Most of the good Sci-Fi films have already been listed. I know of one awful Sci-Fi film that you guys probably haven't seen or heard of. The title of the picture is Leviathan; it was directed by George P. Cosmatos.

Never have I seen such a piss-poor imitation of Alien. There's even a fucking self-destruct sequence at the end! The design of the creature is gut-bustingly hilarious too. I could not believe that the great Stan Winston created such a cheap looking, goofy monster. This monster is akin to something from the Power Rangers show. The ending is one for the books too. Have you ever seen Peter Weller utter the words, "Take that mother fucker!"? Well, you must. It was a really good laugh.


I'd be surprised if anyone here hasn't heard of that movie.

The only bright spot on Cosmatos' filmography is Tombstone. Poor guy. I still dig the hell out of Tombstone. That brings to mind Kilmer's trashed career too. I'd like to see him make a comeback. I doubt that will happen though.

Kilmer has had some really excellent roles since Tombstone. He made a lot of noise for his role in Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang.

Yeah, but can you remember (without looking it up) anything he's done since?

I love Kilmer his performances in Tombstone and The Doors sealed it for me. I did watch his latest movie out on video but it was bad and I can't remember much about it. DIdn't watch the whole thing. It was about some kind of experiment gone wrong or some such. It was bad. But who gives a shit. He was Jim Morrison.

Kilmer off the top of my head has done...

Deja Vu..Not Bad.
Conspiracy..watchable.
Spartan...decent...
Streets of Blood...Bad
The Chaos Experiment and Columbus Day which I havent seen...but I will.

He also did the voice for Kitt in the Knight Rider Reboot...that was pretty bad.

I like still like Kilmer and check out most of his new movies.

No one mentions the great Wing Commander with multiple Academy Award winner Mathew Lillard. Awesome movie. Awesome effects done by Digital Anvil.

Anyone have an opinion on Sphere? Dustin Hoffman, Sharon Stone, Micheal Crichton.

I did not know he was in Deja Vu, and The Chaos Experiment got a bit of news here but it was not looking good...

Deja Vu, what I saw of that was pretty terrible...
Conspiracy, never heard of it before. I just looked it up and I have no interest in seeing it.
Spartan is from 2004, before Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
Streets of Blood...Bad you say, so might be needing to be skipped
The Chaos Experiment looks terrible
and Columbus Day could be good.

I had to look it up, I could not recall much of his recent work...

Delgo, really?
Felon, Wha... Some good cast in there but looks made for cable
2:22... Peter Dobson is in it, I might have to check it for him alone...


So, recently Val Kilmer's career has not been what it used to be for sure.
Didn't he try politics for a bit?

Someone needs to hire him for something that looks good and is good.

What?

Chaos Experiment is the one I tried to watch. I wanted to like it but didn't make it very far. Take one for the team Emy and try to make it all the way through so I can find out if it gets better.

Maybe when it gets on tv.

For now, too much good stuff waiting on my shelf...

I still need to watch Baby Blood (if anyone has it on their Netflix queue, my bad it's taking forever for you to get it, I've had it for months...), Chrysalis, Pola X, Confessions of Pain, Red Cliff part one, Red Cliff part two, Chocolate, ...

The only thing keeping me from watching some of those if that I need to be paying perfect attention and lately I have been constantly sewing while watching movies. Those curtains and bedspreads won't make themselves!

Apollo 13

I have the most vivid fucking dreams. When they're good it's great but last night I had a horrible nightmare. I woke up at 4 and couldn't get out of bed fast enough to shake it off. So I sat in the living room and thought about Apollo 13 to take my mind off of it. What an amazing story and movie. It's just a miracle that they were able to get back to Earth and survive. A great story of human triumph.

Also, Apollo 13 was the first movie in HD that I saw that made me think I just had to get into it and couldn't wait any longer. The colors looked so amazing that when I saw it playing in Best Buy I had to sit on the couch there and watch the entire movie. I'm gonna watch it tonight.

Is Apollo 13 considered Sci-Fi?

I thought it was a drama since it is "based on true events" and looking at the story, it seems more like drama then sci-fi.

Yeah it would be but this was as good a place as any to bring it up. Have you not seen it?
