Greetings! ScoreKeeper here giving a quick call to all LA based AICN movie score geeks. Many of you may already know about this but just in case I thought I'd let you know that John Debney will be signing copies of his latest score for PREDATORS (2010) released by La-La Land Records. PREDATORS creature performer Brian Steele will also be in attendance. The signing will take place Saturday, July 10th, at 5:00PM at Dark Delicacies (3512 W. Magnolia) in Burbank, California. THAT'S TOMORROW! For more information check out iFMagazine.com or Dark Delicacies or La-La Land Records. Hey...what are these three red dots on my chest?

    Hahaha just realized

    by Series7

    Like Wolfman this year, that poster also copied the Spawn poster. I wonder if the Spawn poster is a copy of something? <P>http://www.publispain.com/posters/spawn.jpg

    Silvestri should SUE

    by darthpigman

    "Predator theme by Alan Silvestri" huh? Debney's entire score is made up of Silvestri's themes and motives. The credit is an outrage.

    It's not just that, its the side they chose also the fact that it just says the title just like Spawn. Like I said Spawn could be a copy of something. Predators at least is the whole body check out the Wolfmen poster, its the exact same thing. And like I said Spawn could've been some copy of something. Fuck all three posters could be done by the same company/person and that's just their thing. <P> Wolfmen Poster: <P> http://tinyurl.com/2egw4bd <P> Compare that to the Spawn poster. You can't say they aren't pretty fucking similar. Plus all three movies are on sort of the same level, cheesy almost B-Level monster movie. Not saying that's a bad thing that's just what they are.

    Why didn't they just get Silvestri to do the Score??

    by Tim Tringle

    He just did the score to the A-Team so he is available, I don't see why they just couldn't get him to do it instead of Debney. And darthpigman, just get a grip already. At least the music sounded like it belonged in a predator movie. You want someone to bitch to, then go tell Danny Elfman to die in a fire over the lame ass Terminator Salvation soundtrack.

    Had a bit of a long weekend, but I'm back. <p> Geez, peeps and peebs are out for blood with Predators from the looks of it! Like I said last week, it's not bad at all, just ends up being one of those smaller affairs. But considering the stupid stuff people are saying in other threads at the moment, I'm steering clear of it. <p> And it's not spoiling anything as it was in the trailers to say that all this guff about naming it PredatorS being an affront is a bit over the top, and sorta myopic when everybody realises that it applies to the HUMANS too. Or even just them. Irony, geddit? I actually thought that was pretty cool. <p> Fuzzy, did you have the same Fishburne experience as I did last week?

  • July 12, 2010, 2:33 p.m. CST

    Ah, yes.

    by ColonelFatheart

    Batman pregnant with Superman's child is a symbol for assimilation. That Batman is grinning menacingly clearly indicates that the artist has negative opinions of America's cultural hegemony. To the artist, it is a problem that transcends even geographic limits.

    Hmmm, it's much more complex

    by Asimov_Lives

    then I initially thought. Indeed, Batman is the epitome of masculinity saved for the large baby bump. A perfect dichotomy of masculine/feminine. Muscular body symbolizing masculinity and baby bump representing ultimate in femininity, pregnancy. Superman is physically masculinity, but his position is submissive and his demeanor feminine.

    i just found out that although ive been doing a hell of a job on WHO TARD'D (if i do say so myself), i couldnt leave well enough alone<P>i found out that while the vast majority of the serials are on DVD, a scant few are on VHS and in the case of the ones that are lost forever (due to their shortsightedness--they also erased the apollo 11 moon landing!!!, the BBC have released the soundtrack masters on CD.<P>so now i am at a crossroad, i am going to trek on with the DVD serials and when (and if) I get the VHS and CDs, I will do those too, which, due to the timeline of the interlibrary loans, wont be chronological. It will be noted in the review when it is audio-only.<P>this massive project i undertook just got a little more massive.<P>wheres michael bay when you need him? i need a SHIT JUST GOT REAL swooping camera shot.

    by FlickaPoo

    ...words are inadequate to the task. If the artist could have expressed himself in words, I'm sure he or she would have done so...but clearly words are insufficient.<P> Only Art can adequately express such contradictions.

    The rubenesque figure of Batman

    by FlickaPoo

    ...the image has a definite Holy Family/Mother And Child feel...I just hadn't come up with a theory yet.<P> Of course, visibly pregnant (pre-birth) nativity scenes are rare in art history due to the sexual implications, overtones, undertones, and innertones of the pregnant belly.

    Reminiscent of medieval Madonna with Child paintings

    by Asimov_Lives

    The pregnant belly is visually representative of a giant breast with the outy belly button acting as surrogate nipple. Superman assumes the role of submissive child in worship of Batman the Madonna figure's breastlike belly. Ther Earth and sun mirror the roundness of the breast.

