Some footage of the new Predator film "Predators" was released by 20th Century Fox.
To tell you the truth I didn't really think that this would be good or interseting at all.....but this footage shows some potential for it to be pretty damn good. Also the name is sort of a homage would you say to "Aliens" to sequel to "Alien" that seems like a good contrast. It looks good I'm liking this so far
If you haven't see the Aussie zombie flick 'Undead' then you might not have heard about the twin genre directors Michael and Peter Spierig. You will, though, if they get the success they deserve after their after second film 'Daybreakers'. This was done a few months ago during Fantastic Fest here in Austin, TX and was definitely one of the highlights of the event. Going back and listening to the interview again reminded me just how much Cyrus… Continue
James Cameron has given us some of the most influential films of the 20th century. He has pressed his name into many roles: producer, director, writer, and even editor. All of his films seem to have a few commonalities among them. But, he definitely has a staple in Sci Fi films. He began his career in film in the late 70s and early 80's and gave us such works as Terminator (1984), Aliens (1986), and The Abyss (1989). His inspiration for… Continue
When you hear someone claim that the weirdest films they've ever seen were at Fantastic Fest, they mean it! This past year alone brought in a notorious feature known as 'The Human Centipede' which tells the story of a professor who creates a 'human centipede' from three unfortunate young by sewing their mouths to another person's - well, I've let you use your imagination to finish that sentence.…
Pandorum ***1/2 out of **** Spill Rating: FULL PRICE!
I'm shocked right now. I am rarely surprised by any movie I see but Pandorum left me amazed by how good it was. Little marketing, a relatively small cast and not being screened for critics usually means the mark of crap but this time, the pattern is wrong. Pandorum is a refreshing taste of sci-fi/horror that the mainstream studios haven't put out in years. Its scary,… Continue
After the Sci-Fi channel announced it would be be changing its name to SyFy, bloggers everywhere (including here) fired off en masse decrying the move by NBC/Universal as boneheaded, arrogant, and disrespectful to the genre it was trying to describe. To many, the change from Sci-Fi to SyFy was a corporate move to squeeze more money out of the channel by broadening its audience with light,… Continue

My rating: Some Ol’ Bulls**t!
I have never been one to buy into the whole classic thing. I don’t like films just because some critic says it is a legend in cinema.
So on to a film I don’t like.
When a four-million-year-old black monolith is discovered on the moon, the government sends a secret team of scientists in to investigate. Eighteen months… Continue
Whenever I am asked what my guilty pleasure is, apart from a strange liking of folk guitar, this film always pops up. It is terrible. It took 100 million to put it out there and it made 101 million. It’s jaw droppingly bad. Yet for some reason this movie is something you can lie back, disconnect your jaw, and dribble along to. It’s so bad it’s… Continue
