If this is a scene from Iron Man 2, I’m passing.
Jose, could we get more kung fu clips, please?
Sure. I’ll throw some more in here tonight.
Great! I just saw So Close last night. The whole movie’s pretty awesome, and I think the policewoman (Karen Hung?) stole the show.
Karen Mok you mean? It’s weird that wou watched that this week. That was one of the movies I was going to put a clip up for. Though I think I put a clip up a long while ago on a Kung Fu Friday post too.
I love that movie. Vicky Zhao Wei was great in it as well. I kinda have a thing for her.
Yeah, that final fight scene was unbelievable.
looks like i’m not the only nightowl around here
I’ve been watching 3:10 to Yuma, Good,bad&Ugly and now I’m about to put in Perspolis in the dvd can’t sleep.
The original 3:10 or the new one?
I’m a western fiend
Have you ever seen Open Range(2003)? I loved that movie!
How about The Proposition?
Jackie is a freak of nature, was watching Forbidden Kingdom recently and he still got it. Guy is what 60?
Oh my Grodd, that was a bad movie at whatever age he was and where did they get that Shia wanna-be anyway? Somewhere during Li’s and Chan’s fight scene I was halfway expecting Optimus Prime to show up!
I agree. I wanted to like that movie but man was I disappointed. All I know the “Shia wanna-be” from is Will & Grace(he was Jack’s son) and the fun and, imo, underrated Sky High.
Sky high was so so, I own it but rarely watch it.
Felt too Power Rangers
You beat me since I don’t even own. To be honest, I haven’t seen it since I saw it the one time at the theater, but I do remember liking it. I know it was a kids’ movie, but I just liked how they embraced the culture & costumes of superheroes instead of making the characters wear leather jumpsuits.
Sky High was cool, man.
Gotta admit it was amazing neither of those guys are spring chickens
Jackie Chan don’t play.
No he dont
Will he ever win a major award for something? Give the guy some kind of official recognition Hollywood!
He got an MTV Movie Award(I think it was “lifetime achievement”) around the time Rumble In The Bronx came out. Does that count? LOL!
Nothing MTV does counts anymore lol
At least an award for stunt work
Jet Li should have whipped out the belt early on in the fight. What the hell?
In 3D Delux baby!!! 😛
Man, I have to get this pronto.
I believe it comes out for PS3/X-BOX 360 on May 11th.
I still haven’t played the first Arkham game. But I plan to soon. Right now my weekend consist of me playing Heavy Rain. Maybe a few breaks for Marvel VS Capcom 🙂
Mine has consisted of strong winds that knock down street lights, and shut down BOTH Superstore and Wal-Mart 🙂
Did you hear that Capsom is going to announce Marvel vs Capcom 3 sometime soonish?
Also, I played Yakuza 3 last night for about two hours…and forgot to SAVE the game. Fuck…
Ouch, burn 😦
Ya, I think that’s why games now have an “auto save” feature. For idiots like me who drink and game.
Oh really? Awesome. I am still happy the fans demanded Marvel VS Capcom to return. Thank god for the fans right? 🙂
Sorry to hear about your dilemma with Yakuza 3. My situation is actually worse because I had all my files on my other account and when my PS3 came back I couldn’t get it to switch, but I’m too lazy to take it back to fix it (again) – so I’m just gonna stay with my new account. Good thing there’s over 100 different ways to play Heavy Rain otherwise I’d be rather pissed.
I only made it to chapter 10 with Yakuza 3 – But it was a pretty solid game so I might just start over on a harder setting. Get my money’s worth 🙂
But what about your trophies? 😦
I knowwww… Its just so annoying having to go back again. I feel like if I just fiddle around I’ll be able to transfer them all but if all else fails I’ll probably go back. I just wanna wait a bit before I bring it back in.
I got Heavy Rain the same time this all happened so I never got to really play it – so this weekend is dedicated to it. Really – this story is genius. Its PT Anderson meets Ed Brubaker.
What system do you usually use for gaming J.?
I use X-Box 360, not a fan for Playstation.
PS3 is starting to get better. For years I didn’t have much to play and was mainly on my 360 – but new releases like Yakuza 3, God of War 3, and the amazing, the utterly fucking fantastic Heavy Rain really prove why this system is great 🙂
But I’m going crazy for the new Splinter Cell that’s for sure.
He he. I am not an XBox fan…at all. I actually despise it more than I despise Bendis comics. 😛
YOU BROKE MY HEART! 😦
Sorry. I can’t get into a system that has like a 60% failure rate. 🙂
Yeah, the red ring of death stuck me twice and thats why I officially converted to Play station. Microsoft really is nothing but greedy workers. Constant renewal fees, a system prone to break down.
its just criminal. No game is worth it. Thank god Splinter Cell is PC too 🙂
My Arcade one suffered from the red ring of death, and now I currently use my roommates, and will hopefullu get my own soon.
Every time I turn my xbox on for that half of a second it takes to flash green and bring the xbox logo on the screen I hold my breath. I’m so freaked out by the red ring
Oh no. I just got a 360. And I heard they fixed that shit 😦
You were playing with your yakuza for two hours? Doesn’t that start to chafe?
Alright, here’s a question from an unsophisticated internet user. How do I post a Youtube video to this blog?
Click on the embed button, and then right click “copy”, and then come back here, and in the comment box, right click paste, it will come out a bunch of words, but click submit when you’re done despite that, and we’ll have a video from you.
Does anyone watch V? I thought we were finally gonna have a mouse swallowing. They teased us, the bastards.
I really enjoy V. Even though I’m sad to see Georgey go.
Poor guy wasn’t in the promtional pics.. /:
They showed him in the preview for next week’s episode. How do you know he’s a goner for sure?
I’m enjoying V a lot! It may not be ground breaking or Emmy worthy, but it’s definitely worth watching. I’m just happy that it’s more faithful and less pretentious than the Battlestar Galactica remake(I don’t care what critics say, that show was overrated and went downhill after the second season).
I agree about wanting to see some rodent meals and hoping Georgey is still alive.
You did not just criticize Battlestar Galactica. Oh no you didn’t.
If you like Battlestar Galactica, you’re a fool! LOL!!!
I saw every episode and webisode until the second half of the last season. I just found myself liking it less and less as it went on. I’m embarassed to say that I still haven’t gotten around to watching the second half of the last season(I think it consisted of 11 episodes) after I heard the way it ended & how even diehard fans hated it.
The ending of BSG was a let down, but it was still a good show while it lasted.
I am a fool, but not for liking BsG.
It was a great, great, great show, although it did have some flaws. First of all, it was too depressing at times. They were constantly killing off characters. When they killed off Dee to start the last season, that just made me sick. Revealing Ellen Tigh as the 12th Cylon really cheapened her death at Col. Tigh’s hands. That was a hell of a moment. And, of course, the final episode. And it wasn’t even all of the final episode. It was a great final episode, up until the last 15 minutes. The ending was ridiculous and you could tell the writers hadn’t thought up anything at all, especially with respect to Starbuck. They had promised us in commercials and print advertisements that all would be revealed in the final episode. I know you haven’t watched it yet so I won’t give it away, but what they did with Starbuck was a total copout. I felt like throwing my tv out the window, but I already have two strikes and didn’t need the cops showing up at my door again.
BSG!? What a bunch of nerds.
Was that how BSG ended? No wonder people hated it.
Wow. What a shitty ending! 🙂 Hope Lost is better.
Either the doors in Poland are really weak or the old folk are tough as hell.
