Amazing Spider-Man 700 is the ending that’s still trending.

Quentin Tarantino Planning Django Unchained And inglourious Basterds Spin-Off, Killer Crow

It’s safe to say Quentin Tarantino isn’t a fan of John Ford, and it all seems to hinge on just one of his film making decisions. An acting one, in fact. The decision to play a Klansman in DW Griffith’s hideously racist Birth of a Nation.

Um… An Apology

There used to be an article here. What I thought was an interesting juxtaposition. However too many other people saw something else.

Dan Slott Breaks The Internet In Half. Literally

Every now and then, someone says, “This will break the internet in half” or some other great piece of hyperbole. I can say this with a straight face — and not an ounce of shame or showmanship — this is the biggest damn thing I’ve ever done with any character in any story I’ve ever worked on.
