    Solar Tsunami Destroys New York City

    Don't you just love doomsday news? Today everyone is talking about the solar tsunami, or "coronal mass ejection," or simply sun explosion, that's heading straight towards Earth. I'm pretty sure we're safe from anything more than perhaps a few power outages and satellite damage. But I have no idea. I'm not a scientist. I'm a movie blogger.

At Comic-Con, several directors played to anti-3-D sentiment in the cavernous Hall H. J. J. Abrams believes that “when you put the glasses on, everything gets dim." Joss Whedon loves 3-D, but at the same time was against MGM turning his production of The Cabin in the Woods 3-D: now Whedon hopes being the only non-3-D horror flick could make it special. With almost 60 3-D films set for release in the next two years across some 5,000 digital screens, now 2-D is old-school-cool. Some filmmakers are r...
