Battlestar Galatica

Tuesday, August 30, 2005 by darco

Many years ago, there was a show on TV called Battlestar Galactica. It was one of the earlier slightly more realistic sci-fi shows on TV, but is quite primitive by today's standards. It was about a branch of the human race in a far off region of the galaxy fighting for their lives against a mechanized enemy called the Cylons. In all honesty, I was never really a fan.

However someone must have been inspired, because last year a complete remake of the series started to air on the Sci-Fi channel.

Very well done. If you haven't seen it, go out and watch it. This movie is leaps-and-bounds better than any of the previous Batman movies, making even the best of them look crude and dull.

And, not that I'm gay or anything, but Christian Bale is one sexy SOB in that movie. If I were into that kind of thing...I'd hit it.

I just wanted to bring to you attention an absolutely beautifully animated TV series—Avatar: The Last Airbender. I stumbled upon this show by accident, and I was blown away. It has been a long time since there has been a Nickelodeon show that I actually enjoyed. It certainly has an "Anime" feel to it.

Monday, May 9, 2005 by darco

Apparently, director Steven Spielberg was so moved at a screening of the upcoming Star Wars movie, he wept openly. Wow. "...it has a tremendous ending and it's very dark. You'll cry at the end, it's wonderful", says Spielberg. :D
