1992's The Lawnmower Man was one of the many flicks adapted from the library of Stephen King; naturally, that can be good or it can be bad. For my tastes, King's stories haven't always worked well up on the silver screen, and I vaguely recall seeing this theatrically and not thinking much of it. I believe I had even written something at the time in which I said, "The film is too ambitious to even know what it's about" or something equally snarky.
In any event, here's the plot summary as provided by IMDB.com:
"A simple man is turned into a genius through the application of computer science."

"Buck Rogers visits the planet Phibocetes with a landing party, hoping to gather some thurbidian crystals to power the Searcher. Though the planet is believed to be uninhabited, the landing party soon comes across a "mummy" that mysteriously comes to life and wanders off into the bushes. Buck soon meets another life form - a young girl - who has no memory of who she is or where she came from. The crew is puzzled when blood samples from the girl match that of the creature and assume the girl will eventually become one of the mummy-like beings. Both life forms also seem strangely affected by…Continue

Love him or hate him, Paul W.S. Anderson has had an awful lot of time to tinker in the various franchises of sci-fi filmdom. He's contributed to the Resident Evil property, as well as Aliens Vs. Predator, and still managed to find the time to pony up something called Pandorum (saw it, wasn't that impressed). Still, ya gotta love a guy who keeps trying. Mr. Anderson was born on this day back in 1965.…Continue

He may be gone, but he can never be forgotten. Ain't that the truth? Our beloved Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott! He was played by the legendary James Doohan (shown above from Star Trek: The Next Generation's episode "Relics" alongside Levar Burton), who came into our plane of existence on March 3! We miss you, Scotty! God's speed, wherever you may be! Doohan was born on this day in 1920.…Continue

She served with distinction aboard Star Trek: The Next Generation's Enterprise-D, and the ship was a safer place knowing that she was there. Another year wiser, another year lovelier! McFadden was born on this day in 1949.…Continue

Say what you will about the new-fangled Battlestar Galactica, but I preferred the wholesome, do-gooder charm of the original just a bit more. And Starbuck? A girl? No way! Dirk Benedict remains Starbuck in my mind, and the actor who played him celebrates another year growing older and wiser today! Benedict was born on this day in 1945.…Continue
