Death is a sure shot sniper, ending people with extreme prejudice since the beginning of time. It doesn’t care what color you are or which god you worship, when Death has you in its crosshairs you better hire someone to carve out your epitaph. Perhaps death is easiest... Read more

Leonard Nimoy’s passing prompted me to write some long-in-the-kitty reviews for the original cast. His work will never be forgotten and his contribution will be forever recognized. Adios, Sweet Prince! “Star Trek” both literally and allegorically has always been about re-birth, starting anew; one door closes, another opens. Star... Read more

AsimovLives reviews Transcendence (2014).
Larry Clark’s Bully is a fascinating and disturbing film to watch. It plays like an afterschool special penned by a modern day Marquis de Sade. It views suburbia as the crusty sheets on a seedy motel bed. A group of aimless teenagers drift through life like plankton in a... Read more
No movie has any right being this much fun…but it is! Night of the Creeps (1986) – Horror – USA – Rated R Written and Directed by Fred Dekker Starring Jason Lively, Tom Atkins, Steve Marshall, Jill Whitlow, David Paymer From space slugs and zombies to sorority babes and... Read more

Today’s new Blu-Ray & DVD releases!
After a bout of flu, IAB is slumming it and makes lists. Oscar-related lists.
Horror movies are slimed with the stink of terrible sequels, a reputation that has been earned as one success turns into one more gluttonous go at the trough. Halloween, Friday, Nightmare, Texas Chainsaw all tested their fans loyalty, but occasionally, amidst the craven greedy and misguided capitalism, emerges some... Read more
Flu-patient IAB yammers about some news of the week
AsimovLives reviews The Forever War by Joe Haldeman.

Happy friday, everybody. Is that Superbowl-hangover starting to wear off finally? Time to wade through the non-superbowl – or left shark(isn’t it the cutest thing?) – related news. There were of course the superbowl-trailers, but they were already covered by my colleague Detective Dee in his article. MALICK-RELATED... Read more
Mention politics and immediately many think about political parties. But the subject of politics is more than just party divisions. The Ancient Greece philosopher Aristotle called Man the political animal, and by that he meant to say that all subjects about human and human creation are in the realm... Read more
This time, I will take a look at the most important (?) trailers that aired during the Super Bowl breaks. Trailers I ignored: Terminator: Genisys and Kingsman: The Secret Service, as they are almost identical with the first trailers. Pitch Perfect 2, Insurgent, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and... Read more

Hello. I’m AsimovLives, a regular contributor to The Supernaughts, and I love Science Fiction. I also have interests in music as well, namely electronic music, a passion I have had since I can remember. And if music and science fiction combine, I’m in for a double treat. In this post,... Read more
Your fast food crass commercialism nightmares brought to a screen near you in a movie that dares to ask the question, “What if Ronald McDonald became a slasher?” A question that should never have been asked…or answered. Drive Thru (2007) – USA – Horror – Rated R Directed by... Read more
Hey, hey everyone, Nothing too great this week. The best one is for a film that came out twenty years ago but the Blu-Ray has no extras on it, so even that’s a bummer. Maybe you’ll see something you want. If so, click on the image and be transported... Read more
The Detective: “I really like chasing you.” The Driver: “Sounds like you got a problem.” After his directing debut, the Charles Bronson and James Coburn-starring Great Depression-era bare knuckle-fighting epic “Hard Times”(1975), Walter Hill set his sight into a whole different type of story. Taking the films of Jean-Pierre... Read more

A few weeks back, the Shut Up Kids podcast had John Ary on to discuss our Top 3 and Worst 3 films of 2014. Among the mentioned (by John, actually) was Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys abomination. The conversation then turned to how we dislike much of Eastwood’s body of... Read more
This is an attempt to create a personal Top Eleven list for the movies released in 2014. Of course, this list is potentially incomplete, as I could not catch up with all interesting productions of that year yet, because of different release dates in my country or a lack... Read more

The time has come to take a deeper look at the latest (and maybe last?) trailer of the highly anticipated follow-up to Marvel Studio’s mega-hit from 2012. I should maybe say in advance that my whole knowledge about Marvel stems from the MCU exclusively. Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)... Read more
Hello. I’m AsimovLives and I love Science Fiction. And spaceships. Science Fiction is so strongly linked to the imagery of space travel in the future that nothing is as iconic to the genre than the spaceship. Show a picture of a spaceship, even a caricature; you immediately know what... Read more

Chappie (2015) directed by: Neil Blomkamp starring: Dev Patel, Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Sharlto Copley (mo-cap) Official synopsis: After being... Read more
Look, anyone who knows me, knows that I always steer clear of any kind of political statements. But watching the sickening events that took place in France in the past week, and seeing on TV the millions of people marching there right now, this felt the only right thing... Read more
Mornin’ all, time for another biased look at some of the newsworthy items of the past week – the first whole week of 2015(how many still have problems writing that? I’ll probably remember it somewhere around Midsummer…) “CRIMSON PEAK” DETAILS It’s no secret, that Guillermo Del Toro’s... Read more
As far I can remember I have always loved Science Fiction. In the beginning I do not recall one single moment in my life where I was not always aware of the genre and loved it. As far I can tell, it has always been there in my life.... Read more
Hospital Massacre (1981*) – USA – Horror – Rated R A.K.A. X-Ray Directed by Boaz Davidson Starring Barbie Benton and nobody else you’ve likely ever hear of. The tagline for this wretched movie should have been “please kill me…kill me now!” A young girl receives a Valentine’s Day card... Read more

Hi. As my first official article here at the Supernaughts, I decided to make a little web comic. My personal little satiric stab at the sometimes controversial studio decisions, that we all love to rip to shreds at our comments sections all the time. This will be the first... Read more
