Upcoming sci-fi films show there's still plenty of originality in Hollywood

    Wow, after the extreme bomb of "The Last Airbender" where Manoj Night Shyamalan, in his arrogance, destroyed the live version of one of the best animated series ever made, he can still get a job? Yes, after all these years, it still makes me angry that someone can be so arrogant to think they NEED to remake a highly successful series to the point that the characters bear no resemblance to the originals and even the pronunciation of names are changed.

    Hollywood never ceases to amaze with extremes of idiocy. I guess if you throw enough money at enough projects something has to come up smelling like a rose. "After Earth" will likely be the last movie I watch this summer, if ever because of Manoj's involvement.

    "'Interstellar,' .... is said to be based on the scientific theories of Kip S. Thorne, a theoretical physicist, astrophysicist and expert on relativity at Caltech who postulated that time travel could be possible with wormholes."


    It may also be interesting to note that Kip Thorne is a native of Logan, UT.

    @ John Charity

    Right on!

    Haven't seen the inside of a movie theatre too much these last few years. I don't enjoy most of what is produced and am sickened by much of it. Too many of my friends from high school got suckered into mindsets subconsciously adopted by some who watch graphic movies and play graphic video games. We were all typical teenage boys. But most of us got involved in violent games and movies. Only a few of us broke out of the cycle in high school. Now too many of my high school friends are in jail (violent crimes and the like). They weren't like they are now when they were 12 and 13.

    Mark my words. Many of these movies will have fantastic special effects. Some will even have a semblance of a plot and passable dialoge. A few may even have reasonable acting. But all will contain gratuitous sex, violence, and profanity. Contrary to the theme of this article, this fact is hardly worthy of celebration.
