Slightly-dated sci-fi should never be immediately equated to bad sci-fi or to cinematic cheese. Some of the stuff that came out of the 50s, 60s and 70s may not be all shiny and hi-tech, but some of the story-telling is much better than a lot of the cookie-cutter stuff coming out of Hollywood today. » 7/16/14 6:04am 7/16/14 6:04am

Disney and Star Wars... While not comic-book based, what they have put planned for future 'Episodes' supported by stand-alones would also constitute a mega-franchise attempt, would it not?

So you're saying that The Asylum... the studio whose sole business practice is cheap knock-offs of legitimate cinema... is now having its own work knocked off??? Wow! I wonder how they feel about their own properties now being endangered by films of an even lower standard? » 10/09/13 2:49pm 10/09/13 2:49pm
