• The Phantom Controversy: Fan Creates His Own Opening Crawl For ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’

    Posted Friday, December 23rd, 2016 03:00 pm GMT -5

    People just cannot seem to get over this opening crawl business for ‘Rogue One.’ I mean, I get it, every ‘Star Wars’ movie before ‘Rogue One’ featured an opening crawl, it was part of the DNA of the franchise, everyone looked forward to the opening fanfare of the series blaring over those scrolling yellow words, […]

  • Final Frontier Friday: ‘Family’

    Posted Friday, December 23rd, 2016 02:30 pm GMT -5

    Welcome back for another ‘Final Frontier Friday‘! When I realized that this week’s column was going to fall on December 23, my first impulse (because I am just that shameless) was to wonder if I could find a ‘Star Trek’ episode that was even vaguely Christmassy. It took all of five seconds for me to […]

  • Free Will And Heptapods

    Posted Friday, December 23rd, 2016 01:00 pm GMT -5

    Spoilers for Arrival follow. I’m baffled by ‘Arrival.‘ I overheard a theatergoer that exited after me say “I don’t get it,” a sentiment shared by my father who accompanied me. I remember what it was like to not be the science fiction aficionado I am now and empathize. I get not getting it, but I […]

    Guillermo del Toro is arguably the most imaginative filmmaker of his generation. You know it, I know it, and Netflix knows it. The streaming giant has partnered with del Toro to produce the upcoming animated series ‘Trollhunters’ which premieres today. Netflix recently released the first season of ‘The OA‘ mere days after dropping the show’s […]

  • Movie Review: ‘Morgan’

    Posted Friday, December 23rd, 2016 11:01 am GMT -5

    There’s precious little that’s new and provocative in the sci-fi thriller Morgan, but its still sufficiently well-assembled that it’s worth a watch, albeit on HBO, Netflix or Redbox. The production team tried to deliver a dark commentary on humanity and genetic engineering, but the big reveal was so obvious that it might as well have […]

  • Produce Dave Filoni Wants To Connect ‘Rebels’ To ‘Rogue One’

    Posted Friday, December 23rd, 2016 10:00 am GMT -5

    With ‘Rogue One’ finally in theaters, it’s time to turn our attention once again to the future of ‘Star Wars’. No, not ‘Episode VIII’ – though that is now less than a year away. I’m talking about ‘Star Wars Rebels’, the animated series that chronicles the early days of the Rebel Alliance. While ‘Rebels’ takes […]

    Continuing the momentum it picked up during the first 4 episodes of Season 2, ‘Con Man’ picked up the story right where it left off last week, and found Wray meeting with Bobbi across the street from her new “office” (a Mail Boxes Etc) to find out whether Diego had offered him a part in ‘Doctor-Cop-Lawyer.’ […]

    Posted Thursday, December 22nd, 2016 06:00 pm GMT -5

    Gal Gadot has already chimed in to defend Wonder Woman against attackers that feel that the scantily clad superhero may not be the best choice to represent gender equality.  The United Nations appointed the DC Comics hero as an honorary ambassador to help raise awareness of the unfair treatment of females in various cultures.  The […]

  • Throwback Thursday: ‘The Man Who Lost the Sea’ by Theodore Sturgeon (1959)

    Posted Thursday, December 22nd, 2016 05:00 pm GMT -5

    To me, the sci-fi great Theodore Sturgeon has a writing style that is truly hit or miss. Either you love his stream-of-consciousness prose, with unexplained yet wholly personal metaphors, or you don’t. I happen to be one of the people who stands right in the middle of it. When it comes to his ‘Star Trek’ episodes, […]

  • Luke Hemsworth Shares Why There Is A Delay For The Second Season Of ‘Westworld’

    We’re already aware that the second season of ‘Westworld‘ has been delayed but actor Luke Hemsworth (‘Infini’,’Kill Me Three Times’) is weighing in that this isn’t something that fans should be worried about. The first season was delayed on release from the showrunners not having all of their ducks in order and that seems to […]

  • Past Time: Stephen Amell Discusses The Future of ‘Arrow’s’ Flashbacks

    Posted Thursday, December 22nd, 2016 12:00 pm GMT -5

    One of the more frustrating aspects of ‘Arrow’ has been the narrative structure regarding the flashbacks, which during the first few seasons had been a real asset in building up the character and establishing his heroic credentials, but only served to drag down the narrative in the 3rd and 4th seasons. Fortunately for us all […]

  • Making Good Time: Netflix Releases Trailer For Time Travel Series ‘Travelers’

    Posted Thursday, December 22nd, 2016 11:00 am GMT -5

    Netflix just continues to roll out the original series these days, and with the increasing frequency of these shows, there should hopefully come more out of the box thinking as they try to keep things fresh and original.
