If you search IMDb’s incredibly handy “plot keywords” for the phrase “rollerblading,” only twenty-eight titles pop up, and most of them aren’t even truly concerned with rollerblading as an actual plot element. The number one rated entry is “Skitchin,’” which is actually a video game from 1994. The number two rated entry? The UK’s uproariously funny series “Absolutely Fabulous,” which has absolutely nothing to do with rollerblading. You’ll have to scroll all the way down to the exact middle of the list – entry number 14 – to find Rob Bowman’s Airborne (above 2002’s Rollerball, below an Erik von Detten-starring Disney movie called Brink! about a pack of teens who call themselves “Soul-Skaters” because “Hammy Sad People Skating Together Because You Don’t Get Me, Mom” wasn’t punchy enough), which is an immense cinematic tragedy, simply because Airborne is the best film about rollerblading ever made. It also turns twenty today. There »

Yet another film from my youth and one that I distinctly remember from the pages of The Dark Side magazine (back in my pre-internet days when I used to buy horror mags religiously), Dr. Alien is a film that, despite my knowledge of it, I have yet to see. So this new DVD from 88 Films is a welcome addition to my ever-growing B-movie library.

I’ll be damn if I didn’t recognize Corin Nemec in “Dragon Wasps”, the latest Syfy Channel movie of the week waiting to be announced. He sure has come a long way from “Parker Lewis Can’t Lose”, and for a moment there his career got something of a resurgence when he joined (albeit briefly) the cast of “Stargate: SG1. Nowadays, Nemec spends his time doing low-budget creature movies like “Dragon Wasps”. Hey, those mortgage bills don’t pay themselves, you know. So what’s “Dragon Wasps” all about? Wasps that grow up to be fire-breathing dragon-ish creatures, I would imagine based on the plot synopsis and trailer below. When her father mysteriously disappears on an expedition, beautiful entomologist Gina Humphries and her fiery assistant, Rhonda, set out to search the rain forests of Belize. Due to numerous robberies and assaults in the jungle, they are escorted by heavily-armed soldiers. »
Jason Lee has joined the CBS pilot Second Sight, an adaptation of a BBC drama about a police detective (Clive Owen in the original) dealing with an eye disorder that gives him hallucinations. Shockingly, the handicap helps him to solve crimes.
AMC is developing the webseries All Star Celebrity Bowling to become a TV series. The title may not sound particularly compelling, but it's from Chris Hardwick's Nerdist Industries, which definitely gets me interested.
I have nothing against Ashley Abbott, but I far prefer the amazing Eileen Davidson on Days of Our Lives, even if her current storyline isn't especially great (maybe they could bring back one of Davidson's other characters?) Thankfully, her return to The Young and the Restless will only last a few episodes, keeping her free to stay on Days.
