One of my favorite movies of all time is Jurassic Park. When I first saw it, I really thought that is how dinosaurs would look like if they were alive today. I had never seen how a behemoth of that size would move so quickly and naturally, as opposed to costumed men in T-Rex suits (Godzilla) or stop motion animation creatures (Land of the Lost TV show). The subsequent sequels, part 2 and 3, were aberrations and lacked the Spielberg directorial touch. Once again, Spielberg does not want to direct the 4th part, Jurassic World, but executive produce. Will it return to be as good as the original, improve upon it or fail miserably once again? Watch the trailer and be the judge. Read More

It’s tough to sometimes find a good DVD movie to watch at home with your wife, kids or just by yourself, there is just too many films to select from. That’s why it is ideal to have the actors and directors themselves, from the movies you watch them in, recommend what you should be seeing in the comfort of your own home. One of the most literate when it comes to cinema, in particular, the horror and thriller genre, is Guillermo del Toro. He along with his protegé provide some excellent classics that should create some great movie memories.
Here are Guillermo del Toro’s 3 DVD picks you should watch tonight:Read More
In what was supposed to be called “E.T: Nocturnal Fears,” Steven Spielberg was given a sequel treatment that he had to pass on because it was too dark compared to the original. “ET: The Extra-Terrestrial” grossed almost $800 million worldwide and is considered one of the greatest works of Spielberg’s career.
Speaking to the American Film Institute, Steven Spielberg explained why “ET 2” never happened. “Sequels can be very dangerous because they compromise your truth as an artist,” he said. “I think a sequel to ‘ET’ would do nothing but rob the original of its virginity. People only remember the latest episode, while the pilot tarnishes.“
According to sources, the ‘E.T’ sequel had a second spaceship land at the end, but the aliens onboard are evil. They’re searching for a stranded extraterrestrial named Zrek (aka ET), who is sending a call for “Help.” The evil creatures are carnivorous and are an albino fraction (mutation) of the same civilization ET belongs to. The two separate groups have been at war for decades. Later in the script, Elliot and his friends are kidnapped and violently interrogated by Korel (the alien commander), demanding to know the whereabouts of Zrek. Thankfully, ET is aware of the attack and arrives to save the day.
But it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Spielberg won’t consider directing an ‘E.T’ sequel: “I can’t imagine ever making another one, unless I wake up one morning with a master thought.”
