New Transformers TV Spots

leave a comment »

I’ve gotten alot more excited than I already was for Transformers coming out this summer. One reason to like the director, Michael Bay, if you don’t already, is the fact that he and the producers are purposefully avoiding revealing completely all of the robots from the movie.

I like this approach, because it sure seems like lots of trailers give away a great deal before you even head to the theatre…::coughSpiderman3cough::

Here’s a page that will link you to two new TV spots released over the weekend. They set up everything, and make this look like it will be one action-packed ride….July 4th, 2007.

Pirates 4 Rumblings…

with 2 comments

I’ve been saying it since they tried to establish that Pirates of the Caribbean would only be a trilogy….Disney is not stupid enough to stop making movies…especially Pirates, considering they are some of the most successful movies in history.

Now, for the second time, they’re talking about rumors that Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley won’t return, but Johnny Depp is up for more….

Of course he is…Jack Sparrow only totally relaunched his career and made him the mega star he is today.

Survivor: Fiji – “An Evil Thought” Recap

leave a comment »

I’m really enjoying this season of Survivor so far, and I think it’s because they managed to get a decent crop of people this time around.

I thought it was an interesting reward challenge tonight, throwing fireballs at those targets.  They’ve definitely used the formula before, but those shots of the layer of cloth catching on fire and burning apart somehow looked cool to me.  I really wonder how long they were out there doing that.

Ravu finally managed to win a challenge, and got to hang out in an arcade.  At first, I remembered arcade is used for other things, besides videogames, so at first I thought it might be one of those rewards where they go to a small town and barter for their reward…but it turned out to be what I thought an arcade is supposed to.

I think the editing, plus a little alcohol from Rocky, clearly emphasized he was going to get the boot.  He was probably drunk, but still….don’t continue to make fun of people after they’ve shown they don’t like it.

Of course, they managed to lose another immunity.  Honestly, I think Lisi should have gotten voted out.  What’s up with her evil laugh…she’s done it twice now….She also had that little outburst about how not being picked for the tribe switch was her ticket home….seriously, I think she’s guaranteed she won’t be around to win the million.  She just needs to stop mentioning it, both in her confessionals and to the tribe, because it makes her look bad.

I think it’s classic that Yau Man hid that fake idol…It will be hilarious if it’s found and played by someone.  Genius…..

I think my pick to win, Earl, is still the frontrunner so far.  He and Yau may even end up in the Final 2…we’ll see how it plays out.

New trailers up for summer blockbusters

leave a comment »

So there are a couple of trailers online today for some of the possibly lesser-known (or ones I’m not nearly as excited about, but still want to see) blockbuster movies out this summer…well, at least one.

Ocean’s 13– I’m not as excited about this one simply because I remember not enjoying the previous one. Ocean’s Eleven is still great on repeat viewings though. I remember totally not expecting the first to be that good…..I still crack up every time Bradd Pitt pretends to be a SWAT officer.

Evan AlmightyAgain, I though Bruce Almighty was just OK….Though, after watching the trailer for this follow-up, I’m thinking seeing Steve Carell’s antics will be entertaining. I saw alot of similarity to sayings and mannerisms from NBC’s The Office. I’m sure Office fans will turn out in droves to see this one.

The Wonder Years….Returning in Reruns…Finally!

with 3 comments

I’ve been waiting years to see The Wonder Years return to TV, and the day is finally almost here.

I don’t know what network it’s on….I just know it’s back, and I’m Tivoing every episode I possibly can.

I think I’d have to consider it one of my all-time favorite TV programs.  I’m looking forward to seeing some of the episodes again, considering I was like 15 when they were last on.

Now….if only they could get to releasing the series on DVD.  That’d be a definite addition to the collection.

The Office “Safety Training” Photo

leave a comment »

Here’s a link to a photo from the upcoming episode of The Office entitled “Safety Training”.

The folks over at Office Tally make an interesting, and exciting, point that Karen is not standing next to Jim…..

Hopefully this is a preview of things to come…..I think it’s also fairly obvious from all the Jenna Fischer interviews what is going to happen with Michael and Pam.

I won’t post here…..It doesn’t really matter either, because the same thing happened last season, and I still enjoyed it….a lot!

Lost 3.14 “Exposé”

with 4 comments

I have mixed emotions about this episode.

First, I always love it when shows start off with beginnings that make me wonder if I’m on the right channel.  I figured out pretty quick she was on a TV show, but still, initially I questioned if I had mistaken.  How classic to have Billy Dee cameo as himself….I found that funny.  Hadn’t heard anything about it either!

I’m going on memory here, so I apologize if this is out of order or I have a mistake.

The Good:

  • The first half of the episode, when I thought they maybe had worked with the Others.  I guess that was just too easy…
  • Bobby Biggs, AKA the science teacher who blew up in Season 1, was back…merely to introduce the spiders….
  • The splicing in/re-filming of scenes from Season 1 and 2 to establish Nikki and Paolo were actually there the whole time.   The show seems so different now.
  • Sawyer’s cracks about “Who the hell are you?” over, and over…..and over.

The Bad:

  • So apparently, Nikki and Paolo still served no purpose.  Did the producers kill them off simply because people were annoyed by them?  I have to wonder whether or not they really meant for them to die, or were forced to write it in.
  • The twists that were revealed, at least partially, by the previews.  Seriously, when Charlie started talking to Sun, and when they accused Sawyer, I already knew those would happen!
  • The under-a-minute time given to Ben and Juliet…they’re footage was better than most of the other flashback stuff combined.
  • Like I read on another blog…TV Squad, I think…..didn’t the producers say Nikki and Paolo would be forever remebered after some huge revelation in this episode?  Not so much…..

I still enjoy watching this show week to week, but it sure seems like this season they are promising so much, but delivering very little.  Given, the end of Season 2 establishes a high level to live up to, I still think that at times I could come up with better storylines than these.

We’ll see what happens….And yes, Kate gets yet another flashback next week.
