Star Wars: The OT Retrospectives

   These retrospectives, by Oliver Harper, are very informative and a “Must Watch” for any fan of the original trilogy. He delves into pre production, filming, merchandising, games, music, and much more. It’s an extremely entertaining watch, or even re-watch. Oliver is a talented editor, plus he is easy to listen to. If you haven’t heard of these before, you’re welcome. If you have, give them a another view… this is my 3rd or 4th time on each.

The Last Unicorn (1982)

   Today we are enjoying a Rankin|Bass production, The Last Unicorn. This is a movie that I have seen on a few occasions, but apparently I’ve never really paid attention to it. The classic cell animation style is a joy to behold, much of the music is provided by America, and the voice talent is perfect. At times there are a few cringe worthy moments, yet on the whole it’s a wonderful film. You can view it for yourself on Netflix.

Why Indiana Jones 4 was Actually Awesome

   Do you think Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull sucked? Then this may just change your mind like it did mine.

Star Wars: Rogue One Reshoots

   Relax. Reshoots are just a part of big budget business as usual. Everybody is loosing their minds over nothing. How many more Nerd shaking events need to happen before we all just sit back and not over react to every little nothing that happens in geekdom?

   More and more, the internet is putting the FANATIC back into Fandom. Let’s all mellow out and enjoy what ever we get, or make something better.

My Top Nine Films Based on Comic Strips

Honorable Mention: Buck Rogers. The movie was a pilot for the TV series.  

   “My Top Nine”… it seems to be a thing now. Well, it’s only my second top nine list, but is could be a thing. Why not a Top Ten? In both cases I really couldn’t come up with ten picks, for the life of me.

   This one is simple. Comic strips to the big screen. These are some of the best, live action, examples of this genre of film. When I say “best” I mean, of course, my best.

Theory: Thor Ragnarok Planet

    We all remember this…Agent-Simmons-in-Kree-Monolith-Agents-of-SHIELD   Just going to plop this down for everybody to think about, but I think we have already seen the “new” planet where Thor and Hulk are going.

   The Kree Monolith was a gateway to a planet. Which planet? Hmmm… Perhaps Kree? More than likely. We’ve had a few Kree connections in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”. Ragnarok is, traditionally, a tale of the end of the world, in which (Thousand plus year old Spoiler)  Thor dies.

   I am pretty positive that this won’t be a “Planet Hulk”, but it should be a buddy flick, full of fun, laughs and incredible battles. Oh, also, I don’t think that they will actually kill off the Son of Odin but there will probably be a huge change in his world.

Monster Mania: Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)

MV5BMTQ4NjIzODQ0N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDQzNzYzMjE@._V1_SX214_AL_    Today at the Quantum Cave, things are kind of slow. I’ve got a bug and Mrs. QM is taking care of me so Monday’s work day doesn’t suck. It’s October, and around here that means Monster Movie Mayhem! I really on have tie during the weekends to watch movies and enjoy them. On this, the first Saturday of October, we are screening “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein” from 1948. I am an old-school monster movie guy. Universal monsters are the best! Next to them, pre-80’s Godzilla movies are awesome too.

   IMDB sums it up best; “Two hapless freight handlers find themselves encountering Dracula, the Frankenstein Monster and the Wolf Man.”

   This was always a favorite of mine when I was a kid and it still holds up to this day. Talk about a combined universe. All these monsters exist in the SAME World! Epic 🙂

   If you want a fun movie and one of the best Monster Mash-Ups on film, then this is the family friendly flick for you.

Google uses tactics from the ‘The Last Starfighter’

   It seems that Google uses hiring tactics skimmed from the Sci-Fi classic, ‘The Last Starfighter’. I wonder if Centauri is their lead recruiter?

   Google is seldom boring; its hiring strategies can be as refreshing as its product launches. One would assume you get any job through a job board, website with relevant listings or through recruiters, hoping to be asked for a resume, portfolio of some sort and three references. Cut to Google.
