Ben Rock talks "Alien Raiders"

For my money, it's best to do as much as possible practically.

- Ben Rock

So what were the origins of "Alien Raiders"?

It was actually an idea of Dan Myrick's. His idea was to set something fantastic and grandiose like an alien invasion film in the most mundane place of all - a supermarket. The title at the time was actually "Supermarket".

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.

Cuba's Career Buried in "The Devil's Tomb"

Were I to stumble upon this movie, "The Devil's Tomb" on the scifi channel on a Saturday afternoon, I'm sure it would be a pretty entertaining time. Hell, even I am not above the pleasures of gratuitous gunfights set to rap/metal. The cast of this movie is absolutely unreal though, especially considering the "shot on video" look of the whole thing. Take a gander:

Cuba Gooding Jr. ... Mack
Ray Winstone ... Blakely
Ron Perlman ... Wesley
Taryn Manning ... Doc
Henry Rollins ... Fulton
Valerie Cruz ... Elissa
Bill Moseley ... Prof. Duncan

Heroes 3.19 - "Shades of Gray"

Last night, I went on Twitter while 'Heroes' was on, because I was bored out of my gord (P.S. my Twitter name is AnchorPete and I need more followers). Anyway, while on Twitter, I found a link to a live discussion taking place on the Ifanboy website, where a dozen or so members were commenting on every thing that went down on 'Heroes'. Reading the discussion, I had to do a double take. They were actually loving 'Heroes'!

What the hell?

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.
