The Missi Pyle Experience is a wrap.
- by Missi Pyle
Before I go, I want to give y'all a sentence or two about eight photos, a few of which Nathaniel asked me about.
Galaxy Quest (1999)
Tony Shalhoub is a fucking dream boat. This movie was the best experience of my life. Also every day Alan Rickman sat and ate lunch with us like a real human being, not in his trailer. He is like a beacon from heaven. I am so lucky I got to do this movie.

"What if?" is the burning question our favorite sci-fi movies ask: What if Earth was invaded by aliens or giant spiders? What makes us human once we start bending the laws of genetics and robotics? And if we worked out really really hard, would we ever have Linda Hamilton's arms in "Terminator 2"?
Here are some of the best of the sci-fi genre now streaming on Netflix, including Chris Evans in "Snowpiercer," Bruce Willis in "The Fifth Element" and plenty of Godzilla and the crew of the USS Enterprise.
1. "Antiviral" (2012) Nr
David Cronenberg's son, Brandon, makes his film debut with this gore-filled horror flick about a company who deals in viruses collected from celebrities since people want to be infected with the same diseases as the ultra-famous.
2. "Barbarella" (1968) PG
The cult film, starring Jane Fonda as the sexy space babe of the title, may be overlong, but it's an eye-popping must-see '60s flashback. »

When it came to sci-fi satire in the 1980s and 1990s, the options were thin on the ground with only the BBC's "Red Dwarf", the "Space Quest" games, and a brilliant film every now and then like "Spaceballs" or the first "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" to tide one over.
One of those great films was 1999's "Galaxy Quest" which became an instant classic amongst the demographic it targeted, and in the fifteen years since its release there's been the occasional call for a sequel.
However one of the starts of the original, Enrico Colantoni who played the alien leader Mathesar, has revealed that he for one hopes a follow-up doesn't happen. He tells io9:
"I hope not. I think it's a great movie all by itself. It stands alone, and to make something up, just because we love those characters, and turn it into a sequel - then it becomes the awful sequel. »

Everyone's favorite macabre family is wonderfully portrayed by Anjelica Huston as Morticia, Raul Julia as Gomez, Christopher Lloyd as Uncle Fester and Christina Ricci as Wednesday. Spooky fun, just in time for Halloween.
2. "The Bad News Bears" (1976) PG
3. "Bernie" (2011) PG-13

StreamFix is your one-stop shop for the web's best streams. Here's the best of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Crackle this week. Netflix "Galaxy Quest" It's strange that we choose to watch other movies when we can just watch "Galaxy Quest" again and again. The awesome movie puts washed-up TV actors from a cult sci-fi hit (played by Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, Tony Shalhoub, and Alan Rickman) into a real-life space adventure. Perfect chemistry for such an offbeat cast. I'd say, "Sigourney Weaver has never been more bad-ass!" but she achieves such heights in pretty much every movie, doesn't she? "Alfie" I'm not much for remakes of Michael Caine's best work (Remember the abysmal "Sleuth" revamp?), but Jude Law actually succeeds here by recreating the debonair man at the heart of the 1966 classic. Susan Sarandon, Marisa Tomei, and Jane Krakowski all pay his conquests here. Oh, Alfie. What's it all about? »

It is a shame that very few people know Sam Rockwell’s name. Most casual moviegoers are probably at least familiar with his face though, due to his scene-stealing turns in films as diverse as The Green Mile, Galaxy Quest, Iron Man 2 and Frost/Nixon. However, he also has a stellar resume of independent projects, including critically acclaimed turns in Moon, Conviction, The Way Way Back and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.
Rockwell is formidable at playing men with a sense of arrested development. (his turn as the buffoonish but tender Owen in The Way Way Back even got him some long-overdue Oscar buzz). That made him a prime choice to join the cast of Laggies, a new comedy-drama from director Lynn Shelton.

During a promotional interview for his latest film John Wick, Keanu Reeves has given an update on the current state of the planned third outing for Bill S. Preston Esq and Ted “Theodore” Logan in Bill & Ted 3, which has Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) attached to direct from a script by original creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon…
“We have to get the script in the right place,” Reeves tells Coming Soon. “Chris and Ed have been working really hard over a couple of years to get the draft in the right place. What is the reason to make this movie besides nostalgia or the love of these characters. Where can they be in their life that can be a story that is worth telling or has something in it and is funny? They have that. It didn’t help that the first script that they brought in was probably budgeted at $150 million dollars. »

Bill and Ted, the two slackers that could...survive. With Alex Winter (Bill) bemoaning having to produce this project at the slow Hollywood pace while still in the public eye, it's a constant reminder not to get too excited, just a little excited.
Well, Keanu Reeves might have blown all of that and turned up the excitement level revealing that Bill & Ted 3 with have paradoxes, wormholes and much ado about a fated song. First, he talks about the ongoing process looking for a financier for a potentiially $150 million dollar script for a property that has no international appeal, Then he got down to the coolness.
Coming Soon got the scoop:
Reeves: Yeah, Dean's re-read it and I think he likes it. It's kind of like… I call it "gravity," you »
There is a trio of Part III sequels currently creeping towards becoming a reality that we constantly hear about. Last week, Ghostbusters finally took a giant leap ahead, confirming director Paul Feig along with its completely rebooted all-female concept. While Ron Perlman failed to provide any substantial update on Hellboy 3 over the weekend at New York Comic Con, John Wick star Keanu Reeves did have an update on Bill & Ted 3. He was able to give new story details and some interesting time twists, extrapolating on what co-star Alex Winter had to say earlier this month. There will be wormholes!
Keanu Reeves claims that Dean Parisot is still attached as a director. He may be best remembered as the driving force behind Galaxy Quest and he was at the helm of last summer's sequel Red 2. Reeves also confirms that the story will still revolve around the creation of the greatest song in the world, »
I'm just one of many fans that would love to see this Bill & Ted 3 movie happen. The script for it has been in development for a couple of years already, and one day they'll get it to a point where it will be able to move to the next step. During an interview with Comingsoon.net, Keanu Reeves discusses the film in great detail. He talks about where it is in development; some of the hold ups that it has been having; director Dean Parisot; and the story. He even describes a scene from the movie, which sounds hilarious.
"We have to get the script in the right place. Chris and Ed have been working really hard over a couple of years to get the draft in the right place. »

