The first official trailer for Robert Rodriguez' adaptation of Frank Miller's Sin City.

Friday, December 24, 2004

I don't know if any of you will be interested in reading this, but if you are, here's a really great interview with Grant Morrison on the upcoming Superman book he's working on and on Superman in general.

Thursday, December 23, 2004

You don’t tug on Superman’s cape.
This is a guy who can thread a tank through the eye of a needle. He can see the weather in Beirut and he knows what air freshener you used in your house six months ago by the smell of your clothes. You don’t mess with this guy.
It bugs me to see even minor villains all being so patronizing to Superman. That’s just asking for it. I don’t care how arrogant you are, this is a guy you treat with respect, and you’d damn well better say his name in all caps while you’re at it. People who call him the ‘big boy scout,’ should probably understand that very few boy scouts have heat vision, super-speed and an unbeaten track record for making despots and psychotic geniuses kiss his fist. I strongly suspect most of the villain community says his name in hushed tones, if they say it at all.

Judas Priest have named their soon to be released album featuring the return of Rob Halford.
Angel of Retribution will hit stores all over the US on March 1.

Look forward to an AC/DC double DVD in April.

This idiot rendered me speechless by reaching for levels of thoughtlessness, insensitivity, and unadulterated ignorance I previously thought unattainable. If you were a fan of Dimebag, heavy metal, or even rock music in general (or even if just someone you care about was into any of those) you need to check it out.

Apprarently, Queen is about to go on tour.

Thursday, December 16, 2004

Doug says Sideways is worth seeing. I don't know if it's playing where you are, but if it is, feel free to take his word for it as I plan on doing.

Sunday, December 12, 2004

QUEEN guitarist Brian May- "We are all gutted to hear of the senseless and tragic death of Dimbag Darrell, who was shot by a 'fan' who climbed on the stage at a show of his new band, Damageplan. He was of course better known for his great playing in Pantera. Pantera were, I think, the first band that I and my son Jimmy both got equally excited about. It was Jimmy who first got me to see them. They were a great band, and Dimebag was an innovative and passionate player. Great musician. Terrible loss. My respects to him, to his family and friends. Also to those who were killed trying to save him and apprehend the gunman. RIP."

If you enjoyed the first poster for Batman Begins that debuted the other day, you might be interested to see the first international poster for the flick that debuted yesterday.
It's pretty rad.
We can all also look forward to seeing the second teaser trailer sometime next week.

The first trailer for Tim Burton's remake of Charlie & the Chocolate Factory.
Mr. Depp looks a little creepy in it at times, but I'm sure he gives a fantastic performance.

My Australian friend, Matt Pott, recently hipped me to this awesome bit of Astroboy merch.

Nice interview with Ryan Reynolds (aka Van Wilder) about the just released Blade : Trinity.

Holy crap, man!
I only need ONE MORE PERSON to sign up and complete one of the free trial offers, and I get my free iPod!
A lot of you signed up, but didn't complete one of the free offers, so if you're one of those people (or if you're a new person), I'd be very, very grateful if you would do so.
I wanted one of those iPods before just because they're cool and all, but now that I have no music whatsoever in my car after it got broken into Monday night, it'd be nice to have something to make my drives to school and work and around town a little less silent.

TVParty.com goes behind the scenes of Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. Enjoy!

Speaking of The Incredibles (as you may have seen me doing over in my journal), here's a great review of the flick.. which I have seen twice in the three days it's been out. The review does contain some spoilers though, so .. umm... beware, I guess, if you haven't seen it yet. I'll tell you they gave it a 9.3 out of 10.
You should probably just go ahead and leave and go see it right now.
I'll wait.

And since Christmas is right around the corner, I don't mind telling you that if you're looking for something to get me, look no further than The Incredibles Store at Amazon.com.

It's called Team America : World Police.
I'm already excited.
Go see it at a theater near you in October.

Coming even sooner though, is a film who's jump across the pond I've been anxiously anticipating for some time now.
That film is Shaun of the Dead, a twisted UK horror romantic zombie comedy which will finally see a US release on September 24.
The film boasts a soundtrack that featuers some of my favorite bands, as well as cameos in the film from members of Ash and Coldplay to name a few.
Watch the trailer here.

