Anders Nilsen in Vancouver Tonight

Last West Coast stop! Anders will be launching Big Questions at the venerable Lucky's Comics tonight.

Reading, slideshow, and book signing: Sunday July 31st, 7 PM at Lucky's Comics, 3972 Main St., Vancouver.

Finally, as you'll note in the poster above, do not worry, dear readers, because this epic tour continues (after a brief pause).

The Eagle Has Landed.

Rebecca at Just me... requested that we review some World Wars II movies so here is the review for The Eagle Has Landed.

If you have seen the movie please give it any score from 1 to 10.

Directed by: John Sturges
Genre: War, Suspense, Spy
Release date: December 1976
Running Time: 145 minutes
MMPA rating: PG

The Good: Very original plot, Good acting,

The Bad: Starts slow,

Plot: Inspired by the rescue of Hitler's ally Benito Mussolini by Otto Skorzeny, a similar idea is considered by Hitler, with the support of Himmler (Donald Pleasence). Admiral Canaris (Anthony Quayle), head of the Abwehr (German military intelligence), is ordered to make a feasibility study of the seemingly impossible task of capturing the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and bringing him to Germany.
Canaris considers the idea a joke, but realizes that although Hitler will soon forget the matter, Himmler will not. Fearing Himmler may try to discredit him, Canaris orders one of his officers, Oberst Radl (Robert Duvall) to undertake the study, despite feeling that it is a waste of time.
An Unteroffizier on Radl's staff finds that one of their spies, code named Starling, has provided tantalizing intelligence - Winston Churchill is to visit an airfield near the village of Studley Constable in Norfolk, where Joanna Grey (Jean Marsh), a German sleeper agent lives. Radl comes up with a scheme that could work. Himmler summons Radl and unofficially tells him to proceed, without notifying Canaris. Radl then recruits Liam Devlin (Donald Sutherland), a member of the IRA lecturing at a Berlin university, to the mission.
Radl looks for a suitable officer to lead the mission and chances upon the highly decorated and experienced, but conflicted and anti-Nazi, Fallschirmjäger officer Oberst Kurt Steiner (Michael Caine). While returning from the Eastern Front, Steiner intervened when SS soldiers rounded up Jews at a railway station in Poland, and attempted to save the life of a teenage girl who was shot while trying to escape. For this, he was court-martialled, along with a platoon of his men. Rather than face the firing squad, the men were allowed to transfer to a penal unit on the Channel Island of Alderney, where they made high risk attacks with torpedo boats against British channel convoys.
Radl travels to Alderney and, with the help of Devlin, recruits Steiner and his surviving men. The team will parachute into England from a captured C-47 with Allied markings. The commandos outfit themselves as Polish paratroopers, as few of them speak English. The plan is to infiltrate Studley Constable, complete their mission, rendezvous with an E-boat on the nearby coast and escape.

Plot: 8.5/10- The plot is very original but start slowly.

Action: 7.0/10- The Eagle Has Landed had some good action but would have been better if it had a little more.

Acting: Donald Sutherland and Michael Caine gave very good performances.

Special effects: N/A-

Soundtrack: 7.1/10- It had a good soundtrack but not very memorable.

Comedy: 7.8/10- Some very funny Kelly's Heroes like scenes with Larry Hagman.

Overall: The Eagle Has Landed is a good movie despite its a slow start.

Closing comments: The Eagle Has Landed is good movie that you should see if you have any interest in WWII or Suspense movies.

Recommended for: Suspense movie fans, WWII movie fans, War movie fans,

Defiance review.

Rebecca at Just me... requested that we review some World Wars II movies so here is the review for Defiance.

If you have seen the movie please give it any score from 1 to 10.

Directed by: Edward Zwick
Genre: War
Release date: December 31, 2008
Running Time: 137 minutes
MMPA rating: R

The Good: A very interesting plot based on a true story, Good action scene at the end, A very realistic take on WWII Eastern Europe.

