If anyone that reads this blog is a fan of the popular 80's movie "Ghostbusters" they may be happy to know, as I know I am that a third movie may begin shooting this winter. According to an LA Times interview, Dan Aykroyd has begun working on the new film and has expressed an interest in seeing either Eliza Dushku or Alyssa Milano as part of a new "Ghostbusters" crew. As the writer of this blog I personally wouldn't mind either one of these two actresses going from the TV screen to the big screen. both of them come from the horror genre. Alyssa co-starred in the hit series "Charmed" and Eliza had a recurring role Faith on the Joss Whedon cult classic "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" series and now plays Echo on the Fox series "Dollhouse" which she co-produces. I think either of them would be great and lets hope Mr Aykroyd keeps one of these two choices. I think I will Miss Dushku about this news bit and see what happens. Never know, she might respond.
There Is A Fox In The Dollhouse For Another Season
Wow, it worked! I asked for someone to talk to Fox Network and bring back "Dollhouse" and it worked. Ok maybe it wasn't me, but I would like to think so. Maybe the network finally figured out it might have a hit in its Friday night lineup(death slot). Congrats to Joss and Eliza on "Dollhouse" being picked up for a 13 episode second season. Also I want to thank NBC for bringing back every nerds and /or geeks favorite product placement show “Chuck” I know it took some finagling between the network and the creators of the show and we might have to give up some of the Buy More stuff but, at least we get a new season. The studio did push the new season back almost 10 months but at least we get our show back. Lets keep supporting these shows so that we can get more shows like them. Way to go everyone, keep up the good work all of you Doll Babies, Nerd Herders, Brown Coats.
Dollhouse Trying To Stay Standing On Fox Friday Nights
The most recent series by Joss Whedon and co produced by the beautiful and very talented Eliza Dushku “Dollhouse” seems to be working with the Fox Network to come back for a second and hopefully longer season. Eliza told her tweeter fans that negotiations are still ongoing with the network. I had the pleasure of watching this very original show, which started off a little slow, but quickly picked up pace becoming a had to watch series on Friday nights. Fox was a little gun shy at first, giving the series only 13 episodes to prove itself and I thought they did the job well. The show was not brainless entertainment networks seem to be pushing ( like Top Model) but a show you had to think about episode to episode. Dollhouse makes its fans question the ethics they believe in when asking the questions of if it is right to erase a person’s memory and implant new memories and personalities or to become the slave of a corporation or those in charge. I doubt Fox Network looks or even know about my blog, but if they do, or if someone knows someone in charge of programming there just ask them to give a good show like Dollhouse a chance to find their audience and build a bigger fan base.

Wolverine Shreds The Critics
Well as usual the critics were wrong again. X-Men Origins Wolverine slashed the competition at the box office, bringing in just over 135 million dollars in its first weekend which is great for the studio and even better for the fans, who will be glad to know that another Wolverine movie is already being planned. The studio has found a pot of gold with turning comics we grew up with into great movies that allow us to forget our problems and escape into another universe for a few hours. Speaking of universes, the next big studio release will be the premiere this weekend of J.J. Abrams new telling of the story “Star Trek” The studio and Mr. Abrams are already in the planning stages for the next one. Let us all hope the Star Trek movies continue to “Live long and prosper”
Jackman Hopes To Claw His Way To The Top Of The Box Office
The latest X-Men movie "Wolverine" premieres this Friday May 1st at a theater near you or me for that matter. I know I will be lining up for what seems to be the first hit of the huge summer movie season. From what I have read and heard, the reviews are mixed on what to expect from this film, but I am keeping a positive attitude about this movie. Hugh Jackman clawed at the chance (pardon the pun) to make this prequel of sorts in large part, because he loved the character and secondly because of the fans of the long running comic book series, so I am going to wish him and the fans the best, and let us hope this is the start of a great movie season.
