I have a confession to make -- I did not see Star Wars until the film's re-issue in 1983! Yeah, I know, I know. But, I rarely went to see ANY movies as a child. And, with the exception of Superman: The Movie, most of the movies we went to see were movies my parents or their friends wanted to see. I never missed going out to movies, as I was so surrounded by toys, TV shows, books and comic books that I was occupied most of the time. So, it was not until my friend Cully's 14th birthday in 1983 that I actually saw the film. Read more...

When that familiar music hits and the well dressed, suave man walks across the screen, draws his gun and shoots at the screen...you know what you’re in for! It’s James Bond, and for decades he’s been a staple of pop culture! After 26 films and 7 actors portraying the character, Bond is a franchise like no other, with legions of fans worldwide. Daniel Craig’s run as 007 has just released its 4th installment (possibly his last) called Spectre, and it’s already breaking box office records! Read more...

To be hot or not to be hot isn't really the question you need to be asking. It either is hot or it's not hot and if you're not sure never fear that's why we're here, to find out what was hot this week and what was not hot. We can certainly agree that mother nature's distribution skills are not hot. She dumps all the rain in Texas and leaves California still pondering ways to treat their sewage water into drinking water. Yes ladies and gentlemen this is how we're starting off our weekend by talking about drinking poo water. What can be more bizarre than the thought of drinking sewage water? The thought that devils are the instrument of the devil. Just so you know, in the UK erasers are called rubbers. That's right, rubbers. Go ahead and keep laughing because if you put it all together what Guy Claxton is saying is this, rubbers are an instrument of the devil. Claxton is a cognitive scientist and he believes rubbers, or erasers, create a “a culture of shame about error. It's a way of lying to the world, which says 'I didn't make a mistake, I got it right the first time.'” WHA!? Read more...

d4Often times when our favorite book becomes a movie, the purist is the first to scream foul (usually with good reason). However even the staunchest purist would be hard pressed to be enraged at the anomalies to their creed, when purism fails. Welcome to part two of my series on how strict adherence to a source material can be detrimental to a new piece of art or transcendence of the original. Last week we looked at Blade Runner – the adaptation of Philip K Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep and how Ridley Scott’s vision for film after all the difficulties and deviation from the source material facilitated Blade Runner to evolve into a grand metaphor never captured in the novella and artistically unto its own something special. So let’s get this monkey smoking…   Read more...

" It is as if GOD had created the devil -- and he gave him -- JAWS !! " jaws 1That is a great line,  from a great commercial from a GREAT movie  JAWS !  Jaws  premiered in 1975, and is famous for making so many people NOT wanting to go into the water. JAWS did for swimming what " Deliverance " did for camping and " Psycho" did for showers. JAWS was based on a book by Peter Benchley.  Some of Benchley's OTHER novels  " The Deep" and " The Island"  were also utilized for the movies, based on the success of the movie JAWS. In the summer of 1975 copies of JAWS were EVERYWHERE !! Whole spinner racks would be taken up by copies of this one book. The movie was phenomenal and led to several sequels. Of course, none of them succeeded in living up to the original. JAWS , by its very nature , is and must be a very VISUAL movie. Much of the story is visual. You have to SEE the impact of the shark attacks, you must see the evidence left behind in the shark's wake. This builds the presence of the shark , even though we do NOT see the shark throughout the early part of the movie.   Read more...

jaws-reboot-209x300I own the website At Tha Movies which syndicates the latest movie, comic-book and gaming headlines from the most popular websites on the internet (including eXpertComics!). Last month, we started syndicating media jobs from over 2,000 employers  in the UK and US. This has ended up being a very popular feature on the  website and it's staggering how many positions become available each  day. This is due to a number of different factors, each worthy of an  article in themselves. Once in a while, a job will catch my eye: one which may present a  'scoop' or tidbits of information about new films or television  programs. One such job listing recently caught my eye and is as follows: The production co ZAS Media is proud to announce our upcoming project for the Spring of 2014 - JAWS (reboot).     Read more...