Keep August 7 open.
"The SuperFriends are Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman... and a host of characters who don't even deserve their own pamphlet, let alone a comic book. This collection of four color legends and heaps of racial stereotypes exist to battle the forces of evil in any way they can, usually by talking in a stoic voice and seeing the flaw in their master plan. Or by punching them in their goddamn face. That works too."

Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects, Apt Pupil, X-Men 1 & 2) has been named as the director to restart the Superman franchise for Warner Bros. He'll be bringing Mike Dougherty and Dan Harris along with him to write the script after the three worked so well together penning the second X-Men flick.
It's come to my attention that The WB has a new show based on "The Blue Collar Comedy Tour" called "Blue Collar TV". After hearing about this show I decided, in my infinite generosity, to help The WB by sending them my idea for a new name for the show that I think will really help bring in those key demographic numbers: Idiot TV. Doesn't that say it all so much more succinctly?

Over half of the songs on the album sound like they could be bonafide hit singles.
That's a lot more than I can say for a lot of albums.

When Doves Cry
"When Doves Cry" (by Prince)
How could you just leave me standing,
Alone in a world so cold?
Maybe you're just too demanding.
Maybe I'm just like my father--too bold.
Maybe you're just like my mother.
She's never satisfied.
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like,
When doves cry.

Have a listen to a 90 second clip from the new VAN HALEN song, It's About Time.

You want to talk about a movie looking amazing, have a look at the trailer for Immortel.

One time a guy handed me a picture of himself, and he said, "Here's a picture of me when I was younger." Every picture of you is of when you were younger. Here's a picture of me when I am older. You son of a bitch, how'd you pull that off? Let me see that camera... - Mitch Hedburg

I think the Burden Brothers are pretty badass as far as straight up rock bands go, and I think you may very well feel the same way after you watch this.

Speaking of rock bands, Robert "Mutt" Lange, producer of such quintissential rock albums as AC/DC's "Highway to Hell" and "Back in Black", Def Leppard's "Hysteria" and "Pyromania", and more, will be producing the next album by The Darkness.

I'd consider it a personal favor from you to me if you would go and read this article on Godzilla.
That sounds like I'm joking, but I'm honestly not.
It discusses the original version of the film that most people have never seen, that stands as one of the most fervent anti-nuclear films ever.

Two aerial antennas met on a roof, fell in love, and got married. The ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was brilliant.

which is more like a hallway in a hospital.

"It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n roll."

If you're here, chances are you know me.
Chances are also good you know I'm in a band.
We're called MAUXFAUX.
If you haven't heard us yet (or even if you have), I'm going to have to insist you check this out immediately.

It'd would certainly mean a lot to all of us in the band and me personally.
Have a look around at the pictures and what not, but most importantly, give our tunes a listen.
You can even legally download one of them.
Then take the poll to let us know which song you liked the best.
Then add that page to your favorites and check back often, as all information regarding the band will be available there.
Also, should you like what you hear, we're relying on you wonderful guys and girls to help us spread the word and get that link out there to as many people as is humanly possible.
Thank you in advance.

my best to you always,

How about a look at some screen grabs from the Uncut Japanese version of Kill Bill Vol. 1?

USA Today has news on some of the spceial features and goodies on the upcoming Star Wars Original Trilogy DVD Collection.

Alex Ross has done two poster mock-ups for a Superman feature film starring Tom Welling (of Smallville).
For the full story as well as a look at the pictures click here.

Mitsuteru Yokohama, the creator of Gigantor and Mighty Robo, has died at the age of 69 due to a fire at his home in Tokyo.

Richard Linklater is working on a follow-up to Waking Life called A Scanner Darkly.
I say follow-up only because this film too will be turning live-action footage into animated sequences.

Because no one demanded it, production is moving forward on Police Academy 9.

Speaking of sequels, Carrie-Anne Moss has signed on for Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible 3.

