ROBOCOP: Official International Trailer (Article) - 11/21/2013 6:38:37 AM

Keith, we've been down this road before. I am not, and never will be a fan of either TDK or TDKR, especially TDKR......Bane SUCKED, and the whole, "I have a bomb" story has been done numerous times, and is too predictable. I liked BB, but did not and DO NOT think it stacks up to Tim Burton's Batman, and does not come anywhere close to being as good as Iron Man. But, we've discussed this many times before, so we're simply repeating ourselves here! LOL!

I do like Farrell in SOME things, but I just did not get into his character at all in Total Recall. That movie was terrible, except for the visuals, and of course, Ms. Beckensale! One movie I did like Colin in was Minority Report, which is a great movie!

No thanks! The original WAS "ORIGINAL". This is taking cues from Iron Man, the original RoboCop, and The Dark Knight, and trying to mesh them together to make a "darker, more realistic" RoboCop. Puh-LEEEEZE! Give me a frakkin' break!

The reason the original RoboCop, like the original Total Recall, worked SO well when they came out was because they DIDN'T take themselves so seriously! They had over the top gore, wild action sequences, and a more "comic book" approach to the feel of the movie. So many of these remakes, re-imaginings, whatever, are going for the "modern, realistic" tact that in MY opinion has gotten OLD!

That is why I still say, to this day, the BEST Live Action Comic Book Film is the first Iron Man, NOT any of the Nolan Batman movies. THEY tried too hard to be "realistic", and again, IMO, FAILED miserably at being a good MOVIE! Iron Man didn't do that, and was an absolute BLAST! BB was good, but not great, but TDK and TDKR both pooped big piles of poo-doo all over the place.

So, like that disaster of a remake called Total Recall with crappy actor Ferrell at the helm, I predict THIS pile of dung will splat to failure as well! Screw this RoboCop "remake"......I won't bother wasting MY money on it!

RoboCop Official Trailer #2 Sneak Peek (Article) - 11/7/2013 6:56:59 AM

Uh. No. This looks stupid. The original is a classic. All this looks like is another over-CGI'd attempt at re-invisioning a classic, once again. Didn't they learn ANYTHING from the crap that was Total Recall's remake? Adding gee-wiz FX doesn't make a movie, or remake, good. Definitely pass on this turd!

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!

Mania Reviews: Machete Kills (Article) - 10/11/2013 3:52:26 AM

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

Mania Review: Gravity (Article) - 10/4/2013 10:33:33 AM

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.

Mania Review: Gravity (Article) - 10/4/2013 6:09:58 AM

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.
