My Favorite Lesser-Known Space Opera Films

For every Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy and Avatar, there's a space opera flick that didn't receive a fraction of the attention of those films. Some of these are inspired by those films, other are blatants knock-offs. Some of these are good, some bad, some inbetween - but all are entertaining!     My criteria: - I'm not counting anything like Dune or John Carter (both films that I like) that in spite of being flops are such notorious flops that they're still pretty well known

Every film I have ever seen in theatres

I was making this list for another site since I want to keep track from now on, and as I've done before I thought I might as well post it here too  This list is constructed just from memory really, so there may be a couple of mistakes, and they are ordered by U.S./Canadian release dates rather than the order that I saw them (which would be pretty much impossible to recall).   1996 (birth year):   n/a   1997:   n/a   1998:   Antz

Breathless' 2017 viewing log

I'll be adding to this every time I see a film that is a first time viewing for me, and I'll likely add a few words too. I didn't think of posting this on here til now so I'll backdate it with the ones I've already seen this year:   Hobo with a Shotgun (2010) - 6/10. Obviously done with the intention of being tongue-in-cheek, but often a bit overindulgent and not really as funny as it's meant to be.   Jason Bourne (2016) - 6/10. A little boring, but this series has never real

Anticipated films of 2017

The main ones I'm looking forward to...     On the whole, X-Men is definitely my favorite superhero series, and I've especially loved Hugh Jackman's portrayal of Wolverine ever since the first movie came out 17 years ago. This film also appears to be doing something fairly different from your typical superhero film, which I appreciate.      I love kaiju flicks and this looks to be quite a bit of fun. Also looking forward to seeing John Goodman in a shady 1

Adventures in Comic-Con '22

Got some toys, mostly Star Wars  How much did I spend on them? We don't have to talk about that....  @Simón. @Tomás @Kirjava @LittleDudeNT5 @max @Mr. Mendes     @Snow you would be proud of me - the guy that sold me Tarkin and Kit Fisto also had an Atari Jaguar and Neo Geo console, for $550 and $700 respectively, which I did not buy!....today....all right, so I took the guy's business card....   I also got some signatures, from Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead), Garrett Wang (S

80 Bashed Movies That I Dig

The films that I picked for this list all either have less than an average rating of 6.0 on IMDb or less than 50% on Rotten Tomatoes, and in many cases, both. Personally though, I'd rate all of them at least a solid 7 and many of them even higher for various reasons. I'm not gonna game anything like slasher series (unless it's a reviled entry I happen to like), Transformers or Batman v Superman which are all fairly popular really despite being disliked by critics and would have a significant amo

15 Random Things That I Hate

Socks with toes on them The scene in Star Wars when the two Imperial officers decide not to blow up the escape pod because "they do not detect any life forms aboard" - First of all, they're not even looking for lifeforms, they're looking for the Death Star plans. - Droids are extremely common in the galaxy anyway so the "not a life form" thing shouldn't matter. - It's not like they're out of ammo anyway, just shoot the fucking thing. George Lucas' cracks started to show in St

15 Random Things I Love

Trick or treaters   Super Mario Bros. 3   When I write down some random idea I had in the middle of the night only to look at it in the morning and realize it makes no fucking sense   Cats, especially my own     Potatoes, in all their forms   The trailer for the movie Tiptoes. I think all it's missing is a comedy record scratch, like so: - "He always told her he came from a small family, but this... *WHIRRRP!" ...is NOT what she e

"Cool" character names in movies

Most of these range from improbable to ridiculous... I could probably fill this list with Sly alone!   Sylvester Stallone  - Jerry Savage (Rebel) - Johnny Kovak (F.I.S.T) - Deke DaSilva (Nighthawks) - Robert Hatch (Victory) - Lincoln Hawk (Over the Top) - Raymond Tango (Tango & Cash) - John Spartan (Demolition Man) - Ray Quick (The Specialist) - Robert Rath (Assassins)   Seagal has some doozies as well...   Steven Sea
