Abrams/Nolan Bringing WESTWORLD To HBO

Our fascination with Michael Crichton’s WESTWORLD has been going strong ever since we all watched Yul Brenner saunter on screen way back in 1973. As a kid that scene of them taking the face off the Brenner robot was one that has stuck with me to this day. A new version is heading out way and it’s coming at us from J.J. Abrams, Johnathan Nolan and HBO. This is good news all the way around. … Continue reading

badrobot

Okay, this trailer or teaser shows up with no explanation. It is pimping a Bad Robot film but does not give a project title or hint at any stars or director. It’s just a creepy ass one minute of film that will leave you guessing and wonder what in the hell you have just watched. BAD ROBOT is of course J.J. Abrams production company that has brought us everything from CLOVERFIELD to LOST to SUPER … Continue reading

cloverfield-movie-2008-2

SYNOPSIS: Revolves around a monster attack in New York as told from the point of view of a small group of people. REVIEW: Taking a que from a few other “like” style films, Cloverfield is one of the few to really draw up ALOT of pre-release hype. In fact, its set and details were kept so under wrap that just the fact of not knowing what the Cloverfield monster looked like seemed to be enough … Continue reading

Years later, Abrams created “Lost”, whose star Jorge Garcia, also got his start with Troma’s “Tales From The Crapper.” When Abrams was interviewed for Troma’s “Blood, Boobs and Beast,” a documentary on Dohler’s life and … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS: After witnessing a mysterious train crash, a group of friends in the summer of 1979 begin noticing strange happenings going around in their small town, and begin to investigate into the creepy phenomenon. REVIEW: You know, when The Black Saint attends movie screenings, he usually attends private ones in small 30-40 seat screening rooms. I abhor waiting in line for anything.
