DC Comics’ Hollywood Crisis: Our Unsolicited Advice

7 Comments | Published by Jennifer Vineyard on Monday, June 23, 2008 at 6:45 pm.



As the home of such icons as Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, you’d think DC Comics would rule the superhero universe. But no. In fact, rival Marvel Comics is kicking DC’s butt. How can this be?



Movies are where the real superhero action is these days, and Marvel, having scored major hits with the current “Iron Man” and “Hulk” films… Continue

Doctor Who - The Doctor's Daughter (spoilers)





I really enjoy listening to the BBC podcast commentaries for the episodes as they are different from the ones used on the DVDs. For "The Doctor's Daughter", David Tennant, Russell T. Davies, and Alice Troughton (who is one of only two people who have directed Doctor Who, Torchwood, AND Sarah Jane episodes) give a lot of good background info.



Tennant asked Davies for the reason why the Tardis didn't translate the Hath's language… Continue

Amazing Spider-Man: Brand New Day





I have completely drank that Kool-Aid at this point as I bought the first Brand New Day hardcover yesterday. Beyond having the first two arcs and the FCBD story in it, there were a couple of pleasant surprises.



First, Dan Slott's very first published Spidey story is in the book. It's a backup tale from a mid-90s Venom Special that shows one of the nights where the suit put itself on Pete while he was sleeping and went patrolling… Continue

The Orphanage (Spanish language gothic horror film)







Holly and I watched this last night and I wanted to give it a blog piece to be a booster for it. Not many movies affect the dreams I have the night after watching them, but this one sure did.

The script was by Sergio Sanchez and the film was… Continue

I will only list them once the first time they appear then they will be listed under reorders if I have to get them again. Big item this week is the first series of Heroes… Continue
