The other day I happened to cross the path of a movie I'd never heard of called Pandorum. It's tagline told me that I shouldn't fear the end of the world, I should fear what happens next. And, since I didn't have to deal with it, what happens next is pretty damn cool
"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you."I dare you to not want to see this movie.
I must admit that quite often I am found guitly of the sin of curiosity, so when I happened across a movie titled (interestingly enough) Zombie Strippers! I figured I might as well check it out. Oddly enough, it's more or less what you'd expect.
The basic premise of this movie is that a mysterious transmission blasting through the airwaves is picked up by televisions, cellphones and radios and turns your average, every day people into blood thirsty, psychotic killers. Admittedly, this movie does sound a little ridiculous, but give it time and it will surprisingly redeem itself.
Ever since the back door (heh) pilot aired last year, I found myself, along with many who had fond memories of the original, anxiously awaiting the return of Knight Rider to my weekly television schedule. After getting a few episodes under my belt, all I can say is that when they release season 1 on DVD, I hope the pilot's on a seperate disc so I can take the rest, set them on fire and bury them in my backyard. Then urinate on them.
I know the show's 3 years old and probably dead in all but low rent syndication, but I recently caught the last 2 episodes of Night Stalker, and let me tell you, Carl Kolchak Stuart Townsend most definitely was not.
