The Summer of '84: Sheena (Article) - 8/19/2014 2:28:27 PM

Yeah, all I remember about this movie was Tanya Roberts' boobs.  And how they looked even bigger and more impressive in this film than they did in Beastmaster or A View to a Kill.  Really.  That's all I've got.  LOL.

Dwayne Johnson Confirms Shazam Role (Article) - 8/19/2014 2:10:14 PM

I agree with Eldogg ^^^^.  I can't see Johnson as Shazam, but I can DEFINITELY see him as Black Adam.

ANT-MAN Begins Production (Article) - 8/18/2014 2:27:35 PM

I'm still really worried that they are aiming to make this more comedy than action or sci-fi film.  There's a lot of potential in Ant-Man, and the choice of cast and director really makes me nervous.

I AM, however, glad to see that they are bringing back John Slattery, presumably to play Howard Stark in a flashback or two.  I like seeing tie-ins to other films like that.

 

Episode VII Villains Revealed? (Article) - 8/18/2014 10:41:05 AM

 So, opening 20th Century Fox fanfare/Disney opening, fade to deep space, the John Williams music starts, the opening scroll brings us back to the galaxy far, far away... and then, as the scroll fades into the inky black distance of deep space, we pan down to...

A mysterious, pale hand gripping a lightsaber floating and spinning aimlessly through space.

WHAT?

And then, when the hand floats too near a planet's gravity, it gets pulled down and into the atmosphere, crashes on the planet.... and neither the hand nor the lightsaber gets immolated upon entry through the atmosphere?

Ummmm......

 

 

 


 

SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN - New Creative Team (Article) - 8/18/2014 10:36:13 AM

Yeah.  Don't read it.  Don't care.  Sounds like more DC shenanigans from the 'genius' of Dan Didio.

Mania Review: The Expendables 3 (Article) - 8/16/2014 8:06:33 AM

I'm all over this.  Can't wait to see it.

The Summer of '84: Red Dawn (Article) - 8/14/2014 1:17:33 PM

Early warning stations in Hawaii are admitted to have been taken out, and our Pacific Coast, even back in the 80s, is a lot of space to guard and not that well protected.  Our biggest defense from invasion has always been the ocean.  If planes full of airborne units wanted to fly into the middle of the U.S., I actually kind of believe that they could, especially if they were coming up from Cuba by way of a Communist Mexico.  Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if it was possible TODAY.

This movie was not jingoistic, as our country was not being aggressive against others in the film - we were on the defensive.  It WAS very patriotic and very pro-America, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, Rob, though you often sound in your reviews like you consider it to be.  The 80s were very patriotic times, with the Cold War at every one's doorstep from the moment you woke up every day.  Patriotism is what helped people deal with the fear of it all.

This film was a coping mechanism, I think, as well as a look at how vulnerable we really were, how much we took for granted, all wrapped in the shell of an action movie.  Your hindsight seems to be a bit negatively inclined, and that subjective tone doesn't help the review.

 

 

The Summer of '84: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (Article) - 8/11/2014 2:36:32 PM

I not only wished for a sequel... I somehow got it into my 9-year old brain that there should be a cross-over with Remo Williams!  LOL!

The Summer of '84: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (Article) - 8/11/2014 2:35:15 PM

LOVE this movie!!!

Bill Murray for Disney's The Jungle Book (Article) - 8/10/2014 10:15:37 PM

I'm not sure if I'm interested in this... or just curious.  As with most remakes, I don't really see the need for this.  The original is a classic!  Even my two-year old loves it and loves the music.  Remaking it seems another unnecessary blasphemy to a cinematic classic beloved by millions.  But at the same time, with this cast and the promise of a combination of live action and animation (rather than just a modern CGI/animation version), I'm somewhat curious what they're going to do with it.
