Mania Review: Getaway (Article) - 8/31/2013 11:50:24 AM

Getting carjacked by Selena Gomez then having to take her along for the bumpy ride. Sounds like the plot of a porno. I may have to check this out.

Star Wars Casting Details (Article) - 6/19/2013 1:33:40 PM

The seventy-something male definitely sounds like a Han Solo character.

 

The Summer of '83: Superman III (Article) - 6/17/2013 9:25:06 AM

The best thing to come out of this crapfest was the computer scheme Richard Pryor's character devised to shave fractions of a cent off financial transactions. The only reason this was a good point was due to its reference in Office Space 16 years later.

Tuesday Terrors: Chucky returns and We Review Piranha 3DD (Article) - 9/11/2012 4:42:40 PM

The Bay looks like a cross between Slither, Quarantine, and The Crazies. Slither was much less serious and a lot of fun.

Borg Queen cast in Thor 2 (Article) - 8/14/2012 9:23:25 AM

She was great as the ghost in the 1981 horror movie "Ghost Story."

Summer of '82: Friday the 13th Part 3 (Article) - 8/13/2012 11:48:41 AM

I saw this in the theater as well; twice in fact. The second time I took my cousin who is a year younger than me. He got so scared that 30 minutes into the movie we had to leave and walk into Fast Times at Ridgemont High. I remember something did seem to be missing from this movie (a plot) compared to the first two but do think how important this film is in the series due to the hockey mask. I bet when the director or writer wrote this into the movie he figured it was just a simple "Jason takes the mask of one of his victims" storyline and had no idea how iconic it would become. At this point though, with all the slasher movies that were being released in this era, it seems the Friday the 13th franchise was always raising the bar as far as the killing were concerned. Each sequel was attempting to outdo the previous as well as outdo the copycats.

Comic Con 2012 Survival Guide (Article) - 6/15/2012 5:00:25 PM

I stood in line at last year's Comic-Con on Thursday morning at 5:30 AM to get tickets for this year. The cost of 4-day with preview night was $175. There won't be any onsite pre-registration this year as everything will be done online. Usually, tickets go on sale any time between October and March but every year it seems to be getting later and later. I hope there will still be some sort of pre-registration for those who have a current badge and/or have attended for a few years. Otherwise, it's going to be a mad free-for-all.

Really though guys, there is simply no comparison to this convention (for geeks). These tickets would sell out in the same time if they were $400 apiece. You can easily make up the expense if you're savvy enough to get some exclusives and swag then sell it on eBay. To put it into perspective, Supernatural charges homely, nerd girls upwards of $700 for a Weekend Gold Pass. At that price, I better be getting nude photos of Bela, Ruby 1&2, Jo, and Meg :)

As stated previously, follow the Twitter and Facebook feeds of everything SDCC related. I was able to get parking underneath the convention, including preview night, well before it was on sale to the public, just because I knew what site to refresh.

 If you haven't been to SDCC, even with the massive crowds, you just don't know what you're missing. It's basically Mardi Gras in the Gas Lamp. You don't even need a badge to have a fantastic time. Yes, there's absolutely no way you can see even a quarter of the things you'd like because of the lines but if you learn to network with friends and other con-goers, you not only get into packed shows, but get great seats and autographs too. There's so much more to comic-con than just seeing the popular panels or movie trailers from the WB or Sony Pictures. Some of the best times I’ve had have not been at the shows but at the smaller booths, for example: Meeting the writers and artists from Dark Horse, Marvel, DC, BOOM!, Image, Top Cow, etc. Playing card games, video games, or getting that rare comic or toy you've needed for your collection. Stumbling upon actors and directors making chance appearances at smaller booths (Robert Kirkman, Rose McGowen, George Romero, Robert Englund to name a few). Getting photos and hugs with the booth babes, Power Girls, Snow Whites, Ghost Bustys, etc is always a treat. Discovering new art, stories, comics, movies, and games that I would never knew about otherwise is absolutely one of the most intriguing aspects of Comic-Con. I would never have known how great Trick ‘r Treat, Person of Interest, Archer, and… oh yeah COMIC BOOKS are had I not discovered them at SDCC. I really haven’t ever had a bad time at this show. It easily blows the Star Wars Celebration away. Comic-Con always manages to exceed my expectations even with its reputation as being an overcrowded, homely nerd girl, Twi-hard, Hollywood convention.

Summer of '82: E.T. (Article) - 6/13/2012 1:54:09 PM

I agree Darth! It's very strange no one wants to comment on this, maybe because it's a bit if a kiddish movie or a wannabe tear-jerker. I had a good time watching it when it came out and though it tried hard to be emotional, I mostly enjoyed how well it caputred the whole 80s kid's lifestyle. How could you not like a movie that takes place partially on Halloween?!? :)

Summer of '82: E.T. (Article) - 6/11/2012 9:57:16 AM

 I remember seeing this the first weekend it opened at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood. I was very amused how at the beginning the kids were all playing D&D (or some form thereof). It was a great movie and a great time to be a kid, but I think what made it more special was how you just knew this barrage of wondrous movies was something serioulsy special. You just didn't want this period to end. Curse you E.T. though for making The Thing a box office flop :)
