Interesting Bits V

Well, I'm back again...why do I hear Dwight Yokum in my head when I type this? I really dislike most country music. Que la stima.

Presently, I'm rereading Simon R Green's Nightside series again to review for Bitten by They aren't up yet, but Something From the Nightside and Angels of Light and Darkness are done and waiting to be posted. Trying to rip through the other 6 before Jan. 6 th when his new one comes out, Just Another Judgement Day (The Nightside, Book 9). Love this series, it combines John Constantine with Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere. I highly recommend checking them out if you never have. They're short books and the whole series paints an interesting larger picture.

Warner Brother's beginning its push for the Oscars. They took out an ad for what I consider the surest lock. Heath Ledger for Best Supporting Actor.

The others in the category are: Michael Shannon in Revolutionary Road, Philip Seymour Hoffman in Doubt, John Malkovich in Changeling, Ralph Fiennes in Duchess, John Malkovich and Brad Pitt in Burn After Reading and Robert Downey, Jr. in Tropic Thunder. I think their major disadvantage is that they're still breathing.

Will Smith and Stephen Spielburg after announcing last week that they plan to remake the brillant Korean film Oldboy say it will not be a remake of that, but of the graphic source manga by Nobuaki Minegishi and Garon Tsuchiya. Which...ummmm..if I'm not mistaken was the source material for Oldboy. Oh, and one more crucial difference is that their's will be called Old Boy. Wow. The differences are truly astounding....

Den of the Geek have updated their 84 Comic Books properties being made into movies with the addition of Deadpool. Apparently Ryan Reynolds is so bitichin in Wolverine: Origins as Wade Wilson, Merc of the week that they're already talking about a spinoff. Or would that be a spin-spinoff?

Also in really shitty film news, Lucas, Spielberg & Harrison Ford are talking about Indy V. Since people were stupid enough to go and see the heavy handed, too long & nonsensical Indy IV. Someone stop these people....please.

45 years of Doctor Who and BBC is releasing how the character was created and the rocky road it took to become the classic it is.

I just got news that I can start reviewing paranormal comics for BBB. Which pretty much opens up the entire Vertigo line from DC Comics. Woo Hoo!

That's it for now...Please go back to your regularly scheduled Feed Reader.
