Elysium (Film Review)

Otomo started as one of the most promising young manga artist/writers during the late 1970’s. By the 80’s he had cemented a position as a bonafide star with his highly acclaimed  series, about a haunted apartment complex, Domu. In 1982, Otomo launched the […]


New Top Secret Scifi Project Coming from Fede Alvarez

Fede Alvarez, the director of the not-as-terrible-as-everyone-expected Evil Dead, has just sold a top secret science fiction project to MRC. The jury still seems to be out on whether or not people feel that he did a good job with Evil Dead. I thought that it wasn’t great but I enjoyed the cartoony aspects of the narrative symbolism. Well, Alvarez has sold a project to MRC that he’ll be co-writing […]


Seven Days Film Review

Seven Days may be one of the most underrated television shows of all time. It was smart, funny, dramatic and knew exactly what it was trying to be. The series, unfortunately failed to find a mainstream audenience and was canceled after three seasons. The series centered on former convict Frank B Parker, who, as a means of commuting the rest of his sentence, has been enrolled in Project Backstep, a […]

Dredd is one of those films that everyone loves but nobody turned out to see in the theatres. Well, now you can do your part. You can sign up to the official 2000AD Dredd Sequel petition.

Part of the film’s failure could be attributed to the fact that Dredd has very little mainstream credibility stateside. […]

New Featurette Shows Off The “Tech Of Elysium”

Neil Blomkamp is one of if not the most interesting filmmakers currently working. Every single project he comes up with is fiercely original. His steadfast dedication to original intellectual property is both commendable and inspiring. The man has been offered Star Wars, Halo, and World of Warcraft and he’s turned them all down to work on his own ideas. That’s the kinda filmmaker I want to see more of. Someone […]


New Mad Max Video Game Looks Stunning

Mad Max is a strange nebulas area for me. I adore the films. They’re wonderfully executed masterpieces. Even Beyond Thunderdome. I’ll defend that flick till my dying breath. This being said, I loath Mel Gibson. The man is disgusting, repugnant and a bigot. I refuse to watch anything he’s in. BUT I LOVE MAD MAX. Now you see where my problem lies. I’m torn between the love of Max and […]

Michael Mann’s The Keep (Film Review)

The Keep is one of those special films that is seemingly secreted away by the film world. It’s virtually unknown in both nerd B-movie aficionado circles and mainstream audiences. It’s in that nebulas gray area. It’s a film that isn’t crappy enough to be loved with irony and it isn’t quality enough to be heralded as a revolutionary step forward. Thus, it’s nearly lost to the sands of time. The […]
