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.

Javier Bardem and Viggo Mortensen have been mentioned as the potential stars to land the role of Roland Deschain in Ron Howard’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series. Team Viggo! You can read my Dream Casting list of the main characters here, the allies of the ka-tet here, and the big baddies of the series here.

The cast is shaping up for Chris Fisher’s adaptation of the Thomas Berger novel Meeting Evil.  Luke Wilson, Samuel L. Jackson, Leslie Bibb and Smallville‘s Peyton List have all joined the cast. The novel’s supposed to be wonderful; here’s hoping Chris “S. Darko” Fisher doesn’t screw it up!

You can check out a gallery here for Lucky McKee’s The Woman, reuniting the director with Angela Bettis, the star of his terrific May. Continue reading

Christopher Nolan has revealed the catchy title of his third Batman flick, The Dark Knight Rises. He rules out The Riddler as the film’s villain, which leaves…who? Deadshot? Catwoman? Poison Ivy? Harley Quinn? Mr. Freeze?! WHO WILL IT BE?

star wars

Extra! Extra! George Lucas has found a way to milk even more money from our childhoods! ALL SIX Star Wars movies will be re-released to theaters in 3D. Lordy.

superman

Zack Snyder has been chosen as the director for the Superman reboot by producer Christopher Nolan. The movie will be written by David Goyer. Solid choice, guys. To no one’s surprise, Brandon Routh is probably not being asked to return as the title hero in tights.

the hobbit

Also Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit will be released in 3D. Obvs.

spiderman

Philip Seymour Hoffman’s name is being bandied about as Venom in the Spider-Man reboot, probably just to get skeptics like myself to be interested in it. Well played, bishes. Continue reading
