Sony remaking 80s flick Blue Thunder; will trade helicopters for drones

Your first thought of Roy Scheider may be JAWS or SeaQuest DSV, but for me it will always be BLUE THUNDER. The 1983 action movie about a pilot using an enhanced military helicopter to patrol Los Angeles was one of my favorite movies growing up as a kid. The John Badham movie was not the greatest movie made but it had some pretty awesome aerial sequences. Now, the movie is being...

Neill Blomkamp wants to give Ripley a proper ending with his Alien sequel

A week ago we learned that a new ALIEN movie was in development from DISTRICT 9 and EYLSIUM director Neill Blomkamp . The man started putting the ideas for the movie together himself and posted some concept art online. Fox got word and his persistence paid off because the studio set him to the director’s chair. The film will be set within the ALIEN universe and father to the...

Cool Videos: Alien: Isolation brings dread to gaming consoles

There have been a ton of games over the years capitalizing on the ALIEN franchise (and more recently, ALIEN VS PREDATOR), but this is the first game I've seen that really emulates the atmosphere of Ridley Scott's original ALIEN. So much so, that I thought the player was actually on the Nostromo. Check out the trailer here: Here's the synopsis: Alien: Isolation is a...

Sandra Mivelaz, administrator at the H.R. Giger museum in Gruyeres, Switzerland, informed the associated press that artist H.R. Giger died in a hospital on Monday at age 74, due to injuries suffered in a fall.  The artist was famous for mixing man and machine in his work, and had a visual style that was instantly recognizable.  No small feat, considering the field he worked in.  He...

Sega's Alien: Isolation video game is the closest thing to an direct sequel to Ridley Scott's 1979 film

When PROMETHEUS hit theaters last year, many looking for a true follow-up to ALIEN were disappointed with a very different type of sci-fi movie from Ridley Scott . While I really enjoyed PROMETHEUS, I too have been holding out hope for a direct ALIEN sequel that would capture the same horror that the 1979 film engineered. A movie like that may not be coming soon but it appears the new...

The Good, The Bad and the Badass: Sigourney Weaver

Last week, we took a look at the career of a downright icon when it comes to being a badass- Denzel Washington . But, as good as he is, I think he just might be beat in that department by this week’s subject. Sigourney Weaver Chalk Sigourney Weaver up as one of our true modern legends. During the eighties, Weaver did it all. Not only was she one of...
