Girl with the Drag Queen MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy


Thankfully, my esteemed colleague Barbra Dillon so eloquently covered the nuts and bolts of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in her spot-on film review of David Fincher's new feel bad thriller adaptation of TGWTDT; that way I can stick to my silly, inane rantings.

Let me be clear, I loved everything about this flick. I've been a fan of Fincher since he directed Madonna's "Vogue" video. (It's true!) Suffice it to say, he's gotten somewhat edgier since then. Although, he did direct NIN's "I Wanna Eff You Like an Animal" vid. Perhaps, that's why Trent Reznor supplied the totally bitchin' soundtrack for this tour de force. (Look out, stairmaster. Here I come!)

The Girl wt Dragon TattooIf you are debating whether to see director David Fincher’s remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo this holiday season, DO IT!  Well... allow me to clarify that statement.  If you are a fan of the bestselling book series by Stieg Larson, or if you are familiar with Fincher’s body of work (and are not shocked and/or appalled), go and see this film.  I will caution you, gentle readers, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is not for the faint of heart.

HERATIC MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy


Amongst DC's hit or miss on enjoyment/quality level of its random 52 pick up, Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang's take on Wonder Woman really is (Athena, forgive the holiday appropriate pun!) the gift that keeps on giving!

Spoilers, bitches!

In this special holiday blog, Fanboy Comics Contributor Ellen Tremiti shares her Top 10 Perfect (Offbeat) Holiday Movies.

 

10.) Reindeer Games: A guilty-pleasure holiday movie. Need I say more? There’s a bit of a convoluted plot mixed into this sensual thriller, but, honestly, who cares? Bundle up under the covers and check out the acting talents of Ben Affleck and Charlize Theron this holiday season.

9.) Die Hard 2: Christmas Eve + an airport + a blizzard + terrorists who have taken control of said airport’s communication system X Bruce Willis = an action-packed holiday film with lots of thrills and holiday spirit! Don’t forget the fight scenes on a moving airplane wing and, of course, an explosive, fiery finish to cap off this second enjoyable installment in the Die Hard series.

"With great power comes great responsibility." "I'm the best there is at what I do, and what I do isn't very nice." Those are the tag lines of the two most popular characters in Marvel Comics. So popular, in fact, that Marvel has completely cashed in and put the characters in as many books as possible. Wolverine is mostly associated with the X-men and Spidey was mostly a loner in the past. In a "Why not?" move, both characters are currently members of the popular team of heroes, The Avengers. Burning up the silver screen as Wolverine, Hugh Jackman reinvented Wolverine as a heart throb so smolderingly sexy, it may have the straightest of fanboys questioning which team THEY are on. Tobey Maguire did a dandy job in the first two Spidey flicks, so we won't hold him responsible for the debacle of Spider-Man 3. (Don't get me started!)

Cowboys & Aliens tells you everything you need to know right there in the title. If the idea of cowboys fighting aliens sounds cool to you, there’s a really good chance that you will enjoy this movie; if not, I don’t understand how you can get out of bed each morning. Like the similarly-titled Snakes on a Plane, this is a movie that delivers exactly what it promises. Before you get panicky, it is much less cheesy than SoaP; in fact, Cowboys & Aliens treats its western roots with tremendous care and obvious affection.

All right, stop! Collaborate and listen. Ice is back with a brand new invention. Something grabs a hold of me tightly.

Will it ever stop? Yo, I don't know. Turn off the lights and I'll glow. To the extreme, I rock a mic like a vandal. Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle.


- Vanilla Ice

Now, that song is gonna go through your head all day. Here's another one:

Oh, the weather outside is frightful! (Or as frightful as it gets in West Hollywood. I have better chances of getting struck by an ice queen than an ice storm!)
