A low-budget but awesome fan-made short film of the animated series, "Static Shock."
In fact, there are two good movies out this weekend. The other one, "The Woman in Black," is not sci-fi, but is a fun ghost story, and Daniel Radcliffe does a fantastic job. While I think most will have more fun with "Chronicle," both movies are definitely worth seeing. You may have a hard decision ahead of you this weekend. Which movie will you see?
The Amazing Spider-Man actually turned out much better than I thought it was going to be. If it hadn't been for that terribly long, drawn out ending, it probably would have gotten a higher rating. The way the quality of the writing changed so frequently throughout the film was weird though. It's like they had two teams of writers. One that was interested in developing characters and telling a good story, and one that had to be told the paper was for writing on, not eating.
Still, it is fairly enjoyable, though completely unnecessary and forgettable.
Will you see The Amazing Spider-Man? If you do, be sure to tell us what you think.
In early 2011, Syfy had a choice between two different shows about people with superpowers. As we all know, they ended up choosing "Alphas," but they still aired the pilot for the other one. The pilot episode of "Three Inches" premiered last Thursday night with no advertising or announcement. There won't be any more, but this is an interesting glimpse at what could have been. Would you want to see this developed into a full series? Do you think it would have been better than "Alphas?"
