New York Comic Con

With events like the Panda Cosplay Party and “The Avengers” panel session with Chris Evans and Tom Hiddleston it’s no wonder event organizers are expecting over 100,000 attendees at the 2011 New York Comic Con, which runs from October 13-16. The east coast popular culture convention will run in conjunction with the New York Anime Festival but is not affiliated with San Diego Comic Con.

Thursday’s “kick-off concert” will feature guitarist Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and DJ Z-Trip. »

Video of the Day: A Montage of Cinema’s Worst Writing Cliches

16 June 2011 9:52 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

Cliché: a phrase, expression, or idea that has been overused to the point of losing its intended force or novelty, especially when at some time it was considered distinctively forceful or novel.

With Hollywood producing so many movies ever year, it is no surprise that they are often full of clichés. Jeff Smith created this montage under the Bottoms Up Productions label for acclaimed movie blog FilmDrunk.com, showing clips of some of the biggest movie clichés from a total of 102 films. The list of films are below the video. Enjoy!

Most Overused Line Ever: 'You Just Don't Get It, Do You?'

6 June 2011 12:00 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Seems like the inebriated geniuses over at FilmDrunk are on a roll… or is that a bender? After recently taking on the ridiculous overuse of "Jack" and "Rose" in "Titanic," they've set their sites on a hoary old chestnut: "You just don't get it, do you?"

You might have heard that once or twice in your day-to-day life, but with their new video editor Jeff Smith has found more than 100 films that use the line, and the eight-minute video does not get old due to the sheer odd assortment of random flicks they've used.

Due to their tireless, obsessive search they've shown the clichéd phrase spans everything from action, drama, comedy, animation, arty foreign flicks, badly-dubbed Asian crime movies, etc. No movie is immune, regardless of quality, be it The Rock in "Tooth Fairy" or Charlie Sheen in Best Picture-winner "Platoon." There's just no cure for not getting' it.

The ongoing black & white, independent comic book series "Rasl", created by Jeff Smith in 2008, has now been set for development with producer Lionel Wigram ("Sherlock Holmes").

The comic book series follows art thief 'Rasl', who jumps to parallel universes in attempts to steal parallel paintings, but soon runs into dangerous scenarios as he is pursued by the government.

Written/drawn in a 'sci-fi noir' style, "Rasl" draws influences from real life events, people and places in addition to Southwestern Native American culture and hardboiled crime fiction.

The central story is narrated extensively through Rasl's thoughts, providing flashbacks to tell the story of his past.
