10 Most Realistic Sci-Fi Movies (Article) - 10/3/2013 7:23:24 AM

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

 

 

The Fall of '83: Brainstorm (Article) - 10/2/2013 5:55:25 PM

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!

Mania Review: Rush (Article) - 9/27/2013 4:02:30 AM

Hey Rob, you're an idiot!!! Apollo 13 "has its moments"???? Are you kidding me? Apollo13 is one of the best movies around, and quite possibly RH's best!!! When you start off your review like that, it shows me you know nothing of his movies. And like DoubleC said, you didn't even mention Cocoon or Willow, both fantastic movies. You're a joke in this review, Rob. Makes me wonder if Rush is really all that great!

"Apollo 13 has its moments"......phthtftftthhftftht! Man, you really can say some stupid things somethimes! Give me a break.

Sharbino for Poltergeist (Article) - 9/27/2013 3:56:02 AM

Um. No. This is going to suck big time. I'll pass.

Carrie Gets R Rating! (Article) - 9/24/2013 11:44:44 AM

Anything with Chloe Moretz in it is at least a look. She was great in both Kick Ass movies, so I'd be curious to see her in this, though I never was much of a fan of the original or any of the remakes.

Star Trek: Into Darkness Blu-Ray Review (Article) - 9/18/2013 11:34:34 AM

I'll keep my comment simple and to the point: I absolutely LOVED Star Trek Into Darkness! AWESOME movie, and a prime example of a sequel outdoing the original.

Affleck on Batman Backlash (Article) - 9/18/2013 11:29:48 AM

I don't really care myself. I only have one Batman that I think was right for the role, and that was Michael Keaton. He was perfect as "The Dark Knight" IMO, and I didn't like the Nolan interpretation of the character(s). Batman Begins was good, but I can't stand Bale. TDK and TDKR were both crapfests, IMO.

If Ben wants to take a stab at it, so be it. Me whining or complaining about it make no difference anyways.

Jarred Harris for Poltergeist Remake (Article) - 9/6/2013 4:19:08 AM

Meh. Not interested. I love the origial Poltergeist, and I'm sorry to say, NO Movie Mom can match JoBeth Williams for hotness!!! All I see here is a "modernized" version of the movie with nothing new added to the mix. The Reality Show format idea sucks!

I'll pass!

Episode VII Casting Update (Article) - 8/31/2013 2:01:55 PM

Taking that Chewbacca Death from Vector Prime would really stretch it, I think, if they went that route. Chewy is ome of the most beloved non-human characters in Star Wars. Vector Prime took a HUGE risk, and I remember the moment I read that "scene" of Chewy sacrificing himself to save young Anakin Solo from the Yuuzhan attack. And then Hans subsequent spiral down to depression and dispare. Vector Prime is a rough book, since it's not all neat and tidy for the SW characters.

In fact, the whole Vector Prime Series of books, 22 or so, if I remember correctly, were brutal, painful, and even down right depressing in their own way, but it was an absolute fantastic series of books. There were also a ton of "hero" moments, especially one where Luke saves Jacen Solo from the Vong and was weilding 2 lightsabers in his assault! That was awesome!! I read somewhere that some 300 Trillion or more lives were lost to the Yuuzhan Vong, incuding a lot of Jedi! The "Vong" were far more destructive and devistating on the Galaxy than the Empire ever was. They could make a whole High Quality/Adult Oriented TV Series based on this material alone, and it would have to have a PG-13 style rating, if not even close to R for some of it, if done correctly!

As you can see, I am a huge fan of the Vector Prime Storyline. Amazing amazing series of books! THE most fun I ever had in the SW Universe, bar none! Not even the Thrawn Trilogy comes close!
