure. One’s favorite movie is more than just an opinion. It’s an attempt to sum up WHO YOU ARE. If Caddyshack is someone’s favorite movie, then you have a pretty good idea of who that person is. Prove me wrong, Caddyshack fans. (Prove. Me. …
To my left, assuming my HTML soft has deployed correctly, is what is alleged to be the first poster for the upcoming Neuromancer movie, directed by Joseph “Toxic” Kahn and starring — wait for it — Hayden Christensen as Case. How can such things be, you ask.
But hope springs eternal. Maybe Christensen will have his preferences set to …
So Breaking Dawn is out. 754 pages of Cullen-lovin’ goodness. I’m on record as a Stephenie Meyer fan, but even a fan can flex his critical talons. In fact the Twilight fan community seems to be pretty much up in arms about this book. So here goes. Spoilers follow. Mega-spoilers. Seriously. If you’re not into these books, or haven’t read …
Apparently there’s an annual Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge, and George Lucas himself picks one of the winners. Like amateur Star Wars parodies since time immemorial, this one is … sort of funny. It’s probably funnier if you’ve seen Juno. Which I haven’t.
Goodbye to skins, goodbye to wings
Popcorn shrimp no more
Farewell, all greasy, crispy things
Bennigan’s has closed its door
Adios fajitas, adieu French fries
Sayonara, egg rolls, mini
The end of Brownie Bottom Pies
Yes, Bennigan’s is fini
What did her in, most loved of chains?
Well, science says say it’s that
The appetizers …
I’m back from vacation, and apparently the Nerd World didn’t stop spinning while I was gone. They went ahead and released the 2nd and 3rd acts of Dr. Horrible’s Singalong Blog without me. (You can’t fault Nathan Fillion’s delivery of the line, “The hammer is my penis.” Though is there a bad way to deliver that line?) And Comic-Con …
If there is one cultural event in no danger of being underreported, it’s the San Diego Comic Book Convention. I’m shocked the internet was able to handle its regular duties (porn, stock info, amateur porn), with all the bandwidth being devoted to frantic photos of Hugh Jackman, the Owlship and Lego Indiana Jones standing next to a guy …
Gotham City Family Court
Commissioner James Gordon
The Plaintiff above named, complaining of the Defendant herein, alleges and states as follows:
1) The parties hereto are husband and wife. Throughout the marriage, the Plaintiff has been a faithful wife and loving mother of their son and …
I just Googled the phrase “Who Watches the Watchmen Trailer,” and got 545 hits. So much for that blog title.
Lord, I wish I had the strength of will to wait see this trailer as it was meant to be seen: in a theater crammed with fanboys lusting to see The Dark Knight — fanboys who don’t know that before Nolan’s sad sad sad …
I’m going on vacation. Back 7/28. You all like him better anyway.
This week, the internet has been ablaze with stories like this one on CNET.
Okay, not ablaze. But a bunch of articles. Here’s the deal. A Simpsons episode I wrote, called “The Dad Who Knew Too Little,” had a joke in it where Homer gave his email address as: ChunkyLover53@aol.com. Ha ha. Homer thinks of himself as fat and sexy. Ha …