The Bad: Many of the actors' accents are not consistent,

Plot: The film opens with on-screen text stating: "A true story". It is August 1941 and Nazi forces are sweeping through Eastern Europe, targeting Jewish people. Among the survivors not killed or restricted to ghettoes are the Bielski brothers, who are Jews: Tuvia (Daniel Craig), Zus (Liev Schreiber), Asael (Jamie Bell), and Aron (George MacKay). Their parents are dead, slain by the local police under orders from the occupying Germans. The brothers flee to the Białowieża Forest, vowing to avenge their parents.
They then encounter other Jewish escapees hiding in the forest and the brothers take them under their protection and leadership. Over the next year, they shelter a growing number of refugees, raiding local farms for food and supplies, moving their camp whenever they are discovered by the collaborating police. Tuvia kills the local police chief responsible for his parents' deaths and the brothers stage raids on the Germans and their collaborators; however, Jewish casualties cause Tuvia to reconsider this approach because of the resulting risk to the hiding Jews. A long-time sibling rivalry between the two eldest brothers, Tuvia and Zus, fuels a disagreement between them about their future. As winter approaches, Zus elects to leave his brothers and the camp and join a local company of Soviet partisans, while his older brother Tuvia remains with the camp as their leader. An arrangement is made between the two groups in which the Soviet partisans agree to protect the Jewish camp in exchange for supplies.

Plot: 8.3/10- A very interesting plot based on true story.

Action: 7.9/10- Nothing we haven't seen before but it had a good bit action.

Acting: 8.1/10- Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber were very good in this movie.

Special effects: N/A- There weren't other than the standard gunfire effects.

Soundtrack: 6.8/10- Not a bad soundtrack but it get the job done.

Comedy: N/A

Overall: 8.0/10- Overall Defiance is a good realistic war movie.

Closing comments: Defiance is a that you should see if you have any interest in WWII.

Recommended for: WWII movie fans, Daniel Craig fans, War movie fans.

West Coast Love for Big Questions

I know we've been talking a lot about Big Questions over the past few weeks but, hey, we aren't the only ones blabbing about how amazing it is. Head on over to the Stranger where Paul Constant compares Big Questions to a mash-up of Peanuts and Lord of the Rings, and calls the epic "the best—and definitely the most original—comic of 2011."

I agree, Paul. I agree.

As Julia mentioned below, Anders is in Portland tonight; he will be in Seattle tomorrow at the Fantagraphics store at 6 pm.

Floating World hosts Anders Nilsen and BIG QUESTIONS

Tonight! Friday July 29th, 6 pm at Floating World Comics, 20 NW 5th Ave #101, Portland.

Anders Nilsen will be presenting his slideshow, doing a reading, answering questions, and signing books. I hear he'll also have stacks of these trading cards with him.

I know I've been blabbing about this for days now, but there's a darn good reason for that - Big Questions represents a decade of philosophically rich meditations on life, explorations conducted by one of the most talented visual artists around. Every line he draws, every word he writes, it all just works. Anyway, the point is, be at Floating World tonight!

X-Men 3: The Last Stand review

The Good: Lots of action, Same great cast as the others, Really good special effects,Massive epic battle at the end of the movie, Magneto is a great villain, Perfect ending.

The Bad:To many new characters are introduced and not developed.

Another flashback to "ten years ago" shows a young Warren Worthington (aka Angel) as he tries to cut off his wings.
Back in present time, the pharmaceutical company Worthington Labs announces it has developed an inoculation to suppress the X-gene that gives mutants their powers and makes them different from other humans, offering the "cure" to any mutant who wants it. While some mutants are interested in the cure, including the X-Men's Rogue, but many others are horrified by the announcement. In response to the news, the X-Men's adversary Magneto raises an army, warning his followers that the "cure" will be forcefully used to exterminate the mutant race.
Cyclops, still depressed about the loss of Jean Grey, returns to Alkali Lake were Jean disappeared. Jean appears to Cyclops, but as the two kiss, Jean takes on a fearsome appearance. Psychically sensing trouble, Charles Xavier sends Wolverine and Storm to investigate the disturbance. When they arrive, the two X-Men encounter telekinetically floating rocks, Cyclops' glasses, and an unconscious Jean. Cyclops himself is nowhere to be found. Xavier explains that when Jean sacrificed herself, she unleashed the powerful alternate personality she calls "Phoenix". Wolverine is disgusted to learn that Xavier has kept Jean in check telepathically, but when Jean awakens, he realizes she is not the Jean Grey he knew. Jean pleads with Wolverine to kill her, but when he refuses, the Phoenix surfaces and telekinetically slams Wolverine into a wall. She then escapes to her childhood home.
Magneto, also aware that Jean is now a powerful mutant, meets Xavier at Jean's house. The two men vie for Jean's loyalty until the Phoenix resurfaces, unleashing her devastating power. Watch the movie to see what happens next.

Science fiction Meme day 28 Favorite piece of Memorabilia.

We do not own any memorabilia.

SDCC photo explosion

First, I am going to subject you to a little tour of the D+Q SDCC BOOTH THROUGHOUT THE AGES (er, past three years).




Check it out! Posters all the same size, enormous trash pile nearly gone... We're really starting to figure it out. Now if we could only remember to wear proper footwear, we'd be set.

Speaking of proper footwear, did you know that Chester Brown always signs standing up? Not only that, but he signs for like five hours at a time and NEVER COMPLAINS. It's incredible. I think the rest of us all start complaining the second we get behind the booth or even before. Not Chet. Nope.

Brian Ralph and Anders Nilsen decided to meet Chester's challenge, though they don't look quite as happy about it. Was this before or after Chester's banner fell on Brian? Who can remember.

Tom decides to try out his new comedy routine while supposedly acting as moderator on the "Epic Literary Adventures" panel, to mixed results.

(Anders, let's talk.)

Brian Lee O'Malley and Hope Larson stop by the booth; Peter matches his outfits to the books (this day was Moomin.)

(Peggy made us delete the pics of the Paying For It day)

American Elf goes in a new direction

This is what nightmares are made of. (I'm, of course, not speaking about Eli Kochalka here, but, rather, his enormous, surly smurf friend. What, you don't see him? If you'll look, he's just behind the bridge. Ah yes, right. There.)

Aww look at these cuties celebrating their tenth anniversary in the Bone twentieth anniversary photo booth!

(I can call my bosses "cuties," right? HM?)

Maybe that'll be us in ten years. WHO KNOWS.

OK, seriously, what is going on in there?

Ah, perhaps the blurriness of this, the only pic we actually took, might give a clue as to what was going on.

Moving on...

Mary Fleener stops by the booth!

Here's a pic of Chester's spotlight panel. I can't really think of a joke here, so can I just take a moment to talk about how great CCI is for continually taking care of us (relative to the rest of the con) "little guys?" Jackie Estrada, Gary Sassaman and their whole crew make sure that, as Comic Con grows perhaps increasingly inclusive of other aspects of pop culture, comics remain at the core of what the show is about, and it's clear that the medium is something that they all feel passionately about and promote whole-heartedly. Thanks so much, guys!

Chester is the proud recipient of a surprise Inkpot award! And deservedly so.

Calvin Reid and his wife, Jody Culkin, along with Chester, genuinely laughing at the Eisners (see what you're missing, naysayers?!). Probably (though not definitely as there were several funny parts), due to this man:

Ladies and Gentlemen, the one and only Jonathan Ross! Jonathan stopped by the booth on a few separate occasions, and, while he may be lesser-known across the pond, he's a HUGE celebrity in the UK (and a huge Chester Brown fan).

I swear to god, minutes after this photo was taken, a young British couple came up to me completely star-struck, barely able to speak for just having seen him. I kid you not, they were crying. CRYING.

Oh sure, he may look all "dark," "mysterious," and "sexy" now, but, please keep in mind that this is the same man who said "Mama likey" when a steampunk Sherlock Holmes walked by the booth earlier in the day.

Joyce Farmer gets her copy of Paying For It, mentioning that the literal spanish translation of Special Exits means "having a hooker for the evening." Chester casually jots it down.

By this point, you've all read Special Exits, her recent memoir from Fantagraphics? It's wonderful. We all talked about it in the office for a week after it came out. I would, however, not recommend reading it in public like I did, as it's a tear-jerker.

Actually, for that matter, I don't know that I'd read Paying For It in public, either, though for different reasons...

John Heder stops by the booth! Minutes later, he would leave the booth, apparently upset by our request to "do that thing where you breathe through your mouth."

How jealous are you of this bound copy of all of the issues of Yummy Fur?

Seriously! This is so awesome.

Even Chester was impressed. I didn't get to see it in person, but he was so taken by it that he brought it up later.

And, now, time for a quick stop-over at the Fantagraphics booth.

Why, yes, that IS Fantagraphics employee "Ajax" dressed as Johnny Ryan's "Cannibal Fuckface."

I kid you not, my camera ACTUALLY STARTED SMOKING when I took this picture.

Chester and his very sweet handler, Maria!

Judah Friedlander was SO PLEASED to hear all my great 30 Rock suggestions. Well, I mean, he didn't say as much, but I'm pretty sure that his face here gives that away. Right? RIGHT?

And, finally, while Tom may have "edited down" our SDCC photos, we still ended up with these gems. What's going on? Don't ask me.

OK, we're walking. Good.

Really couldn't tell you.

Ah yes, this was after Brian lost his shoes in the ocean. Somehow. Later, he would step on a cockroach.

With Love,
Drawn & Quarterly

X-Men (2000) the movie review.

Saxon at A Knight's Quest requested we review X-Men: First Class but we have not seen it yet so we decided to review X-Men(2000) the first movie in the X-Men series.

If you have seen the movie please give it any score from 1 to 10.

Directed by: Bryan Singer
Genre: Action Adventure, Comic Book,
Release date: July 14, 2000 (2000-07-14)
Running Time: 104 minutes
MMPA rating: PG-13

The Good: Lots of action, Patrick Stewart was the perfect choice for Professor X, Hugh Jackman was the perfect choice for Wolverine, Famke Janssen was a great chocie for Jean Grey, Ian McKellen was the perfect chocie for Magneto, Great casting, Really good special effects, Great beginning to a great franchise, Magneto is a great villain,

The Bad: Cyclops was very under developed.

The film starts in a concentration camp in Germany-occupied Poland in 1944 as a young boy is being separated from his parents upon entry to the concentration camp. When he tries to get back after the gates close, he is restrained by numerous guards whom he easily overpowers as they are sliding towards the gate, which is also curling towards them, as though attracted by a magnetic force. The boy is soon knocked out cold by one of the guards. Jumping to modern day, a girl named Marie runs away from her home in Meridian, Mississippi after almost killing her boyfriend after kissing him.
In Congress, Senator Robert Kelly attempts to pass a "Mutant Registration Act", which would force mutants to publicly reveal their identities and abilities. Magneto begins his plans to level the playing field between mutants and humans. Meanwhile, Marie (aka Rogue) meets Logan (aka Wolverine) in Canada. Rogue's mutation makes her temporarily assume the powers of any mutant she touches while Wolverine possesses superhuman healing abilities, heightened senses, and claws that extend from his knuckles. Suddenly, both of them are attacked by Sabretooth, a mutant and associate of Magneto. Cyclops and Storm arrive and save Wolverine & Rogue and bring them to the X-Mansion. Professor Charles Xavier runs the facility, and leads a group of mutants who are trying to seek peace with the human race, educate young mutants in the responsible use of their powers, and stop Magneto from starting a war with humanity.
Abducted by Mystique and Toad, Senator Kelly is brought to Magneto, who tests a machine on him that artificially induces mutation though Kelly manages to escape imprisonment with his new abilities. After an accident causes Rogue to use her powers on Wolverine, she is convinced by Mystique (disguised as Bobby Drake) that Xavier is angry with her and that she should leave the school. Xavier uses Cerebro to locate Rogue at a train station. Mystique infiltrates Cerebro and sabotages the Cerebro. At the train station, Wolverine convinces Rogue to stay with Xavier but a fight ensues when Magneto, Toad and Sabretooth arrive to take Rogue. Watch the movie to what happens next.

Recommended for: Comic Book movie fans, Superhero movie fans, Action movie fans, Patrick Stewart fans, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen fans.

The Green Hornet review.

This is the review for The Green Hornet. Because The Green Hornet is a comedy we are going to score it a little differently in the "Comedy" section of the review it is score on how funny the movie is compared to other comedies but in a review for an action movie the "Comedy" section is the amount of comedy in the movie. Here is an example if an action movie get a score of 9.0 in the "Comedy" section and a comedy movie gets an 8.0 it doesn't mean that the action movie is funnier it just means that the action is has some really funny parts in the for an action movie. The overall score for a comedy is relative to other coemdies. Example: A comedy gets a overall score of an 8.4/10 and an non-comedy gets a score of 7.8/10 it doesn't mean the comedy is better when comparing them. If you have any questions about this please post a comment.

If you have seen the movie please give it any score from 1 to 10.

