You MUST appreciate this.
Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” a la DOGS.
“Who am I?”
“You’re everything. You’re yourself.”
“Maybe, in the end, we can still design ourselves.”
I love this show. It’s a production of BBC America, so there’s a nice variety of UK actors along with some Americans. The delicious quality of this show is probably what led to it’s downfall after just a single season – I’m sure the cost was enormous. Eight episodes of space colonists duking it out. Here’s the IMDB synopsis:
With Earth rapidly becoming uninhabitable, pioneers seek to colonize the harsh terrain of the planet Carpathia. 10 years later, the town of Forthaven faces danger as the planet’s dark secrets are revealed.
And there’s clones.
This show actually got terrible reviews, so what. It seems like I have a taste for poorly-reviewed shows that get cancelled after only a season or two. Hmmm… I wonder why that is? Maybe there’s just no place for sci-fi apocalyptic shows anymore? Well, I’m sure as hell not going to watch The Secret Circle, so I’d better find another cancelled show…
Attack The Block is delicious. There’s no way around it. Glow in the dark aliens vs. sarcastic British punkass kids. It’s delightful in every way imaginable. If you haven’t seen it, and are into that sort of thing, please, for the love of ET, watch it.
The writer/director of Attack The Block, Joe Cornish (The Adventures of Tin-Tin), is up for another round of off-the-wall kick-ass awesomeness. Check out the plot summary for the book he’s adapting for the silver screen, Snow Crash:
The book is set in the near future, when the U.S. exists as a patchwork of corporate-franchise city-states, and private enterprise and the mafia control everything. The plot involves a computer virus that is manifested as a drug called Snow Crash that is transmitted visually from computer screens to unsuspecting users, frying their brains. Hiro Protagonist – that’s the character’s name – a computer hacker/samurai swordsman/pizza delivery driver who investigates and tries to stop the takeover of postmodern civilization.
There is literally no way this can not be fantastic.
Rotten Tomatoes‘ Rotten Idea Of The Week segment always includes a few juicy insights into some future film projects. Sometimes the Rotten Ideas turn out to actually be brilliant – I think I saw Heath Ledger‘s casting in The Dark Knight posted there first, and we all saw how un-Rotten that turned out to be. But sometimes the ideas are truly bad to the bone – like everything about John Cusack as Edgar Allen Poe in The Raven.
This week features a few entertaining possibilities which Rotten Tomatoes is saying sound like terrible ideas:
1) Guy Richie reinventing Treasure Island.
2) Isaac Newton as an action hero.
UM, those both sound like fantastic ideas to me. ISAAC NEWTON as an ACTION HERO? One word for that: Badass. I mean, imagine the tagline possibilities: “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction….”
While Guy Richie is sometimes always hit or miss, I can totally see Long John Silver as a fast-talking gypsy boxing champ played by a one RDJ, if you know what I mean.
I’m calling Rotten Tomatoes’ bluff on this one: these sound effing brilliant.
