Abrams Apologizes for the Lens Flares…

Love it. Hate it. But J.J. Abrams apologizes for the lens flares in the Star Trek movies.

I know I get a lot of grief for that,” says Abrams. “But I’ll tell you, there are times when I’m working on a shot, I think, ‘Oh this would be really cool… with a lens flare.’ But I know it’s too much, and I apologize. I’m so aware of it now. I was showing my wife an early cut of Star Trek Into Darkness and there was this one scene where she was literally like, ‘I just can’t see what’s going on. I don’t understand what that is.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, I went too nuts on this.'” “This is how stupid it was,” J.J. Abrams added. “I actually had to use ILM [Industrial Light & Magic] to remove lens flare in a couple of shots, which is, I know, moronic. But I think admitting you’re an addict is the first step towards recovery.

Personally? I didn’t mind them. Even liked them. I thought they added an atmosphere to the movies. But that’s just me, and I’m pretty sure I’m in the minority on that. But still nice to hear filmmakers respond to the fans like this.

Oh Hell Yes ’22 Jumpstreet’ is Happening!


21 Jumpstreet was EASILY my favorite comedy that year! I couldn’t remember the last time I laughed that hard. And looks like the cast and crew are back in production, picking up where the first movie left off…

…the cops are going to college.

22 Jumpstreet  hits theatres on, June 13, 2014. And I personally CAN. NOT. WAIT!

GOTHAM Coming to FOX


Well, while we wait for Batman to come back in the next Man of Steel movie, looks like FOX is gonna keep us hungry for that world with a direct-to-series order for Gotham.

Reportedly this will be more of a prequel to the whole Batman mythology, focusing on the city, and specifically everyone’s favorite cop, Jim Gordan. So don’t expect Bats to show up anytime soon in the series. But still, this sounds pretty awesome.

No word yet as to when it will premiere.

Doing our best to give you that Geek-Love rash from the interwebs!