Details on the special edition DVD releases of Predator and The Bourne Identity (which will include a new beginning and ending).

The following is straight from Dark Horizons:
Jurassic Park IV
For a long time we've heard talk about Spielberg's 'great idea' for the story of the fourth "Jurassic Park" movie that has gotten people exicted about the franchise. Well long time DH informer 'Undergear' finally has the scoop on what that idea might be:

"All these rumors about Jurassic Park 4 are false. They are retooling the script (out to big name doctors right now) But here's the worst part... All this talk about this "brilliant" idea, well... I cannot begin to tell you how bad his idea is...The government has trained dinosaurs to carry weapons and use them for battle purposes. I am not kidding!"

Tuesday, April 20, 2004

A great Rolling Stone article on The Burden Brothers.
A band which I endorse 100%.
You should too.
Or at least check them out.

I know Spike TV isn't too worried about any controversy stemming from things said on their new animated series This Just In.
How do I know they're not worried?
Because no one is watching it.
Someone has to watch it to get offended and start complaining.
That's just how these things work.
I happened across it last night, and I've got to say, it really wasn't that bad.
Maybe people should start watching it.
I guarantee if they do, someone will find something to complain about.. and fast.

Ever wonder what went on during the time when Palpatine trained Darth Vader?

I didn't get to see The Punisher this weekend, but I wanted to see it.
I did draw a quick sketch of the guy though for Shawn.
That has to count for something, right?
Well, hopefully, I'll see it at some point this week.
Here's the sketch.

(Shawn didn't ask for the sketch, I just know he likes The Punisher, and I hadn't seen him in a while, so I thought I'd draw him something.)

Saturday, April 17, 2004

ASH are going to be involved with Star Wars in some way!
Here's the details.

Eddie Izzard has been added to the cast of a new movie with an fairly impressive cast... not Sin City impressive, but it does share an actor or two with said film.

This is pretty funny.

Thursday, April 15, 2004

So what's Damon Albarn been up to?
The future of Blur, Gorillaz, and more.

Doug brought to my attention the fact that I had neglected to mention that "Weird" Al will be playing in our general area soon.
The exact date? April 24
The exact place? The Grand Casino Event Center
I just figured most of you had already made your plans to see him well in advance, and my telling you was unnecessary.
In case you hadn't though, now you know.

Maggie is an artist like you don't even want to know about.. because she's too good.
Go look.

Rodriguez has also let it be known that Frank Miller will be helping him direct the entire film, and Quentin Tarantino will also be co-directing certain scenes.

There's a chance you haven't seen this yet, so here's the trailer for Kill Bill Vol. 2.
It looks incredible.

Thursday, April 08, 2004

Yeardley Smith, the voice of Lisa Simpson, says The Simpsons feature film is still probably 5 years away.

Ron Perleman and Thomas Jane have confirmed there will be at least one sequel to both Hellboy and The Punisher... though neither will have much to do with the other.

Due to the script being leaked during the last week, the producers have decided to wait even longer before unveiling the new costume Christian Bale will be wearing in Batman Begins.

Star Wars : Episode III will hit theaters on May 19, 2005.

Heath Ledger may be the next James Bond.

John Woo has acquired the rights to Metroid, and plans on doing a big-budget feature film version for the summer of 2006.

Wednesday, April 07, 2004

I guess someone needs to congratulate Hong Kong, because they've built Robocop.. and probably doomed us all to a life lived in subservience to robot overlords.
C'mon, we all saw those Terminator flicks.. you know it's only a matter of time.

I know it's not Christmas, but this is simply too funny.
Wrong, but funny.
Very funny.
You have to have sound for it to be funny though.

There's a rumor making the rounds that Steve Buscemi may be playing The Joker should the new Batman flick merit a sequel.... which I'm sure it will.

Mothman lives!

The first pictures of the new Batmobile?

If I could only recommend one comic to a person, this would definitely be on the list of possible candidates: INVINCIBLE: Family Matters (Vol. 1)
You could waste $10 on a lot worse.
It's worth giving a try.
Actually, you can go here and check out the entire first issue...
then read the first issues of Grrl Scouts, The Clockmaker, and Powers.
Chances are you'll thank me.
And if you're bored and at work, even if you don't like the comics, at least it will have killed some time.

