Storytelling Shorthand

James McAvoy is a great young actor! I first saw him in the first Narnia movie and he's been doing a lot since then. I've noticed a little something about the roles he's been playing recently. He's seems to play the attractive and intelligent nerd type and he does so with or without a love interest. I've seen two examples where he shows his smarts and likability, posted below. He plays a game of chess with someone.

The first image is from a movie released 5 or so years ago called 'Penelope', and the second is from the new X-men film, due out this summer.
Coincidence? Maybe. Who knows if the directors or the screenwriters were thinking alike about McAvoy or if this is kind of shorthand used for all kinds of actors. I will keep my eyes open!

Jim Shooter has a Blog

I am proud to be the 200th follower of the Jim Shooter BLOG!I knew Jim briefly at Marvel when I was a Romita Raider and I got to know him a bit better when I worked on staff at Valiant. It's been great reading about his life at DC in the 60s and how he became EIC at Marvel. The comic book business is running out of old school pros, so I'm happy to read what Jim is writing.

Wedding on a Ship!

I have never spent any time on a modern cruise ship! I did go to a party on the old, haunted Queen Mary, but this was a different experience. My fiance and I attended a wedding on a cruise liner yesterday and It was a lot of fun. Here's what stuck with me. The brides dress was beautiful, the ceremony and reception was short and to the point because all the guests who did not pay for the actual cruise had to get off the ship. And most importantly, there was tons of food! I wish the happy couple all the luck in he world.
