House is coming to an end...kind of sad because even though the show may have run it's course. They really tried to be a different kind of medical show and won top marks for it in my book.

The Jackie Brown Pre-qual sounds terrible. I've never even heard of the white guy and while I really like Mos Def, he's not someone I would pick to place a younger Ordell. Especially after Sam Jackson solid performance.

Excited for the First Class sequel. Especially if this is happening
with Magneto assassinating JFK.
Having never really followed X-Men, this seems extremely interesting.

Set pictures of Django Unchained is nothing to write home about but I'm still extremely interested.

Interested in Body Thief but all the previous Anne Rice adaptions weren't that great, so my expectations are low.

Also very happy Paradise Lost was shut down. I couldn't see Bradley Cooper as Lucifer.

And a Showtime series with Lizzy Caplan and Michael Sheen? Love it.

Why on earth would they touch RoboCop? Such a bad fucking idea.

Django stills just got me more excited then I already was. So stoked for this.
