9 "Gravity" Inspired Deaths

Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity" will hit theaters this weekend and it's sure to cause mass hysteria for all those astrophobics out there. Not only is it going to scare, thrill and surely endear even more people to Sandra Bullock's life plights, but the movie has been garnering such early critical adulation that place it square in the catbird seat for Oscar contention. For a thriller with such a simple premise it's quite an interesting level of hype; though Alfonso Cuarón has always been a fascinating and accomplished director so all merit may be deserved.

Dark Skies (REVIEW)

Keri Russell

What "Paranormal Activity" has done for haunted houses is what "Dark Skies" could do for close encounters of the alien kind. At least that's the hope of filmmaker Scott Stewart and producer Jason Blum, the latter of whom produced "Activity" as well as "Insidious".

Wild Speculation: Who are Ridley Scott's Space Jockeys?

iO9 has a great article about Ridley Scott and his "Space Jockeys" (pictured above). They made their first mysterious appearance in "Alien" (1979), and are starting to pop up in promotional materials for "Prometheus". So since this is the internet, they decided to dig up every reference that exists to the creatures to try and make sense of how they fit into the universe.

Snapshots: "Prometheus" is just messing with us at this point...

I mean, am I still supposed to pretend this isn't an "Alien" prequel? If I am that's fine, I just want to make sure I'm playing by the rules... (Release date: June 8th, 2012)

The Thing (2011) (REVIEW)

Mary Elizabeth Winstead in "The Thing"

When the trailer first dropped for "The Thing" remake -- ahem, prequel -- the standard remake reaction of, "My God!" instead was replaced with something more like a "Hmmmm..." Though it was clear that director Matthijs van Heijningen relied heavily on Carpenter's film, itself a remake, for inspiration, there appeared to be enough juice left in this concept to support a full fledged predecessor to the 1982 classic. Now, with Heijningen's film opened, it's safe to say that those with initial hesitations should feel at least partially justified.

Conspiracy theories are awesome. There's just something about listening to hillbillies talking about aliens shoving shit up their asses that I find hilarious and will never get tired of hearing. The only thing better than listening to hillbillies rant and rave about aliens, the Men in Black (not the Will Smith kind) and far-reaching government conspiracies is listening to a formerly respectable, former A-lister (maybe that's a stretch) simultaneously nuke his career and do all the above.

Hail to the King, baby! Duke Nukem Forever is here!

So many things can attain legendary status without there ever being proof of its existence: The Lock Ness Monster. Bigfoot. Chupacabra. Sarah Palin's intelligence. And Duke Nukem Forever.

The original Duke Nukem was released in 1991 as a simple side scroller, but it wasn't until the 1996 release, that our smart ass, wise cracking, womanizing anti-hero took the world by storm. The unique weapons, aliens, and, ahem, adult subject matter instantly became a classic, and a sequel, Duke Nukem Forever was promised..... in 1997.

The Dark Lurking (REVIEW)

Confession time: I saw the “DOOM” movie on opening night. Actually, that’s not the whole story. I saw the “DOOM” movie on opening night with a bunch of guys in costume (I swear I wasn’t one of them). There I was, a kid that grew up killing Hell Knights on my computer while listening to “Reign in Blood”, sitting next to a guy dressed up like a Cyber-Demon, an Imp, an Arch-Vile and another confused friend who had no idea that there were going to be costumes (I said I didn’t know about it... I lied). I wasn’t really expecting much from that movie, but I was expecting to at least be entertained.
