On Terminator: Rise of the Machines

On Terminator: Rise of the Machines

Continuing from The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day is Terminator: Rise of the Machines. It is also the first Terminator film not being directed, written, or produced by James Cameron. The T-X is very clearly an Evil Demon Seductress (see Feminist Frequency‘s #4). According to the Deep Focus Review: James Cameron is some kind of … Continue reading

On Masters of the Universe

On Masters of the Universe

Featuring Robert Duncan McNeill (Star Trek: Voyager), Frank Langella (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Meg Foster (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Xena: Warrior Princess), and Courteney Cox (Scream film series), Masters of the Universe is a terrible cheesy movie, though it tries to be something. It’s an 80s movie. According to the Digital Spy article, “In … Continue reading

A Special Look at: The Witch’s Familiar

A Special Look at: The Witch’s Familiar

After last week’s rip-roaring adventure, it was probably inevitable that the conclusion to this two-parter would be a bit of a letdown. What IGN‘s review of this reveals is certainly akin to my own sentimentality.  As the TV.com review continues: There’s no way around this one: this climax was dumb. Daleks turning on one another is … Continue reading

On Judge Dredd

On Judge Dredd

Judge Dredd is really not about “Dredd the character as we know him,” but being more Systerstor-Stallone-film-with-Seamus-Harper (see Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda on Harper). It’s a very, very poor film with only some brief basis of the British Comic 2000 AD.   According to the Bloody Film review: Dredd 3D hit theatres last weekend, and while it didn’t … Continue reading

On The Chronicles of Riddick

On The Chronicles of Riddick

Somewhat a sequel to Pitch Black, The Chronicles of Riddick features Karl Urban (Doom, The Bourne Surpremacy, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Xena: Warrior Princess), Colm Feore (Pearl Harbor, Chicago, Thor), Alexa Davalos (Angel), Peter Williams (Apophis in Stargate SG-1), and Thandie Newton (The Pursuit of Happyness).   According to the CinemaBlend review: Gritty, space oriented Science Fiction almost seems … Continue reading

The Best and Worst of Charmed: Season 6

The Best and Worst of Charmed: Season 6

Season 8 Season 7   One of the characters I couldn’t help but notice was Richard Montana, a love interest of Paige. His family was a feud with their neighbors, the Callaways. This bears similarity to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Richard’s struggle with magic is also similar to two different characters from others series: Willow … Continue reading

On Pitch Black

On Pitch Black

Featuring Claudia Black (Stargate SG-1, Farscape), and Cole Hauser (Good Will Hunting), Pitch Black is a pretty awesome film that developed a cult following.   According to the IGN review: A passenger spaceship is hit by a rogue asteroid or comet and is forced to make a crash landing on a strange, barren planet that has … Continue reading

On In and Out

On In and Out

Featuring Shawn Hatosy (The Faculty), Lauren Ambrose (Torchwood: Miracle Day), Selma Blair (Cruel Intentions, Legally Blonde), the late Debbie Reynolds, and directed by Frank Oz (Follow That Bird, Little Shop of Horrors, The Muppets Take Manhattan, The Muppet Christmas Carol), In & Out is certainly qualifies as one of the sweetest social commentaries on gay American at the … Continue reading

On Men in Black II

On Men in Black II

Continuing from Men in Black is Men in Black II, as the film series is based on the Malibu/Marvel comic book series The Men in Black by Lowell Cunningham. According to the Mental Floss article, “15 Out-of-This-World Facts About Men in Black“: On July 2, 1997, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones teamed up as Agents … Continue reading

On Mama’s Family

On Mama’s Family

Do I know a thing or two about white trash? Certainly, other than my own family I had the pleasure of watching Mama’s Family on TV. Arguably, it can be different to figure which was more ridiculous and dumb, my own family or Mama’s. Probably my own. The series is based upon The Carol Burnett Show‘s … Continue reading
