Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Review, and my TF2 Wish List

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - Megan Fox and Shia LeBeoufI still need to decompress what I’ve just witnessed.  While I don’t appreciate, or approve of, Michael Bay’s sense of humor, I do think he finally got something right: he let the Transformers hold actual conversations with each other.  The Autobots spoke more, and the Decepticons definitely spoke a lot more this time around.

I would shave a bit off of the beginning of the movie.  Anyone that’s seen it will probably agree: the Pretender, and the first conversation between Sam and Mikaela weren’t really necessary.

Anyway, there are a lot of things that I would like to say about the movie, but I want to bring up something I wrote in 2007: My wishlist for Transformers 2.

Scrubs: Season 9 – Scrub School?

Here’s the latest on the next season of Scrubs. As more and more is revealed I am more or less hopeful for the future of the show. They said before that, like Frasier was a spin-off of Cheers, the next season would be a similar departure from Scrubs. It seems that is more and more the case.

Producers are looking for a new title for the show, as the direction is moved from a teaching hospital to med school. Word is they’re looking to keep Scrubs as part of the title in some way, but we’ll keep our eyes open for that. One title that ran through my head that could achieve both familiarity as well as help to explain the new format of the show is “Scrub School.” But that’s my own idea and by no means official.

Sigourney Weaver Talks About ‘Ghostbusters 3’

This interview makes it seem like Sigourney won’t be coming back for the third Ghostbusters film, but without a finished script, we don’t know any more than she does about her character appearing in the film. Hopefully she’ll appear, but we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

Mike Moody: The rumor is you might revisit one of your famous comedy roles, Dana Barrett, in another Ghostbusters sequel. Where do you think Dana and Peter Venkman’s relationship will be when the new movie picks up?

Sigourney Weaver: Probably non-existent.

Really?

Yeah, I’m pretty sure. I think they’re still writing it, but (laughs) I’d be very surprised … You never know. I just did a benefit with Bill (Murray), and we love working together, but I think they’re trying to create something new completely with the Ghostbusters, although I know Bill is in it. I hope my little son Oscar (from Ghostbusters II) is a Ghostbuster!

So, you won’t be appearing in the movie?

No, I don’t expect to have anything to do with it, although I wish them well.

Scrubs – Season 9 Details: Hospital and Med School Settings

We finally know more about what they’re going to be doing to change the format of Scrubs for the ninth season. I have to admit being slightly worried about the shift in the show, but now I am excited by the prospects that this new format brings to the show. It’ll be interesting to see the show’s new format, and now that we know what the setting will be, I will rest a lot easier about it. And I look forward to future announcements.

This just seems like the right move for the show, and almost like a naturally planned transition for the cast of the show as well as the story. They’ve told the story of an intern rising through the ranks over eight years, and now it’s time for a new story.

That didn’t take long at all.  The artwork for the new Legend of Zelda game in the works for Wii has just been released by Nintendo.

Not only that, but Studio Ghibli and Level 5 are working on an RPG for the DS called Ninokuni.  There’s no word on when or if it’ll come stateside, but it is beautiful.
