Henry Cavill in Man of Steel

Lazy Friday News: Superman’s underwear, ‘Waterworld’ redux, Robo-Veggie, ‘X-Men’ return

Lazy Friday News is a weekly round-up of stories from across the spectrum of entertainment, or whatever happens to tickle my funny bone. This week: Zack Snyder has taken Superman’s underwear right off in Man of Steel; Waterworld might have been awful, but we may see it again; vegetables stand in for the new RoboCop; two past X-Men stars are coming back in X-Men: Days of Future Past; and the good and bad news about film piracy.

DVD Tuesday: ‘Batman Begins’ & ‘The Ruins’

This week in new releases, I take a look at the hot Blu-Ray launch of Batman Begins, plus reviews of the plant horror film, The Ruins; Bruce McDonald‘s edgy The Tracey Fragments; teenage comedy Charlie Bartlett; the dramatic thriller Towards Darkness; unofficial Spice Girls documentary, Raw Spice; and the latest television seasons arriving on DVD, including a collection from The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.
