Trailers from Hell: Stanley Kubrick's Game Changer '2001: A Space Odyssey'

10 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Destination Outer Space! kicks off at Trailers from Hell, with director John Landis introducing Stanley Kubrick's epic sci-fi classic, "2001: A Space Odyssey."Many a baby boomer’s most treasured recollections of the 1960s include one or more altered-state viewings of Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke’s game-changing science fiction film, which combined extraordinary, state-of-the-art special effects with a metaphysical meditation on life, death and rebirth played out in Super Panavision 70. Douglas Trumbull’s groundbreaking visual effects remain as convincing as any found 45 years later in Alfonso Cuaron’s equally awe-inspiring Gravity. Many sci fi fans approached 2001 with skepticism since it was touted as the pinnacle of the genre, only to become lifelong devotees. It would be interesting to contrast Martin Balsam’s rejected performance as the voice of the computer Hal with that of Douglas Rain, who was hired to be less “emotional” than Balsam. »

6 'Psycho' Movie Characters We'd Like To See On 'Bates Motel'

3 February 2014 9:00 AM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

I don't know about you guys, but I am beyond stoked for the return of 'Bates Motel' on A&E, which kicks off its 2nd Season on March 3rd. As a die-hard Psycho fanatic (hell, I made a documentary about the entire original franchise), the funnest part of the show for me has been seeing what direction they take this new version of the story. By setting it in modern day and changing a few key aspects from the original movie, they've already created a unique new mythology and universe for these characters to flourish in. And because of that, anything goes! We're in new territory from this point on.

So while I have no true insight into what the writers have planned for this new season, I thought it'd be fun to hypothetically toss out the names of a few characters we've gotten to know from the »
