Retro Review: eXistenZ @ Infinispace.net

The text below the break is part of a DVD review originally published on October 28th, 1999.
Here are some updated thoughts:  Holy crap, I remember nothing about this movie.  Even re-watching the trailer sparked no memories of eXistenZ.  Nothing about the plot, characters, or if I even loved it o…

The text below the break is part of a theatrical review originally published on November 11th, 2000.
Here are some updated thoughts:  2000 was the year of Mars with Mission to Mars and Red Planet, much like 1989 was the “under the water” year in the theaters with The Abyss, DeepStar S…

He Said, She Said: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies @ Infinispace.net

Neal Says
Better late than never, eh Amy?  I remember back in the day we would go to a movie every weekend, sometimes two.  I had every intention of going to see The Battle of the Five Armies when it hit theaters, but found it really difficult to muster up any excitement after the lackluster An…

Poltergeist Reboot Trailer @ Infinispace.net

In an industry glut of reboots, was anyone really clamoring for a remake of 1982’s Poltergeist?  Does the Hollywood of 2015 care?  Be honest!
No.  They care about safe, secure returns on their investment.
Initial glance tells me a Poltergeist reboot is…

He Said, She Said: Supernova @ Infinispace.net

The text below the break is part of a theatrical review originally published on January 15, 2000*.
Here are some updated thoughts:  Supernova was a film so bad at release that even the director and studio knew it.  Yet it was still pushed on unsuspecting consumers.  How bad was it?  The pseud…

He Said, She Said: The Thirteenth Floor @ Infinispace.net

The text below the break is part of a theatrical review originally written on May 28, 1999*.
Here are some updated thoughts:  It’s a bit mind boggling that this movie was nominated for a Saturn Award.  It eventually, and justly, lost to The Matrix.  I have to be completely honest, I&#8217…
