Jim Jarmusch didn't have to look far for zombies. "I see a lot of soulless ghouls on the streets at night walking along staring into their phone and they don't even know they're in the world anymore," says the director. "Sometimes I just want to shove them out of the way like, 'Wake up! Get off your screen!'" Since Jarmusch's "The Dead Don't Die" (June 14), a zombie comedy starring Bill Murray, Adam Driver and Tilda Swinton, was first announced, excitement has steadily grown for what one of cinema's most deadpan auteurs — himself a devoted creature of the night — might be up to with horror's slobbering standbys. For Jarmusch, telling a story about today inevitably led him to stumbling, inarticulate ghouls, and to George Romero. "In the past, zombies were like Haitian voodoo entities that you could control and have them do your bidding. But in George Romero, zombies are uncontrollable and a problem," Jarmusch said in a recent interview. "They're not monsters attacking … [Read more...] about Summer Movie Preview: Horror Takes a Holiday
Aliens attack earth movies
By Nabiya Imran Published: March 13, 2019 0 SHARES Share Tweet Email Marvel has the biggest fan base, with fans all across the world obsessed with its superhero franchise, making it an overhyped pop-culture phenomenon. PHOTO: IMDB One major pop culture phenomenon taking over the world today is the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Based on comic books created by Stan Lee in 1961, the MCU has come out with several movies, TV shows, short films and digital series since 2008, with its films alone generating revenue of over $17 billion worldwide. I have been an absolute fan of both the comics and the movies for almost seven years now, primarily because the MCU combines action, drama, science fiction, romance, friendship, history, diversity, extra-terrestrial life forms and politics in a single platform. That being said, I am also a student of International Relations, and one of the fundamentals the discipline teaches us is that power in global politics – the ability … [Read more...] about Is Marvel another tool for the US to project its power?
Friday, December 21, 2018 by: Mike Adams Tags: Collapse, cosmic, depopulation, destruction, Earth, genocide, humans, pollution, self-destruction, suicide cult, weird science (Natural News) Taken one at a time, the events unfolding across our world seem unconnected, insane or random. However, there is an overarching pattern to everything you’re witnessing and experiencing. That pattern exists because there is intention to deploy world events, cultural trends, economic control and political obedience to achieve a desired aim. If I tell you that aim right up front, you will discard it as unbelievable. The only way to come to understand the purpose of this pattern is to arrive at the inescapable conclusion step by step. I can help you walk the path of discovery, but I cannot flip that switch in your own mind that transforms you from a “sheeple” into an aware, conscious being with a cosmic picture of what’s really happening to the human race and our planet. If … [Read more...] about CONVERGENCE: The inescapable explanation that connects all world events unfolding now… can you handle the cosmic truth?
Tone and I recently went to see Avatar. I've been reading up on the movie for months and was really looking forward to seeing it. I mostly liked it, though did think it was a bit clichÃ©d and predictable. But I'm not here to talk about storylines and plot devices... you want to know about the creatures. A lot of thought and time obviously went into the design of Pandora's ecosystem and creatures. In part, I'd say that this was a success: a lot of people (even many not that interested in the natural world) have been very much taken in by the movie's xenobiology - if only this inspired them to become interested in, and passionate about, the biology and ecology of the real world. Without further ado, here are my assorted musings on Pandora's creatures. Would be interested in your take on them too! WARNING: major spoilers ahead. Turn back now if you haven't seen the movie. This is your last warning. Without doubt, the coolest creatures in the movie are the flying beasts: the … [Read more...] about The Tet Zoo guide to the creatures of Avatar
"And in the endPaul McCartney Every once in a while, I throw the chance out there (on facebook, twitter, or google+) to ask me whatever questions you want. Yesterday, for some insane reason, I invited people across all three platforms to ask me whatever they liked, with a dual promise that I'd not only answer them, but that the best ones would receive a free "The Year In Space" calendar for 2013, courtesy of the Planetary Society. Image credit: The Planetary Society. So I got a ton of questions, and now I'll do my best to answer them as quickly but as comprehensively as possible. Let's begin... 1.) Since you talked about Helium : What is the value of nitrogen in air for the body? You might think "not much" at first; the nitrogen transferred into our blood through our lungs doesn't play much of a biological role, whereas we need oxygen for some of our most vital biological functions. But that doesn't mean we'd be happier if our atmosphere were 100% oxygen; quite to the … [Read more...] about Answering ALL Your Questions