Also, I'd like to thank Tara and Edward for being the only two people I know of from this site to try to keep Home Movies on the air.
Edward's comments were especially well delivered.

Sunday, March 28, 2004

Please go here and help save Home Movies.
Some things are worth fighting for.. and The Wizard's Baker is one of them.

For those of you that are interested in hearing other people discuss Dawn of the Dead (and I'm sure there are a few of you out there), why not have a look at The Cinemarati Roundtable?

Comcast has bought cable network, TechTV for $300 million.
Comcast plans on merging it with it's video game channel, G4.
I enjoy both channels, so I'm not particularly happy to hear this as it means there'll be less video game stuff on G4, and less... tech on television in general.

You're Ulysses!
by James Joyce
Most people are convinced that you don't make any sense, but compared
to what else you could say, what you're saying now makes tons of sense. What people do
understand about you is your vulgarity, which has convinced people that you are at once
brilliant and repugnant. Meanwhile you are content to wander around aimlessly, taking in
the sights and sounds of the city. What you see is vast, almost limitless, and brings you
additional fame. When no one is looking, you dream of being a Greek folk hero.

VAN HALEN have finally made an announcement.. a vague announcement, but an announcement nonetheless.

You can check out 4 songs from the new Ben Kweller CD "On My Way" right here.
You can then buy the disc at the record store of your choice on April 6.

Monday, March 22, 2004

The official site for BATMAN BEGINS is now online.
There's nothing there yet, except for the new logo/emblem, but it does look pretty right on.

Speaking of superhero movies, rumor has it that Jake Gyllenhaal is Kevin Smith's first choice to play The Green Hornet.

Quite a bit of news on Sin City.

"Show of hands: who here misses the days of extended guitar solos, striped leotards, falsetto vocals and songs demanding, 'Get your hands off my woman'? Yeah, me too. THE DARKNESS is here to put that hickey back on your neck, fire up the Camaro and party down at the nearest parking lot like it's 1979. Is the band for real? Yes. Does it rock? Yes. Is it hard to get around the multiple-octave range that Justin Hawkins is ripping in every song? Well, a little, but the band is gaining speed here in the States after selling more than a million copies of 'Permission to Land' (Atlantic) in its native Britain. I'll take THE DARKNESS over those whiny emo bands any day. At least they're getting chicks." - Dave MF'ing Grohl

There are a number of CDs worth checking out coming Tuesday.
Here's my rundown (in no particular order):
The Vines - Winning Days
HIM - Greatest Hits
Guns n' Roses - Greatest Hits
Bring Them to Your Knees: A Tribute to Guns N' Roses
The Punisher - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Eagles of Death Metal - Peace, Love, and Death Metal
Pedro the Lion - Achilles' Heel
Snow Patrol - Final Straw
Sugarcult - Palm Trees & Power Lines
Gary Jules - Trading Snakeoil for Wolftickets
Weezer - Weezer (Blue Album) Special Edition

Also look for the first ever Weezer DVD, Video Capture Device.

This is a zombie I drew the other night after seeing Dawn of the Dead.

Sunday, March 21, 2004

Dawn of the Dead was really good.
That's my review.
Go see it.
That's my recommendation.

Friday, March 19, 2004

The world is pretty ridiculous these days in general.
Fountains of Wayne are involved in a bit of this ridiculosity.
For those of you who care, the song in question is one of my favorite FoW songs ever.

Also for those of you who are interested, MAUXFAUX (the band I'm in) has finished recording our first EP and are in the process of mixing it to a state of finished, face-melting rock excellence.
We should be done by the end of next week at the latest.
Exciting, yeh?
For those of you who have heard rough mixes of the tracks, I apologize, because they don't begin to do the finished versions justice.
Go ahead and remove your socks, because they're about to get rocked.
Look for "The Collapse EP" in the record collections of people with good taste very soon.
