Space is fun. I can’t say that I have ever been there, but I tend to live vicariously through other people. Other people in this instance being, Tom Hanks, William Shatner, and Harrison Ford.

Why is space fun? An endless void of stars, galaxies, and everything else that is out there that I don’t know about. These endless possibilities open up endless opportunities for new movies and new ideas set in space. Shooting on site is a bit difficult, but if you can manage the trip to the space production studio, the space sickness wears off…so I’m told.

In the spirit of all things space, specifically Interstellar’s release date nearing (November 5th) I wanted to discuss a few of the cooler space themes in film. Specifically- black holes.  Continue reading

Some Minor Spoilers May Apply!

As much as we love our heroes, as seen in MBTI: The Types (of Types) of Heroes, where we examine the kind of heroes each type are in fiction, the villains are what makes their exploits so intriguing to watch. How can you have a phoenix to rise if he doesn’t burn first? C’mon.

And before you press on, understand that while we may sympathize with many villains, it’s their actions that make them such, regardless of how complex they may be. Continue reading

MBTI: John Constantine- ISTP

As one of comics’ few characters that ages naturally (kind of), Constantine has had a fickle existence. On at once he can be selfless and make sacrifices to save those he doesn’t know- yet he’s also the biggest dick in comics.

While ISTPs are generally known for their “What you see is what you get” lifestyle, there’s not much about John’s appearance to make you think he isn’t a jerk. Though expectations are meant to be played with, aren’t they? Continue reading

Stars: Wes Craven, Robert Englund, Heather Langenkamp, cast and crew of the majority of The Elm Street films

Not rated though the language, gore and violence is present throughout clips of The Elm Street films, all of which are rated R. Running Time- 240 minutes, 2010, Documentary

Compare to: Behind the scenes of Horror films and the like

Available on Netflix, Hulu

A couple months ago, over the course of about five nights, I would end each with a bit of this film. It’s about four hours yet any time I had to put the computer away, I’d hate to. If you’re into Horror at at all, even if you’re not a Freddy fan, you’ll enjoy this.

Heck, if you’re just a fan of behind the scenes stuff and you don’t like Horror, this might give you a new perspective on it, becoming a fan in the process. Continue reading

5 Properties that Deserve Movies (But Aren’t Gonna Get It)

This article serves as something of a sequel to my 2012 article 5 Properties that Should Never be Made into Movies. Or maybe its Bizarro brother.

We’re all fans of those things that will never be made into movies. As great as it is to know Hollywood isn’t going to pillage some of our favorite things because they’re too obscure or the budget would be huge, there are some things that would just be cool if they could just nail it.

But alas, for one reason of another, it just doesn’t seem likely for the following entries. Maybe its better this way. At least, that’s what I tell myself. Continue reading

MBTI: Your Multiple Personalities

Ever feel like nobody knows the “real you?” Of course you have! Everybody has at one point or another.

Unless you’re lying to yourself right now thinking “No, I’ve never thought that.” Which then makes you one of us because your way of separating yourself is by pretending you don’t think the same things most people do. Pow, got you.

Anyway, everybody has thought that they’re different in a way those around them can’t understand. Sometimes it’s in a pretentious way and other times, it’s a bit more justified. In either case, the “real you” and the face you put on for everyone are all you, it’s just a matter of how you’re feeling at the moment. There is a fence between the you at home and the you at work but it’s all in the same neighborhood.

Accepting the good and the bad will allow to see yourself in a clearer light and bring MBTI and your life into better focus. Continue reading

Well, it’s been a ride but I’m finally done with zombiesruineverything.com.

Just kidding. But for now, Game of Thrones characters have been typed and though there are plenty of other important characters introduced and that will be introduced, we’ll add as we go along.

Here’s a quick directory for anyone needing a shortcut. Continue reading
