I have Geostorm set to record on Cinemax on Friday. Saw the preview for it a couple of days ago and it looked interesting.
What I'm REALLY looking forward to is "Blade Runner 2049" on Saturday. I LOVE Blade Runner.
I like Cloverfield. I'm waiting to see a direct sequel, though I've read that 10 Cloverfield Lane is supposed to be really good.
am programming for repeats of both of these... just to compete with my DVR that's full of SG-1s from El Rey Network (I should just buy the compendium on Amazon).
Well, I finally watched Geostorm. It was enjoyable.
I did laugh a lot, though, as I think it's quite possibly the most egregious movie I've ever seen when it comes to the laws of physics evidently not applying.
I have. One of those has some regurgitated version of Season 8 that El Rey Network used to broadcast with. It was converted from 3:2 aspect to widescreen as zoomed in, but the synching and framerate was totally messed up.
Thinking that may be the last season it was in syndication before it went to SciFi (or, SyFy) - or was it Showtime... I forget which came first.
And now, admittedly, I am showing that I know way too much about this subject. 🤪
Comet TV (OTA) plays a lot of the SG series. Even though I'm a sci-fi junkie can still only watch the same episodes so many times. Sure wish one of the broadcast stations would come out with a good new sci-fi series but afraid those days may be gone.
Yup. Last I saw they had SG1 and Universe. El Rey has SG1 and Atlantis.
Went through SG1 a few times, am now going through Atlantis although I missed the first one by a few days.
Universe was kind of ok for what it was, and I'm a huge fan of Ming-Na, but there was something about that show that was just too different - even boring at times. I mean, where was the gate travel? Think they tried to be too like SyFy's rehashed version of Battlestar Galatica.
Also, anything shot with a 'nervous camera' style just makes me nauseous after a while. Never understood why that was considered fashionable.
