I find it interesting that you compared Renny Harlin to Brett Ratner, as both of them directed Hercules movies last year. Sadly, Harlin’s film with TWILIGHT alumni Kellan Lutz was a failure, while Ratner’s version with The Rock was a lot more successful. Harlin has had a hard time matching his 90s success since the aughts, although I’ve read that his *cough* found footage movie The Devil’s Pass is pretty good.

Apparently, the makers of the Sharknado series have said in interviews that they would keep making Sharknado movies as long as people were interested, and that they have the second trilogy planned out to complete the story arc. On that note, I wonder what happened to The Asylum’s website (http://www.theasylum.cc), which hasn’t been updated for a while and has no mention of the fourth Sharknado movie.

Finally, did you see the trailer for KONG: SKULL ISLAND, which will be set in the same universe as GODZILLA ’14?

Also, I watched the trailer for SPLIT and then read the Youtube comments. I really shouldn't have. A number of commenters were trying to guess what the final twist will be and then judging the movie on their speculation. People need to die.

Regarding Beware! The Blob: Goddamnit Cory!

As for that "banned" movie I mentioned, it's The Path to 9/11. Released for a 2 night broadcast in September of 2006, a miniseries made by Disney ABC with a $40 million budget. And despite being nominated for 7 Emmys and winning 1 Emmy, and despite the rave reviews from critics and audiences alike, this film/2-part-miniseries has never re-aired again, and has never had a VHS, DVD, or Blu-Ray release, much less a digital release. Even though they would take a dive financially without being able to recoup their losses from making the film, they still did this. To say anymore as to the how and why, and the whole entire history of this whole film, it would start a flame war, and it would get too ugly for reasons that would become obvious if you knew more about it.

Don't let the title fool you, this isn't some conspiracy theory film. This is a docudrama, a very well-made docudrama mind you (one of the best I've ever seen, and also a very intense thriller), that tells of the events that lead to 9/11, starting with the World Trade Center bombing from 1993. This was also made with the intention of being shown annually for every 9/11 anniversary.

If you want to know more, say so, and I'll e-mail you the rest of the info, including a way to see the movie itself, in it's uncut original format edition (the version that aired on TV had cuts made to it prior to airing). I'll leave you with my personal belief that I believe film censorship is one of the worst things people can possibly do, and this quote:

"What has happened to Path to 9/11 is the most significant act of censorship in the history of media in this country." -- David Horowitz




So, would you like to know more?
