We Lost Pratchett

I am very sad to know we lost Terry Pratchett, the author who created Disc World and so many wonderful characters and situations. His web site is down at the moment (probably crashed the server from so many hits), but the BBC announcement mentions a few facts that most authors can only dream of. 70 [...]

Something to Do: Movies

There are two very good choices this time around. The one I want to see first is Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb; the third film in the Museum trilogy takes place at the British Museum this time, and once more looks to be a world of fun. Also this week The Hobbit: [...]

360 Degree Cosplay Selfie

I have no clue who came up with the idea, but the results are fun to watch. The 360 Degree Cosplay Selfie was part of the fun at MCM London Comic Con London in October. I assume they did it again this weekend at the MCM London Comic Con Birmingham this past weekend, but I [...]

11th Dr Regeneration, Lego

Just because it is both silly, and very well done, here it is: the regeneration of the 11th Doctor into the 13th. The numbering assumes the War Doctor existed in the order his episode aired, not his progenitor and descendant Doctors proper order. Just to show you how well Blob Van Dam did at creating [...]

BFI Player Sci-Fi Collection

The folks at the British Film Institute has recently made available an interesting collection of the best global cinema on-demand, some on a pay-per-view basis, some for free, most of it amazing, and a few things you just won’t find anywhere else. Movies like Only Lovers Left Alive, Under The Skin, and most of the [...]

The Imitation Game trailer

In 1938, the Nazi’s were poised to take over the world, and one of the tools that gave them the power to attempt it was the Enigma Machine. This device let them encrypt their communications in a way impossible for anyone else of the time to break, and Europe was at risk of being lost [...]

New Kingsman: The Secret Service trailer

Kingsman: The Secret Service is another great Marvel comic book transformed into a movie. Written by Mark Miller (Kick-Ass) and illustrated by Dave Gibbons (Watchmen artist), the graphic novel was a lot of fun. From the look of this trailer the movie should be just as entertaining. It will be hitting the big screen on [...]

Something to Do: Movies

This week we get several interesting choices, starting with The Maze Runner based on the great YA novel by James Dashner. I expect this one to pull the best numbers at the box office because of the popularity of the book, so it got the first mention. In limited release we have the new Terry [...]

Something to Do: Movies

The new Terry Gilliam sci-fi film The Zero Theorem gets released on line tomorrow. It is the story of a computer hacker who is assigned by god to discover the meaning of life, if any, and report back so he can understand it himself. As near as I can tell, this is the perfect companion [...]

This Week’s Wil Wheaton/John Barrowman adventure

I enjoy the hell out of the The Wil Wheaton Project, and this week I think he has outdone himself. John Barrowman joins Wil to get dressed up in Steampunk style and go party down the town. Lots of Arrow comments and Dr Who references, but what really makes the show special is the level [...]
