The Summer of '83: WarGames (Article) - 6/3/2013 2:25:01 PM

 "We care about David and his girlfriend (Ally Sheedy)..."  Mainly Ally Shedy.  Yum!

Does the story hold up to sophistications of modern society/culture?  No.  Still a damned fun movie?  Yes.

Dabney Coleman, Barry Corbin (I always laugh at the stuff that comes out of his mouth in this movie), Eddie Deezen (in a small typical role), and evidently Michael Madsen was in the movie somewhere.

I loved the shit out of Wargames.

Oh, yeah.  And Matthew Broderick does okay.

MAN OF STEEL: Extended International TV Spot (Article) - 6/3/2013 9:44:02 AM

 I don't mind if they take his powers away...well, as long as they don't do it in the FIRST movie that is.  The question of whether a 'hero' is still a 'hero' regardless of whether he has his powers or not.  It is interesting to see how the hero overcomes and adapts.  

My big gripe is the hero wanting to GIVE UP his powers ala Superman II (Spider-Man 2: The Wrath of Ock).  I mean, c'mon if you don't want to be Superman, be Clark Kent forver. Mild Mannered bullet proof reporter!  The whiny emotional bellyaching Superhero wanting to give up his powers is old and tired.  

The nice thing about Nolan's Batman was, his goal was to give up when he was no longer needed, but when it came time to have his emotional break down and quit early.  He did it offscreen.  He gave it up and we didn't have to listen to his agonized bellyaching.  Much.  

Star Trek 3 Found its Director? (Article) - 6/1/2013 9:02:13 PM

 Is Edgar Write related to the Edgar Wright of 'Shaun of the Dead' fame?

Mania Review: After Earth (Article) - 6/1/2013 11:39:07 AM

 What I want to know is where all the Anti-Smith family garbage comes from?  Now it could be a front, but I doubt it, but everything I've seen from Wil and Jada indicates that the young Mr. Smith wants to act and that as such his father being the big name in hollywood that he is, has found projects for his son to work on.  Including producing and overseeing the projects.  

Why would anyone attack this?  This sounds like the kind of a thing a decent upstanding father whose been in the cesspool that is knows as the Hollywood machine would do if he wanted to let his son follow him.  Will could just unleash his son to the wolves and try to make a name for himself, but he's looking out for him.

I've seen a lot of interviews with the parents that have said that if the kids didn't want to act, they wouldn't make them do it.  Case in point: Willow.  But Jaden seems to like doing it and by the way, he was the kid in Pursuit of Happyness and he did okay there, and in the Karate Kid.  Granted, he's a lot like a little Will Smith, but his Dad is Will Smith and what little boy does not want to be like his awesome father.  

 

National Lampoons Vacation Blu-ray Review (Article) - 5/31/2013 11:53:27 AM

I am picky about the movies I re-buy and DVD has been solidly around or 17 years.  I'm not counting on Blu Ray to go to it's grave anytime soon.  And I have been buying Amazon instant videos, but that service isn't perfect yet, and I'd rather own physical copies for my "BIG" movies.  Ones that I consider classics.  I see no reason to purchase the Mission Impossible movies on Blu Ray for example.  I have them on DVD and they are not good enough to justify paying extra for them, although they should be in bargain bins for Blu Ray.

But we have Vacation on Beta.  And it's been gone for twenty-five years. 

It's time my family updated Vacation.

National Lampoons Vacation Blu-ray Review (Article) - 5/30/2013 4:58:00 PM

The Summer of '83: Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (Article) - 5/21/2013 7:03:28 PM

 Shellhead, it wasn't either King Solomon's Mines (with Richard Chamberlin and Sharon Stone) or Firewalker  (with Louis Gosset Jr and Chuck Norris)??

The Summer of '83: Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (Article) - 5/21/2013 8:26:15 AM

Hey, my plus didn't come through!!  This movie is a D-Plus .  Or barring that a DD!

The Summer of '83: Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (Article) - 5/21/2013 8:24:48 AM

 A "D"? For SpaceHunter?  Really?  Have you no taste?  No decency?  This movie is not a "D".  It needs a new rating.  Like a "D "    We have Ernie Hudson and Michael Ironside.  Ernie Hudson!

This movie is excellently bad.  Gads, go with what it is, a fun and horrible movie, where the hot android dies and the shrill teenager lives!

Give me this and Yor: Warrior of the Future and you have a double header of dumb that is oh so fun!
