I've never known anything to whore itself around as fast or as successfully as Angry Birds.

To be admired and reviled in equal parts.
Crazy Frog had an album.

Like I wasn't already aware of them.

It's the Untitled Marvel Film that's the most interesting though - Black Panther? Dr. Strange? GOTG2?

Comic book nerds must be the easiet pleased market out there. It seems you can sell them the same shit film over and over again and they'll lap it up each time.

Does anyone still play Angry Birds?

I played it non-stop for years. But it's all about Candy Crush now.

Saw Godzilla last night. It's pretty good, as good as you expect it to be. It fails exactly where you'd expect it to fail (stock characters, massive plot holes, confusing CGI carnage) and succeeds in the same way (Cranston is great, globe-trotting fun, really obvious themes and metaphors, references to other disaster and monster movies, amazing CGI carnage).

The opening credits are really clever.

Ten times better than Pacific Rim.

here, I just saw Wolverine in the ad for the new X-Men flick. How are they going to get around the fact that they showed him meeting Xavier and all for the first time in the very first film that Stewart, McKellen and Jackman did way back when?
