STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS: Rookies (Article) - 10/26/2008 6:55:39 PM

<P itxtvisited="1">Over 30 years ago Lucas had TWO big film ideas, Star Wars and Indy. He wrote and directed A New Hope and then hire people to help him with the writing and directing of the other films.  So basically he did ONE movie (A New Hope).  I think Lucas never was an exceptional filmaker... he never was. He is an exceptional businessman though...  a great businessman who happens to work in the film industry.  Using his genius, he made mainstream people to forget that Empire was not directed by him, that Empire was not written by him, that Jedi was not directed by him.  He effectively made mainstream people to think he's done everything... and he did it so effectively... that even he thought he really did all.  That's why he took the writer and director's chair with Menace and look what a mess he did.  Lucas is a great businessman... but an average filmaker.</P>

Spielberg Still in Charge of First TINTIN (Article) - 8/27/2008 5:53:54 AM

I know we haven’t seen the first one yet but with Spielberg and Jackson, two kings in the movie business, you have to wonder who will direct the third one. Just because these films are animated I’d say Zemeckis is up to the role. Who would you choose maniacs?

Writers Begin Scripting POLTERGEIST Remake (Article) - 8/20/2008 5:35:08 AM

I'm just wondering how close we are to a Hollywood remake-of-a-remake trend. You know this will happen eventually.

Mania Sits Down With Mirrors' Aja, Sutherland and Smart (Article) - 8/15/2008 6:42:15 AM

Been a while since Kiefer made one of these type of horror/thriller movies. I heard next season of 24 will be the last, followed by a theatrical movie. Anybody have some input about it?

Tom Cruise Gets Used in THE TOURIST (Article) - 8/14/2008 6:11:15 AM

Did they gave too much of the plot in the synopsis? (i.e. the agent's affair with the criminal)

Belyaev's AMPHIBIAN Coming to the Big Screen (Article) - 8/12/2008 5:16:10 AM

TDK is a sequel, Bourne Supremacy is a sequel, X-men 2 is a sequel, Terminator 2 is a sequel, Aliens is a sequel. I think Hollywood has good and bad sequels. I'd say bring it on and then we judge.

You are right ponyboy, in those episodes (were a two-part story) Mulder witness some kind of spiritual force that retrieve the kids soul/spirit out of their bodies to stop their suffering (by the serial killer). At the end Mulder sees the spirit of his sister, they hug and then she disappears along with other spirit kids. Nevertheless, the body of the sister was never clearly identified.

LOL; that's why I love this site.

Lucas is a great business man but a mediocre filmmaker. All the stupid bits of Indy IV can be traced back to Lucas; the gophers remind the annoying little robots and little animals of the SW prequels that kept appearing between scenes, the Tarzan bit (Chewbacca anyone??) I admit it was kind of funny in ROTJ but in AOTC felt flat just like in Indy!, and the freaking CGI ants… if you are familiar with Spielberg work you know there’s no way he’ll wanted it that way. That was a plain rip-off of The Mummy critters which were created by Lucas own ILM.
