GSB Film Review: POLTERGEIST (2015)

poltergeist_2015

  Why would you try and remake Poltergeist?  I mean, why would you try to remake any Spielberg film?  Just name one film that he has done that would make you say “Yeah, they should remake that one cause Spielberg didn’t quite get it right.”  Yet they went ahead and did it anyway.  The 2015 …

2012-2013 TV Recap: We are entering a new age of geekdom, Jim

Trailer Jive: THE CONJURING

Probably the SCARIEST trailer I’ve seen in a while!  A long while.  Bravo to the makers, it sucked me right in like it was a real movie.  Judge for yourselves.     From the official website: Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on a true story, “The Conjuring” tells the horrifying tale of …

GSB Flashback: THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN (1971)

  Biological and viral scientists are called in because a man-made satellite crashed in the desert.  Why call viral specialists into a crash site?  Because everybody in the town near by died and were turned into crystals, like grains of salt.  And it’s all from a teenie-weenie space virus! Well, not everybody died.  There was …

Trailer Jive: DARK SKIES (2013)

 I always knew there was something up with Felicity!  Now the cat is out of the bag, she’s an alien!  Well, maybe not an actual alien, but it seems aliens are trying to make a serious connection to Keri Russell in her 2013 film – DARK SKIES.  Imagine if Spielberg mixed POLTERGEIST with CLOSE ENCOUNTERS …

Trailer Jive: NOW YOU SEE ME (2013)

Jesse Eisenberg is up to no good again.  Instead of magically creating billion dollar social networks, he’s just magically stealing a cool billion outright.  At least that’s what it looks like in this trailer of NOW YOU SEE ME.  The wise Morgan Freeman seems to know all about Eisenberg’s tricks, even if he does have …

The GSB Film Review – JAMES BOND 007: SKYFALL

I have a hole in my recent Bond film history.  I didn’t watch QUANTUM OF SOLACE yet.  Not all of it at least.  But even with that momentary dip in my love of Bond, I can see why so many people are saying that SKYFALL is the best Daniel Craig Bond film so far, some …

Scream-A-Day No.15 – PERFECT BLUE (1997)

This is more of a thriller than actual horror.  It doesn’t have a monster, but a monstrous plot.  If PSYCHO is considered fair game for an October celebration of horror, then this film fits right up there with it.  Plus, it’s a special choice for this Scream-A-Day because it’s actually an anime – PERFECT BLUE. …
