    I'm not going to bash any of them. That would be bad form.

    But probably the most obscure was Death Defying Acts, a movie about Harry Houdini that was barely released in the US. It pretty much went straight to DVD.

    Too bad. I enjoyed writing that book, which gave me an excuse to research Houdini and his life. And I liked the movie.

    Oo! Neat! That's definitely something I'd be interested in (I'm sort of a fan of Houdini.) Definitely have to check that out, as well as your Man of Steel novelization.

    FYI: The movie stars Guy Pearce (as Houdini) and Catherine Zeta-Jones (as a beautiful psychic who tries to swindle him). I'm biased, of course, but it's worth checking out.

    My guess is that he'd found a way to do it, while leaving Kitty behind.:devil:

    Nah, Lex ended up using her as food after a few days while he coming up with a way to get off the island. He probably thought she was delicious.:devil:

    Just finished the novelization. I loved it. I always enjoy the reading experience as well as the movie. In the novelization you reference Nam-Ek's size to possible genetic experimentation with Rondor DNA. Was that in the script or a throwback to Nam-Ek of comic book yesteryear?

    That was my idea, as a little homage to the comic-book version.

    Is that not a popular Kryptonian brand of toilet paper?

    It can be used for that, but, it's generally purchased for blowing one's nose ;)

    Indeed so. I expected some kind of changes from the new head honcho but nothing like this.

    Nikki Finke is acting as Robinov's mouthpiece in that article. Variety will probably give the counter-argument.

    Ah, Hollywood studio politics.

    Reading the article about people ignoring each other on the long plane ride to the MOS premiere, while Nolan was sitting nearby made me chuckle. :lol:

    Never get on a plane with Nolan! He'll pull some "Inception" crap on you.

    The Robinov stuff does sound childish


    Just because some people gives you the cold shoulder, you pick up your toys and walk off in a huff?

    He sounds like he's full of himself.

    Robinov- No one came to congratulate me when "MOS" made 125 million. Screw you guys i'm going home!.
