What Will He Find Out There Doctor? His Destiny…

6 04 2008

Sad news today as Charlton Heston passed away at the age of 84. I know that he was Moses and Ben-Hur, but I’ll always remember him for playing the role of George Taylor in Planet of the Apes and Beneath the Planet of the Apes. I guess that’s fairly obvious based on the title of this website and it’s address. Some of the other tributes have included:

Electicity and Lust’s Weekly Clearout
Cinematically Correct (though check back for a promised tribute).
The Washington Post
The Associated Press

Twilight Zone Marathon

2 01 2008

serlingrod.jpgI admit it, I spent New Year’s day on the couch all day watching the Twilight Zone on The Sci Fi Channel. It’s interesting, we noticed that this year episodes seemed to be grouped by theme so you’d get two or three in a row surrounding maniac children with mind-control powers or the end of the world. I also noticed that Rod Serling seems to have a few themes that he includes in a lot of his work, including The Planet of the Apes: man’s struggle alone against the universe, people out of place with their time or surroundings, the outsider, the end of the world, etc. Overall, it was great to watch about 15 of the episodes, spotting Burgess Meredith, Mary Hartley, Robert Duval, and Robert Redford (playing Mr. Death). Why can’t they make TV like that anymore?
