The real horror of the movie is actually the corporation behind it all, but with a creature dripping saliva all over the deck in anticipation of eating you, it's hard to keep that perspective. One of the all-time best science fiction horror movies, and there are things they got right on this one that they never duplicated (or decided to alter) in the sequels.
A great collection of Mythos stories with the unusual quality of being after Cthulhu's return. Very original and consistently high quality from a variety of contributors. Well worth your time if you enjoy Lovecraftian tales already and want something a bit unique.
A brilliant writer who has certain shortcomings and predictabilities in his writing, but he gets credit for so much else. Hugely responsible for the cyberpunk movement in science fiction, influencing a broad range of movies, literature, and games. His writing is extremely detailed, and he has a tremendous sense of pop culture and how technology becomes its own character in a story.
It really helps if you played PnP RPGs before, but anyone can enjoy it. There's some strategy to it, but mostly it's luck and keeping people from ganging up on you near the end. There are also several expansion packs for different genre settings that are worth getting if you plan on playing this a lot. You can also combine all the genre decks without any problems.
One of the funniest movies I know, and John Cusack is the perfect actor for the role. The writing and delivery is amazing, and check out the fight scene with his actual martial arts trainer, Benny "The Jet" Urquidez. Also featuring Dan Akroyd and several other great actors. Thoroughly enjoyable.
The next time your great idea at work elicits silence or eye rolls, you might just pity those co-workers. Fresh research indicates they don't even know what a creative idea looks like and that creativity, hailed as a positive change agent, actually makes people squirm.
Which of the following are legitimate political action committees and which is fake?
A) Citizens for a Working America
B) Make Us Great Again
C) Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow
D) We Love USA
If you guessed C was the fake, you’d be wrong. It was a trick question: these are all legitimate PACs. “Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow” was created by the comedian Stephen Colbert
Dubbed the rock star of the climbing world, Alex Honnold travels the world fearlessly scaling cliff faces no man has ever climbed before - without even using a rope.
With his superhuman agility and impressive upper body strength, the 26-year-old has already been hailed the best climber of his generation.
"In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move." "There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory [..] that this has already happened."
"Because she’d never heard of me, she made the quite reasonable assumption that I was a Dante writer. Therefore, I couldn’t be making any money at it. Therefore, I was most likely teaching somewhere. In order to set her straight, I had to let her know that the reason she’d never heard of me was because I was famous."
Hilarious parody with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson playing top fashion models (movie magic, right?) who are pulled into an international criminal conspiracy. So many jokes, visual gags, and great quotes you can take from it. Rumors of a sequel being written, but nothing definite yet.
It's a very strange combination of no less than half a dozen genres, and depending on your tastes, it's either masterful or pretentious. I enjoyed it, but it's definitely a strange ride, regardless. Check out tvtropes's article on it, before or after viewing.
