If any given talent working in comic books today were to attempt to write a book about a low-class street whore that gets superpowers, that person needed to be Garth Ennis. Of course, Ennis did wind up writing that book. Called The Pro, it was released eight years ago as a one-shot. Now its inker, Jimmy Palmiotti, has created a short animated film setting up the origins of the world's first superhero hooker and how tough it is for a working girl to earn a living, both as a streetwalker and as a crime-fighting caped crusader.Add a comment (0)
The San Diego Comic-Con has finally posted its Thursday schedule of programming this year's event. There's quite a number of panels devoted strictly to movies and television shows, with a number of high profile actors, directors, writers and producers scheduled to make appearances at their respective presentations. I've pulled out the highlights as they pertain to Hollywood and the movies CA covers. Don't forget that this year's Masters of the Web panel is also happening on Thursday @ 3 PM.Add a comment (0)

A guy named Blake Bevin made himself a pair of honest-to-gosh working power lacing Nike sneakers, a crude prototype of the kind that Michael J. Fox put on in Back to the Future Part II. We're now just five years away from the 2015 that BttF2 showed us, a future where there will be flying cars, hoverboards, hologram theaters and self-lacing Nike sneakers. What's kind of scary is that there seems to be more people online that want to bring about the creation of power laces than flying car technology.Add a comment (0)

Can it really be 10 years since M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable came out? I guess so. Back then the wave of superhero movies hadn't yet truly taken hold of Hollywood; there wasn't Tobey Maguire swinging around as Spider-Man or Christopher Nolan's nipple-less Batman on the scene. And while M.N.S. gave us his take on the origin story of a superhero and his yang, Unbreakable's place in the superhero movie pantheon seems to have been lost amidst the higher profile Marvel and DC heroes' getting their movies in the '00s.Add a comment (1)
Generally speaking when the fan community starts producing videos of their favorite movie franchises it's a sign of the popularity of the trademark. While there's been a ton of Star Wars and Star Trek fan films there hasn't been any set in the universe of Tron. Perhaps it has something to do with the dated look of the 1982 movie as anyone attempting to create Tron's neon-tinted digital world on today's computers would probably produce something that looks better than what we saw 28 years ago.Add a comment (0)

The first lady of DC Comics has got a new look and backstory. With yesterday's publication of Wonder Woman #600 the Amazonian Princess known as Diana has had her look updated to better reflect the modern era. However, the question has arose as to whether old fans will approve of Wonder Woman's new look and whether the makeover will attract more readers to the character and comic book.Add a comment (11)
One of the online movie blogging community's best original gems are the regular video compilations posted by Pajiba. Up to this point the editor of the Get Out of There and 100 Cheesiest Movie Lines of All Time videos had preferred to remain anonymous. With his latest release, The 100 Greatest Movie Insults of All Time, he's stepped out into the spotlight. His name is Harry Hanrahan. He's British, too.Add a comment (1)

It's amazing to me that, thirty years after Kenner sold the original AT-AT Imperial Walker as part of its collection of The Empire Strikes Back toy line, people still remember craving to be given one by their parents. Count me among that collection middle-aged men (and women, too) that wanted an AT-AT but couldn't swing it as a Christmas or birthday gift. Little did our guardians know that an invisible scar was being left on our very souls.Add a comment (2)

35 years ago today a movie opened that changed the motion picture business. Plagued by numerous difficulties during its production including going over its shooting timeline by 100 days, a ballooning budget and a mechanical shark that broke down more often than being operational, Jaws went on to become the highest-grossing movie of 1975 and eventually all-time (a record that was surpassed two years later by Star Wars.)Add a comment (1)

What's the appeal to amateur filmmakers to invest their manpower and money to make Batman fan films? Remember Batman: Dead End, the short film that Sandy Collora made back in 2003? Or what about John Fiorella's Grayson, the Robin wish-it-could-have-been trailer? If you thought that you had seen the best of what could be done with Batman on a microbudget, this brand new short may make you reevaluate your opinion. It doesn't even have the word "Batman" in its title.

Switch on the news and you'll swiftly see that World Cup fever has overtaken the world. Now try watching any given World Cup match with the sound on. That annoying buzzing sound you hear are hundreds upon hundreds of vuvuzelas, long plastic horns that fans are blowing non-stop in the benches. The vuvuzela din has attracted considerable attention from some spectators wishing that it would go away, that it's annoying and distracting from enjoying the match. Others think that by blowing a vuvuzela you're only showing your enthusiam for the sport.
So if the World Cup were held in Middle-Earth and not South Africa, what would Gandalf the Grey do?Add a comment (0)

I feel old. There's a remake of The Karate Kid in theaters today and the memory of watching the original '84 Karate Kid is still there in my mind. For those of us that look around at all these remakes from our teen years (or even 20s) and wonder whether we got old or if Hollywood is recycling story concepts quicker than empty plastic bottles in the Ed Begley household, we've got to be wondering just what the stars from the original movies feel about this or what they're doing.Add a comment (3)
