“Alias” Alumni Watch

One of my all-time favorite TV shows is “Alias”.  “Alias” was created by J.J. Abrams and it began in 2001 and ran for 5 seasons.  If you like “Lost” and “Fringe”, I think you would appreciate Abrams creative vision in this series.  All five season of “Alias” are on DVD, so if you haven’t watched the show before…definitely check it out.  You’ll totally be hooked! 🙂

Even though the show is over, the former cast of “Alias” have certainly flourished in their careers.  Jennifer Garner has a growing film career and she has her own production company.  Michael Vartan is on the TNT show “Hawthorne”.  Greg Grunberg is on NBC’s “Heroes”, and Bradley Cooper is having a breakout year with his recent summer hit “The Hangover” and many upcoming movies on the way.

Thus I created a new category on my blog called the “Alias Alumni Watch” so whenever a former cast member has something  new or noteworthy – you will be able to view all posts with “Alias” references in this new blog category.  Keep and eye out for updates made in the “Alias Alumni Watch” category in order to stay up-to-date with your former “Alias” cast members’ careers!

G.I. Joe: The Good and the Bad

G.I. Joe had all the elements of what a summer action movie should have, but sadly it did not quite deliver.  You can’t deny that movies based on toys have been a hot commodity this summer and that trend in my opinion will not change any time soon.  Hasbro and Paramount Pictures teamed up to bring G.I. Joe to life. It had action, special effects, and romance but to sum it all up – it was predictable and the ending had me thinking “what was the point of making this film if it was going to end like that?”  It is sad because G.I. Joe could’ve been so much better.

Here is a synopsis of the film from the G.I. Joe official website:

“From the Egyptian Desert to deep below the polar ice caps, the Elite G.I. Joe team uses the latest in next-generation spy and military equipment to fight the corrupt arms dealer Destro and the growing threat of the mysterious Cobra organization to prevent them from plunging the world into chaos.”