    UP does not exist in this dojo

    by Cobra--Kai

    UP mini-review by The Dojo.<p> This wasn't one I took my 5yr old daughter to at the theater, and i'm glad of it. I wish my grandfather had been alive to take tho... This is a kids cartoon - for grown ups. I LOVED IT.<p> A quick check on Wiki proves i'm not alone. UP scored 98% on Rotten Tomatoes and is actually Pixars second highest grossing film after FINDING NEMO (given the 'old man' protagonist that really suprises me).<p> I've watched it on Blu Ray and have eaten up the extras too. There's a fun 5 min piece that shows what Doug the Dog was up to before he hooked up with the old man, but more thrillingly there's a travelogue doc that follows the Pixar animators on a trip to Venezuala.<p> I'm a bit of a travel junkie and am now ready to book tickets straight away to visit the Tepui - the flat topped mountains that form the inspiration for UP. What an incredible, alien landscape. Flying there by balloon house would be cooler still, hehe.<p> Five stars out of five from The Dojo.

    Mac, I kinda felt lukewarm when the disc landed on my doorstep, but the movie won me over. I guess when a team of animators are all pulling in the same direction you can conjure magic from it. Pixar just seem to really have their shit together in that regard.<p> Might have to take a trip to TOY STORY 3 now...

    Just read Edward Norton's statement..

    by Fuzzyjefe

    over at Hitfix as reported by ol' Moriarity. Classy stuff. It SUCKS, 'caused I was REALLY wanting to see the cast they could have assembled for a COMIC BOOK MOVIE, but that's the business of show I guess. <p> I mean, think about it: Downey, Jackson, Norton, Scarjo, Evans, Kirkdaddy (sorry, can't recall, too lazy to look), and Renner (maybe even the Cheadle)...who ever thought that we'd live to see quality like that in a COMIC BOOK MOVIE? I know, there are what some would call 'weak links' in there, but that's a pretty impressive lineup. <p> Here's hoping they give us a quality Banner (doubt he'll be in it much), 'cause if Hulk's gonna be a/the heavy for the film, Banner's reaction to the carnage will be an important element. I hope. C'mon Mr Whedon, deliver please. <p> And all this Pixar talk reminds me....Disney needs to do what they can to 'convince' Pixar to do a 'Power Pack' film. It's just about the most perfect Marvel property for them to sink their oh-so-talented teeth into.

    If your gonna carry a firearm...make it a real one

    by MacReady452

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon sheriff's office says an 87-year-old woman who died after a deputy used a stun gun on her during a confrontation was armed with a pellet gun, not a real handgun. Clackamas County sheriff's deputies Steve Shelly and Alan Alderman responded to a call Thursday about a woman threatening a man working on a water line at the Boring, Ore., mobile home park where she lived. The department says Phyllis Owens briefly set down the gun but picked it up again as deputies approached. That's when Shelly used a stun gun to disarm her. Sheriff's Lt. Paul Steigleder II said Monday the deputies and other witnesses thought the pellet gun was a "fully functioning firearm." Owens died about an hour after being shocked. An autopsy determined heart disease was the cause of death. The county's major crimes team is investigating.

    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Mickey Mouse mask-wearing protesters were among about 325 union members and supporters who demonstrated against Disneyland over a hotel employee contract dispute. Protesters on Monday wore masks colored with a black eye to represent the union's message that Disney is the black eye of Anaheim, where the amusement park is located. About 2,100 Disney hotel employees have worked without a contract for about two and a half years and there have been periodic protests. The main sticking point is health care costs. Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown says it's unfortunate that the union "continues to focus its energy on protesting" rather than ensuring its members have the security of a contract.

    by Six Demon Bag

    THE REIGN OF TERROR<P>FIRST DOCTOR. 1964. SEASON 1. SERIAL 8.<P>this is one of those missing serials, available in a truncated visual feast, with two eps gone completely or in full audio enjoyment.<P>i (and my OCD) chose the latter so lets get into it.<P>the doctor and crew (ian, barb and susan) land in england, promising to take barbara and ian back home. they each say their tearful goodbyes and ian even offers to buy the good doctor a drink. Not long after they step outside, they realize they arent in 1960s england but rather 18th century france. they stumble onto an olf farmhouse and take a gander inside. Before long the doctor, upstairs, is knocked out by a mysterious figure and the others taken hostage. they are rebels evading the soldiers who eventually surround the farmhouse.<P>in the skirmish, the two rebels are killed and ian, susan, and barb are taken prisoner and ordered to meet the guilloteen in the morn for being traitors.<P>as the soldiers depart, they burn the farmhouse down, not knowing the good doctor is inside.<P>a boy from nearby hears and helps the doctor out of the burning farm and points him in the direction to paris. meanwhile, the two girls are led to be executed while ian hangs out in his cell, inexplicably getting a stay of execution. en route to their death, the caravan is hijacked by some more rebels who rescue the girls and take them back to a safehouse. ian escapes from the cell cause the jailer is an idiot who leaves the key in the cell door. and the doctor makes his way into the prison by pretending to be someone he isnt. but the head jailer is a little more wary and asks him to hang out until robespierre shows his crazy ass.<P>ian joins up the girls, but not for long cause barb takes a sick susan to the doctor, who immediately reports them to the authorities, who in turn, capture them and take them to the prison where the doctor is.<P>the doc eventually tricks the jailer into turning barbara loose, in hopes of sending the rebels to free the time travelers. a soldier then confronts the doctor and demands him to take him to the safehouse, which he suprisingly does.<P>when they get there, the soldier states that he is conspiring a coup with some other chaps, one of whom is freakin napoleon!<P>in exchange for help, the revolters allow susan to be freed from prison and the coup is a success. as they leave town towards the TARDIS, the gang see a shackled robespierre led into prison.<P>all in all, this was a rollicking good time. its a shame i couldnt watch the damned thing. but the audio presentation was much better than i feared and i am actually forward to the many many audials in the coming weeks--the first two doctors got the short end of th stick in terms of missing serials.<P>NEXT: THE SPACE MUSEUM.

