Just forget the words and sing along

I guess we can start worrying.

The first reviews for Fantastic Four are starting to come out, and they're not good. So far, the most positive thing I'm reading is, "Well, at least it's better than Elektra." It essentially boils down to a weak plot and weak characters. The nerd reviews are saying that Human Torch is the only one they got right, while Dr. Doom comes off far too much like Green Goblin in Spider-Man.

The curious thing is that they're telling us the entire Thing/Alicia Masters romance got cut. And here we were, seeing all these behind the scenes shots of Alicia's art studio and all that. Guess they're saving all that for the "unrated director's cut" DVD.

Oh, well. It was a nice ride while it lasted

I like this one.

MTV UK just ran a poll to find out what the top customized cars from TV were. #1 was KITT, the talking car from Knight Rider. Who could forget KITT, with its turbo boost and that really cool red light thingie on the front? The rest of the top 5 is as follows:

2) The Batmobile (didn't say which one)
3) James Bond's Aston Martin DB5
4) The deLorean time machine from Back to the Future
5) Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

And we have another victory for the relentless march of fast food restaurants as they expand across the globe!

China's very first Burger King just opened up in Shanghai.

As is the case with fast food restaurants across the globe, there are some items unique to Burger King China that cater to Chinese tastes. For example, they have a burger topped with "mala sauce," a spicy condumint popular in southwest China.

And, in this morning's Star Trek: the Next Generation re-run, I watched the classic episode The Pegasus. This episode has gained new noteriety in Trekkie circles as it now also functions as the subplot of Enterprise's final episode These Are The Voyages.... I wonder how long until someone edits the two episodes together.
