With the Governator’s recent biography release, I thought it was high time we take a look at some of the things Arnold has been involved in, that may have gone under the radar of most casual fans. Let’s see how many of these you knew already.
Welcome to Hero Express, your one-stop shop through the news filled world of superhero’s in Film, TV, Video Games and whatever else floats your boat.
This is the Hero Express for September 8, 2011:
Disney’s D23 expo never really interests me unless they’re talking about another Pirates of the Caribbean, which even now doesn’t matter to me anymore. Tron however is a different matter together. I loved Tron: Legacy even not having watched the original since I was little. It was visually stunning and had a pretty interesting story. Plus, when do you get to see a movie where Jeff Bridges is both the hero and the villain?
This felt all too familiar. Some 6 or so months ago, I sat here at my desk and typed pleas to the internet community to watch Terriers. I was met with: ‘that new FX show about the dogs?‘. No one could quite figure out the marketing campaign, and that hurt the show. But unlike the networks, our favorite cable station FX let Terriers play out despite the abysmal ratings, instead of canceling it mid-season. I credit FX with giving it a chance, even if they didn’t re-new it. And they’ve just done the same thing again.
I didn’t remember much about the original Tron movie. I remembered Jeff Bridges being in it. I remembered people wearing cool looking light up suits of red and blue, and riding motorcycles and what not. But I just really never understood it as a kid, or rather I didn’t try to.