I like how the guy still had his glasses on after all that..
I hope you know I was kidding about the “fool” comment, ‘ballsack.
A friend of mine made a great comment about BSG(he gave up on it long before I did). “I don’t need to watch a show that makes me want to commit suicide after every episode.”
I felt less bad about Dee than you did since she screwed over Billy. I did feel awful about the Chief’s wife being killed and everyone blaming it on a suicide.
I just hated what I heard about the last episode. Adama abandons his son due to his grief over the death of the President. This happened in our past and is explained away by all of the technology in the show being destroyed. We never got to see more of Boxy from the initial movie. And most importantly, there were no damn daggits!!!
I knew you were kidding, but the voices in my head didn’t.
The Dee/Lee romance was a bit ridiculous, especially since it took place the next episode after Billy died, but I fault the writers for that. Plus, the actor who played Billy wanted to leave the show, so that left them in a bind. I also felt bad about killing off the chief’s wife. That was another one of those depressing moments I could have done without.
I would have loved to have seen a daggit on the show. I was hoping we’d see one on Caprica. Now there’s a show that sucks. Nothing ever happens on that show! The first season has ended and not a whole lot has really happened since the pilot.
So what…they should all have hugged and sang Kumbiya?
BSG was one of the great TV shows of the last decade.
So CB, are you enjoying the sequel to BSG? Otherwise know as Stargate Universe!
I have to rent some BSG seasons. Sounds interesting.
I haven’t seen the trailers for next week’s episode of V. It has Georgey? I think out of all of them, he has the most ambition to stop the invasion. I do hope the priest get’s more of a story as well. I like his character a lot.
I am definitely a fan of V, especially the last two episodes. Very fast paced with a lot of action. A nice chance of pace after an episode of Lost.
I watched V until the break. When it came back after Lost it defiantly wasn’t worth watching over SouthLand on TNT. I might catch up on Hulu, but the series didn’t grab me.
I liked the original series, and started watching this since Laura Vandervoort is a star and was missing having a sci-fi show to tune into.
I was greatly suprised. Check it out on Hulu if you get a chance. It’s getting better.
I agree. It is getting better. I was ready to give it up, but the teaser we got at the end of the first season got me hooked.
I think the assembled CCW lot might appreciate todays Woot T-shirt second place winner.
Whenever someone posts a link in their comment that has never been posted on the blog before it marks it as spam and I have to approve it. So, I guess it is a kind of glitch.
that makes sense. is there any way to post this as an image?
I think people might like the shirt. And Woot is a pretty cool site. They sell wine, electronics and original t-shirts.
also, obviously above I didn’t need those url tags.

I actually don’t know how to post pics in the comments section.
I haven’t figured it out yet either.
(stupid question)Anyone watching Fringe?
If so, what do you think Peter’s reaction is going to be when Walter tells him where he’s really from?
I don’t think it’s going to be good. It took a while for Peter to trust Walter again. This will just throw all the progress they have made with their relationship out the window. It will be interesting to see if this is even resolved this season.
Has this show gotten better? I dropped it after the 3rd episode of the first season. I felt the girl couldn’t act, there was no chemistry among the leads, and it already had a strike against it for me with Orci & Kurtzman as co-creators/writers. I was somewhat intrigued when I heard about everyone going nuts for the first season finale, but I still haven’t tried to give it a second chance.
Just a case of it not being your cup of tea, I think. I love the show. It’s not perfect, but it’s incredible scifi.
The show has gotten much much better. It really didn’t start picking up until half way through the first season but it is now probably my favorite show on television. I think if you gave it another chance you would enjoy it.
Snart, you made it to the 3rd episode? You did one better than me. I just can’t get into a show where the lady is Mulder, the dude is Scully and everyone else just seems to be “there”. For as crappy asit is Heroes still has characters that I can care about and although some of the costuming is laughable, Smallville can at least provide some eye candy. All Fringe does is make me more upset that Pushing Daisies and the Sarah Connor Chronicles is off the air
If its any consolation.. I still think Lost sucks though!
Pushing Daisies was great! It was like part fairy tale & part Tim Burton but better. I’ve stuck with Smallville all these years. While it still feels like a syndicated genre show with a better budget, it’s gotten a lot better the last year or so. As hot as the cheerleader is, I never got past the first season of Heroes. SCC was better than I thought it would be, but except for the first movie, I’ve grown weary of the whole Terminator franchise over the years. I saw the first 2 1/2 years of Lost but fell behind. I might watch it after the show has ended, but it seems like you need to put a lot of effort into it just to get the most out of it. I don’t have the time or patience others seem to.
Considering everything you’ve just said, it still sounds like you preferred all those shows to that X-files-lite show.
From what I saw of Fringe, definitely. Hell, even though I came late to it, I probably prefer X-Files to every show we just mentioned. Scully was hot, Mulder was funny, they had a great score, and they had no problem giving us monsters(I read somewhere that they don’t plan on using aliens or creatures in Fringe; I’m not sure if that’s changed yet or not).
Nothing can beat the X-Files.
It seems like the studios are terrified to use too much sci-fi. The V writers aren’t allowed to use the word “alien”.
Fringe wants to leave out monsters.
Heroes is just a lame X-Men rip off without costumes or actual superheroes.
Smallville, though I still digg that show, can’t use the Superman suit. I understand the whole legal reason, but still. It makes a good 4th example!
Fringe had a porcupine monster down a airplane in the first season
It makes me mad that Chris Carter doesn’t do more work these days. I loved X-Files and liked Millenium. I believe the second X-Files movie was the only thing he’s done in quite awhile. I know a lot of people hated it but I liked it. I’m kinda scared to watch it a second time though since I might have only liked it due to my taking vicodin shortly before seing the movie(passing a kidney stone sucks ass).
At least V kept them lizard-like aliens. After the Battlestar Galactica remake took almost all of the fantasy out of the original, I was scared V was going to be more West Wing than sci-fi.
Peter is gonna freak out, but from interviews I’ve read the guy playing Walter said it’ll bring them closer.
John Noble alone is one reason why I love Fringe. Walter is an amazing character. I really hope Peter does grow closer to his father. After all they’ve seen, they can handle earth shattering news like that.
My favorite actor on the show is Lance Reddick, if they ever get around to a JLA movie he must I repeat must be Martian Manhunter
That would be great casting choice. Like a lot of people, I thought he was superb on the Wire. If anyone reading this has not checked out The Wire, I highly recommend it. The first three seasons especially.
Ok we are in sinc the Wire is pretty much the one show me and my buddies watch together.
Martian Manhunter I think should be played by a non-anglo actor and a non-american someone “alien” as it were. Reddick has that odd/somewhat creepy thing about him and a great voice.
I agree. And he has that slightly stiff posture, too. Maybe he’s already a Martian and we just don’t know.
Could be his eyes are what creeps me out, very alien stare
Did you guys read Invincible Return #1, and if so did you think it was a good jumping on point.
I think it was a GREAT jumping on point. It catches people up with almost everything they need to know to enjoy the Viltumite War storyline.
I’m thinking about checking it out, but I’m really trying to budget myself lately, and the last thing I need is another great book to get hooked into.
Me to, but I really want to support a writer like Kirkman, because I agree with some comments he made awhile back about the industry, and I thought Return would be a good jumping on point for me seeing that I really never red anything he’s done and I’m definitely going to watch the Walking Dead TV show when it goes to air.
I don’t read Invincible, but I still appreaciate a book that repeatedly offers 1-shots in order to bring new fans on board. This has got to be at least the 3rd time Kirkman has done that with this series.
