Starship Troopers is a must read. Armor is great. Even though the respected authors can't stand each other. The Forever War and Forever Peace are two great books by Haldeman. I haven't read his new one yet, but it is probably worth picking up. These are all military sci fi, so if that's what your lo...

Spiderman 3 was weak. There's no getting around it. By far the worst of the series. I hope they can continue them going, because Spiderman is an icon and worthy of screen time. Sam Raimi is tired, it's time to move on with a new director and a different direction. As for Kirsten Dunst not coming bac...

Jackson should without a doubt direct The Hobbit. He and his team did a tremendous job with the other three, and it would be a slap in the face to any fan if he didn't do The Hobbit.

Sam Raimi's name has been thrown around, is that what we want The Hobbit to become?
