Case Dismissed: Back to the Drawing Board On 'Justice League' Script?

Rumors are flying that the wait for a "Justice League" film -- which would unite several different comic book heroes on the big screen, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and several others -- just got a little longer. Apparently the problem is the current script, which was written by "Gangster Squad" screenwriter Will Beall. But really, it's probably for the best to give it a little time anyway, to let expectations cool down from the high standard set by last summer's "The Avengers."

A quick-eyed Redditor noticed something funny while screening the 1990 Stephen King adaptation "Misery": In the news articles that Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates) keeps in her scrapbook, sample chunks of text are just re-used over and over again. As one commenter pointed out, they probably did it that way so that no matter where the viewer's eye landed, he or she would get the same information. Remember the good old days before the internet when no one would catch something like that? Those days are long gone, kiddies.

And now a couple of ridiculous blogs that you should probably follow. The first is pretty self-explanatory: Lousy Book Covers trawls Amazon and other self-publishing sites for the most absolutely worst attempts. Some are merely half-assed, but some have the opposite problem -- way too many ideas happening all at once. This should give you plenty of inspiration for what not to do with your NaNoWriMo efforts.

Next is an archive of entries from someone who watched Dana Carvey's notorious 2002 flop "The Master of Disguise" once a day for twenty-one days: I give you The Master of the Master of Disguise. The result goes in some places you might not expect. It just goes to prove Gustave Flaubert's point: "Anything becomes interesting if you look at it long enough."
