It has been quite a while since I have heard anything at all about the Dark Crystal 2, “The Power of the Dark Crystal” and I actually thought it wasn’t going to ever see the light of day. It seems however the Dark Crystal 2 is happening after all with some most interesting recent news and development on the highly anticipated yet feared sequel.
There are a lot of details out on the web right now about the changing course of the new Rambo movie. From this dork’s perspective, as the news developed there was a lot of happiness and a lot of sadness. This has been a roller coaster ride of action and suspense. But it appears that the most recent news is completely inconclusive…is Stallone caving to the pressure of fans and critics…why start now, you made Rambo IV for crying out loud. I believe this would have been a clear signal to film critics and business that you were not really interested in what they think.
So the questions are simple…Stallone…you gonna break?
Fellow dorks…you up to speed on the changing story?

Apparently Rob Zombie just can’t get enough of remaking movies. Though I have not seen Halloween II yet, the early word is not good. Now the word on the street is that Mr. Zombo has announced he is slated to direct a remake of the Blob! In an interview with Variety, Rob Zombie indicated, “My intention is not to have a big red blobby thing — that’s the first thing I want to change, that gigantic Jello-looking thing might have been scary to audiences in the 1950s, but people would laugh now.”
Personally, I thought all of the blob movies were awesome…even the lesser know little Son Of Blob directed by Larry Hagman in the 70’s. But it does raise a good question, why remake everything?? The 1988 version of the blob was excellent for the time and is still one of my favorite horror movies. So Rob, why not just continue on with that story line and continue the germ warfare gone amuck idea in a Blob returns. I guess Rob Zombie has already begun writing the script and production on the film will begin spring 2010. The budget is expected to be around $30 million. That seem small in the days where James Carmeron just announced that Avatar was going to rack up some $450 million, but lets not forget that District 9 was made of this small token of Hollywood dough.
We had a blog a while back about real life superheroes, so in my late night boredom I decided to see if any of these guys have been gaining any real publicity. I found a neat little peice that was done recently on the news about them. Though it seems these “superheroes” may not be your modern day Daredevil or Batman, the story was nonetheless amusing. I do wonder if there are any real life masked vigilantes roaming the dark dangerous streets at night? I suppose if there were they probably wouldn’t be showing themselves on The Super Hero Registry sight. Perhaps I’ll do a little digging and see what I can find about masked vigilantes, but in the meantime these guys will just have to do!
