Post-Apocalyptic Detroit

But this is for real. I find these photos both amazing and sad. The part of me that loves everything PA wants to shoot a movie there.


Tron Legacy

I saw it. It's awesome. It suffered from some corny one-liners and a misplaced Star Wars homage. But, all-in-all, this is a cool movie. The soundtrack is amazing. It is truly a visual treat. I'm so glad the box office is strong, maybe we'll get more.

Images of Khan

I was so pleased to have to an image of Khan on my last post. I decided to just add more. Enjoy.


No Khan?

It seems Khan will not be appearing in the sequel to Abrams' Star Trek. All I can say is that I'm pleased. I don't want Khan rebooted. Check out the article here. Oh, and give me a break that Star Trek is equal to The Wrath of Khan.

Christopher Nolan Talks Batman Title

It'll be "The Dark Knight Rises" and the Riddler is not the villian. Some people are complaining of course. But all I have to say is that Nolan is a genius and it will be good. Check it out here.

Ghost Rider 2

Really? I'd have thought everyone involved with the first one would have been banished from Hollywood. But what do I know? Let's just pray it's better or even just halfway decent. Here's a bit of info.

Movie producer and financier Avi Lerner

Here's a cool bit on a man who produced most of the movies I loved as a child. Read the article here.


Interview: Danny Boyle

I ran across this nice little tidbit. It's a short interview with director Danny Boyle at Hollywood.com.

Robopocalypse and Spielberg

Mr. Spielberg has decided to take on the end of the world against a robot hoard. And I'm for it! Anything that gets him back to science fiction is cool to me. Here's a bit from the article:

"Robopocalypse embodies an imaginative story of a robot rebellion unleashed against the human race," said Mark Sourian, who's announcing the project with his co-prexy Holly Bario. "This is a project we immediately sparked to and with Steven directing it we knew it was in the best possible hands to bring it to worldwide audiences."

Batman 3 And The 3D Craze

Here's an interesting bit about Chirstopher Nolan, 3D and the next Batman. Click to read.


James Horner on Star Trek II Score

Yeah, so this moive is my favorite. Yes, I like it more than any other movie ever made. Why? Because it's awesome! It is a finely crafted film that is also exciting and tremendous fun. Here's James Horner talking about the score which happens to be some of the best music for a movie ever.

Aliens Interviews and Special Features

This film blows me away. Everytime I watch Aliens it seems as fresh and new as the first time I watched it. Here's Cameron and Horner talking about it a bit.

Edgar Rice Burroughs Gets Adapted

I love ERB's Mars Series. Now, it's getting a comic treatment. The art looks nice and the interview with the comic writer is cool. Read the interview here.


Twenty Minutes into the Future...

For 14 exciting weeks when I was in Junior High those words in the post title started off one of the most unique TV shows ever: Max Headroom. Most people remember the Coke ad campaign featuring the computer video jockey, but the TV series is where real stuff was going down.

Cyberpunk before cyberpunk was cool, this show and it's technological commentary shattered the mold. Ground-breaking and even visionary, this show predicted much of our world looks like now. Twenty-four hour news? Check. The Internet? Check. Constant adverting? Check. Video pirates? Check. Five hundred TV channels competing for ratings? Check. And much, much more.

Visionary? Ground-breaking? Unique? Strange? So of course it was canceled after only 14 episodes. TV networks still haven't changed. If a show is ahead of it's time it has to go. You have to make room for that new cop show, right?

Finally though, Max Headroom is officially on DVD. If you've never seen it check it out now. Here's Max on You Tube.


Walter Koenig Returns To Comics

"Star Trek" and "Babylon 5" actor Walter Koenig will be writing a post-apocalyptic comic mini-series. The art style looks interesting and the story sounds like it should be cool. Check out the full story here.


Fallout: New Vegas - Oct.19th

It's not easy for me to put into words how excited I am for this game. I'm not a big gamer (video anyway), but I bought an Xbox just so I could play Fallout 3. So, yeah, I'm stoked. Check out offical news as well as the voice cast here. Michael Dorn and Ron Perlman! I love it!

Here are a few pics:
