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!

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.

Batman: Assault on Arkham - Night Vision Clip (Article) - 7/31/2014 11:35:58 PM

Holy crap... I just soiled myself in response to that much awesome.  I will now be ordering this immediately.

Mania Review: Guardians of the Galaxy (Article) - 7/31/2014 2:26:42 PM

Seeing it Sunday with the family.  I was initially nonplussed by the idea, knowing only a cursory amount about the characters from my comic-addiction heydays, but I've seen enough to get me really excited to see this.

I'd someday like to ask Kevin Feige what it's like to routinely pull DC's underwear up its collective ass and then eat their lunch.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY - Official Movie Clip #5 (Article) - 7/30/2014 7:26:39 AM

BAHAHAHAHA!!

Mania Review: Lucy (Article) - 7/25/2014 7:39:32 AM

I love Besson.  Very excited to go see this tonight with the wife.

NEW BATMAN PHOTO - Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (Article) - 7/24/2014 4:15:22 PM

Yeah, that release date is going to change... or DC will get spanked badly.
