#274: EstroFest 2008

August 27, 2008

Notes from the Manager

I'm going to try for another strip on Friday (hence the Wednesday update), buuut it might just end up being an extra-long Monday strip.

In the mean-time, complain about the new hairstyles in the Multiplex Forum!

You can see a trailer for House Bunny over at Apple. I enjoyed House Bunny, by the way. It's not a new comedy classic by any stretch of the imagination (perhaps it would have been if the writers — who previously penned Legally Blonde — had, you know, stretched their imagination a little bit more), but Anna Faris is always terrific, delivering mediocre lines so spot-on that it actually makes them funny… and it sure doesn't hurt that there's a lot of eye candy in the movie, despite the excess of slut-gear. (And yet, the screening I went to was almost entirely girls.)

For more on my thoughts (as well as Tom and Joe's) about the movie, check out episode #87 of The Triple Feature.

Leonard Nimoy (1931–2015)

Sunday, March 1, 2015

I was never a huge Star Trek fan, exactly. I love some of the early episodes, and I think Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is one of the greatest science fiction movies of all time. I enjoyed Star Trek III and IV, too, for what they were. I read a bunch of the DC Comics Star Trek stuff at that time, because my brother bought them. And I watched a bit of the Next Generation and then fell off the wagon. Kirk and Spock were my Star Trek, and the Star Trek 2–4 “era” was its peak for me, warts and all, because that’s the “era” that really hooked me. And really, for me, it was all about Wrath of Khan.

In addition to playing Mr. Spock, of course, Leonard Nimoy did a lot of other things. He was on Mission: Impossible. He directed a few movies (Three Men and a Baby!). He was a photographer. He was the voice of Civilization IV. But one thing I really loved of his was Standby: Lights, Camera, Action, on Nickelodeon from 1982–1987, which provided a behind the scenes look at movies like Star Trek III, Return of the Jedi, 2010, and more. Nimoy hosted and occasionally interviewed guests like George Lucas. As a budding film nerd in the pre-Internet Dark Ages, behind the scenes specials like Standby: Lights, Camera, Action were hard to come by. I ate that show up.

Anyway, as you’re undoubtedly aware by now, Leonard Nimoy passed away on the 27th. As cartoonists do when they’re sad about these kinds of things, I drew a picture:
