The Colonel's Bullets - March 19th 2011

RoboCop statue update

The group intending to erect the statue have got the funding and have confirmed that moulds, materials and the artists and craftsmen needed to accomplish the statue are almost ready.

RoboCop star Peter Weller released this wacky video for Funny or Die:

Wonder Woman

Warner Bros. have released an image of Adrianne Palicki in her ultra-reflective Wonder Woman costume. I have little interest in the project as it's produced by David E. Kelly who [with the exception of Boston Legal] only makes TV shows for women. However I'm glad that they havn't made the new stupid jacket as part of the costume.

The Wolverine

Darren Aranofski, the untalanted director of Black Swan will now not direct The Wolverine. I had no interest in seeing what he was going to do with Hugh Jackman and a character who admittadly disn't get the best treatment in the past two movies he appeared in, but at least now I can begin an intrest in the movie as Aranofski will not be behind the lens.

Michael Gough R.I.P.

Michael Gough, the British character actor best known for his role as Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce Wayne’s trusted, ever-available butler in the four Batman movies between 1989 and 1997, died Thursday at his home in England. He was 94.

But in an acting career that spanned seven decades, Gough also had roles in more than 150 movies, television shows and stage productions. Last year he supplied the voice of the Dodo Bird in the Tim Burton movie Alice in Wonderland.

"David E. Kelly who can only make TV shows for women", Careful Colonel Mr.Kelly gave us Boston Legal, that's means you own him for the great Denny Craine or are you saying that Denny is not an example of a great American?

I prefer the drawing of the new WW get up to the reality. I also wonder if the new WW has had plastic surgery... She looks a bit to much like someone whose company you would pay for.

and on that note, my word verification is bedbi, reminding me that it is indeed time for beddy bye.

Connie, the reality?, you do know she's only a comic book character, she doesn't actually exist. Did your parents not have this conversation with you?, it's simply really, what's outside your head is reality what's inside your head is make believe. ;)

As for paying her, whatever do you mean?

@ Civvy: You're right of course. Denny Crane is one of the people I aspire to be like. I stand corrected and admit I am in error. The post has been altered.

Also, Constance is suggesting that to her, the new Wonder Woman looks like a sex-worker. Did your parents not have this conversation with you?

Good to know Peter Weller appreciates the role that made him.

Civilian Overseer said...

Colonel, as long as you acknowledge the greatness that is Denny Craine then all is forgiven.

As for that conversation, well, shucks, as my folks raised me to be the moral, upstanding pillar of the community that I am, no, they did not. I'm afraid I lack yours and evidently Connie's understanding of the seedier side of life. Frankly, I'm surprised at you Colonel. ;)

Grunt, Peter Who?
