The Time Travelers Wife stars Eric Bana as the chronologically displaced Henry Detamble and Rachel McAdams as His wife Claire. The endearing but sometimes complicated relationship between Clair and Henry translates reasonably well to the big screen. However, the overall plot is somewhat hurried, with some events seeming to be out of context or poorly explained
The SyFy Network premiered the newest spin-off of the beleaguered Stargate franchise this weekend. The new series “Stargate Universe” is considerably darker and grittier than the previous Stargate properties, all of which were campy and suffered from cliche after obvious cliche. The bottom line: Stargate Universe is a huge improvement over previous efforts.
I grew up in the late seventies and early eighties; the “summer blockbuster season” was definitely a product of my generation’s boredom. Maybe…
The Chicago Tribune Reports that the final portion of Battlestar Galactica will likely air in the first quarter of 2009 and that the final episode will be expanded to three hours. Additionally, it seems that at least one more Battlestar Galactica movie (similar to BSG: RAZOR) will be produced. It is unfortunate that such an acclaimed series has been plagued with these annoying mid-season breaks.
Well, the fourth and final season of Battlestar Galactica is finally here. On one hand I am sure you are all disappointed that this will be the end of BSG, but considering the state of the series I’m glad that no further harm can be done to what was once the finest show on television.
When I was a kid movies were advertised based on their content. Television spots would tempt you with tales of daring or high adventure. I remember a trailer for the first Indiana Jones movie, Raiders of the Lost Ark. The advertising basically outlined the entire plot of the film so that you the viewer, might know exactly why this movies was going to be exciting (and worth your cash at the box office). “Audiences pack theaters today to answer a burning question, not to see a great movie.”
AWESOMELY BAD MOVIESAll posts
Interstellar received a lot of praise from both critics and scientists. Seldom do I find a movie of such critical acclaim to be awesomely bad.
For reasons I may never truly understand, ParticleShock Actual decided my life wouldn’t be complete without witnessing the cinematic masterpiece that is “Tusk”.…
How can a movie starring Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix) and Sam Neill (Jurassic Park) possibly go wrong? In this 1997 sci-fi cult classic, an experimental space vessel takes a wrong turn at the planet Neptune and takes an inter-dimensional trip … to Hell!
Do you remember Westworld? I’m betting that you don’t because most of you don’t even remember rotary telephones. Rotary phones… You are aware that those existed right? There was a time before phones had buttons. Just like now is the time before evil robots overthrow the human race.
