It's utterly horrible. If you want period sci-fi comedy, the king is still Galaxy Quest. SS76 is roughly on par with Iron Sky's horrific homemade flaws.

Saw Lucy last night and enjoyed it.  Reggie is right though, it's weird.  And has no basis in actual science.  Some of the scenes reminded me of Natural Born Killers. 

It was really hard getting past the brain percentage bullshit... But I loved ScarJo kicking ass.

It all sort of fell apart once she turned into alien goo, though. I was willing to accept her creating a "new generation computer" by eating Xerox machines, but then we started time travelling, and both she and the group of scientists survive a bazooka blast, and then the answer to life, the universe, and everything is downloaded onto a jump drive...

Haven't seen the Denzel remake...my impression is that it flopped.

And it SHOULD! Because you CANNOT remake The Equalizer! Unless, of course, it stars Sean Pertwee, is a TV show, and Stewart Copeland gets to update the theme song.

Die Hard on a boat? One of Steven Seagal’s somewhat classier, higher-budget movies from the first Bush era? The motion picture which single-handedly set the stage for Under Siege 2: Dark Territory costarring Eric Bogosian? Yes, 1992’s Andrew Davis-directed actioner Under Siege is all of these and more. A one-time staple during the VHS era of home entertainment, the testosterone-drenched film has not inspired a terrific amount of detailed critical attention or fan speculation in the 22 years since its successful release. Or so one might think. One Tumblr user, however, has apparently given the film a great deal of attention, focusing particularly on the many characters who lose their lives over the course of Under Siege’s 103-minute running time.

Since mid-October, And the Man Next To You: The Tragic Backstory of Everyone Killed in Under Siege has been offering its readers mock-serious, paragraph-long epitaphs for each of the film’s fatalities, written in the grim style of a dime novel. “Hollywood says every hitman has a heart of gold,” states one entry. “They kill and kill until they get that one special target.” The author has been working backwards through the film, denoting each kill with a corresponding time code. The Tumblr starts with the final moments of Seagal’s character, Casey Ryback, years after the events of the film. “He’s more scars than skin,” goes his obituary. “The faces of those he’s killed are long gone, too.”

I was re-watching Empire of the Sun this morning. That kid was a little slow on the uptake, wasn't he? It's basically the fucking apocalypse, dude. No matter how molly-coddled you are, I think you'd still go, "Oh my shitting fuck...it's an invasion! I'm totally screwed!" and then start garroting Japanese soldiers in alleyways.

Mark Wahlberg to star and Peter Berg to direct The Six Billion Dollar Man

The Six Billion Dollar Man is still on its bionic track, with Mark Wahlberg set to star in the upcoming reboot and Peter Berg to sit in the director's chair.

Rumors of Wahlberg starring in the film have been swirling for a couple of months now, but now it looks like it’s almost a done deal.

Here’s Deadline’s report about the upcoming flick:

    Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg, the duo behind the critically acclaimed and box office success Lone Survivor, are re-teaming for the feature film version of The Six Billion Dollar Man with various writers circling the project for The Weinstein Co.’s Dimension Films label. (Yes, billion with a ‘b’). Berg will direct and Wahlberg is attached to star in the film about former astronaut Steve Austin who, after a horrific crash of an experimental plane, is saved by doctors when he is fitted with bionic replacements — both legs, his right arm and left eye. With super-human power, he becomes a force to be reckoned with for the government as a secret agent for the Office of Scientific Intelligence.

The story is based on Martin Caidin’s sci-fi book Cyborg. It became a bestseller when it was published back in 1972, and the book inspired the 1970s television series The Six Million Dollar Man, then starring Lee Majors as Steve Austin. The popular TV show had a large fan base and also spawned a spinoff: The Bionic Woman with Lindsay Wagner.

Filming on The Six Billion Dollar Man should begin next year, with Dimension eying a 2016 release.

Wait... I paid $25 to watch this trailer, which was supposed to run in only three theaters ahead of Babysitter's Club IV!

I don't think it's a good thing that this trailer reminds of Jaws 3D. Or maybe that's an amazing Sharknado type thing.
