It’s Sunday morning. I should be doing all kinds of different things but I’m not. I’m still on my sofa, lap top at my fingertips, searching, viewing, saving anything and everything I can absorb from last night’s Hawaii Five-0 Season 5 Sunset on the Beach. This, after I spent all night last night watching it all unfold on my computer.
First off I want to say a huge thank you to Mike Gordon (@crankydad) and everyone at the Star Advertiser (@StarAdvertiser) and Honolulu Pulse (@honolulupulse) for stepping up and providing not only a great live blog of all the festivities but a continuous live video feed from the red carpet. Thanks to their efforts we were treated to great red carpet interviews from several of the Five-0 stars.
I’m not going to try to do a complete review here. There are plenty of them out there and from writers much…
I recently rewatched all the X-Men movies and I must say, I have no idea why so many people (especially movie critics) despise the first Wolverine so much. Sure, you’ll find some shitty GGI (maily Wolverine’s claws) and some plot holes, but this goes for many other movies I know. To me, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is pretty entertaining, since it has a) Hugh Jackman, b) Liev Schreiber, c) the Canadian Rockies, and d) – most importantly – DANIEL HENNEY in it.
Another Marvel adaptation that didn’t work well was the B-movie / telefilm Marvel’s Man Thing. It was filmed in Australia and is only loosely based on the original series of Marvel comics. I was told that the real “Man Thing” was a complex and interesting character, but in this movie it is just hideous and — due to some very poor SFX — simply ridiculous. Do not search for it in my video, I left it out there in its dark damp swamp.
