    It seems like a neutral observation that Todd Phillips, making a crime drama set in the early 1980s, referenced other crime dramas made in the 1970s/1980s. It's not like he was trying to get away...

    The blurb isn't exactly right when it says: "Originally, Nubia was introduced as Diana's replacement as Wonder Woman - her twin sister, separated at birth, who, because of the nature of the Amazons,...

    I think the main issue with the computer graphics on the Ryan Reynolds costume comes from it being early days in the use of that technology for costumes on real live human beings in movies. It's done...

    I just finished watching SPACE FORCE. I can't say that I liked it that much. It has its moments, but it's all over the place and feels out of touch with the times we're in right now. For Steve...

    Most TV shows make their impact in the first few seasons. If they stick around a long time, like THE SIMPSONS and SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, they often become moribund and irrelevant.

    In terms of having...

    Nat Cole and Oscar Peterson didn't look alike, but when they sang, they sounded almost alike. Nat's voice was maybe slightly deeper (from too much smoking?). The Canadian jazz musician, Peterson, is...

    Don't most heroes in space--in fiction and in reality--wear white in space? I think it helps for them to show up against a dark background. If anything, maybe they should consider less black on the...

    ROOM 222 is largely forgotten yet it was a show that combined drama and comedy. I have to remind myself that it was only half an hour, because a lot of the stories played like hour long dramas. It...

    THE ITALIAN JOB (1969), directed by Peter Collinson, starring Michael Caine; music by Quincy Jones. Trying to follow what they're up to in the first half of the movie was confusing; but then seeing...

    It seems like Movie Licensing U.S.A. is the guys monitoring activity. Someone at the school function must have dropped a dime. I would guess that with so many people flash-gramming and tweety...

    When I do an image search for random Bugs Bunny comic book covers, from Dell and Gold Key, I find covers with Bugs wearing yellow gloves or white gloves and to a lesser degree grey gloves or blue...

    Probably (although I woudn't say "outgrown"), but I wasn't trying to make the argument that modern readers would like the old school comics. I was trying to point out why those comics were attractive...

    That's it. I had forgot those details, so thanks for reminding me.

    I like the original LAW & ORDER because the main characters don't get in the way of the episode's plot. In fact, the few times when we see Lenny struggling with his gambling addiction or Jack being...

    The femme fatales would just enable Bruce's bad behaviour. What he needs is to find his own self-worth and make a life for himself as a fully rounded individual. But comic book fans want him to be...

    That doesn't pass the smell test. I can believe that Wolfman might have said something like that--comic book professionals say a lot of things that I take with a grain of salt--they are pestered with...

    I think it would be cool if Matt Ryan played Constantine as though he was from a different Earth than the Arrowverse version. So there would be subtle differences between the two iterations of the...

    On the matter of white gloves, why does Bugs Bunny have yellow gloves in the promotion I see for HBO Max Looney Tunes? It seems to be a Mandela Effect a la Berenstein/Berenstain Bears. I remember...

    I think it was a general opinion that the old D.C. was boring and the new D.C. was better.

    Look at this way. In the early 1980s, the comics weren't selling as well as they had, and in the shops,...

    Copyright restrictions limit how many people may be shown a movie. I vaguely recall a recent case where a charity was charged a bundle for showing a movie at a gathering of parents and children--they...

    Two things about the Superman story that I never or rarely see, yet seem to be very important to the character are 1) Clark Kent is a talented writer of reportage and 2) Superman has encountered so...

    I was a full grown adult when STAR WARS came out in 1977. And I fell asleep the first time I saw it in the theatre. I did see it again and I bought the comics from Marvel. I even went to see CORVETTE...

    TONIGHT was the creation of Steve Allen, circa 1954, and he established the format of the talk show we know today. Allen became so busy that Ernie Kovacs was given the Monday and Tuesday night slots...

    Look at Gil Kane's body of work and you'll see that he's very good at hands. He uses hands to express a lot of what's going on in a scene. The ring has to contrast with the hand, for it to be...
