Of Star Trek Pictures and Daffodils

Hopefully no more time-travel conundra from this upcoming TOS2 sequel. Get straight to the point; fighting off the Klingon non-turtlehead subspecies.

Matrix Trilogy -- Too Intense for Human Viewers?

They just ran all three Matrix movies back-to-back, for two nights in row.

Don't they know? Can't they see that these movies may be too intense for any and all audiences?

Hit THE ROAD, Jack

Thanks for mentioning the as-yet-upcoming movie The Road for which many TV spots show up now. Not having yet read the book, I noticed the ads as having a somewhat "Post-apocalyptic" air to them. Here's an interview with Viggo on the subject: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jenna-busch/viggo-...

Of Goats and Men

In case you're planning to see "The Men Who Stare at Goats" when it shows up in the multiplex, I will avoid commenting so's not to spoil it for you.

Suffice to say, some elements of this film could place it in a category of the Science Fiction/Fantasy genre.

Desert Settings vs. Realistic Suburban Ruins

The armageddon genre of films has always, always found itself in a proverbial desert. Why? Well, for one thing, even if the proper settings could be imagined, the special effects technology hadn't really allowed for larger-scale moving backgrounds. A more realistic Road Warrior type of movie might h...

Toward a Prolegomena on a Future Feature Film

If what came to pass were another movie based upon "A Boy & His Dog" in the mode of a classy remake, I wonder about what opinions there may be regarding the look of this film. I'm thinking, it should entirely avoid any resemblance to the earlier version and the sorts of design elements...

A Boy & His Dogg, the Movie, the Remake(?)

Vaccine or Virus?

They say that many important mutations in human history, over the millenia, took place as a direct result of viral interpositions. In other words, populations which encountered and overcame certain ancient infections seem to have outlived those who did not, or something along those lines. Which make...

The Spanish Fly...er, I mean Flu

The Spanish Flu outbreak of 1918 took about three years to run its course. I only say this here because, considering current events, it's likely that somebody reading this will wind up with the Swine Flu (the virus of which is an almost identical cousin to that behind the aforementioned Spanish Flu)...

Hills Have Eyes, the Remake

Another classy upgrade of a major cultic attraction, The Hills Have Eyes showed up on broadcast television last night. Great movie, I must say. If those travellers in the movie had just been a bit more cautious, events might have transpired differently for them.

Re: The Peevish Slobberer from Beyond Electricity's Web

There must be some reason for these noisy housing locations. For me, I guess, the huge numbers of people provided welcome relief from obsessing over the Johnny Fukkrfastr-types who invariably show up to "moon" me out of the way whenever a relationship starts to show some promise. Hey, with...

wow hey great movie man

Dreams with Sharp Teeth, a documentary from Los Angeles, showed up on a reshelving cart at the library this afternoon. I couldn't keep my sticky fingers from grabbing it any more quickly (does that make logical sense?) and then sliding it--hopefully not for its last time--through the automated check...

The Peevish Slobberer from Beyond Electricity's Web

Has anybody ever had this happen to them? A new nightclub opens up right outside the bedroom window, as high-quality speakers cause the entire building to throb until precisely 2AM? I kind-of enjoy it actually. The club doesn't happen every night; most nights they've got some sort of music rehearsal...

Rec Wins by a Nose Hair

How come I've never heard of this Rec movie before this thread? Now it's a must-see, I guess.
