The Real Fat Albert
A few weeks from now movie audiences will be treated to a big screen version of Bill Cosby's comedy creation, "Fat Albert." Actually, this movie should really be titled, "Slightly Over Weight Albert" because the star of the movie can hardly be called fat. In any event, the lead character is based on...

The 3D That Got Away: Part III
As many have already witnessed with "The Polar Express," a computer animated film can be successfully translated into IMAX 3D. However, few remember the day when the first feature-length transfer was supposed to belong to a giant green ogre. SHREK 3D At Universal Studios parks in Hollywood, Orlando,...

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,...

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...

The Lowdown on Ms. Lohan
Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time. As in: Hiring Lindsay Lohan, the pretty teen star of recent Disney remakes like "The Parent Trap" and "Freaky Friday," to headline in yet another redo of a Mouse House classic, "The Love Bug." But -- over these past few months -- it's been anything but a...

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...

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...

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...

One Exhibit to Rule Them All
As I walked out of the theater after seeing The Return of the King, I was struck by a sudden, depressing thought: next winter, there will be no new movie. I had grown accustomed to my yearly dose of Frodo and the rest of the Fellowship. True, I could buy the DVDs with extended versions and tons of extras...

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...
