This movie could be a cliche ridden snooze fest where the best bits are in the trailer. Or, it could pick up the ball dropped by The Big Bang Theory and give us a reason to love nerd comedies again.
It may not be the smartest idea in Hollywood, but at least it’s a little smarter than Batman Vs Superman. Yes, it looks like another Terminator movie is indeed moving forward, and now it’s moving up to one of the biggest blockbuster periods of the year: Fourth of July weekend.
As a long time horror fan, I’m digging the fact that the genre has made a big comeback to TV. There used to be horror series and TV movies all the time back in the ‘70’s, and it’s nice to see it coming back round again.
The news just broke that JK Rowling is returning to the world of Harry Potter, but it won’t be a resurrection of Harry. It takes place “in the world,” as we geeks like to say, but it’s a spin off. In fact, to explain it all, Rowling just released a statement, promising what’s in store for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
With Sleepy Hollow, Revolution, and Under the Dome, horror and sci-fi genre TV is really hot right now, and it’s great to see genre shows going strong on the small screen. Dome, the TV adaptation of the Stephen King novel, has been growing strong with the viewers and critics, and by the time you read this, there will be some big twists at the end of season one.
Superman Vs Batman already has so many strikes against it, does anybody really have to make it any worse? A cruel joke went around the ‘net that Justin Bieber was reading the script in the hopes of playing Robin, and thank God this isn’t true, otherwise it’s a sure sign of the apocalypse.
The next installment of The Hunger Games is of course going to make big money at the box office. How big? What are the box office pundits predicting? Try $950 million world-wide.
As a big horror fan, it’s great to see the genre is still doing well, even if the movies these days leave a lot to be desired. While the genre has always had big peaks and valleys, right now it’s still on top at the box office, as Insidious 2 has proven.
In the grand scheme of classic cars, you can get a DeLorean relatively cheap compared to say, a Lamborghini, or a Rolls. And now you can get your DeLorean Back to the Futureized, except it won’t take you back in time of course.
Come on, geezers! Sylvester Stallone has cornered the market on wishful thinking for the olds. This trailer for Grudge Match has Rocky going up against Raging Bull. These guys are on the wrong side of 60, which is the new 30 apparently. Meaning that these guys are going to live to be 140 and we can look forward to Depends fights in the dining room of the seniors facility (that's a movie treatment I am working on right now).
Until cloning is perfected, directors will only be able to helm one film at a time. This is too bad for JJ Abrams, because even though he’s got three thousand productions in development, he’s now going to have to step down from directing Star Trek 3 because he’ll be too busy helming Star Wars.
Metallica’s concert film, Through the Never, is nearly upon us. It will receive the biggest IMAX opening release on October 27, and will spread out to more theaters after that. Seeing Metallica in IMAX 3D sounds like a great proposition, but how about another album?
When the last Harry Potter book came out, that was it for the franchise. The series was done, over, kaput. We all knew this, and there was no way of bringing it back. Or was there?
Where would we be without Dolby Stereo? Sound has certainly come a long way since then, but when Dolby came along, it was a huge step forward for movies. Try to imagine any amazing blockbuster you loved growing up without it.
HG Wells’s The Island of Dr Moreau is a story that’s been made three times as a movie. In Moreau, a mad doctor creates a cross between humans and animals, and the first big screen incarnation, Island of Lost Souls, was a big movie for Universal during the ‘30’s monster era.
The prospect of another Bill and Ted movie definitely has us salivating at TGD, and both Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves are onboard, doing everything they can to make it happen. Except now comes word there’s snags holding up one of the most anticipated comedy reunions since Cheech and Chong finally buried the hatchet.
Thanks to the movie incarnation of X-Men, which turned comic movies around big time, Professor Xavier’s mutants are more popular than ever. And thanks to Joss Whedon’s big screen version of The Avengers, superhero teams have never been hotter.
We’re not nuts about the prospect of a new Terminator movie here at TGD. Without James Cameron at the helm, the franchise is just not going to be up to its previous standards. And if Schwarzenegger comes back, who wants to see a Terminator pushing 70?
Fox is promoting its Fall sci-fi actioner, Almost Human, in this video feature. And, guess what? It looks like robot cops on television are going to beat Robocops on the movie screen, judging by a comparison of clips available. It is a J.J. Abrams production so you can expect a lot of lens flare but try not to let that put you off. Almost Human looks like must see TV.
Do we really need another Pirates of the Caribbean movie? A critic even joked that The Lone Ranger was essentially another Pirates flick, just in the West this time. But apparently there will indeed be another Pirates, just not as originally planned.
