Thursday News

Well, I heard on the radio today that the NHL is in the midst of planning another outdoor game. That's very cool. You may remember the first outdoor game...2003's Heritage Classic, played between the Oilers and the Canadiens at Commonwealth Stadium.

Yes, even I watched the Heritage Classic on TV. The commentators had fun speculating on what else the NHL could do for outdoor games. The New York Rangers and the New York Islanders in Central Park...the Maple Leafs and the Senators on the Rideau Canal....

In still early in the planning stages, so we've got no idea yet what its going to be.

Well, the ol' double dip is happening to The Lord of the Rings.

On August 29th, New Line is going to be releasing brand-new Limited Editions of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

Disc 1 will contain both the theatrical versions and the extended edtions. Disc 2 will contain a brand-new feature-lenght documentary about the making of the film.

Wow. In order to get that whole 4-hour Return of the King: Extended Edition on one DVD, picture quality will probably be lower.

And the latest movie rumour out of Hollywood today.

Matt Damon as Captain Kirk!

As we all know Alias creator and Mission: Impossible III director JJ Abrams is hard at work on making a new Star Trek film, and Abrams is apparently dead set on having Damon play the young James T. Kirk. Rumor has it that Abrams has already gotten William Shatner's blessing.

I don't know about this...I just hope we get a good movie.
