Jim Lee/Stan Lee 'Comic Book Greats' Parts 1 & 2

Stan Lee interviews Jim Lee while he was on his penciling run of the first few issues of X-Men v2. These are the first two parts of the interview. Jim left X-Men after issue #11 and went off to create Wildcats and draw for about twenty different titles. While Jim has penciled for Image and DC, he returned to Marvel for a year to pencil Fantastic Four and write various titles under the "Heroes Reborn" storyline. Nuff' said.

The Spirit #2

Here's the next issue of the Spirit titled "The Return of Dr. Cobra" from June 9, 1940. These seven page comics were originally published in newspapers, so there were no covers. A picture of Scarlett Johansson from the upcoming Spirit movie should suffice though.

X-Men - Out of the Past

Here's a classic 2-part episode (shown in 4 parts on youtube) from the original X-Men animated series. It's the first two episodes from season 3, titled "Out of the Past." These episodes were featured on the "Origin of Wolverine" dvd. Now if only they would start releasing these seasons on dvd. Practically every tv series in the world is out on dvd and Disney continues to horde the rights to this series. Damn you Disney. Captain Jack Sparrow should make you walk the plank. Nuff' said.

Sunday, August 24, 2008


Just when you thought you saw all of Iron Man, think again. It's a deleted scene from the movie. Iron Man hits dvd on September 30th. There will probably be more deleted scenes to be found on there. Nuff' said.

Why So Serious?

One more time, with feeling.

The Spirit #1 (1940)

So there's this Frank Miller movie coming out this year called "The Spirit" that looks very much like the "Sin City" movie. But most people don't know who the Spirit is because he began as a comic strip hero in the newspapers back in the 1940s. I can happily say that the original adventures of the Spirit will be posted here on a weekly basis. Let's start off with the first 7 page story of the Spirit originally printed in newspapers back on June 2nd, 1940. It's titled "The Origin of the Spirit." DC Comics has recently revived the character in a comic book series, but let's see how it all began with the master Will Eisner in control. Enjoy!

Eagle Eye Movie Trailer

Eagle Eye is due out in theaters in late September. This is what Shia LaBeouf does between Transformers and Indiana Jones movies. Could be interesting. It always helps to be best buds with Steven Spielberg. If Spielberg isn't directing LeBeaouf, he's producing his next movie.

Netflix Customer Service Stinks

Has Netflix gotten too big to care anymore? Everyone has probably heard about the Netflix mailing glitch last week. It took them an extra couple days to ship out dvds in the US last week to customers. But tell me why they started shipping me dvds that they already shipped me earlier that week. They messed up my queue and relisted 3 more dvds in my queue that I already had in my possession. If I hadn't quickly deleted the next 3 choices, they would have sent me more dvds that they had previously mailed me. Thank you Netflix for wasting my time and my picks. Netflix doesn't believe in using e-mail for customer service. They want you to call them if you have any problems. Well that didn't work. When I called their number last weekend, I was given a message to hang up and call another number to pay $5.49 to talk to customer service. What the hell? I've used Netflix's customer service in the past, but leaving a message like that at their number is inexcusable. Netflix is a mostly reliable service, but things like this make me flip over to Blockbuster because I can always contact them through at least e-mail if there is an issue. Netflix will refund customers 15% of their next month's subscription because of the mailing glitch. But why the hell do I want to renew with them anytime soon after this mess? has practically the same service and you can even return dvds to the store in exchange for free rentals. I think I'll take my business there until Netflix wakes up. Iron Man will be released on dvd on September 30th. I'll be buying that one and not waiting for any service to ship it to me. Nuff' said.

Babylon A.D. Movie Trailer

I haven't heard much about this movie coming out in late August, but at least the special effects looks cool. These are probably the best parts of the movie anyway. Maybe Hollywood should consider making movie trailers and then asking people if they should spend anymore money completing a film.

The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins - Leonard Nimoy

Leonard Nimoy sings for a 60s music video?! This is too funny. With all the times that the crew of the Enterprise has traveled back in time, you would think that Mr. Spock would purposely destroy any evidence of this song or video existing. Leonard Nimoy sings about Biblo Baggins, the Hobbit in this music video. One of the few song's from Nimoy's short-lived singing career. At least all the women in the video think Nimoy is "groovy." Now imagine if they played this song during the first Lord of the Rings movie.

Anybody want some Hulk shoes?

Marvel seems to be auctioning off props on EBay from this year's Incredible Hulk movie. This is a good item for Hulk fans. They're actually selling some of Liv Tyler's (Betty Ross) shoes from the film. Starting bid is $89.99 USD. Also, remember all those Hulk statues that they had at the movie theaters over the summer? If you have a pile of cash somewhere, you can take one of those home with you for only $3,100 USD. They ship the shoes, but if you want a statue it's for pickup only. You'll need practically a moving truck to haul that sucker. Or you could just throw Hulk in your convertible and ride around the neighborhood with him. There's one Hulk statue that's selling for $1,800 USD because he's missing his teeth. Hulk get smashed? Hulk needs dentures.

Incredible Hulk Panel at Comic Con

Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, and other people like the director, discuss the Incredible Hulk movie at last year's San Diego Comic Con. Marvel should consider putting these Iron Man and Hulk Comic Con panels on their dvds. They are so much better and more candid than typical dvd interviews. It's also fun because you hear things about the movies that the actors would have normally forgotten by the time the movie hits theaters.

The Mummy Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor- Extended Clip

Here's a partial scene from the new Mummy movie. The Brendan Fraser Mummy movies were always known for being action-packed and elaborate with special effects. It looks like there will be plenty of action in this new one too.

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor - Movie Trailer

You probably knew it already, but there's a new Mummy movie out in theaters beginning August 1st. Now we can call it a trilogy. The new film looks totally different from the first two, although at least a couple of the old characters are still on board. Brendan Fraser goes to China? I guess that some terra cotta warriors come to life and create some chaos. Jet Li is also supposed to be a mummy or something.
