Oh, from what I’ve read a lot of it definitely seems to rest on the producers. Sure, Fincher can be a depressing fellow but the worst problems with the film seem to have been outside of his control.
I’m one of those people who usually put Aliens up right next to the first, but for very different reasons. It’s basically a retread of the same beats as the first film, but under the guise of a sci fi action movie instead of a sci fi horror and I’m fine with that. That’s mostly because of the strength of Cameron’s…
I desperately hope so.
Steely Dan officially created the ‘80s. Them and David Letterman.
“DBoo and Boo-nioff, sirs, I swear!”
I have to respectfully disagree. While I like Keith’s artwork, to me it simply did NOT work in the Aliens series. The first two volumes are fantastic, especially the 2nd one. After that they’re really hit or miss.
All this great comics pseudo-history almost makes it feel like Mark Evanier had a hand in this, doesn’t it? This looks like a great read, and thanks for the links about Vince Coletta - I had no idea!
True, though so far people have not yet managed to grasp what made Star Trek work on tv. Discovery has high production values, and good actors, but it’s hollow. I’m hopeful about Picard, considering Michael Chabon’s particular sensibilities, he might understand the blend of optimism and camaraderie that Star Trek…
Hmmm... hardcore foot-related activity? Tarantino probably would retire for that.
I groaned audibly at Nick Fury’s tombstone in Winter Soldier. Then remembered that what was a formative movie for me in my teens is now a 25-year-old reference.
I’d pretty Waits as Scotty screaming about dylythium crystals and having enough power.
If you like the novels, you’ll like the stories. many of them are about three pages long, but also a few novellas. I really like these, but I am not sure I always know exactly what is going on. They are not easy.
My opinion, based mostly on the afterward she wrote, is that this is all one long book and although all of it is really great, the narrative that she is the first to win three Hugos in a row is a little artificial because of that.
Never seen that one even with all the SCTV clips I’ve watched here over the years. Some psychedelic random bumpers, commercials, and intros, etc.
Finished the trilogy last night. I have to agree with everyone who told me to do the whole thing in one go. There’s so much from early on that comes into play later. Those last two chapters were a whirlwind.
