I Am A Rational Adult Who Loves Smallville

Posted in Television Review with tags , , , , on May 12, 2011 by xymarla

Tomorrow, the two-hour series finale of Smallville will air, a culmination of ten years of triumphs and missteps in a show that I cannot help but love. Loving this show with my unceasing critical eye has not been an easy journey; Smallville has never made it easy.  But it’s a journey I’ve cherished, and so, on the eve of its finale, I defend Smallville in the face of astonishment and contempt. Read it over at Badass Digest.

Extra! Extra! Wonder Woman is getting the shaft again!

Ugh. So although Hollywood will spit out a dozen movies a year with random, no-big-deal MALE comic book characters, one of the greatest superheroes of all time who happens to be a woman can’t get one single damned feature film. The long-touted Wonder Woman movie is now a television show. Oh AND?! It’s being written/produced by the abysmal David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal). THIS IS BULLSHIT.

Some scoop from the set of X-Men: First Class, being shot at Oxford currently.

And we’ve got some news from NYCC regarding the Deadpool movie and which other Marvel characters we can expect to see, including…Colossus! The coolest X-Man ever! Obvs Ryan Reynolds will not reprise his role as Wade Wilson/Deadpool from X-Men Origins: Wolverine because he’s got bigger, greener, lanternier fish to fry.

wolverine

Speaking of our least favorite comic book movie of all time, serious-business director Darren Aronofsky is considering following the immense critical success of Black Swan with a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Yes, okay, that sounds reasonable utterly insane and made up. (Read my review of Wolverine here.) Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Moody chick from new Nightmare pulls casting coup of the century!

Yep, despite the terrifying rumor that Scarlett Johansson would be the outrageously inappropriate choice for Lisbeth Salander in the American remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, the far more fitting-in-appearance Rooney Mara has nabbed the covetous role. Although I was rather underwhelmed with her performance in the recent update of Nightmare on Elm Street, I’m willing to suspend judgment. For now.

I’ve just posted LOADS of Smallville S10 scoop to Watchtower including news on some very exciting return characters!

Joss Whedon gives a very newsy interview about what to expect from The Avengers! The answer: amazingness, obviously!

Extra! Extra! News and Stuff and Things!

  Welcome to News Day Tuesday! Hot off the presses, from their blogs to my blog to you!
piranha 

Eli Roth talks about the 3D technology for Piranha. We’ll see if it lives up to the eyeball-melting visuals of Step Up 3D! I have no doubt that it will live up to the story, in that it will not have one.  

i spit on your grave

 You can see the trailer for the remake of I Spit On Your Grave here. Yeah, it looks pretty cool, but mostly I’m excited about seeing if it holds up in Remake v. Original. Okay, I’m also excited that it’s pulled a no-rating for a theatrical release.

Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer has a secret genre project in the works! That sounds so exciting! Read my review of Zombieland here.   Continue reading

Extra! Extra! My Dead Zone review FINALLY goes up tomorrow!

Yep, you heard me right, ladies and gents. DIH is back to being a real blog! With actual reviews! OF MOVIES! A hearty thanks to the dashing Jerry for subbing last week. Now on to the scoop.

twinpeaks

In honor of the 20-year anniversary of my all-time favorite show, NPR has a wonderful essay on the incomparably off-beat Twin Peaks. io9 asks: “Will there ever be another Twin Peaks?”  Uhm, obviously no. Unless David Lynch makes it. Speaking of His Strangeness, check out Lynch’s eloquently random Twitter feed. And Laura Harring teases…a sequel to Mulholland Drive?! How would that even work? Look for my post on the lasting effects of Twin Peaks later this week.

Glee

And in honor of my new favorite show’s return after a painful four-month hiatus, Vulture presents a slideshow of nerdy clique representations on the big and little screen. Freaks and Geeks represent! But dude, where’s Chloe? She should at least be alongside Andrea Zuckerman when it comes to nerdy and obsessive high school editors. Come to think of it, so should Marla. Continue reading
