Little known fact, The Thing enjoyed a successful career as a lounge musician after the events in Antarctica.

(Warning: contains disturbing images from the 1982 film "The Thing," and some salty language.)

Monty Python is Making a Sci-Fi Comedy

The surviving members of Monty Python, along with Robin Williams, have a new project in the works: a sci-fi comedy called "Absolutely Anything."

The Pythons will voice a group of aliens who give an earthling the power to do "absolutely anything." Their reason? To see how much trouble he causes. What can I say, aliens are jerks. There is also a talking dog, voiced by Robin Williams. Of course there is. Still, I'll see almost anything with Monty Python attached to it. Even if director Terry Jones says it's not explicitly a "Monty Python" film.

"It's not a Monty Python picture, but it certainly has that sensibility," he said. That's good enough for me.

Trailer: After Earth

After Earth looks kind of cool, but it's directed by M. Knight Shyamalan, so it will likely be massively disappointing. On the plus side, a new Shyamalan movie means it's time to play "Guess the Twist!" What do you think it will be?

My guess is Shyamalan will "borrow" from older, better sci-fi and this will actually be the story of how humans colonized pre-historic Earth, making the title of the movie almost completely meaningless. What a twist!
