Two Marvel Screencaps

Firstly, Kelsey Grammer as the Beast:

I don't think it looks that bad, but I reserve judgment until I see him moving.

And what is purported to be the CGI-Flaming Skull of Ghost Rider:

Alls I can say there is, I really, really hope not. Hopefully this is a really early crack at it and it will be fixed and forgotten like that first shot of Wolverine swinging around the spike on the Statue of Liberty that was never seen again after the fist trailer for X-Men. Or, maybe it's just a hoax.

The problem is that the flames don't cast any light on their surroundings, magical or not, if you can see flames, they're probably generating light. Also, if they want to be realistic, you shouldn't see so much of the skull through the flames.

Whatever, I've already spent more time analyzing this picture than I meant to.

Happy Holidays

Merry Chrismahanaqwanzikah everybody. I know that I'm a bit late on this subject as the furor has died down mostly when I think talk-radio and Fox-News hosts found something else to be outraged about, but I'd like to weigh in on we Liberal's War On Christmas.

You know I find it sad when you can't even count on the stores themselves to remember that the true meaning of Christmas is crass-commercialization. Here you have outfits telling their employees that they'd rather they say Happy Holidays to shoppers instead of Merry Christmas (Though it's not like they can really make anyone say one thing or the other). How are we supposed to remember that we're buying Christmas Presents?

It's not like there's gi-normous Christmas sections in these stores or anything. And it's not like they play nothing but horrible Christmas song covers over and over again (mixed with some Muppet Christmas songs that are not horrible).

These stores are forgetting who butters their bread, God-Fearing-Present-Buying-Americans. This is a sad, sad war on Christmas indeed when people are trying to be inclusive, and trying to drive the commercialization out of Christmas.