It’s time to get onboard my man Ivincible is pretty much this generation’s spider-man
I read the first 2 trades awhile back and while I didn’t hate it, I didn’t like it enough to keep reading.
That’s kind of my take on it as well. It’s the book that Amazing Spider-man should be. I thought Invincible Returns was sweet…very much looking forward to what’s coming next. On the weeks it comes out, Invincible always finds its way to the top of my read pile.
And it doesn’t hurt that it’s creator-owned and written by my fellow Kentucky boy Kirkman.
Batman #698 comes out next week. It will still suck since Tony Daniel will be writing it. But at least Guillem March will be penciling it! Apparently, quite a lot of people have been upset with the last arc, more people are seeing that he is not good. That IS good!
I love Guillem March! The stuff he does on Gotham City Sirens always blows me away, and it seems to get better every month. The cover to the issue that just came out is my favorite so far. His art is so good hopefully it will outshine the shit story Daniel has planned.
Oh and I’m pretty sure I heard somewhere that Daniel is staying on the title longer because DC was happy with his work. How they are happy with sub-par art and unimaginative story lines I don’t know.
That decision was clearly made by someone who was either drunk or stoned.
Daniels is staying? That’s…pretty godawful depressing news. I was hoping Morrison would come back after 700. I like Guillem March, but I’ll have to flip though the next Batman issue before I plunk my money down. The idea of paying money for a Tony Daniels story is not very appealing.
Yeah Judd Winick was supposed to start on Batman after Daniel was done with his shitatious story line but they wanted Daniel on Batman for the foreseeable future and Winick on JLA: Generation Lost.
What’s up with this cover? Take away the word balloons and it looks really bizarre.
Oh just further proof of Alan Moore’s thesis that superheroes are all perverts.
That cover just redefined wrong.
What is wrong with this picture =)
lol that’s so wrong
OMG! Where’s the editor?
Joined the priesthood lol
Has anyone read Phonogram? I considered it thinking “Oh,this is about music and record collecting and relationship” but when I flip thru it it seems like not alot going on.Any thoughts?
Ya, it isn’t REALLY about music though music does kinda play an important role in it if that makes any sense. I never read the first one but did read the second one. That definitely dealt more with relationships than anything else. I thought it was ok. Art was great though.
This is going to sound like a weird question, but is the over all tone more “Hi we’re indie rock hipsters” or “Boo hoo,I don’t know how to to tell Joan I love her”? Is it closer to the BLUE MONDAY comic or a Dashboard Confessional record?
As someone who’s considering getting into the gaming deal, my interest lies with the graphics moreso than the playability. From the folks that I’ve been speaking to, the consensus seems to be the playstation and to stay away from the wii at all costs.
Agree? Disagree? Option?
I think Graphics are nice and all but playability is very important to me. Right now I’m playing a game called Heavy Rain and its playability in terms of re-playability so unquestionably is 100%. Every choice you make in the game has a different outcome. I can play the game 4 times thru in a row and it will end differently. Fighter games usually have good playability too. Street Fighter, Soul Calibur. God of War 3 is fun too.
I think Wii is more of a family system and if your into party fun kid games its fine. If I had children I’d probably buy a Wii since I think its a great family system. But Play station is the definite for an independent gamer.
Wii is for children. I have a friend who claimes he “totally owned wii firefighter”, it is a ridiculous game for people 11 yrs younger than him. 360 is were it’s at for me and my gaming fix. I’ve been playing Arkham Asylum all afternoon. That game is crack for me 🙂
The Wii is OK, it really is a family system, and for many of the games you need floor space to jump.. twirl.. and flail around to play the games. My wife just bought a coffee table for our living room that just rendered 90% of our Wii games unplayable at this time.
Still trying to figure a way to sneak a PS3 into the house =)
Claim it was a gift given to you from far away, and it must be met to it’s highest potential.
Sounds like you’re going to really prefer anything but Wii or portables, since you prefer graphics. My advise, however, is to try to play the exclusive games of each console to feel what you will be missing if you get the others. You never know what will be your impressions after actually tasting things, it may change your preference list.
I, however, still am pissed for not having a Wii because I just love Metroid too much
I haven’t had a Playstation or Xbox since their first incarnations but I do have a Wii(I’ve had every Nintendo system except for the Virtual Boy and the DS). While I love Nintendo’s first party games, I really grew tired of so many games having the Wii remote tacked onto them when it was unnecessary(sort of what movie studios are doing in making so many 3D films when it adds nothing to them). I’m happy the Wii helped dig Nintendo out of 3rd place in the console wars, I really wish the used the remote sparingly like they did with the light gun for the 8-bit system. While I get tempted to try a PS3 or 360 every once in a while, when I hear people talking about playing games non-stop for weeks on end, earning “trophies” due to how much they play and/or how much they score, and all of the online play that goes on, I feel like an old man. I’m sure if I got a new system, it would become a dust collector after the first month. I just don’t seem to have the ambition to put so much time into game playing. Even as a kid, I would almost prefer to watch my friends play or do something else after my first hour of playing.
Thanks guys. You’ve given me some things to contemplate. The playability aspect doesn’t appeal to me I guess because I have little to no interest in competition and what that brings with it. I’m cool with just the experiencing. Thx again for the input.
Whatever you think suits you the best is the best for you. 🙂
Yeah man, at the end of the day its about what ever one you have the most fun with 🙂
Its all up to you. If your having fun, then you made the right choice.
They have too many good ones to choose from but I think this is my favorite:
Just came back from watching Clash of the Titans and drinking Blue Moon(not necesesarily in that order). It wasn’t a good movie, but half-way through I surprisingly found myself enjoying it. Think I’m just a sucker for these Greek gods/fantasy stories. Original still kicks it’s ass however.
Ok,um…so like I come back into the house and I’ve already got a head full of malt liquor which has a higher alcohol content than beer and I put on a tape of 80’s era Ghost in the Machine Police and I see what looks like a Deemar logo for CCW and E. is wearing Variant Girl’s T-Shirt? Ok,then maybe somebody needs to start a thread about how Malcom the Pistols mgr just died,the Beyonder being a mutant inhuman is stupid,or what anybody thinks of the upcoming A-Team movie! 80’s,80’s,80’s!…I’m sure variant Girl would approve,at least I HOPE she would.( yes, Ma’am..I do like the music on yer website)
Nothing wrong with MALT LICKAH!
A-team looks good, but I’m more hyped for Losers
Ha!The Losers!I was talking to a co-worker about it a couple of weeks ago!He got excited when I told him dude that played Comedian from Watchmen was in it!An he doesn’t play a sadist/rapist! Hell,I kinda wish they would do a cable series based on 100 Bullets or a Movie on Brubaker’s Criminal.
By the way Deemar,excellent logo!
You gotta give LKR his props too he did all the heavy lifting
Yeah! What about me? Just kidding.
I was just saying what little you contribute
i just sent u something else
Got it love it 🙂
Cool…color banner! I’m guessing Ryan and or D, no?
Both I drew it Ryan colored it, we got a few more suprises Ironmuskrat’s banner is in the works and of course littleking and me got that secret project in May.
Ryan is great.An’ his blog is doubly so.He gave a shout to Mike Kaluta and if you know yer comics history,you understand.
It looks great deemar and LKR, It’s a nice personal touch.
Man, I can’t believe I missed the VG17 emblem! Sorry, C 😦
What is VG17?
