  • Blog Post: Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 19: Ripped From the Screen gets underway this evening

    There are all sorts of rituals associated with the opening of a brand-new show. Take – for example – how veteran performers will wish each other well on opening night. They never say “Good Luck” or “Have a good show.” They always say “Break a leg.” Well...
  • Blog Post: Soooo ... Did Michael actually like "Cars"? And Howe!

    Way back when I was just a little boy, our family would take road trips out west to visit relatives. One trip, we arrived early into Gallup, New Mexico, where we'd be staying on the second leg of our journey. After going out for dinner, my Dad took us for a small spin around town. In the dark of...
  • Blog Post: Road trip! Or "How I got to experience the world premiere of 'Cars' "

    It all started with an email. Being the crazed Pixar/animation fanatic that I am, I sent JHM's editor a note earlier last week, asking if I might do a review of Michael Wallis' new book, " The Art of Cars ." Mr. Hill quickly got back to me, explaining that Roger Colton had already called dibs on Pixar...
  • Blog Post: On the red carpet at the "Cars" premiere

    John Lasseter Director of "Cars" Q: I know you're a huge fan of Hayao Miyazaki . Is the Fiat 500 named Luigi a reference to Miyazaki-san's film (" The Castle of Cagliostro ")? A: No, it's not a reference to it, though I love "Lupin the 3rd: Castle of Cagliostro." I love that film. But his movies mean...
  • Blog Post: The Essential Geek #34: "The Iron Giant"

    I'm not a cryer. I'm not saying that to earn macho points. It's just me. On rare occasions of extreme, personal emotional distress, I have been known to unleash the floodgates. I sniffled uncontrollably through the fifteen minutes before my wedding, for example. When it comes to movies and TV shows,...
  • Blog Post: The Essential Geek #33: The Muppet Movie

    It's been tough, watching the Muppets lately. Don't get me wrong. I always love seeing them, even if they're shilling Pizza Hut or lamely schticking it up with Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey. When they do a movie, I' m there. I saw "Muppets From Space" at the theater in its initial release, something...
  • Blog Post: An Early Peek at "The Polar Express"

    Well JHM readers, I'm back! Back from California (finally got a tan after 2 years) and back with another story, and review. So today, I'll be frank about going from the nice sunny weather of San Diego, to the cold but enchanting weather of the North Pole. Because right after I got off the plane, it was...
  • Blog Post: The Essential Geek #30: "Superman"

    For a Man of Steel, he's a pretty bendable guy. As such, Superman can be tricky to put a finger on. Writers have grappled with creating his stories for decades, because unlike many other durable fictional characters, he's something of a blank slate. Is he an invulnerable mythic figure whose stories should...
  • Blog Post: The Essential Geek #28: "Jurassic Park"

    I have very vivid memories of the summer of 1993. I had my first girlfriend ever during that summer, a winsome lass named JoAnn. Whilst I was ensnared in the rapture of teenage love with this supple young thing, a second supple young thing by the name of Renee also had a crush on me. It never got pointy...
  • Blog Post: The Essential Geek #27: Star Wars: A New Hope

    It's hard to write this. Don't get me wrong. I love my gig here at JHM, and writing pieces for you fine folks to gander as you sip your coffee, snarf your lunch, or just stick it to The Man at work--well, it's mad fun. It's just that, this very moment, I'm finding it hard to write anything at all. You...
