A Short History Of Pixar Shorts

Pixar’s shorts have a long history– even longer than their features, actually. And with the release of Brave comes the release of La Luna, the twenty or thirty-somethingth short film from the animation studio, depending on what you consider canon. There are the theatrical shorts and home entertainment shorts, as well as the series of Cars Toons and Toy Story Toons.

Post-Credit Scenes Aren’t All Bad

Once again, the issue being debated has been broken down into two sides; those for post-credit scenes and those against post-credit scenes.

Michael Mann Likes Haggis and Gold

A little diddy of a news tidbit concerning Mr. Mann and a Paul, a Paul named Haggis. Collider.com via Heat Vision reports that Mann is set to direct Gold and Haggy to produce. Rumor also has it, as rumors often do, that Leo DiCaprio is reading the script as we speak, or as I write this, or as you read this. It’s probably a cock-tease, but consider me teased!

Super(man) Sundays for DC’s Man of Steel

There is little doubt that DC has some catching up to do… Sure, they rocked out the two BEST comic-book film adaptations of all-time with Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins and The Dark Knight AND they’ve got Green Lantern glowing on the near horizon (with almost super-star Ryan Reynolds) BUT as far as production goes they pale in comparison to their nemesis Marvel.
