battlestar galactica

Horror Headlines: Thursday August 13th, 2009

Looks like there's another "Riddick" movie coming our way in the future... because if it's one thing we all need, it's more Vin Diesel??

The remake of "The Legend of Boggy Creek" has a cast. In other news, "The Legend of Boggy Creek" is being remade? There aren't even words to describe this remake disease anymore.

New "Sorority Row" poster, again, utilizing it's biggest um... "assets". I'm ashamed to say it's sort of working on me.

Brian Singer might be directing a "sequel" to the 70's "Battlestar Galactica" series? Doesn't that seem odd when the Syfy series actually has a fairly big following? Nothing is concrete at this point, but the rumor is that Universal is pursuing Singer to produce and possibly direct the film.

Here's a cool story... Clive Barker to produce television series penned by Marcus Dunston and Patrick Melton, who wrote and directed "The Collector" which just came out recently. The series is about a "haunted hotel". Sounds pretty sweet!

In Real People News: 

Next time someone tells you American television is out of control, you could probably point them in the direction of this Brazilian fellow who was just arrested for having murdering people, for the sole purpose of having gruesome murders to report on his crime show. Pretty sure there's a movie script in there somewhere... have at it writers!

Live in California? Love testicles? Well you're in luck, as Santa Cruz County is about to hold their first ever "testicle festival". At the festival, farmers and ranchers will be serving up all different kinds of animal nuts. Enjoy!

On this day in history: 

1521: After an 80-day siege, Spanish conquistador Hernando Cort├ęs captures Tenochtitlan, capital of the Aztec Empire. When the Spaniards fail to discover Montezuma's treasure, they torture Cuauhtemoc by pouring hot oil over his feet. The emperor responds by asking, "Am I on a bed of roses?" They hang him three years later.

Battlestar 4.21 - "Daybreak: Part One"

I can only count on one hand how many times I had anxiety, while watching a television show, reading a book/comic or watching a film, and I am quite the fantasy media whore. When it came to the end of the "Lord of The Rings" or the "Matrix" Trilogies, I would turn to whoever was watching the final installments with me, and say "I really don't want to see the rest of this." I had grown so attached to the characters, that I would become a nervous wreck, anticipating their possible deaths. 'Battlestar' has reached that point, but in this case, the anxiety might be too much to bear.

Battlestar 4.20 - "Islanded in a Sea of Stars"

This week's episode, "Islanded in a Sea of Stars" was actually hurt by the prior week's coming attractions. The highlight of the episode, which was also the most shocking moment, happened right before the beginning credits rolled. By the time 56 crew members were sucked through a breach in the hull, into the cold vacuum of space, last week's preview made the entire disaster old news. It never fails though, seeing a human or Cylon floating dead in space is quite the disturbing image.
