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 pureÂ 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 should take away from watching these trailers… so… look, just get excited, okay? Sheesh, you people are so literal.)

Out of the ashes of our future destruction, a new hero has been born. Gabriel Bright. Beacon of hope. Defender of justice. Burdened, as are we all, with the knowledge of what is to come – and the responsibility to prevent it.
View now, the future we must change:
So, what you just watched (you did watch it right? I mean seriously, how hard is it to press a simple play button? That’s all . . . → Read More: The Birth of Gabriel Bright – DC Universe
Lots of series finales showed up this year. Some of them were only supposed to be season finales, but the shows were cancelled. Most of the time, they didn’t know they were being cancelled when the finale was filmed, which leaves us fans in a bit of a pickle, dealing with completely open-ended stories – and even full-on cliffhangers. But this is where we find ourselves, and there’s nothing to be done about it except . . . → Read More: Super-Review: Cancelled shows
If you thought he was gone, you weren’t paying attention.
He’s back! He’s opinionated! He’s Australian! He’s spent more time thinking about pop culture than is probably healthy!
And that last bit actually pays off in this, the second half of our conversation, as Lee Sargent and I concentrate on pop culture and movie/TV news and rumors, including a run down of why Wonder Woman’s shorts are annoying, which Pixar films shouldn’t get sequels (but . . . → Read More: TIDBABSH 2: Part 2: Return of The Australian
Green Lantern – First Flight
With characters that have as huge of an existing storyline as Green Lantern, it’d be easy for a movie like Green Lantern: First Flight to get lost in trying to add in all the cool stuff and cameos that could be covered. That isn’t the case here. This is a lean movie. At 70 minutes, you could actually argue that it’s too lean. But I still liked it.

Here are a few Science Fiction/Fantasy tidbits I picked up on the smoke-signal network recently.
Like a ship wandering through the seas of Hollywood, it looked like Narnia sequel The Voyage of the Dawn Treader was going to be lost as Disney debated dropping the property after The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and Prince Caspian didn’t do quite as well as they’d hoped. Well, apparently they’ve been steered to the correct port, because . . . → Read More: Sci-fi news roundup
Well, here we are with more sci-fi news. This time it’ll be a mix of things old and new. Strap on your propeller hat and hang on, ’cause here we go…
Spider-Man 4 is apparently going to shoot in 2010 for a 2011 release. This is information gleaned from an interview with J.K. Simmons, who plays J. Jonah Jameson in the films. Sam Raimi is on-board as director and Tobey McGuire is set to reprise . . . → Read More: Sci-fi rumors and news catch up

Looks like I am officially blogging. I am too cool for words. (Ironic, isnâ€™t it.)
Thusly did this, my first blogging experience, begin. Pretty sad, really, but there you have it. Now here we are, three years and over 400 posts later, and I figure it’s about time I looked back to see if I’ve ever . . . → Read More: Three years of yammering on…
Well, my last sci-fi news post was a bit late, but all this news is at least recent-ish.
First off, two bits of Battlestar Galactica related stories:
The Sci-Fi channel has apparently officially given the green light to BSG spin-off “Caprica” with a 2010 kickoff.
The series, which will focus on the the Earthlike planet of Caprica as two rival families deal with, among other topical issues, the broader implications of their societyâ€™s emerging . . . → Read More: More recent sci-fi updates
Smallville’s a repeat tonight after the mid-season cliffhanger two weeks ago. Not sure where the plot is going? Come on… Chloe is still possessed by Brainiac, Doomsday is a raving murderous monster who just wants to be loved, and Clark is going to save everyone, but take a beating in the process. That’s all without any spoilers.
Yeah, this season has had problems, but I’m looking forward to the beatings.Â
