Oh look, Mormon TV! Because let’s be honest, that’s what Extinct is. No, it’s not all that overt, but it is co-created by Orson Scott Card, who is a complete religiously bigoted asshole, and produced by BYUtv (Brigham Young University), so yes, the Mormons had a lot to do with this.
But I’m not going to judge it on that basis, I’m going to look at it by its own merits and see if it’s any good. So is it? You’ll have to look below the fold to find out.

I stumbled across this movie quite by accident, someone was talking about it and it sounded interesting. But what I got wasn’t what I was expecting, which is both good and bad. Museum is based on a manga series by Ryosuke Tomoe about a frog-masked serial killer and the race against time to save innocent lives.
So is it a good movie? Well, I guess the only way you’ll know is to look below the fold. See you there.

I usually don’t pay a lot of attention to Hulu, but recently they’ve started coming up with some decent original programming and I might have to see what else they have. This time around, they brought us Future Man, a flat-out spoof of everything pop culture, especially 80s pop culture, created by Seth Rogen. It’s the first show he’s ever done that he hasn’t acted in. But the second I saw the trailer, I knew this was going to be something special and damn it, it was. So let’s hop into the future and see just what makes this such a great show.

This is a straight lift from 1959’s Giant Gila Monster, but even though it’s billed as a remake, there are enough differences that I don’t buy it.
And I’ll be honest, I am a fan of the original low-budget movie. It is one of my favorite Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes and I own the non-MSTied version. Giant Gila Monster is a classic in bad 50s sci-fi with a ton of heart and enough going on to make it enjoyable while you’re laughing at how bad it is.
So while I may be the only one who really enjoyed this, let’s take a look at Gila!
