Big Mike's Lil' Update 5/14/08

I have decided to be more proactive with my blog as way of giving more to my readers, yes both of you. So today, we begin with the informal updates and I will try to keep them up daily, every other daily, you know.


- So, Speed Racer bombed. Does this mean The Matrix was really lightning in a bottle for the W's? The sequels weren't as impressive and they've not done anything since. Bummer, chummer.

- It seems like McSpaced might be a no go. For those of you not hip to the hip talk, that is the derogatory name for the American version of the British show Spaced, the creation of Simon Pegg, Jessica Stevenson and Edgar Wright. Briefly, remember how when they made the American The Office and Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant were executive producers and involved in every step of the process? Yea, well, this what the opposite of that.

- Still waiting for a trailer for Zack and Miri which Kev Smith has been promising for a week or so. Why do I love that man? Is it because he's awesome?

- Blog news. Umm, yea. Reprinting of the Sarah Connor Chronicles review, cause I love it so much. (The show not my own writing!) And in anticipation of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Menace, I wrote a retro piece on Temple of Doom, which should be up on Friday.


That's it for now. What the news in your neck of the woods?

-Mike

Maybe Indy will be followed up by Indiana Jones and the last clone wars?
