The Fitting In Room: New Wonder Woman

Forgive me, kids – when I saw that Wonder Woman had her costume updated, I went on a bender that has lasted this past week. I am here now – sober, conscious, and am no longer allowed back in Honduras. But that’s another story. From a New York Times article: The new look — with […]

Trisha’s Video of the Day: The Swingin’ Spider-Man

While I am not a total dance geek or nerd, I loved watching the ballroom dance competitions on my local PBS affiliate as a kid; Strictly Ballroom is one of my favorite movies as a result of this childhood fascination as well. The best part of watching the ballroom dance competitions were the exhibition dances […]

Trisha’s Link of the Day: Holy mix of parody and sex, Batman!

Back in May, the Internet was a-buzz with the release of the Batman XXX: A Porn Parody trailer. And while I’d normally link it here because I’m not a prude and I’m assuming you all are adults, I won’t because even if the version on the BoingBoing site is totally “safe for work,” I still […]

If you visit here at all regularly, you know that I’ve been following the development of Scott Pilgrim vs The World closely. It’s not hard to see why.

Git Off My Lawn: Cinematic Comic Capers

Back in my day, which was before Al Gore invented the internet, and possibly before Al Gore’s mommy invented Al Gore, comic books were fun-filled, light-hearted, simple creatures, with the titular hero fighting the Villain of the Month in brightly drawn panels and onomatopoeic sound effects and…  …uh, moving on.

Wallace Wells rules new Scott Pilgrim vs. The World clip

The MTV movie awards did more than just hand everything to New Moon and debut a new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows trailer. They also brought us this awesome clip from the upcoming Scott Pilgrim vs The World. This film continues to look better. Michael Cera is actually sort of a badass, while still […]
