It’s being reported that Sony is being hit with a whopping $59,000 fine (note dripping sarcasm) for its role in the death of welder Tim Holcombe. Holcombe died in a freak accident on the set of the forthcoming “Spider-Man” movie.
If you missed all those big summer movies, that’s no problem – they’re all coming out on video and DVD this fall. “Tomb Raider” is due out on November 13, “Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within” is due out on October 23, where is will compete with the long-awaited DVD special edition of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” Other films likely to be shoveled out in time for Christmas include “A.I.” and “Jurassic Park 3”. Here’s the news story that repeats everything I just said. :-)
I managed to attend last night’s local press

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like we’ll get more
than that, but there is a petition online to bring
the episodes that have been made onto the market in

sign. If you haven’t seen it, some stations
still show it in syndicated reruns. Canadian viewers

broadcast times elsewhere?
“X-Men: Evolution” and the forthcoming “Justice League” are both based on comic books. So, naturally, they’re getting comic books of their own, based on the TV series, which were based on comic books. Ugh. Too many circles for my mind to comprehend.
