    I have a weird feeling that the Dragon Ball franchise is going to hit the fans (the machine not the people) when it releases its live action movie.

    What a summer indeed!

    http://www.starwars.com/theclonewars/news/announcement.html

    How about adding Star Wars: The Clone Wars to that list!

    Hulk is not a sequel Mr. Knowitall. :p Its a new crew and new approach to the character and a chunk of the flick was shot in Toronto...so its at least interesting enough to point and laugh at the obvious areas of Toronto that were "turned into" New York City. Oh and Ed Norton and Tim Roth rawk. :p

    They were shooting in my neighbourhood and I still missed it. Had final project week and was at the school day and night (Caity can vouch for that :p). They turned the entire are into Harlem. I can't wait to point out the very obvious Elephant and Castle that magically transported itself from Yonge Street Toronto to Harlem NY. :p

    Thing is Trek has been pushed to 2009 now. I am curious about the Clone Wars movie though apparently its supposedly suppose to be a lead into the new cartoon that will show on The Cartoon Network and for that reason will it be shown outside of the USA.

    Oh... it'll be shown everywhere... starwars.com said as much... but probably not out for too long... and I'd imagine the cartoon will air everywhere... Teletoon shows Cartoon Network shows as it is for Canada already... and everyone got the previous Cartoon Network Star Wars toons... (bad as they were)...

    I actually got to see Hancock in theaters! Lol, it's rare I go to the movies, so what can I say?

    Anyways, I thought it was amusing, some definite laugh out loud moments, but it wasn't a must see, imo. But yeah, Will Smith is still an amazing actor, and Charlize Theron is just one hot lady.

    I can't wait to see Harry Potter. I still prefer the way the first two movies were done, but at least this is the same director as the last two.
