Reviewing “Knights of Badassdom” Maybe development hell is also a sign of the apocalypse

Knights of Badassdom

The hubs and I saw the Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con for the movie Knights of Badassdom years ago now. Basically, it’s supposed to be Galaxy Quest for the Live Action Role Play set. We literally could not wait to see this movie. We got home from Comic-Con and eagerly awaited the release.

But the movie was held up in some sort of development hell, and wasn’t released for years. It’s on Netflix now. So, the question is: Was it worth the wait?

Sadly, no.

Parallels from FOX Digital Studios

Fortunately, the many questions raised by the movie seem to be leading us into a new online series, one that I am looking forward to watching.

Reviewing “Chappie” Both the expectations and the disappointments are high

Chappie

Other than Chappie himself, everything else felt incomplete and broken. It’s as if two writers took their stories and mashed them together. I do like how Blomkamp explored the nature and nurture of artificial intelligence by providing a narrative for its evolution. After all, giving life to an AI who then realizes his existence is pretty interesting. Unfortunately, there weren’t enough of those concepts explored.
