THE HOLIDAY TRADITION CONTINUES…
Due to overwhelming response to the previous edition, the second episode of Edmerican National Radio Theater is now up. In this episode we listen an episode from the classic anthology sci fi series: X-Minus One. This sci fi show boasts that listeners will live a million “could be” years on a thousand “maybe” worlds.
In this particular episode, “The Parade”, we hear that people can be sold on ANYTHING with good enough marketing. A good solid suspenseful sci fi story akin to that of the Twilight Zone, this is a second episode you definitely don’t want to miss.
“Mr. Anderson…surprised to see me?”
“Unfortunately no one can be told what the Matrix is…”
OKAY…a small change of plans. Since Big D and others are very interested in hearing my thoughts on Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace 3D (which I saw yesterday), I figured I would switch The Phantom Menace with Chronicle in my review order. So for those of you waiting for my Chronicle review, look for it at the same time tomorrow.
As far as this current review goes – well, I’m going to do things A LITTLE BIT differently. First off, I’m NOT going to get into a full review of The Phantom Menace itself – I will only be looking at how good the 3D is (since that is the main selling point of the re-releases). Secondly, because this isn’t a normal movie review, I decided to draw inspiration from an article I read earlier today on Moviefone.com. In a nutshell, I will be recounting my experience viewing Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace 3D through a time log that I kept during the film – similar to what I did in the early days of The Wide World of Sports-Entertainment when RAW and Impact were going head-to-head.
And with that, let’s get this show on the road…
On July 2, 1996 – 15 YEARS AGO – Independence Day invaded the cinema skies. The cultural (and technological) impact that it would leave would be felt for years, eventually becoming known as one of (if not THE) greatest disaster film of all-time.
In honor of the 4th of July – as well as the film’s 15th Anniversary – I have decided to give it the RETRO-Review treatment here at SuperfriendsUniverse.com. Starring Bill Pullman, Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Mary McDonnell, Judd Hirsch, and Robert Loggia, and directed by disaster film guru Roland Emmerich, it’s Independence Day.
