    My wife and I watched last night, and I didn't mind it too much. It has kind of a DeepSpace 9 vibe to it, in that Defiance is more or less a waypoint where these different races meet and interact/argue/fight lather rinse repeat. If they are spending a lot of money on this, it must be on the ton of cgi they needed to create a futuristic earth---and it STILL looks cheap. I wonder if that town square will be the extent of the exterior sets for the city itself.
    Perhaps I was a little disappointed, but I had already seen the 14 minutes sneak preview, so I wasn't expecting much. I will give it another shot or two. My wife had no opinion, as she fell asleep about 15 minutes in.

    Fair enough.

    Methinks the budget was for the advertising of the video game ...

    24Framespersecond.net - OBLIVION: Review

    It’s a shame because the premise of the movie, something I can’t say without giving it all away, is actually really good. It’s just badly executed. The movie just becomes a ‘switch your brain off and enjoy’ when it should have made you think and question. For a Friday/Saturday night out it’s ok, but if you’re looking for an enjoyable film I’d personally save my money and wait for Iron Man 3, Man of Steel or Pacific Rim. If it’s high end sci-fi you’re after then Star Trek Into Darkness is just around the corner.
    Unfortunate. The movie is currently at 67% on Rotten Tomatoes. Might get a chance to see it this weekend with my dad.

    Yeah...reading mixed things. Sounds like he was trying for some sort of high social commentary that got mucked up and watered down. It's already a hit overseas, and I think it'll do pretty well despite the lukewarm reviews. I keep getting the feeling that it's not a bad movie, just one that could have been a lot better.

    Pat Robertson calls D&D evil, is apparently still living in the '80s | Blastr

    Hell...D&D is more relevant than Pat Robertson at this point.

    Cillian Murphy Cast in Wally Pfister’s ‘Transcendence’ | /Film

    The new actor in this case is someone with whom Pfister should be very familiar, as they’ve done four films together. Pfister was director of photography on the last three Batman movies, and Inception, each of which featured Cillian Murphy. Now Murphy will play one of three lead male roles in Transcendence, with the other two played by Johnny Depp and Paul Bettany. Rebecca Hall, Kata Mara, and Morgan Freeman are in the film as well.

    Jack Paglen scripted, and we know that the story revolves around a couple of scientists (Depp and Bettany), with Depp playing a guy whose consciousness is housed in a computer after his physical form is killed.
    Pretty nice cast they are giving Nolan's guy to play with first time in the sandbox.

    /Film Interview: ‘Upstream Color’ Creator Shane Carruth, Using Unique Ideas to Tell a Universal Story | /Film

    I will be honest...I DID NOT GET Primer. And this, which has taken, what. 8 years as a follow up, is supposed to be even more obtuse.

    Saw Oblivion last night. I wanted it to be really good. I really did.

    It wasn't.

    Oh sure...visually, it was stunning. Story-line, however, was very unoriginal and for that reason very predictable (think Moon combined with Wall-E combined with The Matrix combined with 2001 with smatterings of Total Recall). There were just so many holes in the plot. Secondary character development was horrid (as in the only need for Morgan Freeman's character in the movie was to give Morgan Freeman a spot in the cast list...his character wasn't developed at all).

    I really really wanted this one to be good. It just wasn't. I sincerely hope you all enjoy it more than we did.

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.
