The Ultimate Star Trek app for iPad

18 Jul 2011

Here is a great little App for your iPad the Star Trek PADD. It has the look and feel , especially when you are holding the iPad itself of a Star Trek gizmo that was introduced in the Next Generation series. It basically is a database of everything Star Trek from movies to all the TV show including the cartoon series. Also it links to Twitter and Facebook to keep up with Star Trek news in real time (For wireless connections and 3G subscribers) and other news updates. The App itself is priced at 4.99 US and can be located for download at Apples iPadd store . Hehe now all I need is my Vulcan ears and Klingon dictionary and I am good to go for geekdom.

Here is some other info and some screen shots of the PADD.

Transformers : Dark of the Moon Reveiw

15 Jul 2011

Rating: ★★★½☆

So the 3rd Transformers movie is out and it did not dissapoint. It was a great action sci fi flick with all those things you expect from the Transformers franchise. Sadly it has all the little things I also expected from the Transformers series.

The Negatives

Well I guess I will start with the bad stuff of the movie. Like Shia LaBeouf character Sam Witwicky and his lame life story with a woman that none of us in real life that have no money would ever get. In my opinion they should drop that side plot all together or focus much less on the hero saves the girl plot and get on to more meat and potatoes about the autobots. And while I am at it lose the complaining wining of the character all the time. It really was a turn off on what was other wise a good solid movie.

Another negative would be trying to hard to interject ghetto humor into the robots. It just seemed a little off at time like it was forced into the plot an out of place. I have to admit in some parts of the movie it was funny but in other parts it seemed to lose it's appeal and made the scene drag. Another turn off of the plot was for some reason there is always a nitwit in charge of the Autobots as a human commander. This time it was a woman (Frances McDormand as Charlotte Mearing )
that was formally the head of the CIA. Yea I am for the bashing and making fun of the government at times because they sometimes deserve it but hitting that punchline once to often in the series is just tiresome.

The positives:

Hearing Lenord Nemoy once again play the voice of a Transformer. If you did not know this he once played the voice of Galvatron in the 1986 Animated Movie of the Transformers series. This time he played Sentinel Prime  who was Optimus Prime's predecessor who eventually turns against the Autobots for the sake of  saving Cybortron their home planet. A quick game for Nimoy fans. Look for some Star Trek references. I saw two. There may have been more of them that I missed but I am certain of at least 2 of them. One was somewhere in the beginning of the movie where two little Autobots were flicking through channels and came across an old Star Trek episode in which they commented something to the effect and I do not remember the exact words " I remember this one its when Spock loses control" Or "Turns evil" . And the other was his famous line from the Star Trek movies made famous in the Wrath of Khan " The needs of the many out way the needs of the few". This time he referenced the line in justifying his plan to make a slave race out of the humans.

District 10 and Dark Shadow News

01 Mar 2011

 

This is just a news brief of rumors and news tid bits that I have come across. I misspoke  when I said in a previous post that District 10 may be ready for release this year when in fact it has not even reached production. The rumor is that even the title is a working name and could be named anything. I got this little piece of info from District 10 trailer.com , Movie Moron and the one article that give credence to the rumors from the New York Daily News.

Neill Blomkamp, the film's director, says "the studio wants a sequel," in an exclusive interview with the Sci-Fi Movie Page. The 29-year-old South Africa-born filmmaker said it's already being referred to as "District 10."

As for Dark Shadows it looks like again I misspoke or repeated a not that accurate piece of information that I found on a web blog. In fact the shooting will start this April . But unlike District 10 this one may be released in late 2011 according to REELZ CHANNEL

The script for Dark Shadows was written by Seth Grahame-Smith, who took over writing chores from original writer John August. The movie is expected to go into production in April for a planned late-2011 release.

Other Dark Shadow news has Eva Green joining the film as the leading lady and Jackie Earle Haley and Bella Heathcoate in talks to join the production.

Abrams still not signed to do Star Trek 2

12 Jan 2011

In an interview with COLIDER.COM Abrams has stated that he is not going to do anything before he sees the script for the Star Trek sequel among other little facts on Super 8, Lost, and Fringe among the few mentioned.

Do you have a date by which you have to decide whether you’re going to direct Star Trek 2?

ABRAMS: That’s a good question. I probably do. I don’t know. There’s a script that should be coming in, hopefully by the time there’s a trailer for Super 8, and then we’ll know.

What’s the biggest proponent of that decision for you?

ABRAMS: I guess the idea of not wanting to choose to direct a film, for which I’ve not read a script. It’s a tough decision to make without seeing any pages. That’s not to say that I don’t have all the faith in the world in the spectacular writers. Damon Lindelof, Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman are awesome. My hope is that they’ll write the script, it will be great and we can make a fun, exciting sequel to Star Trek.

Blinky Trailer

16 Nov 2010

This obscure trailer is something of a bizarre and creepy teaser that was posted both in Bloody Disgusting and ComicBookMovie.com of a movie that which is made by Ruairi Robinson, who is known for " The Silent City" post-apocalyptic short.  The teaser has a boy playing with a cute sort of R2D2ish looking robot whose eyes keep blinking ( guess that is where they came up with the title name) . Both the test teaser (shown also below) called bad robot and the trailer give you a sense that this is like what many have discribed as a Chucky like toy that most likely malfufunctions or becomes sancient in an evil way. There has been no release date but fromt he looks it will not be to long and I am wagering this will be the surprise hit of the year which will lead to a franchise of sorts. Much like the horror cults of Freddy , jason , and yes Chucky...


And the first concept trailer called Bad Robot.
