Check out the latest Watchmen featurette here.  All I have to say is that 20th Century Fox has got to idiotic and moronic for wanting to halt a movie, that could quite possibly be a box office smasher and the biggest winner of 2009.  But no, they want to ruin Watchmen fans, comic book fans, and even the general theater-goer’s movie experience by delaying the release of the movie.  20th Century Fox MUST be stopped.  They don’t know it, but I’m giving them the middle finger right now…

Death to Red Shirts…

Posted in Television, TV Episodes on December 26, 2008 by Matt

I’m not a Star Trek fan at all, but I stumbled across this video and thought it was pretty funny.  What’s a “red shirt”, you ask?  It’s a character on the show, who wears a red shirt…and is sent down on missions with the main characters.  On these missions it is expected of these “red shirts” to die, in order to ensure the major characters safety.  I was first introduced to the concept of “red shirts” on the show Lost, where background characters drop like flies.  This video is a compilation of most, if not all, of the “red shirts” that die over the original series’ run.  Pretty ridiculous…

Three “red shirts” lose their lives in the span of 10 seconds on the show Lost…

[Spoilers if you haven’t watched Season 4 yet]

9…

Posted in Animation, Movies on December 26, 2008 by Matt

Here’s a pretty surreal/interesting animation short created by Shane Acker, it’s called 9.  It revolves around a rag doll that must fight a monster, which has been preying on and stealing the souls of his people.  It has gained a lot of recognition to the point where it will be made into a feature length CGI (resembling stop-animation) film, of the same name,which will again be directed by Acker.  The movie, which will be released on September 9th, 2009, will feature voices by: Elijah Wood, Chrisopher Plummer, Martin Landau, John C. Reilly, Crispin Glover, and Jennifer Connelly.  Check out the short film below, it has a runtime of 10 minutes and 35 seconds.

Lost Sneak Peek…

Posted in Television on December 16, 2008 by Matt

ABC has released a couple of sneak peek clips, in anticipation of the new season.  I wonder how the format of the episodes will be.  Will they consist of flashbacks/flashforwards?  Or are they going to do something new with the show?  All I know is that I can’t wait to watch the new episodes.  Season Five premiers on January 21st.

Clip #1 – Kate

Clip #2 – Jack and Ben

THE SPIRIT…

Posted in Comics, Movie Clips, Movies on December 15, 2008 by Matt

6 scenes from The Spirit have been posted online.  Is it just me, or does this movie look crappier and crappier every time they show some more footage from the movie. I think Frank Miller needs to stay away from the director’s chair, before he’s “gonna kill [us] all kinds of dead”.  Oh, by the way, I want 5 minutes and 1 second of my life back.
