So, many of you may be aware of the rumors of a new "Star Trek" movie helmed by the venerable movie maker Quentin Tarantino. This news of his pitch to movie studios has definitely got me hyped since he's certainly batting high percentages on the movie scope. Quentin has proven time and again that he... Continue Reading →
“The Mummy” (2017) – Remake Commentary
I’ve mentioned before how the movie industry has really dived deep into the phenomena of the ‘remake’. I’m not sure what exactly is happening with the decision to constantly release a stream of rehashed, non-original content, but it seems that this practice is not going away anytime soon. I bring this up because of my […]
“Solo: A Star Wars Story” – Let the Anthology Continue
So there’s absolutely no secret that the overall fan reaction to “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” was one laced with heavy doses of outrage and many mixed feelings about “The Force Awakens” and “Rogue One” to boot. Disney is landed butt first onto a slippery slope that they need to recover from as quickly as... Continue Reading →
“1922” – More Stephen King Thrills
I wanna say the first thing I really saw that was Stephen King produced was “Creepshow” or maybe “Cujo”. I don't know, it was so long ago its now lost to relative antiquity. What I do remember is that I was both intrigued and freaked out at both and every subsequent viewing of any of... Continue Reading →
“The Predator” – Another Reboot?
I’ve tried giving the whole reboot thing a chance, over and over. But, I have to admit that I have yet to see one that’s really that impressive. To be frank, I think it’s a general mistake for filmmakers or storytellers of any kind to rely on such a vehicle to provide entertainment. Sequels are... Continue Reading →
“Upgrade” – Six Million Dollar Man in a Chip
I've been wondering for a long time at, in there constant rehash of old movies and shows, what the hell is taking them so long to remake "The Six Million Dollar Man". Well maybe it would be "The 60 Million Dollar Man" due to this ridiculous inflation we have to constantly endure. But I hear... Continue Reading →
“Luke Cage” – Season 2 Trailer Review
I have to admit that I came a little late to the Netflix sponsored shows depicting so called minor characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And to honest I started watching them out of order which I don’t really think screwed up any of the story line building up to the “Defender,” but may have... Continue Reading →
“Lost in Space” – Danger Will Robinson!
At many times we as media consumers will get a leak or upfront info about a program that’s in production. As a casual peruser of such rumor mills, I often miss these tidbits of information. This probably works to my favor in the sense that I’m often setup for a pleasant surprise when a movie... Continue Reading →
“Avengers: Infinity War” – “Thanos” the Movie in Review
So, I've spoken repeatedly to this point of the importance of movie makers as well as artists, business persons and us regular old folks on telling a good story above all else. If done so, just about every other aspect of the presentation can be forgiven. That is to say, low budget graphics or cgi,... Continue Reading →
“Pacific Rim: Uprising” – Robot Mechs Rule!
One of the cool things about the release of “Pacific Rim” way back in 2013, was the obviously awesome inclusion of Idris Elba as the way too cool Marshal Stacker Pentecost. Seriously, the name alone let’s you know he’s gonna be a super bad-ass who saves the day right up front. He came to stack... Continue Reading →
