WHYYYYYYY?! Mark Wahlberg is allegedly in talks for a remake of The Crow. This shit is getting ridiculous.

the hobbit

Yes! Ending months of speculation and hoping, Peter Jackson announced that Martin Freeman will play Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit.  More perfect casting can’t be imagined. Continue reading

We'll miss you, Harvey.

 Welcome back to News Day Tuesday, where you might find my reporting to be rather lackadaisical because I’m so sad about Harvey Pekar.  Also: I’m lazy.  

  

The 2010 Comic Con schedule is up! Go here to make yourself physically sick with envy, just like me!

  

I’m not sure how I feel about this All About Evil trailer. Perhaps…warmly? Continue reading
