Rating: R Stars: Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Ninja, Yo-Landi Visser, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Brandon Auret Writers: Neill Blomkamp & Terri Tatchell Director: Neill Blomkamp Distributor: Sony/Columbia Release Date: March 6, 2015 Although CHAPPIE is clearly a product of present-day filmmaking – the motion capture is state of the art – it harks back to the kinds of stories that filmmakers were telling in the early ‘80s, like E.T. (minus the alien element), ROBOCOP and TERMINATOR. Director Neill Blomkamp and his co-screenwriter Terri Tatchell have a lot of love for the first sentient, self-aware robot they depict […]Read On »

Stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Michael Biehn, Linda Hamilton, Paul Winfield Writer: James Cameron with Gale Anne Hurd Director: James Cameron Distributor: MGM Suggested Retail Price: $34.98 Like the many home video incarnations and special editions of John Carpenter’s original HALLOWEEN, the various re-releases of James Cameron’s 1984 classic THE TERMINATOR are too numerous to mention. However, now that it’s been finally remastered for high-definition Blu-ray, it’s time to open up the pocketbook and splurge for the film once again, because it’s worth it. TERMINATOR was director James Cameron’s big breakthrough as a filmmaker (even though he helmed PIRANHA II: THE SPAWNING […]Read On »

The Dork Side: What Royal Wedding?

The British Flag

I know that everyone is wetting their knickers over the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, but I couldn’t be more indifferent. The only way I could care less is if you told me that Train is going to be the band at the reception. Does this mean I have to hand over my chick card? My chick card is about to expire anyway. I was going to make an appointment at the Department of Chicks and Broads, but I’m afraid if I go down there they will take it away from me, or make me take the […]Read On »
