7 June 2013


Birthdays
Bill Hader b. 1978 (Custer in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian)
Karl Urban b. 1972 (Dredd, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings)
Tarik Ergin b. 1961 (Lt. Ayala on Star Trek: Voyager)
Liam Neeson b. 1952 (Clash of the Titans, Batman Begins, Darkman, Star Wars: The One That Must Never Be Named Again)

No pretty girl on the list, so the next tiebreaker is best known actor and I think Liam wins that fair and square. Many happy returns to all on the list.




Movies released
The Purge released 2013


Prediction: 7 June 2022: For the evening hours of June 7th and 8th, no crimes committed will be investigated or prosecuted.

Predictor: The Purge released 7 June 2013

Reality: This looks more like a horror movie than sci-fi, but it has an exact date in the foreseeable future, and that's what this blog is all about.

In terms of plot, it kinda reminds me of the Landru episode from the original Star Trek series. How this idea makes for a better society didn't make sense when I was a kid and doesn't make that much sense now.

Another quibble: not all ambulances have them, but when they do have a cross it's usually a red cross on a white background. The symbol on the poster does not signify "no emergency services". It really says "No Swiss allowed".

Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!

An exact date for the Rapture. (Spoiler alert: already passed and still a lot of people calling themselves Christians still hanging around.)

Join us then... IN THE FUTURE!

  1. Being sued by the Red Cross is not something that a "blockbuster" film budget can handle, let alone a drive-in flick.

    (Example: there is a Very Specific Disclaimer in The Living Daylights about how the copter should NOT be confused with, iirc, the International Red Cross. Would wager some sum of money was donated to them as well--something close to the entire budget of The A/r/c/h/o/n/s/ Purge.

  2. Liam was also in Darkman. Superheros count, right?

  3. Is it such a bad idea, banning the Swiss? I mean, what have they done for me lately?

  4. Ken: Thanks for the info. Always loving the knowledge drop in the comments,

    ZR: Absolutely counts, I just zoned on it. Fixed the post. Thanks.

    Daniel: I like keeping things more open. In general, their chocolate is often not dark enough for my tastes, but they make keen watches and a damn fine knife.
