I guess the casting of the major roles for the new Superman flick is all set now. Kate Bosworth (Win a Date with Tad Hamilton, Beyond the Sea) will be Lois Lane, and Kevin Spacey (American Beauty, The Usual Suspects, Beyond the Sea) will be Lex Luthor.
Anyone else excited?

For anyone that has even a passing interest in the comic strips in your daily newspaper, webcomics, or just interesting commentary on things in general, I'd like to recommend you read this. It won't take you long, and you might learn something about something... or something.
Then feel free to go here and catch Gabe from Penny Arcade's take on the situation.

Well, I'm psyched. Katsuhiro Ôtomo (creator of AKIRA) has a new movie coming out. It's called Steamboy. Go watch the trailer.

Check out these amazing publicity photos from Episode III... unless you don't like Star Wars. If you don't like Star Wars, there's not much there for you.. and you're an idiot.

There may be a sequel to Shaun of the Dead. It may very well be called From Dusk til Shaun. Simon Pegg has said the only format he'll do said sequel in is comic book format. Apparently, Marvel and DC both have been in touch with him about this and comics in general.

This may be the first poster for the Natalie Portman starring adaptation of the Alan Moore masterpiece, V for Vendetta.'s Worst 10 Movies of 2004. A list that's worth reading if for no other reason than it features this quote : Saying that Van Helsing sucked is like saying Hitler wasn't fond of Jews.
That's hilarious.

I saw The Phantom of the Opera tonight. I liked it. I didn't care for parts of it. I'd give it a 67,845 on a scale of 1 to 100,000.

The last I read, the death toll from the tsunami/tidal waves/earthquakes was over 125,000.
I'm sure the number is even higher by now. Where's the 9/11-style public outpouring from the celebrities etc. urging us all to help these people? Where's their benefit CD and concert and whatever else?
I read somewhere that medicine and aid is being rushed "as fast as possible" to the victims/survivors, but that the ratio of people in need to medicine and supplies is so one sided the people trying to give the aid are left asking who to give it to.
Who should get it first?
Should they just form a line and hope they make it to the front of the queue before they die?
Where does the wisdom to make these kinds of decisions come from?
