By The Way...

My second son is expected this weekend (Boo-yah!) so I'm blogging on auto-pilot for the next couple of weeks. How many blogs I visit depends on how much sleep I get. Just know I appreciate all my blogging buddies and will respond as much as I can. Just give me a couple of weeks.

To fully understand Tippett’s contribution to the film, check out special features on the Jurassic Park Blu-rays but here’s the short version: as the film’s preferred animation tech evolved from go-motion to CG, and there were various stages along the way, Tippett worked on the dinosaur animation and created their look and character.

2. Gal Gadot Addresses Wonder Woman Criticism In First Interview (via /Film)
I represent the Wonder Woman of the new world. Breasts… anyone can buy for 9,000 shekels and everything is fine. By the way, Wonder Woman is amazonian, and historically accurate amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I’d really go “by the book”…it’d be problematic.

1.  Bryan Singer Reveals X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Writing Team (via Geek Tyrant)
Director Bryan Singer has started developing his recently announced X-Men: Apocalypse film. Last night he shared a photo on Twitter that reveals the writing team he's assembled to help him put together the story and script. 
In the photo we see Singer with X-Men: Days of Future Past screenwriter Simon Kinberg, as well as X2: X-Men United screenwriters Mike Dougherty and Dan Harris. How cool is that! This is the first time since X2 that Dougherty and Harris have worked on an X-Men film. The photo came with the following note,
Late night #XMen #Apocalypse story session. #SimonKinberg @DanimalHarris @Mike_Dougherty It's snowing in Egypt!

    Fandango - We've Got Your Movie Tickets!


  1. Congrats on the new child! The links are great today. The parents acting out movies scenes with their kid seems so... hard. I'm not sure I could put for the effort.

  2. Congratulations, dear sir!
    Knew Vin Diesel would be in the movie.
    The recreated scenes are funny. Someone had some time on their hands. Do you plan on doing that for your kids?

  3. We'll see Alex. First I have to convince the wife to model.

  4. Congrats on the new geeklet! Amazonians only had one breast? No wonder they didn't have any men around.

  5. Thanks Man! It may or may not be a legend that they cut off their left breast to make it easier to carry and throw a javelin. Either way it makes them pretty tough in my book.

  6. Thanks Rusty! It's very exciting. It does seem like a lot of work, but maybe they're planning to sell t-shirts.

  7. all the best on new one... that is more exciting than anything i am sure... hope for a healthy... wonderful new baby. and i know nothing about this guardian film... nothing i tell you.

  8. Gal Gadot. I'm very happy she got the part. Nuff said.

  9. I agree Tony. She's gotten a lot of criticism, but it's just ignorance.

  10. No spoilers Jeremy! More exciting than the Avengers.
