'Fahrenheit 451' Review

'Fahrenheit 451' is the fourth film in the Blind Spot Series with TheMatinee.Ca. You can see my blind spot movies list in the right hand side bar. Blind spots are films that I've never seen before and are posted on the last Tuesday of the month. The first film on my list was 'Quest for Fire,' the second blind spot was 'Attack of the 50'-Foot Woman,' the third blind spot was 'THX-1138.' This month's blind spot is 'Fahrenheit 451' (1966). Next month's blind spot is 'The Innocents' (1961).

Based on the novel by RAY BRADBURY

New Godzilla Poster, Jurassic Park Reboot, Falling Skies Returns + Cosplay

The new 'Godzilla' poster looks awesome. Almost as awesome as the Japanese trailer for it. Of course the Japanese trailer would be even better than the one I posted a few days ago. This trailer is a little different as it features the incredible Ken Watabe ('Batman' and 'Inception'). This man is so cool.

Johnny Depp Falters, True Blood Returns, + WonderCon Cosplayers Rule

Not much going on this week except for the latest Johnny Depp bomb, 'Transcendence.' 'Transcendence' is Depp's third flop in a row:  'Dark Shadows,' 'The Lone Ranger,' and now 'Transcendence,' which opened domestically at $11.5 million despite its $100 million budget. 'The Tourist' barely survived with a $16.5 million opening. The reviews are pretty dismal. 'Transcendence is coming in at 19% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Game of Thrones
Between the months of April and June, there will be lots of Thrones talk. As the season premiere debuted this past Sunday, this week was particularly plentiful for 'Game of Thrones' spoofs and memorabilia. I typically don't do full reviews of television shows or films anymore, but I will post something I find interesting or humorous. If you want to see a great recap of this week's episode, head over to Sati's. She has a great review of 'Two Swords.'

My Top 10 Favorite Space Marines

The space marine is an archetype of science fiction. The quintessential space marine is tough, stoic, an alpha male (or female), off-world (sometimes on world), and always armed to the teeth. The earliest use of the actual term "space marine" appeared in 'Captain Brink of the Space Marines,' a 1932 'Amazing Stories' comic, which was a science fiction anthology. Steven Spielberg used this same material for his 1980s television series of the same name (available on Netflix).