    or just not touch Star Wars for 10-20 years. <P> I'm all for leaving the history as history. I did see the Star Wars special editions in the 90s, and thought they were cool. But getting older, and looking back, I think they did more harm than good. Why change history? Why not leave the films as they were; a look into cinema from the late 70s/early 80s. It's almost like "1984" in that The Party is constantly revising history. I prefer the original Star Wars movies, warts (if you can call them warts) and all.

I just want to be able to see those babies as they were born, before the botched plastic surgeries. <p> I know I still have the VHS copies of the OT as they were, but those are gonna wear out one day. And I read so many negatives about the DVD releases I wasn't gonna spend my money on em. Give us the OT on Blu, cleaned the hell up.

    by D.Vader

    Eyes were still closed, umbilical still attached and blackened and dried. I tried to feed it, looked up what to do. Luckily my mom knows someone whose cat just delivered and I took it to her and sure enough, the mom started fostering the little guy. I was told I have first dibs on him if I want him. Its certainly an option. <p> GF always wanted a dog, but a small hypoallergenic one since she's allergic.. We were looking into getting one.

    WHO TARD'D

    by Six Demon Bag

    THE CHASE<P>FIRST DOCTOR. 1965. SEASON 2. SERIAL 16.<P>whoa! talk about epic. picking up directly after the previous serial, the doctor and crew use that device (i knew it!) to watch past events, like a television. off to the next adventure, they land on a desert planet and take a stroll. after ian and vicki get trapped and with no hope of the docot and barb finding them, they rush back to the TARDIS to see daleks embarking in a TARDIS of their own to exterminate them. the doctor, realizes they are on their way and apparently mean business.<P>slightly slowed by an evening sandstorm (take that you silly lil daleks!) the daleks converge on the time travelling posse, who who rejoined and escape in the TARDIS. but the daleks pursue after them.<P>up next, the two groups make numerous stops through time and space, one in NY, one on a transtlantic ship. they even run into dracula and frankenstein (i shit you not!). at the final stop, the land on a machine planet, barely inhabitable and are captured by mechanoids. they choose to go with them, rather than being killed by the daleks on their ass and meet an shipwrecked astronaut. apparently hes been held captive by the mechanoids who have been building a city for yet-to-arrive colonists. the mechanoids, not wanting to waste their resources, demand that they remain in the city...at least until the daleks starts wrecking havoc.<P>a robot fight ensues (george lucas could learn a thing or two from inanimate objects fighting here and actually making it look good)and all are killed.<P>well not all, but all the robots at least. the doctor and gang (sans astonaut--they ditched him)high tail it to the TARDIS, conveniently parked next to the dalek model TARDIS. ian and barbara ask the doctor to show them how to use the device to go back home, which he objects to. he has no problem leaving his granddaughter in a post apocalyptic city but now he grows some morals. in the end, he does show them the way to go home, cause frankly ian could use a drink.<P>ian and barb return to their time and place and destroy the dalek TARDIS and then do a benny hill montage around london, which the doctor and vicki have been watching on the TV.<P>watching the couple finally make it home is bittersweet. im happy for them and glad there was some closure in their story, unlike susan. though rusty at first, the chemistry between the main cast eventually gelled and i was starting to enjoy it. this was a great serial, one that would be great for an adaptation or at least a great season finale, which with one episode left in the second season, easily couldve been.<P>NEXT: THE TIME MEDDLER

    Last I heard he's doing well. And he doesn't fit in with the other kittens either, so he'd be easy to pick out. <p> On a related note, last monday, the ex noticed a cat on the back deck nursing two kittens. When we went out to investigate, we figured that must have been the mom for the third.

    I wrote a thesis in college connecting the shared communal experience of watching a movie in a theater with others to the characters at the end watching together the Mothership land and First Contact occur, and of how powerful moments like that are when shared with others. <p> Close Encounters is a great film about faith and spirituality.

    And when I was younger, I was like "Holy shit! Its Lance Henriksen! And that's like, the only part he has in this movie??" <p> It was only after many many multiple viewings later that I noticed him in all the earlier scenes too, only most of his dialogue was spoken offscreen during chaotic moments where all the characters are running around trying to figure something out, like where the planes came from or finding a globe to pinpoint the coordinates they've been given. <p> But yeah, that's one of my favorite things about the end of the movie.

    by MacReady452

    my dad is a music fan and had never heard the theme song(its his cup of tea). So he and my mom were over when it started and I said stick around and check out the theme.

