Strain Gets 13 Episodes for FX (Article) - 11/22/2013 7:39:49 AM

The first book is okay.  The story is good, thought the writing is awful.  If you were to make a drinking game on simile usage, you wouldn't last the first few chapters.  The description of the eclipse alone has something like 9 different similes and metaphores.

The series completely goes off the rails by Night Eternal.

10 Coolest Doctor Who Villains (Article) - 11/21/2013 8:01:08 AM

If you include the Troughton stories, the Great Intelligence trumps at least half this list.

Winter of '83: A Christmas Story (Article) - 11/18/2013 5:39:32 AM

This movie did very poorly in the original theatrical release.  It is only with home viewing that it found an audience.

Fall of '83: The Dead Zone (Article) - 10/21/2013 6:45:39 AM

Even King moved in a slightly different direction with this one, staying away from straight-up horror for one of the first times in its career.

I am not sure that I agree with this.  Would you call The Stand horror?  It has a lot of similarities to the Dead Zone in terms of the themes that it explored.

31 Days of Horror Movies: Them (Article) - 10/16/2013 4:00:56 PM

Ah, the importance of a (missing) exclamation mark.  I thought this was going to be a review of Them!, the 1954 classic.

Hammer to Produce Daylight Gate (Article) - 10/9/2013 8:49:44 AM

 The thing about the original Hammer was the beauty of the visuals.  It is not the same without that.

31 Days of Horror Movies: 28 Days Later (Article) - 10/8/2013 12:55:36 PM

First one is still a classic, but I hate 28 Weeks Later with a passion.  It requires too many stupid people to keep the plot moving.

The Fall of '83: Never Say Never Again (Article) - 10/7/2013 6:27:53 AM

I thought there was something about McClory's ownership of the rights that required Connery if it was going to be made at all.  You hear rumors all the time about McClory's estate wanting to go to the well a third time, but that Connery's retirement made it impossible.

Forster Out of WWZ Sequel (Article) - 10/5/2013 10:55:19 AM

the low point in this movie is the final arc IMO.

I disagree.  The final act is the closest in spirit to the book.  The characters actually act smartly and use what they know about the zed-heads to defeat them.

Honestly, Israel should have known about the issues with sound already.  They should have had a sonic perimeter of music miles away from the city.  If they did that, they would have never fallen.

10 Most Realistic Sci-Fi Movies (Article) - 10/3/2013 7:32:11 AM

 The primary problem with Blade Runner is the existence of colonies outside of the Solar System.  That makes it decidely more of a stretch than any of these, even though the depiction of Earth is very well done.
