Stories I'm reading: Some long overdue hypnotherapy
Two Tombs Up!--Now that's what I call a sequel. Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life is so much better than its forgettable predecessor. (I don't even remember what that was all about.) It actually has a coherent and sensible plot (a good progression till the very end), great location shots (gotta love those frequent flyer miles), no gratuitous fight scenes (Charlie's Angels can go to hell), a ruthless and resourceful villain (a welcome change), and a very tangible sexual tension between Croft and Sheridan (Yum-my.) All in all, a highly enjoyable movie that hits what it's aiming for: Jolie good fun summer viewing. Salon.com
Gerard Butler--Amazing what a haircut and some hours in the gym can do. (Check out these before and after shots!) This great-lookin' Scot shows he has what it takes to become a serious actor. (Who else do you know contracted hypothermia during the first day of shooting his first film?) And if things go his way, we may very well be looking at the next James Bond.

Hulk Smash!--The overall feel of the film harkens back to the scifi/monster pics of a bygone era. Ang Lee paced the story in a such way that there were big deliberate build-ups to whenever the Hulk was unleashed. (Corollary: lots of slow parts used for character development.) Danny Elfman's musical composition certainly enhanced the atmosphere with his twingy notes of dread. I don't know if Mr. Lee was the first director who's done this, but I liked the way he incorporated comic book elements (e.g. multiple panels) to split the action onscreen and keep the audiences grounded to source of the movie material.
CGI has certainly gone a long way, and at least for me, I found the CG Hulk to be very well made, especially his face that has more emotions programmed in than Keanu Reeve's. The muscle transformations, I'm a bit sorry to say, weren't as homoerotic as I would have liked them to be. Much too fast to enjoy; guess I'll have to wait for the DVD to slow things down. I think it couldn't have hurt for Eric Bana to show off his naked bod a bit more.
Ironically, Hulk has more "brains" than "brawn". Not only do we get a scientific basis on why he turns green, but also a psychoanalytical examination of his personality. That's not to say there weren't a lot of juicy scenes with the Hulk showing off his devastating strength, but I appreciated that the movie was as much about the Man as it was about the Monster.
And we're back...
Rather than waste my time ruminating over the past, I decided not to let this opportunity of relaunching the site on its first-year anniversary. I only wish I had something more to offer today, but I'm just glad to be posting again. (Are you?) Other regular features like Stories I'm Reading and my reviews will resume shortly.
Before we get to the updates, I would like to thank a bunch of people who've helped me out with this site one way or the other. For starters, thanks to Alan, Aphex, Chad, Changes, metabods, Simon, and Tom for hosting some of my older stories on and, more importantly, maintaining their respective sites.
A big thanks goes out to my contributors--chester (and, in absentia, magister), copsucker_99, fucil99, sunfiregod, WolfPek, and zulator-- for all their wonderful works, and I hope that you guys know how much we, your loyal readers, love your stuff. Keep 'em cumming!
I'd like to mention cicero, hyptrance, Ikaika, timewatch, and wrestlr for their very much-appreciated virtual company, and a special thanks to jockmorphr for... well... he knows what for.
Last, I'd like to thank you--yes, you sitting in front of your screen--for sticking around and/or coming back. It's nice to know that there are so many people out there who are in the same crazy things I am. Makes the world a little less lonely to live in.
Well, th-th-that's all folks, and I hope to see you again next week. Y'all come back now, y'hear!?
