‘Big Ass Spider’ Trailer

A movie named “Big Ass Spider” probably doesn’t put one in the mind of “Remains of the Day” or “The King’s Speech;” which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  What it does do is to remind me of those Saturday afternoon matinee-type movies that came on Channel 11 (WPIX) in Manhattan when I was growing up, […]

Paul Giamatti Is The Rhino

A few months ago I read that Paul Giamatti was interested in playing the Rhino, a member of Spider-Man’s rogues gallery.  At the time I recall thinking that that was some of the most awesome casting that I have heard in a long while–mainly because he actually looks like the character–though I didn’t think much […]

Another Irritating Thing About Hulu

I am really trying to like Hulu.  I even posted a complementary post a day or so ago, though just when I am feeling good about them, they go and do something irritating (which may be part of someone’s master plan).  And the funny thing, despite my griping, is that they must being doing something right, […]

‘The Walking Dead’ Stumbles (Again)

Recently I have been thinking about the old proverb, “Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.” I have no idea what it means, literally because I can’t see any reason why anyone would look a horse, gift or otherwise, in the mouth.  Though, if you’re talking figuratively, then I guess it’s saying that if […]

S.H.I.E.L.D on ABC

This is so cool.  According to Hollywood Reporter Joss Whedon is developing a television based upon S.H.I.E.L.D (Supreme Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division) for ABC.  The best thing about this is that a S.H.I.E.L.D series can deal with more traditional threats as well as those of a super-powered nature. It’s uncertain if Whedon will […]