VariantGirl, another member of the Nation and frequent contributor
She’s the Mama bear
The new header looks great! They’re still looking for the companion though:
You’ve been kidnapped??
I have yet to be whipped, it probably will happen sometime in the future.
Just so it’s clear; I was just making a joke about the use of the word ‘companion.’ Again, I think the art, pencils and colors as well as the layout all look amazing. If I wore a hat it would be off.
Did someone say companion?
I think they meant young people 🙂
Last nights Doctor Who was great but next weeks will be even better!
I really enjoyed yesterday’s episode. Next week’s does look quite awesome.
Oh shit, the new Doctor Who premired already?!
yeah i was pretty much sick of the daleks but next week looks good
btw who else is smitten with miss pond?
I am sooooo smitten with Ms. Pond.
She does have a bit of that Felicia Day thing going on.
Heckimlistening, if you’re in the US like me, the new Doctor Who premieres next Saturday(4/17) on BBC America. Since it has already aired in the UK, I’m assuming Jose and others just got a copy before the US officially airs it.
Oh sweet! Thanks SMART!
I’ll be watching it then.
Do I need to be watching this show? I’m never been into it other than a general awareness. I love Daleks, though.
Yes. You need to be watching this show.
Is the BBC not putting the full episodes online? I can’t find them.
I don’t think they are, no.
There are…other…ways to get these. Come to the Dark Side….
I’ll never join you!
Join me…and together we will rule The Pirate Bay as Seeder and Leecher.
Nooooooo… … That sounds particularly unappealing… sorry, dropped out of character there… a-hum, ooooooooo.
you have no idea what i’m talking about do you?
I’m hip to it. ex-nay on the orrent-tay. I just avoid it.
(*** Episode 5 first draft ***)
Vic: blah blah blah dark side.
Luke: Not really my thing.
Vic: Fair enough.
(Notes: I think we need to develop some conflict. I’m not feeling the menace of this Darth Vic guy. Also Darth Vic needs a new name. George)
I knew what you were talking about. Don’t know if that is necessarily a good thing though. Fuck, I need a girlfriend.
Alright, I’ve got the first two episodes of season five coming in….
I hope you like them. If we can get a decent amount of people on here watching the new series (and liking it) maybe I’ll start doing a weekly Doctor Who post.
Sounds like it could be good. I’ll put in my two cents after I’ve watched. Hopefully, I won’t need too much prior knowledge going in…
Might give the good doctor a go
Ok you guys talked me into it. I have never watched the show before, but I will start tonight, my downloads just finished.
I’ve watched the first episode of the new season and I give it a B+. A few chintzy effects, but it kind of adds to the overall wackiness. Really liked Who’s showdown with the Atraxi at the end. Now I’m getting the Confidential episodes as well…
Awesome. Ya, the chintzy effects come part and parcel with Doctor Who. You will learn to love them. Very happy to hear you you liked the first episode though. So very, very happy. Keep me posted as you watch the others. 🙂
I don’t know what it says about me that I didn’t really laugh hard at the Mr. Show clip until the guy started pissing himself. It reminded me of the late great Chris Farley as Dom Deluise.
Miss that guy
Kenan Thompson was a real down grade in SNL fat guys
Chris Farley and John Ritter are probably the only 2 celebrities who have died where I literally became extremely depressed when I heard the news.
For me Jim Henson,Biggie and Mike Weiringo (He’s probaly my biggest artistic influence)
As much as I love the Muppets, I think I remember “Mr. Hooper” dying(my grandmother was misinformed and told me Mr. Rogers had died) more than Jim Henson. I think it’s probably due to the fact that I never heard him speak as himself, only as his Muppet creations. I think Biggie & Weiringo were both talented, but they didn’t connect with me the same way Chris Farley or “Jack Tripper” did.
I was really into Dark Crystal, Fragglerock etc.. as a kid so I pretty much learned as much I could about Henson so at a young age I was aware of the man as much as his creations.
Farley aside from Darrell Hammond would be my favorite SNL guy by far although Bill Hader is creeping up on that list.
I don’t watch SNL anymore, but Bill Hader is great! Not only is he a comic guy, he stills any scene he’s in. I loved his bit roles in Adventureland and Pineapple Express.
He’s gonna have a long career after SNL for sure
And don’t forget his brilliant turn as Quall from Tim and Eric:
LMAO that…I almost choked on my apple.
The most depressing celebrity death for me was probably George Carlin.
That kinda makes sense heh..your humor is very Carlin.
Yeah he was a big loss, about the coolest old white dude ever I put him in the comedy holy trinity (Pryor, Carlin, Dangerfield)
I seem so out of touch when it comes to comedy legends. I appreciate what Richard Pryor did for the art form but I never found him that funny. Bill Hicks reminded me of Lenny Bruce; he took on touchy subjects but was more clever than funny. Other than being funny in Back To School, Sam Kinison’s appeal is lost on me.
Having said that, Carlin is my favorite comedian of all time right after Jeff Dunham(I keed, I keed). Not only did he stay relevant up until his death, he was always laugh out loud funny.
Kinison died way to young, I wanted to see him as a old comedian, Richard Pryor for me was the Apex of stand up he was a great story teller.
Dave Chappelle is my top stand up today along with Paul Mooney
He may not have been breaking taboos(at least not on stage if you believe some of the allegations thrown his way), but I would put Cosby over Pryor in terms of storytelling. Chappelle is definitely up there. I’ve only heard Paul Mooney on Opie & Anthony and never in stand-up.
I think Cosby was a great storyteller in the style that he was “spinning a yarn” Pyror told great stories in a different way. He could channel characters and bring you into the story.
That’s so weird you mention Carlin cuz I’ve been watching all of his Youtube clips for the past two days.
He never gets tired
which ones you watched? Post them sucka!
right now…do it…do it..
Well, I actually like Carlin’s political and religious stances more than his standup comedy. Like in this clip where he compares those who are religious to those who believe in UFOs.
You into Bill Maher?
Frankie Boyle is the funniest stand up at the moment
I like every comedian that’s been mentioned, and I also like Russell Brand. His autobiography My Bookie Wookwas quite entertaining. Aziz Ansari is also another recent fave.
Pryor: was the guy I could relate to the most.
Dangerfield: no one could keep me in stitches; line after line like Dangerfield
Carlin; flat out is my comedy sensei Not always funny, but always observant and often, deep
Kinison: Under-appreciated. If you can get past his loud abrasive shtick, he usually crafted a pretty good monologue
Cosby: I agree with you all on his storytelling ability, but if you’ve heard him recently..he sounds like his meds needs to be upped.
Farley: I never got.
Rock; Observant like Seinfeld, but funny
DeGeneress: Makes awkward, entertaining
Ralphie May: may be the funnist guy out there now
Dice and Tucker should do a tour together called WE WON’T BE BACK AFTER THESE MESSAGES
That is laser point Phil
Forgot about ralphie that is one funny obese SOB
As yes, the beloved Mr. Carlin. I remember seeing him in college when he made it up to the Burlington Auditorium in Vermont about 15 years ago. He had recently returned to stand up after a brief absence, and apologized to the audience for having to use notes while he performed. Of course, twenty minutes in, the notes were discarded and he was riffing like the ol’ George of old. Great memories.
However, THE most depressing celebrity death for me would almost certainly be Mr. Jerry Garcia.
