Summer takes the day off but Brian Brown is on hand to read the news about the prestigious award nomination that our new cartoon partners Darryl Hughes and Monique MacNaughton of G.A.A.K. have been honored with, Robots are in our future and they will be calling the shots; and director Ron Howard has several full plates but still finds the time to take a French suspense film called “Cache,” ramp up the suspense a notch or two and release it with that special award-winning Howard touch.
Do you feel like “The Abandoned” child left behind? Director Nacho Cerda feels your pain and takes that frightening scenario to the Russian mountains and a remote farmhouse where our heroine and new friend learn what it is to really be scared senseless. This is one film you may want to see because it is so beyond your typical haunted house film of the past.
We will also talk about a new IMAX documentary film entitled “Dinosaurs 3D: Giants of Patagonia.” This interesting film, hosted by actor Donald Sutherland and highlighting the work of famed paleontologist Rodolfo Coria, travels back in time and allows the audience to get a newer, clearer look at some of these amazing prehistoric creatures as only IMAX can.
Over on the small screen we take a look at some new Stargate: Atlantis casting shakeups and cast-shifting from SG-1, SGC over to Atlantis and how this will change to the look of the spin-off series for its Season Four.
Interview: Michael and Summer ride the roller coaster that is an interview with Stranger Things creator, Earl Newton. Stranger Things is a 30-minute internet vidcast of original SF stories about ordinary people stumbling into the secret world of demons, aliens, shamans and angels. The stories told on “Stranger Things TV” expose the bizarre and the extraordinary things happening all around us, everyday.
Imagining Earl bringing a Scott Sigler story to life in video format is a bit of a head rush, and you’ll find out why when you hear this interview.
