Set on the earth of H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds, War of the Worlds: Goliath is an interesting venture in alternate history. It takes the idea of an earth that is invaded by Martians in 1899 and then fast-forwards fifteen years to 1914.
CASSADAGA tells the story of Lily Morel (Kelen Coleman), a post-lingually deaf artist, who participates in a séance in the spiritualist community of Cassadaga. But instead of getting closure with her recently departed sister, Lily contacts the vengeful ghost of a murdered woman. As the ghost becomes increasingly angry and violent, Lily rushes to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding the woman’s death – a task that will bring her face-to-face with a sadistic serial killer who turns his victims into human marionette dolls.
The Bagcast returns to Slice with a review of “Galactic Adventures: 3D Sun/Mars 3D” documentary narrated by everyone’s favorite weather-guru, Al Roker. Commander Bagcast is pretty impressed with this double feature doc Blu-ray DVD. But why not? After all, the films are filled with amazing NASA footage that gives unprecedented perspective for the Earth-anchored audience.
Twilight Zone, promised me tales of another dimension of sight and sound and showed me the morals of society, all while stimulating my brain for aliens, monsters, and the occult. Confused if Twilight Zone was acceptable programming for me or not, I stayed up late may nights, sneaking in as many episodes of Rod Serling’s masterpiece series as I could.
If you are a believer in the supernatural or can suspend your disbelief and immerse yourself in the lore of the ZoZo spirit, it’s a spooky little horror movie with some genuinely creepy moments. This is a film that will make you want to avoid playing with Ouija boards, and may leave you wanting to sleep with the lights on after it’s over.
I can’t count how many low budget, independent horror films I’ve seen which seem to think they are doing something innovative and cutting edge by filling the screen with the most sickening imagery that the director can dream up, while casting aside niceties such as plotting, pacing, and character development.
The Mad Max series is one of the most successful franchise in cinema history. George Miller’s post-apocalyptic vision of the future is among one of the most influential in history and the series put Mel Gibson on the map.
So you’d think that a series with that much going for it would get a better Blu-Ray release.
Earlier this week, The Twilight Zone was named one of the top five best written TV series of all time.
Dipping back into this television classic via the just released The Twilight Zone: The Complete Second Season, it’s easy to see why. Close to sixty years later, Rod Serling’s brainchild is still as compelling, fascinating and entertaining as ever.
The Wachowskis siblings have given movie goers some of the most audacious movies of the past couple of years like The Matrix and Speed Racer. With their latest film (co-directed and co-written by Tom Tykwer) Cloud Atlas, the movie makers may have bitten off more than audiences were willing to chew at the theater. But now that the film is hitting Blu-Ray and DVD, I have a feeling that Cloud Atlas will find a new, passionate audience.
>While Star Trek: The Next Generation was a hit right out of the gate, most fans agree that it’s in the third season when the series really comes into its own. What’s interesting about reviewing this pivotal season (not only for Next Generation but the franchise as a whole) is how few of the behind-the-scenes people felt like the series had turned a corner based on the feedback they were getting.