    What was the last awe-inspiring shot or moment?

    by D.Vader

    On film? The only one that comes to mine for me, that even comes close, is the charge of the Rohirrim in Return of the King. That first glimpse Theoden has of the terror awaiting him on the Pelennor Fields as Minas Tirith is under siege, to the stirring heartfelt speech he gives culminating in fanatical shouts of "DEATH! DEATH! DEAAAATH!", to the charge itself... That scene always gets to me. And that's the only one I can think of that's happened lately.

    awe inspiring moment

    by MacReady452

    this is a little obscure but it made my jaw drop.<p>In Lost..not this last season but the one before when Hurley and Sayid are at the apartment complex and Sayid flips a dude over the railing and the camera stays on the dude all the way down to impact. I am so used to seeing a cut away or something look fake as hell so that really struck me.<p>I know that is TV but it is one of the last times I was really impressed by something.

    by FlickaPoo

    ...out of a movie by the minimalist and abstract scores that are popular these days. I would think that for most people, a more traditional, melodic, symphonic type score goes a long way in the childlike wonder department.

    Good theory there Flicka

    by D.Vader

    That's why Michael Giacchino is the ONLY guy out of the new crop of film music composers that I like. Everyone else is just so damn forgettable. They tend to blend in with one another. John Debney, Brian Tyler (except for his earlier work on Six String Samurai), many others I'm forgetting because I never hear anything from them that I care about.... <p> Ugh. But the one guy who has been consistently good for me, and I never think about him, is James Newton Howard. My God, his score for The Village is amazingly beautiful.

    by D.Vader

    I think there's hardly any time for such nice, awe-inspiring shots and scenes. As always, I blame the fucking suits and money-men. And less creative filmmakers too. <p> Hell, even last summer's Star Trek didn't have a *great* awe-inspiring shot of the Enterprise. It was good, but not GREAT like it could have been. <p> Now, I've only seen Avatar once and it was back in December... but I remember the Home Tree collapsing as being kind of awe-inspiring. But that was for completely different reasons, and "wonder" certainly didn't factor into it at all. So that's another topic for discussion I believe.

    I really dig how different his jazzy score for Catch Me if You Can is, and I do like the pomp that plays within his theme for The Terminal. <p> I will say his Harry Potter theme is one of the best themes written this past decade. Its obvious and expected *now*, but back when that first teaser trailer arrived and we heard those first strains, which sounded like something from a fanciful carnival calliope perhaps, it sounded wonderful. I still really dig it.

    Potter 3 score is brilliant

    by D.Vader

    Maybe one of the last brilliant scores Williams' wrote (A.I. is another fantastic example of what he's capable of), but I'm pretty sure it came out after Catch Me If You Can and A.I. <p> He came up with SO many themes for Prisoner of Azkaban, and found a great way to work them all together to repeat and play in different scenes with different instruments, the most obvious example being "Double Trouble", which we first hear as a school song sung by the students, but later plays back into the regular score but with medieval sounding instruments or piccolos and flutes, depending on the scene. <p> The "flying" theme for Buckbeak is also pretty wondrous (and speaking of awe-inspiring scenes of wonder, that's a pretty damn good one too), as is the somber "memories" theme that plays when Professor Lupin relays memories of Harry's parents to him. <p> We also get a pretty great playful little scherzo for the scene where the camera follows the bird as it flies around the castle grounds. That's one of my favorite bits. And "Aunt Marge's Waltz" has great buildup and a killer ending. <p> The ominous music for the werewolf and Dementors and Expecto Patronum scenes aren't my favorite on the album, but I do dig the way he works the sound of a metronome or a ticking clock, that pulsing rhythm into the time-traveling sequence. <p> Yeah, Potter 3 score rocks.

  • July 14, 2010, 8:54 a.m. CST

    by white_vader

    Hey guys & gal. What's all this Vades about Red Right Hand being "the song from Scream"? Sacrilege! That's like saying "Unchained Melody is "the song from Ghost" or "Stand by Me" is the song from, er, Stand by Me. Wait, I was going well there for a minute! Um... <p> Anyway yes Nick Cave is the bitch's tits and he doesn't write a bad western movie, either! And if ya gotta attribute that song to something, please say the X-Files instead, a much better fit. <p> Right. i'll stop being a snob now. Scream just gets my goat, everyone and his dog lauding it like it was the first thing to fuse horror and comedy - "In the tradition of Scream" my arse - how about "in the tradition of An American Werewolf in London" eh critic bitches? Or just anything else but Scream. Fah.

    Sorry, missed you last time around. I think you were replying to my question about Laurence Fishburne - sure he was good but I was referring to my review-ish post from the week before where absolutely nobody in the cinema got his Apocalypse Now (his first movie) reference. I was sorta appalled at the plebs and was wondering if it was the same in your showing. <p> And did any of the whingers in the Predators tb eventually work out the title refers to the human characters too?

    SDB & Fuzzy, I think i'm pre-programmed to love RED CLIFF.<p> My fave films as a youngling at the Dojo were 'battle movies'.<p> Films like SPARTACUS, ZULU, 55 DAYS AT PEKING, EL CID, THEY DIED WITH THEIR BOOTS ON, anything with a massive battle in it. My all time fave film as a child was actually THE ALAMO. Yep, that old cheese fest with John Wayne. And no, it doesn't hold up well to this day...

    That Sammael with his three/asymmetrical eyes was pretty groovy. I love a lot of Del Toro's stuff, and recently did pitch work for one of the billion things he's supposed to be producing (he wrote the script too, witch was pretty good), but I think he has real problems ending his movies.

    My fave 'random guy' death scene is in HAWK THE SLAYER.<p> This loudmouth is hassling Crow the Elf for a quick-draw arrow shooting contest, and he loses big time and ends up with Crow's arrow sticking in his chest.<p> He mutters the words "I never even saw it..." and then falls slowly forward. You can almost *see* the split-second moment the actor realises he's about to land on the plastic arrow and has to twist his teetering body to fall on his side. It's fucking hilarious.

    I have copies of 2 different Gladiator sequel scripts

    by D.Vader

    I don't think any of them have a title page attributing the author. One script is about Maximus being sent back to life by the Gods to take out Commodus' nephew who has grown up to be an asshole. <p> In the end, Maximus ends up living forever, destined to continue fighting in wars. We see him in WWII, Vietnam, etc. It ends with him picking up some soap and wiping it over his hands, like he did with dirt before every battle, and then walking into a meeting in the Pentagon. <p> Actually, maybe I just have one Gladiator 2 script bc I can't remember what the other one was about. I think I'm confusing that second script with an early draft of Gladiator where Maximus was named Narcissus and the entire movie was about that opening battle with the Germans.

    by Fuzzyjefe

    and have been for about 3 weeks. Can't seem to pick it back up. It's been good so far, but this shit happens sometimes. <p> The Strain was fantastic (per Amazon, book 2 isn't out until September). <p> Also, Hater and book 2, Dog Blood are pretty damn good. <p> I liked Under the Dome, but will advise that you should get ready for a Stephen King ending. You KNOW what I mean. But the opening is TIGHT. When the Dome 'drops'...vintage 'suck you in' King. <p> Also can't recommend Johannes Cabal: Necromancer enough. Picked up Johannes Cabal: Detective yesterday, and it's great so far. Cabal is a great character. I love books. Books, books, books.

    Stephen King's son. He has 2 novels, Heart-Shaped Box and Horns, and a short-story collection, 20th Century Ghosts. All are worth a look. I REALLY enjoyed Horns. <p> Also, John Dies at the End, by John Woo. Funny. As. Hell. And freaky. Then there's anything by Christoper Moore (funny); and my favorite writer, Joe R Lansdale.

And yeah I acknowledged about the Hellboy one being a cover. The original was what made Chris Carter do that whole "Songs in the key of X" album. I loved Walking after You by the Fooeys - the way they used it in the movie was cool. <p> Was just saying RRH had a life before the moobies in a mock-outraged sorta way.

    My favorite FAVORITE line from John Dies is (dont read if you haven't read the book. Really. Stop now.) when they get the call and the dog is floating around the living room of that house, and it narrates: John stood there with a look that seemed to say 'Hmm, the old floating dog routine, eh? I've got the tools in the truck'. <p> I don't know why that struck me as sooooo funny, but I peed a little. Also a favorite: "Guys, this plan may be just retarded enough to work."

I gotta get back to that - it had the most beautifully crafter wordplay/sentence structure I'd seen in forever... <p> And yeah, really wanna read John dies at the end. Maybe the old man would like that one, too. He read my whole run of Lone Wolf & Cub while I only got as far as reading the first one on the train when going to the Olympics in 2000! Oh well, the kids do like to count them all when they come into my room/office/Dad's toy room (DON'T TOUCCCHHH!)...

    way ahead of you on Gaiman. His name on it, I buy it. Low Key Lyesmith indeed. <p> Tried Jonathan Strange, it didn't grab me. Will give it another go in the future. Is The Ruins what the film is based on? Good movie.

    A big kick for me in the last year...

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    Was when my daughter thought she was unable to use the local Library due to fees and such, she started raiding my bookshelf…She really dug Harlin Ellison and Joe Haldeman’s Forever War, one of my all time Fav books…She read my Piers Anthony and others…The only author left to introduce her to is Spider Robinson…I love the Callahan Saloon tales…<p>Plus, if what I hear about the new Predators movie is true…they totally ripped off Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Hunters of the Red Moon…God, I love that book..

    ...a hell of a book. Same guy who wrote A SIMPLE PLAN. I don't know much about him, but apparently he's very well regarded, and people were surprised that he went slumming by writing a horror story. <P> Slum away, I say.

  • July 14, 2010, 8:27 p.m. CST

    Yeah it is. Good book, too.

    by TedKordLives

    Jonny Strange didn't do it for me, either. THE SOMNAMBULIST by Johnathan Barnes is a cracking good book I read recently. Definitely worth checking out. <P> All right, my stomach is eating itself, so I gotta jet. Later gang.

    about 2 months ago. Loved it. <p> Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is good....Love Dan Simmons; The Terror, Drood, Carrion Comfort, etc....Robert McCammon's last 3 are the shit: Speaks the Nightbird, The Queen of Bedlam, Mr Slaughter. He also wrote my FAVORITE book- Boys Life. Read that one at least once every 1 or 2 years.

    Gaiman hooked me

    by Fuzzyjefe

    with The Sandman. Fan for life. And Stardust is just a gem. Loved Graveyard Book. And if you only read one Christopher Moore book, it should be Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal. Funny without being blasphemy. He treads the fine line well. Then there's his San Fran Vampire trilogy: Bloodsucking Fiends, You Suck!, and Bite Me. But his name means funny. To me.

    by STLost

    This is happening right now with A PRAYER FOR OWEN MEANY. Every night I look forward to reading it before going to bed. I open it up, and read the first line where I stopped, and I'm immediately sucked back into that world. And I realize I have 150+ pages to go. <P> I think I'm liking it better than GARP. I like GARP a lot, but OWEN MEANY is a very good read.

  • July 14, 2010, 8:45 p.m. CST

    I did read Split Infinity...

    by Fuzzyjefe

    way back when. Not too much other Anthony though. It's funny. I love sci-fi and fantasy films, but not really books that fall under those categories. <p> I think it's because there's a LOT of CRAP in those genres, and I got burned. Also, some of 'em get soooo caught up in the details, the story suffers. I'm a character man. I don't really want to have to DECIPHER your tech-speak to enjoy a book.

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    I used to think Ellison was deep, but as I have gotten older, I find he is way over-rated…he has some colorful prose and sometimes interesting conciets, but he is an angry short man and it comes out in most of his tales…Of all I ever read, I was most impressed by “’Repent Harlequin’ said the Tick Tock Man“….Daughter totally digs “Run for the Stars“…

    All the whining about the new Thor pics

    by white_vader

    So what if he's got a fucking eyepatch? If you're judging it on the look, then how those costumes aren't the most faithful Jack Kirby depictions ever is beyond me. Sure the actual film could suck, but really? Are these actual comic fans whining about this stuff? To a lesser degree, same thing with Ang Lee's Hulk look. The second you space eyes more than one eye-length apart it's not going to look "real", but damn of those proportions and square features weren't as true as you could photorealistically get (with a bit a fidelity to Bana) to Kirby. I still maintain that in years to come that as far as effects go it will be objectively looked back on as every bit as much as an achievement as Gollum. Where people get confused is with the characterisations. Which is why they excuse all the shortcuts they took with Gollum (who WAS brilliant, make no mistake), in the second flick at least. <P> On possible Mark Ruffalo for new Hulk, yeah, I could see that. Fucking Feige pulled a low blow with the Norton comments. He really is the new Avi Arad.

    by white_vader

    I think I'll do a you Cheeses and do a bit of a liveblog on Star Wars, but thought it'd be funny to do the audio commentary instead of the film itself. Yes, I'm a nerd disappearing up my own bumhole, but it's something different from the usual Han/Jabba's tail tale we've had on her I think three times now. I wanna hear what George had to say about it all back in 2004! <p> Anyway, even if everyone bails, I'll be upping the count and getting some work done drawing cute widdle kitties. For two separate jobs. WTF?!

    by white_vader

    I've missed the hubbub - so this is AFTER the painted pig or whatever comments? What's the deal? I guess there's a link? <p> I wish people could separate the singer from the song though. Actors and Directors are just as stupid as anyone else, but just because they turn out to be a waste of space does not retroactively affect the quality of their previous work in my opinion, and unless the current project is directly tied to those predilections then it has no bearing on that stuff either. <p> In my view. <p> Apocalypto is one hell of a movie, Mad Mel or not.

    Let's not hype it too much, Cheeses. Probably hopeless I know, but can't wait to see what you thought, ST. <p> One of my fave things though on first seeing Seven at the flicks was all the idiot/bimbos that staggered out, traumatised because they just saw Pitt was in it and thought he was dreamy so of course they'd go.

    by ScaryWaitress

    Read every Xanth book there was. Some of them twice. <P> Read every fantasy epic I could get my hands on, really. Was particularly into the Belgariad by David Eddings... and I will have you know, I read all this stuff BEFORE I read LOTR (although not before the Hobbit... and, fwiw, I read The Hobbit over several times, tried LOTR, and gave up fast because it wan't fun enough. Hey, I was 14, sue me.) <P> Other guilty but severe pleasure: the MythAdventures series by Robert Lynn Asprin. LOVE me some lame-ass fantasy humor. <P> Just to keep it real: my favorite book of all time remains Watership Down, Ursula LeGuin is a goddess, and Mark Helprin is a saint. AND, American Gods was the best novel I have read in a decade, and you do not get cooler than Sandman. Also, loved the original Dune (novel.) So I'm not a TOTAL rube... but I do love me some lowbrow shit, yo. And I ain't sorry. <P> Just finished Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Not in love, it was OK. Felt it was manipulative. That's all I'll say at the moment.

    Also, ***HYPOTHALAMUS CINEMA***

    by ScaryWaitress

    SURROGATES, starring Bruce Willis, 2009. <P> This sci-fi thriller had a lot of things going for it: casting was well done, score was reminiscent of Batman or The Matrix, lending the necessary pathos, but the cinematography was so pedestrian it had me asking for- no, BEGGING for- the people from Heroes to show up and make it right. Jesus Christ. <P> Anyway, a film questioning the way modern humans unplug, the whole state of our semi-personal interactions... combine that with a widespread terror of looking larger than a size 4 dress, or having a less-than-full head of hair, and you have the world portrayed in Surrogates. The concept- a world where robots act as our avatars, while we sit in comfy chairs, our musles atrophying- is a simplistic argument against the impersonal nature of our hyper-computerized social interactions, and it pulls the heartstrings with an obvious- and tired- meme of personal tragedy which the hero must overcome. <P> In short: eh visuals, simplistic story, remedial character development, and Ving Rhames with a humungous head of dreds. But, some fun action scenes. No boobies AT ALL. <P> ★★☆☆☆⅓

  • July 14, 2010, 10:59 p.m. CST

    library movie review: SEVEN

    by STLost

    grisly, dark thriller. Kinda weird/outrageous at the end. I like how they omit a certain someone's name from the beginning credits so you don't know who plays the killer. Nice touch there. Otherwise, eh. <P> 3/5

  • July 15, 2010, 12:13 a.m. CST

    Wow, StLman...

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    I would give it 4.5 of 5...<p>Sorry, it didn't impress you the way it did me...<p>Still, it was enjoyable, in a dark sort of way, right?

  • July 15, 2010, 12:16 a.m. CST

    yeah, Cheeses..

    by STLost

    well, it doesn't help that I'm not to fond of horror or thriller/murder/serial killer type movies. I just never got into them. The only one I can tolerate is THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. <P> I think the acting was great, the atmosphere was on target, and fincher has never let me down directing. I just wasn't feeling it.

  • July 15, 2010, 12:17 a.m. CST

    though I thought the killer

    by STLost

    SPOILER SPOILER, getting out of the cab and walking in, then turning himself in was freaky as hell, and it turning out to be ENIKV PCYASE of all people just made it even better. He plays serial killer very well.

And seeing as there may be a few in here that intend, like ST to watch it to be able to vote, ya might wanna take it easy with what's in the box when the rest of the Peebs are around.

    John Williams only composed the scores for Harry Potter 1, 2, and 3. 4 was by Patrick Doyle and includes some wonderful pieces (the best being "Harry in Winter"- I highly advise you check it out). <p> Harry Potter 2 was actually, I think, kind of composed and conducted by someone else. I think Williams was extremely busy that year and wrote some new themes for Fawkes the Phoenix and Professor Lockheart, but I feel like it was someone else who put it all together.

    JP I think Thor could be good if it is way over the top.<p>There is nothing "real" about it with the exception of "our world". I would kind of like to see Thor improve where Hancock failed. He is an arrogant asshole who battles gods or aliens in our realm with total disregard for our communities. He flies straight through buildings fucking shit up "saving us".<p>There has to be a bit of humor(obviously)or it won't work.<p>It CAN be done right. We will see.

    I just watched how "Predator Should Have Ended"

    by D.Vader

    Hi-larious. Weapons on the choppa. <p> I saw how LOST should have ended a few weeks ago. That one was pretty good. Best I saw so far was how Star Trek should have ended, as it very aptly demonstrated how after jettisoning the WARP CORE into the black hole, there's no way the Enterprise should have been able to warp away from it after the ensuing explosion.

    by MacReady452

    I dont read much genre fiction but one of my favorite books is The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester. Its the only book I have ever read twice. It is essentially The Count of Monte Cristo in outer space.<p>Teleportation, Space ships, sledgehammers, betrayal and revenge. It is a quick read and fun as hell.<p>Checked IMDB and it looks like they are making the film to be released in 2012. If we are around that long. I hope.

  • July 15, 2010, 7:46 a.m. CST

    Its a bizarrely written book, Mac

    by D.Vader

    Hell, just flipping through the pages will cause you to LOSE YOUR FUCKING MIND. <p> As the book progresses, pages are written upside down, texts swirling around in spiral patterns, blocks within blocks of storytelling. Sometimes one sentence or even one word on a page to draw out the tension. <p> Its so fucking bugnuts insane. I can't even remember the exact premise. I think what happened is someone found these texts in a footlocker/chest in an old house, and they ended up being diary notes or journal entries or some researchers who went into a house where a family disappeared. <p> As it goes, this family bought a house, and one day not too long after they moved in, they noticed a door that wasn't there before. When they opened it, it was nothing but pitch blackness. They'd start walking through it, and as they walked, they realized it was improbably long. As an experiment, the dad takes his video camera, shows the door in front of him, climbs out of a window to his right and walks behind the house to show that whatever is behind the door should only extend about 5-10 feet or so. He continues to walk around the house and climbs back in through the window on the opposite wall. <p> When they actually walk all the way through the black hallway behind the door, it takes 5 minutes. Its known as the 5 minute hallway. <p> Eventually, new rooms start appearing, the family starts forgetting what should be there and what shouldn't. Its like the house is growing on the inside, but not outwardly. Sometimes there are loud, strange growls as if there is something inside. And soon the kids go missing. People are getting lost inside their own house. <p> I think a team of researchers go in and get lost themselves. Its fucking creepy. <p> And I've never read it. Only flipped through the pages at a party, but I found myself unable to stop.

Had a song titled '5 minute hallway'. <p> And MacReady...if a title sounds interesting, just ask & I'd be more than happy to give a quick little synopsis (of course, Amazon does that too, prolly better than I could). <p> Jolly good day all.

    WHO TARD'D

    by Six Demon Bag

    THE TIME MEDDLER<P>FIRST DOCTOR. 1965. SEASON 2. SERIAL 17.<P>the doctor and vicki keep on trucking since ian and barbara went back home. but not for long, since they hear a strnage noise coming from the closet in the TARDIS. steven, the imprisoned astronaut from the mechanoids planet (from last serial, remember?) stumbles out and collapses.<P>the TARDIS quickly lands and the two travellers help the man regain his senses. vicki is thrilled that she has a new companion. i guess the doc aint her thang. vicki explains to hunky steven that they are travelling through time and space, which he really doesnt believe. attempting to prove the truth, the three take a walk outside. finding a viking helmet, the doctor figures out the time. the doctor goes to a nearby village while steven and vicki get some alone time on the cliffs.<P>in the village, the doctor meets the leaders wife and then takes off to the monastery, where chanting can be heard, but at a weird speed...very slowly...hmm<P>the doctor enters the monks place and sees a big problem..theres a record player playing the tunes. he is immediately trapped in a cell by the monk who laughs maniacally.<P>steven and vicki go looking for the doctor when he doesnt return..they head to the village and are quickly ambushed by the townspeople who think they are viking scouts. only the leaders wife believe their story and tell them where the doc is. they head there and get stonewalled by the monk. still thinking that the doctor is being held captive, they decide to break in and rescue him when the monk is away.<P>the monk heads to the cliffs and surveys the coast to see a viking ship unloading their crew. meanwhile, steven and vicki sneak in to the monstery and find it deserted, but they do see the record player and a secret passage. they assume that the doc went thataway! the passage leads outside and they head back to the TARDIS, hoping the doctor went there. but he actually went back to the freaking village and questions the leaders wife and she tells them his friends went to the monastery..so (sigh) he goes back there.<P>steven and vicki, back at the cliffs, fing the TARDIS gone and begin freaking out. they are screwed! they head back down to the monastery after seeing a missile launcher aimed at the viking ship.hmm<P>the doctor meanwhile captures the monk and begins to question his plans, but they are soon attacked by vikings. the monk slips away and the docotor is taken prisoner by the vikings.<P>steven and vicki, at the monastery for the nth time, find the doctor there who has once again captured the monk. there they find a TARDIS like ship and find evidence of the monk messing around with history for his own benefit. the monk explains that he was trying to stop the vikings by blowing up their ship which would in time strengthen the english forces, who wouldve been weakened in the blitz. this was all for the greater good, and a little profit on the side didnt hurt, the monk muses.<P>the vikings attack and the monk joins sides with them in order to escape. while the villagers attack the vikings, the monk hides. the doctor and friends are able to flee, but not before destroying the monks TARDIS. they run to their TARDIS to get the hell out of there...<P>this serial wasnt all that bad..but i couldve done without the group going in circles. i guess that how the producers saved money by having them go back and forth and back and forth. its not as bad as it sounded though. i must admit that im starting to like the doctor..hes been growing on me and his crankiness and stubborness is pretty amusing. and who doesnt like vikings?<P>NEXT: GALAXY 4

    SILENCE OF THE LAMBS...

    by STLost

    i felt was freaky because it felt to me more realistic than the killer in SEVEN. SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER When he planned all of this in advance (even the one guy who he was torturing 1 year prior) and then talking in the back of the car about how Mills will be really close to the finale, I figured he did something to the wife. I thought the box would have the fetus, but the decapitated head makes sense, from some of the book illustrations. But I thought it was too over the top. END SPOILER END SPOILER END SPOILER END SPOILER END SPOILER

    SE7EN isnt as inprobable as you might think..i can see him being able to figure the time tables and stuff. granted when he did SLOTH, yeah he had to have a little more time to plan that one, but then when he got closer to the end..he knew some cops would be getting near and then he would zero in on them. he really didnt need the cops for his plan to work <P>SPOILER SPOILER he couldve just broke into a house and killed a housewife and wait for the husband to come home and wait for the husband to exact revenge..<P>but then it wouldnt be as tragic.

    should be the default Bamfph location for the Pedalback. Just a suggestion. I know I'm not around much these days. I know you guys like the Scorekeeper, whose cool too.

  • July 15, 2010, 1:03 p.m. CST

    ...and, SILENCE was based on a bunch of real...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...serial killer stuff.<P> SE7EN, like most of Fincher's movies, feels a little like a parable taking place in a closed world. You aren't worried that what happens on screen could happen to someone you love.

  • July 15, 2010, 1:05 p.m. CST

    ...I like Pic Of The Day too. Between Scorekeeper...

    ...if you drive out of the city you're in the desert.<P> I'm with you, ST...I generally avoid serial killer stuff.<P> LAMBS and SE7EN are exceptions, but you still won't find me watching even those two very often.

    yeah it is convenient the way it plays out..

    by Six Demon Bag

    but ive seen ruses that relied on more contrivances than SE7EN so i give it a pass. <P>and i adore fincher.

    Fincher did a good job in 7

    by Stabby

    of putting the audience in the head of Brad Pitt's character and making you feel the WTF factor that he felt. Plus, Gwyneth was so sweet in that role and the touching Father/daughter relationship between Freeman/Gwyneth made it all the more F'd up. But, I agree that Spacey's understanding of Pitt was almost psychic proportions and pretty contrived overall. That said it was very successful in manipulating you emotionally to experience that WTF moment which is rarely as successful in movies.
