First Look: CW’s “Arrow”

Posted: March 20, 2012 at 4:40 pm   /   Local, Television

I am not all that familiar with the character Oliver Queen/ Green Arrow.  I have seen the DC animated short that is awesome, and I have seen him in a few “Justice League” episodes.  But that’s all I have seen.  I was slightly surprised when I first heard that CW was shooting a pilot for […]

Warner Brothers and DC Still Pushing On With ‘Green Lantern’ Sequel

Posted: June 26, 2011 at 11:33 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

I finally saw GREEN LANTERN a couple of days ago.  The nice thing was that I was sufficiently warned.  I read all the negative reviews.  All of the initial excitement for the film had totally went away before sitting down in the theater.  Films are always better with zero expectations.  I have certainly seen worse […]

Movie Review: “Green Lantern” Starring Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively (Gossip Girl)

Posted: June 17, 2011 at 8:26 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

I have to admit that growing up, Green Lantern was not my favorite superhero. I tend to lean more towards the Marvel universe, with Batman almost evening things out on the DC side. So I wasn’t quite sure of what to expect of a “Green Lantern” movie starring Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively. But I […]

NEW IMAGES FROM GREEN LANTERN

Posted: April 20, 2011 at 9:41 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

I had very high hopes for GREEN LANTERN.  I like Martin Campbell as a director.  Ryan Reynolds can portray a funny, action hero really well.  Blake Lively is easy on the eyes.  Mark Strong as Sinestro is perfect.  But then the trailer came out, and I have been very apprehensive since.  Yeah, the newer footage […]

THOR AND CAPTAIN AMERICA GET CONFIRMED SEQUELS

Posted: April 19, 2011 at 7:48 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

Is it just me or are superhero films counting their eggs before they hatch?  I thought it was ridiculous that the studio would green light a GREEN LANTERN sequel before it was even close to hitting theaters, but evedentally that is becoming the norm seeing that THOR and CAPTAIN AMERICA are both getting solo sequels. […]

TV Gets A New Wonder Woman In Adrianne Palicki

Posted: February 17, 2011 at 10:06 am   /   Local, Television

I am all for bringing superhero projects to television.  I would much rather watch a weeklyseries that puts our title characters in new adventures, facing new villains, and delving deeper into their characters.  That is one of the reasons I am still watching The Cape.  It’s not a great show, but I think it’s fun […]

Wonder Woman TV Series Will Happen Eventually

Posted: January 14, 2011 at 2:26 pm   /   Local, Television

David E. Kelley has been very successful in the television community.  Doogie Howser, M.D., Ally McBeal, and Boston Public are just a few of the television successes that he has created.  So it seems odd to me that every major studio would pass on his pitch for a new show.  It seems even more odd […]

Review: Seth Rogen Becomes Superhero For “The Green Hornet”

Posted: January 14, 2011 at 9:29 am   /   Local, Tom O'Keefe Movie Reviews

To say that production on The Green Hornet has been “troubled” would be more than a bit of an understatement. The film has been in development since the Bush administration…the first Bush administration. It has had numerous “name actors” attached to play the titular hero (George Clooney, Greg Kinnear, Mark Wahlberg, Jake Gyllenhaal) and his […]
