The bigger problem to making a sequel is that they can't stop at just ONE sequel. If you break that seal and make a second movie then eventually there'll be a third and fourth and reboot. All too quickly does a franchise become a shadow of itself that all your friends disdain while you try to convince them, 'Oh but… »
I remember getting the impression when reading the Deep Space Nine companion that Michael Dorn found the cast very dour in comparison to his old TNG colleagues, ha. »
The Andromeda Strain, while not my personal cup of tea, has more style and cool dripping out of every orifice than any sci-fi film put together in the past 20 years. The fact that it manages to combine the stylistic flourishes with utter realism is an inspiration. Puts the likes of 'found footage' movies to shame. »
I don't think its that people have stopped fearing nuclear war. I think its that "peoples" fears change about once a month now. The media creates a buzz around a new hot topic scare every couple of weeks. Bird Flu, Ebola, Gun Control, ISIS. Not to say all of those things shouldn't be worried about, but the kind of… »
Nintendo's original Gameboy. And I'm saying that as a big Nintendo fan who spent most of his childhood squinting in joy at the games it could play. But even then I knew the screen was atrocious. Green on green. No back light. And an add-on magnifying lens attachment. Still, I could barely see anything on it. I love… »
In the meantime, y'all should check out Legend of the Galactic heroes. It's perhaps a little more War and Peace in space than Foundation, but it's a sweeping view of future history with some great characters that thread the story. Any TV producers looking to create something similar would do well to check it out.
100% agree. Even at that I was half thinking of giving her a pass... then I read that she hired psychics... »
Don't know if I'd put Wonderful 101 in the same category. There's not much work to do to control your crowd. They mostly just act like one mind. Great game though. »
Haha, if Walter White never got cancer, you can bet he'd be living his life like the property selling guy in that video. »
Matthewmatosis has a series on, 'Underrated Games,' which he tends to update sporadically. I guess the reason it isn't his main output (and why its not for most youtubers) is because you get more pageviews with bigger name franchises.
Definitely the best comic book movie. Emphasis on comic book. Sam Raimi's direction and Murawski's editing are like the snappy colourful pages of a comic brought to splendid life. I love The Dark Knight, but it's more the child of film tradition than comics. And the Avengers. Well. Joss Whedon certainly pointed a… »
Maybe it would work as some kind of modern science fiction version of Battleship Potemkin... there must be a couple thousand people on the planet who'd enjoy that. »
As others stated, he wasn't the director of that one. His latest was also quite good though. 'The Wind Rises.' »
