Shakeycam from SDCC.
At least The Dude is back (and I hear he abides).

I really want to see the non-shakeycam version. But this isn't supposed to come out until what, 2010?

IMDB is saying 2011, but they have almost no details at all... if it's even remotely in production at this point, I can't imagine it's that far off... but jeebus...

Fuck Tron 2.

I want Black Hole 2, dammit.

That'd be awesome if it was just Maximillian standing around in robot hell for 2 hours...

I'd pay good money to see that.

At least 4 times as much as I paid to see the new Batman.

I loved me some new Batman, but don't really need to see it a 2nd time (I'm kinda confused by the folk that ran out to see it like 3x already, I re-watched the first one many-a-time, but this one would be hard I'd think, it wore me out), and I can see the Wacthmen trailer on the internets any time I want.

As to Black Hole, I loved that movie as a kid, but even now as an adult the ending doesn't make a lick of sense--I just assume they all died & it's all a metaphor for their afterlives...

Agreed on Batman. Though I'll watch it again when it comes out on DVD. It'll be nice to watch it without having to tell the guys behind me to shut the fuck up.

I think the ending to Black Hole is simple-- the Black Hole opens to another universe, which also means our perceptions of heaven and hell. Think of Event Horizon as Black Hole's spiritual successor.

Er, no pun intended.

Again, Batman = awesome; but ya, way more intense & emotion-y than the first one which I found a lot more "fun."

As to Black Hole (nice job on the event-horizon/black-hole succession), ya, they sure hinted at that other universe stuff as I recall in some dialog; but let's flashback to me being like 6 & seeing Reinhardt trapped in a robot body in a burning mystery land with drudging worker cyborgs/bots around him... W-T-F, and I was like "did the good guys find a planet or are they just going to drift until they run out of air..." PG my ass... motherfuckers got drilled with robot claws & shit... (& by motherfuckers I mean Anthony Perkins)

Yeah, Black Hole was probably the first film to make me ask a lot of questions. My father responded by having me watch 2001 and Close Encounters.


I don't think I was messed with that hardcore until Secret of NIMH.

2001, the movie I had to watch in about 8 half hour chunks 'cause my attention span (even as an adult) couldn't take it.

Oh man... Secret of Nhym... that f-ed me up worse than Bambi's mom getting shot.

Yeah, I think the fact 2001 was critically hailed is what fucked with me the most. Thank god for 2010.

Bambi's mom... heh. Good times!

I just recently rewatched Black Hole on Netflicks. And if I recall correctly (on the extra's), the ending was a mistake. They wanted to do a more sci-fi ending which would have cost them more than Disney's budget would allow at that point. And the final still fit into the Disney Pro-Bible idioligy of that period. So yeah, poor Maxi got stuck in the robot for G knows how long in a weird Hell like world. Sux's to be him.

And Secret Of Nimh got watched once and will never be seen again. but Watership Down ruined me.

Wow, that actually makes a lot of sense about the ending of Black Hole, I'll buy that!

As to Watership Down, ya, that was like one of my Mom's all-time favorite books, and who doesn't love cute fluffy bunnies?

Fluffy bunnies that get DESTROYED by Man! LOL!

I told Steve they need to go back to the 70's era and remake all the old giant bug & animal movies. "Food For The God's", etc. that would be rad!
