New Hobbit Images (Article) - 9/11/2012 6:11:49 AM

twomcs,

Have you never heard of the Appendices and/or the Silmarillion? Because . . . yeah, that's how! :)

Doctor Who: Dinosaurs on a Spaceship Review (Article) - 9/11/2012 6:07:44 AM

The robots reminded me of the benevolent aliens in The Fifth Element, in terms of design. And unlike the reviewer, I did not find this episode whimsical and light-hearted at all. I thought it was pretty dark, in fact. The genocide of an entire race, the sad fate of the triceratops, and the Doctor's hand in the villain's ultimate demise was not the stuff of children's bedtime stories at all. But maybe that's just me.

This was one of the better written episodes, however, and a good start to the season along with last week's "Asylum."

Metal Gear Solid Movie Confirmed (Article) - 8/31/2012 6:29:55 AM

Hideo Kojima, the creator of the Metal Gear franchise, has already gone on record saying that he would have no problem with someone other than himself writing a completely original script for the movie, and a director other than himself doing his own vision of the game for the big screen. So sounds to me that the movie will have zilch to do with the stories of the game. As a huge fan of the games, I'm surprisingly okay with this. As stated by others before me, the latter games are pretty much movies in themselves. So I'll always have those. Therefore, they can do whatever they want with the movie as far as I'm concerned.

Mania Review: Premium Rush (Article) - 8/24/2012 5:53:55 AM

As the only big movie releasing this weekend, I welcome this review. I was wondering if I should waste my time even going to the movies since I've seen everything out. At least this review pushes me more in the direction of maybe checking it out. Thanks, Rob!

The Hobbit Trilogy? (Article) - 7/25/2012 5:12:37 AM

Well, the Appendices really are a book unto themselves. So I can sorta see this becoming a trilogy and being okay with that. So long as the last two movies are released no more than six months apart. I really don't have the patience to sit through another three year wait to see events unfold to their fullest in Middle Earth.

Dracula Series to NBC (Article) - 7/25/2012 5:05:30 AM

 This might have been cool . . . 10 years ago.

Item 47 Clip (Article) - 7/17/2012 6:03:06 AM

Item 47? Shouldn't S.H.I.E.L.D. send out Agent 47 to retrieve it then? Makes sense.

First Look: SPARTACUS: WAR OF THE DAMNED (Article) - 7/10/2012 6:34:38 AM

There's only but so long they could stretch out the historic events and still make it interesting (i.e., action packed) at the same time. So it makes sense to have this be the last season. I thought Gods of the Arena and Vengeance were already too much padding for what is actually a pretty thin and straight forward historical record. I'm perfectly fine with this being the final season. And so are are the show's producers, apparently.

Star Trek: TNG 25th Anniversary Event (Article) - 7/2/2012 5:33:40 AM

Since the restoration and updated effects have only been done for the first season so far, he means the most popular episodes of Season 1. Not the entire seven seasons.

Weaver Confirms Avatar 2,3,4 (Article) - 6/28/2012 6:32:57 AM

I consider myself as big a Highlander fan as they come (I mean, OBVIOUSLY!). But I'm surprised how I seem to be the only one that likes Ryan Reynolds as the Highlander. It's not him I'm worried about, actually, but the scriptwriters and filmmaker. I simply don't believe in their ability to pull off the right amount of pathos and historic gravity that should go along with the actiony sequences necessary for a truly great Highlander film. RR as an actor is perfectly capable of pulling this off if he has the right material and support.
