The pictographs at Agawa Bay, north of Sault Ste. Marie Ontario are a sacred site to the Ojibwe people. Misshepezhieu, is a great lynx and spirit of the Lake Superior. By thrashing his tail, he brings about the great waves of Lake Superior. » 10/29/14 7:32am Wednesday 7:32am

I still have a scar on my shoulder from where a lawn dart grazed me on the way down at 5 years of age. Probably missed my head by less than 3 inches. The fact that I recall it so vividly 40 years later is testament to my first real brush with death at a way-too-early age! » 10/16/14 12:46pm 10/16/14 12:46pm

Well, the fact that the only reason Dreamworks has this is because Spielberg is a fan of the source material gives me some hope for this. I assume Spielberg will executive produce, so he will probably keep things in line and and assure that there a fairly high standard to the production and script. » 9/04/14 8:07am 9/04/14 8:07am

Back around this time, TVO also used to air Doctor Who several nights a week (the half hour serial episodes) and then on Saturday afternoons they would run a full story (usually 2 hours). That was my into to the Doctor back when Tom Baker was in the role! » 8/26/14 8:24am 8/26/14 8:24am

Slightly-dated sci-fi should never be immediately equated to bad sci-fi or to cinematic cheese.

Disney and Star Wars... While not comic-book based, what they have put planned for future 'Episodes' supported by stand-alones would also constitute a mega-franchise attempt, would it not? Also, given what Disney paid for the rights, the House-of-Mouse may have more to lose than anybody else. » 3/31/14 10:33am 3/31/14 10:33am

Casual viewers don't understand that the Oscar's memoriam is intended as a memoriam of current and past 'Members' of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The vast majority of those individuals that people complain as missing from the list every year are not members, nor were they ever members of the… » 3/04/14 11:23am 3/04/14 11:23am

Unfortunately, thanks to Netflix Canada's response to ISP net throttling up here, watching on Netflix Canada means watching in a resolution probably equivalent to 360p. Hopefully Lucasfilm eventually releases these on Blu-ray like the rest of the series. » 2/13/14 11:38am 2/13/14 11:38am

I do think that Marvel is treading in to unknown territory with GotG. Spider-Man, X-Men and Fantastic Four have pretty much been Marvel's 'A-listers' in terms of name recognition for the last couple of decades and Iron Man and Thor were basically at the top of Marvel's 'B-list' (at least until their movies came out).… » 2/05/14 10:40am 2/05/14 10:40am