Directed by: Michel Gondry
Genre: Action Comedy, Superhero, Comic Book.
Release date: January 14, 2011
Running Time: 108 minutes
MMPA rating: PG-13

The Good: Very funny, Some cool Matrix inspired fight scenes, Awesome gadgets, Cool cars,

The Bad: Not the most original plot,

Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) is the irresponsible, 28-year-old slacker son of widower James Reid (Tom Wilkinson), publisher of the Los Angeles newspaper The Daily Sentinel. Britt's attitude changes when James is found dead from an allergic reaction to a bee sting. After the funeral, Britt fires the staff aside from his maid, but later re-hires Kato (Jay Chou), James' mechanic and a skilled martial artist.
Britt and Kato get them selves drunk together and, upon agreeing that they both hated James Reid, visit the graveyard to cut the head off James Reid's memorial statue. After they succeed, they rescue a nearby couple being mugged. When police mistake Britt and Kato themselves for criminals, Kato evades them in a car chase as he and Britt make they way to the mansion.
Britt convinces Kato they should become crime-fighters who pose as criminals in order to infiltrate real criminals, and to prevent enemies from using innocents against them. Kato develops a car outfitted with several gadgets and weapons, which they call the Black Beauty. Britt plans to capture Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz), a Russian mobster uniting the criminal families of Los Angeles under his command, and whom his father was trying to expose. To get Chudnofsky's attention, Britt uses the Daily Sentinel as a vehicle to publish articles about the "high-profile criminal" the Green Hornet.
Britt then hires Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), who has a degree in criminology, as his assistant and researcher, and uses her unwitting advice to raise the Green Hornet's profile. Britt and Kato blow up several of Chudnofsky's meth labs, leaving calling cards so Chudnofsky can contact them. Throughout all this, Daily Sentinel managing editor Mike Axford (Edward James Olmos) fears that this single-minded coverage will endanger Britt's life, and District Attorney Frank Scanlon (David Harbour) frets over the public perception that he cannot stop the Green Hornet. Watch the movie to see what happens next.

Plot: 6.7/10- Not the most original plot for a superhero movie but it get the job done

Action: 8.0/10- Some cool actions scenes and some other action scenes used for comedic effect.

Acting: 7.4/10- Surprisingly good acting for a comedy.

Special effects: 7.1/10- Some explodsions and other effects, The Black Beauty( name of a car) looked cool and so did the gadgets.

Soundtrack: 5.8/10- Nothing special.

Comedy: 8.4/10- The Green Hornet is a very funny movie with comedy through out.

Overall: 7.6/10- The Green Hornet is a very funny action comedy with some good action.

Closing comments: If you are looking for a good action this year comedy this might be the movie for you.

True Grit (2010) review.

True Grit (2010) is a remake of the John Wayne classic True Grit (1969) which is our favorite western of alltime.

If you have seen the movie please give it any score from 1 to 10.

Directed by:Joel and Ethan Coen
Genre: Western, Action Adventure
Release date: December 22, 2010 (2010-12-22)
Running Time: 111 minutes
MMPA rating: PG-13

The Good: Similar to the original in a good way, Best western is a long time, Jeff Bridges was a good choice for Rooster Cogburn,

The Bad: Changed the epic fight scene at the end, Not as good as the originsl but what could.

The film is narrated by the adult Mattie Ross (Elizabeth Marvel), who explains that her father was murdered by one of his hired hands, Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), when she was 14. Chaney made off with her father's horse and his two California gold pieces.
While collecting her father's body, 14-year old Mattie (Hailee Steinfeld) queries the local sheriff about the search for Chaney. After being told that Chaney has fled into the Indian Territory and that the sheriff has no authority to track a fugitive there, she inquires about hiring a Deputy U.S. Marshal. The sheriff gives three recommendations, and Mattie chooses to hire Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), as he is described as having "true grit." The gruff, one-eyed Cogburn repeatedly rebuffs her attempts to talk with him. She offers him $50, but he doesn't believe she has the money and refuses. She raises the money by aggressively horse-trading with Colonel Stonehill (Dakin Matthews), who did business with her father.
Meanwhile, Texas Ranger LaBoeuf (Matt Damon) arrives on the trail of Chaney. LaBoeuf has been pursuing him for the murder of a state senator in Texas. After meeting Mattie, he proposes that he team up with Cogburn, who knows the Choctaw terrain where Chaney is hiding, while LaBoeuf knows how Chaney is most likely to behave, but Mattie refuses his offer. After finally securing Cogburn's services for $100, Mattie insists on meeting him the following morning to begin the search for Chaney. However, instead of meeting her, Cogburn leaves a train ticket and a note telling Mattie to go home while he apprehends Chaney.
Refused passage on the ferry that conveyed Cogburn and LaBoeuf, Mattie's horse swims her across the river. Cogburn reluctantly allows her to come, to LaBoeuf's displeasure. Watch the movie to see what happens next.
