Man oh man, my poor little geek brain can barely process how awesome this all looks.  This movie can’t come soon enough.

It’s not often that I exit a theater with the sense that I have completely wasted the last two hours of my life, but such was the case with Marcus Nispel’s reboot of Conan the Barbarian.  While I’ll admit to showing up with low expectations, I don’t think anything could have prepared me for how truly, truly terrible this film was. Conan is born amidst a vicious battle between the Cimmerians and… well, the film is never quite clear on that particular detail.  His father, Corin (Ron Pearlman in a completely lifeless performance), cuts Conan from his mother’s belly so…

Sam Worthington brings his inability to hide his accent to another film this fall, starring alongside Jeffrey Dean Morgan in The Texas Killing Fields.  Have a look at the trailer and the synopsis. This tense and haunting thriller follows a local homicide detective (Sam Worthington) in a small Texas town and his partner, a transplanted cop from New York City (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), as they track a sadistic serial killer dumping his victims’ mutilated bodies in a nearby marsh locals call “The Killing Fields”.

Yesterday, my brother and I were laptoppin’ it up side-by-side style on the couch, and out of the corner of my eye I noticed that he was messaging a strange-looking (by what I could tell from the thumbnail image) girl on Facebook. He’s 17 (I’m 24 for reference), and I feel it is my sisterly duty to make sure he doesn’t look like a moron on the Internet. I asked him if he had a new girlfriend, and the exchange went something like this: Brother: Hold on, just let me finish typing this… Me: Sounds intense. Brother: […] Okay. She’s…

At San Diego Comic Con 2011, I sat in on the Underworld: Awakening panel, mostly because I was camped out waiting for the Sony panel so I could get my first glimpse of The Amazing Spider-Man.  The footage they previewed for us looked… well, it looked like an Underworld film.  I’ve never been a fan of the franchise – sure, Kate Beckinsale looks super-hot in skintight latex, but I’ve always eflt the films were all style and no substance.  That certainly seems to be the case with the new trailer – check it out.   Underworld: Awakening opens on January…

Director Ridley Scott is currently working on Prometheus, which loosely ties into his sci-fi classic Alien.  Now it looks like he will also be revisiting another of his early works, as Deadline is reporting that Scott will be working on a new Blade Runner film with Alcon Entertainment, who acquired the rights to the franchise earlier this year.  No word yet on whether this will be a prequel, sequel, or something altogether different. Also unknown is whether or not Harrison Ford will be involved.  With no screenwriter currently attached, we probably won’t know much about this project for awhile, but…
