IESB is “reporting” that a new Star Wars trilogy is in the works:

“The ideal plan, according to our spy at Skywalker Ranch, is to be able to release a new Star Wars film within 24 months after the release of the last re-re-release (is that right?) of Return of the Jedi 3D. Too early for story details but one thing that our source is certain about, they will not be prequels but instead sequels. It’s not for certain if they will be the long awaited Episodes 7, 8 and 9 but could instead be Episodes 10, 11 and 12 or possibly even further out in the Star Wars timeline. And by giving space in the timeline, possibly even as far as 100 years or 1,000 years in the Star Wars universe future, Lucas avoids having to make these stories “fit in” with what the previous stories have told.” (more…)

When reviewing a film it’s easy to get caught up in broad generalizations, to be caught up in your deep love or utter disdain for it. The art of film reviewing is a happy marriage between being subjective and objective. You are charged with the duty of endorsing or condemning this piece of art, and being fair isn’t usually a first response. Rather, we respond from our gut or our heart: shooting from the hip and asking questions later. However, the responsible reviewer will offer a fair opinion: an opinion based on examples from the film, specific analysis of scenes or actors or cinematography or directing or any of the many facets of the film. The responsible reviewer is trying to edify the film, to offer insight or constructive criticism, to be “fair and balanced.” I say all this because, in my review of Ultraviolet, I find being responsible nearly impossible.

“He had everything except desire."

I own hundreds of movies. An entire wall in my extra bedroom is filled with every type of movie you can imagine. But I don’t watch any of them as much as Gattaca. Most people have seen it. It’s not like it’s some underground indie film. Most everyone remembers it as a sci-fi movie, with that chick from Kill Bill, about the dangers of genetic manipulation. Well yes, it is set in the future and indeed Uma Thurman was in it. But it was not ABOUT genetics. Not really. It was about something much more important and there was nothing futuristic about it. The same story could have been told set in the 1950’s, and in way, it kind of was. (more…)

Trailer Review:
[Reviewed by: Alex Miller]

Sharktopus is a new film directed by Martin Scorcese featuring 3-time Academy Award Winning….wait WRONG MOVIE! Sharktopus is a new piece of shit directed by who cares to be featured on my spelling check’s least favorite channel, The SyFy Channel. I can’t wait! This is obviously an homage to the classic B-Movies I grew up watching on Mystery Science Theater 3000. This has got the “So Bad it’s Good” stink all over it. I mean check it out! The “Sharktopus” gets out and starts walking around on land. Nevermind the ridiculousness of mixing a shark with an octopus. Even if you could do it, why would it then be able to breath air and walk on land? That’s like mixing an elephant with a donkey only to find out it’s got a pretty good backstroke. IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE!!! That’s exactly why this is going to be awesome. Here’s hoping Rifftrax makes a commentary for it, just to make it all the more perfect.

Post your “Sharktopus Drinking Game” ideas in the comments!

"Stupid People!"

Plan 9 From Outer Space is a very, very special film. It is the creation of a very, very special film maker. Directed, produced and written by the legend himself, Ed Wood, it is as good…or as bad… as you ever imagined. (more…)

Here’s sort of a funny backhanded homage to Data, one of my favorite Sci-Fi characters of all time. (Little Known Fact: Brent Spiner, who played Data, actually co-wrote the story for the movie Star Trek: Nemesis)
