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.

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.

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

 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.

10 Classic Horror Films that Should Be Remade (Article) - 2/10/2010 8:03:08 PM

Reanimator was written by Lovecraft to be a humorous horror tale.  To play it straight would be against the spirit of the original story.

Plot 6:  An Earth corporation/military force nukes the planet from orbit, killing all life on the planet without having to lose any forces.  They then harvest the inorganic minerals they want, because it is not affected by the bomb.

If Earth is really dying, and this mineral is important as they make it out to be, this is exactly what would happen.  Unless the Na'vi find a sponsor from Earth to protect them from external threats, they are doomed.

7 Futuristic Movies That Got It Right (Article) - 1/21/2010 5:13:04 AM

 The problem with Star Trek is that it loses serious bonus points for transporters.  Physicists have long pointed out that your copy (because your original was disintegrated) would degrade with each "beaming".

DVD Shopping Bag: Kingdom of the Spiders Special Edition (Article) - 1/19/2010 6:42:06 AM

And by the way, animals attacking humans out of retribution dates back to The Terror by Arthur Machen.  It is a very, very, very old trope.
