On March 12, 2012, it was announced that Michael Eisner's Tornante Company would be producing a new movie based on the Garbage Pail Kids, likely with computer-generated character imagery. Michael Vukadinovich has been hired to write the screenplay for the film and PES has been hired to direct.

I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

Interesting. So I guess they'll be setting it thirty years after the events in Return of the Jedi?

OK, so they are funding a Veronica Mars movie via Kickstarter. 2 things. A) This is an Awesome idea. B) Can we somehow get more Firefly this way?

Wooow, update:

Less than 11 hours after Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell announced a Kickstarter campaign, fans have raised the $2 million necessary to fund a Veronica Mars movie.

I'd just be happy with a Joss Whedon show lasting more than 2 seasons before some TV exec decides to pull it in favor of crappy reality TV that gets fewer viewers but makes more money because it's so damn cheap to make.

New Star Trek film with Dominic Cumberbatch as the baddy.
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

Argo.

Affleck did a fine job of setting up the suspense (although the suspension of disbelief starts to waver towards the end), if at the expense of some historical accuracy. Lora Kennedy, however, did a superb job on the casting. It was like, "Hey, let's get a whole bunch of awesome actors. Bryan Cranston is awesome. Who doesn't love John Goodman? Hey, Carnivale was an awesome show, let's get a couple actresses from that. While we're at it, Smokey from Lost, and how about that funny guy from Spin City?"

I knew it was all over for Rousey when the 'lube shaming' fiasco broke 3 days before the fight ... the Gods punished her, sans lube, for blasphemy.

Praise lube !

As for force awakens, yes, it'll be good to see another installment.

I already figured out who Kylo Ren is however ... a self inflicted spoiler. It's bad enough when other people spoil things for you, but when you spoil them for yourself it's arguably worse, because predictability undermines enthusiasm, especially when it flies in the face of expectations.
