New THE GREEN INFERNO Trailer (Article) - 4/17/2014 8:58:08 AM

I think it's a bit of a stretch to call Eli Roth "A Horror Master."

The Spring of '84: Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes (Article) - 4/1/2014 10:18:34 AM

Always loved this movie, especially the jungle scenes.  Ian Holm was fantastic as he's tyring to teach Lambert's Tarzan English.  This was always an A, maybe A- in my book.  The minus due in part to finding out that Glenn Close voiced over Andie MacDowell.  I never even thought of it as a kid when I first saw the movie, but discovered in my teen years in the mid-to-late 90s.  I like Andie and I like Glenn Close, but I don't get why you don't just cast someone else in the role if she can't pull off the accent.  

The ape make-up fx from Rick Baker were great as well in fact it was the best of the time period as well.  

Lambert I thought worked for this version.  Making Ian Holm Belgian really helped make Lambert's natural accent fit into the movie even more.

And the late-great Ralph Richardson gave an amazing performance as the elderly Lord Greystoke who looks upon the world with a child's sense of wonder and fun since his grandson has returned.

The Spring of '84: Romancing the Stone (Article) - 4/1/2014 9:55:03 AM

One of my favorites growing up.  Any Kathleen Turner used to be so damned hot.  And her voice!  

The Walking Dead: A Review (Article) - 4/1/2014 9:06:02 AM

Joe, I know I see you on FB all the time, but good to see you back on the boards on Mania.  I know it wasn't always the greatest show, but I always looked forward to your Smallville reviews.

The Spring of '84: Police Academy (Article) - 3/31/2014 6:10:19 PM

I will agree that this one was by far the best of the bunch and I still have a soft spot for it.  The others (for me at least) kind of seemed to follow the Star Trek pattern of the even numbered sequels being the better ones.  That doesn't mean they we very good, but better than the others.  I have the DVD box set and still revisit them from time to time to remember all the fun from the politicially incorrect and rose colored days of the 80's.

I'm pretty sure I have the first issue of that old comic book too. ;)

The Walking Dead: A Review (Article) - 3/31/2014 5:55:04 PM

I don't know about a zipper sound effect but I do recall the sound of the guy undoing his belt buckle which was creepy as hell.  Kept expecting to here "Now squeal like a PIG!"

Only real disappointment here for me was there was no Carol, Tyrese, Judith or Beth.  Granted I still think it was Beth who was what's for dinner onthe old BBQ, but given that her abduction happened, what 3 or 4 weeks ago, seems like a big hanging thread.  

The Walking Dead: Us Review (Article) - 3/28/2014 10:46:07 AM

 ^^ I was going to ask the same question, momitchell7. LOL!

HARRY POTTER HOGWARTS COLLECTION Release Date (Article) - 3/26/2014 7:19:27 PM

I thought you could download UV copies to your device and not have to stream them?  Am I wrong on that?  I've cashed in a couple UV digital copies and clicked the download, but haven't watched them away from a wi-fi or 4g connection.

Rumor: Bradley Cooper for Indiana Jones? (Article) - 3/26/2014 7:13:35 PM

What the hell is everyone talking about?  A Crystal Skull?  Shia LaBeouf as Indy's son?  Aliens?  Someone called Mutt?  That all sounds ridiculous.  I'm glad Spielberg never gave into Lucas with making a 4th movie if those were GL's ideas.  Sounds like crap to me.  Thank goodness we were never subjected to such garbage.

The Walking Dead: Us Review (Article) - 3/25/2014 7:39:59 AM

 SInister, I saw that comparsion too. I seems to close to be a coincidence to me.

Possible Spoiler

 

 

Anyone else think that was Beth cooking up on the barbie? You wouldn't think they'd give her an off-screen death, but it would be a really cool and super-shocking way to reveal the terror of Terminus.
