My name is Dan. This this where I write about various pop culture things, and sometimes there's some personal stuff thrown in there too. I love movies, comics and photography. Every now and then I post a picture or two. Enjoy.

Trailer: ‘Men, Women and Children' - Sept 6 (TIFF)

Directed by Jason Reitman, written by Jason Reitman and Erin Cressida Wilson, starring Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, Judy Greer, Jennifer Garner, Emma Thompson and Ansel Elgort.

This is an interesting trailer, which actually feels more like a teaser trailer since there’s not one piece of actual dialogue said. That’s a little questionable. Using social media as a narrative device still seems like some so antiquated since social media is here. It’s not new yet it still feels like some filmmakers are touching upon it like it’s some new edgy thing.

I’m interested if Jason Reitman can pull this off after the disaster that was ‘Labor Day’. This film will be an accomplishment if he can actually get Adam Sandler to deliver a believable dramatic performance. Something he hasn’t done in about a decade. 

'Agents of SHIELD' Enlists Adrianne Palicki as Mockingbird

ABC’s Agents of SHIELD is bringing in another character from the comics. Friday Night Lights favorite and comic book fan Adrianne Palicki has been tapped to guest-star as Marvel super spy Bobbi Morse, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Having some actual Marvel characters on ‘Agents of SHIELD’ might actually help this show find some sense of direction. This also seems like very appropriate television level casting for Mockingbird. 

Baby Groot

I’m so happy that Disney/Marvel decided to release this clip which is easily one of the best moments in ‘Guardians of The Galaxy’. Hopefully there will be a dancing baby Groot figure out later this year that dances to everyone’s personal Awesome Mix.

Thanks Mr. Williams, for these and many other characters.

Jason Momoa to Play Aquaman in 'Batman V. Superman'

"Game of Thrones” actor Jason Momoa has signed up for the role of Aquaman in Warner Bros.’ "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice."

DC’s approach to trying to take on Marvel seems to be throw every possible character at ‘Batman vs. Superman’ and hope it works. As history has stated, the more characters in a comic book movie the better it tends to be, right? 

Jason Momoa will make a fine Aquaman, but can DC actually make Aquaman work on the big screen. Now let’s hope he’s not going to be sad and mopey like the rest of the characters in this movie.
