Terminator Genisys review

Lets face it: You’re probably not very excited about the new Terminator movie. And why should you be? The last two films were varying levels of bad, and this one doesn’t look much better. The marketing focuses on a much older-looking Arnold Schwarzenegger, who seems to be regurgitating catch phrases from decades past for what might seem to be nothing more than a paycheck. And maybe that works in Terminator Genisys‘ favor, as it is much easier to beat expectations when they are low.

I was pleasantly surprised by Terminator Genisys, and I think you will be too. So here is my (virtually) spoiler free Terminator Genisys reaction, giving you my thoughts and observations about the latest installment in the Terminator franchise. Read my Terminator Genisys review after the jump.

Pixels featurettes

Summer isn’t even halfway over, so there are still plenty of big movies coming to theaters in the next couple months. And surprisingly enough, one of the more entertaining films could end up being an Adam Sandler vehicle. Maybe I’m in the minority, but the trailers for the video game inspired action adventure comedy Pixels actually have me a little excited for this July release, despite the involvement of Sandler.

And if you’ve been wanting to know a little more about the film from director Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone), a couple new featurettes have surfaced, diving into the 8-bit assault on Earth. Watch the Pixels featurettes after the jump! Read More »

Rooney Mara Utopia

Even as one of David Fincher‘s HBO series hits the skids, another appears to be picking up steam. Videosyncrazy, the music video industry comedy formerly called Living on Video and then Video Synchronicity, halted production a couple weeks ago, midway through shooting the first season. While we wait to hear if that show has died for good, or is just being reworked, there’s word on forward motion for Fincher’s other proposed HBO show.

Fincher is working with Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn to adapt the UK series Utopia for HBO. Now Rooney Mara, whose career was given a major boost when Fincher chose her to play Lisbeth Salander in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, is in talks for a role. Read More »

LEGO Jurassic Park visitor center

Since Jurassic World is all the rage right now, there’s been plenty of nostalgia looking back at the original Jurassic Park. But we’ve yet to see a resurgence of toys dedicated to the original Steven Spielberg dinosaur adventure. However, that could change with a little bit of help from fans.

There’s a project that just surfaced at LEGO Ideas that has an awesome building block version of the visitor center from Jurassic Park. It’s an impressive set that actually has some pretty clever moving parts that allow you to see inside the visitor center, where more than a few pivotal locations from the film have been recreated.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Chris Pratt training raptors at a children's hospital

In addition to having the biggest box office opening of all-time last weekend, Jurassic World also sparked a fun new meme. Audiences have already seen Chris Pratt as raptor trainer Owen Grady, having a special bond with his dinosaur pals, and zookeepers decided to turn one particular moment from Grady’s raptor whispering into a sensational meme.

Well, now Pratt has topped them all by appearing in a photo where he’s training even more cunning creatures of this world. And they’re not going to let him get away so easily. See Chris Pratt training raptors at a children’s hospital after the jump! Read More »

Universal Hulk rights

Back in April, during publicity rounds for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, some new information surfaced regarding the future of The Incredible Hulk, and whether or not Marvel Studios had plans for Mark Ruffalo to get his own solo Hulk movie.

A somewhat surprising reason surfaced as to why a new Hulk movie wasn’t in the works. Ruffalo said that Universal (which made the two previous big-screen outings for the big guy) still had the rights to any future Hulk movies, putting a kink in any plans Marvel might have. However, it turns out that’s not entirely true, and Universal may not be holding up Marvel at all. Find out more about the Universal Hulk rights after the jump! Read More »

Jurassic World apatosaurus

While there’s a lot of love out there for Jurassic World, one can’t help but wish that the massive blockbuster sequel was a little more loyal to the original Jurassic Park by having more practical dinosaur effects.

Digital effects bring most of the dinosaurs to life in Jurassic World, but at least one pivotal scene made use of an impressive animatronic apatosaurus, for what is probably the most believable dinosaur sequence in the entire movie. And now you can find out how they brought the apatosaurus to life. Watch the Jurassic World apatosaurus featurette after the jump! Read More »
