Anne, I can't disagree with your acessment of weekend activity. But I'm just as guilty as anyone. I rarely log on to my computer on the weekend because I'm out and about, or if I'm home later at night I'll watch a movie but not go to the computer. I usually check my computer Sunday mornings to see i...

Actually I'm suffering from a brain freeze. Robert Vaughn played Napoleon Solo on The Man From Uncle, but some of his friends may have called him Hans (or not).

Today is the last day to cast any votes in Round Two of the Silents competition. At least one of the match-ups is stuck in a dead heat tie and needs YOUR help!

Wow, Anne, I had never heard that.

The idea of Elvis playing opposite the Duke would have added an entirely different chemistry to the film. One can only wonder how much the final product would have varied from what turned out to be a very good movie.

Judith,
At least Ricky had plenty of acting experience on the family TV show so he wasn't a complete fish out of water. He was defintely better than either Fabian or Bobby V.

Hi Anne,
Hugh Jackman will indeed don the long claws of Wolverine in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, currently in post-production and slated for a May 1, 2009 release.

Chris, The singer du jour was an annoying habit in several of the Duke's films, and as you suggest was surely an economic decision to draw a few extra young bodies through the turnstiles. The one guy that I was actually impressed with in this role was Glen Campbell in True Grit . Yeah, he was really...

The Superhero Genre

Superhero movies have become their own genre, and usually a very profitable one for movie-makers. There have certainly been a lot of dogs produced in this genre over the years ( Hulk 2003, Electra, Superman Returns , etc...) but there have also been some fabulous efforts whose quality has transcende...

Kevin,
Thank you. This round will go until Sunday night. If we don't have any ties or complications we could run two rounds next week which would leave us with the final two combatants.
