As much as I wanted to see Monsters vs. Aliens in 3D this weekend, I optioned to stay at home instead. There is a ton of stuff online to keep me busy! Enjoy the rest of the weekend…

  • When you work as a writer for Marvel Studios, they own your soul for three years. In other Marvel news, Mephisto was named the new President of Production. (Film Drunk)
  • It is more or less official, the Veronica Mars movie ain’t happening. (Pop Wrap)
  • Every new film that James Cameron is planning with be made in 3D. What are the chances that he’ll go back and give Aliens the 3D treatment? Because that would be awesome. (Time)
  • The economy sucks, so how can we save money while still enjoying the movie experience? (Killer Film)
  • A few new clips from Pixar’s UP have found their way online! I can not wait to see Pixar’s first 3D feature. (Latino Review)
  • While I really enjoyed Friday’s episode of Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, the ending took a major misstep.  You can watch it at this link… (IMDB) Do you agree? Disagree?

Lost All New Episode

Tonight is an all new episode of the best show on television, Lost. Last week Sawyer was able to seamlessly integrate Jack, Kate, and Hurley into the Dharma Initiative, but things went awry when Sayid unexpectedly showed up and was captured as one of the Hostiles. To complicate matters further, the episode ended with Sayid meeting a young Benjamin Linus. Will Sayid take matters into his own hands and try to kill young Ben? I have no idea, but I’m excited to find out! The episode airs at 9pm on ABC.

Where the Wild Thing Are

USA Today got their hands on a bunch of new images from Where the Wild Things Are, the film adaptation of one of my favorite childhood books. The film is directed by Spike Jonze, and hits theaters on October 16th of this year. Click here to view the photos.

TV Flipped Column with PJ Flip

Did anyone else think that Friday nights episode of Dollhouse should have been the series premiere of the show?

All of the episodes before it just weren’t that good. It wasn’t a show that I had to see. It was just a show that I’d catch whenever on the internet, only watching because it starred Eliza Dushku. “Man on the Street”, was more the vision Whedon had for the show, while the other episodes were what Fox wanted. Fox should have just let Joss Whedon do what he wanted, because it’s much better. If you stopped watching the show after the first few episodes, start watching again with “Man on the Street” and forget the other episodes.

Whedon knows what he’s doing. Look how many stars on TV came from the Buffy Universe; Faith (Eliza Dushku) is on Dollhouse, Willow (Alyson Hannigan) is on How I met Your Mother, Angel (David Boreanez) is on Bones, Caleb (Nathan Fillion) is on Castle, Oz (Seth Green) created and voices Robot Chicken, he also is on Family Guy, Fred (Amy Acker) is on Dollhouse, Dawn (Michelle Trachtenberg) did a bunch of episodes on Gossip Girl, Spike (James Marsters) did a bunch of Smallville episodes, Cordelia (Charisma Carpentar) did some Greek episodes, Kendra (Bianca Lawson) has been on the last few episodes of The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Principle Wood (DB Woodside) went from principle to president on 24, even Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is returning to TV with a new show.

Speaking of Bones and Family Guy, I read of a crazy crossover on the shows over on ew’s website. Booth (Boreanez) has a medical scare and hallucinates that he’s in Quahog (where Family Guy takes place) and meets baby Stewie. That sounds great, but you know what would have been better? If Booth hallucinated himself saving Buffy from vampires and Buffy confused Booth for Angel.

Heroes, All New Episode

We knew that we would be getting some big changes on Heroes when co-exec producers Jesse Alexander and Jeph Loeb were fired, but at the time we didn’t know that it would include the return of Bryan Fuller, season one’s best writer. You see, he left the show at the end of season one to create my favorite recently canceled series, Pushing Daisies. He was also the mastermind behind Wonderfalls, an equally awesome show that was canceled before it had a chance to prove itself. While Fuller has some input on the last new episode, I believe it was only felt in the closing moments, which changed the direction of the current chapter.  Tonight marks Fuller’s first scripted episode, and he promised a return to the excitement of the first season; returning characters, a back to basics with the wonder of normal people having extraordinary powers, and a face to come with the danger.

What better way to give a face to the danger than to reveal the mysterious Rebel? Well, that is what tonight promises. After outing Nathan as having powers, the “Hunter” targets Rebel and sets in motion a plan to find him (or her) and capture them. I’m still pulling for Rebel to be Micah, the young boy who can talk to (and command) machines. What better power is suited to find and contact other heroes, and then lead them to safety? the episode airs tonight at 9pm on NBC.
