Twenty-two years ago, the world was introduced to Terry O'Quinn. It wasn't his first acting role, but it was the one that would make him a star. The role? The Stepfather. Playing a serial marrier/killer of widows, who takes the place at the head of each ready-to-wear family until the illusion of perfection is inevitably shattered, at which point he slaughters them all and moves on, O'Quinn stood out in the role as a truly disturbed individual. This year, after two sequels (one without O'Quinn), the movie is being remade with Dylan Walsh in the lead role. While we'll reserve total judgment until after we've seen it, we took a look at both actors' resumés to see how they stack up against each other, stepfather to stepfather.
When we used to watch the Land of the Lost TV show as children, we thought it was the greatest TV show ever made. (Shows what we knew.) Now, with the big-budget movie remake stalking theaters, we're noticing that it bears more than a slight resemblance to what we currently think of as one of the greatest TV shows ever made -- one that's also about time travel and monsters and scientists. That's right, we're talking about Lost. Could the creators of Lost have been inspired by the original 1970s Land of the Lost TV series? Or did a VHS tape of Lost fall down a wormhole and end up inspiring Sid and Marty Krofft back in the 1970s? We compare the movie and the two shows to try and piece together the timeline in our Land of the Lost vs. Lost Gallery!
It's a good day for DVD buying, especially if you like science fiction, vampires, superheroes, television actors and stereotypically gay men. And if you like all of those things, it's the best day ever. ...Of course, if you like all of those things, every day is probably the best day ever for you. Also, your room is probably awesome.
Okay, normally we make fun of Nicolas Cage movies, but his newest one doesn't look half bad. Take his underwhelming Next, add a little Final Destination, some Mothman Prophecies and a smidge of The Day After Tomorrow... Okay, that does sound bad. But the trailer somehow makes it work. What's more, all of these elements (plane crashes, magical numbers that predict future events, whispering strangers in the woods) add up to what feels like a big episode of Lost, and that can't be all bad, can it? The Gallaga brothers may not buy into our Lost comparison, but they have their own take on the trailer in their latest video. Check out the new "Trailers Without Pity" after the jump!
Once a month, the official Watchmen movie website posts a new production diary, showing behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the film, showcasing the magnificent costumes, and the elaborate sets. It was presumed that they would continue until the film's debut, but now that the movie's release date is in question due to the ongoing lawsuit, they may have a few more videos to make if the release date gets pushed back to 2010. Perhaps that's another positive way to look at this situation -- if the movie gets delayed, we get more DVD extras!
