Happy Holidays to all!
and to those who feel Christmas is being drowned out by secularism and want to keep things traditional, By All Means:
"Enjoy the Winter Solstice and Evergreen Worship"
(Whether you celebrate the traditional decorated evergreen tree inside your house from the Egyptian, Roman or Druid cultures)
Remember, Jesus was born in the month of Tishri (Late September/ early October).
So it's kind of a belated birthday. He won't mind at all. He was pretty chill.
On with the show.....
I just saw this 2nd "V for Vendetta" trailer. I know people think they went the wrong way with this, but the trailer looks amazing. I have to go see this to see if the Alan Moore curse is liftable. What do you think? (I love the dominos!!)
I just said something about this didn't I? I must have forgotten to knock on wood after. Well, it's my fault. Star Trek has to be buried for a decade and then unearthed. It really should learn to hibernate with dignity.
For the record, I love Shatner, he constantly survives and embraces "hasbeenery" like no one else. And "Boston Legal" is a very funny show. I'm soo glad he has an Emmy. No matter what he does "Star Trek", "TJ Hooker", "Rescue 911", "Boston Legal", his albumns "The Transformed Man", "Has Been" and especially "Free Enterprise" the indie movie where he plays himself with a passion for doing Julius Ceaser as a one man show in Rap verse, everything he does is funny!! Not always on purpose, but that's secondary! He is truly an original. Gotta love those wacky Canadians
Happy Chanukah KIRRRRK!!
"You dont need 'Deck the Halls' or 'Jingle Bell Rock'
cause you can spin the dradle with Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock (both jewish)"

I just worked as a stuntman on a film called "Honor", by David Worth, starring Jason Barry and Roddy Piper. TV actress Linda Park was also in the film. She was in the TV show "Enterprise" playing Hoshi Sato.
Have I got some gossip for you? Potentially, 'encouraging' gossip. I was reading on a few sites that the plan for the next Star Trek movie is to do it as a prequel with young Starfleet commanders. I don't know if that's true, or was true, but it's not anymore. The latest is that the new film is more of a sequel than anything else. SO WHATEVER YOU'VE BEEN READING OR REPORTING – FORGET IT. IT'S ALL CHANGED.
The current script – I ASSUME 'ONE' OF MANY - apparently has events set in what is called a "Mirror" Universe. It will enable Trek actors past and present to play roles, including William Shatner. Apparently Shatner was in talks to do a guest role on Enterprise, but it didn't work out. Why? Apparently he wanted a) more money b) would rather do Trek films. Solution? The ideas for the episode of the "Enterprise" episode he was going to do will now be incorporated into a movie. Yep, Captain kirk's back - SOMEHOW. The actress wasn't unsure of her involvement or her show's cast's involvement but said she "thinks" it'll be Shatner, Captain Picard and maybe Archer.
This one is a funny, but not uncommon problem in the superhero game. After all, if you wear your underwear on the outside, and all that jazz, things can become embarrassing. Burt Ward, 1960's Television's "Robin" also had this problem. You'd think they'd come up with a better answer then turning it into a "special effect."
Maybe a new tailor? A Codpiece?
Imagine you own a CGI company.
I'm talking to you at a party and I ask you what project you just worked on.
"Superman Returns: We did CGI work" you answer.
I'm impressed, so I say "Wow! you worked on Superman!! What did you do?
Make him fly? Help him lift a car? Use his heat vision?"
"No," you say, "I erased his crotch."
A UK tabloid claims Warner Bros. has ordered director Bryan Singer to digitally cover up the bulge in actor Brandon Routh's Superman briefs.
James Marsden (Richard White), Brandon Routh
(Clark Kent / Kal-El / Superman), Parker Posey
(Kitty Koslowski) and Kevin Spacey (Lex Luthor).

WHOOHOOOO! Madman is in my top ten,"Best Original Comics" list. I knew Rodriquez was a friend of Mike Allred (Madman's creator) and had the option for a Madman movie. So I have been waiting years to hear "GO!" on this colorful project. This movie would be everything that "SIN CITY" is not: visually, bright, vibrant and almost wholesome, yet on the verge of madness. This movie would be the Technicolor yin to SIN CITY's yang. Let's hope we get a movie about
"Frank Einstein, the Madman of Snap City!!"
Director Robert Rodriquez dropped in on DVDFanatic for a live web-chat to promote his newest release Sin City: Uncut, Extended, Unrated .....
I can't tell you how happy this news makes me. More films first, then TV! And not network or basic cable!
A good team:
Wolvie, Storm, Colossus, Icemen, Rogue and Kitty Pryde. That's my kind of XTeam!
The Brotherhood of Muntants? no. The Hellfire Club!! Why?
Just to put the name in the Movie? Poopy! Omega Red is supposed to be in there somewhere.
Again, Frazier looks awesome!!! I need to hear him talk. I need a real trailer!!
Here's Action Beast!!
And here's "refined thoughtful pause" Beast!
Collect them all!!
Good old Petey Rasputin. The real "man of steel". Here's hoping he has at least a slight Russian accent in X3.

Fox still hasn't officially canceled "Arrested Development," but if it does, other networks are interested in the show.
Both ABC and Showtime have had conversations with 20th Century Fox TV and indicated they're open to making a deal for new episodes of the critically beloved, Emmy-winning comedy from creator Mitch Hurwitz. No formal negotiations have taken place, and there are still numerous hurdles that might prevent such a move -- including the show's hefty pricetag.
