    I kinda want to see Angels and Demons because of the whole secret of life conspiracy thing, but I suspect I'm going to be bored with every other aspect of the film.

    Add to that I haven't seen the first movie.

    Not seeing the first movie won't matter a bit, and will probably increase your enjoyment. Not only is the Angels & Demons plot completely separate from TDC, Dan Brown's plots are all exactly the same, so if you've seen/read one, you know what will happen for all of them.

    That said, I liked A&D the book better than TDC.

    I've been anticipating Terminator Salvation for a while now, but the fact that it is PG-13 is really scaring me. I just don't think that a Terminator movie set during a future war is going to turn out so well when it isn't R rated. When they turned Die Hard PG it was like watching a movie edited for cable in the theater.

    Terminator probably gets some leniency from the ratings board because it's robots. Aside from swearing, would Terminator 2 be rated R if it came out now?

    I'd say yes. I mean the scene where the nuclear bomb goes off and everyone gets fucked while sarah is holding on to the fence is pretty intense. Plus the whole thing when Arnie skins himself. I do agree with you on the robots though, but some members of the resistance have to die too, and I'd like to see some nice deaths. I still think it looks good, I just think R rated movies have more freedom, especially violence based movies.

    Also, as a huge Star Wars nerd and someone who never had interest in Star Trek, I really cannot wait for the movie. I get the added bonus of watching it without knowing if they're fucking with the source material.

    It's just another month for me of "Dammit, is it June 24th yet? Is it Transformers Day yet?"

    Every day's another fucking reminder that Transformers isn't out yet.

    I'm hoping Terminator slightly quells my thirst for giant robot action.

    Well, ST has some of the best work ILM's done in recent memory along with Iron Man, and has the same writing crew as Trans. You might as well cover 3 of ILM's big summer 4 by watching ST and T4 before Trans2. :D

    When I saw a marathon of Spaced at a cinema downtown, Edgar Wright (the director) was on hand to give commentary (and Jaffa Cakes) to the audience every few episodes. At one point, he mentioned joking with Simon about the "every odd star trek is shit" comment.

    I'm among them. I have no expectations about it being a "good" movie. I do expect shit to blow up and to hopefully see more hot robot on robot ass kicking than the first. The bar is set pretty low, and nostalgia will take me a long way.

    So you don't want to see Raimi making horror movies again?

    The movie's getting pretty positive reviews, most saying that it goes back to his Evil Dead approach of film making. High praise, so we'll see.

    And I can't wait for Brother's Bloom. I thought Brick was one of the best movies when it came out, and I always enjoy a good con movie. If the movie can keep up the spirit of the trailer, it'll be good times.

    Still playing catch-up, but I think I'll have to watch Terminator and Star Trek.

    I had nothing to do at a conference one evening and also went to see Battle for Terra. I thought it was a real wasted oportunity. I mean, they made the decision to say "OK, we're going to have the humans flat out try and genocide these people' but then decided they somehow wanted to dress it up for kids? I mean, I love the idea of the humans being the aggressors but the way it was portrayed (Terrans live in perfect society, Humans are completely evil) meant it was pointless.

    Also, they held in the oxygen with a NET. A net with visible holes in it. And how is a planet with no oxygen the nearest inhabitable world? News for you humans, you need oxygen to breath. Why couldn't they say something like "He's dying! The pollen on your world causes them to choke, we must get him behind something to filter it out!" And spaceships powered by cogs?

    So much of it could have been so much better, and it wouldn't even have needed better animators, although that would have helped too.

    I agree with the wasted opprotunity bit. In the interests of discussion:
    1) Inhabitable planet: Humans know they can terraform the planet they arrive at, and they have non-FTL drives, so it's going to take a long, long time to get there - and if they hadn't targeted this one, they would've died out before reaching anywhere else (though they probably didn't know that at the time).
    2) Air: I honestly expected the ending to be more 'the air that the Terrans breathe is lighter than oxygen', and as a result, we end up with the humans inhabiting the below-the-clouds part.
    3) Cogs. Yeah. I dunno.

    A waste, as you say. I'm just confused as to how it happened - did they decide on making it animated first, or genocide-happy first? Were they forced to make it a happy happy because the execs didn't think an animated-but-for-adults would sell?

    I'd just like to find out what happened where.

    I'm a little worried about how time travel in previous movies will be handled. For instance, one of the latest previews shows Connor saying
    that if they can't stop the t-800s from being made, the first "skinjobs", then the war is over and they've lost. But this Connor should have memories of fighting those as a kid. In the supposedly unchanging timeline of this universe, they've always been created, and they've always gone back, faced Connor, and failed, so he should know it's inevitable that they're created.

    I haven't seen Mystery Train (and truth be told, I wasn't paying the closest attention during Ghost Dog, I know, shame on me).

    I had a hard time getting into it. The main character's conversations...well, interactions with other people were usually kind of good, even better once you were able to sense a pattern in how they behaved and what they were talking about. But a good chunk of the movie is the character not interacting with others. I never quite connected with the landscapes and architecture that was employed, and didn't think the music really helped (except for one spot towards the end). Somewhere around the last 30 minutes it turns practically Lynchian. That movie really did not want you to know what the plot was.

    "Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus"

    (of course it's another from our friends at The Asylum, the studio responsible for basically all the straight-to-scifi horror titles ever.)

    Trailer streaming here.

    That's right. That shark jumped 30,000 feet to eat a 747. It was hungry.

    I like how they were frozen in combat. They were so engaged in killing each other that they allowed a cold snap to slow them down to the point of suspended animation, but yet they still battled.

    Though this raises the question of why mtv.com has a trailer for that. I know they're not about music anymore, but...how does that fit into youth-branded marketing?
