MovieWatch 2013

It’s time for my annual(ish) list of movies I want to catch this year. Strap in and let the trailers wash over you like pure adrenalin. (Not that I know what an adrenalin shower is like, ’cause I kind of think that would be a bit… icky. Though that’s not really the feeling I think you… Read More »

My marriage’s “Nemesis”

Last night, my wife and I watched Star Trek: Nemesis on Syfy (I can’t type that without thinking “dumbest name ever”). For those who are a bit forgetful, I’ll remind you that this is the final “Next Generation” Star Trek film, starring Jean-Luc Picard and crew. This is widely regarded as one of the worst… Read More »

The best cake I’ve ever seen

I’m not even exaggerating. This blows my mind. There are certainly cakes that are unbelievably beautiful (and this is not one of them), but the level of detail on this cake, and the obvious love put into it, is staggering! That it has a sci-fi theme is just, well… icing on the cake. You need… Read More »

Star Trek – title recitation record

So this guy named all the episodes of classic Star Trek in 1:39 at a World Record Appreciation Society event… apparently setting a record. Eh… no big deal. That’s just relatively simple memorization (albeit a long list). I’ve got a friend who can name the title of every episode within 13 seconds of the start… Read More »

Tuesday TubeWatch: Death Star Trek Wars

That is some seriously well-integrated CGI. I love it. The Stormtrooper’s “Boo-ya” at the end kills me. To be a total geek, here, I gotta say that a beam meant to take out a planet would not stop at taking out one ship, though. And what’s the Enterprise doing just sitting there? Fishing? Totally unrealistic.… Read More »

Watchmen, Star Trek, and Star Wars (sort of)

(Grab your pacemaker, it looks like I’m making two posts in two days! Will the madness ever end?) A few things came to my attention today that I just couldn’t wait to pass on. First of all, as you undoubtedly know, Watchmen opened today. No surprise there. But did you know these stats? 90% of… Read More »

Tuesday TubeWatch: Super Bowl Movie Roundup

If you were the head of a movie company, which movies would you choose to spend $1.5 million per 30 seconds to advertise during the Super Bowl—an event watched primarily by people who like to watch men running and slamming into each other? Let me give you a hint: it wouldn’t be Wendy and Lucy.… Read More »

Catch up on Sci-fi news

A few things that are now probably old news for some of you have come across my reader. Sorry I didn’t get to pass them on earlier. I done been busy. So this’ll be just a quick list for the most part. The next Family Guy: Blue Harvest special will parody Star Wars: The Empire… Read More »

Star Trek (2009) full trailer released

First off, if you haven’t yet, go see the trailer. This one is worth the HD download. It’s pretty. Okay, back already? Good. Looks pretty good, don’t it? I’m not going to obsess over the details here. I’ll do that at other blogs. Just wanted to put my quick two cents in: I can already… Read More »
