The War Is Here In Latest WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES Trailer!

When I’ve had the opportunity to speak with some of the FX legends of the 80’s that I grew up admiring, eventually the discussion goes to their biggest early influence. 90 percent of the time, the original 1968 PLANET OF THE APES is cited as the defining film that turned these artists toward the path […]

On Friday afternoon, word started spreading online that filmmaker Robert Rodriguez was “in talks” to direct the long in development remake of John Carpenter’s cult classic ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK. I held off on posting about it here, because “in talks” means just that. In talks. And that’s never a sure fire, done deal. In […]

Watch ROGUE ONE’s Finale Seamlessly Edited Into STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE’s Opening!

When it comes to the greatest, most bad-ass villains in cinema history, it’s tough for anyone to top Darth Vader. I mean, as a little kid, when I first saw the original STAR WARS, he terrified me!

Ranking the ALIEN Franchise: Worst to First

Ranking the ALIEN franchise is tough, and it isn’t tough due to mediocrity or an uneven nature to the franchise, it’s tough because every single film in the series has – at the very least – been good. That’s a rarity in this genre. But ALIEN has managed to make it happen, and that makes […]

It’s winter… and if you’re like me and you live in the Midwestern US, chances are things have been pretty gray. See, starting in November, Ohioans retreat to our homes, where we grow very pale and irritable. We long to go outside, but shudder at the idea of even crawling out of bed if it’s […]

What a Trip: Revisiting the Mind-Blowing Epic BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW

Sci-fi is better when it’s freaky. I’m all in favor of a good, rollicking spaceship adventure (who isn’t?), but science fiction, as a genre, tends to function more naturally when it’s dealing with freaky abstracts and barely-graspable Big Ideas.
