‘Prometheus’ With Some ‘Leftovers’

Let me begin by saying that I didn’t start out hating “Lost” when it originally aired back in 2004.  In fact, I honestly didn’t watch enough episodes to form any sort of opinion (of the informed variety, at any rate). The thing is, I am a huge fan of horror and science fiction movies and […]

Why ‘Pacific Rim’ Will Spawn A Sequel

I should mention that I have said the same thing about “Tron: Legacy,” and while there appears to be minimal movement on that front, all signs seem to indicate that it is happening. Guillmero Del Toro’s “Pacific Rim,” which cost somewhere between $180-200 million to produce, and earned just over $407 million worldwide – most […]

The Strangest Of Species: A Warranted Remake

A very rare bird.  Think of a coelacanth (which were discovered alive a few decades ago, though despite being such a remarkable, unusual creature it may be endangered) or a Tasmanian Tiger (none discovered alive, though rumors persist). It’s that unusual. What makes it such a great idea is that the original – a precursor […]

‘Pacific Rim’ Review

“Guillermo Del Toro approaches giant robots and monsters with a genuine love for the subject matter, and it shows on the screen.” I saw Guillermo Del Toro’s “Pacific Rim” yesterday evening, and enjoyed myself immensely.  He seems to understand that, if it’s just about the robots, you might as well make a ‘Transformers’ sequel and […]

How To Get A Free Copy of Star Trek (2009)

And the best thing is that it’s perfect legal.  If you’ve been waiting till Memorial Day to see  “Star Trek: Into Darkness,” you’re in luck.  Purchase your tickets through Fandango, and wait till you receive an email from them for a code to download the reboot that started it all: 2009’s “Star Trek,” via iTunes. […]

‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ Teaser Trailer

While I have to admit that I liked this trailer, what bothered me a bit was that it–the trailer–felt somehow familiar, as if I had seen it before.  Seeing that I am too broke to have any connect to either Bad Robot (J.J. Abrams’ production company) or Paramount Pictures, I have no idea why. Then […]

Brian’s ‘Argo’ Review

“Argo,” despite revolving around a fake film, is a very real, engaging movie. I recently tried to watch J.J. Abrams’ “Super 8,” but its depiction of the 1970’s for some reason felt like it was filtered through someone’s perception of what the era should have felt like, as opposed to being based upon any real metric. […]

NBC Wants A ‘Revolution’

J.J. Abrams (Lost, Alcatraz) and Eric Kripke (Supernatural) have an upcoming show on NBC called “Revolution,” about a world that is forced to exist without power because of some unspecified event. That Abrams and Kripe are working together is impressive, though Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Cowboys And Aliens) directing the pilot episode […]
