31 Days of Horror Movies: The Mist (Article) - 10/24/2013 8:49:49 AM

I liked this movie, and really thought the ending was amazing, powerful, and intense. I never read the book, so what ending did King have?

The Fall of '83: The Right Stuff (Article) - 10/22/2013 4:07:54 AM

Fantastic movie! One of the best "Sci-Fact" style movies! And Bill Conti's music is incredible! Gravity may be considered "realistic" Sci-Fi, but The Right Stuff is actually based on real events and portrays those evnts so well, you feel as though you're watching actual history! If you haven't seen this film, do so, you won't be disappointed!

Never bothered to see the first one. Will also pass on this one too.

Cool Hanso! I plan to see it tonight!

Actually, it should spin more around 47.2 degrees to be as accurate as possible.  (wink wink - nudge nudge)

No worries!

Monkeyfoot and Hanso, I didn't say the movie won't be good, it looks great, just that the "science" is a little off to make this as "realistic" as say, Marooned, or even Apollo 13. That's all.

MrEt, you make valid points. That is something I was wondering as well, since this is supposed to be a "realistic" Space Thriller. Also, a question I ask is this: Hubble moves at a different rate of orbital speed as well, compared to the ISS, along with your aforementioned orbital paths/distances. There would be absolutely NO WAY a stranded astronaut could "fly" from one to the other with jet packs. Or even if they were "flung" in that direction. Everything moves in orbit. Even "stationary" GEOsychronis SATs "move" in relation to their position over the Earth. The Earth rotates, so that means anything in orbit rotates with it.

Don't get me wrong, it looks incredible, but it's not as "realistic" as some make it to be if they have these stranded Astronauts go from the Shuttle/Hubble Docking Plan to the ISS after the disaster hits.

Invisioner, great point about Marooned! I have that DVD and have watched that movie several dozen times and love it! Such an incredible movie with tremendous acting! Very realistic for sure!

And what about Apollo 13??? Seems like that one was missed too!! And also The Right Stuff!! Both of those movies are far more realistic than Blade Runner or even Close Encounters.

Monkeyfoot, I couldn't agree more about The Andromeda Strain.....it is my all-time personal favorite movie.

I have this movie in my DVD collection, and I saw it in the theaters when I was 17 when I saw it, and I loved it then, and I still like it a lot today! Still the first "Virtual Reality" movie and a great performance by Walken, as usual.

Top 10 John Carpenter Films (Article) - 10/2/2013 5:44:02 PM

This list showcases some of my all-time favorite movies. The Thing being #1 is spot on! JC's production values, direction, and the over-all bad-assness of this movie makes it his best movie he ever did, IMHO!

I LOVE The Fog, Christine, and Escape from New York, but the rest on the list are all bad ass! This was when JC kicked ass and chewed bubble gum on the comprtition! I saw every one of these movies, except Dark Star, in the theaters. I have Dark Star in my DVD collection, though! Great movie, and the precursor to Alien!

But, there will never be another JC film like or as good as The Thing! Simply a masterpiece any way you slice it!!  The Thing would be the greatest Sc-Fi Horror film ever done......but it has the unfortunate timing of coming out after THE greatest Sci-Fi Horror film, Alien, which just so happens to also be one of the best movies ever made!