My most depressing celebrity deaths were Steve Irwin (I watched the Crocodile Hunter religiously), George Carlin, Jim Henson, and Mark Gruenwald. I’m sure I’d have mourned over Bruce Lee if I were alive, and I have since gotten into Bill Hicks years after his death and I miss the dude now.
i just finished watching the 2nd episode of the new doctor who
its so damn good matt smith and karen gilan are terrific
That was good stuff. I’m very impressed with the first two episodes of this series. And next week: Winston Churchill and the Daleks!
You got my attention!
“A masterful job of F**king us!” Beneath the Alex Toth designs who would thought B+R would have had such foul mouths?Kassey Casim is 70’s not 80’s!Great Scott!
God, I remember seeing that in the store as a kid. I can’t remember if I ever bought it since I’ve always been partial to Peter Pan PB.
Ya’know what I was thinking, WTF is Lex so angry about he has a freakin CASTLE!
Hey Jose, I picked up the Great 10 issues 1 thru 6 pretty much on awhim….well that and there was’nt to much else out that I wanted. Anyway, will u and E be having any discussions about this series or did I miss an episode where y’all already taked about it. I found it a bit wordy, which I don’t usually care for, but overall a pretty good read. I.M.? VG17? Anyone else out there checing out the Greeat10?
I’ve been picking it up since I like the idea behind the Great Ten and I like McDaniels art(although, as stylized as it is, he’s not a perfect match for every book), but I was going to wait to read it until every issue had come out. I know that’s a gamble, but I’m behind on so much of my other reading.
I hear ya. I got a whole longbox full of comics I haven’t even read yet. My OCD won’t allow me to until I complete the run.
Just buy trades
Yeah, McDaniels has always been sorta hit and miss for me as well. I thought his work here was a good match, though! I can’t wait to pick up the next four issues! I do have a concern that this series will fall into obscurity. The Great 10 has been, well………Great!!!(no offense to Tony the Tiger)
I haven’t, aside from Morrison’s writing the characters. Although I do like August General great visual
Conceptually I’m rather partial to Mother Of Champions.
She is the best character overall in concept (Goddamn her doctor bills must be a mutha fucka) August is just visually amazing
Hey J., u think u could do a Tony Daniel rant on the blog or in the videos, it’s been a really long time since I have seen or read one, thankx 😛
Jose pretty much said all that could be said in the celebrated Battle for the Cowl rants. Anything more would be needlessly adding to a classic, just like The Godfather III.
He he. You are so right Morlock. Fuck, that is a brilliant observation. 🙂 🙂
Well, once again, it was just me 😦
I just wanted to say to everyone, and I know I talk about this a lot and I’m sorry if its annoying but I wanted to say that I beat Heavy Rain (ps3 game) and I wanna say to all of you tired of reading bullshit bendis comics or watching crap movie remakes (clash of the titans etc) this is what you need. I swear, this is, unquestionably the greatest game I ever played. Damn. The writing/directing/development is unbelievably good. Its the perfect escape for anyone who loves a crime, noir game that’s realistic, challenging, creepy, sexy, and fun.
Lol, I’ll try to stop talking about it so much (since I do a lot) but I just wanted to say yeah if anyone wondered about that game – let me say first hand its revolutionary.
That is all.
Not at all Mike, hell its what makes you stand out.
One of the things I’m trying too figure out now is how to incorporate each of the CCW Nation into characters for my cartoons, since I have no idea what you guys look like I’m gonna make you all into anthropormorphic characters (animals,food products etc..so I study closely the traits of the members here for later use.
I’m think you could be a Wii or some sort of handheld game
Haha that’s gonna be awesome 🙂 can’t wait to see the cartoons
Dude, no need to apologize for talking too much. That’s what this open thread is for. 🙂
My friend is supposed to let me borrow Heavy Rain today. I really can’t wait to play it.
Its so great. I am so impressed, yet stunned that a game could be everything I ever wanted. The crime in it, the emotions, I’ve never taken a game so seriously. A lot of my friends are all like “oh its cheesy” or “boring” but I really feel they just don’t emotionally invest themselves in it the right way. I know you’ll see the magic of it Jose 🙂
For me comics were always the best escape from everyday annoyances, but this game really reached a level of something higher. Its a shame there’s only one add-on for it 😦
Nope your a Xbox
You guys are going to convince me to buy a new gaming system. I don’t know if it will be an 360 or a PS3, but I’m really starting to miss playing new games that don’t involve collecting coins or Italian plumbers. I really need to play Arkham Asylum and I might check out this Heavy Rain.
Well, PS3’s are only $299 now and can also play blu rays. Plus if you get a PS3 I can add you to my friend list. 🙂
Join us…join us…
Freakin’ video game nerds.
Lmao..ok ya’ll messing up my drawing time
Boy am I happy I’m an only child. If I had a brother or sister post some shit like that featuring me, I think I’d have to kill them.
I don’t know what’s the best part of that; his hitting himself in the head with a shoe, getting under his blanket to take his clothes off, or what appears to be a half hearted attempt to shove the brush up his ass. What a freak!
DO NOT lump WoW players in with other gamers. Even we hate them
Sorta a Starwars fanboy vs Trekkies? Lol
I love when one group of nerds makes fun of another. It’s like me wearing Spock ears making fun of some kid dressed up like Harry Potter. “THAT KID IS SO DUMB!”
Team Edward vs Team Jacob
Lmao..ok I’m really fallen behind on my work
OMG, I laughed so hard I almost crapped my pants. What was that kid trying to do with that remote at 1:15?
You should watch the next video where he climbs a tree in shame. His brother asks him the same question.
You just have to watch all of this kids videos. there is one where he joins his brothers team online and then just keeps killing him. It’s my favorite.
Stop betraying me! I will eat your firstborn child!
Yeah I wanna play Arkham Asylum too. Its been out for almost a year but I know I will soon. I had to finish Heavy Rain before I could even turn off my PS3. It was just so addicting. really its like a Brubaker comic. So much crime and sex and violence and yet so clever twists and turns in the plot.
This is my favorite video of all time. I must have watched this 50 times in a row when I first saw it.
And then he grew up to be the founder and CEO of the Anti Puppet League Inc. The End.
50 times in a row, huh? You may want to speak to someone. Just saying.
Who doesn’t find a kid who’s so scared of a puppet show that he feels the need to repeatedly hit himself in the head with a stool entertaining? If I was looking to have kids right now, I’d adopt that little freak just so I could sit and watch him flip out over things.
I couldn’t tell if he was scared or excited or maybe a mixture of both…between this and the WOW kid, I’m noticing a phenomena of extreme emotions causing these people to hit themselves with things…
That’s one of the reasons I looked over every detail of that clip like it was the Zapruder film. It’s hard to tell what his reaction truly was. I also want to know why the kid next to him let him pound on his head, where this takes place, and what year it’s from.
I wonder if this behind the scenes turmoil will lead to any changes at Marvel.
I doubt it. I don’t think they’re in a position to force Perlmutter out. Granted, I know next to nothing about this, but it seems the gist of the article is that he could become a bit of a thorn in the side of Bob Iger, hence the comparison to Weinstein. I think Perlmutter’s just looking out for his own, not letting the big guys come in and push him around just because they’re a large corporation and have their own way of doing things. Let Disney be Disney. And Disney needs to let Marvel be Marvel.
I thought it was interesting that they cited a quote saying Iger’s acquisition of Marvel (or at least the price he paid) would be viewed as his first major mistake. I don’t think that’s going to be the case.
Did anyone buy Turf #1 last Wednesday? After reading this bit in an interview with the writer(Jonathan Ross) and artist(Tommy Lee Edwards)…
The pair declined an offer from Marvel, the Disney-owned comic conglomerate, to publish Turf, choosing to work instead with Image, the only major independent comic publisher. “Marvel would have doubled the first print run,” Edwards says, “but with them it’s all commercially driven, whereas the guys at Image are just so into it.”
