Star Trek Into Skepticism (Now, with Angels!)

Star Trek Into Skepticism (Now, with Angels!)

I am one of those Star Trek fans who hated the J.J. Abrams reboot movie. I know, I know. Bad geek. Bad, bad geek! How could I not like the new rugged Kirk, the sexy Uhura, the analytic but kick-ass Spock, the very Bones-y Bones? When I want to watch an action movie, I’ll choose from any […]

World War Whoa!

Okay, I have a few concerns* about the movie adaptation of World War Z, but this trailer is awfully good. Awfully. Good. *I still don’t buy Brad Pitt as an action hero, or even as a leading man. He doesn’t command my attention when he’s on-screen. I’m not thrilled that they narrowed a book of […]

Seriously, folks. We have to wait a year for this, and we have yet to see Smaug.

Pirates of the Caribbean 4 – So, Pirate Zombies Again Is It?

The trailer to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which is the fourth movie in the franchise, is out and it looks pretty solid. The movie is based on a superlative novel called (surprise!) On Stranger Tides, by Tim Powers. If the movie hews close to the book, then it will likely be the […]

I’m going to have a hard time waiting until 2011 for this movie to get released. “The Whisperer in Darkness” is another adaptation of a very good H.P. Lovecraft story done by the same folks who turned “The Call of Cthulhu” into a very entertaining silent movie. Here’s the second trailer (the first is here). […]

Hollywood, I’m warning you. Don’t you do this. Don’t you dare do this. I realize I can’t stop you from releasing this theatrical assault on the childhoods of millions of good Americans, this Gulf Oil Spill of cultural ruination you are about to visit on the pelicans and little baby turtles that we call our […]

Gird your loins, Narnia fans. The trailer for the next movie in C.S. Lewis’ wonderful world is out and it looks pretty good. Off-screen are the two eldest Pevensie kids and in is a new cousin (this will be no shock to you Lewis aficionados). You won’t get any large-scale battle scenes, but there looks to […]

There is a right way and a wrong way to look at birds. This is the wrong way. Apparently, this Godawful waste of celluloid has become a minor cult hit, for reasons I can not fathom. I know from good cult movies and this one doesn’t come close to qualifying. It has no redeeming feature, […]

I can’t say I’m a dedicated watcher of the Justice League cartoons, but what episodes I’ve seen I’ve really liked. I missed the part of Geek School that involved comic books, so I admit I’m behind the curve, but I do like a good superhero story. This seems to be a good one. I do […]

As I said in the last episode of The Delivery, filmmakers make a big mistake when they try to “update” an 80s action show or cartoon for a modern audience. They tend to forget that cheesiness was an integral part of most of those shows. When you treat a show far more seriously than it […]
