The Muppets are BACK for Christmas

Posted by: |

Ahh memories of childhood. On Wednesday, December 17, NBC will air A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa. Get ready to share a cozy blanket and hot cocoa with your children or kid relatives for this show. This is one Christmas special you might not want to miss.

“Kermit rounds up his fearless friends to get to the North Pole before Santa makes his rounds on Christmas Eve and as usual, nothing — not even Miss Piggy’s planned trip to the tropics — can stand between the Muppets and a joyful Christmas. In typical Muppets fashion, chaos and humor ensue as they try to find a way to the North Pole, but will they make it in time?”

Posted by: |

Recently news had came about that Tim Burton was going to remake or re-imagine Alice in Wonderland for Disney.  Many knew what would be following after then that is Johnny Depp joining the cast.  Depp will be playing the mad hatter.  This is the first glimpse we see of him if this is actually real.

Karate Kid Remake

Recently every movie from the 80’s has been getting a remake.  So why don’t they add one more. The next movie they will be remaking is the Karate Kid.  If it doesn’t get stranger then that the Karate Kid will be played by Will Smith’s son Jaden Smith.  With that bit of casting done who will be Mr.Miyagi.  Will Smith is also set to produce the movie.  

Another problem I have this is how will they top the original’s final song.YouTube Preview Image

Star Trek

For all of you Trekkies out there, I hope you’re prepared. Whether that preparation is for one of the best movies of 2009 or a total failure we have yet to learn.  But my hopes are high. J.J. Abrams, the director, is not to be taken lightly he is known for producing Lost, Cloverfield and number of other T.V shows and films. Although, I’m sure there is a lot of speculation as to whether he can really pull this off. But with actors like Zachery Quinto playing Spock (Sylar in Heroes) and Eric Bana playing Scotty (The Hulk) where can you go wrong?

There is, however, a bit of drama surrounding this film. William Shatner, the original Kirk, is rumored to have said that he hopes the movie will bomb. I believe this is due to the fact that he desperately wants a role in it, along with old time co star Leonard Nimoy (original Spock). There is much talk about the two of them making an appearance in the film but have made it very clear that it better be more than just a cameo. Personally, I would love to see them both in the movie as long as they leave their “has been” attitudes behind.

The movie is said to release May 8, 2009 a day you should all mark on your calenders!

Wonder where all the events of the movie Cloverfield happend? Well here you go, complete with descriptions. Like the one below:

“I’m not positive but this seems like a likely location because there are hella electronics stores right here and plus it’s unlikely that there are any below Canal Street so process of deduction, you know. this is where that one dude is like let me not speak to my companions let me run and and get a new cell phone batter while dude behind the camera is most annoying asshole all “we have to go, we have to go” just shut up man you are biggest tool. and also we see that news thing where the parasites are revealed all killing that one kid or whatever”