…I want to buy it just to support guys who would turn down Marvel as a matter of principles.
I have a copy but I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. I applaud the decision to publish with Image. Plus, who knows if the title would have remained entirely creator-owned had they gone with Marvel…
I was talked into buying this and I’m glad I did. There’s a lot of information in the first book, it’s not one you can flip through and get everything, you need to be able to sit down and read it, which I like.
That’s a nice selling point for me, as well. I like to get my money’s worth, I like to spend at least twenty minutes reading something if I’ve paid three or four bucks for it, as opposed to a twenty-two page book so filled with splash pages it’s actually sixteen pages dotted with short, monosyllabic sentences. I’m looking at you, Jeph Loeb.
It will probably take you AT LEAST 20 minutes to read Turf #1.
Yeah, I went down to the shop and picked it up as well after some talk about it on the ‘who’s getting what’ last week. Once I heard it was apparently set in the 1920s I was sold; I’m a sucker for an it flapper dolled up to a tee with gams from here to sunday, so I forked over some clams. Still haven’t read it yet though.
What’s with everyone on here buying this but but not reading it yet? Get on that!
I NEVER LEARNED TO READ!!!
I never learned to read.
We reviewed it today during our taping.
Did Elliott wear pants?
No pants. But he did wear some nuthugger running shorts. It’s a step in the right direction as far as I’m concerned.
WHOA!Looks like E made you the man of the conversation! 🙂 (as long as you wore pants)
I think our tapings turned out really good today. I was really happy with them. Be warned though: I do rip on Geoff Johns and Blackest Night #8. I know how much people HATE when I rip on DC BUT it does happen in the first video of our new segments. 🙂
If a good ripping into is deserved than fuck whoever it’s aimed at. Johns had a chance to do something special, he had a good start, then used a lot of comic book loop holes at the end, that in ways destroyed the event as whole, now it will be looked at as just another marketing ploy event with a ridiculous story attached to it. He was so close too.
You don’t rip enough on DC. Next time I wanna see you brick right on a cover of a Johns book.
Fuck it! Rip away, good sir.
I’m happy you took on Johns. He’s fucked up DC’s history enough and people just love him too much to really care. At least the CCW nation stands against the evils of this.
By the sounds of it, you will all be pleased by my rant. 🙂
I just watched the new video and I though you were pretty fair. The story did bloat about half- to three-quarters of the way through and sagged from there on out. Bloated and sagged its way to a fairly benign “resolution”…it would be nice to see a lasting impact from one of these events as opposed to just a feel-good ending which resurrects some characters so recently departed the story negates events of its own earlier chapters. And do we have to have a new Lantern Corps every five seconds? Deaths, new teams, secret masterminds, resurrections….these things become tired cliches when they happen every three pages.
One day, Jose…E is gonna so kick your @$$ 🙂
Nice, I will be looking forward to what you guys have to say.
Pants or no pants.
Sans pants or no sans pants?
Sorry, I thought Tom had asked the question too. Damn declarative sentences! I was making it three. Questions have to be asked in odd numbers!… ?
Declarative sentences FTW!!!
Is this a declarative sentence? … FAIL!
No, it was a statement! FAIL FAIL!
I gonna have to challenge that ruling. The initial FAIL was achieved before the issuance of alleged ultimate FAIL. No question as to the character of the overall comment was raised; thus the initial FAIL should stand. While we should agree that “FAIL!” is in fact a declarative statement again this was not in question; the later FAIL FAIL is not applicable.
And if you issue a defending FAIL FAIL I will see you in court!
British or American court? Because if it’s American court I will see you there. Our judicial system is quite shite so I will be sure to win.
Then I guess I’m gonna have to go with British court.
Bullocks to that then. In my heart of hearts I know I was right in using “FAIL FAIL”. 😛
Email from my buddy Rich:
“Just saw clash of the titans in 3D. It was just like watching someone play a video game. God of war on playstation actually. Rushed story, great affects, different levels almost, action packed.”
I saw the non-3D version and I thought it was decent. I actually did enjoyed myself…but not in THAT way you pervs.
Didn’t enjoy yourself “that way”? Lemme guess. You played the popcorn gag with the person seated next to you but it was Bendis. Everyone knows Bendis is “the king of blue balls”.
(let’s see Marvel put that blurb on the cover of the next Powers tpb)
You win all of the internets today for that comment!!! 🙂
I pray that the jack-off Bendis jokes never come to an end on this blog.
I hope that they just keep coming and coming, hard and fast.
To be fair, I wish Bendis’ jokes were never found here anymore. ‘Cause we all know that it will only happen after Bendis puts his pen away forever, and that would be awesome!
I’ll drink to that my good man.
Oh boy just you wait and see
I saw Clash yesterday and enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Even though “Andromeda” was supposed to be the best looking chick in Greece, I fell in love with Io(Gemma Arterton). From what I understand, Andromeda had a bigger part in the original movie.
Ever watch Kevin Smith discussing what happened with his proposed Superman script? It’s pretty entertaining.
Love that vid. The whole part about going to Jon Peter’s mansion is hilarous.
My favorite was the thing he said about the 3 things he couldn’t put in the movie:
1.”I don’t want to see him in the suit”
2.”I don’t want to see him fly.”
3.”He’s got to fight a giant spider in the 3rd act.”
what the hell kind of screwed up superman movie would that have turned out to be.
And with Nicholas Cage in the role? Could have been the greatest disaster in cinematic history. Especially if they had given him the Super Mullet.
and Tim Burton directing him adds to the evil formula. If Burton directed it you know Helena Bonham Carter would have to be in the movie somewhere, probably Lois Lane. *cringe*
I love HBC, but I’m with you. Lois Lane would have had a tangled mess of updo hair, shadows under her eyes, and spiderweb pantyhose.
My favorite part was when Peters said he wanted to cast Sean Penn as Superman, and Smith is like, “Spicoli?”
“That’s what it’s about. We gotta sell some toys from this movie.” This is a good explanation on why so many genre films are terrible. Great clip.
I love that vid. As much shit as Kevin Smith often gets, I could listen to him talk all day.
Jon Peters and the millions like him in Hollywood are why I get nervous every time a new movie based on an existing franchise is made. Part of me hopes there are no longer any movies based on comics or 1980’s toylines since they usually shit on what I loved in the first place. It may not be as extreme as Jon Peters, but when I hear interviews with admitted superhero haters(Warren Ellis, Axel Alonso) or those who didn’t get into Marvel until they realized they could make money off of them(JoeyQ, Mark Millar), I realize why I hate practically everything that comes out from Marvel these days. I hate when people that are put in charge of things refuse to anything to learn about the franchise they’re working with either due to arrogance or laziness.
Hey Jose, did you hear Konami is teasing about a new Silent Hill release?
They are not teasing. There is going to be a new Silent Hill release for sure. And the word is that it is a sequel to or a re-imagining of Silent Hill 2!!! This new does not sit well with me at all.
One of the best video games of all time and they are going to fuck with it?! I read about this a couple of days ago and I can not tell you how much this pisses me off.
Did Geoff Johns take over for the silent hill franchise? 😉
He he. No shit, right?
I just started playing Heavy Rain earlier today. I am very impressed so far.
Now that’s good writing. The directing is really good for a video game too. I am surprised actually. Games usually don’t have such depth in their camera angles and all that.
