TOP TEN LAMEST STAR TREK ALIENS (Article) - 5/15/2013 4:43:10 AM

To Continue my above post you should have added the Chameleon Lizard Guys from Enterprise Season 1, they were somewhat intimidating but only for so long.

 

TOP TEN LAMEST STAR TREK ALIENS (Article) - 5/15/2013 4:40:31 AM

While I liked Star Trek Voyager a lot lets face it, a lot of its Aliens were just really lame, like the Season 1 robots who kidnapped the Chief Engineer because the could not make more of themselves, the Kazan (which were just Klingon knockoffs as mentioned above), the Hunter Species (I cannot remember what they are called but they were the biggest Predator ripoffs I have ever seen),  and several others I honestly cannot remember.

And then theres The Borg who I loved but were way, way overused in Star Trek Voyager.

 God I hope this movie flops if for no other reason than its going to be nothing more than a "Rich People/Successful People Evil, Poor Destitute People Good."  Its going to be full of far left bullsh*t more than likely which is why Matt  Damon (who is joining Sean Penn, and others in the whacko actors who can't shut their yaps when it comes to politics department).

Damon is having a hard time selling a movie with himself in it anymore, and Foster has not had a hit in years so I doubt this movie will do well honestly. and if it doesn't, good I say.

Saldana for Guardians of the Galaxy? (Article) - 4/5/2013 12:08:10 AM

Man that casting blows, seriously the girl from Avatar, she looks nothing like the character bodywise.

My choice would have been Rachel Nichols (Scarlett from GI JOE Rise of Cobra), she is a decent actress and and can play a tough chick as evidenced by her role on Syfy's Continuum series.  Plus she is insanely hot and looks good when painted green, as evidenced by her small role as the Orion Girl in JJ Abrahms Star Trek.

Mania Review: Oz the Great and Powerful (Article) - 3/8/2013 1:30:30 PM

"Mania gave it a B.....most other reviews pan the crap out of it!"

Ummm it currently has 94 positive reviews and 62 negative, the majority of the reviews for the movie are good, regardless it could have gotten lousy reviews  and I would not care, I don't let movie critics determine what I see this looks like a fun movie and I will probably see it this weekend hopefully.

Dinklage for X-Men Days of Future Past (Article) - 2/14/2013 9:34:04 PM

 Oh God this is an awful thought, but I remember from the 1990's X-Men cartoon  where Mr. Sinister had a lackey named "BRAIN CHILD."  He was located and in charge of Mr. Sinisters Savage Land base, and he was a hilariously awful character who they put in the cartoon simply because he was from the comics I guess.

The best part about him was the way he spoke and extended the pronunctiation of his name LOL- "I AM BRAAAIIIIN CHIIIILLLD!"

I guess this actor could play him I suppose (cringe)

Mania Box Office Report: Gobble Gobble Vampires Win (Article) - 11/26/2012 12:23:25 AM

Anyone think its weird that no one on this site reviewed Rise of the Guardians, it was one of the better animated films I have seen in a while, and it was very enjoyable as well, but its been out almost a week and has no review yet.

Mania Review: Cloud Atlas (Article) - 10/26/2012 9:21:12 AM

Wow this review makes the reviewer look like a total jaded prick, seriously.  I mean the thing has over 80 positive reviews on rottentomatoes, and got a standing ovation at a Toronto film Festival, and this guy gives it an F, what a joke.  I can't wait to see the rating he gives to Silent Hill Revelation another movie I think looks pretty enjoyable, this guy slams so many movies that are actually pretty good his reviews are patheticallly laughable and this one in paticular make him seem like an a$$hole nothing less.

Mania Review: Total Recall (Article) - 8/3/2012 12:57:53 AM

Pfffft, a D from this guy bascially means the film is probably a C or B-.  I plan on seeing this one tommorrow night, I think it looks pretty good, the Verhoeven version is fun as well but no more than a B movie. 

I love how critics are bashing this film for the chase scenes, action, special effects, etc.  Funny thats about all the original is remembered for that and Arnolds over the top performance.  I also love the fact that people complain about the lack of humor in the new version, ummm yeah I don't expect them to be cracking jokes or cheesey one liners to much in a movie that looks like this, it looks like a serious Sci-Fi movie so I expect the humor to be kept to a minimum.

Detractors also seem to whine about the lack of an R rating, thats a stupid complaint as the one thing that would bring to the movie would be over the top gore more than likely and nudity which really serves no purpose in a movie like this.  (Verhoeven however used over the top gore to an goofy degree in his movies and through nudity around so much you could assume he was a pretty big pervert in real life).

In the end I will see this movie and probably enjoy it, bump the critics.

 

Mania Box Office Report: Brave Victory (Article) - 6/24/2012 5:59:19 PM

I guess this is the Summer movie goers decided to play it cheap, I mean really people might say well Summers movies were bad, well if your going to go the "Uber douche Critic" route the movies this Summer are no worse than Summer movies from years past, its just people don't seem to be going to the movies.

Heck you cannot even site critical reviews as being much as a "Must see or a Deterrent" when it came to people going to the movies, and  while "The Avengers" did really well and got good reviews, Men in Black III got good reviews overall but wound up being a dissapointment domestically, The Dictator (got decent reviews for a raunchy comedy but basically dissapointed),  Prometheus (got good reviews but will probably come in a little over its budget domestically but thats it).

I personally have a feeling that Ted will perform like every other dumb raunchy comedy and make around $85-$120 million before leaving theaters, thanks mostly to Seth Mc"Douche"Bags idiot fanbase.

The new Spiderman will proabably underperform because no one I know is looking forward to it, they should not have rebooted it, plus the new guy playing Spiderman seems unlikable, and add to the fact that The Lizard is a lame stand alone villain (heck if you are going to use the Lizard bring in someone else like Kraven the Hunter or something).  I I predict around $250-$300 million for Spidermans newest movie.

I have a feeling as well that The Dark Knight Rises will probably not do as well as The Dark Knight simply due to the fact of the villain choice, Ledger's performance and the drama around his death really helped the second film, there is none of that this time.  Bane is not Joker, so he does not have the mass appeal of other Batman villains outside of comic and cartoon fans (plus Nolan's design for him just looks dumb). Also the hype for this film does not seem to be as strong as the hype for the second one.

I predict a $200 million opening for The Dark Knight Rises and around a $450 million or less domestic take.
