Zombies: Gotta Love ’em

No movie nerd, and I don’t care who you are, can escape the gravitational attraction of a Zombie movie. The humble Zombie is the ‘plain wrap’ brand horror vehicle. It’s like making a Zombie movie is a ‘get out of writing a plot free’ card, so, even if the makers of a Zombie flick put […]

Stargate: Chevron Axed Encoded

Good science fiction is hard to come by. Great science fiction is rare and when a series which fits into the later category is axed it’s pretty hard for a nerd like myself to take. No matter how the SCI FI Channel spins it, the fact that Stargate: Sg-1 isn’t coming back for an eleventh […]

EOL: Maintenance Report 20060820

Postings here at elroyonline have been a little thin lately, mostly for two reasons. The first is that I commissioned to do a large amount of design and video work for an upcoming event, of which I’ll post more about when I’m able. The other reason is because of the problems that I’ve been having […]

Blade: No Stalkers for Biel

Maybe it’s because I’m really starting to get into Spike TV’s Blade series but I’m actually pretty disappointed to hear that a proposed spin off to Blade: Trinity wont be happening. As I’ve said before, I wasn’t at all a fan of the Blade films. In particular I was never a fan of Wesley Snipes […]

Sunshine: Rose Byrne

Not long after I made this post, iBrett and I had a discussion about some other upcoming projects involving up and coming Aussies. One such project which iBrett mentioned was Sunshine and after doing a bit of poking around, I have to say the movie looks like it could be a lot cooler than the […]

EOL: Icon Gallery Updated

With the permission of their repective developers I’m jumping the gun a little bit and updating the OS X icons page here at elroyonline with four more icons. Three of the icons are for apps that Wincent Colaiuta has developed (or is currently developing) and the other is for an application that was created by […]

Halo: Episode One?

If there’s one movie genre that can universally make everyone, young and old, cringe it’s the video game adaptation. This, of course, is thanks largely to ex-boxer turned talentless assbag, Uwe Boll, who has pretty much single handedly set the genre back to the days following the release of the Super Mario Bros. movie. However, […]

Batman: The Dark Nolan

The other day, when I made a post about the upcoming Nick Cage film NEXT, I used that film as an example of the kinds of things (and the kind of people), which when involved in a film or television endeavor, can make me nervous about the final outcome of the project. Well, had I […]

EOL: Maintenance Report 20060804

In an attempt to avoid having to actually go through with the cornea replacement in October, the eye surgeon referred me to a contact lens specialist. The theory being that if we can achieve an ‘acceptable’ level of vision using corrective lenses then the surgery, the prospect of having to deal with anti-rejection drugs and […]

Movies: Anticipation Anxiety

Being the movie geek that I am I often find myself torn between being excited about the news that a particular movie is being made and being disappointed by the notion that said movie is being made, but made by people whose track record leads me to suspect that the end result may not live […]