Once that slow intro passes the game really picks up man. You won’t wanna stop until your done 🙂
Over 300 comments!!! You guys are fucking great!
That’s what she said.
and or sploosh =)
FX has been doing some great shows lately
If I ever meet a woman who uses the term “Sploosh” in that manner I will ask her to marry me right then and there.
and you would be right to do so
i need to get the dvds and they are super cheap too
Hey did you guys hear that Stan Lee is writing and/producing an anime in Japan. It’s called Heroman and it’s getting great reviews. Haven’t scene it yet myself so can’t say if its good or not. Apparently though he put a cameo of himself in the first episode.
Any relation to the manga he co-created called Ultimo?
Stan Lee is doing manga? Wow.
No its based off a different manga he wrote.
The wikipedia page has this on it:
“The manga series, written by Stan Lee and illustrated by Tamon Ōta began publication in Square-Enix’s Monthly Shonen Gangan from August 12, 2009.
The anime series, produced by Bones, Pow! Entertainment and Wowmax Media began airing on TV Tokyo and related stations from April 1, 2010. It is also being streamed on Crunchyroll. The series’ music is composed by “METALCHICKS” and “MUSIC HEROES”. The opening theme is “Roulette” performed by Tetsuya of L’Arc-en-Ciel and the ending theme is “CALLING” performed by FLOW.”
Haven’t heard of it, but it’s gotta be better than Stripperella
As much controversy as there is when it comes to the question as to how much Jack Kirby actually helped Stan Lee in the creation of the Marvel Universe, I don’t believe Stan Lee is doing anything for all this crap that keeps coming out except for plastering his name on it & collecting a paycheck. Reality shows, cable cartoons, Archie Comics, Boom Comics, Christmas childrens book(even though he’s Jewish), DTV animated movies, etc. Why can’t he just go away?
I’ve always thought Jack got a little less credit than he deserved and Stan got a little bit more.
Alright I watched the first episode of the new Doctor Who, I didn’t know what to think going into it, but I really liked it, I found it very new viewer friendly. This Doctor Who is really likable, I glad I was nudged into watching it by everybody, but I feel like I’m behind since I just started watching it. What are some need to know things about Doctor Who?
Who’s the doctor?
Hey tom where did you find the episodes cause I tried procuring them from the darkside but I couldn’t find any on there.
I have been to the darkside and back. I was able to get them from BT Junkie.
well like anything comic culture and geeky the doctor is all over the net geek stuff ir probably 2nd to porn on the interwebs
you really dont have to know anything that new series isnt giving you
the doctor is from a race called the timelords from the planet galifrey
he is over 900 years old
this is the 11th actor regenrtion of the doctor
he is the last of his kind thanks to the last great time war which took place off screen before the start of the relanch in 2005
there will be a character coming up named river song that has a history with the doctor from the last series but i think she is a complete mary sue anyway the gimmick was that their personal timelines werent in sync he never met here before and she had known him for years the show runner steven moffat created her and wrote the 2 part episode she was in so i expect to see a lot of her cheesy mary sue self
otherwise everything is fresh and new a very new viewr friendly
hope that help
Thanks for this, kuru. But what is a “complete mary sue”? I’m not familiar with this euphemism.
Ya, I know I can get it anywhere but since there is so much info I figured someone could give me the short version, so thank you Kurumais, this is what I was looking for.
I’m watching the Confidential show for the first episode. It’s like a making-of for those who may be unfamiliar with the series. I’m really starting to get into it. Brilliant.
the worst movie ever made? you decide
never heard of it
Weird that they’re giving the movie so much attention. How is it different any the thousands of other amateur movies out there?
The worst movie I’ve seen, aside from the B grade type of films that you’d find on MST3K, would probably be Hudson Hawk. It had Bruce Willis in it. That was such an awful movie.
Hudson Hawk is definitely an infamously bad movie. Along with Howard the Duck, Heaven’s Gate, and of course Plan 9 From Outer Space. I think Phantom Menace almost belongs on the same list.
I actually liked Phantom Menace the most out of all the prequels, which isn’t saying very much since they all sucked. And good call on Howard The Duck.
I also hated the movie version of Bonfire Of The Vanities. That was pretty bad.
Yes, Bonfire of the Vanities definitely fits my list. An infamous flop.
I couldn’t help but take a jab at Phantom Menace, but it belongs in a different category. Maybe the biggest letdown category, along with the last two Matrix movies.
Don’t forget Sharon Stone in Sliver, craptastic
Yes, but…erm, useful in other ways.
wash on, wash off
I usually pride myself on seeing the worst of the worst out there, but I never never heard of this film at all.
And there is more to being a classic bad movie then bad acting and special effects. You need total conviction in what you are doing..
To make a classic bad movie, you have to truly believe your making a good movie.
Syfy channel learned this a long time ago.
I’m not sure SyFy Channel really thinks they’re producing good movies…but I appreciate the commitment factor of which you speak.
two words: Ice Spiders
Sigh…where have you gone Ami Dolenz?
I work in Entomology and there is nothing we like more than Insect and Arthropod related horror movies. 🙂
That’s actually pretty cool. Did you ever see the Masters of Horror episode “Sick Girl” starring Angela Bettis and directed by Lucky McKee?
No, I haven’t seen this one but I’m definitely gonna check it out. maybe watch it tonight or tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestion.
I can kinda relate to this one, I’ve played the “hunt the insect down” game before. We’ve had a tarantula escape a time or two and had to track it down on our floor. It was harmless though, just pretty big and scary looking.
I wasn’t a big fan of “May” and I find Angela Bettis really disturbing to watch(she’s like an inbred version of Holly Hunter), but I watched this on On Demand when I heard Misty Mundae was going to be in it. I just can’t remember if I liked it or not. I found most of the Master Of Horror episodes I saw to be extremely disappointing.
I am a really big fan of Angela Bettis and completely loved May. I saw her at a convertion a few years ago and she was one of the nicest, most sincere people I have ever met in my entire life.
I’m really depressed that I’m taking Richard Roeper’s position on “May”. When he reviewed it years ago, he hated it and Ebert loved it.
You can take Bettis and I’ll take Judy Greer.
I liked this movie when I first saw it.. it’s one of my favorite ‘bug’ movies, Ice Spiders is also up on my list.
My favorite scifi channel movies in no particular order are: SS doomtrooper, Sabertooth, Alien Lockdown and the of course Mega-Snake.
because how can you not like mega-snake 🙂
How can you not like a mega-shark…and a giant octopus…totally mega-fighting?
Mega Piranha could take them both =)
ha ha I like this one, I’ve seen it a couple of times. Yeah, for real how can you not like it, it’s like the perfect formula:
Mega shark + giant octopus x Mega / low budget = awesome
I’m waiting for finance to produce the new Megatyrannoraptosharktopus film.
try and say that sentance in one breath I dare ya
Is that Debbie Gibson?????
Heh…the untalented Howard brother love that guy
me too one of my favorite character actors always fun to see him in a flick
The Wraith with him and Charle Sheen is a favorite
Clint Howard is awesome.
Haven’t seen him in any movie lately last time I remeber him in a flick was Austin Powers
I always liked his little turn in Apollo 13 as Sy Liebergot. I love movies about the space program. The Right Stuff is another great film anyone who hasn’t seen it should check out.
Admittedly, I might be giving to much credit to SyFy for quality, but they make up for it in shear determination, bringing viewers movies they think we want to see.
Emphasis on think we want to see.
