    Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Finally Set to Shoot

    This is the little-engine-that-could as far as continuing in spite of.

    “After the original seminal movie, all that came after looked silly to me,” [Writer-Producer Chris] Morgan said. “Robert E. Howard’s mythology and some great philosophy from Nietzsche to Atilla the Hun was layered in the original film. People say, he didn’t speak for the first 20 minutes of the film, but that was calculated in depicting this man who takes control of life with his own hand. This movie picks up Conan where Arnold is now in his life, and we will be able to use the fact that he has aged in this story. I love the property of Conan so much that I wouldn’t touch it unless we came up with something worthy. We think this is a worthy successor to the original film. Think of this as Conan’s Unforgiven.”
    I'd really like an Arnold-as-Conan follow-up to include Mako (clearly impossible) and Tracey Walter (highly unlikely if they disavow Conan the Destroyer). Oh, well.

    Plus, if they get Verhoeven, as some of the comments suggest, it's going to be silly anyway. I think a thing can be both silly and deep, so why fight it?

    Ejecta (2014) Review - Dread Central

    Like Septic Man and Pontypool before it, the work of Tony Burgess demands you put your thinking cap on. On the surface Ejecta is a twisting tale of sci-fi horror involving shadowy figures, terrestrial or otherwise; but Burgess, never one to spoon feed you answers, slides in the subtext in an almost inconspicuous manner, compelling the viewer to truly think about what they just watched. It demands a re-watch, or perhaps several, to fully pick up on the little nuances of the plot and affectations of the characters that help make sense of the film’s true meaning.

    There needs to be more pairings like Foresight and Burgess, the former for their do-it-yourself attitude and devotion to the genre and the latter for his brilliant mind. Give me weird and original over safe and derivative any day.

    I should have known better then being skeptical of this. With Miller and Hardy I never should've doubted. Add in Theron ... ok I am totally in!

    Once again, fate delivers: watching Conan the Destroyer on IFC while I eat my lunch.
