    The A-Team Remake? March 4th, 2010

    I know there’s a remake of the television show “The A-Team” that is to be released soon to theaters, but I DON’T think this is what was intended.

    Interesting and funny alternate ending to The Lord Of The Rings might have ended if someone had noticed the major plot flaw. A major tip o’ the cap to my wonderful wife for discovering this little gem.

    An American Carol: Worth Seeing In Theaters? August 21st, 2008

    An American Carol” is filmaker David Zucker’s (“Airplane”,”The Naked Gun”) satire on liberals and liberalism with special emphasis on Michael Moore (known in “An American Carol” as Michael Malone).

    Here are examples of David Zucker over-the-top, yet rather effective, political ads.

    Watchmen: The Movie July 18th, 2008

    I, as well as countless fans, have been waiting for this movie for a long, long time. In fact, ever since I first read, and re-read, and re-re-read (in order to fully grasp the plots and subplots as well as the subtle nuances, multiple readings are necessary) the graphic novel, The Watchmen, back in the late 80’s, I wondered if a movie even could be made that would do it justice. Creator Alan Moore never thought so and claims he won’t see any movie made from his creation. Over twenty years late, the movie has been made and is scheduled for release in the spring of 2009. I will be there.

    Justice League Movie August 23rd, 2007

    Justice League

    In the latest addition to comic book based movies the film adaptation of DC’s Justice League comic book series could begin casting as early as next week. Warner Brothers is apparently fast-tracking the movie and rumors are flying that it could be made as a motion-capture CG-animation movie. Considering that this movie will feature several superheroes, it makes sense to use the computer-generation medium. That way you can hire just about any actor, voice-record them and synch it with the CG.

    So with that in mind, let’s have a little fantasy casting call. Who would you cast in the voice roles of the various super heroes like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, etc.? Leave your casting suggestions in the comments section.

    For whatever it’s worth, here’s a graphic I made based upon an idea my wife came up with while we were rambling about in our car. I’d like it on a t-shirt and a mug.

    Steampunk Star Wars March 2nd, 2007

    Darth Vader, Steampunk Style

    Eric Poulton, a self-described “art nerd, a computer geek, and a grammar dork” has created a series of art pieces taking elements of the Star Wars universe and recreating them in an artistic steampunk style. It’s a very unique interpretation and I hope he continues with it.

    A tip o’ the cap to Boing Boing for the heads up on this coolness.

    Peter Boyle (1935-2006) — R.I.P. December 13th, 2006

    Peter Boyle
    (October 18, 1935 — December 12, 2006)

    Peter Boyle passed away yesterday in New York City at age 71 and had been suffering from multiple myeloma and heart disease. Obviously he is best known for his long-running character of Frank Barrone on the television series “Everybody Loves Raymond” and playing the monster in the movie “Young Frankenstein.” One of his movie roles that I particularly enjoyed was that of attorney Carl Lazlo in the movie “Where The Buffalo Roam.” That movie starred Bill Murray as Hunter S. Thompson and even though Murray captured the spirit and essence of Thompson and was quite funny, Boyle pretty much stole the movie due to his acting chops in the scenes he shared with Murray. Another lesser known movie worth checking out is “Joe” where Boyle plays Joe Curran, a factory worker who hates hippies, blacks and anyone who he sees as “different.” His character in the movie is dark and brooding but Boyle gives the character great depth. It’s definitely worth searching for at your local movie rental store. He also appeared in one of my favorite X-Files episodes, “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose” in which he played Clyde Bruckman, a reluctant psychic whose flashes of future events inevitably revolve around an individual’s demise. FBI agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) enlists Bruckman’s help in finding a killer known as “the Puppet,” another man with psychic powers. This episode is highlighted by Boyle’s sad performance as a man who can’t escape his visions of death. Boyle won an Emmy in 1996 for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Clyde Bruckman.

    I Just Despise That Movie December 10th, 2006

    A Christmas Story
    A Christmas Story
    I Just Don’t Get It

    I have a confession to make. I absolutely hate the movie “A Christmas Story.” Hate may be too nice of a word for my feelings. Maybe loath. Despise. Maybe there isn’t a word strong enough to adequately describe my feelings for this movie that I feel is putrid. I honestly can’t understand why so many people love it. To me all the characters are completely annoying and frankly, in my “movieland” I’d have Hannibal Lechter drop by for a visit to take ’em all out. And not to a Chinese dinner, either. Frankly, I find the kid (played by Peter Billingsly) to be a whiny, snot-nosed little brat who desperately needs to be beaten half to death at school. And the father, played by Darren McGavin whose body of work I have always appreciated, seems to have taught the boy all the finer aspects of being a pain in the butt. I just want to shoot Ralphie out of a cannon…straight into a brick wall. Even Melinda Dillon as the mom was mind-numbingly annoying. As actors, they all did fine jobs. It’s just all the main characters annoyed me so much, I just wish they would all drop dead on the screen. The one time I managed to watch the movie from beginning to end, I think my blood pressure almost caused me to stroke out. Plus the parts that weren’t annoying to me we so sickenly sweet, I thought I’d lapse into a diabetic coma.

    Am I utterly alone in my feelings for this movie? Is this movie so universally loved that even Saddam Hussein, Usama Bin Laden and Kim Jong Il are counted as fans? Or are there others out there who want the Parker family blasted off the face of the movieland earth within the first ten minutes? Speak up, folks. Let me know.
