This past weekend Reed-pop hosted Star Trek Mission NY at the Javits Center; as part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration. I don’t think anyone can argue Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future has inspired many to act in a way to create a similar world in this reality.
There are three movies that make up Chappie. Short Circuit, RoboCop, and Chappie. Not to be over shadowed by these over lapping story lines, we also have a performance piece by Die Antwoord.
I was listening to the radio this afternoon, NPR to be exact, when they said this weekend was the end of the Saturday morning cartoons.
A little less than a month ago I09 had a post that there will be a remake of The Day of the Triffids. So it seems that Hollywood has green lit a reboot/remake of the original 1962 movie.
Today the courts gave internet providers (ISPs) the ability to charge companies money in order for them to gain access to customers.
I just finished watching Helix on the Syfy channel. I really wanted to like this show, but found it lacking. Ronald D. Moore has worked on some really good shows in the past, BSG and DS9, so when you see his name attached to something you kind of expect good things.

They killed in the most efficient and easy way (for…
While at New York Comic Con this past weekend I was lucky enough to get into the Max Brooks' panel. Mr. Brooks was there to promote his latest work The Extinction Parade (Avatar Press), but of course before we could even get to it, Max had to address the "the Brad Pitt elephant sized question in the room" -WWZ (the…
With the Hollywood churning out remake after remake; I've come to expect at least a modicom of good story telling. Instead it looks like we are going to get a lot more T&A gore fest and less scary I just pooped my pants horror.
Man was not made to see with the aid of pieces of glass.
Over at Boing Boing there is a quick piece about the robohand. Primarily it's all made on a Makerbot 3D printer. I think we can all agree that it's pretty awesome that people are able to get at least a semi-functioning prosthesis. For some it's a chance to get back what they lost, for others it's an opportunity to…
Finally got to see Oblivion last night. I felt like I was watching either one of the worse rip offs or a homage to some of the best science fiction scenes and video games.
