I’ve never been a huge Warhammer 40,000 fan, but it’s been slowly corrupting my brain for the last few weeks as Berin’s been talking about the novels on and off at Uncle Bear and fellow Blackrazor Damon picked up not[…]Read more
Why was the the Looking Glass station setup to connected to Penny’s office? We don’t know where Penny, or more specifically, her father and his corporation, fits into the larger LOST conspiracy, but I think its safe to say that[…]Read more
With November’s Herculean feat of creativity behind me, I’ve turned my tired eyes back to the DVD player and the stack of Netflix envelopes that piled up during my self-imposed exile to my third-floor office.
Included in this horde of discs was the first disc of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 4 (in which Buffy and the Scooby Gang go to college), the Bruce Willis action flick Live Free or Diehard (in which technophobe John MacClane must save the world from hackers) and the one shot episode Battlestar Galactica: Razor (which tells the story of the Battlestar Pegasus’s escape form the Cylon’s burtal assault on the 12 Colonies).Read more
Discovery Channel has Shark Week. I want Nuketown to have a Monster Week. I thought about doing this last summer, but simply didn’t have the time with Luke having just been born. This time around though, I really want to[…]Read more

He said there’s no movie in the works, and that in follow-up comments said it was unlikely unless a studio asked for it … but that’s a bit different from saying we’ll never see Serenity again.
Personally, I’ve accepted this. Serenity was a good capstone for the series, and while there are still unanswered questions I’d love to see answered (what was the deal with Book anyway? And those blue-handed assassins?) I can live with the fact that I’ve got 13 episodes and one movie to remember the series by.Read more
Movie geeks can film their way to cinematic glory with the first-ever Dungeons & Dragons Fan Film Contest. The film contest is seeking 5-minute video segments dealing with D&D, with the winner receiving video editing equipment, a computer and a[…]Read more
When Bryan Singer left the X-Men franchise to direct Superman Returns, I couldn’t help but feel a little dread. The first X-movie got off to an uneven start (mutagenic wave? killing off Senator Kelly?) but was ultimately satisfying. X-Men 2[…]Read more
I took a break from watching Nowhere Man on DVD this month and last to get caught up on some movies, including The Triangle, The Island, The Aviator and Flightplan. The Triangle Inspired by the resent arrival of a review[…]Read more
