There is a lot to be thankful for in 2009, your father decided to put down the bottle, your brother decided that the sex change operation wasn’t such a great idea, your sister didn’t get to film the documentary about your brothers sex change, and District 9 was released. Great year for sci-fi indeed. Now we have one more movie to add to 2009’s limited sci-fi roster, Pandorum! Two decent movies for 2009! Lets get into dat…

Yeah! SPACESHIP! Continue reading


Where the Wild Things Are movie will, without question, rock your socks.

This isn’t exactly a video game post, but it’s one that is immensely important to me nonetheless, as outrageous as that may seem. Maurice Sendak’s WWTA is my all-time favorite children’s story and I think the best one ever written (Goodnight Moon fanboys can go blow each other). A little boy who is pissed at his mother and journeys off sailing into a world of gregarious monsters is one epic little boy by most standards.

Given the quality of the original creation, it is definitely necessary that the production team and cast be stellar. I’m happy to say that this requisite is being fulfilled, as the film has none other than the visual genius Spike Jonze directing. Add a solid cast – Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood, Little Miss Sunshine), Forest Whitaker, and Catherine O’Hara to name a few – and you have a fantastic adventure ahead of you. To say I’m eager for this release is not doing my childish emotions justice.

The film is currently in production (technically in the post-production phase) and will be released next October (2009).
