Firefly Reunion Footage at NYCC (Article) - 9/19/2012 2:44:50 PM

Its sad that some of the better television shows can't gain enough notoriety to stay on T.V.  Arrested Development garnered critical acclaim but could not gain enough of an audience to stay on T.V.  The same could not be said of Firefly, looking back I thought it looked cheesy and decided early on not to watch.  After watching Serenity, I went back and watched all of the episodes on Netflix, and to my surprise I really liked it.  The campiness was truly part of the appeal and all of the characters were well written and affable, now I wishs I would'vr given it a chance and it may still be on T.V.

The 50 Best Chase Scenes: Part 3 (Article) - 9/19/2012 5:58:21 AM

The chase scene from the Matrix Reloaded will be included, really it's the only reason to watch the movie.  I knew The Bourne Identity chase would be included and I'm sure we can expect at least one more Star Wars chase scene and it mentions the chase scene from Mad you can bet it'll be there too.  Bullitt was a good chase scene for it's time and influenced many others after it.

Mania Review: The Loved Ones (Article) - 9/17/2012 8:03:08 AM

I watched it this weekend.  The story is good and there are a few twists.  The movie contains minimal gore, although there are a few scenes where I thought the torturing of their victim looked painful, none of it was cringe worthy.  It's worth renting though and is definitely better than my past few rentals.  I had to decide between this and Battleship...I'm confident I made the right decision.

Cap 2 and Avengers 2 Updates (Article) - 8/27/2012 11:08:55 AM

The Masters of Evil are usually a group opposing the Avengers, but I think Ultron would fit in best.  It definitely presents an oportunity to introduce some new characters such as the Vision, Hank Pym, and Janet Van Dyne.  I don't particularly like any of those characters, but it's got an air of realism.  I think everyone would like to see Secret Invasion or a Civil War themed movie, but those seem near impossible and don't jibe well with this Marvel Universe.  I'm interested in seeing some live action TV series based on Marvel characters, Daredevil, Punisher, maybe even Wolverine would make great series.  I think they screwed up by cancelling EMH.

Mania Review: The Expendables 2 (Article) - 8/17/2012 5:38:24 AM

I agree with violator...these expendables are great....but isn't Seagal the baddest 80's action icon.  I'd add Kurt Russel in there for his performances as Snake Plisken.  Maybe Seagal could be the villain in the third installment, because if there is one thing I know it's that Hollywood loves money and if the sequel makes know

Mania Review: The Campaign (Article) - 8/14/2012 11:40:45 AM

For all of the posters who stated Will Ferrel can't act and always plays the same character I suggest you watch Stranger Than Fiction, Everything Must Go, and Melinda and Melinda.  All three are comedies in a way, but Ferrel actually plays a character with depth and you almost forget for 2 hours that he's Ricky Bobby or Ron Burgundy.  Many comedians have played serious roles with limited success.  Williams in Insomnia and Carrey in the Truman Show are prime examples.  So before you bury the guy, at least watch some of his films that weren't main stream comedies.

The Wolverine on Location (Article) - 8/5/2012 9:49:35 AM

I think JEH could play an older Daken, I don't think he's suited for a super hero.  I know Jackman is getting older, but they could do one more Wolverine movie with him as Old Man Logan.  Honestly that is one of my favorite Wolverine stories.  The current Origins story is pretty damned good and I couldn't see why they didn't use it.  It has trilogy written all over it.  Wolverine discover he has a son, said son is sadistic killer trained by shaowy figure Romulus, said Shadowy figure has brainwashed Logan for years and confused readers about Logan's actual origin.  You could have cameos with Deadpool, Sabretooth, Cyber, a few X-Men, Omega Red.  You cannot make it PG-13 though, anyone who has metal knives coming out of his hand and ninja swords is going to cause some serious bloodshed.  I need decapitations and loss of limbs and for Deadpool to not shoot laser beams out of his eyes.

Hudgens Joins Machete Kills (Article) - 8/5/2012 9:30:54 AM

Machete was a horrible movie, the acting in it was less than decent.  I liked Planet Terror and Death Proof.  I know that most people preferred Planet Terror, but from a directing and dialogue stand point Death Proof was the better movie.  Rodriguez did great with Sin City stylistically, but serious a good director could get more out of Michael Madsen.  His wooden portrayal of Bruce's detective buddy in Sin City was just flat out crap.  I like Danny Trejo as much as the next guy, but he is no leading man.  I respect Rodriguez because he's Texan and that's where he shoots his movies, but the best movie ever shot in Texas is No Country for Old Men.  That movie epitomizes the struggles that both Texans and Mexicans have living near the border, plus stellar acting.

Mania Review: Total Recall (Article) - 8/4/2012 10:34:50 AM

I used to think that Colin Farell was a bad actor, but it turns out he just doesn't do well in big budget action movies.  Watch the movie In Bruges, he has some talent, it's just mostly wasted in these types of movies due to bad directing.  I usually decide on how good a movie may or may not be by the guy directing it.  I've been dissapointed in the past, but if I see Martin Scorcese, James Cameron, or Ridley Scott then I expect the movie to be good and the acting to be great.

I will wait to rent this or watch it on Netflix. I usually agree with Rob, which is why his are the only reviews I read.  I'll usually check out RT for an aggregate score.  I don't think any review good or bad would make me want to see this movie.  I decided from the time I heard of the remake that I was not going to see it, mostly based on the guy who was directing it.

Saturn Award Winners 2012 (Article) - 7/27/2012 11:13:18 AM

Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a great movie, 100 times better than the original and 1000 times better than the Marky Mark remake.  Serkis is the most underappreciated actors working today and I think what he did in ROTPOTA trumps his portrayal of King Kong and Gollum.  It's a shame he hasn't won an Oscar.  Maybe Cruise's movie won because he is big news right now due to his divorce and scientology.  I've heard of the Saturn Awards, but the Cruise win probably was a grab at publicity for a lesser known awards show.  The only thing worth watching in Ghost Protocol is Paula Patton. I didn't watch Take Shelter, I thought about it, but after reading the synopsis decided not too.
