Jun 26th 2010 12:04PM You're right about Rock Hudson. You mean a series like every week? I thought it was a one-time movie?
Jun 25th 2010 9:52PM Wasn't The Martian Chronicles done several years ago on television? They tried to remain faithful to Bradburys writing style, but it wasn't as exciting as the book. Maybe somethings don't translate well.
What I'd like to see brought to the Silver Screen is Robert A. Heinlein's "The Menace from Earth" and " The Long Watch". THOSE would be great films!
Mar 24th 2007 10:13AM This type of travel is not likely to become standard. Or else we would all have had helicopters in our driveways already. The Bell jetpack from the '60s, and like the ones today, still suffer from the same problem... limited fuel capacity equates to limited flight time. Not long enough to travel a distance to make it economically feasible. The fuel is a pressurized hydrogen peroxide mix. Very expensive and very unstable. I agree with the other person who said it is only good for shows and demonstrations. Plus, the fact it is NOT a toy like some people use their high-powered sports cars for. Can you imagine some jerk getting drunk, strapping on his jetpack, flying (if you can call it that) too high and run out of fuel? That’s one trip straight down with a great big sudden stop. Don’t expect to see this at a local dealership near you anytime soon.
