  Wolverine sequel, already?
Posted by: Mike on May 5th, 2009 1 Comment »

A ton of people are reporting about this, this morning, so I thought I’d chime in.

Those of you who saw Wolverine over the weekend, probably saw the “Logan in a bar” ending, after the credits.  He’s apparently in Japan, and doesn’t know who he is.

According to some “inside information”, the studio may develop that as the next X-Men Origins movie. Not another character, as we previously believed, but as another Wolverine movie.

Is that what happens when your flick opens at $87 million? You immediately want to another one?  While the film made a boatload of money, it’s not getting all that positively reviewed.  Is that what they want? Another money maker, that leaves people with a less than optimal taste in their mouths?




  Wolverine cuts up competition

For those of you living under a rock, Wolverine opened this past weekend.  While some people have said they hated it, others said it was pretty good.

Christine didn’t hate it, but it wasn’t her favorite. (Read her review.)

What is evident, is that the movie’s marketing worked.  Whether or not you liked it, chances are, you saw it.  Wolverine pulled in a staggering $87 million over its opening weekend.

That’s more than the rest of the top ten movies of the weekend, combined.

What did you think? Did you see it? Was it up to snuff?




  Hugh Jackman Is a Nice Guy

Hugh Jackman is not only cool, but he’s apparently a nice guy, too.

TMZ got hold of a receipt from a bakery in Tempe, Arizona, where Hugh apparently bought breakfast for a bunch of people who’d lined up for the Wolverine premiere last weekend.

He spent just ver $4,300 on breakfast for them. If that doesn’t make him a nice guy, I don’t know what does.

Check out the receipt, here. (Warning, link is to a PDF.)




  Wolverine Alternate Ending Details
Posted by: Mike on Apr 30th, 2009 6 Comments »

I’m sure by now you’ve heard that Wolverine will have three different endings, depending on where you see the movie.  This isn’t a ploy to get you to drive all over the country to get to see all three of them.  Rest assured the “movie” only has one ending.

You’ll sit through Wolverine in its entirety before the “alternate” bits happen.  These very short endings come after the credit, and are reportedly all just ties in to whichever movie they decide to make next.

They’re not important to the story of the film you’ve just watched.  It’s just the studio’s idea to open the door for the next movie in the franchise, of which there’s apparently three different ones.

I’ve spoken with a few people that have seen the endings already, and the feedback I’ve gotten is pretty negative about all three.  They’re being referred to as “sucky ending 1”, “less sucky ending” and “ending that didn’t suck as much as the other two.”

I plan on checking out the film on Saturday morning, and will report back as to what I thought after that.  I’m not super excited about it, because I didn’t really love the X-men trilogy, but the trailer looks decent enough to go check out.




  What Happened?

For those that came to the site this morning, and wondered why the posts were from February 2008, ask our wonderfully terrible web host.  They seem to have messed things up late last night.

I fixed everything now, and we should be good to go, until next time.  Sorry about that.

  Van Helsing Two-Disc Collector’s Edition – Why?
Posted by: Christine on Apr 29th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

Van Helsing Special EditionNow, I love Kate Beckinsale. And I love Hugh Jackman. But Van Helsing is a guilty pleasure movie. Not a buy a special collector’s edition movie. However, Bloody Disgusting has the details on the new release.

And while it does include a special feature titled “The Women of Van Helsing : Anna and Dracula’s Brides,” which is sure to include interviews with Ms. Beckinsale, I just don’t see why anyone needs more than the basic movie package for this one. Anyone disagree?