I’ve said it before BSG was a fluke for SyFy
I definitely agree. Some people love Stargate, but I never got into it. Caprica shows promise, but I’ve only watched the pilot and the first couple shows…doesn’t seem like much is going on. Although I’m now a great fan of Alessandra Torresani!
Btw, Deemar…check out my banner on LittleKingdom…I added some colors!
The last thing I really enjoyed from SyFy was “The Lost Room, and that was like 3 years ago.
Stargate was flawed from the beginning, it’s filmed in Canada! no offense to my Canadian brethen, but jeez louise every planet on that show looked like Portland, Oregon.
Heading there now R
Portland Oregon is in the USA 😛
Trailer Park Boys is filmed in Nova Scotia yet its still fucking brilliant eh!
Yeah I know, Oregon looks like Canada all trees and how every time a movie is filmed in Canada the city is supposed to be Seattle or Portland
Or in the case of Blues Brothers 2000, Chicago.
i actually kind of liked frankenfish i think it worked as weird jaws rip off but probably more because kd aubert was in it
I doubt this is the worst movie ever made. I also don’t think it’s Troll 2 either. It’s After Last Season.
I traveled about 50 minute away just to see this movie due to morbid curiosity. I live in the suburbs outside Chicago but for some reason this “film”, which was playing in only 1 theater in Illinois, was in Aurora(at least an hour in the opposite direction of Chicago). I’ve never walked out of a movie before, but I literally had to force myself to stay through this just because I realized it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Supposedly, the company that released the movie told the theaters to just burn their copies since they didn’t want to waste the money it would take to ship the movie back.
I just re-watched The Karate Kid on my free Starz preview. It said in the closing credits that the name “Karate Kid” was used with permission from DC Comics. Was there a character called that? I could google it but I figure someone on here might know.
yup 2 actually from the legion superheroes the original had a very short lived series in the 70s what was his power you ask ? he knew SUPER karate. he died and was replaced for while by what i thought was a more interesting character who carried on his name but the legion has been rebooted so many times the original version is back one of the many wikis will give you the whole story
Yeah, he been around for awhile.
I love the Karate Kid, the remake looks shitatious. Once again remaking a movie that is awesome just as it is.
CCW Nation: Can we get this thread to 400?
I ain’t got nothing else better too do
I’m here to chew bubblegum and makes posts.
and I’m all outta bubblegum
I was reading an old Swamp Thing today and there is a add on the back for the sequel to this movie. Before that I hadn’t thought about these movie in years, now 2 times in 1 day.
I really liked both of them. The second one had some pretty cool stuff in it. I believe it is a very underrated movie.
Can’t go wrong with George Carlin and time travel in a movie. I always remember them as silly fun, nothing wrong with that.
I heard that originally the title to the sequel was going to be “Bill and Ted Go to Hell” but they changed it cuz some newspapers in the south wouldn’t run ads with that title.I’m not sure if that’s true or not.
That was the original tile. You are correct.
I really enjoyed both movies, but I do remember seeing Keanu Reeves and thinking ‘that dude is the worst actor ever, he will never make it big!’ Boy, was I wrong on that one. I wonder what ever happened to Alex Winter?
I actually just watched Bill & Ted for the very first time a couple months ago. I didn’t get what the fuss was about. It was all pretty silly, and not in a good way like an episode of the 60s Batman.
I saw both movies in the theater when I was younger and I think that explains a lot of fondness I have for them. I grew up with them. I don’t think anyone watching those movies today would feel the same.
I hear ya. I still love The Last Starfighter. I made my friend watch it recently. He had never seen it as a kid. So he watched it and thought it was the dumbest thing ever.
Damn! I would have loved to have seen both Bill & Teds and The Last Starfighter in the theater as a kid. As many movies as my parents took me to as a kid, I didn’t see any of those until after them came to video.
You got a problem with STATION!!!!?
Except for his role in “Parenthood”, “Ted” was probably the most natural Keanu has ever been on screen. I hear they still might do a third movie. “Bill” reminds me of Tom Hanks’ costar in Bosom Buddies; he didn’t have the career that his onscreen best friend did.

That was great. I loved that He-Man cartoon on the Cartoon Network in the early 2000’s. That was the best thing on tv at the time. I was beyond pissed when it got canceled.
This may show my age or my lack of taste, but I’ll still take the cheesy Filmation Masters Of The Universe over the cartoon from 2002. The 2002 show wasn’t bad, but He-Man had no personality, he was a glorified sidekick on his own show, and there was a little too much of an Americanized anime feel to it. Even though, when compared to Transformers & G.I. Joe, MOTU is considered “gay”(not my words; not that there’s anything wrong with it) and uncool, it will always be one of my favorite 80’s franchises. I’m dressed up as She-Ra as I type this very post. 8)
Couldn’t have said it better myself. I was a hugh MOTU fan as a kid. We even had the Eternia playset, which I considered the Holy Grail of MOTU toys. It had a monorail which did figure eights, encircling Castle Grayskull, some weird Lion Castle with arms that grabbed, and a prison Snake Mountain. Ahh, the memories. Does anyone else know that of which I speak?
I had grown out of MOTU by the time the Eternia playset had come out(although I have no excuse for buying the current MOTU classics toys LOL!), but from what I hear, it goes for a pretty penny, in most conditions, on Ebay. The only playsets I had were Castle Grayskull, Snake Mountain, and The Horde Fright Zone.
There was a new He-man cartoon? youtube search a must
Total aside: HEY Deemar, what’s up, man? Nice to catch you on the boards at the same time. Been drawing some more sweetness, I presume. Did you see my new avatar? Courtesy of Deemar, everyone. Colored by some reprobate it’s best not to mention….
Who ever designed your avy is a GENUIS!
Dude in just the last three days I’ve finished up that Master Rice cartoon, another Red & Beans, designed Pobra and MikeF character designs, Marvel versions of R&B, a Frank Miller parody.
I’m gonna die on my drawing board
I…um…I found some really great new pics of Emma Watson.
But seriously, I’ve been doing some private commissions and working on coloring some of my own older work…I designed a nice sidebar for my blog, as well. What blog? Oh, the one you can find here: http://littlekingryan.wordpress.com. I colored the header as well, and I’m as pleased with it as any artist ever is with his own work. And the coloring continues on our secret project, of course. As well as some odds and ends which should find their way to this blog sometime in the near future.
I’m just trying to keep up, bro….
Checked the blog and nice.
Dude I hope you start submitting your stuff to some comic companies you are ready for the big boys.
i think i need to get a nice run of sequentials down first so i can prove I can tell a story….
wonder if E has any old scripts lying around….
Hell we could write something
Yes we could. Any Ideas? I don’t think this is quite the place for it, though. Could always email. I kind of wish CCW would set up a chat room so you could have that instantaneous feedback. Don’t know if E and J would be down with that, though….?
sending you a email
Hey D I just colored the CCW member character you made for me. Everyone can check it out here: http://littlekingryan.wordpress.com/2010/04/12/littlekingrhino/. Get yours today!

hope something comes of it
Okay, I just read Spider-Man: Fever and I hated it. I couldn’t tell what was supposed to be going on. The art was okay in that psychedelic way, but the story was just not doing it for me. A confusing mess. Giant spiders? WTF?
I got annoyed with it and I just started speedreading the rest of the way through. A complete surprise. I thought this would be right up my alley, but no…just…no. I may have to give it another go when I’m more sober and more patient.
I now know to avoid that book
But you don’t have to take my word for it…ba-dump-bump (Reading Rainbow music)
