10 TV Actors We Want To See In More Movies (Article) - 8/20/2010 10:29:18 AM

Really, saying the Old Spice guy should get roles in movies is kind of like saying the "Where's the beef?" lady should have had roles in movies

She did.  The movie is called Moving Violations and stars Bill Murray's younger brother pretending to be Bill Murray.

She did not do much more because she died soon afterwards.

5 Reboots We Would Love to See (Article) - 8/14/2010 6:08:15 AM

Maximum Overdrive has no one else of consequence?  It has Yeardley Smith -- as in Lisa Simpson.  Turn in your geek badge.

The problem with The Wraith is that it is essentially a week modernization of High Plains Drifter.

GRRM is notoriously slow about publishing, so I was trying to hold off on starting till at least the next book was out.

GRRM has a long way to go.  As he has pointed out regarding Jack Vance, his literary influence:

The Palace of Love (Demon Prices 3): 1967

The Face (Demon Princes 4): 1979

 

20 WTF TV Character Deaths (Article) - 5/26/2010 6:45:59 AM

 If you really want WTF, how about Tessa's death in "Highlander: The Series".  The episode has Duncan saving her from a crazy Watcher, only to have her gunned down by a random mugger on the street at the end of the episode.

20 Awesome songs for Sci-fi Fans (Article) - 4/5/2010 6:54:55 AM

 2112 is essentially a rock opera version of Anthem by Ayn Rand.  It is unfortunate that Rush is tied to this awful author, but then this was the 70s, before we learned just how naive and destructive that woman's ideology is.

TV Wasteland: Well Done, Caprica (Article) - 3/22/2010 10:18:38 AM

The Sinbad lowpoint is "Eye of the Tiger".  It has lower ratings on IMDB than Golden Voyage.  It also came out the same year as Star Wars, making its effects look pitifully dated. 

Weekly Book Buzz: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls (Article) - 3/22/2010 8:45:10 AM

Greene is awesome, but he is doing too much urban fantasy right now, with both Nightside and the Secret Histories.  I would love it if he started another space opera series.  Yes, Deathstalker is done (and Secret Histories is what you get when you cross Deathstalker with Nightside), but another, more restrained series would be great.

10 Upcoming Directors New Movie Compatibility Test (Article) - 3/22/2010 8:29:20 AM

28 Weeks Later was horrible!  The entire plot depends upon supreme incompetence by the military.  They gave full key access to a civilian employee?  And did not revoke his access when his wife came in?  This type of cartoonish depictions of the military do nothing to further the genre along.

That, and by the end of the movie, I wanted to the kid to die.  It does not help your movie when your protagonist is so inherently unsympathetic.

Top 6 Clash of the Titans Toys (Article) - 3/12/2010 9:37:03 PM

 The old Kraken looks so much better than the generic lizard/troll they have now.

10 Most influential women of Sci-fi (Article) - 3/4/2010 8:15:50 AM

 Kathryn Bigelow deserves to be on this list for one reason: Near Dark.

The fact that this movie is not mentioned in your write-up of her is insane.
