It was entertaining, and Ledger was amazing as The Joker. But in the end, it was a let down for me. Mainly because, even more than Begins, this just didn't feel like a Batman film. When you have a boatload of criminals that won't push the button of a boatload of civilians, then you don't have Gotham...

What more can I say about "Wall*E"?

It was my favorite film of the year, by a long shot. I think it's Pixar's best to date.

I enjoyed "Quantum". Not as much as "Casino", which I loved, but it was a nice coda to that film.

My first impression, based on the trailer? While the trailer was visually amazing, it feels more like fans pretending to be the characters, rather than actors playing the characters. They look like very impressive Comic-Con attendees. It's almost similar to the way I felt about Ledger's Joker when I...

I actually liked this one. It should have been released as individual epiodes, but it was fun seeing it in the theater.

I looooooove the TV series, though.

Some of Carpenter's work is really underrated. I think "Starman" is one of the great love stories of the 80s.

The Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Japan. It's amazing.

My wife and I were married in Tokyo last December. I can't wait to go back.

It was my favorite film of 2005. But if I had to choose between that version and the BBC mini-series with Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth, I'd have to go with the latter.

Looks great! How many pages is the book and how much will you be selling it for?

Maybe I'll pick one up in San Diego. :)

Hey Otis, it's good to see you hanging out around here again. I'll definitely stop by to hang out at the Viper booth. Congrats on your second book! :D Thanks, Kazu. Hopefully we can actually meet this year. I keep missing you, since I run back and forth between Artist Alley. I'm looking forward to ...

Rear Window - Hitchcock's best, most visually interesting film. The story is told in visuals like no other film I've seen. A strong reminder of the "show, don't tell" axiom. Star Wars - World building at its best and a great example of using familiar archetypes in new ways. It also has a wonderful M...
