Do you know what those crazy cats over at DC Comics decided to do when they heard the news Darwyn Cooke agreed to produce their cover art? Well, in December, 2014, Robert Venditti and Francis Portela jumped into a van and drove all the way to mars, as it was the only way they could come to terms with this stellar event.
Almost heaven, West Virginia. Blue ridge mountain, Shenandoah river. Life is old there, older than the trees. Younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze. Jake's roads, take me hooooome. To the place, I beloooooong. Mike Mayhall, Mountain mamma. Take me home... Jake's roads. The film.
To quote Helen Keller, 'The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart'. And do you know what else she said? No. She didn't say, 'I really-really-really want a zigga-zig-ar'. She said something else quoted by my mate Jordan, when he was telling me about his adventurous comic book.
Away in a manger, no crib for a bed. The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head. The stars in the night sky looked down where he lay. The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay. And if he wasn't sleeping, well, maybe he was up watching the following 86-minute movie made in 1984. It was Directed by and Starred: Edmund Purdom; with Alan Lake, Pat Astley, and Belinda Mayne.
Finally I'm proud to present to you the full checklist for DC Comics' two months cross-over event, 'Convergence'. As expected most of these titles are either an amalgamation or reinterpretation of what came out prior to the New 52. And with a little luck -- fingers crossed / touch wood -- hopefully some of them will stay around once this event has eventually been put to sleep.
Hark the herald angels sing. Glory to the newborn King! Peace on earth and mercy mild. God and sinners reconciled. If not reconciled then please be thrifty. For thy following 87-minute film was made in 1950. It was Directed by: Irving Pichel; and Starred: Jimmy Durante, Terry Moore, Tom Drake, with Frank Orth.
Do you know what those crazy cats over at DC Comics decided to do when they heard the news Darwyn Cooke agreed to produce their cover art? Well, in December, 2014, Tom Taylor, Andy Smith, and Yildiray Cinar, commemorated this news by punching Simon Cowell in the face. Hey! One good deed
always deserves another.
Did you know that Jesus had a younger brother called Clive? Yeah. Straight up. He was once an accountant for a thrift store based in Colorado, and... and... err? No. Wait a minute. That wasn't Jesus’ brother. That was Dionysus’ mother! God damn! I always get those two confused. Just like I did when I watched the following 116-minute movie made in 2007. It was Directed by David Dobkin; and Starred: Vince Vaughn, Kevin Spacey, Paul Giamatti, Kathy Bates, Elizabeth Banks, with Rachel Weisz.
Do you know what those crazy cats over at DC Comics decided to do when they heard the news Darwyn Cooke agreed to produce their cover art? Well, in December, 2014, Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato lit up a candle to honor this grand occurance. Lit it and then accidentally burnt down an aquarium by mistake. Silly sods.
Christmas movies - can't beat 'em. There's something magical and heart warming about festive-themed films: they're emotional, uplifting and not a little bit corny, but everyone can forgive a dose of schmaltz at Christmas, right?
In order for DC Comics to give their November themed 'Lego Month' some form of street cred, I decided to ask myself the all important question... why? Well? Not just 'why', per say. But rather why the hell couldn't they have come up with a more original concept. Especially since their lego themed characters are so easy to poke fun out of! Here. Check this out to see what I mean.
