Surprise, surprise…like every other Wii owner, I picked up Super Smash Bros Brawl yesterday. It’s pretty great so far, but I’d love to get some games going with ya’ll.

Here’s my friend’s code: 0731-4446-6149

HERE’S TO BATTLE!

Last Night’s Amazing Digital Short

Ever since the Lonely Island crew joined SNL back in ’05, the Digital Short has been, by far, the best part of the show. This time, they hit a little close to home…and hit a home run.

People of the internet, here’s “Hero Song”

Another Show About Nothing?

Ok, so the latest rumor being reported by The New York Post is that NBC is in talks with Jerry Seinfeld with regards to starting a new sitcom on the last-place peacock network.

According to the article, the show (which would premiere in June…sure seems fast) would take a page from Seinfeld co-creator Larry David’s HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm, and present Jerry living in NYC in an “exaggerated reality”.

Does this strike anyone as a good idea? I really enjoyed Seinfeld, and enjoy reruns/the dvds, but honestly the strength of the series was in the cynical writings of Larry David and the overall ensemble cast. I don’t recall anyone really loving the Jerry character, and if Bee Movie (plus the HORRIBLE “Bee Movie TV Juniors” which ran on NBC) was any indication, we’ve as a nation, fallen out of love with the observational comedian.

Let it die, Jerry. Enjoy your millions. Relax in that sunset.

CNN.com SAYS THEE NAY!

NBC and Jerry Seinfeld shot down a New York Post report Friday that the comic was in talks with the network about a new sitcom. The report, citing no sources, said Seinfeld would play himself in a New York series similar to “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

“There’s nothing to it,” said NBC spokeswoman Rebecca Marks.

Seinfeld’s spokeswoman, Elizabeth Clark Zoia, also said the story was completely false.

“We appreciate the enthusiasm, however,” she said.

*whew* Now, NBC, let’s move forward with some original ideas and not a shit-ton of reality programing, k? K.

A Tale Of 2 Iron Man Posters

Today Paramount unveiled the final Iron Man theatrical posters for both the US and International markets.  The part that’s bizarre is that they’re both very similar, yet have slight differences.

Here’s the US Poster First…

Then you have the international version…

Now, while both suffer from floating head syndrome, I overall find that the US poster has a far better layout.  What’s bizarre is why they chose the different layouts, and why certain elements aren’t in both…why does the US version have no helicopters? Why are the bodies more noticeable in the international version?  What does that say about our cultures?

Which do you like? Personally, I dig the design of the US one more, and look forward to it being a DVD cover.

Tick Tock…

Man, this blog is becoming more about comic movies than I anticipated. However, I’m sure we can all agree that this is a worthy post.

We’re officially one year away from the release of the movie adaptation of what is arguably the greatest graphic novel of all time, Watchmen.  To commemorate this, the director of the flick, Zach Synder, best known for the amazing 300, decided to post the first promotional images of the characters.  To put it simply (and to key a phrase from my good buddy Jami), the pants, they are crunchy.
