    Not really, it's practiced all over the world by completely different cultures with no connection to each other, and has been for tens of thousands of years. It seems, if Kryptonians have the same...

    While I like the Fox origin and the Englehart origin, being pragmatic I think the real origin is more boring. They simply decided to get together socially because they were all super-heroes with the...

    I have a fondness for the early days of Earth-One Green Lantern when he was the star and it was mostly about him fighting super-villains, while maintaining a secret identity as a test pilot. The...

    The Beatles had an agreement from their early days that all four had to agree to something or they wouldn't do it. This is why three of the Beatles going with Allen Klein bothered Paul so much,...

    You seem to underestimate how much of a challenge this is for creative people.

    Maybe I didn't make it clear just how big the backlash against the 1966 BATMAN had become. It loomed large over...

    It's the idea that it's advertised as Stephen Spielberg's WEST SIDE STORY that hits a nerve. If it's a faithful adaptation of the play then it's not. Is it his music, his lyrics, his choreography? I...

    When I've ordered tickets in advance it's almost always been for an IMAX showing. Getting to the nearest IMAX theatre is about two hours on public transit, give or take half an hour depending on...

    I can tell you, because I was there as a little kid, that Bat-Mania really was a big deal in 1966. It hit me like a Mack truck and I was obsessed with Batman from the debut of the T.V. show and...

    You don't need to click the link--I just included it for the sake of giving a reference. The title of the book is just a hook to get people interested--as proven by it winning the Diagram Prize. The...

    I would guess he was circumcised on Krypton, unless he was just an embryo when the planet blew up. I guess if it's a version of Supes that doesn't gain his powers right away, he could be circumcised...

    I had/have a lot of Beatles stuff on VHS tape. I hardly have any of that on disc. It's pretty easy to find this stuff online.

    I used to have a complete set of the Beatles CDs, but almost all of...

    The quotes in the article are from his interview with Carol on AS IT HAPPENS. I believe he said the book runs about 400 pages, but that a lot of that is images.

    I guess they have to do something to Spielberg it, to justify his name above the title. But for timeless musicals and plays, they shouldn't have to be rewritten. People want to see the genuine...

    I stopped watching LEGENDS when they dumped Brandon Routh, but I always loved loved loved Beebo. It's great that I can watch this clip, without knowing any of the current continuity. More more more...

    I'd argue that if it had not been for the BATMAN T.V. show and Bat-Mania in 1966, there would not have been the Burton BATMAN in 1989 and the return of Bat-Mania. The first made the second possible....

    It would have been cool, back in the day, if they had done a series of stories that filled in the gap between when he left Earth, in 1954, and when he returned, in 1976. I imagine it as being like...

    I recommend watching THE BEATLES: THE FIRST U.S. VISIT. It's a good behind the scenes look at the Fab Four as they travel through the States, appearing on ED SULLIVAN. They call into radio stations...
