Vinyl Records, Firefly, Veronica Mars Movie and Poltergeist Remake

Largest Record Collection No One Wants - Or can afford at least. Paul Mawhinney is trying to sell his vinyl record collection worth $50 million dollars for a bargain price of $3 million due to health issues. Sadly, as people move more and more too digital, the old analog standbys seems to be losing value. You would think a music museum or the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame would be interested in such a collection. Soon people will regret when such artifacts of the past disappear.

Firefly to Blu-ray - One of the best television series that never succeeded in a large part to Fox meddling comes to Blu-ray. For the detail anal it’s probably a good buy but at a price tag of $62 on Amazon, it isn't a must buy but definitely goes on the list for a future purchase. The set will be out on November 11th.

House of the Dead: Overkill Trailer - A great trailer that is a throwback to the 70s cheap flick trailers. The game will be for the Wii, no release date. I just purchased the House of the Dead 2/3 combo and found it a lot of fun, especially once replace the Wii Zapper with a "gun" accessory.

Veronica Mars Movie? - Creator Rob Thomas and Kristin Bell have both indicated they are open to a movie but as AICN points out, it’s probably not going to happen. Both are entirely to busy and really the interest isn't there in a mainstream way. If the fan base had been big enough to begin with, the series would be starting season four.

Poltergeist Remake? - The 80s horror flick remake factory is getting ready to churn out another piece of crap, this time screaming up the class film Poltergeist. Boogeyman scribes Juliet Snowden and Stiles White have been assigned the writing duties. I would have more confidence but it’s pretty clear that today's movie makers have no clue how to do a good entertaining horror movie.
