Nerd reviews will have to be stratospheric for me to go see it. I don't mean good or really good or even the best damn thing I've ever seen. And here's why: I want Sony to get the idea that Spider-Man isn't a cash cow. I want them to start losing money on the property. I want Marvel Studios to get the rights to their own damn property. But, I know, despite my wishes, this movie will make fucktons of money and in a few years we'll see another one and then a third that will suck just as much as the last Raimi one and then a few years after that there will be another reboot that us dumbass nerds will flip our shit to see. Fuck, guys, have some goddamned pride, will ya? Shit.

Looks like Mr. Bort may be right about the identity of the villains in The Avengers

Just got an e-mail from DC with an exclusive clip of Justice League: Doom. Not because I'm have an inside source mind you, but because I buy my comics electronically.

Justice League: Doom was pretty good, I thought. Nice touch, having most of the voice actors from the Justice League series reprising their roles. Seriously, Kevin Conroy is the voice of Batman, and Susan Eisenberg is the voice of Wonder Woman.

In some ways, I thought it improved on the original "Tower of Babel" story that inspired it.

I love me some Patrick Warbarton; he was terrific in The Emperor's New Groove. I've heard of The Venture Brothers, but never seen it.

Heck it's probably on dvd. I may have to look for it at Blockbusters.

There's a comics store not far from where I live. I stop in once a week or so to see if there's anything new that I want to get. There are three groups of people whom I remember because they seem to be there practically every time I drop in.

Two of the three are a father-and-daughter combination. I assume they're father and daughter, anyway. In each case, it's an adult male accompanied by a girl somewhere in the 8 - 12 age range. It's always interesting and kind of sweet to watch them browsing the comics together and asking each others' opinions on who are the best and most interesting characters.

The third group is a family (again, I assume). It consists of a mother and father, along with a boy who is perhaps 8 years of age. Again, it's interesting and kind of sweet to watch them browsing through the comics together.

You are smart and I agree with everything you said.

A gentle reminder that DC Nation premieres on Cartoon Network on Saturday at 10am.

Wouldn't be surprised if in a couple decades that's what Batman looks like. What with exoskeletons and compact energy weapons becoming real now, one begins to wonder why a billionaire would risk his life in anything less than a powered armor suit armed with electrolasers and shit.

Of course it was already done, somewhat, in Batman Beyond . Never could grok why Terry wasn't armed with better non-lethal weapons. Like freakishly sharp batarangs are non-lethal anyway.
