I think any Brainiac story should be a romantic comedy involving Siri.

Hey Greg, have you seen the movie yet? Are there any scenes in the book that didn't make the final cut in theatres?
Believe it or not, I haven't managed to make it to the movie yet. (I live in Amish country, so multiplexes are few and far between.)

I'm hoping to make it this week once work dies down a bit.

(The book officially goes on sale today, btw.)

I really hope it stays #1 next weekend, but it's probably not likely with the new Monsters Inc movie.

The new Monsters Inc move looks horrible, but what do I know.

Next weekend. Monsters University will be #1, but Man of Steel has a good chance to beat WWZ for #2.

Saw a couple of clips, it doesn't look very good at all. The review here isn't all that shiny either.

I hear the book is pretty great though.

I think MoS and MU will have a close race for #1, WWZ will be a distant 3. I love Brad Pitt but even he's not going to get me in to see that piece of shit.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Greg's novelization arrived a few minutes ago! Can't wait to start reading it.


As for the Brainiac references, the codex itsself was shaped like Brainiac's Skull ship. I don't know if that was intentional or if I'm just reaching. Also the Phantom Zone ship projector device was shaped like his triangle logo. I think also in some of the infortmation data streams resembled the same. I'll have to see it again to see...but I'm not the only one of my friends who picked up on this. Very subtle stuff.

I think that's because the Codex is shaped like, um, a skull. So is Brainiac's ship.

Yeah, I was a big fan of the original way back when, but this just looks like another Cars 2 to me, where it's nothing but a bunch of silly gags and slapstick action.

The most endearing, and touching, part of Monsters, Inc. was Boo and the interaction between her, Mike and Sully. Without Boo I'm not sure the movie can work.
