Holla! Tonight’s the night, my friends! The Season 9 finale for Smallville! This has been a solid season (okay, the Kandorians plot is hella boring. But it’s almost over! Rao willing.) and I’m psyched for what’s sure to be a stellar finale. How do I know?  Because it’s Smallville, suckas! EVERY finale is awesome. EVERY ONE. Even the crappy seasons! All the finales rule except, conversely, Season 8’s, which was in every other respect Smallville’s best season. That was…weird.

But! Season 9! Finale! Sure to be awesome! Here’s some scoop to wet your whistle. Continue reading

Updated! 2.5.10

It’s Recommends Day Wednesday ’round these parts, and I’m here to recommend a historic television event that will MELT YOUR FACES CLEAR OFF YOUR HEADS! Smallville: Absolute Justice, the 2-hour movie event, will air this Friday, 2.5.10, on The CW (8/7c). And holy lord, I cannot WAIT.

This movie isn’t just for established fanpersons of my favorite show—it’s for comic geeks everywhere. Smallville has employed DC Comic legend Geoff Johns to bring the Justice Society of America to Metropolis to shake things up for Clark, Oliver, Chloe & co. For non-nerds (what are you doing here?), the JSA was the precursor to the Justice League of America, of which Superman, Green Arrow, Batman & The Flash (to name a few) are a part. Johns is focusing on Hawkman, Stargirl, Doctor Fate and villain Icicle for this unprecedented television event, and we’ll also get our first look at Amanda Waller‘s Checkmate operation, a multi-episode arc going to the divine Pam Grier. And did I mention the superb Phil Morris is back as Martian Manhunter/John Jones? Smallville is bringing it this season, and OMG I’M SO EXCITED I MIGHT ACTUALLY EXPLODE!! Continue reading

Today is simply rife with news that I thought I’d never care about again and yet cannot seem to keep myself from reporting repeating!

Extra! Extra! A new vampire movie actually sounds interesting to me!

But before that…the SAG awards happened, apparently.

So…Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City) is attached to direct a Dracula: Year Zero flick about The Count’s transformation from Vlad the Impaler to Dracula. And Marla’s boyfriend Sam Worthington’s name is being bandied about! And all of a sudden I’m interested in vampires again! And then I remembered that I’m super pumped to watch Chan-wook Park’s sorta-vampire flick Thirst this week, and my life got all twisty-turny. Every time I think I’m out, they suck me back in.

I was planning on doing a Recommends Day Wednesday post today, but the internet is so aflutter with NEWS MADE ESPECIALLY FOR ME, I just had to share in my mirth.

So, I absolutely adore Maleficient from Sleeping Beauty.  I’m sort of COMPLETELY OBSESSED with her. She’s like the Alexis Carrington of Disney!

That’s me on the left, battling Harry Potter in an epic clash of magical good versus evil.

The Official Smallville Drinking Game!

Posted in Random Tidbits, Television News, Television Review with tags , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2010 by xymarla

Hey, it’s official if I say it’s official!  But official or no, I can guarantee that it is the BEST Smallville Drinking Game.

I'm gonna mess you up!

Mr. Marla and I invented this game many years ago, bumming a few rules here and there from other drinking games we’ve found, but mostly of our own creation. And we play it a lot. Like, A LOT. Okay, more like…all the time. Don’t judge us! It’s really fun!

So obviously some of these rules only apply to early seasons, because we re-watch the old DVDs all the time. And regardless, I still find myself mightily tipsy playing this game during the current season, since most of these rules (read: “Clark”) are timeless.

Without further ado!

toastDrink ONCE every time…:
