You still live in hope.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Well, the film canisters DO exist! The only real question is if, when you open them, there's usable film inside or toxic sludge. And, apparently, just simply opening them is A Thing.

Haha... So, uh, I kind of liked Pompeii! It's like a poor man's Gladiator written by people who loved Rome who really wanted to try and figure out how to include a car chase.

But that's just 60% of the movie. The final 40 minutes is pure disaster porn: Roman style! It's loads of fun because there's a Titanic-esque subplot playing out during the uber-apocalypse that's just hilarious.

I can't imagine Groundhog Day meets Starship Troopers, I mean, Edge of Tomorrow is any good... and yet I'd totally watch it.

Tom Cruise is still allowed in films...? Wait... he's out of the closet?

Groundhog Day meets that Jake Gyllenhaal repeat simulation movie... meets Starship Troopers meets Xenu the Space Warrior in the volcano.

Also... haha... the same director as Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Haha... hahahahahahahahaha.

He's going through a Bad Sci-Fi Phase, which means yes, he is, because he probably asks to be part of these idiot projects that nobody will touch and the people behind the projects are giggling all the way to the bank.

Haha! Non-Stop is exactly what you think it is -- Liam Neeson does a version of Red Eye that's been put through the Die Hard filter.

And it's great.

Also, don't watch it sober.

Remember the Night Skies chapter from "The Greatest Sci-Fi Movies Never Made." Rick Baker has released pictures of his alien sculpts. Pretty cool, and scary how much they look like ET.

Nice piece. I think it's my favorite movie.
