The Planets to Scale

From the web site Space Facts, this little infographic gives a very clean representation of the relative sizes of the planets in our solar system. I think if they would have included Pluto its size compared to the others would have made the not-a-planet argument obvious.


Steampunk Kung Fu: Tai Chi 0

The movie will be hitting the big screen on October 19th, but here is the first trailer to get you ready for Tai Chi 0, the Steampunk Kung-Fu movie. While the first two are variations on the same trailer, they are a little different to tilt them towards their target audiences in each country. The […]

Star Wars Detours

Star Wars Detours are a bunch of short animated comedy clips at the moment which I suspect will become a TV show and a DVD fairly soon… after all, it is from the Robot Chicken team. These are absolutely hysterical. And yes, they do have a Facebook Detours pageset.


Continuum Renewed for Season 2

Announced this past Saturday, Continuum has been renewed for a second season. Lots of other great announcements out of Fan Expo Canada, which ran in Toronto over the last weekend. For those of us who have been missing out because we live in the US, it was also announced Continuum will be coming to a […]

Something to Do: Movies

While there are no exciting new movies this week, there is one exciting movie being released in IMAX for the first time: Flying Swords of Dragon Gate IMAX 3D. This is a 2011 remake of the classic Dragons Inn films from China, starring Jet Li, and the 3D is some of the best I have […]

Something to Watch: DVDs

There are two animated full length feature films worth checking out this week, with The Pirates! Band of Misfits being another excellent comedy from the folks who brought you Chicken Run, Wallace and Gromit, and Shaun The Sheep. The trailer alone had me in stitches, the movie itself is a hoot. On the more action/adventure […]

Doctor Who: one week and counting!

Yes, next Saturday night we have a new Doctor Who episode, Asylum of the Daleks, on both BBC UK and BBC America. This episode kicks off season 7 of the New Who series, and continues into next year, leading us to the 50th Anniversary Special. The BBC America trailer covers the season, the BBC UK […]

MARDI gets the pix!

The Mars Descent Imager camera, MARDI for short, took a bunch of 1600X1200 pixel resolution pictures during the decent and landing. As usual with things that happen so far away, the bandwidth of the uplink back to Earth was the choke point on our retrieving the sequence, but now we have it. The original capture […]

Blakes 7 on Syfy

Not the original Terry Nation production that ran on the BBC for four seasons beginning in 1978, but according to the Hollywood Reporter, a brand new production made for the Syfy Channel for the US market. You can find a more extensive article about the project at The Guardian, although the facts available remain the […]

Doctor Who Mega Marathon Trailer

We are rapidly approaching the 50th anniversary, and everyone is gearing up for it. These trailers really set the tone for the New Who 7th Season, which will lead us up to the celebration. The first by recapping the New Doctor so far, while the second pulls from every Doctor back to the beginning. I […]
