The Amazing Spider-man

History Lesson: Spider-man was the first superhero I ever knew. Of course he had his amazing friends who I liked a lot and sometimes the X-Men who were interesting. But Spider-man was the central figure in my superhero world and even back then I knew the difference between the lead and the supporting players.

The Avengers

I love Joss Whedon. Here's the thing, he has been loved by a small percentage of the population for over a decade. He's an incredibly talented

Event Horizon

This picture just freaks me out! I had a number of interesting and fun contenders this week, but had to go with this one for sheer awesomeness. I'm not even really a Mission Impossible

good theory, executed poorly

a visual rant... I just saw these images again, and they are a great example of good theory, executed poorly:

Event Horizon

Picture of the week: Annnnnd we're back to the Avengers. Because this picture is hilarious and timely. Joss Whedon is renowned for his portrayal of women as strong, interesting figures

the darkness of heroes

Kel and I saw Captain America together and it ignited an interesting conversation about the darkness of heroes. Captain America first appeared in comics in 1941 and like Superman (who first appeared in 1938)

Iron Man

I'm not a huge Robert Downey Jr. fan. In fact, I kind of dislike him more than I like him. Or, I did. But I was actually surprised at how much I liked this movie, even after everyone said again and again how good it is. I still didn't expect to like it that much, because I generally don't like him.

Captain America

I know I'm in the minority of people who really like this movie. Ok, maybe not the minority because it opened to $65M but it's one of the few movies Kel and I disagreed on substantially so

the Comic Con phenomenon

Kel and I have talked about Comic Con in the scheme of a marketing plan a lot. The most difficult aspect, I think, is understanding the Comic Con audience - because most executives in Hollywood aren't geeks.

Iron Man 2

This was obviously a sequel that was rushed through production. And the disheartening thing is it doesn't seem liked execs paid attention to what really made Iron Man so successful. There's more action and less story. Which is a sign of a rushed script. And the idea that execs think people want more Iron Man than they want Tony Stark, which I don't think is the case.
