So here’s an interesting thing about the internet –even the smallest little ideas can go viral.  Sure, it’s obvious, clichéd, whatever.  Videos and songs and ideas spread super-quickly nowadays.  Look at the Carl Sagan ‘Glorious Dawn’ video, or the way Ol’ Bets White ended up on SNL last month. Any idea can gain traction in [...]

Okay, this trailer is all flash bang boom.  Me likey.  Looks like high octane almost summer fun.  No, really.  Popcorn adventure in a cool dark cavernous room while the sun starts sizzling outside the theater?  Marvelous.  Sign me up and take my money.  If you like staring at Mr. Donnie Darko himself, Jake Gyllenhaal, this [...]

Robin Hood 2010

Robin Hood.  Nope.  No thanks.  I’m good.  I’ve seen it in black white.  I’ve seen it as a cartoon.  I’ve seen it played by an American.  I’ve seen it parodied.  I think I’m good.  This is nothing against director Ridley Scott – love the man.  Love Alien (giddy about his just announced prequels!), Blade Runner [...]

Comic Con

The Wizard World Comic Con at the Anaheim Convention Center was just held the other weekend, April 16th through the 18th – same weekend as the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was taking place deep in the California desert.  What an interesting contrast for weekend event planning.  It’s the geeks versus the stoners, while [...]

Barfing up crows?  Cool. Malkovitch?…. Jury’s still out [...]

Okay, this TRON Legacy teaser trailer is some cool shit.  I’m totally stoked and nothing’s going to keep me from standing in line on opening day (unless one of you hooks me up with a private screening – in which case you’ll have earned yourself a love slave or a Dr. Pepper). The first teaser [...]

Of the many pleasures of geekdom and nerdery, one of the most rewarding is when you discover some glint of awesomeness in what’s otherwise a pile of crud. Pop culture offers an endless buffet of slick, shiny product that’s usually meant to coax more dollars from your wallet than thoughts from your deepest psyche. But [...]

Tim Burton’s World on Display at MOMA

Surreal. Larger than life. Hauntingly hysterical. It might be the black and white stripes, or maybe it’s that few of his protagonists look like they’ve had a decent night’s sleep in years, but you know Tim Burton’s work when you see it. (OK, Johnny Depp might be another clue.) But you’ve never seen Tim Burton’s [...]
