#theWolverine teaser?

We’re all familiar with the concept of a movie trailer.  The trailer is typically a 30-second to 2-minute preview of a movie designed to ‘rope you in’.  The downside of the modern trailer is that it gives away too much, often several key action sequences or big laughs.


The next X-Man movie, the Wolverine [IMDB], is a quasi-reboot telling the tale of the unbreakable feral Canadian’s adventures in Japan from the 1982 Claremont and Miller 4-book series.  I think this is good use of Twitter’s Vine, in that 6-seconds is just long enough.

Finding Podcasts?

Podcast No. 11 Recording

I find the Apple Podcast app and iTunes clunky and ponderous.  If you are looking for curated podcasts, try out the AV Club’s Podmass (reviews) and Podmass Central (listings).
