The Tomorrow People is a blast from the past, completely redone for a modern audience. The CW is a great channel for these kind of projects, being willing to try out something new and give it a chance, unlike Fox and others of that ilk. The original Tomorrow People was a British children’s show which [...]
If you don’t already know about it, there is a wonderful site dedicated to how the past saw the future called Paleofuture. The original site is at the first link, and started off being a project for a class that Matt Novak was taking back in 2007, which he figured would be taken down when [...]
101 pictures of C’Thulhu? Yep, not the band, but images from the books written by the guy they named themselves after, have been collected up over at The Lovecratfs Man. I have played with the big green guy a bit myself (OK, sometimes he’s red), here is an image and an animation I put together…
These are just amazingly detailed works from Jason B. Thompson, an American Manga artist (yes, there is a difference between Manga, Graphics Novels, and Comics) who has put together a few tasty interpretations of some classic H.P. Lovecraft stories. The White Ship was the first one I looked at, and I knew instantly I would [...]
There is really only one choice this weekend: Oz the Great and Powerful. Based on the Oz books of L. Frank Baum, it is a prequel to the 1939 classic Judy Garland film, telling the story that came before. I am so ready for this one, and will definitely be doing the IMAX 3D showing!
There seems to be a distinct lack of live action genre releases this week, either Movies or TV. And the western animation is a re-release, Peter Pan, Diamond Edition, which brings this classic out in Blue Ray format for the first time. We do a little better with Anime, but not by a lot. Toriko: [...]
The Lone Ranger and his faithful sidekick Tonto started out on Radio in 1933, and ran about 40 shy of 3,000 episodes, ending in 1954, a mighty impressive run. The program had a spin-off in 1938, in which the Lone Ranger’s nephew Dan’s son, Britt Reid, became The Green Hornet with his faithful sidekick, Kato. [...]
The new trailer came out on the 14th, but I haven’t posted it yet, so hear it is. The Great And Powerful Oz is the first Oz project I have been excited about since Tin Man surprised me several years ago.
Before Dorothy headed to Oz, many others proceeded her. One of them was a circus magician later referred to as The Wizard, and coming up next year Disney is going to be telling his story, in Oz The Great And Powerful. L. Frank Baum wrote a lot of Oz books, and while this wasn’t one [...]
There are two interesting choices this week. The genre film is Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged: Part II, continuing the story begun with part 1 last year. This is in somewhat limited release, so you may have to hunt around for it, but trust me, it will be worth it, especially if you managed to see [...]
