Sing Along With Mal And Doogie!

You may remember during the writers strike about how everyone’s favorite sci-fi writer Joss Whedon was working on a internet-only musical series, entitled Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog.

Starring Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and the adorable Felicia Day (good last name, that), the first trailer has hit the web, and I’ve got it for ya below. Enjoy!

4 New Posters For THE SPIRIT Showcase The Ladies

Proving Frank Miller is pushing his range for his adaptation of the Wil Eisner classic The Spirit, these 4 new posters showcase the femme fatales of the film…in Black, White and Red.

…Not at all a Sin City redux, OH NO!

*sigh*  I continue to remain pessimistic about this project, but the image of Scarlett Johannson in Cat Eye glasses kinda makes my man parts all gooey.  (The other ladies showcased are Eva Mendes as Sand Saref, Sarah Paulson as Dr. Ellen Dolan and Jaime King as Lorilei Rox). I’ll say this though.  Having seen a trailer for this flick with The Incredible Hulk last week, the general public doesn’t give a damn about this movie.  Even Hellboy II got more recognition.  You’ve got your work cut out for you, Lion’s Gate!

If you want higher-rez versions of these posters (and for them to talk to you as you scroll over them), check out Yahoo!Movies right now!

R.I.P. George Carlin

As I’d imagine you’ve heard, George Carlin passed yesterday evening at the age of 71. While I’m sure that many sites will eulogize the man far better than I, I figured I should write something on the site here, even if it’s brief.

I’m sad to say that in the case of Carlin, my introduction to him was not via his standup, but rather his appearance in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure as Rufus.  Once I did discover his standup, and later his books like Brain Droppings, my mind was blown.

A lot of people enjoy describing Carlin as like a deranged uncle, I like to look at him as the man who made vulgarity intelligent.  There will never be another comedian as risk taking as he, nor as envelope pushing, but in his death, may we remember one thing from his life.

He stayed true to himself and his beliefs until his last breath, and if more people in this would could do the same, the world would be a much better place for it.  Godspeed, George.

Starting a “Buzz” Early…HAR HAR!

Well, I guess it’s official, Seth Rogen is playing The Green Hornet.

Why do I say this? Well, the filler site for the flick (to be written by Rogen as well) went live today!

I still hold that this will be the most bizarre of Hollywood’s super hero flicks so far, but knowing that Seth wants Stephen Chow (Shaolin Soccer, Kung Fu Hustle) as Kato, I am slightly more excited for the project.

Random aside: is it strange to anyone else to see 2010 written out, and not as a gag or a far off idea?
