Harry Turtledove is renowned for his alternative historical tales. Oftentimes, one small change is all it takes to create an entirely different possible outcome. And, to be fair, I have enjoyed all of his prior stories that I have read. Therefore, I was slightly surprised to find that Alpha and Omega was less about a historical event and more about the present and, to some extent, the future. I was no less entranced, to be sure. In fact, it caused me some serious introspection when I put the book down. Curious? Then keep reading for more about this wonderful book.
Teen comedy, crime drama, intense horror, romance, and an animated kid’s film. I think I just heard Keanu say “Whoa!” The Studios are offering up a veritable potpourri of cinema this weekend. It feels like an oddity to me to see such degree of diversity at the box office, but I know it’s probably not. It’s just been a while and we’re not used to it.
This has been M. Night Shyamalan week at Doom HQ as we prepare for our Flix of Doom review of Devil, along with a discussion of Shyamalan’s body of work. So that’s where my geeky ass is going to be planted at the theater this weekend.
I wanna know what movie YOU are planning to see this weekend?
Entertainment Weekly has released nine new images of movies on their way in exploding 3-D style. These will only really be amusing to you if you have a pair of 3-D glasses you can throw on to check them out, otherwise you may obtain a small headache. Old school glasses don’t seem to work, either… I tried that.
Movies included in the set are: a couple from Monsters vs. Aliens (March 27), Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (July 1), and Up (May 29) as well as Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (September 18), Alpha and Omega (2010), and even a look at the 3-D re-release of 1995’s Toy Story, set for another run October 2.
