I remember the local video store when I was a kid had a copy of Deepstar Six and the cover terrifying me. Never saw the actual movie but from what I heard it's not as good as what scared kid me imagined it would be like.

Those old boxes were great because being a kid you knew nothing and often werenít allowed to rent from that section anyway. Having digital copies of everything really sanitizes my collection until I reload Plex and all those glorious covers come back and sell me on watching some old poo poo again.

And some day, some day I will watch Ghoulies. Probably the most tempting VHS case ever made.

Indiana Jones love interest Marion was under age when they had a relationship and he left her, something she complains about to him by saying she was young when they meet in her bar. She was 15. Indiana Jones is a pedophile. According to the novelization.

Also itís in Lucas and Spielbergís notes between the coke stains.

Alita was shockingly good and I regret doubting it because of the big eyes even though the big eyes are still weird to me. The film is good enough it surpasses having comically big eyes on a main character to be a great action film with great characters and Alita outright rejecting the replacement daughter trope. It made $404 million worldwide but the budget was around $170 so that's not enough in Hollywood math.

If it were a financial ďsuccessĒ what lesson would they learn from it?

Not the right one I would wager. Still seems like dodgy math from a gambling addictís mind though.

It was actually really very good, but it definitely hit a few bad lows in terms of quality here and there.

The reason it got canceled by BBC America was that absolutely no one in the world was watching it, which was somehow a step down from the first season, which merely no one was watching.

Yeah I liked both seasons and donít get why people criticize it.

Maybe faithful readers thought it diverged? It was fun throughout but idk if I need more of it

The main scenes for Grizzly II: The Predator were completed, but before special effects featuring a huge electromechanical bear could be used, the executive producer, Joseph Proctor, disappeared with all of the funds, with some sources saying that he was jailed during the time of the filming. Filmed footage of a live bear, however, attacking a live rock concert, was shot in Hungary.

yeah it's a pretty common belief that, even if they're not secretly wealthy, most homeless people who are asking people for money are making like, mid-to-high 5 figures a year and have a home and are just lazy which is why you shouldn't give them money, and i'd be willing to bet that 95% of the people who believe that are also big fans of destroying the social safety net. it's definitely a belief you hold to justify your actions.

I was referring to YA franchises that turned into abortive attempts at film series. The early 2000s was full of YA attempting to follow the Harry Potter formula. Alex Rider, one movie. A Series of Unfortunate Events, died after one film, redone on Netflix, don't know how that went. Percy Jackson, two movies then dead. The Golden Compass, toned down to try and appease dumb fundies, died after one film, ended on a cliffhanger, wasted an amazing cast, rebooted very well on the BBC. Divergent, three movies that kept getting worse and worse critical and commercial results before dying.

There are a lot more Ender books than Harry Potter books though? I have no idea what they intended but if it was wildly successful they'd have had a lot of directions to go.

Also, A Series of Unfortunate Events was pretty good as a tv show.

Michael Moorcock wrote a book in the 70s about an African warlord who conquers the US and forces all of the white people into re-education camps. It seemed to me a bit extreme when I first came across it 20 years ago but now? Dude might have been on to something.

See I read Starship Troopers first and was upset the movie didnít have power armor but had Casper van Dien instead. All the other horrible poo poo Verhoeven left out was fine though and turning it into hilarious satire was obviously way better than genocidally racist military robots and fetishistic child abuse played straight.
