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, […]
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 […]
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, […]
What do you get when you take quite possibly the strangest take on World War II ever, combined with dinosaurs, dinosaur Nazi-men, Hitler, and model work that would make old school “Doctor Who” look like “Star Wars? You get “Danger 5,” an Australian export currently spooling on Hulu that refreshingly doesn’t even attempt to explain […]
WordPress.com has prepared an annual report on my blog, which I thought I would share. Speaking of sharing, tomorrow is New Year’s Eve, and I wish everyone the best in the upcoming year, especially those that are working hard, but somehow earning less… Or those individuals that, despite their best efforts, can’t make it home […]

Though, if you’re talking figuratively, then I guess it’s saying that if […]
At 2314 President Obama’s campaign won Ohio, sending him over the 270 mark (274, to be exact), and returning him to the Presidency of the United States.
This trailer looks like ‘The Dark Knight’ of the Iron Man. And I have to say, I liked it. I also liked that there was no metal suit is sight when the Mandarin (though Ben Kingsley’s accent struck me as a bit odd) showed up and that Guy Pearce, in the little bit of time […]
You want some real thrills and chills? Check out the Biden/Ryan debate. Some of the best television EVER!
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 […]
