The Hateful Eight next for Tarantino (Article) - 1/15/2014 6:49:19 AM

Maybe name it Kill Kiddo?

O'Toole was the bomb in Phatoms, yo!

True Blood: In the Evening Review (Article) - 7/30/2013 5:31:16 PM

Yeah, the Bill/Andy conversation was Bill threatening him.  He basically said, 'I understand you want to protect your daughters, but so do I, and I will do anything to protect Jessica'... so basically, telling Andy if he goes after her, he's a dead man.

Yeah, I really like Nora as well, and it was a shame to kill her off.  But, I honestly thought there might have been some way to bring Terry back, but after this episode, I believe he's gone for good.

Overall, Bill just striding in the house during the day time was pretty bad ass, and Eric flipping his sh*t when Nora was killed were my two high points. 

True Blood: F*** the Pain Away Review (Article) - 7/16/2013 11:54:29 AM

I get the feeling that since we've gone back to Warlow's time, 3500 BC, they have to one up it for the future.  So, my guess, is when Lilith was created directly from 'God'... I think in the future, when they need a bad guy next year, 'God' will really just be an older vampire, maybe from 6500 BC. 

AVATAR Movie Review (Article) - 12/18/2009 8:46:13 AM

So reviewers are starting to come out and say the movie wasn't the 'Greatest Movie Ever' and now it's time to crucify them!?  Get a life people, this movie looks good, new technology and all.. congratulations, it deserves a lot of credit on that point.  But that's it, new 3D, HD technology... and it cost a hefty sum, so it should be mind-blowing.  But again, a good story, that does not make.  I would take a fantastic, well acted story over effects any day... period!  And I'm sure you will all agree, if you honestly think about it.  Yes, the story line has been done before, as almost 99% of everything is either a remake, or from a book.. that's ok, creating your adaptation of a story already created is fine, and will continue to happen.  But, when you crazed fans calm down a bit, hopefully you will just admit it looked good.. that's it.

4 Reasons Why Avatar Will Own, Son! (Article) - 12/17/2009 7:48:15 AM

Ok, I have said this since I saw the first screen shots... this movie WILL NOT do well at the box office!!  Now, before people get defensive, I'm not saying it won't be a good movie, but I am saying it won't do well, probably not even making it's money back.  I have worked with Regal Cinemas for 14 years now, and I have seen the trends, and what makes money, and what doesn't.  Here's the bottom line.. ready for the big secret..  WOMEN.  The movies that are a financial success draw women.  Women will not only spend the money to watch the film, but most likely bring a husband/date with them.  That's the reason Titanic was a huge success, women wanted to watch it, over and over... the majority of men, not so much.  I see the trends every day, it's part of my life, and all I'm saying is, women aren't clammering to see this movie as much as guys are.

Before you move on with the hate train, just let me say, I want to see this movie.  I think it looks amazing, and I'm looking forward to it.  But, I also don't think it takes the multi-millions of dollars to make a great movie, as I also loved Paranormal Activity.  This movie will break even at best, but will probably lost money.

And before you all start saying 'I'm a women/girl, and I want to see it', and 'My girlfriend/wife says she wants to see it'... yeah, I'm not saying ALL and EVERY woman, I'm just saying the majority.  This is how the Box Office works.  Again, there are a few exceptions, as I'm sure someone will try to bring up to discredit what I'm saying, but overall, if you follow the logic, this movie will not make $500 million, it just won't happen.

The Prisoner: Arrival/Harmony Review (Article) - 11/17/2009 7:30:50 AM

I've been watching the original series On Demand, and it's amazing!  All 17 episodes are free on cable right now, so I decided why the hell not.  Patrick McGoohan is quite incredible, and it's really made me want to find some of his other work.  But, I do have to say, this new reworking of The Prisoner shares less and less with it's parent.  The most glaring offset is #2.  I love Ian McKellen, but one of the major plot points of the original is the constant changing of the #2 character.  There were only 3 episodes where it was the same actor.  Every episode #2 was someone different, which emphasized the point; if they couldn't get #2 to talk, then they were replaced.

 I also am not a fan of the differences of #6.  In the original he knew what happened.  No amnesia, which is used too often for my taste, he was just kidnapped, and rallied against it the whole time.  He was also extremely confident, he knew he was a badass spy, boxer, athlete, genius... and the confident hero type was a huge draw. 

 I know there are always differences in remakes, but the things they changed are what makes the original so amazing.  Yes, I do like the new series, but Patrick McGoohan made the old series, and hopefully the new #6 can make this his new series.

Mania's LOST Poll (Article) - 5/28/2009 6:06:11 AM

The Radzinsky idea certainly sounds like it could work.  He did seem oddly obsessed... maybe he's either working for the Man in Black/Blue, or actually is him... one of the mini-shockers next season is that someone could stumble upon the real Radzinsky's body... and then go 'Say Whaaaaat?'.  Also, I'm still saying it's Atlantis.  Yes, they did say, I believe it was Ms. Hawkings, that there were different places on the planet that held special energy... so no, they're not all Atlantis, but that's part of the reason Atlantis was formed.  I believe all of the ancient/advanced cultures/places, such as the Mayans, Egyptians, Easter Island, Stonehenge, were all built on the power sources.  Perhaps this area was the strongest, or most powerful, but ancient Atlantians were able to tap into it, and accelerate society exponentially.  Sounds a bit crazy, but so does the whole show, and I think it would make for a good ending.  The show is going to end somehow... would you rather it be Atlantis, or a Job and Esau biblical ending?  Something supernatural is happening, and it will be explained in the end... I just hope it pays off.  Oh yeah, it's Atlantis.
