Heroes 3.19 - "Shades of Gray"

Last night, I went on Twitter while 'Heroes' was on, because I was bored out of my gord (P.S. my Twitter name is AnchorPete and I need more followers). Anyway, while on Twitter, I found a link to a live discussion taking place on the Ifanboy website, where a dozen or so members were commenting on every thing that went down on 'Heroes'. Reading the discussion, I had to do a double take. They were actually loving 'Heroes'!

What the hell?

Battlestar 4.20 - "Islanded in a Sea of Stars"

This week's episode, "Islanded in a Sea of Stars" was actually hurt by the prior week's coming attractions. The highlight of the episode, which was also the most shocking moment, happened right before the beginning credits rolled. By the time 56 crew members were sucked through a breach in the hull, into the cold vacuum of space, last week's preview made the entire disaster old news. It never fails though, seeing a human or Cylon floating dead in space is quite the disturbing image.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday March 11th, 2009

The Pang Brothers, who apparently have already directed two Chinese language sequels to their film "The Eye", are prepping a third sequel to be titled "The Child's Eye" (get it), to be shot in 3D. Have any of you guys seen either of the first two sequels?

FOX has picked up the French horror film "Martyrs" for remake, pretty much ensuring that there will not be a good ending to this story. The original "Martyrs" is about a little girl found by cops, who it's revealed was held hostage for years in an abandoned slaughterhouse. There are no signs of abuse or sexual misconduct, but as they start to unravel the mystery of what happened to her, something even stranger starts to appear.

I don't usually report on "Twilight" news, but this tidbit was too interesting to pass up. It seems that Juan Antonio Bayona is in the running to direct the third film in the franchise. Bayona, a Guillermo Del-Toro protege, is the director of last year's "The Orphanage". Even if he did get the job, he'd obviously still be dealing with the source material, and the conveyor belt nature of it all, considering they've already pegged a June 30th, 2010 release. Keep in mind this is the THIRD film, not the second one, which hasn't even started yet.

I'm still really excited for "The Haunting in Connecticut", Lionsgate's late March release, but I'm not super psyched about this clip featuring a bird attack. Why? Well, I'm mighty sick of all the old ghost movie cliches, and the "animal goes apeshit" one is just about as old as they come.

In Real People News: 

Wow, you must be quite the ladies man to have no idea how many corpses you've had sex with during your 16 years working at a morgue. One would think he could at least ball park it.

I always thought that Australia was a beautiful place that I would love to live some day. Then I read stories like this one, about about a couple waking up next to a six foot tall kanagroo, and I think I'll take a pass.

On this day in history: 

1669: After a series of premonitional earthquakes near Mount Etna, the largest volcano in Europe spectacularly erupts, destroying the Sicilian town of Nicolosi and killing 20,000 people.
