Off Topic / Lessons from kids TV shows
« on: 29 March, 2010, 08:49:02 PM »
Watching a glut of kids DVDs and TV with my near 5-year old, I have learned that:

No matter how may train crashes there are or the devastation caused, 'luckily no one was hurt'.

Incompetent, bumbling postmen are unsackable, despite losing/finding/breaking/fixing your daily mail and involving the entire village.

Thanks to a certain little explorer girl, my son knows more Spanish than he does English, and only last week kept jumping in front of an automatic door shouting 'Abrir!'

If you were a stoner, 'Waybuloo' would be awesome ...

Off Topic / Scary happenings in Texas

America’s public school curriculum may be in for a Texas-sized overhaul, if the Lone Star state’s influential recommendations for changes to social studies, economics and history textbooks are fully ratified later this spring. Last Friday, in a 10-to-5 vote split right down party lines, the Texas State Board of Education approved some controversial right-leaning alterations to what most students in the state—and by extension, in much of the rest of the country—will be studying as received historical and social-scientific wisdom. After a public comment period, the board will vote on final recommendations in May.

The 'revised standards' they wish to introduce are mind-boggling.

Film & TV / QUARK - the TV show
« on: 04 March, 2010, 09:46:15 PM »
No, not the Ferengi from DS9, but a truly awful/wonderful short lived sci-fi TV show from the late 1970's.

Watch and weep:

General / God to Grud
« on: 25 February, 2010, 10:30:55 AM »
Reading the JD Restricted Files, a lot of the old strips have various characters uttering 'My God!' etc.

Without getting into a religious debate (Grud forbid) when was God replaced with Grud, and why ..?

Film & TV / Three films that would make Einstein blush
« on: 23 February, 2010, 05:06:32 PM »
An American physicist is calling for Hollywood producers to tone down the fanciful science in movies - and restrict themselves to just one scientific flaw per film. But which are the worst offenders when it comes to bad science films?

Film & TV / FLASH GORDON remake
« on: 22 February, 2010, 07:19:07 PM »
No matter what they do with this it'll NEVER be as good as the 1980 film:

Director Breck Eisner promises that his upcoming new Flash Gordon movie won't be a remake of the campy 1980 version or even the Buster Crabbe serials from the 1930s—and he promises it will be in 3-D.

"It's a movie that is in no way a remake or a re-imagining or a reboot of the '80s version or the serial version," Eisner told SCI FI Wire. "No Queen [music]. It is not camp in any way. We're going back to the original Alex Raymond [comic strip] scripts and imagining if he were living today, what would those strips be like?"

Eisner is moving forward on his new movie version of the classic sci-fi story. "Flash Gordon is a movie I've been pursuing for years, and I finally was able to orchestrate it going to Sony from Hearst," Eisner said while promoting his new sci-fi horror movie, The Crazies.

Eisner added: "We hired writers a year ago. I've been breaking story with them since I wrapped post on [The Crazies]. We've got an awesome, very long-form outline that they're now executing a script off of, which I should have in two months or so to the studio." It's unclear as of yet whether Flash Gordon will be Eisner's next movie.

Eisner is a longtime Flash Gordon fan with a strong vision of how Gordon should be brought into modern times.

Gordon will also enter the third dimension this time out: "It will definitely be in 3-D, unless they come out with 4-D before then," Eisner says with a laugh. The director adds that he is even testing a new binaural German 3-D sound system that could be employed for the film. "It's supposed to push 3-D to the next level," he says.

Cost is the primary obstacle the space hero will have to overcome. "It's a very expensive movie," admits Eisner. "Do they have and do they want to spend the kind of money it's going to take to pull this thing off?"

For now, Eisner is simply intent on developing the best filmic version of Flash Gordon possible. "It's one that I will be passionate enough about forever and will hope to be able to make," says Eisner. "It's action, it's adventure, it's intense, it's dynamic. It's a strong central character who goes on a dynamic journey. It should be a really amazing movie if we can get it made."

Eisner decided to go to space instead of the murky lagoons: He had originally been attached to a remake of the 1950s monster movie The Creature From the Black Lagoon. Eisner's The Crazies hits screens on Feb. 26.

Doesn't that sound like ...?

Besson Producing Orbital Prison Break Thriller

By Garth Franklin Friday February 12th 2010 05:30AM
 
Acclaimed short filmmakers Stephen St. Leger and James Mather ("Prey Alone") are attached to direct the 3D sci-fi actioneer "Section 8" for EuropaCorp reports Variety.

The $30+ million English-language project follows events when five hundred of the world's most dangerous prisoners unexpectedly awaken from a kind of suspended animation. The twist? Their 'prison' is in orbit 50 miles above the Earth.

The Irish filmmaking duo will produce along with Luc Besson. Shooting kicks off around April/May.
