Hey folks, Harry here… I’m a 3D supergeek, the active shutter at home 3D glasses provide the best 3D I’ve seen.  It’s just – amazing stuff.   But I also love theatrical 3D, though more and more it feels many theaters are marginalizing it due to a lack of passion from theater goers.   Amongst my fave 3D has come with the apaptation of old 2D movies into 3D, like WIZARD OF OZ, PREDATOR and TOP GUN.   Having TERMINATOR 2 joining that group is thrilling, though not overly surprising.   We know that James Cameron has discussed doing this to T2 and ALIENS has long been a plan.  Today, on the anniversary of its release in 1997 upon this very day… they posted this:
August 29th 1997: The day Skynet first became self aware.

August 29th 2016: the day you first saw the brand new poster for Terminator 2 in 3D. Coming to theaters in 2017.

Rest in Peace Gene Wilder

You were the dreamer of dreams.

Read the full article on AICN

Hey, guys. Quint here. Gene Wilder has been a part of my life since before I can remember. It’s weird how someone you never met could share a similar standing as your parents, but that’s exactly how I feel about Wilder. He’s always just been there for me, either as the mischievous morality focused madman Willy Wonka or Victor Frankenstein (it’s pronounced Frawnk-En-Steen). He was a father figure, cool uncle and goofy big brother all rolled into one.
As I grew older I naturally discovered more of his work, with his Waco Kid performance from Mel Brooks’ Blazing Saddles being my favorite, but I’d be lying if my earliest childhood memories of the man aren’t the most cherished.
 

 
You can’t talk about Wilder’s career without emphasizing his turn as Willy Wonka in the classic 1971 family film WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. Everything about the movie is great, but you can’t watch that film and not realize it rests squarely on Wilder’s shoulders. His turn is equal parts childlike, ornery, loveable and psychotic and it really shouldn’t work. Wonka’s in his own world and the joy he gets at messing with people is borderline mad, but that makes him an absolutely irresistible figure for kids.
Wonka is like Wizard of Oz in that it will always finds an audience with children, no matter how many generations pass. In that way, Wilder will be immortal.
The demented chocolatier will always be the most iconic role of Wilder’s career, but it’s unquestionable that he was
