I actually saw X2 (is X-Men United really the subtitle? I didn’t see it in the movie)a couple of weeks ago, so some of the details have faded – but hre is another mini-review. Summation – a good sequel.
I usually like to watch something more than once before I go as far as assigning scores to Nitpicks and such, so here is a no-score review of the new Disney/Pixar film Finding Nemo. In brief – I don’t care how young or old you are, go see it.
The SCI FI Channel announced that Gale Anne Hurd (who produced the upcoming Hulk and Terminator 3) will produce the six-hour miniseries based on Kim Stanley Robinson’s Red Mars. Robinson will consult, and the screenplay is being written by Gregory Widen (Highlander). Finally, some headway…
Zap2It is reporting that the plotlines have been revealed for the next two films in the Alien series. Number 5 has the aliens attacking Earth (in “drop ships” supposedly shown in the first movie – IIRC that was some other alien’s ship). Number six has the aliens attacking other planets with Ripley turning to the “dark side” (huh?) to save civilization.
I probably shouldn’t mention this, as it will skew the odds…but starting June 6th, you will be able to register on the SCI FI Channel’s official web site for Stargate SG-1 for a chance to win a trip to the MGM production facility in Vancouver for a walk-on role. The season premiere for Stargate SG-1 is June 13th at 9pm ET (with a bonus episode at 10pm).
The official web site for Fox Searchlight’s new zombie thriller from the makers of Trainspotting is up, and they have trailers (Large, Medium, and Small), and even the first six minutes of the movie (Large and Small). After a raid on a research facility by activists, a virus is unleashed in Britain that within seconds sends the infected into a murderous rage. Special previews are on Friday the 13th, with a limited release on June 27th and wider release in the following weeks.
The creator of the original V miniseries is developing a new version. Kenneth Johnson said on Ilana’s V Page that he delivered the first story treatment to NBC, but he stresses that it is a LONG way from actually happening.

Has Created His Own Site To House His Dune Art Projects
For more than a year, LoneStarFedaykin has been a wonderful and exciting presence in the online Dune art world,
so we all knew it was only a matter of time before he’d wield his crysknife-shaped pen with his own vibrant art site.
In DuneArt.com, LoneStarFedaykin houses his finished Dune works,
plus his sketches and comics. He also has some promised projects
in the work (with a little help from his friends).
