MOVIE: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (2010)

August 20, 2010

Good goddamn.  You know what I love?  I love that there are people who are capable of thinking this kind of stuff up.  And not only that there are people who are capable of thinking this kind of stuff up, but that those people LIVE ON MY PLANET.  With me!  I’m an Earthling, just like them!  Heck, in the Great Cosmic Scheme of Things TM, we’re practically cousins!

Life is so, so sweet when you look at it that way, isn’t it?  Man, what a great planet this is.

Look, if you see one movie this year — ONE MOVIE — treat yourself to a truly grand time and make it this one (and that goes double if you’re in your mid-30’s-to-early-40’s, which is about how old I’d guess the makers of this film are based on the style and humor).  The opening 8-bit Universal logo and corresponding theme made me laugh out loud with glee (Atari 2600!  Oh, my misspent youth!), and I pretty much didn’t stop laughing like that until the very end. (p.s. Boyfriend Alert: Brandon Routh!  Nice to see you again, sir!)

Brilliant.  I know not what more to say.  SEE THIS MOVIE.

Coming to a TV set near you. . . Mr. Bruce Campbell!

June 26, 2007

This Thursday night, a new series is coming to the USA Network. It’s called Burn Notice and stars Jeffrey Donovan as a spy fired by the CIA who tries to score some contract crime-solving cases while also attempting to figure out who backstabbed him in the government. Entertainment Weekly gave it a solid B and said it looked like light-hearted fun, but what really caught my eye were the names of two supporting actors. First, Sharon Gless, forever known to me as Detective Christine Cagney from that great old 80’s series Cagney & Lacey, but more importantly, a name I never expected to see showing up on the cast of a TV show: Mr. Bruce Campbell!

This is me, dying and going to Heaven.

In other great Boyfriend-related news, I heard a rumor that Brandon Routh is getting back into shape in preparation for a Superman sequel (tentatively titled, Superman: Man of Steel). No verification on this from either Warner Bros. or director Bryan Singer, but I’m allowing myself to feel some hope in any case. The rumor I heard said Routh expects to start filming early next year. All together now: Woot!