It seems like it's no closer to arriving on screen, but Bill & Ted 3 is still very much happening. In a new interview over at Coming Soon to promote his upcoming movie John Wick, Keanu Reeves has given an update on the film, and the work of screenwriters Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson.
"Chris and Ed have been working really hard over a couple of years to get the draft in the right place", Reeves said, revealing that getting the screenplay to lock where it needs to be has been the prevailing issue. The challenge: "what is the reason to make this movie besides nostalgia or the love of these characters. Where can they be in their life that can be a story that is worth telling or has something in it and is funny? »
It's been 15 years since 1999, because that's how time works. 1999 is generally considered a great year for movies. Transformative, even: A diverse array of films, directed by a fleet of up-and-coming filmmakers, all arriving at the multiplex back when cable was lame enough and the internet was slow enough to make the multiplex a place that mattered. If you happened to be young in 1999—or young-ish—it was possible to feel like you were seeing the entire cinematic art form evolve in front of you. Fifteen years ago this month was Three Kings and Fight Club and Being John Malkovich, instant-cult »

According to Deadline, RZA — real name Robert Fitzgerald Diggs — will star alongside Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick in the film, which follows a young woman (Kendrick) who falls head over heels for the seemingly perfect man. However, as the story unfolds, we learn that the titular Mr. Right just so happens to moonlight as a hitman — now that’s a gnarly skeleton to keep locked up in the closet.
Nonetheless, in terms of RZA’s role, it’s understood the celebrated rapper will step into the shoes of Shotgun Steve, a trained marksman who collaborates with an opposing gangster. At this stage, that’s all we have in terms of plot details, though Deadline reports that Max Landis — the scribe behind 2012’s excellent found footage superhero flick, Chronicle. »

Rumors of the Super Troopers sequel have been wreaking serious havoc with my emotions. The sequel idea was mentioned quite awhile ago, and seemed to be confirmed by members of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe that produced the original cult classic. Then we heard very little for or against the movie, and I was beginning to wonder if it was one of those wishful ideas that never gets off the ground – like the Galaxy Quest sequel. Thankfully, it sounds like Super Troopers 2 is indeed coming to the big screen.
Steve Lemme, who played Mac in the first Super Troopers back in 2001, recently confirmed that the much-anticipated sequel is finally getting made. It seems that some little legal disputes were holding things up, but everything seems to be on track now.
Here’s what Lemme said:
You know, it was a combination of having to settle some of the legal disputes about making a sequel, »

The last word we got about the long-developing sequel to follow Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey had Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot attached to direct, but beyond some hints from Keanu Reeves about the plot of the film, we haven't heard anything new about the sequel. But Reeves' co-star and Wyld Stallyns bandmate Alex Winter recently caught up with Yahoo and he says it's still in the works, but it's just taking awhile to get the script in perfect shape. But the good news is that producers and financiers are already on board, but the script is still getting in shape to go into production. When asked about the long road Bill & Ted 3 has already had, Winter said: “The thing we had going against us is that word got out. That was kind of a bummer. It just takes a long time to put a movie together. »

Not only is the third Bill & Ted film still in the works, but actor-director Alex Winter – who co-starred in the original franchise as his excellency Bill S. Preston Esq. – says the comedy sequel is shaping up to be "really sweet and really fucking funny." Winter talks at length about the long-rumored project with Yahoo Movies UK, noting that the film will focus on their iconic characters "all grown up, or not grown up."
"But it’s a Bill & Ted movie, that’s what it is," Winter continues. "It’s for the fans of Bill & Ted. »
It feels like Bill & Ted have really just been in the air recently. My twitter feed the past few weeks has been ripe with references to both Excellent Adventure and Bogus Journey. The saturation got to the point where I even rewatched the former film earlier this week and found it surprisingly sharp. So it's with no degree of displeasure that I report that there appears to be some forward momentum on Bill & Ted 3. Several years ago we learned that a script for the film had indeed been completed by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon but when you're trying to get a third installment of a twentysomething-year-old franchise off the ground that's the least of your problems (especially considering the fact that the original two films, while profitable, weren't box office juggernauts). But, according to Alex Winter, there's some real movement on the project, which will be directed by Galaxy Quest »

Over two decades have passed since the second film in the "Bill and Ted" series, but fans are still keen to hear anything they can about a third film starring a now more mature Ted 'Theodore' Logan (Keanu Reeves) and Bill S. Preston Esq. (Alex Winter).
Much like "Ghostbusters 3" and "Zoolander 2," there's been talk of a "Bill & Ted 3" picking up steam in recent years even if there's been little actual movement. Recently, Alex Winter spoke to Yahoo and confirmed reports about the general storyline:
"[Bill & Ted] will be 40-something and it's all about Bill and Ted grown up, or not grown up. It's really sweet and really f-----g funny. But, it's a Bill & Ted movie, that's what it is. It's for the fans of Bill & Ted. It fits very neatly in the series. It's not going to feel like a reboot.
The conceit is really funny: What if you're middle-aged, haven't really »
